Today I was a hero.
I worked from home today because I need to be at the office and I managed to be vaguely productive despite being sick which I count as an achievement. By the end of it though I was feeling pretty totalled but when Emily rang to say her train back from the city had been stopped by a power outage half way home I managed to bundle myself up and into the car and head off to rescue her despite warnings on Twitter from the beureau of meteorology saying a server weather storm would peak within the hour, all the more reason not to leave Emily stranded waiting for a replacement bus. In the end we avoided the storm hit, or it wasn’t as bad as forecast but I still felt like a hero rescuing my princess. We headed home, let BMO out for a play and then cuddled up on the couch as Emily began prepping her GM material for her first Torchbearer game which is super exiting while I continued the adventures of Nathan Drake on the PS4 and oh my gosh is it a great game. The character drama and the writing is outright amazing and there are just so many moments where I go”holy shit” at the beauty or tension or fun I’m having. I’m fucking loving the relationship between Nate and Elena, it gives me all the feels. I found Elena super annoying when I first encountered get in Uncharted 2 but since then she’s just gotten better and better and now she’s definitely my favorite character in Uncharted 4. Based on the pacing I’m pretty sure I’m close to the end and I just don’t want it to end but I trust Naughty Dog to execute the finale well.
At this late point in the evening though, as I’m feeling wretched I am finally willing to admit that I may be actually sick instead of just having a passing irritation.
I slept roughly, interrupted and shallow (40%)
I ate what was convenient (40%)
I didn’t exercise (0 mins)
I didn’t meditate (0 mins)
Tomorrow I’m working in town but only till one so I just hope my sickness doesn’t make that suck.
