Life Happenings, Vol. 5: Important Dates and Incompetent Digestive Systems

 

Evening all.

 

I haven’t been posting as much as I’d like recently. Nor have my recent posts been up to my definition of “snuff.” There’s a couple reasons for this. A lot happens in early July for the Cornelius household. July 4th is a reason to get together with friends, overeat, and drink copious amounts of beer. July 9th is my birthday. July 11th is our anniversary (yes, it was crazy to have my birthday and our wedding a mere two days apart – I acknowledge this now). On top of all of these important dates have been worsening abdominal/digestive issues (I had my gallbladder out three years ago – I recommend keeping it as long as you can). They started in late June and have gotten steadily worse, thanks to my not wanting to recognize their existence. When I’m sick, I’m cranky/neurotic, and when I’m cranky/neurotic, I’m worthless when it comes to writing or getting any worthwhile work done. I don’t plan to stop the reviews, but there may be longer gaps between them than there was before. This is but one of many attempts to thwart the quest over the past three years. It will fail, just as the others have.

 

Cheers,

Dylan

  • Keep up the good fight! I hadn’t noticed any lag or decrease in quality, so you’re either fooled me or filled yourself into thinking you aren’t up to snuff… Thanks for the entertainment through nostalgia and good recommends for games to give another look at… Your quest commitment amazes me. Press on, but not at the expense of being able to enjoy life.

    • swyped this out on my phone without proof-reading, and without fail there are some errors… I’ll try again:

  • Man you’re doing great! I enjoy reading these after a long day at the office. It brings me back to reality. An 8 bit reality at that! I personally will have a toast in your honor once the quest is complete. Cheers!

  • Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words.

  • As someone who also A.) suffers from serious digestive issues, B.) reviews games, and C.) is neurotic all the time – I can confidently say I feel your pain. Just remember, Super Mario Bros. is on the horizon. (And then Swamp Thing not long after – mwahaha!)

  • Amen and amen. All the best regarding health and progress and video games, et cetera.

  • @Matthew + Josh: Thanks gents. I’m feeling better already, though it’s not because I’m playing good games, I can tell you that.

  • @Anonymous: Thank you! That means a lot.
