Outings/Events in May:- Hung out with friends overall x1
- A good co-worker friend was let go... =___=
- Visited Japan for 2 weeks. I'll be blogging about this in due time!
- Stayed over at my sister's place x0.
- Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn achievements / news:
-I re-subbed but haven't done much.
- Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius achievements / news:
-My rank is currently 154 (yay I can leave the game alone for 13 hours 55 mins)
-I got my Liquid Metal Slime!
-I'm just waiting for the Valkyrie Profile banner... and possibly another Noctis banner if he comes along.
Exposures:- (Video Game): Demetrios: The Big Cynical Adventure -- I wanted to like this game, but the writing and characterizations didn't grab me. I think it tried too hard to be "cynical".
- (Mobile): One Piece Treasure Cruise -- I tried this out while Brave Exvius was under maintenance. It's pretty interesting. I run out of character box space way too quickly, but I enjoy playing the story mode and trying to get and evolve units I like. Ahhh, Ace and Sanji... <3
- (Food): Sushi Burger -- This was a menu item from Sushi Shop. I tried the Salmon one and really liked it! At first glance it looks like a small burger, but it's actually quite filling, at least for me. I'd eat it again!
Watching:- (Movie): Rambo: First Blood -- I love Trautman's speech about Rambo. Great stuff.
- (Movie): Rambo: First Blood Part II -- This was good, but could have used more character development... and uhh... more romance, hehe.
- (Movie): Rambo Part III -- I liked seeing Trautman in the battle field but was so scared for his safety. This was okay.
- (Movie): Blade of the Immortal -- I watched this just 'cuz it was directed by Takashi Miike. The main character... is pretty bad with a sword... >__<
- (Movie): Maze Runner: Death Cure -- Forgettable.
- (Movie): Cook Up A Storm -- A little hokey at parts but more or less enjoyable. I would have loved more screen time on the food-making.
- (Movie): Permanent -- Very meh.
- (Movie): Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle -- Entertaining and funny. Recommended for at least one watching.
Playing:- (3DS): Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth -- I looooooooved this game!! Even though I was a bit nooby in terms of battle strategy, I loved everything about the game -- the mapmaking, the differing battle mechanics from other Persona games, the characters. I was a little sad when I beat it... but it'll just go on my re-play pile with other SMT / Persona games I've beaten. I mean -- I still gotta play it from P3's side, lol :3

That's it for May. Aside from my time in Japan, not too many of my photos were too interesting this month so here are a couple sneak peeks for those future Japan blogs, plus a YouTube video.
Do you see something in the far distance? :)
but this performance was something I watched
over and over while in Japan. I'm so glad I recorded it
while it was on TV!
Trautman's awesome speech about Rambo in Rambo First Blood.
I don't think it's spoilery, but this does happen about halfway through the movie.
I especially loved his line at around 1:04 and 1:36.
Thanks for reading!
As usual, if you have any questions / comments about anything, feel free. :)
