Christmas and back and forth

So last Thursday evening, exactly one week ago on the 21st, I went up to Umeå to celebrate Christmas with my family. It was super chill, just the four of us plus Snax. We ate tons of food, played alot boardgames and video games and just had a great time together. I barely left the couch for 3 days lol. Me and mom watched some movies, some youtube vids like we always do together. 


Half of Snax looks so much like Sasha...but she's 100x crazier.

On Tuesday evening I met up with Dena and we just catched up and re-watched Descendants 2 again (it's so awesome omg). Then yesterday, on Wednesday, I had lunch with my cousins together with my family. It was nice that I had some time over so I could see them too.
I came back to Stockholm super early this morning, so I went straight to bed and slept for like 4 hours until I decided it was time to go up...I am spending the rest of the week here in Stockholm (as well as New Year's Eve) and then I'll go back up to Umeå on Monday for 10 days. This going back and forth is a bit annoying only because it's time consuming, otherwise it's alright...getting a little bit of both is great!

Episode Ignis (aka episode return of ANGST)

Okay so this is purely a post about me ranting about the new FFXV dlc so, if you don't care just skip. Spoilers ahead (kinda, a bit at least).
SOooooooooooo....Square Enix....I am upset. Not because Episode Ignis wasn't good (it was amazing) but because last night was like a rewind to when I finished the game back in whatever (earlier this year). Like.... ofc it wasn't AS BAD as then (oh god never again plz) but still.... it cleared up so many things and but also made me feel... I don't know, sad af? The alternate ending.... I can't believe I am saying this, but I prefer the OG ending. Along with the angst and tears. Like, I will 認め the alternate ending as just that, an alternate ending. What COULD'VE happened. But... due to made choices, it didn't. People can choose whatever they want but for me, it's only the OG ending that I will...認める。I do feel like it was a biiiiiit shitty of SE to wait an entire year to release this. Like, this episode was MAJOR and filled in so many holes in the og storyline. Not saying that episode Gladio and episode Promto were unimportant but like...this episode was just on a different scale, you know. 
and Ignis..... with his hair down....boiii. Not cool. His and Nocts relationship just got so much deeper in the episode and truly showed their special bond AND I'M JUST
But yeah whatever, I am a mess. I honestly couldn't sleep last night because of this dlc and when I actually fell asleep I just dreamt about the chocobros....uuuuugh.
There we go, rant over. 

Catching up~

Yesterday I actually went outside 3 times! Crazy, right? First, I went grocery shopping in the morning. Then, around noon I went for a consultation about a tattoo I wanna get next year. Theeeen in the evening I FINALLY met up with my dear Alona again. We've been trying to meet up for like...3 months. It's just ridiculous but that's the adult life I guess. But yes, we met up after she got off work and went to Mariatorget to get some food at Barobao. I haven't been there in like... 1 ½ year haha. Like, it's REALLY good....but not actually worth the money in my opinion. But since neither of us were starving, it was a pretty good choice I think. So we sat there a while, catching up and talking about EVERYTHING. 

Then we went to Blå Fotöljen for dessert. Also a place I haven't been to in like forever... 
It was such a great night. I've been missing her so much...I hate not being able to see my friends as often as I like. But these kinds of catch-up nights are awesome <3 


Soo....I keep getting older lol. 
Yesterday morning, I slept in and when I woke up I talked to Mom on the phone and then I chilled in bed a bit before I got up to make some tea. I am currently dricking a strong Assam tea every morning, which is just lovely. While drinking that, I watched some Dan & Phil vids (bless gamingmas) and then I made some sandwhiches and then american pancakes with maple suryp and bacon. It was lit. 
Then I played some Horizon Zero Dawn until I met up with Anton at around 14:30 in Hornstull. We bought some snacks then went back to my place to play some RE6. We were at the final chapter with Chris and Piers but...we got stuck at the boss. So we had to stop at around 16:30 to go and catch the bus to Fridhemsplan. There, we had booked a table at Tiflisi, a Georgian restaurant where I've been wanting to go for ages. We ordered a dish each and then their cheese bread to share. Everything was DELICIOUS. I need to go back there.

Anton bending down to be as short as me amused me...

After dinner we went back to my place and continued playing RE6 (we finally got passed the boss and continued with Jake and Sherry's campaign) while snacking on ALL THE SNACKS. We played until like 23:00 and then we turned the PS4 off and just sat on the floor chatting until after midnight when Anton took the train back home. 
It was such a nice birthday. And thanks again for all the birthday wishes etc. I am so lucky to have so many sweet people around me, both far away and close. Thanks you all <3 

One OK Rock concert~

Woaaah....last night was amazing! 
The concert was at Debaser Strand which is like 4 min walking distance from my apartment. Nice. So I got there at the venue a little bit more than 1 h before they opened the doors. So I was just standing there, freezing like crazy for over 1 h hahaha. But yeah, it could've been worse. After getting in and hanging away my coat, I realized how tiny the venue was. I went up and stood right in front of the sound....managing...desk...thingy on the right side of the floor and stayed there during the entire concert. I had a pretty good view of the stage and I didn't have to be all squished between people. It was great!
The opening band, Crown the Empire, was actually really good! I was like "oookay....I see you". Kinda shocked. But was time...for One OK Rock!!! Like always, seeing people who's music you've listened to for years right in front of you is quite surreal. Like...they are actually there. Just a few meters away. I could see their faces and eyes clear as was crazy! I remember thinking like "wow Taka looks just like he did when I started listening to them 10 years ago". That man hasn't aged. And his stage presence and movements are just as how I've watched on clips on youtube etc. 
So mostly they played music from their latest album, "Ambitions". They played my favorite song from that album "bedroom warfare" and then some other random songs. No songs from the first albums which are the ones I really like though...not that I expected them to play them haha. But the played "the beginning" which was LIT AF. Overall, I am so happy I finally had the chance to see them live because daaamn they're good live. Taka has such an incredible voice it's actually ridiculous. It was such a great concert <3 


Where are the braves?

Yesterday I FINALLY started playing Horizon Zero Dawn. The main character, Aloy, is so freakin' cool and I can't decide who she reminds me of...I think some of her features might remind me of Buffy...or she reminds me of her just because they're both badass women.
I went to bed last night with a playtime of 7 ½ hours. Not too bad. I really like it so far. Both the gameplay, the story and let's not forget THE GRAPHICS. It's absolutely breathtaking.
