A story of maples, by Mushyrulez
“That’ll be 200,000,000 mesos, please.”
“Fuck this shit!”
Kiritoe spat on the ground. Unfortunately, MesoStory was a 2-D side-scrolling platformer, and Kiritoe pressed F6 to activate the emoticon representing ‘spitting on the ground’.
Unfortunately, MesoStory did not have such an emoticon, for it was a shitty Korean game nobody played that had horrible pixellation even though the technology exists to do otherwise. Case in point:
Instead, Kiritoe spat onto his outstretched naked thigh.
…He soon realized the full ramifications of his act.
“Damn, I should probably wear some clothes now.”
In my defense it is sweltering»
…Yeah, who even cares about this anymore.
Anyways, as I still have not enough content (going to watch Episode 1 of Black Lagoon after posting this and browsing through forums though 8D), here’s just a list of what I want to do in summer.
As listing out everything would be too tedious, I’m just going to concentrate on ⑨ things, and rebump them when finished.
1. Work on a flash game. Attempt to finish it. (Obviously fail in the attempt).
2. Get to level 50 in Maplestory from level 0 by the 13th of July. I was going to attempt this, but… I’ve decided to quit, as it’s pretty pointless now. So instead of this, I’m going to finish Imperishable Night on Easy Mode for all 12 combinations starting with one life in both Final A and B. Why so much? Because I still suck too much to try normal mode. Or easy mode on any other game. >:O
3. Archive all files that need to be archived. Backup files. BACKUP THOSE FREAKING BOOKMARKS
4. Reorganize the blog. As you know, it looks sorta bare now, so I’ll probably just change the font type and call it “reorganized”.
5. Learn shorthand. Parents have been nagging at me to “write better”, so… shorthand. 8D
6. Have a decent understanding of Japanese and French. There are mandatory languages in high school, so I want to get ahead of them so that I can learn more.
7. Learn to draw stuff. I can’t draw stuff. I need to learn to draw stuff.
8. Remap keyboard to Dvorak layout. And then learn to type. Dvorak should be somewhat faster than QWERTY, and speed is all I care about so… yeah.
⑨. Be Cirno. …No.
And thus concludes a meaningless post that none of you had to read.
…And yes, as I mentioned in my previous blog post, Maple grinding is complete. I have reached level 30. YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
..Anyways, I still have a couple of trades to attend to, but Maple is almost completely off my list of stuff to do now….!
So for today and tomorrow, I’ll be browsing through forums, google reader (ahem over 1000 entries), and youtube; so I won’t really be doing anything productive…. WHATEVER
…School-wise, two important exams are coming up next week, like, spend-money important exams, so I /should/ be studying for them. Eh, I’ll do that later.
I’ve finished the first draft of my report, but need to finish it, and have 4 more assignments that are now overdue, and another project to start research on. However, I should be done with overdue stuff by the end of this week, as long as something like *cough cough* MapleStory *cough cough* doesn’t hold another event… By the way, I’m not addicted.
…Anyways, yeah… that’s the plan for the next few days. My desk looks messy as hell too, so I might want to organize that >_> Link (haven’t been doing anything):oyage
^ Facebook is being evil, so zynga might withdraw and start their own system…
Yep, today is mah birthday…!
…So basically, I spent most of the day at home without my parents, which meant I was able to do anything I wanted to do…!
Which means I accomplished a lot, including getting to level 30 in MapleStory (more details tomorrow), watching the remaining aired episodes of Angel Beats!, and… stuff.
Instead of giving me a birthday present (to the best of my knowledge), my parents instead went to a friend’s house. Not that I’m complaining; only because of that was I able to do random internet stuff.
…Their friend had to move, so we looted a lot of awesome stuff, including a computer with a monitor, a desk lamp, a graphing calculator, 3 coffee tables, and 2 desks. @_@
Today was one of the better days of my life :D
Anyways, links and videos:
^ …5 reasons why Android’s app store is better than Apple’s. Honestly, IMO apple’s not going to survive for very long in their current industry; then again, they keep on shifting focuses…
^ …A composition by a… person. It’s in two parts, listen to the second part in the link…!
^ OH MY GAWD SEIZURE DANMAKU AND IT HAS MUSHROOMS TOO OH MY GOD AMAZING (SEIZURE WARNING OH MY GAWD)
Anyways, back onto the organizational track. I recently gained 3 levels (in one day :O), and so now I am level 27…
…The event ends on Tuesday (or Wednesday, I forgot). As Sat – Mon is X_X if I play, that leaves only one day to gain 3 levels…
…Fortunately, I’ve completed the Evan treasure chest thing, so now I have 7 free inventory spaces, and found that the ariant PQ goes up till level 30; so I can get to level 30 and then attempt to get the chair, dying once in a while to balance EXP.
Thus, my organizational voyage for maplestory is soon to be over.
…Unfortunately, my disappearance from other fields have… caused some.. discrepancies.
....Google Reader and Twitter extensions don't work past 4 digits...
…And yeah. So links:
^ …A Unity Guidebook has been released… check it out…?
^ Some people get angry at some guy mocking some indian guy with a weird name… AND IT’S POLITICAL AS WELL
…So now, my goal is MapleStory Level 30.
…I just got to level 24…
What I have now is essentially 5 days (I don’t play Sat-Mon) to gain 6 levels. This means that I’ll just need to gain 2 levels tomorrow, and one level every day after that…
…But here’s a snag.
I also need to finish the Ariant PQ (because I’m a collectible-fanatic), as well as the Evan Everyday Event and miscellaneous crap like that. Now, the crayons dropped for another quest only drop on Thursday, Saturday, and Monday, but that specific event ends on Sunday. So I’ll have to log on for 30 minutes during those days, which happen to be doable, suicidal, and suspicious, respectively (parents home, MapleStory = LOLWTF).
…Anyways, that’s my plan, and it’s not going to work, but WHATEVER :D
^ ..An interview with an indie game developer…!
^ NASA has a conference tomorrow about the search for extraterrestrial life…
^ Hamlet’s set to release on DVD and Blu-Ray… soon. I have no idea what they’re talking about. :/
^ …More than 7200 people were charged for not wearing seatbelts on Ontario highways…
^ ..Some person writes their thesis on… dwarf fortress. LOLWUT
^ They found where to put the “Extremely Large Telescope”! Yes, that’s what it’s called. Go science.
^ Marasy plays something… Argh parseeeeeeeeeeeee
^ …Rock paper scissors can cause people to go insane…
So, I’ve completed the two most important assignments of the past week; however, I still have 2 overdue assignments, plus a report at the end of the week….
…Thus, my plan for this week is to make sure I have no overdue stuff.
Internet-wise, I haven’t looked at google reader for god knows how long, so I’ll have to get that done.
However, I have come up with a much larger problem….
…Maplestory’s event is ending.
Which means it’s time to grind up some 8 levels to level 30 so that I can get those limited time items! This will undoubtably drain my time, but I will stop as soon as the event is finished…
…yeah, noone’s believing me there, right..?
Anyways, the next few posts will be boring and contentless like this one… but whatever.
^ …Zynga (farmville, anyone..?) makes over $1,000,000… a day.
…Really only one link here:
^ Iceland’s the cleanest country in the world, even with an active volcano…
….Anyways, it seems that I hit 70 views a day yesterday somehow; I think someone decided to browse through all of my archives. If you’re that person, tell me who you are >_>
I’m still working on my assignments, so that’s why there’s minimal content…
…Also, the maplestory event is ending soon, so I may have to concentrate on that as well… sigh.
Too cute to resist now~
…After browsing through my small sheet music collection, I stumbled upon some of my old MS songs, so I decided to play them…
…After playing through them all, I realized that I should look into going back into MS now…
..It’s been something like, 3, 4 years since I last touched that game; I have no idea how it’s like now, though hopefully they aren’t putting that much stress on the cash shop as they used to…
…So, if any of you are playing MS, add me, I’ll make an account and maybe get back to it…
…However, I will quit if it sucks as it did before. :/
^ A collection of… real-life pokemon..! :D
^ How peering is changing the shape of the internet; just a snippet from a NYtimes article, search around for that article if you want…!
^ …Some person makes really, really humourous… statements… in response to questioning….
^ …New google development, google reader play…! Haven’t tried it, but hopefully it’s better than Buzz… -_-
^ ..downloadable content for Modern Warfare 2 is going to be released soon…!
^ A person’s solution for creating easy to transition translations for games…!
^ …Talking about Youtube Partners…. old article, but interesting topic; it’s like freelance coding (well, almost exactly the same, really)…
^ ..Same topic as above, I guess…
…That’s all for today; will touch up on the site design… LATER. XP
