Just been to a Magic the gathering draft which was pretty fun seeing as how I managed to latch onto a somewhat decent strategy. It meant that I won 2 booster packs (although my best card I got in the draft and then never used in the games). For the first time I felt like I would be ok with building a new deck (previously I’ve just sat with my Madness deck, which cost me nothing and was/is pri-deece) but then I remembered that I dont play magic.. the drafts are the only time I use them. I mean I’ve got 2 huge containers full of cards that I never use because of these drafts. I guess I just want a deck to go besides my madness deck but I also dont want to waste money buying tons of cards to fill up space.
Anyhow, uni has been well, Uni. I got a couple of low level assessment pieces that were due in last week and had to scramble to get them done. Well, it wasn’t hard just had to do them and I left no time for that. Still, got them done and it went well. And my presentation was apparently well done enough to attract a couple of people to join Courtney and I already! Seem like decent guys. Unlike the group I
have had for game design. Jasir and I conflicted on everything and, well this is purely emotion fueled speculation with no evidence, but I figure his artwork just won the other guys over so they were able to vote against me and that meant that Jasir is the good guy here. Upon looking into his idea I just had no faith in the idea. Not the direction they were taking it. After todays presentation we sat down with the lecturer and had a discussion about the whole thing and whilst it feasible for us to continue to work together, neither Jasir nor I wanted that to happen over splitting up. The lecturer did then decide that we should, if just simply because continuing together would see more fighting and bickering, to the point that it would impact our grade. So, Im a floating group member atm. Nothing to work on until she reshuffles the groups of 3 so that maybe they can become groups of 4 and then I’ll fit in one of them. Hopefully I’ll move to Tuesdays group as well.
Whats next, work? Work is fine.. nothing special there. I organised the first swapping of shifts that I’ve had to do. Pretty cool.. ish
Alright personal stuff. Well, I talked with Jaci. I saw her at Central one day while I was working and decided I’d text her then. Well, few days later I was able to. Went as well as you’d expect initially. Got angry. Insults flew (Personal favourite: “You should get yourself to a butcher. That way you can show him that cow’s dont have hearts”). After cooling off I managed to have a normal conversation with her and she (apparently) sent me $40 as a testiment that she will pay it back (I say apparently because her bank seems to be run entirely off 90’s cell phones, and hence takes like 4 days to transfer funds so I haven’t seen it yet). As with Courtney.. nothing spectacular. I kinda felt something while I was bored watching presentations in the aforementioned presentation section that I did well in. However, rushing ahead never solved anything in any kind of relationship. Sailing smoothly and silently. Well, undetected… Well its not like there is anything to detect but… oh you get my meaning. I’ll just keep doing what im doing.
