So today I finally dual booted my mac— nominally because I need to make an Access database by the end of the month and would prefer to be able to do it whenever the fuck my fancy is struck, but mostly because I feel a need to play around in Windows on my own machine. Success! Tablet software up next…
Since my priorities are obviously in order, I started playing Yume Nikki about 4 hours ago. Unforch I’ve already had the ending spoiled for me when I went looking for the number of effects I need to collect (if you can call really call it spoilage…it’s kind of easy to guess and the ending isn’t really the point anyway, but I wanted to get there and see for myself….T_T)
Over all, it’s an enjoyable (read: trippy, disturbing, bleak, depressing, uncomfortable) experience though I think I kind of built it up while I was waiting. I think my eyes are bleeding. Also, I’m excited to hear they just announced a manga? I hope there’s an anime someday soon and the dream worlds are designed by Inu Curry. Please? Please.
So far today, I woke up at 1 o’clock, hundred-percented three quizzes for my bullcrap online class and plan to get through at least 5 more (8 weeks behind, thank you tax season. At least it’s mostly fluff. Did I mention computers are your future?), ate an acai bowl and took a shower with weasels.
I’m hoping to get a run in later, revive some sourdough starter I got in the mail for free (lol), get my computer ready to dual-boot (finally!! Yume Nikki and some proper tablet drawing shizz. Oh, and Access for my bullcrap class. Yay.) and maybe dye my pubes blue. Still need to plan for Oktavia (if I’m even going to do it, I mean it’s not like I’m competing or performing or anything or would even know how to? Except now the lovely wants me to enter Level-Up’s cosplay contest the weekend after…?). ….maybe beat Infinite and either start Dishonored or re-level on Borderlands 2 (my gunzerker was not actually satisfactory at least in comparison to lovely’s uber-cheaty mechromancer, I might give in and play the siren or assassin because no one could replace Roland in my heart WTF?).
Livin the good life.
I actually remembered that Fanime is next month, so I actually signed up to register and it’s still cheap and not sold out and oh my science. I’M ACTUALLY GOING THIS YEAR I’VE NEVER BEEN BEFORE BECAUSE I’M ALWAYS POOR OR WORKING OR PRETENDING I DON’T LIKE THE THINGS I LIKE.
Then I realized, also BayCon. I have friends at both.
SHOULD I BUY BOTH MEMS SINCE IT’S RELATIVELY AFFORDABLE FOR LIKE FIVE DAYS OF UTTER NERDERY? IS THAT EVEN LEGAL? I AM DRUNK WITH POWER.
Also, shit. Better get on my Chitose cosplay. Or something a little more elaborate? Sayaka the Baka? A Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei character OP style (i.e. tied up with my name over my face)? Something from Mononoke/Ayakashi? Aaaaaghhhhhhhhhhh. And I have to remember, Clockwork Alchemy is also a thing that exists. Post-tax season me is already stirring with dreams of overly ambitious costuming projects. And photos to submit to Cosplay Deviants, because I am still foolishly fascinated by the idea of getting into the nekkid girl business even if I’m only a part-time girl.
So on the one hand, I’m having a hell of a time getting my work computer to run my tax software (which is why I’m on Tumblr at work, again), I’m four weeks behind on my required MS Office suite class (yes, my major requires me to dick around in word and excel for 16 weeks. It’s excrutiating. The name of our textbook is “Computers are Your Future”….I shit you not.), since being sick I’ve gone down a cup size (does not bode well for jumping into the nekkid girl business…and neither does my inability to stop inhaling *all the foods* since I got my sense of taste back x_x) and lost my place in my zombie 5k trainer, and I’m in the stressiest bit of my work year and its made me a spotty grump who has yelling matches with their loveliest love pretty much every morning. On the other, I’ve had a couple hours to play Bioshock Infinite every night, and while I’m frustratingly proficient at it (No really, where is the challenge?) I’m not actually disappointed (setting is very important for Gingers, that’s why Bioshock is a big deal to me in the first place) and the key I got with my preorder is sweet (and the buttons that got thrown in because when the cashier asked me how big a fan I am I just spread my arms as wide as they would go and made big liquid puppy eyes.) I just found out my accounting homework isn’t due for another week (suprise spring break), I have new glass tail spirals that glow in the dark and stretching was easy, bodyartforms gave me 4 extra free sawblade rings along with the 8 I actually asked for (they are loves.), I’m getting awesome leggings in the mail shortly (and possibly boots and toys, I’m letting myself spend some money.), since I’ve been working after hours I can go to the office in flipflops and furry horned beast hat over my shower cap because I’m dying my hair and Death Guild XX hoodie with nothing underneath because I’m lazy as fuck, and tomorrow might actually be fun (Hmmmm…goth easter? Ishtar? Eostre? Heathens? Mrow? :3).
I’d like to take a moment to address the fact that I threw almond milk, coconut milk, coconut sugar, nutmeg and chia seeds in a mason jar, stashed it in the fridge, went out for a midnight run and came back to a delicious tapioca pudding-like substance that is filling and pretty ok for my body maybe even good for my brains. FUCKING MAGICAL.
Also, I’m playing the Zombies, Run 5k trainer and using the Pokéwalker my boyfriend got today (I am bad with feeling pressured and receiving things from s.o.’s because I am picky and no one’s ever really gotten me a truly personal gift or surprised me with anything cool or romantic BUT this was a great idea especially after he said “it’s not for you, it’s for me— I just want you to share the experience” heh…confession time…I never played any of the games just the cards…#-_-# late bloomer. Anyway, I’m enjoying Soul Silver, especially naming things XD)…multitasking like nobody’s business. And glow sticks, kitty ear hoodie and Viking socks. I think I am, literally, the goofiest runner of all time. Glow runs and paint runs and shit like that were engineered for people like me and you better believe I intend to do one someday soon. Lawl.
