    I'm Basically Done

    I hate to say it, but I've moved on from fan fiction, and really the whole brony community as a whole. As with all things, you just get bored of it eventually, and I think that times has come for me. Who knows, maybe I'll have time for this stuff later in life, but I think it's time to say goodbye. I've been spending a lot of time working on music and stuff; my band is playing at the Burlington

    Because we don't already have skype for that.

    A Temporary Loss In Interest, And In Time

    So I haven't been on here very much in the last two weeks. I've been keeping busy with things, schools things, and adjusting to taking more hours at my job. I'm also not feeling particularly inspired in terms of ponyfic, but I do have some ideas I want to write before I call writing quits (which will probably happen within the next year, honestly. Though I'll probably still pop in here as long as

    Now I don't have to vote for somebody I hate in my first ever year of eligibility.

    Testing Testing 1, 2, 3

    So today, after spending all day studying for my upcoming AP exam, working 8 hours at my new* job, and then doing more of the same, I decided to unwind and try and catch up on season 4, which I admittedly never finished. And what do I get when unwinding? An episode about fracking tests for Baltar's sake. It's like mlp is trying to tell me to study instead of wasting time watching cartoons. Joke's

Ode to a Brick · 5:41pm Apr 20th, 2015

I wrote this in my writing class. Enjoy.

Ode to a Brick


The mouse is slow and yet
My CAT can’t track it down.
The RAM sits frozen in
Some cooling fluid, drowns.
How much did I pay for this cheap steel hunk?

The bus is parked at last,
The driver still won’t go.
It sits in stark contrast
To my temper, which grows.
I must have been scammed, this thing’s pure junk.

The bugs got in the house.
They broke what I installed.
This screen can’t keep them out,
Nor can the firewall.
In terms of performance, it clearly flunked.

I’ve kicked it with my shoe
And cursed it all the while,
And yet it still won’t boot,
Can’t open up a file.
What else can I say? My laptop’s a clunk.

I gather you're a bit upset at your computer

I've already got its replacement lined up. Just got to save up the money.

3002468 well, hopefully this new one doesn't bitch out on you

3002471
I hope it won't. But to be fair to the one I have now, it wasn't always so bad. Hell, I had this laptop back when I was writing on ponyfictionarchive and didn't even know what FIMFiction was. Four years can do a lot to a laptop, and this one hasn't aged well.

3002475 such a shame
I've had my old PC for almost four years now itself

My parents kept one of their PCs for more than six years. They got a new one five or six years ago, but if I remember correctly, it was still running Windows XP at the time. So now I actually feel nostalgia when I look at this thing:

3002502 oh god, right in the feels
that might just be a heart attack though

Hopefully. Heart attacks aren't that bad, but there's no telling how long it will take for your feels to recover.
