The weather this week has been unusually warm. And in response, my allergies have kicked in >.< For the past half week I've been sneezing, hacking, and feeling horrible. The upcoming week is about to get really hectic too because not only do I have work to look forward to, but I have to study up for the last test of my A+ Certification test coming up next Monday. Just hope I start feeling better soon.
Finally had some time this morning to put up a post. I've been absent the past couple of days, just haven't had the free time to be working with my blog : /. I have however kept up with the news in my absence. I did take note that the other day Activision had decided to discontinue the Guitar Hero line. I was quite taken back by this decision but after a few minutes of pondering, saw why they decided to discontinue the line. The fact that they did have content for you to download off the Xbox Live Marketplace was nice, but a decent chunk of their income was coming from the games being sold. And not many people can or want to shell out 60 bucks for a new game just because there are a few songs available on it that you like and the only way to play them is to buy the game. I myself didn't come around to buying some of the latest Guitar Hero games till after they started showing up on the Pre-Owned shelves at the local Game Stop. Even then, after a play through or 4, the game went back into the case, and put on my shelf with the other games. They had a good run while it lasted but it's time to move on. Breaking News this hour 11:30 AM EST, Mubarak finally steps down in Egypt! My hopes go out to the Egyptians in their struggle and fight for the government they truly deserve.
Maybe it's the alcohol I drink, or maybe it's just my brain is full of "WTF"...my dreams lately have been the strangest I've ever had. A few months ago I dream about shooting Vampire Batman outside of a Chinese food restaurant in Singapore...and today I woke up from a dream where I'm walking into a public restroom at the mall to find a man who was cut in half, being hung from the neck. As I walked up to the urinal, right beside the mutilated corpse, I noticed that the body seemed to turn to always be facing me. Reminded me of the Mona Lisa strangely. So I leave the restroom to find somebody to come take care of the body...when I finally find somebody, we go back into the restroom to find that the body is no longer cut in half, but still strung up, and he had a friend accompany him beside the stall he was hung on. And the same thing happened from earlier, as the door was opened and I walked into the restroom, both bodies slowly turned to face me. I don't do drugs, I don't smoke very often, just a cigar every once in awhile...so I honestly have no clue where these come from.
So today didn't start out as awesome as I had hoped. Woke up with a bit of back pain and the dread of work soon. After spending all day out in the cold working, finally get to come home to find that my cat is feeling under the weather and a growing list of things that need to be done. Just want this day to finish crawling by so I can lay back down :P
I'm not a big sports fan, never really cared for anything in sports besides the cheerleaders ; ). So today, I'll be catching up with my friends, finding an excuse to drink, and of course, firing up the Xbox and PC for a little newb pwning. Hope everybody has a wonderful day and enjoys the Super Bowl.
I'll be completely honest, I lost faith in humanity a looooong time ago. There have been very few and rare occasions where simple acts had started to redeem humanity just a little to me. But all it takes is a few hours on Xbox Live to completely shatter that minuscule shard of hope. I love how parents just let the internet and video games babysit their children without keeping tabs on them. The things today's youth will scream through an Xbox mic are just unreal. Just remember that these filth belching, prepubescent, excuses for a life are going to grow up. They'll soon be able to voice their opinions in areas where it will actually be heard by the majority. This worries me slightly. But that's for tomorrow's hitmen and assassins to worry about. For today, I'll just savor their screams of obscenities while they are being ground beneath my heel.
I decided to start Blogging about my life since I've noticed I'm quite a reclusive person outside my group of friends. I enjoy working on computers, hanging out with friends, and the occasional drink every now and then. Currently I am working on my IT Certifications so I can get out from under my parents roof and start actually living my life on my own terms. I play World of Warcraft and occasionally power up the 360 for a few rounds of Halo till the agonizing sound of prepubescent children drive me ever closer to insanity. The best thing I find about PC gaming is that unless you are in Vent or Skype, you can't hear the obnoxious sound of children being ignorant and stupid.
