Too long

It has been too long since I last wrote here. I got distracted and neglected writing here.

What have I been up to? The school quarter ended a week ago. I took Monday of that week off to write my final paper. I also watched all of the E3 press conferences that streamed on Monday. Disappointing, but it was my first time watching it “live” so it was pretty interesting.

I spent the rest of that week sick. I worked from home and slept. And I played Oblivion.  I tend to only play MMOs, even though I really enjoy other games too. This generally happens because of my lack of time and because my hubby plays games soon after they are released, and I don’t like playing a game when I already know what is going to happen and how my decisions will impact the story.

But then years pass and a friend (the same friend every time) introduces me to a game that I absolutely have to play. And she’s always right. I finally played Portal a few weeks ago. I loved it. I finished it in one 4 hour sitting. Steam says that I’ve now played Oblivion for 61 hours. It is an amazing game.

Now I’m one week into my early summer break. Next quarter starts on July 12 and ends the week after PAX. I’m probably going to regret saying this but I’ll say it anyway: it should be an easy school quarter. I will be taking Fundamentals of Finance & Accounting. I already know a fair amount about finance and accounting from my work, so I’m hoping to be able to complete most of the work in the first couple weeks so that I can essentially have the whole quarter off.

Anyway, That’s what I’ve been up to. I’ll be writing more soon.

  1. For me it was the second time that I watched the E3-Press Conferences… It’s hard to say that the conferences were better in 2009… I think the introduction of Natal was a great surprise, so this year Microsoft was not as surprising as the year before. Nintendo was … almost the same as last year. A lot of salesfigures etc. bla bla… and a few upcoming games…

    The Kinect-Show was, for me, too much show… So i quit watching after 30 minutes…

    I also played Portal and it was a big big surprise for me. I never thought that it would be such a great game… Awesome! :).

    What other games did you play?

    1. I mostly play MMOs, but also enjoy RPGs and puzzle games when I can make the time. My husband can sometimes get me to play an FPS with him, but they’ve never been something I really enjoy. Right now my game of choice is EverQuest2, and I’m still enjoying Oblivion.
