    Nerdtendo First of all, all of my internet was turned off so I don't even know how it was downloaded on to the device. Oh well, I'm just gonna give up waiting on Homebrew and enjoy the system in stock.
    Nerdtendo The classic battle of little siblings vs. the Nintendo Switch is back in full swing. I go to swap out the cartridge so I can get some sweet Zelda action when I realize something. The cartridge currently in the console is in backwards. Not only is it backwards, but it's almost shoved in to the same depth it is supposed to be normally. Who knows how this is going to end

    Nerdtendo -My thoughts contain a terrible beauty.
    -The things that I just cannot see.
    -Hopes, fears, dreams, love,
    -These terrible beauties appear to me.

    -First I see the things I hope,
    -Fame and glory and perfect peace.
    -These things I wish could come to pass,
    -Are hoped in vain to say the least.
    -Yet here I stand with hopes held high.
    -I ever hope despite the odds.
    -For if we have no thing to hope,
    -What more are we then empty bods?

    -And now I see all of my fears;
    -Rejection, loneliness, receiving hate.
    -The horrors that still grab me so,
    -The wrenching feeling I cannot sate
    -And even though the battle's won,
    -My demons insist on coming out.
    -But I will put away these fears away,
    -And then my dreams I'll think about.

    -I see the things I long to be.
    -Father, leader, husband, friend,
    -Loving, selfless, patient, kind,
    -The list goes on, there is no end.
    -These are things that may come true,
    -If I can ever persevere.
    -But I can't do it on my own,
    -And so I choose to let you steer.

    -And now I think of you my love.
    -The most terrible beauty of them yet.
    -For no matter how hard I pursue,
    -Love, always away will get.
    -It anguishes this soul of mine
    -Not knowing when my love will come,
    -Or how it will appear to me.
    -I wish this feeling could be numbed

    -And then I think of my God above,
    -And do recall your perfect plan.
    -And now I see I have no right
    -To these thoughts, for I am man.
    -And so I put away these things,
    -Because you are so good to me.
    -I approach tomorrow with a smiling face.
    -I fully give my thoughts to thee.
    Nerdtendo This blog post is really an excuse to get to know some of you guys. Y'all seem like generally cool people. What's something interesting about yourself? It can be anything from a story you have from you were 9, to your dog's name. Ready, set, go.
    Nerdtendo The biggest stain on my GBAtemp record yet. 20180112_223304.png
    The "Do NOT" really hit me hard. In all seriousness, I meant the clickbaity title as a joke but I understand that I went a little too far. My apologies, won't happen again.
    Nerdtendo I'm not really sure how many people experience sensory overload but I'm pretty sure it's a fairly common... Thing that people experience (I don't know what to call it, I don't think it's an actual disorder). Anyway, for those of you who don't know, "Sensory overload occurs when one or more of the body's senses experiences over-stimulation from the environment. There are many environmental elements that impact an individual. Examples of these elements are urbanization, crowding, noise, mass media, technology, and the explosive growth of information." (Wikipedia). This causes irritabily, "shutting down", anger outbursts, difficulty concentrating, and trouble socialising among other things.

    I experience this every now and then but most of the time, I can retreat into a quiet space and calm down before taking on the world again. Today however, I was not able to remove myself from the current situation and I almost snapped. What do you guys do whenever you can't remove yourself from a situation but you want to rip everyone's head off?
    Nerdtendo Hey Tempers, it's ya boi. Something happened to me that I find equally amusing and irritating. Some of you gave me a "7.8/10 would be mildly amused again" on my last issue so here we go.

    There's one girl who has been hopelessly in love with me for the past 2 years (no exaggeration). She doesn't think I know but in reality, everyone knows. Me and Clara, who some of you may remember from a previous blog. Were talking about how I could possibly like her via a Snapchat conversation one day (because that's what all of the cool kids do). Spoilers: I don't actually like her. One of my "friends", we'll call him Chris, gets his hands on my Snapchat password and looks at my DMs (because that's where the previous convo was). He proceeds to tell one of his friends that I like this girl who then tells the girl. (I think Amanda is a decent name for her). Now this is starting to feel like a bad Disney sitcom. I suspect Chris of having my password and call him out on it. He denies this and blames Clara on gossiping. Clara is not a gossip, Chris just hates Clara because they broke up. It has now been confirmed that I was right to believe Chris has my password but it's too late because poor Amanda thinks I like her. That is all, good night.
    Nerdtendo Last night, I was on my mom's email because I needed to send this email. Right before I clicked "compose", my eyes glanced to an email from Walmart saying "Your order of 'Legend of Ze...,". On the bright side, it appears I'm getting BoTW. I didn't even put it on my Christmas list because I try to only put one AAA title so I don't seem selfish. On the minus side, it's a bummer being spoiled like that.

    I love my parents.

    • Laughing until you can't breathe
    • Talking with a friend for hours about nothing important
    • Sleeping in
    • Accidentally brushing against your crush
    • Curling up and playing a game on a rainy day
    • Rainy days in general
    • Finishing all of your schoolwork/housework
    • Going to elementary schools and playing with the kids (I only do that on church/theater trips. It's not creepy)
    • Strolling through a shopping district

    Nerdtendo My skills are mediocre at best.
    Nerdtendo This is like, my 3rd blog post in three days. Whoops, hope y'all aren't annoyed with my ugly mug yet. I'll slow down.

    Anyway, I almost just posted about the Mario 64 Maker romhack because I thought it was new when I saw it in my YouTube. I wrote out the whole post and everything before a double checked the date. Why am I like this?
    Nerdtendo I was really close to getting that 9999 coin costume too. That is all, goodnight.

    Nerdtendo Warning: really bitter thoughts up ahead.

    GAH, have I got a story for you folks today. I have a friend. Lets call her Clara. She is 14 years old, super talented for a 14 year old, and acts older than her age (not in a bad way). She goes to my theater and we are good friends. There is another girl who went to my theater. Let's call her Patrice. She is 17 years old. She now lives in New York City.

    Last summer, Clara got a role that Patrice wanted. Patrice, being a drama queen, is not happy. Patrice is butthurt but doesn't do anything particulary bad aside from a few snarky comments. Later, Patrice moves from Texas to New York.

    A few months pass, and Patrice, completely out of the blue, texts Clara paragraph after paragraph of bullcrap just dragging her across the ground. I don't have the full text message but it was at least three pages worth of crap (double spaced, size 11, Times New Roman). She talks about how Clara is fake, annoying, untalented, worthless, and undeserving of friends. She goes on to THREATEN TO TELL THE AUTHORITIES AT OUR COMMUNITY THEATER THAT CLARA IS HARASSING HER. At this point I'm like, "This girl is absolutely crazy and needs help." This 14 YEAR OLD GIRL gets bullied like I've never seen before. She is clearly very upset. My sister, being a shockingly wise girl. Helps Clara feel better, and aids in composing a response that does not retaliate too much but tells Patrice how she is wrong. Patrice then goes on her private Twitter, and posts the entire text conversation. Her caption called her a "petty @** b****" and called the response "weak" and praised herself for "not cussing once." She posts all of this believing that she is in the right and has done nothing wrong (keep in mind that literally no one else has problems with Clara). Clara heard about this tweet and is even more upset. My sister has a word with Patrice, but it otherwise is left alone as not to cause trouble. Clara blocks Patrice on all forms of social media. Guess what? She forgot to block Patrick's spam account on Instagram. Today, one of my friends posted one of those stupid "like this picture and I'll send you a name. You have to give a TBH about this person." Patrice likes the picture and guess who she gets? Clara. She says "backstabber, gets away with pretty much anything, praised wayyyy too much for being talented. I like their hair." Patrice also put the role that she didn't get (Kathy from Singing in the Rain) on her resume in New York City which is a boldface lie. If I had different morals, that girl would probably be dead. Anyway, sorry about this. I'm just super duper pissed.
    Nerdtendo One of my favorite holidays. It is a time to reflect on the joys of life and be with those you love. The food is definitely a plus too, but I'm not here to talk about that stuff. I'm here to share this video that my church tortures us with every year and dont worry, it's super cringey. If you haven't seen it, buckle up. If you have, buckle up.

    Nerdtendo so yeah, me and my bud did a habenero pepper challenge for his YouTube show and I ended up wanting to throw up half the day. I highly suggest against similar endeavors. That is all, I just wanted to share. What stupid things did y'all do recently?
