It's December now? GOOD!! Because at least there's one New Year's meme I can get out of the way now, six days before I get too distracted playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to remember to do it. :)

Go to your Calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2018. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

January 2018

I think there's a glitch in my copy of Windows 7. It says today's date is "1/1/2018". I thought the year 2018 didn't exist - didn't the world end in 2017?

February 2018

YES! I'm FINALLY done fixing all of my entries in 2007-2010! (Hopefully...)

March 2018

It's Friday already and not Tuesday or Wednesday... but at least this is still the most regular feature I've had in my journal since the weekly Garfield Randomizer comics in 2009!

(This, of course, is about my weekly Miiverse backup entries... which of course did not remain a regular feature for long...)

April 2018


May 2018

So I found this two-part YouTube video called "500 Characters I Want In Smash Bros. Switch"...

June 2018

About time I posted some more of these. Once again, I meant to post them last week...

July 2018

- On June 14 or 15 or so I saw The Incredibles 2, then saw Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom a week or two later! I liked both :)

August 2018

It took four days (more than that if you count the time I spent putting it off), but I'm finally done fixing one of my longest and most cringeworthy entries ever! :D

September 2018

Well... it's September 4. So Sunday was the first anniversary of the day I was finally motivated - by a glitch LJ had for about three weeks where a lot of images were suddenly broken in entries - to finally get around to fixing the broken images AND everything else I wanted to fix in my entries on both LJ and DW.

October 2018

WARNING: I am extremely depressed and therefore this entry is going to make no sense whatsoever because I am physically incapable of wording an opinion very well when I am depressed.

November 2018

pathvain_aelien stayed at my apartment for a while; in that time we watched the How To Train Your Dragon TV show! (Specifically, the third of the three shows there were. P_A, what was the third show called again? Dragons: Race to the Edge.) We made it to season 4. :) Have any of you watched it?

December 2018

It's December now? GOOD!! Because at least there's one New Year's meme I can get out of the way now, six days before I get too distracted playing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to remember to do it. :)

This looks like a fun meme to do. I might have to steal it from you. But I'm also kinda lazy, so we'll see haha.

Dec. 1st, 2018 06:33 am (UTC)
WHOA! That was a fast comment! :)

And thanks! I stole this meme way back in 2009 and have done it every year since then. I can't believe that was so long ago! :)
Dec. 1st, 2018 06:40 am (UTC)

I did it quickly, too haha. Took less time than I thought.

Was it fast? I must have refreshed my feed as soon as you posted it. I hope you had a good 2018 overall!

Dec. 1st, 2018 06:47 am (UTC)
Thanks! My 2018 was pretty good. For the most part. Better than my 2017, anyway. :) I hope yours was good as well!
Dec. 1st, 2018 06:52 am (UTC)

Mine was pretty good. Good and bad, but good overall. I got married this year, which was the shining point of the year, so I'd call it a good year overall.

Dec. 1st, 2018 07:00 am (UTC)
Congratulations on getting married! :)

Glad it was better than 2017 was for you!

Dec. 1st, 2018 06:59 am (UTC)
Thanks :)

2017 had some good points too, but mostly it felt like a whirlwind of me panicking because I thought LJ might shut down at one point, and of course it didn't but several accounts were deleted throughout the year and so many other sites I wanted to catch up on went down. Stuff like that.

Though 2018 had moments like that as well... and this seems to have been the year when I worried constantly about online drama or possible online drama. I'm kind of afraid of what my other New Year's meme is going to end up looking like... So now I'm not really sure which year was better overall for me.

We made it to season 5. :)
Dec. 1st, 2018 08:52 pm (UTC)
I know, and that's what I meant when I wrote the original entry (I meant we'd finished season 4). I was just quoting the first line of each month of 2018 like usual. :)

Make sure you never buy Windows 10.  They weren't joking about Microsoft sending out an update that almost destroys your computer permanently.

Dec. 2nd, 2018 07:16 pm (UTC)
The only computer I use that has Windows 10 is my work computer. And yeah, I heard about that update, but I don't remember it messing up my work computer - but maybe the IT department prevented that update or fixed it or something.

In case I ever have to use a Windows 10 that does have issues because of that update, do you know what you're supposed to do to fix it?

Besides the fact that the January 2018 entry wasn't about an actual glitch. It was me joking about how since so many things had gone wrong in 2017, I'd doubted the year 2018 would even exist because the world seemed to already be ending. :P
Dec. 4th, 2018 03:31 pm (UTC)

I know it wasnt.  For some reason your entry just made me think it is a great idea to tell you to avoid windows 10.

Microsoft messed up the October 2018 update so bad that it did something a bit different to peoples computers.  Some computers the update deleted files without permission, wiped their computers clean, turned off sound, ect.  On our computer the update downloaded even though it did not have permission.  Nasty update.  Took us 5 tries to get our computer back and on the 5th time were not sure what we did.

Dec. 5th, 2018 03:28 am (UTC)
Thanks for the advice. :)

You're welcome 💓

October 2019


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...
