Alert! : I finally like Mass Effect!.... WHA!?

After many disagreements between Josh about me not liking Mass Effect I can now say I am officially hooked! I finished the 1st one 3 days ago during my 5 days of being sick because I had nothing better to do and I must say it is an excellent RPG... I still like Dragon Age: Origins better but not bad. I have tried playing this game 3 separate times in the past year and something finally clicked maybe not being able to move due to being so sick or maybe 3rd time's a charm. In Mass Effect I played through as a female Operative which means I specialized in manipulating the environment along with using pistols. Mass Effect is about a female (or male) Commander Shepherd who becomes involved in the intergalactic council due to awesome achievements and becomes a Spectre. Spectres are there to get the job done... however they see fit and are above the law. You are sent on a mission to chase down a rogue Turian Spectre named Saren and while tracking him down a lot of other things happen and before you know it the Reapers (the voice of destruction) have returned. In the end you defeat Saren but the bigger threat are the Reapers and from that very vague description Mass Effect 2 starts. I have started Mass Effect 2 and I am currently 13 hours into it. Still great but overall I like story line and upgrades better in the first one. I feel as if Bioware simplified the customization options. It makes me happy that 2 lets you change armor color and each armor piece. Also,  it's great to see old faces back like Garrus and Tali! Kadin was a butt so see if I ever let him be my boyfriend again! I don't like Cerberus and I miss the Alliance but that a personal preference. I still have half of the 2nd one to play so for now that's all I have. Can't wait for Mass Effect 3 in March!

Wards Rd. SBux!

It's been an eventful few days in the Wards Rd. Starbucks world. One of the main water lines busted which completely effected our store. We completely closed Saturday and half the day Sunday. During the closing myself along with other awesome people did a mass store cleaning. Believe it or not I really enjoyed myself. I felt as if I regained my appreciation for Starbucks... especially my store and everyone who works with me. My manager re motivated me  to step up and get my Coffee Master certification back on track. I am thankful for my store and the dedicated and enthusiastic people working there. So many friendships have been made there! Love everyone at store 8775!

Gotham City Impostors

Just started playing Gotham City Impostors yesterday and as of right now... so far so good.It's a Light fun game. Team Bats against Team Jokers. It like turf wars like West side story (The Sharks and The Jets) or for those Twilight fans Team Edward or Team Jacob... or as my fiance like to say "Team guy who almost hit Bella with the van in the  first movie"... but that's beside the point. You get the idea. 

I enjoy the customization option with the weapon/gadget load-outs along with character customization. You start out with the very basics and as you play levels you unlock and earn coins to upgrade your character. Each character has different abilities for instance... the girl has faster speed and a guy who is strong but slow. I was impressed with all the customization due to it only being an arcade game but, then again, I haven't played too many arcade games.

As I continue to play I will update and get more info on the game! Stay tune!
Cupcake out!

Today was good. I went back to my old high school and visited the drama and band room. The memories started flooding back to me one by one. It's been 4 years since I've walked the halls as a student. I do miss those bittersweet memories. Band competitions, Gator Bowl, plays, meeting and loosing my best friend James, finding the guy I would be spending the rest of my life with, Josh. I still remember back when Josh and I first started dating, when we didn't even have the thought of marriage, James told me he was going to be my "Man of Honor" in the wedding. Even though he is no longer here physically he is still in my heart. I had a special kind of love with him. Not the "oh I'm going to marry him" love but the deep bonding love where I knew he would be my best friend forever and he would do anything for me. I love and miss you James and I know you would be right here with me as i prepare to get married reminding Josh like you did back in high school "If you break her heart, I will break your face."
