So it's been about a week since I started playing Borderlands 3, and I am absolutely hooked. It's still a bit too soon for me to write up a full review, but I've been taking notes on the experience. In the meantime, I figure I could share my initial reactions.
I got to experience first hand how many people just don't wear masks when they go out, and it is terrifying. Yesterday I went to get groceries at what I thought was an 'off' time, but wound up being the busiest I've ever seen this grocery store. As I walked in, I saw almost everyone walking around without masks. No social distancing being done, and people coming in with their family of five.
Ahh, fighting games. One of my weaker genres, but a fav nontheless. In high school, I started playing Street Fighter IV. My enjoyment was never from the competition side of things, but just having fun with combos.
Man I'm feeling good. I've got a snowball building up and it's looking to be a good July. I got an amazing deal on a PS4 pro that I'm picking up tomorrow, in 3 weeks I'll have my last loan paid off, and after that, we start rolling into a busy season at work. It's been on my mind all weekend (as well as Borderlands 3, but that will be a big post in the near future).
So today I had the pleasure of leading a meeting for a local group. We were trying to determine what programs we should use that fit our needs best. I'm relatively new to the group (and new to leading meetings), but I've participated enough to have a strong idea of how to make sure the meeting was effective.
Beyond budgeting and paying off student loans, another financial interest of mine has to be playing the credit card game. During my third year of college, I applied for two different cards: the Discover it and a card with my personal bank. My hope was to build credit so if I ever needed to take out a personal/home/auto loan, I would be able to get a good deal.
So I've always been a techie. Hopefully this blog has made it obvious. One of my weaknesses has been working with servers. I learned a little bit about making a WordPress blog in high school, but it just didn't come easily for me.
It's been a while since I've experienced nostalgia, maybe a few years. For the longest time, the easiest way to experience nostalgia was to listen to music my mom would always play when cleaning the house growing up:
I've spent most of the day updating different systems of mine. One of the main things I updated was reinstalling Debian. I also added new links on the blog, downloaded screenshots from my consoles, and uninstalled some apps from my phone. The last thing I did was switched my Tails USB to a smaller storage device.
Earlier today I noticed that write.as has their own series of writing prompts that get updated weekly found here. Anyone can make a submission from that link, so if you want to join in, go on ahead. No cost and no risk.
