Hello fellow people who probably don’t read this anymore. I am going to have to start spamming this out to people again. Anyways, I am finally back to update after a 3 month hiatus. Life was all sorts of crazy in the past months. I’ll try to go over as much as I can before I forget it all.
First, the big news. I am dis-engaged. Kelli and I decided that there might be more in life for us each other. It was a mutual thing and we are staying friends and talking, but not getting back together any time soon. This happened about 3 weeks ago, so I’m doing allright now. Let’s just say I bought lots of video games and I have already plowed through half of them. Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, yeah life goes on.
I did get some new electronics as well. I got myself a new 42″ HDTV that supposedly supports 1080p. A new Acer Desktop. Quad Core Processor at 2.5, 8 gigs of RAM, 1280 gigs of HDD, an nVidia 9800GT card that supports DX10. Mmmm. And all that for $1500. And the cream of the crop was Kelli ended getting me a Christmas present too. A PS3! My electronic paradise is at fruition. I already went out and bought some new games too.
Prince of Persia (Xbox)
Gears of War 2 (Xbox)
Fable 2 (Xbox)
Last Remnant (Xbox)
Infinite Undiscovery (Xbox)
Little Big Planet (PS3)
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (PS3)
Rachet and Clank: Up your arsenal (PS3)
Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3)
And not a single Wii game!
I’ve already beaten: Uncharted, Rachet and Clank, Prince of Persia, Gears 2, and Fable 2. Mmm. Happy. I actually beat most of those over the past 4 days. Lots of fun, lots of good stories. All in all very enjoyable week considering recent events. The TV looks great with all the equipment too. My room has changed quite a bit. I will get pictures up soon I hope.
I’ve not been getting anywhere with my modeling. I did go out and buy a book on 3DS and it goes over the basics of character animation. So I’m trying to get through this right now. (I haven’t even made it past the modeling section. I still need to do the rigging and skinning before I get to the animating.) I came to a realization while doing this book though. I can’t do the modeling aspect of this. All my models will be cartoony and dispoportioned because I don’t have that eye for detail to make them look realistic enough. So I’m hoping I get to do the animation parts then.
I got to see Alexa last night. That was good. Although she put video games in front of me and I became mildly distracted. She is definitely one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met. I always find myself intrigued by everything she says. Is that weird? Maybe. But I’m strangely comfortable with that.
I haven’t seen too many friends lately, and it’s been terribly hard to adjust to not being able to call someone 24/7 with the reassurance of that person always answering and not avoiding my calls. Meh. I’m needy. Which is why I am probably back on the internets now. Seriously, if anyone wants to game at all, hit me up for it.

I also have Brawl codes if someone wants to share. I like playing with people so join me! That sounds gross. Anywho. That’s all I’ve got. I’ll try to get more stuff up one day.
