Divine Internetvention

At some point between when I got off my computer last night and when I first got on it today, my wireless Internet connection stopped working, yet it displayed conflicting connection levels: "limited connectivity", yet the signal strength was "very good" (4 bars out of 5).

I thought for a moment that it might be God's way of telling me that I need to wait until after I've went through my college supply checklist or something before I finish writing my birthday LJ post in advance, but I decided that might be reading too far into it and tried my dial-up connection. I was able to get onto my e-mail and Facebook, but not LJ, despite the fact that downforeveryoneorjustme.com said that LJ was up.

So then I decided, just for grins, to go through my college supply checklist and see which of the items listed I have already to see if that was really it. I didn't even have to buy any of the items I didn't have or wasn't sure I had, or gather them up in a suitcase or anything - right after I was done just going through the list and checking stuff off, I went back to my computer and the wireless connection was working again!

I still might be reading too far into this after all (especially since, now that I think about it, I forgot to count how many shirts I have to make sure there are at least 14 like the list says), but it's certainly interesting, isn't it? :)

Yeah, I had a similar moment last night / this morning at nearly 1 AM when the LJ Dungeons / Space Adventures wouldn't connect. I figured it was God's way of telling me to go to bed already, even though I wouldn't really sleep worth a darn AND even though I'd probably be awakened by Teunis' alarm at 6:30. :D

If God messed up my electronics when I'm procrastinating my creative vortexes, rather than when I'm working on them, I would be so much more focused... :S

You didn't miss it, and thanks :)

Thanks!

I finally have a picture of myself as my profile picture on Facebook again - see, some of my Facebook friends were changing it to various "The End" screens for the May 21, 2011 Rapture prediction, and so I had changed mine, but now I finally changed it back to a picture of myself. It's an outdated one though - I'm starting to grow a mustache and a beard now. Maybe I'll post a more recent picture sometime :)

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...
