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!
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!
I am sorry for the lack of posting here as I have been rather busy. I have had a cough since late January that is still bugging me to this date. I was running a slight fever but that seems to have subsided. Since I have been slightly better minus the cough, I got my hair cut and beard trimmed. I have no picture to show but let’s say that I feel a whole lot better. My beard was messy and unkempt and my hair was running wild. I feel so much better now that I have been cleaned up! Now I have a nice and short goatee; I’m looking good :)
I went for a swim today. 45 minutes of laps and splashing around has a tendency to wear you down. I enjoyed a nice, hot shower and a good shave afterward and it was glorious! The weather here has been insane. Yesterday it was clear and sunny with a high of 65. Today it is flooding and the temperature is around 35. I can’t wait for this bad weather to subside and have it get nice and temperate again! I also can’t wait for outdoor pools to open in late May. Swimming is an awesome workout rivaling lifting weights.
I have been diving into Fable II and Fallout IV quite heavily, though I have been into Fable II more so than Fallout IV. I have also been watching my anime via the Xbox console as well. I am at the first terminal in Fallout IV. The game is very addictive. I like the fact that the game is very interactive and you have different choices and paths to take. The leveling system is pretty cool, too. My aim is pretty bad but Dogmeat helps me out a lot and I get lucky with a head shot once in a while.
I am working on a few projects. I am writing another story and am on the lookout for new things to render and make some more wallpapers. If anyone out there has something they want rendered, let me know! I will render anything that my skill level warrants. If you want a custom wallpaper made get a hold of me and I am sure that we can work something out.
Yesterday was my 30th birthday…. yikes I’m getting old! I had a great time with my friends. I got a digital code to get Fable II. Now I have Fallout 4 as well as Fable II to keep me occupied!
I had a red velvet cake with raspberry filling, thanks to my friend Sasha for baking it! I had a huge slice as well as a ton of goulash in my belly. I felt full, cold, hot and clammy. I was miserable I was so full. When I got home last night I took a hot shower and I felt 100% better. It is amazing what a shower can do.
There is so much ice on the roads and sidewalks here it’s not even funny. I almost slipped last night! This medical boot has zero traction so it was quite difficult to maneuver on it. Time to relax and game! Ja~
