Games, Books

I’ve been getting into a lot of beta tests for games lately, not sure what that’s about. Quake Live was probably the best one, and that’s in open beta now, so anyone can play it. I’m in Battlefield Heroes as well, but I think everyone and their brother has a key for that now, even though it’s still closed beta. It’s not that good. And then I was just accepted into Blood Bowl. That game is okay, but not my cup of tea. I don’t know, none of this means anything. I’m just trying to stay into the groove of keeping up with this.

Also, I’m working on a short story that might turn into a longer story. I haven’t worked on it for a week though, which makes me sad. I need to get back to it.

I’m also reading. I’ve read Starfish by Peter Watts (great book), The Road by Cormac McCarthy (awesome book, turning into a movie from what I hear), and I’m currently reading Angels & Demons, mostly because I read Da Vinci Code. This book is okay but I kind of want to stop reading it though. However, it’s not in my character traits to start doing something and then stop in the middle.

Well, that’s that.

Umdate

Well, I think I might post here more, maybe. With the addition of my livejournal imports, you can see how just…unimportant the things were I posted about were. You can see a shift towards my most recent entries, where my posts focus less on “this movie sucked, this game rules” approach, and more on a philosophical kind of approach. Self psychology. Therapy? Anyway, that’s probably how this blog will be focused. I don’t think I’ll abandon my “media” reviews either, as I am getting into reading books. I actually just finished a book, and will write a review on it later, when I have the motivation. That’s something that has always been an obstacle right there for me: motivation. Anyway, expect more posts here, I guess. Maybe.

Umm

I imported a lot of entries from old LiveJournal blogs I had, so if you were retarded enough to look through my old archives, you might be lucky enough to find similar entries.

I forgot about this

I don’t even remember what reminded me.

I stopped playing WoW almost 2 months ago now. My lack of WoW playing and my lack of messing around with this thing should be evidence that my life hasn’t panned out horribly. I sort of got a job around the same time I quit playing WoW. That’s kept me busy, but it’s a crummy job and I’ve felt lousy ever since I started working there. Going to Statesboro this weekend made me realize that even more. I’ve fallen into a routine. Get up, go to work, come home, watch tv/play video games/surf the internet, then go to bed. Rinse and repeat. I hate routines. I can’t do this 9 to 5 stuff. College was great for me because of the erratic scheduling. If I live monotonous, I feel monotonous. I wouldn’t say I’m depressed, but I feel crummy.

I just want a fulltime job that makes at least $7 an hour and the hours aren’t the same every week. I don’t even care about being rich. I don’t care if I have to live paycheck to paycheck. Life is about having fun and you can’t have fun if things are stale and bland. I don’t know. I don’t know what I want. I just know I don’t like what I’m doing right now. And I know I miss hanging around people that are my age. I need to move out and get some roommates or just make more friends in Savannah or something.
