Good afternoon everypony. Gonna be live streaming in about an hour or so. I think Im FINALLY ready to start speed running super metroid. I did a test run last night and beat my PB, but I made quite a few errors in terms of stuff that would've saved some time, sooo we'll see how we go tonight. (Will post the link when ready)
Apparently it's Derpy Day!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Hello friends!!! How are yall doing? SOrry it has been a VERY long time since my last status update. For some reason I was unable to see any of the messages, or my home page on this website. IT seems to have been fixed now, but I have since moved onto Discord so if yall want to talk with me on there, I'd love to hear from yall. I've missed all my friends so much
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm doin as good as I can. I finally got fed up with my depression and I'm goin to therapy. It's really affecting me and if it goes on it will affect my relationship and I really don't want that. Today was my first session. Also my best friend has taken up writing and she really wants people to read her stuff. This is her latest work that she is working on so if yall wouldn't mind reading it and giving your thoughts then both of us would appreciate that. https://www.wattpad.com/749116447-quantum-thieves-introduction I myself am a writer so I understand really wanting people to read my stuff. It's fairly short for now but she plans to add to it soon. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm pretty good and sad at the same time. Today was my last day at school ever. Over the past two years my body and mind has changed so much. I've made many friends and it's sad to see them go. But it's only for a while. I will see them again someday. This is the start of a new chapter of my life. School is done, and now it's time for me to focus on getting into the Air Force. I'm going to be training myself. I will continue to push myself hard. It hurts to see all of my friends go, but it is a bump I must cross. It feels like your favorite show ending. It's nice to see that it ended well, but you've fallen in love with it so much that you want more of it. I'm happy to have met the people I have. They have become apart of my family. Just like you all have. But anyways. Once I get my driver's license, I will be driving and hanging out with my friends, so until then. Their absence is temporary. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I've not been too great. On Sunday my depression got the better of me and I did something really bad and it really hurt me. But my friends saw and I ended up hurting them as well. But I apologized and they understand and forgive me. Which is good. I still felt depressed yesterday but I ended up being able to kick away my depression. And today I was pretty happy. But then lunch time came. I was hanging out with my friends and we were joking around but I started getting a little bit upset for some reason and I left and sat behind our wrestling room. I ended up falling asleep because my depression has left me feeling quite tired and when I woke up I realized I was 10 minutes late for class. So I was going to the office to get a late pass, and then our school's cop, saw me. He didn't say hi, or call me. But when I stopped looking at him I dropped my water bottle and leaned forward pretty quickly to pick it up. He then says "Hey, where are you supposed to be" in a pretty harsh tone. I told him and then he asked why I was late. I told him everything that happened. He didn't believe me (which I understand) and said that "if you are a senior then you should know that you weren't supposed to be near this area" to which I replied "I did not know that. I thought we could not go outside of the gate." Which he said in a harsh tone, "I don't believe that shit." So he searched the area where I had fallen asleep at for about 5 minutes (which again I understand completely) and then he called security and the vice principal. A couple times while we were waiting, he would rest his hand on his gun, like he was ready to use it. Then the security came along with the vice principal. Then he had me drop everything out of my pockets and all I had was my wallet, some coins, a spoon, and a pocket knife. But before he had me drop everything out of my pockets he asked if I had anything that could be considered a weapon so I had told him that I had a pocket knife on me. I always have a pocket knife because I tend to always need one at school, whether it's cutting string or opening packages. My major in ROTC knows I always have this pocket knife of me and he trusts me to have it so he never says anything. When the officer saw my pocket knife, his tone went from harsh, to just menacing. The look he gave me was a look of "I know you did something now. You are definately guilty of something and I'm going to find out what and haul you off to jail." While all of this was going on, he insinuated to my VP and the security guard that I had tried to run away from him (but in actuality that was me picking up my water bottle and he knew that's all I was doing). If it had not been for my vice principal being there, he would've hauled me off to jail. There's no question about it. Because as soon as the VP showed up, his tone stopped being harsh. After another 5 minutes of this, he took another look around the area I fell asleep in and that's when my VP asked me. "Have you ever gotten in big trouble before" to which I honestly said no. And my VP could tell that I was being honest because he could see how scared I was. It was obvious I wasn't into that Thug Life thing because even though I did nothing wrong (except for being late to class) I was holding back tears and I was shaking from fear. He could see it. That's when he said "It's okay. I'm on your side. You haven't done anything that would get you in trouble and you have great grades so I believe you." This honestly is what made me cry through my last few classes. I was scared that I was gonna go to jail. I had an asshole cop telling lies and being very rude to me and the cop, who is supposed to be trust worthy, was making me sound like I was a bad guy. But the VP didn't care, he trusted me and didn't doubt anything I said. I was scared out of my mind and a cop was making me feel scared, but the VP didn't judge me for accusations. He was actually on my side. Once the officer concluded his "investigation" he found that I really didn't do anything wrong. I was told I could have my knife back after school but I didn't go grab it because this whole situation put me back into my depression and I didn't want to risk doing something to myself and breaking the promises I made. We need more people like my VP who have faith in people and don't judge based on accusations. I cried knowing there was at least someone who treated me like a human being, and had faith in me. And their faith wasn't wasted. Sorry this was so long.
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I've been pretty good. So apparently I got a scholarship to one of the community colleges in my town. I got a not saying I was eligable for a scholarship based on my grades, so I thought I'd have to be entered into a drawing, or I'd have to write an essay. But no I found out today that I basically got the scholarship. I just need to log into this site and claim it. Because I missed the deadline I won't be able to get my scholarship during my graduation. I'll get it some time after, but hey. A scholarship is a scholarship and I also got 4 credits to use on whatever I want because of my culinary program. And I also qualify for financial aid, so I might be able to get through a year of college without having to pay for anything. Also the Air Force recruiter came by my school today and I got to talk to him. He gave me a crap ton of paperwork and if I get it done real soon, then on Thursday (I'm tryin for Wednesday because my family has a couple doctors appointments on Thursday). Once I go and talk to him at the recruiting station I'll be all set up to go to meps in June. How have yall been?

Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm pretty darn good I can't lie. Tonight was Mil Ball and it was a blast. The girl that I brought along and myself had an amazing time. People enjoyed the video I made for Mil Ball and there was LOTS of dancing. I didn't know dancing could be as fun as it was. I had to go up to the Grog Bowl because when I went to put my ingredient in I didn't measure it in a shot glass, but it was actually tasty and I asked the president of Mil Ball if I could get some more. She said I could but people would look at me funny. Some people did, BUT I got people to join me and even some of the people that didn't need to go to the Grog Bowl went. For those who are curious the Grog Bowl had ice water, protein powder, coconut, shredded cheese, fish oil, and my contribution which was Soy Sauce. I chose Soy Sauce because I feel like it's a great representation for people. On it's own it can taste bad and a bit salty, but when it's combined with the right ingredients it can be delicious. The rest of the night was filled with our Major telling about why he joined the Air Force and then A LOT of dancing. There was some slow dancing. Me and the girl I took slow danced to a few songs but because we didn't know how to dance it was a bit awkward. BUT I turned our awkwardness into some fun by embracing it. For a couple of the slow dances my friend wanted to sit down so I would slow dance around the room like I was dancing with someone and that got a lot of people to laugh. Then later on in another slow dance that my friend sat down in, I noticed one of my other friends wasn't dancing with anyone so I convinced him to join me. XD He was hesitant at first because he didn't want people to think he was gay but he eventually said "Fuck it" and joined me. We got quite a few laughs, but we ended up giving courage to some of the other guys who didn't have anyone to dance with, so eventually they danced with each other. This was honestly one of the funnest nights ever and I'm not going to forget it anytime soon. Here's a picture of me and my friend when we first arrived at Mil Ball together. (And for those who are wondering, yes she okay with me showing this picture).
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm pretty good. So I asked one of my friends if they wanted to go to Mil Ball with me and she said yes. I'm looking forward to going. I kinda wish I was going to Mil Ball with a guy, but the friend that's going with me is nice so I should at least have a good time. Mil Ball is on Friday, so I've gotta get a white button up shirt by then. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I've been pretty good. So today I had my second Marksmanship competition. I could've done A LOT better than I did. I don't know what happened to my skill but it wasn't there today. Also I went to my new doctors today and got a physical. After about 3 hours of waiting I finally got out of there with a note saying that everything was fine with me. So I sent that note to my recruiter, now I just wait to figure out my next step in joining the Air Force. Getting this note, was quite the set back in my plan, but it's all well and good now. Next up should be MEPS if I'm not mistaken. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm pretty good and bad at the same time. Today my R.O.T.C. core had the Bataan Death March. We had to walk, or run 14 miles (since we were doing this around our school's football field we had to do this 56 laps). I decided to make the mistake and run the entire thing. I couldn't run the last 5 laps, because my legs felt like they were on fire. Once I completed the 56 laps, I lied down on the track and passed out. When I woke up, all the sweat that was on my legs was rubbed together by my legs (because I was sleeping on my side) and it gave me this really uncomfortable rash on my upper thighs. So when I walk now I have to walk like I have two casts around my legs (keeping my legs as far as they can go). My legs feel better now but this rash SUCKS...But other than that I am having a good day. How bout yall?
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I've been stressed out of my fucking mind the past week and a half. BUT today made up for all of that. Tonight was our award ceremony for our R.O.T.C. core and I didn't expect to win anything but I won 4 awards. And 2 of those awards were a ribbon and a medal that were for a National award. I won a fucking national award. I won it for the positivity that I showed for leadership activities and within the core. Then I got my Marksemnship badge (which looks AWESOME) and I won the Superior Performance Ribbon. So tonight was an amazing night. Best of all...after 18 years...my g-ma finally said she's proud of me. I was expecting it to finally happen after I graduate from Basic Training for the Air Force, but I'm not complaning. How have yall been?
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I know it's been a while since I've been on and I do apologize for that. Life's been pretty rough recently and it's kept my mind distracted. What have yall been up to?
Hello everypony. How have yall been recently? I've been good. Sorry I haven't been on in a while. Nothin really interesting is happening in my life right now apart from after school clubs, so I don't think about getting on. If yall want to talk to me almost daily then join my discord server and we can chat. Next Saturday I will be going on an Orienteering Competition with some of my fellow R.O.T.C. cadets so that'll be fun. How have yall been?
Movie Review: Bird BoxSo I'm here with another movie review. I know I've done one yesterday but my original plan was to watch Bird Box but The Meg got in the way of that. So I watched it tonight instead.So the plot of Bird Box if simple. The world has gone extinct from something that will cause you to commit suicide if you see it. So the remaining people left in the world don't go outside but when they do, they wear blind folds. Three surivors (a mother (who I like to call female Kratos), and two children) are trying to find a camp that is safe from whatever it is that's killing everyone. The movie switches back and fourth between the first month or so since the chaos started, and the current day that our three heros have traveled for.There are somethings that I will dock this movie on, but there aren't a lot of things to dock. First off, the first death of the survivors (that we get to know and love) was gay. Now I'm taking that off because there was another character that served NO purpose except to be a complete asshole. And not even a charming asshole like Nick Wild (from Zootopia) was. He was just a blatant asshole there to cause problems for everyone. So he could have EASILY been the one to die first (when you see the movie, this was a scenerio where someone specific was meant to die so the asshole could have died there and the plot wouldn't have been altered in the slightest). Another reason why I'm docking points for that is cause I'm petty AF. Another reason that I'm docking points off is the love interest of the movie. I felt absolutely no chemestry between the two romantic duo (one being our main character from the beginning and the other being one of the survivors). BUT later in the movie another pregnant lady arrives at the house and joins everyone. Since both our main character and the new lady are pregnant, the new lady feels that it would be best to sleep in the same room together. Over time we realize that the new lady is a softy. And that the main character kinda watches out for her. These two characters have a few things in common and with the main character looking out for the softy, I could feel a really strong romantic bond between the two. The actual love interest has NO chemestry with the main character whatsoever. Another thing that I'm docking points on is it felt towards the end of the flashbacks the movie didn't kill enough people so they had 1 crazy person against 3-4 people and they all failed. Except the asshole who got a shot on the person but it was only in the arm, so it didn't do much.Now whatever negatives I have remaining about the movie are just very small and not even worth bringing up because they don't make sense and are hard to explain without spoiling. Now for some positives. The acting was great. Nothing phonomenal, but nothing to complain about. The cinematography was really nice. Characters had some great personalities to them (even the ones I hate). And it is kind of nice that they didn't have a creature specifically shown in the movies, but one of the survivors that went crazy had drawn what he had seen and we got to see what those looked like, so that was pretty cool.Enough with the bantering. Let's take a look at the A.P.C. and see how good of a move this is.Characters: 100%Plot: 75%Acting: 80%Cinematography: 80%Consistency/w plot: 75%Interest kept: 80%Scares: 30% (I won't factor in because the movie didn't want to go the whole scary type of horror. More adventure, than scares).TOTAL: 82%Notes: When I saw the trailer I thought it was gonna be a really good movie. The took out the sense of sight and had to focus more on hearing and mental capability to survive and it worked. A lot like the movie Hush which dealt with a girl who was deaf, the movie took the risk of not having an important surviving factor (in these two movies cases it was having the character(s) not have a sense that you would normally need to survive). And that risk paid off. The movie was fun, nothing amazing like Wonder Woman (2017) or Deadpool, but fun none the less. Definately go check it out if you haven't already.Hope you guys enjoyed my review. This movie was tough to review without spoiling a lot. If yall didn't like the movie tell me why, if you did, then tell me how much you agree with my ratings. Have a nice day.
Aight so this movie review is brought to you by Fear. Something that drives people to do insane crap that they regret immediately or don't even live to regret it.
Alright so I just watched the Meg. Some of you may know that my biggest fear in life is being anywhere near the water. A deep pool is about as far as I will go. No lakes, rivers, and by the holy man himself, NO OCEAN. So you all might be wondering why I put myself through hell for a movie. Well I heard the movie wasn't scary at all so I decided to go and see what was up with it. So taking out the fact that I'm afraid of the water, the movie wasn't scary in the slightest. The jumpscares were only slightly scary to me because of my fear of the water, but other than that the movie was less scary than the Teletubbies...actually scratch that. If you've seen how big the Teletubbies are, then the scary factor on them rises. So this movie was about as scary as My Little Pony. It really wasn't scary in the slightest. There was a lot of ATTEMPTED comedy in the movie. Even though it's not placed as a comedy, there were too many jokes in there for me to not have a comedic section in my Average Percent Calculator (APC).
The acting was pretty good for all of the characters. I didn't like Li Bingbing's (Suyin) acting in most of the scenes, and her character felt dry. Like you had all of the other actors who actually had some personality to them. You had Jason Statham who was the one doing all the dangerous stuff, Rainn Wilson who was the douche bag entrepenuer who tried to get everyone killed so he could save a few bucks, and even Page Kennedy who was the scaredy cat who wanted to get out of there. But then you have Li Bingbing who's character was dryer than some over cooked chicken. She was just there to get herself into danger, to give Jason Statham more badass time, to be the unneeded love interest, and to save Jason Statham in the ending. Now a lot of you might be like "You just gave away something in the movie. Why did you spoil it. Blah blah blah"
In all honesty as soon as you see Jason save everyone in the beginning, and it's established that he's the cool savior, you'll realize that he's gonna need saving in the end, so it's not that bad.
So the plot of the movie feels like something from a movie that's on the Syfy channel. An underwater discovery team has a theory that the bottom of the Mariana Trench is not the bottom. It's made of like pressurized sulfur dioxide or something like that and their machines can pass through it but because it's so cold the life down their can't pass through. So they go down and pass through the "bottom" and reach the other side. While down their the three people that went down there get attacked and are stranded. So to save the three people, they convince Jason Statham to go down there because his ex wife is down there. Once they get everyone back up and everything is all well and good. The Meg attacks their research station Mana 1. After doing some finding on the radars and other equipment, they find out that when they left there was some heat or something that left a trail through the cold pressurized sulfur dioxide. And before the heated passage grew cold the meg had time to swim through.
So that's enough of that plot. So here's my ratings for the movie.
Scares: 0% (Excluding my fear of the water that enhanced these scares.)
Interest kept: 50%
NOTES: The Meg had good ideas that were executed poorly. They got some good actors in there, some good cinematography, but that's really about it. The Meg was better left as a trailer. The trailer made the movie look so good, but the actual movie felt like a stretch of the trailer. What seemed like it was gonna have a lot of exploration in it, didn't really have too much exploration. As much as I hate to say this, if they had spent more time underwater exploring the underground areas, then the movie would have been a little better. Because as I said earlier, their cinematography was amazing, and pretty scary.
If you liked The Meg, let me know why you liked it. If you didn't like it. Tell me how much you agree with my ratings. Thanks for reading and happy New Years.
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm a little sad, but pretty good none the less. My aunt, uncle, and their kids left today. I'm pretty sad about that because this might be the last time I see them. If I get into the Air Force, then I won't get to see them ever again. But apart from that I'm doin pretty well. I watched Krampus tonight. I will give credit, where credit is due. The movie had some great visuals on a lot of the monsters, and the beginning was pretty good. BUT over all the movie was awful. The story line was fine, and the acting was great for some of the characters, but the middle and the end of the movie felt like something you would see off of the SyFy channel, and they aren't known for having good movies on there. The movies I would usually rate a 4/10 what with cheesy acting, awful C.G.I. and not the best plot lines. So back to Krampus. The story line was fine, but there was a scene where the (for some reason German) grandmother was telling a story from her childhood about *surprise surprise* her interatction with Krampus, Now the animation was pretty nice, but I still have no clue why it was animated. The flashback story wasn't bad. It met the plot line perfectly but that's not really a compliment. More of a "if you don't have this perfect then there's something wrong" kind of situation. Because the flash back should match the plot line perfectly. (that's the one thing in a movie that needs to be perfect). But the animation didn't fit at all. There was NOTHING in that flash back that could'nt have been done in live action. That's another thing wrong with this movie. There were a lot of pointless scenes that felt like the cost A LOT of money. And the ending. HOLY CRAP the ending. *SPOILER FOR THE ENDING* I was so confused if the boy actually died or if Krampus threw him into a portal that would allow him to be with his family. I'm pretty sure it's the portal because when the family sees the bell, they all get quite and have serious expressions on their faces. *SPOILER OVER* So recap on the movie.
ACTING FOR THE UNCLE AND AUNT: 50%
ACTING FOR EVERYONE ELSE: 100%
INTEREST KEPT: 60%
TOTAL MOVIE AVERAGE (TMA): 67%
If you liked it tell me why. If you didn't tell me how much you agree with my review. And please remember this is just my opinion. If you liked it great (that's why I asked you to tell me why), I won't judge.
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm pretty good. Got fed up playing Dark Souls 2 today. I'm tryin to beat the Ancient Dragon boss, but it kills me with one hit. And that wouldn't be to bad, if it wasn't the fact that the trip there has 11 tough enemies that I have to make my way around. So I've decided to just keep killing those guys until they stop respawning (I've got to kill each enemy 15 times). It's frustrating, but other than that nothin too special has been happening. I've taken some pictures with my new camera lens and the pictures came out beautifully (it's a Macro lens that's 75-300 mm). It's way better than my old lens thats (35-55mm). How have yall been? What did yall get for Christmas (if you celebrate it.)
Merry Christmas, Hannakuah, or whatever you celebrate. Hope yall have a good time and lots of laughs.
Hello everypony. How have yall been? I've been doin pretty good. Nothin too interesting has been happening here. Gettin ready for my Aunt and Uncle to come up with their kids. So that'll be a lot of fun. But cleaning up the house is not fun. But we're almost done. We've got to finish cleaning up the house then were done. I've already got the bunk bed for the kids put together. So how have yall been?
Hello everypony. How are yall today? I'm FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC. So today was C.O.T.C. graduation. I got my ribbon, and certificate, but not my ranks because I cannot have a D, and I have one D. BUT that D is a 69.4 and I need a 69.5 to have a C. So I don't have to do very much to get that grade up. I've already completed an assignment that was missing in the class that needs the grade up. So either tomorrow or next week, I will get my ranks. I've gotta say. It feels SO good to have the literally sweat, blood, and tears all be worth it. I even lost my grip on reality for a few minutes and started arguing with this voice in my head telling me that I wasn't going to pass and that there was no point. But my best friend snapped me out of it before any of the instructors noticed (who knows what would've happened if they saw that). So I proved to myself that I can do it. We may not have been the first C.O.T.C. flight to have had every cadet pass, but we were the C.O.T.C. flight to have every cadet make it to the final day without quitting. And that's a great accomplishment. How have yall been?
