Some of what I’ve been up to in the past 8 months

WOW! It’s been 8 months since I’ve written on my blog. A loooot has happened in my life in these past 8 months. As you can tell from the title, I’ve gotten a new job since the last time I posted (woot!), I’ve picked up some wearables in the name of Fitbit and Motorola (reviews up soon), and I have been playing a bunch of new PC games (The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Payday 2, and The Forest to name a few).

The main thing I want to focus in this is just a general life update. I will of course be putting reviews up of the wearables and the many games I have been playing, but that will be soon.

I really lucked out when it comes to my current job. As I mentioned before in my last My Life post, I was really diving into learning more web design in the form of HTML and CSS. Well, I ended up landing a job doing exactly that. I currently work as a front-end designer for a start-up design firm that is targeted towards small businesses. It has been amazing since I have essentially been given the opportunity to learn on the job, and I make more then I did in my last job.

Of course me having a new job and making a little more money has enabled me to finally pick up some wearables which I’ve been saying I’ve wanted since early last year. The two wearables I’ve picked up is a Fitbit Flex and the Moto 360. I definitely love my Moto 360 for the smartwatch capabilities and I definitely love my Fitbit for making me realize how lazy I can be some days (but the days that I have a lot of steps I feel much better about myself). I also plan on checking out getting a Razer Nabu X or wait for orders of the Razer Nabu to open up, so look forward to a review on one of those two.

On the gaming side I have played a looooot of games in the past eight months. The games I’ve played are (in no particular order):

  • Destiny
  • Payday 2
  • Counter-Strike:Global Offensive
  • The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
  • Dying Light
  • Watch Dogs
  • The Escapists
  • Goat Simulator
  • H1Z1
  • I am Bread
  • The Long Dark
  • Saints Row IV
  • Shovel Knight
  • Risk of Rain
  • This War of Mine
  • The Forest
  • League of Legends

I’m pretty sure that is just about every game that I have sunken time into that I haven’t already written about (except League of Legends, still my favorite past time). I’ll write reviews for some of the ones that I sunk a bit more time into and do maybe a brief write up for the others.

Long story short, I have a lot to write about in the upcoming months, and there will definitely be more as I go.

What exciting things have happened in your life in the past 8 months? New games? New Job? New…. anything?
