I'm starting ''The Wheel of Time'' on audible.

why??????

don't pay for books when you can get them for free at the library...

I have too. I listen to it while I'm at work. I never have the time to pick up an actual book.

Also I just started Becky Chambers' second book "A Closed and Common Orbit".  If it's anywhere as good as the first one (The Long Way to a Small and Angry Planet) I'm in for a treat.  The third book in the series is due out in July.

I dont have a choice if I wanted to read a book. I listen to audible while I work.

Public library has e-audiobooks too

Rode my book bike in the Pride Parade yesterday.  Anyone who could go through 40 minutes of that much positive energy and not come out with a smile has a heart of stone.

I've been going kayaking every week for the last 4 weeks.   It hasn't disappointed.

Still farting around in Tales of Vesperia.  Currently on the Heracles destroying overmatched baddies on my way to an almost certainly overpowered Alexei.

nothing wrong with x4 or x5. But all that really means is that collection 1 has four good games and 2 has one.  The wheels fell off after 5.

went golfing this morning.  I stink but I had a lot of fun.  One of the guys in my group played poorly and was furious about it. Throwing clubs and swearing and acting like a tool.  I never understood why people pay $30 a pop so they can be angry for 3 hours. Just enjoy that you're outside with your friends on a beautiful day.

Reading the Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers.  It's a fantastic Sci-Fi novel by someone who is completely in love with Science Fiction and space travel. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is in to that genre. My only real complaint is that her male ship captain WAY overthinks social interaction and conversation in a manner that is generally very atypical of someone in his position/with his life experiences. But I hear that women have been dealing with those sort of mischaracterizations from male authors forever, so I guess it's a small price to pay for what has so far been a tremendously enjoyable novel.

BoF IV : That dungeon where you have to put apples on stumps to lure out the elephant/apteryx creature to chase it around narrow trap-filled ramps while constantly being attacked by the same 3 annoying enemy types?
... REALLY don't like that dungeon.

Enjoying the game otherwise.

BoF IV is best BoF, stick with it.  The payoff is one of the most gut wrenching scenes in the history of JRPGs. I literal teared up. 


My own play log: Tales of Vesperia is the 2nd best Tales game after Eternia and it's no one's fault but my own that I waited so long to get this deep into it. 
Darkest Dungeon is perfect for Switch (and handhelds in general) because it's so easy to pick it up, play one dungeon and then go do other things.

Yep I havenít gotten around to bebop yet.

Also not sure how my age relates to this at all, but ok.

Most people who are in their 30's now didn't get around to seeing things like future boy conan or lupin the 3rd until much later.  We tend to check out contemporary things first before going back for the classics. So I assumed it'd be the same with people younger.  But mostly, holy shit Cowboy Bebop is 21 years old.

You haven't.... watched.... Cowboy Bebop...??  O_______O

pretty sure he's only c. 20 years old.  so there is a very real possibility Cowboy Bebop came out before he was born.

Had a chance to exchange a bunch of old 360 games for this last night.  Glad I went with the Switch port of Skyrim instead.

I'm not really glad about it

Its different from a housing bubble. You can walk away from a bad mortage, you can't walk away from student loan debt. So the banks are eventually gonna get paid.


True.  Even if you declare bankruptcy, student loan debt does not get forgiven and you still have to pay the piper.  Makes no dagnab sense.

Or go into public service.  Pay your loans for 10 years and then (usually) the rest is forgiven.  It's a great way to subsidize lower paying jobs where you have to get expensive degrees to be qualified.

There's a recently abandoned Subway restaurant near my apartment. I walk by it on the way home. Almost every single day for the last two weeks or so, there's been this goose standing outside, staring in through the glass front door. Not even acting aggressive or defending something. Just... staring.

This is why (even with Discord hoppin like it is) we should all still check the forums.  You're a treasure Mesh.

I have been playing Alundra on my Vita a half hour at a time (on my lunch) for a month and am not even halfway through.  It's a good thing it's not terrible and the puzzles are engaging or I would've moved on by now.
