Macaroni & cheese will never not be a go-to food when I'm stumped on ideas for meals.

I'm super glad exists, seriously. I've heard of a lot of these games, but never played them as a child because our family was more console-oriented. (I was probably too young to play anything other than Lemmings or Dr. Brain games anyway.) I like having the chance to play these games and check out what people are talking about. I just nabbed the Wing Commander series to give it a shot. Also Mark Hamill is in the games too, and I wanna see that.

I'm thinking about trying to get more recent games on GOG too. I don't know if anyone else has the same problem, but Steam can really clog up my computer sometimes. I don't have a gaming optimized laptop, so just opening Steam can be a trial for me. Games that are DRM free are such a turn on.

I really should be reformatting my hard drive, but I'm hesitant. My laptop originally came with Windows Vista installed, but I received a free upgrade to Windows 7 and used that. I don't know where I put the upgrade disk anymore, though. I'm afraid of reformatting and ending up with Vista again. That would really, really suck.

I'll have to go hunting for it again sometime.

I hope everyone had a good New Year Day!

I don't really have any New Year's resolutions or anything, but I do need to write or draw more things this year. I'm getting really out of practice. :T

I ended up spending quite a bit of money on the Steam Christmas sale, but the game I'm looking forward to playing is Darksiders. It looks pretty fun, it's another one of those games that uses Biblical characters and whatever. I hope it plays well enough on my laptop.

The one game that took me by surprise this sale was The Binding of Isaac. I've played Super Meat Boy and didn't like it so much, probably because it's ridiculously challenging. But Isaac is a lot more fun to play, even though it's still stupidly difficult. I just like experimenting with all the pills and stuff.

I also finally got LIMBO. That game is super atmospheric, wow. Kinda freaky, too. (THE SPIDER. THE BRAIN BUGS.) The design style just adds to the whole thing. Love it.

My goal is to finish these games, damn it. I need to stop starting games and leaving them hanging. I'm pretty sure the last game I finished was El Shaddai. 8|a

Hello, all! I am just shooting a reminder that I'm trickster over at Dreamwidth. All my entries imported over there just fine, so now you can't even tell I haven't used it in a year! Aha.

I didn't import over comments, though. I think comments come over as OpenIDs and I wasn't sure if it was kosher for me to do that without anyone else's permission. So, commentless entries. But entries nonetheless!

And now for something completely different.

Meanwhile, it's nice to chill out at work and listen to Chrono Cross music. I've always liked the soundtrack, but I'm appreciating it much more now. I wonder if that's because of nostalgia or something?

Finally got a big project and a presentation done. It's so conflicting to have a kind-hearted professor who is just a mess when it comes to teaching. She's a good person! Just. Maybe needs to time manage a little better. And communicate with us. And return papers, please. We'd love to have returned papers. It's not cool to get a weird score and not know why.

Doodled SS!Zelda everywhere on my notes the other day. Her character design is so cute, sob. /)_(\

Okay, back to work.

Draw a character in the outfit you're currently wearing.

Zelda, from Skyward Sword, wearing... gym pants.

Very comfortable.

I miss having a large mirror in my room. I moved it out because my room is too small to accommodate a dresser that big, and it's been almost a year since then. I still miss it. Sure, it was vaguely horrifying to see my messy, sleepy self right after I wake up. But you know what makes up for it? Cute underwear. It never fails to cheer me up.

There's nothing like looking down at your crotch and reading the cheerful phrase, "I love you! ♥" first thing in the morning.

In other news, I still don't quite know what kind of costume to get for Halloween. Since the date falls on a Monday, which is a class day, a few classmates and I agreed to come in costume. They seem to be all set with what they want to be -- they already started sewing a while ago -- but I'm still in the indecisive phase of it all.

At this rate, I'm just going to go in a white sheet and call it good.

It's been a while since I posted anything here and I completely blame it on laziness. I'd blame it on having a Plurk, but I haven't been doing much of that either. Yes, yes, I finally got one. It's not too bad, I guess. I can totally see why people have a Plurk, but... it's kind of super inconvenient for a blabbermouth like me! I'm a little self-conscious about babbling on Plurk because the notification thing keeps pinging and stuff.

ANYWAY the real reason for this post is to link the PIAPRO blog post for KAITO's birthday. It's too cuuuute! I swear, one day, I will get one of those little Nendoroids. Also the blurred out phone strap about halfway down the page... is that what his Append will look like? It looks like he's going sleeveless! But it seems a little different from the silhouette at the very bottom, so who knows. I'm a little excited. (>w<)

Ahhh... back to procrastinating tags. |D;;

...therefore, I shall post.

Ky Kiske again, but this time it's a coloring of a doujinshi panel. Image. Box. Thing.

Yeah. I'm on my Winter Break, can't you tell? 8D

Uh. Not very big images, but I was using a tutorial and managed to mess that up a little and ended up winging it halfway through. I did learn a new way to use the brushes, so that was cool! It's just a little time-consuming. It'd probably help if I actually programmed commands into the tablet, though. /idiot

Colored edit on the left, original on the right. )

SHADING IS STILL MY NEMESIS and I also totally half-assed the background, if it wasn't obvious. ONE DAY I WILL MAKE A DECENT BACKGROUND but not now.

I saw the Professor Layton and the Unwound Future commercial on TV today. Thought it was kinda cute.

Still need to get the game, but I'm debating whether to get that or Last Window -- the Hotel Dusk sequel. It doesn't look like Last Window is heading to the US, so maybe I'll nab that first.

Finally got Dissidia. Favorite voices so far: Cecil, Golbez, and Onion Knight. Least favorite so far: Cloud and Squall. I know they're supposed to sound kinda tough or cool, but they just end up being really flat to me. idk if that's on purpose or not. At least Squall sounds younger in English than he does in Japanese; I've seen some complaints that he sounds too old for his age.

Also, Cloud's lines tend to be Shatner'd. Kind of annoying. Stop channeling Yuna, Cloud.

Tidus' voice is both less obnoxious and yet still irritating. Also, how does anyone use him? I just have the worst timing when it comes to pulling off his moves. :T

I'll probably end up using Cecil as my main.

Jecht manages to beat me very soundly, very often.

Finally ordered a new tablet. Can't wait to use it; I think I've really lost my touch at drawing. I don't like the way any of my doodles turn out at all, lately.

Applied for graduation this spring. Here's hoping I can pull it off!

Uuuughghghgh, I don't know if I have a sensitive nose or what but. Whoever teaches the class before JUST 360 has some serious odor problems. It bothers me to no end and lingers for the longest time (or I just get used to the smell, whichever comes first). The worst part is that the room is full of windows that can't be opened. It's like a trap or something.

I have suddenly gone back to revisiting Final Fantasy stuff (primarily 7~10). I blame Pixiv and my stupid, stupid curiosity. From Pixiv it's a slippery slope to Nicodouga so I ended up watching a bunch of stupid Dissidia MADs. The ones I liked in particular were pretty much just someone taking the audio clips and messing with them. I am a sucker for those.

Links under the cut. )

Anyhow. This is TGS week, right? Sounds like there's quite a few games already announced. New Ace Attorney Investigations and another Dissidia. The third Professor Layton is already out too, isn't it? I'll need to get that.

Ahhhh... I have no life. orz

It's been a while.

Actually, I've been back from Korea for a month now. I just. Keep forgetting to update this journal.

Starcraft II in... three days, is it? Looking forward to that.

Been incredibly lazy lately.

Need to get a new tablet.

So, uh... back to normal, I guess. Hi! How've you guys been?

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh, crap. I have to go to work tomorrow morning but I stayed up until 4am playing BlazBlue of all things. I WILL clear all the story modes, damn it.

Why did time pass by so quickly? D:
