eagle project

Posted by Tavakai , in Life, I guess. Aug 26 2012 · 467 views

yeah so I'm emailing people back who wanted to help me with my eagle project and wondering whether they'll judge me for doing so at 2:30 in the morning and also a couple weeks after most of them sent them

(in case anyone's wondering I'm doing genealogy indexing which is basically putting photographed census records and draft cards and stuff into a searchable database so people can look up their family history and stuff, and also I have until november before I turn 18 so I have to hurry since I want to index 10,000 names. don't worry guys I have a friend who did 15k and he finished in time)

why did I come to bzp to post about this the world may never know

if I do get my eagle it'll definitely be after my premier membership runs out though because I have a month left I think so I won't be able to tell you guys about it here

edit: holy cow there isn't autocapitalization???????????????????
bzpower is looking pretty fancy

Pictures From My Comics/epic

Posted by Tavakai , in Uncategorized, BZPower Mar 27 2012 · 359 views

So I had this story that was originally going to be made as a comic, and then ended up being made as an epic because it was taking too long.

I ended up making small pictures with the chapter names for each chapter, and the best of these I'm posting in full here:

I have two versions of this, one that's blurred and one that isn't.

Crazy Bus

Posted by Tavakai , in Life, I guess. Mar 19 2012 · 588 views

So, I woke up 20 minutes late today, and had to run around my house and take breakfast with me in order to get to the bus stop on time.

Then I ended up waiting, and waiting, and waiting for the bus to get there, along with the other people at my stop. After about twenty minutes, I went back home and got my mom to get me a ride.

I found out later from other people on my bus that it had apparently shown up 20 minutes early, and had basically just driven to school because nobody was out that early. And then they sent a different bus, which apparently arrived within a minute or two after I went back home. So once I saw my friend at school, instead of saying hi or anything, I was just like, "Get a car. Now." :P

(He's the one with the license; I haven't had an interest in it so I don't even have a learner's permit even though I've been old enough to get one for almost two and a half years. Working on it, though.)

So yeah, crazy day going on. Luckily there's a furlough day on Friday, and then I'm off for spring break; hopefully I can see the Hunger Games sometime then too.


Important - About Bzpcc#1

Posted by Tavakai , in Serious Business, BZPower Mar 15 2012 · 413 views
BZPCC#1, comics contest, mystery and 3 more...
First of all, thanks to everyone who voted for my entry in the comics contest; otherwise I wouldn't be writing this right now because I wouldn't be Premier.

But that's not what this is about.

There were two entries that didn't make the deadline for the contest and thus didn't make it in. They had tons of work put into them, and I feel bad about how they didn't even get the chance to be voted on, since they're both really awesome and probably would have bumped mine down a few places.

Can't change the fact that they didn't get in, but their authors have posted them now, so you can all read and post and whatnot.

Also keep in mind that both of these as currently posted are incomplete, and will be added to as time goes on. Venom's is daily; Kahi's is less often (and to the best of my knowledge I would assume there's only one or two parts left for his).


Christmas Stuff

Posted by Tavakai , in Life, I guess. Dec 27 2011 · 283 views

Candy, peanuts, and an orange (everyone at my house gets these in their stocking every year)
$30 gift card to Fry's
A gray shirt
A Super Mario shirt
Harry Potter 2012 calendar (third Harry Potter calendar I've had in a row)
Phone (has an Internet browser, and while I mostly prefer the 3DS one, this one can play videos online, which is a plus) - this is also my first phone ever
Netflix (this applies to my whole family)
Chuck seasons 3-4 (going to try to watch these, than catch up on season 5 so I can watch this show as it comes out before it ends)
Cowboys and Aliens (opened and watched on Christmas Eve)
probably some other stuff that I'm forgetting


Taming A Wild Wolf

Posted by Tavakai , in Random stuff Dec 23 2011 · 330 views

I met this wolf in the forest, and it looked like it wanted to kill me. It probably had a hard life of whatever it is wolves do with their life besides kill stuff and eat stuff and run around in the forest. You know, that's it. It probably just didn't find much satisfaction in killing stuff and eating stuff and running around in the forest, so it probably wanted more stuff in its life. It probably wanted opposable thumbs, too. And maybe vocal cords so it could speak English. And not just English, but French! Yes, this wolf wanted to speak French! But it couldn't because it was a wolf. So he was sad.

Anyway, I found this wolf. I found him in the forest. He was trying to kill me. Lucky for me, I had a bone in my backpack thingy or wherever it is I keep my stuff. So I took out the bone, and I right clicked the wolf, and all of a sudden he didn't want to kill me anymore. He's happy. I turned his life all around just by a click. Now he's going to do so many amazing things.


While I Still Have A Blog

Posted by Tavakai , in Serious Business Dec 21 2011 · 293 views

Because I feel like it.

First off, we'd like to note that the religion and politics rules in the forums are very strict, whereas in the blogs, we tend to be a little loose in those areas.

Therefore, before the Premier stuff ends, I'm getting this through.

And I'm including the "not allowed" parts just as a reminder to make sure nobody takes this in the wrong direction.


Allowed in blogs:

  • Mentioning your religion.
  • Mentioning religion-tied holidays
  • Explanations of religious holidays (just don’t get too in-depth. If it starts a debate/flame war, it will be removed.)
Not allowed in blogs:
  • Bashing of other religions
  • “This religion is better.”
  • “You should convert to…”
  • Anything you think might spark flame.

I'm Mormon.


Fine in blogs:

  • “I support (X candidate)”
  • "How voting works" entries (and the like)
  • "Go out and vote" entries
Not fine in blogs:
  • Candidate/leader bashing
  • Discussion of major issues
  • Anything you think might spark a debate.

For president, I supported Herman Cain right up until he suspended his campaign, with Bachmann and Santorum second and third. Now, I think I'm supporting Bachmann, with Romney second, and Santorum third.

Unfortunately though, I'm a day too young to vote in 2012 (I turn 18 literally the next day after the election). :P


No More School Until 2012!

Posted by Tavakai , Dec 16 2011 · 259 views

So, had my last day of school of the year. Feels great. Had a party with breakfast, had Super Lunch (extra long lunch that everyone has at the same time), went to a video game party during lunch, and sang Christmas songs in Japanese.

Also, got Mario Kart 7 about a week ago. Every character unlocked, triple stars in 50-100cc, at least one star in every cup, and 1600+ coins. I feel the same way about this game as I did when I saw the E3 preview--I love it.

Don't know who Tavakai is? If you don't go to Artwork II and III, that's understandable. And if you don't know what Artwork II and III are, well... yeah.

He does some spriting (though not enough to release his own kit just yet) and has his own comics.

He's also a member of the International ComicContinuity, a continuity between over a dozen comic makers.

Religion: Mormon
Politics: Conservative but I'm basically almost libertarian except for a few issues
