[Seriously? DeviantArt Journals don't want "&" symbol in their titles? What is this shit??]
So, with the comeback info and plans for dA in my previous Journal I can finally write a life update. But where do I begin? A lot has happened during the last ~1½ years.
Ok, job first: I still continue my work in the library because that's a place I like the best of all the past jobs I previously had. I'm surrounded by my hobbies; art, books, comics, music and movies. It's easier for me to get to borrow and return at anytime and the staff are really nice.
My other work is a pet shop where I feed the animals; my favorite part is to feed the baby turtles and bathe them. It's a dream job when it's about caring for my favorite animals (the turtles).
Sometimes the days have been stressful, especially during the time I had depression.
Ah yes. I've been in a period of depression lately. I don't remember exactly when it began, but it became worse on Autumn 2014 so I had to look for help. I'm feeling better now when I had holidays off from work (I still miss the turtles though). I don't know if depression will return, but I'll try to be more positive about things and about myself. I'll think of all the nice support I got from friends and other people. Hopefully I'll be alright this year.
There's also a chance I'll move out of my childhood home and get my own apartment. It could be my next big step in life, if only I can and want to take it. I only hope there will be an available apartment where I can feel like home and safe. Wish me luck! ^_^
Now, what else? I can't think of anything so I'll close it with video games: I don't even know what's new and what I've already mentioned before. "Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen?" Have I mentioned that? Well, it's a game I'm replaying in New Game++ (second run on New Game+) and I enjoy that game. I also got to borrow "Tomb Raider" (the 2013 reboot) from a friend to try. I've heard and seen a lot (screenshots/ani gifs) of the Tomb Raider games but I've never played any of them myself - until I played that game, which I surprisingly enjoyed much!
More games... "Far Cry 3" and "Far Cry 4" are among my favorite Ubisoft titles (the latter was released in November). OH, AND "ASSASSIN'S CREED: LIBERATION"! I've played through the entire game at least 4 times. So now I have AC II, AC Brotherhood and AC Liberation as my most favorite Assassin's Creed titles.
I instantly became an Aveline and Gérald shipper.
Gérald deserves so much love and appreciation. (When sadly it seems he is ignored, forgotten, overlooked or hated by a majority of the fandom. Poor sweetie.
) Just... don't even talk to me about Connorline, please. Just no. I've seen enough of it that it makes me feel sad with a heavy heart.
Now about the recently released titles, AC Rogue and AC Unity. AC Rogue was surprisingly short and personally I don't like Shay (because of reasons; especially one Memory sequence that really upsets me), so I kinda have mixed emotions about it. It could have been compensated if Ubisoft/writers would have added the historical event of The Great Expulsion, as it would be a perfect fit and a suitable match for a particular backstory, but they lost their chance.
Ah well, what's done is done.
AC Unity... ah, I'm just gonna say that I like the parkour-down feature and I love the graphics and the characters Arno and Élise and their relationship. But else I was quite disappointed, and I have NEVER PROGRESSED THE STORY PAST SEQUENCE 9. So let's not talk about Unity ever (except how wonderful Arno & Élise were together).
I also want to mention that I have played all three Bioshock games. "Bioshock Infinite" is my most favorite, where the Lutece twins are my favorite characters. Suddenly (thanks to Tumblr) I became a bigger fan of them than I intended. I don't ship them though. I only see them as twins, no more. (I know of their truth but still I see them as such.) So no Lutecest for me. xD
I'm gonna hoard a LOT of Bioshock Infinite/Lutece and AC Liberation fanart in my Favorites folders. (I already started with AC Liberation, in case you haven't noticed.)
So yeah, that's my two recent fandoms.
I'm actually VERY interested to see more of the upcoming title, "Assassin's Creed: Victory". Because VICTORIAN LONDON!
I think that's enough for now. There's time for more things in new Journal entries.
- No tag back!
- Tell 5 things about you!
- Answer ten questions from tagger
and then make new ten questions.
Tag 10 of your friends, after that tell them that they were tagged with link to your "GOTTA TAG'EM ALL" journal.
Do not use "I tag everyone that read this." or kind of that on tagging your friends. I'm gonna break some rules and say that I won't tag anyone. I just want to answer them.
5 THINGS ABOUT ME
1) I'm easily distracted
2) I'm an enthusiastic video gamer
3) If I find something or a character that I have much interest in, I can get easily passionate about it
4) My three most favorite ships are EgonxJanine (Ghostbusters), AvelinexGérald (AC Liberation) and ÉlisexArno (AC Unity)
5) My unofficial Tumblr rank is Chief Commander of the Gérald Defense Squad (given by a friend of mine)
QUESTIONS FOR ME
Do you mind, I have tagged you?
Do you learn another language? And if so, which one?
Not for the time being, but I aim to learn more German.
Do you have a pet?
No, but I plan to have one or two.
What are your favorites bands?
I have too many to list them all. But I'm a big fan of Unheilig, Coldplay and Nightwish.
What are your favorite movies/shows?
Again, too many to list. Recent favorite movies are "Maleficent" and "The Wind Rises". Random favorite show is "Black Books".
What comic/manga do you read at the moment?
In manga, it's Saint Young Men! But I read the scanslated volumes online, because they won't be officially translated and published in English. ;_;
In comic, I'm trying to catch up with the "Trinity of Sin" series published by DC Comics.
What's your favorite season and why?
Spring because days gets a little brighter and it's usually mild* weather with melting snow. (*not always applicable to Finland, apparently) Plus 1st of May celebration is also a holiday I like. ^^
What's your favorite fandom?
*laughing* I've been in so many fandoms that I haven't really compared them as "better than the other one". All fandoms have their good and bad parts... so I don't have any particular favorite. I'm content with most of my fandoms.
What's your biggest fear?
Being all alone in the dark on an empty field with thunder rumbling right above me. I can think of many other fear scenarios, but this is what first came to my mind... though it's more like a nightmare than a real life scenario. Then it's being abandoned, forgotten and abused both physically and psychically.
Last question finally - are you happy of this?
Of what, exactly? The list of questions? They're alright.
That's all for now.
Until next time, take care!
