Picking the Right Romance Option

Hey folks. Sorry things have been a little quiet around here recently. For the handful of you waiting for the next instalment of The Very Best, Like No One Ever Was, I can confirm that I've started working on it and will hopefully get it finished and posted at some point over the long Easter weekend. I'm also sorry for not being able to take part in this year's Community Endurance Run, but I've been a bit preoccupied these past couple of weeks.

No Caption Provided

Last weekend, six years to the day since we got together and exactly one year since we proposed to each other, I married my fiancée Alice. It was a beautiful ceremony, held at a local pub and with about thirty-five family and friends in attendance. Unfortunately my parents were unable to attend, as they tested positive for Covid the week before the wedding day, but thankfully we were able to set up a video link so they could watch the ceremony live and be present in some capacity. Besides that one issue though, I wouldn't have changed a thing. We've just returned from a five-night honeymoon on the beautiful south coast of England. Tomorrow, we return to the reality of our jobs and other responsibilities. But for a few more precious hours, the magic of that moment lingers on, and I feel compelled to share it with my other family - the Giant Bomb community.

Looking back over my old blog posts, it's funny seeing just how much of my life I've documented on this website over the last fourteen years. From leaving my family home and heading off to university at age eighteen, to the trials and tribulations of student life and my first serious adult relationship, to the difficulties of leaving education and entering the workforce as an overstretched and underpaid member of the NHS, to welcoming new family members and mourning the loss of old ones, right up to this very moment. While I've always tried to keep my entries focused on the games first and foremost, it's often been impossible to divorce what I've been playing at any given time from the circumstances in which those games were played. Almost half my life has unfolded between the four-hundred and thirty blog posts that make up this little corner of the internet, and a lot has changed in that time, especially myself. Who knows what other changes are yet to come? Whatever unfolds, you can be sure it'll be documented here, somewhere between the video game experiences that punctuate this little thing called life. Take care folks, and I'll see you around.
