June 8, 2016


I was so thankful to spend some time journaling yesterday. It's been super busy and I still feel out of it as I try to find my way back into my computer and my work. It was good to just settle into myself and the page. The lighting helped :)


I did it! I finished Tomb Raider! Or at least, I finished the story start-to-finish. Apparently I only actually did about 60% of the game, which feels like I missed a lot of it along the way. I had a lot of fun, and the experience of streaming was interesting too - not sure how often I would do that for a whole game (if ever), but I was happy that I gave it a shot. One great thing about streaming is that it gives you a timer at the top left that lets you know how long you've been broadcasting. That helped me a lot to not go overboard. I'm sure I FELL overboard a lot though! Some things never change.


Only photo I took today. I gave my meds a week and turns out they were not only making me feel like crap, the only reason I was sleeping was because of the Gravol I was taking to counteract the nausea. I was awake all night. Could barely function but got some chores done and was very grateful to have radicchio back in my kitchen. It's the little things.

WTG, Shannon! Kudos for making it to the end and also experimenting with the streaming. I wonder what you'll decide to do next. Oh, and that's great about the timer. They should make that an option for games :)

Oh, Suzie, I'm so sorry the meds made you feel so crappy. what happens now? Yay for radicchio cheering you up. :)

Yes, beautiful lighting Jamie! Glad you're getting to do journalling too, some quiet time amongst the busy-ness.

Shannon, that's HUGE! And wow, sounds like you could go back and do a lot of exploring. Glad the timer worked out as a way of taking care that you don't play too much. They always get me stressed, LOL.

Looks like Gravol is a better sleep aid than anything else I have tried. Not sure what's next. Talking to sleep doc tonight. Now I have withdrawal to look forward to for a while.

Yay for journalling! It is nice to get back to the page eh? I always find it ends up being benifitial. Every single time it's worth it. I'm glad you got some page time, I look forward to Journal Club tomorrow!

Sometimes it really is the little things, eh? Who knew that that could mean raddichio? I hope you enjoyed it :) Sorry to hear about the sleep though :(

Yep, I have officially finished, or got to the end of, my first PS4 game! I wonder if I'll end up talking like a gamer at some point, hehe.
