Back from hiatus!

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.

    Wow! You really have had a lot going on. Sorry I didn’t get to see you Xmas Eve. Hopefully Justin will be having a Brawl night on Sunday and we can catch up then. It may be earlier to call out that you’ll never do modeling though I certainly would call out that I’ll never hack on Compilers. Who knows what the future holds, eh?

    I also feel like I should have more of an opinion on the whole Kelli thing but I don’t. She has avoided becoming Kelli Kelley though which is maybe good. Generally, I don’t know much about you two and whether or not you like it that way I assume it’s fine. I’m glad it’s mutual at least.

    I’m glad you’re in Electronic Utopia. I’m actually back in time on my Lenovo X200 playing Knights of the Old Republic so I think I trump you in the quest of ultimate lameness.

    And I’d also generally agree that Lex is one of the most fascinating people I’ve ever met. Is she still in town? Hmm…
