So, closing was this morning. I wasn't too thrilled about that. Well, about the morning part, that is. The closing part was good. Hehe. So, I'm a homeowner again, and now I technically have two homes, at least for a little bit. Unfortunately, the movers aren't coming until the 24th. The internet connection is being moved on the 23rd, of course, so I may end up having to skip a day of Fallout 4 after all. Kinda sucky, but I'm not exactly getting a lot of views, so I suppose it's not a major deal. I would rather that the furniture was moved first, but you can't have everything, I guess. I still have a bunch of stuff to pack, and still have to paint. I did get the paint today, I just have to do it now. Ugh. Not my favorite part of the deal. I don't know if I'll start tomorrow or not. I shouldn't wait too long, though. Also, I have a new fridge coming on Sunday. That's pretty nice, though the ones I really wanted were too big for the space that's there. I wanted one with ice and water through the door, but they're all too wide and too tall. I had to settle for a smaller one with a regular ice maker. Blah. I guess I'll survive. We told them that we needed the water line installed twice, but I'm not sure that they got what was being said. I suppose that will be found out on Sunday.
Anyways, I spent a good deal of the day with house stuff. I was home, at the apartment, for a few hours, and then took a few things over there, though a few was all my back could handle. I didn't really do anything this evening. Just kinda relaxed a bit. I also got a Fallout 4 video out, of course, but it was a little bit later than I wanted. I need to work on that. What I'd really like to do is to record a few videos at a time, but right now, with all the move stuff going on, it's really hard to do that. I ran afoul of a large pack of Feral Ghouls today, and that hurt pretty bad. I didn't die, but I came close a couple times. I wonder how many playthroughs it's going to take me to get all the achievements. I do plan on getting them all, like I did with Fallout: New Vegas. I have all the trophies for Fallout 3 on PSN, well, for the base game. I don't have any of the DLC trophies on there, but I don't have any of the DLC on the PS3, either, so that makes it kinda hard. I do have them on the PC, of course, but for some reason, there's no Steam Achievements in Fallout 3. I don't really know why.
So, I talked about something similar the other day, but I've had another package problem. Supposedly, my package was delivered in my mailbox today. Of course, when I checked my mail today, there was no fucking package in there. I don't know where it is. I don't even know if it was actually delivered. I assume that if it was, it was put in some other mailbox. And if someone tried to bring it to me, I wasn't home until later in the evening, and they didn't try then. I'm hoping that it will turn up tomorrow, but I have no idea if it will or not. I could just be out $50, which fucking sucks. Thanks USPS, for being shitty once again. I wouldn't think that this could be so hard. I mean, really, all the mailboxes around here are labeled with both the number and the name. How can you fuck that up? I'd almost rather that what happened before happened this time, where it randomly went to another town first, even though it had no reason to go there. So, I just have to kinda hope that wherever my package is, that person will be nice enough to bring it to me. Of course, they could also put it back in the mail, and I wouldn't get it until Monday at the earliest. That would be annoying. <sigh>
Besides that, the past few days have mostly been packing and moving stuff around. More of that to come, of course. I hope I can get everything that I want to get done done in the time I've given myself to do it. I gave my 30 day notice the other day, so I'm on the clock anyways, but I want to be done before that, even. That way, I don't have to worry about anything. I suppose we shall see what happens. I think that once this month is over, I will be less stressed. I hope.
So, tomorrow is more work, I suppose. I think, at least. Maybe I'll take the day off, who knows. I doubt I will do that, though. I'm sure that I'll end up doing something at least, and I'll probably be at the house at least once.
Anyways, I think that's all I have for now. Heh.
It's not been a great day for me. Now mind you, because I have a schedule that's different from most, my days tend to be from noon to noon, not midnight to midnight. Everything I do from midnight until I go to bed around four, I consider to be the same day as the stuff before midnight. Granted, the name of the day changes in there, but it's one segment today. This is an important distinction, because last night, things were fine. Fallout 4 unlocked at midnight, and I proceeded to do two videos. How people had Fallout 4 videos out already, I'm not so sure. Especially when I know that the date that they uploaded the video was the 9th and I know some of them are people that hadn't gotten to midnight in their region yet, so the game wasn't technically out yet. I started as soon as Fallout 4 cleared Steam, and I was already at least a couple videos behind. I don't know how that works.
Anyways, last night was good. Mostly. I didn't have my meds last night, because even though I called it in the day before, Walmart's wonderful pharmacy didn't bother to fill my order until it was too late for me to want to go back out, especially when I was right freaking there about an hour before that. I was so pissed. So I had to suffer with that. Then, I had a really bad dream before I woke up early today. Between the two, my day was thrown way the fuck off. I haven't recovered from that all day. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to today, because I've just been so worn out today. I'm really hoping that tomorrow is better. And I REALLY hope I don't have another bad dream tonight. They seem to be coming more frequently lately, and they're getting worse and worse.
So, I'm not sure what to do with myself right now. I should work on some more packing, especially with closing going on Friday. I need to call movers, but I don't want to schedule them too soon, though I would imagine that I would be at least a week out anyways. I have to call utilities, but I don't know how many of them I'll be able to call tomorrow, with it being a holiday. Maybe I'll just wait until Thursday for that. Maybe I'll go get some comfort food, and see if I can get some sort of second wind going, so I can at least get more stuff packed. It seems like it never ends, though. I'll do what I can tonight. Probably do another video, maybe two, depending on how I'm feeling. Besides that, I'm kinda hoping that I can relax at least a little bit. Not sure if that's going to happen, though. I suppose we shall see.
Oh, and on top of that, UPS decided they didn't want to be bothered to come to my apartment, apparently, so they delivered my Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition to the office. Of course, that was half an hour after I had already been there, and I didn't find out until an hour after they closed for the day. I swear, between UPS and the USPS, it's amazing I actually get anything delivered. UPS won't bother coming to the door, and USPS takes as long as fucking possible to get your stuff to you. Unless it's a bill, of course, those always come on time. Priority Mail? It may be a priority to you, but not to us, that's the USPS way.
Anyways, that's all I have for now.
That's how I feel right now. I can't get the temp right in here. Of course, it doesn't help that for some reason we're back up to the mid-70's around here. The cooldown went by much too fast. Maybe I should open the window a little bit. Of course, then I'll probably get cold again. Blah.
In better news, I finally got final approval from underwriting! I am going to be a house owner again! It's been a long time, and this will be the first time by myself. Of course, closing isn't for a week and a half, which is kind of a pain. Nothing I can do about, though. It's what the sellers want. Never mind what I want, of course. Anyways, next Friday, I should be a homeowner. That's some good news. Now to pack, and all that good stuff. Then do a little painting, and get stuff moved, and get my internet moved, and I'll probably have to have a jack installed, which is annoying. And don't forget hanging stuff on the walls again. I mean, I was so good at that last time, I haven't even had stuff on the walls for a year yet, and I've been here three and a half years. Details, I suppose.
And it's only one week until Fallout 4 comes out now! It's getting so close! I'm not entirely sure how I'm going to record and post and move at the same time, but I have a vague idea. Anyways, I'm looking forward to this. More Fallout is not a bad thing. I wonder how big it is. Or, I guess I should say, how long it is. It'll be fun to find out. I hope it's not too short, that would kinda suck. Of course, in time there will also be DLC to go through. As long as none of it is like Dead Money, I will be a happy man. Fallout 4...coming not soon enough. Next week will be a good week.
Besides all that, it's been fairly uneventful around here. I do need to get my truck over to the tire place and finally get my tire fixed and put back on. It's only been since May. I will probably do that either Friday this week, or Monday next week. That's my goal, though I hate sitting in that waiting room. I could really use the room in the back of the truck, though, at least once closing hits. So, I'd best get that done. Plus, I've been running on my spare for quite some time. At least it's not one of those crappy donut spares that you get with most cars, it's a real spare tire. Kinda nice, but it doesn't match the rest of them. Heh. But past that, there's really not much that has gone on in the past few days. I've been spending some time with the WWE Network, as usual, and not enough time gaming. I do want to get more into gaming again. Maybe once the move has happened, and things are settled in, I can spend some time with some games. I mean, I suppose I could now, too, but it's been hard to get in the mood. Depression and all of that, you know.
Really, there's nothing exciting going on right now. I did go to the grocery today, if that's exciting. I don't plan on doing a whole lot for the next few days, except pack some stuff up. My mom brought over some boxes and the like for me today, so I can get those filled up probably pretty easy. And I have lots of stuff in my closet that can be moved right now. Well, both closets, really. I have stuff that I haven't unpacked since I moved in here. I should really work on that. I suppose part of me just kinda stuck boxes up on the shelves and forgot about them, in the hopes that I would move again before too long. Well, it's been a bit longer than I would guess I was thinking. Not that it's horrible around here. It's not, for the most part. There are a few things I would change, and maybe a neighbor I would change, but it's not been a bad time, really.
Anyways, there's not a whole lot else to talk about right now. Just gotta do some hurry up and wait. FO4 is close, closing is close, moving is close, things are close, just not close enough. Hehe.
The past 14 hours have not been kind to me. You see, 14 hours ago, I went to bed, at 4am. Normal time for me. Nothing out of the ordinary. Takes me a little bit to get comfortable and fall asleep. That happens sometimes. Then, I had a really good dream. I mean really good. I thought things had changed, and I could be a little more happy again. Too bad for me that I woke up to find I was still all alone in my apartment. Except for Danzig, of course. That kinda crushed me a little bit. I don't know if it even should have, but it did. On top of that, I had horrible acid indigestion, my esophagus was on fire with all the acid. So I had to take some more ranitidine. Mind you, I had taken two before bed, just like I do every night. For a while after that, I alternated between having bizarre, not terribly nice dreams and waking up to more acid, and going to take more ranitidine. Finally, after far too many pills, the acid subsided. I had another bizarre dream and was woken up by a severe cramp in one of my calves. It hurt really bad. I tried to swing around and put my feet on the floor, to alleviate the cramp, but I couldn't put my foot all the way down. I actually had to press down on my leg to get my foot flat on the floor. That's how bad this cramp was. After a few minutes, it mostly went away. Finally, I was able to sleep for a little bit more, before I woke up again, and just decided to stay up. It was close to my normal waking time anyways. Oh yes, to go along with the cramp, I also managed to get something in my eye that I couldn't get out of there. That sucked, too.
Of course, I've been walking around with a limp today, because of that cramp. I've also spent time on introspection and questions, because of that first dream, and all I end up with is sadness and my still very broken heart. I'm in a funk, my leg hurts, my head hurts, my heart hurts. Everything hurts. And I still have most of the day to go. It's going to be a long day, and I'm not going to like it. Maybe I should play a game for a while. Or maybe watch videos for a while. Or something. I can't really talk to anyone about this, except maybe Danzig. He's not a great conversationalist, though. Plus, he's out in his kitty tree in the living room.
So anyways, to sum it up. Last night sucked, today sucks, and I'm still a lonely broken shell of a man.
And I'm still stuck in underwriting hell.
I hate life.
No, not in reality. That's the song I'm listening to. I have to admit, I really wish Peter Steele hadn't died. That means I will never get the Type O Negative cover of Cruel Summer that has been in my head for years. Very sad.
Anyways, today is a better day than yesterday was. I'm not sure that I'm 100% again, but close to it. Not much exciting has gone on today. A little bit more stuff on the house, nothing spectacular, but we're making progress. I should get final word on Monday, and hopefully close on the house soon after. That would be nice. Then I can go and get my paint and supplies and start painting the bedrooms. Then move stuff. And I mustn't forget to call the utilities! So many things to do.
Not much on the ol' chopping block today. I spent some time, as you might have guessed, listening to some music. I'm thinking about playing a game(shocking), but I'm not sure what(also shocking). I'm also tempted to shunt all of my music into one huge playlist and hit random. I can't imagine the craziness that would come out of that.
Less than two weeks remain until Fallout 4 comes out. It's getting so close! I guess I won't be doing too much work on the house on the 10th. Not that there's work to be done, just the painting, really. On the 10th, it gets real, though. FO4 out and I'm sure that I'll record a few videos on that day. I mean, I want to get a jump on it, of course. I'm already considering what my build will be. Of course, there's still a lot that's unknown about the game right now, but I have an idea, at least. I'm looking forward to it. The only thing that could be a problem is the time that I'm offline, when things are moved and I haven't had the internet hooked up to the house yet. I'm going to try to get those events as close together as I can, though. I make no promises, though. On the bright side, even without access, I can still record, and I can always post videos from my mom's house. Not the ideal setup, but it will work in the interim.
Really, there's not a whole lot else to talk about right now. I'm just kinda waiting for Monday, to get my final answer, and then for somewhere around the end of the week next week to close. And then I'll be waiting for FO4. Then I'll be waiting for my stuff to get moved. And then I'll be waiting for Cable to get released. While at the same time doing all the other stuff that I need to get done. It'll be an interesting November, that's for sure.
Well, still not through this whole mortgage thing yet. I had to send in something else today. I hope that's it, finally. Never can tell, though. I'm hoping.
On top of that, I got something in the mail from Social Security. They are ready to review my disability case. I was hoping that I had longer before they did that, but I suppose it had to come around at some point. Of course, what they sent me was a bunch of paperwork to do. As if I wasn't already sick of doing paperwork. So, I spent some time today filling that all out. Hopefully, this will be an easy process. I have a feeling that it might not be, though. I suppose we shall see in time. I really don't know what I'll do if disability gets cut off. That would suck big time. Oh well, I suppose there's not really a reason to worry about that until we get to that point.
Besides that, there hasn't been a whole lot going on. Still thinking about doing another short playthrough before Fallout 4 gets here. Of course, if I do, I will have to start it pretty damn soon, like in the next day or so. Well, for what I'm thinking that I want to do, I need to. Maybe I'll work on that tonight, but we shall see. Besides that, in gaming, there hasn't been much. Played Civ V with Auren for a little while, but only for a couple hours, and we haven't played in days. No 7DtD, though I will say that Alpha 13 looks pretty interesting. I suppose we're still a ways away from that coming out, but I suppose doesn't matter too much, since we haven't really played Alpha 12 much. Sometimes I think about working on a solo game, but I have no idea how good an idea that might be. I'm not like super great at the game, and I've very rarely played alone. I suppose it might be interesting, though.
In the rest of the world, nothing interesting has gone on. Nothing that bears repeating, at least. Really, I'm just kinda waiting around on the house thing, and haven't done a whole lot else.
I thought maybe I had more interesting things to say today, but it turned out that not that much interesting has gone on. I have picked up a few more games for really cheap, if that's interesting. Oh, HowLongToBeat.com says that for 1090 of my ~1180 games would take about two years to complete. Of course, that would be playing for 24 hours a day non-stop. If I treated it like a full time job, you know, eight hours a day, it would be around six years. That's an awfully long time, not to mention there were a lot of games that didn't have a time to complete in the system, so who knows how much longer it would take for the rest of those games. And I keep buying more on occasion. Right now, I'm all about really cheap stuff right now, though. Of course, that doesn't necessarily make them good, but then, neither does paying more for them. Hehe.
Anyways, I think that's all the interesting stuff that I have for now. I'll let you know if I come up with anything else.
