Continuing to read Warbreaker Still on break from Forum Mafia Tempted to play again Feel uncertain about my schedule and my emotional state Probably would seek a light game with a post cap Getting back into meditation with Headspace Playing less on BGA

Just a note...

I've been neglecting to post here. My thoughts are in a tempest lately. Lots of unknowns in my life and I'm trying to find my way through it all. However, I have been writing in a Pure Writer app I found. I'm experimenting with writing there and seeing whether my thoughts flow better that way. I sometimes have more time here and there to write something on my phone than to type up a blog entry on my laptop. I've tried writing blog entries from my phone, but it didn't work out so well. So I'm going to try writing in the app and then later taking parts of that to post as blog entries.

Apparently more serious problem with FoL site May never be restored Mods are working on getting new site hosted elsewhere Offered to pay for 1st year hosting so we get reduced price Monthly donations can be saved up for next year Suggested "Fellowship of Lies" or "Family of Lies" for new site name Someone else listed other suggestions of "Fortress of Lies" and "Fount of Lies" which I like Moved FoL archive to GitHub WhysperKitsune/FoL-Archive (github.com) Set up Netlify to automatically publish from GitHub https://fol-archive.netlify.app Still working on getting Google to crawl site Continuing to read Warbreaker Going through a rough time now Fighting away tendency towards depression Listening to Stoic podcasts helps

Basically trying to keep my head above water Lots of waves, lots of ups and downs this weekend Best benefit is that I'm focusing more on future survival Survival in terms of everything: physical, mental, emotional The Emperor's Soul still touches me I want time to think over things more Story makes me think about reviewing my past blog entries Probably going to read Warbreaker next Another Cosmere book by Brandon Sanderson Coup: Uprising game on FoL was canned Host found more errors with potentially serious consequences Put up poll on whether to can the game Listening to "Viking" songs often recently Started with Skellige song from GWENT that I love Found other similar songs

Finished reading The Great Mental Models yesterday Pretty good. I do wish some of the models were explained more. And some I only understood because I'd read about them before from other sources. I don't think I'd have understood the significance just from the mention here. Started The Emperor's Soul  after that and just finished this morning Written by Brandon Sanderson Part of the Cosmere Oh wow, I wasn't expecting this story to be so good! It could be my favorite one from Sanderson. And Shai is definitely among my favorite characters. I was especially happy to find out that Sanderson got his inspiration from a trip to Taiwan. I had been feeling that connection while reading.

Not sure what to expect from this week Still worried about another incident coming up unexpectedly Still so much to do Need to take it step by step Continuing to watch Sword Art Online: Alicization Another incident did come up just now Luckily was able to resolve it quickly Really was nothing Just a certain person trying to make problems out of nothing Continuing to listen to Existential Stoic Podcast Hosts are kind of dorks and say a lot of cliché things over and over However I find this still useful Discovered that just listening to same stuff from various people is good Sometimes gives different perspective Even gives chance to rethink things I've overlooked Above is another recent piece from WLOP
