Hoarder…

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Spent the day reorganising some cupboard space to clear a bit more off the floor. Since reorganising 6 months ago I’ve accumulated boxes on the floor and boardgames in piles everywhere.

I’m looking forward to game night with Andrew (friend in Daylesford). We have a regular Thursday night gig, as much for helping him wind down for the week and a time to catch up and just chat.

Trying to Plan Ahead…

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Confirmed a weekend down in Geelong for a coming weekend prior to Christmas. Some Photography & gaming.

Networks…

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Much the same as yesterday. I did join a “meetup.com” group for boardgames. I’m also going to try a weekly gaming session at GUF to ensure I get out of the house a couple of times a week for some fun. Networking might help with some work to keep the wolves at bay too!

Stepping Out…

Saturday, November 12th, 2016

A slow day. Plans for a burn off to get rid of the collection of branches blown down over the last few months by the wild weather were rescheduled due to too much wind. Additionally rain put a stop to mowing. So in the end I spend the afternoon going through boxes of old computing peripherals and cables trying to downsize. I also watched some interesting board game reviews and also some how to plays. I’m going to push myself to get out and try and do regular gaming once a week down at the local game store. Most of my gaming friends have moved or had children and no longer have the time for the sort of games I like to play. No surprise, there’s a lot of work and time involved in young children.

That said, I see an opportunity to develop another strategy to keep Depression at bay. I know that getting out can be a huge problem for me when Depression is growing, and I’m hoping that another social avenue may be helpful there, especially with something I enjoy so much. More on this strategy later.

Completely trashed day, slept until 16:30.

Did remember to watch the live-play Twilight Imperium put on by Dice Tower, so that was a win.

Mentally Afloat…

Interesting Weekend’s research into some of the finer points of photography, and some board gaming.

Research Day 2…

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

More youtube, I’m enjoying a bunch of Boardgames reviews & gameplay videos.

Research Day…

Monday, October 24th, 2016

Today was mostly Photography research and some writing. Supplemented with much “youtube”.

Of Zombies & Rebellions…

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

Boardgames played at Andrew’s today.

  1. Pandemic
  2. Star Wars Rebellion.
  3. Dead of winter.
  4. Zombie Dice

An excellent day had by all I believe. PC repairs were swift & successful. Star Wars Rebellion ended up with Rebel Scum being allowed to live to fight another day, the world was consumed by 2 Pandemics, and a couple of Zombie infestations. Overall a fairly successful gaming day, with much fun had by all.

Spirits Lifting…

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

I have a Boardgaming session at Andrew’s today. Boardgames to hopefully be played today:

  1. Pandemic
  2. Star Wars Rebellion.
  3. Dead of winter.
  4. Zombie Dice

Some of these will hurt like hell I think. I cut my finger (pinky) while making breakfast this morning and it’s stuffing my typing right up. I keep ending up hitting the “caps lock” without noticing because I can’t feel as well with the band-aids on my finger.

It seems we will be doing PC repairs before hand though. Damned Windows. Why can’t they just give in to the ease which is Apple? 🙂
