This last month has been a very strange time for us all. I know a lot of people are finding the lockdown incredibly difficult, which is totally understandable, but I’m left feeling a little guilty for somewhat enjoying hiding myself away from the world. There’s no doubt I’m a complete shut in – I’ve only left the house on one occasion in the past 7 weeks and I’m not even beginning to feel stir crazy. Unfortunately, my boyfriend had to go back to work as an essential worker, so I’ve been hiding out in my family home for the past 4 weeks without seeing him (which has definitely been the worst part), however, we have been spending a lot more time gaming online together than usual.
“2020 is going to be the best year ever”, I say as I make a note of all the major plans I have for this year – the year I decide to step out of my comfort zone and do the things I’ve wanted to do for a while. Well, here we are 2 months later and this past week has been officially been the worst of my life.
January has been a strange month. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but it seems to have dragged despite my fresh optimism for the year ahead. I’ve had a pretty productive month aside from gaming too, mainly focusing on planning our trip to Japan in March and also trying my hand at drawing (for the first time since I was doing my GCSEs). I’ve also been playing my guitar every night for the past week and studying Japanese most nights throughout the month too. I’m enjoying this routine and plan to keep it up!
Welcome to my final post of 2019, and the final post of the decade! This is the last Monthly Summary of the year and as you’ll probably see from this post, I’ve been trying to finish a lot of games off to prepare for my fresh 2020 gaming quest! I’ve been looking forward to 2020 for such a long time now and I’m honestly excited to begin the year ahead. So let’s take a final look back at the events of December…
It’s the last day of November which means it’s time for another monthly Summary. It’s scary to think that there’s only one month left of 2019… I still have so many things on my list of things to do and far too many games left to play with only a few weeks remaining. December is going to be a just month!
October’s Monthly Summary is a day late this time due to the HORRORWE’EN post I co-wrote with WesleyWhale being posted yesterday. October was fairly busy for gaming despite not having a huge amount of free time and I managed to finish up the main games I started in September. October has mainly revolved around Hallowe’en though which I’m sure you’ll notice. Let’s take a look!
September has been a mixed month overall. In some ways, I feel like this month for gaming has probably been the best so far this year, I feel like I’ve played loads! On the other hand, some awful stuff has happened in my personal life which has brought the month’s overall positivity down.
