So my last entry was over a year ago, with life taking a dramatic turn, leading me to work in the gaming industry. It has been a year full of blessings, and I have met so many awesome people along the way. Of course, after joining the industry, I was finding myself semi-glued to my phone with e-mails and general social media catch up, not to mention news. At this point, most people in our family have smartphones, except my dad. Now that he's finally gotten around to handling e-mails, he figur
It's been ages since I've shared with you the silliness my parents seem to throw at me. So Dad and I were talking about work (I start a new job fairly soon) while fixing the stove (one of the dials for the burner was broken), and the subject of phones came up. Now, sad to say my dad pays my phone bill for me because we're under a family plan, but I'm definitely going to be doing my part (finally whoohoo) to pay for the bill soon because of this. Again, this was all in Chinese translated into E
So I spent the last 48 hours or so reading Legacy of Blood and am overall impressed. Admittedly I feel like there were some portions of the story that felt rushed and that Gar'rth's story seems thrown a tad messily together even though the title implied that this particular book would look into his history more. Still, T. S. Church did a great job keeping the thrill in the story, and tied up the one that was built up from Return to Canifis. But in terms of how Tenebra, the Dark Price, was elim
With all the excitement over the Combat Beta coming next week, it seems a little something that was highly promoted before got put back in the shadows. At least, from what I can tell so far. Some of you already know that I've actually gone and purchased the first and second RuneScape novels by T.S. Church, more out of curiosity than interest. And if anyone's taken the time to speak to the various NPCs in game that were mentioned in the book, you'll hear a few tidbits about the squire-later-kni
As stated here, I finally got 99 slayer. This leaves just three more skills to get to 99 for a max cape. These past few months have been rather incredible for me, getting so many 99s in such rapid succession. In some ways, I should have expected it to eventually happen, but at the same time I find it funny that I could have done the same thing many years ago if I wasn't so stubborn and got members back in the day. I don't regret those years on F2P though. It's helped me avoid making one of t
So I finally got my 20th Construction, making this my fifth 99 for the year (Summoning, Herblore, Crafting, Smithing being the previous ones). Still have five more skills to get to 99 for Max Cape, but in a way I may want to get 120 Dungeoneering before that so I can get the Completionist Cape and Max Cape at the same time. We'll see. =) Special thanks to all my friends for putting up with my whining and spamming of "11111111111111111111." :P [hide='Many Pictures for Your Viewing Pleasure]
And now, for some more fun from my life! :) This conversation was entirely in Chinese, mind you, so this is a translation of it. Mom: So I saw the eye doctor today. Me: Uh huh. Mom: And he said this word that I know means "blurry" but I don't know how he was saying it. Me: What do you mean? Mom: It sounded like aurry or asurry. Me: Um, you sure he didn't mean "blurry." Mom: What's "abarry?" Me: No mom, "blurry." Mom: "Barry?" Me: No. "Blurry." Mom: "Alurry?" Me: "Blur-ry." Mom: "Blar-ry." Ble
Meant to post these up earlier. Oops! :D [hide='Many Pictures for 99 Herblore] [/hide] [hide='Many Pictures for 99 Crafting] [/hide] I really have no clue what to get next. I guess smithing since that's always bothered me in dungeoneering. XD
It's been a crazy two months ish, and of course there were many derps along the way. Unfortunately it was hard to remember them all. :P Doesn't mean I don't have anything to share though! So I was taking a shower when I heard my dad calling for me outside at the door. I turned off the water, asking him what's up... Dad: Hey, don't you need to go downtown later to pick up those lab results? Me: Yea. Dad: <Says something I can't hear> Me: What? I can't hear you. I'll talk to you when I'm
Just nine more to go: Runecrafting, Construction, Agility, Herblore, Crafting, Slayer, Hunter, Smithing, Farming. Why did I leave all the hard ones for last?! Ah well. :P Many thanks to all my friends for their support. <3: Special thanks to Brandon/Naive/Sman for telling me to get off my lazy butt and get it already after finding out how many charms I had left over.... Which is now down to like 500 crimsons only rofl. :D Don't worry, slayer will replenish that quickly! :D The possibility
Phone call from my mother on my mobile... Mom: Hey your brother is home right? Me: Yea... he just got home. Mom: Okay, good. *Hangs up* A few minutes later, my mobile rings again. Mom: Hey, you said your brother is home right? I need to talk to him, give him the phone. Me: Er... why didn't you just call his mobile? Mom: Well you said he just got home... Oh nevermind. *Hangs up.* :blink:
Let's give a hand to parents and the challenges they face raising us, with derps along the way. A few nights ago, I was watching "Person of Interest" with my dad and one of the characters talked about burying an empty coffin... Again, the conversation is in Chinese, and my parents' English is rather limited. Dad: So does "bury" mean something like barely? Me: Uh, no! It means something entirely different! Dad: So what does it mean? Me: ... You mean you didn't get it when she said "coffin" in
;) What? You think my parents can go through a week without this? Dad: So how long is your training again? Me: Two weeks on site, one week in field. Dad: Okay. Not even five minutes later... Dad: So your training is two weeks long? Me: No, three weeks total, one being in the field. Dad: Okay. A few minutes later... Dad: So, you're going to be there for two weeks? Me: :wall: :-? If he's trying to start a conversation, this is sure a bad way to get one going lol.
:wall: I've had my schedule posted on the refrigerator door for some four months now, including the time and location I'll be at while bouncing between work and school, since my parents want to make sure they knew where I was in case something happens. Except they don't seem to even bother with it. At 8:00am this morning... Dad: Why are you up so early? Me: Because I have class. Dad: You start at 11:00 though. Me: Yea, and I have to leave in like an hour. Dad: But that's early! Me: Oh. My.
Since the last blog entry brought some smiles, here goes some more from my life lol. After I finished washing the dishes from lunch, my dad, being slow as he is, finally comes over to the sink with his bowl and chopsticks. Me: Dad, why is it that you always wait until I'm done with the dishes before bringing your own stuff over? Dad: Just wait, when you get older your kids will say the same thing. Me: Uh who said I'm gonna have kids? Dad: (Literal translation here) I will spank the three of yo
Last night at the dinner table while we were watching this speed dating show from China... Mom: You're not bad looking. Why don't you get to know someone? Me: :wall: Hours before that, a beauty guide show was on... Dad: You should watch that. You don't know how to dress yourself. Me: Dad, you do realize those women on there are like 40+ right? The styles aren't the same. Dad: No, there are some young people there. Me: Dad, there are old people on the screen right now. Dad: You still can't dr
I am finally living up to my name. :thumbsup: A very special thanks to Mr Cammybear for providing me the money and runes to get me to 99 Magic. And of course, thank you Tip.it, GamingHeavens, and Excl's CC community for the support! ^_^ Wubs you all! I basically fire surged from level 96 magic to 99. From 85 to 96 I was passively training magic by using it for metal dragon tasks. :P And now for lots of pictures... 26. Some are probably just repeats, but I was mashing the key like mad just in
Well, I don't think I'll get 99 mining on BXPW, but I should get pretty darn close to it! That'd make mining my fifth 99 for the year... If I don't get 99 Mining during BXPW I should have it sometime next week. No, this does not mean I'm going for max cape. :| I don't think I have the patience, let alone the time and money, to do that, especially with Runecrafting. :unsure: Dungeoneering is still on my list of 99s to get this year though so maybe after 99 mining I'll start doing that. :pray:
Living in California, it didn't always mean the stereotypical sunshine and warm weather. It meant depending on which part of the state you lived in, it could be really warm if you were living out by the desert or pretty muggy in the middle of July. Wait, California has deserts? Yes, and snowy mountain peaks too. It's only a four hour drive from San Francisco to South Lake Tahoe, CA. Winters where I live in in California have been significantly cooler and wetter over the past few years. The p
Despite all the "changes" that have recently been put back into the game, I've decided to mostly ignore it, mostly because I don't see it as something so drastically important that I need to dedicate time to it. Instead, I'm going the complete opposite route. For the past few years, I've been making it a point to not do anything combat related in RuneScape for the entire duration of the Lunar New Year celebration, and two weeks after that. This means a whole month dedicated to pure skilling.
I had meant to write an entry, but as you can tell I usually don't blog anyway. XD So it's been about a year and a bit over a month since I got P2P on my main. And honestly I have no regrets. Sure I lost my status as one of the higher skill-total F2Pers, but I gained a renewed interest in the game as well, not to mention even more friends. As of now, I have achieved at least three P2P stats to the 90s, including Thieving (99), Fletching (90), and Slayer (90). I've also managed to get 80+ in
