World Keratoconus Day: My Blurry Life #Keratoconus

Keratoconus (keh-rah-toe-cone-us) affects your cornea, the clear dome-shaped window at the front of your eye. Your cornea focuses light into your eye to help produce a clear image.

Online Gaming: Why Stats Don’t Mean Anything

Online gaming can be great. You get to play a game you enjoy with others who do so, you could meet friends, maybe even a partner online, I’ve read stories about that many a time! Sadly, people, me included at one stage, take online gaming far too seriously.
I’ve seen people in gaming groups I’m in only requesting the highest of rank players to join them, people get toxic to new players who are trying to learn the ropes, people will abuse the system to boost their ranks, to name a few examples.

Today I’m going to be talking about why I believe the online stats are not worth the aggro.

The Mandela Effect: Things I Remember Differently 🤔

The Mandela effect can be summed up as a large segment of the population recalling something they have seen being different to what they are actually seeing. This could be a scene in a movie, a design, an event, or anything along those lines. The phenomenon was named after Nelson Mandela, who many believed actually died while he was in prison in the 1980’s, he passed away in 2013. It is theorised that people with differing memories have swapped from a universe where their version of the memory was correct.

Of course, a lot of this stuff can be chalked up to false memories. Memory itself isn’t reliable and can change over time, it can also be altered. It is fun to speculate, though. Maybe it’s real, maybe it isn’t. It is fun to speculate. 😆 There are things I remember differently. If you want to read more about the Mandela Effect, click here.

Pokémon Go: Thoughts on the “Colossal Discovery” event

Yesterday was the Colossal Discovery event on Pokémon Go. This was a pay to play event, costing myself and my partner £7.99 a piece, we play the game enough to justify it, though. Plus, going out to play Pokémon Go is one of our favourite things to do together. 💕

Gate Keeping in the Gaming Community: Does Difficulty Really Matter?

I have seen a few “you’re not a real gamer if” posts floating around on the internet, so it got me wondering, does it matter what difficulty you actually play games on? It seems to me that gate keeping within the community seems to be growing stronger by the day, which baffles me. We all share the same interest as gamers, we might not all enjoy the same things, but we play games.

Happy Halloween: My Favourite Horror Movies!

I had more for the spooky season planned for this blog, but a combination of fatigue, mental health struggles, and life in general threw a spanner in the works there. So I just nixed it.
Instead, I’ll be talking about my favourite horror movies, this list isn’t in any particular order.

There’ll be spoilers and some gore, so I’ll put a “read more” divider in, so read at your own risk! ✌

Emotional Support Animals: Meet Rob & Danny!

While the UK doesn’t really recognise emotional support animals as a valid thing, it won’t stop me from calling my new pets emotional support animals.

Back in September, Ben & I went into Pets at Home. I can’t remember why, but we saw Rob in the adoption centre. I was just drawn to him, so we adopted him. We waited 2 weeks and hoped to adopt another guinea pig for company, there weren’t any available for adoption at the time, so we bought Danny from Pets at Home, I am always an advocate for adopting over shopping, but it just wasn’t feasible at this time. Guinea pigs are social animals so we needed to get him a little brother.
