I’ve had the most unexpected urge to want to listen to Lady Gaga songs the last couple days…
I seriously don’t know why… LOL
My day’s consisted of:
- cleaning my apartment
- making and eating food and smoothies
- playing CoD:MW2 and CoD:Ghosts
- doing laundry
- absolutely hating CoD:Ghosts
- oh, and did I forget to mention Netflix?
Wow, so if I’m correct in my understanding of the pricing to be an exhibitor at Fan Expo, it’s almost $500 to rent just a standard indie/artist/small press table for the entirety of the expo.
I mean, Fan Expo IS one of the biggest conventions in Canada, but… that’s a lot of money to have to spend up front JUST to be able to be an indie/artist/small press exhibitor at a convention.
I love having a massive gaming desktop, but I just hate how much heat it creates and how hot my room gets when I have my desktop turned on, especially for long periods of time.
It literally feels like a hot and muggy summer day in my room right now…
Gosh, I’ve played so much CoD:MW2 these past few days…
What am I doing with my life?

I just realized…
DeFranco Does Toronto, Riot Fest, and Unplugged Expo are all happening in September, and I’ve been telling myself that I wouldn’t spend any money starting September… DAMN IT! :P
Actually, I’m not overly disappointed. There are no more tickets available for purchase to DeFranco Does Toronto, and Riot Fest is just too much money to spend in one sitting, especially because there are only a couple bands I’d like to see live. Unplugged Expo may be an option, but it’s not until the end of September, and it’s only $25/$35 for weekend ticket, so I still have time to decide if I want to go, and it’s very affordable.
I wonder how long it would take to buy a ticket for and to get into Fan Expo if I were to make it to the MTCC by about 1pm-1:30pm today.
Anyone waiting to buy a ticket to get into Fan Expo right now?
My plan for September (and for the rest of the year) is to be incredibly conservative with the amount of extra money I make after dealing with all my expenses. I’m going to make it a commitment to try and save at least 80% or more of my take home/extra cash and put it in savings, and only allow myself to spend a maximum of 20% of my take home/extra cash.
I really want to be able to say that I have a decent amount of savings, and not only that, but I also hate having next to no savings, not only because of the cost of living on my own, but also because I can’t even consider going back to school until I have at least one school years worth of tuition and books and such saved that I can spend. I also hate the anxiety I experience thinking about the fact that I have next to no savings, and that if something really bad were to happen to me, like if I were to suddenly need extremely expensive medication, or need to get a tooth pulled, or anything like that, I most likely wouldn’t be able to pay for it.
I’ve recently been comparing plans that cellphone service providers offer, and I must say, the plans that WIND Mobile offers are much more worth paying for than what just about any other cellphone service provider offers in terms of features. Their plans basically trump just about every other plan I’ve seen that other providers offer. I just wish their area coverage wasn’t so limited, but that still may not stop me from switching to them in the near future, and especially because one of the phones that’s available through them is the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, which is a fantastic phone for the price, and much more powerful than my current phone, and if I trade my current phone in for credit, not only will that lower the cost of buying the Huawei phone outright, but trading it in will give me the reassurance that my current phone will be disposed with or reused in a safe way.
Played CoD:MW2 online for a decent amount of time last night, and I must say, I quite enjoyed playing the game.
I never really did give the game a chance when it first came out, but I guess it’s never too late to give a game a chance!
I mean, I bought CoD:Ghosts for PC at launch, so I paid over $60 for the game, and I still consider it one of the worst gaming-related purchases I’ve ever made. I told myself I would never buy another CoD game, new or old, ever again, and then a few weeks later, I end up finding CoD:MW2 for PS3 for only $4, and my friend was with me and he said it’s well worth $4, so I picked it up and let it sit on my desk basically unplayed until just last night, and I’m going to be perfectly honest here and say that I’m already liking CoD:MW2 a whole lot more then Ghosts, not only because the gameplay is much more fluid and smooth, but it’s also easier to get into, there are no dogs to deal with, and it doesn’t crash.
Gosh, I hate CoD:Ghosts…
I REALLY want a swingasan chair.
I actually did end up falling asleep.
Now to get myself out of bed.
This should be interesting…
