I just got a new job almost two months ago and I'm enjoying it a lot. I also finished my manuscript for my book. I have a friend who is going to read through it, but they're at college so they haven't gotten the chance to look at it. I'm hoping to have it published by the end of next year. Other than that, I haven't been doing much else.
I'm just here to say two days ago was my 10 year anniversary here. Time sure flies, doesn't it. It only felt like yesterday I was an awkward middle schooler trying to make friends on the internet. Now I'm an awkward adult... nothing more to add to that.
I won't say too much, but I love this game. I got the Switch and this game the day it came out. I was expecting to not like it because of the open world aspect. It's why I refuse to play Skyrim, it's why I never finished Fallout 3 and Xenoblade Chronicles X. I don't know if it's just because it's Zelda or not, but I am loving this game. Though, there are times when I get lost and want to quit and give up. To me, I have to make my own personal goals or the game becomes overwhelming.
I really never found Navi all that annoying. I mean, yeah, I can see where where other people could get annoyed, but she was really helpful, especially when I was a first time Zelda player. Same with Tatl. I liked being told weaknesses and things like that. It helped a lot. Fi wasn't terrible either. Although, her probabilities did get pretty old. Granted it was funny at first, but that river ran dry real quick. Midna on the other hand, I don't like her. I like her story, but not her personality and not as a companion. Mainly because she's kind of a... rude... we'll go with that. Sure she gets better, but eh. Then as a companion, I found her laugh to be more annoying than Navi saying "Hey, listen!"
I'm super excited for it. The only thing is, the world is too big. I don't mind a large world to explore, but if it takes 30 minutes on horseback then that's a bit much. It's also very Elder Scrolls like and a bit Dark Soulish, neither of which I'm a huge fan of. Though, I'm hoping the best out of this because it does look amazing.
Nope. I tried for days. Then last night I tried 4 different browsers, because that's what some sites said to do, and it didn't work. So I uninstalled and reinstalled it to no avail. Then tried 4 browsers again with no luck. So now I'm basically not going to play it until they fix it. Which sucks that I have to wait.
I liked X. It just had a disappointing after game. Black and Black 2 was good. Not my favorite, but it helped me get back into Pokemon after I stopped playing it. I was afraid I wasn't going to like it, but both of them were good. Diamond I didn't really like. The story was meh, the Pokemon were meh, the world was meh, and the Poketch was meh. The underground might've been fun if I had people to play with, but alas, that was not the case. Sapphire were great. I remember playing it in 5th grade during recess. It took me almost a month of 30 minute recess breaks to beat Wallace. His Milotic would slaughter my whole team. I never really liked Gold when it first came out. I remember playing it and being like, "It's okay, but it's not Red." I didn't really enjoy it until I played through Heart Gold. I had a blast with it then. Red was my first Pokemon game and the one I'm most nostalgic about. However, I never beat it because I like 2 or 3 when I got it so like most kids I only raised one Pokemon to a high level then kept losing. Yellow, even though part of Red and Blue, was a different experience altogether. I wasn't any better at it by the time I got it, but I remember loving it for the sheer fact that it was like in the anime where you could get all three starters and I thought that was pretty cool.
Actually, I did finish a complete draft. In fact, I finished a complete draft of two books for a duology. That's why I'm having a hard time with it because I'm butchering it. I'm also trying to make two books into one by using assets from both. After talking about it, I feel pretty good. I'm going to go work on it now! Also, I know what you mean about not fitting in with peers. I can get along with the people I work with, but they aren't the kind of people I'd hang out with outside of work. Luckily my friend is on Spring break this week so I won't feel totally alone.
You know me, I always come and go. Sometimes it's not for a year and sometimes it's not for less. Though, I haven't be "gone" I've just been logged off because for some reason I couldn't log on. This is the first I've tried in weeks. I've been trying to write my book, which is hard because I'm rewriting all of it because of plot holes. Plus I've been trying to live. One of my friends' went to college so I hardly see them and the only other friend I see has other things to do most of the times. Heck, I spent 3 weeks alone for the first time since I graduated in 2012. It was honestly horrible. Also thanks for making me feel old, Shadowknight. I can't believe I joined almost 9 years ago. I remember the old days like it was yesterday. *Sigh* Now I'm just sad.
