OH HEY I just remembered that I updated my site and added two new videos like a week or two ago. But forgot to make a post about it here. OOPS. My bad.

Part 1
Part 2

Michael and Taylor will have already seen all the stuff in these videos, so this is for everyone else.

Game page with some additional information

I've made some major progress since posting this stuff, so there may be another update soon once I can cobble it together into a presentable format. oAo;

And on another note,

I'd like to ask, one more time

for anybody who can see this site:

to help me fetch some sprites from it. The site is having some host problems; a payment was late, so the site was offline for a while; now, however, the bill is paid, but only some people can see the site; everyone else sees the "domain has expired" placeholder page.

If you can see this site, please please PLEASE help me get some sprites from it. There are some sprites I need for the game that are only on that site; I won't be able to work on the game at all before long if I can't grab some NPC sprites I need.

If you're willing and able to help, please refer to my last post for how you can.

Augh. This is frustrating.

So I got an email newsletter from Borders Rewards. The title said something about the year's biggest DVD.

Interested in a detached sort of way, I opened it.

It was about a midnight release party for Twilight.

Should I take the... enthusiastic response to my previous entry to mean that I shouldn't indulge in meme posts in the future?

Unrelated: What.

Since everybody ELSE on my friends list is doing it...

Another fun meme brought to you by rfreebern.

Hehe. The funny thing is, I don't even trick-or-treat. Freaky.

PS, what's up with the comment deficit of late? I barely get any comments on any of my entries anymore! ToT

I hate putting on a happy face when I feel like I want to cry. I REALLY do. And it's usually what I end up doing anyways. Dammit.

Long story short: something happened today. I can't say what it was; it's too personal to even put in a protected entry. But I will say this: Don't ever get heartbreak. It sucks.

I'll probably be OK, but I need some time to sort some things out with myself. I don't know.

revised and updated )


I haven't felt like updating for quite a while now (still don't), so I've got kind of a surplus of things to talk about. I've forgotten most of them, so this won't take long. ^^;;

First, took the SAT today. It was... meh. Not too difficult, but I had a hard time switching back and forth between English and Math mode constantly. I probably bombed the essay, since mine was really short. Eh, as they say, brevity is the soul of wit. ¬¬

Second, I'm dissapointed in you people. I expected more comments on my last two entries (now pretty old, but whatever), especially on the new layout. HINT. >o<

Third. My dad has restricted me from my room. Let me know if and when I start to appear mentally ill. Something's fixing to snap here.

Fourth, Taylor has gotten me to play World of Warcraft. It = win.

Fifth: I've been feeling kinda depressed of late; I'm not really in a good mood very much anymore. I think it's just the sum total of everything that sucks in the world and my life is weighing on me right now; we'll see if I can get it figured out.

And finally: I watched High School Musical and liked it. Screw you if you have a problem with that.

I've been thinking. You know how the phrase "teen angst" exists and is in common use in the english language? It's sort of a one-size-fits-all explanation for all the drama that teens go through in that critical seven-year period. Something to do with emotional and mental development, raging hormones and all that, no doubt. Got a histrionic, emotional teen on your hands? Oh, it's just that teen angst. They'll get over it, nothing to worry about.

What does that mean, exactly? Does the existance of such a phrase mean that all teens have an excess of drama, that hormones are entirely to blame? Does that mean that, were I an adult, I wouldn't observe half the grievances in my life as I do now? Am I being overdramatic when I observe how much my life sucks? It really does confuse me.

With this whole idea of hormones, I feel like my emotions are being played with. How many of them are real, and how many are hormonal outbursts? Who would LIKE being told that's all their emotions are? Who would LIKE being told that the grievances they experience are nothing but a part of growing up, to be grown out of, cast off, and laughed at later in life when looking through photo albums and attending high school reunions? They FEEL real, which makes it all the more confusing when you have an entire culture's worth of evidence that they're not. What's one to think?

You hear people take on the same sort of tone they use with "teen angst" when they mention "young love", too. What does that mean? You hear stories of how guys in ages past tatooed the names of their High School sweetheart to their arm or back or something (In fact, I've seen some present-day guys that have done just this), and ended up regretting it when the one they actually grew up to marry saw it. What should the countless number of teens in the midst of such "young love", as it's so tactfully put, make of that? Your love is fake? Your relationship is destined to fail? You do hardly ever hear of a successful High-School romance. The consensus seems to be that young people are never capable of understanding the concept of love in the first place, and that they'll only experience that "deep, meaningful love" later in life. What's one to think?

Are our minds really so governed by this monolithic "puberty" that we're not ourselves at all?
(EDIT: Perhaps I was exaggerating here a bit... Obviously one can't be completely governed by such a thing, but the question is, to what extent does it affect us?-- A question that can't be answered with any level of certainty, at least not here and now.)

I'm not sure I know where I'm going with all this. Maybe just a way of venting some troubled thoughts I've had of late. I don't really like the thought of any other force but my mind governing my emotions; it's been the source of quite the amount of unrest in the past months.

Hm. Funny thing... Now that I've typed out all my thoughts, a quote I heard recently comes to mind.
"Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young."
I'm not sure if this ties anything up or not, but it certainly seems relevant. I guess this is just a question I'm going to have to figure out in the years to come. Who knows? An answer may come even sooner than that.

Feel free to discuss your opinions on this, even though this is basically just a venting session. >.>;;

(EDIT AGAIN: That was kind of a hint that I wanted opinions. At least SOMEONE got it. ¬¬)

God, this "Merry Christmas" vs. "Happy Holidays" debate amuses me to no end. Seriously, if you actually care that much about the specific way somebody uses to wish you or others well, that's your problem. Heaven forbid people should be offended by the existence of other holiday celebrations.

Perhaps we should take a moment to reflect on what the season is really all about.

Perspective is everything, people!

Merry Christmas AND Happy Holidays,

Yay, everything's better. You can disregard the last entry. I'm keeping it there for archival purposes.

Also, I might scan in my senior pictures tomorrow.

Wow. I just found out today how much I really matter in the world.

I had planned a really fun and enjoyable day at the Puyallup Fair with my friends today. I was getting my senior pictures taken, and was running a little later than I had thought. I called Taylor a couple hours earlier to tell her I might be there by six, but wasn't sure if I'd make it. Traffic caused me to arrive about a half hour past that mark.

I had realized while the pictures were going on that I had left my free ticket at home. No big deal, I figured. I'd pay for a ticket rather than take the time to go all the way home and get it. After all, I didn't want to keep my friends waiting.

Imagine that.

Once I had paid the admission and entered the fair, I called Taylor to find out where she was.

"We're at the mall," she told me over the din of fairgoers' voices. "We left already."

I was dumbfounded. "Why didn't you call me and let me know?"

"I wasn't sure you were coming," she explained.

Apparently it wasn't important enough to be certain.

The signal died before anything more could be said. I decided to take off and wander aimlessly rather than waste the fair admission by leaving.

I suppose I should thank her. My head was getting a little big; I'd actually allowed myself to get the idea that I mattered, you see. But it's no big deal. I've grown very used to feeling insignificant, as it happens.

I'm sure you think I'm overreacting, Taylor. You would-- with that warm, fuzzy blanket of friends around you at all hours, I doubt you've ever felt unimportant in your life. But you guys were the first friends I had ever had. Oh, yes, how selfish I am to feel so rejected. Have I no shame?

But I suppose I'm a fool to act so indignant when all I want is an apology. I just hope that's not too much to ask.

Birthday celebration was yesterday... Nothing too big, but then that's the way I wanted it. ^^
Got gifts, of course, and they weren't bad, either. Got Viewtiful Joe for the PS2 (the situation's kinda complicated, gonna return the Gamecube one and not tell them that I ever got it), a Borders gift card for $20 (Wow, arent they generous), and a new watch, which I'm wearing right now and have synchronized to the school clocks. Very useful. ^^
Not really anything besides that.
