So, my blogging has taken a hit hasn’t it? I guess I might as well state my case, but no, not gonna hang up my hat just yet. Nor take another break.
Lately work has piled up. It isn’t a desk job or anything, and it’s really stress with long periods of standing and also having to deal with management who seem to believe understaffed locations is a good thing.
So normally I just come home, eat something, and go to bed. So that’s the work aspect.
For those who have me on the book of faces, recently I had some vehicular mishaps. Nothing major, but the dealership I had gone to in my local area had done a poor job in installing new brake pads and rotors on my rear tires, and having taken a quick weekend trip to North Carolina, found out that a caliper bolt was not tightened down, and I had probably lost it somewhere on the interstate.
Having stopped off for gas after crossing the state line, the brakes failed and luckily it did not fail completely until I was 5 feet away from the entrance of the service entrance to a dealership in that town. Needless to say I have now extra costs and a damaged rim, which will be replaced by the local dealership here as well as being reimbursed for the repair done in North Carolina.
Anime Wise, I’ve not done any headway to either Legend of the Galactic Heroes -Die Neue These- or Space Battleship Yamato 2202. Those will be completed together in a quick thought, and probably focus on the difference between the release and episode length of both shows. I haven’t dropped LOGH DNT, but I am pushing it back as apart from some episodes, it isn’t catching my attention as I thought it would.
Gun Gale Online will be given a quick thought as well. Highly recommended by friends and reviews, I might as well add my drop in the ocean of opinion. Most of it favorable to be completely honest. I will also do the same for The Expanse.
I love the fact that Amazon has picked it up, and while I do feel companies like Amazon and Google and the like should probably start feeling the weight of anti-trust laws, the fact that Amazon Studios now produce/picked up two shows that I dearly love (
Top Gear The Grand Tour and The Expanse), I am in no hurry to get a Netflix membership at this time.
Oh right, I’ve also been sucked into a mobile game.
Girls’ Frontline released its English server and I’ve been on that lately. I’ve played on the Chinese server and I’m quite happy that I now not only understand the content, but also understand what menu does what as well as have friends that can help me. For anyone interested, here’s my UID.
I’ve also upgraded my phone. Not for the game or anything, but I had dropped my old Galaxy S5 into some water with the battery cover opened, so it’s been bricked. It had enough charge to last until the next day where I managed to get to Best Buy to their mobile section and after some back and forth, walked out with a Galaxy S9+ which I intend to have it last for another two or even three years.
Anyways, that’s just a quick down low of what has happened in my life since my last blog entry. I’ll be on twitter more often now as well.
