Bye Bye Twenty-Twelve

It's December 31st, also known as, New Year's Eve. The last day of the year 2012. And what a wonderful year it has been, yeah? Ah c'mon, it's been good. Awesome, even! Yes? :) It has been good :D I'm gonna take a look back at some of my favourite parts.

I'm gonna start with music because we've have some memorable songs this year ^_^ I'm gonna start with the one that broke 1,000,000,000 views on Youtube. Yes, PSY's Gangnam Style. I remember the first time I heard this. A-M-A-Zing song ^_^ Of course, you're probably sick of hearing this song. But it never get's old. I do wish to one day learn the words!! What made this song even better was that I was at a pantomime recently and Twink performed this live on stage. It was epic!! Even more epic since she was dressed in the suit and everything :D


The next song I'm gonna mention is Scissor Sisters' Let's Have A Kiki. I love this song... so sooo much. Mainly because my nickname is Kiki. One of my favourites from this year! Doesn't need much explanation really.


And finally... It's Carly Rae Jepsen! Yes, Call Me Maybe. One of the anthems of 2012 ^_^ Go away if you don't agree!!



Yes, it's been a wonderful year for music :P What next? Let me see... We had the release of Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2. One of the best Pokémon games I've ever played. I've also learned the delights of League of Legends too. At the start of this year, I played a lot of Dragon Age: Origins. One of my favourites. I know it's not a 2012 game but it's one of my 2012 memories!! I've played many other games too... I just can't think of them :/ Oh!! Minecraft! Yes, I played a good bit this year. Didn't accomplish much... but I still played a good bit :D The Chickenator 5000 was fun to make :D

Music. Games. What else? Socials? Well, there was my 20th birthday which was rather memorable in that I spent it in a different country surrounded by people I'd just met.. It was a fun night to be fair. I remember Jagerbombs and an R2D2 costume... That is all. Oh... and Tequila. I went to see two concerts this year - Florence + The Machine and Lady Gaga. Both absolutely amazeballs!! Florence has an UNREAL voice on her. And one of the best live performers I've ever seen. Gaga is the same - one of the best live performers I've ever seen. That means now that the total number of Gaga concerts I've been to is 3. We made t-shirts for the occasion ^_^ I'm SOOOO artistic!

I suppose another noticable thing about 2012 is that I got my first real job. I was a kitchen porter in a pub in Georgeham. It was a good experience. Once I got to college, I became a tutor. That was also an experience.. I think I'll stay unemployed for as long as I can. Or maybe just become self employed...

Anything else happen in 2012? Let's look at my college year... I got a 1H for my 2nd year. I became a Peer Support Leader, Class Rep, Deputy SEFS Rep, LGBT Society Finance Officer, Chinese Soc Secretary and now Chinese Soc Auditor. Not TOO shabby. Oh! And yes, tutor! For 1st year Mechanics. Quite a lot to take on but sure... YOYO! (You're only young once). Screw that YOLO crap!

I'm afraid I'll have to leave it there. I'm terribly tired. I was up late last night watching Toddlers & Tiaras and I was up at 7am this morning.. *yawns*

Have a very Happy New Year everyone. And I'll see you again in 2013 ^_^ Byyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeee!!

League of Legends - Play Time!!

Hello there :D It's time for another blog post. And yes, you've guessed it. League of Legends!

First off, if you'd like to sign up to the game and play (it's free and totally awesome), you can join by clicking here. I'll run through a bit about the game if you've not heard of it. I've written about this game once before (which can be found @ League Of Legends). Since then, I've played a bit more and got the hang of the game a bit better. It's such fun ^_^

Do you like combat games? Tactical games? Even a bit of magic? League of Legends is a free online game. You download the game and play it from your laptop (or whatever gadget you have) with an internet connection. There are over 100 Champions to choose from. They let you use about 10-15 free Champions which change now and then, or you can unlock characters permanently by buying them. Personally, I love playing as Teemo. To quote myself, "Teemo is a ranged fighter who specializes in poisons. His poison darts infect the enemy and they take magic damage every second. He can also lay mushroom bomb which are pretty cool!". So pick a Champion and get practicing ^_^

I found it a tough game to get into - there's a steep learning curve, especially since you play against random people who would have experience. But don't let that deter you - you'll pick it up fast. You can set up matches with friends and add other players to your friend list. My advice would be to look up the Champions' attacks/abilities before fighting and pick your favourite. And from there, you can learn to work with them. Once you get a hang of the controls, expand your pool of Champions. So far, I've stayed playing with Teemo just because I wanna learn the best way to fight with him.

So, a little bit about the game. There are two modes to play in - Classic and Dominion. In Classic, it's just fighting 3v3 or 5v5 in Twisted Treeline or Summoners Rift respectively. You fight to destroy your enemy's Nexus. In Dominion, it's 5v5 and you fight to keep your Nexus from reaching 0 health before the enemy's Nexus (the health is falling continuosly). You have to fight your way through enemy Champions, turrets, inhibitors and minions to destroy the enemy Nexus. It's lots of fun! :D

Some Champions specialize in magic attacks, others rely on brute force physical attack. So do experiment until you find the Champions right for you. You also collect gold for kills and you can spend this in the shop during the game to buy weapons and items to help you out. Gaining experience opens up your movepool and increases your level and every level counts because even a single level can mean the difference between killing an enemy or not.

The level cap is 18, but sometimes you can win games by just getting to level 10ish. The shortest game I ever played was about 10 minutes. The 3v3 games last an average of 15-20 minutes whereas the 5v5 games can go on to be almost 45 minutes depending how good the players are.

Outside of battles, you can increase your powers through Masteries and Runes. Masteries upgrade some powers such as armour, magic penetration, health regeneration, or reduced cooldown on abilities through Mastery Points (you get one per level - I mean you're profile level, not per level you increase in battle). Runes have a similar effect but you can buy runes and combine them.

So there's a quick runthrough of the game. Do have a go, it's great fun! And it's free too :) If you want to add me, my username is elitebibi. Here's the link again if you wanna sign up >>> This. Is. The. Link.

Happy playing ^_^

Woo!! Christmas Holidays ^_^

Hey everyone!! It's been a while.. a very long while... So I'll try throw in as much as possible here :D

First off, I'm on my Christmas holidays. PRAISE THE LORD! No more college until January 7th - but we do have a few assignments to do over Christmas... Stupid lecturers :(

Over the last few weeks, most of my time has been spent in college or doing college work. Apart from that, I've been doing some society work. Which means I had little time to myself, let alone enough time to write blog posts.

I got some new t-shirts. They're AWESOME! I'm far too lazy to take a picture of them to upload so here are pictures of them from the net... I love Qwertee t-shirts so much :D They're so damn cool!

You Shall Not Pass!

Nostalgia

To continue on with the Pokémon theme - I've been playing a lot of Pokémon Black 2. It's by far my favourite game so far in terms of post-elite-four things to do. Between Join Avenue, Black City as well as numerous others things, I've just been having so much fun. Especially with online trades!! I got myself a shiny Sableye recently :D All I had to trade was a Mawile. Woo!! Shiny Pokémon :D

What else have I been up to? Oh yes! Of course - I was elected Auditor of UCC Chinese Society on Thursday. How's that for random? :) I've been on the committee since July and our Auditor resigned 2 weeks ago. So I stepped up to become the new one. The best thing is - I don't have a word of Chinese! It's quite funny :) But I'll do my best for the society, don't you worry!

10 days ago, I was at the UCC Maths Ball.
*NNNNNEEEEERRRRRDDDDD*
And it was SOOOOOOOO much fun. I had the best tie - I got it for 50p in a shop in England when I was there for the Summer. It had maths things on it ^_^

Fo Shizzle My Nerdizzles

Ain't it epic?? What other epic things have I done recently... I finally tucked into my strawberry flavoured chocolate that I brought home from Belgium. It's tasty! I've been making lasagne a lot lately because it's cheap and tasty. It's tasty! I watched Resident Evil: Retribution last night. Without having watched any of the previous ones. It's tasty! Speaking of tasty - I watched Aladdin the other night. Jasmine is tasty! Also, Robin Williams - what a man. Mrs. Doubtfire. Aladdin. Jumanji. Epic man!! *rant rant rant*

Games! Yes, games. I must play more over Christmas. Last year I spent 56-60 hours playing Dragon Age: Origins over the space of 4 days. Dedication! Or.. Obsession! I also must play more League of Legends. I bought Teemo recently :D YAY!!! SO MUCH LOVE!!! I ALMOST DIED OF HAPPINESS WHEN I BOUGHT HIM! SO CUTE :D *lowers voice* And finally - Bioshock. Must finish! And Dante's Inferno. That too. Plus loads more that I can't think of. Woo games!!

Huh. I've run out of things to talk about... WAIT! Christmas! Of course, how did I forget :/ Santa is coming soon!!! But I don't know what I want to get.. What should I get? Actually, there is one thing I want - a new schoolbag. My current one is not that nice.. and doesn't hold that much. Plus, I've had it for years and one strap is broken.. So a new schoolbag is in order :D And, I must buy my iPod after Christmas once the sales come in. I've been saving up for an iPod. Be so much handier than playing music off of my phone. Plus it'll have much more storage!

*stomach rumbles* I should go eat. I've been up for hours playing Pokémon and haven't even had breakfast yet. I know, I'm a mess. I've came to that conclusion weeks ago. So buh-bye!! Enjoy Christmas if I don't see you before then ^_^

Questions & Answers 1

1. Will you father my children?? I've been reading your blog for the last few months and you've really inspired me to become a better person and start my own blog (bloggy fidelma). Please accept my proposal.

Answer: Huh. Well, I would (I guess). But I don't know who you are, where you're from, or anything about you in fact. So this poses a bit of a problem if I am going to try impregnate you. What's your number and we can sort a date? ;) I really hope we have ginger kids.

I must say - THIS is why I wrote my blog. To inspire others. I'm super happy that you have been inspired by me to become a better person. The world needs better people! Once our kids are born, we can show them what amazing people we are and teach them how to spread the word. And they'll start a new religion based on our teachings. Sound good?


2. So what's your plan for after college?


Answer: My plan after college? :/ Huh. That's a toughie. Initially my plan was to get a job with an actuarial firm or something like that. But I don't know... I would really love to travel the world. But for that I need money. So I think my best option is to work for a while and save up some money so that I can travel. I'm still young - I have time ^_^


3. You're a bit of a cunt. Wait that's not a question. Why are you such a cunt?


Answer: 'Cunt' is a word that primarily describes the female genitalia. So I'm going to assume you mean vagina. What else could you be talking about??

LOL. No really. I believe being a cunt is a matter of perception. So just because you perceive me to be such doesn't make me so. Take this picture for example - Do you see an old or young woman? Just because you see it as one doesn't mean it's not the other ^_^


Old Or Young Woman?


4. Ah now, all jokes aside. Seriously, why are you such a cunt? I'm genuinely curious at this point.

Answer: Refer to my above answer. Perception, my good lad, perception.


5. CUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNT!!!

Answer: Ah now! That's not even a question!!



Yeah, so there were the questions I was asked. And those are my answers. If you would like to ask me more questions, please refer to my old blog post Quick Fire Questions to find out how ^_^

See y'all later...
