WWW Wednesday | 11th September 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

I’m continuing to have quite a difficult time at the moment as my depression has taken a bit of a nosedive, likely in response to stress around my dissertation which I’ve had to get an extension for. However, I’ve actually been able to use this time to seek solace in books rather than sitting in a massive blanket puddle not doing anything and I’ve been able to get a lot of reading done this week which is great!

WWW Wednesday | 26th June 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

It’s been a whole 3 weeks since my last WWW Wednesday and I’ve missed updating you all on the state of my reading and playing. June has been a little bit of a hell month for me as my partner has had a difficult time with surgery (pre-op and post-op) which has made things quite stressful and chaotic for me as well. Although I’ve actually managed to do a lot of reading and playing (escapism is a THING for a me right now), I haven’t been able to keep up with reviews, posts or any actual work.

Things are, hopefully, starting to settle down and I’ve been looking forward to posting up my WWW Wednesday today!

WWW Wednesday + Updates | 21st February 2019

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:

What are you currently reading/playing?
What did you recently finish reading/playing?
What do you think you’ll read/play next?

So… I know it’s a day late and I haven’t posted a WWW Wednesday 2 weeks but I finally have a spare moment to actually do a quick post to update you all on what I’m getting up to at the moment reading wise. I’ve also expanded the question out to include what I’m playing video games, as I’m finding that I’m spending more time playing games than reading at the moment in an attempt to wind down with my partner, and some weeks I have no book updates but more game updates!

Games I Want to Play in 2019

Games I Want to Play in 2019

As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, I’m a gamer as well as a reader! However, my gaming often gets put aside for reading so one of my goals for this year was not only to play more video games but also blog more about video games. Although I already write articles for Sidequest, a great website which focuses on the unconventional in gaming and centers marginalized voices, I want to share more about gaming here on my blog as well. Video games have always been such a huge part of my life, so much so that I am (hopefully) doing a PhD about them, and so I’m aiming to make a lot more time for them in 2019.

Inspired by Becca and Destiny‘s posts, I thought it would be cool to kick off my video game blogging and the year with a little list of the backlist and new release games I’m looking forward to playing in 2019. Obviously this isn’t the entire list because I don’t want to keep you here all day, so if you’re curious ask in the comments.

Wrap Up | October

Wrap Up | October

September turned out to be a fairly successful month for me. My blogging frequently is increasing, at a snail’s pace but it’s something, but the biggest thing to come out of September was finally getting my result’s for my dissertation and degree! After a long and very painful 28 days, I found out I got a 1st overall for my degree and over 75% for my dissertation. After all the shit that has happened throughout the 3.5 years of my degree, it honestly feels like the best trophy to get a 1st AND survive being at university. I still can’t quite believe it, and I definitely can’t believe that it’s already the 1st day of October! Time flies by too fast, but I like to at least begin the month with a vague outline of what I might be getting up to.
