RogueLibrarian's Creed: Odyssey


RogueLibrarian

Recommended Posts

Friends, I've been playing way too much Assassin's Creed Odyssey this month. My Xbox's disc drive is on its last legs, and I'm going to send it off for repair just before we travel for Xmas break, and that breather will probably be good for my brain.

Super simple this month! I'm just trying to keep some momentum going up to the holidays and not lose focus.

 

Workouts

  • 3/week. Probably karate class, kickboxing class, and one solo.

 

Diet

  • One vegetable-centric meal prep per week.
  • Keep your damn hands off the vending machine snacks.

 

Life/other

  • Write some every week.

 

Notes:

 

Work is slowing way down for the end of the semester. I should be able to get work breaks to visit the gym with no problem, if I keep my momentum and discipline together.

 

I've got 3+ weeks of work, then two weeks off that'll include a trip to Florida to visit our moms. I usually do a Zombies Run mission barefoot on the beach and a visit to Mom's YMCA gym once per visit.

 

I'm trying to restart my fiction writing motor. I'm giving myself the barest minimum writing goal this month to dip my toes in. Some outlining. A scene. Whatever. Any good faith effort counts.

 

Karate class remains somewhat intimidating but is getting more fun as I get a little confidence. I'm going tonight.

Didn't it just come out? Pretty sure it can't be *too* much play at this point. :) But it does sound like a lovely break coming up.

Your point being?

 

Well, it certainly feels like a lot. Certainly over our long weekend there were a couple of marathon sessions. :)

Realizing today that I'm really going to miss the option to take an afternoon walk on non-gym days until the weather warms up again. I have it lucky down here in the south in that we don't get very cold for very long, but still I'm already chafing a bit being indoors all day.

Workouts: 1/3 karate class done

 

Food: 1/1 had a big-ass salad Monday/Tuesday to recuperate from Thanksgiving leftovers. Kept my damn hands off the vending machines so far. Made a thing in the slow cooker that was supposed to be minestrone, but I'm now calling "pasta and vegetables" since it's not at all like soup in the finished product.

 

Writing: 0/1 so far. Putting it on my calendar so I don't forget.

 

Soooo apparently I'm having my first belt test in about three weeks. I wasn't planning to test this time around, since I'm still, you know, learning to move and stand right, but the instructor told me and my fellow white belt friend last night that he wants us to test and thinks we'll be ready. We are both skeptical. I looked at her as we were packing up after class and asked, "Whattaya think?" She said "I ... guess I'm gonna try?" I said, "You know, if you think about it, there is absolutely nothing at stake here. If we don't pass, we show up for class again and test next time."

 

So over lunch break today, I'm going to write out my test forms in some way I can carry on my phone, and on my gym break today I'm going to try to get into the martial arts room and spend some time practicing. I need to make this a weekly goal, probably.

My two moods. (Okay - not entirely accurate but I couldn't resist.)

 

I mean, you know which one I chose.

Afternoon update

 

1. Spent my gym break alternately drilling my gold belt forms, and whaling on a heavy bag to loosen up in between. By the end of the session I at least had all the moves in my head, even if I can't execute perfectly every time, so I think maybe I can do this. Workouts 2/3, might possibly hit 4/3 this week.

 

2. Oh shit, they just emailed and testing is on the 14th, not the 18th.

60 hours is pretty average on what most people will spend on long games like that, I think some gamers take a while to get there because they play a few games at once.

Suddenly I'm quite keen to give the game a try...

 

And perhaps more relevant to me than to you, this is the MOST BISEXUAL game I have ever played. It literally does not care whether you're playing Kassandra (f) or Alexios (m), you can bonk whomever your smutty little Assassin heart/pants desire and the NPCs are all just down for whatever. I feel very seen, is that what you young people say?

Well statistically I’ve been mostly straight but I identify as “not picky” when it comes to gender, so basically give me all the bonking. :D 

 

I don’t know about this young people thing, ask @Asa Pond haha. Imma spend my Friday reading books and drinking wine and go to bed early and not be cool.

I'm stealing this description even if lately my sexuality has been Ianto Jones.

El. Oh. El. I believe that is a thing the young people say. But that Friday night sounds like my every night so...

 

"Just @ me next time" is my current fave.
