Want an iPad from me?!

I already posted this on Facebook, but I'll mention it here as well for those who don't use Facebook.

So, any of you want a free iPad from me?! Help me win one so I can give it to one of you! My company is doing a little contest for us Play N Trade employees, where the person who gets the most referrals to this page will win an iPad! If I win the iPad, I'm gonna give it away in a little contest for you awesome people!

Here's what you do: first, click the image at the bottom of this post. Then, click either the "Enter to Win" link at the top, or the "Fill out your wishlist today!" link at the bottom. Complete the form and submit it, and that's it! You'll be entered to win a bunch of cool stuff from Play N Trade, plus the iPad from me if I win!

Make it happen, guys! This is totally for you!

Black Friday ended up being not so bad at all. It sucked getting there so early, especially since I barely got any sleep, but the work shift wasn't tedious or anything. It was pretty busy, but not even close to as busy as last year. I had an energy drink to help me get through the day, and I'm feeling pretty crappy now. Oh well!

Black Friday, ugh

Well, it's currently past 12 AM, the morning of Black Friday. I really need to be asleep right now, since I have to be at work at 7:30 AM, but I'm not tired at all. Really dreading the day. :\

I just need to keep reminding myself that this will be the last time I'll ever work Black Friday at a retail store!

I've still been working on getting my online store set up, and getting products made for it. It will be ready soon!

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. I had two dinners, one with family and one with friends, and they were both delicious.

Daily Skyrim Party! New poll

Lately, I've been going to my friend's house almost every day for Skyrim parties. Though I'm the only one here not actually playing the game (I'm usually playing League of Legends or working on stuff instead), everyone else has been. It's like a lan party for a single player game, which is a pretty silly concept, but it's been a lot of fun. We made delicious snacks last night, so it finally felt like a real party!

I made my awesome spam musubi, which is nori, rice, and a slice of turkey spam in the middle with teriyaki sauce and furikake seasoning on it. It's super delicious!

Sooooo good.
So, I decided to get rid of my chat room, since no one ever used it. If there's ever demand for another one in the future, I may make a new one. For now, though, I decided to replace that space with a little list of the games I'm currently playing. I'll continue to update and change that list as I finish and start new games.

I have a new poll, and it's a very important one for me. Since I'm currently in the process of creating an online store, I want to know what types of products you folks would be most interested in buying. I plan to make everything that's in the poll list, but it would be very helpful to know what appeals to you the most. I plan to have my store up and running very soon, and I'm continually working on products for it. My store will have an emphasis on gaming-related items and apparel, but I'll be making other types of things as well. Please leave a comment if there's anything I didn't mention in the poll that you'd like to see for sale!

Super late PC specs!

 I know you guys have been asking me about my PC specs for like a month now. Sorry for the delay! I kept forgetting because I'm derpy. These are my parts, complete with handy dandy links:

Case: Antec 300 Illusion
Motherboard: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
Processor: i5-2500k
Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Video card: GeForce GTX 570 Classified
Power supply: OCZ 750W
HDD #1 (SSD): Crucial M4 128GB
HDD#2: Hitachi Deskstar 2TB

I absolutely love my computer. So far, I haven't had a single issue with it. Getting it all together was a breeze, and it runs beautifully. Since I have Windows on my solid state drive, it boots up and shuts down in seconds! I also install my games and most used programs on that drive, so they run with the shortest load times possible. All games so far have been running effortlessly at max settings. Okay, I'll stop bragging now.

I plan to hold a little contest very soon. Keep an eye out for that!

JetBlue News

For those of you who keep up with my Facebook posts, I mentioned that my JetBlue interview had gone very well. It was quite a fun experience (despite having to fly all the way to New York), and the recruiters were all very nice. I felt confident that I did a great job and gave it my all. However, even though I know I did my best, I still didn't allow myself to get my hopes up too much for the job, in order to protect myself from being hurt if it didn't work out. That ended up being for the best, because I just got the email yesterday that I was not chosen. The email basically said "You are super awesome and super qualified, but we picked someone else". It kinda made it seem like I'm too good for them or something, haha. I was excited about the idea of being a flight attendant, but I'm really not upset or anything. My mom seems to be way more upset than I am! I only feel sad for the JetBlue passengers who won't get to experience the joy of having me serve them snacks and drinks and such. It's truly a tragedy! :P

Since that job fell through, I plan to put my full effort into starting an online store. I plan to sell charms, t-shirts, art prints, and other fun stuff, both video game-related and not. If there's anything you guys would like to see on a charm or shirt or poster, feel free to mention it and I might make it!

To anyone who watches my Steam activity, you probably think I've been playing tons of Skyrim. Well, that's been my boyfriend playing it, not me. He doesn't have a Steam account, so I bought the game on my account for him to play it. I'll probably play it eventually after he's all done with it. I still need to finish Arkham Asylum, myself.

I went to a Random Encounter and Protomen show last night. It was a blast, as usual. Tons of my friends were there, and it was awesome hanging with them all. Random Encounter keeps getting better every time I see them, and this was probably my favorite Protomen performance I've seen yet. Since the crowds for the Protomen always pump their fists throughout the entire show, I decided to bring my boxing nun puppet to poke fun at their fist pumping. Here's a photo of me with her:
