    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…

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…

    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…
