The Chaotic Chronicles (Issue #2)

Intro

Welcome to the second issue of the Chaotic Chronicles, which revolves around what’s been going on in my chaotic life. I intend to publish these weekly if possible on Wednesdays and will do my best to keep it interesting. Feedback is welcome and encouraged. Below I will list what I’ve been up to recently!

#1: Covid Testing

After feeling very sick at work and going home early last Monday, I was required to take a Covid test. I had to call off of two days of work because I was awaiting results, which took until late Friday to arrive. (I have Wednesdays and Thursdays off). Luckily, I tested negative so I was able to go back to work on Saturday. It felt good to be back.

#2: Inspiration4 Launch

I watched the Inspiration4 launch on Youtube last week. It was amazing. This was the first all-civilian mission to orbit the Earth! That’s right–no trained astronauts were on board. They launched and landed safely after the three day mission. And what’s even cooler is that the rocket is reusable, the parts of it having come back to Earth intact as planned. The crew was made up of four individuals thought to be representative of leadership, hope, generosity, and prosperity. My dad went to see the launch in person in Florida. Learn more at this link.

#3: Got Stardew Valley

My family bought Stardew Valley for the Nintendo Switch. Can’t wait to try it out!

#4: My First Instagram Poll

I tried my first instagram poll recently in order to get the next few blog articles I am writing planned out.

They will be:

The Princess Bride

The Legend of Korra

Mechs vs. Minions

Intro

#1: Broadening my horizons

I am doing my best to be the greatest writer, blogger, and reviewer I can be. As a result, I’ve decided to broaden my horizons by publishing reviews on more platforms. I have revitalized my Goodreads account, started an IMDb account, and began posting reviews on Board Game Geek. If there are more sites I should consider sharing my work on, let me know!

#2: A Discord Server

Recently I created a discord server that is primarily for creative types, but is also a place for a lot of really cool people to hang out. Some of our topics include books, writing, art, movies, shows, anime, board games, video games, and music.

#3: I got this cute My Hero Academia energy drink

My Hero Academia energy drink

I think this was the first time I’ve ever had an actual energy drink. Everyone always told me they were bad for you, so I had been reluctant to try one. But I couldn’t resist one that was My Hero Academia themed. I am such a geek. It was raspberry-flavored. It wasn’t the best drink but it wasn’t the worst. I cleaned out the can to use as a decoration.

#4: Check out my new Funkos

Izuku Midoriya, She-Ra, and UA High Funko Pops

My newest additions include Izuku Midoriya and UA High from My Hero Academia and She-Ra. I love both shows, so it was a real pleasure to add these to my collection.
