I'm Sorry, I Lose

I was just reading through some old blogs, and feeling terribly nostalgic, when I remembered that I had, with perfect sincerity, intended to update this more often. Now, unfortunately, I cannot even remember my idea for Cities & Knights on a large board with fewer players, I assume that raising the victory point thresh-hold for victory was part of it. In other news, board game night this evening, at which I played Settlers, and Dominion for the first time since acquiring it. If you enjoy strategy games or CCG (collectible card games) I suggest you give this game a try some time.

Other news, I have been attempting to restructure my life in order to regain the feeling that I am living it, rather than suffering through it. Toward that end I have recently resumed my dancing ways in some small manner. This serves the double purpose of being a gateway to awesomeness and providing some fresh water to my small and swiftly stagnating social circle. Unfortunately I managed to forget much of that which I used to know. Fortunately, this can be remedied by dancing, which is pretty fun as remedies go.

Health has been touch and go since last I posted, last semester I played host to what I identified as a flu and at another time a cold, in addition to two professionally diagnosed ear infections, one in each ear at the same time at least. This semester has been better, I was sick recently, I cold I believe, and have had annoying sinus issues all term. There is something to be said for being ill, since once I recover there is an increased appreciation of whatever level of health I have regained. Also in the plus column, my cold was timed properly to mess up a weekend, rather than interfering with my dancing schedule.

Well, being up until 6 AM is not entirely in keeping with my new attitude toward life, but I think it is forgivable considering the spring break situation. However, I shall be heading to bed now. Hopefully this time I shall actually update more often. I am considering mentioning my blog on Facebook in order to drum up interest, and hopefully responses, which would in turn increase my own interest in the project. We'll see, I might end up being to proud to do something that sounds so much like asking for attention.
