      In my investigation of trying to stop getting annoying notifications of every move my watchlist makes (in the top corner). I accidentally unsubscribe from everyone. I tried to go and follow everyone again.. .but that function didn't seem to work because users I follow still seems to be empty.

      So everyone just lost a follower until I figure it out. hahahah.

    • Kellyrenea

      So here we go...

      9 months ago

      Posting a journal via my phone because I am just lazy enough that I can not fathom walking into the other room...

      RTX is next month! I am not attending because I've committed to too many conventions this year and the ticket prices just didnt work for me.

      BUT the awesome @leprasaun and lovely Ashleigh (idk her rt name) will be staying with us and hopefully be keeping us updated on all the community meetups. I hope to see some of you soon!

      Life has been pretty hectic and crazy. My dad just started his second round of chemo. He is still active and all in all has pretty good quality of life. I worry about him a lot and I am grateful for every chance I get to see him and my mom and I call them almost everyday to talk about nothing.

      I cannot remember if I have told people here at all but if I have I am sorry for the reruns. Ronnie and I are trying to have a baby. Which is not as easy for some of us. I've been through every test and am now taking fertility meds. Meanwhile, 3 of my friends got pregnant their first month trying. 2 are due next month. Nothing makes you feel more defective than your closest friends getting pregnant right away. But I'm learning to deal. I'm not sure that what I am doing now is going to work, but if it doesn't there are other things to try. It is just emotionally draining to have a fresh wave of disappointment every month.

      Ronnie's studio has a mobile game coming out and I think it is pretty good. Ronnie programmed a lot of the game play himself and all the play tests have been positive. My nephew loves it and begs Ronnie to let him play on his phone when we visit. I will share more details when I can but of course everything has to stay secret until they are about to release.

      Anyway. That is all from me. Hope everyone is doing well.

      So sad to hear the news today. :(

    • Kellyrenea

      1 year ago

      Well, I was compelled to log on for other reasons (Monty, of course). But I've been meaning to come make an update anyway. So here it goes:

      Dad is still in chemo. (3 months left). He just had a CT Scan last week and so far he is responding to treatments. He has to get a colonoscopy in 3 month to see what real progress has been made. But so far that is where we are at. The bad news (to me) is that the doctor said colon cancer doesn't really go into remission.. so we are just kind of doing what we can while we can and staying hopeful. But knowing that this disease is likely to be what takes my dad, is kind of hard to face.

      Other than visiting him as much as possible we have been busy with a great many things. We are trying to get pregnant. Harder than my two already pregnant friends make it look. (they got pregnant their first month trying!) I've got an appointment already to talk to a doctor about some issues that I've known about since I was a teenager but are only relevant now that I am trying to get pregnant instead of trying not to get pregnant.

      I'm doing yoga at least once a week. Trying for twice a week but things have been so hectic. I really like going to class. The teacher at the place by my house is really helpful.

      We went to PAX South. Which was awesome. People recognized my cosplay character which was almost unexpected since Tales games aren't super popular here. The food was probably the lamest part of the convention. I didn't really expect much better but I'm use to A-Kon which has amazing food trucks in addition to the crappy food that I was hoping they my do something similar.

      I am taking an astronomy class through coursera.. for the second time actually.. I started last year but had to give up to plan the wedding. But I'm determined to finish this time. Unfortunately it is taking up most of my after work time. Which is pretty stressful.

      I will be 29 in March... I'm trying to think of something different to do. For some reason I feel like it being the last year of my 20s I should do something kind of special. I'm considering kidnapping Ronnie and making him stay at a B&B somewhere with me. We'll see. So far all my plans in my head seem lame.

      There have been many other little events but it's hard to keep track. Suffice it to say that I haven't been at home on the weekends for the better part of 5 months. Our poor cats are desperate for attention.

      Anyway, I hope you guys are doing well. And are less busy than I. I will be around Austin for RTX but have not decided if we will attend. The price the past few years has been steadily increasing. We'll see.

      I've been meaning to tell you all week that I bought Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for the Wii.

      I went in to Game Stop and asked the guy about some traditional RPGs, but told him I don't have handhelds, which almost stumped him. As he was talking I saw that game on the wall. I had no clue there was a sequel to Symphonia. I'm about 4 hours into it. So cheesy, but a good vacation from violence and FPSs.

      • Dopp ROLL TIDE

        3 years ago

        I'll be getting tales of graces as my next rpg, probably. I'm going to bounce playing symphonia and finishing up Uncharted 3 for now.

      • Kellyrenea

        3 years ago

        It is really cheesy but I fnd that most tales games are that way. This one just got an extra dose.

        I hope you enjoy it.. It's still one of my favorites though not a lot of hardcore tales fans like the monster collecting. I thought it was fun.

        I need to replay tales of graces now..

      Saw two envelopes today. One for you and one for Ronnie, both addressed to Round Rock. I put stamps on them. smiley8.gif

      • BlackPenguin Guardian x6

        3 years ago

        I guarantee my stamps to not be tilted by more than 10 degrees, or your pizza is free. Or something like that.

        Also, lickable stamps ftw.

      • Kellyrenea

        3 years ago

        Editing not working I should have said *moisture activated* though my family totally did the lick and stick method.

      • Kellyrenea

        3 years ago

        I expect the stamps will not be tilted or slobbery!
        Haha.

        Do they even make moisture activated stamps any more?

      Oh man... I just realized how far behind I am O_O

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tales_%28series%29#Flagship_Titles

      I've only played TWO! I know that one isn't out and some others are on handhelds, but I should have known about some of the others on the PS2. Actually, after seeing the cover for Tales of the Abyss, I remember it from working at Game Crazy, I just never put it together with Symphonia...

      • Kellyrenea

        4 years ago

        Haha, Yeah it is very cliche anime. Symphonia II was good enough. Not as good as the first game but good enough that for my first Anime convention I dressed up as one of the main characters.

      • Dopp ROLL TIDE

        4 years ago

        Plus it's all very cliche anime.

        I didn't know there was a Symphonia II...

      • Kellyrenea

        4 years ago

        yeah, I actually played Symphonia II first (because it came out around the time we got the Wii) and then we had to hunt for the original and played through it. But those are really the only two we played until Vesperia ... I find that most people do not even know what I mean when I say Tales series .. they have a smaller following than a lot of series. But I'm glad I could help you rediscover them .. they are very good games.. The dialogue is the only thing I sometimes get tired of. There is just so much of it. haha.

      You should inform Ronnie that he is Internet famous. The #97 AHWU entry was one of 2 videos they used this week. Good stuff.

      Also, I seem to remember you asking me to ask around about Crystal River Inn. Didn't hear much, other than that it's a popular spot. One friend said some negative things about it. I hear people talk about it being small too.

      • BlackPenguin Guardian x6

        4 years ago

        Oooh, yeah. That's a pretty cool place. I played drunk, oversized jenga there.

        But I should mention that it's right next to Zelick's which is a pretty sweet bar.

      • Kellyrenea

        4 years ago

        yeah it is pretty small but our wedding isn't going to be incredibly huge.. We actually went and walked around it when I was on vacation. .it's a really great place I think and Ronnie really liked it.. But we may check out other venues before making a final decision

      I hadn't seen your post in the RvBTX news thread until now, but if it's alright with you guys, I could use the lack of hotel fees. Not sure what Jake had in mind, but given that I'll be his transportation, I think he'll need a spot as well. And I can still bring my 360 and 26" TV. I think I still have 3 controllers sitting around, but batteries may become an issue if my rechargables continue on their current path. And I have all of RvB and RT Shorts seasons 1 and 2. I know you got the remastered set at RTX, so I won't need to bring that, but I can bring Recollection.

      Maybe you should write your own HTNS-type website.

      I'm making a specific, concerted effort to eat more fruits and veggies during Operation No Guts, No Glory. Eating lots of fruits and veggies is good for your body, but shopping for them sucks when you're used to mostly just getting pasta, sandwich stuff and frozen food.

      As far as what made you two sick, it may have been something you ate, but I doubt it would be caused by the diet change itself. Abruptly switching the food you eat can be a shock to your digestive system, but the worst you'd be looking at is a temporary metabolism slowdown as your system adjusts; actually getting sick from it would require you to have eaten food that was bad, and usually you can tell that by examining it before you buy it. I've had food poisoning before; it's not fun.

      Not at this point. That would require moving back to Waco or commuting, neither of which is an option for me. I thought about trying to get a job in the ITS down there and have free schooling, but I don't see that happening for now. Aside from that, trying to find a job in Waco and paying for school and rent is just not a possibility for me.

      People found out how to make random "interests" for the profiles, and it would send alerts to people watching them, so a ton of people did stuff like "annoying people by creating random interests" and shit like that. There were a number of bizarre ones, and some that were somewhat disturbing. Either way, I spent most of a day clearing out pointless alerts as people kept adding interests. That has been fixed, according to certain journals I've seen from people who were doing it. I'm all for having fun, but that's just juvenile bullshit.
