New Calendar is up. Two new New Heroes Banners and not a Special Heroes Banner in sight. I'm alright with this (watch them be nothing but alts...). Other than that though, there's not a whole lot going on. Three quests, no VG, the T_T+ and Grand Conquest, Tappa Tappa Tower, two GHeBs (hi Saias) and a ReBHeB, and whatever Golden Week shenanigans end up as (not that it likely matters since it'll probably remain JP only just like last year's). To hell with the Promos', like hell am I forsaking F2P by now.

Meanwhile, I lol'd at clearing the latest Water Blessed Garden in one try with a team of Fjorm, Delthea, Summer Tiki and Olivia (such an annoying map, especially with Infernal inflated stats). Also cleared a bunch of Elite GHeB quests. Most notably, F. Robin's Calvary quest and both Water and Earth Teams for Legion and Clarrise (it helps a ton that you only need to clear R2 Elite GHeBs on Lunatic and not Infernal like R1's).

As for luck. I completely struck out on Thracia's banner. Freebie was a 3 star Chrom (wrong lord) and the rest were 3 or 4 star jobbers as well (Oscar was the best pull).


Edit: Add Ursula's Armor Emblem quest. Was a total pain in the ass until I remembered that I now am no longer restricted to only Red DC. And thus did Male Grima save Christmas.

Unfortunately, the maps in XBC2 aren't nearly as good as they were in XBCs 1 and X. Granted, it does start off well enough, but most of the later areas are basically a few massive empty fields or a bunch of narrow corridor dungeons.

The music does own though.

I was never invested enough in the battle system to really understand it (just kind of brute-forced my way through the first two games), and while I did like the story in XC1, I could take or leave XCS's. What kept drawing me in with the series was the awesome soundtrack and exploring the map. I absolutely loved the map and all the secrets they held.

Still need to get on this new one once I get a few other RPGs I'm in the middle of out of the way.

Thinking about going back to school.
I hate my job.


and my life.

You probably hear this all the time, but if/when you make that decision to go back to school, make sure you do it in such a way that you don't put yourself into even greater debt.  You remember how that real estate bubble burst in 2008 and peoples' lives collapsed all over the country?  The school loan bubble is headed in that exact same direction.  In addition, do your homework about schools and don't fall into the trap of non-accredited, bogus, for-profit, scam schools like Thunderbird University or something.  You don't want your degree to be worth less than the paper it's printed on. 

One option that I see a lot of returning/adult learners taking is going to community college.  That way, you can explore courses of study, get credits, and should you decide to go beyond an Associates, you won't be indebted to a bigger college as long.  Plus, a lot of community colleges have partnerships with state universities, so you can get a good education at a decent price through course credit transfers.

There's a recently abandoned Subway restaurant near my apartment. I walk by it on the way home. Almost every single day for the last two weeks or so, there's been this goose standing outside, staring in through the glass front door. Not even acting aggressive or defending something. Just... staring.

This is why (even with Discord hoppin like it is) we should all still check the forums.  You're a treasure Mesh.

Three Xenoblade games, three (apparently) ridiculously incredible soundtracks.  How do they do it?

Soundtrack is crazy good though. I would literally try and steal whomever did the soundtrack from Monolithsoft.

Yasunori Mitsuda, ACE (TOMOri Kudo, CHiCO), Kenji Hiramatsu, Manami Kiyota

Was planning on spending maybe 100 of my orbs on the Thracia banner, but after an initial bit of luck I hit a long dry streak and ended up spending almost all of them (~250 orbs) before I got something to end my pity rate. Overall I did pretty good though, I ended up with:

Greenolwen (+RES -HP)
Shiro (+SPD -RES)
Nanna (+HP -ATK)
Swordhardt (+RES -SPD)

The -ATK on Nanna is a bummer since its a superbane, but otherwise I think they're okay sets (or good in the case of Shiro). Besides, Nanna will probably get demoted so I can fish for a better set later. For non-5*s I got a Morgan M (+SPD -HP), another Sothe, 2 Hinatas and a Roy.

Also the second set of GHB Quests involves using Blessing teams instead of Emblem teams. It's nice that the stamina cost is 0, so now I can freely screw around with my teams until I figure it out. I still don't have a Fire Blessing team though, and I probably won't try building one until I draw a Fire Legendary of some kind. Back to saving up now so hopefully when the next Legendary banner comes I'll have gathered up a few orbs to get Ephraim.
