Monthly Summary: April 2020

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.

5 Games That Have Had The Biggest Impact On My Life

I was recently nominated by Megan, A Geeky Gal, to participate in another blogging tag – 5 Games That Have Had The Biggest Impact On My Life! In this post, I will talk about the games that have been the most significant in my life thus far. I wrote a post recently on the Twitter trend “Games To Get To Know Me” in which I picked up on this topic already, so this time around I’ll be talking more about how the game has impacted me personally rather than talking about the actual games themselves. You can take a look at my “Games To Get To Know Me” post here if you’d like to hear more about the games in question.

[11:11] Games To Get To Know Me

Following the new trending Twitter posts of 10 Games To Get To Know Me, I’ve noticed many people’s answers usually contain games that are similar genres or styles. After thinking long and hard about my answers, I realised that my gaming tastes are so widespread that my list could’ve been mistaken for being drawn straight out of a hat.

This list is going to be a little different to others I’ve come across as I’ve picked my favourite game from a different genre for each answer. Also, with this being a Skylar-Mei list, of course it’s going to feature 11 games! Since I appear to have missed the last [11:11] post, I’ll feature this as this final one in the series – sorry it’s late!

2020 Goals & 2019 Recap

It seems as though I’ve been waiting for 2020 to begin for a very long time. I wouldn’t say 2019 was a bad year, but other than some major changes to my job and completing 35 games, I can’t really say much else happened – especially from a blogging perspective.

I already know 2020 is going to be an exciting year. I have a huge trip to Japan planned with my boyfriend, so it already feels like the best year I’ll ever have! We’re also hoping to buy a house towards then end of the year, so 2020 is definitely looking promising!

Monthly Summary: December 2019

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…

Monthly Summary: August 2019

The month of August has been a little abnormal this time around. Although I feel like I’ve completed a fair few games, they have all been of the same genre – a genre I’m very fond of. With so many games on the horizon, I’m now left with a gaming schedule that pretty much consists entirely of new releases up until the end of the year which is totally new for me. Even though there’s not a great deal of stuff to share this month, here’s what I’ve been up to:
