Long Live The King, part 8

Destiny, part 9

This will probably be the last entry about Destiny that I’ll title ‘Long Live The King’ since The Rise of Iron is due out in a few days (finally!) so I’ll continue writing about Destiny with the title The Rise of Iron (unless I can think of something better)

The last couple months have been busy in the Destiny universe to say the least.  The Year Two Moments of Triumph were finally revealed and I called it on those damn Calcified Fragments.  At the time of this writing, I finally have them all minus the one from the Golgoroth Challenge.  I didn’t think it was going to be as difficult getting it as it is.  I feel pretty foolish after falsely thinking that everyone in the team only had to hold his gaze once before killing him;  it turns out that everyone in the team has to hold his gaze every round.  Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.  Activate bear rage mode!  Maybe we will be able to get the fragment later on.

There was a person on my friends list that had never once messaged me or asked to play with me until the Triumph list was revealed.  But of course once he found out that my friends and I couldn’t help him as quickly as he wanted, he unfriended us all.  That experience taught me to purge my friends list of people that have never talked to me, so that’s what I did this morning before bed.

Also at the time of this writing, my team is trying to get a King’s Fall Hard Mode clear so we can tick that off the list of accomplishments.  Hopefully we’ll be able to accomplish that over the next few days.

Private Crucible matches have been added to the game.  I was hoping with their addition that completing those stupid Crucible quests would finally be attainable.  Nope.  Nothing that we did in our matches counted toward any of the quests we had.  So, yeah, I still hate the Crucible.  The only thing that I will be using this feature for is to farm for the new ghosts that have been added to the game.  Other than that, I probably won’t bother with it again.

Over the last couple weeks (and with a lot of luck) I’ve managed to get all 3 of my characters to light level 332.  Considering the current cap is 335, I don’t think I did too bad.  But once Tuesday finally arrives, it will be onward and upward to a new Light Level and new adventures on my quest to become an Iron Lord!


Relationships, part 11

I will be 37 in 15 days.  Honestly, I don’t know how I feel about that.  I haven’t really celebrated my birthday with any enthusiasm in years.  I don’t have anyone special to spend it with, so I just feel like it’s any other day.  But I do tend to get away with whatever I want on my birthday, so I suppose that’s a plus.

Marshal and I are still talking.  I up and asked him to take me with him when he leaves after his college year is over.  I was half joking, half serious.  I think it would do me some good to get out of here, either for a break or permanently.  Because of him, I’m still exercising in my off time.  I bought a weight bench and I’ve started making meals for the entire week.  This week’s meals are all chicken and rice with either broccoli or asparagus, plus a side salad.  So far, I’m liking making my meals this way.  When I’m tired from work I can come home and just heat up one of them and I’m done.  I haven’t had any sodas in days and no junk food.  I’m trying real hard to lose weight and get in shape this time, and I’m not going to quit no matter what.  I can still see he and I being partners or husbands or whatever you want to call it.  Maybe he’s good for me and I just don’t know it yet.  Maybe he’s good for me and Gerry is all wrong for me.

Gerry and I haven’t gotten to talk much lately because of work schedules and the fact that I don’t really want to play Neverwinter at the moment.  I have this irrational fear that we’re going to meet (if I can ever get my damn passport application submitted) and he’s just not going to like me as much as I like him or he’s just gonna want to fuck me and be done with me or someone that’s important to him (like friends or family) is not going to like me and then he’s not going to like me.  I really need to stop overthinking the whole thing and just meet him.  Granted, it won’t be the end of civilization if he doesn’t like me or want to be with me, it will just be the end of me.  I really don’t know how I’d feel if he didn’t want me.  I keep having these recurring thoughts/daydreams of meeting him and it just turning into a disaster.  I really would like to marry him, but I’m so afraid
