Pillars of Eternity

Life Lately: Surgery and Spring

Last week was taxing, but I’m happy to say I’ve been mostly productive. Somehow, I feel much more motivated when I have a lot of things to do. Clearly the most logical time to pile on totally unnecessary, completely non-mandatory activities is when I already have a lot on my plate.

The Extended Cut DLC did address some issues and it left me feeling more hopeful about the ending, but I was still quite bitter from the first time I finished it. Read more…

Trainer Silver Wants to Battle!


I recently took a short break from blogging and social media. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by work, side projects with ridiculous self-imposed deadlines, and my renewed art hobby. Being constantly “on” doesn’t help my mental overload, so I unplugged for a few days to focus on cleaning out our place and Pokemon Silver. This game was so magical. It still is after all these years.

I started with Pokemon Red when my mom gave me a Gameboy Color for my 11th birthday. Read more…
