SplendourOfColour's Random ramblings in a webologna journal thingy
The random ramblings of an intrigued, inquiring mind of a starving fine artist. Blogs, journals, thoughts, feelings, opinions, poems, stories, and possibly even some artwork; just might be posted in this corner of the wonderful world of gaia.
End of a two month silence with another almost deleted entry
Good morning, good evening, and good afternoon, wherever you may be. Hello again, readers! As always, thank you for reading!

It seems to have been a while since I have last written an entry in here and posted it.

Hmm, lets see...what have I been up to? Well, a couple of weeks ago, I got either the flu or a really bad cold that refused to heal. I finally got better, but I still get random coughing spells. I hate being sick, I feel so useless when I am. Resting always seems to be a difficult task for me. Especially when I am lying next to my phone and Nintendo DS, wanting to do activities instead. Hmm, perhaps charging these devices near my bed wasn't the best idea afterall.

Oh, I finally got to go to gamestop. I love going to video game stores. It really had been a long time since I had been to gamestop though. I think that the last time I went was when I bought Pokémon SoulSilver.
That was for my original half-broken DS, that I got in already used condition, from someone I used to be friends with. Anyway, after all these years, my original DS started to physically break, and was only being held together by my (albeit a little desperate,) scotch tape attempt at trying to keep it alive.

However, when I went to gamestop, I was able to buy a replacement for my broken DS.
Sadly, the Nintendo 3DS or 2DS and the Nintendo Switch, are still way out of my price range. Perhaps if I save up for a few years I may one day get to own and play on those devices. Although, that may be a long time from now, since the rent, utilities, and bills don't really leave much of anything to save. Oh well, at least I can still daydream about it. Especially, about Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. That game looks so awesome and fun. I really want to play it.

Anyways, I bought a used Nintendo DS Lite. Now I can finally play all of my DS and Gameboy Advance Games again. Although, I am still torn about the demonic aspects of pokémon games. The pokémon Ghastly totally creeps me out.

Oops, am I supposed to say that I am not sponsored by Nintendo? Yeah, I am not sponsored by anyone. I still wonder if it is ok to actually mention brand names in my webologna thingamajiggy. I hope so. I don't want to offend someone or violate a copyright or trademark law by doing so.

Hmm, lets see, where was I. Ah, well, I have been drawing more lately. And I finally was able to fix my phone's gallery to show me my pictures again. Now I can finally see what the pictures I have been taking actually look like.

I also have started reading: "The Case For Christ." So far it seems to be an excellent book that answers difficult questions about Jesus. I personally think that this book is a good read for not only Christians but also for athiests, agnostics, and people who believe in other religions altogether. I love the fact that it was written by a man who started out as a skeptical atheist that asked hard hitting questions, and eventually became a christian. Although, I will admit that I am only on the first chapter so far.

Hmm, so that is what I was up to before last week or so. This last week though, was the Las Vegas Massacre.
Despite not having anyone that I knew personally get injured or killed, I have been very upset about what happened. I have been vacillating between crying for the victims and being angry at both the killer, as well as the circumstances that allowed him to do what he did.

I had written an entry containing my thoughts, opinions, and some of my raw emotions a few days ago, but chose not to post it. I thought that what I was saying was not a good idea to post online. However, after having enough time to think about what it was that I wanted to say, I shall put a smaller portion with a more revised version of my thoughts.

Considering that the killer had undiagnosed mental illness; I think that not only does this country need to improve gun control, particularly when it comes to semi-automatic rifles, but also mental health care. The issue of gun control is important, however, I personally feel that mental health is also extremely important.

There are areas in which mental health care, as well as how emergency personel and communities respond to people with mental illness, that could definitely be improved. I have several ideas on some ways that might help improve mental health, but I don't feel comfortable posting them here.

At this point, the one thing that I am certain about, is that I, as well as other fellow believers in Jesus, need to pray for all of the victims of the massacre and their families. I think it would also be good to pray for all the areas and people that have been, and still are, affected by the hurricanes.

Well, this seems to have become a rather somber moment.

Perhaps I shall lighten it by talking about the guy I like. I got to see him after a long time. After all this time of not seeing him or being able to talk to him, I am very happy and appreciative of just being in the friend zone for now. I don't know if it would ever become anything more than that. Right now I am content with things staying as they are. Although, I can't help but wonder if he noticed that my hands were slightly trembling with my nervousness.

Lately, I have become more shy and withdrawn when it comes to talking to guys. I am still friendly, just not quite as willing to trust as I used to be. I am not going to say what caused me to become this way, only that it wasn't the guy that I like, that caused it. At this point though, I really only want friendship and nothing more from anyone. I have to take some time to have God heal me from within, so that I can begin to trust once more. Then after that I will perhaps be able to daydream once more about things like dating and being swept away by prince charming. Although, I will admit that my love life is in God's hands. Actually, my whole life is in God's hands.

Hmm, on the thought of prince charming... I always did love fairy tales. Even now, I still do. I even like to write them sometimes too.

Oh, that reminds me, I finally watched all four volumes of RWBY. The reason that I stopped before was because...wait is this a volume one spoiler?
::sigh:: I still don't know how to put something in a spoiler button. I really should learn.

Anyways, possible RWBY spoilers alert. I will try to be vague but I give no guarantee that I will suceed in avoiding spoilers.

The reason why I couldn't get past the last few episodes of volume 1 of RWBY, was because the bullying was difficult to watch. At the time that I was trying to watch it, the bullying part hit too close to home. Possibly because a few years ago, I had a few bullies of my own.

Anyway, (wait is it anyway or anyways? I just realized that I have been using both...oops)
Well, after being older and not in the same situations as before, I was not only able to watch volume 1, but also Volumes 2,3, & 4.
However, the main villain creeps me out. I am also not keen on the gods and witchcraft aspects of the show. It works for the series as well as some of the characters, but sometimes it really bothers me. Also, the last grimm that was fought against was what I consider extremely demonic. So I don't know if I will be able to continue watching and/or be able to enjoy volume 5, if the grimm continue to be more and more demonic. I really don't want nightmares of the grimm from RWBY. I have so many other nightmares already. But I digress.

I have so many favorite characters. I took a quiz on a different website that said I am most like Ruby and Blake. I suppose I can agree with that. Although, Velvet wasn't in the quiz answer possibilities, so I dunno if I would have gotten Velvet as well. As far as favorite characters go, I like Qrow and Velvet, as well as all the characters in team RWBY and team JNPR. Although, I like so many characters now, that at this point the smaller list would be characters that I don't like. I think my favorite character from team RWBY is Blake though. Oh, and I love Zwei...he is so cute!

I also love the faunus aspect of the show. Partly because I love watching, as well as drawing and creating, characters with animal ears and tails. I have been this way ever since I saw Luna and Artemis transform into humans in Sailor Moon, as well as around that same time, when I saw Inuyasha for the first time. Anyway, I think it is awesome that RWBY has characters like that. I think it is interesting and well done, how the faunus have certain struggles that they are trying to overcome in the series.

I also really enjoy the music and different songs in RWBY. I love how the characters have their own songs too.

Ok, possible spoilers section over.

Anyways, right now I am watching volume 1 of RWBY Chibi. I love how much RWBY Chibi makes me laugh. The characters are so cute in chibi form. I can't wait to watch more episodes.

Hmm, it seems that I have written quite a bit. Oh well. Oh, I almost forgot to mention...I decided to enable the comments section for this webologna thingamajiggy. If all goes well with this, I just might leave the comments section enabled. Not sure yet though, so this shall be a trial run. Although, I will probably disable this feature when I get my new phone and switch to the different device. It might only be disabled temporarily though. Hmm, I am Not sure when that will be though, so for now the comments section is enabled. So feel free to comment, I guess. Please be respectful though. I don't really want any inappropriate comments. Not that I really think any of my readers would do so. I just want to be cautious.

Alright, I think I shall stop here for now. I am off to go eat some yummy homemade french toast, thanks to my Mom.

If anyone has read all of this writing, you have my appreciation and kudos!

If I have offended anyone or triggered anyone, I am very sorry.

Thank you for reading!
I hope that I have been more of a blessing and less of a burden.

Finally, I hope you have a Blessed day!
