Still Off the Grid
I don’t have a good reason as to why I haven’t been blogging recently. If I’m being completely honest, I only post when I’ve cleared other priorities in my life and lately, there’s been a lot on my plate. They’re nothing I can’t handle, but blogging and social media are things I do when I don’t have anything else looming over me. I can’t enjoy them otherwise. That’s all there is to it.
I do have a huge backlog of entries that I’ve been meaning to publish for months. Game reviews, tutorials, and the like. I’ll do my best to publish a few before Fallout 4 is released, because I guarantee you all that I will vanish by then.
Why Can’t I Hold All These Games?
I have a huge backlog of games too! I haven’t started any of the other routes in Amnesia: Memories after Kent. I finished my second Dragon Age: Inquisition playthrough a few weeks ago, and I keep meaning to churn out a review for Trespasser before Fallout 4 drops. And there’s still Pillars of Eternity‘s new expansion! Video games are happening faster than I can live!
Crocheting All the Things
I picked up crochet again after being out of practice for many, many years. I’ve found nothing more relaxing than picking out a playlist on my iPod Touch and just stitching away. I’ve already finished a phone sleeve for Mike. Seeing his face when I handed it to him made me so happy. I'm now working on a winter scarf for him. I'm hoping to finish it by this week so I can start making things for myself. I've been snapping all my progress on Snapchat. If we’re not following each other yet, we totally should!! It’s my favorite app at the moment. Super easy to post stuff, and I love seeing other people’s stories too. Let’s be friends: raiscake. 📱
So this is another reason I haven’t been around much. I prefer to crochet in bed with music. Sometimes I catch up on Youtube tech channels while I’m at it, but for the most part, it’s a solitary activity. It makes me finish much faster too, although I can’t do it for too long without cramping my hand.
Cards Against Humanity was a Blast
Aaahh I know I still need to post highlights! But maybe I shouldn’t because it was too trashy and too 🔥LIT🔥. I was drunk and confused, and there was too much sin going around. Thank you so much to those who came! Nancy, Kristine, Eirene, and Mara, you are all 💯👍! I’m definitely planning on hosting more games in the future. You guys can pick the next game!
I Have Three Trips Coming Up
I’m usually careful about mentioning work on my blog and social media (even the good things), but I’m going out of town for two work conferences. I’m so excited!
My first trip is on Monday. I’m heading to New York. I have the first day to myself, so I’m planning on doing some exploring and meeting up with Liv. My next trip is a short getaway to Boston to see my best friend later in November, and then it’s off to another work conference in Philly in December! I CAN’T WAIT.
Hope everyone’s doing well! I have the next few days off, so I’ll be catching up on everyone. Tell me how you’ve been!
