So what has been going on with me lately? Movie viewing is a little slow of late…you’ll have noticed only the occasional review. Well, we’re in the middle of gaming season in the run up to Christmas, and I’ve managed to get hold of a few titles. These are Watchdogs 2, Gears of War 4 and I’m still ploughing through Mafia 3 … and then there’s also Recore – a game I’m not sure at this stage if I’ll go back to. That’s not to mention the various games I’ve still yet to play or get hold of, namely Battlefield 1 and Dishonoured 2. It’s a lot to have on one’s plate and well, games aren’t that short these days…with many being huge open world fairs that last me months.
In other more personal news, I’m pretty busy in work and well, the day to day grind can get stressful occasionally, but I’m getting by in my own way. With my birthday recently it’s given me a mental kick up the arse to be more positive, not dwell on the past and try and be in a better mood more often and for longer periods. I think I do struggle with depression, and can really let it take a grip of me sometimes … but I can’t let it and have to fight against it the best I can.
In recent weeks I’ve realised too that I’m a bit addicted to my favourite band, Garbage and I understand more than anyone this can get a tiresome and over-familiar subject to family and friends. However I actually do enjoy everything about them … listening to their music, following their escapades on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook and just enjoying the whole journey with them. It’s a hobby for me and more than just an interest in their music, and has become a big part of my life. I suppose meeting them back in June was the ultimate and has only gone towards making me feel closer to them as a fan. I suppose I shouldn’t really care what others think, should I?
Also, my annual Top Ten Movies of the year is of course on the horizon and I’ve tried my best to watch so many movies, especially some of the real big-hitters of the year. As always, it’s going to be fun compiling a Top Ten and I think It’ll be interesting to see what I make my number 1. I also look forward to reading other blogger’s top tens when the time comes.
Well that’s all from me for now.
