Again it seems that someone believes me worthy or an award! In the short time I have been writing on here I have been nominated for several awards which is lovely! Just as lovely as this award claims I am! I’d like to thank the also lovely (and entertaining!) Retr0pia for nominating me for this.
This award entails sharing seven interesting facts about oneself, before nominating other lovely bloggers to join in the cycle. So here are some things about me!
Fact 1: I am a teacher.
Some of you may know this already, but I am a maths teacher of around 10 years now. I teach kids between the ages of 11 and 18, many of whom are quite surprised to learn that I like video games perhaps more than they do. Hopefully none of them have found this blog!
Fact 2: I love cooking.
I’m a big fan of cooking. I like to try making something new from time to time. Most days I make sure I’m home from work in time to cook dinner for the family, even if I only have about 30 minutes to get something made. I have a tendency to make things up as I go along though, meaning if a meal turns out to be really good, I can’t remember what I did and we’ll never get it again. Something to be said for the surprise though I suppose.
Fact3: I’m not just a fan of video games.
I also love board games. I don’t get much of a chance to play them, but I do have some that I very much enjoy. I also occasionally frequent a gaming group at a pub in the city. Pandemic and Legendary are favourites, Burger Up has become one I’m a fan of recently. I’m very much looking forward to the Dark Souls game coming out next year.
Fact 4: I’ve done a few charity gaming streams.
As part of Special Effect’s annual Gameblast event, I’ve done some 24 hour non-stop gaming marathons for charity. Myself and a few others who join me have raised about £500 for the charity, who modify consoles to allow people with physical disabilities to play games too. I may do another stream around February, so watch out for it!
Fact 5: I do not like musicals.
No. Just no. Don’t sing the plot to me, don’t try to make me understand through interpretive dance. Just…just stop it!
Fact 6: I rarely go back to games I’ve finished.
This is really down to time, but it’s not often I go back to a game I’ve finished, which means I tend to miss out on content in some cases. This is also why I tend to avoid very long games. I doubt I’ll ever play Witcher 3.
Fact 7: I’m a whisky drinker.
Big fan of whisky, me! Scotch to you Americans reading. As an alcoholic drink it’s one with so much variety, with a type that will suit pretty much every palette. Talisker is my personal favourite, with a nice smokey flavour. Not that I’m a huge alcoholic!
