We’re a little behind schedule for this Weekly Adventures segments. I do want to make this an actual weekly segment but I feel like there’s just not enough material. I am working on how to work it out even if its just little goal updates. Anyways, enough about that. These last two weeks have been nothing short of crazy and yet, it doesn’t feel like there’s a whole lot to talk about. Valentine’s Marathon was a very tiny run of just five days with some pretty random choices. The only movie I wanted to watch but didn’t get to was Joe vs. The Volcano and I owe a double feature recommended in the last post when I announced the Valentine’s marathon. Things I need to get around to doing. Ultimate 90s Blogathon has also ended in receiving submissions and that will be starting on Monday (February 20th).
I’ll explain why things are falling a little behind, even the posts are being uploaded later than usual at random times.
Random Bug and Health Issues
I’m not going to go into too much detail and I’m just happy it didn’t knock me out for a long time. In short, there was one Saturday that a bug generally just hit me super hard, packed with chills and everything. I ended up spending most of that weekend lounging around the fireplace and sleeping. It was probably my body’s way to tell me to relax and sleep. I get hit by insomnia every once in a while and this is probably my body just forcing me to rest. Aside from that, there was something else with my ear which I’m scared might turn into an infection. Regardless, its still getting better. It does make talking or listening to anything super hard and its also been a cause of the sleep issues afterwards. Luckily, it is on the road to recovery, at least I hope so.
Enough of the bad stuff..let’s move on!
A New Class
Ridiculous as it all sounds when I’m talking about winding down and yet still being incredibly busy and not being able to do that, I accidentally signed up for an online course. Let me explain that I did buy this course as a Groupon deal a few months ago and was thinking about it and then I was just checking out to redeem it and I did it. So now, I’m doing a 4 week course with 8 live seminars stuck in the middle of the workday which I try to listen to and catch up in more detail on the weekend and finish up assignments. Either way, I’m hoping it’ll enlighten a few things on that I’ve been hoping to improve which can help Game Warp and Tranquil Dreams. It also brings up a whole lot of stuff that I’ve been planning to do but never actually finalizing.
I’ve actually been in the learning mode this year and wanting to improve Photography, Video Editing and Spanish. Of course, its not going to happen all this year but hey, its nice to feel motivated to improve and upgrade my skill set.
Other events going on is snow. Lots of snow this past few days. Well, by today’s standards. I think Sunday to Monday had about 25cm and then Tuesday, we had a bit more and Wednesday was when I took this picture in the morning. It stopped pretty quickly but still, quite a bit of snow compared to usual. I think I read somewhere it broke some record. It is nice to see nice fluffy snow and not the wet slush that turns into freezing rain and then raining. Its a tad odd to see people and their umbrellas in winter. Maybe its just me.
Perhaps random but lets just say timing got the hold of me and it was time to upgrade to have a controller for the PC especially when there’s a game that I need to review but is more controller compatible. Other than that, I ended up grabbing two movies to help fill up orders to get free shipping (stupid logic perhaps) and they were Charade and The Raid 2. I rented Backcountry lately. We started Cardinal, a Canadian mini series that is awesome, which is good because I actually bought the whole series on Play store. The price of not having cable or even bunny ears and relying solely on Netflix and not wanting to miss out (which is a rare occasion to be honest).
In terms of games (which I’m putting a stop on myself after yesterday’s purchase), I’ve been shopping on Steam a bit and grabbed some nice deals. Murdered: Soul Suspect, Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition and right before February, I picked up The Bug Butcher and Four Sided Fantasy. Nothing super new but games that have peaked my interest. If you are into gaming and Twitch streams, Game Warp streams are set now to run on weekends. Early Sunday mornings (5am GMT) with Blood Bowl 2 with my awesome co-host Elwood and I usually run mine on Friday nights or Saturday mornings/afternoons with whatever games I feel like playing or its the games we’re featuring that month.
Probably I’ll do this once in a while and share the random stuff I buy outside of like hauls on Black Friday or trips or whatnot.
Cute Kitty Pic
This Weekly Adventures has been a little lackluster with truly everyday events that I couldn’t help but to give you two cute kitty pics. Winter, snowstorms and cold weather makes my darling cat sleep even more so these are her two spots of choice: in front of the fireplace where it fully warms up her belly and curled up in blankets behind me on my husband’s office chair. My support system everybody, she’s into moral support. Sleeping away the hours for me.
Ultimate 90’s Blogathon is running from February 20th into about early-mid March.
Expect to see TV Binge, Book reviews and Recipes during this time. Any of my own movie reviews (unless new releases) will resume after the blogathon.
Simple everyday life for the last two weeks & lots of behind the scenes things that I can’t really share because its just boring.
What have you been up to?
