It’s almost July, which means 2021 is just about halfway done, and yet here we still are in pandemic mode.

A quote

From the archives, this week in history:

My stuff:

  • Still sketching; this week, I really liked my rendition of The Human Torch:

  • Watching:
  • Gaming:
    • Finally finished the main game of Horizon Zero Dawn on PS4! I was thinking of taking a break from the game afterwards, since I’ve been playing it for like 2 months now, but a friend insisted I do the Frozen Wilds DLC (I assume because it’s good?!?) so I might do that and maybe also attempt a Platinum run?
    • Still playing Guilty Gear Strive during weeknights and generally being a scrub online. At least I’m using a second character now!
    • Regular Saturday group played some Root and Blood Rage this weekend.
    • Steam Sale is ongoing right now, but my discipline is holding and no damage so far, though I am considering Hades and some other small games
  • Reading: Still reading: Linchpin by Seth Godin.
  • Trivia team got third place in this week’s comedy-themed About Quiz and third place overall for the current season. Could be better!

This coming week:

  • New Loki, Rick and Morty, etc episodes.
  • Had a few more family errands and escort missions to do this week, and probably a few more in the weeks to come. Kind of disruptive to the daily rhythms, but it is what it is.
