House Keeping 11/7/19

Time feels like it’s moving really fast just now. Things are getting really, solidified I guess? The fact that I’m going to have an Associate’s degree and be moving cities in just a couple of months just doesn’t seem like it can be real. It is, but it feels like I’m going to wake up or someone will take all that away.

Nerves right?

Not much to say this week. I’ve got a ton of class work to work on and I’m terrified because finals feel like they’re landing yesterday. But that’s something to keep working through.

I’ve got a set of dice I’m working on re-inking that I can’t wait to show off. Having a little trouble with the d20, but the others look great.

I also got a super cool set of dice from one of Dice Envy’s mystery bags. I think it’s their new Vantapurple set. I’m really excited to try them out. If you’re looking at getting a new set of dice, these certainly look nice and you can save 10% on your purchase this week with the code TOOPURPLE.

Still hoping that I’ll be able to get something worked out with the “Sunshine’s Journals” and dice review posts. That’ll have to be when I take a break from class work some time. It felt good having something to post this week.

And that’s about it.

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. I’m going to be consuming a lot of caffeine here soon. In either case, have a great rest of the week!

Happy Halloween all!

So, it’s been awhile hasn’t it? I’m still fighting my way through classes, dealing with work and all that. It isn’t fun, but I’m making it I think.

The Halloween Dice Giveaway is still running until midnight central tonight, if anyone is still wanting to enter.

No idea when regular content is returning. Possibly some time after December finals. Hopefully sooner. I certainly have enough “Sunshine’s Journals” entries to write up and dice to review.

Really excited for dice reviews in the near future. The Ice Cream Dice Kickstarter should be shipping now and arriving sometime in the foreseeable future. Then other dice Kickstarters besides.

On a side note, Dice Envy is releasing the remaining sets of Avocado Toast and Heart Dice sets onto the site. If you’re interested, you can use the promo code AVOCADO this weekend for 10% off your purchase.

And that’s about it. I’m a bit of a mess when it comes to reading lately, so nothing on that front.

As always, if you like what I’m doing here feel free to leave a comment or a like. I always dig the 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. I’ve also set up a page with links to my referal links and to my ko-fi page. In any case, have a safe and happy Halloween and a great rest of the week!

I am officially midway through midterms. Once I’m done with them I’m going to pass out and sleep as long as I’m allowed to. It’s sort of hit that point where the stress is starting to break, so I’m not super keyed up and just constantly want to nap.

Of course, this all just means that I get to jump into the next half of the semester and try to keep up with things better this time. I actually missed one of my midterms because I was looking for them on the web calendar rather than the class page. There was a make up midterm, and I think I did okay on it, but still.

I’m hoping to get the dice review and a “Sunshine’s Journals” post up sometime this week, but I don’t know if that will happen. Fingers crossed I guess?

That’s about it for this time. If you like what I’m doing here, or what I’ve done here in the past, feel free to leave a comment or a like. Positive feedback gives me the warm fuzzies. 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!

House Keeping 10/8/19

So, I am super nervous about a midterm tonight. It isn’t even one that should pose a problem for me. It’s just that the fact that midterms are happening reminds me that the semester is halfway done. And this is only the first midterm, the gate way to the ones that do concern me.

It’s hitting harder than expected. Nothing I can’t handle though. Just have to adjust a little and keep going!

That as a given though, I’m not going to make any promises for content for the next couple of weeks. I have a couple of days off where I might be able to get something posted, but I need to study more just now if only so I feel better about the whole deal.

I’ve got some plans on the back burner. More on those probably next week.

I’ve got a little yet to hash out for those and I want to make sure that I can make them work before I go talking a big game here.

And that’s about it for this week.

Standard stuff. If you like what I’m doing here, as little as I’ve been doing lately, feel free to leave a comment or a like. And if you really like what I’m doing here you can feed my caffeine addiction and buy me a ko-fi or treat yourself to a set of dice using my Dice Envy referral code. In any case, have a great rest of the week!

Had my first speech in class today. Talking about putting together a basic Pathfinder character.

I went over.

It’s bothering me some, but that just means that I have to do better on the next one. Given the professor’s reaction, I don’t think I’m allowed to do a speech on brown recluse.

Sad really, they’re fascinating little spiders.

On to other things though! I’m planning on doing my dice review tomorrow. The dice that I was waiting on arrived and it looks excellent!

Hoping to get the “Sunshine’s Journals” post up for Thursday this week. Wound up with my days off being eaten by class and chores last week, so it just didn’t happen. This week though. Maybe.

Still no ETA on when I’ll have a book review out again, which is a little frustrating because I’m still working on one and haven’t touched the book I’ve been reading in a week and a half. After doing the readings for two English classes I find myself just wanting to sit and do nothing most times.

But that also means that, as of now, I don’t really have a plan for a Halloween event for the blog. I’m hoping I’ll get something worked out between now and then because I enjoy throwing Halloween stuff at you all. But unless I wanted to do a book vs web series vs novella for Carmilla, I’m kind of sitting at nothing.

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 enjoy shouting into the void as much as the next person, but it’s nice to see what folks think once in a while. 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!

I’m not sick anymore! Like at all. It’s pretty great.

That is, unfortunately, about all I have to say just now. Class and work are continuing on with or without me and I’m having to work to catch up.

I’ve got a really cool d6 that should be arriving some time in the near future and I’m super excited to talk about it. So, next Monday’s dice review is going to be a little dependent on when that arrives.

I’m also considering just taking a day or part of a day to get the next few “Sunshine’s Journals” posts scheduled. I keep thinking that I’ll have the time and energy to get them posted for Thursday and then the next thing I know I’m looking at Monday morning again and have no idea where the weekend went. I have a small backlog of them thanks to not having managed to get them posted, so if I can get them scheduled that should sort of prevent a run of absent weeks if anything happened and we didn’t play.

All that said, I still don’t have a book review for tomorrow. I’ve been kicking one around, but it’s been hard to get it to come across without spoiling big chunks of what happens or rambling for ages.

Following that though, I think once I’ve gotten my homework for the week done I’ll sit down and just work on that for a little while. Once I figure out where I’m getting hung up on it there shouldn’t be much of a problem in getting the rest written down.

I’ve said a lot for not having much to say. But it makes me realize that I’ve got a lot of stuff to be excited about right now. And there’s only more cool stuff for later, so it feels good to have written this.

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 or use my Dice Envy referral link next time you treat yourself to a new set of dice. In either case, have a great rest of the week!

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!

House Keeping 9/10/19

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!

House Keeping 9/4/19

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!
