The Ramblings of a Lonely Crazy Person
I’m trying to change my sleeping schedule, so I’m exhausted right now. With a little over eight hours until I can pass out though, I think it would be best to do the journal entry for this week now rather than later.

I realized that last week’s entry left a few things out when talking about Primal. First, the manual spoils some details of the story. From the way things played out in the game, it seemed several of those points were supposed to be surprises. All I could think when I came across those moments was that I read about it in the manual. The moments weren’t overly dramatic or anything, but they probably would have had more impact if I hadn’t already known what they were. Second thing was the glitches. Although weird and funny, they happen too often. Thankfully switching characters is possible so a restart isn’t always needed (I was afraid to save if a glitch was happening). The first glitch happened when I was just a few hours into the game. I was doing something to solve a puzzle, and the world disappeared. I was supposed to go down some stairs into a new area, but couldn’t see them, so I went by the map, which didn’t help in the slightest, then I got frustrated and switched characters. With the second character, I went down the stairs and ran into a cutscene, after which I switched characters to see if I should restart the game. Turns out the glitch became fixed somehow. I’m not sure if it is a glitch, but the camera will also go through walls sometimes, which blocks the player’s view of what is going on. Kinda important to be able to see in the middle of a fight. Thirdly, and lastly, there is this scene selection thing for the game. It makes it easy to go back and play from certain points in the game and functions a little bit like chapter select on a dvd would. I didn’t particularly like it due to it not saving my items very well, but it is a nice feature, and not one I had seen before playing Primal.

One of the longest internet friends I’ve had invited me to meet him. Sort of. He says he might get a promotion, and if he does then he wants to build a house, and when he’s done building it he wants me to visit him. The first thing that crossed my mind was excitement. I really want to get out of this house for an extended amount of time. The second thing that came to mind was that although he’s a very good friend that I trust, I still don’t know him that well. Most people in the world are good people and don’t intend harm on others, but what if he’s one of the other types? And the third thing squashed any hope of me going out into the world. We don’t live in the best neighborhood and my room mate would freak out if I left the house for a long time without him and I wasn’t nearby. Plus, I’m the one that cares for the pets. He’d either have a hard time, or not know how to handle things without me. Then theres the years of being told the world is scarey and terrible things happen in it all the time. I think I’m partially brainwashed. Terrified to be out on my own :/ I don’t want to spoil my friend’s happiness though, so I think I’ll keep all this to myself for now. If he builds a house, it would probably take a year or more. Maybe he’ll forget about his invitation to meet him by then?

Also, I have a bit of a bone to pick with my room mate again. First, he bought a tablet and completely refuses to tell me exactly how much it cost smilies/icon_stare.gif Annoying, but not quite the problem I had with him this week. The first day he had it, we sat down for dinner and he was using it to watch tv, because when dinner was done he was in the middle of watching something. Which is fine, I guess, but I tried to talk to him and all he did was make his “I’m annoyed” breathing sound. I just wanted to know if his dinner was good… So, I got mad at him for being annoyed at me because I talked to him. We ended up not speaking to one another for the rest of the night. It’s the first time we’ve done that in a long time. I didn’t like it at all. It felt lonelier than usual smilies/icon_sad.gif

The other thing that made me annoyed at my room mate is that I asked him to cook and his face was like smilies/icon_gonk.gif I didn’t want to burn or undercook his food. Besides, I have been cooking and washing dishes for the past few weeks without a single complaint. He had an issue with helping once in all this time? smilies/icon_stare.gif Or was I interrupting his show? I’m not all that sorry that I wanted both of us to eat and to enjoy our food.

And that’s about all I can stand this week. I might actually take a nap now. I don’t think I can make it another seven hours. It only took me an hour to type this? I think my typing speed might be increasing emotion_smilies/icon_awesomeface.gif
