Today was uneventful. Most days seem to be that. I need more friends or something… I feel so socially inept these days. Oh wait, that’s nothing new, I generally feel socially inept. I wanted to ask Leann if she’d let me sing with her sometime, since I’ve never really had a chance to sing with people and stuff… but I couldn’t actually ask. I felt like a dolt. Must get over fear of people.

We played some Neverwinter – the latest Dreamcatcher module came out, so we played that and wanted very much for the next one to be ready now. Next up is the new Penultima module. And eventually I’ll finish the single player… just got too tied up in Ryall to do the single player. And note to Ryall people: yes, Marduc/Kabal can be just as annoying to play with in person, with the going invisible and disappearing ahead of the party and such. However, it’s easier to kick his ass for it when he’s sitting behind you. He defends himself by saying he’s playing in character, which forces Adam and I to not play in character, because if we were playing in character we would boot him from the party and kill him on a regular basis. I do love Vachel, but damn he can get annoying to play Neverwinter with sometimes. He takes the fun out of the module by telling you what’s coming up next… I’d like to be surprised, really.{/geek rant}

Yes… I have no social life, and all I can come up with to talk about in my journal is Neverwinter. Go me! Still no livejournal users in New Liskeard other than me.

It seems that I’m not catching the evil flu that Adam has had for the past week and a half. I have instead contracted some form of dry cough and sore throat. I have no idea what to take for such a thing, so I’m just taking VitC and my usual multivitamin.

Holy crap I’m boring!

Adam said he was proud of me for the Art Show, and for playing at the opening. It was a good thing for me to hear, since I’ve felt so invisible lately. I definitely don’t seem to have much of a support crew beyond Adam, his parents, and my perpetual and much-loved supporter Ms. Sands. I should be happy with being proud of myself, but I am forced to admit that some recognition or support from friends and family I respect and like to hear opinions from would be nice. But enough pouting and whining. Adam’s proud of me, and that makes me feel better… at least I know he’s paying attention. I really do feel that whole ‘out of sight, out of mind’ thing too much up here.

    Trust me Jennylee.. I’m far more socially inept that you. At least you go out.. My idea of a fun day away from Mike at the moment is spending time scaring the shit out of stores with Craig (my boss, and what I’m doing tomorrow)
    I wish I had a game to play and time to play it in! 🙂

    I’m glad you’re not getting siiiicccckkk.. being sick is painful, I’ve been telling myself all winter.. “Can’t get sick..gotta work…” Watch when the spring comes though, I’ll come down with pnemonia or something.

    I wish I could take photographs the way you do… and sing… and play the guitar….
    my talents are so few, so I’ll have to just admire you for doing things you love…

      You have many talents that are beyond my comprehension. Like that whole computer programming thing… and that’s even a marketable one! I doubt I’ll make a living playing guitar in my life. Nor do I really want to…

      You know you’re still quite welcome to come up here anytime, eh? 🙂 Oh, and we’ll be down the week of Passover (which I think is the same week as easter) so hopefully I’ll see you then.

        Actually I really suck at the computer programming thing.. I like math and algorithms and stuff, but the “syntax” in computer languages is garbage to me. I don’t think the computer languages are very intuitive. C is a “*” ‘s and “&” ‘s for pointers ick ick ick…..
        I could never be a programmer… It doesn’t matter that I’m socially inept, and don’t really even “like” a lot of people. I still crave talking to other people, I couldn’t sit in a corner, in a cubicle somewhere and program all day. I’d DIE.
        I still don’t know what my “path” in life is…. Somewhat depressing

          I don’t know my “Path” either. I think the whole path thing is a useless piece of crud that movies and television have been telling us forever we need to have or we shall never have purpose. Have to wonder why we can’t just live…
