A day in the life of a nonsensical forum admin

Just thought that I'd jump on the bandwagon. =P
I'll describe anything that may be on interest about my affairs here.
There wont be much, but I'll think of something I'm sure. Lol.

Entry #1: Writing and all of that stuff

So hello guys, I have been inspired to write up my first blog entry by Romeo. His most recent entry was about writing, so I thought that I'd talk about that as well.

Now I am very happy to see that Marriland removed the whole license thing from RPs (to an extent anyway), so now people have been given the chance to post whatever the fuck they want to within reason. But I never expected Jack and Silv to create RPs, so I couldn't resist making applications for them. If I don't get my uni work done (and I realise that my workload MAY delay my posts in RPs somewhat, I should mention that on Marri...) then I blame those guys entirely. Maybe. =P
Now Romeo said that I had shit a brick or two, which is probably an accurate metaphor. I never believe that I have done well enough. It's just one of those personality quirks of mine that gets rather bloody annoying after a while. Of course I will not hold it against either Jack or Silv if I don't gain entry into their RPs at all but I cannot help getting excited about participating in something worthwhile on those forums again. It's been too long since a GOOD RP has been posted on there. Seriously.

So what do I have planned? Well, I may be in more RPs, I have a lot of uni work so I'll be posting that onto my DeviantART, and if I feel like it then I will get around to writing that short exerpt that I have planned. I have realised that it may be a VERY long time until I get around to writing the original story that I should at least attempt to write before assessing my abilities. But apart from that I just want to get out of this horrific mental state that I've been in recently. Bad events have been piling up and it's been getting on my nerves, but I'm sure that I'll work through this mental shit heap that stands before me. I am determined not to get any more behind with my work than I currently am if I can really help it. My tutors have been very understanding though which does make me feel that bit better about everything. Writing should take my mind off of things as well.

Thanks for reading guys, and Romeo deserves some credit for inspiring me to write this shit.
=D

YAY! Credit =D
And I agree, Jack and Silv's RPs are very interesting looking.

Entry #2: Perspective

Hello and welcome to entry number two! Feel free to comment about my post in this thread.

Anyway...*rubs hands* let's get down to business.
Okay so the last couple of days have encouraged me to try my best to start viewing things from a different perspective. I'm at my Dad's house at the moment and he has helped me to understand how my finances work, plus he took me along to Specsavers to get that shit with the contact lenses sorted.
But we were having a conversation on the way back to his and we stumbled across the subject of my Mum. She's a very selfless person who generally goes out of her way to please others, BUT she broods about things and gets depressed/bitter as a result. Dad said that when he was with her that attribute worried him somewhat. There'd commonly be days where she'd just sit on the settee and watch TV while thoughts went through her head, sending her into a spiralling downhill cycle...thing. This made me realise that I do share some of these habits.

I have low self esteem and I get discouraged easily. I struggle to socialise and when I get miserable, I can't bring myself to do the things that would not make me miserable. So we were talking and my Dad said that it was important to savour life. I haven't done that enough. I sleep too much and I only socialise through the interwebs. So I have decided to try and better myself...and I hope that I can keep my eye on that goal for a long time. I'm going to start by going to the comic con and then I'll take it a step at a time. I've mainly written this all down so that I KNOW that I really do want to achieve this goal.
I also realised that my Dad has learnt from his mistakes, and I was stupid to assume that he was disappointed in me. He's helped me out a lot these past couple of days and he's been nice about it. He knows what my mistakes are, and so do I. It's all in the past now.

I want a positive outlook. And I'm going to try hard to get to a point where I don't worry myself sick over stupid things anymore.
If I have a problem, I'll just tackle it instead of evading it for a while.
If there's something wrong, I will make more effort to actually tell somebody...even though I find this incredibly hard.

Sorry about the boring post. I just needed to vent.
Thanks for reading.

Entry #3: Story time!

It's about time that I updated this, so I'm just going to type about whatever comes into my head.

I have an assessment on Monday and it's a PRESENTATION of all things. Heh. Panic mode initiated. >__>

Also, I have downloaded the Gorillaz's new track to my ipod. It's called 'DoYaThing' and it's a collaborative effort. It's FREE to download people! It's not the best Gorillaz track ever but you can get it from here: http://play.converse.co.uk/2012/02/23/doyathing/

And yes Pokemon White 2 and Black 2 were both announced folks! WOOOOOO YAY FUN FUN FUN! I can't really comment on them yet as there's not much information floating around about those games yet but I'll be buying one of them when they float over to the UK's shores.

But why the heck did I choose such a silly name for this entry? I'll cover that point now.
I played Minecraft and LoL this reading week but I didn't start my fricking story. That's right, I have an original story kinda planned out and I just want to see whether I have the dedication to complete it. xD I would love to finish it and everything but I am not so keen about posting it on the internet. There's always the threat of it being stolen or something (I'm paranoid lulz) and I want to be selective about who I go to for feedback about what I write. DON'T WORRY THOUGH. Most of you are definteley on my list of people who I'd trust to proofread it...and if you're not sure then just ask me. BUT NO STEALY YOU PIRATES/RUFFIANS/SCOUNDRELS! OR I WILL GO ALL HULK ON YOU!!! >=D

Um...that's it for now.
Feel free to comment on this post and such.
Thank you for reading! YAYYYYYYYY!
