Vlog 35 – MEPS Weigh-In Results & The Surprise Is Revealed

If you can’t see the video above, click here.

Hey gang, It’s TheAndySan back here from MEPS!

If you’re wondering why there’s no sound in this video, it’s because my camera didn’t record it for some odd reason. I tested it again tonight and it recorded just fine so it must have been just a freak thing I guess.

I’m proud to announce that I PASSED my weigh-in at MEPS!! I still have to diet and exercise to keep my weigh down, but I don’t have to be quite as strict about it. Needless to say, I’m really excited!!

I do have some bad news though. I wasn’t able to get my rating (job) or be sworn in because they didn’t have any ratings for men that day (just women). I’m going back to MEPS for the 3rd time at the end of the month in hopes that I’ll get my IT rating. If it’s not available, I wouldn’t mind doing something else in the Cryptology department,

As I had promised in my previous vlog, I has a surprise for you guys! I got my Federal tax return back and decided to spoil myself a little bit, so I bought a used copy of Pokemon Diamond for about $20 at GameStop. I know, I know; I’m too old to play these kiddie games, but I love the original RPG-style Pokemon games very much! In fact, it was through the Pokemon comics in Nintendo Power that I began to watch Pokemon on TV and thus anime. Even though I watched My Neighbor Totaro and Samurai Pizza Cats long before Pokemon, it was Pokemon along with DragonBall-Z that originally got me interested in anime.

Anyway, I’d also like to ask you guys for some ideas for future videos. I have a couple in mind, but I want to hear from you, my audience, first. Please feel free to leave me your suggestions in the comments below!

If it’s an idea for an anime review, please try to make it a 13-26 episode series instead of a long epic like Naruto or One Piece. It’s not that I hate long-running anime (I love Bleach and I’m getting back into One Piece), it’s just that it would take me forever to do a review for them, and even if I did manage to do it, it would be too generic as the great seasons (or sagas, whatever you call them) would be weighed down by the crappy ones. For now, I’d also like to stick with something from within the past five years to draw in more viewers. OVAs are perfectly acceptable too! I’m also bouncing around an idea in my head for a collab video with my best bud Eriopolis, so keep your eyes peeled for that too!

Well kids, that’s all the time I have for today. I won’t be able to get online at all next week so I’ll see you guys sometime the following week, probably before I go back to MEPS. Until then, I’ll be playing Pokemon Diamond and watching some newly-downloaded anime. See ya next time!!


P.S: If you didn’t hear any background music, it’s because I had to remove it. If I did, I apologize.
