Iggy must be thinking about them new recipehs. Or how fine Gladio is. It’s all good.

Anyway, got through a weeklong vacation that was much, much, much needed, and I’m just going through the most memorable moments. Keep in my that I am an introvert, so if you’re expecting a story about me going out in public and interacting with others you will be so disappointment. Oh, boy. So disappointed.

  • FINAL FANTASY XV (aka JUST DUDES BEING BROS XV/JUST BROS BEING DUDES XV). I am in love! The game is not perfect. In fact, I’d give it a solid 8 out of 10 because the main story was so short, but the content that was there was definitely a rollercoaster. I’m happy to hear that Tabata wants to make this game playable for a long time, and plans to drop all kinds of free and paid DLCs throughout 2017. Looking forward to it! Also, looking forward to the New Game + option so I can start the replay I’ve been dying to make since I finished the game. Overall, I am a happy camper. I love this game. ♥
  • Also, that soundtrack is incredible. Yoko Shimomura is a damn genius. Fight me if you disagree. Q( ‘_’ Q)
  • Thanks to FFXV inspiration to write has been through the roof this week! I can’t remember the last time I was up until daybreak because I lost track of time while writing. I think I really needed a gool ol’ FF game to remind me what it is I love about writing in the first place. The fun that comes with building a world, forming bonds between characters, being free to make all the rules you wish–it is so refreshing. I wish I had more time in the day so I could finish the entire story but… a good 25,000-30,000 words will have to do for now. I plan to spend my every break after returning to work doing editing so I can go home and continue working on the rest. I’m excited. I hope I can start adding the story to the website, but I don’t want to do that until I’m 100% sure that I won’t end up scrapping it like I always do. LOL. We’ll see. I love the direction it is taking now though.
  • Yuri!!! On Ice has taken control of my life. You may also fight me again if you don’t love Viktor x Yuri. Also, I can’t believe the delusional people saying that Viktor and Yuri are just really good friends, even after what happened in the 10th episode. LMFAO. Like… breh… come on. Breh. Come. On. It’s canon. Just stop. Come on, breh.
  • I am in love with March Comes In Like A Lion too. I didn’t think an anime about Shogi would be so interesting, but there it is.
  • I’m like… 30 episodes into Monster which is a fucking miracle. I’ve been starting and dropping both the manga and anime for a few years now. This is the farthest I’ve come. I wish I had stuck it through a long time ago. It’s a really good series that deserves all the acclaim it received. How is this anime/manga not an American movie yet is really alarming to me. It feels just like one.
  •  Why is The Last Guardian and everything else Fumito Ueda makes so amazing. I can’t do this anymore.
  • I LOVE MY CHRISTMAS TREE. AND SO DOES LINK. STOP ATTACKING THE FUCKING TREE, LINK.
  • I haven’t touched Tales of Zestiria or Skyrim during my whole vacation and I probably won’t for a while because FFXV is so precious to me. Whoops~
  • I don’t even know what else to say. I got so much sleep and watched so much good stuff and played so much FFXV and wrote so much and I’m just really happy. I can’t wait to get Christmas and New Years breaks, and I can’t wait until I accumulate more PTO so I can do this again. Maybe I’ll wait until Mass Effect: Andromeda to roll around, or FFVII Remake. Or Persona 5. I don’t know. There are so many games I want to play until I hate myself when they come out. I’m looking forward to it. …Not hating myself but you know.

I think that’s about it. I plan to make a more detailed review of FFXV when the time comes, but honestly I want to tackle the DLCs that are supposedly being released this month to see if they add more to the game or not. I’ll see. Really, I want to get into the spoilers… more specifically that ending. Ugh, all the tears. I can’t do this right now. -.-

Alright then. I’m off. Happy Holidays if I don’t get around to it later! ♥

 

P.S. It’s snowing on my blog again! #blessed (LOL)

“If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”

  • Look at this peaceful cat. He has zero stress, all of his bills are paid, he’s eating and drinking right, he found the meaning of life, he got a bonus at his cat job, etc. He also kind of reminds me of Jeff Bridges. I don’t know why.
  • Bioshock Infinite is free on Xbox 360 if you have gold. Spread the word ASAP.
  • I’m usually resistant to massive overhauls on websites (because I have the soul of a grumpy old lady when it comes to unexpected changes), but I love Grooveshark’s new layout a lot. I like the new Youtube app on XBox Live a lot too. It’s really clean~ I can’t wait for more clean updates on other websites~
  • I haven’t been in the loop of things lately, so I just found out today that Mirjana from ANTM was murdered. This is terrible news. She was a beautiful girl that was more than capable of achieving her dream to be a model. I hope her killers get punished thousands of times over for this. RIP Mirjana.
  • I decided to check out Birdman and Whiplash because the plots sounded interesting, and I’m glad that I did. Of the two I would have the say that Whiplash blew my mind the most. It really puts into perspective the importance of resilience. And even though I’m not gushing as much about Birdman that does not take away from it’s brilliance. I always love stories where the protagonist’s enemy is his/her own self. That’s probably why Amadeus and Donnie Darko ended up being my favorite movies. 😛
  • Honestly, if I had $400 right now to buy any console I wanted I would not know which one to get. Here are some things I am putting into consideration:
    • Playstation 4: I haven’t had a Sony console in many, many years, so I don’t want to keep dragging my foot until a PS5 comes along; however, it is the most expensive console out there, and I’m not sure it is 100% worth it (maybe 95%) when I look at the current game selection it has. I see myself playing Type-0, playing tons of PS classic games (XENOGEARS THO), but… that’s about it. The Witcher 3 will not come around ’til May or so. No one knows when FFXV will get here. No one knows when KH3 will get here. I’m not really interested in most of the FPS out right now (though Mark is). There is FFXIV but MMOs are a huge commitment to me. Also, those monthly fees? NOPE. I’m thinking I should get a cheaper console first then get a PS4 later in the year. I don’t know.
    • Wii U: Nintendo games are always fun… but outside of Zelda and Metroid games that is all that they are. A lot of fun. Little else. Still, they always have the best multiplayer games. I played Hyrule Warriors and that one was difficult to part with. The same goes for Mario Kart 8. I haven’t heard anything about recent Mario Party games, but I never get tired of those. I can see Mark and me having a shitload of fun times with those, especially now that he has left BAM. These are things I should definitely consider. I should also consider that new Zelda and Starfox games are coming out soon. So, a Wii U is not even optional anymore, is it? LOL. I refuse to be late when it comes to this new Zelda game. REFUSE.
    • New Nintendo 3DS x2: For $400 Mark and I can get two of the new Nintendo 3Ds consoles. That would provide us with a console that is both strong in the single and multiplayer department. Additionally, I did trade in my 3DS for Dragon Age: Inquisition a while ago (no regrets), and it’s about time to replace it. I have no handheld consoles right now. I also have my 3DS XL games still… so it’s kind of lame that I have no means of playing them outside of Mark’s 3DS. Then there’s Majora’s Mask. Then there’s Xenoblade Chronicles. Then there’s Alpha Sapphire. A lot of games to play without even mentioning all of the items in their shop.
    • Final Decision: None. I’m about to kick myself in the ass because in a matter of months I’ll have the funds to get one of these things, and yet I have no idea which one because I’m so indecisive. But it is better to dwell on it for weeks instead of buying a console (or consoles) that I will regret purchasing. Not regret as in a “this console sucks” way. It is more of a timing issue. If I have to wait another year or so to get another one then I should really choose a console that will have the most to offer. Either way, poor XBox 360. It’s likely going to end up in the living room, collecting dust with my Wii. LOL
  • Added three new books to my pile: “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, “Never Let me Go”, and “Murder on the Orient Express.” When I talk to other bookworms they’re always shocked that I haven’t read those books yet, so I’m going to start. Eventually :I. BTW, it’s time for another bookshelf. Looking forward to it. I’m going to organize the shit out of this apartment just in time for the whole Spring cleaning thing.

I’m going to end this with two of my favorite things: bibimbap and Link in a shirt. :OOOOOO

 

20150320_175158

Counterclockwise: bibimbap (this is the cold version compared to the hot pot version–or dolsot bibimbap, I believe), rice, kimchi, that red bottle is the sweet/spicy sauce you add to the dish, then miso soup, and then some vitamin water. All for around$7-8. If you’re not eating at Assi every once in a while then you are missing out. They always have great, authentic Asian meals with a lot of items to enjoy for half of what you would pay at other restaurants. If Assi is in your area you should give ’em a try. 🙂

 

20150326_193725

We never put clothes on Link, but when we saw this shirt at the thrift store for $2 we thought about how cute it would look on Link and we were right. It’s the cutest thing ever. The only downside is that he gets so angry about it that he’ll keep randomly biting us until we remove it. XDD

 

 

091: Did You Know My Head Is At Your Crotch Level? I’m Trying Not To Think About It.

✪ Personal Life ✪

Honestly, my personal life is just waiting for Dragon Age: Inquisition. I have not been “here” since I preordered that game, so…there is that.

 

✪ Art & Writing ✪

Not much writing or drawing. I did start on a story for NaNoWriMo, but I doubt I will get it done in time. Especially with DA:I coming out in less than ten days. More than likely, I’ll keep working on the story because I am really enjoying it. It’s about a girl who is desperate for a job, and ends up accepting an assistant position for a supervillain. She knows that the supervillain is a horrible person, but the pay is amazing and she gets a lot of cool yet weird perks…like minions to clean her house and stuff. I have never really tackled a comedy story before, so it’s fun. TBH it feels more like a manga. I think I will start drawing it pretty soon. Of course, I am always working on Mythos The Millennium Sorceress, so that’s all good. All is good in the creative world~

 

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

  • …What the fuck is Terraformars? Mark and I were in tears over the jacked cockroaches, but we eventually decided to just overlook the overabundance of muscles in this anime and get into the story. Then came the censorship. It might be Crunchyroll, but every time a gruesome death happens this black bar blocks out everything. So that pissed us off. We are interested in the story. That is the aggravating thing. We just cannot stop laughing at the things we consider ridiculous, and then the fucking black bars on everything. *sigh* The shit I put up with to follow a plot. It really makes no sense sometimes.
  • I’m really getting into Wolf Girl and Black Prince. I know Erika and Sata are going to inevitably end up together, but Kusakabe is so adorable. If given the option between someone mean like Sata, and a sweetheart like Kusakabe then I would choose the latter. That might make me “boring” but oh well.
  • I finished the Aku no Hana anime and decided to move on the manga to see what happened after that ending. Yeah…I thought Takao and Sawa were messed up, but nope. Saeki is slowly taking that cake.
  • Because Mark won’t stop bugging me about it I am reading All You Need Is Kill. It better be as flawless and amazing as he claims. -_-

 

✪ Video Games ✪

  • After I trade in my 3DS they announce the Majora’s Mask 3D game. *internal screaming* I’m kidding. It’s cool since (a) Mark still has his 3DS, (b) Majora’s Mask won’t get here until Spring 2015, (c) I got Mark a copy of Fantasy Life with the trade-in credit (He is 1000% in love with that game BTW. I never stop hearing about it. LOL), and (d) I got to preorder the ultimate Dragon Age: Inquisition with the rest. Speaking of DA:I…
  • HOLY FUCK I’M EXCITED. I honestly did not think I would be able to play it until next year because…well…I just rarely have the funds to buy games on the first day. Or I do have the funds but my frugality makes it impossible for me to enjoy the game without guilt because it is over $20. Either way, I did not foresee myself getting DA:I on the first day, better yet the ultimate edition with all the preorder goodies. Sometimes I see the 18th on the calender and I have to remind myself that there is a copy at Gamestop actually waiting there for me. Maybe to play at midnight. I don’t know. The last time I went to a midnight release was for Final Fantasy XIII, so it has been a while. Man…less than ten days. If I could just fast forward time that would be great.

 

✪ Books ✪

  • What I love about Haruki Murakami is how gradually he includes supernatural elements into his stories, as if they have always been there and the reader is just learning about it through someone else’s story. In other words he has a talent for seamlessly including the supernatural into everyday normal life without it coming off as an obvious fantasy story. That is something I can kind of relate to. Growing up, I believed a bunch of weird things like aliens living amongst us and turning into their true forms the moment I turned my back. Because of that I used to carry around compact mirrors as a kid in hopes of catching one of them mid-transformation. I also used to believe what Aomame believes about crossing dimensions unknowingly, and like her that assumption was triggered when I did not know something that everyone else around me considered common knowledge. I…was a weird kid. Scratch that, I am still weird. Knowing all of that, it is nice to find the works of authors who use their weirdness to create beautiful stories. It has a purpose outside of constant ostracization and being badgered with questions about my thinking process! LOL
  • The World of Ice and Fire is greaaaat~ I am only borrowing it right now, but I would love to buy it, take my time examining all the beautiful art, and reading every little detail about GRRM’s world. It is inspiring. My imagination has been a little lifeless lately, but it grows vivid the moment I am introduced to someone else’s imagination. The mind is a beautiful thing. I must never let it go to waste. That is something I am learning each time I experience the joy of reading another person’s story.

 

✪ Music ✪

  • Find Drag-on Dragoon 3 DLC OST. Add “Chaotic Song”, “Better End”, “Tsukiru/Exhausted”, “This Silence is Mine”, and “Kuroi Uta/Black Song” to my queue. Put that shit on repeat for the rest of my life. That has pretty much been my  music activity. The originals are great on their own (Well, Chaotic Song was originally Thirteenth Chapter Final in Drag-on Dragoon 1, and it was just a bunch of bells…but it is unique. I don’t mind listening to it), but to hear them reprised into battle themes is just god tier shit.
  • I really love Pogo’s remixes. “Psycho Soup” is great, and gives me hope that he will remix more video games in the future. Maybe anime too. Who knows? He always surprises me with his songs. My favorite remix is still “Hundred Acre Rain” though. Instant picker upper.

 

✪ TV & Movies ✪

  •  Maleficent – Eh… It was okay. I am liking this new Disney trend of princesses being rescued by someone other than a prince though. I love princesses like Mulan and Tiana who save themselves, but a princess being rescued by a family member or villain is a fresh angle too.
  • The Edge of Tomorrow – Not bad at all. Since Mark insists the story/manga is better I will read that.
  • WWE – I’m playing catch up right now. I’m also crossing my fingers and hoping that the authority crumbles.
  • South Park – I’m not sure what is happening, but I barely laughed in recent episodes. This happens sometimes. The creators of SP try so hard to express their opinion on political issues that they kind of overlook the comedy aspect. Oh well…
  • ANTM – It’s getting to a point where I don’t want anyone to get eliminated because I like them all. Raelia leaving just sucked, man. She should definitely keep modeling no matter what.

I’m sure I watched other things, but I can’t remember them all right now.

 

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

Before I go, I’d like to remind all the people who like to command strangers to watch their shit while they use the bathroom to beware of individuals like me. Because we will laugh, walk away, and leave your shit sitting there. Or if you meet someone like my past co-worker, he will straight up toss your shit in the trash. Lesson: pretend that your parents raised you properly. It takes a few seconds to say, “Hey, I’m sorry to bother you, but can you watch my drink while I take a piss?” Most of the time, someone will say: “Sure,” and be glad to help someone out. But if you just go to a stranger and bark: “Watch my drink!” (which happened to me) then…yeah. Your drink is going to get abandoned, and if someone cleaning up asks me if the drink is mine I’m just going to say nope. Then you can spend another $3 at Burger King getting a large drink because you had to be a dick and order around people who have no obligation to obey you. Whomp whomp.

Aaand I’m off. I got some mangas to catch up on.

✪ Personal Life ✪

Well, things are improving. Finally.

The issue with HR was sorted out with surprisingly zero issues… minus the long time it took. I wish I could say the same for USPS. It turns out that the reason I haven’t been receiving mail for three months is because some genius marked my home as “unoccupied” in their system. The manager at USPS was baffled. My landlord was baffled. Mark and I were definitely baffled. It was just…a really stupid and senseless mistake. The thing is that you cannot mark a home as unoccupied unless the carrier speaks with the landlord about changing the status. Well, the landlord said she never spoke to any carrier about the status of our apartment, better yet it being unoccupied. Like us, she thought it was stupid that they would change the status when we have been living in the same place for like six years now. As before the carriers and workers at USPS had zero explanation for their fuck ups besides some shrugged shoulders and promises to “look into it”. I don’t want anyone to get fired over this, but the person responsible should at least get mandatory retraining or something. This is not a mistake where a slap on the wrist is sufficient. They really screwed A LOT of shit up for me. Then again, if the head of our local USPS is practically brain dead then I cannot be surprised that their carriers and front desk clerks are not far behind. We spoke to them at least twice a week for the last three months, yet it took them THIS long to notice the issue. Management said it wasn’t difficult to research…so…what the fuck? I’m especially livid about it all because I asked them multiple times to check the status of our address. I kept asking: “Can you see if there is a redirection notice? An illegal change of address? Is our home marked as unoccupied or something?” And they kept telling me he same shit: “No. We don’t see any issues.”

Do you want a karate chop to the neck?
Because that is how you get a karate chop to the neck.

*ShojiMeguro_DeepBreathDeepBreath.mp3*

Ranting aside, it was all sorted out finally. We woke up to three months worth of mail stuffed in our mailbox, minus everything that was sent back–which we received a lot of calls about. I am still missing a package but luckily it was just some cell phone covers that I paid like $2.00. Actually, nothing was over $5 save for my Final Fantasy VII Ultimania book that took the longest to arrive. I ordered it back in March. Just got in this month. I did contact all of the sellers and paid them for all of the refunds and re-shipments they made which made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. No sarcasm. It really did. Every single seller was shocked when I offered to pay them for the packages that arrived. They said most people would just take it and not say anything. It was nice to be called an honest person, but it’s still pretty weird to me that someone would do otherwise. Theft doesn’t stop becoming theft because the person you steal from is unaware of it. This seems more like common sense than integrity to me.

Anyway, I’m glad all of that is out of the way. Here is a pic of the FFVII Ultimania BTW:

 

20140821_181244

 

I really love it! The only problem is that I can’t read Japanese for shit, so all I can really do is rely on online translations and the pretty pictures inside. My favorite part of the book is the listing of every weapon and accessory. IT IS FUCKING GLORIOUS. I would love to get the Chrono Cross Ultimania next, but after this whole issue with USPS and the fact that it’s like $40…. I’ll have to wait. But it’s going to be next. And, dammit, I will learn Japanese if it kills me!

Okay, that’s all I have to contribute from my personal life.

Actually, one more thing. In this past week alone I had two dreams about Dean Ambrose and one about Roman Reigns.  In the first dream I had about Dean Ambrose he was buying makeup at a flea market for some reason? I remember telling him that I was getting bored, so he was like “Ok, I’ll drop you off at home” and he drove me home on a roller coaster. LOL. Okay? The second one was equally weird. I dreamt that I was crying about something and Dean just showed up and said: “Come on. I’ll get you some tea at my condo.” So we take the bus to his condo and it was in this Las Vegas-looking building that was in the middle of the fucking suburbs where I live. So, I went to his condo and we were drinking tea and he was ranting to me about Seth Rollins betraying him. Even in my dream, I said something along the lines of: “Dean, what does this have to do with anything?” and he said it was really similar. No, Dean. No. LOL. As for the Roman Reigns one, I was in this militarized group that was fighting bandits in the future (I blame Borderlands 2 for this one), and Roman Reigns was a war hero that no one saw for years, and I stumbled on him sitting in the snow, just chillin and shit. So, I was like: “Dude, everyone is looking for you,” and he just shrugged and started talking to me about how weird it was that Earth had like ten moons???

Seriously, what the fuck? My dreams are so dumb. Like, I’m glad that I can remember most of them (or my dream diary would be useless), but they provide little to no insight on anything besides the fact that I am too deep into WWE and I should lay off video games for a little bit.

Okay, that’s it. -_-

 

✪ Art & Writing ✪

I’ve been doing plenty of writing and, surprise, it’s not “Mythos”! *throws confetti*

I am working on a comic book about a super-heroine. I am sure that with the gazillion superheroes between DC and Marvel alone that her name and powers will be nothing unique, but my mission is not to be unique. It is to just tell a story.

I am still working on Mythos but not as much as I would like to. I might be avoiding it on purpose. Everything is getting really sad in the story. Actually, the whole story is like Nier sad. I’m not about to change it or anything, but I guess deep down I wanted to work on something a little more upbeat.

That’s been about it.

 

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

I really have nothing to add here. Aside from the recent Berserk update, I haven’t really been reading any mangas.

As far as animes, SAILOR JUPITER HAS GRACED MY LIFE WITH HER RE-PRESENCE.

That’s all that matters. ( ; w ; )

 

✪ Video Games ✪

LOTS of Borderlands 2. I am playing as a mechromancer/Gaige. I started off as a siren/Maya, but I ended up replaying everything as a mechromancer once I got my siren to Sanctuary. I really love Deathtrap a lot although the phaselock ability is pretty neat too. BTW, Mark tried playing with a psycho and he told me that he shouted: “Look me in the eyes when I scream at your soul!” or something really disturbing like that. I could not stop laughing. He also told me about a story where the psycho character attempted to hold a conversation with Maya, but could not articulate his thoughts, so he shouted: “I’m the conductor of the poo-poo train!” I’m so done with Borderlands 2. LOL. That game can go from dark to hilarious so fast, especially when Claptrap gets involved. And half the shit psychos yell are disturbingly funny too. Yeah, I love that series. I hope it goes on forever.

Really, I’ve been thinking about that new LoZ 2015 game and The Witcher 3 nonstop. How am I going to get a Wii U and PS4 within the next year? And then there is *ANOTHER* 3DS coming out with Xenoblade Chronicles and customizable plates and customizable menus. The moment I heard the news I pretty much said “Wow? Seriously, Nintendo? You guys are dicks!” and then I immediately started planning ways to get it anyway. LOL. I hate video games but I also love video games but I also hate video games but I also love video games. This is not a good relationship to have with anything.

 

✪ Books ✪

At this point,  I am going through my bookshelf and rereading all of the books I am fond of…which has pretty much been Haruki Murakami and a bunch of classics. I realized that I have a ton of workbooks for different languages that I haven’t even touched yet. I have the German, Japanese, and ASL books set aside so I can start brushing up on them again. Mark is willing to learn German with me for the sole purpose of speaking German angrily at inappropriate times. That should be fun. I know German is often considered the “angry-sounding language”, but I really like the sound of it. It’s also way easier to learn than most languages I’ve come across. It would be nice to be fluent in something else besides English.

 

✪ Music ✪

I really love the Guardians of the Galaxy OST. Not just the “Awesome Mix”, but also the score. I’m pretty much obsessed with “To the Stars”, “Black Tears”, and “Groot Spores”. “To the Stars” is perfect writing and drawing music. I pretty much keep it on loop while I’m working on one or the other. Outside of that I haven’t really been listening to much else.

Yes, I am aware that the VMAs aired recently, but outside of Beyonce’s performance I really didn’t care to catch up on whatever else happened there. BTW, I’m laughing because people really think that “The Beygency” is not legit. Like, some idiot decided to make fun of Blue Ivy’s hair on BET and got ruined by the beyhive faster than (s)he could apologize. Do you think this is a motherfucking game? The beyhive is not playing.

But that is not new news. Onwards.

OBSESSED WITH FKA TWIG’S LP1. OBSESSED. You know you’re going to be in love with an album when you get hooked on the prelude. LOL. I cannot recommend it enough. It’s like Aaliyah crossed with Massive Attack crossed with some dubstep but not an intolerable amount. Beautiful.

 

✪ TV & Movies ✪

I finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy! I’m already planning to see it again.

I can’t even pick a favorite character at this point. Peter “Starlord” Quill is a funny cutie with superb taste in music. Gamora is a gorgeous assassin cutie. Groot is a precious wooden cutie. Rocket Raccoon is just an all-around cutie. Drax is a cutie for so many reason but mostly because he’s oblivious to the point of being adorable and he’s Batista. I love them all. I even love Ronan and Nebula as evil cuties. Perfect ensemble is perfect. And cuties. * w *

Outside of shameless Guardians of the Galaxy fangirling I haven’t really been watching much. A bunch of season premieres are starting in September so I’ll have to do a bit of waiting before I can start catching up on some shows again. I’m looking forward to South Park the most. This summer has been pretty much nonstop adoration for Stick of Truth and rewatching every South Park episode. I never get tired of that show. Ever. From the looks of things, I don’t get tired of the game either. That Goldeneye-type South Park game for the N64 was pretty serious too.

 

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

Hmm…I don’t know what else to add. I’m just working on my projects, playing my games, the usual. I make it all sound like it’s nothing but I do not want to imagine a life where I cannot write, draw, and/or play games on a daily basis. That would just suck more balls than…whatever or whoever sucks a lot of balls.

I’m still pretty bummed about Robin Williams, but reading the Time magazine dedicated to him made me feel better. For so long I relied on comedians like him to get me through rough times, and I don’t think I should just disregard his legacy by writing him off as someone who makes me sad. There are so many stories about him going out of his way to make people smile, even when he was suffering. I think as a lifelong fan of his the best way I could honor this…effing genius of a performer is to cherish his work. That should be his legacy, and not the heinous mental illness that took his life and the lives of so many great people.

So… I have nothing else to add except treasure the people who make you smile. Seriously. It could be your parent or that neighbor who always has a funny story to tell. It doesn’t matter. Just treasure the people who give you something to look forward to while they are here. Yeah…that’s all I have to add.

I’ll (probably) feel better next time. ^_^;

✪ Personal Life ✪

Let me begin with this: I fucking hate mosquitos and learning that there is one in my home from all the itchy welts that popped up out of fucking nowhere is irritating as fuck. It’s fine. Link will kill it soon enough. Bye, Felicia.

Outside of mosquit0-loathing, life has been…hot. Every year I tell myself I will not cut my hair in the summer, and every summer I find myself standing outside of barber shops and contemplating it. This year, though, I will hold off. It’s a pain to become dependent on bands, clips, and pins for the next 2-3 months but…anything beats a sweaty neck. I mean, sweating in general grosses me out but when the back of my neck is sweaty it makes me want to scream. Another fine example of me being overemotional about silly things, but completely unemotional about the things I am supposed to express some feeling towards. *shrug* Oh well.

Ah, what else? Debating about getting another cat. Our only concern is Link. He is very territorial. There are many times when he’ll claim something of ours as his own and he’ll bite us if we try to take it. Yep…big ol’ adorable douchelord. LOL.

My microwave and stove decided to die at the same time. Yay!

The final thing. This probably belongs in the art section, but fuck it. My new obsession has become decoden. It started when I was looking for some cute covers for my 3DS, and it ended with me realizing that I could make my own covers for 1/4 of the average price. All you really need is a clear plastic cover for like $2 on Amazon and some decoden with glue. Websites like Sophie & Toffee offer a huge variety of inexpensive decoden. I love all the pearls, rhinestones, diamonds, and bows. Anything pink with leopard-print is cute too. It’s all really fun. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to decorate their phones, handheld consoles, laptops, etc. Of course, practice is necessary. I am a colossal newbie so I am still working hard and refusing to show anything in public until I am happy with it. When I am through, though, I would love to possess the skills to make something like this or this. Ah! Cutesy things will be the death of me! *_*

That is all for now. If I find any other weird hobbies to get into I’ll post about it. XD

 

✪ Art & Writing ✪

Art has been…technical. A lot of maps. A lot of poorly sketched cities/towns. Things like that. The more I work on Mythos, the more I realize that a world that massive needs a bit of planning before I start delving into the story.

Speaking of story, I somehow went from a set title and a set amount of books to pretty much tossing it all in the air. At this point Mythos is just a working title because Odin is no longer the main character. In fact, he does not even exist until the second book. The biggest premise of Mythos now is Elda’s life over her 1,000 years. I would like one book for every 100 years that she lives. Naturally, Telluria changes a great deal over the course of the story. It starts off Westeros-ish, turns Ivalice-ish, and then becomes heyday Zanarkand-ish before it all goes to shit–much like Zanarkand. LOL

Still…I am worried that I am biting off more than I can chew. Writing and reading about immortals or anyone else who lives for a very long time is enjoyable. That is all that matters, right? Enjoy it and write the type of story I would want to read.

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

In terms of anime, It’s been 1990s Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon Crystal, Knights of Sidonia, Sword Art Online II, and season 2 of Free. Oh, and Dirty Pair. I haven’t seen that anime in years, so it is nice to rewatch Kei and Yuri being the adorable failures that they are. LOL. Manga-wise, I am still waiting for another Berserk update. I am trying to find another manga to get into but nothing has really piqued my interest. Oyasumi Punpun kind of wore me out emotionally by the time I was done. This time around I want to read something more upbeat like a shoujo manga. I’ll do my hunting later. -.-

 

✪ Video Games ✪

I downloaded FFVII on Steam for five bucks, and that has pretty much been my video game life ever since. I also managed to get Sonic 2 for $3-4 but that Chemical Plant Zone level pisses me off like nothing else. It has been this way since time immemorial. The first time I played Sonic 2 like 5,000 years ago I zipped through Emerald Hill Zone, got stuck on Chemical Plant Zone for like five days, and zipped through the rest of the game once I managed to beat it. WHY. What messes me up are those blocks that disappear and return, and those moving platforms that I always miss. So my dumbass always end up falling in the ocean and drowning. Fun. *sigh* Oh, well. At least I am still a somewhat natural at FFVII. Really, it is just an RPG at the end of the day. Unless you just suck at forming strategies then RPGs are usually child’s play compared to other types of video games. At least to me.

Um, what else? Portal 2 is on sale too! $6! Of course, it’s great to see that GLaDOS is still a raging asshole.

Yep… Summertime is the best time for poor/cheap gamers. So many price reductions! ♥

The cheapest way to enjoy games though? Youtube. I live on Youtube because of all the game walkthroughs on there. The first one I buckled down and watched was Drakengard 3. Yeah, I couldn’t wait anymore. I am not getting a PS4 any time soon. Anyway, I loved it! Zero is my queen! Every time she said something I just had to sigh and say: “You’re amazing, Zero.” LOL. In type Drakengard-Nier fashion there were different branches to the story. I want to say branch A is the “true” branch because it pretty much explains the start of The Cult of the Watchers in Drakengard, but branch D seems like the best one to me. Besides, the novella pretty much confirms –SPOILER: the existence of One’s brother— so the fact that he does not show up in branch D does not mean that he does not exist. Also, I like any branch where — SPOILER: Zero and Mikhail survives.  Overall, not bad at all. I haven’t watched any of the DLCs yet but I will.

Beyond, DOD3 I watched Burial at Sea and Deadpool as well. I want to watch Lightning Returns but the playlist has like 90 40-minute videos. Fuck it. I’ll watch it then move on to Assassin’s Creed 4 and Tomb Raider. Once I get the funds I’ll actually play some of these games. They look so fun! BTW: I recommend GameOXO. (S)he plays well and there is no annoying commentaries to deal with. I know some people like commentaries but…eh. Only a few people are actually funny. Other ones are just meh. It depends, I guess. I hear a lot about pewdiepie but I haven’t watched any of his videos yet. I’ll try.

Okay, that wraps up gaming. Lots of good games to play/watch, so I’m happy in this department! ^_^

 

✪ Music ✪

I’ve been listening to the same stuff on repeat. As usual. I do like Lana Del Rey’s “Ultraviolence” album a lot, but that’s pretty much been it.

 

✪ TV & Movies ✪

AJ Lee is back. Y2J is back. Roman Reigns is still the fierce king of my soul. Yep, all is good WWE-wise.

As for Game of Thrones, that season was…meh. If it is true that they’re going to wrap up the show without waiting for GRRM to release the last two books then I am really worried. The liberties they took so far have been pretty disappointing. It is not even a stay-true-to-the-book thing because some shows and movies can better then the books they are based on. It is more of a “Okay, so you’re really going to do that?” thing. Maybe it will all piece together. We’ll see.

I’m still into the 2011 Journey to the West TV show from China. The same goes for the JttW movie from Stephen Chow. Yes, this has been a very JttW year though some of it has been disappointing. Oh well. Can never get enough Sun Wukong.

Saw the new Transformers movie. Let’s just say that if anyone ever wants to torture information out of me feel free to play that movie on a neverending loop. 😐

Yeah…that’s about it. Tonight I plan to watch “Extant” because (a) Halle Berry plays the main character, and (b) it’s a sci-fi TV show with an interesting premise. Let’s see how that goes.

 

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

My birthday arrives in nine days. *shudders* Yeah, once I hit 25 birthdays stopped becoming fun. I mean, Mark is 30 next year. My bb is getting old, and I’m always two years behind him. Blah. What can I do, right? All I want is to improve as a human being every single day. I’ve learned that it is pointless to say things like “I want to ____ when I’m 27!” or “I better have _____ when I’m 30!” Life is one of those things you can never plan for. Looking back, I had books upon books of plans that ended up in the trash because life pretty much said “nope” and curb stomped every plan I had without mercy. I am done with destinations and deadlines. I have dreams, I have goals, and I have infinite means of becoming a better person. That is the best I can do.

…By the way, I am already receiving the dreaded: “Oh, you’re turning 27 this year? When are you going to have a baby?” questions, and it makes me want to break my face on a brick wall. Please stop. ;_;

All of that said, I am off! Lame entry–or at least lamer than the usual lameness. I know.

Take care~

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. XD

★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 ]

Retron 3 SNES/NES/Genesis Game System

Yes, it plays NES, SNES and Sega Genesis games. You can order it here.

Excuse me while I unpack some boxes of cartridges I thought I’d never play again whilst crying uncontrollably.

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.)

084: Maybe I’m Wasting My Young Years

tumblr_mzcffteEdl1rj7o42o1_500

☆彡 I have bangs now. My forehead is warm. I’m easily amused.

★彡 Sometimes I think about Marrymore from Super Mario RPG and I get happy because it’s an entire village dedicated to weddings. Can you imagine having the worst day ever, going to Marrymore, watching all these happy couples getting married, and feeling infinitely happier? One of the greatest villages in video game history.

☆彡 My cat ears beanie cap finally came, so naturally I must wear it 24/7.

★彡 I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks Jade Curtiss is a little shit. In an endearing way, of course.

☆彡 I wish I had some type of health fairy who would smack junk foods out of my hands the moment I try to eat them. Or I could use a little thing called self-control. That works too.

★彡 I’m glad Batista is back and all, but…what the fuck was that Royal Rumble? Roman Reigns didn’t win? Not even CM Punk? What the hell is this?

☆彡 I have a strange relationship with music. On one hand I am eager to hear as much as possible; however, on the other hand, I am hesitant to listen to new songs because I am always content with the collection I have. In other words, I tell myself that it is not possible for music to get any better than the music I already love. It’s overwhelming–in a pleasant way–to go on websites like 8tracks, listen to a bunch of amazing playlists, and realize that I haven’t even scraped the surface of what life-changing music is. Music is great, isn’t it? Finding new songs to love is the aural equivalent of finding money on the ground, and you feel just as rich at the end of the day.

TL;DR I’m getting emotional about music again. Sorry. ( ; w ; )

★彡Finally saw Elysium and Kick-Ass 2. I liked them both, but they needed more Hit Girl. Yes, Elysium too. If Hit Girl was there Matt Damon wouldn’t have half the problems he had in that movie. Slightly OT: I wonder who swears more: Hit Girl or Kaine. That’s a tough call to make. I’m leaning more towards Kaine though. I’m completely passive to swearing, but when I heard her chewing Grimoire Weiss out in that intro my jaw dropped. 

☆彡 Nothing ever breaks on me when I’m in the middle of doing nothing important. It’s always when I’m in the middle of something extremely serious.

★彡 Played the Lightning Returns demo today. For some reason, the FFXIII series always gets better in terms of gameplay, but seems to fall short everywhere else. The new battle system is NICE. I want to say it’s like a more customizable version of the paradigm shifts. In the middle of battle Lightning can change into different roles that you can customize almost endlessly. You can choose attacks, accessories, weapons, outfits, etc. for each role, so it’s really awesome in that aspect. Story-wise… I’ll just say it’s what you expect from FFXIII-anything. There is a lot going on. Some familiar faces (or voices in Hope’s case) were there. Lightning is still cool. Honestly, I won’t be going to any midnight releases or anything for this one. I’ll probably pick up a used copy once it falls into the $20 or less range just to enjoy the battles. I don’t see myself enjoying much else. It’s almost heartbreaking to speak so harshly about anything FF-related because I am a massive FF fan. Games, soundtracks, figurines, clothing, trading cards, posters, wall scrolls, keychains–you name it…but I’m just not feeling the FFXIII universe outside of the battle system, music, and some of the characters. I hope I fall completely head-over-heels for FFV. I really want to.

☆彡 Mark is such a fucking dweeb. It was snowing the other day, and he started pretending that he was casting random ice-related spells from various video games. All I could do was stand there smiling and thinking: “Yep. This is the guy I vowed to stick with until I die.” After that I jumped him for his lunch money and we bought coffee with it. Marry a nerd. 10/10. Would recommend.

★彡 Nothing makes me nervous like empty notebooks. I always try to come up with some type of interesting theme for my notebooks, but it usually ends up as a journal/diary, a collection of scribbles, or random notes I take concerning my ideas. That’s about it. I could make a book based on random writing prompts but it doesn’t feel “organic”. Looking back, I’ll read it and realize that I was just following random orders to pass the time. Well, at least I came to a decision with my hardcover dragon notebook. That is definitely going to be an enchiridion of Mythos. I can’t write a story that massive and rely on my memory alone, you know? Blah blah blah blah blah. You get the point.

☆彡 I spent most of my weekend watching unsettling documentaries. It’s really disheartening to watch people suffer needlessly for someone or something they adore. The worst one was “Talhotblond” where this mom used her teenaged daughter’s pictures (Most of them she took without her permission and were exploitive.) to mess around with guys on the internet. She ended up stirring up shit to make these two guys fight over her, and one teenaged boy ended up getting killed because of it. It was beyond fucked up. The other ones were pretty fucked up too. I sometimes forget that these are real people and I’m not watching a movie. It can get that unbelieveable sometimes. Well, one thing that is definite about the human race is that we never cease to amaze…sometimes not in a good way.

Wow, I have a lot of things to catch up on before I get tired.

Later~
