a long time ago...

Wow. So a few weeks ago I remembered about all the fun I had with Gamemaker/this site, so I decided to look it up again, only to find out the site was down. Being the stubborn bastard I am, however, I decided to dig and Google until I could re-download my crappy/entertaining games I made by visiting 64digits.com/games/. Ridiculously simple, yet it took me 25 minutes to figure it out.

Anyway, more retrospective thoughts: I'm really glad I made those games, posted a blog on here, and I'm glad that I can look back on it as sort of a time capsule from over 2 years ago (almost THREE now!). Gamemaker led to downloading the GIMP, to making fun signatures/avatars, to learning more about graphics, to downloading Photoshop, to editing/hacking other simple games and theming Zune player and my iPod Touch; to pretty much a lot of the computer experience I have. I owe a lot to that program, and to this site.

A lot has happened since that summer; I spent my junior/senior year of highschool attending the University of North Texas, thereby finishing my highschool career while collecting a total 67 college credits. Living in a dorm away from my parents, and with a completely unique set of friends has been an amazing experience, and I can't wait to start on my real college experience.

I've been accepted to a few universities, but the one I really want to go to is the University of Michigan; unfortunately, out-of-state tuition is $40,000+ and I haven't received any scholarships; financial aid could be coming, but I'm not keeping my hopes up. I'm going to try to make calls, but I might have to give up at some point. Which means I'll be staying in Texas to attend UT Dallas, who gave me close to a full-ride scholarship; a larger price to pay then it might seem, because I'll be settling for my second choice school for a made-up concept that we call "money."

So I have a big decision ahead of me: go to the big M and have an amazing experience with lots of debt, or go to UTD and live with my choice for the rest of my debt-free life.

I know this is a long post, I just kinda wanted to write down all my thoughts; I only have until May 1 to accept my schools, so I've been really thinking a lot lately. Unfortunately, I haven't been the happiest person, and I feel almost like I'm falling into depression. I don't think I will though, I can already tell whats happening and I'm surrounding myself with my friends and whatever choice I make I know somehow it'll work out in the end. Peace out.

Myspace is very lame

Alright, I just got (or should I say TRIED TO GET) on my Myspace, and...well...it sucks. The pages take forever to load, even on my broadband highspeed connection...and it's stupid. The only reason I'm keeping it is because that's basically the best way for me to keep in touch with my friends from school over the summer.

I also have 300 hits (LAME) because everytime I submit a blog, there are hardly any people online...but 300's better than none, right?

I don't think I'll be making any games anytime soon, I feel really lazy when it comes to Gamemaker...and I really stink at spriting. I forgot that part. It's kind of depressing.


P.S. Leave comments about my banner on my previous blog...I need more input.

P.S.S. 550 characters! yay bare minimum!

Vacation and No Guest! July 15, 2006

It's been a long time since I've made a blog...

A few days ago I got back from a trip to DCLA, a youth conference taking place in DC that trains high schoolers to share their story with others...more questions about it can be asked in the comments. I actually went to Michigan, went to DCLA, came back to MI a week later, then spent another week in MI before I came back to Texas, and it was really fun. All of our relatives live in MI, so it was great seeing them and stuff.

In other news, a few minutes ago there was NO GUEST ONLINE! w00t!!! I saw it and here's a picture:

This is my fake "No guest" table. See the difference?

I also beat LOLOMGWTFBBTWO in a collective time of 15 minutes, the first ten were spent on the first time, and when I was skydiving I died during the big gap of no platforms near the beginning...a little confused on that. But then it took me about 5 more minutes to complete it, so I'm not complaining.

I'm about to get a new avatar and banner, so keep checking back! I'll edit once I get it.
