Well....it's official. My Xbox 360 is now a paperweight. It will NOT read any discs. I have a lot of disc based games still, so even if I can download games, I'd be losing a lot of money just to re-buy games online. Now, before anyone gets onto me about how I should have just went digital in the first place, I just want to say:
1. Fuck you.
2. I still like physical merchandise, digital doesn't cut it for me when it comes to games, comics, magazines, etc. I like to actually HAVE it.

Anyways, but ya. Guess I should probably start working on getting an Xbox One now. It sucks too, cuz I was able to get a copy of Zone Of The Enders: HD Collection yesterday for $12! TWELVE! That's pretty cheap considering earlier in the year it was still like $30! *sigh* Oh well though...

YEEAAAHHHH.....so long story short. The computer I was using...the charger broke. Soooo...yeah. You can guess how that limited computer usage lol. Anyways....I have a replacement for it. So I'm now able to access the interwebs more often now. Sooo...guess I should give a run down on recent life events:

1. I have a life decision that I have made. I am going to enlist in the United States Air Force. Why Air Force? They have a lot more tech jobs that I might be interested in. Also, less chance of me being shot at by some terrorist compared to the ones that really have to go out into the field like the Army or the Marines. I am also going for active duty. I am not far along in my endeavor to enlist though. I have to gain like 10 pounds, get a lot of documents (mostly medical shit for when I had my broken leg), and yeah. Gaining weight is the hardest part for me since I have a very high metabolism. Anyways, I have a million people already telling me how I can gain weight so for love all things Batman, don't give me any tips. Not meaning to sound rude, but I've heard it all at this point lol.

2. I have a girlfriend. This time, for sure. We've been going since 9/11 (yes, September 11, 2014) so she's passed te 3 week "trial period" as I call it and we're doing pretty good. She knows of my decision to join the Air Force and supports, and me and her both express interest in trying to make our relationship work even knowing I'll be gone for an extended amount of time. She's cute, has a nice personality, big tits (which is a first for me, but she still got da booty), we have similar interests, and she totally puts up with me. Also there's sex. All in all...pretty damn good relationship. ^_^

3. I gained another year in life. Yep. I'm 22 years of age now, assuming DeviantART didn't already tell you and whatnot. For my birthday gift, a few things: some comics and book thingys from my woman, a Charizard beanie from my best friend, a fat bag of condoms and $30 gift card to the movies from my uncle (good thing too, I needed more rubbers XD ), a new faux leather jacket from my grandpa (it may be fake leather, but I don't care, I look good in it and it keeps me warm) and a 32GB iPod Touch 5th Generation from my grandmother that also counts as my X-Mas gift as well, but I am fine with that since I'm not much one for getting a lot during X-Mas anyways lol. Anyways, totes loving the new iPod, I really needed one and I already have it filled up with music within the first week XD

4. POKEMON OMEGA RUBY AND ALPHA SAPPHIRE!!!!! COMES OUT THIS WEEKEND!!!! WHOOOO!!!!! I'm excited as fuck for it. I'm picking Treecko as my starter and getting Omega Ruby version. Cant wait to get back to Hoenn :)
Also I have Super Smash Brothers for 3DS so I've been on that for a bit too, but fighting games can only take me so far before I don't play em as much anymore unless around friends lol.

5. I have a nice little surprise for you guys. I have been working, slowly...slowly working, on a piece of work that is very hard. What is it you ask? Well, I'm gonna cut to the chase, in honor of Pokemon ORAS coming out...and because I keep changing the idea every time a new Pokemon game comes out, I am developing a Pokemon fanfic. I am hoping to get the first chapter on here within the month. Assuming I don't procrastinate too hard along with developing massive writers block that I already get anyways. I have a prologue as well that I need to touch up and probably redo, and I'm trying to finish up chapter 1 as well. I'm just trying to add more to it as well as picking a decent place to leave it at before chapter 2. I'm treating this like I'm writing a book, so expect each chapter to be long and obviously more than like 3 pages. Do not know if I can post it here now that I realize how big each chapter has the potential to be, but I'll try lol. Anyways, for a little trat, I'll tell ya some premise. The main character is named after yours truly here, and while that may sound conceited, my name on here isn't real either, it's an alias. So my main character is named after my alias, but I am basing him off me in a sense because grasping his character will be easy, cuz then I just have to think "what would I do?" when I create the obstacles he'll have to overcome. Any of the other major (besides people like Gym Leaders, and whatnot, cuz they already have personality templates from other media such as the games and Pokemon Adventures manga) characters I'm basing off my friends, mostly cuz if I need their input I will ask them and they will give me some. I asked my buddy Jose things like "What starter would you pick?" and "What region would you like to live in?" just to get some backstory for the character based off of him. Friends are also great people to base characters off of. I can also use the same formula for how their character could overcome the obstacles set before them, just by asking. I like having nerd friends who are unknowingly supportive lol. :)
But yes, Devlin Black, is a fresh new Pokemon Trainer from the land of Kanto, he decides to make his first journey in the Hoenn region though. Figured with ORAS coming out, I sould use Hoenn as the region for the story. Now why does Devlin go to Hoenn while he's from Kanto? You'll learn that most likely with in chapter 1. Now does it involve any Legendary Pokemon? I'm gonna answer with yes. It pulls that whole "chosen one" mechanic because I am quite fond of that kind of story. Now, because it's ORAS, I'm gonna tell ya now...Devlin, will not be chosen by Hoenn's Weather Trio, otherwise known as Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza. There's reason for that as well, partially because I'm only using Hoenn as the setting because of ORAS, but it doesn't mean Mr. Main Character, Devlin Black will picked by those 3 big guys...he's just gonna be picked by someone (or something since they're not human lol) else. ^_^
It'll also be a little more PG-13 to R rating. Why? Because it may be the world of Pokemon, but there's gonna be some realism to it. There's gonna be blood, there's gonna be a lot of intense Pokemon battles, and there will be a fair amount of cursing. Now you can tell me "But Ash doesn't curse!!" or "But Pikachu doesn't get bloody!!!" or even "But none of that is in the games either!!" but I'm gonna tell ya...stow it. This isn't Ash's overly kid friendly anime world, or even the overtoned kid friendly with undertoned subtle adult themes in the games world. It's my world. Like I said, there's gonna be some realism. The main characters, and even minor characters will drop an F-Bomb or two at point. Maybe not often, but lets face it, the minute you step out into the world away from parents (or your grandparents) and hung out with your friends or even alone, you probably didn't hold your tongue as much from saying certain phrases you'd never say in front of your mother.
SO with that said, I just have to tell you all...this is my first real attempt at a fanfic of any sort. And while I have basic grasp of writing, I do admit I also suck so hard at it. So I would appreciate some constructive criticism on this work, and will try and improve on any mistakes as this story goes on. I know damn well I have a hard time with things like imagery and description (like metaphorical kinda shit like "Her eyes were as blue the sky on that clear summer day." or "His hair, brown as the trees he had grown up around throughout his childhood, waved in the wind like the leaves that were falling on that breezy autumn day.") I am not exactly good with that sorta thing. Those two examples were easy enough because they were examples, not the real things I'm gonna be putting in my story. So I would appreciate the helps in correcting my flaws. Especially grammar, I may be able to spell pretty damn good, but I know damn well I am not good with the punctuation as much either. So with this....I bid you all adieu for now. Wish me luck on this crap. Also, I'm totally screwed on a proper title too. I mean, yeah it's Pokemon...but what else? Like "Pokemon:_________" what can I use for that blank? I'd totally appreciate ideas on this, don't be surprised if I shoot anything down though, this is my baby I'm working on and I wanna name it something that feels right. 

SO that's what has been going on in my life.

Later people ^_^

Slowbro by DevlinTheBlackI am so excited for this mofo. Don't even know son. Brotato just got boosted like a mofo son. Sp. Attack AND Defense are boosted AND Shell Armor prevents critical hits. This mofo is TANK as fuck son. See that frown he got from Shellder eatin him?? Just wait til battle!!! He'll take is rage out on you when he Calm Mind's like 5 times and either Scalds, or Psyshocks your shit. OH?? You got his health down into the red?? Slack Off bitch!!! Restore that health!!!! Ya'll niggas is fucked!!!! Coming soon in Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire....Mega Slowbro: Grilled Brotato Surprise!!!

....Let the shit stomp....begin...


Now, to clarify...last night (for me it was last night) the Korean Pokemon site "accidentally" uploaded the pics of Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino...now, I don't care too much for Audino but it's Mega looks nice and both defenses are boosted and the ability is Healer. Sounds quite tanky. NOW...for me, my real interest was the Mega Slowbro...see, Slowbro is one of my favorite Pokemon. My favorite Water type even. And I was thrilled at him getting a Mega. Both his Sp. Attack AND Defense are boosted and he gains the ability Shell Armor, which prevents critical hits. He becomes quite more tanky, as Slowbro's are Defense based, Slowking being Sp. Defense based (that's their main difference, they both have decent Sp. Attack though) and I have a special Slowbro already and..and...he's a shiny. I have a shiny Slowbro named Brotato and he's adorbs and he just got better with his Mega, so I can't wait to send him into my Omega Ruby because the setup I have on him doesn't need to change so he's automatically perfect. I loves mah Brotato <3

Another thing about Mega Slowbro is his frown. See...he realizes that Shellder is eatin him now, and the look on his face just screams "I really shouldn't have gone fishing with my tail..." so he looks sad but it's kinda cute cuz then you're like "Aww...poor Slowbro" and ya wanna love him more X3

Alright....I'm alive. I have not much to submit cuz my creative writing thingy is kinda just sittin around like "Sup." and not much else. Soooo.....I've been watching anime for the past, idk..week or so? I got this fat list of anime that's ALL DUBBED IN ENGLISH...yes I am a fan of anime that is dubbed. I hate subbed. I really don;t give a damn if it "sounds better" in Japanese, I don't understand that language and if I read subtitles then I'm more focused on words on the screen than the anime. If I wanted to read my anime, I'd stick to manga....which I primarily do anyways cuz a good most of the time the manga counterpart has a better storyline to the anime version, examples being: Shaman King, Rosario+Vampire (both first and second seasons), Bleach, Naruto (those 2 in manga have no bullshit filler to waste time), Tenjo Tenge, Air Gear, etc. I could go on with a list but that'd be boring as shit. ANYWAYS...back to the main reason for this journal, me. Yeah, been watching anime, just finished up the first season of Code Geass and gonna start on the second season. I love that series, so glad I took the time to watch it again.
Have I found a job? No. Same luck as always, but I've made a life decision. IF...IF I haven't found a job by October, I am enlisting in the United States Armed Forces...otherwise, the Army. My grandparents are fine with the decision, my grandpa more fine about it than my grandma...probably cuz he was in the military when he was younger lol. My grandma's cool with it, but I know she's disappointed that because I'm having no luck with the job I have to go enlist as a way to secure some kinda future for myself. Probably doing the worried grandma thing and hoping I don't get shot, but a number of the men in our family, her brother, her father, my gramps, my step-gramps, etc. have been enlisted in the military so she's fine with it more than I probably can guess.
Yep. So school? Can't register this semester. Why? Weeeelllllllll....I'm a bad student XD
Academic Probation....sooo....whoops XP
I'm still gonna see some people though, me and Jose have this dumb idea where I'll hangout at school in the cafeteria and hold onto a table and some outlets for the friends we actually like there so when they get outta class we have a secure station, ports to charge our shit, and being the fact I can be a rude jackass (it's a gift) to drive away the unwanted. Jose's too nice to be rude, but being an introvert with a bad attitude has its perks with me ^_^

So....Imma pretty easy guy kinda of an asshole or a nice guy at first if we first meet on the internet instead of in real life....Imma good friend if ya actually get to know me....a HUGE pervert(usually in jokes mostly)...possibly a good boyfriend...I think...idk, I've only ever had 1 girlfriend.... kinda random.....I like to think alot...and I daydream alot, usually about being a super hero or different scenarios in my life that could've happened or never will happen...and space out.....listen to my music (usually when im thinking, daydreaming, or spacing out)....and I think that right now im gonna be a lonely bastard in love for the rest of my life....and I don't care....I got me my friends....and that's good enough for me....but it doesn't mean I won't accept love....I just now aint gonna look for it...It can find me....fat chance that will happen (in my opinion anyways)...ya I forgot to mention...as much as I'm a cheerful, happy go lucky, loud, obnoxious asshole who probably seems to be a load of fun....I'm also very pessimistic when it comes to myself....I can't help it...I just am....but like any other guy I'll probably be disgusting and fart and burp in public (if it helps I tend to curb myself around pretty girls) or make some obscene comment about my bowels and what I do in the bathroom. Also YES I fucking masturbate...I don't care....not like it matters really cuz whether I have or don't have a girlfriend I don't expect them to "put out" really...so I got a hand and I watch porn...deal with it, I also curse like a fucking sailor....I'll use every bad, obscene, dirty, and racist word out there cuz half the time I won't give a shit (unless I'm being nice, around a friends parents, a person I'm working for, my own grandmother, or talking to a new friend cuz I don't wanna scare em off...yet) and I'll even do it in public around little kids...cuz they ain't my kids yo...or any kid related to my friends also...but ya...I fucking talk alot of obscene shit....deal with it but be grateful I'm willing to curb it sometimes. Let's see....I like video games, I own an Xbox 360 but I do like PS3 as well so you can't really tell me to pick cuz I just went with what was available at the time for me....I play action/adventure games, RPGs, fighting games, the only shooters I ever really play are Halo or Gears of Wars, cuz I hate Call of Duty and most other shooters...I suck at em....I like Final Fantasy, Pokemon, the Devil May Cry series, the Kingdom Hearts series, Prototype 1 and 2,the .Hack// series and .Hack G.U. series, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Naruto games, Dragonball Z games, Darksiders, Legend of Zelda series, the Metroid series, Super hero games (though the ones based off movies usually suck), speaking of super heroes Batman: Arkham City is another I play...um..guess that's it for now on games...not exactly a fan of MMOs(few exceptions). I'm a big anime, manga, and comic book super hero nerd. I like Bleach, Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist, Gundam, Inuyasha, Dragonball (Z) and (GT) as well, if it interests me I'll watch it or read it (depending on what version I prefer manga or anime version). I'm a big Star Wars fan, not a trekky though. I'm also a HUUUUGE Batman fan as one of my exclamatory remarks is "I'm Batman!!!" along with "My parents are deeaaadd!!!!". Also I'm a fan of Green Lantern, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Venom, Hulk, and a few others I can't remember atm. I don't exactly have parents, so there is some truth to the "My parents are dead" thing. I was raised by my grandparents since I was 3, I have no clue who my mom is other than name and stuff my grandma tells me and I hate my father, he's a total douche who wants to beat up his own son for stupid reasons and deserves to die and it's my lifes goal to surpass and be better than him....I feel like I inherited a lot sin from him and I wanna get rid of it...by being a better person and father than he is and ever will be. But that shit don't affect me negatively(much...I have my moments), I'll let you be the judge of that, but just sayin I turned out pretty well for a kid with no parents. I have a few siblings but the one you will hear me mention the most is my little sister Sage who is 15 and I love her to death and refer to her as my baby sister even though there's younger but I knew of her since she was born and it'll be almost 2 years since we really started to getting along, and I love her very much and she is very important to me and I worry about her alot cuz she is depressed most of the time and I worry about her cutting but I'll do whatever I can for her cuz I'm her big brother. Speaking of cutting...I have scars...some from my own problems but a majority of em are from this deal I make with any friends(or sister too) who cut or have a history of cutting...the deal is...if you cut then I cut, and I will make just as many if not more...I don't like my friends being hurt...and if I have to be hurt to show them there's no need to bleed out their problems and there's always something else...or even someone else that can make them happy or get rid of that anger or depression they have then I'm willing to make as many marks on me as needed. Also when it comes to girls I can fall pretty hard...granted I will pick myself up well enough on my own....but let's just say when it comes to girls and me falling then I got enough scrapes and bruises on that heart of mine and I'm sure I might keep gettin em...but I wouldn't mind if one of those girls I just happens to fall for helps me up ya know....just sayin. I don't smoke cigarettes but I do smoke hookah (google it if ya don't know it) or drink unless I'm up to party or very depressed (or single but that's usually related to the depression anyways) and NO DRUGS and I'm more or less a fun guy all around...I do keep shit bottled up inside but only cuz I'm very selective on who I want to hear my problems. It's not even a matter of trust...I'm just that picky and it even depends on what kinda problem too...so ya...
But I'm willing to help others and the least I can do for someone is be a listener and a shoulder to cry on and give a nice big hug....so what say you?? Wanna be friends? or maybe even more? :)

Also this is the most I've ever written in a while...and GODDAMN!!!! :O
