I Have Gotten So Bad At This!
Hi Everyone!

It's been a few months for sure!

Life has been really interesting, but overall positive.

I have a new boss at work that I seem to get along with really well. He's given me the freedom to do what I feel is needed to get the work done and then some. We talk engineering and design a lot, so it's nice that my opinions and input are validated and valued.

My social life has been a lot of fun. A lot of going out, hanging out with friends, bike riding, a lot of hanging out at my friend's place in his pool too. I just wish I could get to the beach more. I've only been once for like an hour.

I feel like I should have more, but there isn't too much. Everything is just sort of solid :)

I hope everyone else is doing well as well! If not, feel free to reach out, as always! <3



Happy New Year!
I had actually posted this on my Facebook. It should sit on here as well, as it really does cover my 2016 and where my head is at now. So, enjoy :)

This year has to have been easily one of the worst years I have had in a long time. What with fighting depression due to my neck injury, failing at buying a house, falling into a financial crisis, and nearly giving myself an ulcer due to it during the first half of the year to dealing with my apartment flooding, and nearly losing my graduate school progress due to Dowling's closure in the second half all while dealing with a failing relationship throughout most of it, I could definitely see why I feel that way.

I spent the majority of my day yesterday reflecting on everything that has passed this year, and even though it all sounds negative, all I could think about is the wonderful people in my life that have stuck by me through it all. I have a great deal of love in my life, and I always have. Over the years, I have never lost sight of that, and I will never allow myself to, no matter how dark and bleak life may get. Love is the most important thing to me, and the people close to me in my life make it so easy for me to devote myself to it. You people know who you are, and I couldn't be more blessed to have you in my life to share that love. Whether you have been in my life since we were little kids, adulthood, or we have only recently gotten close, words cannot describe how grateful I am to have you in my life.

Many of you keep telling me that "2017 will be the year of Jon / Belf", and I disagree. I don't want it to be about me. I want it to be about love and compassion. I want it to be about people opening their hearts to the love in their lives and to stop focusing on the negativity that consumes them. I learned this lesson so many years ago and I want other people to be able to learn and do the same. The world would become a much brighter place.
Here is to a far more positive new year, filled with love and compassion. I am looking forward to growing my relationships, both old and new, with you wonderful people.

P.S. Let's all take a moment and acknowledge that my first picture post of 2017 is NOT of food.

Is anyone still around on here?!

We Were Angels
This is slowly becoming my favorite song (only second to Dan Dan Korkoro Hikareteku). It's been creeping up like this since the Spring.

Seriously...I believe in a lot of this...and I really do love all of the people in my life.

I haven't felt so happy in forever...and just forgot about how I felt back in the spring/early summer...I was just filled with so much love...and now it's finally flooding back

To a brighter future!

3D Gaming
I just tried 3D gaming in Assassin's Creed 3. I don't recommend this. The frame rate was too jittery and the resolution drop on it looked like ass.

I'll wait for next gen o reserve it for PC gaming.

I'll update later with how Sonic Generations on PC looks in 3D.

Persona 4 Golden Completed
This game was a masterpiece. I enjoyed this far more than Persona 3 FES.

Plus, the true end for Golden was just a really great happy ending.

I felt a real emotional connection with all of the characters in this game, something I feel is very powerful and hard to do with a lot of stories. Plus, this story makes you feel stupid not once, not twice, but three times.

It's amazing.

The music in this game was fantastic too. I'm listening to it right now :)

Everyone should play this game. It's definitely a must have if you own a Vita.

Also, I love the image below.

Don't look since it's a potential spoilerCollapse )

Now that I have my life back, I have other things to play :)

I also picked up the Anime on bluray from Rightstuf since it's cheapest there. I can't wait to get it in the mail. I read reviews and they said that it's a pretty faithful adaptation.

Anybody have thoughts on the anime?

Persona 4 Solid Gold Edition
Picture HeavyCollapse )

I'm so pumped to start playing. I took pictures since I knew a few of you would appreciate it (plus I like taking pictures of my stuff haha). Also, I'm lazy and won't flip the two of my "before" phones lol

I got one for collecting and another for using :)

I ended up removing the skin. It covers the screen and I just don't like screen protectors since they A.) don't do that much and B.) just distort the image a bit. I went through this with my Droid X. I just don't like them. If it didn't cover the screen...that thing would so be on my vita. I may just take an exact-o knife to it...in fact that's a really good idea. Future endeavors!

By future, I mean tomorrow at some point haha. I know my uncle has an exact-o knife somewhere.

Also, I finished ZHP. That is my all new favorite game of all time. It's amazing.

Everyone should play that game.

New Favorite Game
ZHP: Unlosing Ranger vs. DarkDeath EvilMan is my new favorite game of all time. Take a hike, CHRONO TRIGGER

I've never watched it. I just watched an episode on crackle while i'm cleaning my living space...it's pretty sweet.

I'll have to keep watching it ;)
