Citadel DLC Ramble Part 2: Shore Leave

Image
Greetings everyone, now I'm going to talk about the fun interactions and features of the Citadel DLC that we get after the main mission.

Since there are so many things you can do and the interactions vary based on your choices, romance option, etc. I'm going to be sharing my thoughts based on what I chose to do while playing this DLC. There are so many things I could say to start this off with; do I talk about interactions or attractions first?

I don't think I'll be able to cover everything, so just the main points, here we go!

I'll talk about the attractions first. So the Silver Sun Strip in general is like Vegas in space don't you think? I love all the neon colours and whatnot, but other than that nothing really has changed if you compare it to the part of the Citadel that you can explore in the 2nd game.

5 Reasons Why I Shop Online So Much

Image
I’m pretty sure some people wonder why I shop a lot online. I can’t seem to go through a month without receiving packages in the mail from what I ordered online. At any stage in life, people will worry about what you spend your money on no matter what it is. When you have money left over after paying for your needs, you want to spend some on entertainment. So why do I spend so much money shopping online? Well I’ve come up with 5 reasons why that is:
1. I’m too lazy to go to the store
I try to avoid doing this; however, it can still happen sometimes. I might see something I want online, even if there is a nearby store that has it in stock for sure. But I’m not always in the mood to haul myself to where I can buy it no matter how close by the store is. Maybe it’s because of the time I realized I wanted it, or I’m too impatient to get it. (which is ridiculous because I still have to wait regardless)

After a long delay, due to some issues I had with the sizes and printing, here are the remaining three rings I designed with Shapeways and Wizegem.

The previous ring was something basic to get used to this kind of digital work; however, these three are the main event. I was inspired by a cosplayer I met on Instagram who did the exact same thing for her creation. They were related to the first one I made. Well, no matter.... time to let it out.
I once said, when I love a certain character, I would like to have a piece of them such as something they wear; without it being too impractical to wear during my everyday life to make myself feel close to them. So, what did I go with? Well, ever since I got into The Hunchback of Notre Dame and not only became an avid fan of the Disney film but also begun reading the novel by Victor Hugo, it wasn't long before Claude Frollo became my favourite character. I love Quasimodo and Esmeralda too, but Frollo definitely tops the list due to his compl…

Citadel DLC Ramble Part 1: Identity Theft

Well, this is it, the final ramble of the Mass Effect trilogy's fun DLCs. I decided to save this one for last being the most recent one that was added to ME3 and probably the most enjoyable in many ways. Whether it's the story, or the new area you get to explore with all the fun things you can do with new interactions, this DLC is something no Mass Effect fan should be missing out on!

So, what am I going to cover? Well the main mission obviously, and for everything else, there are so many options for the way things can occur that I won't be talking about all of them. I was never the Mass Effect fan who tried to experiment a lot with interactions and dialogue so I'm going to be very straightforward with this based on who I took with me on each mission.

Since there's a lot to talk about, I'm going to divide this ramble in to two parts, starting with the main mission.

Right Here Right Now Before the Devil

Due to preoccupations with other interests over the summer, I did not remember that I was going for my second ritual with Ghost until school started again and the band released their EP.

Nevertheless I am so happy that I went to see them this week. I felt like I needed a night out due to how busy I've been this semester, and Ghost is one of those bands where I can sing my heart out that night and forget about everything, including all the pressure this semester is putting on me.

It was a busy day as I had to rush home from school after an hour long class so I could have enough time to eat something and do my makeup. An egg and toast would have to do.

I put on my tour shirt from the last ritual as well as my Grucifix necklace and earrings. I actually got a few compliments for those since other fans had the double Grucifix on. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of the double Grucifix logo the band has come out with, so now fans like myself who prefer the classic Grucifix like on th…

Comedic Disney Sidekicks We Shouldn't Hate On

This subject recently came up to me upon browsing a few negative comments on YouTube for Disney movie clips.

I can't help but notice how hateful people can be towards characters that are meant to be the comic relief for whatever film they're in, no matter its theme. I've ranted before how sick I am of people hating on Jar Jar Binks, but in this case I'm talking about comedic characters from animatedDisney movies.

With autism, one might struggle recognizing humor and responding to it appropriately. But when I see this on the Internet about how people think the comic relief clashes with the mood of the film's tone: I can't help but think that I thought I was going to be the one with the lack of sense of humor. I tend to recognize and enjoy humor in movies but society does not for some reason.

For example a Disney movie could be about royalty and romance like Cinderella and you get comedy on the sidelines like the mice. It doesn't interfere too much, we're…

You Dare Judge the Lady?

So, if you're wondering what I've secretly been up to when I'm not doing my usual, well here's where you get the answer!

I wanted to try an experiment and that was create my own 3D printed jewelry which idea came in to mind when I saw a cosplayer make hers that way. There have been many side projects I've considered besides writing, but I was never serious about them, until now.

I can survive without makeup, but not my accessories! Plus I like to have my own creations based on the things I love.

I went to look for ideal places to do this and came across Shapeways; a quite reputable company as well as Wizegem where I could experiment more with designs.

I knew exactly what I wanted to make and I didn't want to go with anything too detailed or expensive. So here down below is my first creation made directly from Shapeways.

Metal and Make Up

Today was a difficult day, and I was hoping that it would be better. Nothing is worse than finding out that you put all your effort in to something only to fail it.

I wanted to spend some quiet time in the sleep lounge on campus but of course it's so tiny that it's always occupied. It's impossible to find a private place when feel down. However, I shouldn't let that discourage me from giving something my best effort even more when I'm given another chance to do it.

But the good news is that some band merch and tour announcements just made this day not so bad after all.

My pre-ordered copy of HammerFall's new album due to be released this Friday arrived today. It's nice to see Napalm tries to be more punctual with pre-order shipping. So, I get the sweet pleasure of enjoying the album two days earlier and since this is my first Hammerfall purchase, this'll definitely increase my liking of them since I'm a newbie. I also ordered a T-shirt to go with it…
