Looking for a job. Which I won't ever get at this rate. They all want 1-2 years experience. How am I supposed to get experience when no one will hire me?

I was going to try out APB until release date, but that game is so broken its not worth spending any amount of money to play.

Heck... I wouldnt play even if they tried to pay me.

So, now, I'm just kinda surfing forums, posting more and just being a bum online when im not working

Oh, I already have all the expert ghosts unlocked. The kart I need to unlock comes from beating all the 150CC retro tracks with a one star or better rating. I might just have my wife do it, because I absolutely detest using manual on any Mario Kart game. I always go automatic.

Trying to build a computer kept me busy for awhile, but not that it's done I have nothing to play with it. Now I'm trying to stop myself from getting back into City of Heroes. Going Rogue looks sooo cool, but I don't wanna get into an mmo I know I'm only going to play for two months.

Well I went back to play a little STO, and I'm finding it pretty boring. I see they changed some of the space combat a tad. They added a mini-game for using your ship and hand held sensors. I really didn't see any changes to ground combat to the point that my away team is still invincible. I might just break down and get FFXI from FP or Steam. <sigh>

Replaying stuff, or RPGs I just haven't gotten around to yet. I'm good for games for proabably another week or so...then it's time to just suck it up and wait the last couple of weeks til the 22nd.

Work and watching my 1 year old.

But when I get the chance I'm trying to complete things on this brief list:

-Finish Darksiders (AWSOME game!)
-Finish God of War 2 so I can go play the 3rd installment
-Get my levels in FF5 GBA high enough for all the extra dungeons
-Finish the Mark Twain novels I never got around to so I can round out the collection
-Assassians Creed 2
-Finally read "The Divine Comedy"
-Once I upgrade my PC for XIV I plan to give Dragon Age and Fallout 3 a try maybe as well.

Of course there are other games I play and things I want to do. But that's the main to-play list. I definitely won't finish that list before the 22nd of sept either. But that's ok, even if I get my list shorter that's cool.

I'm so excited for FFXIV. XI was such a great game.

I've got a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach when I think about what it might mean.

RL is keeping me real busy. Working the 3rd shift at full time job. Expecting a baby boy in November, so for the most part buying lots of baby stuff. Also remodeling the house.
As for entertainment:
-Catching up on current and old shows - Boondocks, Top Gear, IT crowd, Entourage, also Naruto Shippuden (Naruto v. Pain was the ****)
-Finishing all the marks for FFXIII, up to 36 (Game is so boring I can only do like 2-3 each time I turn it on. /sigh)

Didn't watch the vid, but I'm guessing it's the same horned kid that's been talked about before. Word on the street is that he's some kind of elemental incarnate, an NPC in the game.

The obvious answer is he is scratch incarnate... kidding aside I haven't the faintest clue what he could be.

I almost purchased the FFXI off of FP a few hours ago. Just before I was about to add it to the shopping cart, I thinking was it even possible to earn a little gil like I used to back in the day? I mean since the server population has matured over the years, just how many crafters really need the low level stuff that I use to sell on the AH? Are there LinkShells looking for fresh new players?
