Video Game Binge

Oh, hi there... I didn't notice you. In fact, I forgot what day of the week it is. I've been on a video game binge lately. It was The Other Half's birthday on Friday and part of his present was video games all weekend until one of us passed out. We played Divinity, Star Wars, Rocket League-- wait, what's that? You've never heard of Rocket League? Well if you ever wanted to play futuristic soccer with turbo boosted cars in low gravity, this is your game:

It sounds silly, but it's stupid-fun and difficult to master. There was also some Divinity: Original Sin...

...and last, but not least, Star Wars: The Old Republic. I played 10 hours of SWTOR on Saturday and don't regret a minute of it. I love my character "Mynx Mocha". SWTOR just released the Togruta race and I was all over it. We leveled up to 23, hit the dance club, and disarmed a bomb-- our dog was very impressed. (We took another break for a walk right afterwards).

Other than that I've been pretty busy with work, remembering to eat, and making an effort to go out with friends and maintain a healthy, goofy social life (I'm the chile pepper on top there). 

I have to say, life's pretty good right now. I'm appreciating happiness where I can and rolling with the punches. I feel like I'm finally pulling out of the crushing sadness that's plagued me for the past few months. I'm painting again and I just bought a few tools that I've needed to replace after losing some in the move/flood-- new needle files, a range of sand paper, brass rods for pinning (so I don't use staples), and some wire clippers. 

After playing all this Star Wars, I had the idea of white pants stuck in my head-- I also needed to test out white-to-light beige color combination before I painted it on Miss Carla McCarthy. I assembled this Infinity miniature and ran a few tests of white options. I also remembered how stupid it is to try and paint white over black primer (trust me, it takes too many layers!). I'm looking forward to trying out some of my new purchases. In the meantime, I better save enough time tonight for painting-- I'm long overdue!
