Now, I am not saying that I actually will, but if I were to create another account, I would name it after one of the Charon-class light frigates from the Halo universe. Just sayin'... I want a Halo themed account.
I need to stop playing Halo 4...
Hitting Halo 4 on Heroic... I swear to god, those god damn plasma grenades are the worst thing ever. Every freaking time I die. Over and over again. Fucking grenade happy little fucktards. Ugh. Fuck plasma grenades.
Although, I do get some pretty entertaining kills sometimes when I do toss one at a grunt.
Gotta watch out for the stickies. :D
Kill a few Grunts for me, hm?
I noticed how absolutely eloquent this whole entry was. This is how bad I am when I game. Only, it gets so much worse. So much worse. If we ever play together, Matthew, which I hope we do get the chance, you will totally see as I scream into my headset and at my TV. Haha.
It's been ninety days. I don't know if I really want to take the test again this time around.
I realized something when it comes to my games. I find far more enjoyment out of a good FPS than I do just about any other genre. I would rather shoot something in the head than I would solve puzzles, or save the princess, or whatever else. Sure, I love some non-FPS games immensely, such as the Kingdom Hearts games and the .Hack series (I was obsessed with Kingdom Hearts and .Hack back when I still had my PS2), but I prefer a good shoot 'em up more than anything else these days. It makes me feel better to be able to murder something with a hail of bullets.
Well, I went and added some music to my profile. It's a song from the Halo 4 OST, Green and Blue. It was a tough decision between that and 117. Say what you will about the game, the soundtrack has some pretty amazing songs on it. But, I think that is typical of the Halo franchise, the music tends to be really awesome (just like the games). And, I just noticed it, but it fits my profile rather well. I never thought my background could really be considered Halo-ish, but the space theme I tend to gravitate towards when making them fits right in, plus the gifs from Red vs. Blue lend to the overall Halo feel. But yeah, I love the soundtrack, and it's all I have really been listening to for the past few days. The music makes me happy when I am not playing the game. And Green and Blue is just epic. It's an epic song and I love it so much.
I was supposed to make the stuffing for my family's Thanksgiving dinner. I found a recepie, I worked out when I was going to make it, and I was going to get everything tonight at the store. Then my father informs me that I got pulled from stuffing and moved to the chips and dip... And cookies. I guess my family doesn't trust my awesome cooking skills, so I get dip duty. Take mix, add sour cream, blend and serve. Ugh. I was actually looking forward to making the stuffing. I don't eat it, but I found this awesome recepie and it sounded delicious. My family has no faith in my abilities.
Well, I am not happy with the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. I mean, really, what the hell? They have thrown away everything for some campy ending. Ugh. What's he going to be like now? Where's the regret and inner turmoil going to come from now? That's what made the Doctor, since the reboot, he was more human because he had done that terrible thing and it tore at his very being for all of his existence. So not happy with it.
Clara needs to go away. It's all her fault. I really dislike her character, and I have since her first episode.
I have come to a decision. I hate to see it come to this, but it needs to be done. Maybe, in the future when I can devote the proper amount of time to it, I will try again. But it just wasn't meant to be this time. It saddens me, but it's the truth, I just can't focus on things here to the extent that I need to.
I am going to go back to spending minimal time here. No more going on cam and stuff while I play Halo. I am just going to log into my primary accounts to ensure I keep my Covens and be done with it. I have been slacking with things since I got back from Arizona, that stops today.
So, my sister-in-law comes home from work and is all like, "Dude, can you make a Christmas list?" Like I am a child. I get where she's coming from, it would be a lot easier to go off of things I wrote down that I wanted, but it just made me laugh, because I haven't done one of those in nearly twenty years. I think I am just going to ask for some old Xbox games, stuff like Portal 2 and some of the other Halo games. Things you can get really cheap pre-owned. I would love to ask for some of the newer games, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag or the new Batman game, but I would rather get three or four games for the price of one new one.
I was playing Halo 4 on cam earlier, no picture, just the sound of me screaming "fuck" and many variations of the word at my television. I feel somewhat bad for anyone who came in to chat or something, only to hear me going off on John's A.I., Cortana, and the enemies. Somewhat. I may do it again, and maybe try to reign in my cursing.
Do you have GTA5?
I haven't played a GTA game since Vice City on the PS2. I was never a huge fan of the series, I enjoyed the open world, and raising havoc in any fashion I wanted, but I never was one for the story lines.
In Cortana's defense...Insanity does do funny things to one's personality. :P
Well, I got the gamertag I wanted on Xbox LIVE. A certain someone, who shall remain nameless... S... L... A... I... N... Calls me tank lady, you know, Sheila from Red vs. Blue. So, it just kind of worked that way, I am officially, now and forever, SheilaTankLady. And I love it.
Of course, you can't actually see any of my gaming activity, as my Xbox isn't online, and that won't be changing anytime soon, unfortunately. But, I did set everything up on the computer, and that's all I care about. Now friends can add me and whatever, and I won't be all alone on Xbox when I do get it hooked up to the internet.
So, the trip to Arizona was... Meh. I mean, I love spending time with my family, but since my grandmother had her accident earlier this year, she can't walk like she used to, and she is so afraid to leave her house. I can understand where she's coming from, she is 80 and if I were her age I would be afraid of taking another tumble as well. But, there is absolutely nothing to do at her house. I love her to death, and I love visiting with her, but I can't stand being cooped up in her home for the whole freaking day. I just can't do it. Plus, these pills I am taking as a supplement leave me with all this pent up energy, and I can't release it just sitting on the couch yammering about this, that, and the other thing.
But, we did get her out to dinner and a movie on Sunday. We went with her, Dave, my aunt Sue and uncle Kerry out to Logan's and then out to see Last Vegas. So, that was fun. And we also got her out to the library on Tuesday morning. But other than that we were just at her house all day. Yesterday my mother, aunt Sue and I did go out and do a little book shopping, but my Nana couldn't come. Oh, we also got her out for breakfast before we left. So, that was nice. My aunt Sue said she and Kerry might be down at their house in Rialto for Christmas, which means, should she be feeling well enough to do it, we may do Christmas Eve at her house like my family used to do when they still lived out here. So, if that can happen it would be awesome.
All-in-all the trip was alright. I loved being able to see my Nana and my aunt and uncle. And it was nice to see my aunt doing better than she had been. She is really ill with Crohns disease and the last time we saw her was bad. She has some really bad times thanks to that sickness, but this time she looked so much better. I really worry about her when I see her and she is super thin and weak. I got some new shoes. We stopped by Cabazon, the outlet mall by Morongo on the way home today. My Chucks had seen better days and it was time to replace them. The new pair I got are really nice, super comfortable, even if they do make my feet look big... Heh.
I am seriously worn out. My back and neck hurt from the bed at the hotel and from the drive, and I am just tired. I didn't sleep well in the hotel room. So, yeah. My cats missed me. Aphrodite and Ishtar have been my shadows since I got home. It's cute but a bit annoying. And, I have been playing Halo 4 pretty much nonstop for the past few hours. I am not going to say just how long it took me to get past just the prologue, it has been far too long since I played any kind of real video game. But, it is worth it. I think that may be aiding to the backache, as I am not sitting back against anything on my bed.
All I can really say is that I am glad to be home. I really, really am.
Home! Holy cow, does it ever feel nice to be back in SoCal and out of Yuma. I missed home. Now, to go take a nap. That drive takes a lot out of a person.
Get your butt back in the coven! :p
Nah but seriously, message me on one of my accounts, preferably my main, or my current main account, so I won't miss the message. I want an update from you on how things are going and whether or not you have been around vr and it has been me that has missed you, or if you haven't been logging in. I don't know, I am getting confusing. Basically, I miss talking to you.
I set up a blog on Tumblr, to help me keep track of things and keep me motivated to do what I need to do to get where I need to be. I would use my journal here, but really, I don't want to have to deal with that. It's easier to hide behind a name no one knows, to keep some form of anonymity. It allows me to be more honest and open about things with me.
I am hoping that keeping the record will help me stay on track. I put myself out there, all that's left is for me to keep it up.
I am thinking about giving away a few of my accounts. I really don't have enough time to devote to all seven, and it isn't fair to the Covens that they are a part of.
And possibly Demure and/or Ephemeral.
It's something I seriously need to think about.
If you are considering this let me know id like one and no I dont mean Aki
I am sorry, Cat, but no. Even if I do end up giving said accounts away, I will not let you have one. You tarnish everything you touch, and I put too much time and work into them to let you ruin what I have done.
It wouldn't even be a thought in my mind.
I simply wouldn't have that many accounts in the first place, for the simple fact that too much, is too time consuming and there is no real purpose in it.
I guess i'm more simplistic in nature.
I know what it's like creating alts and such (not on VR but on SL), and I would rather put my time into other things than that.
When you put so much hard work into something it's hard to detach from it, but in the end, it's defo beneficial. :)
I was actually given every alternate account I have, I didn't make them on my own. If I had I would not have reached the number seven. However, I never put much time on any of them, I tend to usually stay active on one or two at any given time. So, it's not like I was wasting away my days glued to this site and participating on each account.
Keep me in mind for any you are giving away that may be of a decent level, I am not that active but heck, no reason to let a decent level account fall into horrible hands. :)
I will be heading off to Yuma on Saturday with my mother. It's time for another family visit. And I will be gone until Wednesday night. I have been spending little time here, but I doubt I will even log on while I am out there. So yeah, just a heads up. Or something.
That was a tense few minutes. My dad works at LAX, he's a TSA agent in one of the terminals. Well, someone decided to open fire on terminal 3 at the TSA screening area, and then a bit away from that. He killed one person, a TSA agent who had just transferred to LAX from Montana, and shot two others.
Thank God it wasn't the terminal my dad works in, so he is all right. I talked to him and my mom, so it's okay. But damn, that is just terrifying to hear, and to watch on the news. I am just... Shaken up quite a bit. I keep thinking that it could have been my dad, he could have been killed, he could have been shot because some moron has a grudge against the TSA, or the government, or police, or authority in general. You may hate them, but they just do what they have to do, it's their job. They aren't bad people, it's all to keep people who fly safe. To go out and specifically target TSA agents in some shooting spree, it is fucking crazy. I don't understand it. I really don't. But, again, my dad is safe, and that's all I really care about right now.
