Well it’s been a while since I updated, I am using facebook/twitter for smaller or whacky updates so be sure to follow me there if you really want to stay up to date. But then again lj still has enough charm for me to want to continue using it. I had this discussion with Niels about the subject once and what really stuck was the conclusion that on fb or twitter your messages can be easily lost in the massive amount of updates. Also lj-updates tend to be more serious (and I base this on absolutely nothing) and less of a whacky random thought thingy. Also this post should automatically appear on facebook and twitter anyway :D
Sooooo… what have you been doing you might ask, and if you are not I am still going to write it down. My internship at PAT is coming to an end and has been going well, I might actually have a future there as my work has been really well received so far. Just my ‘herkansingen’, ‘scriptie’ and ‘vrij project’ to go and I’ll be done with school, the end is finally showing on the horizon.
Living together with Merel is also going great, it is great to be around her more than just a few days a week, and in a couple days (6th November) we will have our 6th year anniversary.
Recreationally is going great too, I actually have been playing little to no WoW the last couple of months. Yes, shocking isn’t it. But have been indulging this game I never thought I would get into, Starcraft 2. I don’t like sci-fi but the game itself is just too well designed for me to ignore. And know I am zerging it up in the gold league in 1v1 and having fun in various team matches whenever I can find someone else online. The most epic wins seem to always involve Riftie, Ultra’s smashing an enemy base with his medevac’s healing me? Awesome! Scouting an obvious double protoss carrier/mothership maxed out army and then going mass expand corrupters/broodlords with him going Viking/battlecruiser? Pure gold :D Of course a certain Telgen deserves mention, especially after winning a 3v3 after me and Maglor left the game after being rushed. Also Sang told me he would have time to play soon, so looking forward to that as well.
There have also been some larps, most recently Omen, Moots and Doodspoor. Omen was nice, being a dwarven berserker sure turned out to be great. Thanks again J4 for the costume, couldn’t have pulled it off without you. Moots was nice too, I am pretty happy with my position in the game right now just a bit bummed out more and more friends stop going to the Vortex. But can’t really blame them, the larp has some pretty big pitfalls that aren’t really going away anytime soon.
Doodspoor I was actually trying to avoid, since I didn’t really feel like paying for another disaster that I know lovingly call Doodspoor Beta. But this event was actually pretty cool and I genuinely enjoyed it.
