Today I got both good and bad news in the mail. Good news, I got into RIT! Exciting isn’t it? Finally my ticket out of this place. But, knowing my life there’s always a catch. The catch this time was that yes I did get into RIT, but I can’t go for Game Design & Development because the program is full or some mumbo jumbo, instead the letter says to contact them so I can choose a different major. Whats the point in going if I can’t go for what I want to do? Plus on top of that, I was looking up scholarships to help reduce the cost of the school and I can’t get any of them. So not only can I not go for what I want, but I also can’t get a scholarship to afford it if I do decide to go for a different major. Did I forget to mention that all the CUNY schools I applied to have a wrong social security number(a mistake on THEIR part since I have a copy of my application which has my actual social security) that I still haven’t gotten fixed because their office is only open Monday through Thursday? Damn man, I was really looking forward to getting out of this place, but doesn’t look like that’s happening anytime soon. I suppose I should be a little happy that they’re at least giving me the opportunity to go but with a different major, unlike NYU which just flat out rejected me. I’m feeling really down, man. Just once I wish things would go my way.
I think I mentioned it a while back but if I didn’t, my step dad’s daughter has moved in yesterday. It was a long time coming; something I’m not happy about honestly. For starters, when I was younger we didn’t move because my mother decided to help my step dad(her boyfriend at the time, well technically still her boyfriend but whatever, that’s not the point) open a business, she invested in him is other terms. So because of this we had to live for nearly 7 years in a cramped apartment and my brother and I definitely got the short end of the stick, our room was basically a closet. We had to share a bed a single twin bed, and this continued till eventually we out grew the bed and bought one of those couches that turns to a bed and so we shared that. After 7 tedious years we finally moved, and not even two years have passed and they want me to start sharing a room again!? To a girl who I’ve never even met and has had quite good living conditions if my mother is was telling me the truth. That obviously didn’t go out as they planned as I flat-out refused it, after all, I also help pay rent and go to school, it’s not like I’m some sort of free loader.
Speaking of free loaders, did I mention that he also has another kid; a 21 year guy who doesn’t go to work OR school. This guy literally spends all day partying and we’re constantly sending money to him and for what, for this cunt to go out and have fun? If bringing his daughter over here wasn’t bad enough now he wants to bring the free loader son?! I just hope to God that some miracle happens and I get into RIT and am actually able to get a scholarship to pay for it and live over there, because this apartment is going to become too crowded for my liking. Especially with his two OTHER kids(yes, he has 4 fucking kids. It’s extremely annoying, since 2 out of the 4 are spoiled pieces of shit. Only one of them is a good kid as far as I know. I’m not too sure about the girl who just came to live with us since I’ve never met her before) who will be coming more frequently during the weekends since their sister is now here. No bueno, my friends. No bueno at all.
As I said in a previous post, I’verecently completed Sleeping Dogs and moved on to the DLC “Nightmare in North Point,” and lets just say that add on wasn’t was what I expected. Sure, it was funny and added some extra missions, but it was really short. I completed the entire thing in like an hour and a half. But I can’t complain much, after all, I did buy the game and the dlc back during Steam’s Spring Sale pricing error so in total I believe it was like $6 something. I got 18 hours of gameplay in total so I’d say I got more than my money’s worth.
I know I said I was going to go back into Soul Sacrifice but I’ve been rage quitting a lot in that game recently. I’m up to the mission where you have to solo a Cyclops, the most I’ve done was gotten it’s health to orange before I died. It’s the god damn spider’s and their annoying web skill that keeps fucking me up; the Cyclops’s spinning move doesn’t help neither. So instead I’ve decided to just tackle another game on my Steam backlog, I decided on playing Bastion, a game I picked up during a humble bundle deal(by the way, the game plays like ass with mouse and keyboard in my opinion.) I don’t think I’ll be playing much this weekend because I have my final scene due Tuesday for my acting class and I still don’t got my lines memorized, plus there’s also some writing work I got to do as well for that class.
On another note, RIT finally got my transcript so all that’s left now is for them to review my application. I don’t think I mentioned it before but I applied for game design and programming. I spend most of my time doing game related things, so I figured I might as well make a living out of making games. Yes, I know making games and playing them are two completely different things but honestly nothing else inspires me so yea. Hopefully I get accepted, it’s a really expensive school, plus I’d have to move and live on campus since I live in NYC, but I’ll worry about that once I know if I got accepted or not, NYU already rejected my application so I’m pretty bummed out about that.
