Four in February

I like the idea of ‘Four in February’. Complete four video games during the 2nd month of the year. It sounds like a fun challenge, and should get me 25% closer to my goals for 2013.

The games I’ll aim to complete are:
Pokémon Black Version 2
LEGO Lord of the Rings
Half Life 1
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion (Only the main quest, which I’ve never managed to complete without being distracted!)

None of these will be completed to 100%, rather just the main bulk of the story done and the credits rolling; this is now how I judge a game complete. I don’t have enough spare time to 100% anything any more…


Semester Two

Exams are over, lectures start again on Monday. What am I going to do differently this term? I’m going to study… That is, I’m going to spend at least an hour a night going over my notes. Uploading them to Google Drive. Making sure I understand them. Making sure they’ll make sense in three months time. This lot of exams has been a big shock from what I’ve been used to at college for my ND and HND. Revision? Wow, that was a lot harder than I remembered it being five years ago.

This is a behaviour that I need to change as soon as possible, to give myself the best chance at better exam results in the Summer. Going to the gym (that I’ve already paid for!) is going to be another focus of this semester. We went yesterday, and are currently planning to go most mornings (I have 4/5 9am starts… Welcome to the real world) to make the most of each day and start to feel better about myself. We’ll see how it goes!

Twenty Thirteen

I don’t make ‘New Years’ resolutions, because I never stick to them. This year I might actually try… Following on from a previous post for Tupcast about how I have so many games that I don’t play; I have decided to create a plan for 2013. That is, I’m going to complete at least 12 games in the next 12 months and the same number of books before December 31st 2013.

Games that I am planning to play currently include Skyrim, (finally getting around to) Half Life 1 and 2, Magical Starsign, and maybe a few Dragon Quest & Professor Layton games. Bookwise, I’m going to start with ‘Life of Pi’ which has been on sale for 20p for Kindle and then probably move back to the Game of Thrones series next to read a few of those. The week after Christmas I finally got around to watching the three Lord of the Rings movies back to back before going to see The Hobbit which was brilliant except the IMAX failed midway through the film rendering us listening to a radio play for a few minutes until they fixed the projector

You shall not pass

As for other life goals, I actually plan to visit the gym this semester since I’ve paid for it and never actually been. Yeah, embarrassing. I know. Studying too, lots and lots of studying this term. Exams start next week… Back to revision. I’ll be sure to keep my non existent readers updated 😉 This will likely be it for updates until exam season is over (Not that there were many updates recently anyway…)
