Site Progress & Personal Update: August 2020

Guardian Acorn | Continue, Don't Quit

One may have noticed that, once again, there was not a Site Update for the previous month. While I prefer to keep making these pieces so I can keep a record of what is happening each month just so I can look back on it in the future, I have decided that I’m not going to force myself to create one when I’m in the middle of a bad depression streak, which I was at the beginning of last month. So anyway, let’s recap the last two months. Read more

Site Progress and Personal Update: May 2020

Guardian Acorn | Continue, Don't Quit

I think it’s safe to say that I am starting to become more active with frequent updates in the past few months. While the amount of reviews posted isn’t as high as they used to be, there is more to this blog than just reviews. I constantly go back and forth between whether or not I should take a break from political writing given that my political pieces don’t gain as much views, but I’ve said before that this blog was never just about video games. Guardian Acorn was always meant to be an expression of myself, and that’s how it’s going to stay. Read more

Site Progress & Personal Update: April 2020

Guardian Acorn | Continue, Don't Quit

So it turns out that I have successfully started kicking this site into high gear again, and have started putting out more frequent pieces. I knew I would get around to doing that eventually, but I did need to change the direction of the site a bit to do so. It’s becoming harder for me to prioritize gaming content when shit just keeps getting worse and worse.

I actually planned on canceling my Pink Tsunami series in favor of just doing The Weekly Bern, but I have decided I’m now doing both since I’ve actually started getting request for them, and have got an influx of followers on my Facebook page for my work with the Facebook group, TCSN – Progressive Candidate Forum.

Political Rant: The Super Tuesday Pandora’s Box

Pandora's box

Things are not going as we expected right now. After several months of the Bernie Sanders campaign building itself up and gaining traction, after Bernie became the first candidate to win all three early states in the Democratic primary, we see three candidates drop out and endorse Biden. And suddenly, Bernie is back to being the underdog, Cenk Uygur lost his primary race in a land slide, and Jessica Cisneros just barely lost to Trump’s favorite Democrat. We got smacked in the face with the crushing reality that our Democracy is only for show, and that the establishment is always one step ahead of us.

Or is it?

Site Progress & Personal Update: February 2020

Guardian Acorn | Continue, Don't Quit

I feel like I’m starting to sound like a broken record each month. I’m basically trying to explain where I’m at mentally and why I don’t put out as many updates as I used to. I wouldn’t be so concerned about my output if it weren’t for the fact that it becomes harder to grow my platform when there is less content. I’m considering returning to my original schedule of editing a previous review of mine each week just so I put something out. I do want to get back in the habit of having smaller stuff to post between the political pieces and new reviews.

Site Progress & Personal Update: January 2020

We did it folks, we managed to survive three years of a Trump presidency… barely. Unfortunately he has now launched a drone strike on Iran and we may be heading into World War III. I knew that Trump was going to get worse in 2020 but I didn’t think he’d do it THIS soon!! So yeah, hopefully we last until the election or decide to storm the white House and drag Trump’s ass to the guillotine where it belongs, because I don’t want the last post on this site to read like the final few chapters of the Diary of Anne Frank.

It’s hard to believe I once wrote about games or something. I would like to go back to that when we get this embarrassment of a human being out of the White House and replace him with Bernie Sanders, Read more

Site Progress & Personal Update: December 2019

Guardian Acorn | Continue, Don't Quit

Gosh it feels like these months are going by in a flash. Things have been going pretty well for me as of late, and I have been quite hard at work. While things are still a bit slower on this blog then they used to be, that is specifically because I’m still working on additional political projects. Specifically, I am trying to get a Facebook group set up for Progressive candidates to interact with their supporters and to build a bigger support base for said candidates.  Thus far I have got 38 candidates to join on and I am still working towards making this a thing.

This is what happens when the higher ups fuck with those less fortunate than them. Those less fortunate get pissed and decide to take things into their own hands, and they raise hell! I apologize if you don’t care about politics and just want to see me talk about vidya Geamz, but I can’t sit this one out. Although I will still try to get some reviews out. Read more

Site Progress & Personal Update: November 2019

Another month has passed and… I didn’t actually do all that much writing wise. Three poems, one personal piece, and one re-uploaded review isn’t all that much I know. It feels like every time I sit down to write one of these Site Update pieces, I’m just trying to justify a lack of activity when the truth is that Guardian Acorn just hasn’t been my top priority as of late. That’s not to say I haven’t been doing anything, but a lot of the work I’ve done has been focused on… other projects that I’d like to keep a secret for now. That’s not even taking into account the constant attempts to combat depression. Read more

For National Coming Out Day.

Transition Timeline
Coming out as trans
This picture right here is how I came out as trans. The account is deleted now but I still have a screenshot of it. To think I realized I was trans entirely because of a question on a Q&A site.
What a ride it has been. Despite all the frequent heartache and dysfunction I’ve experienced, I’m still the happiest I’ve ever been right now. All because I’ve got to live as my true self. Going from living as a male to transitioning and living as a woman is like you never showered for 20 years, and the feeling of finally cleaning away all that grime and dirt and resembling a human being for the first time.

Site Progress & Personal Update: October 2019

Guardian Acorn | Continue, Don't Quit

One may have noticed that there was no September update if one was paying close attention. The reason for that had to pertain to the heavy feeling of burnout that I’ve been experiencing, and the constant struggles to determine the direction of this blog. As I said in my brief update, I’m now sticking to a “whatever the hell I want whenever the hell I want” basis.” This means I’ll be going back to game reviews, as I just don’t have the energy to write about politics at this time. Anyway I’ve decided that I’m going to recap everything I’ve done throughout the past few months as opposed to just the last. Read more
