Stairs of life or some other bullshit
Today was my last day of being 19 and more importantly being a teenager, I can’t believe I’m already 20 years old. I spent my last day of being 19 by doing 6 hours of the most boring database work ever, my fingers hurt from the all the typing. I then celebrated by watching my favorite show on TruTv; South Beach Tow. That show is fucking crack to me haha. Then I finally got to watch some Gintama and now we are here are 12:04am writing my first blog post as a 20 year old. I know I’m making this a bigger deal than what it really is but like I will never ever be a teenager ever again in my life. I’m finally leaning more towards an actual adult for the first time in my existence and I’m not sure if I like it. I’m just so use to chilling and playing my games and overall just having fun, I’m not ready for the shake up. Thankfully I won’t feel the full effect of it until I graduate from VCU but still its just weird. I do however get PlayStation Plus today so its worth it but just barely. Anyways its now time to spend my first couple of hours of being 20 by watching some more anime!
Apparently I also share the same birthday with Rosalind Franklin, thank you Google for making this day a little bit more special.

This is blog is a real pain to write during the summer when there isn’t much going on. Today was another anime day where I have watched over 10 episodes of Gintama and I’ll still be watching episodes till 3. I guess that is the positive thing I can actually get all caught up with Gintama before class starts up. I’m just looking towards the future for some fun at this point the good thing is that I don’t have to look to far since my birthday is in 2 days. Its always nice to see family and get some delicious home cooked food on my birthday but of course I’m most hyped about is the gifts. I know for the most part I will be getting money which is one of the best gifts easily a top tier gift. Even better than that is getting your PlayStation Plus subscription renewed which I know is going to happen so I can FINALLY enjoy all these great games I have not played yet on my vita and PS3. I’m not sure what new games I will be getting on PS3 from it but I am excited to play SSF4: AE 2012 and actually try to get good at a fighting game. The vita has two games that I really want to play though which is Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush! My vita is finally going to get the love it deserves again and I could not be happier! Honestly I’m pretty simple, give me a bunch of games and I’ll be happy for a long time. The best part is the Plus subscription lasts a year so I will have it ready to go on my PS4 day one, one less thing to worry about on launch day! With Plus I will also be able to access some of my old saves that I had left up in the cloud and I can easily transfer things from my two PS3s, man this is awesome. I actually buy more Vita games since I’ll have an ever greater discount on some titles since I have Plus. This will pretty much end my gaming drought which is awesome, I hope Tomb Raider is still free but if not I’ll just borrow it from someone or do a ghetto rental from Gamestop. Lastly I hope I do something fun on my birthday like hookah with my friends, nothing flashy but something that will get out of my room if not I’ll just drown myself in video games and cake. On the real though I hope I get a huge chocolate cake with everything chocolate and for old times sake throw some Pokemon figures on it lmao. If I ever got a cake like that at this age I would cry for real that would be so awesome. Anyways its about time I got back to Gintama!

I didn’t think Gintama would be this good when I first started but at the 37 episode mark I am deeply in love with this anime. Its on the level of my 3 other favorite anime which are Evangelion, FMA:Brotherhood and Steins Gate which you should all watch if you haven’t. The fact that Gintama is a comedy parody type anime and it makes my top tier anime list is a huge accomplishment. Every single episode so far has made laugh out loud many times some episodes make me laugh til I cry. This show has the perfect amount of crazy and weird characters and situations like how do you even write a show like this? There are arcs in the show but nothing really important has happened apparently episode 56 is when we get some heavy plot happening but even without a heavy intense plot the interactions between characters is priceless. It is a long running anime so that could be a huge turn off for people but if you give it a shot you could easily fall in love with the show. Besides watching a lot of Gintama I’ve been watching a lot of Trutv today. I have to say South Beach Tow is the show that world always needed but never asked for. I don’t care what i scripted and what is real its just pure entertainment and fun. I feel like every one is Miami is fucking crazy after watching so much of it haha. I really wish I invented the towing show trend like I would put that on my resume. Overall another lazy day and another day closer to my beautiful apartment at VCU.

These days are more of the same and I truly enjoy that I don’t have a care in the world. Since I have nothing to do I started a new anime today called Danganronpa and its about 15 high schoolers trapped in a high school but the principle and they are forced to play a game where you have to each other in order to escape. I’m a huge fan of these kill and survivor type shows but this show just has some issues like the characters seem 1 dimensional and I’m not a big fan of most of the character design. I will still watch it though and I am only judging this off the first two episodes that are out. I hope it is better than Mirra Kikki which I loved but it wasn’t perfect so maybe just maybe this will better, actually no it can’t BECAUSE all the blood in the show is fucking pink. WHY?! You can tell it is blood but instead of red they used pink like they are some sort of alien bullshit like come on I’m 19 years old and I don’t even get red blood?! SMH. After that I decided to start up Gintama which is a comedy anime that takes place in the Edo period in Japan but instead aliens came and took over Japan so they have a lot of modern and futuristic stuff but the main character is still a samurai. Gin and his friends do a lot of odd jobs for money since they are very poor and after watching two episodes I can say I will love watching all 275 episodes before summer is over. I haven’t seen a good comedy anime so I could see myself marathoning this for the rest of summer.
I also finally watched podcast Beyond 300! It is honestly the best video game podcast on the internet Greg, Colin and Andrew make a perfect team and I just love listening to their stories and opinions, I can honestly say listening to them is like hanging out with them in real life like friends. I HAVE TO fly out to San Fran for Beyond 400 so I can meet them and get a lot of cool free stuff! Then getting to party with them afterwords omg that is dream of mine. I wish I could have a podcast with guys like them. I still can’t believe the president of PlayStation came out and met with all the Beyond fans that is how all corporation heads should be like. I still can’t believe Greg and Colin are going to buy a fan a PS4 day one, if I won that I would be in TEARS!
hmmmmmmmmmmmmm talking about all these games made me really think about my degree and what I want to do after college. I am a strategic advertising major but I really want to work in the game industry since I have the passion of a 1000 burning suns for gaming. I feel like I want to advertise for PlayStation games but not just the big triple A titles but those smaller indie titles that really need that advertising help so they can make their money back. Hell I would advertise for Vita and make the world realize that it has a bunch of amazing games and is totally worth buying! My issue is I have no idea how I will get there but if I try hard enough it could happen a guy with a strategic advertising degree enter into the gaming industry and fulfill his dreams. I guess I should just hit up PlayStation every day about how I could do that hahaha
