October 11th

It is a cool and rather wet day outside of my apartment. One of those days that really tells you to just stay inside and enjoy life. My wife who had to go to work this morning came back inside and confirmed my suspicions, “I am going to avoid going outside”, when she placed her -20 hands on my back.

The way that my day is looking is that I am going to work on my World of Darkness campaign for the show Stranger Things. Right now I am working on how to make it different enough from the show that people who watched the show cannot just insta-win because they know everything.

I am also going to work on some team compositions for my friends who play League of Legends because as a team we would like to do some climbing in ranked. I for one am excited but first we will see if my efforts are worth the time.

More than likely I will finish my day by playing Dead by Daylight and trying to earn some more blood points to upgrade The Trapper because he is only level 10 right now. I need him to be much higher level for the Halloween event that I am hosting.

Kiq a Desire

So a new product came to kickstarter recently and for months the company has been building hype on Facebook. My wife is not a fan of what I think is an adorable toy for a 23 year old adult male, but what does she know?

I am so excited for this that I really would like to pledge the $750 and get all four of these amazing looking things. However I am also pretty sure my wife would kill me if I did that since we are planning on having our wedding reception in February.

In any case if you are looking for a personal assistant that also have a personality I highly recommend checking this out.

Negative Friend

I think many people have a friend like the one I am about to describe. A friend whose negativity is what they are known for. A person who is living a fairly good life but somehow manages to be the absolute catalyst for feelings of negativity.

I have several friends who fall into this category, whether that is just who I seem to attract as friends or simply because I live on a college campus.

There is some variations between them and in how they are negative.

For example I am going to start with J. J is a high functioning individual who has been dating the same girl for five years. He lives comfortably in a house with his girlfriend and best friend. They all work and pay rent no problem. For the most part J plays video games about 30+ hours a week on top of working about 30 hours a week. Logging hundreds of hours into games of course he is very good at them.

Now J thinks that it is fun to introduce his friends to the same games he plays and then proceeds to tell everyone that plays with him how they are “garbage” and “trash” because they don’t know the current meta for every item in the game or the best things to do. The icing on the cake is if you introduce him to a game and therefore you have the upperhand due to practice, the game itself must be crap.

Another type of negative friend are those who have no belief in themselves at all. I have two friends who I see every single day and play games with regularly. S and C both function on this idea that they are worth less than the ground they walk on. C believes that he is incapable of anything and that he really is just a waste of oxygen. S has a little more self confidence then that but she has also started drinking heavily and falling into a different pit of despair.

It is hard being around such negativity all the time and sometimes a person just needs a break. For me I play games with my wife and with the last two people I mentioned plus other friends, for reasons the first person mentioned does not reduce stress when playing games with them.

New Desk

Last night I was very bored and just sitting at home waiting for my wife to come home from work. Her average day is her waking up at 6 AM to go to work from 6:30-8:30 AM, then she sleeps again so she can go to work from 3-11 PM. Her work schedule really prevents her from getting to do a lot of fun things with myself of friends.

So last night I decided to stay up way to late and wait for her because we haven’t really seen each other for a couple days. I mean we share a bed but our schedules make it so that there is nothing more than we sleep in the same place.

We decide to make a Walmart run because well why not. We get there and start looking around and one of the things that catch my eyes is a desk that I have had on my amazon wishlist for about a month is on sale in Walmart.

Well I then had to put the thing together at midnight cause why wouldn’t you play with your new toy. At around 1 AM I had my new desk put together and my computer in place on the desk. Now today I will get to take the whole system for a spin.

Moral of the story, “Go to Walmart at 11:30 PM and goodish things will happen”.

October

It is amazing how fast time flies. I kept telling myself I would get on here and post again sooner rather than later. Four months later here I am finally posting again.

Some pretty cool life events have happened, keeping me busy. My girlfriend is no longer my girlfriend instead she is my wife. We are both very happy and excited. She works a lot though, two jobs and all. Here I am working one job and still getting educated. Officially started my graduate degree this year. We will see how quickly I can complete it.

Playing a lot of League of Legends still, but a lot more of Dead by Daylight. A fantastic newer game. Currently it is getting some hate for being full of bugs. However the concept is good and the gameplay is fun.

Well it is 2 am here so I am going to post this and then head to bed. Post more in the future.
