If you want to follow me my handle on Miiverse is Kohakuchan.
You can also find it here on the website:
Miiverse is pretty awesome and I recommend that everyone checks it out.
UPDATE: There is also an update for streetpass.
You can also post screenshots to Miiverse with the 3DS. To do this suspend the game with the home button. Then open Miiverse and hit post. Choose a screenshot (top or bottom screen) then add some text or a drawing and hit post!
I did have some good things happen though! But first I do want to thank a few people. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for all of you.
These people are (in no particular order):
Jedi Master J.
My friends at Squishbag
My darling Aleks
And pretty much everyone I've talked to this year
Seriously, this past year has been tough and sadly I don't foresee things getting better anytime soon. Physically and emotionally it has been tough. More than once my thoughts turned dark. But my friends have been a great help. Thank you!
My dad was home for Thanksgiving and is doing much better. He is taking things easy right now.
In more good news on Thanksgiving we got to play a bit of 4-player Super Mario 3D World(Thanks Alku!) with the family that hosted us when we had to evacuate. The game is a lot of fun with four people and you should all try it.
We also went to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire today with them, I fully recommend that movie too.
I also managed to pick up The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds using amazon gift cards from doing some surveys. This game is really good, the best Zelda game in ages. It has some amazing puzzles and feels like a classic Zelda game.
Unfortunately, upon arriving home today, we could smell burning in the car, so we opened the hood. It needs oil... but... it appears there is an oil leak somewhere too. So this is another thing we have to deal with so our car doesn't break. Ughhhhh >_<
We are still getting information on contractors for our house and such, we met with one who claims that they can come very close to the amount that NY Rising wants to give out. Hopefully this will work out.
Bad news, FEMA rent money is gone and then there is our cat.
As you know our cat, Pickles had some major health issues and she had to stay overnight at the veterinarian office for three days. She was on an IV and getting shots. In her health condition most cats would have been knocked out. She is a little fighter and kept moving. She followed the treatment plan and improved very fast. It will include insulin for her diabetes and medicine for an infection she has.
Sadly she is diabetic and will have to get two daily insulin shots, the good news is cats can get better. This would be ideal as the insulin cost $200 a bottle. Which is a lot.
The cost of her stay depleted a lot of the funds we had managed to save up as it cost $3000.
Honestly though, I don't think it would have been right to give up an our pet, especially as she fought on and got better. (And she wanted to kill the vets.)
She is home and she had a little check up yesterday with them and she has continued to improve.
Needless to say this week has sucked.
In all of the chaos I wasn't able to post the story last Sunday. I will be continuing to post them and I will post one tomorrow. As a bonus though I did find another cute story that I am considering posting in addition. I am also considering testing a few new things such as a mini-series that will be posted on my blog (and eventually elsewhere) called You Should Play. It will focus on games. I already have the first one picked out and it follows the LGBT theme. I think it will be enjoyed and a pretty cool thing to do. The first game will also be free to download.
So yes a lot of bad things have happened but I am trying so hard to not give up. Even though honestly, sometimes that is all I want to do.
Such a massive tree. It is huge.
We made our way to another dungeon and we became afflicted with spiky balls.
After dealing with Mothula and a ton of other beasties we found a large door...
And we found a very deadly plant! It ate a Korok named Makar! I think I'm next!
Once we managed to beat the evil plant we found Makar! (He was covered in plant goo! Ewww!)
After getting some supplies we headed out to the great sea....
A G-GHOST SHIP!
Next time on Kohaku plays Wind Waker HD we explore more of the great sea!
For those who are interested and have a Miiverse account you can follow along here:
We'll start off at Dragon Roost Island... we met Zephos...
And we wrote a little poem:
Cyclos is red. Zephos is green. The gods of the wind can be pretty mean.
This led to an interesting comment on Miiverse which can be viewed here: https://miiverse.nin...CAADzUgNpeNQssQ
We talked to Komali who was hugging Din's Pearl:
Can we just stop and comment on how amazing that room looks?
And we made our way into the first dungeon:
After killing a bunch of things we made our way to the boss: Gohma.
And we promptly died taking the picture...
After some coming back to life... the boss bit the dust.
We got some nice words from Komali and wondered why a Tingle bottle was in a pond...
And then made our way into the great sea without weapons...
We were promptly eaten.
Well, it has been fun, but seeing as Nintendo has officially shuttered the service... I guess we won't be able to send crazy things to each other anymore.
I'll miss those crazy notes...
And the stationary...
Farewell, Swapnote, you were one of my favorite apps on the 3DS.
I'll miss sending crazy and horrible drawings to you guys ;_;
(Rumor down the grapevine has it the move was also to make way for Miiverse on the 3DS.)
I have more links to add in the future too... a link to the project I've been working on for ages.
Enjoy my Miiverse and Twitter. Expect a lot of Nintendo based things on both.

This list will be updated if anyone is interested and it is by no means complete. Feel free to ask me about anything!
Let's start with saying it was HOT HOT HOT!
Good news first!
I managed to pick up my first Lego set in ages as it was 50% off at Walmart, the box was opened and the stickers and one instruction book was missing, but overall worth it. It was set #76003 Superman: Battle of Smallville. It is hard to pass up a Lego set that is discounted so much! I also picked up one of the Series 10 Minifigs for $1 on clearance. It was the last one they had and I got a nice baseball player. I almost forgot the satisfying feel of Lego as they snapped together.
Atlus just released a game that we also decided to pick up using some Amazon credit that we have, Shin Megami Tensei IV. I played a little bit of it and the second tutorial/lesson killed me. They said it would be hard and they were NOT kidding. Of course this got Aleks and myself a $30 eShop credit and we can't figure out what game to put that towards! If anyone has opinions I would love to hear them.
Earthbound. Just Earthbound.
We also had two lovely volunteer groups at our house this past week tearing things out and helping to remove parts of the condemned house. It was hard to watch, and I didn't know there was still so much stuff left. The house no longer has floors and a lot of the insulation is gone. The good news is that it was built before they started using asbestos. If it had that removing the house would cost so much more. We have made progress with getting the permits for it (and for our house). The process is more complicated because the lots are technically too small for the houses by modern codes.
You can see all of the new images right here.
That is where the good news ends. Just when we started to get progress... our car broke down. The thermostat and its housing and cables pretty much exploded. This delay has cost us more money (that we don't have) and more time. The irony here is that we had just purchased an air conditioner for Aleks' grandfather and we were taking it home. To get ourselves and the air conditioner the three miles back home it cost us about $40. Not to mention the cost of fixing the car. Here is a picture of our car on the flatbed!
If so add me!
As for fruit, I have oranges, and well pretty much all of the fruit growing now. So I can supply fruit if you need it.
Have an awesome little banner instead!
Well, we've been running around to appointments almost every day for various things. It has been very exhausting and there hasn't been much time to relax. Needless to say I haven't been on BZPower much, nor have I been able to finish something I've been meaning to get done.
Sadly, the government still sucks at getting us aid regarding Sandy. FEMA money for housing is going to run out soon... and insurance is still trying to not pay anything. Needless to say money is running out and I will be honest I am freaking terrified of what might happen.
In my limited free time and relaxation time I have been playing a few video games on the Wii U and 3DS, in part thanks to a birthday gift of an eShop card from a friend. That went to Animal Crossing/Fire Emblem DLC/The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons/Ages. I have also been enjoying my 2nd Super Metroid playthrough. So gaming has been a good way to relieve a bit of stress. Heck aside from a few other places on the internet it has been the only way of stress relief for us.
Hopefully I can get my big gaming related project online soon. This is something that I've had in my heart in various forms for years. Seeing it come to life has definitely helped keep me going.
I would also like to thank Jedi Master J. He is still awesome and seriously one of the best people I know.
Anyway, I'm going to hope that I can be online a bit more this month. If anything I will be posting my E3 thoughts... if I'm not playing Animal Crossing.
Can we just move to an Animal Crossing town? It seems really peaceful and stable and we could really use that.
My avatar on here and my twitter avatar have something to do with my secret project... I wonder what it is?
I've been playing a lot of Lego City: Undercover for the Wii U... I wonder just how good that game is?
The Rayman challenges app on the Wii U is a lot of fun too.
I got to hang out in NYC with my boyfriend and an awesome friend yesterday. My legs hurt from all the walking.
Iron Man 3 is awesome go watch it.
As for life things... still nothing new on the house front and we can't fix things until the insurance company gives us money. And we can't accept the small offers they have given us as you can't fix a house with the numbers they are offering and ahhhhhh.
Free Comic book day brought us free comics.
The project Aleks and I are working on now has a mascot character and I am so excited for it.
Jedi Master J is an awesome friend and one of the coolest people ever.
Also it is my Birthday and this month feels good. This month feels good to me.
