Life Goes On

Not a whole lot to report lately ... life goes on.  RealWorld got busy with my job going fulltime and approaching the second busiest time of the year (July and December, who would have thunk it :p ).  Bit of a squabble in NULL between me and another member so been breaking from eve for the last week to let my temper cool off.  In a great coincidence Crunchyrolls finally supports ChromeCast which means I've gone into Otaku mode this week finishing Hidamari Sketch,  Strike the Blood, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, and Omamori Himari over the last week or so.  Will probably start "Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga" tonight and see if its actually as bad as MAL says it is.

(IF anyone is curious about what I watch, needs suggestions, or has questions about anime feel free to hit up my MAL profile.  One of the few things I'm passionate about.)

Steam sale started the other day and my wallet is already suffering.  Picked up some Crusader King II DLCs, Supreme Commander 2, Company of Heroes, AI War: Fleet Command, Agarest: Generations of War, Agarest: Zero and Democarcy 3 so far.  So lots of distractions from EVE and things to do, ontop of the umpteen amount of hours I spend on a friends minecraft server.

Ishkad . . . 06/11/2014

Got forced at work yesterday, two hours of overtime.  Missed the Rag kill.  Evidently they had been chasing him around a bit in between a few systems before finally getting a decloak and catching him.  He ejected from the titan and it was briefly considered if they should take the rag or not.  Turns out it only had travel fittings and the pilot had only been in it a few hours.  In the end it got burned.

FIRST! 05/26/2014

So A little less than two weeks ago I was able to knotch off one of my eve life goals . . . getting on a titan kill!!  It was a long time coming.  Atm don't think there is any publically avaliable fraps but if I find some will link it.

The kill itself went really quick which kind of surprised me.  From Jump In till he died was maybe a minute 30 seconds.  During that time PL slows had been pinged and fleet had almost doubled, most people weren't able to get on the killmail.  I think this quote sums up how a lot of people felt:

A Hashu Life, End of May


A lots happened over the last month or two both in-game and at home.  At home work has been chaotic.  In mid April Supervalu killed our morning part-time shift as they began hiring new full time positions from those working part time.  I moved back to afternoons.  Ironically the timing was amazing as it happened the same weekend as Anime Detour (which i had forgotten about).  I missed the first day but noticed a random Facebook comment and managed to make it Saturday afternoon.  Got to see the panels I wanted and played Mahjong till they kicked us out of the gaming room.  Fast forward to mid-may and once again they are changing the part-time schedules, and guess what, there is a morning shift available again.  I decided to go for it as I just feel that working in the mornings provides me more opportunities with eve and friends in the afternoons.  Just have to readjust to waking up at 4:30 am.  First day of the new shift there is a new notice for hiring full timer again and decide to sign up for it this time.  Three days latter I get a call offering me a full-time spot.  Of course I said yes, a pay raise + health and retirement benefits ftw!  On top of that my first week as full-time I got trained in on using forklifts.  Normally that takes several months/years before your seniority allows that but evidently this summer is expected to be heavy and they are mass hiring/training folks.

Unfortunately during the same time that I've been on full time (last two weeks) I've also been sick.  I developed a sore throat at work and I've had it for over a week and a half now.  Was frustrating as I had to cancel out on a Mahjong session and decided not to go to a Lindsay Stirling concert @ the Myth.  So between that and immediately getting twice as much overtime as I did as a part timer its been busy and exhausting.

Lucy Johnson
Death of  A Friend

Around the same time as the new work schedules my dad called me about our dog Lucy.  For several years she has been steadily going down hill, having bad arthritis and stomach issues.  At this point she couldn't stand on her own and couldn't control her own bowels.  She also had unknown masses on several spots on her back.  Our last dog zeke had died on the operating table attempting to remove masses and we were really fearful of taking her in for surgery as well as the masses had gotten too big.  It was a hard call after thirteen wonderful years but in the end we decided it was unfair to her to force her to keep going and made the decision to put her down.  It still honestly hasn't sunk in that she is gone, mostly because I don't live with my parents anymore so I won't really notice her absence till i go back for a visit.  I'm kind of dreading it as she was such a major part of my middle school and high school years and its going to hurt when it finally sinks in that she is gone.

A Bright Future!

Apart from Lucy's death, future seems bright.  Work is going well (assuming I get over this damn sore throat), new computer is working great (Eve on Solid State Hard Drive ftw!)  Started watching Anime again after a month long (unplanned) break.  Finished the first season of Hidamari Sketch and catching up on Nisekoi.  Can never get enough of SHAFT productions.  Game of Thrones season is almost over already.  Not looking forward to waiting another 9 months for the next one.  Its June, the suns out and Summer is among us.  Spend the morning outside reading and it was wonderful!  There should be an eve post or two coming up as I (finally) got on my first titan kill (don't think there is any fraps).  Otherwise more of the same after G-B was taken, some drama in Provi (as usual) but nothing all that surprising or mind shattering.  There also should be at least one more Burn Factor log release coming up soon as i find the right links to post.  Its a few weeks old but thankfully I was never stabbed in the ass with an iron poker as was threatened . . .
