So, it's been a little while since I updated, again. I turned 39 on Monday, I'm getting old.
And this bears repeating from last time: It's fucking hot in here. It's like in the 50's outside, it shouldn't be like 80 in here. I hate this heat thing so much. And the really odd thing is that it doesn't get really hot until after the sun goes down. It makes no sense. You would think that with the sun beating down it would be more hot then, but nope. Not that the sun was out today, it was overcast and/or raining today. It shouldn't have ever gotten that hot in here. But it really is. I'm sitting here sweating. With the window open and the fan on. It's just not right.
Anyways, after I made my offer on the house, it was accepted! Now I'm working through getting the mortgage secured and all the other fun stuff that comes with buying a house, like signing all your money away. Fun times. I haven't heard anything in a couple days, I assume that's a good thing. I mean, that must mean things are going fine on the back end of everything, or I would have heard there was a problem. So, I'm actually buying a house! This will be interesting.
Besides FNV, I still really haven't been playing any games. And I'm still not entirely sure why. I mean, I do have some idea. Depression. Saving certain games for possible LP's. Things like that. I just sometimes wish I could just sit down and play a game. I'm going to try to do that. I suppose that for some of the games, I should at least try them out, before I decide to make an LP or something like that out of them. I mean, if I think the game sucks, or something like that, I wouldn't want to start something, just to have to slog through it even though I don't like it. Besides, I'll need to test them out in the recording software, anyways. Maybe I'll work on that. Of course, I had a couple other projects that I wanted to start already that I haven't yet. Probably because recording is a massive pain, between the sweltering heat and Danzig chewing on me, it can be hard to get some work in.
I'm hoping that at least some of this will be rectified with the house. At least the sweltering part. I'm sure the cat won't stop attacking my hand just because we moved. At least I know that in the house, I can still shut him out of the room if need be. I suppose we shall see.
Not a whole lot else to comment on right now. It's been pretty uneventful lately, I mean, besides all the paperwork. Heh. Not that this is a bad thing. November will be interesting, though. I should have FNV wrapped up by then. And, of course, on the 10th, we'll have Fallout 4 starting up. I'm not sure if I'm going to play two games at the same time or not, though. You know, one for the channel and one for my own personal edification. I might, I'm just not sure I want to get caught up in the whole 'What have I done in this save file or that save file.' Not that it matters too much, I'm sure I'll play through it many times. Unless it sucks for some reason, but I don't think it's going to. That's not to say that there won't be any immediate patches or anything like that, but I think it's going to be a good game.
Well, I think that's all I have for now.
Yes, I missed a day again. It's not even surprising anymore. I recorded a single FNV episode yesterday, and then did the same thing today. I just didn't have the mojo to keep going with it so hot in here. I'm really getting sick of this.
So, I got a bit of good news for a change. It turns out that I have be pre-approved for a mortgage. Looks like I may be getting that house after all. It's gonna be tight, money wise, but I think I can do it. I suppose if not, we'll find out real quick. Of course, once Cable gets out of prison and gets a job, that will help. Getting to that point will be interesting, though. I have a showing of the house on Sunday to go to, and after that, assuming I don't change my mind for some weird reason, I should be all set to make an offer. I hope this goes well.
I hate to harp on this, but it bears repeating...it's really fucking hot in here.
Other than that, there hasn't been much going on. I mean, I did a bit of work to get my pre-approval going, but it wasn't too bad. Besides that, really, I'm just kinda waiting around. For a few things. But one thing at a time, as they say.
Really, there isn't all that much to talk about right now. Unless you wanted to know that I haven't gone to the store yet, and at this point, I'll probably just wait until Monday.
Anyways, that's all I have for now.
I sometimes don't even know anymore. I just move along day to day and do very little. I should change that. I want to play more games. I want to record more games. Which reminds me, I was going to record FNV tonight, but I forgot, so I guess I'll be doing that tomorrow. Not a horrible thing, I suppose. Anyways, I don't do as much as I should. I want to do more. I really do.
Of course, there's something else that I want, too. Something that I don't think I can find a way to get. I'll keep it vague for now, because I have a small plan, but I have a feeling that it won't work. And not only do I feel it will not work, I almost have a feeling that it will devolve into a horrible mess, and I'll just be worse off for it. I guess maybe it's nothing less than I deserve. Someone certainly already thinks so. That plan can't come to fruition until at least a week from Monday, though. In case you didn't know, that also happens to be my birthday. I will either have a good birthday, or a really shitty one. We will see when we get there, though. I'd kinda like to bitch and complain about it now, because I have an idea of what's going to happen, but I don't know for sure until we get there. Maybe I'll be surprised. More likely, I'll be horribly depressed and very mad. I guess we'll see.
Not much has gone on today, just kinda hung around, really. I think I may go to the grocery tomorrow, since it's Thursday, after all. I don't have much I want. I should actually probably think of a couple other things for the list, but it seems no matter how short my list is, it always costs more than I expect it to. Of course, if I wake up too late, I may just wait on the whole grocery thing.
It's too hot in here tonight. I don't actually have the fan on tonight, though. I suppose that might help a little bit, but not a whole lot. I'm really sick of this weather. I want it to cool down. I mean, it's mid-September, after all. It should be cooling down. I hate this.
I can't think of much else to add right now. I'm tired of the heat, I'm tired of a lot of things, I suppose.
I forgot to post yesterday. Not that there was much to talk about. There still isn't really. I did some more recording tonight, but that's about it for gaming. I also watched the football game. Well, kinda. I was watching it over the air, so the signal wasn't too great. Hopefully it will be a little better on Sunday when the Colts play. I suppose we shall see.
The only other thing that's really semi-interesting is I've been thinking about the girlfriend situation. Or more specifically, the lack of one. It's been about two and a half years now. It's not been a great time. 'But UsYr, you're afraid of people', you say. This is true. And doesn't make trying to find someone easier, that's for sure. I don't know what I'm supposed to do about that. That's part of what I've been trying to figure out. I don't know of a good way to do it. 'Look online', you say. I don't even know how well that would look, because probably before long, they would want to meet in person. I don't think I'd do too well at that. Dating means you have to go out in public and shit like that. Things I'm not good at. I mean, I can barely go to the grocery for half an hour and keep it together. I suppose I shouldn't even worry about it. It's not like I'm gonna find someone that likes me anyways. I'm too old and fat and unatractive for that to happen. Not to mention my interests. I'm not interested in a whole lot. I don't watch many movies. Pretty much only watch WWE and NFL anymore. I like video games and TCG's. I have a lot of books, but I don't read all that much. Even with the Kindle. I'm not easy to get to know. I have a bike I don't ride. Of course, it doesn't help that I have to get the tires on it fixed. I like camping, but only for a couple days at a time, because I don't want to be away from Danzig very long. I'm just kinda weird, and there's that whole mentally broken thing. I just don't see things working out for me.
I suppose it would be best to not really even think about something like that until my living situation is settled down, and I hopefully have money again. One step at a time, you know? That's probably the best way to look at it. I'm still really worried about the house situation, but mom still says it will work out. I suppose I should try to stay positive, but that's kinda hard sometimes, especially for me.
Anyways, I suppose that's all I have to talk about right now. Maybe I'll come up with more for tomorrow.
So, I've been missing for a few days again. No particular reason that I can think of. You really haven't missed a whole lot. Just a couple of New Vegas recording sessions, really. I'm starting to run low on ancillary things to do, so after the Underground we may continue on with the main game again for a bit. Nothing wrong with that, I think. We've done a lot of stuff, and we're in our 40's, so not a whole lot of leveling left, even. I'll probably record again tomorrow. I don't have a whole lot of videos in backup right now. I suppose that's not much of a problem. As long as I have one to put up every day, I'm all good.
The only other interesting thing that I've done lately was go to the BMV to get my driver's license renewed. Fun stuff that. I even mostly stayed up last night, so that I could go early in the morning before they get too busy. My strategy worked well, though. I think I was only there for about 10-15 minutes. Nice and easy. My new picture is not great, but I suppose it could be worse. Now I just have to wait for it to come in the mail. Fun stuff. Just as long as it gets here before my birthday, we'll be all good. Of course, if I have my way, I'll have to change the address on it in a few months. Of course, if I had my way, a few other things would be different, too, but that's neither here nor there. They are things that I can maybe work on, though. We'll see.
I still need to spend more time gaming. I've been so bad at it lately. On the bright side, the depression is lightening up some. I assume that it's because I've had my meds upped. Maybe that means that my gaming mojo will come back before long. I could really use that.
Not a whole lot else to really report on right now. I suppose that's not a surprise, but my days are pretty uneventful, as you know. I'm going to spend the rest of the night watching videos, and I'm not sure what I'll be doing tomorrow yet. I'm still tempted to start a new Fallout 3 game. I may do that, who knows. I probably won't get around to doing FO3 on my channel until after FO4 anyways. I may do something else first, and I kinda want to set up a schedule of what I post when. I suppose I could do that now, but I'm kinda on a roll with just FNV. We will see what happens when New Vegas ends. I suppose some of it depends on how long there is between the end of my FNV run and when FO4 comes out. There will be plenty more videos on my channel, though, don't worry about that.
So, there hasn't been too much going on today. My mom came over for a while and that was the biggest event going on today. Not much else has happened. I did play a bit of Fallout Shelter today, and had a whole lot of bad luck. I had three radroach infestations and two raider attacks today. The radroaches were the real problem. They killed off a bunch of people the first time, I got all but one of then resurrected, and then the second attack happened, and they killed off even more people that time. Luckily, the third time they didn't kill anyone, but it took me much of the night to get people resurrected again. The raider attacks were pretty cake because I have a couple well armed guards in the front room. In both of the raider attacks, they never made it out of that room. I couldn't believe my horrible luck today. I hope it takes it easier on me for the next few days, I'm still working on getting things in shape, though I think I'm pretty close to being back in the good graces of the vault dwellers.
Besides that, not much has gone on today. A shock, I know. I guess that means there's not a whole lot else to say for the night. Just my Fallout Shelter trauma. Heh.
