Welcome to Checkpoint; the place you can catch up with all things gaming, comics and film.
You know that sense of relief and satisfaction in a game when you finally hit that checkpoint you have been striving for? That brief moment in time where you know you are safe and you have that breathing space, that time to rest, even for a minute? The moment where, even though you know that what lies ahead is likely harder than what came before, you have this checkpoint to reflect and prepare for what is next. That’s what I want this Checkpoint to be.
I’m not talking about the idea that life is an illusion and we are in an alien’s video game where you can auto save and get infinite do-overs – its not that kind of blog… at least not yet. I am talking about the idea of taking a moment at Checkpoints in your life to both reflect and prepare; to get ready for what is lying in wait through that next door or spaceship or inter-dimensional portal and take everything you have learnt before and apply it to what is ahead.
I don’t want this to be penned as a self help blog where I claim I have found myself and therefore can help you find inner peace. You will find, if anything, that this is the opposite and that I am often unfocused, demotivated and frustrated, clambering to find my own moments to pause. I want this to be a space where I talk about things that I enjoy – from Marvel to Pokémon and everything in between. I stream through-out the week and I have even started to record my own blogs *shudder*. Don’t expect professional quality but hopefully you can expect some honesty and sincerity.
Never be afraid to drop me a message to say hi or leave a comment to let me know how I am getting on. This feedback is important to me as I can develop this little project into a labour of love and hopefully meet some of you along the way.
This blog will be a compendium of my thoughts, predictions and insights from around the pop culture-sphere. They may not always be right, but they will be mine. Everything on this site will be my own opinion and does not represent anyone else’s view. As a result I would love to hear from you as to what you think about them so feel free to leave comments, tweet me or drop by my streams.
