A couple of days ago, I went out with a couple of friends from my high school to Everett Mall to hang out. It was actually kind of fun.

Walking and shopping

We spent a decent amount of time walking around and shopping around at some stores. Some of my friends ordered boba several times, while I only got food at the end, where we ate at Jack-in-the-Box. They had an arcade there, which had some cool games, like Mario Kart, Minecraft Dungeons, but the one that stood out to me was Guitar Hero.

An arcade cabinet of Guitar Hero Arcade.


I tried to play the game a little, being familiar with some of the songs on there, but I put on a poor show in front of my friends because I hadn’t warmed up and the little notch on the yellow button was worn, so it was hard for me to get a mental image of where my hand was on the guitar lmao.

We all played some Minecraft Dungeons Arcade afterwards. It’s a 4-player game, which was perfect since we were a group of 4, so we played it for a few minutes and then walked out of the mall.

They had a HobbyTown there, so we walked in and checked out their selection of model kits. I was mainly interested in the Gundams though, and while I didn’t get any that day, I did get myself some Mr. Mark Setter for water decals that I never applied previously on my Gundams, so I’ll get to that eventually.

From there, we walked to Half-Price Books, which was fun to look through (despite their overpriced items), and I did spot an Evangelion DVD, which I wanted to get for my collection of EVA merch since it was one I didn’t own yet and it was SEALED, but…

Evangelion Platinum:05 for 60 bucks.

60 bucks? Yeah, no thanks.

After that, we went to Walmart to get some drinks and to Jack-in-the-Box to eat, where we sat and talked for a bit before we all split off and left.

It was a really fun time hanging out with some of my friends, especially since I hadn’t seen some of them since before COVID hit. I’m glad that I had the chance to hang out with them again, and I hope to do more in the future.

P.S. minor site updates

I added my button again in the Info page, but it’s not updated to look like the rest of the site so I’ll figure that out in the future. Also added a new Bed page and fixed some stuff with the Neocities redirect. Pretty much it.
