It's been a while, so...time for a Croik Update! In list form!

The Good

-I've been making Frisbees Flying Sports Discs for 90 days now, so today I got to fill out papers for health insurance! And I get dental and vision, too! SCORE

-I got my brother a job at the plant too, so for the next few weeks he's living with me and TK to save up money. I now have access to his Wii and the single Wii game that interests me. I also made a Lt. Carter Blake Mii when he wasn't looking.

-I got Super Street Fighter IV!

-[ profile] gyakusai_rp is fighting strong and the disbarment is only two days away! It's pretty ridiculous how much fun the anticipation is.

The Bad

-My worst work-related fear was realized the other day, but it didn't happen to me: a co-worker of mine accidentally tripped his machine while his hand was still under the stamping iron. He was lucky not to break any fingers, but they took him to the hospital with second degree burns! I wasn't there to see it or anything but it's really freaky. Poor guy :(

-I am terribly behind updating CR >.>;; And writing, and the quilt I'm working on, and cosplay (though I did get the fabric!). Blah too many projects. Need more time.

-I suck at Super Street Fighter IV!

-Kinda want to advertise [ profile] courtroomlobby, kinda scared of it becoming DR-ish. You people reading my LJ, check it out! (psst it's an open RP comm for AA)

-Ong Bak 2 was an extreme disappointment.

The Wave

I actually finished this a while ago but it took time to get my room together and clean enough to take a proper picture.

Which is just behind the cut! )

Thought I'd post an in-progress shot of my wall mural! Here it is with the white finished (and a little blue color test). My room is short so it's hard to photograph but I think it's coming along very well.

In other news I rented Bayonetta and finished it. It was fun, but I can't say I'm a huge fan of it. The action was fast paced and the bosses HUUUUUUGE but the characters themselves bored me to sleep. Now I'm playing Darksiders, which feels very slow and clunky by comparison, but I really like War's VA so I'm hoping he'll, like, talk more.

Any other games about demons vs angels I need to check out while I'm at it!?

I also heard a little tidbit about Assassin's Creed III which I am compelled to talk about here.

Under a cut, because there are ACII spoilers )
croik: (I'll Odeko YOU!!!)
It's a little late to say Happy New Year but HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS BEFORE THAT!!

2009 was a pretty decent year over all! I want to say a big "<3 you" to all my buddies here on LJ. I really wish I could have sent holiday gifts this year but financially it just wasn't possible for me I'm afraid ;o; (I've gone from possibly 3 jobs back down to just translating, boo). But you guys are all awesome and I appreciate you so much.

"We don't need you to work here anymore" aside, I had a lovely holiday with my family. Had Xmas dinner with my dad's siblings and families, hosted my brother for a few days, and then my parents spent New Years with us and helped us do some work on the house. TK and our dad built a bench for our kitchen table (so cute!) and we painted the upstairs hall and downstairs bathroom. That is our family's idea of vacation, seriously.

And I got some sweet holiday swag )

Have a happy 2010 :D
