So, this week came the realisation that I’m getting old. Yes, I know, I’m a little slow on the uptake. You see, my workplace does this whole work experience placement thing, which 15 year old children in the UK have to do. Basically, you apply to work somewhere for two weeks to give you an idea of what the adult world of work is all about. In my workplace, I’m the lucky soul who gets to hang out with these teenagers and help them through their work experience. Its actually not that bad, that is until I realised that I was finishing secondary school when this kid, that’s with us, was starting primary school! Then there was the part over lunch when he felt he had to explain what Steam was. I guess he didn’t think an old, decrepit 20 something would know what Steam was… Still, it has been fun, especially when the guy thinks work is easier than school. Hehe, he’ll learn…
As promised, this week all the posts are not gaming themed and I decided that with today’s post, I’ll give anime some love. A while back I made a post about my Top Five Members of the Fairy Tail Guild. Today, I’m going to be talking about my favourite non-Fairy Tail wizards, from Fairy Tail, who belonged to guilds other than Fairy Tail. The rules for this list are simple: the character must be a wizard, from the Fairy Tail anime and finally must have belonged to a guild, which cannot be Fairy Tail. With the rules out of the way, let’s jump into my list!
With a lot of superhero films being released this year and the summer blockbusters coming out in cinemas, I thought now would be a good time to recommend a book all about people with superpowers, Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.
I’ll be honest, I hate the heat. Freezing cold, I can deal with but when the temperature outside starts to rise, I just can’t handle it. So, I’m probably one of the few people in the UK who is praying for some rain. Unfortunately, it looks like this heat is here to stay for July and perhaps even August. Yay.
Anyway, enough of my complaining, let’s talk about what I’ve been doing!
It is absolutely roasting in the UK, so I’m taking any excuse to keep cool and stay inside. The Humble Monthly Bundle’s timing couldn’t be more perfect, as it gives me the perfect excuse. Join me, as we explore another bundle of gaming goodness!
This is it. The final post for this challenge. I’m sure some of you are glad that we have now reached the end, thirty days of video game focused posts can be a little trying. So, without further ado, let’s finish this challenge!
With this challenge’s penultimate post, we’re taking a trip down memory lane!
