Weekend Blog Log (July 19, 2015)

Here we are at the final day of the weekend. It is Sunday, and so far my weekend off has been a mixture of grief, and fun. I have been gaming with my friend @Bitch_Duck_ in Destiny lately, and have been enjoying our online time together. We each hail from similar life circumstances, and find comfort in chatting with each other as we game. It's a nice distraction being able to talk to her as we play. I can't say I'm enjoying Destiny too much, but being alongside her in it makes things more tolerable. In the way of family strife my Grandmother continues to worry about every little thing. She worries to a point it's consuming every moment of her daily life. Often times she says she'd be better off dead, and living life the way she does I could see myself feeling a similar way. The only advice I can offer people like her who constantly dwell on the negative things is that you're life will only be miserable so long as you continue to dwell on things that make it so. Find hope, and positivity even if it is in the simplest of pleasures. Life is only worth living if you can set goals, find hope in a better tomorrow, and strive to make the most of the time that you are given. Don't become set in your ways. Don't become satisfied with merely passing time, and hoping for an end to your misery. The only way you are going to dig yourself out of that abysmal hole that you're in is to make an effort to do so.

In the way of reviews I'm set on the gaming, and adult side of things for a while. I've got "God of War III Remastered" to play through, and review as well as several TeamSkeet and Marc Dorcel dvds to review. In fact I'll be tackling a Dorcel dvd review today for my adult readers on my secondary blog. I had told them that I aim to provide two reviews a week instead of the usual one. I feel I owe it to them to honor my word even if it impedes on my weekend off. Aside from that I'll also be joining a couple of my friends in some Destiny today if the weather holds off, and doesn't get as stormy as it did last night. As usual we've got another week's worth of scattered stormy weather ahead of us here in the good old southern state of Georgia. It's beginning to become quite the unpleasant routine. I can't say I've seen this much weekly stormy weather since I've lived here, and that's been 31 years.

Anyways ... here's to hoping that today is not a stormy wash out, and that I can achieve the goals I've set for myself. I hope that you enjoy the weekend off as I aim to, and that if you have something that needs to be done that it gets done quickly so you can rest a bit. Tomorrow marks a new week with plenty of more work related activities to fulfill. Be sure to invest your time wisely as it is the most precious thing we are afforded as human beings. Strive to be the better you, and to keep things positive. Never stop learning, and always improve upon yourself as a person. We've all got room for improvement in most every aspect of life. I shall type at you later, and hope that you heed my advice!

You're Last Samurai,

  1. seeing as i can't come up with something to write here,i guess i can try this on an upbeat note.

    i just went out to get a snickers at the local grocery store and by the time i got home it looked like someone had licked it up. the bulk of chocolate stuck to the inside of the package due to the intense heat. im at a loss as to what to do with it.

    there was a curious incident in tops off the 3-day program with sf4 each year and the mishap took place at the very end of the event. 2 players were competing in usf4 in the grand finals and one player's stick had a malfunction,causing him to pause in the middle of the match. he actually didnt hit the pause fact his stick acted up and caused a situation similar to disconnection. the player lost a set (he was winning in the set) in accordance with the rules. he eventually won but that accident dampened the momentum of the match,putting off the audience and viewers on twitch and the stick's company is getting a lot of flak even now.what a mess!

  2. No worries. Any comment is welcome. As far as the Snickers predicament goes I'm sure it would taste the same. It would only make a mess when you tried to eat it. I'd say eat it anyways.

    I did not know about that Evo incident. Honestly I don't follow Evo, or the FGC (Fighting Game Community) activities that closely. I've never put in the time to become pro at fighting games, and seeing professionals play doesn't really excite me. I've always felt that the fights are more, or less scripted according to the tactics the FGC put into place in forums, and online FGC outlets. I'd rather see a one-on-one match that wasn't so "by the book", and that showcased some tactics that players learned on their own. That's my stance on it anyways.

    As far as the faulty fight stick goes I can imagine the company lost many sales over it. Evo is like a live advertisement for their fight sticks. The FGC really pays attention to the performance of said sticks, and seeing one malfunction would no doubt turn them away from investing in one.

    Thanks for the comment! I hope you are doing well :)
