To answer the second part of the question, arcades pretty much don't exist anymore, which is the saddest thing that has ever happened to the world. :(

I believe that technology and improvement are inherently good.

Living with [livejournal.com profile] azuhuxley_daioh in a little place somewhere (preferably around here in Montana but ultimately I'm not picky), the both of us writing for a living and spending the rest of our days cuddling and playing vidya together. <3

In other news my sickness seems to be well on its way out! I stayed home from work yesterday and just let myself rest and I think that helped a lot. Also my wrist/thumb feels much better already after a regimen of wearing that wrist brace for 12 hours a day. I'll keep it up for a little while, just in case!

"Hound Dog". Unless we aren't counting covers (which "Hound Dog" technically is), in which case I'll probably go with "Devil in Disguise".

Little Drummer Boy is my favorite because it's about some poor kid whose only talent is being creative and I can relate.

This, however. This puts tears in my eyes:

All trees.
All molds.
All weeds.
All grasses.

No animals, with the possible mild exception of cockatiels.

I was actually tested for this by an allergist. I am allergic to every plant and mold that they tested me for (Timothy hay in particular). They also tested me for most common animals and then several "exotic" ones due to the nature of my job (I was at PetSmart at the time) and the only animal that I showed even a mild reaction to was cockatiel dander. Good thing cockatiels are evil and I never want to interact with them anyway! :monster:

Anyways, in other news, I'm writing again. I've given myself the easy and perhaps undershot goal of 400 words a day in order to not stress myself out over it and I'm keeping up pretty well so far.

What can I say, writing is just what I do. Some people breathe; I write.

There is one answer and that answer is Moose Tracks.

Anyways, here, have an image:



Can you say three for three? Cause yeah, I'm gonna say three for three.

I have the next three days off and I am going to do nothing but play video games.

Fallout: New Vegas, Deus Ex, Space Empires IV, and Star Ruler, all for under $20 from Steam sales.

GABEN YOU ARE GOING TO BE THE DEATH OF MY WALLET

Anyways off to work in a few moments; hopefully the day goes by quickly.

This is a terribly silly question. Spiders are infinitely worse. Snakes are curious, friendly, and cute :3

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, obviously.

I'm not gonna lie; the past couple of days have been rough. I got the paycheck I'd been waiting on from OfficeMax, but it was about a third of the size that I thought it would be. Which means I'm getting another paycheck in a couple of weeks, I'm sure, but that doesn't do much to help me NOW. Similarly, I can't start working for Kmart until the background check goes through, and it's been a week and it hasn't gone through yet.

So I am broke.

I've had a few people, both family and friends, who have been loaning me money. And I'm very appreciative of them, but on the other hand it sort of makes me feel like a burden. Someone who does nothing but beg people for money. Logically I know that's not true; as Huxley mentioned to me the other day, the only time I even dream of broaching the subject is when I'm truly desperate. Still, I feel bad. I wish I didn't have to rely on everyone else for everything. I wish I wasn't almost 30, stuck at home, getting help with money and wondering how on earth I'm ever going to get Huxley over here and join that elusive "adulthood club" and do all those "adult things" I'm supposed to do, like start a family and whatnot, if I can't afford it.

More and more I feel left behind by the rest of society, and it's not easy to deal with.

I'm pretty torn between Paul Simon poetry and TMBG poetry here.

The Sound of Silence:

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence


Birdhouse in Your Soul:

There's a picture opposite me
Of my primitive ancestry
Which stood on rocky shores and kept the beaches shipwreck free
Though I respect that a lot
I'd be fired if that were my job
After killing Jason off and countless screaming Argonauts


The former because it gives me chills and the latter because it's just brilliant.

Pretty much everything!

I went to the bank today and talked to a banker in a last-ditch bid for cash and loan consolidations. I discovered two interesting things of import: a.) I can cut my car insurance down by $100 a month (so we got that ball rolling), and b.) my credit is getting confused with my dad's, which is negatively affecting my score. A lot. So I'm working on getting that sorted out as well.

I need as much cash savings as I can get because my paycheck today was ridiculously small. I was hoping for $400 (which is already much less than what I need) and got like... $340. Dem cut hours man. And I'm missing payments this month already and am getting slammed with late fees. SO YEAH.

I can't wait for insurance savings + gas savings. I just hope I get decent hours at the new job. I'll give 'em a few months to see if I can snag a full time spot. Otherwise it's back to jobhunting.

Anyways the rest of the day was spent: being tired, attempting to play Civ IV and quitting because I was tired, derping around on the internet being tired, trying to talk myself into working on "Windshifter" and failing because I was tired, and finally doing a bunch of online quizzes with Huxley for a couple of hours. Which was the most fun part of the night.

I'm still tired...

I majored in Media & Theatre Arts, aka movies. I originally opted for the major for two reasons: a.) scriptwriting is one of my few talents, and b.) I have this... I don't know if it's a type of synesthesia or what, but I seriously can't hear music without images and movement springing unbidden to my mind, little "movies" if you will, and I figured that filmmaking could help me translate those images to a more tangible medium.

About two years into my major I realized it really wasn't what I wanted to do for a career (largely because it requires things like "working with other people" and "moving to LA" and other things I'm not fond of) but I finished out the major anyway because I couldn't think of anything else to do.

Anyways, majoring in MTA gives you two career options, fast food and retail, and I'm currently in retail, so.
