Avoiding Arena

Aug 11, 2017 | | Say something

Hearthstone Arena looks like trash so I’m not going to bother with it. All I really learned this week is that if I spent all night fucking around with my friend IRL, I don’t get enough rest and it spoils my ability to do anything for the rest of the week. I need to be […more]

Day’s Report – August 7, 2017

Aug 8, 2017 | | Say something

I think I’ll just skip the Days’ Reports for the weekends. Most of the time is spent at work listening to podcasts, anyway. 20:32 – 23:52 = Asleep I stayed in bed for about 8 minutes after my alarm. It took me that long to convince myself to not abandon my self-imposed schedule I hadn’t […more]

Streaming More

When Do You Stream? The most common things you will see as advice on Reddit about getting viewers: talk to yourself a lot be involved in other communities have a schedule I do the first naturally, and the second as a form of procrastinating from streaming myself. I think about the third a lot. I […more]

Day’s Report – August 4, 2017

Aug 5, 2017 | | Say something

Starting on Thursday Night 22:22 = Very Ready? I decided around 20:00 that I would definitely stream, despite completely missing my usual Thursday long-stream. Using a text message I sent to a friend as a guideline, 20:18 would be the most accurate estimate as to when I started to mentally prepare. The lights are not on yet, […more]

Un’Goro Notes

Aug 3, 2017 | | Say something

How to Win? Break it down to two questions: How do I defend against aggression? How am I countering control? (Mages mostly.) At a primal level, the majority of Hearthstone winning is smacking face. At a specifically-arena level, the majority of matchups you have will be against Mage. Aggression Defenses Also being aggressive Spells Ping […more]

Day’s Report – July 29, 2017

Jul 30, 2017 | | Say something

I think the hardest part about staying awake for 24 hours is that I don’t have a convenient “this is when my day started” time on my phone. I track my sleep habits on my phone, that’s why those time stamps are so much more accurate. 07:00-20:00 = Work My job is pretty low-key, particularly […more]

My Favorite Podcasts – Distilling

Jul 30, 2017 | | Say something

I have two, 12-hour-long, security shifts every week. I’ve only had three days off from these shifts in the past year. It’s a safe constant in my weekly life. Halfway through that first year I bought my first iPhone (an SE, the baby one, in rose gold.) I’ve barely enjoyed podcasts before this because the android […more]

Pass Podcasts

No sorting or ranking involved here. I’m not going to “not listen to this shit even more.” Who Killed Elsie Frost? Confusing series of introductions. One guy introduces the other guy who introduces a recording? Elsie sounds like someone I could care about, but the casters are not. Unlike the Simmons podcast, the case itself has […more]

Ummm Podcasts

Jul 30, 2017 | | Say something

These are podcasts which seemed interesting but for whatever reason, I can’t have them on the Keep list. Lore I didn’t have my headphones in as I listened to this, so I feel like what I missed out on was my own fault. The premise and delivery style align with my desires though, so I […more]
