A Memorable 2018

Another year has come and gone. I do not have a lot to share. I wrote some stuff this year, but I did not share. Most of it is in various stages of editing. Some of it is just way too fucking long, and I bit off more than I could chew. One of them was a ten year analysis of me using Steam. It is a very in depth look at the games I have bought on Steam since I started using it. I got to 2014, and it was very long and very boring. Another post I would … Continue reading

Contentment: The Dream

What is the difference between being content and being stuck in a rut? I feel like it is a state of mind. I want to address the last post. It may have been difficult to see, but I was in a dark place a few weeks ago. As I said, I felt like I was stuck in a rut. I’ve never been depressed, but I feel like I was going down the path the leads to depression. How did I go from simply being content to being stuck in a rut? I have always had goals in my life. I … Continue reading

Archiving For A Purpose

I began archiving my old Blogspot blog today. I’m not really sure why. Google has kept it alive for a very long time, and they haven’t announced anything about shutting it down. I think I’m archiving it because it gives me something web design related to do. I don’t like dealing with the design aspects of WordPress, but I really like all of the features and plugins. As a result, I use a theme I can kinda customize, and keep it as is. The archive process for the old blog is a similar process as when I archived my old … Continue reading

Burn Out Leads to Emotion

I needed a little break after writing Games of 2017. It was a lot of work putting the post together. I didn’t mean to take a break for month. However, I am feeling a little burned-out. I started writing blog posts when I was fifteen; I was in 9th grade. In 2003, Myspace was gaining traction, but everyone I knew had a blog. I had a Blogger blog. When I first started, I posted almost everyday, sometimes multiple times a day. In 2003, I posted five blog posts; first post was on December 29th. In 2004, I posted a whopping … Continue reading

I Care

Note 01/29/2018: I wrote this July 22, 2017. Two days after the death of Chester. I wrote it, saved it, and closed it. I knew I wanted to publish it, but I was not ready at the time. I looked at it for the first time to edit it after 2017 – Raw Hindsight was published. I edited it before posting, but with the intent to keep the raw emotion intact. I actually shed tears while editing this article; I also smiled. I did not want to rewrite it from my January 2018 perspective. That would ruin the therapy. -Royfuss … Continue reading

2017 – Raw Hindsight

The year 2017 might be the shittiest year of my life. I try to stay positive. I really felt bad for people who said 2016 was the worst year of their life. It seemed like everyone on social media was complaining about it. 2016 was a great year for me. I wish the good fortune would have continued. Life just kept handing me lemons, and I could not keep up. Every month, a new “fuck you!” surfaced. Every month, my positivity dwindled. After work one day in January 2017 my dad tells me my mom is in the emergency room. … Continue reading

2018 – The Starting Point

A healthy part of experiencing tragedy is to create and achieve goals for yourself. Making sure your life moves forward despite what happened. Last year, I told myself I need to get back into reading. I have finished three books since November, and just started a fourth. I plan on continuing to find the time to read, even though I probably will not reach the frequency I did in middle school and high school. Also last year, I made a goal to work on the backlog of shows I want to watch. Now, the only Marvel Netflix show I have … Continue reading

Wolfenstein: The New Order

Three and a half months. This is the amount of time since my last update. It’s also the amount of time since I’ve done anything related to writing, which isn’t good for my sanity. You can look at my past, and notice several lapses in my posting, but I usually do writing in between posts. The recent lapses in posting (late 2014) involves a personal writing project. This writing project is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I finished the writing portion around the time I posted “Games of 2014.” That post was also a massive … Continue reading

Update Dump

I’ve been doing other writing projects these past few months, so I haven’t posted anything here. My goal is to do some writing at least once a week, which I would like to be on this blog, but time is finite. You’ll have a chance to check out my labors in the next few weeks. I don’t want to announce anything prematurely (Me? No! I never do that). I figured I should do an update dump for you. Let’s start at current events, and move backwards. I plan was to do another album review this evening, but that plan changed … Continue reading

The Sunrise

A full moon on Friday the 13th isn’t all that impressive when clouds blanket the sky. What is impressive is being out at 5:00 in the morning the very next day and seeing the night’s sky lit up by a full moon in one direction, and the aura of the sun emerging from the other; the clouds dissipating  long enough for me to enjoy this spectacle. It may be because I was up for almost 24 hours, but I thought it was lovely. Lovely enough for me to prolong my lack of slumber for a few more minutes by driving … Continue reading
