illusion_is_mine: (FFXV: Noctis)
 This past week was exhausting but I got through it.  It wasn't so much anything happened really, but that I'd been sick earlier this week so I had to recover.  I have a slight sinus headache today, but I did take something for it.  I'll probably rest later to fully get rid of this annoying headache.

As for other things I've been looking for a chair for my room.  Something that's comfortable that I can fold up and put away since my room is rather small.  The one I actually bought from Target looks something like this.  I haven't used it yet, but I'm mostly looking forward to using it for gaming.  I was sitting on my bed to play games, but I needed something to support my back a bit so I settled on this chair.  I'm going to use it tonight when I play FFXV, and a few other games that I've bought recently.  I also bought Resident Evil 4 which I've been wanting to check out for a while.  I've been a fan of the Resident Evil game franchise for a while now.  I would say ever since I played Resident Evil 2 on the Playstation when I was younger.  I also downloaded Fire Emblem for my android phone since it was free on the google play store.  I've been wanting to check that game out for a while now.  

Other than gaming I've been listening to music, and what not.  I've been sort of neglecting my guitar, but  I plan to fix that this week.  So far I've learned quite a few songs on guitar.  I just learned "Zombie" by The Cranberries, and "A Forest" by The Cure.  The Cure has honestly been my go to band for learning songs on guitar.  I really like their overall sound, and some of the first songs I learned were Cure songs.  I've also been listening to a little bit of K-pop, and Neo Soul type stuff.  My taste is all over the place depending on what mood I'm in.  My current favorites are Code Orange's "Forever" album, The Final Fantasy VII OST, "Peripheral Vision" by Turnover, "Ashes Against the Grain" by Agalloch, "The Sound of Perseverance" by Death, "A Kiss in the Dream House" by Siouxsie and the Banshees",  and "Coll:set" by D'espairsRay.  On a random note I noticed H&M has this Siouxsie shirt.  I was surprised that they had a Siouxsie shirt, but I guess they had a Joy Division shirt so it's not that surprising.  I kind of rolled my eyes at the holes in the shirt cause I guess they're trying to appeal to hipsters or something.  I always thought punk was about the whole DIY thing.  I mean I modified my own Siouxsie shirt, and the idea of buying a shirt with pre-existing holes has never been appealing to me.  If I want a certain look I figure I can do it myself.  But I guess today's youth lack that certain initiative that we had in the past.  

I'm still reading "Ash" by Malinda Lo, and it's getting interesting.  I've just gotten to a part where a major character was killed, and that made me a bit sad.  It happened pretty suddenly.  Either way the story is developing nicely.

I'm a 32 year old woman. I'm an artist, and I'm into the Gothic subculture. Things that I enjoy include but are not limited to 80's Music, Reading, Drawing, Animation, Playing bass guitar, Gothic rock, indie music, horror films, anime, comics, video games, and sci-fi novels. I don't know what I'd do without music, and art. I listen to Siouxsie and the Banshees way more than I should.
