#VEDA 1 comment

I’ve been wanting to do #VEDA (Vlog Every Day in August) for a while now, but just never have.

This year I’m going to actually try to do it.

So if you want to follow along, I’ll be using Vimeo because my phone doesn’t upload to youtube, and @KieryGeek on twitter will autopost when a new one is up. I’ll post on patreon links to it too, and facebook, and probably here, maybe, we’ll see.

See you…tomorrow…I guess.


#KieryPlaysDestiny

WarlockSo I’ve been playing Destiny, and it’s not usually my kind of game. It’s FPS for one thing and Multiplayer for another, and I usually like soloing and not playing with people – so when the only way to level is to raid with 5 other people……it can make for a frustrated Kiery. However, in a surprising turn of events, I’ve really enjoyed it. The100 is a great way to find groups, and mine is really low-key and nice and have been pleasant to game with and I don’t feel unsafe with them.

All that to say, I finally got my Warlock to level 32, and yet…AND YET…still have not gotten ONE exotic weapon drop from ANYTHING. I’ve been working my butt off doing bounties and crucible but Iron Banner and buying helmets from Xur are the only reason I’ve made any progress at all. I got my first exotic bounty on Saturday night because apparently I just finally turned enough bounties in (IDEFK) to get one, so I’ve been playing through the Strike Playlist to make progress on acquiring my first-ever exotic weapon, which will be Bad Juju.

I also started a Titan in hopes maybe it’s just my main that is somehow under a Bungie Curse Of No Loot and to increase my chances of exotic drops, but that little Exo is only level 2.

Anyway, I had to hit cap before I got a fucking exotic bounty and have yet to receive ANY drops, but I FINALLY have one, and I’m happy about it. Hopefully this ends the no-drop curse and I actually start getting things now, because seriously……


My Blog is Breathing

Seriously though, it’s weird. Every other year or so, I expand out (exhale) I disperse my art and my thoughts across various different sites for a couple years to compartmentalize them in my mind, and then over time, every thing comes back together (inhale) and I try to put everything back in one place again. I’ve done this enough times that it’s starting to feel like breathing, a natural inhale and exhale of my online presence, going more places and coming back in. I’ve added back a couple handfuls of posts from KieryGeek.Com because I keep writing (or wanting to write) about games here, and keeping up an entirely separate and more quiet blog has been thrown to the wayside, but then I feel guilty and like I’m neglecting it. If you check out the KieryGeek category, you’ll see a bunch more stuff than before.

KieryGeek.Com will still be around and alive, as an archive (so all the links will work, yay!) until I decide to exhale again.

I’m also breathing.

I changed meds and have been taking Lexapro for about two weeks now and I feel a lot better than I did on Zoloft. The vivid dreams have started to die down so I’m sleeping again, which is helpful. I got my hair cut, and I get to play business Kiery this weekend, which involves makeup and some pretty rad shoes.


Housekeeping

If you are following KieryGeek and Humorotica I have an important note.

For reasons that involve creating safe places and also to get me to actually use more than one twitter account and figure out how to…multitask? or is it focus? something like that – if you get all your updates from @kiery28, or don’t get twitter updates about either project at all, but want them please go follow @kierygeek and @humoroticathulu.

I’m going to be using them more, more than once a week for Humorotica and more than once a month for KieryGeek. I’ll try to make it interesting and worth your while, I swear.

Thanks so much for helping me out <3

(also, if Facebook is more your style, KieryGeek and Humorotica currently share a space at KieryGeek: Rebooted. I know, I know, Humorotica should have it’s own page. One step at a time)


Life Happened 2 comments

I have this familiar sense of needing to write – because all of the things happened – but not having enough coherent thoughts to put anything together. This happens a lot if I write infrequently, like I have been lately – lots of life happens in between posts and then I’m like, wait, what?

So here’s a brief listy-like update:

1: Humorotica has it’s own domain and new comics! And twitter (@humoroticathulu)

2. So does KieryGeek (and twitter @kierygeek)

3. I went and saw Aleka for a week and we went to a RenFaire and it was awesome.

4. While I was there, I CHOPPED OFF MY HAIR. And I think it looks awesome, and goes well with my new Gunnar’s glasses (Crystaline for drawing, yay!)

I actually realized, today that the way my hair is cut is verrrrry similar to the way I draw my hair in my comics, which wasn’t intentional, but it feels very me and I’m happy about that.

5. KieryGeek 3.2 is out, about Guild Wars 2.

6. Crazy week. Thoughts. Things. Interesting. my brain is a blob right now.

7. Ni No Kuni, that is all.
