Well Here We Are Again, It's Always Such a Pleasure

What? It’s October already? Well, it was a good break, while it lasted. So yeah, hello and welcome to Weekly Ramble number Twenty-Five, not the twenty-fifth consecutive ramble (obviously) but the twenty-fifth ramble written for this blog~thing. As per the norm, I’ll be changing things up with this next run of rambles, sure the site itself hasn’t changed, but I like the way it looks as-is. I’ll have a little section below dedicated to what’s new and/or changing with rambles, as well as stuff, and things and more stuff-type things!

 

As always when I tire of rambling and decide to take a break, I take some time to look at what rambling is doing for me and each time that I do this I see that rambling is a great thing for me to be doing. Sure, I may not get a lot of views, but to be honest (and this is a point that I usually forget) these rambles aren’t meant for you. I’m not writing these to entertain people, I’m writing these rambles to get rid of all of the gobbledygook that occupies my mind so that I can have space to think and to grow when I actually work on writing that matters. So these rambles are for me, but if you read them, and you like them and they entertain you to a certain point, then that’s fantastic! More often than not though, I lose sight of the fact that these rambles are for me, that they help me free my mind and I get tunnel-vision’d on the fact that people (or a person, who knows) are reading these rambles and I try to do my best to entertain them, which turns the act of rambling into a chore, which leads to me not wanting to ramble anymore. Hopefully the next time I decide to take a break, it’ll be for a better reason than not wanting to ramble anymore, but I guess only time will tell.

 

Okay, now that that’s out of the way let’s talk about some of the changes around here! Remember “Semajj’s Bookshelf”? Well it’s gone! Remember “The Watch List”? Well it’s gone! Remember “Songs to Ramble to”? Well it’s gone too! I have my reasons for cutting these out of the rambles. For the bookshelf, it was getting to the point where it was a lot of work to brag about every little thing that I bought, so I may still brag about some of my cooler purchases, but it doesn’t need to be a weekly thing, right? The watch list never really took off for me, I don’t really care if you know what I’m watching or what I’ve watched, I’ll still ramble about anime from time to time, but there’s not going to be a separate page dedicated to it anymore. The same goes with the “Songs to Ramble to” page, in fact I’m not even sure if it’s published or not, if it is you probably won’t miss it because it’s more or less empty. I’m still gonna share new songs with the Song of the Week, but if you want to see certain songs, you’ll have to go back to the ramble that the song was featured in to find it, otherwise a simple YouTube or Google search will suffice.

Let’s see, what else, what else. I’m going to start a new version of the Motivation Game soon. I tried re-booting it a few weeks back when I was in a horrible state of laziness, but it never went anywhere. So as soon as I get all the details ironed out I’ll be sure to post the rules and what-not in a ramble. There’s other stuff, but I guess I’ll cover it as it comes!
 
 
 
It really is amazing how quickly these rambles reach the 1k word mark, but then again, I guess a month’s worth of gobbledygook is well worth a thousand words. So, about that short story series that I’m writing, you know, “RE:Inspiration; Titan” well, I said I’d try to have part III out by the end of September, and I was making good time with the first draft, but it started to run a bit long (20,000+ words long) so I decided to turn it into a quadrilogy instead of a trilogy and I continued to work on the fourth part instead of polishing the third part. Then I stopped rambling and all of those filler-nonsense thoughts started to cloud the way and I kinda lost motivation to write, so T3 isn’t that close. I know where it’s going; I just need to spend the time working on how to get there (and all the little details that go with it). So, it’s on its way, but still a ways away.

 

And to wrap things up I’m going to share a few things:

First is World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, this game is the best thing that’s happened to WoW since ever. It just blows Cataclysm out of the water on every level!

Second is /AMP/. I’ve shared /Anime Motivational Posters/ before and I’ll share it again. If you like anime and jokes then you might want to check us out on the Crunchyroll forums!

Thirdly is /AMP/’s Youtube Channel we post small video compilations of random (and sometimes not-so-random) posts here, accompanied with some awesome music, cool!

Fourthly is my Smashwords profile. You can find “RE:Inspiration; Titan” and “RE:Inspiration; Titan II” available for free download there, what a deal!

And finally is this week’s Song of the Week:
 
 
That was “Cemetery Walk” by my friend from /AMP/ zendude. The video was the latest video posted on /AMP/’s YouTube Channel, so if you enjoyed it please head over to YouTube and check out the rest of our stuff! Anywho, enough advertising, let’s wrap this up: if you’ve got any questions, comments, tips or concerns you can let me know via e-mail (Semajj07@gmail.com) or you can leave a comment in the section below. “They woke me up when September ended, now what?”
