Guardian Games in Season of the Bounties: Grindy Grind Grind Grind

This season in Destiny 2 has turned into a bounty grind that has led many players to playing fatigue, ie getting bored out of their minds while playing this repetitive BS. I’m no stranger to this, as I took a break during S9 due the grind in S8 (Randy’s, Exit Strategy, etc).

It’s actually become bad enough for Bungie to address the situation in their TWAB. They are planning on changing from a seasonal model to something more akin with how the game was when Forsaken came out. I couldn’t be happier. But will it be enough? The plans are for Y4, and that’s still far away.

Charizard VMAX Starter Box Set (JP)

I made the mistake of getting into Pokémon Trading Cards. It all started innocently enough.

Gee, I need new games for my private classes. All the kids are mad about Pokémon. I wonder if younger kids can play.

After some quick market research, which basically involved me asking my grade 6 students if their younger siblings could play, it was a foregone conclusion that I would get a few decks for my classes.

Destiny 2 S10: Iron Banner & Point of the Stag? Pointless Stag?

Season 10’s first Iron Banner launched on last Tuesday’s reset, the 24th of March, and it will feature the only ritual weapon of season of the worthy. The bad news is that it’s a bow. The good news is that like every Iron Banner, there are plenty of pinnacle drops available, and they’re quite easy to complete.

Starbucks Japan Sakura Collection

On a recent visit to a Starbucks, I eventually looked up at the product displays. This was after I had ordered and finally looked up, after having seen some spring festival cards on display.

Star Trek: Picard S01E01-02 (CBS)

To say that I had been anticipating the new ST:P would have been an understatement. There has been a Star Trek series on TV, but I have to say that I haven’t been a fan of Michael Burnham for some time. The whole concept of ST: Discovery was almost anathema because of the fact that they are retconning Star Trek.

Aliens

After having enjoyed both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, naturally Netflix decided that I should watch more Alien movies. I remember fondly watching Aliens and the glee with which my mother enjoyed watching this movie, repeatedly. It’s probably one of the many reasons why watching this movie once again, felt so familiar.

Five Metal Shop’s Calendar Project 2020 For Bujo & Journaling

This week, when it came time to figure out which notebooks I would use for journaling and planning, I came upon a wrapped calendar from Five Metal Shop. It was wrapped in a custom Tyvek bag. I looked at the sample and found it very interesting. The paper was like tracing paper, making the 366p calendar not very thick.

Here’s to 2020 in a Cyberpunky Way

Happy New Year. Let’s just hope 2020 isn’t as dark as 2019 or/and not as dark as Cyberpunk 2020. Getting to my private class from work at 6pm on the 31st took an extra 30 minutes and this was heading out of the city. I can’t imagine how bad traffic and public transportation must have been like. It sounded bad already at around 4pm. We just ate a shitload of snacks and had some pink champagne.

Star Wars Marathon

I’m rewatching episodes 1 to 6 to hopefully erase the terribleness of the latest, recently completed trilogy. To think that ep 1 is fairly good compared to Rise of the Skywalker lmao. Rise of the Skywalker? WTF. Don’t even get me started. Angry Joe’s 2h28 rant on it was cathartic in a way.
