Happy Halloween

Look at sleepy baby cat and his spooky collar. ( ; w ; )


Happy Halloween, everyone!

I hope there are plenty of sugar rushes, cool costumes, and scary movies. All of that good stuff.

090: Nornir

FFXV looks amazing.

Trying to reorganize my blog entries again. Bear with me.

✪ Personal Life ✪

  • Whenever I get sick I sometimes remember that the purpose of the “bug” is to kill me, not to inconvenience me, and it brings home that death is always right around the corner. Also, I am fun at parties.
  • I kind of want to give myself a high five right now because I had this long list of shit I wanted to clean and organize (as I try to do every change of season), and I tackled it today. While I am still semi-sick. But at the same time I kind of want to kick myself in the face because when I’m healthy I never do shit, yet when I’m sick I suddenly find a bunch of energy and invest 4-5 hours into chores. I am too backwards for my own good. D:
  • Halloween is almost here~ That’s the day that I dump a bunch of candy into my pumpkin bowl, turn off all the lights so trick-or-treaters won’t ask me for any, and watch scary movies until I pass out. It’s gonna be NICE. Hopefully. But I never know.
  • 99% of the time when I refer to someone as “my baby” or “my boo” IRL I am talking about either Link or Levi(athan). The cat and the car respectively.

✪ Art & Writing ✪

  • Titles are a headache. I know that “Mythos” is not good enough anymore, yet nothing else seems to be good enough either. Mark suggested having a name for the series (ex: GRRM’s “A Song of Fire and Ice”) and then naming each book based individually (ex: “A Game of Thrones”, “A Feast for Crows”, “A Storm of Swords”, etc.). That’s not a bad idea. In fact, his advice led me to a series name (“The Millennium Sorceress”). The issue though is that I am not even set on the idea of books. I’ll bring that to the next bullet.
  • The more I work on “Mythos” (let’s just stick with the usual title until I am set on “TMS” or anything else), the more it feels like an RPG. And it makes sense. I began this project because I was inspired by RPGs like Final Fantasy and Chrono Cross. I like the whole travelling around the world, meeting party members, and telling stories through dialog and battles. Actually, I’m waiting for RPG Maker VX Ace to go back on sale again so I can start working with it. It’s about $60 on Steam right now, but it was $15 once. So I’ll wait. Until then I’ll try “Mythos” as an RPG instead. Let’s see if that helps this horrible writer’s block I am dealing with.
  • Nanowrimo is around the corner, but I don’t think I will participate this year. My creative juices are flowing more towards the technical side (drawing, creating maps, making skill trees, etc.) than the writing side. I really am a shit writer. I can’t explain things as beautifully and poetically as the writers I admire. *pouts* Oh well…
  • Drawing comics about the things that are bothering me can be really therapeutic. Oddly enough, it is not revisiting unpleasant things and making them comical that makes me feel relaxed. It is more the freedom to be meticulous. Whipping that ruler out, drawing perfect lines, being uber-cautious with inking–that is the part that makes me feel…in control. I just like the feeling of taking something as chaotic as something I cannot avoid, like misfortune, and making it all neat. Manageable, even. It’s comforting.

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

I tried out the Funimation and Crunchyroll apps for two weeks, and I managed to catch up on a bunch of animes.

  • Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun – I really love this anime. It’s lighthearted. It’s funny. The main character is really easy to relate to while the supporting characters remind me of so many people I know. It’s just a feel-good anime that I can see myself rewatching the moment the series is done. Also, that ending song. It’s so cute and it’s stuck in my head. D:
  • Gintama – I will get the Crunchyroll app just to finish this anime. Seriously. Within the first minute or so I was dying of laughter.
  • Tonari no Seki-kun – Another funny anime. Seki reminds me so much of Mark. He just has an endless supply of tiny toys that he does distracting stuff with. Seriously, we have been living in this apartment for a while and I am still discovering random toys in random places doing random things, and whenever I ask him to explain it he has some elaborate story for why they are there. So, it’s no surprise that he loved the hell out of this anime. It is a pretty cute anime. I just wish it was longer. 😦
  • Naruto Shippuden – Dude, I have not watched this anime in years. I came back to it to see what happened and found out Team 7/Team Kakashi is back together. What the fuck? Wasn’t Sasuke evil? Yeah… hella behind. I found out that Naruto is coming to an end really soon too, so that’s kind of bittersweet. I know Naruto gets shit on a lot (as anything remotely popular does), but…that’s fucking Naruto man. It’s going to be sad to see it go. I never got into One Piece, but I might start checking that anime out so I’m not without a staple shounen series to fall back on. Well…I have Toriko. That counts as shounen, right? Sometimes I forget because Toriko is an adult who is very, extremely manly. But so is Goku and DBZ is shonen anime/manga legend. It’s all good.
  • Dramatical Murder – Eh… Compared to the game it was very tame. I like the music though. I never skipped the opening and closing because I liked the songs a lot. The animation was also nice. I didn’t get to see much of my bb Mink, but it was still OK.
  • Sword Art Online II – Didn’t like it as much as I liked the first. Mark was really into it though.
  • Akame ga Kill! – Started off interesting. Got bored around episode 3 or 4. I might try again another time.
  • High School DxD – …What the fuck did I watch…? Pretty sure it was hentai.
  • The Idol Master – a.k.a. the anime based on the game that made Kentaro Miura stop working on Berserk. LOL. I saw the first episode, and it seemed adorable. I would not mind seeing how the rest goes.

Speaking of Berserk, that manga update. YES. I have been waiting for someone to slap the shit out of Griffith ever since the Eclipse, and I am so glad it was Rickert.  That blatant disrespect at the graveyard of swords too was just… Yeah. He needed the taste slapped out of his mouth. Well, I think he deserves much more than that–MUCH MUCH MORE–but to get pimp slapped at his own tea party by a kid in front of all of his friends was pretty nice. 10/10. Not okay with that ‘Til’ Next Time’ though.

✪ Video Games ✪

  • I doomed my FFVII replay by going to that fucking Northern Cave. Now that I completed the game I just have no motivation to do anything else. It kind of sucks. There are still weapons to beat and special items to get, but I have this sense of closure from completing the game. Maybe I’ll play tomorrow or something. IDK.
  • Alien: Isolation was amazing. Please don’t listen to IGN’s review. The person who reviewed it was bitter about constantly dying and tried to blame the game for it. The thing is… he started the game on hard mode. Of course you will die a lot if you choose to play a game in hard mode. What were you expecting? Additionally, he mentioned his tactic of hiding in the vents to avoid confronting a xenomorph, but xenomorphs travel through the vents. That’s like trying to avoid getting hit by a car by standing in the middle of the street. I’m sorry, but it irks the hell out of me when companies give poor reviews to games because they suck at it. A lot of people who worked hard to make a superior game can lose money and their jobs because of shit reviews like that. It’s just really irresponsible journalism. No one should never blame the quality of a product on their inability to handle it. I hate seeing reviews like that on sites like Amazon (“This product clearly says to do this but I’m going to do the opposite and bitch about it online.”), and I especially hate seeing reviews like that when it comes to games. /rant
  • My gaming life is still being consumed by Borderlands 2. This weekend was free gold weekend, so I took the opportunity to input a fuckton of shift codes. I have 100+ keys, new skins, new heads. It’s really nice. Lately, I’ve been grinding/farming with Maya in hopes of catching her up to Gaige, and I’m getting kind of close. Maya is level 13. Gaige is level 19. I just have to take my time around Tundra Express, and hope that I don’t run into any badass anythings. If I stick with the varkids and a few basic bandits I can level up pretty fast. It’s not a big deal though. Gaige is still my main character. I’m just curious about Maya’s phaselocking potential. 😛
  • Don’t talk to me about Hyrule Warriors, Super Smash Bros Wii U or Bayonetta 2 because I don’t have a Wii U and I don’t know when I’ll get one tbh (Yes, I know SSB is on the 3DS but I can’t afford that one either).
  • I played the Theatrhythm: Curtain Call demo, and it was so fun! I really want to play the full version. 200 Final Fantasy songs? Are you kidding me? I need that right now. ;_;
  • LET’S TALK ABOUT DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION THO.
  • Praying to the video game gods rn so I save up $400 and get a PlayStation 4.  I don’t want to imagine my life without Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy Type-0, The Witcher 3, Kingdom Hearts 3. What else am I missing? A bunch of games, I am sure. PLUS all the PSX classics. Just thinking about playing Xenogears in the immediate future makes me want to dance around. *sigh* Just gotta work hard. Keep tackling bills, taking care of home, and saving. I’ll get there soon enough.

✪ Books ✪

Nothing to really add here. I haven’t ventured beyond the same books I piled at my bedside last time. I’ve just been caught up in other hobbies. I am really looking forward to The World of Ice and Fire though. Like, REALLY looking forward to it. I’ve been annoying Mark with my excitement for it. Whoops. LOL. The same goes for the Chrono Cross Ultimania. I have my eyes on that too. It’s been out forever, but I’m deciding now to say “fuck it” and add it to my collection. Soon.

✪ Music ✪

  •  Is it safe to say that the Super Smash Bros. soundtracks are like the Lollapaloozas for game composers? Seriously, Nobuo Uematsu, Masashi Hamauzu, Yoko Shimomura, Yasunori Mitsuda,  Koji Kondo, Motoi Sakuraba, Keiichi Okabe, Mahito Yokota–LEGENDS. So, it’s safe to say that I am listening to a lot of SSB songs lately. The greatest thing is hearing my favorite composers revamp songs I have been listening to since I was a kid. I never get tired of it. I can hear 1,000 renditions of the Super Mario theme and still get an overwhelming urge to whip out my old school consoles.
  •  Kingdom Hearts 2.5 OST. EVERYTHING HAS BEEN REMADE WITH MORE VIOLINS. If this is a sample of what Yoko Shimomura is going to do with Final Fantasy XV then I am hyped as fuck. There are so many game soundtracks that I need in my life right now. It’s not even funny anymore. -_-

✪ TV & Movies ✪

Man, I don’t even know where to start.

  • South Park – The biggest premiere for me. Of course, SP is as funny and controversial as ever. The thing I am loving most, though, is the continuity. It’s neat that they’re carrying clues from episode to episode until the inevitable conclusion at the season finale. This is SP though. They might string the audience along just to come to an anticlimactic conclusion. Yeah, I can definitely see that happening. LOL
  • The Legend of Korra – Hilarious as always until something destroys my soul.
  • Grey’s Anatomy – …Why am I still watching this show? Seriously, Yang is gone. There is no point for me anymore.
  • Sons of Anarchy – JAAAAX!!! *kicks table over* GEMMAAAA!!! *kicks over all of the chairs* CHARMING IN GENERAL!!!! *flying kick to the window*
  • Gotham –  Not a bad show at all. I hate that I keep missing episodes though. I would be so far behind in everything were it not for Hulu.
  • American Horror Story – Never fails to creep me out. I love it.
  • SNL – Can we just have an entire hour about the nightclubs that Stefon goes to?
  • ANTM – Two words: beard weave. Please stop, Tyra. XDD
  • Forever – Interesting.
  • Agents of Shield – So far so good. If anything happens to Simmons and/or Fitz I am going to…do nothing. Just be really sad. :/
  • The Flash – !!!
  • Gracepoint– I LOVE THIS SHOW. Mark makes fun of me for taking it so seriously, but it is not a joke to me, and he knows there will be trouble if he changes the channel while Gracepoint in on. So much trouble.
  • Total Divas – Never really sat down and watched this show until recently. It’s…eye-opening, I guess? I honestly don’t feel like I’m learning anything about the wrestlers because everything feels scripted. It’s nice to see more of Naomi though. She needs that Divas championship like yesterday. I adore AJ, yes, but Naomi is more athletic to me. I need her to own it at some point.
  • Drunk History – I never get tired of this show. I think I watched a few episodes like three times already because they’re so funny and insightful. Watch it. Even if you’re like me and you rarely drink (or don’t drink at all) just watch it. It’s hilarious.
  • WWE – Last but not least this trash (LOL). Okay, I’ll admit. I was marking the fuck out when The Rock showed up. And he was in Brooklyn?! Yeah, I was happy about that. I’m bummed about Roman Reigns STILL being gone though. Dean Ambrose is filling the void he left, but with John Cena being forced into the Dean and Seth feud it just makes everything kind of…ugh. I don’t hate John Cena. I’m just tired of him. Yes, we get it. Hustle, you can’t see me, never give up. Whatever. Then again, I know he is mainly there for the little kids who never get tired of him, and not so much the adult fans who want  more interesting characters. That is where Dean comes in. He pretty much doesn’t give a shit and does whatever he wants, so I think that is why older fans adore him. Anyway, what’s next? Hell in the Cell? I’m rooting for Dean Ambrose to win. Still, I kind of want Brock Lesnar to show up and chew through the cell or something just to fuck everything up. That would be great.

I haven’t seen any new movies lately. I REALLY want to see Gone Girl.

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

*phew* That was a lot!

Well, this week is going to be a long one for me. There is so much to get done. I only hope that with the spare time I find in between all of the annoying stuff that I can work on an RPG. If not “Mythos” then at least a brand new idea. I’d rather not start a new one though. Yeah…I have nothing else to add. Gonna tackle some crap and then start working on some stuff. I *might* upload some drawings soon too. At last, I have some sketches that I consider decent enough to share. So I will share them soon. Hopefully.

Take care, everyone. ♥

Happy Halloween!

tumblr_mu9o7nAF5C1rfjowdo1_500

Have fun everyone, and remember to not eat strange candy. >_>

I’ll close this entry with the best fictional voodoo priestess of all time.

tumblr_mut3vzffov1rertyro3_250tumblr_mut3vzffov1rertyro4_250tumblr_muu79lWAsE1qzf78ho1_500

Angela Bassett is a flawless queen!!!

BTW: If you need something creepy to watch today, watch American Horror Story: Coven. It’s…very interesting.

Alright, take care!

080: Hand to Hand

Same.

☆彡 Everything is nice and creepy in time for Halloween. Fufufu~ I love me some Gravelord Nito. Actually, all of the major bosses of Dark Souls are beautiful to me–especially Nito, Quelaag, and Ornstein. I cannot understand why I love a game I am so terrible at…but it happens. While on the topic of Halloween, my plan is to pretty much watch horror movies while wearing something lame and eating candy. I’ll try to leave some for the trick-or-treaters. I could always turn off all the lights and pretend no one is home so I can keep all the candy for myself. I know, I know. I am a terrible.

★彡 Mark showed me something really cool the other day. Sega remade the Sega Genesis and stored 80 games in it. But that’s not the coolest part. That part that made us both scream is its ability to play Sega Genesis cartridges. We have some SG games in storage right now that we would love to play, so that is extremely awesome. I am pretty sure if they remake the Super Nintendo I will freak out. Naturally, I will embarrass myself here when that day comes. Capslock, gifs, bold lettering, and all.

☆彡 It’s ironic to me that females get shit for being “fake geeks” when the biggest impersonators I have ever met in my life were males. Here is the thing about females who love things considered “geeky”. They are willing to endure a lot of harassment for the sake of those things. That’s not to say that guys do not love their fandoms as much as girls or that some girls do not lie about their interests to get praise, but I believe that a person who braves negative feedback in order to do something they have a strong passion for are in it for the right reasons.

★彡 I still haven’t read “The Witcher: Time of Contempt”. It has nothing to do with my lacking an urgency to read it. It’s more about funds and my willing to delay buying it in order to acquire more important things. My poor cat has been scratching at the same demolished scratching board for weeks. I would love to at least get him a new one. Especially now that he has turned our carpet into his new scratching board…which I loathe. So, all I can say is soon. I do miss Geralt terribly. With The Witcher 3 being so far away and the grim possibility of not having a PS4 to play it on for eons after its release, “Time of Contempt” is pretty much all the exposure I will have of him for a good while. That sucks. I miss my beautiful white wolf. D:

☆彡My fascination with Wales has gone from admiration to shameless adoration. Seriously, have you seen their flag? Bad. Ass. I will not say they are a flawless country. I am sure both their past and present has its deal of controversy; however, I am still interested in learning more about Welsh history and its culture. I would obviously love to visit one day too. Also, kind of off topic, but I am set on giving my future children a name of Welsh origin. I’M GOING TOO FAR. I KNOW. But on a serious note, Welsh names are the coolest. It’s no wonder that so many fantasy stories rely on Welsh names for their characters. Vaughn has been one of my favorite names since the dawn of time, and I recently learned that it is of Welsh origin. So…that’s awesome. If I ever have a daughter, her name will be Zelda, but that is the only name I am set on. When it comes to daughters beyond Zelda and sons, I will turn to Welsh names. First, though, I have to convince Mark that we should not name our first son Felix. He just won’t budge on that name. It is killing me. LOL. Coming to an agreement on a boy name always turns into a drawn out debate, but the girl names come easy for us. We love Zelda. We love Elsa. We loved Meredith for ages (which happens to be Welsh for “sea lord”. How cool is that? OwO). Let’s hope we have plenty of girls then. Honestly, we are still going back and forth about reproduction being a good idea in the first place. It’s just a lot of stress we know we cannot handle right now. I am sure if we were living under better circumstances we would jump at the opportunity to raise a little human being, but the time is not right. It rarely is. Anyway, where was I? Ah, yes. Wales. I must go there. Good names, cool flag, nice food, castles aplenty, etc, blah blah blah.

★彡 It’s a bit ridiculous that I have soundtracks for games and animes I’ve never seen before. For example, I am obsessed with my Earth Girl Arjuna and Dream Drop Distance CDs yet I haven’t had the pleasure of enjoying either. I guess it doesn’t matter. Good music is good music. Also, I’ve been a fan of Yoko Shimomura and Yoko Kanno long enough to snatch up anything they release without giving a damn about the projects they belong to. The same goes with anything Masashi Hamauzu, Nobuo Uematsu, Yasanori Mitsuda, Go Shiina, and Keiichi Okabe touches. They could sneeze on an album at this point and I will snatch it up like it was going out of style.

☆彡 Writing about Odin makes me uncomfortable at times because I spent so much time writing about him as a child. To have to turn around now and write about him as an adult who often indulges in “adult” things…I can’t describe how it makes me feel. It’s probably the way many people felt when they saw Miley Cyrus twerking. Like, that’s Hannah Montana. There is just no forgetting that. LOL. Anyway, authors have written about more awkward things, so I shouldn’t complain. It’s fine. At least no one is twerking. Not yet. Okay, no one is ever going to twerk. It would be kind of funny though to have all the dragons come together and form a twerk team. Their twerking would just destroy cities and no one would care.

★彡 OH MY FUCKING GOODNESS THIS SONG THO

YOU THINK THIS A MOTHERFUCKING GAME???!!
(Well, Dream Drop Distance is a game, but you know what I mean.)

☆彡 If someone is going through a really shitty ordeal, you are not being a precious pure knight by telling him/her to get over it and be happy. All you’re doing is trivializing whatever (s)he is going through by telling him/her that it can be magically erased by smiling and pretending it didn’t happen. Sure, it’s not healthy to be angry for all of your life but if you go through something terrible and you just want scream or punch a wall then what’s the problem? Seriously, congrats on being a special snowflake who never copes with anger. You can go shit rainbows somewhere else without pestering us lowly mortals who have the nerves to experience wrath from time to time.

★彡 I don’t really know how I feel about John Cena coming back. I mean…he’s coming back to face Alberto Del Rio of all wrestlers. Alberto is a terrific athlete, but him in a feud with Cena just seems boring. He was just in a feud with Van Dam like two seconds ago. Then again, who else is John Cena going to fight? The biggest superstars aside from him are pretty much Daniel Bryan and Randy Orton, and they’re still in their neverending battle for WWE championship. So…I don’t know. Maybe he came back at the wrong time. I’m sure a couple of months down the line a more reasonable rival would have been waiting. *sigh* Oh well. I know Cena gets a lot of hate but I like him. It’s always good to see him back in the ring, being dorky and cheesy. LOL. If anyone should headline in the near future it should be HHH. I know it’s unlikely with his whole best-for-business-man thing but…man…HHH against Big Show would be an interesting rivalry to witness.

By the way, I haven’t seen Princess AJ around recently. I hope she’s all right. 😦

☆彡 I cannot handle anyone who does the prison pose in pictures. I always end up laughing.

★彡 5,000 years later I am still in disbelief that I have an autographed action figure of Odo. I really love Odo. There are countless Star Trek characters out there I consider loveable but I love him most. Flawless shapeshifter~ The only ones that really rival Odo in terms of my adoration for them are Tuvok, Spock, Worf, Kira, and Paris. Yeah…that’s about it. I pretty much have no fondness for anyone on Enterprise. I didn’t mind the show. There was just…no connection there. D:

☆彡 I was told that I had an evil laugh recently. I can’t even disagree. It gets to 90’s anime villain  levels at times.

★彡 Okay, I am pretty much set on getting Erick Rowan’s mask for Halloween. Honestly, I’ll find any excuse to get that mask. It is awesome.

wyatt_playlist_314

Alright, I’m gonna work on writing. That’s pretty much taking up all of my time since ideas come constantly these days. Let’s see how far this goes…before I wind up staring at a blank word document and crying into bowls of ramen. LOL

Happy 19 Days ‘Til Halloween! (( ^ w ^ ))

076: Light It Up

tumblr_m2m29mnkYW1qb90qfo1_500 tumblr_m2m29mnkYW1qb90qfo2_500

★彡 Things are progressing quickly in The Witcher 2. I went from struggling to defeat the kayran to joining King Felselt’s camp. Whoo~ Geralt made it so easy by being strong and adorable~ I was hoping Triss could stick around to be strong and adorable with him, but she’s MIA right now. *weeps* Honestly, the battle with the kayran wasn’t bad at all. I just ran into it without ostmurk the first time and got my ass kicked…and that happened because I abandoned the game for so long before that I forgot that mongoose=ostmurk. As much as I love alchemy in this game, it is a headache memorizing all of these ingredients, components, and whatnot. It’s a small flaw on an otherwise flawless game. I love this series. Everything from the books to the games are just…wow. I don’t want to see it end at all.

☆彡 New DIY project:

  1. Buy a shitload of composition notebooks (and they’re all on sale thanks to back-to-school specials).
  2. Buy different types of fabrics.
  3. Wrap the notebooks in those fabrics.
  4. Tada! Tons of new beautiful books to write in instead of spending $10 each for them at some random store.

★彡 AJ called Dolph “pudding”. I’m pretty sure she is channeling Harley Quinn now. You’re the coolest, AJ *_*! Speaking of WWE, I am conflicted about the SummerSlam results. I should have known Randy Orton would have done that, but I didn’t expect HHH to help him out. As for AJ Lee and Big E losing…it is good for the storyline to have them punished for what happened to Kaitlyn, but I am always going to be disappointed when AJ loses. I don’t even know what to say about CM Punk, Heyman, and Lesner. I’m so done with Heyman though. I can’t wait to see CM Punk puts him to sleep. It’s going to happen. I’m just waiting patiently. Until then, we will just have to see how this McMahon-HHH dictatorship thing goes. Raw was definitely intense this week. I cannot wait for Smackdown.

☆彡 I like ramune because it makes you work hard for that drink. I spend a good 3-5 minutes trying to pop that damn top, but that wave of euphoria when the marble makes that “plunk” noise is uncomparable.

★彡 I have four choices of Zelda games to download to my 3DS: Link’s Awakening, The Adventure of Link, Oracle of Ages, and Oracle of Seasons. I can also say neither, and download that programming application. *sigh* I will likely end up with Oracle of Seasons. I’ll see…

☆彡 I don’t trust anyone who hates pizza.

★彡 I give The Devil Is A Part-Timer credit for having fanservice for both genders. You don’t see that much in animes.

☆彡 If it can go in your mouth, don’t take it out in public…because literally 0.05 seconds after you take it out, someone is going to start begging. Like, Mark and I were in an empty parking lot and the moment he opened his box of cigarettes this dude came out of fucking nowhere begging to bum one. There wasn’t even any cars around but ours in the parking lot! What type of X-Men bullshit…? I bet if we got stabbed or something and started shouting for help, that guy would be nowhere to be found. Damn shame.

★彡 My goal in life is to be like Toriko. I just want to be strong, eat well, and chase ridiculous goals. Seriously, the man wants to cook god and eat him. Compared to him, my goals are attainable. Slightly OT: I was telling Mark that I would literally scream if Guts ever made a cameo in the series. It is very unlikely…but I will still hope for it.

☆彡 Autumn is almost here! I’m so excited for Halloween, and pumpkin everything. I’m more excited about the cool weather though. This summer has been absolute torment. Also, I miss my hoodies. D:

★彡 It is so difficult to re-read Nana because the mangas makes me cry everytime I read them. I am still saddened by the fact that Ai Yazawa pretty much abandoned the series. It’s been about four years without a single update…which means I should really just give up on waiting. Then again, I am a Berserk fan, and we Berserk fans know all about waiting ridiculous amounts of time for manga updates (LOL). So, I’ll just wait. See how it goes~

☆彡 Culinary challenge: master green tea latte and green tea cake recipes.

★彡 I currently own two copies of A Game of Thrones. One I bought when I first wanted to read the series, and the second that came with the boxset I acquired afterwards. Mark told me to sell it…but I think I will wait for someone to say: “Man, I need a new series to get into. I’m thinking ASOIAF…” Then I’ll just yell “READ THIS NOW” and slam dunk the book on whatever surface is nearby. Then I will have someone to fangirl with IRL. I mean…Mark is kind of into the series, but he hasn’t really gone beyond the TV shows. So I can’t talk to him about the shitload of things the TV show left out or changed because of limitations. Yep…waiting, waiting. Yo, if I give someone the book and they tell me that they love Daenerys, I will skip into the sunset. Soon.

Obviously, nothing new or interesting to add this time. I have been abusing this two months of free Hulu thing like nobody’s business. I am so glad it works this time around. My first experience with Hulu was terrible. It probably goes without saying that I will end up subscribing beyond the two months. This means that I will have to subscribe to Gold for the long-term too. I must. They give away two free games every month so long as you are a gold member. If that is not a good deal, I don’t know what is!

Of course, I still have my games to play. ACNL takes up a great deal of my time because I am a perfectionist…a horrible thing to be in this game. LOL. The same goes with The Witcher 2. I react to every quest offered with: “This is such a waste of time. Of course I will.” Put into consideration the character development tree, alchemy, crafting, and upgrading shit constantly and…yeah…I can see myself putting a lot of time into this game. And this is just with Roche’s branch. Once I join Iorveth in my second playthrough, it will be more quests and resources and updating. …Possibly more gambling and prostitutes too. Just another day in Geralt’s life.

Ah well. That’s pretty much it. Same ol’, same ol’.

Take care everyone.

★彡 I wish I could update this thing on a daily basis, but I’ll just try to updates as frequently as possible.

★彡 I am starting my yearly Sailor Moon marathon…by completely skipping the other seasons, and going straight to Sailor Stars. I’m dangerous, guys. Watch out. Skipping seasons over here. On a semi-serious note, this marathon is long overdue. Sailor Moon always erases all the feels I don’t want to feel…except for the times when Usagi starts crying. The Japanese VA for Usagi makes the saddest weeping sounds ever. Then they add that sad violin version of the Sailor Stars theme, and then my heart shatters into a million pieces. Otherwise, this anime continuously purifies my soul every time I watch it. It’s true.

★彡 Then there is Berserk…which tends to do the complete opposite of purifying my soul…but not this week! The gang is finally getting close to Elfhelm! They even saw branches! Branches, son! *throws confetti around* I probably shouldn’t get too excited though. Once more, The Skull Knight’s warning to Guts that Casca may not want what he wants has popped up. It’s definitely foreshadowing…and anyone who thinks for a second that Casca will become herself again and have this big romantic reunion with Guts is immediately pimp slapped by that premonition. It’s the truth. I don’t know why we Berserk fans do this to ourselves. *sigh* Oh, well. October 28th is the next release date, and that’s something to be excited about. Anything is better than seeing ‘Until Next Time’ on the final page of a chapter. The worst feeling in the world.

★彡 Mark and I finally finished season 2 of The Walking Dead. One word: Michonne. Well, yes, there are many other words I have about this series…but mostly Michonne…and “I can’t believe I’m missing the third season”…and more things along those lines.

★彡 There is something that I am really excited about, but I am also super nervous about it. If everything does not go right on Monday, when said event will occur, I will…probably cry. There is a good chance I will cry. I will definitely, 100%, cry. As Mark said, though, I just have to do my best. As long I put my best foot forward, I have the right to be proud of myself. So, I’m going to start preparing now. Even though it’s Friday, I am going to get everything ready. Nothing will go wrong unless some force of nature works against me. I can do this! >_<

★彡 Hulu, please stop being a dick. I want to watch Serial Experiments Lain. Thanks.

★彡 I have to learn to make Moo Goo Gai Pan.

★彡 “Zelda is overrated.” — Peasants

★彡 Halloween is right around the corner. Aw yeaaaah~ Do I know what I want to be? Nope. I don’t know if I’ll even be anything this year. If I had to be something, though, it would be the Cat in the Hat. Actually, I’ve been wanting to be the Cat in the Hat for a long time. And not the disturbing sexy versions of the Cat in the Hat. Just the regular kind. That would be fun.

★彡 As much as I adore Link, he drives me crazy sometimes. He is basically a two year old that never grows up. On one hand, he can be really adorable when he’s off in his own world being curious and clumsy. On the other hand, he has so much energy that he wants to just…attack everything. And, no, you can’t tell a cat to stop. Cats will pause, but they don’t stop. Link will often pause, meow at us, and then continue. It can be tough. Taking care of anything or anyone can be tough.

★彡 As funny as these Big Bird jokes are at times, I am far from laughing at the idea of PBS being gone. It is a very valuable channel. It has raised generations of children and enlightened millions of adults. It’s the type of thing I would like to pass on to my children someday. In many ways, PBS has become a part of our society. I can’t imagine why, of all the of issues in this country, PBS is even in the top 100 things to handle for Mitt Romney. I understand you need to save money…but PBS? *sigh*

★彡 How did I become obsessed with coffee? I used to be completely nonchalant about, and would have a cup every now and again, but now I can’t imagine a day without it. Especially the coffees they sell at the Asian farmer’s markets. It’s so delicious. Fuck…

★彡RANT ALERT. I should do that more often…warn people about that shit. I digress. I am already reluctant to make new friends, but nothing makes me want to say “oh hell no” like being used as some type of token in a person’s weird friend-collecting hobby. In other words, I don’t want to be anyone’s “this is my nerd friend” or “this is my friend who can draw” or “this is my black friend from my collection of black friends”. I’m just Kerri. Take the good in me and the bad in me, or don’t take anything at all. I really don’t want to stand around trying to fit anyone’s stereotype of me. That has to be the most aggravating thing, you know? I never said that because I was shy that I was desperate for friends. I never said that because I preferred not to talk that I had nothing to do but listen to others talk. I definitely didn’t tell anyone that I was pure, innocent, or immune to emotions like anger and sadness. I don’t want to be dragged into anyone’s bullshit. I just want to have a pleasant time wherever I am. That is pretty much my rant.

★彡 I have come to see bad situations as steps rather than walls. I can never ascend this metaphorical staircase called life unless I am willing to trip on a few steps along the way. It happens. What is the point in stopping, or going back to the bottom again? Really, when I look at everything in a staircase mentality, I visualize the importance of the saying ‘keep going’. Whether you’re a logical or emotional person, the only thing that will satisfy you in life is to keep rising.  No matter what.

★彡 I haven’t done a weekly challenge in a LONG time. Wow. I should definitely fix that this weekend…especially considering the fact that I’ve yet to completely pass any challenge. Then again, I set really high goals that I know I will not be able to reach. I should do things more attainable next time — even if they seem to lack challenge at first.

…I really don’t know what else to add…because I’m lazy…and it’s the weekend.

Maybe I will add something tomorrow. For now, I’m just going to do some tumblr then some gaming and then some writing and then I’ll probably end up sleeping when the sun is coming up and hating myself. Yay~

That is it. Good night.
