Who thought it was a good idea to make me a featured user?
But fo srs, hi! I'm Ty aka DaCuban, I like long walks on the beach, a nice pair of slacks, ice cream, puppies, wax recordings of Thomas Edison reading the alphabet, and Nena's 99 Luftballons. Uh. I do admin things on Rooster Speak when no one else is around to do admin things, so come and say hi!
Also I'm not like 20, I'm 17. I could've sworn that I hid that age thing forever ago, no clue.
Ask not what your community can do for youAsk what you can do for your country community. Hi guys. I don't think I've actually ever called on you all for really much of anything, but I'm calling in a few favors. My buddy @popfizz is shaving her head for charity, and all of the money is going to St. Jude Children's Hospital. You can read more about it in her journal, or at her tumblr post about it.
I'm also going to include the details from her journal here, in this journal, in case you don't feel like clicking links (which you totally should anyway, because you should donate and you're going to have to click links to do that. Quite the catch 22).
Remember to go to her page here and learn how to donate to this great cause (FOR THE KIDS!)
I’ve been planning to donate my hair in the next few months (I’m about two inches short!), and decided that I can do even more than just donate my hair. I can raise some money for kids at the same time.
If you would like me to shave my head (for the kids!) please donate to St. Jude Children’s hospital! I’ve included a guide here as well as a list of all the incentives for donating. Even just one dollar helps, and will get me to shave my head. Seriously - I’ll do it for even just one donation. I’m in this to help, so the more incentives I can give, the better.
I will post pictures as well as a video when I shave my head.
IF YOU DONATE 25$ OR MORE, I WILL WRITE YOUR NAME IN SHARPIE ON MY HEAD AND HAVE IT UP FOR ALL OF RTX!
After you donate (you can do so through paypal, with credit card, or by check), I’d like you to screenshot the thank you message they show you and send it to me to show me you’ve donated.
Here is the link to a tumblr post with all the information needed. Know that if you don't have a tumblr, I'll post all the thank yous in my journal here on the site.
If you cannot donate, please tweet or signal boost the post or this journal!
It is a really really great cause, so please contribute! Any amount helps!
Tonight's top story: Internet, television, and telephones restored in Cuban's household following a 24 hour outage, due to power purveyor personally punching the Verizon box in the kisser!
Scandal on the Eastern front! Desperate for entertainment following a loss of internet, the residents of the humble, stone age abode forced to find new ways to waste time! Between reading Atonement, doing homework, and *gasp* actually speaking to one another, the residents of the communicationless home actually communicated!
Yeah, so the power company accidentally knocked out our internet, TV, and phone service. So I was stuck living like a Neanderthal. Horrible, I know.
Anyway, life update! I got into University of Maryland, which is currently the cheapest option for college. I also applied to be a Guardian, so fingers crossed on that. First semester of my last year of high school ended well, I'm happy about that. Unfortunately my boss called today and told me that due to mall renovations, the store that I work at is being closed and they're terminating all employee contracts. So back to the job hunt.
Obligatory end of journal picture of... Kim Jong Un looking at beach sand?
Instant bitchesSo @Sibwarra208 and I have been very busy building in Minecraft. When I say Sib and I, I mostly mean Sib because I've been fucking around doing nothing the whole time. Today, that changed. I built a snow fort, and Sib and I decided to pose for a picture. However, someone (me) forgot to turn off the HUD and
Well shitI had this striking realization that I didn't do anything this year! I was sitting back in my chair, reclining as I read "Everybody Poops" by candlelight when it suddenly hit me that I didn't do anything.
I mean sure, I went to Austin for RTX and met lots of internet friends! And sure, I went to the Rooster Speak Dinner and had probably one of the most fun evenings of my life!
But what about the stuff I did at home? I mean, my internship didn't give me anything but meeting all of my county's elected officials and getting an understanding of the political system!
I wasted so much time doing nothing! All those hours spent on Teamspeak, with people from 6 different continents and hundreds of hours laughing and joking and having fun! I wasted so much time!
My new year's resolution is to never waste time again! I'm only going to do the important things, like spending time with friends, going to new places, trying new foods, and working hard!
Also, no more end of journal .gifs. From this moment on, I'm only doing end of journal pictures of Kim Jong Un.
