The weather is weird. Yesterday it was 4° Celsius. Today we had up to 17° Celsius. I prefer it warmer after this seemingly endless winter but these kind of extreme jumps make me worry.
The day started different than expected but I managed to not become overwhelmed by changes of plans. I was at the gym directly as it openend, this was good and I could to my workout without any traffic.
Work is again in its calm phase. There is only stuff to do that is more on the upkeeping and planning side, nothing on the clock. Well, there are still some exams I have to put online but the people who have to give me some informations are still silent. Urgh.
I played a bit The Last of Us again. I am torn. I like the game, the story, the artwork. The game play is good but it seems to be not fitting to my abilities. It’s too fast and to confusing for me to follow and easy is still not easy enough. I wish there was some kind of god mode. Now I am in a situation that I cannot solve, having to deal with several zombies and dying every time I try to either kill, outrun or sneak around them. At least it doesn’t take ages for the game to reload after dying, this gives me raging fits in other games. Well, I’ll try again tomorrow.
I finally had some time to read again. Currently I am into Tress of the Emerald Sea by Brandon Sanderson. I am usually not that into anything with ships, sailing and pirates but so far I enjoy this book very much. It is the first one that was released with the kickstarter package. Next month the second of four books will be released, yay!
Short entry for yesterday
Had a relaxing early day with walkies and breakfast. Then some housework and stuff, at noon tea and carrot cake. Yum! Again walkies. Then I prepared the boardgame Spirit Island and decided to play a quick solo game to get back into the rules. After the last walkies for the day two friends arrived. My first game of Spirit Island with three players. It is not that different to two players but I like it when the spirits are helping each other out with cool cards. I was hungry and luckily our food arrived very quickly. We decided on Vietnamese, a restaurant I didn’t know but which had very good ratings in the app. I was not that eager for it because I eat Vietnamese quite often. However, so far all Vietnamese restaurants were excellent, so it’s always a safe choice. I had a bowl with peanuts, tofu, rice, mango, a tiny bit of curry-coconut sauce and veggies and it was superb. I also had tofu sticks fried in rice flakes (I thought they were smaller so I only managed to eat one) and sweet sticky rice balls filled with bean paste. Everything was so delicious! I want to go there again and eat at the restaurant some time soon. And it was nice not having to cook, I am currently not in the mood for that. All in all a good day.
I am still a bit tired from yesterday because I didn’t get that much sleep. So relaxing day with not much to do. After walkies and breakfast we drove to the shopping mall where my partner got new trousers and a leather jacket. I was strong and didn’t buy anything. I try not to spent that much this month, to have some extra money for my London trip and to fill up my „fun money fond“ again. So no bubble tea, no starbucks or waffle at the mall for me, I could resist.
After that we made a short rest and it was again time for walkies. Then pizza and an episode of The White Lotus. What a weird show. After that I went with Panka again and then played The Last of Us. I don’t know if I’ll finish this game. I didn’t get a headache this time and could sit for an hour on a cushion on the floor to play until it was to uncomfortable. (Still no idea about how I could play while sitting on my armchair which is in another room *sob*) Well, but a anyway, no physical problems for an hour. But all the buttons, shooting and stealthing and me standing and trying to decide which button I had to press and then getting shot. I’ll continue for now and see if I’ll warm up to the gameplay. Storywise I would really like to play this game.
Now two episodes of Watchmen and if I am still awake enough, then some reading. So far a good saturday.
