Woah! It’s been a while since I did one of these, I guess that stands as a testament to my exciting lifestyle… Well where to start?
It’s coming up to that wonderful time that all students know too well… Deadline Day. As much as it pains me to say, as D Day approaches I won’t be uploading pieces as frequently, I will return to my former… glory? No not glory, just my former schedule as soon as I’ve squared my work away. Work that includes twelve polished poems and a rather long piece of short fiction, (oxymoron ahoy!) Amongst other things like process analyses and the like. I’ll try to put stuff up during these next few weeks, but I don’t want to rush things.
What else have I done since last I wrote one of these? Well, I attended my first poetry/spoken word open mic night at Twisted Tongues, and will be going to another in just three days time! There are always amazing poets and storytellers there and it’s wonderful to get involved in the writing community, instead of sitting behind my laptop in a dark corner all day (as much as I love doing that.)
There is something about spoken word that I have really fallen in love with, there are a lot of inspirational writers out there and it’s lovely to meet them all.
In other news, I’ve finally put aside enough money to escape England to somewhere sunny with the better half this summer, looking at Algarve at the moment. I love going to experience other cultures and their wonderful, wonderful food. I think getting away will be good for the health as well, all this stressing over University work makes a person tense, It’ll be nice to relax.
I’ve realised that I haven’t nerded out about games on WordPress, which is strange because I am indeed an avid gamer, and this week I’ve got my hands on:
Pillars of Eternity. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Pillars of Eternity is a throwback to the old style party-based RPGs like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale, which I used to play all the time with my Granddad when I was younger. Admittedly though, now was not a good time to get it, games like this take hundreds of hours to complete, much like the coursework I am doing at the moment… Ah well, I’ll strike a unhealthy balance where I miss out on meals to fit in everything I want to do.
And that’s it for this week, thanks for listening to me ramble, and just thanks for generally looking at my blog, every one of you is appreciated greatly by me! Take it easy. 🙂
