Lent Failure 2017

This will be a short blog post, but it might be entertaining in itself anyway.

 

Last Friday, at about 2pm, I was so tired and I was not feeling well anyways that I tried the new Nintendo Switch console for five minutes because it had Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I mean I had been sitting on my Wii U copy of the new Zelda game for a few days and I dunno I saw something new and shiny and tried it. I did not know if I would have another shot again at trying it. I want to do a review on my experience because doing a full review on the machine itself is not a fair assessment.

Anyway, without even realizing it until the next day on Saturday around 11am I had just finished breakfast when I realized what I had just done. I was very upset with myself, but in hindsight I at least lasted ten days. Mom reminded me again I was not Catholic so it is not a big deal. But, it is a big deal because I set out to do something only be ruined in five minutes. So I guess I am back to playing video games. Well, there is always next year?

Day 8 of Lent…

So most stuff of Lent that I wanted to abstain from did not work out as planned, but the one thing that has stuck is that I have not touched a video game. It has been eight days and the first week was not so bad because I was busy, but the weekend was slightly unnerving only because I had more time on my hands. I do not want to even think about this upcoming weekend. I will bide my time with more reading and maybe do some spring cleaning. We all need a little spring cleaning once in awhile right?

I am on book four of the Throne of Glass series, by Sarah J. Maas. Queen of Shadows is a little more action packed and thank goddess it is because it has many more pages than the previous installment. I think I may get through this book in half the time it took me to get through Heir of Fire. I think each book gets better plot wise and things are still drawn out, but not as bad since the first book. I have other books that I read and I wish I could just finish them all in a month…if I were a faster reader. I can read fast, but I will not comprehend what I just read. When I read fast I can tell you what each word means, remember what I have read, and stuff, but to string them together to form a plot I can not do. I do not read super slow either, nor do I read slow and I would like to think I read at a normal pace if not a bit faster. It took me four months round about to read Heir of Fire. This was not due to my reading speed, but it was a combination of life getting busy or I just got bored with some parts and took a break. The other theory is as I have stated before that I have many books that I read at a time. You can see this in my “Bookshelf Life” tab.
