Sorry I haven't posted in a while even though my 21st birthday was last week. For my birthday I went on a trip to New Orleans with Mom, pathvain_aelien, and ellaina02, and I was going to post as soon as I got back. But then it started feeling like it would be too much effort to post about all of it since so much happened, so even though we got back on the 16th, it was only just now that I was able to convince myself to post anything. And even that's only because I decided I wouldn't add tags to it yet.

So anyway, what we did:

- The night before we went to New Orleans, we stayed at a haunted hotel in Jefferson, Texas. Most of it think it felt like it really was haunted, but we were all too sleepy to stay up and try to witness anything that was definitely unusual...
- In New Orleans we went on a swamp tour where we saw some alligators (and some raccoons on the shore, or whatever the swamp equivalent of a shore is because I'm not good with that kind of terminology), went on some streetcar rides (which would have been fun if there hadn't been so many confusing detours :( ), and went gambling a couple of times :) And despite having decided a long time ago to never drink alcohol even once even after I turned 21, I changed my mind at the last minute (well, not minute...) and had a strawberry daiquiri. I'm still going to refrain from having alcohol more than once in a while, but it was good :)
- Probably something else that I'm forgetting, since there were a lot of confusing moments on the trip.

My presents that I've gotten so far, aside from the trip itself:
- Ticket to a Sarah McLachlan concert on August 3!
- I get to pick out two games from the Nintendo eShop. I plan on getting Crashmo and Tomodachi Life, but I haven't bought them yet (though I already got the demo of the latter so I could decide for sure that I'd like it). Though at first I thought that pathvain_aelien meant that I could buy the games with my own debit card (or whatever it's called because I'm still financially illiterate after all these years), so I got NES Remix 2 as well before she clarified that I was supposed to... well, actually I'm still not sure exactly how I'm supposed to pay for the other two games (and I can't even describe my vague understanding of how I was supposed to do it except the money was supposed to be from either P_A or from Mom, and I forget which), so that's why I haven't done it yet. P_A, could you post a comment here explaining it both for me and for everyone else?
- Cards
- Probably other stuff that I forgot.

You know what? If you have any questions you want to ask me about the trip or my presents, you'd probably get better answers from P_A than you would from me. This is why I held off on writing this entry for so long - I can't explain things well even when I understand them completely :(

This entry does not get a repost button because it is friends-only.

You explained the trip highlights pretty well, I think. :) And the deal with the games: the e-shop doesn't let you purchase games with American Express, which is all I have, so I needed to get the cash out to give to you or mom, then you guys would have my money to buy them on your or her card so they would be from me. :)

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...
