Been Keeping Off the Grid

I’ve been channeling my sweet zero-fux-given prince Niall recently.

I guess I’m officially ✨✨coming out✨✨ as a 1D stan but much like Niall, I don’t care. XD But yeah, I’ve been keeping to myself a lot. It’s partly on purpose and partly not. I was approached for a number of freelance commissions, and I’ve been handling that on my off-time. Our kitchen light was also broken for a few weeks, and it was an ordeal trying to get a repairman to fix it. Besides that, I don’t know. Just needed some time unplugged I guess.

Still Hot

September’s having a heat wave in the East Coast this year, and do I feel it. We had a semi-mild weekend, but the heat was back for Memorial Day. I live in a very old apartment without centralized A/C, and I feel like sitting by the freezer all day. T_T I’ve been changing Beebo‘s water regularly and sticking him in the fridge at night to keep him cool too. I hope this wave passes soon. Nights have been so uncomfortable. :(

Had a Chill Long Weekend with Sense8

Aunt Flo’s been meaner than usual this month giving me heavier cramps and cravings. For my long weekend, I marathoned Sense8 while finishing a box of cookies and a pint of ice cream with cookie butter all by myself.

Gosh, I couldn’t put this show down! It starts off slow, but each character’s storyline had me invested that I had to keep watching. Sun is utterly badass and Capheus is a precious cinnamon roll too good for this world. And won’t somebody find Lito’s flip-flop?? XD Give me season two now!!

Started Amnesia: Memories

FINALLY THIS GAME WAS RELEASED IN ENGLISH. 8D I played the Japanese version briefly but my Japanese isn’t that great, so I was stoked when I found out that Amnesia: Memories was gonna get localized. The otoge, not the horror game. XD So I suppose you guys will see very little of me until I finished all the routes. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’s available on Steam, Android, and iOS so check it out if you enjoy otoge!

How was your week? I think Snapchat’s been making me lazy about blogging. XD It’s so much easier to add pictures to my Snapchat Story. Let’s be friends! I’m raiscake. :) See you there?

  1. Hwllo! New-ish visitor first time commenter here. :)

    I saw the thumbnail and I was like, “There’s a translationation for Amnesia?!” I’ve been dying to get my hands on that game. I even went as far as to download the original Japanese and read off a fan translation but it was so tedious. That’s going on my wishlist for sure! Now, do I want to play it on Steam or Android is the question…

    I really like the style of this blog post, how there’s a lot of quick snippets, if that makes any sense. You have a lovely website! :)

    1. Hi Edel, thank you for visiting! <3

      I play Amnesia on Steam. Definitely worth the wait! Let me know if you do get it. Would love to talk about it with another fan! XD

  2. It’s always good to unplug after being on the interwebs for so much! I need one of those but it’s not time yet XD. Gaaaaaaaaaaaah, I feel you about the heat wave. We had one today at 102F and it was horrrrrible! I can’t sleep at night because of the heat, so you’re not alone :6. It sounds like you enjoyed your time playing and watching shows :D.

    My week was the same ol’ ;).

    1. Gaah I don’t miss heat in the 100s! I’ve also been having a hard time sleeping coz of the heat. Though it got really cold all of a sudden!

  3. Aahh, I know the feeling. There are definitely times where I’d rather just do things on my own and not see anyone (well, other than my husband, haha).

    That’s rough to be in the heat without centralized AC! Our AC broke down a couple times this summer, and our house got soooo hot. It’s been raining a bit here, which fortunately brought the temperature down a little.

    Oohh, I haven’t heard of Sense8, but that looks interesting. Plus it’s on Netflix, and I really need to use my Netflix account more. I have heard a lot about Amnesia though! I don’t normally play those type of games, but I’m kind of tempted :)

  4. I’ve gotten back into reading and it’s amazing. I love the feeling of being able to just unplug myself from everything and enjoy the time off from the web. Sense8 seems so good, but I don’t know if I can commit to another show or to a show now. Playing Metal Gear Solid V has taken up a good chunk of my time.
