Reality

Reality… is a weird thing…

 

It hits you hard in the face when things get tough… but also gives you a somewhat strict set of rules for how things work.

 

I happened to have lost a lot of data recently. Due to a power outage screwing up the logic board on my main hard drive on my rig. I have been trying to pick up the pieces and luckily have had somethings backed up. But not everything that I would have liked to have backed up. I was dumb and was too wary of the newer hard drive that I bought as a secondary for backups.

So that is the most major thing that has happened to me. I was going to use a project file that I had laying around and some Famitracker instruments I had created for a competition that has already started October 1st. But now I have to start anew.  And honestly, that is okay.

I need to push myself to a higher limit to get this done within the timeframe that entries are being accepted. So I’m going to enjoy the pressure of having to juggle an Internship that I have had since July and classes. Not to mention trying to fit in some relaxation time once in a while. I know that I can do it though… I just hope that I can get some support from others while I do this. It isn’t going to be easy for me.

I’ll put up a clip on my SoundCloud account and probably link it here to for easy access if anyone stumbles upon this blog. And I’ll actually try to be a bit more active when it comes to blogging. I tend to forget about this place. Even though it is always on the back of my mind. As I wonder what to do with this site.

I want to do a mobile phone photography blog but I’m not sure how that will turn out. All I have is a crappy cellphone (Samsung Galaxy Prevail) that I really want to replace as soon as I can. I might use my older LG Optimus V with Instagram for “hipster filter awesomeness”. I’ll think of something since I really want to make more memories to look upon as time goes by.

 

Finally, I’d like to mention that I have honestly stopped playing a lot of games that I was interested in. I did recently buy Borderlands 2 (bought a steam copy of it for $36 before it released), Guild Wars 2 (Paid $30 for it on release day in store.) and The Secret World. All awesome games for what they bring to the table. But to be honest, Guild Wars 2 seems a bit hollow at times though its a chaotic piece of PvE  (Player versus Environment) fun for me. Though I do not participate in sPvP (Structured Player versus Player) or WvW (World versus World).

As for Borderlands 2 it is leaps and bounds better then the first game just for the huge facts that runs incredibly smoothly on my hardware at max settings and its options are far more robust then the original. But I’m honestly not that much of an FPS person. So I’ll probably just play with friends (Though I have to play catchup now) or whenever I am bored. And finally The Secret World… is an awesome world. The story, world design and theme are tightly wound together which makes for a solid experience that sucks you in. Though I have to say since last I played (during the early access period) that the mechanics needs a bit of tweaking not too much though. The only reason I don’t play that right now is that I simply don’t want to spend $15 a month that can go towards other things.

That doesn’t mean that I will not play it. But it will be sometime before I do. Though with all that has happened over at Funcom recently. I’m not sure how much time I will have to play it since I fear it won’t last much longer.

And lastly, the last post I have on this blog is about PSO2 (Phantasy Star Online 2). Sega of Japan is doing amazing things with the game even as I write this out. They are releasing new things at a blazing speed… and taking care of hackers and bugs as well. And it still isn’t IP blocked… which makes me happy. But it has been announced within the past couple of months that there is going to be a North American version next year and when it comes out, I’ll probably try it out. But I’m going to stay on the Japanese server if I can. I shall try to do something with it whenever I have time. But as it stands my Famicompo entry and school take priority.

I haven’t written this much in forever. Which is probably because I don’t really ever have much to say unless a lot of time has passed… which it has.  I’m now a year older… my birthday was on the 3rd of this month (October for people who don’t read time stamps on blog posts). So I am now a young age of 23… and still not a year wiser.

I don’t have much else to say now so until next time.
