On Fabled Events

So I’ve had a bit of a rough time coming up with topics, and generally having the time to write. All I’ve been doing lately is playing Hearthstone and World of Warcraft, but that doesn’t really give me anything new to talk about. I’m not one for relaying stories of what I’m doing, mainly cause I’m not doing anything worth talking about, and because that isn’t what this blog is really about. Thankfully my friend Bel has been posting writing suggestions so I’m going to steal borrow one of those for today’s post. For me GenCon is this fabled event, what is yours? What is the event that you would love to attend but have never had the opportunity to do so for whatever reason. For me this would have to be Comic Con. Not just any Comic Con, but the San Diego Comic Con. The big one. The one … Read more…

On Hearthstone

So if you follow me on twitter you’ll have noticed the last few days I’ve mentioned hearthstone quite a few times. This is because I’ve been playing it quite a bit more the last week or two. Blizzard recently launched the “Curse of Naxxramas” expansion that gives players 3 NPC boss battles per week for around 5 weeks. Each week 3 bosses unlock, and defeating each of them gives you a new pair of minion cards. Defeating all 3 unlocks a boss minion, challenge modes and the heroic versions of the bosses. Out of all the card games I’ve played, which granted is not extensive in size, I feel like I like Hearthstone the best. At least at the moment. Eventually HEX will release their game with the CO-OP dungeons and avatars that you can get gear for. But until then I like Hearthstone better. It’s free to play, which … Read more…

On..So I won an award

So this is a thing that happened. To be honest I wasn’t really expecting this at all, and in part this was something that happened because I’ve been greatly encouraged by the number of people that have been coming by to read this blog. If people hadn’t come by to read or leave comments I would have found it a lot harder to continue posting. So for everyone that has been coming by, I owe you a lot of thanks because it helped me come back everyday and write something even if I didn’t always know what to talk about. I especially want to thank my friend Bel who introduced me to the initiative and set a good example on daily writing for me to follow.

On Min-Maxing

So this title might be a bit misleading. I have no skill at what most gamers probably think of when referring to min-maxing, namely stat prioritization and the like. In this instance I am talking about the category for which I have been nominated for a newbie blogger award. To be honest, I am a bit shocked about this. I’m excited that it happened, but completely shocked. There are a lot of really good bloggers nominated for various awards and I’m happy to be included in this. I don’t know if I always write things that are worth reading, but I’ve enjoyed reading peoples comments and the supportive comments from the community. If you have the time go and check out the other nominees on the list and read their blogs as well. You don’t have to sign up to view the list, though I think you do have to … Read more…

On Vacations and Getting Outside

So today’s post is a bit of a stretch. Today is one of those days where I’m having a hard time with a topic to talk about. I figured that I needed to do something today though since I didn’t do anything over the weekend. So if you’ve read my previous blogs you would know that over the last few days I was out of town on vacation. I’ve lived a state away from one of my online friends for several years and finally got around to driving up for a visit so I thought I’d talk a little bit about that. Most of the day Friday was spent out and about checking out stores and seeing what there was to do. Checked out a used bookstore and a store called “Vintage Stock” that has a lot of stuff such as used video games, comics, movies and toys. Some original … Read more…

On Being Lazy, stepping outside comfort zones, and making videos.

EDIT: I ended up deleting that channel so the videos aren’t available anymore so I took them out.   Ok so I haven’t posted to the blog in awhile, and there is a pretty good reason for that. Over the last few months I was taking my last required college course to get my computer science degree. The class in general was a giant pain in my backside, and required me giving up most of my free time and what little social life I had in order to actually pass the class. Mercifully I managed to pull a B in the class and graduated. So at this point all I’m waiting on is my diploma to be printed and then I can parade it around work and tell people to kiss my butt for the five years of grief I got for not having a degree. Well, not really going … Read more…
