Boredem reigns~ Part 3

My my. Yes, you don't have to tell me, I noticed on my own that I really am not making many posts lately. Heck knows why. Is it because I got vacation? Is it because I'm too busy? Meh.

To keep you guys up to date, I began to watch animes again, which I didn't do for quite a time, so I have enough stuff to watch for now. Besides the animes Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Umineko no Naku Koro ni, I will now watch Basquash! to the end and maybe even K-ON. Also, I played the game Borderlands a while, and, of course, still Grand Chase and League of Legends. I'd suggest if you haven't already, try out those animes and games if you don't have anything better in mind.

As for the rest of my life, sigh. I'm alone for 3 weeks now, means I gotta feed the cast, water the plants, buy stuff, wash the dishes, clean the house, feed myself and all those nasty stuff you don't wanna do, but have to. And school's starting at Monday. Boy, this'll be the hardest 3 weeks in my life. I got an F in maths lately and I basically have no idea how to come up with that, and I'm afraid my other marks aren't all that pretty as well. Heh, I'll make it through somehow... hopefully.

And this means we are at the end of today's boredom post. I hope you liked it, if not, meh, nobody writes any comments anyway so I'm used to just hear no feedback from you. Well, rather no comments at all than bad comments, like, how much this blog sucks.

Farewell, fellows!

The Kanavan Colosseum is open for BATTLE!
Kanavan Colosseum is a world premiere system of competitive PvP ranking that utilizes skill-based ratings similar to the "King of the Hill" tournament.
This feature may only be accessed from the Colosseum server, a special new server in which there is no shop, no dungeon, no chat, just BATTLE!
To enhance the competition and increase the pool of available competitiors, this server will only be open from 1 PM to 10 PM PST/PDT each day. However, during this open beta, the server will be available ALL THE TIME for testing, so get in there and BATTLE! (notice a recurring theme?)
To play, click the BATTLE! button; this will place you in a room with a randomly seleced opponent. You will not be able to see your opponent's character or stats.
All matches are fought on a random map with a format similar to tag match which requires players to select three characters (you can pick the same character multiple times though).
Ratings will be reset every week, with prizes given to the best gladiators and gladiatrices.

Boredem reigns~ Part 2


Aye. As promised here is my second boredom part. Though I am not as bored as I was in the first one, I do have many things to talk about, most regarding my current situation in life. Well, as some of you still know I was pretty much a single who didn't get the girl he loved and all that stuff. Well, guess who got a girlfriend.

Her name is Natasha Przybyla, and I know you do not know how to pronounce "Przybyla", and I beg you, don't try. It's polish and the "Prz" is pronounced as "Psh", go figure that. However, she is 18 and lives, just like me, in Germany, kind of far away though. Still, we intend to meet at Christmas, and my best friend, Mirodir, intends to come then, too, since we all know each other. At this point I'd like to say, yes, his blog does suck, but I didn't make that much effort into a picture for nothing, so go visit his blog! xD. The same goes for my channel, which basically almost dies away, and, of course, Jenny's blog, she is my mentor after all.

Anyway, it's weird to admit but I do love Tasha. I never felt something like that, I did feel feelings close to it, but I never felt as good as with her. And those who think I'm too kindhearted now are probably just jealous of me because of their loveless life.

So much to say about Tasha, my real life is pretty much okay as well. I still do suck in school sometimes, just got an F in Maths, but besides that I'm not the nerd I'm used to be. Well, as long as I'm in school. Of course I still just sit on the computer all day, and I'm happy that this fact won't change for a long time.

Enough of this chit-chat, I'll keep you guys updated about me, my life and Tasha, and of course about my internet doings, so keep cool!

Lass Skill Tree Announce!

With the newest upcoming Skill Tree Announce for Lass, Ntreev also changed Grand Chase's homepage. I pretty much like the new layout, it's a bit too white and stuff, but it looks more pro.

However, since the Homepage isn't fully worked out yet, you cannot read the patch notes for some reasons, so I can't copy paste them and have to write them myself.

For the time between 10/7 and 10/13, every player who plays Lass, and any player who plays in a Lass team, will receive a 30% Experience bonus. Any player who unlocks Lass in that time period, or already has unlocked him, will get a Lass signboard accessory. Also, the shop has for a limited time only special Power-Up packages for Lass and all of his jobs to make it easier to do a Job change. Cash only.

Oh, and they have some cash event going on, you'll get somewhat amount of cash for free if you spent I think about 30$ into that payment option, I don't know. Not really interested in it anyway. Check out the homepage for more infos.

I am back!


Rio, rise! That's right folks, your prince is back!

How come? Well, today, my computer got repaired, which means I am goddamn happy and there's so much stuff to do which I wasn't able to do the last weeks. Geez, I can't describe this feeling.

Anyways, I'll keep you guys updated about stuff I'm doing just as you all are used to, so cheer up!

For now, that's all I have to say, I do have so much things to do and so less time, but I just wanted to tell you guys what happened so you can stop worrying, which you actually probably didn't anyway.

Sincerely, Rio
