Have a job interview with Pet People tomorrow. I received a call from them a few weeks ago but because of what happened, a pet shop wasn't exactly where I wanted to be. I think I'm a little better now so I hope I get the job. I could really use the extra money.

The first Mass Effect is finally landing on the PS3. No release date yet, so I am hoping they will announce it soon. Really can't wait to finally play the entire trilogy.

Have a new job that I don't think I like.

I'm still trying to get through each day without feeling depressed. Everything feels empty without Sophie. I keep passing the bridge where we used to go for walks and it hurts. I feel shamed by my grief because she was a pet. But she was still everything to me.

One of the many reasons male Sarcastic Hawke is my favorite Bioware character. I'm kind of bummed Hawke will not be returning in DA3.

About a year ago, my laptop hard drive failed so I had to get another one. I was finally able to replace it in May. Of course, Best Buy doesn't have the recovery dvds so I had to wait another three months to have the money to order them. Now Iam trying to install the dvds and I can't. I keep getting error messages (error 332). After looking it up online I found out that because my new hard drive is not Sony it is refusing the dvds. That would have been nice to know.

My favorite track from Brave. I am currently reading Darkbeast by Morgan Keyes. This song kind of became my unofficial theme for the book.

Gamers post the more than discouraging messages they receive on XBL, PSN, and more. Some of these posts are just heartbreaking to read. The gaming community has been under scrutiny as of late which I think really started with the fallout over Anita Sarkeesian's upcoming video series on Video Games vs. Women. I'm actually curious how the finished project is going to turn out.

I really don't like the new Youtube app for the PS3. I used the old one many times because I don't like to turn on my computer. This new app has a really unintuitive search engine. For shame Sony.

Called my dad this morning and he is doing fine. His whole left side needed work. It was all two inches shorter than the right and he was having trouble breathing because of his broken bones. He will go back in a year to get the metal taken out. I'm just glad he is all right.

Got a phone call from my dad this morning to tell me he was in a motorcycle accident. He, thankfully, is okay but he needs to go in for surgery tomorrow. After the accident he had trouble breathing and went to the emergency room. Besides really bad bruising he also has a broken clavicle. He will have to get metal put in to realign his bones.

Ouch. You know, I think there is a reason I started putting up a wall to not let people get close to me anymore. I especially get hurt when a person who you used to trust says the most back hand comment that basically serves to undermine who I am.

I'm sorry. I have worked really hard the past ten years of my life. It may not have been the most successful living, but it was what I decided to do.

Seth Baumgartner's Love ManifestoSeth Baumgartner's Love Manifesto by Eric Luper

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


It's been awhile since I enjoyed such an endearing protagonist. Seth Baumgartner will capture your heart as well as make you laugh. The dynamic between him and Dimitri is perfect. The ending does seem a little abrubt, loose ends get tied up in the blink of an eye, but that does not deter from this excellent book.

The Prince of Tennis, Volume 11The Prince of Tennis, Volume 11 by Takeshi Konomi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The Yamabuki arc is probably one of my favorites of the series. If for the sole reason it introduces quite a few characters that I am fond of.

How Beautiful the Ordinary: Twelve Stories of IdentityHow Beautiful the Ordinary: Twelve Stories of Identity by Michael Cart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

As with many short story collections, there are some hits and misses. I would definitely recommend checking out this book for Gregory Maguire' story alone. The Silk Road Runs Through Tupperneck, N.H. was absolutely heart wrenching.

Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)Across the Universe by Beth Revis
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I just didn't get onto the bandwagon for this book. The characters were flat, the plot twists predictable, and the switch between the protagonist's points of view floundered. Also the book is punctuated by a tasteless almost rape scene that made me cringe.

Honestly if you want a decent science fiction books that kind of covers the same themes with better execution read The Dark Beyond The Stars by Frank M. Robinson.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter, #3)Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This was the high point in the series for me. Two of my favorite characters are introduced (Sirius and Lupin) and we also are given some insight on Harry's father and his friends. The plot moves along quickly and remains engaging though out.

Trying to get all seven books completed before the release of the last movie. I still haven't read book seven so that one will be completely new to me.

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1)Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater




I kept overlooking this series of books for the longest time. It was the beautiful stop motion trailers made by the author that swayed me to give this series a try.
