I’m Back!

Aloha humans! I’m finally back!

It’s been so weird not keeping up with the blog this past week. I hated it, but I had to finish that gift. Speaking of, you guys are probably wondering what that gift was, huh?

I feel that deserves a post of its own! See you there!

Food

Aloha! I’ve stayed up late and when I stay up late I encounter a problem. It’s actually a problem I have often, but it’s worse when I haven’t fallen asleep yet.

The overwhelming desire to snack.

At night, I particularly have trouble resisting. This is cuz during the day I wanna snack cuz I’m bored (bad idea, don’t do that), but at night I have specific things I want to eat. Tonight alone I’ve wanted:

  • A cheese panini
  • cookies-n-cream ice cream
  • cheese peanut butter crackers (peanut butter on obnoxiously orange crackers)

I have managed to resist the urge to eat these things using the following thoughts, respectively:

  • too much work for this late
  • Bro bought it so I have to wait ’til he’s awake to ask for some
  • I already brushed my teeth

This didn’t really have a point. Just me struggling. I should really just go to bed.

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

Finished Ready Player One!

Aloha humans! I finally finished Ready Player One and I gotta say, it was awesome! It is the new top of my Favourite Books list!

That list now looks like this:

  • Ready Player One
  • Singing the Dogstar Blues
  • Kenny and the Dragon
  • Complete Sherlock Holmes Collection
  • Ender’s Shadow
  • Ender’s Game
  • Hound of the Baskervilles

As you can see, most of these are either Sci-Fi or Sherlock Holmes. However, Kenny and the Dragon is fantasy. I highly recommend every book on this list.

Back to the book I just finished! I was extremely invested, to the point of going largely AWOL online for the past two days. I made time to post, but I didn’t message anyone or keep up with communication (or fanfiction).

I want to avoid spoilers here, so I’ll just say that everyone should read this book. It’s really good (but not for tinies, 13 and up for language and mentioned sexual content)!

Okay, that’s all for now! Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!

Good Day

Today is a good day. I found a DS charger after failing to do so yesterday, I finished something, Liz made a terrible pun, and I took the fastest shower I’ve ever taken.

I hope allof you are having a good day too!

The only downside is that I have literally nothing interesting to write about.

Mistake

Aloha humans! I’ve made a terible mistake.

I left my sketchbook at my mother’s house.

Normally this wouldn’t be so bad, or even bad at all, but now that I’ve started doing Audience Participation I really need to have my sketchbook in case I get a question (unlikely, but possible).

So, if anyone asks something on Audience Participation, the earliest I can get to it is Sunday. Sorry!

Fictophilia?

Aloha humans! One of my biggest obsessions is Be More Chill as you surely know by now. Well, this awesome Tumblr blog combines BMC and this book called Ready Player One. I really really like that blog, so of course I desperately wanted to read this book!

Then, the other day, my mom was having me look through her IBooks app to find a book she wanted me to read on an old IPhone she lent me. I didn’t find the book she was looking for, but guess what I found all the way at the bottom of the list.

READY PLAYER ONE!!!!!!!!

So, of course I had to read it immediately! Thanks to a few other things I had to do first I haven’t made much progress yet (I’m only on Chapter 6) but what I’ve read so far has me hooked! Chapter 6 is where the kicker comes.

Now would be a good time to mention that I am a sucker for videogames, old movies, old music, and reading (this is important).

Chapter 6 is where the author begins to explore the main character (Wade Watts, aka Parzival) and his obsession with the Hunt.

Warning, Spoilers ahead!!!

So, it starts going in depth on how much 80s knoweledge Parzival has and my goodness. The kid is obsessed! Obviously, since the Hunt literally is his life. But it starts descirbing the stuff he knows. All the authors he’s read, shows he’s watched, books and songs memorized. I’m already super impressed at this point, but then he starts describing how he works through the videogames, and I’ve never been attracted to a fictional character before, but I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t wanna date Wade. I can’t decide if I wanna be him or marry him. Seriously.

Spoilers Over!!!

Bottom line? This book is amazing, I’d totally date Parzival, and everyone who likes videogames and/or the 80s should read this book! And check out

Thanks for reading humans, love ya all! Byeeeeee!
