    What things get you through the week? Or, put another way, what do you look forward to that comes out new every week? Or maybe what game(s) do you get a chance to play once a week that helps make your week more bearable?

    for me:
    Darths and droids - a tri-weekly web-comic. premise is star wars is a DND game. prequels are hilarious.


    The rest of my week is full of homework and adulting. And browsing GBATemp, naturally.

    I like playing those games that play themselves. You know, like neko atsume. Just check it every now and then small accomplishments throughout the day are achieved.

    Why are you close to losing it though?

    At various points I might have espoused my general philosophy of when it comes to doing things then never ask "why?" when "why not?" is usually a far better question. With that said I place no substantial amount of sense of self worth in anything really.

    Music because why not

    Well Sundays are usually quiet, Monday is getting all the paperwork out of the way, Tuesday is the best day to see my doctor, Wednesday is Zero Punctuation Day, Thursday sees the 3DS eShop update (apparently we get Breath of Fire 1+2 today), Friday is usually shopping day, Saturday is always waiting patiently for the new episode of RWBY Chibi.

    I know, right? How do I survive such a rollercoaster of excitement?

    There's an old proverb or something about a king who askes two boys two different tasks. The first is told to go count all the weeds in the kingdom. The second is asked to count all the flowers. The first comes back after his count on the verge of tears. He reports to the king "We have so many weeds. Our kingdom is a depressing wasteland!" The second reports that the kingdom has so many flowers that there can't possibly be a more beautiful kingdom in the country.

    TL;DR: if you look for reasons to be depressed you can find them. Same goes for happiness.

    Lots of little little things get me though the week. Since I play a lot of Destiny, reset day is always a good day. That's Tuesday at noon I think. Also around that time, PSN usually refreshes their sales page, so that's always fun to look at.
    Wednesdays during the winter, I shoot the 3 dot league at the archery range.
    Thursdays used to be my favorite day of the week. Thursday nights used to be spent at the church. I played drums for the worship band. Now, don't be so quick to write off worship music, they really let me rock those drums.
    The weekend used to be a high light simply because I would go visit the girlfriend at college but now that we are married, I get to see her all the time.

    There are lots of things that get me through the week, and I hope you all have your little things too. Life can be overwhelming.

    Considering I don't get paid to go to school, and I don't have much time to do things during the week. I guess the weekends? I set aside Saturday for some me time. Whether I have a shit ton of homework, or no homework, I don't even dare to think about school on a Saturday. I'll catch up on the anime that was aired during the week.

    I also look towards Sundays, since that's the day a new ReLife chapter gets released.
