BLOG -- Recap of July

July was a really busy month, work-wise and not. I mean, I had events to organize... and then a ton of work to do. I'm super glad that I'm getting a couple of vacation days after today. Seeing as I've only taken one vacation day so far this year, I most definitely need it! 

Outings/Events in July:
- Celebrated my birthday x2.

- Went to root for the company I work for, who was competing in a volleyball tournament.

- Ate at a restaurant that was part of Summerlicious.

- Had a sleepover at my sister's place x2.

- Hung out with friends x7 (5 were meetups with my sister).

- Attended a Summer Matsuri festival downtown. 

- Organized a digging event in my virtual town with real life friends in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

- Had a Team BBQ (Alice in Wonderland themed)

- (drink) Fuzzy Navel -- Kinda orangy, but not bad.

- (food place) Menchie's -- This place is pretty cool for a snack.

- (restaurant) Eat Fresh Be Healthy -- This was the restaurant we went to for Summerlicious. The food is good!

- (restaurant) Burger Priest -- I would like this place more if all the burgers on the menu weren't some kind of cheeseburger. The taco fries are good.

- (board game place) Castle Board Game Cafe -- This is similar to Snakes & Lattes, but more downtown and smaller.

- (Anime OVA): Ys -- It's kinda cheesy, but good music. I wonder how closely it follows the video game series.

- (Anime OVA): Project Blue Earth: SOS -- I don't know why, but this seems like it was designed as a feature-length movie. The music has movie-like qualities to it. The animation quality is nice. Some character emotions are too rushed, though.

- (Anime OVA): Princess Rouge: Legend of the Last Labyrinth -- It's meh. It had potential, but that's about it.

- (Movie): Red 2 -- Not as good as the first one. Really nice cast, though! I loved seeing Helen Mirren again.

- (Movie): Human Centipede -- I think I saw this last month and forgot to mention it. What a disturbing movie. I don't think I could watch this again.

- (PSN): Walking Dead: 400 Days

- (Manga): Gunslinger Girl by Yu Aida -- It was totally worth the wait to read its final pages.

Playing (not all at once):
- (PS3): Folklore 
- (PS3): Borderlands 2
- (PS3): Sleeping Dogs  
- (PS3): Heavy Rain 
- (DS): Legacy of Ys: Book I & II
- (DS): Contact
- (3DS): Animal Crossing: New Leaf
- (3DS): Shin Megami Tensei IV
- (PSP): Persona 
- (Wii): Fortune Street
- (PS2): Atelier Iris 2
- (PS2): Shadow Hearts
- (PC): UnEpic
- (PC): King's Bounty: The Legend

- (Anime): Yu Yu Hakusho 
- (Anime): Shakugan no Shana
- Nothing this time.

That's it for July. Here's a couple of random photos from this month:
