[ED] Dirty Bullet| Sunday Salutations

Good afternoon! Another week is about to end, and I have to say time is flying! How are we already in February!

This week was a bit crazy at work. Was stressed most of the time because of a big presentation one of my Project manager’s was having. I had to create several 3D views of interior spaces so the client could get an idea of what kind of space they’d have and actually the type of furniture we planned on using for their comfort. Sometimes, I think management doesn’t really have an idea how time consuming 3D visuals are and how much time modeling takes. But, thankfully I work fairly well under pressure and delivered the visuals on time. Basic, but clean and simple. Best I could do in that time crunch!

I also had to work Saturday, same project manager just wanted to get some solid footing and progress ahead before any hiccups could arise. Then wrote my OWLS post that was due that day, so please check that out when you get a chance!

Today’s OP comes from one of my seasonal favorites, Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens. I find it to run along the lines of Durarara! in the sense that everyone’s paths seem to cross one another while there’s something happening in the city they all reside it to tie it all together.

I felt it appropriate considering last week’s OP from Cowboy Bebop was also alongside the jazz genre. I was watching part of the latest episode during my dinner and had to stop abruptly to continue my OWLS post and because NBA Basketball. Speaking of basketball.

I can be a bit of a sneakerhead and well, the NBA player Paul George, had recently announced that he was releasing his latest shoe aptly named the PG2. When I saw the announcement, I got the feeling that I just HAD to have these. As a gamer, and a playstation girl at heart it was a NEED.

Paul George paired up with Nike and PS4 for a collaborative effort for this shoe, because apparently Paul George is a gamer (had no idea). The pricepoint of these shoes were fairly affordable (a low $110 for a signature basketball shoe – it still sounds like a lot, but there are more expensive ones, trust me). Unfortunately though, they were only giving these away via a raffle. I enlisted a few friends to wake up at 7AM to enter the raffle for my sake, and alas I still came up empty handed. I just happened to see it trending on twitter so I decided to check it out, some people posted that they won the raffle and were getting their sneakers, while somehow some users beat the system and were able to score over 10 pairs of the limited edition set (only 2,000 were made in production). People also started posting their winning bids on e-bay, an obvious decision since they will be rare due to the lighting elements and the barcode at the back of the shoe which gets a user a specialized PS4 theme. You wouldn’t believe the mark-up. The last time I looked it up on e-bay the shoes were going for $950.00. Can you believe it!? From $110 top $950 in a span of an hour. Insane.

I’m just going to hope and pray that they release a shoe to the general public that doesn’t have all the extra’s. I’d still want that colorway though.

Other than that, my weekend is not over, as this post goes live I will probably be visiting my Uncle who just got out of the hospital a few days ago (mild heart attack that required surgery). He’s my Dad’s bro, we’re going to visit to see if he’s recuperating well.

Anyways, I hope you guys have a great start to your week! Do you have any exciting news you’d like to share or celebrate? I’d love to hear from everyone in the comments! Whether bit or small, the little victories count! 🙂 Have a great week everyone!
