The big 5-0 for My Weekly Adventures. With my sporadic pieces, this really doesn’t mean anything much.
However, with the change of some key elements and the situation plaguing me lately, it become apparent that this little serious and important hobby (that I want to believe is much more) will have to have definite changes. I’m sure you’ve all already noticed obvious but gradual changes going on here. You can head to the serious talk at the end and I’ll explain everything there.
Rainy Boucherville 15K
Boucherville 15K for my friend ended up landing on Labor Day weekend, which coincidentally was the day that the tail end of Hurricane Harvey hit Canada which really was just heavy rains. It was definitely a milestone for my friend mostly because he’s always been fortunate to not have to deal with rain at any of his races. Maybe misty drizzle but never full on downpour. I am very grateful that we didn’t get the whole deal because looking at the devastation in Texas and the disaster Hurricane Harvey did just breaks my heart and my best wishes extend to everyone that has been affected by it. And also to those people affected by Irma as well.
Dreamhack Montreal 2017
Game Warp was incredibly lucky to get our press pass for Dreamhack Montreal 2017. Our focus was definitely on the indie game zone. However, its a great opportunity to step out of our comfort zone and check out the competitions and e-sports things. A definite eye opener experience. If you missed the quick coverage post which was really just a video I compiled. You can find it below. Its short and sweet, hopefully.
Brunch with Friends
Things really don’t get better than hanging out with my girlfriends. We had brunch which was great because of the company. The food at this place honestly isn’t anything special especially when their selection of tea is still just Red Rose. We ended up spending a good part of the afternoon together just window shopping as one of us has also recently become a homeowner so furniture and fixture shopping are in progress.
Serious Talk & Decisions
Its been a few weeks that I’ve been talking about personal stuff bothering me. Just talking about my current situation. I don’t believe in anyone having to help me solve my problems since they are my own. With that said, the big issue looming over our heads have been of the home renovation variety, notably our roof. For other homeowners (or anyone whose been in a house), its something we know very well that these things that cover up our houses and shelter us from all kinds of stuff is really expensive to replace. While I’ve figured out my financials for now, its obvious that there’s a whole lot of cutting of expenses. I’ve been gradually anticipating this renovation and been changing my spending habits. For the most part, its been successful however this renovation came earlier than we expected so now, it has become even stricter about everything. Although, I have already been doing a lot of things to save up like working mostly with Netflix and digging through my TBR books and existing unplayed games for Game Warp. Its one of the reasons why I’m also incredibly grateful that I’ve gotten the press pass for Montreal Comiccon and Fantasia Festival and lately Dreamhack. Tranquil Dreams isn’t going anywhere. We just adapt and change to the current situation.
Game Warp will also be a huge focus in my life. We are also very lucky to meet certain people in our Game Warp gaming life. If you are into gaming, go and give our friend Slay aka Insomnia Knights a follow on Twitter and/or subscribe to his Youtube channel. Slay has been a fantastic friend to us and helped us out a ton even if he doesn’t know it. Meeting a lot of great individuals is one of those incredibly rewarding things about being in this online space and it motivates me to keep going.
With that said, while the roof situation seems to be getting some kind of resolution, another huge decision has come to light. This week has been a constant wrestle with making what is the right thing to do. I talked about it last weekend. While the factors have changed a little, the fact of it coming up has really made me consider what is the best way for this. With that said, I’m still pondering it however its something I’ll have to decide and conclude one way or another on my own. Because being in constant emotional dilemma is just not something I’m okay with (probably no one is).
However, this week’s posts has been light and easy so I’ve managed to keep up but I apologize again and in advance if ever things do fall behind again. I’m trying my absolute best 🙂

This wraps up this Weekly Adventures!
I’m honestly hoping next one will be less “adventure” and more tranquility.
Sleep deprivation and stress is really not doing me any good…
