FPS games

Don’t want to study bio, so I’m going to talk about some FPS games that I’ve played.

Quake 3

This isn’t my screenshot. I played this like 10 years ago. It was one of the few games I could play on the computer (we had a mac). I only played the offline version (with the bots), but it was still fun. This laser gun in the picture was my favourite.

Gunz

Again not my screenshot. I played this ages ago. I think 2 computers ago. I believe my character name was iki0o. Its not really a FPS, more like a third person shooter, but close enough. And in this game you can do cool stunts like run up walls and dash and do rolls/tumbles and slash walls and “butterfly” (changing from sword -> gun & dashing around really fast) other cool stuff. I remember mashing the wasd buttons. It was fun.

Modern Warfare 2

Again not my screenshot. I played this around 2 years ago. But I didn’t have an account so I only played the campaign, but I did try the online multiplayer once or twice on my friend’s computer. I also played the Modern Warfare 1 and 3 after this. Oh I have played the COD4 multiplayer through LAN a few times. The MW games have really good graphics, and whenever I play my computer always heats up. I’m not really a heavy gamer, or else I would have gotten a gaming computer, but I don’t really revolve my life around gaming so I’m fine with it.

Other FPSs I can think of that I’ve tried are Counter Strike and House of the Dead. I played those on LAN too.  Awesome LAN shops in Hong Kong 😀 Can’t say the same for Canada..

FPS games aren’t really for me because I have slow reaction and bad hand-eye coordination and they are more intense. I did like playing Gunz though, because it has cool stunts 😀 But like I said, I’m not really a heavy gamer. I prefer watching tv shows and movies 😛

Pretty lipsticks

Feeling girly today ~ (and didn’t want to study)

Clinique butter shine – 437 Pink-a-boo 

This is my favourite lipstick 🙂 It is very sheer so doesn’t look too crazy. The colour is pink/peach with a bit of gold shimmers. It looks really nice and natural and the tube looks like a silver bamboo stick.

I got this with my mum a few months ago in Hong Kong. I was looking for a new lipstick in SASA but she was like omg, don’t use these cheap products, it goes on your lip and you might eat some. And she brought me to the department store brands, and I picked this one out 🙂

Revlon lip butter – 080 Strawberry Shortcake

I got this very recently (its a new product) and it was talked about a lot in the online makeup world. It’s like some new invention. Before this there were tinted lip balms that didn’t have much colour, but this is supposed to be as hydrating as a lip balm but also have enough colour to act as a lip stick.

I bought this online because supposedly this wasn’t coming out in Canada until January, and I saw it and I wanted it. The colour is a very cute & girly pink. I’m not too used to it yet but getting there. The tube is made of plastic.

Personally, I prefer the Clinique one over the Revlon. The colour is nicer on me and I like the texture more. The revlon one has this creamy feeling that feels kind of weird and sticky. Maybe thats the point.. I don’t know.

Bio – CHE353

I just realized how easily I could fail Bio. I have pages and pages of writing, but half of the things I wrote in my notebook I have no idea what it means. I thoroughly regret taking this course. I blame the prof.

RPG games

Before L.O.L I played a few RPG games. My IGN for both games was Kandie.

Conquer

This was like ages and ages ago. I only found one screenshot. I was a fire mage thing. I was like level 87 I think? I got bored of it so I stopped. I remember not many of my friends played this so I got bored quickly. I started because my brother was playing it, but we couldn’t play it at the same time because we only had one computer. And he spent most of his time playing DotA. Infact, he still does.

Ragnarok Online

This was one of the few screenshots I found. I had a lot of fun on RO. I remember coming home everyday to play. It was much more fun because I had friends to play with. But it also ate up a lot of my time. We did the most random things. In this screenshot we made a lvl99 poring, by repeatedly letting it kill us. Porings are like the lowest level monster in the entire game, so I think it was an accomplishment.

This was my main character. I was a high priest. I met a bunch of great people. And the headgears! Me and my friends were kind of obsessed with the head gears. We would do all these crazy quests to get all the different ones. My favourite is definitely the ribbons. I kind of miss the times in RO. But I know even if I start playing again now, it won’t be the same without my awesome friends.

RPGS are a lot of fun, especially with the right bunch of people to play with. I don’t play them anymore because they require a commitment, and I don’t really want to ruin my school grades because of games. League of Legends is perfect because games are around 45minutes long and after that you can quit and do something else. I don’t think I’ll go back to RPGs unless I seriously have a tonne of free time.

 

Gilly Hicks Panties

Got these in the mail today! I ordered them during the thanksgiving sale in November.

With the discount they were only $3.06 each, but after shipping and taxes they came to a total of around $25. Which is still a good price I think.

I got them in size small and in five of my favourite colours. The quality seems really nice. I love the lace. I haven’t tried them on yet but I can’t wait. Christa is definitely my favourite. It has an appropriate amount of lace and looks super cute. And my favourite colour is the dark maroon red one. It’s not boring black but not too bright either.

One thing I didn’t like was the tags which were sewn onto the back. I cut them off but theres still a little part that I couldn’t remove because it was sewn on. I know that it will be cutting into my skin when I wear it. I really hate tags against my skin. When I get a chance I will try to remove the stitching.

League of Legends

[Left to right] – Annie, Akali, Morgana, Shyvana

I’ve been playing League of Legends on and off since about the start of 2011. My favourite characters are shown in the picture above. They are all female characters because I’m a tad sexist and I only want to play girls since I’m a girl 😛

Annie

The girl-bear-child. Annie was my first character in L.O.L., and she is my most dependable character. If I know I’m playing against good players and I don’t want to embarrass myself too much, I will almost always choose Annie. She has great offensive spells, very powerful, and even a stun which is tremendously useful. When initiating a one-on-one, I try to make sure that their health is low enough that I can kill them in one shot (three spells), because once I spam all the spells I can’t do anything and once the enemy attacks theres almost no chance of survival. Favourite part: the bear called Tibbers that she can summon.

Akali

The girl ninja. Akali is just super cool and I just want to hear those ching-ching sounds when fighting. I’m not an expert at her yet, but she is really good at chasing down enemies. And I love how she runs with her arms trailing behind her, like in animes 😛

Morgana

Evil half naked devil lady. Morgana is cool too, she has that cool cage thing and a cool shield that she can cast, and I normally do ok with her. But I feel that Morgana is more of a team player, cant do much on her own but useful in a team. Her offensive spell isn’t too powerful, so its challenging to kill enemies without a team. I might be wrong. I haven’t played her for a while because I don’t like having to aim my spells.

Shyvana

Fire dragon lady. How can anyone not like this fire lady that turns into this massive dragon that breathes fire and burns the ground around it. I bought this without having tried her out, and she turns out to be ok. I don’t think shes massively powerful or anything, just a bunch of offensive spells. And lots of fire.

I really haven’t played League of Legends for a while now. I told myself to quit it for a few weeks to give myself some time to study for finals. And look how that worked out. I have come to the conclusion that if I can’t do one thing to waste my time, I’ll find something else. It comes down to the fact that I’m talented at wasting time.

Spyker Headphones

TP-360B Stereo Headset with Microphone Review

I got these headphones over two years ago, and I have been using them at home when I don’t want to disturb other people or when I’m watching a movie on my bed. My computer is usually plugged into external speakers, and I really don’t find the quality of the internal speakers satisfying, so whenever I’m not using the external speakers, I’ll be using these.

The quality of the sound is surprisingly good, considering the price I bought it at. The bass is sufficient and up to my standards, and I am a person who loves bass. The price was equivalent to around $20USD if I remember correctly. It is still working perfectly fine, and I have no complaints about the quality of the headphones. It has a volume control which I love.

Unfortunately, my laptop only has only a earphone connector (no mic). Because these headphones use a separate jack for the mic, I can’t use it (as you can see from the un-removed cap on the red jack). Not that I need it because my laptop has an inbuilt mic. Another thing is the headphones don’t look cool enough to use outside my home, mainly because of the aesthetics and the mic thing that sticks out. I normally just rotate it so it sticks up and out of my way, like in the picture.

In conclusion:

I’d recommend it to anyone looking for decent headphones for casual use at home. It has served me well throughout these past years. I wasn’t willing to spend a few hundred dollars on the high end headphones since I’ll only be using them at home, so I’m happy I ended up with this.
