Vacation almost over

Time really does fly when you are free. Soon my three and a half weeks of vacation will be over, I start working again on Wednesday. It’s been pretty nice not having to go up so early and I’ve had as couple of late nights and I didn’t realize how much had missed this. But alas all things must come to an end, and I’m somewhat looking forward to starting working again. Mostly because I’ll get out of the apartment more than I have under my vacation. I have gotten out quite a bit in the first week of vacation, buy then I’ve mostly stayed home and have been taking it easy and lazy.
It was nice being lazy for once.

I’m still searching for a new apartment, I have a few I’ve show interest in so I hope the will pick me to check them out. Then I’ll just have to hope I get one of them. I really want to move now, I want a bigger apartment so I can rearrange my stuff better.
I want a kitchen I can sit and eat in, I want a real bedroom so I don’t have to have everything in the living room as things are now. And hopefully later people can stay over if they want, and if I’ll let them off course. ;)
In looking forward to actually hang some posters/paintings up, right now I have nothing on the walls. Mostly so I don’t have to fix anything when I leave the current apartment. I really want my hobby and life to show where I live, right now there is nothing of that. I like games, I like cartoons and I want that to show. If people don’t like it can handle it that is their problem not mine, I’m not ashamed of what I like.
And if I do meet a special someone, they have to accept this part of me too.

I’m hoping to get some other furnishers then I finally move to, some more shelves for the games and hobbies. I hope my economy will let me start retro collecting soon, but before that can happen I need the older consoles first. Well I don’t really need them first, but I want to have them first do I can start playing as soon as I get some games, but that is for another post. I’m hoping I’ll be able to see Ant-man in about two weeks, when it has finally premiered here in Sweden.

Other than focusing on work and looking for a new place to live, the coming months will be filled of games for me, so at least I’ll have that. And if I’ll be moving hopefully it will be done in the coming thee months, and then there will be no money left for anything else. Moving is expensive, especially when you end up with double rent.
But it’s only for a month or so, just have to hold out. Things will be better later.
All in all I’ve had a great vacation starting home and taking it easy, next year I might be ready for some more action. Hopefully I’m in better shape next year to, hope I can start going to the gym again soon. Everything depends on the economy, but at least I haven’t had any soda for a week now, yes it’s a big deal actually. And I’ve only eaten soon candy that I’ve had at home, I have not bought anything new. So now I want to get in form, I really want to regain the weight I had 15 years ago.

Some stuff and a new banner

I’ve had wonderful time with my vacation, it was well needed. And I’ve managed to get a somethings done so that’s even better. But tomorrow its back to work, but I could definitely have had some more vacation days. Haha, well I suppose I shouldn’t be greedy. Having easter of was more than enough. The first day I was incredible lazy. I only watched TV and caught up with some shows and animes I’ve missed and it was great. Finally back on track there. Honestly I almost felt bad of how good, doing nothing was. After that it was time to finish of some games I had lying around. And that’s probably what I’ll do today, if I feel better. Came down with something yesterday, that really made me feel like shit. Vomiting and just feeling, sick. Ugh. Hopefully it will feel better later today.

There where two games I finished before I had my easter vacation, but it was so close to it so I thought I’d mention them anyway. Wild Arms 5 was a good game, much better than Wild Arms 4 but I still think I like Wild Arms 3 more personally. Better characters and I like the world more, even the fighting more actually.
The HEX-fighting system is good, but I prefer the games without to be honest.
And right now I am so sick of WA5 battle theme… Sure these things might sound like I’m pissing on the game, but I’m not. I had a very good time with the game, even if I didn’t like everything about it. Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell was a short but fun game, something that I felt I needed after a long JRPG. It is silly, it is over the top. But damn it was enjoyable, even if it was a tad short.

Next up was a game I’ve been eyeing for sometime and it was Metroid: Zero Mission. I have actually never played a Metroid game from start to finish before.
This was such a good game, it felt really great playing it and I really think I needed a game like this. Samus Aran is such a cool lady, kicking space pirates ass and doesn’t afraid of anything. (Old internet meme. Goggle it.)
And last but certainly not least! The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Me and my friend Elden have been playing some Zelda games together in the past, like
A Link To The Past, Skyward Sword and now Wind Waker HD. Such a good game, I was very enjoyable. Guess we’ll see if we will tackle more Zelda games together in future.

And now I’m going to enjoy Final Fantasy Type 0 HD, I’ve just played a few hours on it but I like it so far. I’m just starting on chapter 3. So I’m looking forward to get to know Class Zero even more. Before I leave I just want to thank my good friend Elden for making drawing me! Right now I’m using it in my banner and I really like it! But then again I do enjoy his art and if your interested check it out! He has some really cool stuff. Here is the old chibi art VS the new one, which took some inspiration from the Tales of games. With a bit of his own style thrown into the mix. Hopefully I can get him to make a new one, when I start to loose some weight. Hehe.

Hur mår man egentligen?

Av någon anledning har jag undvikit att gå till doktorn, kan väl ha med att göra att jag haft lite misstro till dem. Då de aldrig hjälpt mig så mycket när jag var yngre och hade behövt hjälp, en annan sak är väl att jag helt enkelt inte gillar det. Jag blir verkligen tvungen att öppna upp mig för någon och berätta precis allt, hur jobbigt det än är och det är väl just det som tar mycket på mig. Men det var givande med de saker jag tog upp med doktorn, han lyssnade och antecknade allt och har en teori om vad det är. Om det är det som “felar” så förklarar det en helt del av hur jag mår och är.
Just nu vill jag inte skriva något här, mest för att inget är bekräftat än. Men jag ska återkomma och göra lite fler tester, ni behöver inte vara oroliga dock. Det är inget farligt eller jo kanske, men det beror nog på hur det drabbar person till person.
För min del är det ingen fara om det är som det är nu. Alltid roligt med sådana här, jag ska berätta en sak men ändå säger jag inget texter eller hur?
Nä, jag ville mest säga att de är något på spåret och vi ska följa upp med det och är det som felar, kommer jag berätta. Tror jag kommer må bättre efter det, då jag kommer få den hjälp jag behöver. Plus att som jag då sa, att det är en förklaring till varför jag är som jag är ibland.

I övrigt känns det väl helt okej, just nu åtminstone. Är väl lite glad över att jag inte blev sjukskriven, hade nog börjat klättra på väggarna efter ett tag. Men fasen vad jag längtar till april, då är jag ledig en hel vecka. Det ska bli underbart att få vila ut sig riktigt ordentligt då, då blir det att spela en hel de Final Fantasy Type 0 HD och då även demot på Final Fantasy XV, det ska bli kul. För att inte nämna att jag och min polare ska se klart på andra halvan av The Walking Dead season 5, det är också något jag ser fram emot. Ja, jag ska helt enkelt bara göra saker jag tycker är kul och förhoppningsvis innebär det också att det blir lite sittande vid datorn.

Hade jag haft mer pengar hade jag nog lite smått velat börja samla på tv-spels figurer igen. Hade verkligen velat ha de två Play-Arts figurerna av Rinoa Heartilly och Squall Leonhart från Final Fantasy VIII. Även en figur på Zack Fair från Final Fantasy VII / Crisis Core hade varit grymt att ha. Man får se vad som händer i framtiden, kanske blir det något man kan spara ihop till.

Almost vacation time now!

I’m counting the days! Which are 1½ more days of work and then its finally time to have some vacation time! I’m so looking forward to this, I really feel like I need to get some relax time right about now. Its been pretty busy at work these past weeks, especially when it comes closer to vacation time. We’ve gotten some new folks over the summer that will cover for us that will go on vacation now. And they need to be taught and shown around and there has been some extra work here and there. So yeah, its going to be so good to have 3½ weeks vacation. Vacation, vacation, vacation. =D

In other news that aren’t vacations news. I finished the story of Watch_Dogs last weekend, I more or less wanted to get it out of the way for other games. Since I just play one game at a time. It was an okay game, can’t understand the hype it gets. Sure I had some fun with game, but it still feels like I’ve done it before and better in other games. Minus the “Hacking” segments. Yeah, I thought it was good but far from a GOTY title in my opinion. I could probably go into more detail of what I don’t like and think, but to be completely honesty I don’t really have the energy too do that.
But do I have a title I can consider GOTY so far? I’m not sure actually. While I do love games, I am very picky at the same time and I have a very different taste in games than most people do. I usually don’t fall for the media hyped games, I usually enjoy the ones that gets less attention or just is in a genre I prefer more. So I’m thinking Tales of Xillia 2 could be a potential contender for my GOTY 2014.

Another game that I’ve enjoyed very much so far is Rayman Legends, I think I needed a game like this. Just good old fun and its so nice too look at! Even if I’m not a very big fan of Rayman’s design in general,I don’t know it just doesn’t sit all that well with me. Which might be ironic since I usually like some of the weird stuff, but the design is not important it’s the game in itself and that’s good. It’s charming and I like the games overall design and my first contact was a few play test of Rayman Origins. We’ll see how much time I have for gaming under these upcoming weeks, I really want to leave the house more and travel a bit. I need to get out more and I’m going to go to the gym everyday under my vacation. I’ve been cooped up for too long and I want to enjoy my free time, so we’ll see what happens.

This was a really bad week…

This week has been one hell of a week, it started bad but thankfully it’s gotten better! It would really kick-started my depression and I really don’t want that right now. This is just a rant post, I need to get the negative thoughts out of my head. Firstly it started with my headache, I’ve had it for a few days but Monday-Tuesday where the worst days of it. With nausea and dizziness following the headache. And to top the Monday of even more I got my bicycle stolen outside my home, me and a neighbor or two got ours taken. So that of course added to my already grumpy personality.

Since I’ve more or less have slept this week away, because I could hardly do anything else the headache really took it’s toll on me. I haven’t been able to go too the gym either, so I feel really guilty about that. Yesterday, my keyboard stopped working and I’m low on funds right now to buy something new. So I had to dig out an really old crappy keyboard. Sure this is just whining but still, little stuff adding and adding when you’ve already had a bad week can sometimes make or break everything.
The worst part is that my cellphone is singing its last song and that is really something to be really worried about. I need the phone, to keep track of my meetings, contact people.
The calender is more or less essential in my work since I can sync it with my computer. Those of you who need your phone in your work, knows just how important it is to have it working. So now I need to start looking for a new one, again I don’t have the cash for this right now. And I’m just feeling the pressure of this stuff now, stuff getting stolen, stuff breaking. Why most everything happen at the same time? Give me some time to breathe!

Everything is starting to feel better now, no more headache and I’ve regained my strength and energy. So that feels really good! The feeling you get when you can finally rise from all shitty stuff that has happened is one of the greatest feelings I know. Next week it E3, that a reason too be happy. I’m going to watch it with my friend Elden this year, so that’s going to be really great! I soon have vacations, all together I’m just working nine more days. then I’m just going to chill! So that’s something I’m longing for and I have a whole lot of games I can’t wait to finally have some time too play. Plus I am going to the gym everyday on my vacation, so be sure I keep some form of time table. Or I might accidentally revert back into old ways of living. But in the end, I think everything will be good and workout just fine.

Finally some time off!

Ah! It feels great that its finally easter! That means some time off for most of us in Sweden, and boy it feels good to have some time off. Was even able to sleep a bit longer today, hurray! Waking up at 04:00 at the morning everyday takes some of the energy out of you eventually. So I could sleep to 07:00, Life is good, yes sir!
I wake up so early because work starts at 05:15, and if you are wondering why I’m not using AM and PM is because I can never remember which is what and I prefer a 24-hour clock. In case anyone was wondering, which you probably weren’t.

So with this time off, I am going to do a bunch of stuff I like. Or rather do stuff I haven’t had the energy to do when I’ve come home from work, like catching up on a few movies. Continue to play Tales of Symphonia HD and just enjoy myself, been so looking forward to some me time. I love my work but the past weeks have been tiering, so its really nice to do exactly what I want to do. Often when I get home from work, there are a lot of other stuff that needs to be done, like cocking and whatnot. When all stuff is finished, I never feel like I have the time to sit down and game a few hours, mostly because I go to bed early just to get a decent amount of sleep
So there will be a lot of movie and gaming being done, hopefully in these five days I have free.

I’m currently looking for a bigger apartment and I hope I can find one soon, I really need some more space and having a separate bedroom from the living room and a real (bigger) kitchen would be great. The only downside to moving is that its expensive, all the costs for changing address and stuff like that, not looking forward to those parts, but I’ll gladly do it if I can find a better place. Since I’m single (hello, ladies) I don’t need such a big apartment, I just need a separate bedroom from the living room as I said and I’m pretty pleased. Sure If I can get a place where I can have a washing machine in my apartment that would be great.

Back to normal

Stuff is finally going back to normal, my vacation is over and I started working again this week.
I’m not as dead as I thought I would be. I’m actually holding up pretty well to my own surprise, I thought I was going to be really tired. But, hey! That’s just great, but I’m not going to lie. It feels like hell walking a bunch of stairs again, so out of shape it’s not even funny. Hopefully I can start working on that soon enough.

Still playing Tales of Xillia, I’ve clocked about 52 hours of gametime so far. I am nearing the end but I want to continue to do some sidequests and other stuff. I’m still having a blast with it and it really is one of the best games I’ve played this year. Definitely one of the best games I’ve played this entire year, living up to my every expectation. And exceeding others, so I am more than pleased. Speaking of games, don’t forget to check out my Saints Row IV review over at PSSverige. And next Tuesday (the 27th) you can read my Killer is Dead review on the site.
The embargo ends then and we are free to post it, so check that out and see what I think about it.
