Secret Blogger Santa – Community Event


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my readers! Earlier in the year I decided to take part in a Secret Blogger Santa, organised by Livid Lightning! And the Blogger that I was assigned for this festive fun was The Gaming Diaries!

For those of you who didn’t see the original post by Livid Lightning, here it is. Here’s a brief explanation: I must now gift a video game item to my assigned Blogger, explain why it is that I am gifting it to them, and just talk about them and select some of my favourite posts,

So here we go!


My Gift – The Gift Of Time

Bit of an abstract one, huh? The Gift Of Time is found in The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle Of Seasons, and it is rewarded to Link once he completes the Snake’s Remains dungeon.

I have chosen this as my gift, because one of the sad truths of life is that it can be difficult to find the time to pursue your passions and interests as an adult – life so often tries to get in the way!

An avid lover of video games, Lego, and an excellent sketcher too, I’m sure anyone would appreciate more time on their hands to be able to fully indulge themselves in the hobbies that they love.


My favourite posts

Here are just a few of the great posts there are to be found on The Gaming Diaries.


Things Retail Workers Want You To Know

This one is quite close to my heart as a fellow retail worker. There are lots of frustrations in the retail environment, especially at this wonderful time of year. Sometimes people just need to be reminded that we are real people with feelings, and we always appreciate those who bear this in mind!


Sometimes You Just Have To Lego

As a fellow fanatic of Lego, not to mention Lego video games, this is another post that I relate to a lot. There are some rather sweet, personal anecdotes here, which I found quite amusing. Reading this also makes me recall the many, many hours I spent building houses, secret bases, and dungeons.


Looking For: Video Game Jobs

This is a really interesting take on a very real problem for some people (myself included). Not all of us know what we want to do in life, and this is a fun look at our potential career prospects in video games … no, not in the industry, I mean literally in video games!
