      I changed phones yesterday.

      I'm quite sad about it.

      I've been using my old Samsung Exclaim for the past 8 months or so, but my family changed from Sprint to AT&T, so I had to give up my Sprint only slide phone...

      250px-Samsung_Exclaim_M550.jpg

      It slides both ways! I always used the numeric keypad for the T9, but now I have been forced back into the 21st century.

      It's fine though, I finally have something to play music on! I had a Samsung Galaxy S2 in 2012 with all of my music on it, but then it imploded, so I got an iPhone but I didn't transfer my music. Then I had the Exclaim, with hardly any music holding capabilities, so finally I'm up to date.

      I'm not good at downloading apps and being cool though. I'm always paranoid the apps will make my battery life super shitty, since that's happened to me before.

      Anyway, I need some advice on what kind of custom phone case I should buy.

      Here are the pictures I am considering:

      I may possible indulge my Bioshock obsession and zoom in on Booker and Elizabeth.

      But! Twilight Princess is my favorite game of all time....

      I'm confused. Any opinions?

      Went to Let's Play Live. :)
      Had a Blast.
      took some pictures:

      For that last picture, Barbara mumbled, "They'll never know...". She realizes that we can see the picture right? :P

      And my favorite of me and Adam. He basically sat down to fit in the picture with me. : )

      Posted more about it on my blog: themaddtruth.blogspot.com/2015/03/lets-play-live-achiev...

      I'm not super detailed though, because the sheer amount of craziness and awesomeness was indescribable. : )

    • I'm so lost....I need to vent.

      I'm confused about who I am.

      I woke up today super contemplative.....I think watching all of Bioshock 2 last night got my mind wandering, my dreams thinking, and my waking thoughts in a muddle.

      Two or so weeks ago my parents told me that they didn't approve of basically everything in my life:

      I've been in a relationship for 3 years now, 2 of those years long distance, and apparently they do not like that I'm even in this relationship. They don't like that my boyfriend doesn't talk to them the way all of my guy friends do, which is in a super easy-going, friendly way.

      My boyfriend is from Japan, so his customs are different. He bows every time he leaves my house and tries his best to be respectful in all that he says. Apparently that means he can't be trusted by my parents....which is completely whack to me.

      My parents also don't like that I have been very active in an event planning organization on campus.

      I get money from the university to plan fun free events.....how is that bad? I enjoy the planning aspects and I enjoy meeting all of the people and making sure everyone has a good time! What is the damn problem here?

      Next: They dislike my interest in Asian culture.

      First KPop, then the Asian boyfriend, then I joined an Asian Culture Committee underneath the event planning organization, then I planned the university's Lunar New Year 2014 event, plus I took a class about Asian religions.

      They said, "It's like you're trying to become something you're not."

      I'M NOT TRYING TO BECOME ASIAN! Why can't a different culture be interesting to me?

      Okay. I'm American. My last name is Rodriguez. My family is Hispanic, but for my whole life all I've ever heard is how "We're not Mexican, we're Americans of Mexican descent." Soooo...... excuse me if I'm not interested in the culture I was never taught about.

      I love being American, and that is still most important to me, sometimes second to being Texan, but I have always found Asian culture to be infatuating, and now that I have a chance to pursue more knowledge about it, suddenly I'm trying to be someone else?!

      Why can't I make my own damn decisions about what I choose to like and do and participate in?

      In response to me trying to explain that I'm an adult and can decide everything on my own, I get one of three cookie cutter, not-a-real-answer, answer:

      1. We just don't want you to make the same mistakes as us
      2. We just care so much about you
      3. We don't want you to bottle things up inside.

      Sigh.....soon I will be notifying them that un-supportive people will not be allowed to have a say in my life. I'm tired of their opinions muddling up my own thoughts.

      I always knew who I was, but now I am lost.

      My best friend's mother has been diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer among other problems.

      Her father had to quit his job to take care of her, and my best friend works and goes to school full time to help support them.

      I know that this is super specific and you don't know these people, but if RT can get over 1million dollars in a day, I'm hoping you awesome people will help my best friend out.

      I almost feel bad for soliciting donations from people I've never met in person......but only almost bad, because this is so damn important to me and I really need everyone's help...

      Thanks smiley12.gif

      I had a dream that my stuffed animal named "Bunny" (sooo original) was dying and I had to take her to the hospital. Her internal organs were festering....

      My family didn't want me to have anything to do with Bunny, but one guy drove me to the hospital, but the rest of the family was in the car. I had to hide Bunny in a bag underneath some stuff.

      BUT!

      Once I got to the hospital, everything jumped quite a few years later. All of a sudden, I'm Mary-Lousie Parker from Weeds
      weeds.jpg
      And I have another daughter....
      since apparently I had one before.
      Which is also weird bc Nancy Botwin only had boys.

      So, apparently, instead of getting Bunny fixed at the hospital, I came out with a baby....even though I was never pregnant.

      So now I work at a bar, and I run a lot of marathons, and I have two daughters, while I am trying to finish my college.
      Guillermo owns the bar and says I'm not allowed to quit cause I'm his bitch:
      guillermo-diaz_l.jpg

      I kept saying, "I didn't mean to get pregnant!", because I was so incredulous that I randomly had two kids.

      I don't know what I'm even talking about anymore.

    • My Saturday.....

      I started my day off watching a full walkthrough of Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea Episode 2

      www.youtube.com/watch?v=grqC4lvwUe0
      Three-lovely-new-screenshots-from-BioSho

      I DON'T KNOW WHAT I FEEL!
      I still enjoyed it completely and obsessively, but I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT I FEEL!

      I continued my day by sporadically finishing up the 4Kids TV version of The Winx Club

      Bloom-Aisha-Stella-Flora-Tecna-and-Musa-

      I know I'm a child and this show is from 2004, but the storyline holds up very well!
      I was surprised how much I loved the story along with the fun outfits and colors even to this day.
      I've had some of my guy friends watch a couple of episodes and they agree that the story is very well done.

      Then I slowly caught up on The Patch, while I searched for the perfect Bioshock Infinte Elizabeth Bird or the Cage choker:

      JgoBS.jpg

      I think I've decided, but I'll post about that later....

      I finished the day by watching some Let's Play's that I missed: specifically crappy game show games that the AH guys made hilarious! smiley12.gif

      Yesterday was a great day in isolation.

      Go Internet! smiley0.gif

    • Even the Internet thinks I'm Asian

      5 years ago

      Madelynne

      Sooo...I don't know if this is just how the commercial is, (someone please help me clarify), but I just got a Clash of Clans Korea commercial on YouTube.

      All of the words were in Korean symbols and the announcer only spoke Korean.

      I laughed soooo hard when the ad ended and immediately came here to ask if this is normal or if the Internet thinks my Internet history puts me in the Asian demographic.

      Maybe I should lay off the Jpop for a while!

      Selfie with Arden Cho!

      She said I was the "tiniest, cutest body guard ever".

      I totally could have fought anyone who had ill will towards her!

      Luckily I only dealt with fans who wanted selfies of their own.

      And as I did with Eliot Chang:
      1469778_672692146087786_598867169_n.jpg

      I asked her to do the cute peace sign thing:

      What's funny is Arden told us that someone keeps trying to set up her and Eliot...

        Well I thought the take on Bioshock, Hunger Games, Parasite's, children and the whole philosophy behind it was a stroke of genius (honestly). and I enjoyed reading 'The Perils of the 8 Wheels' story.

        Shards are still there. But 5 charts are removed and just replaced with the actual shards

        Because Japanese is awesome lol I don't get to hear it much

      • Madelynne

        5 years ago

        what did they do in place of searching for the triforce shards?
        Why not Japanese?

      • sneedse

        5 years ago

        Japanese? Lol

        the look and feel from gamecube to HD. With the title being so cartoony I didn't think it'd be such a difference but I was way wrong. It looks amazing

      • Madelynne

        My little cousin that lives with me has the Wii u so I took advantage.
        if you play them back to back, the difference is significant. I loved it!

      • Madelynne

        Was it really that good?
        I never upgraded past gamecube, so no. My cousins failed at playing it though!

      I do love it though. : P(what is that arrow at the end of your post?)
