GOG Winter Sale Again

GOG Winter Sale Again

GOG are doing one of those things again! SOMA's currently free, and Fantasy Generals is basically free too! Spend a meager 0.01 USD and you get it... though of course there are no games that cheap, so technically: spend a dollar.

I just wish you could sort games by price, or even better: by rebates, in ascending order, and I'd be all on this... but the game giveaways on this one: sure. I got those. Background here.

A Life That's Full Of Wonder...

A life that's full of wonder, is a wonderful lie.

I really thought that was what they were singing! It felt so right. Apparently: that last word's supposed to be life. You hear what you want to hear...?

It was a wonderful lie while it lasted. Poetic. True. Grounded.


Merry Christmas!

It's that time of the year again! I've spent pretty much the entire day packing, but it's time to spend the rest of it opening, and spending time with the folks. Just stopping by to officially wish y'all a...

Merry Christmas!

Right on time. ;) Hope you're having a cheerful time with peers and whomever you happen to have around! Have a good one.

All That I Missed

Holy shit time just flew by the last couple of weeks! This thing kept me preoccupied a bit, but I'm fixing it. I've actually been working on it today too. Hope to send off a rough draft of it before the day is done, and before tomorrow cause then it's Christmas. Just thought I'd post a quick Sunday recap before then.

So what have I been up to the last month? A lot. Bout to get into that. I'm listening to Mac Miller right now. RIP. Also shout-out again to Comicks, and a great but tiny concert that's fueled me for quite a few of these days.

Also don't wreck the net!

My nail's still black, but feels alright. I'm good on the backup front. I've been updating a few of my computers too, and read about how if you're on Windows 7 you'd better make sure to stay up-to-date in February or you'll miss out on the rest of the updates. They're adding encryption, and then dropping support for updates without it. Way to get rid of all people not actively using their Windows 7 machines.

But as for life-related stuff again: I'm all better from that stomach flu. I'm working out now, and things are all working out now... but for most of this month I didn't feel like I had time to. I took a company course late November (super nervous but also super fun - it was super expensive but fortunately the company paid for that), I've tried Sushirullen (it's a new fast-food concept here - sushi rolls), had a movie afternoon with an old buddy, went to TGI with another buddy one day (that was the restaurant we'd booked before that thing), went to a special pizzeria with that same buddy a few days later, sold and sent out a view items via auctions, spent a few days in Östersund visiting my brother (it snowed all the time while we were there! Amazing first taste of winter, and apparently we arrived with their first real snow too). Fantastic trip. Going back there in January.

I've had some annoying train delays to and from work though, of which the longest happened just when I'd jumped off the train to get some sushi rolls. Another day I jumped off a train and fetched some sushi, and then came back in time to catch the same train. We've only had sushi twice this month. Yupp, great delays on both of those days.

Another day we came from Östersund and had to wait like half an hour on the train home, after arriving half an hour late by train. A few other days I sat on late trains training at Advance Wars (I'm 500 hours in right now). But for the most part the trains haven't been late... so that's good.

We had our Christmas dinner at work, this year at Koh Phangan: Sweden's oldest Thai restaurant (it's named after an island - if you recognize the name), took a final shopping tour with that buddy mentioned earlier the day after, went to our yearly Little Christmas event with a few relatives and friends, have booked in a few more trips for next year, bought a tree, and this weekend we've been prepping for Christmas. Which is tomorrow. Received some Christmas gifts and had some Christmas tea at work this past Wednesday, and this week the snow came rolling in down South too.

Have taken a couple refreshingly bright walks this weekend and hope to take a few more next week because: I'm free! Christmas vacation. Finally have time to record some random stuff like this (I'll be uploading those here later on), and that's... pretty much it? Hope to have some time to spare on the site too, and catching up on all sorts of fun things... and less fun things. So much to clear before the New Year, as always. Like this one track I'll hopefully get done tonight. Right after I post this. Pardon any potential typos since I plan on not thoroughly revising it before I post. There'll be time for that later.

Bet I'll be packing in gifts and spending time with the family in a bit.

It's been a good month, but I did not realize it had been a month since my last weekly post here! Really feels like I've been doing more things than I have, apparently... though plenty of this time has been spent at work, more hectic than usual, and plenty with this. That's been intense! Priorities right?

So that's basically it for this quick month-long catch-up mashup of mostly good times and though some tiresome times no mishaps much. I wish you all the best, in this very merry season where you'd better cherish the very rare spare time you have and spend time with your peers with utmost care! Hope to share a bit more these coming days, and it definitely won't be this long again until my next long post. Knock on wood.

Merry Christmas.

A Fix For The Thing

I stall. I do other stuff. I start getting motivated and I stay up late, but then I slow down, give up and go to bed stressed. And wake up late. And feel stressed the next day too.

This is the one thing I want to kick for the new year. This and a lot of other things... but this is the one thing.

I've said I'd make my old resolutions post public when I'd accomplished my mission therein posted, but it seems I'm not there quite yet...

Third time's the charm, right? Year-like alarm.

But this year I think I'll have a new list ready when the time comes. Guidelines for self-betterment. Just a few, because humans love a challenge but only when it's one they actually feel capable of accomplishing.

Maybe that's been my err in the past.

This time... no errors. Grade A. A shade of gray.

Just Because You Have Their Attention...

Just because you have their attention, doesn't mean you have their respect.
