Excitement ~!

I recently picked up Queen’s Crown yesterday afternoon. And, the story reminds me of the short RPG I made in RPG maker back in high school named Kitty Kross. It’s pretty interesting to say the least. At first I bought the lite version, because I normally test games out if they interest me. Most games don’t. But, this one did. I played it for a few hours straight.

Anyway, it gives me the idea to play Terraria again, using McTwisp possibly to create the [Artemis Kingdom]. This will be fun. I haven’t played Terraria since the last update came out (1.0.6.1) came out. But, I’m excited to start this.

Galleria’s Grand Reopening

Yesterday was awesome. After school my mom and I headed over to the Galleria Mall in Roseville. It was really busy. Now, for those who don’t know there was a fire there around mid-late October last year. And, a wing of the mall got shut down. Anyway, it reopened yesterday.  And, I went to see what new stores have been added, and what stores been taken away.

Sanrio had actually been added. It closed down sometime before the fire and with this grand reopening there is now a Sanrio Express there, which I’m happy about. I haven’t been to a Sanrio in years.  I bought a MyMelody doll there. She’s sitting on my nightstand for now. When I clean my desk, sometime this weekend; I’ll put her there along with a penguin from Madagascar, the Mad Hatter and Yokomon.

The place that I’m mostly impressed with is the Disney Store. It looks better than it did a year ago… glass walls and all. And, they have play things kids… and even adults can go into. I actually bought a Nala (from Lion King) doll from there too. I’m thinking of buying Simba as well when I get enough money.

…There was also music playing and people singing in front of JCPennys and Macy’s…

I called my mom after I was done shopping and tired from all that walking… and I am still tired. It didn’t help that I was wearing boots. It had rained earlier in the day so I took precautions to make myself warm, because of it. The sun came out at noon and stayed out to play for the rest of the day.

Summer Living

I love how the weather is getting colder. It’s fall, and I know I haven’t updated this blog in a LONG time. But, new thing, and exciting things are happening. Well… not really. I got a few new games this summer: Recetear, Chantelise, and Dungeons of Dredmore to name a few. School started up at the end of August, and when that started up I started playing Digimon Masters Online. Heh. So I guess you can say I’m a gamer girl. I mean, I have already admitted to a few of my friends that I’m indeed a nerd.

I also picked up Harvest Moon Tale of Two Towns, and Rune Factory 3 last month.

Anyway, I had my first computer test yesterday. I think I did alright on it. I am not sure if I did well on the charts though, because I was so unsure of what to do. It’s just been a busy few months. I mean, I have to do well in school this semester. I’m not all too worried about my business class, but CIS, that’s another story. In fact I should be doing homework right now instead of typing up this blog, but I want to have breakfast first before homework.. Especially because I’m hungry.

Plus, I’m excited to go out to Galleria Mall once it opens the wing that brunt down last year. IT opens tomorrow. Eeee~!

…And, the microwave is beeping at me… foods ready~!

Summer’s Here!

And, you know what that means– since school’s out, and I am currently jobless. No? Well, I turn to Video Games. That’s right I have nothing better to do. I should be working on my own projects, but alas my mind is totally blank on what to work on. I know, I scrapped the project that I was working on last summer because it somehow tied into the pain and hurt that came around last year. But, whatever. I have ideas in my head, but somehow my mind becomes blank when I want to write them into a full context story. Sucks, I know.

As of late, I’ve been playing Portal 2, and Terraria. Both games are fun to say the least.

Portal 2 uses brain power to solve puzzles, and I just realized I’ve never documented playing the original Portal. How very interesting. Well, I bought it in the beginning of the year (for $30 at Fry’s Electronics) and beat it back in April. I then decided to buy Portal 2 some odd weeks ago, and have been playing it off and on.

Terraria, on the other hand; is somewhat like MineCraft (which I’ve played, didn’t really like it since it focuses mostly on building). And, Terraria is more of an action type rpg, with the aspects of building in it as well. And, I guess Terraria has got a grasp on me, because it has the little element called Action-RPG.

Ergh.

A lot has time passed since I updated last. Ugh. It’s the final stretch of school for me. I’ve been helping my boyfriend with his game and working on a small writing project here and there. I’ve been feeling more tired than I should be over the past few weeks, well I understand why I’m tired today I was up at five am or so. I’m so not liking the medication I HAVE to be on. I have to rest for one hour per day just because of it.

It’s just two more days of school and then all this torture ends. I’ve been busy trying to pass my classes Accounting 09 (Federal Accounting) and CiS50 (Intro to Windows… or something). I know I’ll pass 50, but Accounting, I highly doubt it. It’s the hardest class I have taken in awhile.  I’m inspired to write at the moment then drawing. I kind of want to write a Visual Novel on Renpy’s Engine. I’ve started a story too, but haven’t had time to work on it, since finals have come and gone. Plus, I still have another final on Thursday to do.

Other than that, my life’s been a little hectic. We had a death in the family just recently. I’m coping alright, I guess. It was scary the first couple of nights because I could feel his presence in the room I was staying in. It freaked me out so much that I had to sleep with my parents. If i didn’t believe in ghost before, I do now. Especially since I saw something move in my computer screen (it was just air). Then felt something move and was watching me. But, nothing was there…

Feelings…

I went to the dentist today for a check up today. I knew for awhile that my teeth aren’t really prefect. But, what’s prefect? No one is prefect. Apparently, there is suppose to be work done on my mouth which would end up being expensive. Ugh. I do not have much money. If I did then I would have got it done today– or already. But, who wants to sit in a chair for half a day– getting fillings and teeth cleaned?

I also have a feeling that I am not going to be passing Accounting 09 this term. I’m apparently failing the class. So, that’s another another semester at Sierra to add to my belt. It sucks really. I want this to be over with, although in retrospect I already know what I’d miss. I’d miss those little concert events. My favorite being Earth Day.I went to one this week, well– it was a benefit concert for building a school in Tanzania. .. for girls. Those poor girls. I know I wish I could do more, yet it feels good to donate to an awesome cause.

And, then everything in Japan… It never stops.

I’ve taken up drawing again. I want to do something more with that, but I don’t know. I do have a writing project that I am working on. I might abandon it though because I wrote myself into a wall. I don’t know we will see. There has to be something more that I can do with it. I’ll see after I finish some of my homework.

Reminiscing

The last two days have been excruciating. My CIS 50 teacher had me go through a run around, on a bad day. Yesterday, I thought I could take the test. And, apparently had to run around the campus trying to figure out what to do. I couldn’t take the test as planned. Instead I had to e-mail the teacher (which I ended up doing twice), and running around a whole lot.

I’ve done this before… about a year ago. I signed in for a test and found out my Nutrition teacher did not put the test in the testing center (she had forgotten). I had to go between the testing center a few times. I hated that especially when I was interrupted the test takers. Yet, in retrospect; I remember making contact with my eyes on Chris (who ironicly moved across the classroom to sit by me).

This class will be loads of fun. It made me miss spending time with my family already (even though I know I wouldn’t spend time with them). I was kind of looking forward to going down there, but was a bit skeptical because of that whole mess I went through yesterday. The mess lead me to sleeping early because of this headache that wouldn’t stop.

Para… Activities..

Chris and I had celebrated Valentines Day yesterday. We have lots of fun, but it rain did a lot. The Friday before last I bought him a box of chocolates, and a card. I like the card because what it said it was true. It said something along the lines that the only thing I needed was him. It was a hard time picking out a restaurant because he kept wanting to go to Red Robin. I want to go someplace different but I ended up agreeing with him because we made a deal that this would be last time we go there.

On Thursday of last week, I didn’t want to go to school because of the heavy rain. Yet, to my surprise the teacher had e-mailed everyone in the class and said class was canceled. So, I spent the day making character profiles for a brand-new project. Yeah. I’m still having trouble writing something legit. *Sigh* I wish I could write something that I’m happy with. Just one thing… Today, I worked on my accounting test. It is the second test of the semester. I didn’t do well on the first test, but I’m glad these test are only chapter tests. That means there’s no midterm nor final. Yet their will be quizzes a semester.

*EDIT* I just realized that I named this post, ” Para Activities” because I just finished watching Paranormal Activity 2″. The reason that I love watching it is because Chris pointed something out. Katie can be seen at the end of the movie before the demon kills Dan and his wife. Yet, I didn’t catch any of this the first time I watched it. And in the second time. Oh well…

Life and School

This past weekend has been somewhat eventful. Well, really it started before the weekend. My dad ordered three brand new house phones because our old one(s) have stopped working. Well, they work up tll a point. And, that point is answering the phone, so I guess it doesn’t really work.

Anyway, during the past weekend we shopped for a laptop (a replacement for my broken one).  We ended up getting a HP laptop, which has a fingerprint reader. I’ve registered my fingerprint, but I still am not sure how to use it. My mom and I also went around shopping for a stereo to replace the one she sent to Philippines. We didn’t end up buying one though. I ended up buying a Creative Zen X-Fi2 MP3 player. Even though it’s not wifi (or a phone) I still love it.

I did something spontaneous as well on Saturday. I went to the barbershop and got a hair cut. My hair is now shoulder length. I like it actually, it just get some getting used to, especially  since my hair is somewhat wild. On another note I bought a few video games. I also now have a video game blog named Nila Ranch Gaming.  I am looking forward to playing Resident Evil REmake and Resident Evil Code Veronica.

Oh! And, school… school’s school… All I have to do is focus on Federal Income Tax (Accounting 09), and what a horrible job I’m doing at that. I just spent most of this afternoon playing catch up on homework… and we’re getting our second take home test tomorrow. That’s awful. At least there is no school on Monday because of President’s Day.
