Too Many Games, Too Little Time/Energy

aghDianah

My usual game consumption per week involves logging in for my SWTOR operations three or four times a week for about 2.5 hours per session. Filthy casual, right? Sometimes I feel like it’s too little and too much gaming at the same time. I spend a lot of time at work, at the gym, doing housework, taking care of my dogs, and running various other errands. I am so impressed how people can balance their lives around gaming. I’m so tired all the time, and sometimes playing games is more taxing than I’d like when I want to relax. (I’ll expand more about being exhausted all the time when I tell you about my aerial classes in a future blog post!)

I’m Back! Plus a Preview of Future Posts!

marr

At the moment of writing, I’m afraid to see when my last post was. I’m alive! I’m extremely happy. I am still playing SWTOR. I’m sorry for the silence. I should really post here whenever a new episode of Corellian Run Radio is released! I’ll try to get better at that.

A lot has happened since my last post, both in-game and in my personal life, and I haven’t felt like writing or sharing any of it, so here’s a quick preview on what to look forward from me in upcoming blog posts! In chronological order on when the topics (spoiler alert? LOL) in these future posts happened or will happen:

Leveling Up IRL: Joining an Aerial Fitness Gym

When I Cried About My Guild

Becoming a Guild Officer & <Despair> Recruitment

Long Distance Relationship Comes to an End

Social Anxiety & My “First” Strip Club Experience

Going to Disneyworld & Universal Studios!

I’m excited to share with you readers, and I look forward to blogging regularly again!

Book Review: Ready Player One

readyplayerone

This past week I read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I haven’t read any books in a while, though I used to read for pleasure a lot more when I was in high school and college! Lately when I’ve tried to read, it’s been difficult to concentrate and to get into a novel, but this book made it easy to become engrossed in the story and continue reading until the story was complete.

Supercook Challenge Week One

All the ingredients needed for the Chicken Jambalaya recipe!

All the ingredients needed for the Chicken Jambalaya recipe!

This week Supercook, my favorite cooking website, is having their first challenge in which participants must use three featured ingredients (rice, chicken, and tomato) in a recipe they found on their website. Kind of like Iron Chef!

If you’re unfamiliar with Supercook, you basically can input all the ingredients you have in your kitchen, and the website searches the internet for recipes you can make with what you already have, which helps reduce food waste and saves time and money from going back to the grocery store for extra ingredients! I’ve also written a whole blog post about the website before, which you can read here.

Woke up at 4am to be in this pic of us winning a conquest.

I’ve been in the same guild in Star Wars: The Old Republic for over 2 years now, and I’m very happy to be with them! I’ve mentioned my guild, Despair on the Harbinger, a few times on the blog before, but today I was inspired by a tweet by @ArtMusicTech, who said:

I have a few tips on what I consciously do in my guild to encourage fun and success in the guild!
