The thing about posting infrequent posts is that I often forget about what I do, and what I want to write about. Yet I can't help but not post sometimes because I am getting more busy by the day. Between school, the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and the revival of what may be my social life; I've been keeping myself busy. Honestly, I feel as though the world was waiting for me to turn 18. Maybe, life just didn't start until now; I'm not a kid anymore and I am growing in more ways than I can imagine.
Since my Birthday I have not actually done any drinking or used any of my 18+ abilities I gained, in fact I've been acting more and more like I did when I was 16. Maybe my mind is regressing or maybe it is just something new altogether. I'll most likely be going to the pub on Tuesday however, for Anna's birthday. Speaking of her, we have gotten over our differences and are fitting nicely as friends. The problem holding us back before was actually the same problem I had with Erin. The unwillingness to let go... I actually realized it after talking to Erin, now that we're friends again. So after letting it all out and severing that last tie, it allowed Anna and I to actually be friends, same as it happened with Erin again. Anna's got a lot to learn though haha, I've been giving her advice with this guy; the only time things really mess up is when she doesn't listen to me and goes out on her own. Its just one of those situations where love is a game, and you have to win if you want the prize.
As for winning, I mentioned Marvel vs. Capcom 3? The game I was extremely excited for? Turns out I'm amazing at the game and on the day after release, after killing my brother 20-2 I was hungry for more competition. We went down to Tubby's and I played some games with the best players in Calgary. Suffice to say, there was a tourney and I took first place (free meal, yeah!). Surprisingly I think that it would actually be plausible for me to do well at the tournament next month. First place is 70% of the entry pot + $500 cash. To be honest though, I've never actually competed live in person before so I don't know if the nerves will strike me. After all, one of the best MvC2 players in the world is coming, so like no pressure or anything. Either way, will be excited; I'm also excited to make everyone detest the game at Anna's party.
Anyways, for school I've started to read through and do the assignments for English, Psych, and Sociology. I won't be able to do much because I'll be locked down with this stuff, but I'll still try and be interesting hahaha. So the other day I went to an absolutely amazing Japanese restaurant called Kinjo. It was one of the best dining experiences I ever had, I went there with Anna on Saturday and it was packed. But due to my amazing luck two seats opened up at the sushi bar and we skipped the 30+ people line. First off was the way the bar was laid out, it was in a massive oval in the center of the building. The bar is wrapped around the actual kitchen where the staff cooks and cuts everything, then the cool thing is that in front of the bar table there is these plastic boats which float around carrying food all around the entire bar! The food was excellent, and the energy there was really friendly, with the staff constantly singing songs and publicly humiliating everyone. I actually ended up talking to the blonde next to me and her boyfriend, and it was actually really fun overall. I forgot how neat it is to talk to people you don't know.
Great times, and I'll be sure to post something after the party but for now I'm pretty tired, and just wanted to check in with my crap. =)
