Random Thought: TV

Even though I could watch TV pretty much whenever I want, I only ever really do so at Mamaw’s house. I mean, I’ll watch YouTube or Netflix whenver, but real TV I only ever watch there.

Storytime:Club Tortimer

Aloha humans! Something weird happened to me today.

So, I was playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and I had recently gotten a Club Tortimer memebership, so I decided to try it out. I got there, there were a few people, I did a couple tours with this girl, Holiday Tessa. It was pretty fun.

Then, I had to close my DS for a bit and when I came back some guy had left out a bunch of bell bags with 99,000 bells in each.

Um.

I asked if they were for me, and the guy was like, yep.

I didn’t take all of them cuz Tessa was still there and I thought she might want some. Then I had to go take a shower, so I left. I now have a little under 800,000 bells in my bank account (post paying off one of my Nook loans.

So, yeah. That’s how I ensured my next two in-game hime payments. Cool? Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Red

Aloha humans! Welp, the day has finally come. My YouTube Red trial ran out, and I didn’t have enough money on my visa gift card to pay for another month. Back to no Red originals, ads, and al that jazz for me.

I guess I could get another Red trial on a different e-mail, but then I wouldn’t have all my subscriptions, so what would be the point?

Anyhoo, that’s it for now. Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Guily Pleasures

Aloha humans! Here’s a list of my guilty pleasures. That’s all there is to it. Try not to judge too hard.

  • Self-insert fanfiction. Writing not reading. Don’t get too excited, hardly any has been written down. Mostly, I just imagine it. I mean, how cool would it be to walk around in Danville, or Duckburg, or the Castle of Lions. Plus, I’m sure we’d all wouldn’t mind smacking some sense into characters sometimes.
  • Arguing. I don’t know why, but I love a good, calm, argument. As long as I know I’m right (and I try not to argue when I don’t) and nobody gets too loud or emotional, a good informal debate is a great way to prevent the spread of misinformation. It can even be fun if done right. Although, it’s rarely done right in my experience. This is why arguing with my siblings is usually more enjoyable.
  • J-Pop. This seems pretty self-explanatory.
  • SpongeBob. I know that it used to be a good show, but if it’s on, even the crappy episodes, I’m not opposed to watching it. Even if just to complain about how bad it’s gotten.
  • Dating Sims. I don’t have any, so I mostly just watch Let’s Plays of them, but I won’t deny that I wouldn’t mind playing one. They can be surprisingly in-depth.
  • Crack Fics. They can be funny. For the uninitiated, a crack fic is a silly fanfiction that has no real purpose and only exists to be funny. They’re usually ridiculous and stupid, but they’re hilarious.

Well, I think that’s everything. Judge away, Judgey McJudgerson, but I’m sure you’ve got worse. At least I don’t read smut. Anyhoo, thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Phineas and ferb Observations

Aloha humans! I’ve been watching PnF with my sister for the weekend and it’s been a blast! We have a bit of a weird way of watching TV where anytime one of us makes an observation about the characters or plot we’ll pause it and talk about it or rewind to point out certain parts. Here are some examples of things we’ll say:

  • Everyone in this show is adorable, if not physically, than personality-wise
  • Look at the face Phineas is making, let me rewind. There! Shipped!
  • Isabella actively trying to be cute might be the cause of the cute interference, it always goes away right when she stops.
  • Jeremy is so crushing on Candace, too. Look at his reaction here. That’s so cute.
  • “Look at Perry’s face, he looks annoyed.” “He could be annoyed because Monogram keeps rambling” No, he’s definitely annoyed by the ‘Doof has no friends part.'” “Works for me”
  • etc.

I highly recommend this method of watching shows. It’s a good way to gain a deeper understanding of the show. Just make sure you do this with someone who is willing to pause often, otherwise you’ll annoy the crap out of them. My brothers and dad hate this way of watching. Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Social Life Rant

Social life? What social life?

Aloha humans! Remember how Lyn moved away? Well, I officially hate it.

Classes are soooo boring without her there, and trying to talk to her is a real pain. We never seem to be logged into Skype at the same time and I don’t have a cellphone. Also, she’s not the only friend I don’t see often anymore.

Charles started taking online classes exclusively, Tess, Col, Lewdia, and even Scooter have schedules that make me interacting with them inconvenient. My complete lack of social ability makes it hard for me to talk to other people without being akward and the only person who initiates conversations with me on a regular basis (outside my family) drives me crazy. I’m kinda losing my mind!

There is one bright side though. I did make one friend who I share one class with. We kinda annoyed everyone by moving to sit next to each other, but who cares? So, in one class, I do have someone to talk to. Yay.

Times like this made me wish I could talk to people without being annoying or getting annoyed. Thank gods for family, eh? Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Bike Riding

Aloha humans! Ever since I was young, I’ve loved riding my bike. I learned later than most kids I knew, and for a long time I thought I’d never get the chance to. Then, when I was around 10-12 my dad bought me this really nice maroon and cream colored bicycle. It was a basic cruiser, no basket, no bell, just the basics. I loved that bike. I still love that bike! I’m so short that I never really outgrew it, so as long as I keep maintaining it I could probably ride it for a few more decades.

One of the main reasons I love cycling is that it takes little thought when you ride in familiar areas. It’s one of the times I can really think (the others being as a passenger in a car, in the shower, and in bed right before or right after sleeping). I think of a lot of my best posts while cycling (including this one).

So, if you ever need to think, I recommend riding a bike in a quiet and familair area. Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!
