Two weeks ago was the Volume 5 finale to RWBY. I am uploading this now to give people who do not have access to Rooster Teeth have an opportunity to watch on YouTube before having the possibility of spoilers. Thus, do not continue reading unless you are will to have something spoiled.
Another game that has been holding my attention lately has been Matchington Mansion. The basic premise is that an author leaves you her house after dying of old age, and you and your friend are fixing the house up. In other words, it is a Match-3 game. It is a concept that has been done a couple of times in different settings but for some reason, I love this one. It might have to do with the fact that the best friend has a likable personality or the fact that I don’t have to wait hours on end in order to play again. The levels also fluctuate in difficulty. After an especially difficult level, the difficulty slightly ramps down a little bit. Also, after introducing a new gameplay dynamic, the difficulty becomes easier before slowly ramping up again. I like the art style and story. Other games that I play with this style don’t have this story component, which means that I don’t have a need to go back. I have played a couple of these types of games, I usually become bored after a couple of days of play. This one, I have been playing for the last couple of weeks. I think the short refresh time helps keep my interest. I would definitely suggest this game. You can get it on Andriod, iOS, and different online platforms.
A mobile game that I come back to time and time again is Bakery Blitz. It is a game where you create different sweets for the impatient customers that come to your counter. The art style is cute and bubbly. The story that goes on in the background is also interesting, and from the updates that I’m seeing, the story is going to get juicier. So far, the people have forgotten what sugar is, and you have to remind the people of it. I also enjoy the different worlds you explore. Each one is based different sweets. Every character also has a different personality and a different design. I absolutely love it. From the worlds I have yet to explore, there are a ton of new characters to be introduced to and fall in love with. This is a game that even when I rage quit, I keep coming back to test my skills.
You can get this game from Andriod and on different online platforms.

A show that I remember watching with my mom all the time when it was on was Ghost Whisperer, so when I saw it on Hulu, I had to soak up the nostalgia. You can pretty much tell what the show is about from the name. It was a show that started up strong, and then towards the end, you could tell that it had started to dwindle. It was a show where I feel like they felt like they forgot the background plot line along the way. Two major antagonists disappeared off of the face of the Earth and were never mentioned again, even though they were a major part of the show. I also want to say that the last season was the weakest. They introduced a child character that was not written well at all. It was very hard to believe in him as a child character. They tried to make him to focus, but did not spend time developing him. He felt very stagnant and didn’t evolve over time. The first portion of the show was definitely the best. It was cheesy, but a good cheesy. The latter parts felt like they were running out of steam and had no clue what to do. It felt cheesy, but not in a good way. I watched some of the later episodes with Panda (my roommate for those of you who don’t know her), and she was flipping out. She can only tolerate so much cheesy, and she was not willing to suspend her disbelief, and I honestly don’t blame her. I might watch this show again at a later time, but I would personally stop towards the end of the fourth season. After that, I would spend the entire time rolling my eyes at the ridiculousness at some of it.
If there are anymore older shows that you would like for me to watch, feel free to tell me in the comments. I’m always looking for something new to watch. I’m a binging maniac.
For this upcoming semester at school, I have decided to update my uploading schedule for this blog. Instead of my trying to upload on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I have decided to change it Tuesdays and Thursdays. This will help me a whole bunch for the upcoming semester. Instead of worrying about trying to uploading three times a week, I will only have to worry about two times a week. This will take a huge load off my chest. If there is something really important that I want to talk about for the week, I’ll post it on Fridays at my usual time of 10am. This last semester at school was really hard for me, and I want to take this semester a bit easier for myself. I will start uploading under this new schedule next week. I hope that everyone understands. If there are any questions or comments, feel free to leave it in the comments section or email me about it.
