|So I'm bored
So I'm bored, its 8am, my sleeping pattern dictates that as I went to sleep when it was dark, that I can only sleep for 4 hours, I have no MMORPG in my life atm, so nothing to engross myself in, I've been trying to play some 1 player games that I have and they just aren't holding my attention. Burning cd's and moving files around is fufilling and the work I'm doing on sorting out the mess that is our collection is going well... but the fufilment comes from finishing a task, not watching numbers click down. I'm going to America in 3 days so I don't want to download and use the free 2 week trial of RF Online, I've left my copy of WOW in the states and subscription is out (and have no desire to play it anyway), D+D Online looks boring and again, i don't want to use my free month up. Pirates of the Burning Sea has not yet graced me with a Beta Key (bastards) and I don't feel like watching anything.
I need a new single player game or non payable game to engross me, any ideas anyone? Current Mood: bored

So, I hate updating in this thing, but this week there seems to be a lot of unhappyness around and I feel the need to send out some hugs.
Tsietisin comes first on this list, Its a horrible thing to lose a loved one and most of the time while others around you can't help you, they can be here for you, and I hope you know we all are mate.
Poesraven is having a bit of a down month at the moment, school work and I think to be honest, trying to maintain the hard slog till the end of term and thus the end of school life till now is getting to her, a lot of people fall down in that last semister, they know they can graduate with what they have, and it takes a lot of motivation and courage to carry on that slog right till the end. I love you baby, you can do it.
Homer the resident eating machine here at the flat has just had an operation yesterday and now has an anti lick cone around his head, anyone whos ever seen a cat with one on can understand when I say he's not in the best of moods, besides feeling sorry for himself in general - having your 270 vision suddenly cut to 45 is very hard for him - so hugs to you homer.
For anyone else whos having a lousy week, just remember your friends are here for you, we may not be able to do much to help, but we feel with you, don't be afraid to cry on our shoulders - its really not a problem. Current Mood: sympathetic

Its finally the week leading into xmas and what a relief its going to be to get to saturday. I've been working as much overtime this last two months as I can get my hands on in order to deal with Boyracer Landlord's taking most of the kitchen and living room with him, with Poesraven's visit, xmas and a whole load of extra costs, this has cumulated with me working 16 days non stop and this week will see me end up working a 65 hour week in 5 and a bit days, thats pratically double a normal working week for me, as you can imagine I'm a little tired. Thankfully the ever thoughtful Tsietisin has been making a point of doing little bits of shopping for me, making me coffee when he knows I'm getting up etc, all despite suffering from a serious of bugs and infections which thankfully I've managed to avoid for the most part. So this is a big
THANK YOU TSIETISIN...............................
shoutout. Current Mood: thankful

So as normal for a Monday Morning, I was woken up at 6am by something so random I'm not even sure what it was, but after being unable to get back to sleep I decided to jump on and check a price out for a game my brother wants for xmas. Two hours later and thanks to the joys of internet shopping I think I have everything (xmas wise) for everyone (even something for poesraven05(and yes I must learn how to link)) bar one picture frame for my sister. All without the effort of moving from my chair. To make things even better I found gifts for everyone that were not only probebly cheaper but being as I'm not the sort of person who can stand in a crowd and look at things while children are running round, screaming etc etc around me, I was able to make relaxed choices. Current Mood: accomplished

You scored 53 Wisdom, 81 Tactics, 47 Guts, and 46 Ruthlessness!
|Roman military and political leader. He was instrumental in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. His conquest of Gallia Comata extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, introducing Roman influence into what has become modern France, an accomplishment of which direct consequences are visible to this day. In 55 BC Caesar launched the first Roman invasion of Britain. Caesar fought and won a civil war which left him undisputed master of the Roman world, and began extensive reforms of Roman society and government. He was proclaimed dictator for life, and heavily centralized the already faltering government of the weak Republic. Caesar's friend Marcus Brutus conspired with others to assassinate Caesar in hopes of saving the Republic. The dramatic assassination on the Ides of March was the catalyst for a second set of civil wars, which marked the end of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Roman Empire under Caesar's grand-nephew and adopted son Octavian, later known as Caesar Augustus. Caesar's military campaigns are known in detail from his own written Commentaries (Commentarii), and many details of his life are recorded by later historians such as Suetonius, Plutarch, and Cassius Dio. |

Well, I'm currently sat at a desk in a townhouse in Southern Florida while my finacee is chatting to one of the room mates upstairs. All is going well and we've made some very good progress on final plans for her moving to england next year. I always feel a mild sense of dread coming to see her everytime I do and always a strong sense of sadness when I leave, which makes both sides of a visit pretty yucky, but at the moment I know all this effort for both of us is worth it. Back next wednesday *touch wood in regards to the awful airline I've used this time* and tbh, i'm not quite sure how I'll deal with going back to what seemed like normal life when I do, though no doubt after a few days it will all blur together.

After New York, Madrid and the rest London has finally been hit, we've all secretly feared it would happen and now it has.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those both directly and indirectly effected by this.

Is it worth me reinstalling Guild Wars?
I brought it a few weeks ago - played it for about 4 hours, the graphics are nice enough, the missions that I did seemed O.K, but the lack of any interaction got me bored straight away, however I didn;t really go into the PVP side of it.
I'm currently into WOW (but no where near as much), HL2 Deathmatch but mainly BF2 Demo atm.

|Homer and the Hamsters
So, this morning, for the second time since I moved in, the hamsters (both of them this time) pulled the amazing Hamster escaping act again, though this time they stayed near the cage. I had Homer the cat with me at the time and it was only when Homer left to watch the Hamster cage (his usual pass time in my room before he settles down) that I noticed that Homer was behaving in an unusual manner, this was due to him spotting the hamsters were out and obviously trying to decide which one was going to be his first hamster meal of the day. Luckly I caught him before he jumped and removed him while I put the hamsters back in. But once again, how they got out (the cage was secure when I checked it) is beyond me.... In other news its been two months since I moved in, things are still going good, though I seem to have got over the initial lets keep everything spotless routine I was in and have been letting things slacken a bit meaning poor Tsietisin
has been doing a bit more than he should, something I need to put right. My sleeping routine is still a little fubar but its getting better as time goes by. Current Mood: confused

OMG - its soooooo hot at the flat today, I've had to draught in *no pun intended* my freestanding fan from my parents house just to be able to go in my room (I catch the sun from around midday onwards.)

|Which Carebear are you?
Current Mood: sleepy
You are usually asleep on the job but that's okay because your job is to make sure everyone gets enough sleep! You're shy and sweet...when you are actually awake! Getting sleepy already?

|Money and jobs
For the first time in ages, having moved in with Tsietisin's
I am having to start looking after the money I bring in with a bit more care than I used too. Where as normally I would check my balance every other week and could afford to pay off any large credit card bills in one go, I am now finding myself paying more attention and thinking about how to generate more cash and reduce back my budget.
Unfortually as a tennager I never considered going into higher education prefering the route of working my way up through experience, however the all the jobs I have worked now have been either boring, or badly paid. Now the routes open to me are
1. To progress into supermarket managment with Tesco
2. Find a job that either pays well, or will if I pursue advancement in it (Still to find such a job)
3. Go back into higher education and use up 4 years of my life to do this (despite not really knowing what to do anyway)
I think the main issue I have is confidence in myself and my abilitys, I hate being a cancerian...
Any ideas/suggestions anyone? Current Mood: contemplative
