Another life update

Eh, I haven't updated live journal in a long time, and it's in the middle of the night, so I thought I'd update the people who actually read this with some of the things that have been going on with my life over the past while.

Over the last few months I've been visiting http://www.furaffinity.net/user/widontknow and http://www.furaffinity.net/user/jiktar as many people who talk to me regularly know, my visits started to become frequent enough that my mother (you know, the one who hates my guts) got tired of it and just told me to figure out a situation out here this trip out our she was going to make life at home 10 times more worse then it already was.

So, I've made quite a few major changes with my life over the past few weeks. I've gone from sitting in my bedroom on my computer chair doing nothing with myself over the course of a year and a half, to suddenly living with two friends in the city. (though for now, I'm still stuck sitting on my ass :v )

To go into a little more detail, as soon as she told me that, I got right on the ball, and went immediately to the only thing I knew would be able to help me in such short notice (given my original plan was to just visit for a week, so I only had the week to get things going). It's honestly near impossible to find a job within a short span of a week, and my parents weren't interested in helping out at all, so I turned to the next best thing I could think of.

Anyway, I called for that about two weeks ago, and got in there last week. Considering my situation, they were more then happy to help out, as long as I went to a bunch of work shops and programs, and talked to people. The only one I am actually interested in is the resume workshop, since my resume sucks ass, I'd rather not have to go to the other ones if I can help it, hopefully I can find a job before any of the other work shops after the resume one, and not have to go to any of them.

So, now I actually live here, in Ottawa with two rather cool guys, though I swear I bug them a lot when I'm not in a good mental state (such as not feeling well and low on sleep), though Wi is far worse when he's even a little drunk.
In any case, my rent and food is taken care of along with other basic needs (and some small things for myself if I'm careful enough with what they give me) until I can actually find a job. Going to be trying overnight first since I suffer from Insomnia and just plain being rather nocturnal.

While I am waiting for being able to actually go out and hunt, I've been playing a lot of PS3, I did in the past on Wi and Ral's profile, but since I started actually living here, I've made a profile for myself so I can play through games and add my own friends and all that, and get my own trophies (though I'm pretty lazy about getting most of them). I have no plans to ever catch up to Wi and Ral's profile, but at least it is something to do. (PSN ID is Hikehyena for anyone who's interested)

As of about last december, I picked up playing guitar, Ral is actually the one who gave me his really old one that he never used anymore, as an early christmas gift, which I still really appreciate. I'm still learning and all that but I'm sure with practice I'll get better eventually, slowly working myself into more complicated stuff really.

In the art department, I've really been trying to get a lot more Hike out there, especially him as his default skinny self, many people think he's a big ol' fatty, but they're completely wrong. I'm doing my best to outnumber the big Hike picture with the normal sized ones so that I can post on my Hikehyena account on FA without people thinking he's, you know, fat. :v
Otherwise, considering I'm far from the financial situation to even pull most of that off, I'm just working with what I can until one point where I am in a better situation.
Well hey, it's my hobby, so it's not something I want to give up on, even when I'm in a poor financial situation, it hasn't stopped me in the past, not that I had anything to do with people just throwing art at me, though that has come to a complete stop and has for the past few months, thank god I say, makes me feel bad when just give me a gift or a picture out of the blue. ;c

Anyway, I'm starting to ramble on at this point, so I'll leave this post as is for now, I'll update on my situation whenever I remember to actually use live journal again.

For anyone who actually reads my entries, thanks.

The Past Week

Nov. 1st, 2009 | 02:27 am
Location: Canada, Ottawa, Appartment
Mood: amusedRawrs
Music: Today - Smashing Pumpkins

I am aware that people know/think/realize that, as much as many people deny it, hard to when people keep telling me they hear that kind of thing (4 different REAL LIFE accounts).

Totally no big deal at all, I know I am one these days.
Anywayyyyy.


Been gone away from home for a few days, and at a computer for the past four, but the first 2/3 were without much communication. I've been visiting people around Ottawa for the past few days, and it really has been a rather wonderful experience for me.

Started out far east in Ottawa on monday, though most of that time was spent sleeping and playing games, when I had little internet access, then on wednesday night, I went to stay elsewhere, which I'll explain now.


I've been at widontknowWidontknow's andjiktarjiktar's place for the past few days, and it really has been a rather good experience for me. Being able to get out of the house, out of my bedroom that I nearly never leave, to being able to spend time with two rather wonderful people (they had another guest over until this evening, but I didn't really talk to him).

Most of the time has been spent doing basically everything I did at home in the first place, being online and chatting, gaming and such..but the other half was actually going out, socializing and everything. The most worth mentionings was friday night, going out to a place nearby to eat with them and a few other guests that came just to go here and eat as a group, though most of it was me just listening in, it really was a good feeling getting out around people for once.

The other major experience was today, where I spent only 4 hours doing it, but it felt amazing.
I took my first trip on Ottawa's public transportation (apparently it's not that good), and spent a lot of time walking around Ottawa as well (it was likely the longest I've been in Ottawa downtown), we ended up grabbing some Beaver Tails (Canadian Pastry) along with later, grabbing an actual bite to eat, all which was well worth the money that I ended up spending on it. During this trip, we did drop off that other guest.
Anyway, we met up with a different person in that time, who ended up coming back to Wi and Ral's appartment with us, along with a few others who came (which one of them I really don't like, but that wasn't a big deal). We ended up playing Rockband for a while (Where one of the guests and I both were challenged to play Green Grass and High Tides on expert, he ended up not finishing it, I beat it while hopping on one foot). I ended up drinking a Bottle of Beer to celebrate before sitting down with everyone to watch Dawn of the Dead (L4D is heavy based off it, I saw why for sure). Now, everything is pretty quiet and I'm sitting alone in the dark, though I don't mind at all.

The most dramatic experience for me during that time though, was getting taught how to play guitar by Ral, it really was a good experience for me, since I've always wanted to play Guitar, I can actually play a little bit now, and apparently I'm pretty good for just my first day.
I'm hoping eventually I can get better.

Another nice experience, was handling their many lizards they have around here. They have Bearded Dragons and Leopard Geckos, along with one other that I can't remember the species of. Currently they have a male and female Bearded Gecko (pictures can be found on Ral's FA I'm sure (link is above), they currently have a set of eggs that will hatch in a few weeks, along with more eggs coming. Was my first time handling lizards either way, it just motivates me to want to have my own eventually, myself. Maybe it'll happen someday.


I've felt really welcome since I've been here, being able to socialize, meet people, feel like I belong for one of the first few times in recent memory, and I really hope to be able to come back again to Wi and Ral's place sometime soon, I really love it here. I've done what I could around their place, trying to keep it tidy and all, seems I'm the first to do that along with pay for my own food really..which is really shocking, that no one does that at all.

Anyway, that's about it really, I just feel really happy, so I thought I'd go ahead and make a journal about my experience from the last week.

Blah Blah Blah

Mood: boredMeh
Music: Journey- Faithfully

Pshhh, I really need to keep up with posting my own stuff. I swear that I read everyone's LJs that I have watched, I just don't always comment.

Anyway, have some life issues going on with my family that I've been waiting to happen for a year, essentially I am getting two boots for my birthday, metaphorically, to keep me out of the house once I become of age.

Knowing me, I'll figure something out in where I am going to go, so no need to worry about it, it just has me fairly down as of late, not able to handle myself on my own yet and all. On top of all that, my 8gig SDHC micro card fried on me a few days ago from a thunder storm, so I've been without my mass of DS games and Homebrew for a little while now, really want to play that new Professor Layton game that came out a week or so ago.

Today, I've been playing a rather old school game someone pointed out to me, it's called "American McGee's Alice", it's a messed up version of the after events of Alice in Wonderland, it is really quite interesting, though rather weird at the same time, I recommend giving it a play. Surprised a game from 2000 has such nice graphics, voice acting and such for its time, though it's age shows at points.

Other then that, most of my time has been spent talking to people (usually the same crowd) on Skype for most of the day, though I've had a break from that for the past two days, it's rather enjoyable and wish I had more people to do that with, even if I am a quiet person.


That's all i can think of right now, hopefully next time I post, it'll be soon, and not much much later like it always seems to be.


PS: Look at my awesome Angreeeee icon. :U

Tablet is dying

Feb. 28th, 2009 | 12:37 pm
Location: Chair
Mood: aggravatedaggravated
Music: Knockin' on Heaven's Door - G 'n' R

It appears that my tablet pen is starting to die again, I don't think there is anything I can do for it this time, and my mouse isn't exactly working all the time either, I have to hit it every so often for it to click like it is supposed to. I need to get a replacement for both of a new tablet eventually, not likely to happen soon with this job market. x:

Otherwise, most of my days are uneventful as usual, they tend to pass quickly depending on if I am playing games, sleeping or not doing anything. Hopefully I can have a change of life style soon, it'd do me so much good, it'd get me out of my usual boring mood that I usually have. x:

I just thought I'd update a bit here, I don't do it enough due to things to update on.

Mood: bouncyRawrs

I didn't realize I haven't made an entry in three weeks, I thought it was a much shorter time frame then that...

Anyways, nothing much has been happening here as of late, I have a number for a place where I can possibly work, but there is definitely no guarantees I will get the job or anything.
Mother is being a lot harder on me because I have this number, I could lose the internet if I don't call it in the next few days, I need to feel ready and now sick and tired all the time if I am going to work, you know what I mean?

On an off topic, it seems that I am still quiet gift prone. Every few days, I get handed something new, its kind of scary really.

Here is one someone commissioned for me of my actual main form, the one that is supposed to be who I am as a dragonkin - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/1959634/

It has some errors, but they were fixed, I am waiting patiently for the finished picture, since it will be a great representation of my character with all the details in the proper place finally.

Yeah, I like art too much, sue me. >|

Anyways, I have nothing much else to say, thanks for reading my useless babbling.

I'm so totally a black mage. >3
Even if they are underpowered in the games I've played them in, I still find them to have the most kick ass outfit, and are just in general, awesome. :v

How about you guys?

Whats Taking so Long. :\

Jan. 9th, 2009 | 05:08 pm
Mood: blahOk

So, I ordered an SDHC Micro Card (8gb) and an R4 for my DS, and neither have come yet.

I hate International deliveries, they take far too long then they need to.

The R4 was promised within 6~8 days at most, its been past that now.
The SDHC, I'm guessing it'll be here in another week or two because it is coming from China, its already been two weeks for that too. >>

Hopefully both will be in soon, so I can enjoy the homebrew and ROM goodness that my DS should of had a long time ago. >|

I want to play Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan Dammit. D:

That is all.

An Odd Feeling

Jan. 1st, 2009 | 06:37 pm
Mood: draineddrained

It is rather weird, but for a grand majority of today, and right now, I've been feeling down in the dumps.
For what reason? I can't really tell you, because I don't even know the answer myself.

Basically, I woke up around 1pm today feeling like this, got out of bed for a few minutes, then just went to lay down again, as if I had no will to stay out of bed, which I did not have at the time. So basically I was laying there, feeling miserable and suddenly feeling rather lonely as well, not sure what is going on. Then of course, I broke down after an hour or two of looking at my screen, doing absolutely nothing but laying within my favourite blanket. So, I admit I cried a little, it made me feel worse, as I am not one of those people who can cry and shout 'I did my best' and feel better afterward as Dane Cook claims people do. I slept for about two or three hours after that after clearing my head for perhaps twenty minutes.

Anyways, I still feel like that, though I'm at least out of bed...now that it is dark and the sun has gone down. I currently have no appetite and have not ate anything all day.

So much for a happy first day of 2009, I don't know why I feel like this, all I know is I just really need a hug from hitchhyena, aka: Rex, right now. x:


Just thought I'd vent about how I have been feeling today, I kind of wish it would go away. :\
