Rovanda's Words meme

Here's the meme.

Dreams

I wasn't really that fascinated with weird dreams until I read some that people posted on the Homestar Runner Wiki Forum. Some of them were pretty funny. One dream posted there, in which the guy that had the dream was playing either Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker or Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (I forget which), and then it turned into Legend of Zelda: Four Swords, and then he started a Pokémon battle with one of the NPCs and selected Pokémon to use for the battle by putting stuffed toy Pokémon on a table in his room, apparently inspired me to have a similar dream that I posted to the forum and then eventually to _dreams_. For a while, I had a lot of weird dreams after that, but sadly, not only have I not had any lately, only pathvain_aelien comments on most of them nowadays. At least there are three phrases I will continue to ponder: "author cancelled", "no education for singer", and "frozen pets".

Summer

Ah, summer. The time of year when Mom nags slightly less when I stay on my computer most of the day. The time of year when I don't have to worry about being grounded for not doing good on a test. The time of year when snow cone stands are open. Plus, my birthday is in the summer. And, as an added bonus, it lasts longer than Christmas break! :)

Mario

I am a HUGE Mario fan. I don't remember when I started playing Mario games, but it must have been an early age because I think I managed to beat Super Mario World at age 4, even though I kept playing it anyway. To this date, I still play it, albeit on an emulator and while using a ROM corruptor to make weird levels and get the emulator to call me a chin rag.

Here are all the Mario games I have played to date (those I could find in the Chronicle in SSBB or knew what games came before and after it anyway, since I wanted to sort them by release date):

Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
Super Mario World
Super Mario All-Stars
Super Mario 64
Mario Kart 64
Mario Party
Super Smash Bros. (Yes I know that's technically not a Mario game even though Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi are playable. Can we move on?)
Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
Mario Golf
Mario Party 2
Mario Party 3
Super Mario Advance
Mario Kart: Super Circuit
Wario Land 4
Luigi's Mansion
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Super Mario Advance 2
Super Mario Sunshine
Mario Party 4
WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$
Wario World
Super Mario Advance 4
Mario Party 5
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
Mario vs. Donkey Kong
Classic NES Series: Donkey Kong
Classic NES Series: Super Mario Bros.
Mario Pinball Land
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Classic NES Series: Dr. Mario
Super Mario 64 DS
Mario Party 6
Mario Party Advance
Mario Party 7
Mario Kart DS
Tetris DS (Yes, I count that as a Mario game even though he's only in it because several NES characters cameo)
New Super Mario Bros.
Super Paper Mario
Mario Party 8
Super Mario Galaxy
Mario Party DS
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Mario Kart Wii

Enya

I first started listening to Enya when pathvain_aelien was taking me home from school or something and we listened to Watermark in the car. I particularly liked the song Orinoco Flow. However, it wasn't until I looked for pictures of Enya for putting her in the pre-Smackjeevzoic version of PrtSc Land that I started becoming as much of an Enya fan as I am today, because that's when I first noticed how pretty she is. (Well, she is!) I currently have all eight of the "main" Enya albums: The Celts, Watermark, Shepherd Moons, The Memory of Trees, Paint the Sky with Stars, A Day Without Rain, Amarantine, and And Winter Came. I really wish she'd do a concert though...

I think I particularly like things that have to do with both Mario and Enya. Remember Waenya? And most of my weird dreams?

Potential

Lots of people I know say I am so good with programming that I could work at Microsoft someday. Mom even once said that I could be best friends with Bill Gates and we could play Super Smash Bros. Brawl together. I don't see how that could happen since Nintendo and Microsoft are rival video game companies, but what the sail.

Ha why would you want to be best friends with Gates?

He's not as much of a loser as you think, okay?

Especially if he turns out to be good at Brawl. :P

I don't think he is a loser, I think he is a scary tyrant. Didn't you see that episode of the Simpsons?

I don't think I saw that one, but I heard about it.

Don't think it sounds narcissistic or anything like that. Sounds fine to me.

(Explanation to anyone besides us who happens to revisit this entry even later than we did: Some drama on LJ that happened much later made it seem not only plausible, but likely, that a lot of my old entries and comments - including this one - might make people, even my LJ friends, hate me, so I linked to all of the posts that I was worried about.)

You said in the original comments:

Ha why would you want to be best friends with Gates?

I don't think he is a loser, I think he is a scary tyrant. Didn't you see that episode of the Simpsons?

How is that narcissistic? It would be narcissistic to say that you were way more awesome than Bill Gates or whatever and weren't joking and hadn't proved it somehow. You worry too much.

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...
