      Remember when me posting was a thing? Welp.

    • Sorry Guys

      5 years ago

      SirPenguinIV

      I've not been anywhere near as active on here as I probably should have, so I'm sorry for that. Personal shit has been going on, right now more than ever. It's good to get this off my chest I guess, so here I go;

      My girlfriend just broke up with me. This had been a whole affair for a while now, but the jist of it is that I was moving too fast for her, was ahead of her in the relationship, and she got scared. She felt like she couldn't talk to me, so she asked all her friends and this went on for the entire summer. I put the silence from her down to not being able to contact her while I was away, but when she went away on camp last week, I was told about it all. I got fucking destroyed in the ensuring shitstorm, felt awful about everything and it basically ended with everyone knowing about it all, me feeling shitty and terrible then me getting broken up with. Worst thing was that if I hadn't have known, she would've waited until after my birthday to do it because she didn't want to upset me. I really couldn't have dealt with that, so, in a way, that's a positive. I hope that things won't be too bad between us, because I feel really shitty anyway, and I don't want to lose friends, but I kinda know that I'm going to drift from some people because we were all quite tightly knit. In some ways, I don't know whether to be heartbroken or relieved that the ordeals over after this long week of mulling it over, but what's done is done, so I'll just drink my sorrows away fairly soon.

      In other news, my last year of Sixth Form approaches, and as I attempt to deal with my shitty AS Grades, I'll move onto A2, and hopefully improve.

      Basically, for me right now, life is fairly shit and empty and hopefully things turn up. I hope I'll get into talking with all of you more soon, and I may pop into TeamSpeak a bit more regularly. I think I just need to remind myself of the fact that I do have friends around.

      I love you guys,
      James

    • A Necessary Journal

      6 years ago

      SirPenguinIV

      I really feel like a Journal is necessary. I've been absolute poop at updating everybody recently, and SO much has happened.

      First things first: How is everybody? Well? Good.

      So, big event - towards the end of January, I started going out with a friend of mine (obviously now my girlfriend), Anastasia. All is well, everything is perfect.
      Next, I've been playing sooo much DotA 2. Too much. I'm part of a team and everything. And not only that, I've been watching pro-games (Go Na'Vi!) and absolutely love it. I love e-Sports, and have actually been considering writing something more extensive to do with my thoughts about e-Sports.
      Also, got my results for my January A-Level Modules - AABC (with two retakes and one possible remark). Fairly happy.

      So, what have I missed?

      (Also, my laptop charger broke, so the boredom from not being able to play DotA might just be what forced me to write this...)

      EDIT: Totally forgot to mention the other time-wasting growth in my life: Reddit. Fuck that site, why is it so addictive...

      No, sorry guys, I am still here! I've been here the entire time, I just seem to have neglected my duty of posting Journals and stuff, but now is as good a time as any to post one.

      I guess this is a sort of update and 2012 recollection Journal I guess, but I'll make it as 'not-shit' as possible, I guess.

      Well, update first. Been reaaaaally busy recently with everything school related. They weren't kidding when they were talking about the step up from GCSE to A-Level, and Physics has been taking a dump in my mouth all term. Still, despite failing my mocks, I scraped the marks necessary for no resits, which is nice. In terms of Christmas, I had a wonderful time, and hope you all did too. I got a great LOTR Bookset, which leads me into having seen the Hobbit 3 times already and an invite to see it again (who am I, @MrSir ?). I guess I'm looking forward to the New Year, but with January modules and exams, you could say I'm crapping myself a small amount.

      Also, in terms of games, before getting Borderlands 2 and Walking Dead on Steam for Christmas, which are wonderful games, I wanted to mention the fact that for the last 2 or 3 months, I've been playing a LOT of Dota 2 (150 Hours to be exact). Now, Dota 2 is in Beta still, but I have a buttload of keys I want to give away, so if you want one, just say.

      Now, the year as a whole. I'd say it was pretty good, for the most part. I made a lot of new friends, and have become significantly more social as the year went on, which again, is good. I did well in my GCSE's, and have got the stage in life where I no longer have to do art work compulsory (a negative of this is that I never do artwork anymore, which is something I aim to change in the coming year).

      In terms of goals for next year, honestly, I'd say I'd really like to do more art, write more and read more as basic priorities, whilst otherwise, would like to be more healthy, yada yada yada. Doing well in exams would be nice, but that requires revision, so how well that goes will depend on the effort I'm like to put in.

      Lastly, I've noted everyone on here has been on a real IT Crowd binge - being English, I've obviously seen it aleady, and to help you all catch up (if you're looking for a similarly hilarious British show) I would suggest watching Black Books - Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey being funny as shit.

      Anyway, Happy New Year to everyone, and (as lame as this is) have a wonderful 2013.

      James.

    • UPDATE

      6 years ago

      SirPenguinIV

      Well, I haven't posted a journal in forever! How about an update?

      College is going well, and apart from being hit with a buttload of work, I'm really enjoying it. I now have an actual challenge in the form of A-Levels, and have lessons I enjoy, so I guess it's definitely way better than GCSE's.

      On Saturday, I went to MCM in London, and, obviously, met Gavin, Geoff, Ben and Dan(ville). Despite being a line of at least a 2 and a half hour wait, it was definitely worth it - I finally got my Recollection DVD's! I really wanted an Achievement Hunter hoodie, but they included a discount code for the store with every purchase, so I guess that makes up for it!

      Other than that, there's not much to report. I've been playing a lot of Dota 2, a great game by Valve that has been in Beta recently, to which I was lucky enough to receive an invite. More recently though, they sent me a free key to give to another person, so I thought I'd raffle it off to someone - the best pun wins, I say (You all know my love for puns).

      Anyway, 'til the next time I can be arsed to write one of these,

    • The Train Wreck Podcast

      SirPenguinIV

      tumblr_m9ma33aTc41r38flso1_400.jpg

      The attentive ones among you all may have known that I run a podcast with some buddies on here called the Guinness and Tea Hour Podcast. Whilst amazing mediocre, we were not, in fact, on iTunes, and as such, did not encounter much success (50 Downloads at our most popular, and 49 of them were myself)

      In any case, the point is, in order to get on iTunes, and avoid any Copyright issues with Guinness, we have rebranded ourselves as The Train Wreck Podcast. After a mishmash of technical work, we have indeed got ourselves accepted by the good people over at iTunes, for your listening pleasure.

      It would mean the world to me if you would download it and give it a listen, so if you could, please do! You can find it on the Tumblr Site, by searching 'Train Wreck Podcast' on iTunes (it'll be under my name, James Colvin) or by using the direct iTunes link here.

      The first episode features myself, @Eoin , @ZoeEmiP and my friend Lana, a prevalent member of the RoosterTumblr community.

      In the first episode, we talk about Breaking Bad, Gaming News, RoosterTumblr, and a whole lot of Internet goodness!

      If you've read all of this, or even downloaded the podcast, you one, have my thanks, and two, are a thoroughly awesome person. THANK YOU!

      First off, @Shawnee might possibly be the most incredible person ever for buying me a Sponsorship! EVERYONE GIVE HER ALL THE LOVE SHE DESERVES, OK?

      Next, I have started Sixth Form, or college, and am so far enjoying it, despite the step up in difficulty, but the freedom and increase in challenge is a welcome addition.

      Also, this?

      tumblr_m9yail2FIQ1qhac71o1_500.jpg

      Wow, you guys are great, you have no idea how brilliant you all are. I can honestly say, being a part of this community has changed my life, and shaped me into a completely different person then I think I could have become, and I am so happy that it happened (well, I probably could have done without some of my nooby beginnings, but anyway, that's not the point).

      Again, thank you all, I love you!

        Yeah, it's been glitchy for awhile. We haven't had much of an update as to what's up, but Count said it was being worked on. I doubt it's high on the list of concerns, which is reasonable. And okay, just making sure, haha.

      • SirPenguinIV

        Yeah, I have actually noticed the time hasn't been going up recently. I guess that's why I've been added to Top 100? I don't know, I only know that I haven't actually been online that long!

    • Eoin Local Brigand.

      6 years ago

      Hey I'm still working at the mixing, but just a question. When I finish and have the file exported from the software, where will I upload it and will I message you and you can make a post on the podcast's page or is there anything I could do?

      • SirPenguinIV

        6 years ago

        Well, I think there are a bunch of free ones, but until we can actual sort it out, this'll have to do.

      • Eoin Local Brigand.

        6 years ago

        Oh I'm sorry, well if we can get something like that up, I mean if my dole money comes through I'd gladly put some of it towards hosting a site.

      • SirPenguinIV

        6 years ago

        Oh, I was talking about a hosting website, like how the Internet Box has their site - we still need to find a hosting site in order to get it on iTunes and stuff, but hey, whatever.

      • Eoin Local Brigand.

        6 years ago

        Cool cool cool, I'll use Mediafire to upload and I'll compress the file to about 25-50mb if not smaller, just to make it more accessible for people. Well maybe that's a good thing, I mean we can always pick a permanent host, I have no problem doing it if you'd like, but I thought you fit into that role seeing as you've been on every episode :L We could change out too, like every so often.

      • SirPenguinIV

        6 years ago

        Ah, right. Well, first off, I'll make you an admin of the group and you can post it there, and next, you can upload it anywhere - I think Theo has been using Mediafire, but wherever is fine as we're still in the ~ temperamental ~ stage of podcasting where we don't have a permanent host.

        Right, well I will be around, but I will also have a friend, who isn't necessarily interested in Red vs Blue, BUT he did go to last weekends MCM, so I could ask if he wouldn't mind talking for a little bit about that?
