As you may have noticed, I haven’t been on in a few days. There’s good news surrounding that, though: I got a job. Hooray.
Seriously, though, I am excited; I’m back in the public schools like I wanted, teaching 6th grade English. Sixth grade is a little young for me, admittedly, but I’ll adapt.
The catch there is that I’ve never had a full-time, 40 hour plus a week job and written on this blog. I’ve always been part time or had a cushy job like being a college professor. I’m not sure what the implications are, really; I can’t promise to get things written on particular days anymore because I can’t really know what those days will look like. I’m going to try to keep up the 3/day per week posting on M/W/F, but I just don’t know if I can. Bear with me during this transition.
In brief gaming news, I beat Guacamelee!, which was very, very satisfying. I didn’t like the very last boss fight, but everything else in the game was stellar. I strongly recommend you give it a try, and, as a cherry on top, it kept my attention all the way through so that I actually finished it.
Additionally, I beat deity level in a solo Civ game. I had beaten it a couple times with a partner, but solo games are tougher since you’re really on your own. It was a buzzer-beater, too. One Civ had all but one other beaten in a culture victory, and another had all but one of the spaceship parts completed. I won a diplomatic victory, which honestly are pretty easy victories, but on deity, I’ll take what I can get.
So bear with me while I figure out what I still have time for, and we’ll see.
Stubborn (and exhausted; I worked as much in the last 4 days as I would in 2 weeks at the college)
