Now for my not the Writer's Block

I wrote my regional short story yesterday a lot faster than I thought I would! (Which isn't saying much - it still took from about 6 PM to almost midnight.)

Today, I went to a math competition and won first place in both the individual and team divisions just like last time and won another iPod nano (though this one's green whereas the first, which I apparently didn't mention in that other post, was silver). I'm still not sure what I'm gonna do with it, though I've been thinking about giving it to pathvain_aelien since she lost her iPod shuffle recently.

Great job!

Wait, since when do they give awesome prizes at math competitions? All I've ever won were either T-shirts or funny little prizes.

I dunno. Have you ever been to a college math competition? Maybe that has something to do with it.

All of them that I've been to were at colleges but for high schoolers. Maybe that's it?

Actually, the competition I went to was also at a college but for high schoolers.

The world may never know...

Congrats! You are awesome. See you aren't losing any math abilities. I think giving the new ipod to your sis would be sweet. Although ipods do wear out so keeping it as a reserve when your old one dies would also be smart.

Wow, well done. Giving your least favourite coloured iPod to your friend is probably the way to go as selling on eBay is a pain in the butt.

Yay congrats!! Maybe next year they will give out something besides Ipods.

I think a Nintendo DS was one of the prizes some other year; probably the year I won the other iPod.

Well, it would be pretty funny if you just keep winning Ipods.

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...
