He is too old

Posted by pandatr0nics on 04/24/2009

So I am gearing up for saturday as I get ready to turn 25.

I wonder where the time goes really ^^; I feel like things move so fast and you don’t really know if you’ve accomplished all the things you really wanted to accomplish in a year.  Oh well I guess I better finish getting all set up for the party?

Lost in thoughts

Posted by pandatr0nics on 04/21/2009

I recently lost a member of my family and I realised that sometimes life throws these difficult challenges at you.  When I was there at the viewing looking at this proud person who was once so full of life and laughter, was now dormant and peaceful saying everything that they wanted to say to me simply by laying there as I looked at them.

I think about the times shared and wonder about my own life, would people gather for me and shed tears, tell stories, and talk about me the same way they could talk about this person.  When I gazed upon this person my thoughts could only ask questions about whether I’m enjoying my time and doing what I love.  It is hard to see the passing of a loved one, whether you knew them well or just a little bit, whether you intended to or not I think that all people would shed a few tears.

Times like these you really stop and think to yourself, “Am I really happy with my life?” Do we really take the time to stop and enjoy simple things, little things that most people assume to be trivial, like visiting friends from time to time, or having nice time with your family during dinner.  Having big success stories are great, but to many it’s those little things we remember about the life of both friends and family alike.

I hope that I may be able to share more stories with you, because no matter how you look at things in life we all have a clock that stops and we never know when that clock decides to do so.

Week 1: What’s in your Handheld?

Posted by pandatr0nics on 04/19/2009

Hey, Pandatronics here!

It’s been a long week or so without an update ^^; I know you want to call me a slacker, but I’ve been planning a few things to maybe catch some more readers.  I have decided that for a month I will roll a weekly column called “What’s in your Handheld.”

Not really a gamer? Let me help you out; Handheld is basically just another term for a portable gaming device.  Why am I doing this? I noticed that many people whether they openly show it or not, carry a handheld system and I was curious as to what others might be playing as well as sharing what I just happen to be playing at the time.

Without further ado, What’s in your handheld?

For me this week it is Chrono Trigger for the Nintendo DS.

Here is a quick video for the game if you have never played or heard of it before.

So, I’ve just recently started this up and not many of you know (whoever happens to be reading) that for the past 2 months or so I’ve had a slightly mishap with an ear infection. While the infection has cleared up the after effects are still there leaving me with very minimal hearing.  It really has made me realize how much harder everything is when you can’t hear the world around you clearly.

Imagine for a moment waking up one morning and all you could hear are faint sounds, not even your own footsteps.  You would probably think you were still half asleep right ? It happened that way some early morning in february, where I had woke up to start the day only to find that I couldn’t hear anything around me clearly.  Since then after visiting the doctor many times I am drawing closer to June when I can see the hearing specialist again to determine what actions they will take with my ears.

Watching anime has never been so hard in my entire life.

Syaoran pizza?

Posted by pandatr0nics on 04/09/2009

Today was an excellent day outside, clear weather, sun was shining and quite a few people were out and about in the scarborough area. This proved to be an excellent day to bring out the Syaoran costume from last year’s Anime North and take a stroll around in my area of scarborough.  I, however found it difficult walking around since I’ve had an ear problem as of late which has pretty much made me lose my sense of balance. Still, I managed to get by without looking like I was drunk at midday!

Along my little stroll around the area I found myself hungry so I stopped in at a local Dominos and picked up a pizza! If I had my camera with me I would have taken a picture of the shopkeepers face. Simply because he had this look of utter confusion as a large cloaked boy wandered into the shop on a regular thursday at lunch time. Some ladies from the nearby day care also dropped in to order some lunch and had a very similar look on their faces. I recieved the pizza and left the shop with a smile as I proceeded to head home.

It was a great day, but now I’m certainly tired as I was on my feet for too long. I hope i can get this ear situation solved so I may get back out there and do everything I used to be able to do!

Weather blues

Posted by pandatr0nics on 04/06/2009

so over the weekend I had been planning a cosplay outting around my area to do shoppings and banking…those things, but today arrived and it was not only raining but snowing too! I guess romping around my area in Syaoran outfit will have to wait for another day..

I’m a sad pandatronics :(

I was speaking with the girlie just now about food stuffs and she seems really excited to cook something for me, but also unsure of what to cook because we have different taste in food!  I’m sure we’ll think of something …right ? ^ ^;
