New Year, New Goals

Hey!!! It’s 2016!

Woot! Woot!

Yep, it’s a New Year, and with that, New Year’s Resolutions.

Although, I’ve come to the ever-human-realization that I can’t keep a damn promise on “doing’ any of the resolutions I made, I’ve decided to instead focus on “Goals” instead. Which ultimately, gets ticked off in my “Bucket List”, which is a list of things you want to do before you “kick the bucket”… also known as dying.

Okay… so last year, I ticked off three goals in my Bucket List. I dyed my hair red (albeit temporarily), got a tattoo (2, for that matter), and learned an instrument (my ukulele)

So now, for this years goal, one of them is this:


Yep. I’m to start dancing again. XD

I mean, yeah, I did belly dance before, but now I want to learn Hip-Hop and Zumba, which I think I prefer, even though I have a not-so-pretty “stank face”.

Anyway, I can’t afford any private lessons yet, so I’m going to start simple by playing more Xbox Kinect. Hopefully that might help, not just in my dance but in my fitness as well…

Wish me luck! XD

A Gamer Rant

Okay, so here’s the thing…

You all know that I’m a gamer right, and that gaming is my thing, and right now I am currently obsessed about a game called “Dragon Age: Inquisition”. I am actually so obsessed with it and the series that every character I made positively LOOKS like me (they have a character creation thing where you can edit the main character’s face, from the shape of your face to the color of your eyes), and that I even started theorizing stuff about the games history that I end up commenting my theories in YouTube.

But recently, the game’s developer, BioWare, just announced that they will no longer be releasing any more updates and downloadable content (DLC) for the Xbox 360, which happens to be MY console, and that all future DLCs will only be released for their next generation gaming consoles, namely, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.

And thus this is my question…

WTF, MAN?

Gaming companies, seriously, if you release a game in one type of console, proper decorum dictates that you release updates and DLC on THAT type of console as well, and not just New Gen Consoles. Focusing too much on New Gen leaves us behind, and I, for one, did not buy the Xbox 360 just for graphics, but rather for gaming experience, because let’s face it, the 360 has much MORE available games than the Xbox One. It has games still available ever since you released the machine in 2008, so it has thousands and thousands of games compared to the new gen. And unless you plan on making the Xbox One backward compatible with ALL your games, then I am not going to buy the New Gen.

And also, if the DLC you’re going to release is going to be the game’s Epilogue, like DA:Inquisitions Trespasser (the video below), then by rights, us Old Gen console owners DESERVE to know it ending. Honestly it’s like reading Harry Pottor books in paperback but realizing that the 7th book is only available for iPad in PAID subscription!

And here I thought of buying the best studio monitor stands for my sound system. The game’s soundtrack and music is frickin’ awesome, especially the tavern songs.

Ugh… gaming companies. It’s almost like they don’t care for their gamers. ~_~”

Bibliophilia…

Bibliophilia : :  a lover of books especially for qualities of format; also :  a book collector

my books!

My shelf is getting too small for me. T_T

Yep… these are my books. Or half of them since I’ve already donated some of them to the library I work in.

And as of the moment, I need more space for my books.

I know, I know. With all the technology today, I can probably stuff all these books into my cellphone’s memory card and read them on the road. But what can I say? I’m a librarian. I’m addicted to paper books. Not to mention you can’t really bring your phone and whip it out whenever you want to read. My phone is not really that expensive, but still, I don’t want it to get snatched out of my hands when I’m in public.

My family is actually complaining about the amount of books I have, but I love them so much! I’d keep and collect antique volumes if I could… but then they’d probably be really expensive…

Maybe I should attach Fulterer soft close drawer slides and make an extendable drawer for my smaller books? Or maybe another shelf?

Argh!!! The problems of a book collector…

Deadpool: The Movie!

MOVIE NEWS!!!

So apparently, the movie for this Marvel anti-hero is coming up, and as a bit of a comic book fanatic, I’m kind of excited. Mainly because Ryan Reynolds is a pretty good Deadpool… even better than his role as the Green Lantern.

Which is great, considering Deadpool kind of got off story in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (if you haven’t watched that, you should).

Props to him making fun of his Green Lantern suit. Hahaha!

Anyway, the movie isn’t coming out until February 2016, but my bestfriend and I are pretty excited to see this. We’ll stick with the viewing the Attack on Titan movie in the meantime.

This reminds me, maybe I should get the Deadpool game for my Xbox 360. My sister was a little curious about it…

Heeeyyyy!!! I’m back!

fsfsffsf

Heeeyyyy!!! I’m back!
Yeah, well, sorry about not being able to post recently. My time has been divided into so many things recently. I’ve been continuing my FanFiction writing, and my Xbox 360 gaming. I’ve also been working on my own fiction work but it’s taking a while to finish (damn you, writer’s block! *shakes fist to the sky*).
Anyway, I think I’m going to be a little bit busier now, since I’ve decided that it’s about high time I buy myself a guitar and start learning the damned thing. I’ve put it off for years, and I’m not getting any younger. XD
Although I might need to buy one of these, since I’m having a hard time hearing stuff nowadays (and don’t tell me it’s a ‘sign’ of aging, I’m not that old yet, people).
I’m listening to Dream Theater’s Hollow Years right now, maybe I should start trying to learn this one first. I just wish I could find a guitar that would fit my teeny, tiny short fingers. I’m having trouble with normal acoustic guitars because the fret boards are too wide, or maybe I’m just used to an ukulele’s fretboard.
Wish me luck, yeah?! ^_^v

Practice Makes Perfect?

And now back to my gaming news…

Now that I have an Xbox 360 with Kinect, I am now seriously, SERIOUSLY practicing this.

And it’s not going to well.

I don’t have any DLC (Downloadable Content) songs yet, so this is the hardest song in my playlist as of now. And it is a b… really hard. XD

I guess my fluffiness is attributed to my issues with dancing this song. And my dance space is really not that roomy, but being a bit of a completionist, I can’t help but be disappointed with myself that I just can’t get this right. My feet get all tangled up, I get tired much too easily, and I can’t do the jumping and the fast steps. The guy dancing here is awesome to have done it. T_T

That doesn’t mean I’m going to give up though. I’mma finish this!!!

Maybe I just need one of those magnectic jewelry to increase my stamina or something. I heard the benefits of magnetic bracelets includes an increase in physical stamina, which I would probably need to do all the quick steps.

Hopefully, this thing could help with my fluffiness too, I heard that some people lost weight because of Dance Central. XD

Metallica Broke A World Record!

So I was surfing around 9gag.com (yeah, I’m a frequent visitor there ^_^) when I saw this:

a5NrdEy_700b

Metallica played in concerts in ALL 7 CONTINENTS?!

HOLYYY CRAAAAP! THAT’S AWESOME!

I actually saw a clip on YouTube on how they did it… they held a concert in Antarctica for a bunch of scientist doing research there, in a glass dome with everyone wearing specialized headphones to hear them (apparently, something about the Antarctic makes sounds get all screwed up). And here I thought they just wanted to play there for no reason. I doubt the animal life there were metal rockers… or maybe they are.  XD

Anyway, I hope they hold a concert here in the Philippines soon again. I think the last time they came here was 1993… and I didn’t have the money to go back then, being still an elementary student. I’d die a happy, content mortal death if I could attend their concert (and maybe get a meet and greet… XD)

And I still believe that my brother looks like Kirk Hammett… particularly in this picture. I think the only difference is their noses. They even have the same smile here. That’s freaky. O_O

Please, Metallica! Do a concert in the Philippines! And maybe a meet and greet! Pretty please! I’d show you guys my brother and you decide if he really looks like Kirk. ^_^

Nobody Expects The (Dragon Age) Inquisition!

Heyyyy! I’m back! Sorry I haven’t blogged for a while. I’ve been pretty busy… you know… gaming.

Mainly because I finally have (ta-ta-tadaaaa) a Xbox 360!! Yay for me!

I know, I know… the Xbox has been around for AGES, and I was only able to get it now, mainly because it was a present by my sister for my 30th birthday. Sure, the Xbox came out about the same time as the PS2, but hey, you got to prioritize right? We got the PS2 mainly because of Final Fantasy X and Okami (which is STILL and FOREVER WILL BE THE BEST GAME EVER!). If I had the Xbox at an earlier time, it probably would’ve drowned during the 2009 Typhoon Ketsana flooding. Still, I’m pretty happy that I have one now, since I can catch up with my console gaming again.

And one of the first games I bought was Dragon Age: Origins. What can I say? I love Alistair (and Steve Valentine for that matter). There’s always a chance that a gamer to fall in love with a character, specially if that character is as funny and as faithful as a lover like Alistair. <3

Anyway, so I heard that Dragon Age: Inquisition is coming up soon (November 18th, 2014 if I remember correctly)… and it’s going to be available for the Xbox 360 (AWWW YEAAAAAHHH!!!!). Although I’ve heard that the graphics won’t be as pretty as when you would play it on an Xbox One, I’m still pretty happy that there would be a continuation to the game’s story (although according to the game’s creators, the previous protagonists from Dragon Age: Origins and 2 would make some sort of “appearance”). And as much as I want to play it as soon as it comes out, I still want to finish Dragon Age 2 first before I do.

What can I say? I fell in love with Anders. XD

The game’s trailer looks AMAZING. And the music of it is certainly not helping in curbing my enthusiam for the game. Just listening and watching the trailer and other videos about the game makes me want to hit that “Mail your order today!” for the game. But… like I said, I want to be able to finish the games and understand everything what’s been going on in the story before I order the next one on November.

But I AM going to get it though. I’m already playing through the story as quickly as I could… although Alistair’s adorable-ness is making it difficult for me.

DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION ON NOVEMBER, PEOPLE!!!! I don’t know about you, but I’m already saving up for it.

Jewelry Making 3

Sorry I haven’t blogged for a while… I’ve been pretty busy.

Between my writing and my jewelry making and my work, I’m actually pretty stumped that I can survive so many hobbies. (Although I regret letting go of my Bellydance aspirations… ah well..)

Anyway, I think I’m getting the hang out of this jewelry-making thing. I’ve repaired several of my mother’s bracelets and made new earrings that a lot of people at work are beginning to like. Granted, they’re not as pretty or exquisite as the jewelry from www.joyjewelers.com/, but hey, I think I could probably make a living out of this.

Most of the things I make are pretty simple, mainly because I make them simply to match the color of my clothes and uniforms. My mom agreed that I should make some really simple ones and sell them at a slightly cheap price to start my business, but I’m still thinking about it. I am still a little busy with my writing…

Anyway, the way I see it, beaded jewelry will not really go out of fashion, so hopefully I could make some for other people. I got some extra beads that I could make for them anyway.

Pictures to follow once I’ve had the presence of mind to take them… sometimes I get so concentrated on making jewelry that I forget. XD

The Streak Ends?! NOOOOO!!!!

And more on Wrestling News…

I just found out that The Undertaker’s Wrestlemania Streak has ended… it’s now… 21-1…

WHY?!?!?!?!

I don’t understand WHY!?!?! WHY DID IT HAVE TO END?!

And I just found it here on the InterNet too! I had to scour the InterNet about how Taker lost instead watching it on my freakin’ cable because I didn’t know the schedule of WWE in my cable!

AND WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE FRICKIN’ BROCK LESNAR?!

I’m sorry… I’m sorry… I know it’s a scripted sport, and I know that The Undertaker was getting old and all those years are starting to take a toll on his body. I mean, that’s almost 20+ years of wrestling, man! Of course, there’s going to be a time that he’ll retire and settle down somewhere warm and sunny and just be Mark Callaway. I, for one, as a Taker fan, want him to retire soon and enjoy life pain free from all those injuries and surgeries and what not he got from all his years in the ring.

I just don’t understand why it had to be Brock Lesnar!

I mean seriously?! Can’t you just let the guy win and retire with him still holding the belt? Dude, the man gave you the WWF/WWE the best damn concepts when it came to matches. I mean, he was the one who INVENTED Hell in a Cell, Buried Alive and the frickin’ Casket Match!

AND YOU HAVEN’T EVEN INDUCTED HIM TO THE WWE HALL OF FAME YET!

AND THEN YOU MADE HIM LOSE TO BROCK LESNAR?!

I mean seriously…. Wrestling Fans, enlighten me on this. Taker and The Streak is part of my childhood, just like Warrior. How can it just END that way?

Ugh…..! CAN SOMEBODY JUST EXPLAIN IT TO ME?! >_< First, Warrior died… and now The Streak ended… my childhood is slowly crumbling to pieces…. >_<
