About Divergent DaysSo, I will be posting chapter 3 of DD on fimfic soon, which is where the fic itself begins to "change" from the original version. I know many of you enjoyed what I had already done with it, but after two years of thinking, plotting, and more MLP episosdes, I've had more ideas and better ways to execute scenes. Plus, I like to think my writing has improved.
That being said, I will be removing DD from dA every time I upload the next chapter on fimfic here. There is the link to it, so if you wanna keep track of it's progress then go there. And since it has been two years, I would recommend re-reading it as I post it there, for it will be going through changes.
Good news!I woke up this morning, which means I survived my birthday!
I just wanted to say thank you all who wished me a happy birthday. I've been watching M*A*S*H again, so for my birthday me and my friends played poker and drank... well, I drank... but in true M*A*S*H fashion! So, hopefully I'll be gettin' some work done with fics over on fimfic.
Divergent Days!A young mare approached me the other day, asking "ROB, just what has happened to your magnificent fan fiction called Divergent Days?" I explained to her how I've been busy with planning the Fillidelphia ruins salvaging. And she nodded, smiling the entire time, gaining my trust. Of course, she only did this in an attempt to get near me so she could attack me with a crude dagger she had carved out of stolen scrap metal. Needless to say, her attempt failed her. But did I have her killed? No, I did not. I sent her to the pit, where she could-
wait... oh yeah, derp... Been listening to my Fallout Equestria audiobooks again... anyway.
Welp, it's finally begun! The first chapter of Divergent Days is finally up on fimfiction.net! http://www.fimfiction.net/story/168110/divergent-days
I know many of you have been asking, pestering, wondering, begging, crying and curling into a ball at night in anticipation for when I'd ever get to finishing the fic. Well, I'm still quite a bit far from ac
CMCon!"Hey ROB, where the hell have you been?"
Well faithful watcher, I've been busy. Writing? Pfft, hell no. I've not done jack shit in like a year. I'm still amazed people are even watching me. Anyway, so in case you may think that I just don't write, or don't want to, that's not it at all actually. I'm actually writing still! Am I posting anything? No, 'cause 99% of it isn't really "post-worthy" at this time. Mostly it's all ideas, concepts, and horribly rough drafts. For quite some time, I've just been so tired after working at both my job, with my father, and going to school, I don't really do much other than play some video games on occasion with my friends.
I'm trying to get one of these fics post worthy. But well, only time will tell.
Now, to what this is actually about.
I'M GOING TO CMCon AT THE END OF MAY! In... Colombus, Ohio? I think so... anyway, yea I'm going. If you'd like to talk to me or say hello, keep an eye out for a big guy with a red/black pladd hat with two Maci
Thank you all!So, just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes, fan art, and lightbulb pics you sent me! It means a lot to know that even though I'm a wash up people still care. As a reward, I'm hoping to get a little one shot I've worked on out and posted. I can't promise it will be all that great, but well it's been too long since I've done anything, and I really, really hate it. When life gets in the way though, what can you really do? I guess not much...
Also, this would have been out sooner, but with my birthday and St. Patty's day on a single weekend... well, lets just say, my room has a lot of empty Sunkist and Whiskey bottles...
What I wouldn't give for a lightbulbFrustration.
All these emotions, and more, are what I am feeling right now. It all began several hours ago, when my last lightbulb burnt out. So, what does a sensible man do? Not what I do, anyway. I scrounged all my spare lamps, but alas, they too were bulbless! I was, officially, out of lightbulbs. So that meant then I had to do what any sensible man would, and that's go to the store and buy some lightbulbs.
Now, I'm not sure how you all are, but personally I'm not a huge fan of the florecent, swirly bulbs that are everywhere. They have their uses, yes, but for general use I like a normal incandescent light bulb. They come on instantly, they're just the right brightness, and better yet for outdoor use they actually make heat (great for when it's snowing and the wind is blowing, helps keep the snow from building on the bulb). BUT TO MY SURPRISE, WHEN I WENT DOWN THE LIGHTBULB AISLE IN THE HARDWARE STORE, THERE WERE NO INCANDESCENT BULBS TO BE SEEN. Only
MLP Gameloft gameSoooooo... it just recently got put out on the android market for smart phones. It's a lot of fun, actually. Though I gotta admit, I laughed way harder than I should have when I performed a sonic rainboom with Macintosh in that flying game. So yea, would you kindly add me to your gameloft friend list? Because to get more of those stupid hearts I gotta add people 'n such. Can you guess my name? If not... that's just sad.
Preparing for moving day!That is, from deviant Art to Fimfiction.net for all of my fictions!
No offense to dA, but fimfiction's writing format is much easier to use and work with. I'll never fully abandon my roots here. I'll still use dA for my updates in journals, or when I'm streaming. I'll still also check on messages, comments, and the such.
http://www.fimfiction.net/user/ROBCakeran53 There is my fimficion account, so if you wish to continue following me for my stories (because what else do I do here?) then I highly recommend keeping better track there.
With this also being stated, I will be slowly moving "Divergent Days" to fimfic while I am doing some last minute edits and such, so I can continue it's story. For the five of you who read "Luna's Gift", a one off one shot I did a year ago, that too will be making it's move there, again after some revision and a possible continuation of the story since it was originally intended to be longer.
Welp, I think that's about it. Expect to see the next update to "

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XD
TLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented.
- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable
- All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage
- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)
- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)
- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting
- No extra

Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH
Hi everyone!I usually hate seeing journals like this, but given that I’ve spent 13 years on this site and met thousands of people, knowing there are at least a few of you who would probably want to hear if something was going on, I figure this is the only way to tell you.
For the past several years I’ve been dealing with health issues that I originally attributed to being overweight and/or having a sedentary lifestyle.
A few months ago, I was dealing with a chronic sinus infection and drainage from hell. To offset my symptoms and maybe get some sleep for once, I went to bed with a breathe-right strip on my nose. I woke up with no nose strip to be found and a weird feeling in my throat, like something was there. I went to the emergency room assuming I had swallowed the strip; they looked in my throat and said they didn’t see any plastic strip, but they did see that my throat (epiglottis, vocal cords etc) was terribly swollen, and because I work at an airport, tuberculosis had to b
