    • Let Me Off Of This Ship

      Fort McMurray. Bane of my existance. Hate the place, hate it with a burning passion unrivalled by anything else. People I know here are fine, I actually have a vehicle to drive and I do actually do some things here that I don't do anywhere else like perform Comedy and make money, but I still hate it.

      Why do I always end up here you ask? Simple, my family. Mom and Dad chose to move here when I left Newfoundland to go to Calgary for University. They both have jobs and they miss me when I'm gone (Empty Nest Syndrome), so I make routine visits here that normally last weeks. Everytime I'm here, I try to convince myself that it's fine, I'll have a good time. Then I hit a wall. Every time I come here I hit a wall, and afterwards all I want to do is go back to Calgary, or even Newfoundland for that matter. This place just freaking sucks.

      This town steals your soul, it's unlike anything you've seen before. It takes away everything good. I used to enjoy sitting around watching TV and playing games, but I don't do that while I'm here because it's not fun here. I don't know why... I'm supposed to be writing stuff like Reviews for TotalPlaystation.com and working on Project LAMP but I never get around to it. Why? Where does all the time go and what do I spend it doing? I DON'T KNOW!!! That's what's creeping me out. It's like time doesn't exist here and we're in a black hole. Might as well be living in Silent Hill while I'm at it, at least there are monsters there so you have an excuse to not want to do something...

    • Video Games And You, The ADD Drug

      13 years ago

      It's more than a hobby to most, it's a lifestyle and a fun one at that. Video games center around everything in people's lives. Of course I'm never exempt from my own rantings so I guess you could say this is about myself as well.

      I play games a lot (Friends can attest to this as I take out a DS from my coat pocket most of the time) and I have a lot of friends who play games a lot. Some are serious players, and compete online and record speed runs (Adam (Psyrell) and Derek (SnapDragon) to name two). They're tried getting me into it and I've always wanted to, but I really can't drive myself to do it. Maybe it's because it requires immaculate timing and accuracy above and beyond what you need to normally beat a game. I know that there are some games that I enjoy, like Ninja Gaiden, that I could probably speed through with no problem at all, and have a good looking run as well. I might think about doing that since the current supposed record is 3 hours (Ninja Gaiden is a game quoted to take close to 20 hours to finish. My "fastest without trying" time is between 5 and 6 hours). I can't seem to really want to get back into it though, I've got too many games to go through as is, as well as wanting a social life.

      Wanting in this sense is probably too harsh a word to say. I do have one, admittedly, but I can't let my parents know. They think I'm a sheltered husk of a human and when they try to introduce me to the "outside world" I look angry but inside I'm laughing my insides out. They don't know about my life in Calgary, and I don't know what they would say if they did. Well, it's not really that bad, but when they found out I had a female roommate, oh man that was hilarious.

      Hmmm... this rant was supposed to be about video games, then I went away for a few minutes and rewrote it. Curse you distractions! So, how was Christmas? Mine can be summed up in four words. Games, movies, clothes, weapons. In that order.

      I recieved:
      Two GBA games, Two Xbox games, Two PS2 games
      Die Hard Trilogy, Star Wars Episode 3, Anchorman, 60's Batman, Beaveis and Butthead Boxset
      Many shirts, two pairs of pants, some socks
      A knife, a shuriken

      Not too shabby honestly. Plus it was nice to be with my family again, even if they don't quite understand me and I confuse them on a regular basis.

      Yeah, this whole rant is filler if you couldn't tell...

      Christmas time is upon us again, and you know what that means. EXPLOSIONS!

      Well... maybe not explosions for most people, but normally around Christmas and New Years we blow up something, or at least fire off a rifle. Living in Fort McMurray and Calgary, I suppose we can't really do that anymore, but it's worth a try I suppose.

    • Happy Birthday To Me

      Name says it all, today (8th) is my birthday and I'm celebrating it in traditional Jonathan fashion by doing schoolwork. Go me!

    • Hallowe'en

      13 years ago

      ProtonJon

      Man, I really wanted to do loads of stuff for Hallowe'en, but it kinda crashed and burned. At least I went to a Dance and our Anime Club's Hallowe'en Showing, both in costume.

      For those in the know, I went as Johnny from Guilty Gear. It went over well, even though I was missing some parts of the costume, like wearing a huge second belt, and the whole being shirtless part.

      ...what?

      Anyways, as for tonight I ended up seeing Saw Two. Not bad, considering I only saw Saw 1 the night before. A friend of mine invited me to her house and we watched Saw, The Aminityville (sp?) Horror, and The Stewie Griffin Story. She dressed up as Princess Zelda, it was insane. I've got pictures of course, and I might throw them up later.

      After watching Saw Two, I went back to campus and "worked" on an assignment. Whoopie. By "worked", I mean started at the monitor and cursed University workloads for hours on end and eventually got nothing done. Now it's 4 AM and I'm watching Bram Stoker's Dracula. Keanu Reeves in a movie where if he says woah, he ruins the entire experience of the time period? I'm down with that.

      Thursday: Two Midterms, Two Assignments, all due across the day. I really want to crawl up in a ball and cry/die (Take your pick really). I'll tough it out though and see how everything goes.

      As for a costume picture...

    • Twist of Fate

      Spontaneous urges to return force me back here. No idea why, but I guess whatever works, right?

      This week is utter pain, and the sad part is this is a defining week as well. Three midterms, one assignment and one quiz, all within the span of three days. If I can get through this, I deserve at laest a week off. Unfortunately I have two exams and another assignment next week so that won't be happening.

      Getting into a really good game and then being forced to put it down due to another commitment has NEVER served me well before. I lost my momentum playing Silent Hill 2 because I went on a week long vacation. I lost my momentum on Ninja Gaiden Black because of two assignments and spending roughly a week camping out on campus. Now I'm working on Devil May Cry 3 and I'll lose my momentum there thanks to this week/these weeks. Guess I shouldn't complain though, I'm a University student, I'm a Scientist, etc... I have to do stuff like this or waste my life away.

      ...but can I help it if at this point I enjoy it?

      Not much, just relaxing here in Fort McMurray, since it's the only thing to actually do here that isn't work.
