Entries, I Make That.

I’m back~

And, no, your eyes aren’t foolin’ you. It is still May. I told you I’m a failure. *flips hair sassily*

I have (semi) good reasons though. One, we switched IPs and the internet is 100 times faster. So…I had to try it out. HOW COULD I NOT. Before this challenge, it took me a good 10 minutes to download one song. Yes, it was that terrible. But now it takes less than a minute. That’s just…crazy awesome. Two, I just found out like…yesterday…that we were going to have a three-day weekend. So, it’s better to tackle this TL;DR entry now while I have plenty of time than to wait until the first of the month when I’ve have at least one million errands to run. At least. Also, I have a strong feeling they’re going to make me work that Saturday.

Okay, excuses aside, I’ll provide some quick updates on what I’ve been doing for the last…er, 25 days…I think. Prepare for a fuckload of pictures. If your internet is as sad as mine was…I’m sorry, son.

Iron Man 3 was great! Outside of my butthurting about the route they took with The Mandarin and lack of Fin Fang Foom, I enjoyed it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Robert Downey Jr. was born to play Tony Stark. Like…if anyone played him I’d probably lose interest in the movies. I can’t wait to see him in the second Avengers movie (He is coming back, right?). I especially loved the end of the credits with Tony and Bruce. Gotta love the science bros!

It’s always a pleasure to see my bb Benedict Cumberbatch (or Benadryl Cabbagepatch as Mark called him). I still think choosing him as Khan was a poor casting choice, but that is not a comment on his acting skills or general magnificence at all. And that voice. *melts* I’m probably a Cumberbitch as this point but only because he really is a great actor who should definitely consider voice acting too. I’m still thinking about that voice right now. Wow. Back to the movie. I enjoyed it. It was fun…which I guess was the point of it.

Ignore the obnoxious time stamps for now. I don’t really know how to remove them from Mark’s digital camera and I’m too lazy to research it or crop it out.  Back on point~ made my first Gundam model. I tried some before but Mark helped me with it. So, it didn’t really “count” to me. This model, on the other hand, I did entirely on my own. It. Is. The. Greatest. Shit. Ever. I want to move on to the super huge ones that can actually fit a pilot figure inside AND requires painting. *rolls up sleeve* Aw yes~

Save for the plushie (I got that for Christmas from my big sis) and the cross-leg posing Sailor Moon (got that like…yeesh…3-4 years ago?), I went a little Sailor Moon crazy when I got my model kit. It was RIGHT there in the same store. I couldn’t say no. I was so close to buying the Sailor Moon tote…but I behaved myself. The first two pictures belongs to the same folder–the first is the front, the second the back. When I’m going to someone’s house or work, I like to slide a few blank papers in there so I have something to draw/write on when I’m bored. As for the keychain, it came with the lanyard, circular keychain thing (what is that shit called?), and an ID badge. I praise that ID badge everyday because I always leave my work badge behind or I rummage through my wallet and purse constantly to find it. Massive pain in the ass, but not anymore of course.

Speaking of work, I managed to get my hours changed. So, no more 9-5 for me. I now work 11-8…which is awesome because I get an extra hour of work a week that I didn’t get before. Now I can stay up all night and even shop late at Wal-Mart without 90% of Atlanta in my way. Yay!

Nail polish has always been one of those “pretty to look at but I’ll never wear that shit” type of things until recently when I found some galaxy nail polish. It looks very familiar to the type in this picture. It’s not bad at all. I might actually stop trimming my nails now and let them grow so I can put more starry polish on it. >_>

I ran across Kelly Osborne’s issue of Self, and she looks amazing! Look at her rocking that purple hair. GURL. Okay, I’m sorry. LOL. Anyway, I’m not writing to state the obvious to anyone. I’m writing because she talked about Hoopnotica in her magazine, I decided to try it out, and I’m hooked. I can’t put into words how much I hate exercising, but any exercise that is fun and takes my mind off of counting time is considered a plus in my book. Try it out if you haven’t already. It’s more fun than running on a trendmill for 45 minutes. I promise! Speaking of exercise:

I dance to this song at least three times a day. It is FUN. I am not kidding when I say I have this entire routine memorized from dancing to it so often. Just Dance, in general, is extremely enjoyable and I can’t wait to get the kinect version. For now, I’m using the Wii version. It is no joke. Wii Mote or Kinect, you can work up a sweat with this game. No complaint there. I got some work to do. *pats gut*

And since I’m on the topic of weight loss, I discovered A Black Girl’s Guide To Weight Loss and I’ve been going there religiously. She is amazing! More than amazing, she is sensible, intelligent, and brilliant. The best thing about her site, aside from her insightful view on black culture–something most WL sites never discuss–is the fact that she is completely against fat shaming. While I’m all for a good get-your-shit-together pep talk every now and then, it’s annoying having to hear constantly that I’m supposed to hate myself because I’m fat. How about no. My belief on fitness coordinates with Erika’s: it should be about rewarding yourself with a body that runs efficiently and keeps you strong, not punishing or shaming yourself. I am glad to find someone who motivates everyone to find their own positive motivation rather than excuse the prejudiced actions and words of fat-phobic individuals. It’s rare, unfortunately, but to find such a rare source of assistance is fantastic. So, gotta share that! 😀

I took up a short assignment with Millstone Coffee to make some extra cash (GETTIN DAT CHEEDUH) and they gave me unlimited coffee to drink while I was helping them and, wow, that shit is amazing. I am hooked on their coffee now. I am never going back to any other brand again…except for those 3-in-1 Vietnamese coffees at H-Mart and Assi. I live for those, son.

I tried agave nectar once and…yeah…my bag of sugar went in the trash after that. LOL. The next thing for me to try is Stevia. I hear amazing things about it but I haven’t tried it yet. Still killin’ that agave nectar.

The in-laws gave Mark and me a Ninja blender a while ago, and it’s been in storage the entire time…until this month. I decided to put it together a few weeks ago. Boy, am I putting it to work! I love making smoothies. In the mornings, especially, I am hungry, in the mood for something sweet, and not in the mood for anything hot thanks to this weather. So, I just toss some spinach, apples, strawberries, banana, and whatnot in the Ninja. It keeps me full and energetic until lunch. Speaking of lunch…I have a problem.

FUCKING FETA CHEESE. I’ll probably eat dirt if you sprinkle some feta cheese with it at this point. LOL. This addiction has actually worked to my advantage. I am more motivated to eat things like spinach and salads with a little bit of feta sprinkled into it. I’ve yet to make sandwiches out of it (I hear it’s amazing), but I’m planning to this weekend. I got my boneless chicken, my wheat bread, my spinach…gonna make me a ghetto panini. Just gonna grill that shit on a frying pan. XD

I’ve been drawing a lot. Some I scanned, but most are still in my sketchbook. Whatever I scanned is on my deviant art right now…and I’m too lazy to upload them all here. Sorry. I am really getting back into the swing of drawing. It feels natural again. That’s the only way that I can put it. I’ve been putting more emphasis on noses and lips when it comes to my drawings, and I don’t mind that at all. I love anime eyes so I really have no intention of changing that. Nose and mouth, on the other hand, I’d like to be more detailed. I’ll probably upload some drawings over the weekend. I’ll probably also start on an art-only blog at some point too.

I am so obsessed with my color pens. My goodness.  You can probably see some of that in the above artwork. Luckily, you can’t see it in my diary and doodles. It’s pretty bad. I’ll probably wear them out before long. I should probably stock up on them in bundles!

My beautiful picture

I weep for my drawing tablet. Look it. It was broken for so long that we started using it as a coaster. Now it’s working again post-duct taping and the cup stain won’t come off. LMAO. Mark is right. I really need to invest in a new drawing tablet at this point. So, that Note fund has turned into a Wacom fund now. It makes sense. I am an artist before I am a techie, and an artist without decent tools is like a mechanic without decent tools — still skillful but frustrated as hell from doing everything the hard way. Anyway, I’m saving up for that and Paint Tool Sai. My trial ran out so it’s time for the real thing. I don’t mind GIMP but it isn’t PTS. D:

…Do I really need to say anything? I mean:

He’s also shy IRL. And he also plays World of Warcraft. *melts* I feel like Mako-chan at this point because every other second I’m ogling at some random celebrity or fictional character and going: “He’s so dreamy~”. Sometimes, I’ll even say: “He kind of looks like Mark~” the way she thinks everyone looks like her ex-boyfriend. LMAO. Yeah…that’s gold.

tumblr_mmhcwsEKXi1qb5x7vo4_250

I can’t finish DX:HR because I don’t want to hurt Yelena. My mute goddess. *embraces creepily* Also, I’m pathetic when it comes to espionage games so…yeah. My tactic to sneaking in is to go wherever the fuck I have to go and shoot anyone who sees me…which is pretty much Yelena’s tactic too. HIGH FIVE.

My phone situation was very Cloud Strife before (rarely answer calls or texts, just listen to voicemails/read messages) but now it’s very Vincent Valentine (phone is always missing or broken). So, I’m pretty much done with the phone situation. I gave my phone to Mark to use as mini-tablet thing and my number is gone. So, it’s not even Vincent anymore. It’s very Red XIII, I guess. Or possibly Sephiroth because you have to do some odd summoning ritual to get in contact with me at this point.

WHO MADE UPDATES WHILE I WAS GONE.

That was my exact reaction to finding updates on this game a few days ago. It’s going to be amazing. Also, yes, I have heard about the whole XBox One fiasco and I’m not amused. I don’t know what the hell Microsoft is thinking but, then again, Windows 8 should be a fine indicator that someone isn’t thinking at all. If you’re in a business and you don’t listen to your consumers then you might as well kiss them goodbye…which seems to be happening. I can’t say anything much about the PS4 or even the Wii U because I have very little hands-on experience with either. The PS4 for obvious reasons, the Wii U because I just haven’t gotten around to it. If I do buy another console within the next year it will more than likely be a PS4 tbh. One, Drakengard 3. Two, The Witcher 3. Three, Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Four, download PSX games. We’ll just have to see how things play out in terms of gaming news but, once more, not amused with the XBox One. Sorry.

 Finally sat down and watched every single NGE episode and movie in existence. Yeah, it’s awesome. Of all the disturbing scenes, though, I am still creeped out by Shinji masturbating to Asuka while she was in the hospital. Seriously, Shinji, what the fuck?

PARTYHARD

After doing some serious cleaning, I found PS1 and PS2 memory cards that are completely empty. So, I’m replaying the fuck out of everything! The gif of Nikki rocking the fuck out is completely relevant because Chrono Cross is on that list of replays. I abandoned a replay I made maybe a year ago, so I’m working on that again. I’m also working on some Gamecube games. I lost the memory card for the GC, but I found that too while doing some said serious cleaning. METROID PRIME ALL FUCKING DAY.

Literally me (LOL), but buying Wii Fit Plus was a great choice. Of course, it made my original copy of Wii Fit obsolete but no matter. I really enjoy the new activities. Yoga, as always, is super helpful and the strength training routines do exactly what they’re supposed to do. I can feel dem abs beneath my gut. I’m probably going to lose weight and looked ripped as fucked. Wow, that will be awesome. Sorry. Off topic. I love this game. The one feature I’m thankful for is the comparing food to calories burned feature. It’s both sucky and eye-opening to learn that almost 30 minutes of slaving through an obstacle course burned one chocolate bar. ONE. That alone made me toss out like half the shit in my cabinet, so Wii Fit Plus is doing its job. XD

tumblr_mk8j8vxqRM1qzkg8ro1_500

This movie…wow. That’s a good wow, but also a that’s-pretty-fucked-up wow. The lesson I took from this movie is that you should always be yourself, regardless of the characters who will attack you and everyone around you for your decisions. Some might argue that Mima’s “real self” is who she was during her pop idol days, but I have to disagree there. Our society tends to exalt the “pure” aspects of individuals while simultaneously punishing them for their “dirty” aspects. But humans are both perfect and imperfect in many ways. Mima can play an innocent pop idol, but she can also play sexually-charged roles as an actress. The immoral individuals in this movie, as far as I am concerned, were the ones who focused too much on keeping her “pure” (Rumi, Uchida/Me-Mania) or making her “dirty” (Murano). It’s always empowering to see a character go through half a movie screaming and crying, and then make a complete 180 to become confident in the end. Overall, Satoshi Kon’s genius showed itself in this movie, as it does all of his works. He is still missed immensely.

Man…I don’t know what else. Lately, it’s just been a lot of IRL responsibilities, Gaki no Tsukai marathons, replays, drawing, working on stories, a bunch of health-related progress, movie and dinner nights, anime and dinner nights, book collecting, wishlist making, and stuff. That’s about it. I’ll probably touch on those and whatever else I forgot in my typical shooting star entries.

That’s about it! Now to get back in the swing of things…

‘Til next time.

060: Mice on Venus

☆彡 Wait… Geralt is on the cover of Game Informer? And he has a beard?

2mhvqlu.jpg

Geralt, you’re ruining my life. Stahp.

★彡 Speaking of The Witcher, I am slowly but surely sucking less in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings. My problem is that I have fallen in that trap of constantly rushing through things out of some false notion that I am busy. I am not busy. Constantly occupied, maybe, but not busy. There is no reason why I can’t sit through a game like The Witcher 2, and thoroughly enjoy it. I just started to take advantage of alchemy and traps after all this time that I’ve been playing. I really need to chill when it comes to this game. You know, take my time and not try to rush through it. The approach I take in other RPGs will not fly in this game. That’s for sure. I’ve had my ass handed to me so many times, I can’t even bother to count.

☆彡 I haven’t played Final Fantasy XIII-2 lately. I want to, but…those damn gravitons cores. I hate searching missions. It feels like busy work.

★彡 I did finally manage to get Javik to join my party in Mass Effect 3. He’s…interesting. By the way, he doesn’t sound Jamaican to me. His accent actually sounds very similar to Nigerians that I have spoken to. Either way, it’s cool. He made me laugh really hard when Liara said that she wrote about Protheans in several journals and he responded with something along the lines of, “Asaris can write now?”. Then there is the scene when he called Salerians lizards and she corrected him with the term ‘amphibians’ before he told her in the calmest tone, “They used to eat flies”. Then she just stares at him for a long time and exits the rooms. LOL. Poor bb. I know she was so excited to meet him, but Javik is having exactly none of anyone’s shit today. Not even mine. We’ll just have to see how he settles in as the game progresses.

☆彡 Please don’t look at or poke or mention my cheekbones.

★彡 I can’t watch The Jerk just once. As soon as the movie is over, I have to play it again. My record is four times. Yes, I watched this movie for almost eight hours. Think about that, and think about how great it is to not live with me. Also, I do the same thing with Garden State…and Amadeus…and Donnie Darko.

☆彡 Speaking of Amadeus, Mozart wrote his first opera when he was twelve–TWELVE. I am 25, and I can’t even finish one comic book. Like…how do I even? I don’t know anymore. *evaporates* I guess it is just like a quote I saw: perfectionist = procrastinator. What is the point in making an effort with anything if I can’t do it perfectly or even almost perfectly? That is my mentality sometimes…too many times.

★彡 Link does not get along with his tail. It’s both strange and funny. The thing that usually causes a fight to break out is his tail slapping him in the face while he’s sleeping. He likes to sleep in a ‘C’ shape sometimes, and that is when the tail-slapping session almost always starts. Then he bites his tail. Then he chases it. Then he falls off the bed while chasing it–which pisses him off. Then he jumps around in this sideways motion trying to grab it. Once more, strange and funny. Definitely amusing.

☆彡 I only want three things this month: Hyrule Historia, the complete box set of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, and strawberry cheesecake. Please.

★彡 The main character of a story I am writing is basically a serial killer. Well…not basically. He is a serial killer by definition, yet he is not the villain in the story. Therefore, I have to do a lot to make him likable and even relatable. It’s not easy. Of course, Dexter is pretty likable and relatable, but that’s Dexter. He’s not so much an assassin, but a vigilante gone wrong. *sigh* Definitely tough…

☆彡 I hate break-ups. I think one of the worst moments I’ve had in the past few months was when I found out Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman broke up. It just left a bad feeling at the pit of my stomach. All break-ups do that.

★彡 I wonder if character developers ever think about how crazy it is to create a person. It’s a person! No, (s)he may not be there right in front of you, but you gave someone a name, a purpose, friends, family, enemies, and even a collection of personal issues to solve. It’s amazing! Someone once said to me: “I don’t get how authors like J.K. Rowling get emotional over characters she created and decided to kill,” and my first response was:

stahp

Is this a serious question or…? Really, if you kill a character of yours and you don’t feel anything at all, even some type of sadistic satisfaction, then you are doing it wrong.

☆彡 I don’t get people who call me and ask: “Who is this?” Shouldn’t I be asking you that? LOL

★彡 Pet Peeve #22:  “Can I sit with you?” …Why? There’s like 100 other seats. I’d understand if the seat next to me was one of the last seats left, but I don’t understand wanting to sit next to a complete stranger when you have countless other places to sit.

☆彡 I still haven’t seen Go-Busters yet. It’s not some anti-Go-Busters thing…which seems to be happening a lot…I just never never really got around to it.

★彡 I’m dreading that last Berserk movie because most of the reviews I’ve read said that it was great but extremely brutal and disturbing. I believe it. The movies compared to the anime are…wow. If a child ever walked in during one of those movies, I would freak the hell out and ban them from whatever room the movie is playing it. It can get that bad at times. The scene with Griffith and Charlotte alone was more like a porn than an actual “love scene” in a movie. It was pretty graphic. I can’t imagine watching the Eclipse knowing just how far this movie can go in terms of details and content. It even received the Japanese equivalent of the NC-17 rating. I…just wow. I definitely can’t watch this movie with Mark now. I know for a fact I will cry, and he makes a big deal every time I do. So, I’d rather not. I will be watching that shit alone…then handling the definite depression that will follow alone. The things I do for my fandoms. *sigh*

I have nothing witty to add, so I’m just going to fly away. *flys away*
