2019 November

A bit overwhelmed by the world at the moment. Time for a break. My outrage will return in the future.

Brawl is the most fun I’ve had playing #mtg arena since it started. I play it even when I’m out of rewards for the day because it’s so fun, even against the Oko decks (I won this one!)
#inktober2019 day 24: dizzy #inktober #sketchdaily
Current desktop images (Windows 10 PC and Macbook Air). I’ve been toying with the idea of dual-booting my PC with Ubuntu because reasons (and also I miss having an Ubuntu desktop to toy around with), and I figured maybe I should document my current setup first before I try something that might end in disaster. Both of the pictured wallpapers are from here. Also, yes I am generally bad at cleaning my desktops of icons.

#inktober2019 day 20: tread (lightly) #inktober #sketchdaily Amazingly fighter dude found another dungeony place in the middle of the overgrown jungle. It’s also amazing that I’m only one day behind with this whole thing
#inktober2019 day 19: sling #inktober #sketchdaily
#inktober2019 day 18: misfit #inktober #sketchdaily I’m currently taking suggestions for how to handle the day 20 prompt lol

#inktober2019 day 15: legend #inktober #sketchdaily maybe phoning it in a bit here lol. some of the green bled through from the last one
No #inktober for me today because reasons, but our quiz team did win the #popquizph and #geekfightph crossover! We won some swag and also Mystic Vale! #boardgames
#inktober2019 day 14 overgrown #inktober #sketchdaily lol so i found these colored markers and thought i could use them to show like a jungle-y area overgrown with vines but these lines are way thicker than i expected so this was way better in my head. A…
#inktober2019 day 13: ash #inktober #sketchdaily I briefly considered just having the dragon burn all three so that the series is finished but instead here they are falling into a ravine lol
2nd ELD draft. This archetype is great (maybe until the bots find out about it), but I only went 6-3 due to a misplay #mtg
#inktober2019 day 12: dragon #inktober #sketchdaily
#inktober2019 day 11: snow #inktober #sketchdaily i thought about ending the series thing with the last one and just doing one offs for the rest of the month but here we are
Pretty sweet #mtg arena pulls
#inktober2019 day 10 pattern (a bit of a stretch) #inktober #sketchdaily also i probably overdid the blood
#inktober2019 day 9: swing #inktober #sketchdaily so many panels! and so tiny!
#inktober2019 day 8: frail #inktober #sketchdaily this one didnt turn out as well as i imagined it would
#inktober2019 day 7: enchanted #inktober #sketchdaily I retconned wizard dude to have glasses
#inktober2019 day 6: husky #inktober #sketchdaily
#inktober2019 day 5: build #inktober #sketchdaily 😴
#inktober2019 day 4: freeze #inktober #sketchdaily this one is coming in late because i was busy. in case my drawing was too terrible, that is supposed to be a person encased in ice (presumably because of stepping on a freezing trap)
#inktober2019 day 3: bait #inktober #sketchdaily If you’ve been following along and you think I’m trying to make this a series and that I have a plan for where this is going, you are only half right

I ate at Nathan’s the other day. Pretty good, but you’re still basically paying US price for a hotsog

My #mtg arena beta stats email finally came in. 437 packs opened isn’t too bad for a f2p account, considering I was able to build a few top tier standard decks and even hit mythic once.
Did an #mtg eldraine paper prerelease as well today Went 3-0-1 with this pile

Went 5-3 with my first Eldraine sealed. Not bad, but not very good either =/ #mtg
2 of my losses were to Garruk and Oko so ¯_(ツ)_/¯
From the linked article:
Quoted berkun’s tweet:
 “This is what kind of species we are: we are stupid, we are negligent, we are tardy. But on the other hand, we are adaptable, we are smart and even as things are falling apart, we are trying to stitch them together.” https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/sep/21/vaclav-smil-interview-growth-must-end-economists?CMP=share_btn_tw
SSHD came in today, looking good so far
I just found out that my most upvoted reddit submission is the Denise/Denephew joke and that’s super on brand.
