Whoa!! I’ve hardly played any video games for the last week due to the fact that I took a break and did some other things for a change. I don’t normally watch streamers; however, this week has been the exception and did one all last weekend for a worthy charity organization or it seemed worthy in my opinion.
I do come from a long line of military folks and law enforcement people that I have very big respect for because without them doing their part, I probably wouldn’t be able to have the life that I have today. No, I didn’t serve in the military, however, I did support the effort in any way that I could.
I watch a 36-hour stream for “Operation Supply Drop” that was put on by Wargames on their World of Tanks. It was a rousing good time and definitely was international in its presentation as well as raising money for the support of all military folks. The money raised was going to people that were deployed away from their families as well as those making the transition back to civilian life. I know that it sounds silly to some, however, they setup people with a means to enjoy things on computers as well as giving them the ability to escape their current reality for a while. It is being used to help eliminate some of the mental stress and depression that some of the folks go through. If you want more information in regard to the organization, please give it a Goggle and enjoy some of the videos from the latest event.
I know that it is supposed to be the edgy people out there that are quitting tobacco and switching over to vaping. I haven’t had a cigarette for the better part of two years now and went from a 2 pack a day habit to zero with vaping, so, I’ve been doing some research on that as well. I know that there are probably some health issues with vaping and there are reasons not to do it, however, I would much rather have my house and clothes smell like my vapes than cigarette smoke. Found a shop here in Colorado that has met all of my needs – my needs are pretty simple since I don’t drive much these days – I needed a mail service that wouldn’t cost as much as the product and these folks fit the bill nicely.
Oh, this is also, Shark Week!!! I know I am the worst fan for watching anything and everything involving sharks. So, when I haven’t been watching streaming, I’ve been watching Sharks. I’ll admit that it really does make me homesick for the saltwater and I know that I will probably never set eyes on that much water again in my lifetime, I still love it. My spouse really isn’t into the water thing and sharks, so, we usually spend this week separated into different parts of the house. We’ve been married for so many years now that it doesn’t bother us to take a break from each other now and again.
I’ll probably get back into the routine with World of Warcraft this weekend and try to tell myself that I am not bored out of my gourd with Legion, yet. I still enjoy the game. However, this is the first time that I would much rather do something else for a while. I think you call it burnout after twelve years of playing almost daily. Not to mention, I’m just enjoying myself with other things for the time being in hopes that I can renew my interest in the game.
