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

An Update July 13, 2011

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!
