27K Milestone [level completed]

Getting older ripens you for some unknown thing in the future.  I can’t say that I’m truly prepared but at least a scale the Great Wall of China this year. I’m much happier this year so it’s up, up and away.

This time next year my life would have changed completely…

Maybe, this is why Facebook is no longer supported on PSN…this will make it a bit harder to profile gamers.

How to handle difficult conversations…..badly

For the life of me, I cannot seem to face awkward conflicts, maybe it’s the stealth in me.  AAA game titles have the biggest mouth and marketing budgets so it is pretty tricky to avoid.  Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint is released on Friday and the early release games are streaming all over the place.

Having watch around 2 hours of expert game-play, reviews and comments on the Pay-Wall I’ve decided to hang back especially with Death Stranding being released next month. I simply would have time to play BreakPoint alongside Episode 2 – Pentagon from Division 2. Pity my clinical decision-making skills don’t always get pulled into my affairs of the heart.

Important but not urgent….apparently

Whenever I focus on this category things work out well, you need a certain level of resilience to focus on non-urgent things in this era of notification and alert overload.  Pack an emergency “go-bag” is never urgent but deadly important in a crisis.  So, it’s time for me to re-focus on non-urgent clamorous that will pay off in the long run.

Our “friends” at EasyJet closed the loophole of phoning the call centre to book luggage on 1 leg of a return flight so I’ll only be booking one-way flights from now on the greedy mothers.  On the plus side I was able to do a admin cost free flight change as I’m apparently a loyalty member, oddly enough you cannot use any of the benefits online but must call and wait your turn for a human being.

Time to pounder

Last of the Summer Whine

Well, play time is nearly over with the meteorological Autumn well in season.  Time to consider winter coats and long sleeve shirts.  Apparently, it will be easier to get loot and gear in Division 2 after the next update. This will be perfect for me to immerse myself outside real life.

The real-life grind ahead of me for the next few months will be at “challenging level” and I’ll need to pull on the talents of those around me.

More gear please

Testing and research is always an interest aspect of learning.  Prodding and poking at something with a long stick is every small boy’s play time.  The new exploration mission in Division 2 and are a perfect diversion from the hours grinding on Raid to no avail.

It’s been fun.
