In my defense before I even start this long post:
- I got the blogging bug after reading the lovely FFXIV glamour blog, Fashion Ninjutsu, lead by the lovely Alahra Valkaire. TODAY IS THE BLOG’S ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY SO GO CHECK THEM OUT AND WISH THEM CONGRATS! ^_^
- I’m still making my first post of the New Year in January so…. I win?
I know I know…. it’s been a long time. I’M SORRY! /grovels to the floor crying.
Please forgive this poor Pizza Maid for the lack in posts. Since September life has been a whirlwind (in a good way!), but sometimes finding the quiet time to blog is hard to find. Sam’s currently gearing up to record a new For The Lore Podcast episode so with coffee in hand, I can post! 🙂 Let’s see where to start…
HAPPY 2017 EVERYONE! With 25 days in, life is… well nuts! I refuse to go into world politics on the blog but let’s just say…. shenanigans I tell you. As for the HMIC in game though? Well…
I GOT PLASTIC SURGERY. IN THE FORM OF FANTASIA.
It’s true! Where once stood a Catgirl Maid named Alisha Rue, now resides a young Doman Au Ra named Tohru Arishima. Senpai please still love me. ❤
…. yes I’m watching Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid the anime, yes that’s where she gets her first name from, and yes I’ve been dying to main change to a Raen AuRa permanently for months now. #NoRagrets
But really though? I absolutely love this new look and have no plans to change Tohru-chan anytime soon. She’s just so cute, cuddly, chipper…. and has horns like her beloved Sidurgu. That’s all this girl really needs in life.
I’M REALLY AN HMIC NOW…. OF MY OWN FREE COMPANY.
This was a decision that had plagued me for quite a bit. Before anyone may jump to conclusions I do want to be clear on some things though. I’m still very much close and in touch with all of the original FC mates in Guardians of Vanadiel <GoV>. When it came time to make this decision to split from the FC it was not done with any ill or bad intentions. The main reason I chose to leave the FC and begin something new was merely because of my change of pace in life. For the time I do have to game, I actually really enjoy just leveling, crafting, working on the cafe and role playing. When I broke the news to them all of my FC mates were extremely understanding and were excited to see me start a new adventure for myself. We all still connect on the same linkshells, and they were elated at my idea of forming a sister FC to the original <GoV>, hence the name “Maids of Vanadiel”.
MoV is still very much in its humble beginnings, but with four members in tow now, a growing company chest, and folks who just like to relax and hang out over some tea, coffee, or pizza I’m so excited to making <MoV> a home away from home. In a pixelated MMO. Oh you know what I mean! 🙂
If you actually play Final Fantasy: Heavensward and are looking for an FC to call home on NA-Ultros in the Primal data center please look for Tohru Arishima in game and I’ll be sure to extend you an FC invite! /thumbs up
I’M AN EORZEAN PHOTOGRAPHER. STILL.
The newest patch implemented into the game, Patch 3.5 – The Far Edge of Fate has been both an exciting and rewarding patch for Eorzeans near and far. With the addition to the main storyline, new incentives included in PvP, the mounts, the minions, you name it – the most exciting addition this patch has offered is the new camera settings.
If you recall from a post I made many moons ago about the Pizza Maid Guide to FFXIV Screenshots taking screenshots has a system and process for me. With the new filters and lighting options made available now? OH MAN. WE’RE ON A WHOLE NEW PLAYING FIELD NOW. Very soon once I get the hang of the new settings you can definitely expect an update to the guide. Please look forward to it! 🙂
And for the moment, that’s what’s happening to this Pizza Maid (oh and I finally ran The Vault but let’s not talk about it because I’m still crying inside)! How is your 2017 looking so far? Do you have any exciting events coming up? Is there anything you’d like to see me post here at the blog? Please let me know in the comments below, and let’s dominate 2017 with pizza slices and high fives! ❤
