Plans For The Week 11/30/15-12/6/15 & What’s Been Goin’ On

Hello Everybody!

I know I haven’t been too active on here lately and I really must apologize for that. Things have been extremely busy and I not only needed a small break, but also didn’t have the time to write up anything of quality for the site. This update will be like the standard ones I typically do, but will also go into additional information on what I’ve been working on and where this site is headed.

The Plan

Since today is Wednesday, I am not planning to really do anything this week. However, The Boardwalk Games recently nominated me for The Real Neat Blog Award and I do want to address his questions. Outside of this update and addressing the nomination, don’t expect anything this week, but be prepared for postings resuming on a semi-regular (if not regular) schedule next week.

PS:  I have some interesting things in the works, so I promise CONTENT WILL BE COMING!

The Previous Week

Published Content: 

Since it was a Holiday last week and I was very busy, I only had the Weekly Update for that week.

Important Happenings:

Ok, this section is going to be a big one so strap in. First off, I had several projects and papers that had to be done for this week during the Holiday. I was extremely busy with them.

School Stuff:

The first project was a presentation about bias in the workplace and how it can be mitigated. The presentation focused on how bias in the workplace can occur, its implications, addressing company culture issues, tools to mitigate bias, and why all that is important. This was a term-long project so it was quite a bit of work.

Project two was my big marketing project that was also a term-long affair. I just gave the presentation yesterday and was commended for taking a unique approach, as well as having a clean report and presentation. For this project I had to write up a detailed report explaining my marketing plan for a real company that will be producing the winning product, in addition to a 5 minute pitch/presentation. This project was a blast! Unfortunately, I can not go over the details of the project currently as the winner of this competition hasn’t been announced, and the product is not yet to market.

Lastly, I had a paper that wasn’t really all that “complicated” about social media’s roll in hiring/monitoring for business. This paper ended up eating a lot of time since it had some pretty silly requirements, but it was fairly lackluster compared to the big projects that I cared about. This paper really only managed to eat up a lot of my time and take me out of writing here :/ sorry guys.

Cool Things/Stuff I wanted to mention:

Righstuf still has there holiday sale going on in full swing. If you haven’t already, check it out. I got some really good anime for very cheap and am looking forward to what they’ll be adding through-out the month. I hope to have an article about some particularly good deals/shows that are up on the sale sometime soon.

The deals don’t stop there! CoolStuffInc, my go-to place for board games has been having some sales off-and-on too for Cyber Monday and the upcoming Christmas Holiday. If you know a board gamer (or are one yourself) you should go check them out since they usually have the lowest price with free shipping in the US.

The Clannad Visual Novel finally released on Steam for $49.99. That may seem like a lot, but it’s truly a great VN that is worth your time if you enjoy Visual Novels at all. It briefly outsold Call of Duty even! WOW!

Closing Thoughts & Thanks

While I’m still not impressed with WordPress’s new format, it is getting a bit easier to work in for me as I get used to it. I would again like to apologize for not being very active over the past couple weeks, but this will soon be changing 🙂

I would like to give a big thanks to The Boardwalk Games again for the nomination, as well as James Hayward Productions for subscribing. Be sure to check them both out!

Lastly, a BIG THANKS to everybody who has continued to follow and support me even when I was busy and unable to post much here. I really appreciate it!
