The Legend of Zelda

Friday, November 30th, 2007

I finally managed to put in the time to beat The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Final tally was around 47 hours played and I don’t think I came close to getting all of the heart pieces and other items. Basically, “super awesome” doesn’t really even do the game justice. The whole thing was just epic. I probably should have beaten the game sooner, but that’s okay – greatness cannot be rushed.

Next up on the games-to-beat list is probably going to be Super Mario Galaxies. It’s actually been a long time since I’ve beaten anything, so I’m glad I finally got Zelda off my plate. I’m really not even sure how they are going to top it in the future. Zelda and Mario have been basically perfected. That does remind me, I need to go ahead and start the last Metroid Prime as well at some point. It’s good to wrap things up and get that sense of closure.

Late onto the Boat

I just started watching Full Metal Alchemist and so far it is definitely good. I have the first half of the Season 1 DVD set and I am sure I will end up plowing through it this weekend. I believe the second half of the Season 1 DVD set is going to be released soon, so I am already looking forward to it. I probably should have started watching this series sooner. So much anime to watch, so little time and money!

I’ve been sick for about a week now, and I’m finally starting to think that I might actually be getting better. Of course, this could just be because I’ve upped the dosage of medication that I’m on. I guess I’ll know tomorrow whether I am actually getting better or not. Hopefully in two or three weeks I should be back to my usual form.

Housing got pushed back to March. Guess it’ll end up being somewhat of a birthday present to myself then. I’m pretty sure it’s not going to really get pushed back again. The problem now is what am I going to do with all my stuff? I need to stop accumulating items since I’m going to end up with no place to store them soon. My room already has too many items cluttering the floor because my closet is already full. I’m probably going to have to buy another container soon so I can get some more floor space.

Now I’ve done it…

…I went and got myself sick. Started feeling it Saturday evening, but it basically hit me and made me miserable on Sunday. What a drag; it probably means I had the bug in me a good while earlier. It was probably a culmination of events, but most importantly, it means that I didn’t take care of myself. I don’t get sick too often anymore these days, which is somewhat ironic because I used to get sick all the time when I was little. Regardless, I guess it serves as a good reminder that I need to take care of myself before worrying too much about other things.

Funny how sometimes insight is gained from the throes of pain. Maybe it is because more intense concentration is required to focus on something in order to block out the pain; which then leads to being able to more readily pierce the clouds that surround us.
