Happy New Year and 2013 Retrospective!

Lets hope for great things to come, or better yet, take a note from the fabulous Captain Picard and make it so! I have to say that I am finding this to be excellent advice and am using it as motivation to work on various projects I have been thinking about for a while now.

But enough about the future, there is all of 2014 ahead to make plans (see me already procrastinating). Properly closing out 2013 calls for a retrospective, or at least a rundown of stats. =)

2013 TFG numbers:

66 posts
5 reviews
18 unreviewed games. ~sigh~
1132 gaming hours tracked
236 Books read, which amounts to 54,325 pages.

Not really as bad as I had expected, especially since I suffered a major “I dont wanna” episode (aka writing burn out!) in 2013. Though I don’t think I can maintain the 10-30 posts a month, I have recovered enough that I am actually looking forward to updating a bit more frequently. Maybe time to tackle that not reviewed list. Eek.

Clearly I played enough games, with just over 47 days (1132hours/24days) of gaming time clocked on raptr. Well that answers the mystery of what I was doing instead of writing reviews, gaming and reading books.

Yes, many books, many pages. Of course, over one hundred of the 236 I read are manga, and though I don’t want to disparage graphic novels, because I love them, I can finish one 200-page manga a bit faster then a comparably long novel. And I’m a fast reader, so maybe the numbers make the time commitment seem a bit more extravagant.

Well that sums up 2013 neatly, mostly anyway, since I didn’t keep track of boardgames at all. Suffice it to say that my collection has grown.

But onward to 2014, the future is here!!

    You haven’t seen Personal stats until you’ve seen these: http://mikeshea.net/2013_review.html

    Wow!! Thats a lot of gaming time logged there Dev. Sometimes I think that maybe logging my playtime is not the most encouraging thing of all time. Makes me wonder what I could have accomplished in all that time. Hehe.

    @Bill, okay those stats are excessive, but also impressive. =D

  4. Deveryn Says:

    Yeah, it’s definitely telling me I should do less of that and more important things like processing my photos faster.

    Nice numbers! All that manga reading seems to have gone to your hair! :D

    I didn’t get a chance to comment on your manga purge post, but I suspected something like that was up when I saw the massive amount of manga hit your goodreads stream. A pity more of them weren’t good but I guess that’s why you’re purging them :)

    Are you going to the Edwardian Ball? It’s this weekend. I’m going on Sat.

    This weekend!!! Damn, why do these things sneak up on me all the time?!!?
    I will try for saturday but I can’t promise anything. No idea what to wear either.

    Most of the manga purge was indeed stuff that I wasn’t terribly attacked too, but I’m also wiser then when I first read them all, which probably makes me more irritated with all the flaws. =)
