Robin Williams

“Robin Williams was an airman, a doctor, a genie a nanny, a president, a professor, a bangarang Peter Pan, and everything in between. But he was one of a kind. He arrived in our lives as an alien – but he ended up touching every element of the human spirit. He made us laugh. He made us cry. He gave his immeasurable talent freely and generously to those who needed it most – from our troops stationed abroad to the marginalized on our own streets. The Obama family offers our condolences to Robin’s family, his friends, and everyone who found their voice and their verse thanks to Robin Williams.” – Obama

Robin Williams’ films defined much of my childhood. It is hard to imagine that someone who could bring so much joy and laughter to the hearts of so many could be struggling with depression and it broke my heart that he felt the need to leave this world so soon. I can’t believe it’s now been 2 years since he’s passed on and my husband and I have just brought ourselves back to watching his movies.

I omitted his Television work (except for Mork & Mindy) and some of the movies where he was given a smaller role he wasn’t credited for, but you can find it all here on his IMDB page.

The Witcher 2: Assassin’s of Kings Microreview – 18/20!

Much, much better than the first game in more ways than one! There is still a very grim and corrupt overtone set within the plot that’s a theme among Witcher games, but the graphic design (primarily the lighting) lifted the atmosphere from oppressive to enjoyable.

30 Day Yoga Challenge Results

YogaChallengeFinal.jpg

The 30 days in my 30 Day Yoga Challenge are up and as you can see, I did not complete the challenge completely. Bummer!

I was able to practice Yoga 26 of the 30 days and I am satisfied with that. I feel more relaxed and more limber than before, but less so than when I’ve practiced yoga in the past. I believe this may be due to cutting down on my sugar intake during these past 30 days too, and the effect that has had on my body as I detox has not been enjoyable. In fact, some of the days I didn’t practice I was feeling extreme fatigue and/or suffering from headaches.

Moving forward, I do feel confident that I’ve broken in a new habit. I fully intend to keep practicing yoga at least 3 to 4 days a week! Who’s with me!?

The Witcher Microreview – 15/20!

One of the drawbacks of my fascination with playing games in chronological order is that sometimes, the first games are a little older and a little less enjoyable. I gleaned what story details I could, but the grim design and tone did not endear this game to me. It took me two tries before I could play all the way through and finish it.

Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power Microreview – 14/20

Lowest score I’ve given a game yet! Now I can see why this game received poor reviews! While the visuals were still as beautiful as ever, the game felt incredibly short and incomplete.

Yoga Challenge Update

YogaChallengeUpdate.jpg

Alright, I am about halfway through my 30 Day Yoga Challenge and I decided to check in and let y’all know how I’m doing…

I missed a day…blargh! It was a Saturday. The day went by and before I knew it I was crawling into bed, dozing off and jolting awake when I realized I’d neglected my yoga! Part of me feels terrible, but I do realize I want to create a lasting habit out of this challenge and some days will be missed. I didn’t use it as an excuse to give up and I won’t give up!
