I figure I should mention that um...day that happened earlier this month before the actual month is over with. My birthday (July 12th).
I wasn't in the mood to mention it or announce it or tell anyone really. I am glad The Mare's Nest mentioned it. That made me feel good. I appreciate those who wished me such as well. You guys are too sweet! Thank you. :) Still...I'm just not into my own birthday anymore. After 21, birthdays are just boring and depressing for me. I know I'm still young, but I can't stand the thought of turning another year older now. I'll be 30 soon. Bleh.
I didn't do much on the actual day. My Dad end up having to go to work the next day and I didn't feel like eating out. I'm on a diet now actually, so eating out for me is kind of a nightmare. I'm still pissed about the 900 calorie burger I ate, but I'll get to that later. Yes, I'm counting calories. I've become one of those people. *sigh* Anyway, I ended getting really upset, because I didn't do a damn thing really that day. I was being really moody too, which didn't really help the situation.
They did make it up to me the following weekend. They took me to the casino. I've been wanting to go. I've never been to one before. It kind of looks like something out of the movies. I even sat at the roulette table, but I didn't get to sit there long and it wasn't as cool as the movies. I lost 15 dollars on that stupid thing. -_- I spent most of the time on the slots though and won 40 dollars on the Walking Dead slot machines they have there. Then I sat there like an idiot and lost it all. lol I end up walking away with 28 dollars and I spent that on other various slot machines. So in a nut shell, I won nothing!!!! Woooo! I think the only thing I walked away with is an obsession to win back the 40 dollars I lost. I think that's how gambling addicts start. 0_o
We also ate at one of the restaurants in the casino. One of Bobby Flay's restaurants. I think that's his name. Everybody kept raving about this dude and his burgers, so we've been wanting to check the place out. The burgers were ok, but they weren't anything special. The milkshakes were really good though. A bit small, but good. The burger for me though was not worth the calories. 900 calories! Ahhhh! I'm trying to eat only 1200 calories a day, so 900 literally killed the rest of the day for me with food. I won't be doing that again. I didn't count the fries or milkshake, so I know I f'd up real bad that day.
As for the calorie talk and diets, I'm doing pretty good! I was eating a lot things that weren't great for me, not drinking much water, and just eating lots of desserts. It caught up to me unfortunately. My problem areas were my thighs, waist, and arms mostly. My thighs or legs have never been super thin, but they are actually thinning out a lot now. I'm also doing good with my waist. I'm getting my coke bottle figure back. Well it's pretty much there, but I don't want to get too happy too soon. I even have room in my jeans. I think the only thing left is my stupid ass arms. I f'ind hate them right now. It's like all the fat went under my arms and stayed there. They alone make me look heavier than I want. It pisses me off. I'm going make it a habit to exercise the crap out of them.
The whole weight thing is like one of the many things on my list in regards to health. I hope losing the pounds improves my other issues. Anyway....
I didn't spend my birthday money thankfully. I got quite a bit this year. More importantly I got new games!!!! Ahhhh! I got Story of the Seasons (basically another Harvest moon), Ace Attorney: Dual Destines on sale, and Life is Strange on PS4. I'm going have to buy Game of Thrones on Steam, but I need a card or something. Anyway, I'm in game heaven! Let me explain my feelings about each game....
Story of the Seasons- Basically Harvest Moon under a different name, but more complicated and different than I imagined. I should go back and set it on easy, but I'm too damn lazy to go through the long ass tutorial again. I'm really confused about the whole trading vendor stuff. I gotta get back into it and figure it out. Nerveless, beautiful graphics!
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies- It's an Ace Attorney game! Why wouldn't I love it?!!! I'm not crazy about Apollo Justice being featured in it, but it's good so far. I think the only game Ace Attorney game I hated was the Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright game. I deserve this game after they forced me to solve all those damn puzzles! That was not an Ace Attorney game. It was a Professor Layton game with Phoenix shoehorned in. I will never play that again! I felt like it was a big ol slap to my face considering what Capcom did this to this series. Grrrrrrrr....Dual Destinies better be good! I still hate Capcom with a fiery passion! They were even too lazy and cheap to put this out in physical carriage form. Thank goodness I got wifi now. Asshole Capcom! FFS you make EA look like saints!
Life is Strange- I am officially hooked and in love! OMG! Epicness! It's like a Telltale game with the choice based stuff, but it's a young adult drama and your character can rewind time! Oooo Telltale got them some competition! I think Dontnod Entertainment might of even done a better job than TT. Seriously! It's amazing! It hit the 1 million download mark, so it's getting popular. It's only 19.99 for the whole season (5 episodes) right now. I think that's pretty cheap compared to Telltale and the horrendously overpriced PS4 games on the market now. It's on the PC and other platforms if you want to check it out. I just happened to buy it for the PS4, because I had no clue it was on the pc at the time. With me playing it on the console on the ol television, my grandmother does get to watch it and she even likes it. You would think she was watching a movie. lol If you do get it, click everything, pay attention to EVERYTHING, and use collectible mode to take photos you missed. :)
That's about it as in games. I might buy something else with my money, but I don't want to become overwhelmed. Now that I think of it, I don't have much to say about my birthday either. I went to casino, got some awesome games, got a little alcohol in me, and almost ruined my diet. lol I think that's it. I'm too tired to type anything else, so I'll leave it there. xD
