2017 was a heck of a year. Quite a bit has happened for me last year. Hear are five things that I remember most (no particular order).
Me meeting Nikki
Nikki and I have been social media friends for about a decade but late last year was our first time meet (for her birthday ironically). I got to meet her, her friends, and her son. All in all it was a great experience I won’t forget.
Nintendo Switch Line
This was kinda one I got dragged into but I’m glad I did. I somehow got second in line for the Nintendo Switch at Nintendo New York. I got to meet some cool people like CND, Etika, and many others. The wait can be stress sometimes, but in the end it was worth it.
Oh, and did I mention that Switch wasn’t for myself? But don’t worry I wound up getting one a few months later, which leads us to…
Me Getting a Switch for Myself
You know it was gonna happen.
Loss of Someone special
Five years ago I met someone would become something special to me. We had a lot of great moments but unfortunately I had to say goodbye. Still not over it.
First Hearthstone Tournament Win
To end off the year, I got my first ever tournament victory in Hearthstone ever. I put a lot of work in to make it happen. I still need to reach Legend in ranked though…
Well those are some key moments of my 2017. Let’s make 2018 even better.
Last week I competed in a Hearthstone tournament at the Waypoint Cafe. It was my first HS tournament of any kind in a few years but it feels good get back in it.
This was also Waypoint’s first Fireside Gathering (meaning I couldn’t get the no Warlock hero) and I was glad to take part. For the tournament, I brought these four decks: Highlander Priest, Exodia Mage, Zoo, and Pirate warrior.
Highlander Priest: This is a deck that I used to get one of my highest ranks in ladder. It’s pretty much like other Highlander Priests. Except this one has Hungry Crab to deal with Murloc Paladin, which I did not see in this tournament.
Exodia Mage: I like playing this deck. This is pretty much simple. Stall out the game long enough to draw all you combo pieces to Extended Turn Kill the opponent. It got banned 3 of my four matches. The tournament version I have Acolyte of Pain as one of my draw cards while Coldlight Oracle sometimes takes it’s place in ladder.
Zoo Warlock: This deck does some heavy lifting for me in ladder. It pretty much the basic Zoo for its season except mine has Pince Valanar which is a taunt and lifesteal. My deck still had Keleseth in there as well.
With these decks made it though the tournament without losing a set. My toughest opponent was a JetLaw, lawyer that sported a legend card back.
It’s feels so good to have my first tournament victory in Hearthstone.
This week I released a video where my friend Meredith (AnimeMerfox7) and I shop at Walmart for some Pokémon Cards. We find a Darkrai tin and did an opening at a nearby mall!
What you see here is the first of two videos. The second video is coming soon!
After all the news I subscribed to MoviePass! Does it work? Check out the video to find out!
Spoiler: It does work.
As you may know. I was second in line to get a Nintendo Switch at midnight launch. That system was for a friend not for myself, however. And with the Switch being in such high demand I went a while without one.
But during the week, I was able to purchase one! Yes!
Below is of me opening the box for the Nintendo Switch. Enjoy!
I have received a complementary Gents Vox Box from Influenster for testing purposes earlier in the Summer. Not that I am done testing the products inside, I will now tell you those products.
Barbasol Shaving Cream and Razor: I have use the Barbasol shaving cream before but it was my first time using the razor. When the shaving cream provides a nice lather for its pricing. The six-blade razor gave me a shave I never would have expected and edging blade is a nice touch.
Frank’s Red Hot Sauce: This hot sauce is the perfect combination of flavor and spice and it goes well with my favorite foods. I would definitely recommend.
Kettle Chips: The potato chips have a unique taste to it. It wasn’t a flurry of salt so that’s a plus.
Bed Hed: I rarely put wax in my hair (or lack thereof) but I like the product. The hold was nice in neat and the mess was minimal.
That’s wraps up my review of the Gents Vox Box! Thank you Influenster for letting me test these products!
