April 13, 2012 - Luck

You know, 13 has always been my favourite number. People have always said it's unlucky. I don't believe them. I think luck is subjective, like pain. If you think something bad is going to happen and you stress over it, you are going have something bad happen. Alternatively, when you think nothing bad can happen, something bad will happen.

Luck is something no one can really control. But I think there are ways to try and augment it. Not will little meaningless charms. With things that actually have real meaning. If you get good luck charms and don't believe in the power they may or may not hold... They are useless. The person puts the power in the charm. You give yourself these chances.

Just remember that you make luck happen. Some magic charm isn't going to make it happen for you.

April 12, 2012 - Role Playing

It's been a long time since I've done a proper role play. Like, a LONG time. Last time was a brief thing that didn't last very long. I don't count that.

Maybe it was because I just wasn't into it. Maybe it was there was no one I wanted to role play with... But I think... I think I'm ready to Role Play again. I think it's finally time to get back into the swing of things!

I might need more time to get the hang of a role play setting again. The ones I used to do were different. Full text with speaking in quotations. But role playing like that is easy. You have the characters to do it. When you have a limited number of characters, it takes a certain amount of skill. You need to pick your words and actions carefully. It may not be flowery and full of detail, but you can put more behind it. It's a faster pace.

Maybe that's what I need in my life. Something more fast paced to get me going.

I should go.

April 11, 2012 - Online vs Offline

There have been times when people tell me to let go of the internet, go out, and make 'real' friends. Real friends... Like the people online I consider friends and family aren't real. Like they are programs generated by the internet to make me feel like I have friends...

This is where those people are wrong. I would put my friends into the categories of Online and Offline. Sometimes they mix. Like when I move away from an Offline friend and they have to be Online until we can meet up next. Or when I'm able to meet up with an Online friend and we can be Offline for a while. The Offline may not last very long, but it doesn't mean that going back Online will make the friendship any less 'real' than it was Offline.

This applies to the newest friends that I've made. They may be Online, but I would like to think we've been fast friends. It's been known to happen. The fact that we met with our words means it's not a shallow physical thing first. One of these new friends is going through a really rough patch. Just because they are Online doesn't mean I can't understand their pain or try and comfort them.

It just means I'm not their to give this person the hug I think they need. But that doesn't make it any less real of a friendship.

What makes a friendship real is how much both people care about each other. A Fake friend is one who is only there when -they- need something from you. They broke up with someone, someone killed their cat, they had a minor fender-bender and their mom/dad took the car away and need you to drive them around. But as soon as -you- need something... Where are they?

They are gone. You can't find them. Even if you can, they won't help you out.

That is what makes a friend 'real' or not. It's how much you are there for them and care about them.

To all my Online and Offline friends, I love you all equally.

Ans especially to my Online Friends, I hope to meet you all someday <3

April 5, 2012 - ME3 DLC

Well, BioWare announced today that they are releasing free DLC this summer to expand on the way ME3 ended. My only problem with the announcement is the fan reaction. I will explain why.
