Woah...

I'd have to say I'm rather surprised that LJ is still around~ (a pleasant surprise, mind you)

... I'm even more surprised that I remember my password, haha!

So much has changed over the years for me... it's pretty surreal reading my old posts; I remember the events they mention, but by and large I've forgotten most of the details. It's almost like I'm reading another person's story~ an old friend's, perhaps. It strikes me as odd how... articulate... my old posts seemed! Maybe I've grown to be a bit less bubbly as I've aged and the world's lost a bit of it's wonder. Hmm~

It's too bad the image host I used back then has either died or purged my ancient files~ would've loved to take a strole down memory lane in all its hazy glory~

Kind of curious though... any of you guys still around? XD

Though, I've heard these get incredibly inaccurate once you've been schooled in their construction... and I graduated a psych major >_>' I've written many of these for papers and whatnot in the past.

Grain of salt, etc.

Hmm~

Couple of things were clarified for me over the past bit~ think I've got'em squared away now.

Soon as a few more things are confirmed, I'll be good for a while ^___^)b

I've always gotten mixed feelings about the Holidays & New Years, I'm sure this year'll be more of the same! Well, no, its already different, lol. Just haven't quite decided if its different-good or different-bad. We'll see, though.

New goal: 10,000 steps a day.

Before I've just been doing my usual lap of ~1.9mi a day, but that's been feeling inadequate. Mom, as usual, hit me with a Chinese adage when I asked her about it. So what the heck, might as well give it a whirl.

Now I just have to figure out what 10k steps equates to in approximate distance so I can plot out a route :d

... Should probably pick up a pedometer somewhere too.

にゃ~ back from Taiwan!

... and I already miss the people and awesome food! It really feels rather dead around here stateside after my three week trip back to Taiwan. It just feels like there's so much more to do there and so many more people out and about (and not in their cars) at any given time in the day.

I mean, I know that there are neighborhoods (particularly newly developed ones) that are far more quiet and inactive than where I'm living now... but its still a little sad to do my 2 miles and only see maybe a dozen other people on foot doing anything at all.

One of these days, I'm going to pack up and move somewhere more populated... if only because I rather enjoy the presence of other people even if I don't know them.

Horse Bird!

http://news.mmosite.com/content/2010-09-19/chocobos_renamed_horsebird_in_ffxiv_jp_fearful_monster_screens,1.shtml

Really? seriously? Just when you think Square-Enix can't possibly screw up the Final Fantasy franchise anymore than they already have at various points in the past.... they apparently thought it was a good idea to rename the FF staple: Chocobo to "Horse Bird."

Shortly after they changed it in the JP version of FFXIV, it drew such an outrage that they reverted the change and issued an apology.

Part of me laughed at it a little, seeing just how out of touch their developers are with their base audience... and another part of me honestly believes that if they had made the change on the NA version of FFXIV first, they wouldn't give a rat's ass about what the gaijin think of their obviously well thought out change.

(no subject)

So I found my bow and quiver (missing an arrow, no idea where it went) cleaning out my closet.

One of these days I'll find the time to go out and shoot a bit at an archery range... assuming there's one around here. Haven't used'em since college~
