Hi! And welcome back to me!
I've been away for a while, it's been vacation time, you see. But I'll get to that in a bit. I just want to start of by addressing one particular thing, my writers block. Ever since I came home I haven't been able to collect my thoughts on paper. It's been pretty depressing and a bit stressful, but I hope to work through it and be back to posting content here soon. The last article I posted wasn't really good material, it was more for me to actually get the plug out to begin with, but that is neither here nor there.
I did play a fair few games during my vacation, since that seemed like the prudent thing to do, in the middle of summer no less. So there are some games I do want to talk about, but nothing has yet stuck in my head. See, one issue I'm striking is the fact that I'm really trying to make this a positive place. I spend so much time in my day-to-day life being negative, so I figured that I should stride to keep this place as positive as possible. This is because of two specific points, one is that it might get me to be a more positive person in general, and the second point is that positive coverage on the internet is like rarer than gold in Lapland. But enough of all of this, onto the holiday show and tell!
Me and my very good friend Neil went on a trip to Barcelona during our vacation. Both of our lives will be drastically changed in the coming months, so we figured that we should at least have one last trip with just us as we are now. And a trip it was! A warm, sweaty, hot and wonderful trip. See, I'm pure-bred Scandinavian. It was cold when I was born, it's probably be cold when I die. And that is the way I like it. During the trip, we had the fortune of visiting a Mediterranean city during high-temperature season. It was between 30 - 40 Celsius at all time during our trip. Personally, I'm comfortable in the 0 to 15 Celsius range, so you can guess how I was doing in the heat. I was sweating, no, I was pouring. Luckily I had plenty of liquids around to keep me refreshed. But still, at high noon, I was having trouble just standing around. If this trip has taught me one thing, that is that I now have more respect for people in the Mediterranean. I don't know you guys/gals manage to live in that heat, but man, mad respect for that!
We spent most days during our vacation walking from shade to shade, from beer to beer. It was lovely. Quite relaxed and laid back. After a hard day of walking and drinking, we returned to the hotel for some quality time laying on our beds playing video-games on our Vitas.
Well, now I'm back and I have a full year of work to enjoy before my next vacation. This was a wonderful trip, though. And I'm pretty excited to get back into the swing of things. So, here's to me and here's to you. Let's raise a glass to me getting back into writing, and hopefully for you enjoying it. Thanks for reading!
