Bought a new gaming console

I’ve been doing really well.  A medication increase has helped me a lot.  My mood has been great and I have little anxiety.  I was struggling for awhile with a really bad depressive episode and extreme anxiety, frequent panic attacks.

I’m also using a lot of coping skills too of course.  One new favorite is meditation, it’s a great way to relax and calm my mind.  Mindfulness is great too, being present in the moment and aware.  That helps ease my anxiety.  I also journal every day, good way to get all the thoughts running through my head out.  And then there’s my hobbies that I do which keep me in a positive mood.

Oh yeah, big news, I finally bought an Xbox One!!!  It should be delivered sometime next week.  I’m super excited.  I’ve only ever had the 360 so I figured it is way beyond time for an upgrade.  I’m also happy that it can play Blu Ray discs and DVDs.  I had never had a Blu Ray player before, and it was kind of frustrating because a lot of the movies available to check out at the library were Blu Ray but I could only play regular DVDs.  I have some Xbox 360 games that are compatible with the Xbox One so I’m probably going to be playing those first then buy new games later on.  Eventually I’d like to get a PS4 as well.

So it’s been 3 months in my new apartment and I really love it.  It’s so nice and cozy.  I feel safe and have a lot of support.

There’s a lot I want to do in terms of decorating I haven’t gotten to yet.  But I did buy a bedding set recently which I love


I still need to get curtains.  And more furniture.  A desk near the windows where I can do my drawing.  A welcome mat for outside my door, pretty shower curtain, etc… I’ll be able to do it over the next several months, just doing a little at a time.

Anyway, this was a long random post but thanks for reading!

Currently Playing… #1

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been having internet issues on and off the past week or so.  Anyway, things are going very well!

I started playing The Hobbit LEGO on my Nintendo 3DS.  I have it for my Xbox 360 as well, which I’ll play through eventually too.  It would be nice if a remastered version of that and The Lord of the Rings LEGO for the switch like they did with the Harry Potter games.  I’ve been meaning to re-read the books at some point as well, such a great story!

On my Xbox 360 I’ve started playing Red Dead Redemption.  I’m basically just getting the hang of the game and controls right now since I’m not very familiar with it and it’s been awhile since I’ve played.  I love the scenery and am saving money for an Xbox One so I can play RDR 2 eventually which looks amazing.  Right now I’ve been doing a lot of bounty hunting which is pretty fun.

With Animal Crossing New Leaf I’m getting closer to paying off my entire house loan with all the expansions.  I’ve put 150 hours into the game over the past 2 years and am finally getting there!  It’s taken so long but I don’t mind because of how relaxing the game-play is.

I saw that the Nintendo Switch Lite is available for pre-order.  I’ll likely eventually get the yellow one and also the Pokemon special edition version.

Feel free to comment with whatever you’re currently playing! 🙂
