First day of June and the summer weather has been hitting it very hard for a few weeks. Here in town the temperature is 90°F with a heat index of 97°F. The humidity is low for here: 55%; it still feels muggy as hell, though. In early May, the temperatures were running a nice 65°F to 75°F. Why is it so damn hot this early in June, and what happened to my spring? I suppose it is kind of good to skip the brunt of allergy season (although I still have a cough). I am hoping for a visit to my extended family up in Kansas City, MO late this month. I have some meetings and appointments, so I hope we can work out something to spend a week or so to see my family! The weather up in KC seems to be just like it is right here in town. I can hardly wait!
I have been binging Naruto over the past couple of weeks. I am on episode 91. I’m not going to talk about it to prevent spoilers just in case anyone who reads this forsaken blog won’t get hit with spoilers. A friend of mine gave me Sword Art Online and High School DxD. When I get bored of watching Naruto, which I doubt will happen soon, I will pop in a few episodes of these shows just to check them out.
I am level 68, almost 69, in AION. The grinding has gotten very slow over the past few weeks. I hope to make 70 eventually. When I get my main character to 70, I will beef up my alt character. The level cap is 75, but 70 will suffice my needs for now. Fatty tracker will be online this Sunday for those who are interested in my progress. It won’t be much at first because it has only been a week. Give it time and I plan on owning this thing! B)
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 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.
