February 2018 Favorites

As an effort to keep myself motivated to write more on this blog, and also inspired by different YouTube channels that I’m subscribed too. Starting forward I’m going to be posting a monthly blog post which I will briefly share all the interesting things I did each month. This can includes but not limited too:

  • Books I read
  • Video games I played
  • Any new software or hardware that I worked with
  • New music I listen/discovered
  • Any new sort of self-improvement or wellness habit or activity
  • Just about anything interesting that I did the past month.

For starters, this blog post is really late, it’s March 11th, and me being a king of procrastination; I finally took the time to write up my February 2018 favorites.

Reading wise, last month I read the first two books (publication order) of The Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia. Both being quite enjoyable reads. My goal is the read the remaining five books this month. Also last month, I read about half of the sixth book The Complete History of Middle-Earth series, The Return of the Shadow.

Gaming wise, last month I finally purchased and played the Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds expansion. Horizon Zero Dawn was my favorite game of 2017, and the expansion added a somewhat massive additional map, cool new weapons, and new machines (difficult) to battle. I’m a big fan of the story in Horizon Zero Dawn, so I hope this is the first of many games in this awesome new franchise. Lastly, last month I played, through most of the campaign of Wolfenstein: The New Order. Gameplay is really fun, however I really disliked the useless boring puzzle like missions that really don’t add much to main story.

Wellness / Self-improvement
Finally self-improvement and professionally wise, I started studying for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate certification. For the resources, I’m using courses from A Cloud Guru and Linux Academy, as well the books AWS Certified Solutions Architect Official Study Guide: Associate Exam 1st Edition and Amazon Web Services in Action.
