SEA GODDESS OF MY LIFE

FIERCE AND BEAUTIFUL SEA GODDESS OF MY LIFE

☆彡 I’m really excited about the new Sailor Moon anime. Sometimes I think about the fact that it’s four months away, and I get revved up with energy. I told Mark that if the anime is released on my birthday that we are not going out at all. I’m going to just countdown to the worldwide live stream, and then spend the rest of the day rewatching the same episode repeatedly until he despises anything Sailor Moon related. The thing I love most about this reboot is all the merchandise that it is bringing. If it is ever dubbed and released in America I can imagine seeing plenty of items in local stores, and that’s practically a guarantee that I will be poorer than I already am. I’m not even remotely sad about that. This is going to be great! I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.

★彡 Wardrobe Goal: everything April Ludgate wears in Parks & Recreation. I would also like to adopt that intense yet lovely glare. Aubrey Plaza is precious.

☆彡 I beat Stick of Truth…in two days (*weeps*). I want to replay already. Oh well. Now I’m going through my pile of shame again. It has been more rewarding than I expected. Assassin’s Creed II is so fun that I spent most of my snow days playing it. I only stopped because I decided to tackle Fable 3. Now I am pretty much incapable of leaving it alone even after saving Albion. Again. I will likely move back to Assassin’s Creed II and then continue on to Gears of War. I’m not sure what happens after that. One day at a time, right? It’s not like going through my pile of shame is unpleasant. The only downside is picking up in places I left off months–sometimes years–ago and having no idea what the fuck is going on. I’m afraid to even return to Lost Odyssey because I don’t know where I was, where I’m supposed to go, who is suppose to learn what skill from which character, etc. Yeah, don’t end up like me. Please finish your games before moving on to others. Especially your RPGs. Those side quests will fuck you up.

★彡 I found some old stories that I was working on in 2010. It’s pretty exciting…by my standards. I’m already reviving one of them because I became obsessed with it again after reading the first page. I also found a sketchbook from 2008 that I did not tear any pages out of. It was extremely rewarding. I wish I left more sketchbooks untampered. Ah, well. I plan to revive this sketchbook too. Mark bought me some new colored pencils, markers, and this awesome Hello Kitty pencil case that comes with a built-in sharpener and eraser holder. INFINITE SHOUT OUTS TO MARK. I’m drawing a bunch of shit right now. They look ridiculous at times, but it’s fun.

☆彡 My favorite thing about Attack on Titan was Levi. And Levi. That is it. Just Levi.

★彡 It’s hard to leave Link alone because I know he still struggles with abandonment issues. There is not a day when I leave the house that I do not come home to find him waiting by the window. Although it is  tearful to think about, I often wonder how many of his past owners just left him waiting somewhere and never returned for him. I know the woman who helped us to adopt him was in tears when she begged us to never leave him or return him because he had a rough past. My baby… He tries so hard to be tough and hides away from us sometimes to be alone, but the moment we come home he just jumps around all over the place. I know there is a part of him that is always relieved to know that we actually returned to him. Ah, I love him so much! As much as it pains me to imagine his death, it pains me even more to imagine something unfortunate happening to us and knowing that he will sit by the window waiting for us only to learn that his waiting is fruitless. I hate the idea of that happening. Until the end of his days, I want to be there for him. That is my only goal as his caretaker. Whether he’s bored, hungry, in need of affection, or prepared to pass away I want him to feel that he can depend on me to be there for him. I really love my cat, okay?  TT___TT

☆彡 The new Game of Thrones season is a month away! I’m pretty excited. Did you see how big Drogon, Viserion, and Rhaegal were? And don’t even get me started on Dany. PERFECT KHALEESI OF MY SOUL. I got chills when she said, “They can live in my new world or they can die in their old one.” WIGS BEING SNATCHED! Okay, I’m done. LOL. Naturally, I am expecting some more changes from the book…some changes probably not for the best…but I have no complaints about the cast whatsoever. They do magic with whatever scripts they receive, so I am looking forward to that. Also, I’m relieved that they are adding Coldhands this season. At least I believe that was Coldhands in the trailer. Anyway, good year for TV, video games, music, and fandoms as a whole. …Except for The Witcher 3 being delayed. That pretty much blows. I’ll just have to get my silver-haired hero(ine) fix elsewhere. There is Daenerys, of course. There is Zero. Yeah, that sounds good.

★彡 To me, time and money spent doing something that makes you genuinely happy is not a waste at all. There are too many people on this planet who believe they know what is best for everyone they encounter when they have little to no credentials to make that decision. No one can know a person 100%. You can know someone for 20 years and still be unqualified in terms of making choices for him/her, so a few hours a day is definitely not enough. Some people don’t even have a few hours a day to observe someone–just a few minutes or seconds–and they still believe they have complete understanding of a person. You just have to accept that almost all the people who know you are ignorant to what you truly want out of life, and you also have to accept that as someone who is an expert on your own wants and needs you should should make your own choices. So, give yourself some credit. Do not allow others to tell you that you are not doing things properly in your own life. As long as you are not intentionally harming others, you are doing a good job at managing yourself. That is how I feel about that. Of course, you can completely disregard everything I said in this bullet because I do not know what is best for you. It is that easy. 😛

TL;DR Fuck the haters. Do your best, and take pride in your efforts.

☆彡 Beyonce’s new album is great, but to say that it is the best R&B album ever made is…a stretch. It was, to me, the best R&B album of 2013. Overall, though, I would have to say Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” followed by Lauryn Hill’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” and then Toni Braxton’s self-titled album. One of my personal favorites (though it’s probably not one of the bests to many people) is “Never Say Never” by Brandy. I didn’t even touch on Whitney House, Marvin Gaye, En Vogue, Mariah Carey, Aaliyah, and D’Angelo yet. So…yeah… I have infinite love for Beyonce’s album–and I was incredibly excited when it was suddenly release–but it’s just not “the best” or even in the Top 20 for the best R&B albums of all time. That’s kind of pushing it, brah. 😄

★彡 I’m suspending my lessons in Japanese to work on German. I’m still practicing ASL though. If I had to break language lessons down by difficulty, it would be ASL, German, and then Japanese. ASL is easiest because it’s just learning to replace words with hand motions. No new vocabulary or grammar lessons needed. German is very much like English save for a brand new lexicon to memorize, and some random grammar changes here and there. Japanese is like…learning to speak from scratch. Everything is so different. So, it’s a little hasty to jump from English to Japanese. I know enough bright people who can pull it off (and some who have pulled it off), but I am nowhere near their level of skill. So…baby steps. My goal is to be fluent in those three languages by my 30th birthday. So, that’s a good four years to master that goal. We’ll see if my memory retention disappoints me. Again. LOL

☆彡 If I hear you playing Radiohead, Bjork, or The Smashing Pumpkins I will probably somersault through your window and ask you to tell me everything about your favorite albums. I’m sorry in advance. D:

★彡 I feel bad for anyone who labels me as sweet because they have no idea that I turn into Kainé on my bad days. Whoops. I’m sorry. The good thing is that I don’t go into violent potty mouth mode unless I am faced with the person who intentionally provoked me (OR if I’m dealing with someone who is so insignificant that they are not even worth a single word or second of eye contact from me then I will just ignore them until they finally catch a hint and fuck off). Everyone else will just get a stoic face, one-word replies, and an apology for my mood every other minute.

☆彡 This is my prediction of Wrestlemania XXX. Daniel Bryan is going to defeat Triple H. Naturally, it will not be easy. If Triple H does not cheat then he will just kick ass. Because he’s the goddamn Triple H. Either way, the main event will turn into Daniel Bryan VS Batista VS Randy Orton. I believe Batista will win that. Daniel Bryan will likely beat Randy Orton like it’s his job–again–but Triple H will be pissed about losing and take it out on Daniel Bryan. Batista will take advantage of that in order to win. Yep, I’m going to stick with that theory. I hope that WWE will surprise me with a different plot twist, but that seems to be the general flow of Daniel Bryan pay-per-view matches. As for Brock VS Undertaker…yeah, come on. The Undertaker is going to win. Brock Lesner is not popular enough with the WWE fanbase to do something like break 21-win streak, and not cause a giant rift between fan and company. So, he’s going to lose. Then there’s The Shield and The Wyatt Family. Hmm…that one is tough to predict. Both teams are strong, both teams are headliners, and both teams do not mind cheating in order to win. LOL. So, who knows? If The Wyatt Family happens to win then it could lead to The Shield being brainwashed in the same fashion that Kane and Daniel Bryan were (though it was temporary in Daniel’s case); however, Mark strongly disagrees with that prediction. And he has a point. We believe that The Wyatt Family, like The Shield, is a tool of the authority. We came to this conclusion when Bray Wyatt said “the devil made him do it” after jumping all of those people who pissed of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. So, there really is no purpose in the authority pitting half of their attack dogs against the other half. Still, let’s not forget that The Shield did turn against Kane who is a loyal member of the authority now. Alright. Let’s just do this, I’m going to choose The Wyatt Family because (a) it will be more interesting and cause more controversy, and (b) as much as I love The Shield I love The Wyatt Family even more. I’m drawn to creepy things like crab-walking cult leaders with crazy awesome beards. LOL. We will see how wrong or right I am in April. I will likely ramble on againt about the results as I always do. I cannot help it. This soap opera-esque battle royale realness that WWE has is addicting for some reason. Save me. D:

Okay, I’m going to spend the rest of my weekend not thinking about Dark Souls 2 because I am poor, and probably will not play it for another couple of months. Parenthesis, crying face. There is still quality time I need to spend with my art supplies, Ezio, and this Pokemon marathon I am going through on Netflix thanks to Mark (Kind of OT: Remember when Sabrina’s father showed Ash a family photo that belong to Sabrina in order to hint that he was Sabrina’s father and Ash guessed that he was her photographer and Sabrina’s father was so alarmed by Ash’s stupidity that he literally flew off the bench they were sitting on? Yeah, I’ve been laughing about that for the last hour). He bought Pokemon Y a few days ago, so I never stop hearing about Pokemon. LOL. Now he’s harassing me every day to get Pokemon X. I’m not even kidding when I say he literally wakes up and asks me about getting Pokemon X. So, it’s not even a matter of if anymore but when. *sigh* I’ll do anything for my darling. It will be done. Plus, it’s not like I was not planning to get the game at some point. Why not now?

LET’S DO THIS. [ 3DS PLAYING INTENSIFIES ]

Get The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords For Free + Anime Update

tumblr_m46lb4XjPg1r69bcgo1_500

If you have a Nintendo 3DS just go to the Nintendo eShop before 11:59 PST on February 2nd 2014, and download a free copy of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords. I highly recommend getting your friends to do the same. Multiplayer is the greatest aspect of Four Swords (the single player is still extremely enjoyable). We spent a good 30 minutes tossing each other around and making an unnecessary battle royale out of it. It’s funner than it sounds.

Anyway, happy downloading and playing!

BONUS:

tumblr_mg73fsGGfw1rje37wo1_500

For the anime fans, Hulu Plus added Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. It is often credited as the anime that inspired Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire. It is also another classic from Gainax. Check it out!

(Four Swords and Nadia? I’m officially booked this weekend.)

083: Christmas in the Silent Forest

( Dinnertime at my house. )

☆彡 I cannot stop writing. Mythos has completely screwed up my sleeping schedule…whenever I actually get sleep…but I honestly don’t mind. It feels fantastic to be obsessed with a project again, especially a project that I’ve been working on since middle school. You would think I would just stop by now but nope. I love my characters too much. I love Telluria too much. The plot can change all it wants, but I’m not letting those two things go. Blah blah blah, I’m making good progress.

★彡Finally, I am playing Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and it is a gem. It’s funny. I was picking the game up at Gamestop (It’s $7-8! Buy it! Play it! Listen to the soundtrack, mainly for “Cloud Surfing”!) and the guy at the counter immediately shouted: “THIS GAME IS AWESOME. IT IS SO UNDERRATED. I LOVE THIS GAME.” I feel you, Gamestop guy.

☆彡 Link found some new hobbies that include knocking the trash bin over in the middle of the night, chewing on my books, and gnawing his way into every food packet we hide from him. It’s like living with a 10-lb rat. Joy…

★彡 My favorite part of L.A. Noire is interrogating the fuck out of people. Don’t lie to me, nerd. I’m a video game protagonist. I always win. And if I lose I can restart and make myself win.

☆彡 Don’t talk to me about the season finale of Sons of Anarchy.

★彡 This has been a month of nonstop eargasm. Beyonce, the Drag-on Dragoon 3 soundtrack, and the Lightning Returns soundtrack. *somersaults into the sun*

☆彡 Mark got an early Christmas present: an all-black Nintendo 3DS XL and Fire Emblem: Awakening. He’s pretty much attached to it…which is the only reasonable reaction to have to a new game console tbh. LOL. I’m waiting for him to get Animal Crossing though. We are going to pretty much wage war on each other’s towns.  First, I spam his town bulletin with Spice Girls lyrics. >:D

★彡 Dude, I was watching Nutcracker (1986) and Drosselmeyer reminded me of Papa!Nier. A very creepy version of Nier, yes, but still.

Edit: found a better picture of Nutcracker Nier.

☆彡 You can tell a lot about a person by how they treat those who serve them. Actually, put someone in a room with a person or animal who cannot defend himself/herself (whatever the cause of the limitation), and you will learn all you need to know about that person’s character.

★彡 I really, really, really want to replay Final Fantasy VIII, but I don’t feel like going through totes for my Playstation 2 and setting up the PS2 wires by tugging away the 360 and Wii wires that are already connected. First world problems. I know. I recently remembered that Steam existed, so I’m probably going to go through Steam and just play it online. Why not? I’d pay $10 bucks to play FFVIII whilst avoiding the wiring bullshit.

☆彡 I love buying someone an awesome gift and getting excited over their excitement. Aside from the decorations, that’s the only reason I give a shit about the holidays.

★彡 Princess AJ Lee said that she hit Brie Bella so hard that Brie forgot math. I am crying.

☆彡 “You must unlearn what you have been ‘programmed’ to believe from birth. That software no longer serves you if you want to live in a world where all things are possible.” — Jacqueline E. Purcell (IMPORTANT!!!)

★彡 South Park‘s parody of A Game of Thrones is hilarious. I lost my ability to breathe when the CEO of Sony gave Kenny Sailor Moon’s locket and he became an anime princess, J-pop theme song and all. Excuse me, I’m going to die of laughter again.

I’m gonna kick this winter vacation off right with some 80’s action flicks and writing marathons. Happy holidays, ya’ll. *_*

Kerri & Doing Stuff. Thangs.

This hardly qualifies as an ACNL post since I only have like two pictures, so I’m just going to add it with some other pictures. Let’s see here…

HNI_0028

Kato and Isabelle getting excited about nothing.  😄

Speaking of nothing things to be excited about, T.I.Y. is undergoing construction as I type this. I’m not sure how long it will take, but it is going to be awesome~ Of course, T & T Emporium would be even more awesome~

HNI_0029

Upgraded the room. This is more like my IRL room…minus all the pink and the couch.

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.

TIAC3DP: Part 4

1358631-P_ccQRZwqMUQC8Do

This one was pretty easy to draw, so it didn’t take much time.

1358632-IdCvDt44Sou1u6y-

The recording for this is a little confusing. I know. I was about to start on my ‘air’ drawing, but I got bored and started doodling a mascot. When the mascot got boring, I started drawing Mark. So, this is Mark.

This Is A Colors! 3D Post: Part 1

In the same fashion as my ACNL posts, I will begin posting my drawings from Colors! 3D from time to time with photos + comments.

Since I consider my deviantart page as my digital gallery, I really don’t want to upload my little 3Ds doodles there. Mind you, I am only posting my Colors!3D doodles in here–not pencil and paper doodles. Ever since I watched a video in the app of someone drawing the most beautiful picture I have ever seen in my life with nothing but the Colors! 3D app, I told myself that I can do great things with it if I practice.

So, consider this practice.

It will be mostly Mythos related art since I’m about 100 pages into the story and really obsessed with it. Yes, I am obsessed with my own story. It’s sad. I know. But it does produce art…so it’s a win-win. LOL. Anyway, just two for today. I will add more later.

HNI_0077

I love drawing Elda so much. Probably because I combined a lot of my favorite heroines–both physically and emotionally–into this one character. So, it’s only natural. *pets creepily* Anyway, first picture of my ongoing practicing mission.

HNI_0088

Yo. I’m getting tired of people telling me that Odin has a long nose like it’s not okay. HIS NOSE IS SUPPOSED TO BE LONG. >:U

That’s it for today. I really have to find a way to upload the drawing recordings online. The app actually records every stroke I made and makes a video out of it. It’s really neat! Once I figure that out, I’ll add videos as well.
