  1. Today, @WoTonPrime—the official Twitter handle for the Amazon Prime’s Wheel of Time television show—shared a short video and snippets of concept art. The short video featured Rafe Judkins, the showrunner for the Wheel of Time show, emphasizing the themes in The Eye of the World: “of balance, of gender, and the emotional journey of these characters.” While Judkins talks, several images of concept art flash behind him. Let’s take a closer look! So what can we glean from these images? Fans are already speculating. Here's my t

  3. HAHAH! That's hilarious and an interesting way to look at it! It's a possibility. I know sometimes I shake with anticipation for my dinner when I'm particularly hungry and it always seems to taste so good! My journey for 2020 was to start intuitive eating, and so I was eating a lot more foods that sounded good. So I enjoyed my meals a lot more. I was indulging--even when it was taco salad. But I'm sure the atmosphere played a huge part too. We had an amazing Pizza Hut pizza in Rugby, North Dakota the first night we got there to visit my relatives. I t
  4. Congrats on your progress @Phaedra! That's amazing results! My current routine is pretty similar. I started budgeting 1200 calories a day last August. I increased my veggie/fruit intake. I focused on cooking meals instead of fast food. This really helped me lose the weight pretty quickly. I was down 20 lbs at the end of November. Since then, I have not been as strict with myself. I have started intuitive eating, which is listening to my body cues to know when I'm hungry and when I'm full. Some days I stay within the 1200 range, others I got up to 1500. I don't worr
  5. January: Watch a film from a foreign country Last night, we watched the British film "The Day the Earth Caught Fire" (1961). Wow! My spouse and I were up for some disaster films last night so I Googled disaster movies. A lot of interesting ones popped up, but we chose The Day the Earth Caught Fire. I wasn't expecting a lot as it was made in 1961, but this movie was amazing! The US and Russia perform joint--albeit unwillingly--nuclear tests. The duel bombs have enough force to increase the earth's tilt and push it off its orbit toward the sun. The charac
  6. I’m also a vegetarian now and I know it would be trickier to eat the food if we went back! I also didn’t eat seafood even before I was a vegetarian, so my husband ate the oysters and alligator and turtle soup and I had muffulettas and beignets! I actually had an amazing cheeseburger there—at The Oyster House restaurant. It was somehow better than any other cheeseburger I’d ever had to that date. Why was it so good? I have no idea.
  7. Here’s what I had for dinner today: taco salad! It was about 500 calories. Ingredients: 1 serving Boca meatless crumbles 1/2 tbsp cooking oil 2 tsp low sodium taco seasoning 1.5 servings of lettuce 1/8 cup Mexican shredded cheese A handful crushed Cool Ranch Doritos This could be easily adapted to include any other kinds of meats/cheeses/chips/toppings. It was SO yummy and the Doritos added such a great flavor and crunch!
  8. Hi @PiedPiper! Sorry we missed your visit! 1.) This one is too hard to answer! I watch more movies than tv shows, but I don't think one is better than the other. Adaptations or originals? Depends on how well done they are. Animated or live action? I love both! Again, depends on how good they are. I've seen amazing animated films and awful animated films. Same with live action! 2.) Books: Romance! ❤️ Followed closely by fantasy. Movies: sci-fi. 3.) We went to New Orleans the year after Hurricane Katrina. We did a swamp tour--which wa
  9. I had my last check up with my surgeon the week of Christmas. Everything's healed up fine! The second surgery was so much easier. My breasts are about a C or a D. I'm content for now, but not 100% satisfied. I asked my surgeon if we could go smaller and she said yes. Sigh. Then why didn't you? I'm going to heal up completely this time, and then reevaluate if I want to spend even more money to make my breasts smaller. It's seems so wasteful, but this is something I've wanted since high school. I want to be comfortable! I put on a shirt a few days ago
  10. I liked it too! I know a lot of people have complained about it, but it was fun and entertaining. I really liked that Steve's soul came to inhabit another person's body! When I saw the trailers, I was like how on earth can they bring him back to life? He's 80 years old or something! This made sense to me and I liked how they handled it. I also would love for Asteria to be involved in the next film. My husband said that they have to other movies planned for this Wonder Woman timeline, so I think the chances are good that Asteria's character will make an appearance
  11. Making changes alone can be so hard, Lily! We are here to support you when you need it! What types of changes do you plan on making? Will you be cutting out carbs and processed sugars, increase exercise and veggies? Diabetes runs in my family so I'm always concerned that I'll get it as well.
  12. What is the White Ajah? In Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time series, the White Ajah is dedicated to logic and reason. They are perceived as cold, emotionless, and detached from all earthly ties. Dragonmount's White Ajah isn't so heartless. While we love philosophy and logic and want to debate any topic, we also care deeply about happiness, living our best lives, and being empathetic. We try to use reason to place ourselves in another's shoes. We strive to look at any topic from all angles to understand it completely. In the end, though, we are human, and
  13. Do you watch a lot of movies? Want to get raising reqs for it? Look no farther than the White Ajah’s 2020 Movie Challenge! How it works: Each month will have a different theme. Anyone who’s interested in participating can watch a film they’ve never seen before that fits the criteria of the month. For raising reqs, post a report (at least 100 words) about the film—what you liked, what you didn’t, connections to other films or to real life, share what you know about its historical context, let us know any background info on the actors, director, or others involved with the f
  14. Let's discuss movies! Any movies that aren't being summitted for raising reqs can be posted and discussed here! Remember to keep any discussions civil. We can agree to disagree on all topics covered.
