Lots of Hellos

Hello, hello, hello. Today's going to be another short ramble, but it's still a ramble and that's a good sign! So let's just get to it, yes?

Concerning my motivation game: I haven't set the rules and whatnot in stone yet, so not too much to report on that. Well, other than the fact that it's still a work in progress.

Concerning my actual motivation: It seems that I was somehow able to rid myself of the ickyness that was hangin' around last week and I've been able to make progress in several different areas in my life where I seemed to have been stuck for the past few weeks.

Concerning "RE:Inspiration; Titan III": It is also a work in progress, but the final draft is coming along nicely. I've often thought about going back on my word and making "Titan" a three parter again, thus making "Titan III" much easier to end, but I'm not going to do that. I like what I have planned for "Titan IV" even if that's all we're going to see of "Titan" and its characters for a while. If you recall, I once said that after I finish the "Titan" stories I'm going to start working on "NEw". I'll probably start with a fun little story, just to get used to writing the main character a bit more, but the full thing is here (in my head) and I do plan on getting it done sooner rather than later.

Concerning this ramble: I think I'm about done with my report for this week (lol) so I'm probably going to wrap things up for now (I've got stories to tell elsewhere!). Let's see... How about "Hello" by Martin Solveig and Dragonette (at least I think that's the correct band/group name) accompanied by a K-On! amv:

Anywho, this is as far as this train will be going so, as always, if you have any questions, comments, tips or concerns you can leave a comment here on Blogger or you can contact me at or at Twitter @Semajj07. "I found it on the twitters!"

Because I Can

Last week's ramble was short, this is true, but I fear that this week's ramble will be even shorter! I seem to be stuck in a rut. I don't know why but lately I've been feeling very unmotivated and thus my motivation to ramble is very, very low. So here's the deal: I'm going to ramble on for just a bit longer today and next week we'll know if I've found my motivation again. How? Well if I've found my motivation I'll write a ramble, but if I haven't found it I don't think the chances of my rambling are very high.

Do you remember the "game" that I used to play? The one where I gave myself tasks to complete each day? Well I'm bringing it back (for reals this time). The rules will be different and the tasks will have changed, but the game itself will be based on the same idea. I haven't completed my list of tasks, nor my list of rewards, but I have started doing certain tasks just to help get this game off the ground. One big thing is spending, I'm really going to limit how much money I allow myself to spend freely, instead I'll gain money through successfully completing tasks every week. (I'm greedy and money is motivation for me!)
I'll ramble about the whole set of rules and the reward system when I get there and hopefully that'll be next week, but only time can tell.

And that's that. I'm signing off here. Oh wait, here, listen to this:

Good song... good song, aye. Anywho: as always if you have any questions, comments, tips or concerns you can leave a comment here on Blogger or you can contact me at or at Twitter @Semajj07. Pyon~ pyon~ pyon~

The New Year "Bleh"s

Hello and welcome to the first Weekly Ramble in 2013. I should start off by saying two things: “Happy New Year” and “I’m not in a rambly mood today”. There are various reasons that contribute to the “bleh” mood that I am in, one of the greatest reasons is my continued procrastination (and other troubles) with “RE:Inspiration; Titan III” but I’ll save that for later. Other than more excuses about why “Titan III” isn’t finished yet, I’ll tell you a story about a story that I wrote and I’ll probably keep it short. So let’s get to it:


As you probably already know: “RE:Inspiration; Titan III” is still a work-in-progress. I planned on using my time off of work to put on the finishing touches over the holidays, but a surprise visit from my sister turned those plans upside down. In other words, I’m still workin’ on it. It’ll be done when it’s done. I’m sure if you’ve read both parts one and two you’d agree with me when I say: “I’m fine with this taking as long as it needs to become a good story, part one was rushed and I don’t want to make that mistake again.”

In other, other words I don’t have an ETA for “Titan III”. It’ll be done when it’s done. No sooner and, hopefully, no later.


And while you all agree with each other that you aren’t surprised that I’m taking forever and a day finishing this, I can point you to an old story (or fan-fic mash-up thing) that I wrote when I was in middle school: Ninja Chronicles. The reason I bring up Ninja Chronicles is because last season there was an anime called “Chunibyo demo Koi ga Shitai!” and a main theme throughout the show is a “disease” that they call “chunibyo” or “adolescent delusions”. And just like Yuta once believed himself to be the Dark Flame Master, I once had the delusion that being a ninja was possible (without years of training from an actual dojo and whatnot). Sure it is largely based on Naruto because Naruto was a big thing back then, but it is set in a future world where my friends and I are the main characters. As a side note I think it’s pretty funny that the last arc that I wrote in Ninja Chronicles consisted of an army of zombies (hint-hint nudge-nudge).

Anywho, when I was in middle school I was a ninja, my friends were ninjas and I kept track of our adventures. I wrote Ninja Chronicles as a weekly e-mail story and after 16 chapters I decided to re-do the entire thing to make it an actual story and blah blah blah, it got shelved.

So just for fun, if you don’t mind middle-school writing-level writing, I welcome you to see who I was when reality was a bit too difficult to deal with.



And now it’s time for a song and a farewell. This week’s Song of the Week, the first Song of the Week in 2013, is “Midlife Crisis” by Disturbed. Enjoy:


Once again, that was “Midlife Crisis” by Disturbed. That’s all I’ve got for you today, so as always if you have any questions, comments, tips or concerns you can leave a comment here on Blogger or you can contact me at or at Twitter @Semajj07. Pyon~ pyon~ pyon~
