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...

Gamer Musings: A Compilation of Tumblr Posts about My Baldur’s Gate 3 Shenanigans

Since I know a lot of my blog visitors don't use or follow me in other places, I like to occasionally make compilation posts like this. I've done it for The Sims and Project Zomboid, so now Baldur's Gate 3 gets a turn! I've been using Tumblr a lot lately, so that's where these are from. Sorry if I went overboard 😅 I talk about this game a lot, so I tried to pick the ones that I thought...

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...

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...
 
Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read & Games I Played in 2023

Bookish Musings: Top Ten Characters from Books I Read & Games I Played in 2023

It's actually become increasingly harder for me over the years to choose favorite characters from books because I don't really have favorites the way I used to. Which is not an insult to authors, they are still writing great characters! But it's more that I love the way they fit into their stories and the dynamics they have with other characters. I guess, I'm finding it harder now to separate...

Gamer Musings: Top Ten Games I Played in 2023

I have spent a lot of time this year playing games. They've been a great distraction from the struggles of real life, and they're also just fun and pretty and interesting! So these are my favorite games that I either started or finished or both this year (no repeats from previous years). There's actually a surprising mix here of bigger games, smaller games, free games, and even one mobile...

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!...
