    Not much has been happening here, has it?

    Hey, does anybody do roleplay? Online, structured game, or otherwise? Just curious, because I do both of the previously mentioned. :3

      Eh, not really, you’re right. I have had lots of tests/exams recently, so yeah…
      At one point a couple of years ago I used to roleplay Warrior Cats on warriorcatsrpg.com and also not so long ago with Jenny. :)

      • Agent Snowbell 11:43 am on January 27, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        Oh yeah, you mentioned that! I host a roleplay on Tale of Dragons, but it’s sort of in a transitional phase currently. I’d like to start a new one somewhere, but I’ve never read Warriors. I also play 2 different RPGs with various people I know in real life. ^^

    IT RAINED TODAY YAAAAAY
    I live in a desert we get 5 rainy days a year let me be overly excited.
    But wow the drainage system here is rubbish the school grounds get covered in water every time it rains and you can’t see the road for water even when it wasn’t even raining too heavily or for very long. AND nobody knows how to drive in the rain so there are looooaaads of accidents.

      I can totally identify with this! Yay! Except we still haven’t had more than one day of real rain in months. Where I live, we’re in, what is it now, the third straight year of a drought? I didn’t know that was possible until it happened. I remember a while back the streets used to flood every winter. And I got to walk home. :D Although back in middle school, it was only two blocks to my house. Yeeeah, that never happens anymore.

        Wooow. 3 years?? That’s crazy. Yeah, people had to come with a great big thing and pump all the water off my street because it still hadn’t gone after three days.

    • paperclip123 2:36 am on January 22, 2015 Permalink | Reply

      Total of 756 accidents just in this city (population just over 2 million so we’re not like a giant city) over eight hours.

      It rained yesterday here!!! A little.

  • Agent Snowbell 8:49 am on January 4, 2015 Permalink | Reply  

    My hair is blue today. :3 Well, at the ends, anyway. I did it myself. ^^
    Also, school starts tomorrow! Agh! Although I do miss my friends. :/ I still have a LOT to do today, though.
    (So why am I sitting here blogging? Because reasons. Technically, I’m waiting for breakfast.)
    I also got my PSAT scores back. I always wish I did better in math, but hey, I’m still in the 95th percentile of the state. It’s just too bad I always do better in the Critical Reading area, since I’m more of a math person. >_> In case you don’t know what the PSAT is, it’s a prep test for the SAT, which colleges look at your scores for when you apply. So, y’know, it’s important and all.

    EDIT: So. There was no school today. … I didn’t know. I’M SO HAPPEH :’D

      Awesome! I used hair chalk to colour the ends of my hair recently. It was my first time so it was a lot of fun.
      SCHOOL! D:
      Important stuff man.
      (side note because I’m always confused- is college like uni or sixth form? Anyone here know what I mean?)
      How come you missed school?

      • Avalon 3:19 pm on January 16, 2015 Permalink | Reply

        “Is college like uni or sixth form?” Uh… I mean college like Oxford. \(‘-‘)/ Around here, your school career goes something like this: You go to preschool (glorified babysitting), then start in kindergarten, and then the year after that (at about 5 yrs old) you begin 1st grade. 1st through 5th grade is elementary school, 6th through 8th is middle school, 9th through 12th is high school, and then you go on to college – the first part of your education that’s not required by law (where I live, anyway). The places you can go to college are called “colleges” or “universities.” And just to make it even more confusing, some “universities” are split up into multiple “colleges,” like the place my parents went. However, you can still call the whole thing a “college” too. X/ After approximately four years, you graduate from college with a bachelor’s degree, and from there you can get a teaching degree (not quite sure how that works) or go on to graduate school (at the same college or a different one) to get a master’s degree or even a doctorate degree. :) Of course, after high school, you can also stop at any time, although these days it’s really hard to get a job that you can live off of without at least one college degree.

        And I didn’t “miss” school, the students had the day off! It was a prep day for the teachers, but both Mom and I forgot and drove all the way up there anyway. XD We weren’t the only ones, either.

        • paperclip123 7:48 am on January 20, 2015 Permalink | Reply

          Ok so university. Because some people I know call sixth form (I think for you that’s grades 11 and 12) college. I think what we count as year 1 is what you call kindergarten which is why we have 13 years are you have 12. Also, I think preschool is the same as or similar to reception which makes sense….
          EVERYTHING MAKES SENSE NOW YAY
          Haha cool! I think I’ve done that once before.

    Hi, I’m alive. Which probably doesn’t come as as much of a surprise as the fact that SD is, but whatever. Happy New Years! I got a lot of nice presents. A dress with the Marauder’s map on it and tickets to two concerts (Walk the Moon and Young the Giant) and chocolate and stuff from Lush. I also got a present for myself, this guide on inventing imaginary worlds (http://www.amazon.com/The-Imaginary-World-Keri-Smith/dp/0399165258) and I would highly recommend it. Anyway, the reason I’m here is to tell you about my new blog, http://okspacekid.blogspot.com/ . Go, follow. And if you think the theme is ugly, please (politely) explain why to me, because I genuinely like it but it seems that 99% of the world thinks glow in the dark ceiling stars are tacky.

      I have read your blog. Cool. :3 And the glow-in-the-dark stars are slightly old-fashioned, but they fit the blog pretty well, I think.

      Hey! I really like the blog and the theme! Cool presents. I adore stuff from Lush! And the book seems cool :D

    HEY GUYS! Is anyone on GoodReads? Long story short, I’m a part of this convention called YALLWEST and I’m trying to set up a group to help spread the word and let some really awesome authors connect with readers. If anyone wants to participate in the group or if you have any ideas, please let me know!

    You can add me here: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/38386625-yallwest and we can talk on GR messaging/here about it. :)

    Hope your holidays are going well!

    Merry Christmas, guys! Or, y’know. Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, belated Winter Solstice, etc.

    But hey! I got BOOOOOOOKKKKKKKSSSS!!! YESSSS!
    I meet with my family on Christmas Eve every year to celebrate Christmas. And I now have the City of Ember (!) as well as a book called the Great Tree of Avalon and one ALL ABOUT SNOWFLAKES. Yes, I’m actually reading a nonfiction book. Believe it or not. But I LOVE snowflakes. Anything involving pretty stuff, physics, and a heavy dose of geometry is officially cool in my book. (And srsly guys, no “cool” jokes. Believe me, I’ve heard enough in my short XX years of life.) Snow is wonderful. Darned ironic that I grew up HERE. x_x

    I also got a Lego version of the Minecraft Overworld and a light-up diamond ore thingy. ^-^ Oh, and the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, but I think that was a mistake because I had said I wanted RISE of the GUARDIANS. Oh well, I’m sure this one’s good too. Oh, and I got Tink (:D) and Thor for Disney Infinity 2.0 (which I have). Perhaps I’ll update this after we open close-family presents this morning. :3

    I got my sis a Black Widow Disney Infinity figure, my mom a book of fairy tales from around the world, and my dad his favorite movie, The Lion in Winter. Also, I drew everyone in my family a pretty picture and framed them (Disney princesses and dragons ^-^).

      Very late merry Christmas to you too! I thought I replied to this a while back but evidently I haven’t… *is confused*
      BOOOKS!!!!!!! City of Ember YES and I actually read non-fiction books to sometimes for the heck of it because, you know, knowledge and stuff.

      Cool! Guardians of the Galaxy is an epic movie too if you’re into that stuff. I love it personally.

    Update on my liiiiife:

    I’m in a fabulous mood!

    I’m helping out at a golf tournament from Wednesday to Saturday and I’m really excited even though I know literally zilch about golf because we’re missing school! But I need to wake up at 5:30 to get there on time. BUT four days with my friends so YES!
    I am rather overexcited.

    Also that geography coursework thing I posted earlier where I was pretending I was working is FINALLY OVER AND DONE WITH YES.

    Bastille’s mixtape VS. is out.

    Ed Sheeran is coming (and I’m not going but oh well.)

    My friend won a Marie (from the aristocats) plushy in a claw machine! Then the rest of us tried like nine times each and won nothing.

    It’s nearly Christmas holidays. Next week is our last week at school. Yay!

    I have a Maths exam though. And an English assessment. Ugh.

    The UK government has decided to make all the exams way harder. This annoys me.

    I was crowned queen of fabulous.

    I went upside down on a thing for the first time in my life! It was terrifying.

    And then my friends made my go into this 4D simulator thing where you kill giant spider which was terrifying because I’m arachnophobic but I was also ace at it because I just closed my eyes and shot at everything.

    We did Secret Santa in class and I got these awesome earphones because my friend told my Santa that I was complaining about my broken ones. First time in my three years with this form that I’ve gotten something useful!

    I’m currently reading the Midnighters trilogy by Scott Westerfeld who also wrote the Uglies series (Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras) and I’m on the third one and it’s reaaaaallllyyyy good.

    ANYWAY!

    What are you lot reading? I say you lot but really the only one who’s been on recently is YKW. How’s your life?

    I’ve posted a lot recently so I’m quite surprised by the length of this post but I guess I never posted anything significant.

    BYE!

     
    • Avalon 10:58 am on December 12, 2014 Permalink | Reply

      Hey! YOU’RE READING THE MIDNIGHTERS TRILOGY!? :D Awesome! I loved those books. Especially because… well, I probably shouldn’t say that. Even though it’s the reason I found out about that series in the first place. ._. Urgh. But I loved that series! (Knowing what you do about me, you may or may not be able to figure it out…)
      Oh, and ARISTOCATS! Actually, I like that movie for a rather similar reason. (Maybe I’ll email you why or something, although my dad would still frown upon that cuz I’ve ever actually SEEN you.)

      Update: Sooooo this weekend is crazy, but in a good way (Christmas shopping and swordfighting practice :D). I was up doing homework until almost 11 last night because of my obnoxiously disorganized science teacher (have I mentioned her before?), but next week is my last with her so YAY. Of course, then I start two AP classes. -.- But CHRISTMAS BREAK! I’m super excited. I’m doing drawings for presents for my family members (and possibly my friends, but then it becomes a matter of who gets one and who doesn’t, which I really kinda want to avoid). And that’s about it. Basically. I’ve been, touring colleges, also. :)

      • paperclip123 7:17 am on December 17, 2014 Permalink | Reply

        I have a feeling it’s for the reason I think it is but I won’t say because, you know, internet. But then that wouldn’t fit with the Aristocats. Unless I don’t know that about you. I don’t know. This is all very cryptic.

        SWORDFIGHTING WHAT
        Aww, man. You’ve mentioned her. Rubbishy teachers are so annoying.

        CHRISTMAS BREAK IS APPROACHING. Literally EVERYTHING is festive it’s so nice! :)

          I NEVER HAVE TO BE IN HER CLASS AGAIN HAHAHA
          Burning paper is bad for the environment, but I dumped them in the recycling very emphatically indeed.

          And yes, swordfighting. Well, sword, anyway. We don’t actually fight each other per se. It didn’t go too well – the girl next to me was not being very space-conscious and cut me. >_< I now have a TERRIBLE GASH (about 2 mm long) on my left thumb.

          And Christmas! I'll post pictures of the drawings I'm making for my family and a few of my friends as gifts. I'm doing Disney princesses for the girls and HTTYD dragons for the boys. :3

          In other news, I have come down with a very bad cold this week. It seems to happen EVERY finals week. X0 But I'm feeling much better than yesterday. And I aced my first two finals! ^-^ (Including the one from the AGH teacher!) My third one was… eh, I'll probably still get an A or A+ in the class thanks to all the extra credit. The fourth one is tomorrow.

            Oh hey, and I finished a book that my friend K******* wrote (by the way, in case I want to talk about my friends, I have three that may likely come up: M*****, A*****, and K*******. I haven’t decided on codenames for them yet, so oh well. Can’t decide, especially on A*****’s.), which reminds me that I need to read SD’s and Nina’s books both sometime. I wonder how much of the money they actually get from purchases.

          Teheheh. Actually, “swordfight” is kiiiind of too strong a word. I’m in karate, weapons division. So I learn FORMS with weapons. Which technically could be used to fight real enemies, but I have never done so. And I am in possession of two very cool swords. ^-^
