A little while ago I read this fantastic post by Nerd Burger that talks about turning 30. In it, Cazz mentions that she is, ‘not what people want her to be’ but she really doesn’t care. It’s reassuring seeing someone who is my age be so confident in her decisions, especially when I myself only have a few months left in my 20’s and seem to constantly feel the pull over what I want to be doing with my life versus what I *should* be doing with it.
There were plenty of announcements at last weekend’s BlizzCon, but none more so than the news that not only was a new solo adventure coming, but it was being released this week! So, this morning I dusted off the old credit card and bought the adventure — $24.99 AUD for the whole thing — and I eagerly got stuck into the first wing of the latest Hearthstone solo adventure.
At the start of the month, I was determined that I was going to go hard with the ladder climb in Hearthstone. In addition to the ranked chests we now get at the end of each season, my husband had also surprised me with the 50 card packs pre-purchase bundle, and so I was eager to show that his generous gift had not been wasted on a pleb like me.
Back when I first started this blog, I had also started to get serious about losing weight. First, I just jumped on the treadmill. Later in the year, I signed up for the Michelle Bridges 12WBT challenge. By the end of the 2013, I had lost 14 kilos and was at a healthy BMI for the first time in my adult life.
After a horror 2014 and a 2015 that has been dogged with a severe lack of motivation, I have managed to gain back almost all of that weight. Sure, I have made a few lame attempts here and there to get back on track, but they never stuck, most likely because I haven’t been in the right frame of mind.
Gaming with your children can be a very rewarding experience, and not just because it is quality time spent together doing something that you both enjoy. Innovative parents are finding clever ways to incorporate education into game play, and Eco – the Global Survival Game that is currently on Kickstarter – looks to be taking this concept to the next level.
