Hey all, how's it going?

I'm doing well at least. I actually look forward to each day now, and though I'm still struggling to get to bed anytime before midnight, I'm feeling quite well when I eventually wake.

Today, my Arcade Block arrived. It's one of those subscription things you get once a month, and each block contains random stuff. My brother's came with a Mario shirt, a Starman stress toy, a Minecraft surprise bag, some Team Fortress 2 wrapping paper, a DOTA 2 headband, and an Ezio vinyl. For $40 AU including postage and handling (I forget what the US price I paid was), you get approximately $60 worth of stuff (by what we'd pay here in Australia to get those things separately). And the boxes are so random that I found in mine, a Mario shirt, a Starman stress toy, a Minecraft surprise bag, some Team Fortress 2 wrapping paper, a DOTA 2 headband, and an Ezio vinyl. Heh. I'd initially thought each box was packed at random, not each month's box is pre-determined but you don't know what you'll be getting. Not that I mind.

You can get five different blocks at this stage: the basic one (contains everything generically geeky, good for Marvel/DC or Doctor Who fans), the Arcade one (vidjagame-specific), and junior ones for boys and girls. So, month-by-month, I think I'll be replacing my old shirts in my wardrobe with the ones I get from the various packages I receive. And, these boxes could be fantastic for gift ideas if I get something I don't really like. Most of my friends play video games, so I'm sure I could find someone who'd want an item I'm not keen on.

Pokémon-wise, I've abandoned Y for now and continued Alpha Sapphire. I've now passed two people using StreetPass. How exciting! :P I'm six badges into the game, and I'm starting to feel as though I'm being handed stuff and not having to work. I mean, the Exp. Share (formally Exp. All) now distributes experience like the original item did back in the day, so your party's guaranteed to get stronger even if you only use one critter. Berry trees now offer up to 12 berries when harvested, so I'm finding I don't need to run around and collect berries each day, I can just use the new berry farm location (east of Mauville) to farm. I've made my secret base there, as a reminder where the farm is. And Latias... Wow, did not see that coming. No spoilers for those who aren't up to that stage yet.

I've been back into World of Tanks, and have swung over to a new SEA account to see what I can do with what I've learned from my US games with :icontbolt:. I must try and catch him online at the same time when I have a free day so we can have a few more rounds. My TD skills have improved significantly, and I've fallen in love with the T-26, an equally fast and agile Tier II. Lag (I get 200-300 ping on the US servers, and around 300 while using the SEA version) means I can't make an effective scout in the tank, since it's not as fast as the M2 Light or the Panzerkampfwagen II, but I can't argue with that gun. It's the perfect second-line scout/sniper.

I recently got Company of Heroes 2 and have also been absorbed in it, however, I'm finding it's not a game I can just play hours of in one sitting any more. I get tired and start making costly mistakes, like sending a sniper through an artillery barrage I'd just ordered. It probably doesn't help that I'm normally playing up late.

I dunno if I'd said or not, but as well as Speedy Delivery, I've also finally finished the Battle for Dyndengar. It's good, I'm done, forget trying to rewrite it again. It's had enough.

I've also caught up on my Good Reads challenge, but not to the level I wanted. I'd aimed for 50 books by the end of the year. I've read 36. That's significantly more than I've read any other year since '99/'00, and there's probably 5-10 I haven't included 'cause they're webcomics... Ah well. Work did that to me. I had a routine, work changed it. I now have a routine again, but am finding myself unable to sit and read for long periods of time... and a good writer/editor MUST be well-read!

December 14th marks 4 years on Deviant Art... But I dunno if I'm gunna be around much in 2015. I love drawing, and I love artwork, but I lose a lot of time to browsing through images, and it's becoming a chore... I'll post up some contact details toward the end of the month, as one of my resolutions is to significantly cut down my web-time. This excludes Skype, Steam and Facebook, though, things I use all the time for networking.

I will still be posting art, but at this stage, mostly just on Fur Affinity.

A little gift for :icontheartisticpony:, whose cat isn't in the healthiest way at the moment. Thinking of you both.

Part of a conspiracy which included :iconfingrprints:, :iconninjatanner:, :iconalbert-gurl:, :iconplenilunij-lee:, :iconnotsun:, :iconmelianofmist:, :iconjblak13:, :iconmistgod:, :icondakotawolf1996:, and of course :icongneiss-chert:

Wow, it seems putting my foot down has finally got me what I was looking for in my job. Having Fridays for editing and proofreading (when it's available) and being unavailable ALL day for cleaning has given me an offer for more permanent work, three to four hours every couple of days. Routine shifts I turn up for, go out and do, come back and unpack from, and go home. With the occasional night shift thrown in, of course; I consider myself on-call from Monday to Thursday.

It's taken five months, but, I'm starting to feel like things are back under my control. Well, to a degree. :D I learned recently I can't make plans, as they never work out. I'm just going to need to go with the flow, even if it means I'm unreliable and unpredictable. But anyway...

You may've seen I posted a Friend Code for a 3DS yesterday, and you'd be right if you guessed I bought a 3DS. Only game I wanted and couldn't get was Black 2. I'd decided not to worry about getting both versions of a game these days, as I tend to give the partner game to my brother... And he doesn't have a 3DS, so there wasn't much point in getting them. He agreed, as neither of us has finished a Pokémon game since before the DS games came out (not sure about him, to be honest, but my last completed game was FireRed in '04). But hey, all my friends had a 3DS and Pokémon with them on Sunday, and I had money in the account, so why not?

I've got my shiny Beldum in Sapphire, but I've been playing Y more. I've yet to try White 2.

And yes, there's more artwork to come, I just need to get off my arse and do it.

What could this mean? Try adding it to your 3DS and see who pops up.

My name's Vega Strypes. I'm a 26-year-old male from Victoria, Australia. I spent most of my youth writing or drawing, and not much has changed since then. I'm a furry (as one may expect on a site like this). I tend to feel like I should have been born (or may have been in the past) a cat. Of course, I appreciate my thumbs and fingers, so I'm not really complaining about the form I've currently got. ;) I imagine it'd be hard to tap away or hold a pencil with paws. But anyway...

I'm a fantasy writer. I've got a few pieces published, but nothing on a large scale just yet. I'm aiming to get there eventually. One step at a time. I draw as a hobby. I prefer trades to taking commissions, but can be talked into a trade that may involve art for something-non-art. I don't write stories as trades!

I'm pansexual. I prefer females, but am open to finding love in another male. The way I see it, love is love, and you don't need to have opposite bits to love them. As far as religion goes, I consider myself pagan. Politically, I'm left-winged. I'm a smart-arse, be warned. I'm quite sarcastic and can say mean things in humour. Return the favour and we'll get along just fine. I believe one needs to be able to laugh at themselves. I'm also a major flirt at times, but I'm a one-person kitty when I fall for someone.

Feel free to leave a comment or send me a message. I usually always respond within a few hours. I don't bite... unless you want me to. ;)
