 My plane flies out tomorrow, and as of Tuesday night I will officially be in Panama.  We have a hold over flight in El Salvador for about an hour, and I'm taking my Gameboy to pass the time.  I'm done packing, and today I'm just going to chill, and play a few video games.  I'm really excited guys!  This will officially be the first time I'm leaving the US.  I will definitely post lots of pics of pics on my journal when I get back.  I will see you all in a week.  :)

I will be updating on my twitter if anyone wants to follow me there.  I have it locked so as soon as you add me I'll add you back as long as I know who you are. :)


illusion_is_mine: (Default)
     So my trip to Panama will be a week from now, and I'm pretty excited!  I've never been outside the US before so this should be an awesome experience for me.  We'll spend the first 2 days at a hotel, and from there we go to the resort.  I believe this is some sort of family reunion so I'm looking forward to meeting family I've never met before.  My coworker told me to watch Spanish novellas to brush up on my Spanish.  

     Even if I don't get a chance to watch any I'm sure I'll do fine.  I remember a little bit of Spanish, and I was able to converse with my great grandmother when she came here to visit years ago despite her not speaking English.  I'm looking forward to doing all the touristy stuff, and seeing as much as I can see.  My parents and I are going with about 7 other family members including my sister, and a cousin I've met from Colorado who's about my age.  Needless to say I plan on enjoying my vacation, and making the most of it.

     In other news I watched Season 1 of the new Castlevania series on Netflix yesterday, and it's really good!  I really like the animation, and the plot is really good so far.  I'm also a fan of the games so this was right up my ally.  Here's a trailer.


Also I got a email yesterday about Hulu acquiring HBO which is cool.  I'm considering buying the service with my Hulu account, but only after I come back from the trip.  Apparently the first month is free so that's why I'm waiting until after I get back from the trip to decide if I want to do it or not.

Well I'm still a bit sick from last week, but I'm recovering. I went to pick up some of my meds today at the store, and pick up a few things. My sister went to Vegas over the weekend, and her facebook posts imply that she had a blast. It makes me look forward to our upcoming trip to Panama even more. I believe I've gotten everything I'll need as far as luggage, clothes, and other things I'll be taking on the trip.

I called about my student loans which I've been having trouble paying, and they informed me that they wouldn't actually help me until my account was behind for 15 days which is ridiculous.  It's a shame they want you to get behind, and be in trouble before they will help you.  I guess I'll just have to do that.  I'll probably just pay what I can, and when they call hopefully they can lower my interest rates, and payments for those particular loans.  Sigh...

I've been trying to avoid going outside anymore today because my dad is mowing the lawn, and allergies are no joke. As far as other things go I've been playing a few games. Mainly Persona 5, Chrono Trigger, God of War, Batman: Arkham Knight, and Metro 2033 Redux. Apparently Metro is based on a book of the same name, and the story is a bit sad. It's a survival horror game so avoided playing it the few days I was really sick since my reflexes weren't too great. I also bought a digital copy of Resident Evil 5 for pretty cheap on PSN.

Well that's it for now. Here's a song of some music I've been digging lately. I've been on a huge Depeche Mode kick lately since I picked up their "Ultra" album. That bassline tho! <3

 So somehow I've been dealing with the side effects of the Hepatitis B vaccine after getting it yesterday at the doctor's office.  Needless to say I'm feeling sick, and overall very crappy, but I'm hoping this will pass in a few days.  Ugh, I feel awful.  I'll probably spend the rest of the day either watching anime, or reading.  I do need to continue reading "American Gods", as well as a few comics, and manga I got during my birthday.  
illusion_is_mine: (The Crow: Eric Draven)
     Here's a post that isn't completely about E3.  This morning I got up, and called my doctor because I could have sworn I had an appointment this morning, and they hadn't called or notified me.  It turns out my doctor's appointment isn't until next Wednesday.  After that I went back to sleep for a little while, and got up to make me some coffee.  I did a few chores, and checked my emails an social media stuff.  

     I've been reading a bit lately.  Mostly some of the Wonder Woman Rebirth comics, as well as "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman.  My friend bought a limited edition version of American Gods for X-mas, and I've just now gotten into reading it.  It's really interesting.  I caught a glimpse of the series, and now I think I'm just going to read the book before I watch the show.  

     As for music I've been listening to all sorts of stuff.  I've been on a doom metal kick so lately it's been lots of Type O Negative, Pallbearer, and other stuff like Siouxsie and the Banshees as well as a newer band called Priests that are pretty good.  I finally bought an actual copy of Type O's "October Rust" album.  I love that album, and I've been meaning to get it for a while since I already have "Bloody Kisses", and "Life is Killing Me."  

     I saw the teaser trailer for the Black Panther movie, and it looks like it's going to be really good!  It has a great cast, and the visuals so far look great.  It's nice to see a mostly black cast in a super hero film honestly.  It's a breath of fresh air tbh.  I know everyone is still hype about Wonder Woman which was pretty good, but I think marvel has a few tricks up their sleeves with the Black Panther movie.  I'm looking forward to it.  :)

     As for gaming I've been playing Final Fantasy XV since I really need to beat that game.  I realized after my party went to a certain area to complete one of the smaller quests that every time we showed up in that area imperial ships were lurking around.  I mean seriously every time I went there...lol.  Needless to say I'm debating weather or not I'm going to complete this quest now or just wait until we've all leveled up a bit.  I've also been playing lots of Persona 5, and Persona 3.  I feel like I'm getting the hang of everything better at this point.  I took a bit of a break from P5 for a while because it's such a long game, and I know I'll be playing it for a while.

     Also obliterary Mario Odyssey trailer because I'm in awe with how beautiful this game looks.  This will probably be Mario 64 levels of awesome.  I'm calling it.

illusion_is_mine: (Wonder Woman)
    Since all the other gaming companies have sort of let me down.  Sony has only 1 new game coming out this year (The Last of Us: Lost Legacy), Microsoft has never been my cup of tea, Let's not talk about EA and Bethesda's conferences.  The only company so far that has even somewhat delivered is Ubisoft which surprised the hell out of me.  Despite that I'm going to post game trailers of stuff that I thought looked interesting.  The KH trailer wasn't featured at E3 from what I understand, but I'm posting it anyway.  I bought the first couple of KH games remastered for the PS4.  I should be getting that in the mail today.  



E3 game trailers under the cut )

     My mom decided to have my birthday dinner yesterday evening at Olive Garden after I'd gotten off work.  We got there around 6pm, and everybody was already there mostly.  It was super crowded which made a little anxious.  While we waited for a table I checked twitter for E3 updates since it already started.  We were seated soon after, and my niece Shelbi was unusually quiet for some reason.  My sister mentioned it was because she wasn't a fan of pasta, and she didn't know what to get.  We talked a bit about movies.  My mom, and I had just seen Wonder Woman, and recently Get Out so we talked about those movies.  

     The food finally came, and we ate.  My food was pretty good, but Shelbi wasn't too happy with hers because some of her food was cold.  She kept trying to get the waiter's attention, but he kept forgetting her salad dressing, and extra cheese.  To be fair it was really crowded so he probably had a bunch of tables to wait.  My sister mentioned an activity her, and her friends had recently done in which they went to a hotel played a game that was sort of like "Clue" in which you had to guess who the killer was.  It sounded super fun actually.  Apparently there were actors there, and they didn't know which people were actors so it played out like a live game of Clue.  We also talked about our upcoming trip to Panama that's coming up.  I'm really looking forward to that.  After that we paid for the dinner, and stood outside for a while and talked after my sister's boyfriend showed up to wish me a happy birthday.  Since I'd been to work that day I was really exhausted.  My sister gave me a $25 gift card to Target so mom, and I decided to make a trip to Target before we went home.  I picked up a shirt for my dad for father's day, a cute Mario/Yoshi shirt for myself, and PS4 dual controller charger.

    Now for E3 roundups.  The only panel I watched so far was Microsoft's panel talking about their new system coming out (XBox One X I believeit's called.)  They also talked about a bunch of exclusives for the system.  These are the games that I thought were interesting so far.  I think a lot of these are timed exclusives?  That's what I keep hearing anyway.    I'm mostly waiting for Sony's panel at 5pm today, and Nintendo's panel tomorrow.  I'm super hyped for any Nintendo Switch releases.  At first I wasn't too sure about all the Wii U ports being put on the Switch, but honestly more games is always a good thing.  I've never owned an Xbox system so I'm not sold on the Xbox One X tbh.  I've considered buying one of the older systems in the future though because of Half-Life 2, Halo, and a few other franchises that I've never played.  I'm really looking forward to seeing sony's exclusive announcements like maybe The Last of Us 2 since I really loved the first game.  We'll see what happens. :D  

I just watched Ubisoft, and Sony's conferences, and honestly Sony's was pretty lackluster.  Ubisoft actually had a lot of solid releases lined up this year.  Sony on the other hand only had 1 new game release for 2017 which was really a let down.  Their biggest titles down come out until 2018.  Needless to say these are the games that seem really interesting so far.

 Well this past week seemed like it took forever to be over, but now I'm finally on vacation from work!  My birthday is Thursday, but as of yet I don't have any plans aside from ordering pizza, and having a few family members over.  Oh that annoying girl finally started leaving me alone at work after she spoke one day, and I gave her the death glare.  She hasn't bothered me since..lmao.  I'm not used to being overtly mean to people so I still feel about it, but I had to make my message as clear as possible.

Also I know this award wasn't a huge deal, but BTS (Bangtan Boys) won the social media award at the billboard awards, and they looked great!  It was great to see Namjoon living up to his leader role, and giving great answers to the interview questions, and leading the boys throughout the award show.  Also It was nice that the audience stood up when their win was announced.  I was anxious it was going to be a situation similar to what happened when Rain attended a American awards show, but it seems like they were well received by everyone.  V was being a total ham, and strutted down the isle with his sunglasses...lol.  This is such a huge career booster for the boys, and I'm very happy for them.  :)  I haven't been this proud of a K-pop group in a long time.  Good work boys. :)

Congrats to BTS... )
In other news I've been listening to the new album by the supergroup Dreamcar that consists of members of No Doubt, and AFI.  I'm really digging their new album.  It's very 80's new wave inspired which is always a good thing, and miles better than anything their respected groups have put out in a while.  So far my favorites are: After I Confessed, Show Me Mercy, and The Assailant.  The new Linkin Park album however is a lot worse than I imagined it would be.  I couldn't make it past track 3, and I was streaming it on Spotify.  It's just not a good album at all IMO.  However the new album by Pallbearer "Heartless", is fantastic, as well as the new Slowdive record.  

As for gaming I'm truly at the end of BoTW, and I'm preparing to head to the castle at this point.  I've also been playing Persona 5, and finally making some progress.  I have too many games to catch up on, but I will do that this week since I'm on vacation from work. 
illusion_is_mine: (Default)
     I hope everyone enjoyed their mother's day weekend.  Mine was okay, but I had a bit of stress at work.  Remember that person at work that wouldn't leave me alone?  Yeah, she's still at it.  Yesterday when I was working the lights in our area went out.  It scared the crap out of me because my anxiety was really bad yesterday.  Needless to say when I looked up from my cubical I saw that creepy girl, along with another girl standing next to the light switch.  So she's harassing me when I work now?  At this point I'm going to go to my sister and tell her to set her straight and leave me the fuck alone.  I don't care why she's doing it at this point I just want her to stop.  I don't understand people like this at all.  I go to work, and don't bother anyone.  I know that she'll probably deny everything, but it's better to have my sister confront her since she's in management, and they're on friendly terms.  I actually told my sister about this previously, but she didn't take me seriously because "She's really nice."  Well she's nice to you, but she's an asshole to me.  Hopefully this will make her finally leave me the fuck alone.

    On a more positive note I bought my mom and Barnes and Nobels gift card for $25 since she likes reading on her tablet, and a really cute mother's day card.  They all went to my grandmother's house on mother's day, but I decided to go home since I was on edge yesterday.  I was so exhausted mentally from what happened at work I didn't have the energy to deal with anymore people.  

    Also I've been progressing in Persona 5 I'm glad to say.  I finally feel like I'm getting used to the gameplay now.  I've made a few confidants, and I feel like I'm finally forming bonds with them.  I've also been trying to finish Breath of the Wild, but I have one more minor boss to defeat before I head to Hyrule castle.  He ended up being tougher than I thought so I'm going to try to figure out a strategy and beat him today.  I also bought an Assassin's Creed game since the games were on sale on the Playstation store this previous weekend.  I bought Assassin's Creed Syndicate, and I'm really enjoying it so far.  Here's the trailer for the game.   I love steampunk stuff so this game is something I could really get into.

As for music I've been listening to Code Orange's "Forever", Siouxsie and the Banshee's "Superstition", The Creature's "Bestiary of", Balance and Composure "Separation", Title Fight "Hyperview", BTS "You Never Walk Alone", Chevelle "Wonder What's Next", Delain "The Human Contradiction", The Twilight Sad "No One Can Ever Know", and Depeche Mode "Songs of Faith and Devotion".  I need to do a post with my favorite albums I own on Vinyl now that I'm thinking about it.  It'll probably come in the near future.  

My birthday is in a few weeks!  I took that week off work, and I'm glad I did.  I will need that vacation from the stress of work considering what's been going on lately.

Work has been up and down lately.  I've been more productive overall, but today in the break room I heard this girl talking about me.  I don't want to get into the whole backstory, but basically she's been talking shit about me for a while now.  Apparently she hasn't gotten over the fact that I don't want to be her BFF.  I mean at one point I thought she was stalking me because she would always have the same breaks and lunches as me.  Now I'm not sure what her problem is I just wish she would leave me the hell alone.  People can be really weird sometimes.  

That aside I've been mostly playing Breath of the Wild, Persona 5, and Uncharted 4 in terms of gaming.  Persona 5 is really fun, and I'm getting the hang of the overall gameplay.  I'm also trying to make friends...lol.  Right now most of the kids hate me because I'm a "criminal", and they're scared of me or whatever.  I'm making progress though.  On BoTW I'm closer to finishing the game, and I finally obtained the Master Sword.  I was so proud of myself when I found it.  I actually got lost looking for the Lost Woods which was kind of funny.  On Uncharted 4 I'm driving a 4 wheeler through Madagascar which is pretty fun, and I get to kill bad guys which is always fun.  

My sister got a new puppy.  Her name is Sky, and she has really pretty blue eyes.  She's a white husky, and I believe she was rescued from a litter of puppies that were being neglected.  My sister is nursing her back to health, and she's still trying to get used to her new surroundings right now.  She brought her over our house the other day.  Apparently she loves my mom, and my mom basically held her like a baby...lol.  She's sort of shy, and still acts scared of people right now.  She likes to hide under the couch, but when my mom called her she came right out.  So she really likes my mom...lol.  

That's all for now.  

Persona 5

I bought a copy of Persona 5 on Monday when mom, and I went to the store.  I have to say I"m enjoying it so far.  I feel like a need a break from Breath of the Wild since I'm close to finishing it.  For those of you who aren't familiar with the game series here's a trailer of the game.  The opening animation is really gorgeous, and I love the motion graphics they used for the text.  The music is superb, and really fits the feel of the game.  So far I like the fighting system.  I do want to check out some of the older Persona games whenever I get the chance to.  Also Sakura-san is a complete jackass..lol.  I just thought it rant about that haha. 


I've also been playing Mario Kart 8 deluxe.  I realized I couldn't really play it in handheld mode for long periods of time because it was slighly uncomfortable.  That aside I'm really enjoying it though.

     Yesterday evening when I was driving home from work I noticed a silver BMW that was driving like an idiot, and tailgating this truck.  I didn't think too much of it since they weren't in my lane.  After a while I glanced over where they were driving and all of a sudden I noticed smoke coming out the bottom of their car.  Then their car started spinning out of control, and and myself along with most of the cars on that part of the highway stopped when they noticed the car loosing control.  They crossed four lanes of traffic still spinning, and I was grateful I stopped because if I hadn't they would have ran right into me.  They finally landed in the grassy area just off the highway, and was able to halt the car without crashing into anyone miraculously.  

     I must mention that it was incredibly windy that evening, but I'm not sure it was the wind that caused that to happen.  Needless to say I'm glad no one was hurt, and they didn't hit anyone.  I think some people stopped to see if they were okay.  No more brushes with death anymore please...  My anxiety ridden self would probably have a stroke if I had another accident.  D:

 This song came on while I was at work today, and I forgot how much I loved it!  The Sisters of Mercy were pretty awesome back in their heyday.  And this song is a legit jam.  


illusion_is_mine: (Haikyuu!! - Hinata)
 So this will be a short update of what's been going on with me lately.
  • My aunt left for Afghanistan last Friday.  Right now she's on the military base in El Paso so she hasn't left the country yet. She sent a group text to my sister, my mom, and a few other family members this morning saying that she wanted to come home, and that she didn't qualify for training.  She said things are really hectic on the military base with everything that's been happening, and that she doesn't want to go.  My sister and my cousin are talking about driving to El Paso to pick her up.  I do hope she can come home.  I was really worried when she mentioned where she would be going.  She sounds like she's trying to come back home so I'm glad that she probably won't be going to Afghanistan.  
  • I took advantage of the flash sale at the Playstation Store had over the weekend.  I ended up buying The Last of Us (Remastered), Dishonored (Definitive edition), and Wild Arms 3.  I also bought Blaster Master 0 for my Nintendo Switch.  I really love The Last of Us, Wild Arms 3, and Blaster Master 0 so far.  I'm also still playing Breath of the Wild, but I'm taking my time and just exploring stuff.
  • I watched One Punch Man, and Ranma 1/2 a bit yesterday.  I've been behind on anime so I enjoyed that quite a bit.  Ranma always cracked me up with how much trouble he would get himself into, or make Akane super pissed at him.  
  • As for music I've been listening to lots of Chelsea Wolfe lately.  If you haven't heard of her she's probably one of my favorite newer artists out right now.  I love how dark her music is, and the ambiance of it.  I think the guitar pedals add a nice effect to her overall sound.  Here's a video of her performing one of her songs off her newer album "Abyss" called "Survive".  You said you won't fall apart... )

illusion_is_mine: (SOM: Patricia Morrison)
 I couldn't remember if I posted about this band before, but Oceans of Slumber has become a favorite of mine ever since I heard this song, and saw them do a great cover of a Candlemass song.  They sound a lot like The Gathering meets Lacuna Coil so it's got a nice vibe to it.  I'm a sucker for really good Doom Metal, and Gothic Metal so of course I love it.  Enjoy. :)


illusion_is_mine: (DM: Dave Gahan)
 This week was very exhausting for me.  Luckily I didn't push myself too much, and ended up resting a lot yesterday when I got home from work.  I also played a lot of Breath of the Wild, and got a few Shrines out of the way.  I'll just update with bullet points to make things easier.  
  • I was initially going to practice guitar yesterday after I got home, but I was so tired I just crashed.  I had a few ideas for some songs I've been trying to learn that I wanted to try out.  I'll probably practice today sometime.  
  • The pharmacy that I get my prescriptions at keeps messing up my prescriptions, and didn't have mine ready yesterday despite it being on automatic refill.  My mom also was waiting on medication that they didn't have filled, and she informed them that I can't miss my medication because anti-depressants, and all that.  Needless to say I might be changing pharmacy's very soon.  I'm just tired of them always screwing up all the time.  
  • Surprisingly enough my wisdom tooth just stopped hurting today.  My guess is that it was trying to grow in, and that's why I was experiencing the intense pain.  I'm still going to make the appointment because I want it out, but I'm glad it finally stopped bothering me.  I can eat cookies again xD!
  • I woke up at 4am this morning, and decided to just play Zelda lmao.  I did accomplish a few things so I'm glad.  I still need to start on Chrono Trigger since I finally got my physical copy, and continue with Horizon Zero Dawn, and Fallout 4.  Basically I have my word cut out for me finishing any of these games.  2017 why do you keep releasing really great games this year!?!?  I need to finish the games I have.  I do want to check out Persona 5, but not until I finish at least one the games I'm already playing (which prob won't be Fallout 4 because that game is impossible to finish.) 
  • I've been binge watching a show on Netflix called "13 Reason's why", and I'm almost done with it.  I really feel bad for the girl in that story, and everything she went through.  Shows about suicide hit close to home for me because I was suicidal at one point.  I never attempted it or anything, but I get in really dark places in my head sometimes, and I have to get myself out of that way of thinking.  
  • I've been listening to a lot of music lately.  Mainly The Novembers, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Draconian, Goatbed, Pat Benatar, Balance and Composure, Title Fight, Sukekiyo, Ogre you Asshole, Nujabes, Chelsea Wolfe, Code Orange, Public Image ltd, and Plastic Tree.  Here's a song by a band I've been listening to called The Fin. from Japan.  They have a sort of lo-fi nostalgic feel to their music that I like.  This video is really nice too. :)Read more... )

 So last week mom, and I went to Walmart to get a few things.  I will point out that I wasn't intending to buy a Nintendo Switch, but after going to the game section and realizing they only had 2 consoles, and they had Zelda I could not pass it up.  I was shocked that they even had it in the store since it's been sold out everywhere.  Anyway when I got it home I played it most of the day.  Last night I played Zelda till 3am trying to get those damn spirit orbs..lmao.  I did complete that quest though, and now I'm just exploring until I have to deal with Calamity Ganon.  It's such a fun game!  It's probably one of my favorite games of this year next to Horizon Zero Dawn.  

Anyway here's a pic of my console still in the box along with BoTW.  


My family finally realizes how into gaming I am now that I bought a Switch.  My sister made the comment "You and those video games" and shook her head.  

As for other things I've been having issues with my Wisdom Tooth lately.  It's been very sore for a couple of days, and I'm concluding that I'll probably have to go to the dentist and get it pulled.  I HATE going to the dentist, but my tooth has been bothering me nonstop so I'm going to go.  It's only one tooth, but that's enough to drive me nuts so I figured it needs to be taken care of.  

Well that's it for now.  I hope everyone has a great week. :)

illusion_is_mine: (Zelda)
 This week was exhausting for me.  I swear everyday I came home from work I went straight to sleep.  I'm not sure why I've been so tired, but today I'm feeling a bit better and less tired.  I think it was because this weekend we had that birthday dinner for my mom, and I ended up having to drive.  If there's one thing you should know about me it's that driving stresses me out a bit.  We ended up having to sit in traffic which was fine.  Apparently an SUV had turned over, and it looked like a bad accident.  I do hope that the people were okay.  I had a hard time finding the restaurant because they'd changed a lot of things since I'd been to that part of town.  I finally saw the sign while we were driving around, and proceeded to park.  After I parked someone pulled up right next to me giving me no time to react.  I was frustrated after that, but my mom told me later that the reason I had trouble parking was because there was a black truck already parked to my right that was parked wrong, and all over the line.  People here drive like idiots I swear.  That aside we had a great time at the restaurant for my mom's birthday. 

Other than that I did some drawing early yesterday morning, and it felt good.  I might post some of my doodles, or random drawings sometime whenever I get the chance to scan them.  

Oh and I got my passport in the mail for my trip.  I'm super exited about going to Panama now!  It's going to be fun.  :)

Also I've been listening to more music lately.  I got my spotify account back so now I can listen to new albums whenever they come on streaming.  I read somewhere that Tool was going to start putting there music on streaming services.  That's super awesome!  There are a few albums, and EP's of there's that I haven't listened to that I want to hear.  So I'm looking forward to that.  As always been listening to a lot of Deftones, and also Type O Negative, Paradise Lost, and some Lacuna Coil.  Speaking of LC they just put out a new video for one of my favorite tracks off their new album.  I like the video a lot.  They've been doing a lot of darker concepts with the newer album, and I like it a lot.  Also can Cristina get any more attractive?  I swear...that woman is so gorgeous.  Speaking of that my friend swears that I have a thing for Italian women...lol.  I never thought about it, but she could be on to something. ;)

Someone asked to see my gaming setup so here are some pictures.  gaming setup pics )

illusion_is_mine: (Haikyuu!! - Hinata)
 I know it's been a while since I've  posted, but I'll update today with bullet points cause it's easier!  
  • My mom's birthday is friday, and my niece is planing a surprise party at a resturant called Bone Daddy's.  Now I asked my coworker about the place, and it turns out it similar to hooters?  I'm not sure why she picked that place...lmao.  Either way I get to see hot women walking around serving food so I'm definitely not opposed to it xD!   
  • My parents and I finally sent off for our passports, and we should be getting them in about a month.  I'm getting really excited about the Panama trip you guys!  It's coming up rather quickly.
  • I've been playing Xenoblade Chronicles, which is fun as hell.  I love the fighting system in that game.  I've also been playing Fallout 4, and I'm really enjoying that one a lot.  I found this excellent video by The Game Theorist where he does an interesting analysis of what happened to the people after the nuclear fallout.  
  • Spring is finally here!  I've had to take out my shorts, and capri pants because as you know the heat in Texas can be brutal.  It's mostly been comfortable t-shirts, and capris for me these days.
  • That strange girl that was sort of following me around at work hit on my sister when they went to a club.  I had to laugh when my mom told me because it was just predictable.  I mean I figured she wouldn't hit on her boss, but apparently she has no common sense at all whatsoever. 
  • I decided to get my mom a nice birthday card, and some money for her birthday.  She's been complaining about being broke so I figured money would be a great gift..lol.
  • My allergies have been kicking my ass, and I think the fact that spring is right around the corner isn't helping at all. :( 
  • That's all for now. :D

 So this week was okay.  This past Saturday my friend Elisabeth, and I went to the movies to see Logan.  It turned out to be really good!   I was really impressed with the plot, and the acting of the girl who played is daughter.  Word of warning if you're going to see this movie it gets very emotional towards the end.  In marvel fashion people stayed after the credits only to realize that there was no extra footage after the movie ended lol.  During the previews they showed a preview for a movie called "The Circle."  The plot seems super interesting, and totally up my ally since I tend to like dystopian type plots.  After that we grabbed a bite to eat, and we decided to call it a night.  

As for music I've been listening to the "Self Titled" Deftones album a lot lately.  I really dig the first track off that album a lot.  Their music always makes me wish I had a 7 string guitar.  I love their overall sound a lot.  I've also been listening to My Dying Bride, and a little bit of K-pop here and there because it keeps me awake at work.  

As for gaming I just recently purchased the HD Remaster of the first Resident Evil game, Mortal Kombat XL, and Battlefield 4.  I've been enjoying all of them so far.  Resident Evil looks really good remastered, and I've been working my way through the mansion pretty easily as Jill.  The first time I played it I played it as Chris, and failed miserably because he doesn't get nearly advantages as Jill does initially at the start of the game.  As for Mortal Kombat XL I was pleased that I still remembered a lot of the characters combos from the older games.  The fatalities are a lot easier on the newer game which sort of makes me sad, but it's not a huge issue.  The game is really gorey, but of course that doesn't bother me in the slightest.  I like the single player content for this game a lot more than Street Fighter V.  Capcom could take a lesson from this game on how to make decent single player content for Street Fighter in the future.  

Also I finally managed to get a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles for the Wii!  It's arriving today in the mail so I'm looking forward to it. :D

As for books I have kindle unlimited for 60 days so I've been taking advantage of that.  Right now I'm still reading "Ash" by Malinda Lo, Valis by Philip Dick, "Between Heaven and Hell" by David Burnett, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
