Last Week Sucked

Posted in Site News on October 28, 2008 by Eathanu

The following is something I wrote in reference to this comment. It was an assignment for English, and was supposed to contain as many parallel sentences as possible, hence it looking really crappy in terms of readability. So, pretty much it’s just like everything else on the site.

On Making Stupid Promises

Every week on Monday, on Tuesday, and on Thursday I try to post an article on my website, and almost every week I fail horribly. This week I so much as promised to post at least three times, and due to all of the other writing I have to do I can damned near guarantee that it won’t happen.

To keep up with this promise, I would have to squeeze out an article today, to posted this afternoon, and tomorrow, to be posted the following day. Why I would make such a stupid promise is beyond me, and why I would care so much about it is even further out of my grasp.

You live, you learn, well, you don’t learn, and I can already tell you now that I’ll make the same promise next week. Even last night I told myself I would get alllll my homework done (*snickers*) and yet here I sit in first period scratching this essay out in my downtime, and there I will sit in second period, doing my homework for third.

As a result of this, I am always working at inopportune times, and as a result of this, my material is always late, and as a result of this, my publishers are going to hate me. Perfect.

Whar be the articles?

Okay, so here’s the deal: High school senior year AP physics and otherwise full schedule. Needless to say, updates will be a little more sparse. Now couple this with a total lack of ideas what to write. Now threesome it with the fact that I want to start writing Black Skies soon and see if I can’t get it published before even finishing college (thus, y’know, maybe even paying for some of it instead of student loans up the ass). Finally, foursome it with my desire to play through Final Fantasy IX, something that just feels right to do about now. That’s, uh, one of those complicated things.

That said, I think I have a viable plan. Weekends are still free, as far as I know. I mean, there’s shit to do, but I have essentially unlimited time at night, as long as I don’t care about waking up at four. PM. So, I will try to write out about three or four articles per weekend, probably all on Sunday night, defeating the purpose, and then post them during the week, trying to space them out a bit or something.

So how does this affect you, the reader? Well, it doesn’t, and you just read two hundred something words about something that doesn’t really affect you at all. At least, that is my hope. I’ll try to post something Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday like I was during the summer.

I’m thinking this week I’ll start up a new section and try to knock out at least one of those race articles, probably humans.

Today’s Update

Posted in Site News on July 16, 2008 by Eathanu

This is actually edited from a chatlog saved earlier today from Ragnarok Online.

[ To Cheapo ] : No update today.
[ To Cheapo ] : Last night I was going to set up a cop-out update that would link to an article on 20 sided.
[ To Cheapo ] : Had like a fake joke that was something like “what do you get when you combine _____ and _____” with a completely logical answer.
[ To Cheapo ] : One of those things where the joke isn’t funny at all, but the irony of it is
[ To Cheapo ] : and I couldn’t freaking remember it
[ To Cheapo ] : So in the time it would take to write a well-thought article on a person, race, or event on the subject the site is supposedly about
[ To Cheapo ] : I wound up sitting there staring at my computer screen trying to remember a joke that wasn’t funny for an update that had nothing to do with my site
[ Friend Cheapo ] : cute
[ To Cheapo ] : That, um. Might be put up tonight

So yes. That’s why there’s no update today.
