December Wrap Up and New Year Goals!

Happy New Year’s Novas, Players and SuperStars! This year has been fantastic and I feel really blessed to have completed another year of life, love and happiness. There are always challenges ahead, but pushing through those challenges and completing (or attempting) your goals can give you an incredible sense of peace. When I started the blog back in January, I was looking for a place that I could talk about video games and create a community of people with similar interests. Somehow the blog grew and transformed with me into the fun thing that we have now and I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has encouraged and journeyed with us!

Today’s Topic:

Midnight rolls around and it’s time to pick a New Year gaming resolution to see you through the next 12 months. What’s your choice for 2018?

I have increased my amount of gaming this year, but I have to admit there are some goals that I have been wanting to fulfill.

  1. Buy A Nintendo Switch– I have been wanting a switch all year but have not purchased one as of yet. This is a goal that I have for 2018
  2. Streaming & YouTube – My friends are a very eclectic bunch and we run into the most hilarious situations when we play together. I want to share my love for gaming and our hilarious situations with the world. To do this, I need to purchase a camera and a capture card to have the best quality.
  3. Buy More Games – I haven’t bought as many games as I had in previous years of my life. I want to pre-order and purchase at least 5 games in 2018. One game that I am looking forward to is Red Dead Redemption 2 (please release soon lol) as it was announced 2 years ago, yet we are still waiting for the game to fully release. Hopefully this means that Rockstar is enhancing the game and it will launch without a glitch!
  4. Find More Time for Video Games – My last gaming goal of 2018 is to find more time to enjoy what I love to do so much. Right now my schedule with work and life in general gets in the way of me having ample time to play, but I’m starting to find gaps in my schedule that lets me enjoy the escape of video games. I aim to continue this process throughout the New Year!
