Christmas is just around the corner, and I’m looking forward to it! Ahhh… no, I no longer believe in Santa Claus, and I don’t have anyone special to be spending the day with (pathetic, I know… but whatever, am done wallowing in that kinda misery). What I do have though, are 3 days off work – the Eve, the Day & Boxing Day. I wasn’t expecting to get 3 days off though, generally it’s just 1.5 days and since I was notified only last week about it, I didn’t make any travel plans. Making them now will be too expensive, so that pretty much means I’ll have 3 days of NOTHING to do! Freaking awesome o(^_^)o
Perfect time for a gaming marathon! I’ve been wanting to have one for months now, to just do nothing much else but game for hours and hours and hours… Since I have 3 days, I’m either gonna game for 2 of them, and cross-stitch (which chain-watching a TV series) for the remaining one; OR I’ll just do a 26hr gaming session at a go (with 10 min break each hour) then sleep the remaining day. Much as I love the latter option, am unsure whether I’m able to handle it now that I’m no longer as young as I used to be.
Anyway… the games. Am thinking of playing 3 games dominantly and tossing another 2 more as options, in case I get bored for some reason.
As I desperately NEED to finish up FFXIII so I can return the PS3 to my friend, it will be one of the titles that I’ll be working on this time – am keeping fingers crossed that this marathon session will allow me to make significant progress, if not complete it. Another I’ll be working on is pre-maturely ending the Cherubian WYDC on The Sims 3, to allow myself to a fresh reinstall with all the full expansion packs that I plan to purchase over Steam this Christmas period. Then of cos, there will be my latest obsession Pokémon Y.
Assuming that I’ll have yet to pick up Animal Crossing: A New Leaf or Fire Emblem: Awakening by then, my 2 other ‘spares’ will be FFVII and Heroes of Might & Magic VI – both obtained via Steam during the recent Black Friday sale.
Mhmm… now that I look @ it, I might not have time for any cross stitching! Darn, and I was initially wondering how to slot a gym session and a morning run into all that OTL
