I don't know what to ask for; I'm quite content with everything I have & anything I need, I can kinda just buy at a cheaper price they can.

I have a car; I have a job; I upgraded my PC earlier this year; I got new clothes earlier this year; I just bought a new paintball gun & airsoft gun. I'm basically set for all my hobbies & my professional life is going well. I've kinda "reached inner peace" but like people want to get me stuff.

 

I don't like nonsense like plaques/shirts with sayings on them as they're a waste of money imo. I feel weird about having these first world problems. I hope I don't come off as "flexing."

Asked for a new GPU since my 370 isn't so good anymore (at least with the shit driver support that all GCN 1.0 cards have on Linux), got a 570 for $80 kinda early since it was a local deal and I had to act quick.

 

As for stuff I'll actually get on Christmas day I'm getting a "new" Focus FK-9000 (new to me, used sadly. At least it has genuine Alps and not clones, but whatever), a cheapo adapter for it, an extended mousepad (jeez these things are expensive lmao, they're like $30-50 lmao), and maybe something else idk.

Just some accessories for my car, namely a cassette bluetooth adapter and a phone holder for my car.

The same thing I ask for every year.

 

 

 

 

To take over the world.


Come Bloody Angel

Break off your chains

And look what I've found in the dirt.

 

Pale battered body

Seems she was struggling

Something is wrong with this world.

 

Fierce Bloody Angel

The blood is on your hands

Why did you come to this world?

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

Everybody turns to dust.

 

The blood is on your hands.

 

The blood is on your hands!

 

Pyo.

I rarely ask for anything, I'm probably the worst person to shop for since I never really get fired-up about gift-giving during Christmas. I just enjoy having some time off work to spend with family and friends. 

 

That said, right now I'm trying to get into film developing, so hopefully some equipment or gift cards to online or retail photography shops find their way under the tree this year.

I didn't ask for anything but I did a massive overhaul on my PC after running the same hardware for the last 6 years. ?

Damn! You'd be better off just going with a Bluetooth FM transmitter. No cables to worry about and they actually work really well. I use one in my car everyday.

They're Pinky and the Brain
Yes, Pinky and the Brain
One is a genius, the other's other insane
They're laboratory mice
Their genes have been spliced
They're Pinky, they're Pinky and the Brain
Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain, Brain
Before each night is done
Their plan will be unfurled
By the dawning of the sun
They'll take over the world
Before each night is done

To prove their mousy worth
They'll overthrow the earth
They're Pinky, they're Pinky and the Brain

Unbelievably, my car only has one cigarette lighter port, which means I kinda have to choose. My car has a decent cassette system anyways so why let it rot?

The transmitter also includes two USB ports if that's your concern.

So, since I usually just buy what I want (usually wait for a good sale or discount, or even buy used), I usually just ask for money for Christmas, and save it.  
This year my parents made me come up with a list, so I went pretty simple.

 

  1. Luigi's Mansion 3
  2. Retron 5
  3. bulk .308 ammo
  4. 5x1 HDMI 2.0 Switch

I think pretty simple list.  Nothing outrageous.  


Currently focusing on my video game collection.  Here's what I got so far.  

Keep in mind I'm still grabbing multiplatform games on PC, unless they happen to be cheaper on PS4 or Switch (such as RDR2 as of right now)

 

Currently Playing:  

  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - Switch
  • Super Mario Maker 2 - Switch

Games Beaten:

  • God of War - PS4
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Switch

(will be reset at the beginning of each month)

Put on hold:

  • Splatoon 2 - Switch

 

How many games I'm needing:

  • DS: 82
  • Wii: 38
  • 360/PS3: 84
  • 3DS: 60
  • Wii U: 6
  • PS Vita: 34
  • PS4: 20
  • Switch: 16
