Rorroh's Blog

Just another WordPress.com weblog. Really. It is.

So Long — For Now May 1, 2012

Filed under: Blog Updates,Updates — Rorroh @ 10:30 pm

I originally posted this to my Twitter account but I figured it would be a good idea to put it here too. It’s adapted slightly for clarity but the majority of it is unchanged.

So, last night I realised that I try to do too many things. Did you know I used to run a blog [referring to this and a few others before it]? It’s a memory I cringe at. Not because of the subject matter but more because of how disorganised it was. It was messy since I didn’t really have a central theme to it. Actually, my Twitter account is a decent mirror of my blog. At least there it’s somewhat expected to be messy.

The blog also died a few times. Several times. All the time. I kept trying to revive it, thinking it would go over well if I tried just once more.

Reviving it was also an embarrassing attempt. “I’ll get it, and I’ll finally feel peace with it!” Nope. I’m not meant for a formal blog I guess, although this might be a good post for it. Ironic, huh?

So, bottom line: I’m going to start cycling out things that I just cannot do, even though I do have an interest in them. I’ll start by permanently retiring the blog. That will probably help give me peace at last.

I may one day bring up a new blog. If I do, it probably will not be a personal one. I think I’m just going to stick to Twitter for a while though.

If you want to keep up with me, you can do so via the following:
Twitter (Throw some @’s my way!)
Tumblr

Birthday! (and a website update)

Filed under: Updates,Website Updates — Rorroh @ 10:22 pm

Hey guys, the 28th of April was my birthday! Lots and lots of nothing was planned for that day, but it was fun anyway! I got a bagel for breakfast, had dinner with family at Chili’s and had delicious cake. My mood was awesome, too, so that made that day even better. What’s more, the mood is still lasting.

Also, the night before my birthday I decided to treat myself to a domain name. You know, because I’m so sweet. I now officially own and am located at Rorroh.net. This is something I’ve been waiting a long time for, so I’m pretty excited to finally have it.

All-in-all, pretty great birthday!

I’ve also got another update coming in a few minutes. On its surface, it’s not really a “good” one, but it’s for the best.

 

Tumblr July 30, 2011

What happens when I’m alone for a long time?  Monologues.  Monologues happen.  I made a mention in an earlier post (Well would you look at that?  I even used the word “monologues!”) that sometimes I have sudden inspirations to write, but due to a few different reasons they never make it out of my mind.  My first one was lucky enough to get out, and I have a feeling a few others might come out in time too.  This makes perfect use of my Tumblr!

My Tumblr monologues.

Edit 9/1/2011 4:34: A better word would be “soliloquy.” I updated the link to reflect that.

 

Quick Update – Favourites Search July 29, 2011

Two weeks ago I posted on Twitter that I was doing a Google Custom Search to put my bookmarks in, and then, as an afterthought, I decided and mentioned that I would post a link for those who were curious about it.  As far as I can tell, none of them contain porn (Probably).  It’s a bit bare and rather hard to find anything, but if you put in the right phrase then you may be able to get a hit or two.  I have just put in the first URL pattern, which should make it list most of the pages on the given site.  I’ll start changing some of the older URLs to patterns too as soon as I get some more time.

Here’s the link.  Have fun.

Here’s the site updates thus far.  All future updates will have their own post.


17/4/11

“This account was suspended for being Inactive.” I’m sorry, what? For being inactive for, what, five hours? Oh, I’m sorry for having a life, Byethost. Do you feel neglected? Like that school kid with cerebral palsy? Aw.


14/6/11

I’m just going to go ahead and say June 7th was the RGT’s officially start day. That was the day that I finally finished school and I can now devote more time to more pressing matters, like Minecraft. Or.. eh.. you know. RGT.


27/6/11

Had visitors all week, so I’m starting up again now. Heehee, and I’m starting college soon! Going to Full Sail University starting August 29th! I need to start putting these updates on my blog.

 

An Update

Filed under: Blog Updates,Updates,Website Updates — Rorroh @ 8:15 pm

I commonly have rather insightful internal monologues that would be perfect to place on this blog. Unfortunately, most of them are abandoned due to laziness while some of them simply come at inconvenient times. The others, however rare they are, are alas almost always lost once I get to writing them down. This is a super-rare occasion where I have overcome both laziness and lost ideas — I had a general idea as to what to write about and I am making it up on the spot. It seems to be working well. To keep any readers, if there are any at all, from getting high and dry, here’s some updates about my life, blog and some important things to me. Not necessarily in that order but bear with me.

I will be updating this blog with a few different things: Primarily site updates (probably will be the glue that stops this blog from falling to oblivion again); things of interest to me; things that I believe may be of interest to share; and on occasion, some coverage of new happenings. The blog will hopefully be either regularly updated or updated with very little downtime, but as per every such promise, I can’t promise I’ll hold my promise. Yes, that’s a paradox. You figure it out, because I can’t.

Now for a little about my life. I’ve finished high school by the skin of my teeth, and I’m really excited about it! I took a week of hardcore studying and I’m really glad I did. It’s possibly the only thing that helped me through. The funny thing is, I took all 12 years but I passed as a Junior. Go figure. There’s gotta be an achievement somewhere for that, right?

With my high school years gone, what would be better than to go right back in? I’m almost completely straying from what I used to want to go into, which was game developement or software programming, or something that relates to programming or computers. I honestly was never sure what exactly I wanted to get into. As of recently, I finally figured out exactly what I wanted to do and I’m rather embarrassed to say that it’s been in my life this whole time without my taking true notice of it: Art. It’s only fitting that I’m going to be majoring in either Game Art & Design at the Art Institute or Game Art at Full Sail University, depending on whether or not I get accepted into the Art Institute. Here’s hoping I do, as I’m wary of going to Full Sail. In fact, if I don’t get accepted I might settle for the community — I’m sorry, “state” now — college until I do. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an amazing school but it’s just not quite for me.

As I mentioned before, I’m going to be putting updates related to my site here. These updates will range from design updates and new features to sneak-peeks and beta/test applications. I will probably embed this blog in part or in whole into the site, too, but that’s another thing to put on my long list of things to do. I’ll put it near the top. I also suggest anyone interested in my site to watch this blog rather than watch the site, because the URL for my site will not be permanent and may change a few times before becoming so. I will keep the current URL somewhere on this blog, probably on the front page.

I think that covers everything for now. My next post will have the current site updates, then I’ll clean up the blog a bit. This should come either later tonight or sometime tomorrow — hopefully tonight.

Here’s to the rebirth of my blog, and to the start of renewed activity!
