It's almost that time of the year when I spam my own journal with updates on NaNo again. Which is about all this journal is anymore. And, like every year, I have no idea what I'm even doing. Which is half the fun. Except the part where I got Pokemon X and damn it I've played it way too much since the 12th.
Made it through my finals, though I wish I had done better on the construction materials one. Overall, I had a 94 total, with one grade missing, but even that one being a 100 (I'm pretty sure) would have probably only bumped up the final grade 1-2 points based on weight. But now I can't tell because the grades were taken down for some reason.

As for English, I think I did well enough. Probably about the same grade, as the lowest I got all semester was a 90, and that was on the first two papers. Since I got a 98 on the third and a 94 on the fourth, I should do fine, whenever those get posted.

So now I'm free the rest of the year, and if it weren't for the fact that I have to get up and get my brother up Monday morning (he's out of school starting Wednesday), it'd be a nice day in which I don't have to get up and go anywhere. As such, that won't happen until next Saturday (unless tonight counts, as I work tomorrow night, and I plan on trying to stay up all night).

I've been playing too much Pokemon this year. I started with Platinum at the beginning of the year, Black in the summer, and I now just got a used copy of Soul Silver and am playing that. I like it that it's not attention-dependent (most of the time), and I can watch stuff at the same time. I have watched so much anime this last year, too.

Why do I do this?
I finally broke down and got Pokemon Black last week, after resisting the "temptation" and swearing that I'd wait for the "Grey/Chrome/Void/etc" version. And I've still ended up using 4 Pokemon not in the game already because I couldn't find anything I really liked through the first two gyms.
It's not bad, certainly not as bad as 3rd gen was, but I do find it lacking. It's not as impressive as it's been made out to be, that's for sure.

I guess the price to pay for a three day weekend (Friday-Sunday) is working five days in a row (today-Thursday). Which is also pretty good, because the 8th-10th is when one of the ways to work is closed for bridge work.

I'm finding that I'm watching a lot of anime lately, since the beginning of the year. It was mainly because I could watch and play Pokemon at the same time (coincidentally, I got Platinum about the same time my surge in watching began), as Pokemon doesn't take very much attention to play. Best thing I've watched recently - Summer Wars. Very good movie.

I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue is back. This makes me happy.
I've been listening to a lot of BBC Radio, too, over the last year. Why I no like American entertainment?

This year is not off to a good start. I made a whole three entries last month.

I haven't been to the movies in a little over 3 years. That was when I was forced to go see the first Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. This time, I was forced to go out and see Just Go With It. Which, being an Adam Sandler movie, I was already ready to write off as bad, completely forgetting what the movie even was despite having seen a bunch of commercials already.
But, in all actuality, it wasn't all that bad. Just not really worth the price of admission. It's something I'd probably watch later on TV. And it was even two hours long.
But it also reminded me (other than the commercials) that Sucker Punch is coming out soon. I'd have rather seen that.

And, since only a block away was a Barnes & Noble, we walked over there. And I ended up getting two books for my sister, one for my brother, and I got myself Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I almost also got a collection of short mystery stories by Agatha Christie, but it all would have been too expensive.

I almost want Pokemon Black. Except for the legendary dragon (I'd rather have the Dragon/Electric instead of Dragon/Fire, and I like Fire types), the few I do like and want are in it, including one White exclusive that's in an in-game trade anyway. But I'll just wait for the inevitable third and improved version.

I don't think I've done anything interesting in the last week at all. Just work and school, mostly. And lots and lots of Pokemon. Seriously. At least I'm almost done with the main story.

Mogworld is good. Has a kind of Discworld-esque feel to it without being that similar at all. And I'm only 5 chapters in.

I have the next three days off. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself. It's almost like a vacation.

Playing Pokemon legitimately is kind of weird, considering how I'd do it otherwise would be catching all the Pokemon I wanted at low levels and training them with Lucky Eggs equipped. Instead I'm using what I find and actually grinding. It's kind of fun and refreshing, actually.

I think I'm done with post-Christmas shopping. Except maybe one thing. I'd still really like to own Sherlock.

Continuing from the two books I bought on Friday, I also got two movies (The Great Mouse Detective and Pirate Radio, the former because it's my favorite Disney movie and the latter because I just saw it recently and loved it). I also got Pokemon Platinum (finally), and if I can ever figure out how to set up the WiFi, it might actually prove to be useful. Also, there aren't enough fire types, and I don't like the starter monkey.
