*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.*
+1 Intelligence – How did I make myself a little smarter? What did I learn?
Learning an instrument is hard. I’m making slow, slow progress. My goal for next week is to learn one song so I have something to motivate me through boring scales and exercises.
+2 Charisma – How was I less awkward or more beautiful?
The Skeevil Dead are BACK, baby! I’m putting together a new team to take to Nationals this year. Some familiar, some new. It’s going to be a strong summer league!
+2 Strength – New workouts, breakthroughs, challenges.
I set a 22 day Move record! Let’s see if I can hit a whole month!
+1 Defense – Where did I consciously avoid or deflect negative energy?
TWO Crystal Bed sessions coming up! I also switched therapists on TalkSpace and got a video session on the books. Hopefully this one goes better.
+1 Luck – Something good that happened this week
Free breakfast at work on Monday! Always a good way to start the week.
+2 Wealth – How did I save towards my goals?
I got approved for a Chase Sapphire Reserve card. I get $300 in travel credits every year, access to VIP lounges at the airports and 3x the points on travel and dining. I’m just waiting for it to come so I can be smart about booking my flight and hotel. Time to make my trips work for ME.
