First Night With Lordi - All Inclusive

Image
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 …

Darkspawn Vortex

Can you believe it's been so long since I wrote about a dream?

There have been several nights where I had a few strange and vivid dreams that would have been worthy writing about, however, I didn't feel the motivation to share them. Then, there were also a few that were too personal to share!

So, why not start sharing these stories again with something that delivers memories, as well as new horizons?

I felt like this dream was fast-paced so this'll be a quick one for you.

It began with a dark void, and a thousand red eyes staring at me, and they began to merge and swirl around creating a dark vortex. I started to run as fast as I could to a small light waiting for me on the other side of the darkness. A voice called out to me in rage, but I must have been running too fast for me to catch what they were saying.

Then, I was standing in a desert place with rocky arches, purple lava, and castle towers. Sound familiar PS gamers? I was in the Peace Keepers home world from the fi…

Out of the Cave

It has been a long time indeed.

Well, I have good news to share, I am finally going to be heading back to class this week. It's so relieving that the strike is over, but at the same time, it should have NEVER been allowed to continue for five weeks! FIVE.

The college's 50th anniversary and this strike makes history being the longest. This is no doubt going to be remembered by myself and half a million students for a while.

Lucky for me, my workload is so light and I don't have many financial demands, so I should be able to get back on track and get on with my life without a problem. However, I still think I deserve a refund equal to the amount of days I lost.

Since this strike has gone on, I haven't been writing on here because when I felt like my life was left in limbo, I didn't have any motivation to write anything, other than how upset I was and the thoughts I was having, which is too personal to share here. I'm so driven to succeed that I hate it when anyth…

Why The Blogging Community Sucks

Image
I love to blog. Having my own blog feels like my sanctuary on the Internet; the only place where I can be the most honest. Every once in a while I often write about the challenges I face such as using a platform that isn't as fancy, blogging about a great number of topics, dealing with other bloggers, and more.

However, what I do not particularly like is the community, and here are 5 reasons why:

1. Spammers, spammers everywhere

It doesn't matter how hard you try, you will get spammed in the blogging community. We all hate spammers, and we wouldn't dream of becoming one. Some writers I've seen them spam links to their blogs on other people's blogs because they are so desperate for traffic.

It gets annoying. There are some groups I am a member of where I have to disable comments because there's a certain chance if I get one comment, it's someone who just wants to spam to get me to check out their blog. If they cannot do that, they go directly to the article&#…

Vampire Lords and Hunters

Image
I'm finally sitting down to writing about this DLC. I delayed it for a long time but promised I would after writing about Skyrim's main storyline. How could I forget the time when Dawnguard was first announced, some of my friends were counting the days and the HOURS until its release!

I feel like this DLC is a bit more lore-like despite this game in general not being very deep in the lore. We usually have to come up with our own things to fill in the gaps and many gamers may accomplish this with mods.

So, I'm going to talk here about what I think about Dawnguard.


The one thing I noticed first, was I overheard the guards talking about a faction of the same name, and vampires were starting to attack the villages. That became a pain in the neck because sometimes, they would end up killing someone I relied on.

In my most recent play through, two vampires attacked Whiterun and ended up killing Belethor. The pile of ash containing his remains, has been left at the foot of my Bre…

Living the Teenage Dream

Image
I don't usually write about the concerts I go to that aren't metal, but I think it's time I stop restricting myself to that. So, why not start that off with Katy Perry's show from last night?

I've loved her since I was a teenager, and last night felt like I was living that teenage dream. I never really expressed the desire to see her live when I was at that age; probably because I believed that it was nearly impossible to get tickets to big artist shows, and it was expensive.

Well, I'm wrong about that. I recall the tickets went on sale sometime in the spring. As soon as I heard about it, the first person I told was my mom who surprisingly expressed immediate interest in going. At the same time I felt my inner teenage self emerging, and that's when I realized I still loved Katy and wanted to see her. My mom told me to get really good seats. So, we bought floor ones that were still available. I was shocked that they still were, considering how fast they can …

The Dawn Attack of the Crucified Monster Anthem - Music of October 2017

Image
Another month has gone by, and to be honest, this one was difficult to get through. I was hoping it would be a month full of getting serious about my work, tackling projects (personal and professional), and just preparing to make any sacrifices so would ensure this would go as stress-free as possible.

That was not the case, I started to feel like a dark cloud was hanging over me and lost motivation to write. My only sources of happiness were my music, and playing video games. As I slowly regain that motivation, I have songs reflecting on how personal moments that have impacted me thus far.

5. Trevor Morris - The Dawn Will Come



This month, it starts off with some video game OSTs. Earlier, I decided to expand my horizons and began to explore the Dragon Age universe, starting with Inquisition. It's a fantasy game full of deep lore and epic moments. There is still much that I do not understand, and I feel like whenever I play, I don't fully read everything, such as codex entries, i…

The First Dragonborn to Rise Again

Image
I'm going to write about this DLC first since it's my favourite. I spent so many hours on this DLC the two times I have gone through it and sometimes I would never return to Skyrim until I felt like everything on Solstheim was done.


There was another before us, known as Miraak, and the thing I've come to learn about Skyrim since I started playing Dragon Age: Inquisition, is that this game was never meant to be lore-deep. We find ourselves at a position where we add to the lore ourselves if that's what we care about. Simple: Miraak is brainwashing the people of Solstheim while trapped in Apocrypha, hoping to have his temple built, and gather enough power, influence, and dragon souls to return to Solstheim. We have to stop him, yay.
It makes you wonder how on Earth Miraak came to be one of my fictional crushes eh? 
The greatest thing about this DLC is that it gives us a whole new area to explore; more quests and places to just fudge around whatever you want to do. Rememb…
