I’ve been quiet lately. Life is a bit hectic these days, so I haven’t had the time to post anything. Today was a busy day. I tried to sleep in, but there were people knocking on everyone’s door, trying to spread the good word or something. Don’t bang on my door before noon on a Saturday. Seriously. Fuck off. Unless you’re giving me a million dollars or some shit, do NOT wake me up on a weekend. I could hear them asking our neighbors about their problems and offering to help them through prayer or whatever. So when they knocked on our door, we just ignored it. But still, all the voices outside and the knocking woke me up. That really pissed me off.
After eating breakfast, I paid some bills and then played some Final Fantasy XIV. I got my Dark Knight to 45 and then discovered that the Heavensward jobs don’t get a gear set like the other jobs do. Oh well. I’ll just FATE farm in Northern Thanalan until I hit 50. I’m pretty sure I’ve got a ton of level 50 tank gear.
I got my nails done this afternoon. As always, my nail artist did amazing things. They somehow make me think of candy.
I sent my husband grocery shopping while I got my nails done so that we could go straight to wine tasting once I was done. I made chickpea and broccoli curry for dinner and then we played more Final Fantasy XIV.
Once I got my roulettes and everything done, I decided to make another attempt at passing the tutorial in Dark Souls III. That stupid boss kept killing me! Over and over and over! I got to the point where I refused to give up JUST because I had been at it for so long. I was just being ridiculously stubborn. It ultimately paid off, but it took me THREE FREAKING HOURS to finally defeat that one boss! And if you’re a Dark Souls aficionado, you’d know that it wasn’t even a REAL boss! It was just a fight designed to teach you mechanics and strategies. I was SO frustrated. And I was streaming on Twitch the entire time, too. That must have been so painful to watch… At least I finally got past it.
I’m a Herald, by the way. Perhaps I would have had an easier time if I rolled a different class like Knight or something, but this class seemed interesting. I’ll probably regret my decision later. I’m already regretting it! LOL XD
It’s been a LONG time since I posted my latest manicure. I have the best nail artist. People are always surprised at the fact that I love bling on my nails. I’m not exactly a blingy person, you know?
In other news, I created my Backlog of Shame. It’s a list of all the games I want to play/finish. I didn’t add games that are ongoing with no real end. I wonder how many of these games I can kick off my list…
In honor of the New Year, I wanted something colorful and sparkly. I’ve started getting gel instead of just regular polish because it lasts way longer and there are things they can do with gel that just can’t be done with polish. The down side to that, though, is that I don’t change the design as often. It’s a fair price to pay, though.
I also made a New Year’s resolution: to wear lipstick everyday. The idea is to just put a small amount of effort into my appearance instead of being lazy. So far I’m succeeding, but it’s only been 13 days. We’ll see if I can keep it up. 😛
Sorry that took so long. I got blindsided by a migraine or something. (I don’t actually KNOW if it was a migraine, but it sure seemed similar to what my migraine suffering friends have described.)
Anyway, red polish with silver glitter polish and silver iridescent holograms. Sadly, just after my husband snapped this photo, I decided to eat ramen with chopsticks, thinking that the polish was dry. So I totally messed up the right middle finger. /sigh Oh well, now I know that freshly painted nails and chopsticks don’t mix! Let that be a lesson to you… LOL
I’m still trying to figure out why my computer doesn’t like Final Fantasy and I’ve been so busy at work that I only have enough time during lunch to actually eat my lunch and then I have to get back to work, so I’ve been horribly remiss in posting here. I apologize for that. Hopefully I’ll be back to posting once a weekday soon. My next computer troubleshooting plan is to install Windows 8.1. We’ll see how that works.
In the meantime, here is my latest manicure. It’s Halloween themed, but I didn’t really want orange. I kinda hate orange…
This nail is my favorite. It’s a black cat with a black moon.
Here’s a nifty spiderweb.
The left hand with the cat and the web.
An adorable vampire ghost.
The right hand with the ghost and the stars.
Nude polish deep French manicure with rainbow holograms and gold glitter polish.
Wednesday is my husband’s birthday and the following Tuesday is our 9 year wedding anniversary. So I asked my husband what his favorite color is and he said that he didn’t really have one, but that he liked blue, green, and black. So I told my nail artist that and gave her free reign to do whatever she wanted. This is what she came up with:
