Videogame Journal

I recently bought The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame for my Nintendo Switch.  I love the lego games so I’m looking forward to getting into it.  There’s always so much to do and unlock.  I actually bought it at a Gamestop which was fun, normally I just order my games through Amazon but it was really fun being in a physical store with all the games and merchandise around, really tempting to spend lots of money haha.

I’m counting down until Animal Crossing: New Horizons is released, not too much longer!  Can’t wait!  I love AC games.  They’ve always been so relaxing and beneficial to my mental health.  The graphics look wonderful.  I can definitely see myself putting hundreds plus hours into it like I’ve done with the previous games.

Still playing Stardew Valley.  Joined a group for the game on Facebook and I’m amazed at everyone’s farms.  I haven’t really put any thought into mine, it’s honestly just a big mess.  But I’m getting inspired to make my farm nice.  Finally saved up enough to get the final house upgrade, now I’m just collecting the hardwood required for it. It’s really astounding how much there is to do in SV.   It was definitely a good purchase.

I finished the main game in Pokemon Sword, now I’m just working on filling up my Pokedex and breeding Pokemon to try and get shinies.  I’m looking forward to the expansion pass coming out.

That’s all that’s going on for me right now in terms of games.  I’m planning on saving money for an Xbox one, so hopefully I can get it by the summer.

Thanks for reading!

Moving and Other Stuff

Lots of stress going on lately.  Getting ready to hopefully move in mid February, I have all the documents needed for the new apartment complex so I just need to submit the ones I had been waiting on next week.

It’s very cold here, when I went out in the morning it was 9 degrees Fahrenheit.  My face froze and I felt like a had a brain freeze too!  It felt good to come back inside and have a hot cup of coffee.

Starting a 30 day challenge of eating no junk food, and praying the Rosary daily.  I’ll begin tomorrow.  Trying to implement some better habits into my life.  It’s going to be difficult, mainly the 30 days without junk food.  I will document it with blog posts.  I’m a major sugar addict.

Playing a lot of Stardew Valley and Pokemon Sword lately.

There’s so much to do in Stardew it’s amazing.  Saving up to get another building on my farm to store trunks in.  My character is married now, to Harvey.  Trying to become friends with the wizard so I can change my appearance.  Also working on getting the final house upgrade.  I’ve been getting most of my money from fishing, it’s just really relaxing.  I find I love fishing in many games, Animal Crossing, The Sims, other RPGs like Fantasy Life and Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons.

In Pokemon Sword I’m about to face the champion then after that I’ll work on completing my Pokedex and getting shinies.

Have so much to do in the next couple of weeks with packing and cleaning.  I’m donating a TON of books to make the move easier and keep my life a little simpler/less cluttered in the new place.  Just hanging onto a few favorite series, some of my Catholic books, and a couple autographed books.  Also got rid of tons and tons of stuff I no longer needed, just all kinds of random things.  Feels good, it will be a nice fresh start!


Update – Eating Disorder Relapse and Other Stuff

I had, I don’t know, I guess it would be called a relapse with my eating disorder.  Yesterday was rough. I feel like I’m failing with recovery but I’m going to keep moving forward. There’s no such thing as perfect, people make mistakes.

Anyway, things are going pretty well otherwise. My ceiling is in the process of being repaired from the water damage. That should be finished this week thankfully, it says been giving me a lot of anxiety.

I’ve been playing a lot of Stardew Valley, it’s such a relaxing game. It’s fall right now in my game so I’m growing a bunch of pumpkins 🎃. I’ve also been playing Hexalogic, it’s a sudoku type game, I got it awhile back for $2.99 on the Nintendo Switch Eshop. There’s well over 90 levels, the graphics are beautiful and the music and sound effects are very chill and relaxing.
