no, just OMFG. Seriously. I haven't updated since I came to University. And holy f*ck. I've pretty much been having the time of my life. Regardless of the fact that I'm supposed to studying and working on my homework. BUT f*ck THAT YOLO or some sh*t. Actually, no I'm joking. I am studying very hard since I'm still kinda not really sleeping but that just means I have more time in a day.
As the title says. I managed to finish NaNoWriMo in 3 days this year. Not just that. I've so far managed over 100k on the story I've been writing and another 30k on a fanfiction because pokemon y/x THE FEELS #FEELS I CAN'T #NO
I love the fact that this is my 5th year straight doing NaNoWriMo and this time I just destroyed my old records. I think the furthest I'd gone in a month is 40k. In an entire month. I look back now and I cringe. How is it that this year I just demolished it. I wrote in 3 days what I couldn't in a month and I'm still going. I don't even like where this story is going.
I also have to point out I think I managed it this year primarily because I was procrastinating on my Philosophy essay. I thought it was due on the 7th and I told myself I would finish it on my break, lol no hahaha I make myself laugh I decided instead a story must be written and needed to be done the last few days of my break no matter the consequence. More giggles because I forgot it was even November. I had a really good idea, okay?
I'm very happy with University. My classes could stand to be a little smaller. I mean 200+ students in a single room makes it very difficult to learn anything. So far its okay. I'm doing fairly well in my studies, not as well as I'd like but it is a new environment and the pacing is very different from College so there is some getting used to. I mean, there are sixty people on my floor. I know the vast majority. I've conceded to the fact that there are some I will never know BUT I like my floor regardless of the fact that almost everyone is pretty much a year to 5 years younger than I am. I'm on an upper year floor so guess how that makes me feel! Pretty good, I like struttin' my age around.
I'm on the 10th floor (top) of the second largest residence building on campus. I have a BEAUTIFUL view. At this point I wouldn't give it up at gun point because I've just fallen in love with everything here.
In University, I've gone to my first concert. I've gone to some pretty cool open mic karaoke nights, I go out pretty often, I've gone to my first NHL game courtesy of Reality Fallacy, I've gone to a convention, once again thanks to RF. Like, how awesome right?
I go on daily walks, I've lost weight, I eat pretty well and I'm fairly happy right now. I think I'm the first person who went to University and gained a better lifestyle than what they had at home. That's pretty sad. Forget I said that.
I was going to do my Halloween Game reviews this year but the only game I was going to talk about was the indie game Outlast which is phenomenal and if you have a strong stomach I highly recommend it because omg I lovelovelove it.
On the other hand, I didn't do it this year because I was so excited by Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. Which in trailers and screenshots looked like it would be the most terrifying thing on the entire planet.
And then it wasn't. It's extremely uncommon for me to be disappointed by a game this much. It just doesn't happen. I can usually appreciate what a game has to offer. I even liked maybe one part of Knights of Ratatosk. A Machine for Pigs was, well... Not what I had expected. Nor did I like it. When following an act like The Dark Descent, it's not just environment that makes a good horror game. After about halfway through the game, I had pretty much just given up on experiencing the absolute terror I had in the original. It felt a lot more like I was reading a scary novel in a haunted house. I didn't mind the game being so text heavy. I enjoyed it but the environment never actually harmed me. Ever. As opposed to DD when you walked down a gooey hallway of darkness and suddenly horrible gooey goo starts slapping you like you're its b*tch and you scream.
The game just wasn't what I wanted and I didn't enjoy it. This caused me to not do days to Halloween review.
NEXT YEAR AMIRITE?
I had another point to this whole debacle but hahaha story got in the way. And since I have class, i better get my ass moving.
