A Time to Celebrate

 

20150907_174308

It’s been a very good week for me. One of the main reasons is the fact that I finally have my very own Summer House. It’s like a teal colour with a veranda at the front. I’m really happy with it, so happy that I decided to have a celebratory gathering with my family.

 

I always wanted to have a nice little cabin or summer house to write in and to draw in. If Roald Dahl can have a cabin, then surely I could, and that’s why I got one. It took quite a bit of time but it was worth the wait.

 

I also spent some time baking brownies for my sister as it was her birthday recently. I intended to make it like a cake and spell out her name in the form of smarties. However, it didn’t come out as I had planned. The tray was too big so I think it ended up too thin. I couldn’t really spell out her name in smarties as well as they were breaking up the brownies. Whoops! Still, she thought it tasted good and she appreciated it and that was the main thing.

 

I completed the second run through of the Atelier Shallie game. All I need now is to earn 6 trophies overall and when I do it will be the first ever time that I earn a platinum trophy on the PlayStation. =D

 

The Mario Maker game came today and the whole family had a go at playing some of the custom made levels online. We are all very impressed with the system and I think it’s really brilliant of Nintendo to allow fans to create their own Mario-esque levels. I’m going to really enjoy creating plenty of levels.

 

To top it all off I had a humongous epiphany for my main fantasy story. I figured out its setting for the overall story as well as the settings for the first book. I’ve been spending literally day after day brainstorming all ideas big and small.

 

This week has been a very good week and I intend to keep up this trend. =)

My Birthday Weekend

Birthday Cake

My Birthday week has been pretty good.

On Friday I played some games with my brother. We completed the original Donkey Kong Country game as a tag team. I still need to get used to the original Snes controller as I died quite a lot! We’re getting closer to completing the Mario 3D World. I find that level mega hard.

On Friday I spent most of the time just chilling and writing down future creative ideas whenever they came into my head. I spent most of the evening watching Captain America: Winter Soldier with my family. To me, you can’t beat a good evening if it’s filled with a Marvel film. I got a lot of nice presents and cards too. I got Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea from my brother. I got Dungeon Girls manga, Avengers: Age of Ultron T-Shirt and Non Non Biyori art book from my parents and swell pair of jogging pants from my sister. Plus, some cash from my relatives.
The icing on the cake, pun intended, was that my sister made me a lovely birthday cake. It was Mario complete with toadstools, pipes, coin bricks, clouds, piranhas and stars.

The following morning I booked a slot to go Segway at the nearest forest (which is still pretty far from home!) It was my treat for my family. It was really good fun. I was slightly anxious as there were 14 available spaces and when I checked there were 5 left and that means that there were going to be a lot of people attending.

We arrived three minutes before our time slot so it was a bit of a rush. We all walked. Then, we power walked. Then, we lightly jogged… five minutes late and we basically ran for it. XD We parked in a different car park from last time and we were not familiar with the terrain of this car park. Haha. The events never usually start on time but being late was not ideal for anyone, especially for me. I arrived at a good time and luckily the Segway was still on

It was even better as my family were the only ones who took part in the actual session! All the strangers who have booked have either cancelled or didn’t bother to show. It was like a personal tutorial for everyone in the family. We all had fun and it was just as good as the previous time that I went.

I am very tired now so I will probably take this opportunity to spend the next few days to chill out. I haven’t had much sleep as I’ve been too busy having fun.

Thanks for Reading. =)

Namaste.^^/

My Birthday

Happy Birthday to me!

Haha!

 

Yesterday I turned 26 on the 26th day of June. That was a funny coincidence. Or was it? 😉

 

My kind of day is a peaceful one. No noise, no fuss, just quiet time with a few familiar faces. Fortunately, my birthday was a quiet tranquil day. I spent the majority of the morning drawing. I told myself that I was going to have that day to rest, but really, drawing and writing bring up a lot of positivity in me. I find it very rewarding when I get a clear picture in my head of a scene or character. =)

 

I spent the afternoon watching DVDs of the anime, Cat Planet Cuties! I’ve seen up to 6 episodes and I’m very much enjoying it. It’s very cute and I really enjoy the art.^^/ I’m definitely going to watch more episodes. All of them in Japanese audio.^^

 

I received many birthday wishes, text wishes, many cards and a few presents. All the presents are wonderful. =)

 

I got the Non Non Biyori soundtrack, and I’m definitely happy about that. If you have read my blog a few times you would know how much I love Non Non Biyori, especially the music. So, I greatly appreciate this. I greatly appreciate High School DxD blu-ray. It is one of my favourite anime, possibly in my top 5. I then got the Atelier Escha and Logy game. I’m enjoying the anime and I can see myself enjoying the game, and low and behold I received this game as a gift. I received another gift- a Donkey Kong T-shirt. Haha. =D

 

I got a birthday cake from my parents in the form of the Avengers. And if there’s something that I learned this year it’s that I’m terrible at cutting. I made a total mess of the cutting so I had to relieve myself of those duties and pass the responsibility on to Mum. XD I had that cake and it was delicious, everyone had the Captain America part but I chose to have the parts of Iron Man. Haha.

 

Then I just spent the rest of the evening playing Mario Kart 8. It was fun but my brother, as kind as he is, switched my bike with a rubbish one without me knowing…rascal. XD

 

In short, it has been a very nice day.

 

Oh- speaking of High School DxD, I found out this morning that a third season of High School DxD has been announced. So yes, yesterday was a good day. For once, the sun and rain have treated me kindly. =)

 

Namaste.^^/
