To-Do 3/10/17

Don’t mind me; I’m just updating my list for the week-ish. I finished A King’s Tale, and started Stolen Throne, so those two items are checked off from my last list. What’s left:

  • Continue hunts & side quests in FFXV, then do those other two Imperial bases and start streaming again.
  • Continue Stolen Throne and post more about that. Doing three chapters on that first post worked well, so while I’m still not setting a firm “gotta do this much before a post, no more no less” (cause if I do that, it’s not going to flow) at the same time three chapters is a nice, manageable amount so that may end up being the average.
  • Start I Am Setsuna.
  • Finish the episodes of Fairy Tail I currently have, which is the Blu-Ray set Collection 6. Which, unfortunately… is the Key to the Starry Sky arc. I’m taking it better than Brian is, because I know spoilers that put some of it into context, but that doesn’t mean the arc hasn’t started slower and more awkward than the Oracion Seis did.
    • Order Collection 7 to follow this one up with. It’ll still have some of KttSS, but it also starts the Grand Magic Games!
  • Tinker with OBS.
    • Alternately, win obnoxious amounts of money and go out the easy way & buy the Ripsaw or something. Especially since I could use that on non-PS4 consoles, too. Oh, and if I did win obnoxious amounts of money, put a significant portion of it to good use. That’s one of those things that should be obvious, but who knows.
  • Catch up on: Flash (1st priority), Voltron season 2 (2nd priority), and Supergirl (3rd priority).
    • As for Arrow and Legends, I like them, but they aren’t the same as Flash and Supergirl.

Um… That’ll do for now. I’ll only get through maybe half of this in the next week-ish, but I’m working my way through. It’s not like I want to have nothing to do. I think I’ll start with Fairy Tail and reading, then see how far I can get from there.

[Fandom & Personal Post] Games, Medical, Housekeeping, BIRTHDAY!

  1. Games: I’m still fully in Final Fantasy XV hell, and I don’t see myself coming out of it any time soon. The Chocobo-Moogle Carnival/January Update came out this past week, and while I do have some pictures of #PrinceSpaceMan‘s adventure through the festival I’m still working on how I want pictures formatted here. I need to find out if I can link external images into a “gallery” format post or if I have to host them locally. If it has to be local, well, we’ve got some problems. More on that later, though.
    1. I’ve also gotten kind of hooked on Final Fantasy Record Keeper, something I don’t know how I haven’t played before now. I’ve even downloaded it multiple times in the past, and when I never got around to it I would uninstall it again. It’s so much fun though, and so cute.
    2. Twitch streaming of FFXV will pick up again when I get my PrinceSpaceMan NG+ caught up to where the original save’s streams left off. I think that’s chapter 6, but I’m not sure. I need to dig through my previous clips and figure out where I was. It won’t have the fun of first-time reactions that the original save had, but at least I won’t be wandering quite so blindly.
  2. Medical: If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that this week especially I’ve been going through some of the worst migraines I’ve had in years. They’re getting in the way of a lot of things right now, and I’m trying to push through them, but damn it’s been hard. They’ve been cutting into everything, both Serious Life Stuff and Fun Relaxing Stuff. So when I have the energy, I might be whining about that a bit. If I’m not whining, I’m either sleeping or feel well enough to watch movies or play games or something.
  3. Housekeeping: Like I said above, I’m still working out some kinks of how I want to make gallery posts here. Storage on my free account is… lacking… but I’m not in a spot to upgrade that right now. So, if gallery images have to be hosted locally? That’s a problem. But if I can link them from anywhere else we’ll definitely be in business. Maybe it’ll let me host thumbnails and link those to full sized images off-site? That might be a happy medium, if necessary and allowed.
  4. BIRTHDAY! The countdown is less than a week now, and my manager gave me a 4-day weekend for it. (I was only asking for the day itself because the month-end/month-start transition is so busy, but she says she can cover it.) They aren’t free days off, of course, but my allowed time off can afford it, even with being sick this week. More importantly than birthday, though, is Cake Day. Yeah, I capitalized that. It’s an event. I told Brian to tell anyone he invites over for that the cake is all I’m worried about, and to just bring games to play and not other stuff. I have enough things that I can’t keep up with as it is.
    1. There is one birthday thing I’m getting Brian to get me: the next Fairy Tail Blu-Ray collection. It’s one of the few anime that I can’t watch in Japanese, and all of the streams for the show are only subbed now. So that means buying it, and buying it as collections instead of “Parts” gets me more episodes at a time, but I have to wait longer for them. Even though the eps are already dubbed. Funimation is dumb sometimes. (For the record the next set, the one that came out last week, should be the last episode of Tenrou Island and the start of the Grand Magic Games. After that, I have to find an excuse in March for the collection after that. It shouldn’t be too hard to justify as a single splurge that month, especially since Brian isn’t caught up to as much as I am from the manga leaks.)
    2. I’m still trying to figure out what to ask for for my cake, though. I normally have this decided months in advance for something mildly ridiculous, but this month all I can really think of are stars or the color purple. A far cry from the rainbow dinosaur cake from a few years ago, but I’m cutting it really close time-wise so I’ll take what I can get.
