I'm going to leave this here for the kids who think I'm "attacking" them because I rate them low. No one is going to get an automatic ten from me. Ask friends, ask well established members. I am a harsh judge, deal with it. Put some effort into your profiles, don't just copy and paste the same shit over and over again.
I can't be bothered to keep up with all the profiles some members own either... not the hundreds of name changes made. I rarely rate a profile at this point. Just too much hassle to deal with the drama that comes from a rating, especially if you are a person who rates honestly and not just a 10 giver.
Well, I managed to get a refund on Resident Evil: Village tonight. As I said, there is just one point in the game that I could never play due to how triggering it is for me. And, the supernatural elements get thrown out the window more or less once you kill Lady Dimitrescu, who by the way is the very first boss. So, yeah. After that it becomes just another RE game, and that's not my thing. I watched my Kylo do a full play through, and I'm not missing out on anything by returning it. It's a shame. It was actually really promising up until Lady Dimitrescu dies. And the fact that she and her daughters are the first bosses you fight, when the marketing campaign was built entirely on them... It's such a bait and switch. But, there are still things to keep my Kylo and I busy as the new season for Destiny starts up on Tuesday. It looks pretty awesome, so I'm looking forward to that.
It's been a busy weekend. Yesterday we spent the day over at my aunt Sue's house, visited for a few hours, had a nice lunch, celebrated Mother's Day. It was really nice, I got to see most of my cousins, and got to see their kids. So many kids. I don't get that often these days so I really enjoyed it. And today my mom and I went over to my brother's for Mother's Day. We had a nice lunch, again, and I got to spend time with my nephew and niece. Lucas is going to be 4 next Sunday, and they're having a party on Saturday for him. So, that's going to be fun. All in all, it was a really nice weekend. Lots of family time. Oh, and I got my mom some caramels and this little spa gift box from two sellers on Etsy. I was a little hesitant about the gift box, because vanilla can turn out to be super overpowering and gross, but the scents were so well balanced. I may have to get some stuff from that seller for me, that's how much I liked it.
Also, I had to stop by the grocery store to pick up some drinks for our lunch, and the cashier wished me a happy mother's day. I'm like, no, I'm not a mom. Pets don't count. Having a pet doesn't make you a mother or a father, and you won't change my mind on that. It's an entirely different thing to have a real life human baby than it is to have a dog/cat/snake/whatever.
I don't know if I'm actually going to be able to play Resident Evil: Village. My Kylo has been playing it on stream and I've been watching, but last night he hit a point in the game where there's this fetus monster thing and I just broke down crying. It's not horror related at all, I can stand most horror games, but it's triggering for other reasons. And I just... I can't. I was in a party with him as he was streaming and he hit that point and I fucking broke and started crying and it was just awful. I couldn't get to sleep, I couldn't think about anything else. It was not a good time. So... Even though that part seems to only be confined to that one section of the game, I still don't know if I can do it. I might just wind up returning it. That's not what I signed up for.
I wasn't going to, but I wound up buying Resident Evil: Village. My Kylo pre-ordered it months ago and started playing it tonight when it released at 9. He's been streaming it while in a party with me, and I have to say, it looks really good. I'm not a big fan of the series, I'm not a big fan of murdering heaps of zombies and mutants and whatever, but since this one is more supernatural based, it's more appealing. So, it's currently installing on my Xbox while I watch him play through it. It's helpful for me because this let's me know where I need to go and what I need to do. I'm just going to let it install all night while I sleep so I can play it tomorrow.
I don't often take pictures of myself that I like, but I like this one. Probably because I'm in the dark.
I'm not quite sure why, but it really annoys me to see that the school system has failed so many. People don't know basic grammar, basic spelling, basic math and science. I'm not college educated, I tried, but I don't do well with forced education. I like to learn what interests me and I like to do it in my own time. But even so, I payed attention and learned something in the 12 years I was required to go to school. Why haven't so many others? Why are the most basic of things beyond their comprehension? You can't be that fucking stupid, can you?
It's not just here, though the amount of people who don't know the difference between "a lot" and "allot" makes me want to cry. I see it on Facebook, I deal with it in my real life. It gets to me. I don't know why, it's not like it really has any effect on my life, but it bothers me. Is it laziness? Stupidity? Disability? Any combination of the three? I don't know, but I don't like it. When someone talks to me online, using text speech or misspelling basic words more than what I deem acceptable, I immediately stop talking to that person. If you don't have the ability to talk to me like an adult, I want nothing to do with you. You don't need to be professional, you just need to not look like a fucking moron. And when you're too lazy to see how a word is spelled, you fall into that fucking moron catagory.
And, this isn't me saying I'm perfect all the time. I'm not. Not by any streach of the imagination. But, the difference is that I will look something up if I'm not sure of it. I will read and reread things and try to sort out typos and misuse of words before I send them. There will always be mistakes, again, I'm not perfect, but I do my best to limit them as much as possible.
It makes me mental as well! I am by no means perfect. I too make grammar and spelling errors from time to time, especially when in a hurry, however I know the difference between WANT and WON'T! There are times that I will make a post or send a message from my phone and in my rush fail to read it over before submitting it only to find that my smart phone is stupid and has "corrected" something that was already correct. THAT irritates me to no end as well. I home school my son due to not being happy with the public education system.
I just bought the cutest pair of Minnie ears from a little Etsy shop. They're Kylo Ren themed, because of course they are. I was looking at what was available for May the 4th via the Disney Store, they have Darth Vader themed Minnie ears for pre-order, but honestly, they aren't that nice. So, instead, I got the ones from Etsy that I've had my eyes on for a few months. So now, when I can finally go back to the parks, I'll have my Kylo Ren mini backpack and wallet set from Loungefly, my Vader Adidas, my Kylo lightsaber necklace, one of my many Star Wars shirts, and a nice set of Kylo themed Minnie ears ready to go. Bit much? Probably. But, what can I say? I'm a Star Wars nerd, have been since I was a kid.
Also, because it is May the 4th, I wanted to share the picture my Kylo made of himself in costume and shared with me yesterday. He's freaking adorable.
Well, we finally finished Game of Thrones tonight. It was fun watching it with someone who didn't know the story, who hasn't read the books or was particularly interested in the show when it was on the air. It was fun explaining things to him and getting his thoughts on things. And, he didn't dislike the way it ended, which is refreshing. I'm so used to being in the minority with having enjoyed the last season, with not being upset with the way the series ended. So, to have someone who feels the same way about it was really nice. It was fun, but now we need to find something new to watch.
