This has been my first full week back blogging Monday, Wednesday, Friday, in a month. It’s been a rough month, and as the week crept closer to Friday, I wondered if I’d have any favorites at all.
Recently, after patiently listening as I detailed my problems, a friend asked me, “What has been making you happy lately?”
Of course, I responded, “Uhhh, [insert video game title here]”
Video games don’t actually make me happy, they just take my mind off of what is making me unhappy for a few hours. No shade to video games though, I’m a hardcore fan.
My friend’s question prompted me to consider what really makes me happy. That’s an easy one: creating stuff. I will always have “weekly favorites” as long as I keep setting time aside for being creative.
Without further ado, here’s what I liked this week.
- Seth Godin. Very smart guy, great advice, especially if you are feeling down on yourself. I’ve been listening to his podcast, Akimbo.
- My allergic reaction. I started getting weird bumps in the corner of my right eye, and my eye muscles felt tight. I was really worried it was something serious, but I went to the optometrist, and it’s just some kind of allergic reaction. So yes, I’m grateful for allergies this week.
- Drum roll please, I’m about to list another video game in my weekly favorites. And the winner is…Witcher 3: Wild Hunt! HUGE game, it will take me a very long time to even get close to finishing it. Great if you’re into fantasy stories, wonderfully difficult to master.
Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!
