Elvenar - playing the fantasy game.

Image
I am now of the one of the millions of addicted gamers. True. I'm playing a game called Elvenar which is a fantasy city builder. A friend of mine introduced me to it and since then I've spent countless hours playing it.

It's time like this, I'm happy I've got a day job as that gives me a rest. It is truly addictive however in  way it's a strategy game.

So it starts off very easy and progressively gets difficult. I'm on level two and this is where strategy comes in. And boy does strategy play a part.

I guess the aim is to build a big and powerful city where a owner or gamer can form alliances. I'm far from the level.

Oh dear, yes, I thought I should do one. I'm sheepish about it because frankly a lot of things have dropped off the way side.

So I set a few goals in January which I publicly blogged about. As normal with these things real life gets in the way and things happen. I had very grand plans....oh well let's see what happened.

List of 2016 Goals

Catching up - Life as an Associate, Seeing Ghostface Killah and Busta Ryhmes in London Concert

Hello Everyone,
It’s been a while since I last blogged and journaled. About two months.
Life As An Associate I became a qualified professional after a very long time of study, giving up wasn’t option since that was my professional. Anyway I’m still at my workplace, pay grade still the same but I’m still learning and development so not treading water in terms of that. I’m also more confident and without the burden of study, more relaxed. So it’s been good. 
I also had to do a continuous professional developments so I’ve attended a few interesting workshops -networking, leadership skills and productive ninja. I’ll make a note to post a few notes on them.
So far, so good. It’s nice to be qualified.
