*Since my family first got an NES, I’ve had a controller in my hands. Exploring new worlds, meeting new characters and experiencing stories… in some ways, I’ve just connected better with the world through games. However, it’s also very important to me to be present in my life, to improve myself, to go out and MEET the people I’ve connected with online and to expand my knowledge. I spend hours in games; how do I level myself up?
In this weekly series, I’ll chronicle how I’ve improved my “stats” with completely arbitrary scoring.*
+2 Intelligence – How did I make myself a little smarter? What did I learn?
Guitar lessons are going well. I learned part of a Bad Religion song. My fingers still hurt, but it feels like PROGRESS.
+2 Charisma – How was I less awkward or more beautiful?
I wore lipstick every day this week. It felt kind of weird, but it was a nice change. I blended red with a little gold powder for a shimmery Splatfest look.
+2 Strength – New workouts, breakthroughs, challenges.
I made it to the gym! I also hit a new Move streak record. Yeah for keeping things moving!
-2 Defense – Where did I consciously avoid or deflect negative energy?
I didn’t take care of my mental enough this week. There was a lot of fighting and sadness and general feelings of being drained. Next week I’m going on I schedule a crystal bed session for next week or something.
+1 Luck – Something good that happened this week
I got drinks with the co-manager of our Nintendo Switch Meet-Up group to scout some new potential hosting spots in Williamsburg. She moved back to the states from Australia not long ago and I’m SO glad to have her back!!
+3 Wealth – How did I save towards my goals?
Dog sitting biz this year continues to explode! Three new clients this week, which pushes me to over $4,000 TOTAL in that account and 40% of that was earned this year.
