I feel like I’m having a mid-life crisis twenty three years early or a quarter life crisis two years too late. I don’t know what I’m doing with myself anymore, in any subject… Love, Work, Social… Are there any other subjects of life? If there are, I’m lost in those as well. I don’t write any more, well I am now but this doesn’t count. I use to spit out works of fiction thrown together from the cobwebs of my mind daily or at the very least weekly… I didn’t finish 80% of them but the point was I still did something. Now I just waste away. I sit in my apartment and look at my cat judgingly (is that a word? I feel it is but spell check seems to think otherwise) as I take pictures of her being stupid. Why are you so happy, cat? I literally SnapChat drew her as the Green Arrow with the caption “You have failed this citty.” I’m pretty sure I’ve hit rock bottom on the #firstworldproblems scale. I get my life could be worse. I could be dirt poor, homeless, have literally no one, could be bed-ridden with a horrible illness… I’m in decent health, with a good paying job, living on my own and (more importantly) supporting myself in a decent apartment in Los Angeles yet I just feel so unhappy. I feel lonely. Dead inside. I do the same things every single day. And it’s my fault… I’m too lazy to change it. I wake up, eat, play video games, audition for things, work, work out at the gym, poke my cat, lay in bed and gaze at the ceiling or a laptop until I’m bored enough to just pass out. My self esteem has gone to shit, which is surprising based on how I hide it I guess. Maybe it’s not even that… I still think I’m awesome but then I just have random crippling issues of self doubt. TOO LONG DIDNT READ I NEED TO MAKE FRIENDS OUT IN LOS ANGELES BECAUSE I AM BECOMING SO FUCKING ANTI-SOCIAL AND BORING AND HATING MYSELF. THE END.

Am I the only one annoyed by this? And I’m not speaking of the “You can’t marry a man you just met” part but the “about damn time, Disney” part. Your ground breaking empowering movie about how you can’t just fall in love with and end up with someone you just met… Is a movie where the main character basically ends up with someone she just met and spent a day with? Shit. I’m pretty sure it’s the fastest any character has ended up with someone. Anna and Kristof spend literally a day together. Least most other “Princesses” spent weeks or months getting to know the other person. Hell even Ariel spent a few days courting Eric.
I try to live by this.

Life Update. California is growing on me. I’ve adopted a cat (Artemis), made some great friends, started costuming and props again, and worked on my favorite show. Look for me in season five. I’m pretty happy.
Confused? Let me clear up that hit damage you just took, blurring your screen and leaving you feeling like I had a stroke while writing that title. I don’t care “First Person Cinematic” in video games, actually I’ll go a step further and say I loath them. If someone took them down an alley and did horrible things against them with out their consent, they saw me and cried out for help? I would just keep walking. Harsh? Yeah probably, but it makes my point. Now, I will say there is an acceptation to this hate… Mute main characters. When it comes to FPC (can I copyright that?) like Half-Life… I love those games, those games are cool to me.
Now you might be saying, “Dubbya Tea Eff Americo!? Bioshock Infinite is a fantastic game and that game is a FPC!” And I would simply respond by saying “Thank you person I made up for bringing up a game I hate for this very reason! How convenient of you and what a fantastic segue you created for me! Also you owe me five dollars for using my term. You can’t use it. It’s my word!” But seriously… I hate Bioshock Infinite. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good game… Which I know seems like an oxymoron but my gripes with the game aren’t on a gameplay level… Okay well maybe I do have some gripes (like the Call of Duty shift in game design and reduction of quality atmosphere when compared to Bioshock 1) BUT IT’S STILL A GOOD GAME!
My gripe comes with the cinematics. All of Bioshock Infinite is told from the first person perspective, and it’s horrible. First Person, to me, should be used only to convey of feeling of unison between the character and the player. This is where mute characters shine. Bioshock lacks this… Booker blabs his mouth from first person and interacts with the story all the time in such a way… It makes me not care. I can’t see Booker, I can’t ever really feel an opinion about him because all I hear is his voice. It’s a fantastic voice, don’t get me wrong… But it doesn’t work.
Look at The Last of Us… Could you imagine that game working with all of it’s story told in first person through Joel’s eyes? It wouldn’t. You wouldn’t see all the subtle facial expressions that convey more emotion than words. I felt more for Joel in twenty minutes with his character than I did the entire time with Booker. Just think about the game for a second… Who are the characters that you feel the most for? Pretty sure the top answer will usually be Elizabeth, because you SEE her and how she reacts. I’m not saying Infinite should have spent ALL of it’s time in 3rd person cinematics, but I feel it’s constant focus on First Person ruined a story that could have had much more power.
I blame Bioshock 1 for this… Not that it did anything wrong (it did everything right), but because of how fans responded to it, they wanted to just do the same thing but bigger. You can’t have a bigger story the way Bioshock was presented… No one cared about Jack (Jack was his name right? Shows much I really care.) because he never spoke, you never really saw him… He had a story but he was a mute. The story was of Rapture, of the characters in Rapture, and what happened to Rapture through out the game. It was a fantastic roller coaster. Bioshock Infinite is like riding a roller coaster with your eyes closed and someone narrating everything to you.
Not every game has to adhere to my mentality… I mean none will because who cares about opinions? Some games are designed to work with FPC… like Call of Duty. I think the main character talks in those games… I’m going to go back to playing The Last of Us now… That game is awesome, you should go play it too.
This couple’s wedding announcements are better than yours.
These are beautiful.
