Graduation at CSCC was yesterday. I watched via the live stream, and it was nice to see nearly 1400 students receive their diplomas.  Students have finished their exams and we’re now heading into semester break. One week of work, and then a week off for the holidays.

Heading to a Festivus party this evening with friends. I’ve finally gotten all my Christmas presents taken care of, and my first convention ticket for 2019 taken care of for my own present. Looking forward to seeing my family this holiday season.

Started our new Mage School campaign on Tuesday, and finalizing my character for the holiday marathon. Still working on City of Brass, about 2/3 of the way through. I still have long waitlists on all my other library books.

December Thoughts December 8, 2018

Well, it’s definitely winter down here in Ohio. Temperatures have plummeted, and frost and snow keep covering the cars and ground. Nothing serious, yet, but just enough to remind us of the season.

At work, I’ve finished the Guided Interviews of my Usability Study, and next week I try to tempt random volunteers for a card sort exercise. It’ll be finals week, so I don’t know if I’ll get any, but it’s worth a try. Then we have a month-long break between semesters, including an entire week+ off between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. That will be awesome, first time ever, for me. Have already started planning family visits and gaming marathons.

Along the gaming lines, I’ve had a spectacular few weeks, having successfully completed our Marathon and finished off two campaigns. All by defeating super-powerful entities that people/cultists/dragons were trying to bring in/rise up/free to take over the world. Huzzah!

On the reading front, I’m still making my way through City of Brass, but I have quite a few thing waiting in the wings, thanks to reading Publisher’s Weekly at work. I’m still trying to make my way through Campaign 1 of Critical Role, and have made it through Episode 47 so far.

On the writing front, I’ve started writing holiday letters to people, typing up my marathon notes as though being told by the character I played, and an ever-growing backstory for my next marathon character. I’ll have another character backstory to write on Tuesday, as well. I’m still journaling, and pondering the next few scenes for my NaNo piece, too.
