    You know what? I haven't updated this blog for awhile so hey, why not do something with it.

    As for what's been going on in my life? Well, sleep has been kicking my ass earlier this year...well, actually more like since late December. I've had nights where I could not sleep at all and when I finally went to work, then I would feel tired as hell and then when I'd come back home, I would crash and the cycle begins a new. I had to miss a few days from work because of this. I don't know how this happened. Not sure if it's exhaustion or what but I knew that something had to be done. My supervisor recommended me to give melentonin a try and it's been working wonders. I've been putting myself on a sleep schedule and now I am sleeping a lot better and feel more rested as a result. Now I feel awake during the day and don't feel a need to take a nap when I get home so that gives me some much needed free time.

    On the subject of work, I am being trained on a new program which will give me a raise. Now, it's not yet known exactly how much the raise will be but word on the street is it's gonna be a $7.00 raise. Assuming that's true, that means I'll be making about 20 bucks an hour. Maybe not so much in a big city sense but where I live where you're lucky to find a job that pays even $10 an hour? That's gangbusters. I'm crossing my fingers that this is true since my rent got raised on me. That and it'll finally allow me to save up for a new comp that I've been meaning to get as well as getting my first gun.

    And in other good news, I got a big trip coming up. I'll be heading down to an anime convention in the last week of this month. The plan is me and my buddies are gonna stop at a shooting range to fire off some gats and then we'll be off to the con where it'll be a weekend of anime, male bonding, and booze. It's always the highlight of my year since it's just a grand ol' time with some friends. I'm gonna try to lay off on the junk food and booze for the next few weeks so that way I'll be in kind of, sort of better shape for when the time comes. I'll be sure to take some interesting pics if I find anything. The pics should be of better quality this time thanks to my new and improved phone...well, I had it for awhile but still, the pics will look totally fucking sweet.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be hyping for the release of Devil May Cry 5 by jamming out to this song.

    Good for you, that's tough to pull off as a busy adult. I tend to get stuck in that >arrive home >nap >can't sleep -cycle too. Also good work with the raise. What kind of work do you do? Enjoy the new gat, that's a hobby we definitely have in common.

    Have you played thee rest of the series? I've never actually played any DMC games, despite owning the 1,2,3 collection disc for the PS3. I've only ever watched a friend play it back in middle school. I'm not into competing with myself for points/high-score or anything like that, can I still enjoy it for its story or characters? Or is it all action-oriented?

    I do call center work. Mainly, it's scheduling people to take exams so they can get license to sell insurance. What I've been trained on is accommodations which is to help people set up for extended time/extra breaks/whatever so if they have a learning disability, they can have an easier time taking it. I haven't gotten the raise just yet. I think the higher ups are still finalizing things with HR but from what I've heard, it's supposed to finally go into effect later this spring.

    Nice to hear you're into firearms too. Any cool ones that you've owned? I got to fire quite a few but I was never able to own one either due to money problems or just trouble getting transportation to get to my local county office to fill out a permit to own. With this raise coming up, I should have an easier time getting it. The trouble is deciding which one to get. I've been thinking about getting a SIG P226 since I remember firing that at the range and it felt really good. The only problem is SIGS are expensive as shit. They typically run at about $1,000 and even the cheapest one I found was 900 bucks. So realistically I've been thinking of getting either a Springfield XDM .45 or a CZ-75B (The latter because I'm a filthy weeaboo and it's the closest that I'll ever get to having Rally Vincent's weapon of choice).

    Have I played the other DMC games? Why good, sir DMC is my favorite video game series after Doom! I always loved it because they are essentially the classic Capcom beat 'em ups on steroids where you have to be as stylish as possible in defeating enemies. How good the stories are? Well, the series has always placed gameplay over story but it kind of fluctuates. DMC1 had a pretty simple, straightforward story but it does a good job of getting the action going. DMC 2, which is considered the worst, has a pretty forgettable story. DMC 3 is the best written in the series since it does a great job of developing Dante and why he fights for humanity. DMC 4 is pretty good too, though supposedly a lot was cut out of the plot due to a decreased development time. Each game in the series basically has a theme of "love and compassion is what makes humanity great" but it's not done in a really in depth way. Basically, just look at them as fun, action adventure tales with lots of goofy, batshit moments you'll be good.

    Oh, and anyone that tells you that the DmC reboot has a superior story is full of shit. It has weak, shallow characters and has plot points that is just a rip off of They Live. People like to make fun of DMC 1's "I should've been the one to fill you're dark soul with LIIIIIIIIGGGHHHTT." scene but none of them are as face palm worthy and try hard as this.
