This past month has had its ups and downs. I have not been out and about so much this month as I would like to be. I have been playing a lot of games. I am pretty much off of Fallout 4; the computer hacking isn’t up to my tastes. I have been mostly playing AION. I recently got a copy of Final Fantasy XV. I am ashamed to say that I have not begun gameplay as I also acquired a the first series of Naruto and am watching that!
I got back into chess club last Sunday. I came out 4-1-2! That broke down to 2 checkmates, 2 forced to resign to me, one loss and 2 stalemates. Not too shabby if I must say; I could have done better if my opponents weren’t so damn good at the game.
Ferg is trying to help me to learn German. I am not giving up on my Japanese studies! I also need to work on my English; I am fluent in it as I was raised in the United States, but my mental condition sort of “hinders” my speech in a way that makes me very hard to understand! So I am working on two foreign languages and my spoken English. Wish me luck!
Much thanks to my friend, Sam, for getting me hooked on yet another MMO. This one is different from TERA or Aura Kingdom. As a matter of fact, it reminds me of World of Warcraft, except it is free to play (but there are still purchasable items in the game). The game is called AION. To really get into the game, you will have to learn how to use the map and fast travel system. It took me a day or so to fully understand it all, but I get it now! There are two factions, six classes with eleven specialty subclasses to “ascend” to. The factions are basically dark and light. If you are interested at all, the classes and ascended classes are located here. My character is a level 43 assassin; I am pretty much a rogue! If you are interested, check out the website here!
Sam also wants me to try out World of Warships. I doubt that I will be that much into it as I am not a fan of much military games over RPGs, especially an RPG that I just recently got hooked on to!
I am on the hunt for English subtitles for the anime Comic Girls. I have tried subscene where I usually get my subtitles, but all they have are Arabic and Farsi/Persian. I am having one hell of a time locating the English versions!
I am going to play some AION tonight after I finish updating World of Warships u_u…
I have been cooking a lot recently. I tend to stick to easy recipes and meats such as Hamburger Helper or Tuna Helper. I tried my hand at a non-beef meat yesterday and I was plenty nervous. I made pork chops. It took sixteen minutes to cook two of the suckers. Three minutes on one side, flip, three minutes, repeat. I was scared that I might under cook the meat and get sick. Turns out I’m a pro at cooking pork! The pork chops were tender and juicy! I made Bacon Cheeseburger Hamburger Helper tonight and I added a twist: I put a ton of dried French onions in the mix–it was very tasty! I also like to make cheeseburgers and sloppy joes. I love to cook (but I hate the dishes)!
I am so worn out from the gym today. No, I didn’t lift weights or do aerobics. I swam a ton today. I put in at least around 18 to 20 laps. That is 9 to 10 miles (2 laps to a mile). My arms feel like sandbags. I hope I put my metabolism back into a high setting! I feel like I spent the whole 90 minutes lifting weights. My arms, back, chest and legs are burnt to a crisp… I’m so sore that I can’t even do my Saitama workout (100 pushups, 100 sit-ups and 100 squats).
I’m full, I’m going to lay down and watch TV. Time to relax!
I just got a copy of One Punch Man season one! I watched the dubbed version when it was aired on Adult Swim’s “Toonami”. I fell in love with the show when I saw the first episode when Saitama still had his hair. He rescued a young boy with a “butt shaped chin” from an evil crab monster. Don’t worry, it’s not a big spoiler or anything. The version I have is in Japanese with English subtitles. I like that version better because the original voices that were chosen for the show enact the characters better. An example lies in Dragon Ball Z / Super. The English seiyuu (voice actor/actress) of Son Gokuu is a male that sounds carefree; the Japanese actress (yes, it’s a female) captures Son’s innocence in a whole new way. Speaking of Dragon Ball Super, I just found out that there is a Dragon Ball Super movie coming out on December 14, 2018!
I am looking for a digital copy of Fable III for my Xbox One. I borrowed a physical copy from a friend to play around with. I am still stuck on Fallout 4 on a terminal. I will pass that point SOMETIME in the near future! I was told that lock picking would be a good alternative, but there is no lock that I can find on or near the door.
My mother has been ill with the flu for the past week. Please think of her!
Spring is almost here! There are only fifteen days of old man winter remaining. Of course there still may be some winter left. A few years ago there was a pretty decent snow storm in May. There was also a massive EF-5 tornado on May 22, 2011. So who knows what kind of “spring” we will have here in J-Town! The seasons here are as such: Winter for five months, Spring for a month, Summer for five months, then Fall for a month. Talk about a big diversity! The temperature reached 60 today; it will be around 51 on Tuesday and 44 on Wednesday. Then the temperature will rise again! It is no wonder why this winter has been hard on people with weak immune systems. Pneumonia, bronchitis and the flu have run rampant throughout most of the United States.
A good chunk of the states will get more daylight on March 11. Don’t forget to switch your clocks one hour ahead! Personally I hate DST. All it does is make me lose an hour of sleep. Sure, it is nice to have more sunshine and all, but I want my sleep, dammit! I checked out Flyleaf, by Flyleaf. I rented a copy from the library. Of course I will put a copy for my own purpose!
