Hello, January! Happy New Year, guys! I hope 2017 is a fantastic year for you and your loved ones. Thank you for being here!
During the last week of the year, time seemed to move at a slower pace.
On Monday, we were still eating left over Mac n’ Cheese from Christmas. Unfortunately, we couldn’t share with Thor.
In the afternoon, I went to pick up a gift from one the Twitch mods who protect my channel, Thesawolf. It made me laugh. 😀 Thanks, Thesawolf!
In general, the mod team is doing an incredible job in keeping the chat a friendly, fun space. Thank you so much!
I streamed Skyrim at night and showed the Thor calendar I made for my mom. I got some requests to make more. Hehe! I think I will!
I spent Tuesday learning how to use my Christmas gifts. One is a Silhouette Portrait, which is a cutting machine for arts and crafts. I figured out how to make stickers! WOO! I don’t know why it makes me so happy. These stickers below are for keeping track of when I stream. Hehehehe!
The other gift is a mini laser engraver. It works on materials like bits of wood. I still haven’t been able to get it to align properly, and the instructions aren’t very clear… but I’ll keep trying!
Wednesday morning, Thor and I took an extra long walk. The weather was lovely.
In the afternoon, I streamed some live music! I got a request to sing Hesitation, from All of the Above. I hadn’t played this in years! It reminded me of how much I loved working on that original album, and how excited I am to be recording a new one this year. It always surprises me when you guys know these old songs.
Afterwards, we went out for lunch and I ate a bacon hamburger that is worth mentioning in this recap just because it was so epic.
At night, we recorded an episode of our Spanish gaming podcast, El Rol que Jugamos on Twitch. It’s been very cool to see this community growing over time. It’s every Wednesday at 9pm central on Omi’s channel.
On Thursday, I streamed music again! I finally got to play Sinking Ships for Tommy (a sub/mod) who requested this a few weeks ago. Beautiful song. I’m glad Tommy introduced me to this band, Trees of Eternity. From wiki: “Their music is often described as down-tempo, doom/death-inspired melancholia with ghostly female vocals.”
Friday was spent preparing for a get-together with friends at our house. Everyone showed up at around 8pm. We ordered delicious tacos and proceeded to reminisce about 2016.
Also, MoraGamer on Twitter shared this pic of a newspaper featuring some musicians who make tributes to games on YouTube! Nice to be included!
Saturday was spent recuperating from Friday. haha! In the evening, we gathered with family to celebrate New Year’s Eve. More delicious food. I think I’m still full and it’s Monday… hahaha!
When fireworks started going off, Thor got a bit scared, but we were prepared. Omi put a playlist on Spotify called something like “Dog Therapy Music”. hahaha! And we gave Thor a bone to chew. Food won over fear! Haha! Good ol’ Labs.
I managed to clean up a lot on Sunday. It was long overdue. We had an entire… Well… I should say. I had an entire area of the house full of boxes, camera equipment, guitar cases, boxes of percussion instruments, etc. Things needed to be sorted and stored properly…. Hmm… I’d never realized how the words sorted and stored are made up exactly of the same letters. hahaha! I spent a couple of hours doing that and it made such a difference!
I ended the day by streaming Skyrim. <3
Thanks for reading, guys! I’m looking forward to this new year and all the adventures we’ll get to go on together.
Love from Mexico,
