As the title implies, I created this just for fun. ^_^ I mainly intend to use this as a means to jot down whatever comes to mind, and (provided that I feel like it) put down some stuff on history. I'll try not to be too judgemental about topics that tend to be extremely sensitive like politics. (No, no, scratch that--especially politics.)

As a side note, I'm also going to start using this as a means to announce when I have updated my story Tides of Fate or anything else related to it.

For those wondering what I look like, here's a picture!

(Surprised that I'm still not showing my real face? Too bad! >D *evil laughter*)

Thank you for your time, and have a wonderful day!

Pesky Challenges

Everyone's come across them before: someone sends out a mass challenge to do on their wall/world that answers an insane number of questions or to do something random. I don't really like those myself since they take up a lot of time (normally), but every now and then I find one of interest and do it anyway.

In this instance, the one I was considering doing was the one that required you to go to your iTunes library and play songs at random. After which, you would add the phrase "in my pants." Eventually, I turned it down for three reasons. First, I believe adding that phrase is a little disturbing. Second, it's not really my sense of humor. Finally, what did me in was that when I decided to attempt it this was the song that popped up first:

Shake, Rattle and Roll

If that isn't a sign to stop before it gets bad, I don't know what is. =_=;

That's it for now. Later! ^_^

Manga Trouble

I don't feel like spending too much time on this, so I'll make it quick.

Is there anyone out there in the general audience that knows how hard it is to find manga that just isn't circulated as much any more? Well, I sure do, and one series that is taking me forever to find is Samurai Deeper Kyo. I suppose it would be easy to find them online, but I like the thrill of the hunt.

Just yesterday I managed to find two that could've helped me expand my collection. They weren't in the best condition of course, but at this point I don't care as long as it's legible, not too banged up, and the store doesn't ask for full price.

Would you believe that the store I went to asked full price?

It took every fiber of my being to ask the lady at the cash register if she was out of her bloody gord. Instead, I merely smiled and thanked her for her time. Maybe I should cut the store some slack; they carry a lot of stuff you can't find anywhere else, such as anime CD's, anime merchandise, more plushies than any five people put together, and plenty of cool-looking wallscrolls. I guess one setback isn't too bad.

Happy manga hunting everyone! ^_^

New Avatar and Stuff

I don't know about y'all, but I think I've been due for a new avatar for far too long. -_- I've been in a Suikoden mood lately, so I decided to dedicate this newbie to one of my favorite characters. (Even though he technically doesn't talk. ^_~ )

Anyway, not much has been happening on my end outside of the normal school-related stuff. Probably a good thing too; it keeps me preoccupied and out of trouble. It also boosts up my drive to eventually get back to writing my fanfics. (Provided that I can force myself to sit in front of the keyboard long enough to do it without being distracted my stuff like DBZ Abriged.. Dang it, Support KIRA! Why did ya have to introduce me to it?! *laughs* XD )

Well...actually there is a little bit of news from school that might be of interest to some of y'all. This year, one of my music classes put on a performance of Dido and Aeneas, a Baroque-era opera that runs about an hour or less. 'Twas a lot of fun, but it did prove difficult at first due to the nature of the text. If anyone is interested, the opera tells the tale of the Queen of Carthage and her Trojan lover, Aeneas, who end up having to part due to the will of the gods. The twist though is that it wasn't actually the gods who decreed this to be; it was actually due to the mischief of a group of spellcasters. Believe it or not, that's basically the whole story. If you can, check it out.

That's all for now folks. Later! ^_^

Huh...what to write...

Hello everyone! Shadweh here with only one thing to say:

I can't even remember the last time I was active on here.

Instead of getting into the reasons behind that (*cough-collage!!!-cough*), I want to hear from y'all. What have y'all been up too lately? Has anyone seen any good anime in a while?

I hope to eventually get back into the swing of things, but right now the best thing for me is to stay off of the internet so that I can do what needs to be done. ...Oh my God! I'm becoming an adult!!! O_O;

Stories from the Bard

So I'm finally getting around to posting something of my own on that world I created a few months back. I had a hard time deciding what I wanted on there because I was originally thinking about making a short story. Instead, I'm going to post this poem that I created back in April (*coughs* but just now got around to finishing). It's not meant to rhyme or have any particular style to it at all. Go ahead and check it out if y'all are interested.

Oh! And about that wedding I attended sometime back in which I sang "Ave Maria"; it turned out to be a great wedding. It was really cute to see the bride all blushing and giggling to herself the whole while, and almost downright funny to see the groom and the priest lightly pick on her as a result of such. I'll admit, I was a little nervous about performing it for a while, but the beauty of singing is that you have to take the time to breath. The result, naturally, is that your nerves quiet down just enough for you to get started. In the end, I think it came out okay. (The people around me said I did great, anyway.)

Later y'all! ^_^
