First video upload (finally) and 180 on site update

- Posted in Uncategorized by

Hello dear readers! So uh, looks like I'm hardly the only one interested in attending a based college this year, because St. Mary's got about 150% the normal amount of applications this year! Which means they had to be a lot more selective now, and I didn't make it in. :( Also I kind put all my eggs in one basket so now I don't really have much of a backup plan other than to work for the next year I guess and maybe take some classes at the community college. So that's the bad news, but the good news is I get to keep this site up at least a little longer.

In other news, I finally uploaded that video I mentioned last month! Real life got in the way between now and then, and I still don't have a 1337 intro, but it's past time, so sit back and enjoy!

New Video Series and Plans Going Forward

- Posted in Gaming by

Hello dear readers! (Do I even have readers? :P )

It's been a while since my last post, and for a couple of reasons I've been kind of stalling on writing actual content now that I've got this site set up, but more on that later. Anyway, the main reason for this new post is that tomorrow afternoon I'm starting a new video series (on YouTube and Odysee at first, may expand to other platforms later) that'll basically be me screwing around in games like Elite: Dangerous, Satisfactory, Minecraft, Kerbal Space Program, etc. I know there's literally thousands of gayming channels out there already, but the main reason I'm doing this is because I think it will help with my stutter. I think the best way to describe it is basically that though my mind is racing at 1000mph, I can't put my thoughts into words fast enough, and I talk really fast too, so I'm always having to "buffer" like a video on a bad connection as I try to verbalize my thoughts. I really just need to take a moment to slow down lol, but remembering to do that all the time for something as basic as just talking isn't easy, so I hope being on camera will help to serve as a little reminder in the back of my mind to do that.

Anyway, now for some site news. Basically I'm going to college (a really based one) at the end of August, and I'll be expected to actually do stuff in the real world and as such won't be able to maintain this blog so it's going offline. (If that sounds absolutely horrible to you, then you probably have an anime profile pic and as such your opinion does not matter.) But no seriously, for the last several years I've been min-maxing my skill set with 10 haxxing, and 2 of pretty much everything else, and spending two years almost completely offline sounds awesome actually. I'll probably finally start putting up some Linux-related articles on here until then, but after that you'll have to use the Internet Archive to read stuff on here (and I promise I'll have made a fully working backup on there). This site should be back online by Summer 2023, and hopefully I'll be a little older and wiser and the quality of my writings will reflect that. Then I'll also finally get started on that second politics blog! (The one that "Murica" is a placeholder for on the homepage.)

As for the lack of content thus far, well, basically I setup this site last summer, and had a dumb little placeholder homepage for several months until earlier this year as I was procrastinating on school and wasting time in the now-defunct Heck Off Commie! Discord (thanks furries). Then in February I had the idea for my current homepage (and the blog theme should pretty soon reflect it) and worked on that for about a month, but still posted no actual content. Since then I've been trying to focus on IRL stuff, and though I'm not quite where I want to be I think it's time that I get on with my life and do the things that I want to do (getting a job, helping with the garden, getting in shape, blowing myself up making Cherenkov radiation) and hopefully some of that productivity will spill over into school. And if not, it's not like I'd be any worse off than I am now lol.

Well that's all for now folks. See you tomorrow!
