Lunar New Year 2014


I hope everyone has great fortune and luck for the year of horse. The horse year is supposed to be good for many people.

So eat lots of yummy food, watch lion/dragon dances, spend time with family, and get lots of red envelopes this year!

(Sorry for such a short post. I will post more about my Lunar New Year once I have some free time from the festivities and schoolwork.)

Half way to 100,000!

Woohoo! GUESS WHAT?!


That is halfway to 100,000! It might not seem a lot but this blog has come a very long way. In about two and a half years, it finally reached 50,000 views with less than 200 posts!

I know I have been slacking a lot but I appreciate each one of my followers that still bother to read this blog.
I also appreciate those random people who come and just visit to learn a little bit about Poptropica or read weird stuff I post.
 I also appreciate Shoeless Panda who was my first co-writer and helped me out a little bit (even though she suddenly vanished months later.)
And Animalfan for attempting to be a writer here.
A huge thanks to my other co-writer and friend, Captain Busy Seagull for taking the time to write his wonderful adventure to "Legendary Swords" and "Poptropolis 2012." (For those wondering where he's been, he is still really busy with school and life so it's uncertain when he will start writing again.)
Another thank you to whomever else I'm forgetting! (Shiny Sun doesn't really care too much about the recognition, in case you are wondering.)

I hope that I have time to post more soon! Right now, I am a month behind schedule on what I want to post. So, it's not that I don't have stories to tell, I just haven't had the time to write them all down in an entertaining way. ^^;
Constant schoolwork is getting to me right now...

Thanks for all the support and hopefully, we can get to that 100,000 views soon!?

Welcome 2014!

Happy 2014 everyone!

I felt like I slacked a lot on my posting in 2013 but I also had a fun/busy year! 
Here are the few highlights of this blog in 2013.
(Petpet= Spongebob. Readers= Gary)
I posted more this year but I felt like I didn't post as much about Poptropica, Fashion, or Book Reviews. Overall, there was a lot of "firsts" in 2013 for me. :)
Now time to see if I followed my New Years Resolutions:

In 2013, I resoluted:
Live life
I'm still alive, right?
Keep up my grades
Still straight A's!
Be more social
Eh... I tried but the school change didn't help.
Help out my parents more
I did this... more or less.
Try to not come online when I have homework (this is gonna be a tricky one)
Haha. No.
Improve my music skills
It's improved but I still get nerves
Post more
I posted much more, for sure.
Make the world a better place
I've been trying to help people I know and don't know when they are having a hard time so I guess I made the world slightly better.
Try new things
I tried being a little more edgy... and more social.
Become a bigger Otaku
This, I didn't have to try at all.

Not too bad... Got most of my resolutions crossed off! 

This year, I'm going to make it short and similar to last years:
  • Post more
  • Keep my grades up
  • Socialize
  • Stop angering parents (not staying up so late, helping out, etc.)
  • Start volunteer work
  • Find a job during summer?
  • Stay healthy
  • Improve my music skills, writing, and reading skills
  • DRAW MORE (added on January 2nd)
  • Confess the guy I like? (Not a resolution but something I want to do during the year.)
Seems pretty easy... but will I do them all? Probably not. Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you had a great 2013 and look forward to the new year!
Let's start this year right!
