    sks316 May as well, I've got nothing better to do. Just, please, try not to make it too personal.

    I also have a page on Curious Cat if you'd prefer to ask anonymously.
    sks316 Another year has passed since I was brought into this world. Let us celebrate my creation.
    Happy birthday to me! :toot:

    I got a New3DS yesterday as an early present, and am hoping to get a Raspberry Pi later today.

    If you feel the need to get me anything, you can buy me something from my Bandcamp wishlist and send it to sks316 at (Bet you were wishing you could copy-paste that email, huh? Well, life isn't always easy.) You can also contact me via Discord if you have another gift in mind.
    sks316 So there's a new blog trend that raped my notifications today, figured I may as well hop on the bandwagon. You can ask me questions here or on my Curious Cat profile. I can't guarantee an answer, especially if the question is too personal, but I'll try my best!
    sks316 Hey there. You may remember my previous blog post where I came out as trans. Ever since I made that post, I've had a number of people ask me what name I would be going by, but I still hadn't figured out if I wanted to change my name or not. Thus, I would still be going by "Austin" for the time being. I've done quite a bit of thinking, and I have come to the decision that I would like to change my name.
    I would like to change my name from Austin to Ciel (pronounced see-EL). I like the name Ciel, as I feel that it fits who I am and I think the name sounds nice. I like this name, and I am sure that it is the name I would like to go by for the rest of my life. If you're willing to call me Ciel instead of Austin, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Ciel (formerly Austin)
    sks316 I've been thinking about this for some time now, and some of you may have speculated about this after I made a certain blog post. I've been afraid to make this announcement, mainly because I'm afraid of how people will react, but I guess I should just come out and say it. I am transgender. To some of you, this may come as a shock. Others, however, may not be as surprised. I may have exhibited some trans traits over time that you could have noticed. I've been researching this subject over the past year, and I felt it was finally time to come out. If you're still reading, thank you. You have no idea how much it means to know that someone cares enough to read this paragraph that probably has a few typos and grammatical errors that I missed while proofreading it.

    Thank you,
    Austin (sks316) <3

    TL;DR: I'm transgender.
    sks316 E3 is right around the corner, and more Pokémon leaks have surfaced. Because of this, I believe Pokémon Switch, whatever it may be, will be revealed at E3, and as such, I am making a bet: If Pokémon Switch is not revealed at E3, I will lick a Nintendo Switch cartridge, delete one of my Pokémon save files and set my avatar across all media (yes, that also means GBAtemp) to Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony IN THAT ORDER until it is announced. The image I set it to is entirely up to me. The Rainbow Dash part doesn't really bother me in any way, as I am a brony, as stated in my previous blog, however the rest of it greatly upsets me. I am a good sport though, and so if I lose, I will admit defeat. I started this bet an hour ago in the RiiConnect24 Discord server, and it just continued to grow, and I intend to hold myself to it. So, let's see what happens.

    sks316 Some of you may have seen me hinting about this on Discord quite some time ago, or you may have not known about this at all, but I feel that it needs to be said and confirmed: I am a brony. If you somehow don't know what a brony is, allow me to sum it up for you: A brony is an older fan of the animated television series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. This may seem strange, and that's because it is. I'm assuming nobody expected this from me, and, to be honest, when I became one a few years ago when my brother introduced me to the series, I didn't expect it either. This fandom is quite unique, and I was amazed when I found an entire online fanbase and even IRL conventions based around the show, as I thought nobody of my age and gender enjoyed something like this. Sure, the brony fandom has had its ups and downs, but at the end of the day, it's an amazingly large fandom filled with equally nice people. If you want to unfollow me or even block me after hearing this, I'm perfectly fine with that, and if you don't believe me, notify me of something I can do to prove this. If you'd like to learn more about what a "brony" is, I recommend watching "The Brony Chronicles", a documentary by community member and YouTuber Saberspark. The first part has been embedded below.

    It you'd rather have text material to read and learn about this fandom, I recommend the website by community member and YouTuber LittleshyFiM.
    Now if you don't mind, I'm a little behind on the latest episodes of the series.

    (Any and all comments antagonizing me or hating me for enjoying MLP and essentially just being me can and will be deleted. This is your only warning. Thank you for understanding.)
    sks316 I felt like the old profile pic was getting a little, well, old, so I decided it was time to change things up! This is my new profile pic:
    In case you couldn't tell, it's Mega Mewtwo Y. I personally think it looks good. Over the next few minutes, I will be updating my social media and other profiles to reflect this change.
    While it is a very minor change in my opinion, our very own @bennyman123abc didn't seem to like it that well...
    However, I like it, so it's staying. What's your opinion on it? Leave it in the comments! (All negative and insulting comments WILL be deleted. This is your only warning.)
    Also, Net Neutrality ended yesterday. That's a thing that happened, and nobody seemed to care...

    sks316 So I went back to the Wii U after not playing it for quite some time (because of the Switch, obviously), and WOW, things have changed. For one, it's only after you've played on the Nintendo Switch for a while that you feel how strange the Wii U GamePad actually feels in your hands. It actually took me a while to get it to feel comfortable in my hands, which I don't remember having to do before getting the Switch.
    The games and Wara Wara Plaza also feel really empty because of the Miiverse shutdown, which really makes me sad. The games where I felt this the most were Super Mario Maker and Mario & Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars. It really shows how much of the Wii U was dedicated to social interaction through Miiverse.
    The Nintendo eShop hasn't changed much, which doesn't really surprise me too much since nearly everyone who used to develop for the Wii U has shifted their focus to the Nintendo Switch and other consoles. What I WAS surprised to see, however, was games being released on the Wii U eShop in 2018. It shows that Nintendo still hasn't stopped supporting the Wii U, though they aren't releasing first-party titles for it anymore. It just felt strange to see a new game being published for the Wii U in 2018, but then again Just Dance 2018 got released on the Nintendo Wii, so we really shouldn't be surprised. Going back to the Wii U was honestly a fun, but also a strange experience for me.
    The Wii U has quite a few games that I would love to see on the Switch, such as Super Mario 3D World, Super Mario Maker, Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed, among other amazing titles. These games are one of the primary reasons I played my Wii U again after so long. I'll definitely be keeping my Wii U so I can keep playing these titles, unlike others who are throwing theirs out, reselling them, or trading them in in favor of the Switch.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Etherium (ETH), etc. have become huge jokes and the laughingstock of the internet as of late, and they have also become one of the primary targets for scams and ponzi schemes *cough* Bitconnect *cough*.

    sks316 I was recently browsing Discord, as I usually do, and someone sent this.

    It's categorized as music according to YouTube, so I decided I'd give it a listen, and now I have it playing on loop in a Chrome tab, and have had it on loop for an hour or so. I think something's seriously wrong with me, help me.
    sks316 So, if you didn't know, I live in {CENSORED}, Oklahoma, and the weather here is known to be quite sporadic. This, however, came out of nowhere with no warning, at least to my knowledge. I'd say it was about two hours ago that we had THE. MOST. SUDDEN hailstorm that I have ever experienced. (maybe that's an overstatement...)
    It came out of nowhere, and like most hailstorms, it was really loud. Did this scare me? A little. Did this warrant a blog post? Probably not. Should I stop typing and go the fuck to bed? Probably yes.
    sks316 So, I got a copy of Pokémon Ultra Sun for Christmas, and I began playing on New Year's Eve.
    Instead of choosing a male Trainer right off the bat like I usually do, I chose to do things differently and leave it up to RNG which gender Trainer I chose.
    I assigned each even number to the male Trainer, and each odd number to the female Trainer.
    The random number generator came up with this:
    So, I'm playing through the game as a female character. To be honest, it hasn't changed the story all that much and I'm kinda starting to get used to the NPCs calling me a "she" and a "her" instead of a "he" and a "him".
    I haven't customized her all that much yet because I'm really early into the game (haven't even done the first trial) and there aren't that many customization options yet, but here she is anyways:
    Screenshot taken with Luma3DS Custom Firmware.
    I personally like playing this way and don't see why I haven't before. I'll definitely consider my options before blindly rushing in next time.
    So, that's it! Thanks for reading!

    Hell to the YES.
    So, in case you didn't know, bad cases of the flu are going around. (or so I've heard.) This caused an increase in student illness absences at the high school I go to, so they decided to make Christmas Break start early! Now instead of starting on the 20th, it starts on the 18th and goes on until January 3rd! Anyways, thanks for reading my blog.

    sks316 So, as some of you may know, I had to leave GBAtemp a few days ago due to my computer being shit. Well, I found the issue, and as it turns out, it was something incredibly trivial which I hadn't thought about in the first place: the computer was fragmented all to hell. I thought I had a schedule set up for the computer to defragment itself, so that was my last fear, but as it turns out, I didn't have it set up. I finally got around to defragmenting it, and all is well now! I'll be able to view GBAtemp and post on the forums more frequently now.

    sks316 Recently my computer's decided to take a shit, and that means I can't browse GBAtemp as often as I'd like. I'm working on getting this shit heap that I call a computer for whatever reason replaced, but it'll take some time, so, I've been forced to make this decision: I'll be leaving GBAtemp for an unknown amount of time, meaning that I don't know when I'll be able to come back. I'll also have to cease activity on other websites such as Reddit and Discord for this exact same reason. Now, don't get me wrong, the community hasn't done anything to make me want to leave, nor have I lost any interest in gaming or hacking. It's just this piece of shitty hot garbage I call a computer, and I don't have a phone to use to browse GBAtemp. So, this decision has kinda been forced. I'll try to come back when I can. Until then...
