Another week has passed in lockdown. And I can’t even start to imagine how many more wonky shelves have been put up. Not to mention the metres of wrinkly wallpaper and litres of streaky paint. You see, DIY isn’t for everyone – some things are just better left to the professionals. Yet, we lie to ourselves daily and promise our loved ones that we can build them the house of their dreams, when in fact we can hardly build a sandwich.
But Homer had the right idea. Homer knew better. So, next time you’re feeling a little “home improvey”, do like Simpson and whack that idea with a crowbar. Because it won’t come out how you imagine, so why even bother?
The best thing about not even trying is the time you save, and the disappointment. Time you can spend on the sofa, in front of the telly, playing a game or two. Something I’m sure you agree is a better use of time.
Maybe you can try it out for yourself this weekend and thank me later?
I’ve finally managed to get into Just Cause 4, so I’ll be causing as much physics based mayhem as I can as Rico Rodriguez. If I’m not trashing a tropical island I’ll be booting up a game for review, and from the few hours I’ve spent on it today I’m in for a good time.
I have a lot of non-gaming stuff to get done this weekend, but I’ll be trying to spend some time with Final Fantasy VII Remake when I can.
Is it Friday already? The last few days have completely escaped me in a blink of an eye. I’ll continue playing and endeavour onward with Yooka-Laylee. I say endeavour as I’m now reminded why I hit a wall prior, with the water-themed world Moodymaze Marsh. I may accompany the silly shenanigans with some Octodad as well.
I’m in a bit of a gaming funk as I await some big upcoming releases, namely The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima. I have no shortage of things to play but nothing appeals so maybe I think I’ll just binge the new season of Queer Eye, read some bleak, apocalyptic literature, and wait until either something piques my interest or The Last of Us arrives.
With a week of exams incoming, I’ll be stuffing my face with brain food – i.e. pages out of my textbook. But don’t worry, I’ll make it up to myself next weekend, for sure!

Living life one Batmobile chase at a time. When she’s not writing about video games, she’s writing terrible jokes that even a Christmas cracker would be embarrassed to share.
