Bought FE Fates ysd from a guy, but I guess he didn’t really take good care of his games. The box art was torn. I didn’t really see it until later on and my heart sank a little. It really matters to me that the box must be in good condition because I like to keep them. But still, I got them for a really cheap price ^^
Lots of thoughts ran through my head. Should I sell it then buy another one? Should I ignore it? Yet when I looked at the game, I knew I couldn’t just ignore or sell it. I can only imagine how much it must’ve gone through to be so holey 😂 so I decided to try my best to “restore” it.
How it looks like after restoration: pretty good huh? You can barely see the holes! You can’t even tell where it has been torn. I’ve never felt so accomplished.
Have you ever met someone, interact with them and wonder how the heck did you spend years of your life not knowing them? It’s as if they showed you a whole new world.
That’s how I felt when I started playing Fire Emblem. I started with Awakening and was immediately hooked. The last time I felt this alive was when Pokémon Moon came out. I can’t believe it took me so long to jump onboard the FE ship! I’m in love!!!!!!!!! I recalled when I first bought my 3ds, the guy asked if I wanted the Fire Emblem Fates Special edition 3ds, and I was like Nahhhhhh. Now I’m kinda regretting it hahaha. @__@
What I love about that game is that the art style, story plot, fantasy elements are amazing. And the OSTs? Surreal! The characters are very lovable and their fight scenes are hella intriguing. Oh boy, I just love it so much. I’ve been surviving on little amounts of sleep since I started playing. That’s when I know it’s a good game. There’s not a lot of things during the hols that can make me jump out of bed early in the morning (by early I mean noon). I’m a hardcore bed-lazer. But for the past few days I really can’t stop thinking about the game and it became a motivation to get out of bed. Wheee!
But one thing I noticed about such games is that they tend to show the characters being self-sacrificial in the suicidal way. Wait…is it considered suicidal? I Guess so. For instance, to save the world, A decided that the best way is to kill/sacrifice himself so that he can save the rest. I think little kids may get the wrong idea hehe.
Today I stared at my 3ds and I felt my heart beat so fast. I feel incredibly joyful every time I gaze at that wonderful piece of technology 😉 thank you Nintendo. You’re the best seriously. And I want a Ps4 so baaaaaaaaaad so many good games ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. But patience, young kiyodu. Good things come to those who wait and in this case— good price. May the price of Ps4 drop more so that I can afford it v(^o^)v
We were always short on time.
We wake up earlier than anyone and we sleep later, but we never had enough time.
We lived harder than anyone but our resumes don’t show a thing.
They seem to be everything of our history.

…things you wouldn’t understand because you live in a different world from the rest of us. People who think that money gives them power to abuse the rights of others.
We don’t need this job. We merely wish to live our dreams. We don’t even need to live it anymore; we just want to be a little closer to it.
Keep fighting on.
I really want to see Chicago Blackhawks hoist the Stanley cup again. I want it to happen with the team of cores we have now. Because soon the team roster will change into something entirely different and things won’t be the same anymore… I receive news that Kruger and TVR might be traded to the new Las Vegas team and my heart died a little. Kruger, the amazing guy who didn’t mind a smaller salary just so he can stay with Hawks. And TVR, the dude who never fail to put on a bright smile on his face no matter the outcome of the game. And there’s the list of players who might also leave: Hammer, Breadman, Arti, Seabsy, etc. I’ve become so used to having them around, especially hammer and Seabs. Sometimes I think NHL really isn’t for me— someone who doesn’t take changes well. Haha. Or I could view this as a form of practice to teach me how to get used to changes. It’s just that every time i countdown to the remaining years Crow has with the Hawks and I dread it so much. I do hope I have a chance to watch a Hawks game before Crow leaves (please don’t leave)…
Oh please, Hockey gods, could you let 2018 be Hawks’ year? I mean seriously guys, let’s work harder and bring our fiery drive back. People are saying you guys suck but I think those people are mean and crazy. We don’t suck, we’re just a little lost. Let’s go Blackhawks, let’s go.
Also, Scott Darling’s Story. I’d like to keep this link here forever on my little writing space. I love my goalies so much. Scott, some day I’ll find a way to get your autograph and a picture and also tell you how courageous you are for pulling yourself back up. 🙂
Look at him. Just look at him.
I don’t usually rant about people. Honest to god, if you offend me once or twice or sometimes thrice, I still keep it to myself. Maybe I’ll dwell over it for a while, but I don’t complain too much. Because I understand. That in this world, in certain situations, some circumstances may bring out the best in us— or the worst. We are humans with personalities and individual thoughts and beliefs. Totally normal. Bits and pieces of the happenings of our life shape us into the people we are now. If I can’t understand that, I’ll be a disgrace to my major.
But here’s another thing, sometimes no matter how hard I try, some people really do pisses me off. Time and time again, I find myself being trampled on by a more “dominant” being, perhaps by status or simply an imaginary rank. Yeah well, we will always have someone of a higher rank than us. Totally fine but Gosh, how can some of them be so unreasonable? In this past week, I ranted to 5 people about you. What a record! “ 你不尊重我，我尊重你。你还不尊重我，我还尊重你。你再不尊重我，我就废了你！”
When such events occur, I constantly have thoughts of wishing that I could be mean enough so that people would stop stepping all over me. I wish I was intimidating. I wish I can be rude. I kept thinking that way but now, at freaking 5:14 am, I hate that I have to think that way. You should wish that you can be kinder and more understanding towards others. You should wish that you can be more polite and friendly. Why the heck am I wishing to be like you, just so that I won’t be “bullied” by you? You’re terribly mean and I never ever want to be like you!
So may this world always be filled with more kind people than nasty ones. May this world be filled with more understanding souls rather than those who criticise others for everything they’ve done. Oh good lord. May my world be rid of you.
But still…. thank you for giving me many wonderful friends who tolerated listening to my rants. Phew.
To the most precious one, my 3ds. It’s been one valuable year with you. Oh you’ve helped me through so much shit. Finally playing Ocarina of time last night. The scene whereby Zelda and Link first meet really make me smile. Beautiful pair. Look at the beautiful sky. Hyrule field and Lon Lon Ranch.
Here’s to making more memories with you ✌🏻
If I take away school…
If I take away work…
Do you still have something to wake up for each day?
Went to watch the very first movie of the year. Yeah, I don’t always watch movies in cinemas because…pocket $ problems. If I watch a movie in a cinema out of my own intention, it must be a really special movie *blushes*. It must be even more special if the very tired me actually drag myself to the cinema at night just to watch the movie.
I watched Fabricated City… I waited for so long for it to reach Singapore…. omgosh.,,,,,.. alright I admit it was more intense and bloody than I expected. I watched my poor Chang Wook getting beaten up over and over again, and boy! Do I just want to help him! It was a pretty good movie I must say. And yes I’m biased. Even if it’s a shitty movie, which it’s not, I will still say it’s brilliant. Because I know he put in so much effort in filming action movies… and he looks so…… 😍 but I hope you don’t do action movies anymore if it gives you body aches. HEALTH IS WEALTH. I think I forgot to blink throughout the movie and I stared really intensely and…..my right eye watered so much. My vision became blurred. Yes I was admiring the epitome of beauty on the movie screen until I forgot to blink.
I sound like a crazy fangirl which I am. But okay it was a great movie. Anything with hackers and action are my go-to movies. Gosh, I want to be a hacker so badly. Okay. I think I just failed. I don’t think hackers will announce they want to be hackers…..online somemore. I don’t know how to erase my digital footprint. I don’t even know how to access the Dark Web. My old laptop was override by Trojan horses. I think the closest I came to feeling like a hacker was when I smug PQ pieces out in Maple. Those good old days when I was actually… erm useful. But DAMN!!!!!! Love the movie, love Ji Chang Wook even more ❤️🙆🏻
