So today I got in a package with some ultra rare collectibles and I thought I would brag and post some pictures: Sorry to say in advance that this collection is not for sale. Full pic of collection: Kanohi/Helmets: Closeup of the top 3 rows. Got room for a Gold Hau and Platinum Avohkii up top and if you've got a Metru Red Huna for sale, let me know! : Kanohi Nuva: Krana: Krana "Va": Krana-Kal (Yes, I have two WMKK and a whole blank row for any GPKK I may get in t
Well, once again I've succeeded in staying away from here for far too long. This last year has been quite adventurous. Turakii #1 Lavasurfer and I are engaged! How crazy is that? We plan to be married on July 28, 2013 and the days just aren't going by fast enough. Now I've just gotta keep saving money for the wedding... After spending a few months in northern VA/DC, I got to my first post out in Santiago, Chile. I've got a huge apartment and I am absolutely loving it. Since I've bee
Goodness, has it really been over a year since I've been here?! Wow, well I'll do my best not to let that happen again. What can I do for an update on over a year of my life? Well for starters I'm 21 now. I can hardly figure out how that happened other than attributing it to the passage of time. I have now been in a relationship with Turakii #1 Lavasurfer for 2 years which has been absolutely amazing and I can't wait to see where she and I will be in another 2 years. I completed my Assoc
So as of today, I'm 20.
I'm in my last quarter of my Associates program at ITT Tech for Computer & Electronics Engineering. (Graduation Sept. 3)
I have Graphic Novels 8 and 9 and am praying for the eventual confirmation of GN10.
I just spent my very first paid vacation in New York and Michigan having a week and a half visit with the beautiful, super amazing girl, whom I've had the privilege of dating for over 2/3 of a year now, that you all know as Turakii #1 Lavasurfer.
I have t
Just got back from my 4th visit to Turakii's house last night. I had a lot of fun and am now getting ready for a few really long weeks.
I'm going to be in Florida this weekend from Friday-Sunday. After that, I work the same schedule for two weeks following this coming weekend: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, with school being on Wednesday morning, Friday night, and Saturday morning, and church being on Sunday morning.
Sleeping in... I will sure miss you.
So... Turakii and I have been going out for 10 weeks now =D
I am now in the committee (only 6 people in it) of the new ISCET (International Society of Certified Electronics Technicians) Student Chapter that started at the ITT Tech campus that I go to. Because of this, I can take 4 tests required for ISCET Certification at a discounted price and I get access to lots of online study material for free . Hopefully by March, I should be a full-fledged Certified Electronics Technician.
I'm leaving today so I can visit my father's grave and take care of some other business concerning him. My flight for Texas leaves in 2 and a half hours. I won't have much access to computers while I'm there, but I'll try to peak in if I can.
Just wanted to update everyone about how my life has been going lately.
September really stunk. I had a horrible Physics teacher and the whole class was failing. I managed to get out with a C... so that hurt my GPA. My little brother got the chicken pox. Then my mom and 9 year old sister got into a car accident where the van was totaled. Thankfully they're both ok. Then I found out that my biological father (my mom was remarried when I was 4), whom I did know, was murdered back on Sep
So glad the forums are back!
Not a whole lot to update on other than the facts that I am still working my Mata Nui/Matoran Universe map-thingy. I'm entering my 2nd year of College (man how that happened fast!). And two weeks ago, I was in NY visiting Turakii & the family and had what I would probably call, the greatest week of this year by far. Hoping to visit them again soon!
Well as of right now, I've completed the first part of a very long and exensive project I've just started working on. Last year, we were given a picture of the Matoran Universe in a map form:
And then just before that, we had seen Mata Nui himself:
Obviously, the Matoran Universe doesn't seem to be built to the scale of Mata Nui's body. But I realized that I had the ability to change the way I look at that map. So over the next few months, I'm going to be drawing individual part
I got it today! I've read half of it so far. I would definately recommend it, because it's a thorough reminiscence of the first 8 years of Bionicle with occasional comments from Makuta Teridax looking back at the past. It's definately worth the $20 (that includes basic shipping costs) and it's hardcover to top it all off.
Just to condradict Ta-Metru Defender when he says that I'm dead, I'm... hold on
*wipes off dust from blog*
I'm posting a blog entry to say that I'm alive and I'll try to be more consistent with my blogging and not let it die for 3 and a half months again.

T'was the night before Christmas
And up at the North Pole
Everybody's going crazy
Everything's out of control
The toy shop is on fire
The toys melting on the shelves
And you can hear Mrs. Claus scream
One can never trust those elves!"
Unless something drastic happens fast
Say hello to the ghost of Christmas past
Because Rudolph's puking boughs of holly
Old Saint Nick ain't all that jolly
And the sleigh's in the shop
'Cause it's broken down
But Christmas won't st
A while ago (nearly 2 years ago) my mom was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She's had flareups here and there. Many times she's just in constant pain, and regardless of that, she's been strong and continued on with life.
Today, she went to the Rheumatoligist to see if she could switch to a less intense medication than the one she's currently on. She had tests taken today and now it turns out that she has the beginnings of fibromyalgia, and ostioporosis. Obviously it's not me being
I just got Skillet's new Comatose Comes Alive CD. Haven't listened to the whole thing yet, but those live tracks are amazing (the violins in Collide were done masterfully). Anyways, just had to brag that I got something new. Now I need to get the Incredible Hulk soon.
Did everybody order one before I did causeing it to be on backorder or am I just going crazy? When my grandmother had me order the Yellow Jetrax T6 set, I swear it said it would arrive in 3-5 business days. Now it says that it hasn't shipped and it won't be available for 2-6 weeks . I have no problem waiting for it, but my Grandmother wanted to see it built and she's going back to Texas on Saturday.
*sighs in resignation*
OK, well I went with TMD's ever-so-wise advice and said yes. My grandmother gave me her credit card and had me charge it on Target.com. In a nutshell, I'll be getting the yellow Jetrax T6 hopefully by Wednesday.
Just had to say I got the Klakk .
Nobody had commented last week on the entry before my last entry, but does anybody think I should go ahead and get the Yellow Jetrax, despite having the blue one, or just not worry about getting it.
Keep in mind, I woulnd't be paying for it, my grandmother would. Why I'm so indecisive over this, I'm not sure.
P.S. : Gas is now $2.87 where I live . *loves life*
