Ah, the last Nerd Girl Goals of 2021. I am very much looking forward to changing at least a few things up in the coming year, but for now, let’s talk about December, the month of “nothing ever goes according to plan”!
Paid MMO – World of Warcraft (Retail)
Really, my only goal for December is to be present for our raid groups’ next Sylvanas kill. Sure, there’s lots of stuff I can (and maybe even should) be working on, but I’m not going to put a whole lot of pressure on myself at the time of year I’m most prone to burn out of every type. I may finally get around to the rest of the 9.1 story, I might just fool around in BFA Islands, or I may just raid-log this month. Any of that is going to be fine with me.
Community Game-Along – #SimulatorGameDec
Picking a main “goal” game under the Simulation umbrella was hard – my library in this genre is deep. However, I’ve been procrastinating starting up Planet Zoo, so I decided to put that at the top of the list for the month.
Subscription Game Service – XBox GamePass for PC
However, I also expect I’ll be playing some Evil Genius 2: World Domination as well on GamePass this month. I have fond memories of the Evil Genius game from 2004, but I don’t really remember ever getting very far. I don’t honestly know what to expect from this one – reviews have been all over the place, there’s a bunch of weird paid DLC, and … I’m not sure I’m enthused enough about it to drop real money on it. Which, really, is exactly why I keep my GamePass sub most of the time.
As has become my habit, I am not adding anything else significant to my December goals. What I do want to make some time to do, however, is make some notes about what I’d like to change about the blog in the coming year. I really enjoyed the posts I did during Blaugust about what was working for me, and what ideas I had that didn’t really pan out the way I’d hoped. I am finding that I’m not putting the energy into this that I would prefer to be, and some of that is just getting in my own way.
