Gaming/Stream Setup

I’ve been into gaming since I was very little, but only got into PC gaming over the last 10 years or so. I feel like a good or at least decent gaming setup helps when it comes to gaming in itself or even with just streaming :D So I thought this week I’d show my current gaming and streaming setup!

Survived My First Real Winter

When I moved to Ohio it was during winter (beginning of November), and I wasn’t fully prepared for it. Now I spent most of my winter breaks from the age of 6 until 17 in Ohio, so I knew what to mostly aspect of snow but I never experienced it as an adult that had to drive in it. But for the most part I was a Floridan. During winter I wore flip flops and shorts and enjoyed the 60 degree weather. Sure at night and even in the morning it could get down into the teens but it didn’t last long. And it was amazing.

I was not fully prepared for how bloody cold it’d be (several times it was -25 with the wind blowing!), but overall I enjoyed the winter (when I didn’t have to drive in it). Snow is not fun to drive in, and it seems to decrease people’s brain cells and causes them to drive even more horribly than normal.  I am hoping by next winter though that we live in a place with a garage :P Or somewhere where there is no snow! Although I did get some nice photos :)

From the first snow:

Guess it did end up snowing last night :P

And finally when the final snow started melting:

Gorgeous day today! Still some snow on the ground :) Loving my new phone too, such better quality xD

New Tech, iPhone 6

So Friday during work I cracked my iPhone 4 … even more than it already was. In that moment I really realized that I needed a new phone. Getting a new phone meant I would no longer have to deal with the crappy ‘old’ camera, the horrid battery life (seriously it lasted for a few hours MAYBE on one full charge), and just my overall frustrations with my phone. Bright side on Friday I also got paid ;)

Left work early (yay for an awesome boss and having a dead day at work!), and did way more research on a new phone than anyone should. I didn’t really want to spend $200 on the new iPhone so considered getting the 5s. It has the same specs (mostly), but just a smaller screen. Which I am fine with. My boyfriend and I went to a Verizon store, but after about 10 minutes of being ignored by employees doing nothing we went home. I was frustrated, because all I wanted to do was throw money at them haha! Riot suggested checking out Best Buy so after relaxing home for a few hours that was our next stop.

Now I have had bad experiences in the past with Best Buy, but maybe that was just the ones in Florida (because having boobs obviously means you don’t know anything!) so I had no expectations. Had to wait a while (they were so busy), but I was acknowledged and eventually got helped. The worker there was SO amazing, we even chatted about streaming and video games. He told me if I got an opened iPhone 5s (they usually open them to show people or something else) it’d be free and I would even get a $100 to Best Buy instead of paying $100 for it, which sounded great to me! He couldn’t find a silver but showed me the gold, and boy did I fall in love with the color. He then mentioned if I was interested in the 6 that they take $100 off of those too if it’s an opened one and that they might even have a silver! They didn’t. So he hunted for a gold. They didn’t have that either. Just my luck right? So he did what any awesome customer service rep would do, he opened an iPhone in gold on “accident”. So I got the iPhone 6 in gold (16gb because I don’t need a lot of space) and I only had to pay $100 for it + I bought a cute case there for $20 :D

I am beyond excited to have a new phone. The battery life alone has been amazing (I’ve been using it all day today and on one charge we’re going on about 12 hours of use!), but the camera quality is such a huge improvement. Will definitely been spamming Instagram and Twitter with my photos ;) I highly recommend the phone! My last one lasted me about 4 years, so hopefully this one lasts just as long ;) Photos below!

I just LOVE the gold color! Didn’t think I’d like it, but it’s so pretty.
