097: Stand By Me

Just Frank Castle things.

✪ Personal Life ✪

  • Geez… Where the fuck do I begin?
  • Everything is Lunafreya right now and you’re damn right I’m going to fangirl about FFXV in a minute.
  • February was definitely a great month. I got to meet my new nephew Jaden, hang out with Ash, Tiffa, and Mark, and finally get my hands on a Wii U!
    • Jaden – He’s such a cutie pie ♥♥♥! Why are my nephews and niece so precious? I don’t deserve them. 😥
    • Hangout – So, Ash came down from NC to visit a bunch of her ATL friends, including me, Tiffa, and Mark, and we had a blast with her. I can’t remember the last time I laughed as much as I did that day. We were just being a bunch of goofs together. LOL. All in all, it was great–great friends, great conversations, great places, great food. I can’t wait to do it again. This time we will actually put some effort into planning because Mark almost led us to our deaths. Bad Mark.
    • Wii U – This belongs in the gaming section. Still, it is probably the best Valentine’s Day gifts I ever received.
  • Mark and I found a new hobby that is guaranteed to concern the people we know. There is a shooting range right down the street from our place, and we’ve become obsessed with… well… shooting shit. My only complaint is that it’s loud as hell. And the kickback will knock your fucking teeth out if you don’t keep control. Otherwise, it’s a blast (no pun intended). The great thing is that I’m surprisingly decent at it. I mean, my eyesight is garbage so I was sure I would miss my target, but I ended up getting mostly headshots at 50 feet distance. According to Mark that is good. At least I know I’ll survive somewhat in the zombie apocalypse, right? LOL. I don’t know. He’s the military kid, so he’s been my mentor on all things gun related. Anyway, it’s fun. GREAT stress relief. That is a definite!
  • I got a chance to work remote and it was like winning the lottery for a day. LOL. I don’t even care about raises or promotions anymore. I just want to eventually get permission to work from home everyday. That is my dream job right there. And since I love the work I do my career will be 100% enjoyable for me. No more waking up at 3am, no more driving in traffic, no more spending my lunch playing taxi–none of that shit there. Just me, my music, my laptop, and my pajamas. Fuck. Yes. I want it now. ლ(╹◡╹ლ)
  • I’m ashamed of some of the things I find hysterical. For example, every time I hear/read, “Swiggity swooty, I’m coming for that booty,” I giggle like an idiot. Then the other day Mark and I were trying to decide on dinner and he googled “good food”. Dude, I was crying. Like… what was he hoping to accomplish with that vague-ass search? I’m done (╥ □ ╥)! Now I’m giggling because while watching Daredevil Mark said that since Matt is blind he probably hits on girls by saying, “Hey, girl, let me hear them titties,” and… *siiiigh* My sense of humor is in ruins. Don’t look at me.
  • I got new glasses after seven years or so, and it is so fucking weird. I didn’t know real life was this crisp.
  • Link is temporarily annoyed with me because a cat outside was following Mark and me and climbing our shoulders, and he watched all of this from the window with a pissed expression. So… Yeah… We feel like two-timing whores now. Sorry, Link. 😦
  • I don’t know what else to add in this section. I’m feeling OK. I’m working on improving certain areas of my life. I guess that is it then. Moving onwards~

 

✪ Art & Writing ✪

  • I can always tell when I’m in a good place art-wise because my art supplies will move from my desk to everywhere else. It also doesn’t help at all that every time I get a little extra cash I just add to that shit like I have all the space in the world. In my defense, I always said as a child that when I become an adult and have money I would buy all the art supplies I want. So, I’m sure the young Kerri in me is cartwheeling around in excitement. Anyway, I’m not complaining. I do need to be more organized, yes, but I’m as happy as pig in shit over here. I want to draw forever. ♥
  • Writing is now working out smoothly because I decided to put all my writing-related things in one book. Brainstorm? One book. Drabbles? One book. Charts? One book. At times I’ll think, “Yadda-yadda would be a good idea”, and then I’ll just write in my book “Yadda-yadda is a good idea”. Often times right in the middle of doing something else, like shopping. LOL. I’m pretty much inseparable from that book. It’s like my brainstorm encyclopedia, and it makes things infinitely better. If you’re a writer you have to get a brainstorm book. It’s extremely awesome. Stick it in your purse with some pen(cil)s and never worry about forgetting a good idea again. 😀
  • By the way, if you order a sketchbook online and it says “MASSIVE, HUGE” then believe it… because I ordered one thinking, “please no sketchbook is too big for me” and this one is ridiculous. In terms of length  and width it’s not bad. Maybe 11 x 12-ish. But it has like 600 pages, its the size of an encyclopedia, and there is no way I’m carrying that almost 20 lb. tome of a sketchbook outside of this place. So. Yeah. I have so many pages that at this point I’m just sketching any random shit that comes to mind. LOL

✪ Anime & Manga ✪

  • It only took me an eternity, but I finally managed to watch all of Fushigi Yuugi including that horrible sequel. Yay! At first I was disappointed that Miaka was gravitating towards Tamahome instead of Hotohori, but eventually I stopped fighting it and accepted the obvious reality that they are one of the most adorable couples ever created. I also wanted nothing but the best for Yui too because even though she was so pigheaded at times she was never a bad person. Ah… I love it. I’ll always have a soft spot for shoujo anything. They make me feel so warm and fluffy inside. (。´ ‿`♡)
  • Completely in love with Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.
  • Of course I caught the FFXV: Brotherhood anime. It’s decent so far. I just wonder how long it’s going to take to release all of the episodes. ARGH IMPATIENCE.
  • I am completely in love with Hunter x Hunter. I’m so glad that I finally finished it. Now I feel kinda hollow because I was immersed in this world for weeks and now it’s just… done. I hate when that happens. LOL. I’m already looking into collecting the mangas so maybe that will help.
  • New Berserk anime! *backflips through a wall* Yaaas, I need more! I’m already hyped as shit because they finally made it to Elfheim, so… yeah. Let’s get this series done in my lifetime please. >_<
  • The new Sailor Moon Crystal looks so much better. Also, Michiru! My queen!
  • Broke down and purchased the Oyasumi Punpun and Gunslinger Girl omnibuses. Totally worth it. Now my heart can break all over again. Yay!
  • What the hell is even Sekkou Boys? (╥ □ ╥)
  • I guess Turn-A-Gundam is no longer in copyright jail because they’re actually selling the DVDs in stores now. I damn near screamed when I saw the first part of the set at MovieStop. Silly gundam moustache and all, I absolutely love this series. Loran is definitely my favorite Gundam pilot of all times. He is so adorable. I can’t stand it. Also, Yoko Kanno doing the music is just… *deep breath*… Get away from me if you hate this series. I don’t need that negativity in my life.
  • Geez, what else? The Lost Village is creepy as fuck and I have no idea what is going on. Finished Ace of Diamond and I really want Chris Yuu’s eyebrows. Slam Dunk is my shit now. Sakamoto is funny as hell. My Hero Academia is so nice! Ah, so much anime to talk about. Maybe another time.

I know I’m forgetting something but it’s been a few months. I’m trying. -_-

✪ Video Games ✪

  • Ah, yes. The Wii U. It kind of came to me unexpectedly. Sure, I was planning to get it eventually, but one day Mark was just like “surprise,” and then I had a Wii U. He already got me Hyrule Warriors before I got it, so I had that to play (ADDICTIVE). It came with Mario Kart 8 (FUN). The moment Twilight Princess came out I got that (GLORIOUS). Eventually, I did get Xenoblade Chronicles, even after the whole Amazon crap I had to deal with to get it (LONG STORY BUT WHATEVER THIS GAME IS RPG ROYALTY), and that was well worth all the headache. I have zero complaints. I love it. The gamepad is ridiculously nifty and feels more like another handheld console at times. I don’t know what else to say. I’m completely in love with it. I am beyond fortunate. Thank you, life, for not always shitting on me! \(^O^)/
  • GET READY FOR SOME FFXV FANGIRLING.
  • First of all, I watched that FFXV Uncovered video from start to finish, and even though it was cheesy at times I was hyped as fuck. I’ve accepted my badge as a Square-Enix bitch ages ago. I can’t help it anymore. Needless to say, they are going above and beyond with this one. And they better. They’ve been working on this game for over a decade now. I was still in high school when they announced it, and back then it was FF Versus XIII or whatever. The wait is finally over, guys. I can’t believe it. Come September 30th FFXV will actually be here! Well… it might come a little later for me. I preordered the deluxe edition (the ultimate edition practically vanished) with overnight shipping, so if I’m lucky I’ll get on the first of October. If not, then it will probably show up the following Monday. Tuesday the absolute latest before I lose my shit. LOL. Either way, I’m ecstatic. I love the idea of an anime, a movie, another demo, and even all the other ridiculous things like an actual car that no one can buy. I’m indifferent to the mobile game, but I’ll try it out once I get a phone that doesn’t give me an insufficient storage warning every time I try to download something. I mean… Fuck. I don’t know what else to say. The moment I heard Florence and the Machine singing her version of “Stand By Me” (Yes!) FOR this game my eyes started to water. I couldn’t help it. It’s like someone just took all of my favorite things, put them in a box, dumped it in front of me, and said, “Enjoy it in six months, bitch”. It’s like… that feeling you get as a kid when someone told you that you were going to Disneyworld. When I realize this thing I’ve been waiting over ten years to experience is only months away I just want to celebrate, regardless of the possibility that it might be straight up dick. I don’t even know what I’m saying. I’m just excited and sappy and relieved and hopeful. That’s about it. I can’t wait!!!  ʘ‿ʘ
  • Oh, and you can bet your ass that I played that demo. The gameplay felt a lot like Kingdom Hearts tbh. Which is not a complaint at all. It’s so enjoyable that I’m already thinking of playing it again. Plus Carbuncle and bb Noctis are so adorable! I want an esper/eidolon/GF/summon/etc. to talk to me via text messages. 😮 And of course I’m so uncreative that when I was asked to name Carbuncle I just named him Carbuncle. LOL. I don’t start giving people and things dumb names until the second playthrough at least. Dems the rules.
  • Can I talk about Sakaguchi showing up to the conference? I miss him. ;_;
  • New updates for Nier Automata too! Yes, I need moar!
  • Finally tackling that Hearts of Stone DLC for The Witcher 3. I’m loving it. I never get tired of Geralt. There could be an entire DLC with him watching paint dry and I’ll probably write a review saying, “A work of art. Fantastic gameplay. 10/10.”
  • I can’t sign on Steam anymore because the instant I login this person keeps IMing me to talk about Sailor Moon and its connection to the occult and I don’t know how to say “go away” without hurting his/her feelings. Why did I end up in this situation? Why is it the more antisocial I become, the more people keep talking me? Why? Why?

✪ Books ✪

  • Do comic books count? Because I’ve been reading through a lot of omnibuses lately, mostly Daredevil.
  • I did get the first eight books of The Wheel of Time series for like $10 and was set on reading it… but then I got distracted… and then Mark took that honor for me. LOL. He got through three books in like a week, so I have to hear nonstop about how awesome it is while simultaneously loathing myself for not getting past the second chapter of the first book. I just need one good week to focus 100% on my hobbies. (◞‸◟;)

✪ Music ✪

  • The Legend of Legacy OST is everything. Pianoschlacht Live is also pretty important to me. Bless Masashi Hamauzu. Kinda OT, but I found out recently that Masashi Hamauzu got his daughter to sing the vocals in “The Vestige” from the FFXIII OST. I just had to mention that because it is really neat and adorable at the same time.
  • BEYONCE DID IT AGAIN! >:U
  • My music life has been mostly Pandora. I really need to do something about my stations because I swear I have like twenty of them. It’s not really my fault though. How do you put instrumentals, trip hop, classic rock, alternative rock, hip hop, r&b, and several other genres in one station? Then there are some artists/bands that need their own station because I have a lot of moments where I only want to hear their music or music that sounds similar to theirs. I did put my movie, game, and anime soundtrack stations into one station called “writing & drawing*, but even now I’m thinking of breaking them into separate stations again because video game music is not like movie music, you know? *sigh* I’m hopeless.

✪ TV & Movies ✪

  • THIS NEW SEASON OF GAME OF THRONES IS REALLY GOOD SO FAR. WOW.
  • I don’t think I discussed The Force Awakens yet. I loved it! My biggest complaint is that there was not enough Captain Phasma, but I heard she was supposed to get more screen time in later episodes. GOOD. You can’t hire fierce queen Gwendoline Christie aka Brienne of Tarth to play a stormtrooper and not make her kick ass. Not allowed, JJ Abrams. e_e
  • Season two of Daredevil… Wow. Just wow. I loved every second of it. Sure, it has its flaws, but none were so troubling that I couldn’t enjoy it. Frank/The Punisher is amazing. Elektra is amazing. I still love Matt/Daredevil, Karen, and Foggy. I love that some of the characters from season one came back. It’s just so good. I can’t wait for Luke Cage and Iron First and The Defenders!
  • I think I mentioned watching The Sopranos before. That is all done, so now I just have to start The Wire. I know it is considered quite possibly the best show ever made, but every time I get the chance to watch it I end up falling asleep. Not because it’s boring but because I’m almost always tired. Then I spend my weekends playing games or watching weeb shit, so… yeah. It’s at the top of my watchlist. Finish The Wire before 2017 or kick myself in the chest. >_<
  • Spotlight is such a good movie, but it is so fucked up. So, so, so, so fucked up. It is disgusting how many suspected pedophiles are amongst priests alone. When you think about the population as a whole… It’s like this whole shit with Jared. It makes me legit irate. I’m just going to stop because this is going to turn into a long rant. I already feel it. Anyway, Spotlight it is wonderfully done in terms of acting and production, but the subject matter is definitely unsettling. There is my review.
  • The same kind of goes for Room. It is such a good movie, but the subject matter is saddening. I really love characters like Brie Larson’s “Ma” because she is the epitome of what a hero(ine) is. I cannot imagine the amount of courage and strength it takes to endure a situation like that, and still keep your child completely oblivious to how screwed up things actually are. It is definitely a tearjerker. I highly recommend it.
  • Saw Deadpool. Funny as hell, as expected. Not a perfect movie, but it is the perfect Deadpool movie. That is all that matters, right?
  • Saw Batman v Superman… and I don’t even know what to say. Outside of Ben Affleck playing a good Batman and Gal Gadot slaying as Wonder Woman the movie was balls. It was just plot holes galore, Jesse Eisenberg doing who knows what drug to play Lex Luthor (or supposedly Lex Luthor Jr. which is even dumber), disappointing character development, flop villains all around… I don’t even know. And they didn’t even have the decency to reward the audience for sitting through that with some after credits scenes. The disrespect. LOL. I mean, it wasn’t the worst movie ever made. It was just tolerable at best.

✪ Whatever Else/Closing ✪

I have so much to cover that I just kinda typed without worrying about typos or curbing my potty mouth… fingers. Anyway, sorry about all of that. I think it’s been like five months since my last entry. D:

Take care, ya’ll, especially with the ridiculous amount of pollen out there these days. If you’re going through the whole itchy eyes, stuffy nose, coughing mess I’m there with you. Be strong, sistrens and brethrens.

Sending everyone good vibrations. (っ- ‸ -)っ ~♥

 

093: The Beast Is Back

tumblr_mfemzelExK1qzfvtmo1_500

If we don’t greet each other like this then what’s the point.

I’m going to start using ‘Read More’ cuts on these entries because they can get pretty long at times. Like now.

(more…)

061: Dragon God

stein

☆彡 Damn, Stein.

★彡 I began playing Radical Dreamers yesterday. It is definitely an interesting game, and I was more than happy to run into some Chrono Cross characters. Everyone was pretty much the same except for Serge. Then again, Chrono Cross never really delved into what Serge’s personality and thoughts were like. For all I know he could be just like the Serge in Radical Dreamers. Probably not as clumsy though. Nonetheless, I am really liking this game. Thanks again, SNESbox.com!

☆彡 Pet Peeve #902: Sycophancy/brown-nosing/flattery.

★彡 I did some updates to both my domain and the Mythos website yesterday. Actually, I updated them a few days prior but freehostia was going through some technical issues and those updates I made just vanished. So, I had to do them all over again yesterday. LOL. Anyway, I’m kind of working on other website plans including a website for my anachronism story (now under the working title of “Temporal”) and then another website dedicated to time travelers. Right now, these are the time travelers that I want to include in the shrine: Link, The Doctor, Captain Kirk, Captain Picard, Captain Sisko, Captain Janeway, Spock, Chrono, Serge, Donnie Darko, Akemi Homura, Serah Farron, Mokoto Konno, Trunks, Bill & Ted (yes), Philip J. Fry, Dr. Emmett Brown, Ash (Army of Darkness not Pokemon…unless Pokemon!Ash time traveled then sure), the Mirai Sentai Timeranger team, Sailor Pluto, Dr. Sam Beckett,  and a few more.

☆彡 Yay, thunderstorm! (I’m not being sarcastic. I love thunderstorms. Even if it screws up my internet connection.)

★彡 I’ve been drawing with pens and markers a lot lately. I am getting tired of pencils, I guess. If my tablet worked, I definitely would work on some digital art right now. *sigh* So is the way of things. When I am interested, they are not there. When I am not interested, I can’t get them out of my sight.

☆彡 This is a week of meetings. I hate meetings, but if it leads to more income and an easier life for us then I can’t say no.  One major thing I am hoping to get out of this meeting is a chance to work second shift. It will be 3 p.m. to midnight. Do you know how awesome that is? I will only have to wake up early on Saturday to do a typical 9-5 shit, but I would get Sunday and Monday off. I don’t care too much for Sunday, but Monday off would be great. I always wanted a job that (a)didn’t involve waking up early, and (b)allowed me to have at least one weekday off so I can shop when everyone is at work or school. In short, if I say the right things to the right people then things will be much better for me.

★彡 In honor of this year being the year of snake, I am watching Conan the Barbarian. It’s the best I can do because I don’t fuck with snakes (the reptiles, not the people born under that year). Also, let’s not forget Thulsa Doom’s luxurious hair and “Gurl bye” look.

Ugh. Fierce as hale.

☆彡 Geralt going through a The Hangover type situation was hilarious. Spoiler: He got wasted, had a naked lady with a sword tattooed on the side of his neck (as a means of joining a guild he didn’t want to join when he was sober), hired some prostitutes with members of said guild, and tried to turn them into rafts so they could cross a river on them. It was hilarious. Especially when Triss couldn’t even make it through an explanation of the herbs needed to remove the tattoo because she was laughing so hard at him.

★彡 I don’t get the appeal of naked infants in costumes. Seriously, walking into a room and seeing a giant poster of a naked baby in a cowboy hat makes me uncomfortable.

☆彡 You dislike me. The sky splits open, and sucks up everything that is dear to me. “Why?” I weep as I fall to my knees. “Why must you take away my only purpose of living–being liked by you and others? Now I am nothing.” Slowly, I begin to evaporate. Once I disappear, millions of puppies and kittens rain from the sky. Everyone rejoices. A stranger pats you on the back and says, “Way to go. You saved the world because you disliked her. Good job.” You smile triumphantly. You are going places.

★彡 I found a way to work on a comic book without starting a new project or straying away from current projects. I am going to (1)write a side story about each character in Mythos–from the point of view of that character–before (2)turning those side stories into comic. I am teaching myself to stop jumping into comics without finishing the plot because I always end up working on a comic for days, running out of ideas, and then trashing all of that hard work. It sucks.

☆彡 I’d like to master at least one instrument in my lifetime…preferably the oboe, violin, piano, or ocarina.

★彡 Random Conversation:

Mark: “Oh, shit. Tomorrow’s Valentine’s Day.”
Me: “Yeah, you’re right. Oh, well. I didn’t get you shit.”
Mark: “I didn’t get you shit either.”
Me: “Awesome.”

If it isn’t obvious enough, Mark and I don’t care about Valentine’s Day. It’s not Halloween, so it’s not important.

☆彡 I am indifferent to the announcement of new XBox and PlayStation consoles. My sentiments may change when E3 rolls around, but all I’m hearing right now are rumors and seeing badly photoshopped pictures. I can’t do anything with that. Also, I don’t become interested in consoles for their features. Not too much anyway. I gravitate towards a console based on their game selection. What’s the point in paying almost $500 for a console that I can’t do anything with. Furthermore, consoles are always riddled with bugs when they come out. I’d rather wait until they fix them and start shipping them in neat bundles. Patience, patience, patience.

Kind of blah today. My stomach hurts. *sigh* I’ll get some tea and see how that goes.

047: Dawn Breaks Like A Bull Through The Hall

55fedb49ad2aa47df2945714b31b5894

★彡 I SAW AND HEARD DARK SOULS II THINGS AND WTF I AM SHAKING AND CRYING TEARS OF HAPPINESS AND MY BODY WASN’T READY FOR THIS YET FUUUUUUUCK.

☆彡 Tomorrow, I see Silent Hill: Revelations and The Man With The Iron Fists. Yet another thing to be excited about. 😀

★彡 Somehow, one sick day turned into a four-day weekend. I’m not happy about that at all. Thursday was understandable. I had a 100 degree fever, back-to-back migraines, and nausea so bad that I don’t know how in the world I didn’t throw up that day. Friday though…Okay, I’ll admit, I wasn’t 100%. I still had a fever, but it was only 99. I was fine enough to do work. I resent being sent home to just sit in bed, and wallow over the money I’m not making. I’m not angry at my boss at all. She was only looking out for me and everyone else (which is what I like about her) but I’m just…frustrated. Christmas is right around the corner. I can’t afford to have  two days off like that. I don’t know what I’m rambling about. I should be grateful. I did have a great day with Mark since he was off on Friday. Hell, he’s even going to be off on Sunday too. So, I can smile about that, right? 🙂

☆彡 Thanks to the two days off mentioned, I finally finished Deep Space Nine. The last moment of the show where Jake is watching the wormhole with Kira beside him–UGH RIGHT IN THE FEELS. I’ve already moved on to Voyager, and I must say that I really like Captain Kathryn Janeway. Actually, there isn’t a ST captain that I don’t adore. They’re all so wonderful. ❤

★彡 Getting this Dark Knight trilogy was a flawless choice. I’ve been watching the movies on loop since I got them. It’s so much better watching the entire thing from start to finish in one sitting. It leaves the details nice and crisp.

☆彡 I thought my obsession with Morning Glory stationery ended in my adolescence. It didn’t.

★彡 Netflix has all these Disney movies now thanks to a deal they made. I’m starting with The Fox and The Hound (which I’ve never seen) before I move on to The Aristocats (never finished it, but saw most of it), Alice in Wonderland, and then Pocahontas. The Nightmare Before Christmas is another possibility too. It’s all going to be very nostalgic indeed.

☆彡 If everyone has a purpose in life, I believe mine is storytelling. Whether it’s drawing or writing stories, I enjoy telling them. There is a feeling I can’t quite explain when I create a story, and someone tells me: “What happens next? Please work on it! I need to know the rest!” It’s not really pride. It’s…I don’t know. The closest feeling to it is when someone gives you an important task to complete, and you not only complete it, you go beyond their expectations. It’s that happiness with yourself and your abilities. There really is nothing like it.

★彡 I don’t have a New Year’s resolution list to share this year. Instead, I have a “Shit You Should Have Done Like Five Years Ago and It’s Really Pathetic That It’s Taking This Long” list. I don’t feel like posting it.

☆彡 Random Conversation:

Mark: “Doesn’t my character look like Geralt?”

Me: “Yes. Now I want to touch his butt.”

Mark: “What?”

Me: “What?”

(On a serious note, Geralt has a nice butt and everything else. Permission to post Geralt? For me? Why, you shouldn’t have! )

tumblr_m9bu0c5uaN1ryv2ylo1_250

★彡 Tina Turner singing “Goldeneye”. Perfection.

*sigh* Six hours away from Mark getting home, enjoying dinner, and watching Sword Art Online. I’m so impatient right now. -__-

0 4 5

 

☆彡 I’m not watching Deep Space Nine right now because the awesome TV is in the bedroom with the Wii, and I can’t hear shit thanks to my neighbors who are either a den of lions or human hurricanes. You pick. So, I’ve migrated to the living room, playlists a-playing, and generously offering anyone out there a hefty reward to handle my neighbors. Don’t hurt them. Just handle them…so I won’t violate my lease, or worse, end up in prison.

★彡 I’m beginning to realize that my job is an INTJ’s wet dream: very organized, very quiet, very systematic, and very logic-oriented. Though socialization is not frowned down upon there, putting socialization before work or stirring up drama is. In fact, a veteran employee was recently let go because, from what my boss told me, she did a lot of smile-to-your-face-gossip-behind-your-back type things. I don’t know what to contribute when it comes to that. I barely knew her, and I honestly thought she was a nice lady, but hew-mons in general are deceptive. Nonetheless, it is nice to work in a place where both introversion and studiousness is rewarded. It’s only been three weeks, and I am receiving so many pleasant reviews from my bosses. I could cry…but my feelings are off right now. *shrug* Next month, Mark and I are invited to an all-expense paid hibachi dinner along with my other co-workers (and their peoples). I’m pretty excited. So is Mark. He’s still baffled that my bosses are willing to pay ridiculous money to feed him, and they don’t even know him. I’m still baffled by some of the gifts, trips, and other things they gave to us. I was hesitant about that Las Vegas trip next year, but I was told that I would get taken to live shows, top notch restaurants, and even given allowance. I could only say “Whoa,” in a very Joey Lawrence fashion. It’s crazy. I don’t know what I did to deserve this position, but thanks.

☆彡 My new theme song is “Interval of Time and Space”. At last, I am an RPG character. *victory pose in slow motion*

★彡 Five words I hate to hear: “Teach me how to draw” (Close runner up: “Can you draw my (family member)?”). The answer is a very enthusiastic NO. It’s not that I dislike partaking knowledge (or drawing people). It’s just that 9 out of 10 people who ask me to teach them to draw have zero passion for it. They just want something to use as bait when they fish for compliments or attention. Besides, why ask me? I’m as mediocre as they come. Go ask someone else.

☆彡 I’m sometimes disappointed by the insults I get. It’s like no one even tries anymore. Don’t you think that I know my surface flaws? It’s only been 25 years. I only live with them everyday. Yes, I know what I did in the past, but since you obviously lived those experiences and I didn’t, please feel free to refresh my memory. As for my personality…it’s not as tangible as my body or my past. Your opinion of “good” or “bad” is entirely subjective, and moreover irrelevant to me. Don’t tell me what I think or don’t think of myself, anyone and anything. You’re not my brain. Why would your level of interest in building a relationship with me matter? I have never even attempted to build an acquaintanceship with you. Does that not show you the extent of your importance to me, or should I write it out for you in crayons?*sigh* I’m out of ‘You Tried’ stickers, so you’ll have to do with an imaginary pat on the back for now.

★彡 Why am I not a Bajoran? Where are my nose ridges and signature chained earring dangling from one ear? Why is no one calling me by my last name first, and first name last? Why do the prophets not speak to me? *blows away in the wind*

☆彡 Takeshi Kobayashi’s “Proton” is my programming theme. I’m making a lot of IRL OST updates today.

★彡 I think I’m being groomed by a creepy old guy. I mean, he’s old enough to be in the “maybe too friendly” category, yet young enough to be in the “yep definitely a pedophile or something” category, so I don’t know. It kind of miffs me because the one benefit in being overweight besides a nifty armrest on my gut is a sharp drop in the percentage of random men who come after me. I failed to remember that when it comes to creepy men or old men or men with fat fetishes, or that one guy who is all of the above, I am not safe. Going to bathe in scorching hot water in a few.

☆彡 My hair is growing again, as someone unfortunately pointed out to me today. I don’t feel like cutting it or even asking someone else to cut it. I’ll just let it do what it wants. I won’t lie though. Lately, I’ve been wishing I had hair like Mokuba Kaiba. I wouldn’t mind having a lion’s mane. Aww yiss. BTW, If you don’t think having a lion’s mane would be cool then you’re probably a peasant tbh, and you’re not welcomed in my jungle. You can go be basic with the gazelles and shit on the barren lands. Oh yeah. Here is Mokuba:

Don’t feel bad if you don’t know where he’s from. Yu-Gi-Oh was a train wreck.

★彡 It’s always funny when someone groans aloud: “Ugh, someone please kill me!”, and someone else with no sense of sarcasm or off-color humor thinks he’s legit suicidal.

☆彡 “I shoot him then I shoot all you motherfuckers and then we take it! Your choice, bitches!
— My favorite line in The Hangover hands down. The way he said it and what he did while he said it oh my goodness I died.

★彡 Whenever someone acts dramatic or makes a big deal about something stupid, Mark and I have a habit of making the wanking motion–very similar to our playing the miniture violin. But we sometimes forget that it probably shouldn’t be done in certain places. Actually, outside of our apartment and our car, it ‘s probably a bad idea to make wanking motions. LOL

☆彡 If you hate Pogo’s remixes, don’t talk to me.

★彡 Randomly muttering “Don’t touch me, I’m famous,” when someone brushes against you.

☆彡 Randomly muttering “For party rocking'” after saying “Sorry” to someone”.

★彡 Am I the only one who refuses to watch “A.I.” again because it’s too depressing? Never again. Fuck that.

Suddenly, I feel less crabby. Thanks again, WP.

I’m going to go eat my breaded fish and enjoy my Netflix, even if I have to turn it up so loud that it blows the roof off my room.

YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTHS WHEN BASHIR IS TALKING ABOUT STATISTICAL SHIT.

That’s all I have to contribute today.

*le vanishes*

☆彡 I say with a heavy heart that I am getting close to the end of Deep Space Nine; however, I still have that Voyager and Enterprise marathon waiting for me. After that, I have to begin again. I can’t just watch Enterprise and not continue on The Original Series. After Archer must come Kirk. After Kirk must come Picard. After Picard must come Sisko. After Sisko must come Janeway. Of course, I could just stop at Janeway…but Voyager is not the last series. Enterprise is. So, I have to continue on to Enterprise/Archer again. I didn’t make the rules. I just live them…and therefore must watch Star Trek in an infinite loop.

…I’m not complaining.

★彡 Something ghastly occurred recently that actually made me scream like a little bitch. As I’ve been nagging about incessantly, my XBox 360 is broken. So, one day I felt like watching Thunderball, and I decided to use my PS2 to watch it. No, I don’t have a DVD player…but after his incident I plan to get one immediately. I digress. In the PS2 was my Final Fantasy VI, and its case was packed up in a box, so I decide to put the game in the Thunderball case, and put Thunderball in the PS2. All seemed well until, as always, my PS2 decided to be an asshole and not play it. It likes to randomly select DVDs it feels like playing. For example, this week it feels like playing The Hangover, Inglorious Basterds, and Terminator: Salvation. Last week, it refused to play Terminatior: Salvation. Next week, it’ll probably refuse to play The Hangover or Inglorious Basterds. Fuckery like that. I digress again. After dealing with my PS2’s fuckery for a good ten minutes, I got annoyed and decide: “Fuck it. I’ll just play Final Fantasy VI.” Remove Thunderball from PS2. No problem. Remove Final Fantasy VI from Thunderball case…and it fucking cracks across the center. Out of fucking nowhere. Thus, the little bitch scream. Then again, it was more like a pterodactyl than a little bitch. Even Mark was both surprised and tickled by the nonhuman noise that came out of me. Naturally, I was not happy about it. I will have to order a new copy of the Final Fantasy Anthology just to replace it. *sigh* Oh well. I will just use this as an excuse to buy another copy of VIII, Chronicles, and Origins too…because I need to have like five copies of every damn Final Fantasy I have. It’s not for fangirl reasons. It’s because I am cursed when it comes to Final Fantasy. Each Final Fantasy game I bought has been replaced at least once…save for Final Fantasy X-2, Final Fantasy XII, and Final Fantasy XIII. Even Tactics needs to be replaced. Then again, I sold my first copy of Final Fantasy XII to a friend because he really wanted the special edition version…so, the copy I have now isn’t the original one I had. Yep…fucking cursed.

☆彡 I’ve been assigned with the task of writing our company’s newsletters. I’m nervous as hell, but I’ll do my best. After all, this is the first time I can recall standing at the helm of a company’s tasks. I should be honored instead of afraid, right? It’s the least I can do. They gave me ham as a Thanksgiving gift. No, not a couple slices. AN ENTIRE HAM. I don’t even want to know what  they’re going to give away for Christmas, but my guess is it’s going to be awesome.

★彡 Most animals are defensive eaters–meaning that they would eat food just to prevent another animal or person from eating it. So, if you have an animal who won’t eat, that is the first thing to try. If that doesn’t work and (s)he won’t eat for more than six hours, (s)he is probably sick. Luckily, Link is not sick. He just refuses to eat whenever he sees human food, and he will immediately change his mind when he thinks we’re trying to eat his food.

☆彡 Yoga is fucking awesome. My lower back has been tormenting me all week, but a couple minutes of the cobra and downward dog pose helped a lot. The rest will have to be slept off, but I’ll be good as new in no time!

★彡 Get this: I am working endlessly on this story I wrote for Nanowrimo, but I have zero intention of submitting it to Nanowrimo. It’s just not the type of story I feel like putting on display. What if, out of the fucking blue, I get recognition for it. Then I’ll have a bunch of people reading something that I’m not even close to being proud of. It’s not even worthy of being considered a rough draft. I…do want to continue it. Definitely. I’m having a blast with it to be honest. I just don’t want to share it. Why do I do this to myself?

☆彡  I’ve had “Blood” by In This Moment on loop for a long ass time. It’s not until recently that I realized this song reminds me so much of Jack from Mass Effect. Posting that shit.

★彡 What is this about Worf getting his own TV series? Holy. Shit. THIS CALLS FOR A WORF PARTY. Here is Worf feeling things. I’m going to start watching some of these movies I got from Redbox. One was free. One was 75 cents. Good deal.

Peace~

★彡 MY XBOX HAS FINALLY BEEN REPAAAAAAAIIIIIIRED!!!!!! 

Here is a picture of me being excited about this:

Yes, that is me. I’m camera shy because I’m really a bunny. Thanks for understanding, everyone.

Back on point. FUUUUUCCCCKKKK. It’s really fixed you guys. No towel or standing-on-the-console tricks that only work for one day until you’re just like: “Fuck it. I’m just going to put this shit in a box and curl into a ball to die.” It’s actually been repaired. The guy was even awesome enough to give a 90 day warranty on all of his repairs. So, if we run into the E74 error again before 11/17/12, we get our XBox repaired for free. Pretty nice, huh? If you live in Atlanta and you have a broken XBox 360, visit http://www.360unlimitedatlanta.com. The guy is legit! We only had to pay $40 for our repair, and he fixed it in about two hours. Mark and I had the chance to talk to him too. He’s really cool. We talked to him about Mass Effect, Dark Souls, Skyrim, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and other RPGs we were all obsessed with. It’s funny. When we told him that we didn’t have a working 360 for the past five months or so, his reply was: “WHAT?” LOL. Completely understandable. I don’t know how we went so long without one, but…never again. Especially knowing that such a skilled person with such great prices lives nearby. Overall, a very pleasant end to a very unpleasant five months. Now, if Mark and I can come to an agreement on how to divide 360 time…because the “whoever Link comes to first gets to play first” technique does not work….he just ignores us. -_-

★彡 We have a new employee at my job, and over the past week we’ve talked about Final Fantasy, drawing, writing stories, Gackt, The Lord of the Rings, and the relationship Tetsuya Nomura has with belts. I can’t even describe the feeling of relief I had when I was introduced to him by my manager, and he said: “Is that the Lionheart necklace?”. Guys. Guys. Listen. Guys. Listen. Guys. I finally work with someone who speaks my language. It’s been a good…five years since I worked with someone who even knew that there was such a thing as RPGs on this planet. Just think about that, and imagine all the feels.

★彡 My little sister officially owns a house. I’m so proud of her ;___;. I’m proud of all of my siblings to be honest. Despite where we started off, we all ended up becoming well-off adults. To rephrase my older sister, none of us are stuck in a “Wow, that’s fucked up” type of living situation. We come across misfortune, but we share that desire to overcome it no matter what. That is something we have in common despite our very different paths in life, and very different personalities. Back on point, congrats to my little sister! That’s an amazing accomplishment to have under your belt at 23! ^_^

★彡 If I could, I would subscribe to 20 magazines, and just revel in the excitement of constantly having something new to read in my mailbox. Then again, I heard of a website where you can have books mailed to you. Kind of like Netflix…except with books. I’d have to check it out later and see. It does sound like an awesome concept though.

★彡 You win, Nerd Fitness. I will give Paleo a try. First, I’ll have to find 35 Paleo recipes though: 10 for breakfast, 10 for lunch, 10 for dinner, 5 for snacks/appetizers. I’m not going to put too much focus in snack/appetizers since picking up an apple or something doesn’t require a recipe. I hope. LOL. In the end, Paleo is interesting…and since I am the type of person to try everything at least once, I wouldn’t mind. This comes after the whole 21 day cleanse though. I believe some Paleo recipes may conflict with the cleanse recipes, so I will have to just ease from the cleanse to Paleo.

★彡 How do I love thee, green tea? Let me count the ways. :u

★彡 If you plan on having a gaming marathon this weekend or in the future, please participate in G3 (Gaming and Giving for Good).You get to play video games, and help others in the process. XBox Live is even giving away free gold membership this weekend, so you can encourage your friends to join you in G3 too. You will never find a better reason to have a gaming marathon. I promise you. And if you don’t play video games then now is great time to learn. You will take part in a wonderful cause while also growing closer to the members of your household who play video games. So, really, what’s the harm? I understand if you have important plans this weekend, but if you’re just sitting around the house with nothing to do, and you happen to have a pile of games that need finishing, then this is a good time to start on them. DO IT. Ask your friends/family to sponsor you, or sponsor yourself. It doesn’t matter. All it takes is a few dollars, a love for helping others, and a love for challenges. ^^

Also, check out extra-life.org. They’re having a 24 hour gaming for charity marathon in October. So let’s plan for that and, of course, do not forget to donate as well! >_<

Alright, that’s all I have to post. Have a great weekend, everyone!

G3/Extra Life participants, play plenty! 🙂

#me #literallysame #butseriouslygeralt

☆彡 My birthday began early this year. I’m still speechless, man. o_o

  • The Witcher: Last Wish
  • The Witcher: Blood of Elves
  • The Witcher (PC Game)
  • Dhammapada (Friedrich Max Muller’s edit)
  • Six new R.A. Salvatore books…all Drizzt-related: Homeland, Exile, Soujorn, The Legacy, Starless Night, and Siege of Darkness
  • The Smashing Pumpkins: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
  • Brave New World (novel)

Gigantic thank you to Mark. I’m super grateful. Or, as I told him: “Argh! Right in the obsessions!” LOL. We’re weird. As always. Don’t mind us. Either way, I was not wanting or expecting anything for my birthday, but I am still really happy about the things that he got me. Of course, I did ask him why he didn’t wait until my birthday but he said that he was too excited to see me get excited.

…I must not get excited often if people are genuinely shocked when I get excited. >_>

Um. Back on point. Thanks again, Mark. It goes beyond gifts. I am also thankful for you putting up with my Witcher obsession and my recent tendency to shut myself away to deal with the stress of these new changes we’ve been dealing with. I rarely get the chance to fully express this IRL because you always stop me by saying: “Blah. It’s alright. Don’t worry about it. Shh. It’s okay,” (XDD) but I am very thankful for you putting up with so many things when it comes to me. I really am. You’re awesome! I love you. ♥

☆彡 I can’t believe that they are bringing Sailor Moon back in 2012. How do I even handle? I don’t know! ;_;

☆彡 My biggest complaint about my new job are the 10% of customers who need to just…take a fucking nap or something. I swear the same handful of people call and/or e-mail us everyday just to be annoying. Like, what makes you think I have fifteen minutes to waste listening to you bitch about a piece of thread? People are suffering all around the world, and you want to play pitiful victim over a piece of thread? Hang up please. You know? Then we get the ones that are just so damn savage. I am not even exaggerating when I say that people literally call us looking for a fight. They will wig out over nonexistent issues just to hear themselves yell and throw a tantrum. It’s sickening that people twice my age actually behave this way. You don’t know how bad I want to answer customers like these and say: “Well, ma’am/sir, the quickest solution to this problem is to eat a dick. Have a wonderful weekend!” LOL! But…that’s work. And that’s really the only thing that pisses me off about that place. So far, I really like my co-workers and I really like the job itself though. ^_^

☆彡 Fucking. Fleas. I swear, everything has a shadow that is equal to the size of its light. Take Link. Love that cat so much it makes me curl into a ball and sigh. But every damn summer I have to deal with fleas and he’s an indoor cat and none of this makes sense and fleas are the worst creatures to ever come into existence on his planet. THE WORST.

☆彡 I am working on a side story about a huntress because I am motivated by all these hunters and huntresses that I’ve been reading about. But motivation can be a dangerous thing. One, the “high” of motivation tends to put me in a frenzy, and I immediately want to work on something…even if it is poorly planned. Two, once that high of motivation wears off, it is easy to just throw away all the progress made simply because I don’t feel like it anymore. But those are the moments when you get the best results, you know? That moment is the change from motivation to habit. Habit isn’t supposed to be fun and energizing, but it is necessary for progress. You only lose that momentum from motivation when you lose track of what got you motivated in the first place. And this type of realization could be applied to pretty much every aspect of my life. I tend to get really motivated about things and then allow simple distractions to get in my way. I am not too worried about keeping momentum with this story because it is just for fun, but I would like to continue going with the other things in my life that I abandoned. When I feel like doing those things the least, I will do them the most!

☆彡 Starting tomorrow, I have to begin this complicated face routine because I am breaking out like crazy over here. So, that’s a blast. I hope it works.

☆彡 Aloe Vera is too amazing to not be sacred in some way. 😮

…I don’t know what else to say. I planned to stay up later, but I’m really tired. So that definitely means no The Witcher. It is impossible to just play that game for a few minutes. It’s that marvelous. LOL. So, I’m just going to work on my story a bit, read a bit, and then sleep a lot. Then tomorrow it is off to handle repetitive errands until I feel like running into a brick wall. I really should get back to those weekly challenges, but I’m not online as much as I used to be. The most I spend online is 30-45 minutes a day these days, so writing my progress on a blog is pretty low on my priority list. Still, it is not an excuse to not set up goals.

Even if I have to write my goals on a piece of paper and post a picture later then that will do. With that said, week one of July is already gone but I will start on new goals on the 8th. Even if I have to take a picture of it. >_<

Alright. That’s it. I hope everyone stays cool. It’s ridiculous out there, especially if you’re in the south. So keep yourselves hydrated. Please! Remember that if you’re thirsty then you’re already dehydrated. So don’t bother putting it off. Drink something. Okay, I’m done sounding like everyone’s mother. Sorry for virtually scolding. LOL! Take care guys. 🙂

( NEAT. )

As happy as I am to finally have a full-time job, it is tiring. Or maybe it is tiring because I am taking in so much information and new changes in one week. Either way, I am exhausted! It’s only 10:30 p.m. but I am already ready to sleep. This is good. It’s far better than my usual 2-3 a.m. time.

Well, I’m going to head out. But, before I go, some pictures! This has been a fairly cool week. >_<

image

Sorry about the sideways pictures, BUT CHECK THIS SHIT OUT! After months and months and months of searching, I finally find a Barriss Offee action figure. I am not opening this. Fuck that. But I will leave it on my wall so I can admire her forever.

image

Creeper Khajit. It tickled me, so I had to take a picture of it.

image

My goal is to have enough Buddha-related things to fill many rows of empty shelves. So, if you see anything Buddha- related please let me know. It will bring me a ridiculous amount of happiness.

image

Last but not least, my LARP (Live Action Role Playing) Diet center. If it’s LARP Diet related, I tack it on the wall or I put it in the box on the ground below the picture. Didn’t take a picture of that…since it’s just a box full of crap. LOL. In RPG fashion, it does involve a lot of guidelines, and a lot of math, but it is fun. You can probably see Barriss hiding between my board, and the jellyfish poster XD. The board has the “30 Things To Stop Doing” on it since I believe that physical health is damn near impossible without mental and emotional health. I read this aloud every morning and every night. It…”centers” me. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s like the day pushes me over, and this poster turns me back to my proper position. I’m very happy that I did this.

What else…? Oh, there is that chart with my measurements. Luckily, you can’t see my measurements there because the quality is so bad. Fufufufufu~ I’ll end up posting all of that crap at some point anyway. The way I see it, if I am too ashamed to say my measurements out loud then maybe it’s time to change my measurements, you know? -_- Either way, working on that. You may see that my deadline is Halloween, and you may also see the random video game ladies scattered around the board. These are the women I want to dress up as for Halloween. So, that’s my motivation. I also need a picture of Korra at some point, but I’ve yet to print one. I will soon.

Okay. That’s about it. I’ll post more pictures and updates later. Especially E3 updates. I’ve been keeping up, but it’ll take HOURS to sum up how I feel about everything. So…this weekend, I hope.
