I’m feeling so much better this week! For a week or so, I was in a depression-like funk where I just didn’t want to do anything, but I’m back to normal now and it’s great!
I played Skyrim for a day last week, but I didn’t have a lot of time to play it; school kept me busy. But, because I have a few long breaks during classes, I was able to complete Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword. I’ll post a review of it shortly. With that game completed, I began a new one. I was restless one night and decided that I haven’t posted about a Game Boy Advance game. I looked through my collection and came upon Phantasy Star Collection. I purchased it from a friend a year or so ago and never played it. It contains the first three Phantasy Star games and I’ve been playing oodles of Phantasy Star before going to bed each night. Grinding was tedious early on but it’s gotten to be somewhat enjoyable.
Yesterday, my family and I visited Bentonville, Arkansas to see the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The facility was superb and inside was a fairly large collection of art, with a little bit of everything – artwork of famous Americans circa the Revolutionary War to eye-catching art installations. It’d take a few hours to see everything and there’s plenty of trails on the grounds, but those aren’t great when the weather is nearly freezing. My only complaint with the place is the lack of parking close to the facility. This wouldn’t be such a big deal in warmer weather, but walking a quarter mile in freezing weather isn’t pleasant.
