Good morning Destructoid! Chrono here to once again remind you it's that lovely time of the week. It's Friday!
What a long week it has been. So progress has been made on me becoming the new lead of my department. I have now finally been offically offered the role by the company recruiter. They really love taking their time on these things lol However, with that, they took a look at the starting pay I was going to be making which was only a little more then what I was making before my promotion. They decided to give me a pretty large raise and I'm definitely happy about it. I'll be making quite a bit more then what I was making previously even with my 8% shift differential. For my old Select Start crew who will remember, just 3-4 years ago I was really struggling financially. So don't get me wrong when I'm saying this as I'm not trying to brag, but I'm just really happy with myself and the progress I've made since. The hard work has paid off and I'm truly grateful to be where I'm at today.
We had a small Halloween get together with the gf's family planned buuuut stuff happened and that's now been called off. So now we're just going to show up to her parents house in our Halloween costumes, drop off some baked goods and take off. Maybe we'll go shopping in our costumes to throw some customers and staff off. We'll make it fun haha. I'm going as Screams Ghost Face and she's dressing as my victim ;) lol.
No other big plans for this weekend. Just relax after the long week. Get some gaming in. Maybe finish the horror game Those Who Remain with the gf. Try to finish Metroid Dread and put some more time into Far Cry 6.
Last week we took a little mini vacation and went to Bearizona for the first time and it was amazing. I thought they'd have like 3 bears at most roaming around but they had so many! They were just chilling as cars slowly passed and even a few of them walked right in front of us. Bears are my fav animal so I was having a blast lol The other portion of Bearizona was like a normal zoo but a bit smaller. They still had some really cool animals to check out.
We took so many photos but those are two of my favs. The day after, we went on a nice hike before heading home. The drive to get there was kinda terrifying as it was a very narrow road with us going up and plenty of people coming down. People had to pull over to let other cars pass because of how small the road was. Going up the mountain, we were on the edge of a cliff with no guardrail and was a liiittle to close for comfort. Once we finally got there, the hike was well worth it. The trail was kinda slipperly due to snow and ice and but was still a very nice, relaxing time. Much needed.
That's it from me this week. How was your week Dtoid!? Any fun weekend plans? Watch, play or read anything new worth sharing? Let us know down in the comments and as always, happy gaming!
