-Just a rant that is purely my opinion I need to get out.




So, with YouTube getting a layout change for the MILLIONTH time, I've about had it with YouTube. I understand that they need keep on changing over the time to keep up with the other popular sites, but could they just tone it down a bit? It's just that I feel that they keep on changing it ever so often, that it makes it hard to get used to it before they have another change. Plus, I feel that ever since the change to the layout that occurred last November,YouTube is just taking out or complicating some of the features that I enjoyed or that I was liking (even if they were only tiny things). Examples of this would include the messaging system being harder to get messages through, taking out the Friends List, and the comments now being at the bottom of the page as opposed to the side. As for the new YouTube layout, the three gripes I'm having about this is that they took out the ability to change your background on your channel, not being able to go to your channel when you click on your user name on the right hand corner, and also the feed being filled up with YouTube videos that were just a result of me trying to find a certain user and not being related to by the type of videos that relate to kind of videos that the user uploads or even what the videos are about. Just the username
It's changed so much since I started going on in the summer of 2006. Back then, there were NO commercials, the comments were on the side of the video so that you could actually watch the video while looking at the comments, and other stuff along those lines. Overall, it was a simpler time.

Just wish YouTube would make changes to the site that would be beneficial and not make the site get harder to navigate.

For the last almost 3 months, my whole world has been turned upside down. Back in the end of July, from doing too much shiny hunting on my games with too little breaks, I developed what is probably is tendinitis in BOTH wrists. Because of this, I can't play video games without getting hurt . But that's not the only I can't do because of this acursed thing. I can't write for long periods of time, can't draw for long periods of time, and can't type for long periods of time (Trust me, I'm even hurting in the right wrist from typing this right now). Me and my mom have (possibly) tried nearly everything to get it better, but I feel nothing has even worked. Got splints for both hands, got acupuncture thrice, I'm taking Tylenol, wearing those splints while I sleep, putting pain relief cream on, taking B6's and other pills for joint pain, went to a doctor, went to a Rheumatologist, and done hot-cold treatments for my wrists. The Rheumatologist perscribed me to these anti-inflammatory pills that were supposed to start to give me relief after 2 weeks of taking,  but the two weeks was on Saturday and I don't feel any relief. I might be rushing it a bit, but I feel it should start to go away. I sometimes wonder if it will ever go away. I hope it's gone by the end of the year. =(

Well people, today marks the 1 year anniversary of when I first made this account. I've had a good time here and being able to show my artwork to the world. Sure, it's not the best artwork in the world, but I've been trying real hard to improve. I at least feel like my art's improved over the past year. Also, sorry if I haven't been posting pictures as often, I am trying to keep on top of my schoolwork and not get to the point where it also stresses me out.  Now that I think about it, Shido's been my Pokesona for about a year now, too. I don't exactly when I made her, but I know I made her sometime last April. Like my artwork, she's changed over the past year, appearance-wise.

I rarely write in My journal, but I feel like just letting out my feelings through writing. Today at lunch since me and friends were all palying Pokemon White (My friends had the English Versions, I don't have the English version yet, so I was playing my Japanese Version of the game) And I just started going on about Pokemon with my friends and it I guess, started to annoy one of friends. He then told me to "Shut Up". Since I can have my feelings hurt easily, and I'm a soft person, I seemed to take it really hardly. I then became silent and walked away from my friends, and rarely spoke for the rest of the school day. *sigh*  I guess I could be a chatterbox who doesn't know when to stop. I guess I got all chattery because it seems to be a rare period of time when my friends get into what my passion is: Pokemon, and I know this period of time will go away, and probably won't come back till the next "big" Pokemon game comes to America; probably next year. I now feel like if I had an ability, it would have to be a new one in Black and White called, "Defeatist". It is an ability that Archen and Archeops only can have. The ability works like this: after the user who has this ability's HP gets below half of it's maximum HP, the user who has this ability's Attack and Special Attack get halved. I don't know why I feel like this ability, maybe because it's called "Timid" in Japan, and that is a word that describes me.
