Before we begin this week’s Deja Vuesday, I’d like to talk to you guys about something important.
After declaring a week or so ago that I was going on hiatus and then writing a bunch of sponsored posts, it might be safe to say that the hiatus is done. I don’t know for sure though as my online time is still limited, which makes scheduling posts (mainly video-based posts) very difficult. Also, I’m usually creatively drained come the beginning of the year so my posts tend to be sporadic and the quality varies.
I just want to say thanks to you guys for still sticking with me throughout all of this and I hope to be back to my regular posting schedule as soon as I can.
Now, without further ado, let’s begin this week’s Deja Vuesday! We’re gonna kick things off with a look back to five years ago when I first played Yu-Gi-Oh! Online:
Hey ya! I just changed the Whuzzupp theme to a much better Earthworm Jim 2 song and I updated the long-forgotten Linx section. I also want to congradulate Eric on his new laptop. Hopefully he’ll update more now.
Actually, Eriopolis recently built himself a killer new desktop! I haven’t seen it yet, but he says it’s got all kinds of awesome stuff in it like a quad-core processor and DDR3 RAM (I bet I’m gonna laugh at myself when I read this years from now)!
Well kids, I finally got my hands on the new Yu-Gi-Oh Online game and I gotta tell ya, it’s got potential. Imagine a Yu-Gi-Oh game that is never out of date; it has all the booster sets and promos, plus there’s a possibility that Upper Deck might release cards exclusive to Yu-Gi-Oh Online. You never know (wink, wink). However, there are drawbacks to the game. Actually, they’re more of double-edged swords than disadvantages. The game has a timer; you get 180 seconds to complete your turn and 30 seconds to decide whether or not to activate the effect of a card. If you run out of time for either situation, you automatically lose. This has actually helped me win a couple duels. On the whole (heh, heh), I like the timer because it eliminates the real scorge of the Yu-Gi-Oh game: the 1-hour turn-takers.
You know the type. The kind of people who just bought a Starter Deck and who can’t decide between wearing black or white socks. Or the kind who used to or still does play Magic or D&D or a similar game, and they’re used to taking forever to finish, and they take ages to finally Set a Monster and End their Turn. No offense to newbies, or the apperantly offensive term n00b, but sometimes you annoy me. Lucky for you, most of the time I’m willing to help you guys out. *sigh* Had to get that off my chest.
By the way, if any of you out there also have the game, my online name is “04smelsa”. We’ll duel sometime. Anyway, the online service is free until around April, but I don’t care. I’ll probably subscribe anyway.
It seems that Yu-Gi-Oh! Online is still going strong despite the franchise’s waning popularity. Although there have been times that I felt like dusting off my old Yu-Gi-Oh! deck, I think that my time as a duelist has long since past. Who knows, I might pick up the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! video game and get back into it all over again. Now, if only there was a Magic: The Gathering video game for the Nintendo DS too…
In other news, the effects of the tsunami still ring here in Ohio, in the form of consistantly BLAH weather. It’s either raining or cloudy. I feel like I’m in Seattle. Now, why do I feel the urge to play Nirvana…?
Anyway, I also added some cool pics in the About Me section. They’re some of my favorite characters. Well, I gotta go. Bye!

While it hasn’t been raining here lately, it has been snowing. A lot! I hate driving in the snow!!
Now let’s finish it off with a look back to three years ago when I came back to UU after being put on academic suspension:
Sup my peeps this be the Andy-San back here at UU!!! After a grueling period of not knowing if I can come back or not, I’m FINALLY BACK!!!! My mom said that my stepdad and I need some space so she said that I won’t be able to come back home til Spring Break. I’ll definatly have to do my laundry here til then so yeah. I’m so damn psyched to be back in UU again. My stepdad was right about one thing; I do need a job. I’ll look into getting a workstudy job with the IT department tomarrow along with finding out the status of my financial aid.
As you can tell, I was very excited & relieved to be back at UU after I had written back and forth to the admissions department. Unfortunately, as you all know, I was kicked out for good at the end of the semester due to me not giving a crap after finding out that I would need to pay off the previous semester before I could continue and that my financial aid wouldn’t cover it for me.
My life took some major twists and turns after that; some good and some bad. Earlier this month, I made a decision that would help me get back to college and even take me to Japan! I’m gonna record & upload a vlog this week that’ll explain it in more detail. Stay tuned for that!!
In other news, the DoD project fell through because we ran out of time and because I couldn’t play some measures. It also didn’t help that I was facing a possible suspension from UU at the time either. Don’t fear, the majority of the project is done and saved on E’s hard drive so I’ll supergank it so he doesn’t accidentely delete it (he has a bad habit of doing that). Perhaps we’ll have it done for the next free month. Sorry guys.
Well I’m gonna go celebrate my return with E and Dan so peace-out to all my homies and a big thanks to everyone who supported me during this very rough patch in my life.
Ah, the DoD project! Yeah, although I’ve tried many times to finally get it recorded with everybody, it seems to go south every time. I think that once I get better equipment, I’ll try to put out something for DoD. It’ll happen someday, I promise!!
Well gang, it’s been fun but I’m gonna get going. See you guys!!
