October has been one wild ride. Not only did I get together with college friends, but I also traveled out of the state via plane (two different places) for the first time since pre-pandemic.

Fall & Friends

One of my college friends has a cabin about an hour north of my house, and we all got together for our fall get-together (we try to get together every fall). The fall colors were just beginning, so we hiked through the state park that ran near the cabin.



Ologies: Still going strong with this podcast

Best Friends Back Alright: In preparation for Mythicon (which I’ll talk about later), I decided to give a listen to Stevie and Neageen’s podcast, and oh. my. gosh. I’m in love.


Midnights – Taylor Swift: Nothing else is more important than Taylor Swift’s new album Midnights. There’s nothing else I have to say here.


Fortnite: As always, I’ve been grinding away at the Fortnite Battle Pass because the top reward is Spider Gwen.

Valheim: When this game first was released, I played over 60 hours. I feel in love with the Minecraft vibes combined with Vikings. I only stopped playing because I had a senior computer science capstone to complete. Fast forward to now and Richard’s friends are just discovering the game, and they were kind enough to add me to their server.

Phasmophobia: This is a game that I also put a lot of time in when it first came out, but later updates made it harder to play. Recently, the game was overhauled and now it is 100% better, so my friends and I decided to celebrate spooky season with some ghost hunting.

Coming Out Day

October 11th was Coming Out Day, and I got to celebrate with the Spectrum Alliance Club as their new co-advisor. We gave out fun stickers and pins to celebrate the day.


One of the bigger things that happened this month was attending my first conference as a professional staff IN PERSON. Two of my coworkers and I attended Educause which was located in Denver, Colorado. This conference was aimed at anyone working in Higher Ed Technology. The size of it was very overwhelming, but I did get some great take-aways to bring back with me.


The other big event that happened was Mythicon. My partner Richard and I decided to attend as our anniversary and Christmas gifts to each other. For those that aren’t familiar with it, Mythicon was a convention put on by Mythical Entertainment aka Rhett and Link, the same company/people reasonable for my favorite show Good Mythical Morning. Mythicon was a weekend long event in Austin, Tx, and it featured both Rhett and Link and a number of the Mythical crew members. To prevent this from becoming an even longer blog post, I’m going to write a separate blog post. I will link that here when it’s ready 🙂
