Well it's the last day of 2018 for me, so I thought I might share my major accolades/going-ons for the year.
I got a new job. After getting a raise at my old job, another company decided to buy them out (seriously I don't think I ever got those few extra quarters). I left my job at the grocery store and picked up work at a store called 2nd & Charles. It's a place to pick up new & used books, CDs, vinyl, movies, and most importantly, video games-new and retro. I also got partnered again with Youtube, so I am now making some money on my personal channel, which is really cool!
I went to a few concerts this year, all of which I wasn't supposed to go to. To elaborate, my mom and my stepdad bought expensive tickets for a Foreigner meet-and-greet, however my mom had to get her gall bladder removed so she wasn't able to attend-so I went in her stead. It was a pretty surreal experience meeting a rock band, but I still feel bad my mom never got to go. Much like the previous concert, my mom fell ill again, so I went with my stepdad to go see Judas Priest and Deep Purple. It was my second time seeing Priest and my first seeing Purple live. I can always count on Priest to deliver a good show, but Purple was the cherry on top of the rock and metal sundae.
I flew out to Nebraska with my brother to see my dad who was there for business. I did nothing spectacular aside from going to the Omaha Zoo. Other than that, plenty of corn. I also got back from my holiday trip to Hawaii (again to see my dad), which went pretty well. The beaches are amazing and the weather was always nice. I didn't do anything extravagant like going to luaus or scuba diving. I did all that when I lived there. Still, it was nice being able to spend Christmas with my dad.
Achievement hunting are going well, I just perfected Lego Star Wars 3 yesterday, but as of right now I'm trying to get Destiny 2 and Red Dead 2 perfected. Destiny 2 in particular is proving to be troublesome due to the damn triumph achievement. Looking back, I can say my proudest achievement earned was the achievement for beating the Evil Within on akumu difficulty. Cause fuck getting killed in one hit am I right?
And the big one, RTX. That has been consistently been my crowning event of for the past three years now. Meeting up with fellow fans and friends, seeing the RT community come together for one big extravaganza, and the food. My god, the food. I could go on but I'll just leave it to your imagination because whatever you are thinking about RTX I've probably already said.
I'll probably do another journal tomorrow about resolutions and all that crap.
