    Been a decent year for my bucket list! I managed to tick off:

    • get married
    • go to Eurovision
    • go on a cruise

    Also started work on my first “real” video game, been learning how to make them as a hobby since 2020. Releasing that sometime next year will be another thing ticked off the list!

    We have had a lot of crap stuff happen as well though (health stuff and whatnot) and it’s just generally been a very stressful and disrupted year so I’ll be glad to see the back of it despite all the good that happened.

      Lucky you going to Eurovision, how did you feel about Sweden getting the win? I know Finland was the fan favourite, and I read that apparently the crowd made that clear on the night

        We didn’t get tickets for the actual live final, so had a party house rented a short drive out of Liverpool along with some friends for the Saturday night. Can confirm even the ones that started the night thinking they didn’t care about Eurovision were shocked by the end!

        Loreen is a legend but that song was just not great. So many others deserved it over her and it’s a bit depressing that the jury members chosen have such consistently bland tastes every year.

        But also, like, it’s a song contest. I may be obsessed, I may have an ever-growing group of US friends I’ve introduced to the spectacle, I may learn all the words to songs in languages I don’t understand and I may have sewn myself a special flag dress for Liverpool. But it’s a song contest, I’m not actually furious about it like some people were 😅

        It’s just a really simple hex-based city builder. Very minimal, barely even a game really. Suitable first project for a solo dev I’m hoping!
