Self-Care, Not Self-Sabotage What Is Self-Sabotage?
Here we are going to talk about the sworn enemy of self-care; self-sabotage. It isn’t that easy to see what is getting us down, preventing us from reaching goals, or even preventing the desire to achieve. We all have areas of our life that are 80% good most of the time. For instance, some of us are comfortable with our work and friendships but don’t really have a dating life. For others, we are really good with friendships and relationships but are afraid to make big moves to start our own business. Self-Sabotage is universal, because everyone has areas of their life they prevent themselves from improving.

Best Boss Themes Legend of Zelda
A Link to the Past: Original Hyrule Castle Theme A Link to the past brings us the original Hyrule castle theme. I know this isn’t a boss fight but the fact is it builds up to each of the Ganondorf boss fights following this game because it is part of Zelda history.

5 Things I Learned Playing Apex Legends
You may have died so many times you think you suck at this game. You may also be mistaken. Every video game, much like every skill in life, takes quite a lot of practice to get good. More than that, you may have been missing out on having the basic skills down. The firing range will always be there for practicing how to shoot. This is especially true if you know how to turn the dummies into live shooters, making target practice much more realistic. Chances are, you have played so many games you have good aim but low confidence. Not only that but it is time to revisit the basics.
Shigeru Miyamoto: The Person Who Gave Gaming a Storyline
Early Life Shigeru Miyamoto was born on November 16th, 1952 in Sonobi Japan. A small village northwest of Kiyoto, there was plenty of nature to discover near his own home. Growing up in the 50’s, as a kid Miyamoto would pass the time exploring caves near his house. As he got older he became interested in Manga. He attended the Kanazawa Municipal College of Industrial Arts, where he graduated with a degree in Industrial Design. After he graduated he had little interest in becoming an industrial designer - instead, he aspired to become a professional manga artist. He didn’t know he would go on to save the gaming industry.

Doing anything alone is hard for a lot of people - we are social creatures, even us introverts, so it takes courage to decide to be alone. Only, doing something by ourselves is the biggest test of our resolve. We face the opinions of other people - expressions of concern, lack of encouragement, or intimidating expectation of success. Yet the more times we do something alone, the more we practice putting our foot down and doing what is the best for us. This is what I did on my first time backpacking alone. The results were exhilarating.

The Top 5 Boss Fights from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
You know how it is. The anticipation, the pull, to reach certain bosses. They are the ultimate reward at the end of a dungeon, and they offer the right degree of challenge for you. Not all bosses are created equal. Some are better than others, so here I’ll be ranking them from least to best. My criteria are aesthetic and challenge because those contribute to the magnetism of each boss, complementing the Zelda aesthetic for what it is: awesome. Let’s get to it.
