I finished Kuroko's Basketball. Getting past the absurdity of some of the skills, it's a really fun anime to watch.

For the spring season, I'm really looking forward to the Captain Earth series.

Also in the fall, I'm excited for the new Tomino Gundam series.

^ Games are probably what got me reading at a younger age when I initially resisted to do so.
I'd say games got me better with money management as well, but now I just get mad that I can't kill monsters outside my house for more exp and "gold".

Anyways.  Fuck school for ruining my life and ruining my dreams.  It's only when you're almost dead does it spit you back into the scary world where there are no decent jobs and everything costs money.

In our situation, we can't grind for experience because none of the 'monsters' we fight give any valuable experience and we're stuck in the beginning areas when we grind for 'gold'.

Speaking of school and work, tomorrow's a big day for me, as I finally get to meet the chair of the accounting department and figure out what I need to do for the work on my MSA degree.

I also started my job yesterday and spent yesterday and today taking classes and tests and watching videos. I'm still not even halfway done with all the testing, but I believe I start actual work tomorrow. I'll be working the night shift of 8 PM to 4 AM, so I'll have to readjust my sleep schedule and hope that doesn't interfere too badly when school starts in the fall.

Well, I don't like being connected to the Internet at all times, which is why I'm part of the 0.000001% of people in their 20s without a smartphone and/or tablet. I wouldn't ever care to use the Internet in a car or at a restaurant. I like being free from the Internet instead of treating it like oxygen.

I finally finished a bunch of bullcrap and will finally start training at the Home Depot this weekend. I'll be working freight, so I hope I don't have to interact with any customers. I'm glad to finally get started, as I had my interview almost a month ago.

I'm still trying to get crap around for registering for classes at my university. I had to fill out a readmission form, and next I need to sit down with an adviser to map out which classes I need to take. Normally I wouldn't bother, but because I never sat down with advisers after I transferred to this university back in 2010, I was forced to go to school for an extra semester, as I fulfilled all of my requirements, but was 7 credit hours short. I had forgotten all about having a certain number of credits to graduate no matter what.

In addition, I'm buying some textbooks from Amazon to go over the concepts of Financial and Managerial Accounting again before I delve into classes either this summer (hopefully) or fall. It's been five years since I've taken an accounting class, so I need the refresher before I delve into the intermediate classes. I'll most likely brush up on finance (which is the major I already have a bachelor's in) so that learning the accounting concepts will be easier for me to grasp.

I still need to figure out when I'll be taking the GMAT, but I should probably start studying for that shit no later than May.

It's actually impossible to multitask for anyone. Your mind can only concentrate on one task at a time. Activities like taking a shit while playing a handheld don't really count as multitasking.

Man, and I thought a lot of Tales games came out in the mid-2000s, but these Atelier games keep popping out left and right. Does that hurt the quality of the titles any (for those that enjoy the series)?

Fairy Tail is returning next month (PV here) and BoA is doing the theme song!

BoA's song Duvet (Lain theme) has been on my work/tattoo playlist for like 6 years now... I freakin' love that song.

Many moons ago when I played in a band, I tried to get the guys I played with on board to cover it. My idea never did come to fruition....(bummer)

In terms of anime, I have nothing new to report and haven't in ages. Why???? Well because since last August the only thing I have watched has been Dragon Ball related crap... I watched all of Dragon Ball Z, then all of GT and now I'm about 75 eps in on Dragon Ball.

I think I'm finally gonna take a toriyama break and re-watch Chronicles of the Heroic Knight.



Different BoA. I'm talking about the Korean pop star that did the ending 'Every Heart' for Inuyasha and the Tales of Graces opening theme song.

Been watching Kuroko's Basketball. I'm digging it so far.

Trying to resume Attack on Titan. The pacing in this show is beyond horrid.

Hunter x Hunter (2011) is really good, though I'm around 70 episodes behind.

I'm still trying to find some anime to get back into. I was on the J-drama train for a while, but there isn't much that I like in J-drama land.

Klutz, you're getting close to where Xillia gets really, really weird in a hurry. I needed a break from the game just because the plot development was so out of left field.
41  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: March 15, 2014, 11:12:43 PM
I got on the computer to do something productive....and instead I'm just listening to a lot of BoA's older songs.

Tales of Xillia. Boy, is the plot in this game really fucking strange or what?
43  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: March 11, 2014, 01:30:45 PM
Had nothing but almost-nightmares... First one was about titans, next one was about zombies and the last was about zombie titans (that one took place in a school). I blame my sister, because she made me babysit that tiny neurotic dog she namd Levi.

The same kind of titans from Attack on Titan or just titans in general?

Just finished Chapter 3 in Tales of Xillia (Jude Route). I honestly didn't expect some of the plot twists at the end of chapter 2/beginning of chapter 3, as the story took a whole different direction than what I had expected.

(I guess the spoiler tag doesn't work or something.)

In the beginning of chapter 4 now and I really hate this section of the game. Everyone is acting all moody. I think even Sasuke from Naruto could call these people 'broody-ass pussies' or something. God damn. I hope that changes very soon, as I can tell I'm getting closer to the end of the game.

Tales of Xillia, about 18 hours in and nearing the end of Chapter 2. Basically, I got past the part where Elize was being a little moody bitch as if she was the angsty teen in a shounen manga.

During some random battles, I tried playing with Alvin since I thought he was the typical swordsman in a Tales game, but he's slow as fuck, so I quckly switched back over to Jude. I remember in Abyss I spent a lot of time switching between Luke and Guy, and in Vesperia I spent time switching between Yuri and Judith, but in Xillia, I haven't liked playing any other character than Jude.

I think Milla plays pretty well.  I agree with you, though, that other than her and Jude and didn't enjoy playing as much of the Xillia cast.

Just makes me think of old Graces f again...that's got to the be only Tales games in which I actually regularly used the entire cast.  Heck, even the mages were fun to play as in that game.  How did they do it?  And why don't they do it again...

Didn't people like playing as Rita in Vesperia, spamming Tidal Wave and winning every battle with her on a solo run?
