Arguments for and against AUTHOR CANCELLED

I just worked on the rough draft of my research paper for 4 or 5 hours. Guess what I managed to finish? Editing the outline. About half of the introduction. A tiny bit of one body paragraph. And that's all I have to show for myself. And I only have 2 more days to work on it.

"Research Paper of the Apocalypse" is an understatement now. So is "Research Paper of the Apocalypse of the Apocalypse". In fact, even...

10 print "Research Paper"
20 print " of the Apocalypse"
30 goto 20
40 end

...is an understatement, because at this rate, I'll be done by Thursday. No, not the Thursday it's due on - the one after that. Which is also two days after the Day of Frozen Pets (it gets tedious to say "the 666th day after my first 666 dream" over and over).

Speaking of the Day of Frozen Pets, today I realized that that's 100 days before my birthday. Scary...

Anyways, don't expect to see me for a LOOOOOOONG time. :(

I did much better today - I'm about a quarter of the way into the last body paragraph. Yay!!

Whoa, how did you leave a blank comment?

... but I didn't leave a blank comment! There were supposed to be images!

They didn't show up for some reason. There isn't even a space between the yellow comment header or whatever and the (Reply) (Parent) (Thread) links. Or at least not a space as big as the height of one line of text.

I get that in Gmail when someone leaves me a video as a comment reply. Not sure about images, though!

Me neither. I don't even use Gmail. Perhaps it was just a random glitch and it'll work next time?

OH! Now I see them. Apparently, AdBlock Plus was filtering them for some reason.

Weird - my Adblock doesn't, but I have no idea why yours was. Oh well, at least you can see them now!

I tend to not like most Internet memes that much, so I probably blocked the set of smileys those were from because there was another one that was based on an Internet meme. That'll teach me to abuse wildcards in URLs on my block list!

Ah, that would explain it!

Can you see the smileys in this smiley post?

Yep :)

Then that is good. :)

At least with a solid outline, the rest of the writing should go quicker, right? Right?

Good luck!

Turns out it actually is - I only have one body paragraph to go, even though I did edit my outline a little more!

Good luck! It sounds like a very interesting paper.

I should probably clarify: I call pretty much any essay or research paper the Essay/Research Paper of the Apocalypse because it feels like the apocalypse when I have to write it (especially in such a limited time like this). My actual topic is arguments for and against restrictions on alcohol and tobacco advertising. ;)

You are done now! Hope you are having fun at Le Prom! :) La Prom?

I sure did! I was SO tired afterwards, though - I stayed up until about 3 AM and got up this afternoon at 1.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
