arise: (final fantasy ♥ secrets)
Wow, so I haven't posted here in a long time.

Um. Not much has changed. I played Alan Wake finally and really enjoyed it, even if Alan is kind of absolutely a massive dick. Will pick up the DLC when I am a bit more financially solid. Replaying DAII now on Nightmare mode after finally making a One True Warden save, so that's nice. Husband also just played DAII for the first time, so it's been a very Dragon Age-themed household for a few weeks. I thought for a brief time that I might manage to not romance Fenris, and was planning to hold out for Sebastian, but then I got distracted and flirted with Fen anyway. Sigh.

Watching husband begin Final Fantasy VII now. I hope he'll like it, because he was uncertain about DAII and then really enjoyed it so I don't want to break my streak.

As for reality, uh. Everything's just sort of milling along. I should go back to work soon but the future's so up in the air that I don't want to apply for work until I know what's going on... and I guess I'm enjoying not feeling like crap for the first time in like a year. I'm still trying to work out uni, anyway. I'm enrolled in a Masters of Social Work but I kind of hate the university, and there's a Bachelor of Laws/Theology course at another uni that I'm interested in. But there's something to be said for incumbency. idk.

Alex is going really well, though! She's smiling and starting to make babbling noises. It's really, really cute. :)

Tried to play Final Fantasy XIII-2. Got about an hour in before consigning it to trade-ins. Between Serah looking disconcertingly thin and the plot taking itself so seriously when the dialogue is so stilted... idk. Maybe I just don't have the patience I used to. It's too bad, because the battle system was fun and I did like XIII, but oh god it is like everything I hate about J-RPGs.

I've been pretty ill lately, so gaming is once again a concern. Went to the hospital twice in as many days. Fortunately baby is absolutely fine, all problems are with mama. DX Though yesterday's hospital visit seems to have been a freak case of food poisoning.

Not sure what to play next. Any recs?

Have mainly been replaying Final Fantasy X and watching Battlestar Galactica for the first time (late to fandom lol). Realised that Auron and Papa Adama (as opposed to Baby Adama) actually look a lot alike. Cannot unsee.

We had our first appointment with the obstetrician yesterday, which was overall pretty good. It took forever, but they gave us a bunch of goodies, and everyone was really nice. We had to get a couple of blood tests done to see if we were carriers for some disorders, but apparently that's routine, so I'm not too worried. If something like that did come up, we'd handle it, but there's no point in getting freaked out about it prematurely!

On the negative side, my stomach is getting really noticeably big and I feel really crappy and self-conscious :/ Especially since I'm too sick/drained all the time to exercise very much.

Watching Theo play El Shaddai right now, as he's in a bit of a snit with Skyrim, something to do with a skeleton. It's amazingly pretty - I've never seen anything quite like it. I actually really want to show it to my dad, but he's still away overseas.

I decided to bite the bullet and purchase a paid account on Dreamwidth today! I'm really enjoying using it, I like the ethos that the designers have, and it's really not that expensive. I've got to get a whole bunch of icons, though - I actually lost most of mine when I was switching computers! I'll still be crossposting to LJ, though. I might change my username here. I'm sure that arise seemed awesome and hipsterish to me in 2009, but here in 2012 I'm just sort of baffled by it. I think I was going somewhere with it, but where?

Replaying FFX, as I am wont to do. Theo and I have a pretty good system right now whereby he's leveling a pally to play with my overlevelled hunter, so FFX-WoW is in full swing. That said, even though I'm Hunter 4 Lyfe and all, I've actually been messing around with a priest and really enjoying it. Especially dungeons, which is... odd, because I've always sworn not to touch actual multiplayer content with a ten foot pole. But being a healer is simple and satisfying.

To elaborate a bit on the last post - we had the 20 week ultrasound yesterday, and our baby girl is doing fine :) She's absolutely where she's meant to be down to the day. It was freaky as hell seeing the ultrasound, though - on TV, it's always like these smooth images of a serenely floating baby. This was basically a mess of tiny little bones flailing around. I'm not sure which was weirder, the tiny little paw-like hands and feet or the spine. I used to think of babies as fleshy little blobs, but now all I can think of is the skeleton!
