Back to the... present

Well, August is over, so that means Matt1993 Nostalgia Month is over - so I changed my LJ and DW styles and userpics back to what they usually look like. (If you met me during Matt1993 Nostalgia Month and therefore don't know what I'm talking about, see this entry, or see it on DreamWidth, and then maybe see a few entries after it.)

If you do know what I'm talking about, you're probably thinking: "Waaait a minute, there's still something here that looks different from what I remember... Sure, the background went back to yellow or other yellow and Anya, Noma, Ricky, and blushy guy went back to not being as badly-drawn, but something is-- Wait, are these MY thoughts that are showing up in this entry?! Is this dork's journal reading my mind?!? I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 100. It's 47. Okay, that's just scary. I'd better not start thinking about my darkest secret..."

And to all that, I say:

1) Um, the "blushy guy" is me. And the other three are Enya, Roma, and Nicky - it says so right there on the userpic. Speaking of which...

2) Yes, remember how I asked whether or not some of my userpics are legible enough and then tried to make more legible versions of some of them? But never got around to uploading those as userpics?

No, of course you don't remember, because that was years before I met at least half of you, and it's been so long that those of you who were around for it probably forgot all about it. So to refresh your memory:

one
two
three
four


Anyway... I finally got around to that - or at least, I hope I updated all the ones I meant to! Four or three years later. I still haven't even updated my sticky "list of userpics in order added" post to include these updated versions OR the 2009-style versions (retroactive or not) - or any versions of my userpics besides "what they normally looked like from late 2009 to the first half of 2017". And due to a glitch on LJ, now not even those will show up in that entry again until I edit all of the image URLs to have "https://" instead of "http://" :( *

I guess that makes me the Enya of userpic updating... But hey, I finally finished one thing I started, at least! :)

3) Don't worry, your darkest secret is safe with me. I make no guarantees about your second-darkest secret though! :P


Now to go edit every entry and comment I ever made to fix all the userpics that are broken now. :(


*They need to call HTTPS something different - I keep wanting to use that as the plural of "http". "I need to change all the https to https!" ;)

I cannot believe Christmas is only three months ago! I dunno where this year has gone!

I think you mean three months from now, but still, me either!

I still can't believe 2016 was last year, or 2015 was two years ago, or 2012 was five years ago, etc. I still remember you posting about a dream that it was 2014 and the apocalypse or something was happening... 2014 was the distant future when I saw that post, but now it's three years in the past!

I'm still ridiculously far behind on so many things... I kind of wish it was still 2011 or 2012 or so. :(

Well hell! I can't type while in bed apparently. Lol oops.

I know it is crazy and makes me sad. I wonder where has my life gone? I know i am still young. But, still... it is a sad feeling. I also wish it was back then however I wish that if it were 2011 I had made different decisions. Decided to focus on a future career and not a stupid person it would basically waste two years of my life.

I was in college from 2011 to 2015 and graduated cum laude, so while I didn't waste those 4½ years, sometimes I feel like I did because I'm so far behind on my LJ friends page and so many other sites I used to check all the time. :(

Blurb

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...
