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.
This is day eight of the Blaugust Challenge.
We are over a week into the Blaugust challenge now, and so far I am mostly happy with my progress.
I surprised myself with how strongly I started off, but unfortunately it didn’t take long for me to run out of quality ideas. But then the posting schedule — or, rather, my lack of one — got in the way of remaining consistent.
This is day seven of the Blaugust challenge. Please ignore the date and pretend like it’s not the 8th today, k?
As per usual, I am woefully behind the times and have somehow not added my two cents to the blogging world’s reaction to the big World of Warcraft: Legion reveal that happened a few days ago.
So, let me make that up to you by having one bourbon too many and just writing whatever pops into my head about it! This is Illidan real talk, baby.
