I play video games, watch Star Trek, listen to British punk and drink Guinness.

i have been on the job hunt for the past two months, a call back here and there, the occasional interview, though nothing has come through. soon as i get a source of income i plan to purchase music equipment to play and record with: synthesizers, fl studio, macbook as a workstation, so much more.
i have been eying this guitar as well, actually a couple. at my guitar center, which for a uk equivalent i would say pmt, i have interest in acquiring either a gibson es-335 semi hollowbody, or a gibson sg. both have great sounds for me and i would love to not only play them but add them to a guitar collection i wish to have.
i do not game as often as i used to. most games i play today i play on my 3ds. been slowly making my way through pokémon x, and i mean to get my hands on the latest zelda, a link between worlds. there are many games i would like to have that are currently out, if funds were not lacking.
things sound good on your end! good to see you with income and some nice purchases. i will admit to drifting away during a movie and not remembering nor appreciating it. the idea of writing reviews seems like a good idea to focus on the movie.
the last of us was a great game, though i was torn at the ending. as i played it i was thinking i would have done the opposite, for the greater good. in his shoes though, i prolly would have felt what he was going through and done the same. arkham origins is a good one, but the best one is definitely symphony of the night. score on that one!
i have little to no knowledge of programming, so that lingo usually flies over my head. it is a valuable skill indeed, so do what you can with it.
most of my manga reading is off my phone, though i would like to start collecting physical volumes to set on a bookshelf or two, particularly the death note series which i loved. the anime was great too.
s'bout it. cheers!
Job hunting isn't fun, so hopefully you find something soon. I didn't think I was ever going to find a job then got offered three. I imagine it'd be really easy to just blow all your income as soon as you get it, which is something I'm trying to avoid.
I enjoyed The Last of Us but I had mixed feelings about the ending. No so much because I particularly liked/disliked the ending, it just felt a bit too abrupt to me. It didn't really feel like the game was due to end when it did, or the ending came about too quickly. I'm not sure but something just felt a little off to me.
As for reading manga on your phone, I'm not sure that's something I could do. I've tried reading some Marvel comics on my phone before but it just wasn't the same. I'd prefer to have a physical book any day. Downside is they're not exactly cheap and if you get enough of them they start to take up a fair bit of physical space.
Started watching Netflix's House of Cards. It's good!
I was considering watching that back when I was using the free Netflix trial. Maybe I'll need to sign up for Netflix again.
