Okay, as much as I love Christmas and having a break from university in the winter months, I've recently started to hate snow. It's okay the first day, but when I have to get to university on a bus that isn't there because it snowed and it's too cold to get in, or my plans are ruined because trains are canceled it really pissed me off. Like Oh my god.


In LIGHTER news, me and my mom made lots of Christmas cookies last night, sugar cookies and gingerbread, and we're going to decorate them today. I'll post some pictures up later, since I made a couple of pretty awesome ones including a T-Rex with a Santa hat.

Also my paid account ran out the other day SOB. /STARES AT 15 ICONS

SO I went to [ profile] hikaridonya's house today to hang out and take a break from stuff. We were both super exhausted, so we didn't do much but mooch, but she has bought an xbox 360 so I got to play Final Fantasy XIII on it. I told myself I'd only play the first 10 minutes or so.

...Three hours later I was still running through it, complaining that I had a splitting headache and I should stop but can't because it is too fucking pretty. I had to find a save point (which I wasn't originally going to do either) and make Donya take the controller away from me because I could've easily have played for HOURS.

My thoughts so far:
Spoilers about how annoying the characters are. Mostly capslocked. )

So in summary, I was shouting at the characters and complaining about the battle system, but about 2 hours in I got accustomed to it and was really enjoying it. I'm undoubtedly going back for more 8|b

So hey, if any of you have been wondering why I've not been around at all for the past couple of days it's because my computer got some sort of horrible virus or malware or something, which stopped me from opening any of my .exe program files. So I couldn't open firefox, my virus software or ANYTHING, and it's currently getting fixed. I'll probably be getting it back later tonight, ([ profile] hikaridonya you are a life saver) but it's gonna need reformatting sometime in the future and since my external hard drive is also broken, I have to wait till my new one gets here so I can save at least some of the files. Once that's happened though, it should be okay. I really should just get a new computer, but I decided that a trip to America was more important than a macbook pro (and I've sort of been having doubts about that ever since my HD broke, because I have no money to be able to replace anything technologically-inclined) and so I'm probably going to have to hold out for another year.

Oh, and the landlord of the house that we're living in next year dropped on us that he was going to his nephew's birthday party and can't meet with us today, when I specifically told him when I spoke to him on Monday that we'd be aiming for Saturday. He never mentioned that he'd be busy, so we all got up super early to get ready to go. It was a good thing that I called him.

Then my DS decided it would scare the crap out of me by freezing, and then refusing to turn on for like 10 minutes. Then I tried getting into the computer suite (which is where I am now) and they've changed the card swipe system without telling us so my card was useless and because it's an open day the guy who usually does the card updates isn't here, and nobody knows how to do it.

Okay so I've just spent the last like, ten minutes looking at Battle Frontier application forms on deviant art. You know, it's one of those meme things you fill in with a pokemon team and a an OC and enter a comic contest where the battles are drawn out. This doesn't sound particularly bad until you find out that in those ten minutes, I went through several forms and shouted at the computer because:

a) their movesets are completely and utterly not thought out and they have like three water type moves on one water pokemon and it makes no sense and taught Thunder and Shock Wave to a Raichu and omfg what why would you do that
b) looked at someone with an Ampharos on their team with Zap Cannon listed as a move and was like what ampharos can't learn zap cannon and had to double check to make sure I was right, which I was
c) got into a major RAEG discussion about this with [ profile] hikaridonya, whilst the other people in the room look at us like we had something wrong with our brains.

Again, why can't I study pokemon for my degree?

man the world hates me right now.

The first bit of creative juices that I've gotten flowing in literally a month or two and my tablet just dies on me.

It has been acting up for the past couple times i've been using it, and today it just refused to do anything. The light was flashing saying that it was on, but the pen did not register when I touched the tablet. I thought the battery had run out so I changed it, and there was no difference. The wires are sort of frayed where they go into the actual tablet (its an Aiptek Slim 600U) so I figured that its just decided to die on me.

cut for parental/job hunting RAEG )

Anyways, now that raeg is off my chest, I do have an old wacom graphire but I think its broken as thats the reason I replaced it with the Aiptek so I'll probably never actually get to draw this picture tonight (and by draw I mean ink and colour on the computer. I actually drew it on paper first). I suppose if I use the money from the manga sales to pay for a new tablet I could get away with getting an A4 wacom bamboo, but I'm not sure since they are like £170. EDIT: Oh wait, the A5 ones are £170. My mistake. *sobs*

Does anyone want to recommend graphic tablets to me? I want an A4 sized one (normal printing paper size) and I'm on a tight budget, but suggestions would be nice.
purapea: ([ kh ] do not want!)

She is introduced as member No.14 into Organization XIII. Similar to Roxas, she is one of the few wielders of the Keyblade. Probably since it's a common feature between them, she seems to get along with Roxas well, and opportunities to hang out with both Roxas and Axel increase. Triggered by events during missions, she comes to gradually doubt her own existence.

(if someone could verify these translations, I'd be most obliged.)

Okay so on reflection of the translated trailer I'm beginning to pull some ideas together for Axel's raeg halfway through for the lines:

"Stop fooling around! What do you take me for? I've decided. No matter how often you guys run away, I'll bring you back every time."

Now when I first saw this, the translations weren't available, and it was indicating that it wasn't plural. Because of the new ones, and this new information, I can see Xion questioning her existence to the point of getting Roxas to question his. And if she runs away to try and discover her true self, I think she could probably talk Roxas into going with her. Why sit in the Organization if they can go find answers about themselves and the keyblades? Yeah. I can see Roxas leaving with her. And if Roxas leaves, Axel gets angry.

I think I could like Xion if this happened, because I can honestly see Roxas doing that, but Axel cannot like her. He'd probably be interested with her, and tolerate her, but like her? Nhhrn. I'm so worried about this game. (but fuck yes, multiplayer)

Elle raises some very good points over here -> Please give them a look over?
