This week has been slow for me work-wise and I got to catch up on sleep after two 100-hour weeks. I have trouble deciding what to do with all of this free time.

you worked either

7 - 14 hour days
6 - 16 hour days
or 5 - 20 hour days

Fuck that noise.  I hope you made double time.

I worked 7 days. On average it was 14, but had some 12 hour days and 15 hours days. I'm salaried, so no overtime.

Yeah, I upgraded to Windows 10, hated it, and went back to 8, which I hate less.

I miss XP.

The work week is over for me. I'll probably just study and catch up on some shows tomorrow and Friday. Saturday I plan to meet some friends in Columbus.

It's 2015 and here I am downloading stuff over IRC with mIRC.
Some things never change I guess.

I haven't downloaded anything using IRC in 10 years haha.

Since this is my first year out of school, I'm still adjusting to having to work this week and next week. I at least get Thursday and Friday these next two weeks, but it's still an adjustment.

Started my new job not too long ago and it's by the far the worst job I've ever had.

An 80-year-old probably shouldn't be driving in the first place.

The gameplay looks pretty sweet, but I still think the presentation is garbage.

A picture of tubgirl is less offensive than the FE x SMT trailer.

Climate change has been a thing for the past 4.5 billion years, with the sun affecting over 99% of the climate. Man-made climate change is just a bunch of horseshit.

Thank you for reminding everyone that you're still a dingbat libertarian.  Science be damned.

Thank you for reminding everyone that you're a cunt. I didn't even bring up politics at all. Humans have been on Earth for a minuscule amount of time when compared to how long Earth has been around, and to believe that humans are the leading cause in any type of climate change is asinine. The planet is warming because the Earth came out of an ice age recently (in relative terms to how old Earth is).

My family got another beagle on Friday. She's five months old and she must have come from a puppy mill as she's really thin, but luckily still healthy. We have an older beagle pup that's about to turn a year old. He won't leave the younger one alone and always tries fucking with her. I keep on having to make him submit and play with toys alone so the younger one can actually breathe.

And now I've got about six weeks left of summer vacation, so I'll need to start studying around 16 hours a day for the CPA exam.

I beat Pokemon Y last night. I was disappointed in how easy it was. It roughly only took me 6 hours from getting the 5th page to beating the Elite 4 and Champion. I was able to defeat the E4 and Champion on the first try, which surprised me. Ever since Ruby, I've usually had to spend a couple of hours power leveling a couple of Pokemon by retrying the E4 over and over until certain Pokemon were at a high enough level to where I could go through the E4 pretty easily, just using some Revives and Hyper Potions. However, I think I only had two Pokemon faint the whole time during the E4.

I was super excited when I got Pokemon Red as a kid (the cartoon did its job), but ended up being somewhat disappointed with the game. These days whenever I attempt to play a game from the franchise I'm bored to tears within minutes. The games have very little in terms of story and gameplay variety. To me, Pokemon essentially boils down to one giant grind fest.
It's not that I don't see the appeal, but I can't seem to get into these games.

Dug up my Tombraider collection and installed Tomb Raider 1. Had to do a little tampering with the DosBox config file to stop the game going nuts when a pad is connected (Yep, it comes packaged with Dosbox, that's how old TR1 is).
Maybe I'm wearing my nostalgia glasses but my goodness that game holds up well.

There's absolutely no grinding in X/Y unless you want to. You can go from trainer to trainer because you get EXP Share real early on, in which non-combatants get 50% EXP. Honestly, only the first two generations really required any grinding because there were "difficulty" spikes between each gym leader, and then a considerable level gap between the last gym leader and the Elite 4. Since Generation 3, I've roughly only spent about 15 hours on each campaign. The starts since Gen 3 are too OP. You generally just need the fire starter and can whip the shit out of anyone, however, in Gen 4, the grass starter is the best one (since it's final form can learn Earthquake, so you can take out just about anyone with one Pokemon in that game).
