I have reclaimed my desk posted 9/4/2014 1:53:11 PM
Matt's been borrowing it for about a month to play Guild Wars 2, but he's finally hating my desk chair enough to stop using the desk altogether. Which is awesome because he left empty beer bottles and other stuff everywhere D=
Newly cleaned desk:
Last weekend I went to Sheffield Film and Comic Con. It was fantastic, and I was able to meet and get an autograph from Paul McGann (Eighth Doctor). They had some classic Who actors there as well, and the panel they all did was very fun. Matt and one of my friends obtained tribbles and they are so cute. I picked up a mug that for some reason has a 12 month guarantee? Hmm.
I'm counting down the days until the London MCM Expo, then after that there's the Dragon Age:Inquisition release, and then it's Christmas.
Not much of this year left now, come to think of it.
Turns out I'm really bad at making myself take pictures of things that make me happy when everything is a bit rubbish and stressful.
Matt's bought an engagement ring. It's currently in the top drawer next to his side of the bed. I'm supposed to pretend to everyone we both know that I don't know it's there.
I have a new job that I really hate. For various reasons I have to stick it out until the new year. I'm trying really hard to be positive about it, but it's getting so draining.
Moving in with Matt is the best decision I've made all year. Everything is relaxed and awesome. He doesn't lose patience with me when I get depressed or forget to do things. On Sundays we sleep in 'til noon, eat a fry up for brunch and marathon things on Netflix. For the last two weeks getting in from work means he hops on Guild Wars 2 while I play lots of Final Fantasy X and there's so much harmony between us. I'm really happy with him, he's everything I've ever needed in another human being.
Speaking of Final Fantasy X, the HD edition is fantastic but I'm a bit disappointed the X-2 is pretty much just a port. Oh well. The weird thing is I'm clearing through it so much faster than I did ten years ago. Sometimes I go through three bosses in one evening like it's nothing, whereas when I first played it all those years ago some bosses could take me months.
In other news the new series of Doctor Who starts this weekend, there's a small comic con near me next weekend and after that I have two months to make costumes for London Comic Con.
Oh, and I tried reading The Fault In Our Stars. I got really annoyed with the main character and didn't bother finishing it. There's lots of people going on about how sad it is, and I'm sure the ending with be dramatically depressing. I'd feel bad, but the main character is ridiculously mean about anyone who isn't dying/feeling bad.
Everyone else is doing them, so I might as well join in.
Moving to my current house was a totally awesome choice. I love the house itself and the area itself is so much better, plus I can now walk to work so I'm saving around £50 a month on bus passes. It's also great living with my boyfriend because we can be cuddly and stuff. The only downside is we've gone slightly anti-social due to so many Netflix marathons. Oh well.
Things at work are a bit all over the place. They're going to be moving my department to another call centre in a few months, and the departments that are left will mostly be Sales based roles. I'm not a Sales type, so this is making me intensely uncomfortable. I'm debating sticking it out until my time off for October comic-con and then looking elsewhere. I'm still trying to decide what it is I actually want to do in life. I've been told to often that my creative pursuits are pointless *sighs*
The relationship is awesome. We're going to Comic-con this year as a Black and White Mage duo. He's apparently planning to propose then too, though we've already discussed that we don't want to get married until 2016 so...
Oh, and my computer is near the point of being on it's last legs. It can handle Chrome, Spotify and Skype and little else. It's crashing all of my games and my graphics program. I've started planning my own build, which is awesome but my bank account is screaming in fear because so expensive.
I started trying to lose weight last month. It would be going better if I was any good with exercise, but as I discovered this morning I can't even do a damn sit up. I wish there was a Zumba game for the Xbox One already so that I could put the Kinect to good use.
