Depo Provera Made Me Sick

Years ago, (somewhere in the early 2000s) I decided to start using a hormonal birth control. After doing some research, I thought that Depo Provera would be a good choice.

It is administered by shot every three months, and is one of the most effective forms of birth control. Unfortunately for me, Depo Provera made me very sick – and the side effects are still here all these years later.

Warning: This blog post is going to contain a lot of what many may feel is “too much information”. It is probably not something everyone will feel comfortable reading. This post is also very long.

Seekers Notes: Magic of Music Event

Seekers Notes is a puzzle game with an engaging storyline. The town of Darkwood is cursed, and the player (who becomes The Seeker) must find a way to fix that problem. It is a dark and creepy game with lovely artwork.

This involves picking up quests from a variety of NPCs (non-player characters) who ask The Seeker to find a specific item. The player goes to a certain location and tries to find all the hidden objects before time runs out. There’s a chance the requested item will appear after the player completes a location.

The Magic of Music Event is a holiday event that appears right around (American) Thanksgiving Day. The event only lasts for a limited time. I decided to make a few blogs about my progress through this event.

Book Reviews, fiction 0 comments on Gone Girl – by Gillian Flynn

Gone Girl – by Gillian Flynn

Nick and Amy Dunne have what appears (from the outside) to be a perfect marriage. Both of them make their living as writers – for different publications. Both are good looking and visually appear to be a good match. Gone Girl is the story of what happens when a marriage ends – and the wife suddenly disappears.

Gillian Flynn is the author of Sharp Objects, which became a New York Times Bestseller. Gone Girl is not a sequel to Sharp Objects. Both stories have plenty of twists and turns, which leave the reader guessing about what is really going on.

This is definitely one of those books that is difficult to review because of the chance of unintentionally revealing spoilers.

Kitchen Scramble App: Fallwoods

Fallwoods is an “extra” town in the Kitchen Scramble app.  It appears for a limited amount of time. Players must complete it before time runs out.

Fallwoods is focused on Thanksgiving foods. Players get an oppertunity to practice each one before starting a level. Those who make it all the way to the end of this town earn a unique appliance that carries over into the regular game.

Holiday Events, World of Warcraft 0 comments on Riglee Finishes Hallow’s Eve

Riglee Finishes Hallow’s Eve

Hallow’s End is my favorite of all the World Events in World of Warcraft. I’ve been slowly working my way through it with my main, Riglee (a Gnome Death Knight). The main problem was that she was always too low a level to even try and earn some of holiday related achievements.

This year, Riglee was somewhere around Level 96 or so when Hallow’s End started. I was able to get her through almost all of the Hallow’s End achievements – with one exception. Riglee hit Level 99 near the end of the World Event, and needed to be Level 100 in order to find Scarecrow Pepe in her Garrison.

Jen’s Lore Corner: Rondal and Marta – Episode 008

Welcome to Jen’s Lore Corner, a podcast about the lore of the Diablo video game series. This podcast started as a segment on the Shattered Soulstone podcast. I decided to re-release those segments in their own podcast, with new episodes to follow.

In this episode, I talk about two NPC’s (non-player characters) who are in Bastion’s Keep. Rondal and Marta are a couple, and have been through a lot together. Their story weaves itself around what we already know about the history of Sanctuary.

My Thoughts on Diablo Immortal and BlizzCon 2018

I was fortunate enough to attend BlizzCon 2018 in person, (thanks to help from a friend). It was my third BlizzCon, and I had so much fun hanging out with friends and talking with people in the Diablo community – some of whom I was meeting for the first time.

In this blog post, I wanted to share my thoughts about Diablo Immortal, how it was announced at BlizzCon, and the reaction of fans of the Diablo series of games. I’m well aware that this blog could easily attract people who are upset, disappointed, and/or still enraged by the whole situation. Be aware that comments on this blog are moderated.
