BLOG -- Recap of March

March came and went pretty quickly. I ended up getting busy work-wise these past 2 weeks, and I'm still pretty busy (blahhhhhhh). I've also been watching a lot of movies, lol. 

Ever since Kingsman: The Secret Service, I now have this tiny goal to watch as many movies as I can get my hands on... that has Colin Firth in it. Hahaha, I've become a big fan. It's kinda funny. Many people would find Colin Firth playing Kingsman's Harry Hart as unlikely or unexpected. For me, that was my first real exposure to him -- so Colin Firth playing a character like Harry Hart is the norm for me. That just means I'm going to be in for a lot of surprises as I go through his filmography. I can't wait! XD

Outings/Events in March:
- Stayed over at my sister's place x2. 

- Hung out with friends x1. 

- Had a Gaming Day with my sister, her fiance, and a friend.

- Went wedding dress shopping for my sister with friends.

- Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn achievements / news: 
-I've created another character on another server. One of my friends transferred to another NA server so I created a character there so I can still play with him, lol. I've just created a solo FC with that character as well, hahaha. :D
-The FC my main character is a part of had a fashion/lingerie show event, and my character was a model! I'll post up pics whenever I grab them from my PS4.

-FUNNY NOTE: A couple weeks ago, I found out through Lodestone that somebody created a character with the same name as my main character -- and guess where this character was created? In the JP server my main character transferred out of back in December. This means that if I ever wanted to transfer my main character back to that JP server, I'd have to spend $10 US to change her name (edit: I was informed after this posting that if you transfer to a server where your character name is already taken, you'll be forced to change your character's name instead of having to pay $10)

Now -- this doesn't bother me, but I can't help but laugh at it. I guess somebody really doesn't like me over there. If you are wondering why I think that character was created out of malice instead of coincidence, here is my reasoning: the first time I found out about it, the character was a Level 1 Marauder. I just checked that character's page today, and the character's still a Level 1 Marauder. No progress or anything. 

Just so anybody knows, my main character is currently on Masamune server, and I'm probably gonna stay there with my main character for as long as I'm playing. I enjoy the FC there. Another thing: when I create alt characters, I NEVER use the same name. So if you ever meet somebody on another server with the same name as my characters, it's not me, lol. :P

- (Wii U) Mario Party 10 -- This is fun.

- (Restaurant) Buk Chang Dong Soon Tofu -- I guess it's a good place for people who like tofu dishes. I personally thought the selection was small.

- (DVD rental shop) Bay St. Video -- A friend suggested this place to me a long time ago and I finally worked up the nerve to check it out. I can get pretty antsy when going to a new place. Rental prices are pretty decent and they offer a list of titles to rent for free, so please check it out if you live around there.

- (Movie): Kingsman: The Secret Service (x3) -- I can totally watch this many more times, too. In fact, I plan to watch it at least one more time (if I can restrain myself from watching it more times).

- (Movie): The English Patient -- This was toooo long, lol. I liked parts of it. I really hated Katherine, though.

- (Movie): Disney's A Christmas Carol -- Creepy! I wonder how close this is to the original ('cuz I've never watched the original version of "A Christmas Carol").

- (Movie): Magic in the Moonlight -- Emma Stone and Colin Firth were really good. The situations were kinda boring though.

- (Movie): Another Country -- I was surprised to find myself enjoying this a lot, being a pretty old movie. There were some interesting ideas.

- (Anime): Sword Art Online (Season 1) -- I really liked the first half. The second half was good, too, but I didn't enjoy it as much.

- (Anime): Kokoro Connect (TV Series) -- This is cute, and kinda gritty. It was not at all what I was expecting, and I'm not sure right now if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

- (PS4): Dynasty Warrior 8 Empires -- This is an addictive game. I created an officer in the likeness of each vocaloid, hahahaha (Hatsune Miku, Kaito, Rin, Len, Luka, Meiko). I'm waiting for a good time to restart it.

- (3DS): Weapon Shop de Omasse -- This is an addictive game, too. The ending was kinda ehhh, though, so I'd suggest getting it during a sale.

- (Manga): Judge by Yoshiki Tonogai -- The mystery was interesting, but overall it's pretty meh...

- Nothing at the time.

That's it for March. Here is one photo I took this month plus one Youtube video / interview I enjoy listening to.

 Some crackers with a ridiculous price tag. I think it was a pricing error.

Interview with Colin Firth and Taron Egerton about Kingsman: The Secret Service, 
done by VOST Cinema. They show some clips from the movie, so don't watch it 
unless you don't mind spoilers or you've watched the movie. 
I think the interview is pretty insightful and funny.

Have a good rest of the weekend and thanks for reading! And be careful of possible upcoming pranks! (not from me, though -- I've had no time to plan anything this time, lol) :)


  1. Aw man, I still have yet to see Kingsmen. Maybe when I come visit we can go see it?

    Yay, for SAO, there is another season that follows the light novel. I will not spoil a thing of the season though. Anything in particular from SAO that you liked?

    1. If it's still playing at a good time when you're in town and I don't have any other plans set, sure! I check movie times every week now to see if it's still playing _next_ week, hahahaha. Kingsman's been out in theatres for over a month now, so it's probably nearing the end of its run, though I hope I'm wrong! lol

      Yes, I know about there being a Season 2 for SAO. I'm not sure when I'm going to start that up -- most likely after I've watched some anime series in my actual collection (aka, the DVD / Blu-Ray collection that keeps piling up >.>'').

      From the first season, I enjoyed the whole concept in the first half, and I wanted to see more of the world. I'd say more but I think it'd be going into spoiler territory, lol.
