Finally, post #3! Phew!
Sup peeps! Sorry for the long lull ~ Real life took my online life and kicked it in the snatch :/ It’s definitely been crazy! Been getting new training, trying to navigate around the office politics, praying my stuff passes and we’re good, and balancing social time with me time. Another reason I was away was because my training buddy who had been with me from day 1 was fired earlier and it was a big shock not only to me but to everyone who knew him. The reasoning they gave us was bull shit because we knew him and he was not like that person they painted. When we were able to meet up with my TB, he said he had no idea why he was fired. They just gave him a letter that said your services are no longer needed and said gtfo. He asked what we all heard and we told him what information we were given but that we’ll keep our ears open for the truth. I don’t wanna get too in depth but from what we sniffed out, he was thrown under the bus because of someone else’s (someone higher up in the food chain) error :/ Which is really stupid because he was a brilliant scientist. They fucked up on that one. Had he a different supervisor, things would have definitely been different. >:/
Gah, sorry. Burning rage seeping from my pores. For all those that are curious, he’s doing ok. He’s lived here in the city for a while so he’s got friends here. Also he has a second job that he can go back to being full time on so at least monetary wise, he’s good!
Let’s turn this to something more light! Um, I did get an AC for all of those who were interested in my earlier journal post. However, it wasn’t the one I ordered. Instead, I bought one at a store and dragged that sucker onto a bus before hauling it to my apartment. It was quite an amazing feat. I attribute 6 days of not sleeping right to that insane decision. As I told my friends, when that Friday turned to night, and I was staring at my thermostat reading of 83*F (humidity 98%), I made the conscious decision that either there will be an AC in this room tomorrow, or I will die. There will be no 7th night of shit sleep. And bam! No 7th night of bad sleep!
But that’s because I was drunk on Nightquil/NyQuil? See, after I got the AC home and I got it installed all by my lonesome self (my dad was on facetime but that doesn’t really help xD He was just there to make sure I didn’t kill myself haha!), I felt a tingle in my throat. It wasn’t a good tingle. It was a “you’ve just now taken the first steps to having a full blown cold” tingle.
Me: …are you fucking kidding me?
So, while I was still in my slightly still healthy state, I crawled out into the sun and grabbed some Nightquil and fluids from CVS. Then I retreated home, drank that shit, turned my AC on, and enjoyed my cold in blissful cool air that would make penguins jelly ~ Thankfully the cold left pretty quick. But I was in a drugged haze all Sunday so I didn’t get much done xD
Anime/manga-wise…I’ve finally started to watch the rest of Amnesia again. My crunchyroll app for my tv finally got fixed so all the episodes show up instead of 5! I’m right now on the Ikki arc. And let me just say, Brother got all the hos wanting his wee wee, man. I also bought the PSP game! I randomly came across it on amazon and that’s when it knew it was a sign to start playing otome games. I’ll probably not understand half of what’s going on but at least I can melt as I listen to the voice actors and enjoy the visuals <3
My subscription with Sylph and Lala are almost up. I’m heading in the city today to nenew Sylph subscription because please. (*ﾟωﾟ*) I won’t be renewing Lala. Nothing was really doing it for me :< With Sylph I attacked that thing while waiting for the train. With Lala, …no. I mean, there are series I like in Lala but I’ll just wait until the tankoubon comes out. (and really, all I wanted from Lala were the freebies xD). So instead, I’ll switch my subscription for one with Aria. I randomly came across the July issue and I definitely liked what I saw. I started at a good time because the July issue had 2 new series and the August issue is supposed to have 2 more!
Since I’m dropping Lala, I’m also dropping Lala DX and instead picking up The Hana to Yume. Thanks to @omarissiter, I was able to get the “renewal” magazine and damn…it was good <3 So much one-shot goodness :3 So much that I must order more. Plus, since it’s a quarterly magazine, I won’t be too overwhelmed by getting so many mags in one go!
So here’s the deal:
- Sylph (will blog about)
- Aria (blog about new stuff, show off front pages of other stuff since I have no idea what’s going on with those series)
- The Hana to Yume (use mostly for random translation projects. Probably won’t blog about)
- B’s Log Comic (my crack. Won’t blog about unless requested)
And that’s about it ~ I’m trying to catch up with Sylph before I go and work on Natsume Tid-Bits :3 This way, we can get it all in one go. Also, no Shounen Oujo in the newest issue of Sylph because of Uta no Prince-sama :< Le sigh!
*jumps on a toaster and flies away ~*
Oh, and remind me to tell you all about the wee wee on the train experience I had! My friends had a good laugh about that.
*now flies away*
