Belated Zelda Symphony Entry

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, BZPower Jul 27 2013 · 65 views

Hey, folks. I am just popping to let you know how this Thursday went since I thought I might as well, in case you folks are interest in hearing how symphony was and if I got everything that I want done that day.
 
The short answer to this is that symphony was awesome and I got more streetpasses than I ever gotten in my life there (Even more than amount, I got during BrickFair visit last year, which was around 20 Miis.). As for tasks that I assigned myself for that day (Ship a package, get a haircut, and go take permit test at DMV.), I only managed to get my haircut that day since my motivation for that day kind of fell apart when I realized that my package need to be there by yesterday (Friday).
 
So yeah, there was no way that was going to happen, unless I spent a lot of money on shipping and I really didn't want to do that as such my package plans were discarded. As for DMV test, I felt like it would of been cutting it too close with the time that I had to leave for symphony, so I didn't do it. (Hm...I'll probably take day off in August to deal with that. *shrugs*)
 
But anyway, back to Symphony itself, I got say it was interesting experience for me much like BrickFair was last year, especially considering this is first that I have seen cosplayers in real life before and they all look pretty cool. I wish I had a camera actually, so I could of took pictures of some of people and stuff at the event.
 
I didn't bring the camera that I used at BrickFair last year since technically it is "cheap" camcorder, so pictures would of been awful at best. That and I wasn't sure if it would break this rule, "do not bring professional cameras or recording equipment (including cameras with detachable lenses, any form of camera stand or audio/video recording devices)."  I imagine it wouldn't break that rule since again, it was just a cheap camcorder. But I didn't want to take the risk.
 
That and I had enough things to keep track of on my person such as my 3DS, my dying cell phone (Didn't charge it beforehand since I don't even really use it ever.), my house keys, and wallet, which all take up a lot of pocket space (Especially when wearing some of my work pants since some of their pockets are nowhere near large enough for my purposes.).
 
Speaking of the 3DS, I manage to collect 30 Miis in Mii Plaza (I could gotten more, if I clear my Plaza some more during the show.), 50+ Fire Emblem: Awakening steetpasses, 50+ gems in Kid Icarus: Uprising, 8 portals in Kingdom Hearts 3D, 21 customers in Pokemon Rumble Blast, and 20 or so houses in Animal Crossing: New Leaf. So overall, it was pretty good haul.
 
Could of it been better for titles like Mii Plaza? Yeah, definitely could of if I had been more active about clearing my Plaza out there. But well, after how long it took to clear it out first time (I have all new Plaza games. Oh, by the way, Mii Force is definitely a lot better when you have a group of ten Miis. Although it still takes a little too long to beat a level in.), I kind just chill and causally chat with my friend, while he kept playing. *shrugs*
 
Oh, and for those wondering, I didn't pick up the poster or shirt since my sister and best friend are not exactly most patience people (Heck, it is why when we were considering another day trip to BrickFair [Which as I mention before, this can't happen now since my friend has a wedding to attend.], we have intend to buy one day visitor passes online since my friend wasn't  a fan of line last year. Not that I am saying, I am a fan of lines or anything. XD I just have patience to get through them is all. After all, I did have patience to wait at my community college for six hours for a class to start. =P).
 
And well, that's all I can really think of mention here about Zelda Symphony. It was fun evening/night and it made up for most of my plans for day getting dash due to my lack of foresaw.
 
Alright, with that said, I guess I should talk about elephant in room that also show up this Thursday, which is BZPower has finally revised advertising policy.
 
Honestly I don't have much of opinion about it since it never really bug me in first place as I only really go to this community on the web regularly, so it is not like I have anything to share with you folks outside of this site. Well, maybe a video or trailer of something that I am hype about such as Legend of Korra, Book 2 trailer (Not actually going to link it though since I am sure you all seen it by now.).
 
Hm...I guess I could link to my Twitter (Technically we were allow to do that before, unless I am wrong.), but I rather not subject you to my occasionally melancholic tweets about myself there. *shrugs* As for Facebook, I barely use it at all and I rather not share a link to my personal Facebook profile. You can find me in BZPower Facebook group though, if you are really interest in finding me for whatever reason.
 
So yeah, this change doesn't really affect me much, outside of being able to well, mention other places here (Which is nice.). So thanks to BZPower staff for doing this. I am glad to see that they are very much listening to their community here.
 
Alright, that's all I got for this entry. I hope you all have a great day and thanks for taking time to read this boring recap entry. Talk to later, BZPers.

Steam Sale Loot or lack there of.

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Steam, Video Games, Real Life Jul 24 2013 · 53 views

Hey, folks. I thought I pop in and give a sale report like I did for last year's summer sale. Of course, considering I didn't really pay much attention to Steam last week, I didn't really bother with most of deals this time around.
 
That and this PC can't really run anything on Steam that isn't a Retro old school style title, so there wasn't much point in buying games there when all they would do is sit on my computer and remind me that I need to get a new one (Which admittedly I should of done by now, but I been kind of lazy about it.).
 
But anyway, what did I buy during this year's Steam Sale?
 
-  Awesomenauts (3-Pack, which means I get two copies to give to friends. I already gave one of those away, but other one is still up for grabs, so let me know if you want it. By the way, I can't actually run this game. XD), Price: $6.78
 
Total spent during the entire sale: $6.78
 
So yeah, I didn't really take advantage of this year's sale at all. Oh, well, its not big of deal and it saves me money anyway. =P
 
Of course, that isn't help by fact that I keep buying stuff for my 3DS (I brought Attack of The Friday Monsters! - A Tokyo Tale a few days ago. I hadn't play it yet though. XD), which I seem to be addicted to play games on lately. I think Animal Crossing: New Leaf is to blame for that mostly. =P And well, the 3DS does seems to be getting itself a lot of good titles lately (I can't wait for Pokemon X & Y later this year.).
 
Like I actually been thinking about maybe picking up Shin Megami Tensei IV since the Club Nintendo deal does sound kind of appealing actually. Plus, it is an RPG and I love those types of games. Oh, speaking of RPGs, I got EarthBound for my Wii U, which is awesome. I can't play a whole lot of it right now though since I need to get some things out of way before Thursday comes around.
 
Speaking of Thursday, that's day of Zelda Symphony and I honestly cannot wait for it to come. I imagine it probably be the highlight of my year. Oh, and my sister manage to snatch herself some tickets, so she will be coming along with me and my friend to the symphony. :)
 
Alright, I think I did enough rambling here for one day. Thanks for taking time to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day. Talk to you later, BZPers.

Plans for next few weeks...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in BZPower, Real Life, Video Games, Random Jul 20 2013 · 49 views

Hey, folks. Back again to ramble a bit here about next week since I got a few things planned....Some of them might even be BZPower related like I am shipping my BrickFair package out on Thursday next week.
 
That package, by the way, is probably just going to be two MOCs since I feel like they are best ones that I have currently. That and they are pretty easy to photograph since they are not very complex. Not that I am saying my others are complex really since I mostly just mean that they are more likely to have loose pieces than these two would. *shrugs* Oh, and I might put a hat in my box since you BZPers are all obsessed with that piece of headgear. That and you all can say I was there in spirit. =P
 
In other BZPower related news, I am going be setting up my BZPower shirt raffle thing next week. So if you are interested in a chance at getting a free BZPower shirt, you should check that out. You do have do something, of course, to qualify for a chance at getting one of these shirts or some of Bionicle pieces that I am giving way. Its simply though. All you got to do is provide a link to a post that you made in creative outlet forums recently. There will be more information about that in entry itself. Oh, and its not restrict to just members from USA/Canada (Although it might take longer to get to you.).
 
Alright, so beside BZPower stuff, I am going to Zelda Symphony next Thursday, so that should be fun assuming it isn't unbearable hot that day. I sure hope not as that will not be fun. XD Oh, and also on Thursday, I plan to take written exam to get my permit again. Hopefully this time, I'll get to use my permit a bit more and actually be able to get my license finally. Here's hoping for that as it make attending a BrickFair in full more of possibility in the future.
 
In other news, Book 2 of Legend of Korra has been announced for a September release, so I am pretty excited for that, especially after watching the trailer. That news also did good job of reminding that Part 2 of The Search has come out, so I am looking forward to read that next week when it arrives at my home and when I get a chance to actually read it. 
 
In gaming related news, I got myself Earthbound on Wii U yesterday, which I am probably going to play a lot of tomorrow, if I don't end up marathon-ing Avatar: The Last Airbender or playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Which I really need to get back in habit of playing daily.) instead.
 
Oh, and speaking of Wii U, I am going probably be posting a LEGO City review sometime late August since I been really itching to do that, even though the game has been out for awhile now. Beside, I'll be frank with you folks that while I do enjoy the game, it is not a system seller by any means.
 
So yeah, the review is not going be like "go buy Wii U, you fools". I am just going share my thoughts of it and list some pros and cons and stuff. Oh, and I'll be sure to keep my fingers away from typing any story spoilers of it, so those that hadn't experience it yet will be safe. Assuming this review is well received, I might make a habit of doing reviews like that in future. We will just have to wait and see, I guess.
 
Alright, I think I ramble enough here about my plans for next week and stuff. I hope this entry was slightly interesting to folks. If not, sorry about that. Thanks though for taking time to read it all. Talk to you later, BZPers.
 
EDITED: Oh, happy birthday, BZPower. Thanks to the staff for all your efforts throughout the years here. I hope BZPower has many more years to come.

Eight Years of BZPower...

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life, BZPower Jul 17 2013 · 72 views

Hey, folks. Today is my 8th anniversary of BZPower, so I thought I pop in and attempt to write a reflection entry of sorts for this. No doubt I'll end up rambling about stuff, so it probably be boring to read, I imagine. *shrugs*
 
Well, start right off, I can't believe it been eight years. Man, I been on this site for long time. Of course, not as long as some of you. But still, eight years is long time to be in same place, especially on the internet. And well, I can't say I regret it since I still very much enjoy visiting this site and reading all your thoughts on the forums here.
 
Although it would be nice if I was more active in the forums here. Yes, I realize that I am only one holding myself back in that regard. Really now that I think about it, I imagine the reason for my lack of activity here lately has more to do with fact that I am, well, completely unsure of myself this year. Like I just don't know what I want to do both in real life and online lately. *shrugs* 
 
I guess I shouldn't be hugely surprise by that fact though since I kind of felt like this since I graduated from Community College last year because I am rather conflicted about applying to other companies since I almost feel like I am betraying the company that I am currently working out by doing that.
 
There is also question of whether or not I should go for higher degree than my associate's in Applied Mechanical Engineering. Like part of me is very much against the idea because I know I will have to take a language course and I don't have confidence in myself that I will be able to pass such a course considering how bad I am with English. There is also public speaking course that I will have take, which I know I will struggle in due to how timid I am at times. *shrugs*
 
Of course, there is another part in me that says that I don't do it, then I will probably end up being pay barely more than minimum wage for rest of my life, which isn't great really. *shrugs*
 
But anyway, to get off that tangent, my point is I hadn't feeling hugely motivation lately to really do anything creativity here. I think I need to get involve in something here. I just don't know what. It definitely can't be Critics Club thing since I don't have time for that (Especially not epics, Short Stories maybe...But I rather write a review at my own pace than deal with a week's deadline honestly.). Hm....I would consider an RPG, but I know from experience how much I just love to read everyone's posts, even if my characters are not even interact with them; so I don't know.
 
I guess I could try to do some MOC-ing since I definitely enjoy doing a bit of that back in December. So yeah, I guess I could do that. I doubt it will be anything that you folks would be interest in though, especially considering it probably wouldn't be Bionicle based since I am not very good with making humanoid figures. *shrugs*
 
lol I like how I say this was going to reflect about my eight years here and instead I am I just writing about this year mostly. XD But hey, it counts, I guess. I mean I probably would just end listing all the "jobs" that I have on BZPower over years, which is probably boring for you all to read. Not reading what I already wrote above is very exciting or interesting either. *shrugs*
 
You know what I'll write up that list here anyway because why not since if you don't want to read it, you can and will leave. Okay, so here is brief run down of "jobs" on BZPower that I have held over years:
- Amateur Author: When I first came to this site, library forums here were what instantly pull me in here and it is why to this day, I still tend to view the library forums as my home here. The first story that I ever wrote for this site was a epic by name of Watis's Life, which was probably one of my worst epic ever written.
 
Although oddly enough, Watis and Torickparu are actually one of my favorite characters in my collection works here. I am not sure why exactly, but I guess there is a reason why I gave them a cameo in my Takanuva story that I have never post here since that's story is still incomplete. Oh, speaking of Watis's Life, I actually have a bit of reference to another BZPer's work in that story since I took joke of bad things always happening to Nuparu from a comedy on forums involving Nuparu and Makuta, I think.
 
Reviewer: So obviously since my early days were library centric, I naturally was a reviewer of other people's works here. Admittedly my reviews starting out were awful. But over time and experience with Epic Critics Club (I was part of the Club during reign of Twenty-Two & daydreamer. I refuse call myself a critic though since I feel like I am not talent enough for that title. Its partly why I left Short Story Critics since I felt like I wasn't good enough for the job in general.), I was able to get bit better and start provide people with better quality reviews.
 
Of course, I got overwhelm with school work and stuff eventually, so I did end up leaving the Epic Critics Club. However somewhere down line I got time again and join up with Short Story Critics for a bit before eventually leaving again due to life in general and fact that I don't think I am good enough to be one.
 
- Role Player: So during one of my brief breaks from Epic Critics, I end up joining an RPG for first time and it was called Bionicle Kingdoms. And well, it was pretty fun. I just wish though that looking back that I have avoid creating my semi self insert character for it since that was an awful mistake of mines. Although even weirder is I was actually made a Game Master for one of sequel RPGs and man, I wish I did better at that. So many regrets. XD
 
Well, that's all "jobs" on this site that I really had. I definitely have my share of regrets with them, although there were plenty of good times with them as well.
 
With that said though, I think I done enough reflecting here for one day. So I am calling this entry and post it. Thanks for taking the time to read this folks. I hope to see you all in another eight years. =P Talk to later, BZPers.

Pacific Rim / Hangout Overview

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Video Games, Random Jul 14 2013 · 66 views

Hey, folks. Yeah, I am aware that I am kind of late with this and well, sorry about that. I kind of lost track of time since I had such a blast hanging out with my friend today. But hey, I am here now writing this, so it is not like I forgot about it. Beside, I doubt any of you folks were waiting for this or something.
 
So yeah, with that said, what are my non-spoiler related thoughts on Pacific Rim? Well, I personally like it and I would definitely recommend you check it out, if you can. Heck, I actually want to go to theaters to see it again and that's pretty rare of me (Really going to movies in general is rare of me nowadays. This is like the second movie that I seen this year.).
 
I will definitely be picking this up on Blu-Ray or DVD when I get chance since I would love to be able to watch this movie again a few times. Oh, and I love main theme for this movie way too much. I am actually listen it now, while I write this.
 
Now I should point out that while I do very much like this film, it is not without its faults such as some Jaeger pilots being barely more than extras in the film itself and fact that sometimes the epic soundtrack does drown out the dialogue being spoke by characters. The story itself also by no means revolutionize. So yeah, don't come to this movie expecting Shakespeare with Giant Robot and Monster fighting.  However the action and science fiction elements are all worthily of praise in my opinion.
 
Alright, that's all I can think of talk about without well, spoiling anything for you folks. Moving right along, uh...my friend and I finally finished Kirby's Return to Dreamland today. It was pretty good. Although I failed a lot in places since I kept running blindly into things at times. XD
 
Oh, we also played a bit of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Co-Op as well. That was pretty fun. Not much to say on that really, beside that I was pretty terrible at that as well (To be fair, I hadn't play it since Animal Crossing: New Leaf came out.). XD
 
Uh...Lastly we start Super Mario Bros U today (Well, more like pick up where I last left off.), where I play as a pro as Green Mario. ....Okay, nah, I was pretty terrible in that as well. I got like two continues as Luigi during our brief run through World...Uh 3, I think. So the moral of story here is that I am terrible at video games.
 
But yeah, I had a great time hanging out with my friend today. I kind wish we could do stuff like this a bit more often. But eh, that's life. With that said, uh...I think I am done here. I don't really have anything else to talk about that you might be interest in. *shrugs*
 
Uh...I guess while I have you here, I should ask this: Is there anything that you particularly want me to talk about in my blog here? Just wondering.
 
Alright, I should hit the hay now. After all, it is like 3 AM now. XD Thanks for reading this entry and I hope you all have a good day. Night, BZPers.

Going to see Pacific Rim tomorrow....

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life Jul 12 2013 · 62 views

How hype for it should I be?
 
***
 
Hm...I probably post my thoughts of it here. Most likely around midnight, knowing my track record. So be on look out for that, if you want to read my thoughts on it for whatever reasons.
 
Oh, and I will be hanging out with my best friend tomorrow (After all, he is one that I am going to see this movie with. :P ), so there might be update on our progress in Kirby's Return to Dream Land here as well.
 
That's all I got for you folks today. See you all tomorrow after Pacific Rim and our hang out. Thanks for taking time to read this, folks. I hope you all have a great day.

Looks Like My Vacation Is...Over

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life Jul 07 2013 · 78 views

Hey, folks. I am popping in to do my usual "Looks Like My Vacation Is...Over" entry since obviously today is last day of vacation this summer (Although admittedly I am entitled to two weeks, so I might take a week or a few days off in August or whatever. *shrugs*). So to start right off, I had a pretty good vacation from work this week.
 
Did I get everything that I want done this week? Uh, no. Am I surprised that I didn't get all I want done? Not really since I know I have a bad habit of procrastinating when I am at home (Its why when I was in college, I would always go to school like two hours early because I knew I could focus better on getting things done away from home.).
 
Hm...Really be honest, I didn't really get anything done this week, beside get my new glasses and go to doctor's. I mean I did work on cleaning the basement up and it does look slightly better now. But honestly it needs a lot more work done with it and I really I should put more effort in it as I basically rush clean it today since I realize I was out of time. So yeah, I am kind of annoyed at myself for that.
 
I also didn't ship out my BrickFair package yet since I completely forgot about it. I am going to try to ship it out next week, if I can find a suitable box for the job. *shrugs* Oh, and I didn't really take advantage of my free time this week to catch on some of TV shows that I watch or play Ni-No-Kuni, so that's another fail on my part. So this week was really not very productive since I spent most it just chilling on the internet. XD
 
So in conclusion, folks, JMJ is lazy (Not surprising considering my activity here in general.) and he doesn't know how to have himself a productive and fun vacation from work. That's really about it for this entry.
 
Actually before I go to bed, I was reading the forums earlier and I notice someone link to this, which shows that Hero Factory universe has itself a bit of multiverse and well, it kind of interest me. So Hero Factory fans, tell me what else story stuff does LEGO give ya and well, I might take a look.
 
*yawn* Well, I got to go to bed now. Thanks for taking time to read this boring entry, folks. I hope you all have good day. Night, BZPers.

Random Late Night Entry

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Real Life, Random Jul 04 2013 · 62 views

Hey, folks. I am just popping in to give you all an update about how my vacation is going so far. Well, Monday and Tuesday were mostly my chill days this week.
 
Actually I take that back about Monday since technically I was stressing a whole lot that day because I had a Doctor's visit and I was worried they would find something wrong with me like they would tell me my scoliosis has started to progress again or that I will have start taking pills for hyper tension. Thankfully there was nothing wrong with me, beside well, the obvious which is being overweight (I already know I need to work on that.). So I was worrying about nothing really. I did have to get some shots though, which is never fun.
 
But anyway, today (Wednesday) I decided that I was going to work on something that I have been putting off for awhile now and that is cleaning the basement. I wouldn't say I made great progress today though since I was multitasking awhile I did it. It is getting there though and I think it might be presentable in maybe like the next three days. Hm...I might take some pictures to show you folks it, if you want. *shrugs*
 
In the meantime, I did take a few pictures of some stuff that I thought I might as well show you folks, which are my small book collection and some of my BIONICLE collection.
 
Yes, I know my book collection is pitiful. But unfortunately books in general don't keep my interest too well at times. Also I just want to note that some of those books were just required summer reading for school, so I am not saying I love all books in that shoe box case (Well, I do love all Bionicle books.).
 
Alright, that's all I can really think of writing about here. Well, actually I was going to mention that my lonely existence is starting to get to me at times. But eh, I am sure you folks rather not read about that, especially considering there is not much more to it than that. *shrugs* 
 
But anyway, enough talk from me, I should probably head to bed now. I apologize for giving you all this boring entry to read. Uh, thanks though for at least giving it a quick read. I guess I'll talk to you all later. Night, BZPers.

Vacation Time: 07-01 to 07-07

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life, BZPower Jun 30 2013 · 67 views

Hey, folks. I am just popping in to let you all know that I am on vacation from work now, so I might be a bit more active on forums here.
 
Well, knowing me, I probably end up playing a lot of video games this week (Especially well, Animal Crossing: New Leaf). XD But eh, I am sure I'll have time to do stuff on BZPower. Hm...Maybe review a short story or comment in some discussion forums here. *shrugs* I might play a bit with my LEGO collection since I want to make another creation to put in my box for BrickFair (Which so far my plan is to ship that out this week. We'll see how well that goes.).
 
Oh, and speaking of BrickFair, I got a bit disappointment news for ya. I heard back from my friend, that was going to take me down again for a day, and well, something has come up for that week in August for him. So yeah, the day trip is off due to that reason. I am sorry if I got any of you folks' hopes up (Not that understand really why you want to meet loser behind this computer screen to begin with. But yeah, I am sorry, BZPers.). I really should of wait till it was close to August like I did last year. But well, I got my hopes too and jump the "Zamor Sphere Launcher". Again, I am sorry about that, folks.
 
...Although admittedly it is kind of relief since I was kind of worried that I would fail to build up courage to introduce myself to any of ya again, so there's that. *shrugs*
 
But anyway, moving on that topic, I guess I should mention that I might be without the internet for a day or so during this vacation since I do need to do some summer clearing. That and the wall behind my computer needs to be paint, so naturally it will end up being disconnect and stuff. Although then again, I guess it really doesn't matter to you folks since my activity on BZPower is not much to begin with. *shrugs*
 
And well, that's all I got for this entry today. I would make a list of goals that have for this week, but honestly I think it is better just to play things by ear as that's what I am going to do anyway. Okay, with that said, I thank you all for taking time to read this entry. I apologize if it was boring for you all to read. I'll try to make my entries later this week more interesting, if I can. Talk to you later, BZPers.

21 Years of Life - The Belated Entry

Posted by Jedi Master J. , in Random, Real Life Apr 21 2013 · 93 views

Hey, folks. I am just pop in today like I usually do to tell you how my birthday went yesterday. Don't worried folks I am not going to rib you all like I did last year for not making a topic since honestly it is not that big of a deal.
 
But anyway, my birthday yesterday was pretty good. I spent most of my day hanging out with my best friend (Which by the way, he is same guy that made me getting visit BrickFair for a day last year possible, so he is pretty awesome friend, if you asked me.). And well, we mostly played video games and talk about vary of things on our minds. It was nice, especially considering I don't get to regularly converse with people, beside my family, very often.
 
Oh, and the games that we played were New Super Mario Bros Wii and Kirby's Return to Dreamland. In NSMBW, we were picking up where we were last time, so we beat the World 8 and saved the Princess. Hm...And if any Luigi fans were watching us, they probably would of cry since I kept dying with him as I am awful at platforming games. So yeah, sorry to Luigi for disgracing you on your year in the spotlight.
 
Speaking of Luigi, my friend apparently felt like getting me something for my birthday (Much like I had last year when I got him Kid Icarus: Uprising, which I am still not sure he has actually played. I hope he at least gave it a try though.), so I now have a copy of Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. So that's pretty awesome, although it does throw a wrench in my plans of getting back to Fire Emblem: Awakening (Which I was planning to do since I had beaten LEGO City: Undercover story mode.) anytime soon. XD
 
But anyway, in Kirby's Return to Dreamland, we got to Level 7: Dangerous Dinner and after failing to beat that level several times due to my bad platforming skills and tired hands, we decided to call it a day since we been playing video games for like nine hours straight with a little break for pizza.
 
That and my friend had to start heading home since it was ten o'clock at night by this point and surprisingly his parents had yet to text him about being out so late like they usual do (I imagine it is because my father has that signal booster upstairs for his cellphone, so his phone got no signal due to that blocking it out probably.).
 
So yeah, we are probably going to pick up on that game next time we hang out (Which probably won't be till the summer since he still has school right now.). That should be fun. And I must say I am quite interesting in playing more Kirby games after playing this game and Kirby's Adventure recently. 
 
Alright, moving on from gaming talk, I guess I should answer the "do I feel any different now that I am 21?" question. Uh, the answer is not really and I honestly find it strange that people seem to have this idea that when you aged you like become a different person or something. I mean I guess it comes from the idea that when you grow older, you tend to reflect on past experiences and one would hope learn from them to do better in such situations in the future.
 
That make sense, I guess. But it is not like I personally have experienced that much of life yet since all I really do right now is just go to work really. *shrugs* Then again, if it is more about thinking about your regrets in life, I don't really need my birthday to make me think about that since I regularly do it already (The fact that I was too shy and scared to meet anyone at BrickFair last year is a good example of one such regret of mines.).
 
Alright, moving on from that topic, uh...I actually got nothing else to say really. So yeah, I guess that's it for this entry. Thanks for taking the time to read this, folks. And I hope you all have a good day. Talk to later, BZPers.
