Hello once again, fellow deviants. I thought I'd do a little preemptive update because A) I'm bored, and B) I need a little relief from my work schedule.
It's coming down to the wire for my last semester at college, and I've got papers and projects out the wazoo. Balance that with my 5-day-a-week job and my lack of a car of my own, and I've got a pretty full schedule. Unfortunately this means I've had pretty much no down time to myself aside from the wee hours of the morning.
After God of War Ascension, Chains of Olympus, and #1, I became absolutely enthralled with Skyrim. I took me a few months, but I've successfully played it into the ground. All the DLC, all the bosses, all the Dragon Priests, and all of the Daedric weapons. I have nothing else to do. Which in one way kinda sucks, but in another way makes me feel complete. Plus, it keeps away the cravings to game when I should be studying/working. But I took some time to write this journal cuz I need a break.
I haven't been able to focus on my fanfictions AT ALL and it's making me very sad I've been thinking about poor Kratos for quite some time, and I don't want to lose it! I know I'll power through it someday, but it's frustrating me that I don't have the time, and when I do I don't have the drive. XC
I'm best at writing something when I have no worries, and I can focus on it for a long time after not thinking about it. Yeah, I'm weird.
The progress in creating the web show with my roommate has been slow. We're definitely gathering movies, most recently "Action Jackson." Yes, it's real. And we have the video recording software. But we need editing software and a decent microphone. Grr.
Also, I have decided wholeheartedly what I am going to do for MegaCon next year. I may not quite have the height for it, but I'm going to cosplay for Harry Dresden! Pentacle necklace, black leather duster, rings, staff, the whole nine yards. It's gonna be epic. My other roommate suggested we go as a pair; Harry Dresden and his brother. But he made the point that his brother really doesn't stand alone as a recognizable cosplay. Oh well.
Which reminds me, I've been trying to work on a Dresden/Hellboy crossover. I have the plot in-mind, I just need physical details for the characters as they appear in the time-frame I've picked out. So I actually need to re-read the books up to that point. I've only been able to re-read Storm Front, but hopefully I'll have time when school ends. I plan on ordering the whole series as hardcover anthologies. I just wish they'd release the next one already!
Unfortunately my spending is going to be cut a lot now, due to officially moving in with my roommates in June. I work at Family Dollar, so I don't get many hours. Usually only 6 per-shift, and maybe 3 shifts a week. I need that just to survive. But I should be coming into some money soon from some collected debts, and hopefully that'll keep me happy for a while.
I saw the new "Evil Dead" this month. And honestly, having seen the originals, I liked it. It doesn't really keep with the mythos, nor does it make much reference to the classics, but it's a great modern update, I suppose. It doesn't tread on the first plotline, but it follows the spirit well enough. And there's even rumors of a universe-bridging film! Who knows? After taking time to think it through, it's definitely feasible.
And speaking of movies, Iron Man 3 finally comes out this weekend! I'm seeing the midnighter with a few friends. Cannot fucking wait.
Let's see... the only other update I can offer is a recent interest in the band Jet Black Stare. Shrug. I like their variation song-to-song. It feels fresh, and the vocalist is pretty good. It isn't as omni-depressing as Shinedown or as hard as Nickelback, but a nice chill band. Oh well.
That's about it for this update, fellow deviants. I shall see you all in Phase Two! ;D
