Yes, I am a Geek

May 25

I’ve had a few weeks of interesting things happening. Okay, I lied, I’ve had one major thing happen to me. I may have the opportunity to move 3 hours away to Houston for a new job.

I’m completely terrified.

I’ll be leaving behind everything I’m comfortable with: my family, friends, home, neighborhood, and commute. I’ve had a lot of opposition to this from one person alone, my mom. She hates that I’m leaving so she’s already thinking I’ll fail over there. My future husband thinks I’ll succeed but it just hurts that my mom isn’t on my side for once. I guess I’ll have to prove her wrong if I get this job. Each time I talk to her, I present my side of things and it’s never good enough. However, her words have been working like reverse psychology and just makes me more inclined to accept the position if offered.

I’m stubborn, and when it comes to things that I want to do, I just accept the possible consequences and I’ll do it. I bought this house (big fail) but I did it, and I’m literally paying for it now. I went back to school and finished another degree (if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have had this opportunity come up in the first place). I have to own up to my failures all the time, but this will be 3 hours away where I’ll be alone for 6 months.

My final interview is this week, and I’m completely terrified and excited at the same time. I’m missing a big chunk of my support system, but I’ll be damned that I’ll prove her right.

More Six Words

I woke up and felt the need to write these out. They’re probably just sentences rather than stories but they help with getting me to write.

It’s our anniversary of your death.

A kiss so cold, death followed.

"It moved me," he said, coldly.

Misery loves an audience of one.

"The pain is bearable," she grimaced.

I can’t not play Fallout:NV.

I just finished Dead Money too.
I might be broken. Or at least very sleep deprived for a while.

It’s midnight somewhere

Alright, so it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything on here. I lost a few followers, and I’m sorry for being away. I haven’t been able to put together a good post. I am ashamed to say that I’ve strayed farther away from my backlog. I also stopped writing the last ebook in my Rising series. I’m thinking about scrapping it altogether. Again. 

My hard drive crashed yet again, and I replaced it with a new, empty one. I’m still trying to see if I can recover the data. I was going to have the shop replace it for me but $235 ($35 for diagnostics, $150 for hard drive replacement/labor plus $50 for data recovery) was a little to high for me. I bought some tools ($10) and my new hdd ($90), then installed it myself. I may not be able to get the data off of my old one though, so I failed. I did save some money though. Hooray.

I just realized it’s nearly 12:30am here. I’ve wrapped up my review on Lococycle and some other assignments. I haven’t been able to do that in quite a long time. I’m about to sign up again for Extra Life and get that going pretty soon. I hope to have more time to figure out what to play during that day. I was going back and forth about playing 25 hours straight or dividing up the hours within Fri, Sat and Sun. I’m still up in the air about that one.

I’ll be working on some other assignments, and hopefully what will be the last ebook to end my zombie series.

Six words

I haven’t really written much in a while, so I decided to try out some six word stories to get my brain thinking outside of work. I think most of them turned into 6 word sentences.

Overheard your desperation through my backseat.
He died as she drank forever.
Memories are forgotten, debt is forever.
Blank stares where silence is golden.
Sound stops when mouths are closed.
Misery follows those who welcome her. 

Yep. Sentences or fragments. Oh well.

Destroyer of Backlogs

Okay, so maybe not a destroyer, but I have a plan. I’m planning out what should be the next game to complete and remove from my backlog. I’m making those that I’m stuck on a priority while side quests in Skyrim will probably remain temporarily undone and I won’t be playing Tropico 3 any time soon. This is what I’ve got so far:

Borderlands
Saints Row: The Third
Fallout:NV
Kingdoms of Amalur (deleting that damn save)

I won’t start a new game up until one of these have been completed (except if I’m reviewing something). I have to get this backlog on lockdown. My health hasn’t been as great as it should be, but I’m hoping I’ll be getting somewhat better pretty soon and my plan will be set in motion. To the Excel spreadsheet of backlog!! Actually, I’m still working on that.

In the meantime, I’ve watched more horror and non-horror movies, and I’ll probably work on a mini review on another 2. I’m hoping that writing those out will help with the block I’ve got at the moment.

I know I haven’t really written much to be followed for, but thanks for reading what I’ve posted. :)

Finished

I kinda sorta punked out and played the last few chapters of The Last of Us on easy.

I am ashamed (not really).

As I angrily made my way through tunnels, houses, and sometimes bathrooms, I realized that I still haven’t gotten over my button-mashing habit. Clickers? No problem, button-mash. Bloaters? Why not? ButtonbuttonSquareTriangle!! AHH! I don’t need your controls, I’m a button-mashing machine! …sorry. I loved and hated this game with a passion. It frustrated me with what felt like endless enemies and inconceivable puzzles. However, I loved it all.

So, now what? Well, I’m going to write up all of my backlog and continue to knock those bastards out. I think it’s time to get on this.

I haven’t decided to keep going with the mini horror movie reviews. Eh.

Jan 04

I have no idea what the hell is going on with my brain, but these nightmares are getting more intense. I usually write about them, but I haven’t really written much lately so I’m thinking my ideas are combining together to threaten me to write.

I would’ve been okay with a mental sticky note, but no, I get buried alive in a dirt floor basement. Thanks, brain.

Mini Reviews below

Small Update: I’m waiting on getting the Season 2 of the Walking Dead, because I’m broke and don’t think I can handle making any crazy decisions like I did in the 1st season just yet. It’s been a year and I still can’t believe what happened in Episode 3. Even though, it wasn’t a decision I made so I got over it. Then, there was an achievement in 400 days for the part I’m referencing and brought it all back. Damn it, Lilly! Why?! Ugh. I don’t even….anyways, yeah season 2.

I’ve decided to try and post a couple of mini reviews for certain horror movies I’ve seen recently. I watch too many movies to begin with, I usually stick to horror but end up watching a lot of documentaries too. Let me know what you think.

After the Dawn: Yes, it’s a zombie movie but the fight to survive an apocalypse is not only a physical one but mental as well. You follow a survivor (Cassie) as she journeys through towns, country sides, and major cities. She thinks she’s alone until she finds a boy who looks to have survived the waves of dead people in one of the houses she’s searching. The overall story is interesting and you get to learn about Cassie through her flashbacks. I wasn’t too happy with the way it ended, but it definitely was a different way to take this story. Overall, I’d suggest checking it out while it’s free. May contain: some angry zombies, violence, and gas masks.

Homecoming: A Mischa Barton horror movie where she portrays an extremely obsessed ex-girlfriend (Shelby) waiting on her ex, the star football player (Mike), to come back to retire his jersey. But he’s not alone, the new girlfriend (Elizabeth) comes along to meet his parents and friends. Shelby is visibly upset but plays nice with the new gf while in front of her ex. Things spiral out of control right after. I was surprised with the way this one turned out and didn’t think Shelby could be any crazier or scarier. The story gets a bit slow for a while and builds up to a sort of “oh, I figured that would happen” moment. If you want crazy and obsessed, check this out but be willing to fast forward through some spots. May contain: psycho exes, nuts, and a side of Misery.

These are currently available to watch for free if you have Amazon Prime.
