Update: Life and Books (Apr 2024)

Well, I'm back to having no real news to share this month. But that's not a bad thing. It's better than having bad news. I just spent another month using my free time to play Baldur's Gate 3. I really can't express how great this game is and how much I love it. I have now played five times (with a different romance and class each time), but I still don't want to stop. Anyway, here are some posts...

Update: Life and Books (Mar 2024) – Peacocks, Punching Books, and My Reading Mojo is Back!

Guess what, everyone! I have something cool to share this time that isn't about games! It's peacocks! Well peacock. I heard a weird noise outside, so I opened my curtains and found this! Wild peafowl have lived around here for a long time. I saw some in front of the house once, like five years ago. But having one just outside my window with tail feathers all spread and everything was genuinely...

Update: Life and Books (Feb 2024)

I know my monthly updates have mostly been about games lately, but, uh... this one is also going to be about games 😅 (Also some books though!) Honestly, everything has just felt like a lot lately. So I have retreated into games. Is that the healthiest thing to do? Well, I'm chronically ill and disabled, so I don't have a lot of options, and it's certainly healthier...
 
Random Musings: Movies I Love

Random Musings: Movies I Love

I just wanted to do a chill post, and movies aren't that far out of the realm of books and games, right? It's all stories! And some of these even started as books! So it's still a good topic for my blog, I think. Plus I get to just chat about things I love. Things you might love too. And if you feel like it, you can tell me about your favorite movies, and then we'll all have some new...

Update: Life and Books (Jan 2024)

Ok someone please tell me how to intro these posts, because I don't know anymore. I've had this blog for over eight years, I've used every update intro that exists. There are no more left. I have spent my free time this month playing Baldur's Gate 3! Again! I finished another playthrough. It's just such a cool game. I love all the characters. I've been posting about it a bunch on Tumblr. (If...
 
Update: Life and Books (Dec 2023) + One Last Art

Update: Life and Books (Dec 2023) + One Last Art

I feel like I'm supposed to start this post by saying, "Happy New Year!" but that would feel disingenuous. This year isn't going to be any happier for me than the last one was. But this post isn't about the new year, so ha. Take that, 2024! It's about what I did in December. And one of the things I did was make art! And I'm so happy with how it came out. Seriously, this is what I was...

Update: Life and Books (Nov 2023)

November. Another month gone by in which I've mostly just played games (well, mostly one game) when I felt up to doing things with my brain (and my body, sometimes even moving my hand takes too much energy). I got back into Sun Haven after taking a few month's break! They've had two big updates since I last played, and I've been having a lot of fun again. They made my favorite NPC romanceable!...

Update: Life and Books (Oct 2023) + Gay Frankenstein Art!

I forgot to keep track of anything this month, and now I don't know what I did. I guess I played more Moonstone Island? I've already posted my review, it's a really cute farming sim / creature collector game! Oh, I got a little ghost cat in Cats & Soup! It shifts between opaque and translucent, it really is cute. I'm also still watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. I'm on Season 3 now. It's...
 
Update: Life and Books (Sep 2023) + I Drew More Things!

Update: Life and Books (Sep 2023) + I Drew More Things!

So a bit of real life... My energy levels have been worsening for a while, and I felt like I was spending more and more time in a haze, struggling to focus, trying and failing to keep my eyes open. I thought my illness was just worsening. Turns out I've been living with CO2 poisoning from a poorly ventilated room. Which is good, to have figured it out! But also bad because there's no good...

Update: Life and Books (Aug 2023) + I Drew a Thing

I always feel like I should announce it in the title when I make art because it happens so rarely, but I'm not that enthused about this one, so it felt weird to draw attention to... Anyway, I played some more games. I mentioned giving up on Brookhaven Grimoire last time, but I went back to it and ended up finishing the game. There was a frustrating lack of guidance for the player, but I loved...
