So, the last part of this year was a new experience for me. Well, really since the start of last summer. I started growing things on my balcony and from there, I started to buy houseplants. It might not seem like much, but for me it is a big step. They are living and growing after all. I’ve lived in this apartment for almost 11 years now and not a single plant has made it through the night, no kidding. Well the plastic ones do for obvious reasons. But this year I’ve come to realize a few things about me, and what I am capable of, that made me change my mind. And now, I couldn’t be happier that none of the plants I’ve bought have died yet!
I know, I know, this is neither game related or about Halloween, but just wait for it! In no time, I’ll DIY game inspired pots for them all to grow in!
Realizing a thing or two about yourself seems to be the theme for this year and there are a few reasons for that. Life being one. Growing up and living life isn’t as fun as one thinks in the beginning. Sure, it’s awesome to decorate your new place and so on, but the innocent mentality you take with you will pull you under if you don’t change with it. Cliché I know. I didn’t change when I moved out, let alone during the years of living here. During the last two years at least, I’ve realized that it was as huge mistake, and I’ve been working on myself ever since. One baby step at the time.
So, not to make this a completely random post, filled with stuff people might not care about, I’ve also realized that Soulcalibur 2 is a damn fun game. Late to the party, woo!

I hope you had a wonderful year, and that the next will be as good or better!
So, another year of self reflection and a few more positive realizations. This Christmas has been the best in a long time. A low key, lots of gifts kind of Christmas. Just enjoying life with the one you love is really all you need. And I’m truly happy to have the best person there is. Especially as he gives me games like P5 (PS3), Folk Lore (PS3), Mario Party 4 (Gamecube), and Soulcalibur 2 (Gamecube). I’m dying to play them. ❤
We got our self a really tiny, chubby tree this year. The pile of gifts were almost bigger than the tree (if we hadn’t put it on a chair). This, and tasty food while watching holiday movies is the best. This year we’re watching Christmas Cruelty which we finally got a hold of after years of search.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
So, have anyone ever heard of Wattpad? I only recently found out about it and must say that it is a rather nice app. As I’ve tried my hand at writing, both fictional and for my blog, I thought it would be a fun idea to post a story I finished some time ago. It’s called Heart of the Storm, and it’s a fantasy romance of sorts, with jealousy, possession and love.
If I’d summarize it, it would be:
“Sometimes curiosity can get the better of you, and it’s not always for the best. Ilpharin, a young shanshjin woman, has been tasked to deliver a package, but the destination is part of a forbidden territory. Along the way she meets the mysterious barshyam man with a beautiful medallion, who saves her from a unfortunate situation and a human, who seems to be helping her for more selfish reasons than he lets on. Things take a turn for Ilpharin when she touches something she shouldn’t have and her whole life spirals out of control.”
It’s only the first chapter so far but soon the rest will be added as well.
Here’s the link. Feel free to read, comment and share!
So, I recently posted my 200th post and am still amazed that I’m doing this and that so many have read my blog.
It’s still a place for me to vent, even if I haven’t been that active lately. When I was younger, I thought that people who didn’t have time for games any more were weird. But as life has taken quite a few turns and work has been more prominent, I see myself less and less in front of my computer. It’s not that I’m not gaming anymore, it’s just that things take priority. I assume that most people can relate to that.
I’ll try to post more, and be more spontaneous again. I promise.
And last but not least, a HUGE thanks to everybody who reads my blog.
So, this year our Halloween celebration went from a Halloweekend to a Halloweek. From Saturday the 28th Oct all the way to Sunday the 5th Nov. Filled with tasty food, horror movies and horror game. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Just as last year, we went to the zombie run again to start off our Halloweek, it wasn’t as cool as last year but it was still really fun. I brought my vampire teeth along again.
Last year I said that I was playing through Resident Evil for PS1 and that it was taking longer than I expected. Actually, it took me until this Halloween to finish it up. Life happened. So, anyhow, this Halloween I finished it up and damn what a ride. I really like the game but I’ll put that in another post entirely. Too much to say!
This year we thought we’d watch some “classics”. The movies we saw were Alien and Halloween. They really weren’t any good and really fell behind among the other movies we watched like 31, Boo and All Hallows’ Eve.
Also this year there weren’t any meat head nor pizza mummies. Instead there were purple/black potato gratin made on blue potatoes, skull shaped sausages and spook shaped chicken nuggets among some other tasty treats.
I didn’t dress up this year per se, though I dressed up as a witch for work.
This year was a big success and hopefully it’ll be even greater next year! If anyone got some other tips on what to cook for next Halloween, share!
So, yet another year gone past, and I suppose a lot has happened. Should I be cliché and say how horrible this year has been, like everyone else? With terrible new presidents and all them famous people dying?
Nah, actually this has been a really good year, for me at least. I’ve learned a lot about myself, and other things. I’ve realized that some things aren’t worth caring about at all, while other things are vital to even feel good.
Recently I’ve also realized that I’ve had to many things on my plate. I’ve always had the notion that when I play a game, I need to stick to it and finish it before continuing onto the next. However, that is not the same notion that I’ve had with other things. For example, I have way too many hobbies. Whenever I find something new and fun, I move onto that even though I just started a new project with something else.
So, my big promise for the new year is to stick to things I’ve started and finish it before anything else. What’s yours?
So, yet another Christmas Eve filled with tasty food, candy and presents.
It’s a really nice feeling to realize that you actually have such good friends around you. Now, this is a thing I often realize, but I suppose in times like Christmas, even if you don’t believe in what it stands for and maybe only wants the food, I think about it a bit more.
Christmas is, even if only for the company, food and cuddles, a really cozy time. All the lights, the good food, cozy moods and presents, I always enjoy it.
I hope you had/will have a great Christmas as well.
Merry Christmas to you all!
