Snow and Instruments

Phantom pretty much sums up how I’m feeling at the moment, haha. I’m tired of snow and cold weather and I’m ready for summer. To make things worse, the heating at work is useless and the building management is being rather slow about doing something about it. It being so cold in the office only makes my job that much more irritating.

But enough of that, onto better things!

Recently, I’ve been looking around for a good beginner bass and found a purple Ibanez that I really like, so I think I’ll start saving up for it. I’ve had a bass before, but didn’t get to practice on it very much. The one that I’m looking at is even better than the one I had. If I do get it, this time, I’ll actually learn how to play it properly and not leave it sitting in it’s bag. I think the problem with my old one, the reason why I didn’t play it very much, was because it was a bit bigger than I would have liked (it was a present) and it never felt very comfortable. The one that I’m looking at, however, is lighter and smaller than the one I had, so I think it’ll be easier for me to handle.

That’s all from me for now since I’m up past my bedtime. Here’s hoping the snow will melt faster!


Snow and Ice

As expected, we woke up to tons of snow. At least 5 inches to start with and it didn’t quit snowing until the evening. As much as I wanted to go out and take a lot of pictures, my body can’t handle the cold weather like it used to be able to. I stayed inside all day, only cracking the door now and then to snap a picture and quickly closing it after I was done.

It’s too dark for me to check the yard stick that we put outside, but I believe we got well over 10 inches of snow total. This mess of snow is just what’s outside our front door on the 3rd floor of our building.

And these lovelies are hanging from the top. It would be a bad time for anyone who happens to be under those if they break.

It honestly feels like we’re encased in ice and snow. Here’s hoping it melts soon and doesn’t start up again, though, I think there’s more on the way..

Bravely Default


Pre-ordered my copy of the collector’s edition of Bravely Default today. I hadn’t played the demo yet, but I downloaded it as soon as I got home. After playing it all night, I’m looking forward to the full release even more!

Since it seems like we’ll be snowed in tomorrow, we braved the grocery store and got a few things that we needed. It looks like my day will be spent finishing up a few shop orders and presents and then gaming since we won’t be going anywhere.

If anyone else reading this is going to be hit by this incoming winter storm, stay safe and stay warm!



As expected, we awoke to a lot of snow this morning. It wasn’t a pleasant ride to work, but it could have been worse. The roads weren’t as plowed as we thought they should have been, but we’ve driven through far worse. Of course, I would have loved to have just stayed home in bed all day, but I like having money, so not going into work wasn’t an option.

Work was irritating and I’ll leave it at that. Also, I think I might be coming down with something, so that didn’t help my mood. Here’s hoping that I can ward off whatever it is.

After work, my day got much better with yummy pizza and a package from a friend of mine in Thailand, so my night ends on a happy note.

Good night!

Hello April

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I’ll go back to attempting daily posts starting now.

Since I last wrote, in January, my company was bought by a better company, so we’re still easing into the mindset of belonging to a new company and getting used to the way that they do things.

February was uneventful for the most part..except that my roommate and I were able to purchase our tickets to Japan~! We’re both really excited to go back and see our friends as well as go to more parts of Japan that we haven’t been to. We’ll be there mid-October to November.

March was also uneventful and snowy. I’m tired of snow and I think it’s done for the time being, but I was able to get a picture that I was especially proud of—


I’m really happy I managed to capture that cute fluffy thing, haha.

All for now. I’ll update again later!



More colour is filling in the green lately, so of course I had to take some shots after I got off work. Things are really the prettiest during the sunset, so I waited ’til then.




Just those for now. Off to work on Christmas ornaments and such for the shop.

More pictures to come tomorrow if the weather is nice.

Fall mood


I know it’s not fall yet, but I’ve been more than ready for it, so once we hit September, I pulled out the decorations, mainly just the pumpkins and seasonal candles. While the cats are technically Halloween oriented, those are actually the salt and pepper shakers we use year round. I’m saving the rest of my Halloween decor for October.

So the apartment is very pumpkin-y, which makes me a happy kitten. And to keep with the early fall-like activities, I had my first Pumpkin Spice Frappucinno from Starbucks yesterday! As I thought, it’s delicious with the chips.



Today is the first day of my week off from work. I’m not really going anywhere, just taking some much needed time away from work and getting settled in at the new apartment.

It’s really gorgeous outside today, so I think I’ll go take a nice long walk at some point later in the day. Feels almost like the beginning of fall. It’s a nice change from the 100+ heat we’ve had all summer.

Ending here to enjoy my delicious frozen custard☆
