What I've Been Up To 7

What I’ve Been Up To

Spread the Word!

The last time I wrote one of these was shortly after I got into my new home. It’s been a few months and I thought it would be a good idea to update everyone on my living situation and talk about what I’ve been doing and what I plan on doing in the future. 

I’ve had a rough year. I don’t know of another way to put it. I wish I could say things are better. It’s better because I actually have a home, got my laptop back, and don’t have to worry about where I’ll be sleeping the next day. It’s worse because my wife had a really bad reaction to her new medication and she’s like a zombie. Her doctor gave her too much medication at one time and in the last two and half weeks I’ve been dealing with being mom and dad to my kids and making sure my wife eats, bathe, take vitamins, and doesn’t sleep for 12 hours a day. It’s hard, but I love my wife and I want her to get better. When she’s lucid it’s great. She’ll talk to me, play with the kids, and she even played some Salt and Sanctuary with me. After the second shot she… doesn’t do any of that. We’ve decided to switch her medications back to the pill form, but we have to wait for these meds to work their way through her system before we can do anything else. One thing we do know for sure is she’s not taking anymore shots from that facility. I’ve been actively looking for a new place for her to go, but there’s not much to choose from here. The only other place we found wants her to wait six months before she can be seen. We can’t have her off her medication for that long. 

I’ve been super stressed out about everything, but at least we have our own home to be stressed out in. On the gaming side of things I haven’t been super active, but I have played some games. Octopath Traveler, Ni No Kuni 2, Death’s Gambit, Salt and Sanctuary, and Dead Cells have been in rotation. I completed Death’s Gambit and Madden (can you complete Madden?) and moved on. Both games were disappointing. I love Madden because it’s football and hate it because EA (once again) did the minimum and barely improved the game. Death’s Gambit was really high up on my top 20 most anticipated games of the year and it was extremely disappointing. It’s not as good as Dead Cells or Salt and Sanctuary. Octopath Traveler is great. I haven’t played it in almost two weeks, but I love it. I’ve been really sick lately. I had a high fever and now it’s just a bad cough that I can’t seem to get rid of. So… instead of gaming I’ve been binge watching shit on Netflix. Ni No Kuni 2 is great by the way. I plan on writing a review for that, Dead Cells, and Octopath Traveler. 

Netflix and WWE have been my life lately. I’ve been so sick that I didn’t feel like doing any gaming whatsoever. I love Westerns so I binged watched the entire Longmire Series and really liked it. I love the characters, setting (I really like that it’s in modern day society), and I thought it told a really good story. It got better after Netflix took the reigns in my opinion. I watched all 6 seasons in less then a week. I can count the amount of shows I’ve done that to on one hand. I also watched Doctor Strange (again), Luke Cage season 2, Shooter season 1, 5 episodes of The Last Kingdom, 2 episodes of Marcella, and I plan on watching season 2 of Jessica Jones and Thor: Ragnorok. I’m… not excited about that last one. I enjoyed the majority of what I watched. I’m not really into The Last Kingdom or Marcella, but I loved the second season of Luke Cage. Shooter was good. I went in with low expectations. It’s not the best show, but it does have some nice action in it. I watched NXT Takeover: Brooklyn and it was fantastic. There wasn’t a single bad match on the card. My favorite was Kairi Sane vs Shayna Baszler followed by the main event. Summerslam was… okay I guess, but it was no near as good as Takeover. I didn’t like the main event of Summerslam at all. They used Braun to get cheers for Roman because we all thought he was going to cash in the briefcase. So Roman is the champ and I could care less for Raw right now. At least the Universal Championship is on Raw though. So there’s that…

My birthday recently passed on the 17th. I was sick as shit, but I still managed to have a good day. I went and brought this

Here are a few more pics 🙂

I was expecting my new Skyrim figurine to clip through my desk or fall through the ground, but it doesn’t. No bugs here :). After that I went to Cowboys, drunk some vodka, a pepsi, and hate a delicious whiskey burger. Oh, and I preordered that fancy Spider-man Playstation 4. It looks fantastic and I think it’s about time I join the Playstation family again. I prefer that over the Xbox One because it actually has games I want to play. 

And that’s about it. What have you been up to?

    I love the idea of a Skyrim figurine being full of bugs!

    I’m glad things are on the up for you, even if there’s a long way to go!

      Thank you.

      You can’t go wrong with Spider-man :). I have Jack Cooper (Titanfall 2) on the opposite side of my desk from where my Skyrim figurine is. The next one I’m getting is from Dark Souls 2 :).

    Medication can be such a crap shoot. I hope you get that figured out soon. I’m at a grinding point in Octopath, but I’ve been kind of mentally out of it so I haven’t played as much. Netflix and Hulu are great for these times. I’m glad at least your home situation is now stable.
