BLOG -- Recap of April

I'm glad the weather is finally getting warmer, despite the crazy days where we still got hail (I mean, what the heck? lol). I am still continuing my movie-watching trend. I'm even surprised with myself.

May is gonna be a very busy month for me -- I can feel it, lol.


Outings/Events in April:
- Stayed over at my sister's place x1. 

- Hung out with friends x1. 

- Went on vacation for a week! Woot! (I'm still on vacation -- I might blog about this for fun).


- Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn achievements / news: 
-My main character got her zeta bow. Woot! I decided to not rush it this time, since I lost some of my sanity the last time I rushed on getting the latest Relic weapon.
-My main character participated in an Easter event run by another FC. It was pretty fun! I'm glad I logged on at the right time.
-I've finally caught up with the story quests for my main character. Wow... all those cutscenes and plot development.
-My alt character reached level 50 SMN, yayyy. After I reach 50 with another alt character, I think I'll be done with creating new characters -- at least for a while, lol.



Exposures:
- (PS4) Don't Starve: Console Edition -- This is an interesting game. It kinda makes me think of Minecraft, but way more harsh. So far I can't survive past 7 days. I can see myself totally playing this from time to time.

- (Food) Tim Horton's Pastry Pockets filled with Nutella -- This was okay.

- (Food) Tim Horton's Chocolate Hazelnut Donut filled with Nutella -- I really enjoyed the donut, lol.


Finished...
Watching:
- (Movie): Kingsman: The Secret Service -- Yes, I watched this again... and I can still watch it another time! Lol.

- (Movie): Cinderella (live-action) -- This was pretty decent. I've never watched the cartoon version in its entirety, so this was my real first exposure.

- (Movie): Apartment Zero -- I watched this for Colin Firth, lol. It's pretty good.

- (Movie): Horrible Bosses -- I thought the setup was interesting... then I thought differently as the movie continued on. I didn't like it by the end.

- (Movie): Sexy Beast -- This was good. I totally forgot that I had already watched this.

- (Movie): Mad Max -- My sister and I are gearing up for the upcoming movie. Mad Max is a bit slow, but good for setting up the character.

- (Movie): Mad Max 2 (AKA The Road Warriors) -- I liked this more than Mad Max, lol.

- (Movie): Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome -- It seemed like too much stuff was going on here. I think it would have worked fine if there wasn't as many characters.

- (Movie): Love Actually -- I had no idea this was an R-rated movie, lol. But I liked it a lot. A lot more funnier than I had imagined, and unexpectedly sweet at times. I watched this for Colin Firth, lol.

- (Movie): The Suicide Song -- This was not good. The theme song was really nice, though.

- (Movie): Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy -- I watched this for Colin Firth. It was quite an intense movie. I think it's worth watching at least once.

- (Movie): Nanny McPhee -- I watched this for Colin Firth, lol. It was okay.

- (Movie): A Nightmare on Elm Street -- This was creepy. I don't know why I make myself watch these horror movies, lol.

- (Movie): A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge -- This was also creepy, but not in the same way. I don't think it really worked.

- (Anime): Kokoro Connect (OVA) -- Contrary to the anime series, where I didn't know what to feel about it, I really enjoyed the OVA. It takes place right after the anime series, though, so it'd be good to watch that first.


Playing:
- (PS4): Costume Quest 2 -- This was a pretty fun game.

- (PS4): Thomas was Alone -- This is a really simple and easy-ish game, but I really enjoyed the narration and music. Kudos on this!

- (PS4): Destiny -- I finished the main story so I'll consider it done. I'll probably still pop on there from time to time. 

Reading:
- (Manga): Nothing this time.

That's it for April. Here are several pics I took this month (most of them from Final Fantasy) plus another Kingsman-related Youtube interview I enjoy listening to.


 The chocolate hazelnut donut filled with Nutella. I really like the donut part, mmmmmm...

My main character getting her zeta!

One of the activities for the Easter event (run by an FC on the Masamune server).
I think the activity was called "Hot Lava".

Another activity for the Easter event. This activity was called "Spriggans 4 Life".
Soooo cute!! <3 

One of my outfits from that fashion / lingerie show that 
happened last month (run by the FC I'm part of). I like her "punk" look, lol.

Outfit #2 from the fashion / lingerie show. The standard bikini, lol.

Outfit #3 from the fashion / lingerie show. I think the bunny ears make a nice touch.

Outfit #4 from the fashion / lingerie show. I think this is my favourite outfit.

Outfit #5 from the fashion / lingerie show. I don't remember if I actually showed this at the show, but I had it ready just in case.


Interview with Matthew Vaughn about Kingsman: The Secret Service, 
done by Jonathan Ross. They don't show clips from the movie, 
but there are still spoilers, so don't watch it unless you 
don't mind spoilers or you've watched the movie. 
I really like Matthew Vaughn's bluntness and honesty.


Have a good rest of the week and thanks for reading! :)
