Taking Long Breaks Is Awesome! Also, Rakuen.

Taking Long Breaks Is Awesome! Also, Rakuen

Yo. Sup.

I took a three-day break recently. It was awesome! I watched video game playthroughs on YouTube. All day. Three days in a row.

Saw a Cat Quest vid and I’m totally gonna be getting that one. Some time. I mean, an Intel graphics card as the “maximum” requirements, come on. And it doesn’t cost a fortune.


So, to what end did I take such a long break?

First of all, why did I even take a break? That’s simple. Cuz I needed it.

Everyone needs a break every now and then, especially people like me. You see, I’m Capricorn-heavy, and other things, so I tend to get lost in things I do. I start something, get carried away, don’t think it’s actually work, but it’s actually work.

Yes, I’m a workaholic.

No, I’m not a lazy sloth.

(And yes, I love video games.)

Breaks are something that I still need to figure out for myself. I can’t, for the life of me, make myself take them while I work, a.k.a. “do something”.

And I do got a lot to do. So, I need a lot of breaks.


Why so long?

Well, as I’ve said, when I start doing something, I get carried away. Like, for hours.

Homework? Easy two-three hours at least.

Instagram? A couple of hours initially, because research and caption writing and pic choice and design. Then an hour or two more to follow up on engagement. Then twenty minutes here, fifteen minutes there, a bit more cuz I can’t fall asleep…

Also, mental health concerns are why I took that long. I have a lot of suppressed and ignored deep feelings and emotions I gotta work through. And to tread upon such dangerous roads I need time.


Speaking of mental health concerns. (Rakuen part.)

(I’m going to see a doctor who might prescribe me something, like mood stabilizers or whatever. But that’s not the point of this part.)

The point of this part is Rakuen.

I watched Cryaotic’s playthrough of it.

Rakuen is amazing. It’s a mix of an alternative fantasy reality, a quiet tragedy, heroism and passage between worlds. And that’s right up my alley.

And from this video game, I learned precisely what I needed to progress with my emotions. I learned what nurture and support are and what they do. I so needed that.

I’m happy I progressed here.

Now I just gotta figure out how the heck I’m supposed to get a job (ASAP). And what job.

And do a shitload of other things.

Son of a beholder.

Weekly Work, Life & Play Reading #1.

First reading in the series.


This is the first reading from my new weekly Tarot series! Yay! I finally run one!

I’ll use the Shapeshifter deck for every reading. I’ll draw three cards: one for work, one for life and another for play.

Work covers your life at work, be it an office, a construction site or your home. Also included are your school, college or university studies. Any work-like hobbies and volunteering, such as cooking and repairs, go here as well.

Life refers to your time away from work and leisure. This card’s also about your family, friends, and relationships.

Play is how you unwind and have fun. Movies, Netflix, reading, video games, hiking, biking, beach, you name it.

And of course, all three cards work as a team. Many people play for a living or work with their family members.


Now, on to the reading.


Sixth of August, 2017

This is the reading
An emotionally difficult week.

The week ahead will be emotionally difficult. The Lovers point to strong feelings, and core ideals will often take the lead. Rejection is sure to bring your spirits down. Fortunately, The Four Winds hint that you’ll find your calm zone amid the drama.


Work: The Lovers.

The Lovers
The Lovers

Prepare for emotion-heavy drama. Its cause could be something small, simple and solitary, but it’ll throw you into a fit. Your core ideals clash and harmonize with those of others. For that reason, your possible reactions can range from rage to euphoria and be extreme.

In the same vein, you’re likely to be overcome by jealousy, envy, and passion. You may be tempted to rush into getting whatever you’ve wanted, from a promotion to a love affair at work. So, proceed at your own risk. You can get burned or lucky.

To work through such emotions you may go off soul-searching. And you may have deep conversations with your coworkers, even if you’ve never opened up to them.


Life: The Four Winds.

Your environment may take you by surprise with its shallowness, and that’s okay. It’ll help you detach from The Lovers’ intensity. Go for a walk, listen to the dancing wind and the rustling leaves. Meditate.

At its extreme, this card promises wisdom and revelation. For certain, you’ll calm down and enjoy the autumn-like weather outside.


Play: Rejection.


Your leisure activities may burn you out. You may disagree with your playmates and they may kick you out of the group.

Look out for cancellations and remember: schedules and people can be inflexible. You’ll hear and talk about bad weather, “not feeling it” and other excuses. In the end, you may find yourself playing on your own or deciding to pass on it.

What No One Else Can Do for You: The Power to Be Happy.

Happy like a puppy

Hello, dear reader!

You don’t need other people to make you happy. If you think you do, then you’re giving away your power.

That power is your ability to decide for yourself, make mistakes and be responsible and independent. In other words, it’s your ability to live, succeed and find happiness on your terms.

Choosing to rely on others to make you happy can be convenient. It can make you feel comfortable and forever safe and cared for.

But have you thought how your caregivers might feel? Being responsible for someone else’s success and happiness is a heavy burden.
