Tell me something about yourselfJan 15, 2018
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.
Oof, sorry.Jan 13, 2018
The biggest stain on my GBAtemp record yet.
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.
What do you do to combat sensory overload?Jan 12, 2018
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?
Mildly amusing story: the mediocre sequelDec 28, 2017
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.DRAGONBALLVINTAGE likes this.
Don't you hate it when you spoil yourself on your Christmas gifts?Dec 15, 2017
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.
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.Dec 13, 2017
What are a few of your favorite things? The small little details of life that make you feel happy. Some of mine are:
- A new toiletry item. Shampoo, bar of soap, tube of toothpaste, etc.
- 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
- Finding money in your pocket
- A hot shower.
- Singing to myself at the top of my lungs because no one is around
Anyone up for Smash 3DS?Dec 10, 2017
My skills are mediocre at best.
Mildly amusing story.Dec 2, 2017
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?

Let me be mad for my friend for a minute.Nov 29, 2017
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.
It's Thanksgiving my dudes and I have a treat for youNov 19, 2017
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.
I ate a habenero pepper.Nov 1, 2017
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?
Why are Americans so freaking sensitiveSep 27, 2017
*Disclaimer* if you get offended by anything I say, that is not my attention however, you'll be proving my point.
I've been thinking lately (a dangerous pastime I know) but I've noticed that Americans are extremely sensitive. What ever happened to "suck it up" or "get over yourself"? For example I have said that I do not agree with homosexuality but I still am friends with and love homosexual people despite me not agreeing with this lifestyle, of course I was still called homophobic and got a lot of hate by some pansies who couldn't respect other people's thoughts. Another example is the is viewpoints on celebrities and the like. I've noticed people being unnecessarily bashed for not liking a generally liked person or vice versa. The most extreme example is something I saw today. There was a video of a photographer being observed by a young elk. It showed mildly hostile behavior as it would bend it's head down and buck the man who was sitting on the ground. He stayed down so he wouldn't upset the elk and he got away unharmed. The elk was later put down for "repeated aggressive behavior". At least 80% of the comments said that the man had performed animal abuse because the elk was put down even though he did absolutely nothing to harm it. People went as far as to say that the man should have been put down. This begs the question. What causes us Americans to be so easily offended and hate others just because they differ in opinion? What do you guys think?
Has anyone ever seen me?Aug 15, 2017
OOOOOooohhhh. A bandwagon!
Now I'm curious. I've been on and off on this site and I'm wondering how those few who have interacted with me see me? I probably know where this is gonna end up but whatever.
