A long walk day. We toured D.C. Today. We started with walking to the world war II, Washington, and Lincoln memorials, then we walked on to the Smithsonian. We started in the national air and space museum, and after walking through a few exhibits, my mom and I stopped because the walk from the Lincoln memorial to the Smithsonian is long as hell. I bought a plasma globe, then we went on to the American history museum. I only went to look at the musical instrument exhibit, and most of it was closed so I could only see the classical instruments display, but it was still nice to see. I picked up a pocket watch for my collection from the gift store, then we met up with my dad to get dinner and go home. We sopped at a tj maxx to get Chad a belt, and my dad my dad and I walked to the Chinese restaurant nearby, we ordered our food and we ate. After this, we stopped at the local drug store to get some shampoo and such for the last 5 days in the states. I’m back in the hotel now, it’s almost 11. Night world, tomorrow is philadelphia, then back to NY. I still have to do my shopping for myself and my friends.
Nothing significant. Most of today was spent on the drive to Washington D.C. After we got there, we spent a good 2 hours looking for a hotel. We’re staying in a Marriott in a town just outside of D.C., about 30 minutes away. Tomorrow we’re gonna go see the sights; namely The Smithsonian and something else I can’t remember. Hopefully we take some time so I can get some stuff for my friends, and I need some new pants. I’m writing this early so I don’t have to later. Night world.
since hurricane Irene hit, everything was closed. After I woke up, my aunt and mom asked me to run to the cornerstore to get some milk, and anything else I liked. I walked in, and walked out with about 4.1L of Arizona, which cost me only $5. I walked home and ate my cereal. We watched a couple of moives, and did nothing.
Mym mom’s firend and her sons came over for dinner and we all watched 2 Fast 2 Furious and The Social Network. None of us really talked, and we all ate so it was alright. One my mom’s friend’s sons is coming with us to Washington D.C. and Philidalphea with us, which is gonna be alright I guess.
Night world, probably no internet for the next 2 days, so the next post will be ridiculously short.
On the 26th we flew into NY. The plane ride was about 4 hours, and I watched “Rango”. No man can walk out on his own story.
On the 27th, we did a quick drive thrugh NY before Irene hit. I learned the difference between a bull and a bear market, by seeing the bull in new york. Aside from that, we went to my mom’s friends house an I chilled with her kids, and we just played video games and talked.
Yeah, 2 days summed up in a few sentences.
The hurricane was not intimidating at all. It was like a thunderstorm back home. The whole state made a huge deal about it when it did shit all in the end.
I woke up to a text from Jay saying when we were meeting up. We were going to meet at Chinook Station so that Gen didn’t have to go too far. I caught the bus with Jay, and we ran into Hailey and Godfrey. Today I learned Hailey didn’t know a single thing about DBZ, so Godfrey and I felt ashamed. I also took her phone and put some hentai on it so that she can know what it was. Without a doubt, one of the most entertaining bus rides I’ve had in while. When we got to the station, we ran into Nikki where we said hellos and talked a bit. After Jay and I got to chinook and met with Gen, we decided to go downtown.
When we got to the downtown core, we went to TD Square. Genina and Jay wanted to dress me up, so I went along with it. They stuff the picked out actually lookd nice on me, except the pants were too huge and I was too broke to afford it. I still got a v-neck, since I needed one anyway. We kept walking around the store, and Genina tried on an outfit. While she was trying it on, Jay and I talked about dramas, ulzzangs and so on. We walked out a little later and got some food to eat.
After our lunch, we walked to some benches near Chinatown. Jay and I sat on a bench that allowed us to scout girls, and Gen felt bad cause we were doing that. It was all in good fun though, we all had a laugh later. Genina and I dropped off Jay at the station since he had to go to work. Genina and I went to Chinook to catch a movie, and there we ran into a certain someone whom I won’t name but still terribly dislike. After this short run in, Gen and I went on into the theatre, and we decided to watch Horrible Bosses. About 45 minutes in, I got a call from Godfrey asking me to sneak him in. I agreed, borrowed Genina’s ticket and went out to get him. I saw that certain someone I dislike again, and he came up to me asking me some questions and in the end I just walked away in a pissed off mood.
The thing is I’m not afraid to cut people out of my life who I know will slow me down, or people who I know would take advantage of me. And that’s what I did, I cut him out of my life, because all he would do is slow me down and take advantage of me. I’m not abandoning Cure For the Soul, EVER. I’m gonna see him in school next year which is pathetic, but whatever. I’m better now, and I’m going to continue to be. Nothing stopping me.
K back on track with my day; After the movie, I walked around the mall with Godfrey and Gen helping Godfrey think of things to wear to his interview at Banana Republic tomorrow. After a short 10-minute walk, I had to go back ot the theatre to meet with my mom so I could drive home. We stopped at Banzai to get some food so we didn’t have to cook since we leave tomorrow. After we got home and ate, we went to go visit my Lola to pay our respect before we leave. My grandma gave my brother and I $200 for our trip, and I’m stoked because I plan on buying a lot in New York.
After that, I played some maple, trioing Zakum with JR and Derrick. Rey, Derek and I were quoting BannedStory Collab 2 for fun, and after our trio I logged out of maple after saying goodbyes. I kicked a scammer from the guild, and a little after I noticed I was having a weird outbreak of some kind. I told my parents and we rushed to Shoppers to get some Benadryl, but for some reason my dad first had to stop and move the van 3 inches so he could pull his car ot of the garage, when I was having a reaction to who knows what. After we actually got the meds, I dry swallowed a pill and came home. I updated my mom on the situation and if it starts getting worse or not healing I have to tell her right away. I guess we’d go the the Children’s Hospital, since my whole body so far is breaking out.
I’m calling it a night, so night world. I won’t be able to write as much for the next 10 days, so I’ll continue this challenge whenever I can.
For information regarding 14 hours of today, see day 55.
When I wasn’t playing MapleStory, I was packing my suitcase for my trip to New York. I’m done packing surprisingly, and now I’m just getting ready to leave. I’ll be hanging out with Godfrey, Jay and Genina on Thursday, and unfortunately had to cancel my recording session with Masih because my family is going to be cleaning up tomorrow.
Nothing majorly noteworthy occurred today. In maple I leveled up to 162 finally, and found a recipe for some nice earrings I can make.
I didn’t waste my day today thankfully. I woke up somewhat early, and after eating breakfast I wrote up an up-to-date resume for my job hunt with Godfrey.
After I finished and printed my resume, I put them in an envelope and went to play maple. I made the final decision to leave the LeonKing alliance, and instead alliance with Fate. I made this decision after I opened my shop, and since I didn’t know the leader at the time I had my guild find out who it was for me. When godfrey came over, I moved my laptop downstairs for while he finished off the details of his resume and printed it. We left for the mall a little afterwards.
We started in SouthCentre, where we didn’t really find any places to apply. I left a resume at Kixs since they were accepting for future hire, then we proceeded to Chinook laughing about everything, scouting ulzzangs and me feeling bad because I can’t get myself an ulzzang. We wandered the mall, starting out with Godfrey applying at Banana, and while he was talking to the manager, I was talking to Colin about the job and job hunting. When Godfrey was finished, we walked over to the theatre area, where I left a resume at HMV. Godfrey went to Stoneridge, and when we walked out, we were approached by the district manager, who said she’ll hand both of our resumes to the different stores in the same company as Stoneridge. This opened up opportunities for us at Aldo, Spring, Stoneridge and one other place; This stroke of luck was great news for us, and we continued to the other side of the mall. I left resumes at Bluenotes, Godiva and Heroes. I have a good feeling that godfrey and I will get lucky with our job hunt, especially after running into that district manager.
We stopped for dinner before we went back to stoneridge. Godfrey convinced me to buy this nice pair of shoes, which after sale price was only $37. I felt kind of bad since Godfrey saw them first, but they’re still really nice shoes (I’m wearing them as I write this). I didn’t wear them out of the store though, since I wanted to preserve the niceness, and I like how comfortable my old shoes are since I wore them to shit. Before going to the station we stopped at Mac’s and pick up some Arizona. We hopped the next train, running as far as the second car to see a really cute girl, but she got off the train. Godfrey doesn’t even look for girls for himself, he finds them for me, Archer, Tristan, and other people to look at.
When I got to my stop and we parted ways, I walked straight to my room. My laptop was being weird so I stopped to fix it, then I logged into maple, where Laura told me to find her on facebook, so I did. I did a couple scarga runs, and some random stole 3 helms from us, but whatever. I still have 2 helms worth more than everything he owns in-game. The upside of being a lazy-merchant shows itself. Alex and I had a conversation about our cities after, where she basically described hers as a ghetto, where the tallest man who ever lived was from. I described only Joefels and mine area of Calgary, which is almost full of grow-ops. After our conversation, Alex left and I went to go watch Rob use the last BSC20 book in Zenith. At least until someone stops and mystery book spams again.
I got off of maple for a bit and wrote my school schedule on facebook so I can find out who I have classes with. I decided to write this post, and now I’m going to eat, then maple a little bit more before I go to bed.
Night world, I’m gonna be awake for about another hour but you might not be.
Refer to Day 55 for information regarding 13 hours of the day.
Otherwise, the day was uneventful. The only thing noteworthy was that I got to drive for about 2 hours, going to the registry, my aunt’s house and to the auto-mall to look at cars again. I’ve gotten a lot better, my dad didn’t freak out today.
In maple, I went on a scarga runa nd my entire party died leaving me to solo scarlion. I got 2 helmets with potential, except the potentials are crap.
I woke up at around noon, which is a first for me. I had a crazy dream that I spent about and hour writing here on tumblr. I liked that dream a lot. After writing about my dream, I went downstairs and made myself some soup to eat with rice as my lunch. After lunch, I did my usual routine.
I logged into maple, talked with some people, trained ever so slightly, and accomplished nothing. We’re considering leaving the alliance we joined 3 days ago and joining another one with some different people, the reason why we’re thinking about this is that alliance chat gets annoying sometimes. I got a call later that I can drive to visit my grandma, so I took up the offer.
The drive was easy, and when we got there I saw my unlce who I haven’t seen in years because of family beef. It was kind of awkward, and after he left, my mom gave my grandma another lecture. We left soon after, and then my mom decided to get some stuff we had planned to move out of the house.
My brother, mother and I moved an old chest and desk out of the house. I got to drive independently for a bit, and I learned how to take seats out of my Van. When we were done moving, I returned to maple and did more of nothing.
I watched the final episode of Heartstrings when I was “afk” in maple. It was a good one in my opinion. The lead actress (Park Shin Hye) looked really nice with long hair @_@. You can guess what I did after the episode.
I was with my family, going to the mall. When we arrived, the entire mall was closed but the food court. I saw a girl and she greeted me, but I didn’t know her name. I kept walking, asking “How are you?” as I walked by, slowing and turning slightly. She responded with “I’m okay, thanks.” and I walked on to catch up with my family. This even happened again as we walked, and when we arrived in the food court, we all got our food. My family didn’t sit together.
I went to a roof store where they cook the meal and wrap it in a thick pita-like bread. I ordered a “Riot”, which was one of the largest they had. It was a pita overflowing with barbecued meat and diced onions. When I got my food, I reached for a bottle of very watery sauce, and used the small last bit so dress my meal. I looked over and saw my father sitting with some other people, my brother was nowhere to be seen, and I sat with my mother. After I ate my meal, I blanked out.
I was the student in a large, prestigious school. The students however were from strange backgrounds, with strange characteristics. People in the school had strange pets, like miniature Kraken, griffins and so on. I had a small group of friends, all girls and none I have ever seen before. I don’t recall most of their names, but the smallest and youngest was named Abigail. She was very small, an intellectual kind of girl, who no one ever kept around. She had black hair, and an eye that showed of picture of what she desired; When I was with her, the picture in her eye was always a heart with a golden outline.
One day, I was driving from the dorms to the school (They kept the buildings very far apart.) As I was driving, I hit another vehicle. I got out to apologize and exchange information like you should, but when the other driver got out he began attacking me. It got to the point where everyone was against me, and something in me had snapped. I pulled out a gun and began shooting to defend myself. No one seemed disturbed by the weapon, or by the amount of people I had killed to that point. People in football equipment came from out from the inside of a rock, wearing all blue, looking almost like armour; Helicopters began appearing and I continuted to fight on. At one point I saw one of my professors. I was hiding under a downed helicopter, and asked me to come with him. I shot another helicopter down, then I went with him, scared for my life at that point. I blacked out, then found myself in a small, candlelit room when I came to.
In the room, was a projector and a small, fat boy, about my age. He removed a black mask he was wearing and tried to punch me, but I blocked it. He said to me that I was strong, and born to kill. Looking at the projection, I saw the robes from Assassin’s Creed, but they had been changed slightly. The robes were made like white monks robes, however they were split. The boy explained that the robes were meant to be two halves of a whole, so that there is a boy and a girl who are to fight together, as part of the same entity. The man would always have the top half with the hood and arms, and a small portion that diagonally covers one thigh (Like Altair’s robes from the first game). The women’s half was made with the remainder of the bottom, and looked more like a toga.
As he explained, the image moved. It was hanging with it’s arms above it’s head first, then the arms went out to the side and were nailed like a crucifix. The next image nailed itself to the cross, first using the opposite arm, then using the hand that was being nailed. Never did the image lower its face, it was pale and very slim with fangs, dark circles around its eyes, and no pupils or iris. During its crucifixion, it seemed almost happy as it nailed itself to the cross, when the nails were in its arms already, it was emotionless.
I blacked out again after this explanation and found myself in the school. No one questioned me as I walked.
I found myself in a forest, with the boy that did the explanation earlier. He was doing things with chains, I would assume practising some technique for fighting. Abigail walked over with another one of our friends, and I walked with the two girls to the shade of a large building, looking in the windows, I saw the lights were off, chairs were on the tables, and there were books on large bookcases, I assume it was a library.
The three of us sat in the shade and talked. I had the strange boys chains, and I wrapped them around my finger and they shrunk and condensed into a ball of stringy metal. I removed my hand from the inside, and the other girl (not Abigail) was saying how she wanted to go to the beach. I told her that if she wanted to she could go and I would stay. This other girl was reluctant to leave.
Abigail was saying that she was disappointed our professor had denied a request of hers; I saw the image in her eye change, I don’t recall the symbol but I knew she wanted to have fun. She told us she was going to petition him, and was going to leave ahead of us. Before she walked away, I said “Abigail, wait I want to talk to you.” She refused, and the symbol in her eye changed back into the golden heart as she walked faster, almost crying. I got up and grabbed her by the hand and pulled her into my arms. There was a look of surprise on the other girl’s face. I held Abigail tightly, telling her if she wants to have fun, she has to let herself, and that she can’t always be about business. I loosened my hold, then rested my forehead on hers, and we kept talking. She had a large smile on her face and hugged me back. For a moment, her eye was normal hazel/golden, then it returned to the heart picture. I kept talking to her, comforting her and letting her know I would be there.
When we let each other out of our arms, I woke up.
It felt nice sleeping in for the first time in 3 days. After I woke up, I skipped breakfast and went straight to maple. I only did some of the Crusade quests, then I went afk to deliver Gilroy my guitars for while I’m in New York. At first I brought only the acoustic, and when I got there we talked, listened to music and watched videos for about 2 hours before going back to my place to get the electric and amp.
After we retrieved both guitars, we sat around and I taught him a small bit of Swing Life Away and Super Colossal. We put the guitars down and started playing CoD. We called Joefel over, and girloy tried persuading us to go to open gym with him. Being as lazy as I am, I refused every time. Joefel decided to go along, since it would Gilroy’s last timne in the gym before he starts running his own Karate Club. We continued playing CoD and throwing darts around the room, until it was about 7, and Gilroy cooked us all some pasta. Before he and Joefel left for the gym, I said my goodbyes and walked home.
When I got home, I just played maple. I did zakum runs, dojo runs and so on until about 3 in the morning. Nothing noteworthy.
I woke up early to get ready for my final day of Driver’s Ed. In class today, we took on traffic circles, and I got to do an independent drive to McKenzie town, which determined basically my pass or fail. I passed, but she advised that I parctice more parking before I got to take the road test. Someone kept calling me during my lesson though, which was a huge pain in the ass because the vibrations of my phone kept distracting me.
The phone call was Joefel, Gilroy and Cole trying to get me to come for Viet. I figured I would if they paid for me, and I convinced them to. I got free bubble tea and some of Gilroy’s food since he couldn’t eat it. We walked back to Gilroy’s, where we threw darts at each other, played CoD and talked. Before we left, his dad ordered pizza so we all decided to stay and feast. After devouring our meal, we went back downstairs and play fought.
Joefel, Cole and I left soon after, we had to run so Joefel could catch his bus back home. Cole and I kept walking, and parted ways at my street. You can guess what I did when I got home.
I logged in when I got home, and Val asked me to go Zak with her. I dide, and Archer, Mark and someone named Vincent came along with us. After we did our 2 runs, we went to the Lord Pirate PQ, and we finished quickly so we could go do a Dragon Rider before the maintenance. We finished the dragon rider faster than normal, since JR, Mark and myself are strong as hell. When we were done, I logged out to go play League of Legends with Archer.
Archer and I played two games. The fist we lost and the second we won. Compared to the others, my score was terrible. After these two games we both logged out and went to bed.
I’ve been on tumblr a lot less lately. I guess it’s because all I do is play mapletsory, watch dramas/animes, and eat.
I woke up early for my driver’s ed class even though it wasn’t until 11:30. I guess I just felt like doing something instead of sleeping an panicking when my instructor shows up at my door and I’m barely dressed. I of course sat around and played maple, setting up shop and talking with my guildies. When my instructor showed up, I went out the door and took to the streets.
The feel of my instructors car is a lot nicer than my van, bur that’s beside the point. Today, we drove out of the city to the AMA training course, and there I learned emergency manoeuvres. It was actually kind of fun, since have of the course was weaving in and out of stuff. After my lesson, we drove home along Highway 2, a pretty easy trip from there.
I logged back in and played maple some more. I made 6m from my store, not much but it was something. I went on a fail zakum run, since everyone but me disconnected or died. I survived the longest, as usual in those events. I decided I would catch up on Heartstrings, so I just told everyone “K afk.” and disappeared for a few minutes. When my drama wasn’t loading, I checked back, and I saw Derrick recruiting a girl into the guild. She asked a few questions that I answered while I was paying attention, and invited her in. I finished most of my episode, then went to future Henesys. I finished off some quests, then went back for a second attempt at Zakum’s throat with Mark, Derrick, and Ian. Mark and I have duoed before, but today wasn’t as successful. Mark dc’ed, Ian had to log out, and without upgrading my equipment and skill build I’m next to powerless against bosses. After this failure, I returned to Leafre, since I have to do my Horned Tail prequests.
That was my day, I have my final driver’s ed class tomorrow and I’m not excited.
I woke up early for driver’s ed, I was expecting my instructor at 9:30 but she arrived at 9 instead. I went to my lesson, today we were driving in downtown along one way roads, roundabouts and so on. It was pretty easy in my opinion. I had a random nosebleed that annoyed the hell out of me though, so we pulled over for a few minutes till it cleared itself up.
When I got home, I logged into maple and we did next to nothing as usual. JR and Stella got married, Val and I were Hene hoes in a house, and I kept going in Henesys on Steroids. I got an invite from Genina to go to lunch, but the rain started so we decided we’d go another time. Chris sent me a message later asking if I wanted to hang out with him, Nora nad Edward, so I said yes and went along.
The four of us played ppol at Edward’s, and had a good long talk about ghosts and other random subjects. We went to Chris’ house after, played Left 4 Dead, talked some more, ate, watched some crazy High school Of The Dead Episode, then some other weird things from Japan. We got some Viet later, then I headed home and logged in agian.
Jay logged in announcing he was gonna quit, and passed leadership of Dream on to me. I found us an alliance, and Val and I made a bet saying we’re gonna get kicked out in 2 days since we’re (Dream) is so loud at times. When things quieted down, I volunteered to bodyguard Shak, but since it was so late, I figured we’d take him on a zak run tomrrow with me and some others gain so it’s not too long. I went on a single, quick, zakum run with Mark, Archer, True (name unknown) and Nick. Took us about 20 minutes to finish. Zak didn’t drop any recipes today, but we’re running tomorrow.
That was my day, summed up very lazily. Night world.
I woke up around 10 because I had to help my parents with more furniture today. I had to move this old bookshelf out of my room because I’ll be taking my brother’s, my brother is getting a new one, and we were giving our old stuff to some new immigrants to Canada that are relatives of our friends. We did all the moving, drove to ikea to get the new stuff, then went to Joey’s Only to get some lunch.
When we got home and started moving the furniture in, my brother started rushing everything, and when I screamed at him to slow down and he didn’t my parents raged at him. I’m surprised how long it took them to realize he’s been doing that.
After that, I logged into maple. I helped out some members of Dream with the zakum prequests, then I went to the Temple of Time to continue the quests there. I was summoned back to LHC later for 2x, where I levelled up again. After 2x, I went on a zakum run with Val, Justin, Ameer and Ahmy. We finished it in 10 minutes, since most of us during this run were over 140, and Ameer is Level 200 (max level). I went back to ToT after this. I trained for a bit, then went to bed early because I had driver’s ed the next day again.
Oh, she wants one of those guys. The ones with the nice smile, and the fit body. The guy with the fitted caps and the newest shoes. She won’t even look my way. The guy that knows how to dance or serenade her to sleep. Sucks that I can’t be that guy. Not enough to please her. Not good enough. You drool over these guys and I feel like I can never fit those expectations. You’re someone I want so bad, but you want something better.
