Sunday Post (218)

Sunday Post

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. ~ Inspired by the meme In My Mailbox.~ It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Another long week mentally. I’ve been busy binge watching Critical Role and coloring in the Lost Ocean coloring book pretty much all week…my stress relief coloring has basically made my entire arm have a dull ache. I think that’s the point where I realized I might be extremely stressed out. I spent some other down time putting together an RP notebook for our newest session. There are only two of us and my boyfriend who is the DM, but the first session was pretty fun. So I’m looking forward to this evenings go.

  1. Awe, that is bad when your arm hurts from coloring. I hope this week is better for you mentally!

    I’ve never heard of Critical Role but I’ll have to go check them out, sounds fun. I haven’t gamed in ages (we’re scattered all over) but glad to hear someone is gaming regularly. Hope it goes well. 🙂

    • It’s quite good! They have about 60ish episodes out right now, and it comes on weekly on Twitch. It’s great for those who don’t get to play often or need a fix during the waiting periods of your own sessions.

      Our session went great! Some fighting, a lot of BSing to avoid fights, and some great character dialogue. I’m pretty excited for next weekend.

    I’ve never heard of Critical Role either…

    And… is it bad I don’t know what RP or DM is /are? Something to do with gaming perhaps from Greg’s comment.

    • Not bad at all Deborah! RP stands for Role-Play which is a type of game you can play. If you’ve heard of Dungeons & Dragons, that’s basically what that group of games is like. You sit around with a group and basically play a story together. A DM, or Dungeon Master, is the person who creates the bones of the story for the players and is in charge of making the story live around the players. It’s basically all a story telling game.

  4. I used to love watching my ex play Tomb Raider. Ha ha. I was his navigator because he wasn’t good with directions and we used to solve the puzzles together. What part of the storyline are the graphic novels based on? You reminded me that I need to get my Lost Oceans coloring book out. My scary creepy landlord has been on the move and keeps making up reasons he needs to be in our apartment. Ugh. I definitely need some stress relief. I hope whatever is stressing you out goes away. Have fun playing D&D. That should help you keep your mind off things, too. Have a super week. 🙂

    • Tomb Raider got a reboot a few years ago, and it’s been fantastic. Tomb Raider and The Rise of the Tomb Raider deals with Lara’s start to becoming the legendary Tomb Raider. The first two volumes of Tomb Raider take place directly after the first game, and this one takes place right after the second game. They’ve been great ways to get to know future enemies and pass the time between the games.

      Ew…I don’t think I could deal with a landlord like that. Our RP session went fantastic and I’m looking forward to next weekend for sure.

  5. A sore arm is better than a stress related illness though so hopefully all that colouring has helped somewhat. And I hope this week is a little better.

  6. I’ve seen some of the adult coloring books, so I decided to host Beautiful Belly Dancers Coloring Book Blast on Tuesday. Stop on by and check out the giveaway. 🙂 Have a super day.

    Hope the arm ache soon goes away… Have you considered colouring with your OTHER hand? I find I can do it, though I have to concentrate and go a bit more slowly. Hope life is less stressful this coming week – I can relate! This is my Sunday Post – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2016/08/28/sunday-post-28th-august/

  8. Is it terrible that I don’t have a single adult coloring book? o.O I need the curse word one. LOL I hope this week is much better for you. {{{posivibes}}}

  9. I need to get back to the coloring pages! I actually forgot about it… Thanks for reminding me! Hope your arm gets better soon and that you will have a good week. Here’s my Sunday Post: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2016/08/the-sunday-post-double-up-to-100.html

  10. HA yes I remember when I destroyed a stress ball….pretty good indication that I had some pent up stress to let out! 🙂
