First Night With Lordi - All Inclusive

At last, after five years of long waiting for an event I thought would never come, it has finally happened! Last night was the most epic night of my life, the most epic of all the concerts I've been to. Lordi was amazing beyond words and that makes the entire wait worth it. At last I can check off the top item on my bucket list.

So, how was it? I went out of my way to prepare for this concert, even if it meant getting ready and eating early so that nothing would come up to distract me, and that's what I always seem to do when I attend concerts that are general admission for everyone.

We arrived at The Opera House at a reasonable time and surprisingly there was no lineup except a few people hanging outside the doors, so we stood near them chatting for hours until it was time for all VIP attendees to go inside. While most people went for the merchandise stand, I bolted straight for the stage, propped myself up in front center against the railing. I did not budge for the rest of …

Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

Alright, here goes. It's time for me to talk about The Last Jedi, and I always like to wait a little to give it time. I'm going to try to be constructive here because even as a long-time fan, if there are things that I didn't like, I don't wish to hate. But this movie is far from perfect in my eyes, regardless of what the fans and critics say. Contains spoilers, do not read if you have not seen the movie yet.

So, the story itself is pretty easy to figure out. (Thank God for the crawling text, I swear to God if Disney trashes that, I will be pissed). Rey arrives on the planet Ahch-To to begin her training with Luke, but of course Luke doesn't want to do so because of his past failures to rebuild the Order. Meanwhile throughout the entire movie, the Resistance is pursued by the First Order that have been tracking them, and it goes on forever until they are finally able to turn around and fight. But in spite of that, there were many things that happened that left me w…

Bee, Take Me To Your Leader

Ah, it's been so long! I never have these dreams anymore!

When I was 16/17. All I wanted to dream about was Transformers; whether it was the Autobots protecting me, getting kidnapped by Decepticons, or just sitting on Optimus's shoulder and watching the sunset. Hell, someone once asked me if I'd do that with him, and I said yes in a heartbeat. Primes don't party but I'll do anything with him.

Anyway, yes I wanted to dream about it every night but seldom did. Then, these dreams come up when I least expect them. Some of them are weird like the last one I wrote about. This one felt like the first movie, only I replace the roles of Sam and Mikaela in one. That is how it should be!

This dream revolves around Bumblebee the most, and coincidentally, he is getting his own movie soon. I just hope it lives up to my expectations.

In this dream, I was walking along the street. It was just another day in paradise as I was headed towards work and then I had this strange feeling …

Tough Love

I didn't want to share this dream at first since I recall how far things went towards the end of it. Sometimes these dreams get to parts that are a little too revealing to share. But even if I don't share a specific part, it still remains in my memory after I write about it.

I have had some pretty good dreams lately, but have been distracted to write about them, until last night.

This one is in a weird setting, involving locations from the nearby mall, my high school, and the cabins at the summer camp I used to go to.

I was sharing a cabin with some girls and a few of them looked similar to ones I have met at camp years ago. We were gossiping and they would also tease me about one of the guys I was close with at school who I would always bump into at the mall.

One of the girls warned me of him possibly being a womanizer. But I refused to believe it.

I stepped outside our cabin and found myself inside the local mall that I always go to IRL to browse Conspiracy Comics and Sephor…

Turning Topsy Turvy Pages

Oh have I not written anything to ring in the new year? My bad! I've been occupied all week pondering about what's going to happen in 2018, as well as playing Dragon Age: Origins. Definitely a lot more tactical than Inquisition. I have also picked up Sims 4 (again!) and Hollow Knight. Gaming has really reduced the drama for me.

Well, once again it's Topsy Turvy Day! Perhaps it's time to share some stuff that's going on.

But first have some Clopin:

To be completely honest, I wasn't looking forward to 2018 because it would present to me another big change: a time to turn the page in my life. That's right, I will be graduating this year as long as I play my cards right in field placement. I can already feel the anxiety building since the first placement is something I have to set up myself and my anxiety always makes the task so daunting.

However, once the placement is set up, I'm okay again and continue with my life just like normal. All I really worry ab…

One Last Journey Through The Mirror

Well, as I sit here and write this rather than spending my NYE weekend partying, you'll be happy to learn that I have completed the final DLC of Dragon Age Inquisition: Trespasser.

It's sad to finally come to the end; the past two months have been phenomenal spending my first time in Thedas exploring new horizons. Hell, whenever I completed a playthrough of the Mass Effect trilogy, I would just start one up again! RPG games are meant to be replayed because of the different possibilities.

Anyway, this DLC was full of the most surprises and there's a lot to say.

Two years after the defeat of Corypheus, everyone reunites at the Winter Palace. Divine Victoria is dealing with ambassadors from Ferelden and Orlais questioning the Inquisition's future. So, you know what that means: We have to make a big decision at the end! Sound familiar? We arrive at the Winter Palace and get to go around spending time with companions. I enjoyed distracting Bull long enough for the Chargers …

2017 Life Lessons

So, with 2017 wrapping up, I think it's time I reflect back on the year.

I felt like 2017 was a chance for things to get better because 2016 was a tough one for me. There were once again a great many things that I learned to help me mature as a person.

This year has had its ups and downs, and in the beginning everything was going well, and towards the end, things got really bad before they got better. What can I say, life is a rollercoaster. Alright, so here are the lessons I learned this year.

1. What matters is what did happen, not what didn't

It is no secret that Lordi was the highlight event of the 2017; something I waited 5 years to happen and believed it never would due to the lack of demand the band had outside of Europe, and their financial situation, but then, miraculously I learned in the summer of last year that they would be coming and that my dream was going to come true.
It was the happiest moment of my life as I stood against the railing with my eyes glued to Mr.…

Heart of the Titan

Another DLC is done and this one felt like the deepest in the lore (and literally!). I almost started this one when I was stuck at trying to get my first high dragon kill and wanted to distract myself when I was having trouble, but then I changed my mind.

Playing it made me yearn for the surface again, but also it had quite a few surprises.

After the fall of Haven, mysterious earthquakes begin to shake the Storm Coast, and there is a fissure leading to the Deep Roads there. These earthquakes threaten the raw lyrium trade between the Inquisition and the dwarves of Orzammar. We meet with the Legion of the Dead; a dwarven military and journey with Renn and Valta in hopes of finding and eliminating the source of the tremors.
The Deep Roads are home to the darkspawn and even bigger creatures like ogres, and below the Deep Roads themselves, it gets darker with vein after vein of lyrium with Sha-Brytol dwarves fused with the lyrium.

I learned that not all of the tremors were natural; some of…
