It's been pretty long since I posted on my LJ, but here I am yet again trying to get something out for all my loyal fans to read. So, let's see. Something interesting that happened since I last posted. Hmmm....
Well, first off, I finally moved out of my parent's house and I'm living with two close friends in an apartment. It's a lot harder now that I have to buy my own food, clothes, etc. etc. along with paying my rent. It does get a bit lonely being by myself, but I have my dog to take care of most of that. Also, my brother moved out as well. He's in a misson at the moment in Chicago. He moved out shortly after Christmas and he seems to be doing pretty good for himself. I know I complained a lot about him in the past, but still his my bro and I love him to death. My mom's place seems oddly silently without him around to joke with. :/
I'm still working at the hospital washing dishes but how long I'll be able to stay there without losing my mind is anyone's guess. I don't get paid a lot and the hours are all most nonexistant. It hurts, I'll tell you that much. I'm probably going to start looking for a new job soon, if I can ever motivate myself to start looking. School has been going okay, but I've missed quite a bit of it. I need to start buckling down with that.
Well, since I caught you guys up on how my life has been going lately, the abridged version anyways, let's move on to some other stuff.
I recently picked up the Hulk Vs. DVD and loved it immensly. Hulk Vs. Wolverine was extremely brutal, especially for an American cartoon, and Hulk Vs. Thor had an extrememly epic feel to it. I'm thinking about picking up an Xbox 360 if the economic stimulis plan goes through, which I don't think has passed completly yet. There's quite a few games coming out that I'm really looking forward to, or that I really want to play, and the only way I'll be able to play them is if I get that or a PS3.
Also, Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy have been confirmed for the new Batman Arkham Asylum game. I don't think I've ever been so excited to hear voice actors announced for a video game.
So, I finally got around to watching two classic anime series that I had never seen before, Cowboy Bepop and Slayers. I borrowed Cowboy Bepop from a friend of mine and bought the first season of Slayers myself, for only $20. Don't really know why it took me so long to finally get around to watching these shows, but I'm glad I did. I enjoyed both shows greatly. I would tell you my thoughts on both of them, but I'm sure that they've been written down somewhere else before and have been put in to far more eloquent words than I could ever come up with. I also bought the complete series of Burst Angel. I thought it was decent, though it could've been a lot better.
No new pair of glasses yet. Hopefully I'll have a new pair by tomorrow or the next day.
I have, officially, found the most original and stupidest way to break a pair of glasses.... ever. I was at work and left to go to the bathroom. As I was finishing up, a lens from my glasses popped of just as I was flushing the toilet and fell in, getting flushed into oblivion as I stared, mouth opened wide, at the dumbest stroke of bad luck I have ever been a part of. I know for a fact that later on in my life I will look back on this and laugh until I'm blue in the face, most of my friends are doing that at this moment, but right now I just want to plow my head through my desk. It'll take me sometime next week for me to get a new pair, since the place that I go to for my eye check-ups can't cut the glasses there. Now, if you'll excuse me.
*head-desk* *head-desk* *head-desk*
Though it seems like I'm not to good at them. I just went into my bedroom and looked at all the games I own. I have not beaten 17 out of 32 of my games, and if you add all the games on my Sonic Mega Collection, Megaman Anniversary Collection, Legend of Zelda Compilation and all the games I've downloaded off the Virtual Console then the unbeaten game count shoots up to astronomical portions. That's why I'm designating tomorrow, Thursday and Friday as gaming days. Where I'll spend the whole day before work, and most of the time afterwards, playing those unbeaten games and trying my best to beat some of them, at least.
I don't know why I seem to have such a hard time beating games. I think it's because when I get stuck on one or another I'll put it down for a while and when I pick it up again I have no clue what to do. Here's hoping I can get some of them beaten, at least.
Well, Merry Christmas everyone! Though, it's kinda late for that. Stupid procrastination... >.>
Cool gifts I got this year:
A New computer from my Dad. (My parents are split up right now and planning a divorce)
Phoneix Wright Trials and Tribulations
Air the Motion Picture (Very good and very sad. D:)
Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
Jacksonville Jaguars Wall clock
That's about it for the cool stuff. The rest was mostly things I needed. Socks, a new belt, work pants, shaving cream. Stuff like that. Also, I picked up Elite Beat Agents with a gift card someone gave me. So much fun. ^_^ I also got FEAR, which I'll probably continue playing once I work up the nerve to. XD
Well, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year.
Okay, who's bright idea was it to release the 15th volume of FMA a few weeks before Christmas, when I have no money?!
Also, I'll be seeing I Am Legend tonight. I'll probably post my thoughts on it later.
