Where Did I Go? (Cotton Eye Joe)

Aloha humans! It sure has been a while, huh? it’ll probably be a while again.

Why?

Because I have put my focus on:

  1. My YouTube Channel (I may only have 8 subscribers, and they may not be the most dedicated, but I love them just as much as I love you humans)
  2. College Prep (Save me)

So, yeah. Not a lot of news… Had the celebration of life for my paternal grandmother (8 months later), learned some neat stuff about theoretical time travel (too bad string theory isn’t viable), and schooled a kid I used to be jealous of for his intelligence on Hawking Radiation with the help of Bro’s best friend. Started playing a weird home-brew D&D campaign that’s p fun.

YouTube is going alright. The Slime Rancher Let’s Play is fun, if not very well done (but it’s my first real content, so I think it can be forgiven, right?). My sister (you know her as Lizzie, she also goes by Ace) and I are doing a kinda extra audiobook of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz as part of a podcast kinda thing called The Platy-Pod. I went with the reference to platypodes as a tribute to this blog. I also sang once. The song was just so stuck in my head! I think it came out okay, but who really knows. I’ve been listening to a lot of Welcome to Night Vale lately. That’s where I first heard the song.

All in all, fun stuff. I miss having the time (and stories) to do the blog all the time, but what can you do? It’s not like I have the time or money to go on adventures for stories. But hey! If you like what I do here, maybe you’ll like my YouTube. I love doing it and nothing’s gonna stop me, but it would be nice to know people are actually watching. More reassuring than talking to myself for hours, yeah? If you’re not interested, that’s cool too! I do still pop in here when I’ve got stories to tell or thoughts to share. I could never leave this completely. My best friend may have forced me to make this blog, but I grew to love it quickly and I couldn’t abandon it for forever. That said:

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

P.S. With any luck that D&D campaign will produce some good stories I can share with you guys! If not, I could always go back to Skyrim.

The Platy-Pod

Aloha humans!

So yesterday I got hit by a wave of emotions, y’know how that goes (if you don’t, it sucks). Last time this happened it was happy feelings, but too much of them. This time, it was not happy feelings. I started thinking about some stuff that there’s no point in worrying about, but what can ya do?

When that happens to me, I like to read out loud. So, last night, I got out The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and sat on the couch and started reading aloud. Lizzie and Blue were in the room, but Blue went to bed not long after I started. It was just me and Lizzie then.

I don’t remember where it started, but at some point in the book, I started joking around a bit. I won’t go into detail, but Liz joined in and we had some pretty funny commentary. Then Liz said, “We should have a podcast.”

I thought that was great and I remembered how I’d been trying to think of a way to get Liz involved with my YouTube Channel, so we created The Platy-Pod. Basically, we’ll read books (in the public domain of course) and throw in our own comments and junk as we go. I can work on reading out loud (a skill I posses, but I’m not great at) and we can make people laugh. Plus, it’ll be easier to do in a short amount of time than the Slime Rancher vids (which I am still doing, but it’ll probably have to wait until the end of the semester). Not sure it actually counts as a podcast, but we’re gonna call it one anyway.

Yeah, that’s all I got.

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Whoops

Aloha humans! It’s been a long time, huh? I didn’t intend for that, but between school and the wifi going out briefly, not to mention a just complete lack of anything to write, well…

Anyway, I’m not sure I’m back. I kinda think the upload schedule may be dead. Not even a full year, huh? I do plan to keep updating, just not as regularly as I did in the past. Maybe. I’m gonna try.

Anywho, thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

I Miss You!!!

Aloha humans! It’s been sooooo long! I still have nothing to talk about, so don’t expect a lot, but I miss you humans too much to stay away!

I’m back and I’m gonna try to stay here and I’m going back to the sae update scheddule and I’m so EXCITED TO BE BACK!!!!!!

ANyway, without any further ado, let’s bring on the content!

Quick Update

Sorry humans, but I’m seriously low on ideas. In a week or two, I could maybe get out a show recommendation, or a mood song or something, but I’ve got nothing right now. Not a thing worth telling.

I guess the twice daily updates have drained me of ideas. I’m hoping a funny memory will come to me or something interesting will happen, but until then…

The blog is officially going on hiatus. I don’t know for how long, but I fully intend for it to return as soon as possible. The moment I think of something good to write, I’ll be back.

Until that time, thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Long Time, No See

Aloha humans!

It sure has been a while. Sorry about the sudden disappearance. It was caused by computer troubles, the new semester, and a lack of things to write about. I really am sorry to leave you all hanging like that. Especially now that there are 30 of you now (THANK YOU ^v^)!

I’m going to try to get back into the swing of things soon, but expect sporadic updates for a while longer!

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Holy Crap

Aloha humans. Um, I’m gonna be out of it for a while, just a warning because:

My Physics teacher is dead.

He wasn’t an old man or anything, this wasn’t something anyone was prepared for. He’d mentioned having heart troubles offhandedly a few times, but it was always a past thing.

He died of heart failure earlier today.

I haven’t been to class since it happened, obviously, and part of me feels like it must be some sort of sick prank.

I never liked his class, but he was a good person and one of my favourite teachers this and last semester. I certainly never wanted him dead. Holy crap…

I have no idea what we’re supposed to do now. What is the protocol for a teacher dying? Nobody else here understands physics, certainly not any of the subs we normally have! I know it sounds weird worrying about the class, but what else can I do?!

S***.

um… I guess that’s it.

Thanks for reading, yadda yadda…
