There’s a difference, between a test, and a choice…

The Matrix has me…

The Matrix has me…
The Matrix has me…
The Matrix has me…

Knock Knock, Neo.

These four days will be the void of my life – Come on, where is my red pill, where is my red pill.

Nothing productive came out of my fingers. I wake up everyday feeling like crap and going to sleep waiting to wake up feeling like crap. Follow the white rabbit.

Actually, I went to Camelot for the second time this week to kill time. No real accomplishments – I’m terrible at playing double again. House of the Dead 3 is very, very fun though… but without a partner your hands will go numb in 5 mintues – no kidding this time. I mean, I can’t make it pass half of first stage alone and I paired up with this random guy (which is actually really good at the game) and we got all the way up to the level 2 boss with one life. Of course, afterwards, I see veins coming out of my hands. Those shotguns are wayyy too heavy for me to handle.

It is ironic, that one can be more at peace, in a virtual world.

As for DDR, if it accounts for anything, I’ve finally gotten the beat of Matsuri Japan Springy Mix down and I can safely tackle it on single/double, and I get to witness anti-boost with my very own eyes. Of course, seeing how the arrows are just squeezing into a singularity, I might as well try playing the song on Hidden, which is what I did, and I failed miserably (that’s not even in an Oni, that’s bloody 3rd stage!).

Of course, having five songs per game also means more experimentation. Trip Machine Survivor = Trippy. God, that reminds me why I never liked Trip Machine(s) from the first one to the last one. Legend of Max standard is really tricky. Fun, though, since I like the song and those steps are conquerable, I’m quite happy not to move on to heavy – yet.

Oooh, while we’re on the subject of Legend of Max, I finally get to see someone doing the song on Beginner. Trippy. I’d bet nobody can copy the demonstration guys and go *stomp up* *return center* *up down jump* *return center* *stomp down*… in like 300+ BPM. Seeing how the demo guys tempo change is just golden.

I’ve also made it through Cartoon Heroes. Nothing to brag about, really – I put everything on 1.5x Solo now, which I accidentally did to Across the Nightmare. Thank God I wasn’t playing double, and miraculously I passed. I’m also more consistent in AAing double 7 footers and single 8 footers. Unfortunately, my legs got shot after I AA The Magic Door (single though). It’s different than all the other cramps I’ve had, though; usually it’s just the shin that jerks and hurts; this time my leg feels numb. First it’s my left leg, then when I started driving home and I ran into freeway jam, suddenly my right leg starts going numb too. Oh yeah, that traffic jam pisses me off – I thought if I’m sitting still for like 5 minutes before moving an inch, somebody really needs to be dead when I get pass the traffic jam… I mean, it’s that malicious feeling that if it’s such a show-stopper, it’d better be a good show. No such luck – there’s just one truck in perfectly fine condition and like 5 Highway Patrol guys standing around chatting and having coffee and eating donuts. Makes me feel like I want to run them over GTA style.

The body cannot live without the mind.

Of course, there’s a reason for me to be typing so much about so much nonsense. While I was at Camelot, I took a shot of double cone ice-cream; then a large coke; then I went home and have some more 7 up. I’m so sugar loaded right now I can probably keep on typing until I blow up some storage limit in LJ or class starts at tomorrow 11 AM, whichever comes first.

I’m also goalless lately since Ronin; I want to start working on my next project but I want to take care of my friend’s stuff first and my arm just isn’t getting around to do it, which is hurting because I have art lessons to teach and my lowered quality shows; even though they felt generous to change schedule this week so I got $10 extra this week (which I blew easily over about 10 games of double in Camelot).

Financial situation = bad. I’ll be receiving almost nothing in grants next year. I hate it when I do something too late when I know I should have done it earlier but I do it and then later when you can’t change it you can’t do anything but feel frustrated and regretful all day long. Well that’s how I am feeling with Financial Aid right now. Other things come in mind, of course. Ooops, better swap.
