Just last week, I wrote a blog about coming back from a vacation from not only work, but also social media and blogging and the rest. I had closen to two weeks off from all of that stuff, and it was just what I needed to recharge the batteries. Strangely enough, however, I find myself … More Vacations are never long enough
The one video game I got for Christmas this year was Persona Q: Shadow the Labyrinth. I waited until Christmas for it for several reasons—my parents needed something to get me, and because I wouldn’t’ve had time to tackle it until after the holiday anyway. So, while some people have been playing this game for … More I can’t put Persona Q down!
My day job has a “use it or lose it” policy when it comes to end-of-the-year vacation time. At the end of the year, any unused vacation time just expires. Thus, between my unused vacation time and the holidays, I found myself with almost two weeks off for Christmas. So, I gave myself some much-needed … More Reflecting on my Break from Reality
I won’t say I’ve taken a break from Super Smash Bros (one does not simply stop playing Smash) but when not playing that, I’ve been playing some Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii. My history with this game is a bit strange. I had rented it from Gamefly shortly after it came out (back … More Playing Donkey Kong Country Returns
Well, it’s that time of the year! The time when ABC Family becomes something worth watching, the time when all the stores are full of people struggling to find a gift that their acquaintance who they barely know won’t hate, and time to string up a ton of lights that may or may not light … More Musing about Christmas
Without going into too much detail, my day job hasn’t calmed down. I had hoped that after the last turbulent week, things would return to a more steady routine. They haven’t. This has been affecting my writing. Writing to me has always been work. Enjoyable work, but I don’t go to it to unwind or … More Getting out of a funk
Incoming positively-charged rant about Smash. Prepare yourself. So, after much crying, sighing, deals with the devil, and so on, I managed to get myself a Gamecube adapter for Super Smash Bros for WiiU. And holy hell, this the way the game was meant to be played! The moment I picked up my wavebird, everything in … More Oh yes, I do so enjoy the Superb Smashing Brothers!
And the last time I shop there. In the past, I’ve spoken in favor of GameStop whenever they came up in conversation. I’ve always felt that, yes, they offer you very little in exchange for your used games, but I’ve never felt like I was forced to accept their offer. Much like haggling on a … More That’s the last time I pre-order a game at GameStop
It’s kind of funny how I have a specified writing time, and I can usually count on my brain to prepare itself for that time on its own. I may not think about my writing for the entire day, but during my hour and a half train ride, usually I focus purely on my writing … More Turbulent Week
AND IT WAS AWESOME. :D This was my fifth TSO concert, and like the previous five times before this, I left the show feeling a sense of amazement and awe at what I had just seen. The show is truly mesmerizing, from the way the lights and sounds sync to the music, to the sheer … More Saw Trans-Siberian Orchestra over the weekend
