School is soon to be upon us. For many of you it probably already is. I wonder how many of you are ready yet. I for one, am nowhere close. I almost have all the money I need, but I still need to get all my books and my parking permit. It’s crazy how quickly things can sneak up on you.
The summer has been weird. Today marks my one year anniversary at my job. For those of you who don’t know, I work at a Tae Kwon Do dojang. I only teach occasionally, for the most I do administrative work and I babysit the kids. For awhile I took kids to and from school. During the summer though was our camp. Camp has been a nightmare. I’m used to kids that are undisciplined and want nothing more than to make my life miserable, but it’s hit a new level recently. I won’t be upset when school starts and I have to reduce my schedule to two days a week (as opposed to full time).
Despite my busy schedule and recent relationship stuff (we just had our one month anniversary ) I have had some time to game. I started Dishonored a little while back. I’m about two hours in so far and I’m not finding it all that fun. I don’t know if I’m just early and it picks up or not. I hope so. The blink mechanic isn’t as amazing as I’d hoped it would be as well. I don’t know, it feels “half made” so far.
Otherwise I played all the way through Gone Home a few nights ago. Now that’s a game. It’s beautiful in its simplicity. Everything you’ve heard about the game – hype wise – is justified. It’s a short game, but if you’re into story-driven games that don’t beat you over the head with their revelations or plot points, then you’ll love Gone Home. I didn’t cry at the end like most people, but it certainly made me feel something and that’s more than I can say for most games.
With school looming just over the horizon I’m not sure how much gaming I’ll be able to accomplish. But I know I’ll have my trusty 3DS by my side.
Good luck to the rest of you heading back to school! ❤
