I Fall For Fall!

Hello, darkness, my old friend.

Table of Contents

This weather can’t seem to commit to a season lately- I don’t know if that’s just here in Ohio or if you guys are experiencing it everywhere. We had some awesome nights in the mid-50s, even staying sub-65 until 8 or 9 AM. Then it suddenly 180’d and dropped the hammer for this holiday weekend, sitting at a humidity-filled 95+ daily. NOT THE BEST TIME TO BE OUTSIDE.

I’d love to get an actual Fall season this year—maybe spend some weekends tooling around neighboring states to leaf-peep and do some hiking. MOTHER NATURE, IF YOU’RE LISTENING.

I know it’s not August anymore, but this is legit where my mind goes for September.

Let’s jump into the past week!

🏕️ Hashtag Survival Catchup

🖥️ Worked with Dee and Becca to update the directories! Featured images were updated, the info tab should be up to date and reflect any updated release dates- same with the calendar- and a few game listings have been updated as released…or dead.

📚 Getting my LEARN on by completing an OBS course from EposVox. I want to get back into working on some YT videos, but it’s been a hundred years since I made any recordings. Pretty sure I deleted all the scenes Becca set up for me, too. (I purchased it during the presale at a massive discount- but I’ll let ya know if it’s worth picking up!)

❣️Noteworthy Last Week

⌛ Did you back Rooted? Backers now have access to the NDA-locked Alpha test! For real, though- remember it’s under NDA; they will ban your ass. The developer of RTE Worlds held a livestream on Discord to showcase development progress! It was an exciting time- it looks like things have been moving, but I hope the next livestream will showcase survival features. Hopefully, with a bit of depth. Hey, you can now kick back with the Green Hell soundtrack.

📅 Upcoming

🔮 Stoked for HumanitZ release on September 18th. Some interesting responses from the development team of Forever Skies- most importantly, they’re still working on co-op.

💙 Diversions

🎵 Music: Ugh, I want to see this live! Hmm, ODESZA will be in Nashville next Friday. *intense thinking face*

‌➡️ App or Item: I typically read a fiction book every day- or every other day- so I bounce between the Libby, Books (Apple), and Kindle apps. I try to Libby my way to whatever title I plan on reading at the time, but often, a blend of I WANT IT NOW and a lack of availability push me into the purchase box. Does anyone have a preference for the platform? It’s pretty limiting that we can’t purchase from within the Kindle app while on the iPhone, but it's not the end of the world. I do find that I get a shit ton of free stuff via the Books app.

‌📚 Book: I know they’re young adult fiction, but if you like survival and books, you need to read Gary Paulsen's books.

‌🎮 Game: I’m back into WoW retail after a year away. It wasn’t even a walk of shame this time- I willingly climbed back in the saddle. It’s nice to have a game in a complete and different niche than my normal survival titles (even though it has crafting AND food!)- because it enables me to disconnect from anything that makes me think completely, which is a perk in this scenario.

‌#️⃣ Best Hashtag Moment: Substack subs are slowly climbing!
