Dakara Keep Trying~

Ok, It’s been a week since I last posted… Sorry about that, but its been for different reasons. I’ve been busy a lot with college and getting things together for it, but I’m here now, and I got all the time in the world pretty much to keep you updated.

College Update First: The college visit to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh went really well! I got a bit emotional while I was there but that is my own problem. I really enjoyed the school a lot. My admissions director was SUPER nice! She was awesome. She showed me around the school and I especially liked the Green room and the audio studio room that they had. Before we left she told me to think about it over the weekend and call her on Monday to see what I thought and If I was interested into applying. We settled on a Major of Visual Effects & Motion Graphics which was pretty cool. Its not really a programming major which is what I thought I really wanted, but Its fun and puts my creativity to the test. Its a really cool program that I believe will boost my career opportunities.

Well I did talk to her again and she got me started on the application process. I filled out the on-line application and did the essay… I sent it in and checked it off my list. The next thing I had to do was talk to my guidance councilor and set up a day to take my Placement test and get a copy of my transcript sent. I got the transcript sent but my guidance councilors (note: I don’t really have one specified to me) are too “busy” to care about us seniors, so I doubt I’ll be able to take my test at school.

I also had to call another Lady to get started on my Financial Aid… Today I just got my Student aid PIN thing so I can finish my FAFSA form and stuff as soon as my Dad gets all of his information.

I’m feeling very confident about this school because I really want to go, and the girl I met with on my College Visit said she would write me a letter of recommendation! Wooo!

JOB! 🙂 Yes thats a J, O and a B: I applied to Dairy Queen on Monday and today my friend Alyssa (who works there) said that she was asked about me. We figured that they would call me, but my mom took me there to get ice cream so I just hopped in and asked if all the spots have been filled yet or not. The really nice manager said that she was going to call me, but she wanted to set up an Interview for Tuesday at 3:30. YES 🙂 I’m so happy! Pray that I do really well in the interview so that I get the job!

Side Note: McDonald’s Southwestern salad is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Good! ^_^ (Sorry for the advertising haha)

Maplestoryyyy: Oh… darn I haven’t been on Maplestory very much this past week because I ran into a dull period. I’ll get on tonight and work my way to level 40… I need some things to keep me occupied while playing it… I need more japanese music 😛

Yeah, I’m level 36 and I haven’t posted any pictures… Sorry about that! 😦 I’m on the laptop so I don’t have any pictures to upload… Mehhhhh You’ll see some when I’m 40…

Japanese: One good point about the Art Institute is that I might be able to take Japanese classes at the University of Pittsburgh and they might even count towards my general education electives! 🙂

GTG for now…


College Visit Friday

Today I’m sitting at my Dad’s office waiting for him to get back from his daily meeting. I’m here because today I have a college visit to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, and I have to stay with him until it is time to go to the college. I’ve always enjoyed coming to his work and meeting his co-workers and seeing the building he works in every day. I always wanted to work in an office area and his is really nice. Although I would be content with just a small little Cubicle in the corner of the building! ^^;

I’m really nervous about the college visit. They girl I spoke with on the phone asked me to bring in some work that I’ve done in the past, but I wasn’t able to bring anything with me because of different complications. We are going to be looking into Video and Media Design or something close to that, because I enjoy video recording. This occupation though, is my second choice. What I really enjoy doing is Computer Programming. If I’m not accepted into UAT, then this would be the next best thing (Which reminds me, I need to send in the application for UAT!). Wish me good luck today with my college visit!

In Maplestory, I finaly made it to level 30! Thanks to my new 2x Experience card! I bought it yesturday and I get twice the amount of experience from 5pm to 9pm and All day Friday and Saturday (Not exactly the whole day, but pretty close to it.) When I’m back home and get a chance, I’ll upload some images and stuff for you.

I’m still nervous about the college visit!! 😦


What is wrong with you google? Swim to Europe?!

Google has amazed me again…

Ok, So If I wanted to go to Frankfurt Germany I would ask google how to get there. This is google’s response: GOOGLE MAPS Look at step 20

Swim to Europe

Swim across the Atlantic Ocean? Haha… This really made my day. My friend Katie found this out and it was hilarious! Yes I know that I can’t drive/walk to Europe, but swim? Haha. Google you amaze me every day… ^^;

More Japanese MS fun

Yesterday was a ton of fun… Lots of monsters… lots of friends… lots of Guild PQ! 🙂

MrLinny and KliCk KliCk and mini yeti

I finally made it to level 25… ^^; Heres what I look like now with my +10 DEX towel, Dex Bamboo hat… and my lvl 25 bow. I also added in the dog forehead item just for fun since I haven’t gotten a +4 DEX Pinocchio nose yet :/

KliCk lvl 25

lvl 25 bar


Anyways… My guild did a ton of Guild Party Quest runs… It was so much fun! I found a 60% overall scroll for DEX, which got traded for a steely… then I sold the steely. Later on in the day I found another scroll that was the same. I still have that one, yet I want to sell it soon. I have about 5 million meru now (thats Japanese meso) because I bought myself some fun stuff. And I also scrolled the towel I have to 10+ DEX so… yeah that cost a little.

Heres a picture of me being the noob for our PQs.

KliCk noob die


Thats about it… My break is over… It snowed several times during the Easter break, so I didn’t feel like doing anything. I went to church on Sunday, but other than that… I just sat home and stayed warm… and played Maple Story 😛

Level 24

Level 24

Just wanted to pop in and say Woo! I’m level 24…

That is all… O.o;

Not Luck and KliCk

WOOO! A new friend from my guild! ^^;


My friday was pretty good. I got to play jMS all day! I missed it so much. I’m level 22 now. I’m trying to get to 25 so I’ll have a change of pace. I’ll get to change cloths a bit and I might start training on crows.

One thing I would NEVER do in Japanese Maplestory: Spam in English -_-;


Thats a guild mate (Moose). He decided to use the last of his nexon points on a microphone. We probably wont get any more Nexon points till the MTS re opens.

Anyways… I thought this was really wierd:
CPP in Maple

 But yeah… I met this cool kid Kevin and we’ve been good friends so far. He is really nice and I hope he keeps playing jMS for a long time. 🙂

I was feeling lonely at the beginning of playing today, so I messaged Ray (Pokgai) and he let me join his guild. Its a really lively guild! I like it a lot. I was in ImoRenjazu last time I played, so I’m glad I’m back in his guild ^^;

Jms time… Maybe?

I’m back on playing jMS!!! 🙂 Hopefully. My dad got more RAM for the computer downstairs so I tried jMS again and it seems like its ok. No disconnects so far… That was the major problem before. I would disconnect every 2 minutes.

We’ll see what goes down.

Today I was playing and there was this girl that started to talk to me in Japanese. I REALLY wish I knew what she was saying… She AND I tried sooo hard to talk to eachother but it just failed miserable. I’m going to find someone that knows both Japanese and English and ask them to help me make amends with this girl.

And yeah… I forgot to get a screenshot so I would have future reference, but my electricity also shut off shortly after she left. Oh wells…

Edit: I think I got the girls name… It should be 春風月火 But for some reason the second Kanji doesn’t LOOK like how I remember seeing it. But that was the only kanji that I could find that was close. 😦 Mehhh Help?
