I last wrote on here on July 29th. Today is November 27th, meaning it's been almost exactly 4 months since I last wrote. I feel really bad for not writing here in a while, so I figured I'd update you all: no, I'm not dead, yes, I feel fine, even with all this Covid stuff going around.
I've mostly been focusing on college. Of course, I'm not gonna give out where I go to school, because of internet privacy and whatnot, but I'm a Game Design major, with hopes to become a composer for games at some point. Because of Covid, though, I'm taking this semester from home, and likely next semester as well. As much as I'd love to be on campus this semester, I think it's better not to risk being around a bunch of people and getting a virus.
I think taking this semester from home has given me a lot of blessings. For one, I don't have to worry about a roommate, because I have my own room in my house. (I don't think I mentioned this on here, but my roommate from my first semester of college flunked out, so I had what was essentially a single room for about 2 months until someone else came in.)
I think the biggest blessing, though, is that I ended up getting super into the Pokemon Trading Card game. I ended up getting some birthday money about a week and a half ago (I'm 19 now, by the way!) so I went to GameStop and bought a Pokemon deck. I ended up going to a local tournament for this game as well last Saturday, where everyone was super supportive and gave me a few more cards to make it more competitive. Social interaction can sometimes be hard for me, so I think it was great that I was able to meet new people and make new friends, and I'm grateful for these opportunities.
I'd like to think things are going fairly well for me, even in spite of all the things going on in the world right now. But I can't help but feel kind of bad, because there's a part of me that feels like I don't deserve it, and I know that there are others who have it a lot worse than I do, so if anything, they should be able to do what I'm doing. But I feel like if there's some sort of higher power, then they're working on me and helping me out a bit.
Anyways, that's pretty much all for now. Hope to see you guys soon!
