Schweizer Bundesfeier 2015

My dear Switzerland, happy birthday! I had to work this time but at the end of the day, it’s still the best to celebrate it with those closest to you. In this case, Hubby and I grilled us some steaks.

I am still trying to finish reading Re and am still hooked. I can’t remember the last time I used Colleen for coloring my drawings. This one of Kaneki didn’t turn out so bad though.

Homemade Vs. Instant Noodle Soup

image

As I am bedridden for a few days, I have resorted to working on my notebook and catching up on my anime’s while simultaneously sleeping every now and then. Since last night, all I could do was lie down and entertain myself and I really couldn’t stand it. I really need to move but I can’t as I’m supposed to keep my right leg raised. Since my current predicament renders me somewhat immobile, I am switching to eating easy to prepare foods that Hubby is able to help me with. One of which is Noodle Soup.

I like making my own noodle soup at home instead of eating the ready-to-eat instant noodles also available in the grocery. I don’t really find the preparation and cooking to be any longer and it tastes better. I could add real chicken, beef, or shrimp bits if I wanted to. I could also make it more hot, add more spice while cooking and actually taste it. Whatever vegetables like Bok Choy for example that I want to add that goes with this soup, I do.

I understand that it may not be a staple for my readers but rather it serves as rainy day or emergency food that is easy to make simply by boiling water, add it, wait, and eat. Not to mention, there are no pots to clean after and whatnot if you had been using a plastic fork.  With all that said, eat it the way you want it but this is an option that you may try at home one day.

MDC: Digital Art Using Artweaver

image

I installed Artweaver and tried using my tablet for actually drawing since I don’t need to transpose my free-hand calculations to my notebook anymore.

As you can see, they are far from perfect but I am starting to get used to this transition from paper and pencil to pen and tablet.

At least I would not have to buy the blending markers anymore since they cost so much here per pen that I really just cannot get them when I prioritize where my salary ends up.

Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns Pre-Purchase

image

I installed and started playing my pre-purchase Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns, which I bought from Softridge and admittedly I’m relieved to have gotten it since I did not really enjoy the beta test as much.

As much as I wanted to try out my character’s weapons and skill sets, I found it difficult to merely practice on the spot because of my numerous deaths and to work in groups in areas wherein you may be lucky while exploring but other than that you must go to your nearest waypoint because nobody was around to revive you and defeat all the spiders for example by themselves.

image

I am still able to play in areas with varying levels with my revenant and actually learn more what weapons I’m most likely to use or combine and just like my Guardian, it is as if I have fallen in love with the hammer once more.

image

Some missions are a bit difficult and tricky like the one in the screenshot here wherein I think all the players died but more came eventually to revive us and we managed to finish it.

image

These screenshots I took are actually from when you’ve installed the pre-purchase already and you start up the game as an introduction. I have yet to continue and learn more about my character and actually get used to playing with her. At times she seems to die too quickly in some missions but there’s more to come. Just taking it easy for now.

Pinterest Finds

Another post filled with fashion finds from Pinterest. I’ve been compiling outfits and articles onto my boards and thought I’d share a few that stand out.

Stormtrooper Twerk

After watching Clone Wars for almost a week now it’s almost inevitable that I would find such a video lurking around.

Have a nice Sunday fun day!

Thoughts from Captain Levi

It’s been a while since I last saw Shingeki no Kyojin but Levi’s advice to Eren I cannot forget. Do you remember his words?

The difference between your decision and ours is experience. But you don’t have to rely on that. Choose… Believe in yourself, or believe in the survey corps and me. I don’t know… I never have. I can believe in my own abilities or the choices of the companions I trust. But no one ever knows how it will turn out. So choose for yourself, whichever decision you will regret the least.

He was already a favorite character of mine before he said it but I find it even more empowering after he did. I look forward to not only the next season of Attack on Titan but also the upcoming movie.
