Miss Mallory Meredith's Misinterpretations and Follies (Obscenities Included!)

I have six posts, most of them long, that I never finished nor published since coming back to the states from my adventures overseas.

I have a couple about my hiking and walking, a few about the hard times I’ve had coming back to America, and the last two being attempts to find a general love for life and people when there seems to only be an aggressive hatred for anything that exists. Read the rest of this entry »

For the past seven months, I have been traveling the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe. I was excited for my new adventure—hellbent on the hiking I’d be doing, as well as the many different sights I’d get to see roaming each town I passed through. There are many pros to traveling on your own, and I was eager to jump on all of them, but a hefty con was the human interaction.

One of the largest myths of gaming, I think, is that gamers have an aversion to social interaction. If that were always true, how are MMOs and co-op gaming some of the most sought-after games? Halo, World of Warcraft, Minecraft, and even Mario Kart 8 are all fantastic examples, and that isn’t even getting into board games. And please tell me you’ve heard of San Diego…

Rise of the Tomb RaiderYou’ve snuggled into bed, the blankets are warm, the pillows are comfy, and the sun is peaking out from under your curtains to warm your face. That’s when you wake up with a gasp because, guess what? Those huge gaming sales you kept telling yourself you’d get to are now over. Now you’re going to have to pay full price, or wait until it goes on sale again, which could be a lifetime.

I may have just been projecting myself onto you. Deadlines have rarely been my friend, and that includes video game sales. I can’t tell you how many times my head has popped up off of my pillow when I realize I couldn’t get that last minute deal on a game I’ve been debating over due to its price simply because I waited too long.

If you’ve missed the sales, too, don’t worry—they’re still about. And there…

One of the toughest things about traveling the world alone is hearing the news from where you left. It isn’t because you necessarily miss what you ultimately flipped off, burnt, then pissed on the ashes. Although, the imagery is clear.

I’ve burned a lot of things in my day.

The thing about Spain is that it isn’t France.

I don’t mean this in a terrible way. Except that I do. In a sense.

When I first sat myself down to pack my bags for a dual trip, I didn’t pack everything in the pack first. Instead, I decided to see whether I could put my Tetris skills into play by setting out everything I wanted to bring and figured would fit.



And then I’d have to start all over again.
