Long time, no update.

It's been a long time since I updated, so here goes.

World of Warcraft

Yeah I'm still addicted to this game, but then so are 5 million other people across the world, so that's just the way it is I guess. If you don't understand much about WoW or MMORPGs as a whole, then the following will probably be confusing and not worth reading.

I got myself into an end-game PvE raiding guild (level 60 only) at last, and not just any guild, the BEST Horde guild on the Draenor EU server. Finally gone to and completed Molten Core and Blackwing Lair (40 man raid instances) and it's so much fun. I've also done a bit of AQ 20 and 40, the new instances, AQ 40 being a great new challenge for us. We use Teamspeak so we can actually talk to each other instead of just writing instructions and info in-game, it really brings a whole new side to the game being able to hear the guys you've been sharing the server with for so long. We've had a bit of a rough patch recently, with people leaving the guild (and the game altogether) but things are calming down again now and it's back to business as usual.

Here's a picture of us after we killed Chromaggus, the 2nd to last boss in Blackwing Lair: http://www.auvy23.dsl.pipex.com/screens/pixui.jpg

Real Life

Things are still going slow and steady, I'm still in the same part-time job, earning the same money, and buying the same old upgrades for my computer. Just recently bought a Soundblaster Audigy 7.1 Surround Sound card, I'm still using the same old 2.1 speakers (will get 5.1 next month) but I did get myself a Speedlink Medusa 5.1 headset which is a lot of fun to use. Next month I'm going to buy myself a 2GB dual channel DDR kit to increase my PC's performance a little.

My Dad got himself a new car, a Rover 75. I've driven it a little, it's so hard getting used to petrol after using diesel for so long, the clutch is a lot more responsive than the slow and sluggish Mondeo's. The license plate of the car spells out the name of a popular Shadow Skill character, which brings a smile to my face every time I see it. My family has gone to Scotland for Easter so I'm here alone with just my brother for a few days, speaking of which, it's his birthday today as well, he's 22 years old now. It was my birthday last week, I'm now 24 years old.

That's all for now, until next time.

Flu Panchu   
05:06am 27/11/2005
mood: cold
Had my flu vaccination the other day, was ok at first, but then after an hour it started hurting like hell, and it has been for about 4 days now. In other medical related news, I burnt my hand on the cooker lol, really nasty. >_<

Been listening to a lot of Happy Hardcore lately, the old stuff, makes a change from my usual music tastes but it's all good. Fave DJ at the mo is Vibes. Still listening to heavy metal, and a bit of punk, especially listening to my uncle's punk band (to imagine what my uncle's band sounds like, just imagine what a bunch of drunken Glasweigans screaming down a microphone sounds like.)

Christmas is coming up, and I've got no money, no idea what I'm going to do really, got bills to pay etc, prolly gonna have to sell a kidney or something.

It's so funny how some things can change, yet others remain exactly the same. I'm still the same old me, finding my new obsessions to keep me occupied, to keep my mind off things that trouble me, still wasting my so called life on stuff that I know isn't really important, or will actually get me anywhere. It seems that everyone is moving away and onto other things now, the Internet is forever changing with the people that use it, or decide to leave it, so I guess it's to be expected. I still have trouble converting my thoughts into text.

Work is getting me down lately (hasn't it always?) No-one respects me there, not my co-staff, nor the customers, I'm just a tool to be exploited, and in some cases, ridiculed. I try not to let it get me down, I've been through all this before, so many times before, but it never gets any easier. People instantly assume, that because of the way I look, or the way I act (I'm a very quiet person that doesn't take anything seriously) that I'm some kind of dolt, stupid and unwilling to put effort into anything. I wish I could show those people exactly how smart I am, because I am intelligent, I know I am, most of my friends don't though, meh. Sucks to be me I guess, same old story.

So what have I been doing with myself these last few months? I'll tell you, wasting my life away on a bloody addictive computer game. That's all, pathetic eh. I still do other stuff, like work, going out occasionally to the pub or whatever, watching movies and anime, and listening to music, but nothing that's going to make an interesting journal entry anytime soon.

I'll sign off for tonight, this is where I'd usually say I'll update this thing more often from now on, but I probably won't.

Pixy Update.   
04:10am 24/08/2005
mood: calm
Since the WoW server has gone down for maintenance, I might as well update this thing eh?

Things are going ok I guess, still playing WoW constantly, still keeping up with the latest Bleach and Naruto, still drinking, smoking, and being merry. Should be getting paid a fair bit at the end of the month, I've worked a lot of extra hours recently, so I'm still working hard despite my computer game wh0rage of late. Seen many weird and wonderful movies over the last month or so too, this machine is a great all-round entertainment system.

Hoping to get a new graphics card for my computer at the end of the month, something that will allow me to have 2 LCD monitors connected from one machine. I want to get a new LCD monitor to accompany my current one next month.

That's all for now, goodnight.

It would seem that 4chan hacked Penny Arcade tonight, the picture that was put up there was hilarious to say the least.

I would post it here, but it would offend many. :D

Interesting Day.   
05:29am 12/07/2005
mood: amused
It started off with me heading to The Sepulcher to speak to this guy I know, who had a little job for me. After a quick chat, he then sent me off to Fenris Isle to take care of some guy that was giving him trouble. Little did I know, this would be practically impossible to do on my own... I called up 3 friends of mine, and we all met up at the lake in Silverpine Forest, then decided to head on out to the island to take on this guy and his cronies. We were in and out of there like the wind, leaving a multitude of corpses in our wake.

Straight after that we headed out to Shadowfang Keep, as my friends had helped me out in a bind, it was my turn to repay the favour I guess. This was hard, there were hundreds of guards everywhere, and after an altercation with a group of bastards using silencing powers, we all perished right there and then. Entering the other world is a strange sensation, but not altogether bad, we were still altogether, but without our physical bodies. We made our way, as spirits, back to Shadowfang to finish what we started, and eventually we did rape that place of all it's worth.

After all this we opened a portal to head back to safety, Orgrimmar to be precise. Once there, it was time to organise and sell our bounty from the 2 previous occasions. I made an absolute killing I must say. :) We parted at this point too, I had to go back to Undercity to speak to a few other associates of mine, before heading back out to The Sepulcher, to bring the head of the guy we killed on Fenris Isle to that guy I know, as proof of his death, of course.

Later on I met up with a strange fellow who wanted me to join him on a little quest, and as I had nothing better to do at the time, I accepted. We went to a very strange place in the mountains, I forget it's name, but it was totally infested with these enourmous spiders. We had to bring the fang of the mother spider to this guy in a nearby village, god knows what he had against the spider, but the rewards were great so we weren't complaining. We died a couple of times trying to kill this thing on our own, each time having to run back to where we died, and resurrect our corpses. We decided to enlist a nearby person into this little mission, it turns out he was a friend of the strange fellow I was accompanying. With all three of us striking away at this beast of a spider, we finally killed it, we then took the fang back to the village and received our rewards. I got a crystal rod, and my accomplice got a sword of some sort.

All in all, not a bad day, got quite a lot done. I'm heading back to Orgrimmar again tomorrow, to check on the auctions I set up for some of my items, should be fun.

Anyways, tired now, goodnight.
So bloody hot today.

mood: busy
I need to tan my skinhead anyway, my head was hilariously pale after the initial shaving. I just hope it isn't too hot at work today, or there may be a total electricity meltdown like last time.

So what do I have planned for this week? Not a lot really. I have an appoinment to see the doctor on Thursday, I may go out on Tuesday night with Jon if I can scrape the cash together, I also need to ring Mikhail, I might pop round his house too.

Why so much concern from overseas friends about the recent bombings? It's not like everyone in England lives in London. Oh well, at least they care, that's a good thing I suppose. I haven't really given much thought to the bombings, maybe it just hasn't sunk-in yet, or maybe I've seen this sort of thing happen so many times now I just don't care anymore? Time will tell.

Work calls me, seeya.

It's only been a week since my last update, although it seems like a lot more time has passed. This new Semagic is quite nice, some interesting new features to play with.

I was really depressed a week ago, but I'm a bit better now. I've been to see the doctor and the diabetic nurse recently, just trying to sort myself out. I've had to cut out caffeine, because that's what was giving me these strange heartbeats. I have another appointment to see the doctor next Thursday, I'm going to ask him if I can be put in for an emergency retinopathy scan at the hospital, as my eyes are pretty bad at the moment. I'm also going to ask for some anti-depressants, as I'm just inconsolable right now.

I applied for a job as a website administrator for a company in Lincoln a few days back, I haven't heard back from them yet though, I'm keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

One thing that has made me feel better recently is getting/playing World Of Warcraft. Such a fun game, and the people on the server I play on are all quite nice, especially those in my guild "The Mockers" who are the unofficial OcUK WoW guild.

I have to go to bed now, work tomorrow. Goodnight.

mood: sad
This time last week, things were so very different for me. It was as if I was living with this blanket over my head, safe in my ignorance to what was going on around me, and to my own personal situation. Now that blanket has been removed, and I can now see the world around me, and it is such a cold and harsh place. I wish I could feel like I felt before, yes, I was living in a dream-like state, but at least I was reasonably content in that state, and not constantly upset as I am now.

I've come to realise just how pathetic I really am, as everyone else gets on with their lives, their careers. I'm still here on my own, working in the same shitty part-time job and living with my parents, it's just wrong. I'm a major disappointment to all those around me, and I have absolutley nothing to live for. I've never had any direction, it's almost as if I wasn't meant to be in this world, I just cannot function properly here. There is something seriously wrong with me.

I'm off to work now, this is going to be so hard. Bye.

  Feeling so very fucked up right now, and I can't explain why, I just.. do.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm still worrying about my eyesight after all these years? Maybe it's the fact that my life is going nowhere..?

I'm feeling really depressed right now, and I seriously mean that, it isn't just sadness, this is depression, almost 100% pure misery, and nothing I do makes me feel any better.
Giving up smoking. -_-

Bleach stuff.

Made my first ever post on soul_society today. I've been a member for a while now, but just to read the stuff that gets posted, it's definitley the best Bleach community out there for the latest Bleach news and stuff. The reason I posted was to share a Bleach cellphone theme that I made tonight, and you can see that theme by clicking the link below:


If you want to download it and use it (if you have a Sony Ericsson T610) then click on the link below:


That's all for now, work tomorrow.

Lazy Days

I kicked off in another one of those fox hunting debates on the OcUK Forums again. -_- I really should stop posting when I've been drinking, I get so worked up. Needless to say, my views were attacked and called "stupid" without any decent reason to back up why they thought they were so, as to be expected. I was also personally attacked by one guy, I'm hoping he'll get a warning from the moderators soon.

More work on the sites recently, little things mostly, I still have so much to do, especially on the Bleach site.

I've been going out a lot recently, mainly because I just can't stand sitting here in the heat, I need to move around and do stuff when it gets hot. I find it so hard to concentrate when I feel hot, and when there's moths flying around my monitor and sweat running down my forehead. I guess getting out more is good for me anyway.

Applied for a job as an assistant pharmacist today, I don't think I stand a chance really, but at least I tried eh.

Goodnight all.
Went on MSN for the first time in ages tonight, never going on it again.

mood: annoyed
I don't know why I bloody bother, I really don't.

Someone had added me to MSN, someone that sort of knew me on another forum, and knew that I had the BGC OSTs in high Q - all of them. There was no "Hi, how are you?" oh no, just straight down to business "If I set up an FTP account for you, can you send me the BGC OSTs?" I reluctantly accepted, even though I knew this would be a 4-hour process. I sent one OST through, he downloaded it straight away afterwards, and then he goes "I only wanted the instrumentals."

This guy wanted me to filter through all 8 OSTs and pick out only the instrumentals, because he sorted them out in vocal-instrumental order, then he wanted me to zip them, no sodding way. When I told him that it would take too long to sort out the vocals ond instrumentals, he had the nerve to tell me that I don't know my BGC OSTs. Blocked.

The cheek of it, you go out of your way to help out, and get nothing but shit in return.

That's it now, no more MSN for me. If you want to talk to me in real-time, get on IRC from now on.
