Starting Out the New Year

January 5, 2012 at 08:15 PM - Real Life

I hope everyone had a Happy Holiday and New Year, yes?

Visited the family in California on the weekend before Christmas. Figured out why my lil' cousin hasn't been playing WoW lately: got addicted to Minecraft, ha. Aside from the family drama, it was fun.

Was supposed to go back to work on the 28th... But then I suddenly sprained my neck. Holy crap, was it painful; I could barely turn my head, ugh...

Went to the doctor, got prescriptions for muscle relaxants and pain killers, and was knocked out for a week.

Well, at least it gave me some extra free time to play SWTOR, eh-heh.

By New Years Day my neck started to feel a lot better. Had a barbeque. Learned how to make chicken alfredo. Note to self: less cheese next time.

. . .

Also, I totally forgot that it's the Year of the Dragon? I'm going to turn 24 this year? ...Man.

Happy Holidays!

I'll be heading over to California for the weekend~!

Also, I somehow thought that now was a great time to reformat my computer, so scanning art and what-not will be on hold.

Currently updating/downloading my games... (Damn you, Steam sales!) At least I got Joshua a (kinda late) birthday present, heh.

Speaking of games...

I forgot to post about the first one (mostly because there wasn't enough time left once I found out about it), but the second Humble Indie Bundle is up! You get to pay what you want for 5 awesome indie games (or, if you pay above the average, you can get the first bundle too).

Quick! There's only 2 days left for it!

Oh! And, once again, Happy Holidays!

*Ahem*

Hellooo, Internet! It's been awhile!

I was thinking of writing up some tweak guides for Mass Effect 2, but I'ma save it for a later post. For now, I'm gonna list some random stuff that's happened in the past month-and-a-half. Ready? Let's go! *derp*

  • School's started. I'm going to be busy busier. I've almost forgotten what it's like to be back in school, ha.
  • Finished ME2 (and, recently, the Shadow Broker DLC). All on Insanity difficulty. As a Sentinel. (I love Tech Armor.)
    • Definitely gonna play the DLC again for the lulz and because I was disappointed that I didn't take any screenshots the first playthrough. D'oh!
    • Just realized that the music on recruitment missions are actually a part of a character's theme song. I really like Samara's and Tali's. Too bad some songs didn't make it to the OST, like the one that plays during the Long Walk.
  • Bought a PSP to replace my first-gen iPod. Silly idea, I know. But I've figured out how to make simple playlists via Notepad, and I can play PSP games and Emus (during lunch break... *cough*)!
  • Finished P3P. Which is kinda silly, because we already have P3: FES for the PS2. But I really didn't get that far (as in I didn't fight the Priestess Full Moon boss) when I played it back then, probably because I was like "Oh God, another Persona game, there goes 60+ hours..." Pfft.
    • I played as the female MC since my brothers where curious about the changes to dialogue and Social Links. Aki and Shinji are frickin' adorkable.
    • Most likely going to look for the soundtracks for this game too.

Annnd I caught the cold. Been like this since Sunday, but it's clearing up now. Whew!

So. Very. Tired...

*facedesk*

...Oh, hello!

Um, apologies for the absence (again). I've moved to a different clinic to work at since mid-January and they've been keeping me busy, eh-heh.

Yes, I still go to school. (OhGodI'mgonnabehereforever~)

At least it's Spring Break next week! :D

. . .

Uhhhn, still have work tomorrow. Must. Sleep. Now.

A Vampire by Day...

My manager once told me something along the lines of "the more you draw, the better you'll get at it."

...Drawing blood, of course. :P

Haven't drawn blood in over 2 months, so I was sent to a different clinic to find human pincushions get the hang of it again.

It's been about a year since I first learned how, but now I've drawn over 100 different patients. (And failed sticking so many more... Hey, I'm still learning!) XD

And Then, and Then, and Then...!

(Guh, plugging in random posts... This is really becoming a bad habit of mine... -.-)

Spent the last week hanging out with the family, and I'm EXHAUSTED.

Went to Soak City... Gosh, it's been a ling time since we've gone swimming. Whole. Body. Aching. Ugh. X_x

. . .

Oh yeah, I was supposed to post about Thieves in kDnF's Test Server... O_o

U-um, uhh! Well, Necromancers seem to need a lot of micro-managing... (Always wondering where Nicholas was at, duoing with Bellacre...)

The challenge is nice, but I'm really liking the Shadow Dancer's abilities so far, heh.

. . .

Oh mans, DFO's Closed Beta's gonna start soon...

Wait, it's almost the end of July already?! O3o;

We Love Our GameStop

June 30, 2009 at 09:50 PM - Games, Real Life

* At Our Local GameStop... *

Cashier: You're here for something. Lemme guess... BlazBlue?
Me: Er, yeah. You got the Limited Edition for the PS3?
Cashier: Yep! *gets the box and scans it* This is our last one until the regular version ships next month.

* Later... *

Me: Wow, guys, we got their last BlazBlue in stock.
Me: *blinkblink* ...Wait, didn't the same scenario happen with Persona 4? That we got their last copy?
Chris (younger brother): Yeah. I checked the website right after we bought ours... It's backordered.
Joshua (youngest brother): Y'know, the same thing also happened with Fallout 3 and Left 4 Dead...
Me: Wait, wut? Really? Wow, we're incredibly lucky then.
Joshua: Indeed.
Me: Well, you guys go play. I'ma go check the soundtrack.

(And no, we have never pre-ordered a game. Ever.)

(BTW, The OST is awesome. :D)

Spring Semester Is Ovahhh!

May 15, 2009 at 05:44 PM - Real Life

And I am totally burned out by school and work. *flops to floor*

Whew! I don't think that I'm gonna take summer classes this year, haha. Most likely gonna sign up for two classes for Fall... Hm... Online classes? Maybe...

But, for now, I need sleep.

Takin' Ur Bloodz, Performin' Tests

April 19, 2009 at 09:29 PM - Real Life

This week is National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week!

And we got gifts from our company! Last year we got t-shirts; this year is tote bags, cups, and buttons. XD

Anyway, this week is to celebrate the lab personnel who deal with your bodily fluids (and excrement... *shudder*) everyday. Sure, it sounds disgusting, but we're the first to see your results. If something really bad comes up, we immediately tell the doctor (who informs the nurses to call you for a follow-up appointment).

Also, I recommend looking around Quest Diagnostics' Test Menu if you're curious as to why your doctor orders certain tests. "What's that test for?" actually comes up pretty often when we draw patients, eh-heh. ^ ^; (Any tests that we don't do in our lil' lab is sent out to Quest. Another lab we also send out to is LabCorp, which is done if your insurance doesn't cover for Quest.)

...

Gosh, last week went by so fast...
