I feel like I never post here because I always feel like I have to catch up on all the time since I last posted and I end up putting it off since I don't want to do it lol. but tl;dr things have been going pretty well, Prague was an incredible trip, job has been going a lot better, I've been running a lot more, and started taking a swing dance class haha.

 

Also, I saw Radiohead this weekend. Might be the best show I've ever been to. They're just such a ridiculously incredible band.

 

Today I went to a performance art exhibition that one of my coworkers was performing at that he invited me to. It was... pretty bizarre lol but there were some really cool performances mixed in with the ones that went utterly over my head lol. They were themed around mental illness. , but it was pretty vague. My coworker did this collaboration with a dancer where they had a live feed of the room they were in projected onto a screen behind them, but with random frames from earlier in the feed mixed in so that time felt like it was jumping all over the place. The two of them were making slow gradual movements throughout their stage area, but the feed behind them made the same movements seem choppy as they were continuously replayed. They both also read poetry they wrote over the entire thing. I'm doing a shitty job at describing it but it was a really cool effect. Another piece tried to capture anxiety, but was pretty bizarre and had a girl slithering around like a snail eating kale out of a bowl face-first while another woman frantically rearranged flower petals on the floor and tried to force the snail-girl into making human movements while a third woman played a live violin piece under it all and projected a movie she filmed about snails behind it. I really... did not understand that one too much lol but it was still an interesting thing to see I guess. Definitely worse ways to spend a thursday night lmfao

Today I got caught up on my OGame stuff. I plan to hopefully get to Champion Mastery 6 on Morgana today, and slowly get back into playing Summoner's Rift on League of Legends so I can do Ranked once again.

I bought battlegrounds only to have my headset crap out, so now I've ordered a new headset. First world problems.

I bought battlegrounds only to have my headset crap out, so now I've ordered a new headset. First world problems.

That's pretty much a re-skin of H1Z1, right? 

 

I've always been very interested in trying a game like that, but never really followed through with it. Probably mostly because i need a better PC first, but also because i feel like my internet/region isn't very favorable for most multi-player games.

 

 

Speaking of getting a better PC, it's something i've really been thinking about for a while now. I want to build (or have one built for me rather) a PC that'll be capable of playing whatever i want at max/near max settings. Honestly that's the only justification i can find for building a PC, since if i'm not planning on playing games at max settings, i might as well stick to console. Anyway, i have no idea how much (or rather, how little) i'd be able to spend to get what i want. Obviously i don't give a shit about recording, streaming, rendering, etc. etc. etc. so i know i won't NEED top of the line, but i'd want something as close to it as possible. Another thing that is probably going to be a MUST is water-cooling. I'm fed up and done with conventional fan-cooling. There's way too much dust where i live, and it takes the fan no more than a few days before it starts sounding like an old car engine. I had my Laptop for a year in the US and it ran perfectly. After about a month back home it started running hot, started crashing due to overheating, fan started running noisy, etc. I'm hoping that i can get something decent for around $1500 - $2000. I think the real issue however is going to be shipping costs. Since it'll be much cheaper for me to buy the parts abroad (because stuff like that is stupidly overpriced here), i'll have to find some way of shipping it here cheaply. And then there's also the fact that i know little to nothing about building a PC and PC parts... will require a lot of research before i actually get to it.

 

 

Completely unrelated topic... back in Greece for another session of exams. Kinda nervous. The closer i get to finishing, the harder it's becoming to stay motivated and focused. Really all i want to do is go home and play video-games. I think that really says something about my mentality when it comes to life. Sometimes i feel the reason it's taken me so long to commit and finish what i started is the fear of growing up and having responsibilities. Having to start paying my own bills, having a someone large amount of responsibility placed on my shoulders, etc. At the moment i think the only thing (and it's really not a good thing) that's helping me get through all of this is the idea of what my life could become once i'm finally able to say "I'm a pilot". The respect i would get from my family, not just my parents but my aunts and uncles, my friends, people who've always told me i'll never be anything or anyone. And of course i think it'll make pulling girls just that much easier, which is a bonus.

Putting together a computer is like putting together a lego. Even my brothers both could do it and did it last year.

 

Hot damn how I am waiting for the summer, and by extension, autumn. South-West USA and Central America are waiting, and after that an extended round-the-world trip...

Will be epic.

A lot.

 

How's it going down under? Are you still alive even? And have you found some sort of stability compared to the earlier rollercoaster of a life?

If you have a couple friends you like to game with, battlegrounds is great. It uses the same engine as H1Z1 (Arma) so in that regard it's similar.

All my life I've never been confident in anything, but I can finally confirm that I actually am intelligent to some extent.

I was granted an academic scholarship for my master's degree which means I get £3000 deducted from my tuition fees.

It'll make a significant difference - I am over the moon.

I talked a lot about Qatar tonight because I was drunk and Noxx speaks of life there often enough and I knew what I was talking about so... I'd just like to say thank you so much for continuing to post on these forums guys. You're all awesome and great and truly add a whole layer to who I am as a person for having communicated with you. Yes, all of you. Except you lurkers. [bleep] you and make an account so we can interact.

How else would you have ever even known about a country as awesome as Estonia?

 

I didn't know that things were so backwards in the States that you cannot fill up your car/motorcycle/lawnmower yourself but had to have someone else do it. I mean, kindergarten kids do it in self-service stations here.

There are particular states where it is illegal due to 60 year old laws. It's not in any way a case of incapability, I literally don't understand that interpretation.

It's also only two states, so, like...

I thought the article was entertaining.

 

Then I read the comments...

Just checking in for the first time in like two years or something.

 

What'd I miss?

 

Some people graduated college and some people disappeared off TiF. Other than that not much

Back in South Africa, and even in Qatar, every gas station i've ever been to had someone to pump the gas for you. I don't think it's a matter of being backwards. Really don't see how anyone could draw that conclusion, if i'm being honest. Frankly i prefer having someone pump the gas for me. I get to sit on my ass, in my car, while someone pumps my gas, takes my money, and brings me my change.
