But I’ll grind something out. The question is where to start.
Let’s try my recent employment status. I call up that Monday to make sure things are going to be all happy happy. Yeah. They aparently filled my training class because I didn’t get back to them fast enough. They called me at 4:00 PM the Friday to tell me about the whole change that I’m going to interview and do a different job. Let’s be honest people. That is not reasonable enough time to do what they ask. So, in a nutshell, they interviewed me, offered me a position, did something retarded and then retracted their offer. Great. Went to ITT, talked it over with them and we’re figuring it out from there. I think I have an idea on my next job though, but I said to myself that if I can’t get a job by the end of the month I’m going back to working for FedEX untill something better comes along.
Next is school. For the next three or four weeks I think I’m going to be the only person in my C++ class while someone takes some time in the mental hospital and the other one just…well…hasn’t shown up in a while. If I’m lucky, one on one time with the instructor could yield me learning a great deal of extra stuff (get your head out of the gutter mate, that’s not what I meant). My grades are PHENOMENALÂ this quarter. Seriously good stuff.
For the hell of it, let me comment on my sister. Last Monday she quit her job, citing not getting enough hours as a manager and now seems to be accelerating plans to move away from Utica; to Syracuse no less. Damnit Dee, first rule about work. Don’t quit the job you have untill you have another one lined up. Second, don’t just go out and quit your job when you’re in serious debt. Finaly, don’t go chasing another boyfriend and move all the way out here for him. I know your track record. This won’t work.
I recently bought a new shelving unit for the apartment. I really needed the space for my now growing anime collection. It’s gawking how big it is now. Recent purchases include Girls Bravo 3-6, Ai Yori Aoshi, Chobits, Nadesico (all of it), Negima 1-4, Digi Charat, Perfect Blue, Moon Phase 1-2,Â Elfen Lied and to top it off all 18 disks of Cardcaptor Sakura. I’ll post a photo when I get a camera sometime.
I played and finished Twilight Princess for the Wii. One thing I loved about it was the fact that you used the remote for aiming projectiles. This allowed for run and gun strategies to suceed more often where Z targeting was not an option. The control style was incredibly slick. Using the remote and nunchuck to do the work was genius. Though, I really wanted to see the usual left-handed link, I still say I enjoyed the game. The story was good, controls were beautiful, gameplay was fun and exciting and a lot of situations really made me think. That being said, the epiologe was the only thing that kinda bothered me. The game just kinda…stops. No real afterÂ information about certain characters and where they go from there, only a few clips of random places that seem back in order. Though, I will say a couple things, one being Princess Zelda. Sure, Wii may not have the graphics of the PS3 (which I still think is a piece of propriatary junk, I’m using it for comparison here), but HOT DAMN she’s a pretty girl. If you’ve got Wii hardware and can convey that image so well, it truely means that the seventh-generation console war is not about image quality, but the games. Also on this note, Wii sports is damned addicting. I play it at least one half-hour a day, sometimes more. Good exersize, promotes a steady hand, timing skills and above all else, physical health. Boxing will make you sweat. TennisÂ will test your endurance in the higher levels. Golf will teach not to overkill. Overall, this is a great console.
Speaking of Video Games, anyone heard of a place called FFXIclopedia? If you read this blog, this may end up being a yes. But anyway, for some retarded reason, someone named Merin decided to tear open an old wound and attempt to once again disprove (to no avail in my or anyone I know’sÂ mind). Yeah. And Ganiman decided to get in on the fight. Why? He hates me. No reason other than that. He, and many others,Â act likeÂ children behind my back.Â Why? I have different thoughts about the game than he does. I like to play the game my way. He thinks it’s wrong. So he goes ahead and bans me from editing and from accessing the forums like a baby. Someone call the Whammbulance. Please. It’s a damned video game. So what were we fighting about? Maat again. Beaten by Melee by me yet these people don’t belive it worth shit. Probably because they can’t duplicate what I did. Or something. I really don’t have an answer to that. But with some help, I should be able to block image access so FFXIclopedia can’t show my Avy or Sig anymore.
I think this apartment complex has a serious sex problem. My old next-door neighboor kept me up at all hours with arguing and moaning. Now the guy upstairs is doing someone and he’s fucking loud. Granted, I am used to a woman’s moan and cry, I watch enough Hentai that I’d be damned used to it by now, but a man just creeps me the hell out. IÂ had a hardÂ time sleeping the other night because of this.Â “I’m gonna cum!” Where’s a knife? I want to cut out my ear drums so I never have to hear another man yell that.
I think I’ll top this off finaly with the big bad news. V2’s motherboard is shot. As in blown capacitors shot. Crusty liquid on the tops, freezing problems, failure to start, everything. *Sniff* I took out the board, packaged it up and sent it back for replacement. I can’t keep going without my bigger toy. On a somewhat related note, the Dual 450MHz machine I have finaly is dualing. Before it would just recognize both CPUs but only ever use one. The performance increase is hard to notice offhand,Â but it’s certainly there. In a realistic example, the PlayOnline client, which usualy requires a 800MHz CPU to run normaly doesn’t seem to have an issue running on this machine. Granted I can’t play FFXI with it (It’s an 11GBs game, there’s not enough HD space left on the machine, plus I think it would lag badly), but I can at least check my mail and do messaging with XI players who don’t use IM clients.
Whew. I guess I had a lot to say this time around. Well, onto my next project.
