Making news posts is always something that riles me up over what I should actually put here. On the one hand there's a part of me that want to writes up a detailed entry about how I'm feeling or my views on certain events taking place on Newgrounds, however that side is usually immediately countered by the side which reminds me that no one reads or cares about my opinion and much more people would simply prefer a one liner and a picture.
Well what is there to say about the moment? The BBS awards are causing delicious drama and reminding myself just how many people don't like me. You can't really say that you don't care about them at all, because it's people's opinion's on you, something which almost all people care a lot about. If someone says something nice about, you're happy and feel like some sort of role model for that person. A warm feeling of pride emits from within over the thought that this person looks up to you in the same way that you may have done for other users.
On the other hand there's the kick in the stomach you get when you see someone make a negative comment about you or put you in a bad category. Someone you don't even know, someone you've never done anything to doesn't like you. It's hard to shrug it off, it makes you feel like you've wasted this year/half year of posting because in the end everyone thought what you had to say was shit. Some people might "but er der it gives people an incentive to improve dem derselves"". (notice how I make the hypothetical quote of the person with a view different from my own appear stupid, ingenius) Well theoretically yes it would, but in reality people are stubborn creatures and once they have an opinion of someone lodged in their brains it becomes very hard to shake it short of them turning water into wine in front of their faces and dying on a plank of wood.
Internet drama aside I've been wasting time on TF2 and WoW for the most part. Yes WoW, and not even on my own account, I've been leveling up a friend so he can get to 70, at which point I will go back on my own level 70 so we can all play together. I don't particularly love WoW as a game, it is fun and pretty but not enough to warrant playing it on my own. Rather the fun comes from playing with people you know, over skype/teamspeak/etc., and having a laugh whilst playing it together. Technically this makes any game better, but it's particularly good in an RPG type game such as WoW, where you can all level up, quest and raid together. I spend most of my day just sat on skype talking with my buddies, which is what I've missed about WoW, actually interacting with people and having fun...
: not IRL buddies lol (except one) don't go thinking I have a life
Speaking of IRL, let's not. I'm sure nobody could care less about my life nor do they want to read me droning on about it since I sure don't unless it's a person I care about, which I don't think many people do about me on here. I don't see why people need to make a topic or a news bulletin every time they fart or cough, but I suppose some people enjoy it, like the type of people who watch soaps.
Flash has been hanging over me like a dark foreboding shadow, beckoning me to curdle back into her ghastly talons of tweening and patience. I really like doing flash, it's been one of the only things in my life where I felt like I've achieved something, but have never been happy with my work. Probably sounds sad but I was so excited and happy when I got frontpage/daily 2nd, like ever since I was a kid I used to look up to the flash artists on this site as some sort of geniuses and wanted to be so much like them. For days I would sit her watching flash after flash, spending whole days at a time watching every episode of Bonus Stage or Space Tree and dreaming of being as good as them. I will get back to it, I know it, it's never too late. Just having trouble getting the house free for doing voices, hate other people hearing me do that in the house.
Seems a bit of a waste even loading up MSN nowadays, seeing as I only really talk to about 3 different people (don't hold me to that number). People just seem to be talking to me less, feels pointless having such a big contact list of these people I barely know or ever talk to. It's not that I don't want to talk to the, I'd gladly talk to anyone most of the time, I'm just not good at starting conversations usually.....or I'm a bore to talk to. Just be nice to have actual conversations with new people instead of only being talked to for either a 5 or to post in someone's topic.
Why am I writing all this? Good on you for anyone actually reading this far, I don't know what's got into me. I'm just sitting here with the sniffles typing away like a madman for some reason.
Was wondering if I should change my username to Wooper, I really like it and makes more sense than this name, which people spell wrong half the time or just laugh at.

Thanks, hit me with some feedback so I can tell whether I should bother to do anything again.
