 1. MASS EFFECT 3 = ALL THE FEELS. EVER.

 I gave up on my package and dragged myself out to buy a copy, and have been glued to it ever since. My fem!Shep is a paragon of virtue who resisted Garrus' turian charms and stuck with Kaidan Alenko even though he has a propensity to be slightly whiny and question her a little too much. I'm halfway though the game now - and I pretty much already know how this is gonna go down - and, unless I get more damn war assets, not very well, but it's been a fantastic ride up to now.

I disagree with how Bioware made multiplayer so central to the game by making it determine the level of galactic readiness, though. ME's been strictly single-player up till now, and although I understand that game devs are trying to tap into the multiplayer market, it's just... weird.

Why not make multi-player optional, instead of letting the endings hinge on how much you're online?
 I haven't tried out multi-player for myself, um, largely because since I started so late I'm freaking behind everyone else, and also because I prefer getting into the game and flying solo. If I wanted to duke it out with other people, I'd have picked up COD/ WOW. Otherwise, no complaints. 

2. SCHOOL. Is just. aicapocmaocadc,d'c,'c, Even after filling out countless forms and going for interviews I have no idea what I actually want to do with my life. I mean... I've always wanted liberal arts and to go overseas for uni, but now I don't know. Now the offers have come in and I'm stuck in a dilemma. One choice offers relative security in terms of job prospects and career stability. The other is as uncertain as the first is not - it interests me, but it involves a lot of change and a completely new environment, is vastly more expensive, and ... I'm not sure if I'll be able to get a job once it's over. I mean, I would love to study creative writing and english literature and classics, and I feel like by not picking it I'm missing out, but the uncertainty is really holding me back. Spent 3 days agonising over this already, and still I don't feel like I'm closer to any answer. :( basically i'm just going 'ARGH HOW HOW HOW OMG HOW DO I DECIDE' over and over on loop and getting nowhere. 

[EDIT]: people keep calling me and asking me if I want to subscribe to random products/ services. WTF NO I HAVE NO MONEY ALSO HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET MY NUMBER I'M PRETTY SURE THAT VIOLATES A COUPLE OF PRIVACY LAWS. JUST. GO. AWAY. UNLESS YOU'RE MICHAEL FASSBENDER/ TOM HIDDLESTON/ BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH/ WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE I'M NOT INTERESTED.  although why would any of the latter be calling me, i have no idea. 

Here, have some scheming loki courtesy of hiddlestonr on tumblr while I clutch my head and rock back and forth sobbing quietly:

LOOK WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY. :D




Finally. Unfortunately it's also bent and battered due to shitty handling, wtf. Thanks, USPS/ Customs, I so needed that. >_>
laconian: (a light in the dark.)
Never knew several hours of juggling numbers and crunching data and playing catch-up with several months' worth of paperwork could be this tiring. At the end of the day, my brain is pretty much mush. Very dazed, mumbling, mush. 

... ...It's a good kind of tired though. The mind-numbing blankness that results from actually doing something rather than bumming around all day. Or the buzzed state I get into when I game too much/ get high on Arashi vids and dramas or writing. 

Guess I shouldn't complain too much - the agency called me today and asked if I was fine with an interview, and all in Chinese - that conversation was the most Chinese I'd used all year and I was fumbling and frantically searching for the right phrasing while praying that I'd be able to keep up with the conversation. Interview tomorrow, so fingers crossed! It's a part-time gig that involves small kids (not my ideal job, but at this point? I'll gladly take it.) and only requires me to be there on weekend evenings so HUZZAH THE REST OF MY WEEK IS FREE for friends and German and Japanese and Skyrim, YAY. :D 'Sides, it's near home and ends early enough for me to get to town for dinners/movies SO I REALLY HOPE THEY GIVE IT TO ME. 

Also, vaguely wondering if Mass Effect 3 is a good idea, so I can get results off my mind, but I'm running rather short on moolah. And current workplace is also near Gamer Central, so... *continues wondering some more* but I haven't played ME1 or ME2, so I'll be floundering around a lot. Not that it hindered me in the least from getting DAII and Skyrim, so I'll see. *rubs hands together gleefully* 

Can't function no more, need to be up early tomorrow. 'M off to bed.
