Hm. So, I got an email saying my paid account is going to expire and for once, I think, should I renew it? I'm unsure. People in fandoms are promoting Dreamwidth and I might go check it out.

I also was told today that our drought that happened here will get worse. I am worried so much for my horses now... Just as a side effect.

Talking To

Feb. 6th, 2016 03:04 am
bluecherrybomb: (Panty Old)
So, yesterday the head of our program, Rodger, came to talk to me. Apparently, someone in our class complained to him about me, saying I'm telling kids to shut up and they're stupid. He said it was probably a miscommunication and I told him I tell those things to Swede and a few others because they are my friends. Rodger was cool about it but he was concerned about them going to the dean and such. So, now I need to watch my words.

I'm pretty sure I know who did this in class. It's Lauren, the self-righteous cunt who is so passive aggressive it makes baby canadians hurt. Like, this is the chick who writes out lists if we are asking real questions in class or if we are giving opinions and makes a chart of it. Or who tells us all we need to all get along. I told her off once and now she's acting like this. Like, I have to limit my speech now - which is fine - because she's offended.


I'm going to let it slide but I am ignoring the bitch from pretty much here on out. Like, I have been before but now I'm for sure pretending she doesn't exist. My only solace comes from the fact that Kaylee was furious about this. Like dang, that girl, I like.

No Life

Oh man, I do not have a life anymore, I swear. I just got finished writing out my notes for Plant Physiology and then some of my Soils and Geomorphology. I still have GIS and Sustainable Management and it feels like I have not had time to myself in forever.

Really, that is what I have been doing.

Oh, but I did write today. And I missed it so much.
bluecherrybomb: (The Pretty Robot of Tsubasa)
I turn 27 today. And I had to go to school. Fuckin' dumb.

Anyways, kind of sucks I'm back. I actually had ideas on writing fanfiction and now it seems I have to just sit my ass down and fucking do homework, which blows. I keep telling myself that if I survived one semester, I can do this one but crimony... I just hate this program.
bluecherrybomb: (Corset Chi)
HnnnnnnGGGGGHH. I just finished all the Events for Legend of a Land United and HNNNNGH Naotora's ending with the Shimazu killed me. It ends with her chasing Toyohisa down and right when she gets him, he shoots her. Then Tadakatsu comes and slays him.

Thing is, in the Eastern Army's story, she survives. So, my little shipping head went nuts with how this could canonically happen which is naturally, she didn't die from getting shot. Tadakatsu took her back to get her patched up and she still lives. Emphasis here on Tadakatsu bringing her back. Just... flailing words.

Other than that, I still have quite the few Events to find and Objectives to clear. I am doing them, slowly but surely, but it is a pain. Fighting a battle six times gets really tedious, not going to lie.

Past Blast

Jan. 2nd, 2016 05:20 pm
bluecherrybomb: (Hold It Right There!)
Well, I decided to dick around on the Internet today instead of reading or do anything productive. I re-read old articles, went on TV Tropes, and was amusing myself when a thought occurred to me. So, if Livejournal ever goes down... where will my fanfics go? I actually thought about this, not going to lie. I'm thinking of maybe doing what I did before and putting a ton of my fics into multi-chapters on AO3, but using like, the date I wrote them to hide them from getting on the front. These are old fics and probably would work better like that.

But at the same time, I don't really want to expose them. But then I do because I want a record that I wrote them. Sure, I've got them on my external Harddrive but I worry about the day when I can't access that, what will happen to my fics? As of right now, Livejournal is the only place where I have fics I've documented since like 2010. Or 2009. One of those years. (Edit: 2011, whoops).

So, I don't know. I know one person out there who would die to see my Persona 4 fics again. Like she would be ecstatic. And I wouldn't mind putting those up. My Skyrim ones... ehh... Maybe. Not all of them, of course, but you know. And the rest are already all up, save for like, a Pokemon Conquest one. I should put that up on AO3. Anyways, it's something for me to think about...

...In between trying to figure out a way to get Kagekatsu and Lady Hayakawa together...
bluecherrybomb: (Panty and Brief Love)
*throws a fucking table* HOLY SHIT INTERACTION OF MY OTP

Lady Hayakawa: H-Hello. I know you.
Kagekatsu Uesugi: You will kill your family? (Referring to Kai)
Lady Hayakawa: Once, long ago, you killed Saburo... You killed your own family.
Kagekatsu Uesugi: That's right.
Lady Hayakawa: I hated you for that. It was so hard, having someone so dear to me just ripped away. But now, I've come to see the truth. No matter how hard, how terrible it is... There are times when waging war against those dearest to you is the right thing to do.
Kagekatsu Uesugi: Overcoming that sadness will make you stronger.
Lady Hayakawa: Thank you.

*flips every table in the country* FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK I SHIP THEM TO THE MOON AND BACK
bluecherrybomb: (Moon Makeup Power)
Oh man. So, playing on my PS4 and I bought Samurai Warriors 4-II. Of course. But oh god, I've only been playing Survival mode and Challenge mode and in the course of three days I managed to get Kagekatsu up to level 50. He's slow, but a tank so I don't mind. I use him to farm for strategy tomes. But playing as Magoichi... unf. He's as smooth as silk to play. He's got this beautiful slide that is so natural to play as it's like skating on butter. Like again, just gliding is so... unnnnnf.

Which is funny considering I don't think Magoichi is my second favourite male (he might be now). I actually am fighting between Sakon and Tadakatsu because hot damn bara dads. But then... Magoichi. The struggle is real.

Anyways, still fighting along. Oh, I also found out I might be an Aunt in August. I was excited hearing it but now that it's faded off... meh. Sort of interesting though.
bluecherrybomb: (Pissed Love God)
Yukimura Sanada: Lord Kagekatsu, you are very kind. Surely, you've come to defeat me in order to spare Master Kanetsugu the pain. I shall not back down, however! You shall face my full strength!
Kagekatsu Uesugi: Good!

bluecherrybomb: (Blue Skies)
I'm in love with my PS4.

I'm in love with Photo Mode.

I love everything about it.

It's my new boyfriend.
bluecherrybomb: (Team Plasmaite)
Well, I'm whittling down my massive list slowly. I only have about.. six achievements or so left now? They're massive but some of them are definitely doable. I don't really want to move on to Samurai Warriors 4-II until I'm done them though so I'm slogging along. As I do, I'm reading in the meantime. It's... hm.

Like, the one book I got at the library was sort of interesting. It was written in like, the 1980s but it got new covers - which drew me to it. Unfortunately, I spoiled myself when I looked up how many books were in the series because, well, the books are thirty years old. It was inevitable. But still... I dunno. They weren't the best but they weren't the worst either.

The books had little detail and skimmed a lot. Which, you know, I don't mind but it felt very incomplete to just rush things. 'Oh, this is Prince Y. And his friends. They immediately like the new kid.' I would have liked that to be fleshed out more...

But then, this book I'm reading now has more detail but it's so formulaic. 'Young teen girl finds out she's really a faery princess and blah blah needs to save her half brother in a Labyrinth plot.' Like, okay. But this book is just like the hundreds of others out there. It isn't really standing out. And it's irritating reading another "Oh, a human? Humans are SO stupid! They can't see the world/imagination around them and they think we don't exist!"

Just once, I would like to read the opposite. Like the faery world is the one where everyone is slow on the uptake and humans are the fascinating, interesting ones. But what do I know.

So, yeah. I might try and finish the Tohoku objectives today. Already grinded some rare weapons but I might continue tomorrow. And all in all, this does not feel like Christmas Eve.
bluecherrybomb: (Code Geass Two)
Fuck me. I'm playing through The Legend of the Sanada and just... the more times I see Kanetsugu, Yukimura, and Mitsunari interact, the more I am convinced this is my new loser trio. Yukimura and Kanetsugu are incredible losers. Like I can barely take it sometimes because... crimony you two. And Mitsunari is just there so unhappy. I just... fucccck.

It all just makes me remember I really need to write more. Especially since SW3 Chronicles destroyed me with how Naotora took revenge on me killing Tadakastu... then asked him to wait for her when I killed her. And I just collapsed because UGH NO NO BABIES. Like I need to write shit with them. And the Uesugi mess. And now the Loser trio. Like gaaah.

Honestly, I haven't been doing much other than Samurai Warriors 4. Since mom is sick and I'm not feeling too hot, I've just been taking it easy playing this while feeding the animals. It's actually ridiculous to think that Christmas is almost here. It feels like I've been out of school forever...
bluecherrybomb: (A Blue Maiden)
Well, I finally did it. I got the achievement for getting all the Officers heirlooms. The last fucking one I got was Okuni. The first... was it Nobuyuki? Yes, it was Nobuyuki. But it's done. I got them all. Now I can move on!

Right now I'm moving with Sakon to try and get our rare weapons. There's a trophy for getting 20 and I might aim for just that. Getting all 56 seems like a daunting task that I don't know if I can do. Maybe I should. Commit and all that. But ugh, it would take forever.

In other news, my mom is sick right now. Like, laying in our bathroom sick. So, I tended to her, fed all the animals, and am now sitting downstairs while she sleeps. I hope she'll be alright...

No, I need to keep positive. She probably picked up something when we went shopping. She just needs to let her body take its course. My mom is a healthy woman otherwise. So, she'll be good. I just need to make sure she consumes her liquids and stays in bed.

bluecherrybomb: (Oh Noes Gay)
Reminds me: I had crab rangoon. It was delicious, I loved it, and Ajay, you were a fool not to stay and eat it to begin with.

Anyways, I hope this year's winter steam sale put Far Cry 4 on for cheap. I know I have like, 98% done on the PS3 but I would really like to see the mods for it and tackle it on PC. The graphics must be gorgeous for it.

Not much else to report. Went skiing. It was hard. I definitely need to get back in shape. And I need to get back to dicking around in SW3 Chronicles. I really want to get Kagekatsu on my side and try and manipulate him to LOVE ME.
bluecherrybomb: (Kagekatsu Red)
So, at 4:00am this morning I just got a huge urge to change my layout and update some graphics. So, ta-da~! New layout, new banner, new friends banner, and a few new userpics for me. I'm actually thinking of retiring some userpics and bringing in more video games ones or anime. Sometimes, you just get tired of the same old, you know? But, we'll see. My term is up in February so I'll probably renew everything. I know I have to set aside at least $120 for Samurai Warriors 4: Empires. That might be the only new game I buy.

I mean, yeah, Uncharted is coming and boy, do I want it. But the limited edition set looks so... cheap? Yeah. That's what I want to say. I got a freakin' statue with my Far Cry 4 order and the best DLC with Hurk included in it. But Uncharted just has, like, an artbook, a steelbook, and a sticker book. There's apparently one edition with a statue but it's not available in Canada. Ha ha. Damn me for living in the wrong country, eh?

Anyways. There actually isn't many other games I want other than like, Bloodborne with all its DLC. I'm still working on Samurai Warriors (I'm scouring for how to get all events too because... of... reasons) and really I'm comfortable just on the fringe of fandoms right now. I wrote something for Samurai Warriors today and posted it. It was purely general fluff. But maybe this can be a stepping stone to me writing some damn fine shit again. Because I do miss writing, I'm not going to lie.

I also might post some of my pokemon things from the Nuzlocke forum here. On their respective dates, of course. So, don't think you'll get flooded with messages I updated, because you won't. I also might try and make some gifs but making them under 40KB is fucking impossible I swear.
bluecherrybomb: (The Mermaid)
Ho man, I am still on a little high from FINALLY getting all Famous Officers to be 'intimate' with me in terms of Friendship in Chronicle Mode. Oh man, that took... like, at least 100 hours on it's own, maybe more. It took FOREVER, basically. But I did it! The last was Hideyoshi! And the first was Nobuyuki. Aww. But I got my trophy and I got my gold trophy for writing my own name in the biography. That battle was fucking intense to do. Like Kanetsugu (who I should have switched out for Kagekatsu) nearly died because he's an idiot. I nearly got flattened. But shit, I did it. Gold trophy now on my playstation, whoo!

Right now I'm just trying to get the last 3 heirlooms. Okuni, Goemon, and Ginchiyo is all I need and then I'll be done that. And trust me, I really want to be done this so I can get onto my objectives goal. Oh, and a few bronze trophies to get in the story mode. Going into rage mode 5 times, beating 500 enemies with a musou attack (Kagekatsu... you will be needed). There's a Mighty Strike trophy where you have to do it 5 times in a battle... but now that I know setting my blade to have an earth element makes it 100% easier, I may be able to get it without a problem. But the hard one is going to be getting all the rare weapons.

Out of like... what... 55 characters, I only have 3 of the rare weapons. Kagekatsu's, Kojuro's, and now Magoichi's. It's going to be a long battle to do this but hell, I got all the friendships. Maybe this is possible too.

Anyways, back to doing it. I was going to write today this little thing between Naotora and Tadakatsu but then I got lazy. I need to stop doing that and get back to writing...

bluecherrybomb: (The Butterflystress)
Still working on Samurai Warriors 4. It's a lot of work, not going to lie. Chronicle Mode is taking up most of my time with me trying to befriend all these Famous Officers and get their heirlooms. All I have left is Goemon, Oichi, Okuni, Nagamasa, Ginchiyo, Takatora, and Takakage's heirlooms for that trophy.

But for friendships, I need Yukimura Sanada, Nobunaga Oda, Oichi, No, Hideyshi Hashiba, Mitsunari Ishida, Nagamasa Azai, Sakon Shima, Yoshihiro Shimazu, Muneshige Tachibana, Motonari Mori, Yoshitsugu Otani, Hisahide Matsunaga, and Takakage Kobayakawa. Which could be over a hundred more battles to get them (and my trophy).

Not to mention my Life Goals list keeps going up so I need to finish all of those. I think I have Strategist, God of War, and Ninja Master unlocked to do but there's probably more after that.

So, it's not HARD work, but it's time-consuming work. And repeating battles over and over again does get extremely tedious. Hence why I usually listen to podcasts while I do it.

I also have a huge list of objectives to go through. I think I get a trophy for finishing 50% of them and then another for getting 100% which is going to be be huge to take on. There's also the trophy for completing every scenario with every available character (You can only bring two and some scenarios have past ten people) and getting every scene and music unlocked. Like I said... time consuming. I have to watch this YouTube video to get all the scenes because mixing two characters together will get you different event scenes unlocked.

Like I have to commend Koei for doing this. I paid... $70 for the game and then another like, $40 for all the DLC. So a good $110 dollars. But I've played over 400 hours, it says. And I'm still not done. So there's something to be said for them for making the game at least extend past just five hours like Call of Duty ever lasts me.

But I also have books I want to read while I try and get at least SOME trophies before my break ends. Oh, and I have to workout so I can get a job in fire. So... it's actually pretty intensive, my weeks off. I really only take breaks from my game to fill myself up intellectually. Otherwise like... I guess I can fire it back up, go into the Scenarios and do some steps while fighting people.

But yeah. So... that's my life right now. I do like it, don't get me wrong. Doing this feels a lot better than nothing. But man... goals to accomplish before January 2nd, really.
