Summer vacation

It is finally time for my summer vacation. In my case it means three whole weeks off from work. Something I really look forward to. I am so sick of my job so this will be a welcomed break. But being sick of my job I do not know what I would work with if I didn’t worked with computers. I have no clue what I want to do or were I see myself in five years. Or I can see myself not working living the good life but that requires lots of money, something I do not have. So I will continue with my job for now, and enjoying my vacations when they come. I don’t really have any big plans for my vacation, just some boring stuff like cleaning out my garage and things like that. I will go on a short boat trip that I really look forward to. The boat is going in a canal and it will be really cool to go through the sluices. I just hope the weather will be good. It has been rather unsteady lately.

I was thinking that I would finish The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky during the summer, but I haven’t been playing that lately at all. I started plying Crashlands and I kind of really enjoy it so now I have played around 10 hours of it. I have kind of been looking for a game like it. One were you can build stuff, explore and have a bit of a story to follow. I am not sure how much more to the story it is at the point I am in, but hopefully there is a bit more. I also should play something on my NES mini Classic that I bought a while back. I feel kind of bad for not even having turned it on. I really have no excuse for why I haven’t used it, in the beginning I was waiting for some cable extenders for the controllers, but I got those pretty quick and still haven’t even turned it on. So I guess that is something I have to do. At least I need to start it before I get the SNES mini Classic that I booked.

DIY

There is no secret that I like to cross stitch, and I have tons of patterns. My computer is full of them and some of them I have even printed out. I think I have filled about three binders with patterns. Mostly the designs is from games and children TV shows that I watched when I was little. I have made about five patterns myself, the rest I have gotten from the Internet. Most of them comes from the Sprite Stitch forum (http://www.spritestitch.com/forum/). Which is just so good, there is such a huge community around making patterns inspired from games, movies, TV-series and such. I wish I were better at making patterns, and that I had the time to make more of them. It is really funny to make and its even more fun to actually stitch one that you made yourself. I am making a WoW inspired pattern with a quote from the movie and then the Horde and the Alliance logo. I haven’t gotten the logos at the right size and am struggling with it a bit, but haven’t made any work on the pattern for a long time so I should probably make an effort soon to get it done.

When I am watching TV-series and movies I like to cross stitch or make jewelry. I have also find out that its fun to put together 3D puzzles. I have Googled to see if there is anything else fun you can do and I found some DIY projects that looked fun and easy to do. I am really interested in doing floating teacups, but I need to buy everything to be able to do it. Only thing I don’t need to buy is a glue gun, because I bought one a couple of weeks back when I first started looking into DIY projects. It would be fun to be able to make floating teacups and other cool DIY things and sell. But I don’t know if people are even interested in buying stuff like that. So I am not sure if buying all the stuff is worth it. But I do want to make them since they look cool, so I will probably buy all the stuff I need for them.
