BLOG -- Recap of February

February was pretty uneventful since I was mainly shut up in my room when I wasn't at work. The cold weather really keeps me indoors, since I freeze really fast. I've been kinda itching to go karaoking, but it's too cold... and it gets too dark too soon... ._.

Outings/Events in February:
- Made chocolates at my sister's place for Valentine's Day.

- Hung out with a friend x1.

- Stayed over at my sister's place x2.

- "Traded away" a bunch of my games. That will clean up my room by just a little bit.

- I cleared one of my New Year's Resolutions. It's one of the easy ones... but I'm still happy! lol

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn achievements / news: 
-I've unlocked two crafting master book IVs on my main character.
-Ever since patch 3.2, I've been q'ing the old trials more often and I am totally enjoying it. There are several old runs that I really love and I'm glad to be able to experience them again -- even though queue times can still really suck for a dps. Some of my favourite old trials are Ultima HM, Titan EX, Turn 5 Coil, Crystal Tower. I also really love Leviathan EX and Shiva EX, but no real need to run them right now.

- Nothing this month.

- (Movie): Deadpool -- Overall it was enjoyable, although not all of the humour hit home for me. I liked the love story.

- (Anime): Steins; Gate -- It was really good. Between the video game or the anime series, I'd prefer the video game, though.

- (PS3): Steins; Gate -- Very long but very engrossing story. My favourite character is Suzuha. I love her determination, and I want her "tight belly" (as Mr. Braun calls it), lol.

- (3DS): Liberation Maiden -- The story and gameplay didn't really do anything for me, although I liked everything else -- the animations, design, music. I actually played this with my sister since the controls were not left-handed friendly. In this game, you're supposed to use the directional buttons to move your character and also use the stylus to shoot baddies at the same time. Can't really do both of those with one hand so... my sister used the directional buttons and I used the stylus, lol.

- (3DS): Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures -- I beat this in Easy mode and I have no regrets. I think I'd get wayy too frustrated if I tried this on Normal difficulty. The music was decent retro, and the levels were kinda fun... but only if you didn't die too much. My total death count was 314. Total time played was 226 minutes, 50 seconds. 

- (PS4): Never Alone -- It was an okay game. I liked that it had local co-op and some thoughtful puzzles. I kept dying a lot though, lol.

- Nothing at this time.

- (PS4): Dragon Ball Xenoverse

That's it for February. Here are a couple of pics I took this month.

 This is some sushi candy-making kit thing that my sister and I tried making.
I'd like to say we were quite successful!

Another shot of the candy sushi.
I thought they would be overly sweet but they weren't.
I especially liked the taste and texture of the fish roe.

Thanks for reading! As usual, if you have any questions / comments about anything, feel free. :)


  1. The popin cooking sushi kits are amazing. I keep wanting to buy more, but I can't justify spending $5-7 on a kit to make awful tasting candy.

    I need to watch Deadpool although...

    1. Hey, thanks for the comment! I find the candy a decent taste, though I kinda think the price is more for the experience than the taste, lol.

      And yes, totally watch Deadpool when you get the chance! :)
