Hiya TAY people! Long while since I’ve been in this corner of the internet. Wonder how many faces here I’d be able to recognize now (or would recognize me).

Anyways... Lately I’ve been struggling with maintaining normal sleeping hours. The absolute earliest I’m able to sleep these days is 4 am which is not great. With a new semester just around the corner and my first class starting at 8 am things aren’t looking so great for me. This of course throws me into a cycle of trying to keep myself awake for more than 24 hours so I can try and sleep through a night. Of course this never works and I only end up sleeping a couple of hours of interrupted sleep.

We are coming into a great couple of month for all kinds of different game genres! Warcraft has a new expansion that just launched for the MMO fiends. Rest of the year has the likes of Spiderman, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Dragon Quest XI, Forza Horizon 4, Megaman 11, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Super Mario Party, Black Ops 4, Battlefield 5, Soul Calibur 6, Red Dead Redemption 2, Fallout 76, Let’s Go Pikachu, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Wow that is a long list of things I’m going to try my hardest not to buy...

TL;DR

I cannot sleep. I wish I was rich and could buy all the games.

ONWARDS TO THE QUESTIONS OF THE DAY:

  • Have you ever had any issues with sleeping? How do you sleep??? ANY TIPS WELCOME
  • If you could only buy one game release for the rest of the year, which game would you choose? Why?
  • What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
  • Cake frosting or no cake frosting?
  • Pancakes or waffles?

I have a special on music today. Buy one, get one free!!!:

P.S. Shimomura is a goddess and the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra is completely worth whatever money you have to pay.

P.P.S. Tame Impala is great music made even better at night.
