All About mikey1611
Once again it's been a long time since I've updated my blog. Man, it's hard to get back into a habit of blogging. Maybe it's because of the process I go through before I submit an entry or I'm just way too busy. I don't know about you guys but my process is pretty long. First I gotta pick one of my blog ideas from a list, gather some information (which is the tedious part), first draft, spellcheck then submit!
Anyways, let's start with something that has taken my interest for the past two months since gaming hasn't been adequate due to the annual summer gaming drought. Winter Holidays, bring it on! Goodbye, World.
This particular "something" is comic books! I was so excited when I heard about the reboot to the DC Universe that I contemplated about getting every #1 single issue. I haven't read any of the recent DC comics. The most recent one I've read was Sinestro Corps War and the last one of Batman's was No Man's Land (which I'm currently reading again) and that was a long, long time ago and it was an exhaustive read for me at the time. So, this is sorta perfect time to get back in!
There has been many concerns about the New 52 and DC's New Universe (DCnU). This isn't a complete reboot of all characters. This is not where all the history and continuity of the characters are erased and starting from scratch like the alternative Ultimate Universe of Marvel but almost similar. This reboot is for DC to get with the times. To do that, their first step was introducing redesigns of costumes, which look freakin' awesome! Tights are out and armor plates are in. Check out Superman's, especially Jim Lee's variant in Action Comics and in Justice League #1.
So far, all the comics I got are pretty awesome but there are way too many to follow. Justice League is a must. Batmans'? I know I have to follow Scott Snyder's Batman. Green Lantern is one of the continued lines, not very new reader friendly but Sinestro is back as a Green Lantern! Better read Blackest Night, Brightest Day and War of the Green Lanterns. Action Comic reads better than Superman #1 but Superman #1 got me hooked.
Oh, dear. What to do, what to do.
My, oh my. It has been a long time since I've written here and interacted on the unions. In my defense... I have a life. Haha, I'm joking. I love and miss blogging and interacting here. Actually, I've been trying to study my @$$ off for my exams and they finished quite quickly, since I only have two of them. Though, I still think I screwed up. Also, I don't think engineering is my line of subject anymore, off to search for a new one. Information Tech and Computer science seems to fit me more.
I still have unfinished feature blog series to finish off but I'll get to them soon. But to start off again and slowly get back into blogging here, I'll start with a simple feature blog soon. Then I'll get back into participating in unions, The Batcave gets priority since I miss it there and it is one of the first unions (if not the first) I ever joined.
I'll cya around the site!
Pre-Order Gran Turismo 5!!!
So today, I was going to have my flu shot and my dad came along because I couldn't remember where the clinic was and the clinic was a floor below a Sony Customer Service and Store. Got my jab, the nurse was pretty good at distracting (not that I was afraid of needles), she was like "So, have you had this shot before?" I answered confusingly and she told me to lift my sleeve up. Then she asked "Do you remember when was the last time?" and in the middle of asking that question, she (gently but quickly) jabs the needle into my shoulder. I didn't have time to process the pinch like feeling and the fact that she was done already. Kudos to the nurse.
And no, I did not pre-order the game from the Sony store, which was just a floor above from the clinic. I asked my dad if we could go to HMV in a district near by, he agreed and off we went. Then I saw it: Empty DVD cases with the Gran Turismo 5 covers. I was way too excited that I went over to play Halo: Reach on the 360 demo station. Long story short, I pre-ordered the "standard" Limited Edition and found out that the other more "Premium" Limited Editions were sold out! Dad wasnonchalantly excited and I was too busy trying to figure out how I'm going to earn that money again. haha.
Usually, I don't do things like that. Gotta plan all my purchases. Plus no matter what, I always feel guilty after a purchase (even fast food) because the money could've gone to something better.
I was unprepared for the jab (but it was good) and the spontaneous purchase of pre-ordering Gran Turismo 5 but real excited!!! Yes, even the flu jab because now I will be immune from flu for a limited time. Just gotta focus on my assignments and tests for college.
