Sunday Stats

*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.*

+4 Intelligence – How did I make myself a little smarter? What did I learn?
My brother-in-law taught me how to play Zombie by The Cranberries on his guitar. Now I know my first song!

+1 Charisma – How was I less awkward or more beautiful?
My sister and I got our nails done on Friday before our brother’s wedding. Ignore my sudden stigmata. I went with a Barbie pink, inspired by the Tiny Shoulders documentary on Hulu.

+2 Strength – New workouts, breakthroughs, challenges.
I mixed up the gym this week with stair walking at work. 9 floors is no joke. I’ve even inspired some coworkers to make the climb with me.

+3 Defense – Where did I consciously avoid or deflect negative energy?
On Wednesday I booked a crystal bed session at modrn sanctuary. This time I chose Third Eye frequencies and went into a meditation so deep, I felt like I left my body. I don’t know if I went into a past life or a future one. I don’t remember much of the visualizations now, but when the session was up, I felt my energy come crashing back into my body. I took a sharp gasping breath as if I hadn’t been breathing at all for the 45 minute session! It was strange but the balance I felt when I came back made me feel like a new person.

+1 Luck – Something good that happened this week.
I picked up a couple of crowlers at Victory Brewing, but the server filled one with the wrong beer so I got a third corrected crowler for free!

-3 Wealth – How did I save towards my goals?
I booked my E3 trip for a week in Cali. First I fly into San Jose for two nights then I meet Glux in LA! It’s going to be an awesome trip, but it’s costing me. I hope these sapphire reserve points really do add up fast! It was amazing that my $300 annual travel credit was applied immediately though!

How did YOU level up this week?
