My life so far…Music Monday #32

Ok I have been away from blogging for a while…sorry everyone I just got busy and really lazy xD. I am combining a quick update (sort of like a re-cap for my life lol) with this week’s MM. I will just post a couple songs after I am done talking about my dull life ^_^;

Last time I posted I was starting to organize my room a little better…found some things I thought were lost but now my room is somewhat in a mess again. I doubt it can be rescued but I did re-order my games and books backlogs so that I have easy access to them whenever I feel like catching up. So all I have been doing in my free time for the past couple weeks is playing games, watching dramas, anime, TV shows and reading books. I did catch up with people but spent most of my time drowning in my hobbies lol. I had “The Hunger Games” on my reading list for a while now but I didn’t get to it until recently because my friend wanted to go see the movie when it came out. I ended up reading the book and saw the movie yesterday and though I enjoyed the movie I always feel like the books are better. I feel like they could’ve done a much better job at the movie because the book wasn’t really all that long (374 pages). I was reading “The Black Prism” before but it has been on the back burner for a while now because I have been reading the Gears of War books which are pretty amazing in themselves. I finished up “Aspho Fields” which is the first one and certain parts in the book moved me. I am really enjoying Karen Traviss’s writing style. The books are based on the same universe as the games but they follow their own story line. What I am trying to say is that even if you haven’t played the game I have a feeling that you could pick up the book and still enjoy it :D. It does make me look-up words more often because I haven’t really read war-related books before but I like increasing my vocab anyways! I am currently reading “Jacinto’s Remnant” and should be done with it soon…I will move onto the 3rd book next. There are four books out currently and the 5th one will come out in May so hopefully I can finish up all of them to be ready for what seems to be the last one in the series. Anyways I am wondering if any of you all who do like reading have any place where you keep track of your reading lists. Let me know if you do…I remember having a shelfari account before but now I don’t remember the account info ^_^;

Moving on a LOT of my time has been devoted to playing video games. I got back into them sometime around August/September last year and I decided to jump into XBL. I was against the whole idea before thanks to some bad experiences but I soon met some nice people and now I am kind of addicted to playing online xD. I find the experience quite enjoyable to be honest. I like playing with my friends locally but a lot of games have split screens for local co-op and I don’t really like those >_>. After the whole live thing I also have been severely bitten by the “achievement/completion” bug which makes me go after achievements and trying to finish a game entirely before I move onto the next one. It has been sort of slowing me down but the satisfaction on completing a game is worth it :D. I will keep going as long as it keeps me happy…if it ever becomes a burden I think I will give up and I hope that if and when that time comes I will have the will power to do so! That said the games I am currently playing are – Gears of War (new DLC comes out tomorrow :3), AC:Brotherhood, KUF:Circle of Doom and just started Borderlands! I guess I am in a shooters phase these days because I guess I like playing with people on live now instead of playing an RPG by myself. Borderlands is fun so far…the art style is anime/cartoon-ish and there is a big variety of guns that you can play with! Figuring out what works best for me might take a while though!

Anyways that was all of my nerdy rant right there. I do have some fun stuff that happened at work but I will save that for another time xD. Even though the weather today is pretty bad I am surprised at how time flew by so fast and it is almost summertime. I am hoping I can have a more active summer this time around and hopefully it will be a good one ^_^. I don’t have any big plans but I am definitely going to make a Boston trip. From the looks of it I am not going to make it to Anime Boston this year T_T. I guess I might as well save up and splurge to my heart’s content at the next chance I get to go to a convo.

Ok I guess time to post those MM songs then! Before I start I have to say that I absolutely love Big Bang’s new album <3. When I first heard them I liked them...but the more I listen to them, the more I fall in love with them XD. I love Blue but the one I will share is Bad Boy because I find it very catchy.

The next one is also KPop…Know Your Name by Jay Park. This song is catchy and the MV is fun to watch with pretty neat choreography :D

The next one is by one of my favorite bands – Lost In You by Three Days Grace. I like the song as well as the lyrics.

Lastly, I created a new playlist recently for instrumentals that I like listening to while I code…and I ended up listening to the AC:II theme song on repeat for hours lol. The title of this song is Heart.

Well that’s it for now. I will try to be here more often :D

I am the dragonborn!

I was cleaning my room the other day and found my dragon bracelet that I thought was lost…hence the inspiration for this post lol (I also wanted to post something besides MM and PF hehe). Technically I am a dragon born XD. Let me explain…I am talking about Chinese zodiac according to which I am a dragon (02/17/1988-02/05/1989) :D. Even if I was not a dragon, I am sure I would still be very much into dragons. I have always been fascinated by these “legendary creatures”. I love reading about them, watching them in movies/media and playing dragon related games as well (oh Skyrim you will have to wait till I am ready to end my social life T_T). Literature has always portrayed these creatures in different lights but I like to go with the mythological views. Anyways let’s get back to my obsession love for these amazing beings. Random fact – 2012 is the year of the dragon…so all my fellow dragons we are going to kick ass ;) ( I apologize for the bad image quality…these pics were taken from my cell phone camera as I was too lazy to dig out my DSLR lol)

I moved into my current apartment last year around April. Being fresh out of college, I didn’t invest much into furniture. I still am quite hesitant to invest into anything pricy and/or big because chances are I will relocate and moving by myself has always been a big pain :(. My priced possessions include my 40″ LCD HDTV and my electronic devices. However I have always liked decorating my house with posters, magnets, wall decors and other geeky stuff. Yes I happen to have a lot of Asian decors that include dragons. This wall scroll is my favorite one <3

I also like this dragon pendant that I own. It is nothing special but I love wearing it. It sort of defines my personality :3. I am sure there’s more stuff hidden in my messy collection somewhere that I have forgotten about now because I don’t wear anything to work lol (bracelets, earrings and stuff).

Do you have a favorite legendary creature/animal? Do you like personalizing your accessories?
