10k post celebration blog that chances are no one will read?

 
Safety warning. *I take no responsibility for bad sentence structure,Grammar or typos for this blog. Its worked 8 and a half hours 4 days straight now and barely gotten 6 hours of sleep each night for those days*   
 
*Small edit. Thank you @Sparklykiss for removing the POST and letting make this a BLOG* 
 
Yup. It all started here Nearly 2 years ago I took my first step and made my post. Course I was here a little longer then that. What brought me to giant bomb was the release of "Rogue warrior" Course I was kinda interested so I followed the foot steps and found  
   

  I was kinda shocked at being smacked with so many cusses and what not but quickly realized it was done to make fun of the game. 
 
I then went backwards and watched all the quicklooks. Blah blah blah I signed up. Blah blah blah someone cast bufu when they should not have blah blah blah "Isn't that right Zack" Blah blah blah Patrick arrives and now we are here. Nearly 2 years later I am making this thread that chances no one will read. But hey. Its nearly 11 pm and I got off work barely an hour ago.  
 
So lets move on. 
 

WHAT AM I DOING?! 

 Right now mostly working 35 ish hours a week and trying to not kill my manager. Its amazing how one person can attract so much hate. I like to this of myself a passive person. I hate violence and hate conflict when its not needed. But this one person seems to target me out for no reason. If something is not done right I am blamed. The reason? " It was BOTH your jobs"  Course the logical idea is "They would get in trouble to right?...Nope." It seems the faults of two becomes the fault of me. Luckily my manager is out for surgery and wont be around for 3 weeks. As of last week a very nice feeling of peace has fallen across the work place and everyone seems much more...relaxed.   
 
Anyone who has read another of my blogs knows I got a truck! Year one went fine no real issues. Course with cars come issues. Shit breaks and breaks at bad times. My first run in was with the battery wires more or less rusting out. a 66 dollar towing fee and 20 dollar repair fee had my hopes up of it being fixed. 23 hours later again it died. Turns out they MISSED the OTHER cable (Yes both cables where rusted to hell). So right there was 100 bucks gone. Time went on and all was well. Till it was inspection time. A buddy of my cousins said he would help me out with the inspection. Course the day we showed up he was out with a tooth thingy. (Now he wont help us cause of something about conflict of interest or blah blah blah) But on the bright side I have a chance coming Tuesday. So wish my luck with that. 
 

WHAT AM I PLAYING?! 

 Well not much as of 2012. Kinda been stressed but lets show what I DID play before the new year rolled around

 Dark Souls was picked up during my week vacation from work and anyone who followed me on Twitter or talked to me on AIM quickly learned it sucked me in. The air of depression and being alone quickly stole my heart and the threat of death from even common baddies won me over. Something so SOUL crushingly DARK...*Ill stop now* turned many people away but for some reason I just played for hours on end. Beating the game and even restarting it netted me over 100 hours in it * Something I really wanna go back to for more PVP*  I say for the next Souls game. Bring the pain,Bring the sadness, I am one man. I have my shield and sword. No force shall stop me. Not creature will defeat me. For I am hollowed and will never die.

Crazy? Check. Explosions? Check. Balls to the wall Action? Check. Saints row the third was picked up on gentle coaxing from a few review sites. And Giant bombs Very own quick look. At first I was not sure if this game was for me. But ONE mission changed that. About to parachute onto a penthouse to steal it for my own As I leaned out of the chopper it started..."No one man should have all that power" Somthing inside me snapped and a grin crept across my face. Out of the chopper I went and to Kanye West I shot up the building and took my first step into Steelport. And each step after that was more zaney. Not to mention the cast I loved. Auto tuned pimp? Big ol Russian Bruiser? Ex FBI nerd? All my homies. I am the king of Steelport and my take over has hardly begun 
 
 
 
 
  

 

WHAT I NEED TO PLAY

  

 
 Sadly I have not gotten much into this game. ID was a big part of my childhood. Doom was one of the first FPS I played..*Or can recall playing* Enough so that my text sound for my next phone will be the double barrel shotgun shoot and reload sound. Post Apocalypse has all ways caught my eye. The world at its knees clawing to stay alive. Something..just something about it keeps me wanting more. However somewhere I lost myself and stopped playing. I do plan to go back. The wasteland calls and I will answer 
 
 
 
 
 
 
PC box art (cropped)
 
I had no interest in this game for the longest time. Until I heard more and more about it was a zombie game "Just done right" Right now however it sits still in plastic wrap. Maybe this year I can pick up a bat and swing for the fences *And zombie heads* 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Final Box Art
  
 
Fus Ro Dah baby. The game that many waited for and stood in line for hours came out. I was one of those who stood in line *20 mins* and quickly went home. I however did not dive in. I played combined maybe 10 hours. Something lost me. The world? The battle system? It was..just something. I lost interest. I DO plan to go back so don't hate me. The Dovahkiin will save Skyrim. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What am I listening to?!  

Not having a Smartphone or Ipod really limits my music listening to time to video games or just youtube. Course I do listen when ever I can. As I even type  
 
  
  Is playing. Something I dug up from my childhood. My mother had gotten me a CD filled with a bunch of popular songs or.. something not able to recall but this one song stuck.  
 
I am however more of a fan of Daft Punk so of course their music ranks high on my list (Including remixes) So of course 
 
    
    Why not toss in some Anamangochi as well  
  
   

WHY AM I PREM MEMBER?! 

 
Quite a few people here know I am not...rich. I work hard and try to get more hours. Lets be honest. The U.S is kinda fucked right now in money. The 1%/99% stuff. Course before X mas rolled around one of our very own picked to share his own good will and gift me a entire year of Shiny gold member 
 
@Branthog has my thanks and friendship. *Hopefully he sees this blog and wades though my ranting*  
 
Thanks to him I can watch older videos in big ol Shiny HD. So again thank you duder!  
 

What am I looking forward to?! 

 2012 is gonna be a big year. Lots of releases and what not. ANYONE who knows me at the top of the list is 
 
Official logo of BioShock Infinite.
 
I loved the first two. The entire feel of the game. Utopia gone wrong. Chaos around each corner with the your little bubble leaking. (Can anyone spot the trend with me?) I have high hopes for this one and can not wait till it is released 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Runner ups!  
 
Err..uhhh...Ok its near fucking midnight. I can not think or be bothered to find pics. 
 
Witcher 2 for 360 
Prototype 2 *Yes I liked the first*  
And some others 
  
 
TAX SEASON IS COMING! My first goal? New computer so I can rumble with the bombers on BF3! 
 

SHATTERED HOPES

 
Again money issue crap. I have been very excited about the IPHONE 4S. I had found a plan with Sprint that gives 450 mins and unlimited text/data. Something that I COULD AFFORD! After looking over the plans I sent a quick question to support (Something about their network) However with the answer my hope started to crumble. They now charge a 10 dollar "Premium" data plan which brings the cost to near 80 bucks. Another 10 dollar would not be much right? Course I had forgotten about taxes. At my current income I could not really afford 90 bucks a month unless it is EXACTLY 90 dollars or less. *Still hope?*  
 

Lets wrap this shit up

 
In my 2 years I have seen and heard a lot. I'm sure a few people here hate me. I wonder if anyone even cares I am posting this. I felt I needed to do something to celebrate. So yay.. Balloons streamers and  soda.  
 
Thank you for reading all this. And if you wanna hear more  
 
Twitter 
Of course I have a 360 and anyone who wants that can message me.  
 
Thank you all for reading this and again sorry for any grammar mistakes and what not.  
  
 
There is so much more I wanted to type but I am sure people would get sick of it. But before I go.  
 
Meet meko. My buddy and pet. We all need a cuddle after a day of work.

For what it's worth, I read it. When I grow up I wanna be just like you!

I read it. And I have to say you have fantastic taste in music and games. Oh and quicklooks, because nothing can beat that Rogue Warrior one.

What was I saying?

Whatever, happy ten thou!

Seeing you as a PC name (White name) I would love to see Dark souls for the PC. It would open up fantastic times for PVP. But the issue would be with the hacking and what not. Not to mention Namco does not seem to be a PC friendly company. But if it came down to it. I would re buy it and play more.  
 
And yes Rogue warrior quickly lost my favor after the quick look.

@The_Laughing_Man:

wait is 8½ hour work day alot.

i just read the first line and to be honest my first thought was that your complaining about nothing, i mean common that pretty common and 6 hours is plenty. my second thought was that i was being an ass so sorry about that.

i have never understood the U.S tax system, you know having to do all that papirwork once a year. all i have to do is make an estimate of how much i earn a year remove the deductible and give and estimate of how many % i have to pay and once a year i either get a check or a bill depending on how my calculation was. then i never have to do it again unless i earn more or my deductible changes wich i can do anytime and it takes 5min. anyway ill stop my tax rambling here

but what i really came here to write was congrats on post nr 10'002

wish you the best

Its because I am assigned all the closing shifts. Working 8 and a half hours near the time you sleep slowly wares on you. Not to mention my last day off was 5 days ago.  *The real issue is the people I work with do not pull their share. And I am left to do near 3 hours of work in about an hour and a half. And again. If its not done perfect. The shit is thrown on me* I am not saying any job is perfect or I am the only one who gets this *I am just trying to give people somthign to relate to. We all know that ONE person who you are stuck with who doesnt do crap but is still loved by mangers" 
 
As for taxes. From my pay check they take a certain amount and kinda bank it. In April I will submit some forms and get that " banked" money back. I am hoping it is a nice little bit.

I should also play more Skyrim, it almost feels rude to leave quests undone in such a game.

I remember going over 10,000 posts. I wasn't sure if I should be proud or ashamed. I said fuck it and took the high road and blogged about. Congrats and keep on gaming, working, and all that other stuff you want to do.

My true goal is to make enough so my mom only has to work part time till she can make enough to afford a place without me paying rent to help.

@The_Laughing_Man: It's a joke since I see you often on the IGN forums and people here don't really do the whole 5k, 10k, 15k post celebration threads. At least this is my first time seeing one of them.

This name comes from the Anime Ghost in the shell. It is a persona of someone who is the lead antagonist for most of the series.

I'm frankly surprised at how many people make blog posts about how many posts they've made. I don't think it's something to be proud of, or shared so publicly. When you post, people can see how many posts you've made. It's a badge of honor to wear humbly, not flaunt at meaningless milestones.

Also, "I take no responsibility for my grammar"? Is that not absolutely ridiculous? If not you, then who? If you decide to start with a disclaimer, you clearly know you've done something wrong. If you've taken enough time out of your oh-so-busy work schedule to write an unnecessary blog, you have enough time to proofread it.

I blame the turtles.  
 
Edit. 
 
Do you want a serious answer? 
 
I have Dysgraphia. Ive all ways had issues learning proper grammar and punctuation.  My hand writing is near un readable and in typing I often forget that stuff. So instead of writing that all out I make a funny quip about it.   
 
As for the milestone? I felt like a lot has changed in my life. I do not really get around to writing blogs. My life is not super interesting. Ive also never spent this much time on a single site. Most lose my intrest within a month. This is big for me. Ive talked to a lot of people and some might even be interested in stuff I have to say. If you are not then do not read. But thanks for reading.

I never expected to get so many posts. Thank you all. Maybe I should blog more often.

well congrats on your 10k post. i remember getting mine. it was pretty sweet.

Edited by crusader8463

I too am not far from that 10,000 post mark myself. I have never been the type to blog or make those post count milestone threads, I'm a hermit with no life so I never have much to post about anyway, but I feel like the big 1-0-0-0-0 will be the one I do it since it seems like a big deal. I would have been there a while back, but since I started working back in September my time to post on the forums has gone down to almost zero. One day in the near future I may get around to it. Knowing me I will forget to look and have a 10,058th post blog instead.
