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.

 

I'm definitely a "one game at a time" guy, and usually I get bored after half that time. Odyssey is keeping me engaged and I think I have a long way to go in the main story yet.

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 

 

VALID, ALL VALID

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.

 

Me too, usually minus even the wine. I'm so boring!

Oh, yes. I am much more inclined to order this game now. I actually have played 0 AC games before, but anything goes Greek shenanigans may be the thing that tips the scale.

Weekend report --

 

Kickboxing class this morning, workouts 3/3. I remind myself periodically during tough KB classes that when I first started, I could barely make it through class and often had to go home and take a nap afterward.

 

Just finished cooking stir-fry veg with tofu and rice for tomorrow's lunch.

 

I'm going to do a little bit of writing so I can check that one off today.

Setback: I woke up at 3am hot/cold and aching, thinking I was coming down with a virus. Took a sick day and I have spent the day napping in front of the TV. I think I'll be up and on my feet again by tomorrow.

Monday update!

 

Went to the martial arts room for a workout, heavy bag and practicing my belt test. This is likely to be my routine for the next two weeks (test is a week from Friday). There were several macho beefy dudes doing boxing practice in the martial arts room, but I staked out a small corner with my bag. I enjoyed seeing them hug it out after sparring. (I had been thinking of setting a numerical goal for "practice for belt test," but I'm nervous enough about it that I feel pretty motivated, so I think I'm good there.)

 

There has been a boil water advisory in effect for the last couple of days, and I didn't think about the impact on my workout; even the filtered water fountains were taped over. Toughed it out and got a canned club soda after getting back to my desk. omg so thirsty

 

Presently brainstorming something healthy to throw into the slow cooker when I get home.

 

Workouts 1/3

Wait boil water advisory, why? I thought that only happened in 3rd world countries. :P 

 

It was just for like a day and a half -- some kind of system failure? Very unusual.

 

I mean, you *do* know that my country is sort of on the verge of collapse, though, so this sort of infrastructure catastrophe is going to become pretty common.

Why is this so accurate though.

 

And Atlanta is just being proactive - giving practice runs so that their citizens are prepared for the inevitable. ;)

Update: Wrote a *little* bit over lunch break. Like, a few lines of outlining, identified some scenes and plot points that need to appear. But I did say that small steps counted on this goal, so I'm counting it.

Karate class done.

  • Got the nod on my run-through of my forms for my belt test, but there are some self-defense moves on the test that I didn't get the word about until tonight. There is a special class to drill those on Sunday afternoon, though, and I at least got a picture of the written notes so I can try to practice them or at least commit them a little bit better to memory before then.
  • Got my karate uniform. IT'S BLACK. I'm very happy about that.

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?

YAS I would like to join the list of people you have convinced to play this game.

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."

 

I remember being SO SCARED of tests, but like, I assume the teacher knows what's up.  You're gonna be awesome!

We've made it to Friday, assassins.

I've got time blocked off for a gym workout/practice session. Brought my karate uniform since they advised us noobs to wear it during practice to get used to it before the test. Tomorrow is kickboxing class, and Sunday afternoon is a test prep clinic; my understanding is they'll focus on the self-defense moves ("one-steps") that I'm still slightly shaky on.

 

Looking through the martial arts related NFA quests, because I'm all about the XP. Any inspiration for this Monk quest? "Choose a motto or saying to focus on during training for the next week. To complete this quest, choose a motto to focus on during training for the next week. Take notes about any changes/ideas this focused training gives you!" Favorite training mottos, anyone?

The things I remind myself of most often while training:

  1. I'm doing this for fun
  2. I'm the only reason I'm here
  3. Squeeze your butt

Those don't seem very helpful as training mottos for martial arts, hahaha.
