Let me just say that last month was total clusterfuck for me, and for everyone else based on the sounds of things. If one hasn’t caught on by now, me not posting a Site Update at the beginning of a month either means I don’t know what to say, or I’m depressed and overwhelmed. I started our September with a wave of depression and chronic fatigue. I managed to combat both of these later by getting my sleep schedule back on track, and by taking multi-vitamins and drinking more water. Anyway, here is the recap of the last few months.Read more
I’m three days into this month and I’m already exhausted. I wish I could start this piece on a more optimistic note, but I’m pissed off and overwhelmed. I’m disgusted with the state of my country even more than usual and I’m find it less and less likely that anything is going to change. Hell I kinda wish I was with those protestors right now, but my parents are middle aged and immunocompromised and I can’t risk them getting the virus.
I would like to take some time to discuss recent events, but first let’s do the recap thingy. Read more
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
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.

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.
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
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
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
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
I have previously mentioned my dilemma of not knowing what direction to take my blog in. I’ve been most recently focused on politics as of late but my game reviews were what made this blog what it was. I’ve been thinking about what direction I wanted to take things, but I think I reached a decision. I’m going to focus specifically on politics at this time, and I’m going to be doing this from now until the United States Presidential Election at least. Whether or not I keep going past that point will likely depend on whether or not Trump wins re-election.
I initially intended this blog as a long shot hope of substituting for an actual career, and maybe that could still happen. But everything is currently falling apart in my country, and if I don’t do literally everything in my power to stop it then I’m not that much better than those who actively support it. That’s not to say that there won’t be anything else, just that the focus will be on politics for a while. Anyway here is last month’s article recap. Read more
