GARECAVE: SUPER HOLOGRAPHIC EDITION, XVII - EXTENDED UNRATED CUT WITH THEATRICAL VERSION INCLUDED
OH SHIT THIS IS LIKE A 1/8192 CHANCE SHIT YOU BETTER GRAB THIS UP HOPE YOU HAVE YOUR MASTERBALL
OH FUCK CRITICAL HIT OH NO
WAIT IT HAS STURDY YOU’RE GOOD. IT LIVED WITH ONE HP.
CATCH THAT SHIT. YOU CLAMORED FOR IT AND NOW IT’S HERE WEEEWOOO
Alright, alright; since it’s been a long time since a really in depth Garecave, it might be a long ride- so strap your asses in, aw yeah. It’ll probably also cover some stuff I’ve went over in previous Garecaves, but oh-fuckin-well you wanted it so you DEAL WITH HOW I WRITE IT
Where oh WHERE do I start? Well…
I’ve probably covered it before, but I no longer go to school at ETSU (or anywhere, in fact) but that’s due to a big bunch of bullshit. Essentially the school audited me for my PARENT’S finances, asking question they had no clue how to answer. The school was of no assistance despite several visits and emails and in the end the mental stress tore me down enough that i dropped out for this semester. I probably won’t go next semester, either, and will just try and set something up for next school year. I really want to move out first, though, and figure out where I want to go to school, because I feel like if I get into school, I’ll have no chance of moving out. I don’t know. I also still want to be a Biology teacher, but that puts a stricter loop on my options. That’s something I’m struggling with.
Due to not being in school, I have no dorm to live in during the semester since I’m not…uhm…in school, obviously. So I live with my parents again, in Kingsport, which I did in between semesters anyway. I can’t complain, I suppose, free rent and no real “bills”, but my parents are overbearing and just generally aggressive towards me. They belittle me for my interests and harass me about anything, and always assume I’m doing something “bad”. Needless to say, I don’t really feel at home. I just kind of hide in my basement to stay away from them for the most part. I want to move out, but Johnson City’s too far for my current job (explained more on in a second) and the rent around here is outrageous because there’s no competition. I also have no one I’m comfortable enough with rooming with to cheapen rent by both of us paying because my few options I would consider are taken up/unavailable/female (this one sounds stupid, I know, but my parents would never help me financially if I needed it and lived with a woman “outside of marriage”. it’s fucking stupid but I have to play life smart sometimes and I’d rather have a safety net). So there’s that.
After that, I quit my job at McDonalds since it was in Johnson City, which is where ETSU is and since I wasn’t going to school there it made no sense for me to travel back and forth for minimum wage. I now work at the Mustard Seed Cafè in downtown Kingsport, which is pretty nice. It has nice hours (in both meanings, the place is never open past 4pm anymore and opens around 10 on most days, and I work nearly every day) but those nice hours also have taken a toll on me. I get off work early enough to theoretically hang out with friends and things like that, but have to get up early enough that I really never get to do anything because they all live in Johnson City/don’t talk to me anymore/work until too late in the evening/work too late and I can’t spend the night/some other combination of stupid shit that makes it generally difficult. Hence me saying I’m rather lonely anymore. School was busy and there was stuff to do, but at least there were people around and nearby that I could hang out with. Other than that fact, I’ve only had two off days in the past three weeks because nearly every day I have off I get called in. It’s nice to make money, though, and I need it so I can eventually get out of my parents house. Another sort of “I wish it was different but I can’t really be mad about it and will just have to change it” sort of thing.
Since everyone in the world apparently is so curious about my relationship status, yes, I guess I don’t really have a “girlfriend”, and most people’d define that as single. But it’s not true. I’ve just not…called her that, I guess. It’s somewhat strange and maybe a little silly, and probably doesn’t make very much sense…One night, after an ask was sent to me on Tumblr- an ask in which someone asked me to review Portal, a certain someone was snooping in the Portal tag and found my review and messaged me about it. Due to that random bit of chance I found out there’s a fantastically adorable and brilliant; not to mention sweet, girl who lives in Minnesota (who happens to go by the name Andi and has a Tumblr blog which is titled cephaloportals so you should TOTALLY go follow her cute self) who I very much adore after bonding over books of texting, probably too much flirting for our own good; Animal Crossing town visits, Facetimes, phone calls and Skype, even snapchats and voice recordings; and now it’s grown to accommodate some Pokèmon battles because sweet zombie JESUS do I get obsessed when a new Pokèmon game comes out. She also thinks I’m cute for some silly reason, so that’s absolutely wonderful considering I think she’s gorgeous. And she somehow manages to endure my endless cheesiness. That… and she likes my jokes. Most of the time. The only thing that’s lacking is I haven’t been with her in a physical sense yet- no hugs, cuddles, kisses, or anything, it’s all virtual; but that hopefully won’t be for too long. So now you know, you most curious people. I never really understood why you were so interested, but now the seeming-ocean’s worth of people will be satisfied. I hope.
Speaking of Pokèmon, on the stereotypically included vidya game end of things, I’ve got Pokèmon. I’ve played the shit out of and adore it like crazy. It’s fantastic and just what I wanted. I still am. I started with Y, beat it twice; once normal and once as a mono-bug run. Then I started breeding on it (got a few Pokèmon and then decided to breed a Battle Maison team, so no, I’m technically not geared for a full on REAL ASS BATTLE, but I’d probably still battle if anyone just wants to), and I couldn’t resist the temptations…so I now have X and have started a Nuzlocke run on it. It’s going okay, I’ve lost a lot of Pokèmon but the routes have been plentiful and I almost have another team now. I’m also excited for LoZ: A Link Between Worlds, and am buying it once it comes out too. Other than that I probably won’t purchase much in the way of games this year. I’m not getting either of the Xbox One or the PS4, at least not yet, so that counts them out. Next year will be a different story. I hope.
I dunno. I guess this about wraps it up. Hopefully you guys enjoyed this little purview of my little old Garebear life in little old hicktown Tennessee. I love you all. I’m hopefully going to post a bit more on Tumblr now since I’ve been feeling better and less like curling up in my bed forever watching Top Gear and playing Pokèmon. I’ve missed you guys.
Stay fresh, followers. c: <3
