Hahaha, you didn't have to answer it now if you were pressed for time! XD Recovering, yes, of course. I have to. :D I'm going to be busy for the rest of the month until the first week of November too! So much work. I wish I could just throw everything away and snuggle in my bed.
Also, I saw the fan you bought which you posted on tumblr. I WISH I HAD ONE! I played with it in the electronic store once, and my mom, dad, and I were in awe. At first I thought it was a normal fan, but the blades were spinning so fast that we couldn't see it anymore. So when my dad told me to put my hand in the ring, I was horrified. Until I realized right after that there were no blades. >:P
I was about to tell something (that could be interesting), but I'll put it off till later.
...Have I caught your attention? Yes? Yes? Hahaha. XD
That's great! Not great that you forced yourself, but great that you're back. And evidently recovering. I'm really sorry about that. Busy, busy. As always. Haha. I've been great, moving in and the rest of it. And now I have to jet to my next lecture!! Eek, running late. Bye!
I think I forced myself a little to come back. Hahaha. But I think I'm feeling better already! :D And we haven't talked for a long time, again. How are you?
Howdy! I never run into you on Skype any more, and I was just reminded today of how little we speak. How have you been?
I'm sure you're fine. XD But it's not bad that you didn't just stop reading altogether. And you've picked up a number of stories.
I think he said it's easy because of the gambits. I feel kind of lazy when I think of restarting the whole game though, but it's not like I went so far into the game anyway...but still. XP
I worked just for today. I got RM100 out of it so I'm happy. I can only spend RM50 though, because I'm donating the other 50. I just want to save money though. I feel as though I've been spending way too much. >:(
I'm so tired after the work. I just want to sleep and sleep...
I imagine you do; Neil Gaiman is a fantastic writer, I hear. I also hear that Kafka on the Shore is brilliant. By the end of the summer, I want to be able to tell you my opinion about both, because right now, because I haven't read either, I can't have one. I've slipped reading the past few days, not completely, just less than normal. :( I may have ADD.
If you turn on gambits and let the system do everything for you, of course it's cakewalk. Get him to play without AI input and see if he says the same thing.
Haha, I know. I was a mindless idiot back then. At every stage of life I say I wish I knew then what I know now.
Still great relaxation. People who get summer jobs confuse me. I don't criticize it; it's just something I have no intention of doing. I'll probably have to start publishing proper research next year, but until then, I'mma forget that I'm an adult, and return to childhood.
I'm still halfway through Neverwhere, but I love it. And I really enjoyed Kafka on the Shore, so I really miss it. XD I was contemplating on getting American Gods too, but I spent my money on Room instead. I wasn't as into books during my eleventh and twelfth grade, actually. XD I only read books for my book review, and they weren't books I really enjoyed at that time, except for two books, one by Jeffrey Archer and another by Bill Bryson. The books I read for leisure at that time were mostly romantic comedies and Sidney Sheldon books (I was in love with Sophie Kinsella's Can You Keep A Secret? and Undomestic Goddess and Sidney Sheldon's Rage of Angels). I only started reading more General Fiction/Literary Fiction when I started college, I think.
Hahaha, I like the turn-based system as well. I would have enjoyed XII more if the battle system was more like KH. Well, my brother said XII's system was easy.
XD I was mainly attracted to FF games because of their storylines! I find it funny hearing that you didn't pay attention to the storyline the first time around.
Not really...I don't know, I've only got a month of holidays, and I feel like curling into a ball, play, read and watch all I want than spend my time working or doing all that. I would have liked to sleep, sleep and sleep but I realize I can't because I end up getting nightmares instead. D: So I just want to watch all the anime, movies and TV shows that I have and play games and read all the books I have waiting for me!
I recognize three of those titles, and one of them is on my nine-book summer reading list -- Neverwhere -- though I may decide to pick up Kafka on the Shore, too. Hmm. I first have to get through LOTR, Neil Gaiman (Good Omens, Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, American Gods) and 1984. I regret giving up reading between eleventh and twelfth grade. :(
I actually prefer the standard Final Fantasy turn-based battle system. I think FFXII would do better if its battle style was more like KH.
Yep, X, VII and VIII I replayed to give the storyline the attention it deserves. XD First time around, I ignored all that. I was a real big idiot.
I know! Have you got any legit summer plans? Job/internship/actual grown-up things? I want to curl up into a ball and transform back into a fetus...and play video games...and never grow up.
I'm currently reading Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, and I have Room by Emma Donoghue waiting for me once I'm done with Neverwhere. But I really want to buy a new Murakami book (South of the Border, West of the Sun or Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World) and I haven't even finished Kafka on the Shore by Murakami yet because I lent it to a friend who needed it for her assignment. I also started on The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga but I haven't finished that too (because I started on Neverwhere). I would also like to read a new Paulo Coelho book. XP
LE GASP! I thought the storyline was more significant in the KH games, because the battle system is really easy (except CoM because I just didn't understand the card system).
I find XII a little harder than the Final Fantasy games I've played, but it's probably because I'm used to easy battle systems, though I'm getting used to it. Wait, then what about X? You paid attention to the storyline in X, didn't you?
XD It sounds really nice though, I think I'll love that feeling if I were staying abroad and came back home. And I know what you mean about the holidays getting shorter! I mean, it's just been a few days for me since the holidays started but when I think about it, time flies by so fast that I don't want the holidays to be any shorter! I think it's nice to be sentimental sometimes! It makes life meaningful, more than it already is. :D
Haha, I felt that way after IB, but after the intense year of medicine I had, I feel they should compensate me by stopping me from studying for the next two years. I'm reading novels, too! What's your pick?
I reaaaaaaally want to play VI, but I don't have a Nintendo and the PSN version's only in Japanese. Awaiting that day when it gets released on the American PSN. I'm playing through XII, too! When I was younger I never paid attention to any game's storyline, and I think I'm an idiot for it, but I'm now on a path to redemption. XD I have to replay KH and KH2 for the same reason. Shhh, don't tell anyone else.
Haha, I did the surprise a friend thing, too. It's always nice to see that expression on people's faces when they least expect you. Except my friend was working at Aldo, and she had to act all professional. Which she didn't. XD I've never been surprised before. I wonder how I'd react.
Yeah, I never really cared much for the extravagant parties and such. I still hung out with friends, I still had the cake, but I saw it as just another day.
Definitely back in Singapore...and have been for a week now omg. This means my holiday's already one week shorter. D: Well, once you get over the jetlag, it's definitely all positives. The thing you miss the most when you're far abroad: hugs. It's all the small things that make you smile. The things you never really notice when you're still living at home but which scream at you when you're gone. Haha, look at me getting all sentimental.
