Wanna Get Some Crads?

I think I have a problem. I drove 3 hours yesterday to go look at a magic the gathering shop. Why did I do this? I clearly did not think that through....okay so I just sort of went along for the ride but really? Well it was fun anyway. And it gave me a story to tell. At least I didn't buy anything-unlike my boyfriend and his friends. They bought two booster boxes and ended up spending...well a lot. And soon, it'll be me. I don't know if I'll spend nearly as much all at once but...well let's just say the first things I look at when I enter a comic shop are not the comics. Do you think they have a MagicTheGatheringAnonymous thing? "Welcome to MTGAnon." That does have a nice ring to it.

The thing I find is this: we all have our addictions. Everyone has their vice. Be it MTG, video games, cigarettes, popularity, or anything else...it's there. I wonder how do these effect us? Positively or negatively? Largely or minutely? I guess it all depends on your perspective. What are you addicted to?

Yay Spring Break!

Hiya peoples! So I'm in a pretty good mood. Why? Cause spring break that's why! No midterm exams for me and spending several days at home in pj's doing nothing. I definitly enjoyed it. I was planning to do some sewing this week but...well it just didn't happen. I did watch a ton of Buffy the Vampire Slayer though. With my granny of all people. She's pretty conservative so I'm kind of surprised she liked it. 

Oooh and guess what I did just before break? I beat another video game! Bioshock Infinite. God I love that game! It's sooo good. I started the first one as soon as I beat Infinite. I also started a new online game thing called Solia Online. It's kind of like Gaia Oline except stuff is more expensive and so far the people seem nicer.  It's not bad. Oh and have you ever played Sims 2? The one for PSP. It's so much different than all the pc Sims games (as in 1 and 3 at least). I believe there is also one for PS2. I played it forever ago; but anyway, I digress. I've had the game for ages but stuff always happen and I end up losing my save file and having to start over again (just like with Kingdom Hearts), but this time it seems nothing will stand in the way of me and beating this game. It's nice in that you actually meet and have dialog with people and are always directly involved with your sim. You have actual missions and goals and what not. Granted, there is quite a bit less customization. Such a good game though. You get to meet aliens and vampires, were-pugs and evil scientists, and even some guy who uses mind control on you to acomplish things....oh and some guy with a robot for a wife.

Anyways that's been my life since Friday night. I'm actually going to be doing a little bit tonight-I'm going to study and hem some shorts for my roommate (why I'm not sure...I don't really like her since she's a compulsive lier and broke my computer and my phone charger...I'm digressing again) and get my mesurements done. I bought some fabric and I'm going to try and put together a couple pieces with it. I did visit my great granny at the nursing home a couple times. She seems to be better but my mom doubts she's long for this earth....I'm not sure how to deal with that thought yet really.

Also-I'm sorry for not posting for a while. Time is more grr than I thought. No matter. I'll simply say I try and post as much as I can. And I promise I won't forget you. Well I'm done writing for the day I think...brightest blessings and have a beautiful day.

Woop! I beat a new game!

Well I'm sitting here and guess what I'm doing? Thant's right-avoiding homework. What can I say? Attention is difficult for me. And I'm sleepy...and hungry....I should get a snack. On the bright side my page has been looked at like 40 something times. In my brain, that's awesome. I just wish people would sign the guest book. Oh well, can't force them I suppose.

College was everyhting I thought it would be, and way too much of it. Too much work, but too much freedom to slack off. I feel so...unacomplished...but when I actually do something I feel awesome.

I also woke up sick today. My throat hurts like a teeny tiny cat jumped in and clawed it's way down the back. Owww okay maybe not quite that bad. But it hurts. Badly. And I also have no voice. This is more of an annoyance than anything. Hopefully I do not have strep cause that would suck more than a vaccume fresh off of a diet....too many coparisons or whatever? Probably. I don't know. I've done almost nothing but sleep today. I missed class because I couldn't get up because I was just too exauhsted. I hate being sick.

On the bright side I beat Beyond: Two Souls yesterday after two days. I felt awesome. I haven't beaten many video games. And this game was fantasic-the gameplay, the graphics, the diolouge-I enjoyed every ounce of it. I'm going to play it like 20 or so more times just to choose different thing. The whole interactive story-line thing was genius. There are just so many ways it can go! And there is a HUGE reveal at the end-no spoilers here-that was a total "DUH! How could you not see this!?" moment. Plus I'm completely IN LOVE with Ellen Page. She is a total boss. Completely gorgeous. If I were to meet here and she were to ask me to drop everything and become her "Holly houswife" I'd do it in a heart beat.....okay maybe not. But still. She is such an amazing actress. What's really interesting is that she did all the motion stuff for the game. They put one of those motion sensor-suits on her with over 200 dots on it.

Anyways...I suppose I better get to work. Over and out y'all. 

Proud Citizen of the Procrastination

Posted by Turtle on February 15, 2014 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I'm sitting here at the library listening to some music and (obviously) writing this. Should I be doing this? No. Definitely not. What I should be doing is research for my two projects in my design class that are both due next week and I haven't even started on. I'm kind of screwing myself here. Yay procrastinaion! I am a proud slacker but, hey; aren't we all? I mean how many of us have pulled the "Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow?" shtick? Exactly. My mom's always on my back about how I need to do more than the bare minimum but that's all I leave myself time to do. But how could I not? I need to leave myself time for Bioshock and Kingdom Hearts. And the animes. Oh the animes.

Honestly though, I think I'm just stressed. I put off stuff I don't want to do because doing it stresses me out. Then I get even more stressed because By the time I get to it I have hardly any time to do a good job on whatever it is. Add to that dealing with too many people in my life-believe me there is such a thing as too many friends-and dealing with mental scarring left from things in my past, and I just feel like sleeping. I talk about video games and anime like I have time for that, but really I'm so spread trying to go to class, go back and forth twice a week between here and another city 45 minutes away, make time to see my parents, and see all my friends. And now my great-grandmother is sick and in hospice care. I will tell you this-dementia is not a friend of mine. She's got a sick sense of humor.

I'm really making this heavyier than I wanted-this is way too serious and depressing for my liking, but I guess that's what's on my mind. Yay anonymity!

On the bright side I had a spiritual awakening the other night. I'm really delving into myself lately. Figuring out your beliefs is really important. I'm still debating whether to get into that here...I mean I wanted this to be my life, my shell, my mind, what have you but...I don't know. I guess I worry it will be very unpopular and become a waste of time. I mean, I like to pretend I don't care what people think of me but I really do. I suppose it doesn't matter-I mean I plan to stay pretty anonymous for the most part so I don't have to worry about people botering me in real life...just here. I'll make a desicion son, anyway. At the least this could become a healthy outlet for me. I'll deal with stuff, get it off my chest, and just talk to you.

Either way, there will be a lot of controversial and emotionally heavy stuff in this blog-but some fun happy stuff too. Just wait until I start talking about the renaissance fair, and anime conventions, and stuff. Ooh boy. In other words, this isn't just a blog, but a diary. A window into my brain train. I ask just a little from you: be open minded. Be kind. Be thoughtful. And remember I'm totally opening up here. Everything is honest and everything is real.

See you in the wired.
