xenolith: (Godot coffee)
Hello to my (currently small) f-list. Apologies for not being around to comment on other posts as often as I'd like. It has been a pretty busy month. What have I been doing?

-Trying to get back into my usual workout routine. A few different circumstances have made it a bit difficult, but I'm almost back on track I think. Today I did about 3.8 miles in 30 minutes, which is pretty good. I'm still pretty low on the weight lifting, but I guess I need to give it time.

-Trying to complete items on my list. Some may recall the earlier post where I talked about this. It's a little over 150 items now, and some of them will take some time. I've managed to cross a few off my list, though they were pretty minor ones. It's a work in progress.

-Working on RPG Maker! That's right, I'm back into this bitch. I found a nice cache of resources from a Japanese site. They have matching battlecharsets, character sets and face sets, which is pure win. I'll post some screens once I am further in to making it.

-Reading. Not as much fiction/fanfiction as I'd like, most of it has been textbooks and the like. I found some good ones on Social Psychology, Business/Government Relations, and Public Policy in Canada. It cost a good chunk of money (well...good for a high schooler), but I'd say it was well worth it.

-Playing FF7 which I downloaded of the PS3 Network!

Beyond that, it's mostly been other things...visiting family, hanging out with friends, finishing up this year before summer. Etc.

There are some things I'd like to do more of though:

-Make better use of Dreamwidth! I need to start writing fanfic, contributing to fandoms, commenting on other people's posts moar, and so on.

-Go for more outdoor runs.

-Start learning to cook, damn it! I was on my own for a few days a while back and had a hell of a time making anything that didn't involve a microwave or boiling a pot of water T_T

-Cut down on coffee more. I've been trying to go to one cup a day, but I need the stuff like I need air to breathe. It's...so hard.

Anyways, that is the month of June in review. I hope everyone else has been enjoying their month.
xenolith: Why did I sell this game?? (Velvet)
I recently made a giant list of things I'd like to accomplish. I kind of did it with the Playstation 3's "trophy list" in mind. I don't know why, but each title has "The" in it. Here are some examples:

The Marathon (Run the full marathon)
The Resolute (Sit through question period in Ottawa)
The Well Traveled (Visit every province in Canada)
The Ninja (Obtain a black belt in Jiu Jutsu)
The Flash (Run a mile in five minutes or less)
The Bilingual (Learn a second language)

Etc etc. Some are somewhat profound and/or difficult, others may seem a bit silly.  I have 133 on the list, I kid you not. I'm really going to try to do them all. It'll take a few years for some of them, but damn it, I will!

  • Valkyria Chronicles is a sweet game, as is Cross Edge.
  • As if the opposition is trying to blame the Finance Minister for this insane deficit. They were the ones that basically put a gun to the Prime Minister's head and told him to spend like there was no tommorow.
  • I definitely have a crush on EB games girl (but I still love Laura Bailey and Michelle Ruff)
  • Holy shit, there is actually going to be an anime convention here! I've never done cosplay before, but...maybe this is my chance.
  • I've come to realize that when someone puts up their hand in class and says "I just think it's interesting..." (or some variation with that word), what follows will not only *not* be interesting, it will be a waste of time. It's more like "Hey everyone, listen to how smart I am!"
  • Also: cocks.
