Like, omigawd.

I tried out a new MMORPG. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I linked a picture of what my first toon looks like. Isn’t she so freaking adorable? Well, not so much adorable, but hot. *snicker*Clipboard01

What are my first thoughts on Final Fantasy XIV? Well, I was never really a big fan of the franchise prior to this game. Sure, I had a couple games for my Nintendo DS, blah blah blah. But, I was never one of those types of uber fans that went googoo over it.

Anyway, I tried out FF XIV earlier this week because I was getting tired of the stale EQ1/EQ2/WoW hack and slash bullshit. Sure, those games are fun to me and I’ll never leave behind my precious EverQuest. But, I wanted something new. The game play for this game is… different and strange. For me personally, it took some time to get accustomed to it, but eventually I got into the game. Overall, I do like the game and can see myself playing it more and more often. ❤

So Beautiful

Every time I see this video, I cry. Not because it’s sad. But because to me.. something like this is just beautiful. That so many can come together and sing a song. And be happy. If everyone can just get together and do something so wonderful like this, imagine the possibilities. Instead of caring only about yourself, coming together and making the world better.

Tweet Tweet

I am so obsessed with updating my cat’s twitter page. Crazy? Nuts? Sure. But, I could also be bored out of my head, until school starts. Besides, my cat has 17 follows. 17 followers! Who the fuck follows  a cat twitter page?! Especially that’s really updated by a human! There’s a cat twitter page that has over 1.5 million followers. WTF? Blake says that it could all be crazy cat ladies (including me). I was debating on creating a twitter for all 7 cats in the house, but I seriously doubt I can keep up with all 7 cats. That would just drive me nuts. Here’s the cute critter who has the page:

It’s Vacation Time, Brotha™.

August 25th, I’m going down to South Carolina. For vacation. And I couldn’t be happier. It means taking a mental break from my parents (who drive me nuts) and just from Philly life altogether. I’ll be away for 10 days. My Greyhound ticket has already been paid for ($148, cheaper since I paid in advance). I’ve been saving up money all year for a vacation. And now, I’m happy to finally go somewhere, where I can relax.

Of course, I’ll be taking my digital camera with me, so I can take tons of pictures. Most of them will be shown on my blog and stuff. I can’t believe I’m actually going. I’ll also be bringing my laptop with me, so I can stay connected with my friends and my guild and junk. I’ll also be updating my blog at least once a day (hopefully, if I remember) with pictures.

In other news, school officially starts on September 7th. I’m taking 4 classes (english, math, psych 101, and behavioral health 101). I’m glad that I’m actually going back to school and getting my life in order. I just need a change of pace. After my 2 years, I plan on getting my state license so I can practice and I’m set to find me a job in the psych field. A friend of mine, Maria, already attends there. So, at least I’ll know someone to show me around the campus and junk.

The school also has a gymnasium that I plan on taking advantage of. I’ve been really considering getting into shape and shedding all this excess fat and blub. My ultimate goal is to get down to at least 130 lbs (which is a healthy weight for my height). Needless to say, I’m excited that I’m doing something good for myself. Finally. It took me this long to do it, but better late than never.

Yay!

My financial aid paperwork finally went through for school. So incredibly happy about that. The deadline for paperwork send ins, I think were in August. So, 2 more months until I can officially start school. 2 years after I start, I should have my psychology degree and then move out of this fucking house for good. It’s a shame it took me all this time to realize what I wanted to do with my life; but I’m finally at the point where I’m ready to move on and be someone who is happy with their career. When I was a kid, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher. But, as I got older… that all changed. I knew I wanted to help people and help them become better people themselves. So, psychology was my ideal thing to go for.

My ultimate goal is to finally have a doctorate’s. But, as of right now.. because of my past.. I have to settle for an associate’s degree.

Contest Winner!

Omigawd. I actually won something. Allakhzam is running a contest until May 7th and they’re giving out Everquest 2 goodies. Here’s my winning e-mail:

By posting a whole crap load on their EQ2 forums, I was able to win. I actually selected the 60 day subscription thingie, since I already have the last expansion. ~does happy dance~ And here I thought that I never win anything. Teehee. I was in a miserable mood all day because of my pain and this actually made me really happy.
