Hey everyone! We’re just EIGHT days away from the end of Blaugust 2015! I have to say it’s going to be sad when it’s all over, but finally I feel as if I have a lot of great ideas, tips, and projects and series in tow to keep the blog updated on a regular basis much like I did this month! I’m not ready to give my weepy thanks yous just (that’s for the 31st ^_~) but I really am grateful for all the bloggers and Belghast himself for taking the initiative and revving up a fun hobby for me.
What’s been going on for this head maid this week? Well let me tell you….
ZOMG I HAS A PIZZAMAID EMAIL
I DO. I CRACKED. I TOTALLY CRACKED. I was going to hold out until the end of the month, but I got paid on Thursday, I needed a fun organizational project to fulfill my tidy OCD, and— well I just did it. I’m so excited! If you’re a fellow participant of this year’s Blaugust, a fan, a friend, or just someone who wants to have a digital pen pal drop me a line in the comments and we’ll exchange emails!
FFXIV: Rue’s In A Rut
It’s true. I’m at odds with myself and am unsure what to do. Prior to the release of Heavensward I was adamant about two things. I told myself that based on the information released to us at various events and Live Letters Rue was going to A) Remain a catgirl and B) Level WHM to 60 first. Well…. it took two Fantasias but Rue HAS remained a Catgirl (I should know better than to think I could be anything but a Miqo’te). As for leveling WHM to 60? It’s slow… and SUPER GRINDY. I kne it wasn’t going to be easy, and to date she’s currently 54. But I feel… meh about it? I’m not sure. This weekend I toyed around on Scholar and Astrologian just for a change of pace. What do you think valued reader? Should I lay down my staff and dedicate my heart to the constellations? Do I abandon the Padjals before me and find a bond with the fairies? What’s a girl to do. Any and all input on this is welcome. 🙂
On the bright side though???
FFXIV: PIZZAMAID HAS INVADED JENOVA
It’s true! If you recall my post from a few days back, I was asked by a sweet Midlander Mom and daughters trio about visiting their main server of Jenova one day and opening up a pizza cafe there for them to enjoy. I decided this weekend I’d make a bold leap forward into making this dream a reality. I’ve got Miqo’tes, Au’Ri, Lalafellin and Roegadame toons, but I have yet to roll a Hyur or an Elezen. So? I made myself (or at least tried) to make a digital avatar of myself in Eorzea. I also decided on bard because I haven’t really played much DPS in this game and change is always good. Fun fact though? My career is also in the music industry so music + bard? It’s a no brainer. Is the resemblance even remotely close? Hehe.
I promise I’ll keep folks updated on this as it develops. I hope to make it part of an ongoing series of posts on Pizza Maid and maybe it’ll spur some ideas for you guys on how to open up a shop of your own in your slice of Eorzea. 🙂
LINE Play: A Midsummer Night’s In-App Purchase
I’m pretty sensible with regards to in-app purchases in mobile games. Mainly because the game serves as a form of company on my work commutes, I never try to delve too deep into the game and purchase currency in said game. Even with Sailor Moon all the items I own in my room I saved up the gems for from doing daily quests and whatnot.
AND THEN THEY GOT ME.
Along with their in game currency that is free to obtain from quests (called gems) there is an upgraded tier of currency called Premium Coins. Prices can range from $4.99 – $9.99 but the the coins can be used in premium gacha machines that are sometimes limited. As of yesterday they released a set called Mid-Summer Night’s Fantasy and it’s nothing but glorious fairy fashion items, animated backgrounds, and interior items for your home.
LINE…. DO YOU KNOW WHAT I’VE BEEN OBSESSING OVER FOR THE LAST MONTH? DO YOU KNOW? FROM BOOKS TO FASHION TO PLAYING A SCHOLAR IN XIV….. FAIRIES ARE MY NEW END GAME NOW. HERE JUST—- JUST TAKE ALL MY MONEY!
/hurls wallet to them
So yeah… I acquired 4 of the new 12 items in the collection. I somehow doubled my number of hearts from folks in game, and at 2:30am last night young girls were flocking to me sending em such kind words about my current avatar.
