For Book Nerds like Me

Have you read the famous book called “13 Reason Why” by Jay Asher? Then you will be excited to know that a Netflix Series based on the book is out coming soon!

I was listening to a morning show this morning and they announced that Selena Gomez is the executive producer for this series.

Escape Rooms Exist!

So a while ago I had seen that there was a Groupon for an Escape Room activity and the people I was mentioning it to were not into it at all. Lately though, they have been growing in numbers and even the Xtreme Action Park which is very popular in my area is opening Escape Rooms themselves.

If you are the kind of person that loves a mental challenge, I would definitely try it. I am lucky that I found someone that wants to do it with me.

Once I try it out I will let you guys know how it went.

What is an Escape Room?

An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are locked 
in a room and have to use elements of the room to solve a series of 
puzzles and escape within a set time limit. The games are physical 
versions of "escape the room" video games.


At least that is what Wikipedia says.

Where did they originate?

According to the Washington Post, after taking off in Asia, Western 
Europe and the West Coast, these attractions are popping up across the 
country.

Are they really that challenging?

It all depends on the Escape Room in your area but for instance, Escape
Room Live DC is "set up so about 30 percent of participants can 
escape in time without help from the gamemaster".

Is it expensive?

According to npr, tickets run around $30 a person at most places, or teams 
can buy out the room.

30 Day Burger Challenge

Okay so I’m doing something I call the “30 Day Burger Challenge” which basically means that I cannot have a burger for the whole month of January.

You guys should try it to! After a long day at work, I don’t blame you for wanting to go somewhere where there you can get access to a quick meal. Who wants to do home to cook? But if we also need to keep in mind that we need to take care of ourselves in order to keep doing the things we want to do.
