I've been at my new base for over two weeks now and I can tell you that it feels great to be out of technical training.I don't have to abide by some of the ridiculous rules that I was forced to follow in tech training and no longer do I have to worry about some NCO walking around trying to find things wrong with you because he has nothing better to do.
No curfew ever and I can have as much alcohol as I want in my room. :P In fact, I had myself a beer not long before typing this.
I can finally be treated as an adult. :D
Work is well...laid back...and boring. Very boring. Where I work is also where a lot of intel people are. I have to wait to get my clearance passed before I can actually do my job. So right now, my job is...waiting. :lol:
It's easy work at least.
I've been behind on playing the DS games I have with me. I've been tired lately after the duty day. As an introvert, new places and people are very tiring for me.
Before Halloween, I should finish Apollo Justice and Investigation: Miles Edgeworth. The I'll move on to Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword and Ghost Trick.
Lately I've been exposed to the world that is figurines. In the past years I bought the Zelda statues from First4Figures simply as a collector of just about anything Zelda and had a couple Zelda action figures as a kid, but collecting other figurines such as Figma and Nendoroid wasn't my thing. I wasn't even familiar with the big name companies in the industry such as Max Factory, Good Smile Company, and Kaiyodo. I preordered the Link and Samus figures from Figma when a re-run was announced. Can't wait to get them. Should be here in time for Christmas.
However, now I'm getting addicted to it. I imported a couple figurines for my husband as gifts and seeing how cool they looked, I'm buying some for myself.
Already purchased a couple Hatsune Miku figurines. [I've been a fan of hers for a couple years now.] One of the Miku figures I purchased was one I read about that was only given at conventions and was open to online orders for two weeks and I preorderd it! And I preordered the Hatsune Miku Figma due to come out later this year.
At least it'll add something to my room. Something to look at other than random animal plushies and the spines of cases of countless games. :lol:
I can't wait to move into a house with my husband and finally have the space to put those F4F Zelda statues on display.
For anyone who hasn't bought figurines, look up Max Factory's Figma line. They're very detailed, but can be put into may poses so you don't have to look at the same pose everyday and it comes with many accessories. And they're a hell of a lot cheaper than buying those PVC figures that can easily go past the $100 mark. Some may see them as small, but if you like in a small place or don't have a lot of shelf space, it's the perfect size. And the prices is reasonable too considering how detailed they are. Every other action figure looks like crap once you get your hands on a Figma. A perfect balance of being a collectable item but still being able to play with it.
Also look up Bandai's D-Arts series which also consist of articulated figures. Recent figures in the line include Pocket Monsters and Rockman.
