Back to My Writing

yuriko/ April 12, 2019/ writing/ 0 comments

Ever since I was little, I’ve loved stories. Now, I didn’t say I loved reading… Although, reading is usually the way to absorb stories. And since most of the time, I was bored of someone else’s ramblings, I have been a writer. I’m not saying that I’m perfect, because I’m a realist and I know myself. I just think that

Game of Thrones

Yes, I’m still here… although I’ve missed a few letters (E and F – because I couldn’t think of anything worth while to write about), I  knew I couldn’t leave G alone.  Especially since we’re one week away from the final season of an epic TV show. I’m not really going to spin fan theories or wax on about what’s

Developing a Story

yuriko/ April 4, 2019/ 2019, Blogging Challenge/ 2 comments

I tend to write by the seat of my pants.   I don’t normally outline,  plot out paths,  or otherwise think ahead when I write something.   Case in point,  this blog post.  I really should have planned out my topics beforehand,  but I thought it’d be easy.  Wrong!   Oh, so wrong! So my topic for today is developing a story.   Yes,

C is for CERT

I grew up in the Bay Area if California and was present during the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989.  That day,  I was in class at SF State and I was scheduled to have my creative writing class that Tuesday evening,  but it was cancelled,  which allowed me to get home right before the earth shook.   I remember not really

It’s about time I start yammering on about Game of Thrones,  isn’t it?   After all,  my life had been empty until I found the series.  😅 Just kidding.   I did have a life before Game of Thrones and I’m sure I’ll have a life after it’s over. But this isn’t necessarily about Game of Thrones.   This is about Brienne,  my

All right, I thought I had this blog challenge beat!  I was ready a week and a half ago when I posted about it.  I had everything in my head… but then it all fell out of my head before I could write anything down.  Yes, sad face.  So, I’ve been scrambling for the last week at ideas that I

Looking for a Challenge

yuriko/ March 22, 2019/ 2019, Blogging Challenge/ 0 comments

In an attempt to jump-start the blogging, I thought about what I wanted to talk about. But unfortunately, I don’t seem to think that I have a vast archive of knowledge to share with the world. I doubt anyone really cares about my opinion of Game of Thrones or why drivers should have their headlights on when driving in the

Hello! from the Other Side

I’ve decided to finally bite the bullet to have my own site. I’m not quite sure what I’ll have here, other than my random thoughts or updates on projects. I’m sure I’ll end up with a page of favorite sites or organizations, which deserve recognition. I’m also pretty sure I’ll continue to post about games I’ve played from a casual

Dice Hate Me

In a previous post, I spoke about how games have changed since your grandparents were your age.  I may be dating myself, here, but I remember growing up with Monopoly, Clue, and Battleship.  These are still popular games today, and yet, people don’t turn to them as the first choice of entertainment?  Why, I asked myself, would mainstream board games

Create Awesome

I borrowed the catchphrase from Roberto Blake. He’s a YouTube creator, whom I stumbled upon the other day while I was looking for some free graphic design tutorial sessions on YouTube. I was very impressed with his video because he had a certain presence that imbued confidence and knowledge. This led me to one of his podcasts, which I am
