December 11, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 545) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

Things seem extra sad and bad as we near the end of the calendar year. But my food benefits seem renewed, so that is at least a small positive. And for the moment I continue to remain ok feeling, so I try to hang on to hope.

December 4, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 544) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

As things continue to get worse I dwell more and more on death and despair. More and more is needing to be taken out of my reserved pre-ordered birthday gift, and it hurts more and more each time, making me feel like I can't keep anything of a future.

November 27, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 543) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

For the moment I am current on both the car insurance payment and next school quarter, but that was again at the cost of part of my reserved birthday present money. And I fear unless more help comes, the December car payment just around the corner, and other items, will force even more of my reserved money to be lost taking away one of the few nice things I get a year.

November 24, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 313: Forced to be Forsaken - Link
In this podcast I ramble about how Forsaken makes Destiny (2) what it always should have been, but how I still regret Bungie's choice to make it, and future expansions, a required upgrade.
November 20, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 542) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

In good news the laptop power supply is replaced for the free, and it's working fine again. In worrying news I still have no help and the car insurance payment gets more and more overdue.

November 13, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 541) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

I continue to worry about unpaid car insurance. The weather turns to freezing winter, possibly due to the fires. And my laptop power supply dies.

November 10, '18 - Saturday - System recommendation updates - systems link
The new systems feature the brand new Intel CPUs as well as the newer 390 chipset motherboards to go with them. Higher-end systems also have Nvidia RTX graphic cards, though it may still be a bit before we see many games with ray tracing. Also, all builds now feature 144 Hz or faster monitors.
November 6, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 540) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

With needing to rob myself of some of my birthday game money I had saved, things seem extremely sad. Putting money into my phone to keep it active in the hopes of a paid survey seems more like I've lost my gift than a chance at getting some income.

November 3, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 312: A Playerbase divided and discarded - Link
In this podcast I ramble about how Destiny 2 divides its player base, and how Bungie pushes away those who do not purchase the expansion.
October 30, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 539) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

More worries that I have nothing saved to pay the upcoming car insurance payment or for gas which is rapidly dwindling. Also, the next school quarter registration is open, and I have nothing for that either.

October 23, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 538) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

Bad dreams remind me how much I've lost, causing me to continue to fixate on death and loss. The end of the month rapidly approaches, and with it the fear that I have nothing saved to pay the upcoming car insurance payment.

October 16, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 537) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

The cold and allergies refuse to clear, and I become fully settled in being a TA again.

October 13, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 311: For Sparta - Link
In this podcast I ramble about Assassin's Creed Odyssey. It's one of the best open world games I've played, and due to adding role playing and standard leveling elements, it's one of the best overall games I've played ever. It's a massive, yet quite enjoyable game, which huge landscapes as well as lots and lots to do.

I also rented God of War (4), a Playstation exclusive. It's an incredible continuation of the series told in a new role playing style. It still retains all of the incredibly epic feel of the previous games, and even improves on them, and retains a surprising amount of the fast action that a pure arcade game would have. It's a must buy for any God of War fan who is open to the change in game play style.

And at the end I have some closing thoughts for Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.

October 9, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 536) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

Still feeling very sick-like due to my allergies. The loss of more of another tooth causes profound sads.

October 2, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 535) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

School is officially started, and it feels a bit weird. My cold continues to go from bad to worse, but I'm hopeful about the appointment Wednesday to get drugs to finally beat it.

September 25, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 534) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

School starts. My routine is thrown off, yet feels back to normal at the same time. I am back to being a 'helper' for my professor, but still feel uncertain if I'm truly appreciated as such.

September 22, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 310: Hungry outsider - Link
In this podcast I ramble a bit about Hungry Dragon, a mobile game I'd mentioned quite a while ago. You fly around a map eating all the things. Between levels you can unlock bigger and bigger dragons to eat even more things! I also talk a bit about my six or so hours played so far in Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.
September 18, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 533) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

The cold becomes one of the worst ever. I spend half a day with near fever and chills, and several days with extremely cracked lips from having to breathe through my mouth at night.

September 11, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 532) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

The cold or allergies continue and meds seem to have no effect. I overdose to no effect, and then stop trying to fight it with meds completely. Sad thoughts become more common as we near the end of the year and the bigger bills approach.

September 4, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 531) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

The cold or allergies continue to go from tolerable to terrible. There is seemingly no end in sight.

September 1, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 309: Rays and shadows - Link
In this podcast I ramble a bit about Nvidia's new ray tracing and shadow technology and in what ways you may see it affect the future of gaming. I also ramble just a tiny bit about Elder Scrolls Online's newest DLC; Wolfhunter.
August 28, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 530) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

The cold or allergies return, and seem to go in cycles of not so bad to worse. A bit more birthday money comes in and I ponder what to do with it. Sadness follows, as the more I try to think up things the more are seemingly revealed to be more expensive than I remember them being, leaving me feeling even more behind and helpless.

August 21, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 529) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

Though I am still congested, there are many happy birthdays. And, birthday monies ensure I get to pre-order the game I want most, and have money to sign up for classes when they start at the end of September, allowing me to continue to fend off financial aid.

August 14, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 528) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

My cold or allergies get worse, and there is much sneezing, congestion, and general confusion.

August 11, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 308: Congested rambling - Link
In this podcast I ramble a bit about hoping for future games like Doom Eternal, as well as ponderings about a guild I joined recently in Elder Scrolls Online.
August 7, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 527) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

Still sneezy, still congested, and thoughts of death continue to haunt me.

August 1, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 526) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

I am still sneezy. And this week it's worse with a bit of fever.

July 24, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 525) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

Another big donation comes, and I pay the car registration in time. And, there is enough left to pay insurance, and my I.D. fee. With what's left I should be ok on gas for a while. Things start to settle back to 'homeless normal', and I try to recover from too much stress of the past few weeks.

July 21, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 307: Three free to play - Link
In this podcast I ramble a bit about three free to play mobile games I've been playing lately; Look, Your Loot!, Diamond Diaries Saga, and Toon Blast.
July 17, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 524) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

With only this week left until the registration is due I hope those who have regularly helped are watching and can send help in time, as it is beginning to feel like help may not come, which could very rapidly result in the need to sell my car, putting me in what feels like would be an impossible position to recover from. It seems all I can do is try to hang on until help comes.

July 10, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 11 (week 523) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 11 is up.

A wild bunny appears, cheering me up greatly. But I still have no idea how I'll pay for the car registration due in just two weeks.

July 3, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 and 11 (week 522) - Link
The last week of Epic Fail year 10 is up, and the start of Epic Fail year 11.

Year 10 comes to a close, and with it all that seemingly remains are troubles and worries as we enter year 11.

June 30, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 306: E3 thoughts - Link
In this podcast I ramble about what was revealed at E3; which games I'm looking forward to, and which I may not be.
June 26, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 521) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week comes and goes, and with no donations or paid surveys, it seems my already overdue car insurance will go critical, and getting enough to pay for registration in a few weeks will be unlikely.

June 19, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 520) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week dad's day comes and goes. I still regret how things have gone with my dad, but with him two states away I can't try to change things. And I don't know if he really cares to.

June 12, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 519) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week thanks to some donations the car insurance is again current, and for the next few months my phone can be on. But early in the week I get pretty sick, lowering my defenses against sad and fatalistic thoughts, and reminds me just how not normal my life feels.

June 6, '18 - Wednesday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 305: ESO: Summerset; a waterpark vacation - Link
In this podcast I talk about Elder Scrolls Online's Summerset expansion. I also ramble briefly about what I'm looking forward to for E3.

Note: In checking the schedule for E3 it looks like this year is shifted a bit and most news will probably be coming out Sunday and Monday.

June 5, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 518) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week one car insurance payment is made, keeping me under one full month behind. But the very next day the June one is due and I'm now ticking away on being behind on that, not to mention all the stress and worry of the car registration in a month and a quarter. So, very briefly, I have a little bit less stress. The pre-orders for the game and with it bring surprises, as well as some pondering about an item Id been trying to get since the expansion launched.

May 29, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 517) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week comes to a close, and we are only days away from my overdue car insurance being more than a month past due. It seems like help to pay it and keep it under a month will not come in time, if at all, and I worry things will rapidly crash after that if help doesn't make it in time.

May 22, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 516) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there is hope for fun, as my game I got on bunny day finally releases, but there is always worry about my overdue and upcoming bills, as I have no money at all for them, and gas continues to dwindle down to nothing.

May 19, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 304: A Destiny unfulfilled - Link
In this podcast I talk about Destiny 2's second expansion; Warmind. While it may be enough for the hardcore Destiny 2 player, the small zone, the quick completion of the quest line, and the extreme grind of new quests are more likely to drive off casuals than attract them or appease the masses on issues where they feel Destiny is lacking.
May 15, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 515) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week is especially sad and worrisome as I am nearly out of gas and have no monies to pay the overdue car insurance.

May 8, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 514) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week one bill is paid, but another becomes officially overdue, and I don't know how, or when, I'll be able to pay it. Hopefully help will come in time to take care of it.

May 1, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 513) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there is a lot of sickness and feeling out of sync with time. I suspect it is just an increasing effect of exhaustion and stress about upcoming bills.

April 28, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 303: A murderous puzzle - Link
In this podcast I talk about a free game I got for my tablet; Friday the 13th; Killer Puzzle. And I give a bit of an overview for the newest Starfinder book; Pact Worlds.
April 24, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 512) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

Promises for help, both to sign up for classes, and for general life needs, from now two people I know 'in real life' have seemingly fallen through and aren't going to happen. One morning seems odd and sitting in my car feels like home.

April 17, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 511) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week a bigger donation came through, so the overdue car insurance is paid. Promise from the professor is still unmet, so at this point I will put that out of my mind, as promised money from a source that's fallen through before may fall through again. Surprise cookies bring a smile in otherwise dark days.

April 10, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 510) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week is extra sad, as the school quarter approaches and I have no money to sign up for classes, nor even just a few dollars for laundry or doing a wash. It seems things are at an all time low, and there is little I can do but try to adapt and stay hopeful that help will come in time.

April 7, '18 - Saturday - rabb1t's ramblings podcast 302: Today - Link
In this podcast I ramble about Elder Scrolls Online and Overwatch a bit.
April 3, '18 - Tuesday - Epic Fail book 10 (week 509) - Link
The next week of Epic Fail year 10 is up.

This week there are a lot of sad feelings as the end of the quarter comes, and there are things unpaid.
