Celebrate The Small Things: 15 April
I’ve gotten really busy all of a sudden. I’m helping a friend with his dissertation by putting together a few diagrams and maps. It’s satisfying to do, especially knowing that my work could end up part of a book eventually. He’s been telling me that my work is outstanding too. Always helps your confidence a little to feel like your efforts are appreciated. On one of the tasks he seemed unsure that I’d be able to do it, but I like a challenge.
The main thing for me this week is the arrival of Dark Souls III. I’ve been waiting for this game for quite some time and it’s amazing. When I pre-ordered they told me that they couldn’t promise that it was going to be a collectors edition, but they had just one in stock and went to great lengths to ensure I got it. We’re also keeping up with the Dungeons & Dragons. I’ve been taking on the feedback from all of my players and I think I’m improving at being the Dungeon Master. It’s challenging when they want to explore something that’s not in my adventure book, but it’s fun trying to improvise. My players also looked sad when one of my NPCs died and were cringing with some of my enemy descriptions. Actually, I’m not sure if that does make me a good dungeon master, but at least I’m bringing the story to life for them.
Planted some wild flowers in the hopes of attracting some butterflies to the garden. Had some pleasantly warm days this week.
