Celebrate The Small Things: 9 October
I’ve been settling back home after my holiday. I had a lovely time away and after the initial shock of returning I’ve had an extra spring in my step. I’ve been doing a little bit of programming and art this week, and also worked on my colouring book while listening to relaxing music – wanting to keep that chilled out holiday feeling. Although, rather in contrast to this, one thing I was looking forward to getting back to was being able to give Frictional Games’ SOMA a go. I’m not finding it too scary, but I’m not disappointed with it. I’m actually quite impressed by the level of detail in there. It’s not much longer till Halloween, and I’m getting into that horror game mood again. I also found a collectors edition guide for Diablo 3 for just £5. I usually only get guides for games I’m really fond of – just as a collector – but I’ve been playing Diablo recently and that seemed like a really good price.
I had a lovely and unexpected surprise the other day. Some mail arrived from another country and I was confused as to why I’d be getting anything from there. Turned out to be a letter from a pen pal I had 10 years ago. Apparently they kept all of my letters and had included a photocopy of one. That was a bizarre blast from the past and it sort of made me cringe to see how much I’ve changed. It use to mean a lot to me to be able to write those letters because I struggled to find like minded people or to connect with others when I was younger – well I still do a little in all honesty. It’s pretty flattering that they’ve remembered me after all this time and I can’t wait to write back.
I finished another book from the A Song Of Ice And Fire series while I was away. Two more to go.
