Making Some Changes

It’s October. Weather is pleasantly cool, and I”m starting vacation next week, although I am not going anywhere special. I’m taking the time off to recharge mentally and focus on polishing up my songs. 

Awhile ago, I was working with a musician friend, but we don’t talk anymore.   I think he gave up on me because we were not on the same wavelength. I am an introvert. He is an extrovert. I’m calm.  He is chaotic.  I am a morning person.  He is a night person.  But mainly because he told me video game is a waste of time and he was trying to turn me into someone that I am not. I don’t like that feeling.  

I guess artists have different ways at looking at the world.  One, you create art because you want the glamour that comes with it, or you create art because you feel inclined to imitate your universe so that you can see your creation from a third-person perspective. In the end, you make sense of yourself and your reality.  But of course, this is just my observation. Hmm…to be honest, I don’t even know if I am making any sense writing this.  

Let’s just say, I have been doing things alone creatively and have been obsessively playing the same song that has so many different versions over and over.  Do I think it’s good? I have no idea. All I know it’s from my heart and I am giving birth to it.   So this is part of the reason why I have not been active on this blog. So I am afraid this blog might shift from games and more towards creative works in the upcoming future. I don’t want to surprise anyone.  That doesn’t mean I have given up on games. I still play them when I can.  In fact, I will be playing Nonary Games next week. I am excited. Well, I think it’s time to sleep.

Thanks for reading.

Three things about me:

  • I love cloudy sky and the smell of pine trees
  • I never read Harry Potter. The girls from work like to give me a hard time about it
  • I walk faster than most people

My best post :Trying Not to be a Game-a-holic

This post has the most views and I think the most personal too. Thanks to everyone who has taken time to read and comment.  I’m doing a lot better.

Moving forward!

Questions from Lise: 

What would be the title of your autobiography?

I have no idea. Never thought about it.

Is there an album you feel like totally represents you?

No that is why I am writing songs but it might take me years at this rate

Is there a movie franchise (or just a single movie) you would love to be in?

No. I rather make the movie than be in the movie. Unless I can dance.  I like dancing.

If you had the chance to see yourself from someone else’s perspective, would you do it?

No way!

Have you ever thought about owning an exotic pet?

No. I’m more into plants.

 

Questions from Rei: 

Do you always smile for pictures?

The answer is no.

How many languages can you speak?  

Two

 

What is your Song of the week?

Do you eat fries with a fork?

With a napkin

Tea or coffee?

Both

Done! Now it’s my turn to ask!

My questions:

  1.  What is the scariest movie?
  2. If you were an animal what would you be?
  3.  If you can live in a video game, which game would it be?
  4.  What is your least favorite video game genre?
  5.  Do you like rice?

Since Lise and Rei already nominated me, it’s awkward to nominate them. I would like to hear their answers and I nominate anyone reading this.  Feel free to comment below. I’d like to hear them.

Happy Anniversary Blogging

The truth is, I’ve had this account for 5 years but never wrote or post anything until last year around this month.  Writing has helped me tremendously to connect myself with the rest of the world. It’s therapeutic. In fact, people I know in real life are beginning to understand why I keep a journal with me.  My thoughts spill and splatter everywhere.

So it’s no surprise I treat this blog the same way as I treat my journal except this blog is more organized than the actual journal. The blog has helped me enjoy game one at a time.  That in itself, is therapeutic because someone asked me what is my secret to smiling?  Having some alone time for reflection.  Story-driven video games help me do that because I am exploring other worlds and relating it to mine.

So wondering what I am up to? Currently I am playing Fragile Dreams,  but finding the energy and time to play the game has been a challenged. Life first, then play.  This game is going to take me forever to beat as well, although I’m sure I will have a lot to say about the game once finished.  I really am enjoying it so far– but my only complaint about it so far is the Wii controller, which took me some time to get used to. No instructions in game, so manual is extremely useful.

Fragile Dreams

As for my final thought, I have updated the about me page, if you are interested to see what to expect from this blog.  I’ll be here for awhile even though I don’t post as much or always hit the like button, I am always reading.  And you are always welcome to follow or visit me on Instagram. I am quite active there.

Thanks for reading and take care guys!
