Today comes my annual dosage of existential angst, served with cake!
Yeah, it's my 38th birthday.

I still have not purchased any new games so far this year, which must be a new record for me. One month without an impulse digital game purchase. I actually was able to set aside a decent amount of money last month because of it. Well, more than usual.

I am currently appreciating the irony of seeing PS4 advertisements on an Xbox achievement site. Maybe I should pay for membership again to kick them out of my sight. Heh.

I had a large party with great friends last weekend. It was essentially a Steven Universe marathon with buffalo wings, Coca Cola (which I broke my sobriety from for that day only), and cake. Odd, after not having any soda for a while, having it again after a few months without it, it really is kinda disgustingly sweet and syrupy. I did manage to lose 20 lbs in the last few months just by cutting soda out of my diet and replacing it with tap water, after all. Now one of my biggest problems is that I need to wear a belt with virtually every pair of pants that I own. I see a clothes shopping trip in my near future.

What are my gaming goals for my 38th year of life? Just have fun and get whatever achievements or trophies I can get as a single player on my Xbox and PlayStation consoles using my CompleteKurisu tag. There is no shame in being a SP only gamer who has spent too many hours boosting MP in the past and would rather not take that road again.

I am also now a PT student, and that has cut into my gaming time considerably. Adulting, the downfall of all gamers, has knocked on my door, and I have answered. Heh.

Well, cheers, and thanks for reading!

Interesting, I re-watched the movie Zodiac a couple days ago and Hurdy Gurdy Man is in the first scene and the ending credits. It's been stuck in my head since.

Comment by PiCkLE SQU1D at 02:10 on 24 Jul 2017

I heard that was a good movie. I never watched it though.

Comment by OneMore Redhead at 03:50 on 24 Jul 2017

It's good considering it's based on a true story. Check it out sometime.

I'm not using any solutions, so my completion estimate - if I get there - will be many hours. Played that way, it's fucking awesome.
