I’ve been pretty quiet on here for the last few weeks. I’d like to say that I’ve been busy with work and other things, but that’s not altogether true. Sure, work did play a part in my lack of time (as it always seems to, lol). But there were a few bigger obstacles for me over the last few weeks.
This was probably the biggest issue. My wrist has been sore, primarily from too much texting. So I attempted to give it some time to heal. That meant almost no texting for a week (I wasn’t able to go quite the whole week – there were a few small instances where I did have to text to find someone). I’ve started texting a bit this week, and so far so good – my wrist is still a bit sore, but not too bad. I’m going to avoid having hour long conversations via text with people (I am guilty of that with one friend in particular). I’m hoping to start trying to strengthen my wrists a bit more to hopefully avoid this happening in the future (I am super scared that I’m going to permanently damage something which will make writing difficult in the future).
I don’t know what happened, but last week I turned my computer on to find ALL MY FILES MISSING! This included music, documents, and pictures. I have most things backed up, but I don’t know if I backed up the most recent version of Tears of the King so I was in a panic. Luckily I was able to restore my computer to a previous time point, which brought all of my missing files back. I’ve done several scans with several scanners and nothing has come up. I’ve also made sure I’ve backed up the most recent version of Tears of the King, which was the biggest relief. Everything seems fine now, so hopefully that was some weird fluke that disappeared when I restored the previous version of my system.
I started watching some Day Funday Mondays (it all started when my brother sent me this game), which really got me in the mood to play Starcraft 2. Unfortunately, my laptop appears to be unable to run Starcraft 2 vs Harder + computers, or with more than two people on the map (it lags so badly that it’s almost unplayable, especially when using the Legacy of the Void expansion). So as much as I want to be playing SC2, I apparently can’t. So I contented myself for watching a bunch more Funday Mondays. At least until…
A friend of mine sent me Stardew Valley as a gift over Steam. I have spent a ridiculous amount of time on that game since getting it two days ago. It’s actually been so bad that I’ve forbidden myself from playing it today (wish me luck! It started calling to me since getting up!) It’s a lot of fun, but super addicting; you’ve been warned!
Getting a Cold
Finally, I’ve also been feeling really under the weather for the last few days, which actually enabled Stardew Valley all the more – since I wasn’t feeling good, I was like “I’ll just play this new video game for a bit to relax.” I made it to work yesterday despite barely being able to talk when I got up, so that was a huge accomplishment. I now don’t have to go anywhere over the next few days, so I’m going to relax and hopefully get better (while not wasting too much time playing Stardew Valley).
So that’s what’s been going on with me for the last while. Hopefully I’ll be able to tear myself away from Stardew Valley and get back to working on Tears of the King or consolidating my notes for Faeriia soon!

Hope your wrists are better and not giving you trouble now.
