About this blog

Not much of a blogger, but I like to use this for those very specific works of writing that just don't fit anywhere else and news updates that would not fit in a status update.

Every Video Game I've Beaten

My 25th birthday’s coming up soon, so I thought I might as well list off every video game I’ve beaten in my life. This list does not include online flash games, no Tiger Electronic games, no Team Fortress 2 or Fortnite, no speedrun of Cookie Clicker, just all the official, single-player games that I have beaten (or in rare cases like with a few PC games, at least played extensively, as a few of the games listed can not technically be beaten) across every gaming platform I’ve played since I was a

Feeling Very Anxious, Tired of This Work Debacle

I hate blogging about stuff like this, but I just can not believe how garbage my luck has been with work ever since I quit Macy's and it's driving me nuts. I thought I was doing the right thing after I saw that guy who was mistreated break down on the floor and start punching a pole, I thought I could get something better with all these places that are now hiring, but my luck with getting work has just been so unbelievably bad. Got laid off on my third day at Dick's, got terribly misinformed abo

Got Another Job

I put in my two-weeks notice to quit Macy's today after I got sick of the management there getting smarmier and smarmier in order to compete with Amazon. I am now employed with Marathon, who set me up with a job at Bell-Carter. Even if this new job I have boxing potato chips doesn't do it for me, I can still get signed up for another one. Regardless, I will not support mistreatment of people with serious medical conditions, I refuse. 

My Personal 2020 Retrospect

Although 2020 has been one of the worst years for the world in recent history, and I have to give my condolences to you if you had a terrible year, I do want to write a short overview of all the significant things that happened to me.  Not too long after the year began, I got my first full-time promotion at work. I never missed a single week of work the entire year and by the middle of the year, I was slated to get a raise. I didn't get it this year because of what I already explained in an

I Reached My Savings Goal for This Year!

Even though 2020 has been one nightmarish year for the world, things continue to look up for my personal life. Like everyone else, I have not been spared the wrath of the growing civil unrest and CIAH!. I had to indefinitely swear off discussing sensitive issues six months ago after I kept getting attacked over trivial matters and the company I work for lost one billion dollars from the pandemic, costing me the raise I would've received. I was able to get incentive pay though, being yet to take

I Got Featured on FIMFiction!

It just came to my attention that Windigo Whisperer has been featured on FIMFiction.net!  I just discovered this when I was browsing the Featured section out of curiosity, wondering how the story was able to get 1,000 views so quickly, and here I find my dream from eight years ago finally coming true!  I can't explain why this story has been so successful...but people have shown their support for it, so I'm going to thank them by continuing to give them what they want!

I Got a Commission Offer for My Newest Story!

I mentioned in a status update that I couldn't believe I just wrote a 3,000-word pilot for a Human in Equestria story about Windigos. I have not read a single HiE story in recent times besides I Am Not Sombra and only very recently decided to take a shot in the dark at the genre. What I can't believe even more than what I wrote is how something I felt was guaranteed to bomb horribly has been received so positively that an artist actually left a comment wanting to do a commissioned cover for the

One-Year Anniversary At My Job!

As of today, I have officially been working at a job every single week for a year straight!  This job picking at Macy's is the first job I've ever worked that I've held for a full year, and this is also the first year of my life where I've spent no time unemployed!  Also, despite the fact that I'm working full-time at 40 hours with 50-hour weeks potentially coming earlier than expected, my activity with both my creative work and my games has not stagnated! I was in a horrendous rut back in

I Got My First Paid Day Off at Work

I actually had two pretty mediocre days at work this week. One day, I had this guy come over to me, pestering me with this uncomfortable talk about relationships and asking me if I was into "f'ing girls" when I clearly wanted him to stop. Of course, the next day, work abruptly throws me into prep for the whole day...where they had me folding and packing ladies' underwear. God has a perverse sense of humor.  Thankfully, I finally got a paid day off approved from my work in the next two weeks, so

Money Woes, Begone

Got almost a thousand dollars back in taxes today, paid my rent, and still have thousands of dollars to burn.  I never, ever thought I'd see the day where I'd have family pressure to stay and help out as opposed to having family pressure to move out.

My Promotion to Full-Time

If you saw my status update, you'll already know that I got promoted to full-time at my work, but I wanted to make a permanent note of it since it's a big step forward in my life.  I'm getting a raise too...so it's likely I'll finally be fully independent in the not-so distant future.

Work is Going Good!

Yup, I'll say it again like I did on my status update. Don't be worried about me on my job, things are going great. Physically demanding as it is, I am nowhere near struggling right now. I am consistently getting in the top 3-5 for performance and finally was the top performer for the night last night.  Now I just gotta do that for four 50-hour weeks in the season rush and I'm good to go.

My Thoughts on Every MLP:FiM Season 9 Episode and My Farewell to the Series

This is a compilation of every mini-review I gave to each episode of Season 9.    The Beginning of the End (both parts): I have many weird feelings about this season premiere that make it difficult for me to articulate my thoughts...but I will start by saying that it was awesome and miles and bounds better than the first premiere involving King Sombra. The pacing was perfect, there was always something happening, a constant feeling of suspense, and best of all, do I even need to say it

My Thoughts on Every Season 8 Episode

I've already shared my opinions on every individual episode of the season in each episode discussion thread, so this is where I will show you a compilation of them all and give you a better idea of what I thought of the season as a whole.  School Daze (both parts): Awesome premiere, one of the best. My favorite part was how everyone in it was being racist. I'm part-joking, part-serious, I don’t think it was one of the best, and though I honestly was amused the whole time at how none of the
