    Journey into Fall

    Hard to believe that we’re almost at the start of the new school year. That it’s almost fall. This summer has been hard for a lot of us, and my life hasn’t been an exception to that. I’ve been busy with many, many non-content creation things, including my day job. I don’t want to go into the negative stuff other than to say fuck cancer. I’ve pressed pause on a stream schedule for right now, because I am getting the Kidlet ready to head back to school, and I have some big (good) family things coming up. A lot of streamers seem to be pressing pause as well, and I…

    I’m Back

    Of course, I get lyrics from a song in my head after writing I’m back. But I am slowly coming back to streaming and gaming. I’m able to say I’m back with a measure of confidence now. I had to take that time off for many reasons, and most of them were related to feeling overwhelmed from everything that was going on around me. Losing our cherished little Chihuahua Ozzy just set me on my butt. I will not allow myself to get to that point again. Over the past while, my streaming schedule has been a mess because I’m adjusting still to new tech, new location and the Kidlet…

  • happy unicorn improvement


    As I said in my last entry, the death of my dog really hit me hard. I had felt, for a long time, that I was on a treadmill that kept getting faster and faster. I couldn’t stop that treadmill to take a breath. But that day, that solidified that I needed to stop for a while. To step back. So, I did. Since that day, I’ve been working on my mental health, my creative life, and spending extra time with my family. My therapist has made sure, in my appointments since then, that I know that my coping skills are healthy, and that they are seeing improvement every time…

    Taking A Break

    This is a damn hard thing for me to say. I have prided myself on my ability to push through some tough situations. But this time, I can’t. As you may know, Tuesday morning, our youngest Chihuahua boy went out for a second morning run after my spouse put our daughter on the bus to head to school. He never came back from that run, and the entire day really has me feeling like I’ve been hit by a train emotionally, physically – pretty much every way you can think. We never expected what happened that day – that our Ozzy would go into uncontrollable seizures. That we’d have to…

    It’s Gonna Be May

    Well, another month down, and we’re staring at the beginning of May. Plans for this month, well, I am pressing pause on streaming for two weeks in the middle of the month – exact dates will be announced once the final details are in my hands. I am hoping to finish The Outer Worlds, and I have a few cute as hell games lined up that I want to stream. April has not been kind to me – what with the return of allergies from hell, and some family stresses that took it out of me. May is a big month here. Even bigger this year as it marks the…

    Level Up

    So, in just under a month, I’ll level up. Yep. I’m getting older. A privilege denied to a lot of people, and more so since this whole pandemic. Usually, I’d run a Facebook fundraiser for our local children’s hospital on my personal profile, but this year, I wanted to do something a bit different. This year, I’m raising funds for our local children’s hospital through Extra Life. My kiddo loves it when I do my streams and has asked repeatedly if they can be in one. They have benefited from our local children’s hospital in so many ways, and I feel so blessed that we’re close to such a world…

    April 2021 Game Plan

    We’re in the last days of March, and I’m thinking ahead for the next month. I will be sticking with the three days a week schedule for now. There are some changes that I’ve got planned, and I’m slowly finding my niche. I’m also finding myself in other ways – and that is both fun and frightening by turns. So, you’ll want to follow along at my Twitch channel, every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.

    Aaargh sums up my frustration with technology lately. First it was my audio being funky, and then Sunday night, my install of Diablo 2 decided to not work with my streaming software, and it looks like a Windows update messed it up. So one thing, then another and then another…. I’m about to go into the forest and scream. Aaargh ! But I’ll re-evaluate over the week and see what would be a good idea. Also, as we’re coming to the end of the month, I’ll be switching up my games for April. I’m still learning and working on things when it comes to streaming. I’ll always be learning. It’s…

    Change of Plans

    Last time I made a post about my plans for March. Of course, making plans, the universe likes to point, laugh, and go “watch this”. There is going to be a bit of a change up in my times and some of my games. My current time for streaming was a compromise between personal and work life that wasn’t working (in other words, we gave it a test run, it didn’t work well, now it’s time to go back to the drawing board and produce something new). Now I’m looking at moving my streams to the early evening in Eastern time (US) same days. Also, The Last Campfire is giving…

    Games For March 2021

    I’ve been trying to figure out what my plans are for the next few weeks. Right now I want to concentrate on three games for my Tuesday and Thursday streams. So for the Month of March, those three games are: 1. Genshin Impact 2. The Outer Worlds 3. The Last Campfire Why the three? Once the first few puzzles are done on The Last Campfire, you can get on a roll and get through the game at a good clip. So Tuesdays are going to be Genshin Impact, and Thursdays will be either The Outer Worlds or The Last Campfire. Sunday is a retro stream, and I will be making…
