Check-In: November 21

Once again, I’ve let almost a whole month go by without an entry. I’m great at blogging. Once again, it’s real life that gets in the way. November is probably the busiest month at work. So all of my downtime has been spent recharging. Anyway, here’s a quick update:

What I’m working on: Keeping it together, man. Just keeping it together.

What I’m listening to: I’ve been catching up on a lot of podcasts lately: No Such Thing as a Fish, Schmanners, Adventure Zone and How Did This Get Made.

What I’m reading: I FINALLY finished “Where’d You Go, Bernadette.” I enjoyed it. It only took me a couple months. If there were more than three people in my book club, I woulda been kicked out long ago.

What I’ve been playing: Okay. Here’s where we find how I’ve really been spending my time. Stardew Valley has seriously become my main method of de-stressing. It’s a nice, zen, low stakes building game so it hits all the right marks for me. And there’s Civ 6, which I’ve been achievement farming because it provides a temporary sense of accomplishment.

And most importantly, Pokemon Sun and Moon came out. I got Sun and the husband person got Moon. I think I’ve mentioned before how we’re extremely late getting on this Pokemon train. We were both in our early teens and were way too cool for it when it first came out, so we didn’t get in on the ground floor. But now that I’m a mellow, old thirty-something, I find it a pleasant game to play. There’s the collecting aspect and the strategy aspect. It’s fun to put your teams together and all that.

Plus, it really helps that most of them are super cute. I don’t think so much about stats and strategy when picking my favorites. I got for the cute ones.


I mean, you’ll never see me messin’ with no Machamp. Skitty 4 Life.

Anyway. Happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully things will get closer to normal next week.
