BLOG -- Recap of October

October... well... despite how busy things were for me, this was a very sucky month for me. I spoke too soon when I said there was little drama in my life, 'cuz now I am sorta drowning in it. Well, maybe that is an exaggeration, but that's how I feel. I won't mention or talk about this again in future blogs (sorry, but I find this to be too personal even for this space), but I'll say this: I hope that in the end, friendship will prevail -- that's all that matters to me.

Outings/Events in October:
- Celebrated my friends' birthdays x3. 

- Celebrated a relative's birthday... and the relative did not show up... >.>''.

- Briefly attended the Creativ Festival to support my sister who had a booth there.

- Attended a friend's bridal shower.

- Met up with my friend's friend for the first time. It was okay -- no commonality in games, though, lol.

- Went shopping with friends (a shopping day with friends is very rare for me).

- Stayed over at my sister's place x1.

- Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn achievements / news: 
-Participated in a cosplay event with my main character. It was kinda stressful, but really fun. I'll post some pics up whenever I get around to grabbing them from my PS4.
-Got Monk, Ninja, Machinist, Dragoon, and Paladin classes to 50 for my main character. Lots of leveling, haha.
-Changed my main character's race. I consider it my Halloween "costume". My main character's look is now on one of my alts.

- (Restaurant) Kimchi Korea House -- This is a Korean place with pretty yummy food. I fairly enjoyed the takoyaki dish I ordered from them.

- (Restaurant) WVRST -- I don't know how to pronounce this place, but they serve various sausages / hot dogs and fries. They're supposedly really known for their duck fat fries.

- (Movie): A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master -- This is pretty cheesy. Besides the character deaths, I was able to sleep pretty well that night (this is very rare for me after watching a horror movie).

- (Anime): Heaven's Memo Pad -- This was an okay series, though I felt very disconnected from many of the characters. I only kinda felt anything around the last few episodes.

- (Anime): Children who Chase Lost Voices -- Umm... I did not enjoy this very much...

- (Anime): Canaan -- I had no idea that this was based off the game 428 until I read the credits (428's been on my radar for a long time, even though I know nothing about the game). Overall, I didn't have much care for the series, but I felt strongly for Santana and Hakko's story.

- Nothing at this time.

- (Novel): Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead -- I did NOT like this book. I lost a lot of respect for Rose halfway through. The ending also felt very rushed. What a way to end a series... *sigh* XP

- (Novel): The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky -- I liked it... and I hated it. At times it felt too immersive, when I really didn't want to be looking at the world through the eyes of a 15/16-year-old guy. I liked that it made me think, but it also challenged a couple of beliefs that I hold very close to me. In its own small ways, this book has unhinged me, hahaha.

Those hedgehog decorations are so cute.

Duck fat fries. I liked the taste. Smooth and salty, lol.

Mmmm... Takoyaki... <3
