Or, well, not to nowhere, but it sometimes feels like it, haha. Anyway, my grandmother’s funeral is over, her will is known to her children, and they are all three working together on it. I’m glad they managed to figure out what to do without the help of a lawyer, like I’m used to when someone dies in this family. I don’t know much about the will, and quite frankly, I don’t care much, as I’m just a grandchild, but according to my mom, it was very specific, which was to be expected of my very well organized grandmother.
Few days after her death though, I got a letter from DR1, the biggest TV station in Denmark, and I had no clue what they wanted from me. Opening the letter and reading the first few lines made it very clear though; my father was trying to contact me through a show called “Aldrig for sent” (Never too late), and it made my piss boil. I don’t want to explain in every detail why I don’t want to have anything to do with that idiot, but my mom has tried to make it very clear to him over the past 11 years, that he’s to stay away from us. The problem is though, that he’s a dense motherfucker, who doesn’t give a shit about what other people think or feel. So yeah, this was just another one of his awkward attempts at wanting to include me in his pitiful life, with his stupid ass wife and mother, who fit him so well. When someone says that you cannot choose your family, I always say “Yes you can!”, and I’m choosing not to acknowledge this fucker even exists. If only he’d have enough brain cells to actually accept that, and stop wasting time on pursuing me. Anyway, I called the TV station and told them the truth about him, and that they should not help a maniac on the loose. Sounded like it was not the first time someone tried to contact people who wanted nothing to do with them through that show, so the woman on the other end was very understanding, and would call my father to let him know he is not wanted. I wonder what he comes up with next…
Sooo, I also called the shop from where we got this problem child of a PC, because I keep having issues with FFXIV, as some stuff isn’t loading properly, and the graphics are actually worse than on the 11 year old PC we parted with for this piece of trash. Turns out we didn’t get what we ordered last year, and it finally shows now that I’m using the PC for what I wanted to. My boyfriend told them to build a PC that could handle FFXIV specifically, so that I wouldn’t have to choose between graphics or performance. They promised him (and still do) that this is a gamer PC, and it can handle FFXIV without any issues. Well, that’s a downright lie. Now they want us to drop off the PC at their shop (again, again, again, again, again) for them to check what is wrong with it, but we know how it ends. One week without a PC, and then we get it back with them saying, that it’s working as intended, and the problem must be in our end. I was even yelled at when I called them last month, before I could even explain what my issue was. My boyfriend then asked a colleague at work for advice, and he gave us the address of a website, where you can check if your PC is able to run a specific game, and if not, what needs to be changed in order for it to work. I ran the check at home, and of course it ended up telling me, that this PC can’t even handle FFXIV on minimum settings. The graphics card is simply shit, and not made for gaming. At that point, I had gotten a mail from the shop, that they were having a sale this weekend, and that I could get new parts at their event. Yeah, sell me parts because you didn’t deliver? No thanks! Needless to say, that we’re done with their bullshit, and that we’ll buy parts elsewhere. I’ll get a new graphics card, and then put 32MB RAM (or, well, we’ll see *lol*) into this piece of trash, and then get rid of the problem child nickname it’s had for over a year now. I’ll make that PC shine brighter than the sun! And then get a new monitor too, because I need it…
While being on the topic, the PC can miraculously still play FFXIV, even with the issues I have, and I managed to reach my goal of all lvl 60! I’ve still not stepped into Stormblood territory, and probably won’t until I’ve got new parts for the PC, but I’m still having lots of fun. I leveled Red Mage as the last class, and it felt so weird when I reached lvl 60 on it. Nowhere to go from now, but… Crafting! The screenshot is already a bit old, as my Astrologian is lvl 65 now, and all crafting skills somewhere between 50 and 53. My next goal is to empty my bags and retainers as much as possible, so I’ll be able to loot new stuff in Stormblood, without having storage issues. Crafting is expensive though, especially when you’re so shit at it as I am, so I’m only moving very slowly, since I’m a cheap ass Scrooge who doesn’t like wasting her Gil on gear and materials. At first, my biggest issue was getting shards though, but I found a solid solution to that. I’m planning on making a tutorial for shard farming here (for some odd reason), so I won’t get into that now.
Switching topic, I’m also crafting a bit in real life again, and am better at it with my real hands than my gamer hands. I got my package from Pandahall a while ago, and did some chainmaille jewelry crafting for the fun of it. I really like working with jumprings, and would like to buy more in different colors someday. It takes hours of work to create a simple bracelet though, so I’ve only made 2 so far (partially because of all the shit of the past 2 weeks). I can show you one of them, as the other one is a gift for my FC leader Y’neea. Well, they’re both on Instagram, but you can look at the other one yourself if you really want to.
I’ve still not opened the shop, and I’m annoying myself with my laziness *sigh* However! I completed chapter 2 of my novel, and even posted my weird little piece I made while taking a break on Wattpad. I might write more stupid stuff like that and post it on there, but we’ll see. I plan on finishing Bakura too, but am not in a hurry with that one, so if I complete it before 2018, I’d be happy. Also, I got some nice books at a flea market last weekend, and would really like to read more again, especially since 2 of them were written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle! The first thing I did though, was ripping jewelry apart and clean everything, then pop it all into tiny bags. Oh my gosh, I have so many funny beads now, thanks to that flea market, haha! Aaalso, I’m almost done watching the first season of Little Witch Academia, but it’s hard concentrating on it, when also wanting to watch Kakegurui. I don’t care what people say about that show, I find it very funny, but I’ll elaborate on that when the final episode has aired, and I can write a review here. It’s been a while since my last anime review. Not good! Gotta watch more anime!
Okay, this is already a really long post, but I’ve not written (nor done) anything noteworthy for a while, so whatever 😀
