Losing Skyrim and Lydia

January 12
Take Two
Run outside. Take a picture of the first thing you see. Run
inside. Take a picture of the second thing you see. Write
about the connection between these two random objects,
people, or scenes.

 

Now for this post I was supposed to go outside and take a picture of the first thing I see and then come back inside and take another picture of another thing I see and then I had to make a connection between the two before writing about it.

“Ain’t nobody got time for that!”

I refuse to leave the confinements of my warm room and leave the house in the middle of British winter for such a pointless task. I’d rather make up my own post for such a cool title.

Take TwoImagine you can go back in time and change one thing in your life. What if you got a do-over to change one moment in the past; something you would do differently should you get another opportunity that has been eating up inside you despite knowing true and well that what has happened cannot be changed. I live life with the no regrets philosophy as mistakes are there to be made.

However, should such an opportunity arise, I would not have allowed myself to be stupid enough to corrupt my Xbox 360 Hard-drive which resulted in me losing all my save progress in Skyrim. I was absolutely gutted as I had started the game with two separate characters and to lose all that progress was such a heart-ache that I could never play the game with the same level of enthusiasm again, knowing my warriors were dead.

But what hurt even more was the fact Lydia was dead considering how hard I had tried to keep her alive for so long. Yes, I would have gotten a new Lydia and I did but it wasn’t the same Lydia who had slayed so many dragons with me and explored a few hundred dungeons and forts.

Yes, if I had another chance, I would not allow my Skyrim file be corrupted trying to make more space and not allow my Lydia to die.

  1. Hahaha! I did the actual prompt, but I like this! Here in Florida, it didn’t get cold at all until late December, and even now it’s probably no lower than about 50 F so it feels about 40.
    Kind of depressing that it was still sweltering when winter started, but at least I’m not getting hypothermia. 🙂
