Life, the Universe & Everything (19/08) (Blaugust #19)


I’ve been gone a little bit the last few days, so I thought it’d be a good time to give a Life, the Universe & Everything update. I’ve managed to keep up with Blaugust posts somewhat, but I have fallen off the wagon a few times! I’m kind of kicking myself for missing a few days.

There are two major reasons for this: first of all, I’ve been sick since last week, and because of that I’ve been finding it hard to find the energy to get on my PC. Gaming has been limited since last Wednesday, and I had to miss work to rest up. It’s getting better now, but I’m still finding myself exhausted! I also have had a pretty busy week at work which isn’t helping, because I get home from work and all I want to do is chill and turn off my brain for a little while!

I’ve been playing a little bit of H1Z1 with T and we tried some Battle Royales together. I don’t think it’s really his cup of tea, but at least it gives me a little bit of company while we play!

In FFXIV I haven’t made a ton of progress. I did pick up my Esoterics weapon on Bard, but we’re having a bit of an issue with our static right now as there’s only five of us these days, and we probably need to start thinking about looking at recruitment to fill in the spots. It’s fine for now, as we’re just doing Alexander Normal runs for loot. But if any of us have any intention of trying Savage, I think we can all agree we’d rather be doing it as a premade than picking people up!

In streaming news, I have been failing on that front a little bit. Because of illness, I wasn’t in the right place to be able to stream. I was too tired and barely had my voice, not to mention I spent most of my time sneezing or coughing last week! So I’m trying to get back on that front this week as well. I was sad I couldn’t stream last night, due to Twitch issues most people couldn’t watch and my webcam kept dying so after about 45 minutes of trying I decided to stop and try again on my next stream night which is Thursday.

I plan to revive Scaredy-Cat Saturday again as well, and will consider kicking it off this Saturday. If I don’t, I will be looking at what horror games should be on my list. I’m still unsure about Resident Evil but I do need to finish it at some point.

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great week! I promise I will try to post more gaming content this week now that I’ve started to recover!
