Once again, no real news.
No update on the situation with my exam results
No Job
No real journies out of the house…

– Have started driving lessons again, but the teacher is a bit of a weeb, im only really staying with him because he has a good car which is easy to drive.

– Coming towards the end of anime ‘one outs‘ m still enjoying it. It really is alot like kaiji (which is also enjoyed)

– League of legends seems to have died down recently, i guess people are starting to get bored of it, i suppose there is only so many ways you can push a lane and use 4 skills. Saying that, most of the key players have been offline recently so maybe thats the only reason. 5v5 premades really are a completely different game to solo or 3v3’s

– Spurred on by boyce, Ive started playing WoW again (wuh oh). Currently level 12 on Frostmane EU server. I actually picked a mage again, despite already having one… I did consider rogue or hunter, but at the end of the day nothing really beats a class that has good damage, survivability, the ability to create food/drink and is able to teleport to all major cities instead of taking public transport (hell, i can even jump off cliffs with the aid of slow fall)

– Alien Swarm – Free on PC via steam, is actually an awesome game, It can be easily compared to a top down alien version of left 4 dead and its good stuff, alot of fun and you really need abit of teamwork to be able to survive (on higher difficulties anyway). It also has a persistent unlock system which is pretty cool.

– Oh, i saw Inception last week. Its a pretty damn sweet film. Something like a cross between the matrix and oceans 11. Really worth a watch.

No news = No posts :

Really not a whole lot going on recently in my life, I went jobhunting and got an interview, waiting to hear back from them , been out a few times for lunch/dinner, went to collect my mum from the airport this morning (she’s been in HK for the past 2 weeks), uhh…. drove to the supermarket today to buy lots of food?…

Really, really nothing much happening.

Oh, i did complete Red Dead Redemption (main story), and its really good, like.. everything about that game is awesome. (oh. aside from one of the challenges having to be to kill 2 cougars with melee knife, that shit is infuriating because they just knock you down and kill you instantly pretty much)
Aside from the red dead, ive been getting in some practice on SSF4 , but im still really bad with the arcade stick, cant get off ultras and stuff consistently yet.
Ive also been playing Monkey Island 2 : Lechucks Revenge (SE), and thats pretty amazing. The great voice acting really helps add to the already brilliant script in the game.
And then theres League of Legends obviously,we’re all around level 15 now and ive played ~90 games, which probably average at around 30-40mins each. Crazy timesink but its still alot of fun – i cant actually work out why its still so much fun, we usually play the same chars and they have the same 4 skills and buy the same items each game, there is pretty much only 1 map with 2 colour choices…. I dunno. Still fun though.

Also, its hot as hell recently, hard to even sleep without a fan blowing in your face constantly

Back home for the summer (2010 edition)

And so, year 2 of university finishes.

Packing yesterday took bloody forever, I had no idea I had so much junk.
The ride home was long, about 2.5 hours. But now im back, and i celebrated by playing some SSFIV and Red Dead Redemption ( which looks fantastic on our HDTV, compared to the SDTV at unihouse – yay for being able to read the text)

Id like to say that now i can relax more and stuff, but the reality is probably the opposite.
I need to get out there and find a job
I need to hope i havent failed my degree
I need to get a few driving lessons before my driving test mid august
And probably a bunch of other shit which i can’t think of right now.

On the plus side, should still have lots of time for late night League of legends (of which we still could use 2 good players to make an arranged group of 5) , and im going on holiday to New York at the end of August, which should be awesome.
