FINALLY!!! xD

‘Kay I know this isn’t my usual video game/anime post, but I thought I would do a post about this cause 1. I know my BF and other people I know would probably like to know about this and 2. IT’S DIVERGENT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!

Anyways…THE DIVERGENT TEASER IS FINALLY OUT!!!

Is it asking too much that I still want more? 😥 I keep watching it over and over again…Hey, I’m sure I’m not the only one doing it…right? xD I’m so happy that Nikita (well, that’s her character’s name in the TV show “Nikita”) is playing Tori and Four looks exactly like I pictured him!! Ahhh…!! Now I have to go and reread the books…and watch this teaser a billion times more…xD

Maximum Ride Movie Poster

I had to do a movie poster for a book for a school project so, I picked James Patterson’s “Maximum Ride: An Angel Experiment”! I FINALLY finished it a few minutes ago and I thought I would show it to you guys! So, here ya go!!! ^o^

If I had more time I think I would have fixed her hair up a bit and some other things, but I’m REALLY happy of how it turned out!!!!!!! 😀 ^O^ If you haven’t read the AMAZING “Maximum Ride” series you should start right away!!! You can probably find it at your local book store since it’s very popular. If you not the novel-reading type, there is a graphic novel out for it with so far 6 volumes and counting out (which is how I got started on the series, but the books are of COURSE WAAAY better)! ^_^

School and Things Like “When You Beat That Really Hard Boss in a Video Game”

I just want to apologize to my viewers for not posting that much in an entire month! -_-” I’ve just been crazy busy with school and homework lately that I haven’t had time!! SORRY!!!!! 😥 To make up for it, here’s something I had to do at school where we write something that’s really awesome such as, the smell of rain on a hot sidewalk, popping bubble wrap (cause NOBODY likes doing that…haha) and more. My teacher has been reading “The Book of Awesome” to us to get an idea of what to write about and HOW to write our own! So, I decided to write about the feeling you get “When You Finally Beat That Really Hard Boss in a Video Game”!!! And YOU guys get to read it!!! ^_^ 😀 I would appreciate it if you guys could let me know if I need to change, take out or put in anything, but you can just read it if you would like!! ;D Here it is!!!

When You Finally Beat That Really Hard Boss in a Video Game

Remember that feeling of triumph when you FINALLY beat that really hard boss in a video game? You’re near the end of a really awesome game that you’ve been playing non-stop when all of a sudden you enter a cut scene and then you hear the villain’s theme in the background and you know what’s about to happen. You get ready as the villain comes out and then the cut scene finally ends after you talk a little bit to him or her, trying to convince them to stop whatever evil deed they’re doing this time. The game goes into battle mode and you either start to button mash or use a strategy; and then it happens. The game gives you a warning to let you know your health is running dangerously low and the boss/villain attacks you with one more hit and suddenly the main character you’re playing collapses to the ground and doesn’t get up. You realize that you’ve died as the screen fades into the “GAME OVER” screen and you scream “NOOOOO!!!!!!!” in frustration. The game asks you if you either want to “Retry”, “Save” or “Quit” and you’re so full of adrenaline and you’re on the edge of your seat, so you press “Retry”. After several attempts and dying several times, you’re SO frustrated that you decide to press “Quit” this time and don’t pick the controller/console up again for at least a few days to a week. After looking at the game cover while walking past it and yearning to see those end credits, you decide to try one more time, even more determined than before. The same cut scene you’ve seen for what feels like the thousandth time plays again as you stare determinedly at the screen getting ready to fight for your life and save the world. The cut scene ends and you begin to fight the hardest you have ever fought before. As you go along it gets a little harder as the boss gets more determined because they’re losing so much health. Then, it happens. The moment you’ve been waiting for since you started this epic adventure! The villain either collapses on the floor unconscious, screams “NOOO!!!!” as they perish or (insert villain/boss’ reaction to you defeating them here). You press pause and then put the controller or console down as you jump up, do a victory dance and yell things like, “YEAH!!!” or “TAKE THAT YOU (insert insult towards the villain here)!!!!!!” or “I DID IT!!!! I FINALLY BEAT HIM/HER!!!!!!!!” feeling triumphant and like you can do anything. Your mom, dad, sister or brother comes running out wondering what’s going on as you do your little victory dance and you explain to them that you FINALLY beat that really hard boss and then they leave. You pick the controller/console up again and unpause it and watch the final cut scene and the ending credits that you’ve longed to see, feeling very happy and good about yourself because well, you finally beat that really hard boss in a video game, folks! AWESOME!!!!
