Gamer . Streamer . Dabbler . Otaku

Bought a small foldable pool for my son to have some water fun in…. and it started raining for more than a day, causing the weather to stay cool. Just my luck, I guess…

FFXIV.SS #12 – Valentione’s G’raha Tia

I had the opportunity to join my fellow G’raha Tia lovers in a Art Party and so I took some screenshots of the lovely catboy who is dressed up with the newest clothes from the event, in the beautifully decorated FC house.

Bonus! An absolute angel!

FFXIV.SS #11 – The Shifting Gymnasion Agonon

Recently went treasure hunting with friends and entered The Shifting Gymnasion Agonon instance and my goodness, this place is so pretty!

Some Announcements for my Twitch Streams and etc

This is mostly meant for my Twitch regulars / viewers and I was going to post it on Discord. Then I posted it (as four separate messages too) and realize I wrote too much and it’s better as a blog post that I can also share to Twitter as well. ^^;

There are quite a few topics I want to talk about, so bear with me here.

Big News in Shizu’s life!

It’s been a while since I last posted, largely because of the broken images in the blog that I have only just fixed. Now that they are fixed, I’m more likely to make blog posts now.

However, it’s unlikely I’m going to be posting all that frequently either, because some time next month, I’ll have a little one to take care of.

Yes, I’m going to be a mama soon.

It’s going to be a huge life-changing event, or rather it already is. Worry not, this is not suddenly going to turn into a mummy blog. I may or may not have posts musing about thoughts on being a mother, but my need for privacy and security means I likely won’t share much, especially photos.

From start of October, I’ll have begun the long break from my live-streaming activities on Twitch and soon after, most of my gaming activities.

After giving birth, I will be focused on recovery and taking care of the newborn, and probably won’t be able to do much else anyway. I’m blessed in that I don’t have to worry about going back to work asap as my current work arrangements are very flexible, so I’ll take as long as I need to be in a good stable state before I restart live-streaming or work.

It’s likely to take a while before I’m back for good though, considering my energy level and spoons aren’t much to start with. But that’s something in the future, and who knows what that will hold for us? 🙂

Images are fixed! I’m back? Sort of.

I was feeling rather out of sorts and in a bout of procrastination, decided to login and update the wordpress software version. Which then led me to attempting to fix the botched image thumbnails and links (which, note to self, was caused by mismatched folders and image urls).

Long story short, images are fixed! So I don’t have a mental block stopping me from popping in and posting some FFXIV.SS or making posts now.

As for whether I’ll be posting more…. check out the other post about the Big News~

Just popping in a bit and updating the backend stuff but oh boy, the images are all mostly still broken somehow. I’m a bit swamped by work (and other matters), so it’ll be a while until I can sit down and fix them properly.

FFXIV.SS #10 – Magical Il Mheg

I was flying through Il Mheg to do my Miner’s Crystalline Mean quests and the colors of this place is just astoundingly beautiful. Reshade is used to make the colors pop a little more but even without, it’s still a gorgeous area.

Llama commands

1st half of the llama-gif commands
2nd half of the llama-gif commands

These are the llamama gifs that subscribers of my Twitch channel are able to use in Twitch’s chat, and everyone in my Discord server can use. They are created by the very talented huiro, who also does amazing pokemon fanart. I have asked her for the permission to use the gifs for these purposes.

I updated the WordPress engine for the blog recently and somehow the images in the recent posts couldn’t be displayed properly after that. I did a bit of searching and it was caused by a plugin so I disabled it and everything should be back to before the update now.

There are still broken images from when I migrated the site and somehow managed to mess up my media library big time. Those I’ll see about fixing them bit by bit in my spare time.

I think new update broke images again, so when I have free time later this week (which I may have scheduled a bunch of stuff), I’ll see how I can fix them.

FFXIV.SS #09 – Moonfire Faire

Moonfire Faire has returned to Eorzea! Again it’s at Costa del Sol and the beautiful beachside fireworks view is back!

With the new desktop I have, it also means that I can install Reshade again and take beautiful screenshots that I don’t have to use Photoshop on.

This year’s event features an epic fight between a bombard and a giant shark on two legs. Players have to dance to aid the bombard in defeating the shark and it’s just such a movie scene lol.

The reward from the event is a beautiful Hawaiian-inspired clothing set.

Screenshot of my Viera character with a dark-skinned light-haired Elezen female NPC in Lavender Beds. Reshade is used to take this photo.
Found a lovely Elezen NPC lady to take photo with in Lavender Beds.
