For those that could be confused, this is how Kira sees when she's blind. Well, blind in our way of thinking. She can still see, kind of.
This is how we would see the hallway.
That's how Kira sees the hallway. Minus a few minor details that I was too lazy to edit out.

I can't say that. Well, I could, but I don't want to. P.S., filing taxes sucks.
www.brickarms.com and www.bricklink.com, and then go to www.walmart.com and buy an epicamera, and a epitripod. :3
Hmm. StarScream. I'd enslave and brainwash him and then make me fly off the island.
Writing. To make believable characters and be able to convey emotions extremely well.
Posted by X2 at 7:37 PM
....does gaming count? :D
A movie. Preferably sci-fi, with horror and suspense... and an epic space battle. :D
Really hot. At least it's easier to type then.
A desk. With an Alienware XPS desktop and a writing career.

I got a Tarantula, I have a twitter now, http://twitter.com/KyreniusX2 - I'm 18, a legal adult, I can vote now, I grew a bit, my left eye needs a better prescription, met two awesome people on JulNoWriMo chat that I follow on Twitter, I met more awesome Star Wars Roleplayers on Twitter, and I finished JulNoWriMo.
that's only one paragraph. Oh well...

I'm getting bored of it. No map packs or new guns or more modes will change how I feel. I've noticed that when I play, it just... it gets old really fast, and I feel like I'm being charged with negative energy. I get snappish and angry after I've lost a game, and when I'm on the winning team... it doesn't seem to matter. It's an uncomfortable feeling for me.
Being homeschooled has left me with one thing others don't have as much of: free time. With Combat Arms, 2 years ago, I figured out a way to fill that time. But now it just doesn't seem like a worthy "filler" anymore. And it hasn't been expanding my talents or improving myself or helping me fulfill God's role in life for me. Plus, I counted how much NX (Nexon's real-money in-game currency) that I've spent and it totals up to over $170.
One-hundred and seventy dollars. Do you know what I could GET with that right now if I'd saved the money instead!?
One thing for sure: I can't get the money or the time I've spent on the game back. I may leave it installed on my Mom's laptop, but I am not going to spend anywhere near as much time on it as I had done before.

A few days ago (Monday) I got a Samsung Intensity. I have to say that so far I LOVE it. I really hated my old phone, which was a brick. >:E
There are already 5 pictures from the phone on my Facebook.

...and I'm re-reading Tattered Flesh again. Not as an edit-run, but just to read it. It's really interesting, going back and reading when I'm pumped and in my "prime" mode. I write a lot better when I'm planning on writing than when I'm not in my opinion.
Reading it, I know it needs a lot of work, but I'm also starting to try and appreciate the unaltered version, with all of the grammar typos and all of the inconsistencies. It makes me want to know what the final version will be like vs. the one I wrote last November.
I may post an excerpt at some point. I'm not sure. Either that or I'll host it under a creative commons license.

I was on a roll with editing only a week ago. Or maybe a bit longer. Anyway, I'm losing my steam. I can only edit a few lines at a time before growing so bored and distracted that I save and exit OOo. It's annoying and frustrating, and even more so when I know exactly what I want to go and what I want to do. It's just conjuring up the will to do it.
Hopefully I'll have a bit more success this week.

It doesn't give me anywhere near as much time as waking up at 5 does, but it also doesn't leave me so groggy that it feels like my brain is trying to swim through Jell-o. Not only that, but--and I didn't realize it until now--I get massive headache's when I wake up at 5. They only last until I eat, or until I go out and get into the car, but they hurt pretty bad, and I didn't get one this morning. I'm happy about that, and I'll probably keep waking up at 5:30.
As for the writing front of my life... heh. I haven't written much for the past two days. Yesterday I was so bored that I watched Arachnophobia on YouTube. (Yes, the entire movie, from beginning credits to ending credits, is on YouTube. No, the graphics AREN'T that good, since it was made 20 years ago.)
It brought back a lot of memories of why I love spiders. The way they move, the way the jumping spiders pounce... the way some kinds of spiders seem to analyze their target and match its movements. :D
Anyway, I'll see if I can get some more writing done today, after Seminary. I should be able to, but we'll see.
Good morning, people. Have a good day!

I'm having epiphanies of a spiritual nature in large quantities today for some reason. I think I'm finally realizing really WHY I need God in my life. I keep getting this feeling that I need to read the Bible all the way through. I want to do it in a two-day challenge though. Just read, read, read, READ and write down all my thoughts. Then after that I'll read it in a week, taking a few hours out of my rather boring life and reading the scriptures. I'm also going to start praying in the mornings. I used to be good at doing it at night, but I've started to fall out of that.
That's all for now, except that I can't find the wipes and Kirstin (baby sister) has a really smelly diaper.

I've been really trying to keep editing on a regular basis, but today's been especially hard for some reason. I can't quite seem to tear myself away from blankly staring at the screen long enough for me to click on OpenOffice.org. I think one reason may be that I'm a little scared at where I'm heading with the plot. I keep bridging large parts together with barely any connecting scenes.
This wouldn't really be all that much different than the last few days, except that I can't connect with Alyx. Usually I feel almost exactly what the character is going through, but right now I just can't connect with her on any level. It's hard enough to write a single line, let alone anything longer than a paragraph.
Hopefully I'll start writing again in a few minutes. Let's see what happens.
Saturday, April 17, 2010
Stupid thing posted it twice before I'd even started typing anything. Fail for you, Blogger.
Before the writing stuff though, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH!!! My brother is 16 now, and is at the freaking Senior Prom right now. I kinda expected that, being the older brother, I'd get to go first, but I'm happy that he gets to go. His date is nice, but before yesterday, they hadn't ever met. Long story.
Anyway, I've been editing my first book/novel thing for a few days now, and the memories it's brining from what I was feeling two years ago is rather freaky. There are a few scenes that I DO NOT remember writing, or even thinking of writing, and there are others that have stayed in my mind.
Other parts I only partly remember, and some others are only faintly remembered.
One thing I didn't really expect to see a lot was how much progress I've made as a writer since then. I didn't really notice it until I read pages 5-45 of Invasi|ion. It isn't as hard to convey emotions, it's easier for me to explain things with deeper meaning and less words, and I can connect with the characters a lot easier.
Another thing would be the plot. I honestly didn't think it was THAT messed up... until I re-read it after almost six to nine months without opening the file.
Wow. It was all over the place. It was so completely random that I couldn't even find the plot arc that I'd placed in it in NaNo '08. I couldn't really feel what the characters felt, I couldn't relate, I couldn't connect with them on the level that I wanted my readers to be able to do. Now, I think I can at least get a few steps closer to the book that I want it to be. The kind of book that doesn't just stay on the shelf after a single read-through, or the kind of book that is interesting for the first twenty pages and then is such a bore that they forget about it.
I want to be able to write the kind of book that will capture the audience. I want to be able to write something that will make people stay up and lose sleep and read what the characters have gone through. I hope I'm getting closer to that goal.
For the actual plot, I haven't made that much progress. Mostly I've been re-writing things that didn't make sense. I'm only 50 pages in, but already I've made a lot of progress making the beginning of the book look like something you'd find in a book, not something you'd find on a bunch of scrap paper in someones attic.
That was all a bit ramble-y. Oh well. Have a good night, folks. :)

Our fridge sprung a leak yesterday, while I was at a live-action roleplay game. The fridge is fed water by a small tube that runs underneath the floor, and somehow it got a little slit. Now it's leaking down under the floor, to the side of the house and along the paint, reaching a hole and dripping right into the computer room. Good thing we have tile instead of carpet in there. -_-
I'll probably take a picture after church.
Yesterday we got Sims 3 and have been playing it on my Mom's laptop. I made Kyle and Maegan from Invasi|ion on Sims and their personalities are exactly the same in the book, except Maegan has an odd cleaning tendency. I'll post screenshots of them as soon as I get the laptop back.
Oh, the other thing that bugs me is that I can't really cement what Maegan looks like in my head. I know what her body type is, and what color hair, and her hairstyle, and her eye color, but her face keeps fading and slipping. I guess I'll just have to re-read Invasi|ion and see if I can remember.

Last night we had a party in my Grandma's basement. It included Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring Extended Edition and a projector, and a subwoofer and a lot of speakers. It was AWESOME!! It was also the first time I saw any part of Two Towers extended. The part after Helms Deep where Gimli and Legolas are arguing over who has more kills was hilarious.
I thought it was interesting how Gandalf made Aragorn look to the east on the fifth day. I can't remember why though... maybe it'll come back to me later.
And for those friends of mine that live near me, we're planning another LoTR party with anyone who wants to come watch with us. It'll be awesome.

Haven't done a lot today. I slept in until 10 today, which was a really big surprise. I usually get up at 5, so sleeping in was kind of nice... except that I missed Seminary, which I love going to. -_-
Aside from that, nothing eventful happened. I left my clan on Combat Arms because no one was ever on. No point being in a clan except to socialize and play with each other, neither of which was common. I'm considering making my own clan, but I'm not quite sure why I want to join another one.
And a random chat:
Ḁñđŕě: I'm making a new duck tape wallet.
I got new tape today. Digital Camo!
Can I order one from you on a discount? xD
regular price is $85
you can haz...
for limited time offer...
That was random. It's my blog, I don't care. :D
Tuesday, April 6, 2010
Yeah, I've finally started writing again. It's The Fall of Hope, which can be read here: https://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AfxXK_5J-Q44ZGNtOWNtcnpfNWY1cnQ5Z2Y5&hl=en
I haven't been up to much else. I made another account on Combat Arms called xScoped_ , so if you play it and see him on the Charlie server, I DON'T HACK. Just because my KDR is 2.02 doesn't mean I hack. :P
Aside from that, I haven't really done anything. :)
Friday, March 26, 2010
Yeah, I'm still here. I've been really busy with a lot of things. Mostly been doing a lot of Driver's Ed and stuff. About time I get my license. I'll post more tomorrow, when I've got a bit more sanity about me. :)

First of all, I've really started to kick it off with LIFES again. I've written over 10k so far, I think, more than what I wrote all together for tFoH, which I should start writing soon after I finish LIFES.
Saturday, January 30, 2010
Yeah, there was a previous acquaintance of mine on Facebook that posted something dumb on his wall. I did it and was more than halfway through the requirements when he commented that I'd done it wrong. IT MORE THAN MADE ME ANGRY and I'm not entirely sure why. I guess COUNTING TO A FREAKING THOUSAND AND THEN BEING CUT OFF AT 534 KINDA MAKES ME ANGRY.
Bright side: At least it wasn't 999. -_-

There were these four kids going through these ancient ruins. The ground was a kind of dark tan tile and the ruins were spaced several hundred feet apart, holding up a vast ceiling of granite. They split up into two groups and walked off. A small girl and I went off to the right.
Been keeping my journal for the past 11 days. It's interesting how much can happen between now and then.
Tuesday, January 12, 2010
Today, one year ago, I met Kendra. So far we've gotten to know each other extremely well, and she and I think of each other as more siblings than long-distance friends.
Monday, January 11, 2010
Yesterday I took up a challenge. Kendrabelle challenged me to write in my journal every day for a year. Not only did I find and download a program to do it, but the program is extremely easy to use. I love it.
Saturday, January 9, 2010
Yesterday at dance, they all sat down and talked and watched their performance... so I was bored. I opened my netbook and opened "Tattered flesh working.odt" and started reading. So far all I've done is a few small line edits and one big scene adaptation, but I'm really focusing on the big picture and marking the things that don't make sense or are contradictions.

Today I was called into my job (I'm a tax filer) and was basically told that my handwriting was too poor to do the job. I didn't think about it that much until my Mom reminded me that there's a way to DIGITALLY SCAN IN AND PRINT ENVELOPES. I'm kinda pissed off at that, and I really just don't want to work there. I HATE filing things. I'd honestly rather stack shelves at Target than sit there and slide on my knees all day, reaching for taxes and finding names of people that I've never met.

My little 4 year-old brother, Jaxon, has an interesting way of speaking.
Jaxon: Store? Jurdin are we [mumble] STORE!?
Me: Jaxon, it's time to go to bed.

Posted by Kyle Hendricks at 8:05 AM
Reminiscing over the awesomeness and fails of last year. The first on my list would have to be meeting Kendra, since that also happened really early in '09. So far she's been an awesome friend and I've been encouraging her (lol) to write, and she's done the same to me. :D
Secondly would be meeting Stina. I think I met her just a few days after I met Kendra. :D
Third would be getting a netbook for my birthday. This thing has been the most useful device for me. Although the version of XP that I had seemed to have “I'm a Netbook running XP with no anti-virus, come after me!” written along it in every language (including LOLcat), so I installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix.
Fourth, I'd have to say was celebrating the anniversary of BREAKING MY ARM. THAT was FAIL, especially since there was a soccer goal post about a hundred feet away on that day, TAUNTING ME.
And Kirstin turned 1. She's so cute! :D
Another would be making this blog. I don't care if I did it in '08 or w/e, I LOVE WRITING IN IT and I KNOW I DON'T DO IT ENOUGH!
I'll think of more later I have got to go to bed. I feel really sick right now. :l
