This past week has been pretty stressful, because even with pathvain_aelien's help, both my Computer Science essay and my career portfolio took all weekend because I kept procrastinating throughout the week. But at least it's over now and there's much less homework this week!

Remember those unusual online clocks I found? I found another one, which was part of the reason I was procrastinating so much:

http://base36.org/

This one doesn't seem to have as much potential as the rest, though; it's only synchronized to seconds, thus causing the other units to be "36 seconds", "about one third of an hour", "about 13 hours", "about 19½ days", and "about 23 months", which don't correlate very well to the normal clock or calendar system. Still interesting, though!

Two more world domination quizzes:

I find it depressingly ironic that the one person on here that I've actually thought was dead (several times) ended up being the squirrel that died... I'M SORRY FOR NOT PICKING "AWWW, HOW SAD"! :( :( :(

*This date and time in the Base 36 clock is actually not too far off; it's on September 23, 2012. Hmm...

Yep :)

It's too bad that they only came back for updates long enough to post that and Which Ween Costumes? and then went back on hiatus for another year, though :(

(Why do I keep wanting to type "Wheen" instead of "Ween"?)

Yeah, I agree. As for the "Wheen" thing... maybe you've been looking too much at THIS ICON! :P

I have belatedly noticed that you seem to have a thing for both video games and timekeeping, and I thought this might interest you nearly as much as it did me: D'ni Time Presentation

The video itself isn't great, but the information contained in it is fun, as is the clock.

I've never played Myst, but looking it up on Wikipedia, it sounds interesting :)

The clock sounds interesting too, but I think it'd be easier to understand if there were an online clock in that system like there are for the ones I've linked to.

An online clock would be extremely cool... you know, I would suggest it, but Michael doesn't speak to me anymore. Even so, I love that presentation, not so much for the game tie-in (I have not played Myst much), but for the research into time systems and mechanical clock construction and calibration.

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...
