YES! Finally finished the school year. Jesus, this year was such a drag. Doesn’t matter anymore though since now its time for my vacation! This summer will be pretty sweet as well since I’ll be going to the Dominican Republic, haven’t been there since i was like 12 or something(for reference I’m now 20). Plus Smash comes out this summer as well which makes me more hype(pls Nintendo, no one in the US considers September part of summer so don’t release it that late). For those who are still in school good luck with your last few days and good luck on your finals as well.
Truthfully nothing interesting has been going on in my life lately(social wise), shocking, I know. BUT, my gaming life has been pretty sweet. I’ve finally finish The Witcher 2, my first playthrough was on Iorveth’s side. Holy shit, the first two acts in the game were LOOOOOOONG. I didn’t even know the game was split up in 3 acts until on my 12th hour of gameplay I finished the first act. All I thought to myself was “da fuck!? that was all one act, how many freaking acts are in the game!?” Not that I dislike long games, it’s just that it got me off guard.I’ll go back soon for another playthrough on Roche’s side. This time I’ll play on normal. Yea, that’s right. I played on easy; game is super hard. 😛
Also, I’ve pre-ordered GTA5 on psn. Normally I’m highly against pre-ordering/purchasing retail games on psn because they’re marked full price, but I made an exception this ONE time because both my brother and I would like to play GTA Online together. Red Dead Redemption was my favorite multiplayer game this gen, so if GTA is even half as good as that I’d be more than happy, though I’m sure it’ll be way better.
Um, let’s see… I also bought Spelunky today on PSN. game is hard as balls. Still haven’t gotten past 1-3. Its is really fun though; and I’m very shocked but I think I actually like how the game looks more on the Vita than I do on the PS3. I know, weird, right?
AAAAANNNNNND lastly, tonight is my final day of Summer. Tomorrow I have to wake up early for my first day of school. Super disappointed when I found out I started school so early. Every school I’ve ever been to has always started on Sept. 9, Y U START SO EARLY, BROOKLYN COLLEGE!? So yea, I’ll make a new post tomorrow or something on how my first day back goes. By the way, this is a new school, so I got to make friends all over again, what a drag. >_>
I got two tickets to go see the Tigers vs the Mets at Citi Stadium. I don’t know squat about baseball but hey, I got ’em for donating my blood so I figured I should go. I’ve never been to a stadium anyway, and I haven’t gone to much places this Summer so why not. I’ll be taking my little brother with me, truthfully speaking I wanted to take a girl with me but my bro has been in the same boat as me (we both had a shitty Summer because of some living arrangements) so I thought he would need this nice little day out. 🙂
Finally steam got something I want to buy, I picked up Tomb Raider, I was going to pick up hitman but I think I won’t be able to pick it up today so I’ll have to wait till it goes on sale again. Also, Elder Scrolls Online is awesome, don’t want to talk about it though since the NDA and all.
My hard drive is dying!! it makes an irritating clicking sound every now and then and when it does it my pc starts to slow down tremendously. I’m currently backing up files, you know the important shit. School work, short stories I’ve typed, some funny gifs and pictures, game saves, and my Fallout New Vegas file. I really hope I don’t lose all my mods. It was such a pain in the ass when I switched over from my laptop to a PC. Had to redownload everything because for some reason my NV would crash all the time. This time I’m copying over my Nexus mod manager and my NV folder.
It sucks that my hard drive is dying though, I haven’t even had it for a year well, I’m going to look around Amazon or Newegg and see what I can find. Thinking of getting a 2TB Western Digital HDD. I hear it’s a good brand, hopefully it doesn’t crap out on me in less than a year like this one did >_>. I was planning on starting my Witcher 2 playthough today, guess that’ll go on hold. Plus, I don’t think I’ll be purchasing anything this summer during the Steam sale since most likely I’ll end up spending my entire steam budget on a new hard drive 😦 Guess I’ll have to wait till the winter; maybe I can get some of the money from my aunt who owes me like $1.5k(it’s a long story, don’t ask.) and I might be able to still buy stuff. I don’t know, we’ll see.
Oh my Jesus the landlord is such a frustrating man. My room has been having this problem for whats going to be two years in a couple of months and it STILL does this! Every time we tell him about it what I assume he does is simply “fixes” the spot with the problem when he goes to the roof and that’s obviously not working. He needs to redo the whole fucking roof or something, apparently before we moved in here the ceiling in my room has collapsed before. I’m a really light sleeper so I had to share a bed with my brother, that dripping sound was beyond frustrating. So besides that little issue, starting today all my friends are officially employed! Looks like I’m the only one who still doesn’t have a job. I should change that once Summer is over, I’m going to be 20 pretty soon and don’t have much experience working outside the family business(which is something I want to get out of.) I’m still waiting for an email from Brooklyn College telling me if I got in or not. I’d assume I’m getting in no problem since I definitely have the grades for it but I need to pick out classes for the Fall semester, I have no doubt that I’ll have a shitty schedule since I still haven’t gotten to apply. I just hope it’s not too shitty. The good news is that Brooklyn College is a lot closer to home than my previous school was. It took me about an hour to get home when I went over there compared to the nearly two hour ride home from my previous college. Also getting Persona 4: Golden today. Hopefully it arrives early so I can play it!
Since I’m getting a new Vita game today I attempted to beat Magusar again in Soul Sacrifice. When I originally went up against him he killed me quickly, but when I tried again he’s really easy. I destroyed him, man. Only had to heal like twice and that was it. I liked the ending, it was pretty tragic, but that makes sense since the game’s lore isn’t a happy one. I’m planning on beating Magusar again to watch the save ending and see how that turns out. Also, just cause I beat the final boss doesn’t mean I’m done. Still got a bunch of Avalon Pacts I haven’t completed plus multiplayer is a blast to play.
I’m officially done with finals now, woohoo!! Now its time to enjoy my summer vacation. I took care of some paper work for school as well, the good news is that i might not actually lose a semester, but I’ll most likely have a shitty schedule if i am able to attend school for the fall semester. With school finally done i can focus on clearing my backlog and also read some manga that i haven’t had time to read, plus E3 starts monday, so hyped for that! Well, till sunday guys, I’ll be posting my E3 wish list for Nintendo and Sony that day; I wont be doing one for Microsoft since theres nothing they can show that’ll make me even consider buying a xbone.
Its that time of the year again. My feelings towards this time of year is a love and hate thing. On one side its arguably the most stressful week of school since a good chunk of your grade relies on these scores, but at the same time once you’re done it’s time to enjoy summer vacation! I’m really looking forward to this Summer as well, because this will be the first summer in like 4 years that I don’t have to attend Summer school! Just in case you’re wondering thr reason I go to summer school so much is to get some extra school work done, not because I failed a class and needed to attend. The other thing I hate about finals is that I NEVER study until like the hour before the test, and I really can’t do that this time since I have to type a monologue to hand in and present on Thursday for my acting class; ugh, I hate me. Good luck, everyone!
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.
