Good news! I’m mostly recovered from being sick.

It’s great and I’m hoping I’ll be able to accomplish a bit more now that I’m rested and recovered. Still have class stuff to catch up on and, of course, I’m having to get back into the swing of work. That’s all fine though.

I’ve got a dice review coming up tomorrow morning. It’s for the Dice Envy Original Box from August, and it’s one I’ve been really excited to talk about.

“Sunshine’s Journals” post should be up Thursday. It’s the first of a two parter that was a lot of fun to play through.

I don’t have a lot beyond that. Not much happens when you spend a week getting a month and a half’s worth of sleep.

So, standard stuff I guess. If you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing here you can feed my caffeine addiction any buy me a ko-fi. In any case, have a great rest of the week!

So, I’ve been sick the past week. Like, calling out of work and class and just trying to sleep it off sick. Mostly better now, I’m just still coughing a lot and have lost my voice.

Good times.

That’s a big chunk of why nothing went to plan last week. I got hit really hard with the sick and just sort of disappeared from reality.

But I’m trying to come back now. No promises on what I’ll get done this week, I do have a fair amount of school stuff to also catch up on, but I’m hoping to finally have something out for you all.

That’s about it for this one.

Have a great rest of your week!

It’s the start of a new month and I’ve got more of the same stuff still going.

There’s been a bit of an issue that is eating my free time, so I’m likely to be away from the blog more than I already have been recently. Not sure how long it’ll last, but it’s going to be longer than I’d hoped. It’s going to be a rough start to the month.

That said, I’m hoping to finally have another “Sunshine’s Journals” post up some time tomorrow and, hopefully, the dice review for the week up on Friday. I’ve gotten my Originals dice box for the month and really want to talk about the set.

That’s about it for now. I might post pictures of the crocheting project I’m working on, or ramble about something. But those are nebulous ideas that are just as likely to not happen.

All the same.

Standard stuff, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. I feed on positive reinforcement. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. Either way, have a great rest of the week!

Still busy with classes and work, things haven’t quite evened out yet. But I think I’m going to do alright. Gotta practice a speech for class later this week, which is a bit nerve wracking, but doable.

There should definitely be a “Sunshine’s Journals” post on Thursday.

I’m working on a book review, but don’t know if I’ll be able to finish it for tomorrow. It’s an interesting book, well written and plotted. There’s just enough going on in it that it’s difficult to talk about without spoiling anything.

Friday’s going to be fun though. I’ve got a guest post for you all.

That’s about it for this one.

Standard stuff, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. I feed on positive attention. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing here you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. Either way, have a great rest of the week!

Classes started this past Friday. Still excited. Still terrified. But I’m on top of things now, so it’s just a matter of staying there.

Work is going pretty good too.

I’m at a good place for everything except getting things done here. And I’m working on that.

Speaking of, I’ve got a guest post coming up for you all tomorrow. It’s a good one, so I hope you all will enjoy it.

“Sunshine’s Journal” post should be up as usual. And I’m hoping I’ll have a book review done for next week. Same for dice reviews, I just didn’t get the one for yesterday finished in time.

That’s about it for this one. I’ve got a lot going on, but not a lot to talk about.

Standard stuff then. If you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. Feedback is always good. If you really like what I’m doing, you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. If you don’t want to do that but are about dice, I’ve also got a Dice Envy referral link you can use. In any case have a great rest of the week!

So it turns out that starting a new job is not conducive to reading.

Who’d have thought?

No book review this week. I should still be fine for the “Sunshine’s Journal” post, it’s mostly written already, I’d just have to type it in here and get it ready to go live. Similar deal for next Monday’s dice review, I’ve got the dice I’m going to use for it and I’ve played with them a little. It’s just a matter of writing the review and gathering my resources for links and whatnot.

Speaking of dice, Dice Envy has a sale going at the moment. Just use the coupon code CRITHIT at checkout and it’ll get you 15% off your purchase. Makes for a great chance to pick up a set you’ve been looking at.

Beyond that, I’ve got classes starting Friday. Exciting and terrifying that. Just have to keep my grades up until end of term and I’ll have my associates degree. But also, I’m jumping back into work and classes and that frightens me more than a bit.

Nothing I can’t handle, I’m sure. I just have to keep reminding myself of that for awhile.

And that’s about it.

Standard stuff, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. I feed on positive feedback. And of course if you really like what I’m doing here, or just empathize with the horrors of buying text books, you can also feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. Either way, have a great rest of the week!

So, there’s going to be more scheduling slips than usual in the coming weeks. Bad news for the blog, but good news for the me. I have a job again. And, better still, within the next couple of weeks I’ll be back in classes and on my way to finishing my Associates.

I am quietly and tremendously panicking about both of those things.

But my job is willing to work with my class schedule, so that’s one worry off my mind.

In light of that though, I’m going to try to keep up with things as they have been. The stress of getting all this set up has already resulted in a few slips, but they should be manageable. Planning on trying to get things scheduled for posting early in the day instead of writing them late at night. That just kind of seems like a good plan any way.

But, yeah, dice and book reviews are going to continue as they have been. The “Sunshine’s Journals” posts are kind of tied to when my game group meets, so those are always going to have the possibility of not happening. I will have one for this week and, depending on how I stretch it, one for next week. That’s all depending on how I write a minor time skip.

The book review for this week is likely to be late. Reading is one of the things that just sort of didn’t happen while I was worrying over suddenly having employment again and what all I would need to do to get into classes. So I’m about a third of the way through the book I was planning to review this week. Going to work on reading more of it tonight and tomorrow, but my best guess on when the review will land is going to be Friday or Saturday.

And that’s about it for this one.

Standard stuff, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. I feed on positive attention. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing here you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. Depending on my work schedule that’s going to be going to literal coffee in the coming weeks. In either case, have a great rest of the week!

As it turns out, I’m still running behind.

Could be worse though, I got a lot done today. With even the thinnest slice of luck I’m going to be a college student again by this time next week. It’s a little scary, but I’m excited!

Things are going to be a little patched around this week again. We didn’t have a game night last Friday, so no “Sunshine’s Journals” post this week. I’m going to use Thursday to post my dice review for the week. It’s a set that I’ve been looking for, so I’m happy to have found it and happier to be talking about it. I should have a book review up tomorrow. Not quite sure when tomorrow though, that’s going to depend on how much of it I can get written tonight.

Hopefully the whole thing, right?

I’m also not going to be traveling much for awhile. That mostly just means that I should be able to even out my schedule again shortly. Also, hopefully, that the Jonesy cat will stop eating my Christmas cactus.

I’ll probably also share pictures of my current crocheting project once it’s finished. Mostly I just want to boast about finally learning hairpin lace. Mostly.

That’s about it!

Standard stuff. If you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. I feed off your attention, it drives me. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing here you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. At this point that three dollars would be, like a hundredth of a text book. In either case, have a great rest of the week!

So, this week is off to a fun start. I’m behind again, but also I’ve gotten to make honey lavender bread with my mom. Totally worth it.

Related to that and having been sick last week, I’m not as close to done with my book for this week as I need to be. My plan to take care of that is to post Monday’s dice review tomorrow, then the “Sunshine’s Journal” post Thursday, and then have the book review up Friday. With any luck, that’ll have me back to a mostly normal schedule going forward.

Really shouldn’t be relying on luck there, but I feel a little weird saying anything more solid. Working on it though. And excited for the book I’m reading now.

That’s about it for this week.

Standard stuff, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. It’d probably go amazing with the bread.

Hey all, sorry about the non-starter of a week. I’ve been feeling ill the last few days, so nothing’s gotten done. Deeply unfortunate, but a thing that happens from time to time.

Just now, I’m planning on having the “Sunshine’s Journal” post up for tomorrow and then treating the rest of the week as a wash. That means that we’re going to start back on Monday with the usual dice review and roll from there.

Standard stuff, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. And, of course, if you really like what I’m doing here you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi. In either case, have a great rest of the week!
