*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.*
+5 Intelligence – How did I make myself a little smarter? What did I learn?
I’ve been researching music lessons because I think an irl appointment will make me more accountable to my guitar learning process.
+2 Charisma – How was I less awkward or more beautiful?
Red eye mystery solved! My contacts were scratching my allergy swollen eyes. I’m getting new contacts after a week of dripping nasty gelatinous steroid drops in my eyeballs.
+1 Strength – New workouts, breakthroughs, challenges.
I got myself a couple of 3 lb free weights and use them to do some arm toning moves while I binge watch Jane the Virgin. +1 for multitasking!
+2 Defense – Where did I consciously avoid or deflect negative energy?
When I was 16, I didn’t really know what I was doing. But I cast a love spell… at it took 17 years to work, but here I am getting ready to marry the subject of that spell. To clear the air (and energy) and make sure this moves forward on his own free will (or doesn’t move forward at all), I started a love unbinding spell. The next phase of the spell will be on the New Moon this week.
+1 Luck – Something good that happened this week.
Working remote was a nice treat this week. But my big highlight was finally earning my Beast Growler as part of the Coney Island Brewery Mug Club! I filled it on the 4th of July with Coney Island Ale.
+3 Wealth – How did I save towards my goals?
Literally, plus 3. I had three dogs this week! Well, the goofy ham with his tongue hanging out is my Muldoon, but still! Holiday rates + 2 clients = a big bang in my bank account!
