KGSP - Trees and Stuff

So considering how it's fall, the leaves are changing colours here. To make the most of the season, me and some of my friends decided to go to the arboretum here to check out the trees and stuff. You know you're running low on things to do when you decide to go look at that stuff.

It was actually pretty cool though. I didn't really know what to expect, but it turned out that it was pretty much a park that had a bunch of trees, flowers and greenhouses for people to look at.

Flowers arranged in the shape of horses and dragons.

It was a pretty nice park. Unfortunately we went maybe a week or two too late, so half of the trees were already bare or bareish. If we went a bit earlier I think it would've been really nice. But since the arboretum was actually pretty ok, we might go back in the spring.

In the greenhouses, they had a bunch of stuff too like a cactus exhibit and a tropical fruit exhibit. That was kinda cool. I don't normally see that stuff often, so it was cool to see random things like cacti.

This greenhouse reminded me of the pterodactyl cage in Jurassic Park.

After that, we went and watched the movie Interstellar. That was a pretty cool movie. I really enjoyed it. It was definitely one of those movies that made you think a bit. It was also really nice aesthetically so I appreciated that too.

Aside from that, this week was pretty standard. Blizzcon was this weekend so I set my alarm for 3:45 AM to watch the opening ceremony. Was totally worth it. I expected expansion news for Hearthstone and StarCraft, but I didn't expect them to announce a new IP.

Pixar level cinematic. Blizzard is just completely next level on this stuff.

I'm normally not a big fan of this genre, but I was hooked from the trailer alone and would probably give it a try. It's been 17 years since Blizzard released a new IP so I'm really interested to see what they do with it.

It's definitely a smart move. It's a completely different genre than what they're used to so they're expanding their portfolio. In addition it's not the most developed genre so they have a lot of room to experiment as well. Really excited to see what comes out of this game.

Have I mentioned how much I love the art style? (Blizzard)

I have an exam this week. Assuming I pass I'll be put into level 2 for my Korean classes, which should be exciting. It's also exciting because I get a few days off afterwards as a break, which is appreciated.

I really need to start studying though.
