Sorry for the delay in posting again, I've been super duper busy! I spend a ton of time at the LAN center now. I've made a lot of friends there, and it's fun just hanging out and playing whatever. Lately I've been playing a lot of League of Legends! Awesome game. I'm still not that good at it, but I'm slowly learning!

So I guess I haven't posted since I went on my trip. I had a great time, and it was nice to see old friends and family again. I need to take trips more often! While I was there, I bought an awesome Sonic robe on clearance for super cheap, and a Scott Pilgrim doll on clearance as well!

A couple weeks ago, I finally finished playing all the way through Shatter. The amazing thing, though, is that I finished the entire game without using a continue! I never thought I'd be able to get that achievement, but I did somehow. I was playing at the LAN center, and since the computer I was on has a second monitor on the wall that everyone can see, a big group was watching me play. It was awesome. I more than tripled my old high score!

There's another game I've been playing that I finished a few days ago, and that one is Ghost Trick. It's a fantastic game for DS, and if you're a fan of the Phoenix Wright series, I think you'll like this one (and even if you're not, play it anyway!). It's made by the same team, and it has a similar feel to those games in the story and music departments. The gameplay, however, is completely different (and quite unique!). Basically, you play as a ghost, and you have to possess and manipulate inanimate objects in order to save people from dying. There's a lot more to the game than that, but that's what the majority of the core gameplay is like. One other thing to note about the game: BEAUTIFUL ANIMATION! Oh gosh is it amazing. I'm a huge fan of animation, and stuff this impressive really blows me away. It's so smooth! I can only find one example of it online:
Do not view this with Google Chrome. It screws up gifs and makes them slow. Use another browser, it's worth it!

I rewatched the movie Stardust the other day. I hadn't seen it since it was in theaters, and I had forgotten what a great movie it is! If you've never seen it, I definitely recommend it. Here's a trailer:

The movie apparently did really poorly at the box office, due to bad marketing. It needs more love.

I think I had more to say, but I'm too tired to remember right now. I'll do another post soon. Also, big announcement is almost ready! Prepare for it! Oh yeah, I guess I need a new poll. I'll do that tomorrow.

Down South

I took a trip down to my home town to visit friends and family for the next few days. I just hit the road this evening, and arrived not long ago. The trip was a pretty spur of the moment idea. Since I had three days off in a row this week, I decided to just take a trip! Now, it turns out I have Monday off as well, so I'm actually taking FOUR days off in a row! I'm hoping to have a nice visit.

It felt really weird traveling without Puckie. :(

And now for a photo of our super creepy Mario mascot costume we have at work.

Poll poll poll

My last poll's results are pretty interesting to me. So Sonic came in third! Poor Sonic, overshadowed by his friends. Knuckles won the poll, which I'm not surprised about. He is a pretty rad echidna dude. Keep in mind that I am only a fan of classic Sonic, and I don't like any of the newer games. I like Sonic the best, but Knuckles is a close second! I even made a Knuckles costume when I was younger, which I'm sure a lot of you have seen already. Here it is, for the ones who haven't:

I'm 16 here. This costume has been in storage for years, I should take it out one of these days!

Alright, new poll time!

Monkey face

Last couple days have been busy for me! On Sunday evening, I went to my friend's house for a Chinese New Year party. The only thing is, by the time we got there, the party was mostly over! The food had all been eaten and everything, so....we ended up making Thai food instead, hehe. I ended up sleeping over since his house is pretty far away.

The next day, I spent the entire day at the LAN center. I was sitting behind the counter, so it felt like I was working there, hehe. I'll probably be working there soon. It was a fun day! Mainly just chit-chatted and watched funny videos with my friends, and I played a few games as well.

I just ordered some RAM for my PC build. Newegg has a pretty nice deal right now, $15 off the RAM I had picked out. I'm glad I finally ordered another component for my future PC. I've just been patiently waiting for the parts to go on sale and such. Trying to save as much money as possible. Here's the deal, if anyone is interested:

And now for a photo of my dad and I from when I was 8. I used to be a blonde.
