I have been sort of awol from writing in my blog for the past couple weeks.
My Gaming & Giving Back Challenge got scattered due to some rather unfortunate situations at work. I can’t wait to start participating again in my own Challenge creation!
I have recently resigned from my position at work and I couldn’t feel better about my decision. Although I am really sad to leave such wonderful families and some fantastic staff members, I couldn’t handle working there anymore. I am not going into more details in my blog, not right now anyways… but if I feel like ranting at a later date, this might be my venting plate. Hey! That rhymes 😉
On the plus, I got a NEW job on my first day of being unemployed! I am still teaching, and hopefully this environment is more professional and doesn’t rely on gossiping to pass the time. Also, I am going to attempt to write some game reviews for Nerdemic. For fun of course!
With Rock Band 3, I am currently ranked #19 in the world. I have been playing with Lowieee and Hginct14 a lot! …and of course Kari Rose (when our xbox allows us to connect) and a new friend HeyRiles. I can’t seem to get enough of this game! I have always loved Rock Band 1 and 2… and now 3!
I am ranked #1 in the world for the Vocal Battle “Alone in the Car Mixtape” by Harmonix.
If you look under “quickplay” and then “play a setlist” you will find “battles”. There are custom battles and global battles. The one that I am #1 is a global battle. Woohoo!
For the next week, I have a challenge with HeyRiles to see who gets the furthest on the Total Rock Band vocals leaderboards. After that, I will have to take over the Rock Band 3 vocal leaderboards. I am currently ranked in 300 or so. Fail. I haven’t been playing the new songs that much. I have way too many DLC (downloadable content) that I want to sing along to!
I picked up the new Sims 3 game for the xbox. Sadly I think it was a huge waste of money. It’s terrible. I can’t justify sitting there controlling a fake “me” and watch as “I” play video games, make dinner, go to the bathroom, and search for work! What on earth was I thinking before purchasing that game (AGAIN!). Sigh… sometimes I just never learn! I already had this game on the PC and never played it cause it was rubbish. I thought it might have been better
I created my very first YouTube video of my lovely Midnite Faery rocking out to Evanescence. Check it out when you have a chance. I am going to try to record and upload more videos as much as possible.
