Well. Been a while since any kind of journal post thingy. I've been busy, oh God. Trying to make sure to study for finals (haha, didn't end up happening. But I got over 80% on both of the most important ones anyway, so yay) and, hm. Well, do all the other work I needed to do. It's also put a bad stunt in taking photos. However, I'm uploading some to my stash to publish later on right now, and I'm in the middle of publishing the last batch as I write this. So, lots of new photos coming up (if they're not up already by the time anyone reads this).

I also graduate from high school tomorrow. I'm pretty excited. But also a bit sad, because I move soon, and I've spent the last 8 years or so of my life going to this school and being near this town. Still, looking forward to college. Just a bit sad to see my time here ending, with me likely to never be back...

Also, I'm the Salutatorian of my class (but it's a very very small school, 23 or so people, so... it's not as big of an accomplishment as it could be. I rank like... top 100 in the district though I think. So, yeah, woo.) Regardless, that means I have a speech to do. I got the third ranked in my class to be able to help me, and we put together the most awesome and stupid at the same time thing ever made. It's simply horrible and amazing. It's cheesy and silly and like one of those super super low budget movies, but it remains awesome in its own right. Cheesy, cheesy awesomeness. Oh, right - it's a half speech, half video hybrid. Almost all the speeches ever made in the past at this school have been so bland and boring and REPETITIVE that we decided we needed to do something really different. And it is, and hopefully everyone's gonna like it. I can post the video used and the script of the speech if anyone wishes to see it.

Lots of thank you letters for both my grad gifts I've been getting, too. Can't complain about that though. I'm really excited and happy with how things're going for me right now, how's everyone else who's reading this?

P.S. Thank you to all my routine followers who've stayed with me and enjoyed my photos as I continue to do them. Most of the upcoming ones are scenery, but I've tried a couple other things this time as well. Finally got some nice animal shots: SWANS. WOO.





Edit to include speech and video link (read the speech and get to the part where it's noted the video starts. At fade to black go to the speech again)----
Video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwQTgR…
Speech:
Isaiah: Hello everyone, I'm Isaiah Olson, and the Salutatorian of the senior class this year. And this is the part of the program where I do a looking forward speech. With that said…

Sam: *enter stage* Alright, hold on, wait a minute. This is so boring. No one wants to sit here and watch another speech, that's just like every other year. We need to spice this thing up.

Isaiah: Why Sam, this is entirely unprecedented.

Sam: Shut up.

Isaiah: Well, this is happening. So, Sam, what did you have planned for today, specifically?

Sam: Well, I prepared a song. Hit it! *Sam does a very short Gangnam style parody thing*

Isaiah: *interrupts* No no no, Sam, no. This is entirely unacceptable. This speech should be about looking towards the future, our futures. We all have great possibilities ahead of us, not lame Korean-pop parodies.

Sam: Oh, right, uh… future. Well luckily, I thought of that too! Here's a video highlighting what our future will likely entail. *short video clip plays, off topic * See? Wasn't that better?

Isaiah: Riveting, Mr. Carlson, but still off topic. You don't cover what we're supposed to talk about – all the good times we've had and, more importantly, the bright futures we all have in front of us. And that is not a laser filled apocalypse.

Sam: Oh, well, I've got the perfect thing! Trust me this time.

Isaiah: And that is?

Sam: Uh, well… another video using a popular fantasy series used as a metaphor to explain the journey and adventure that is ahead of all of us.

Isaiah: That's the Lord of the Rings, isn't it?

Sam: …Yeah. *start video*

In Video:
Isaiah: It all started in pre-school, we had our journeys laid out in front of us.

Sam: The journey would be perilous. We would gain fellowship, making many allies and friends.

Isaiah: However, this wouldn't come without losses and hardships along the way.

Sam: But, through it all, we've made it to the end – of this first journey.
Isaiah: We now have a longer road ahead of us. A harder road, and one where some of us part ways.  

Sam: However we still, together, head towards our futures. Some of our paths may yet cross, but our fates are all our own to make now.

Isaiah: There will no longer by any guiding hands nor pre-determined course.

Sam: May we be warriors or healers, or rulers of the land, it is our path to forge.

Isaiah: Today is our final day all together before we venture forth. We head out to the dangerous, the unknown—

Sam: —but also the hopeful and bright horizon. The past is behind us. The future is ahead.

Isaiah: No matter what our individual goals, we will, beyond all doubts, conquer our malleable dreams.

Sam: We shall temper a sword of our destinies, and to this end… *video switches and goes to something silly* So, Isaiah, how was that?

Isaiah: It was… precious. And, well, all I can say is that I'm glad to be with you, Samwise…here at the end of all things.
Sam: Well yes. To you, and to all others who have been part of the fellowship this far, I bid you farewell as we all go on our paths.

Isaiah: Before we all split off for our own trails, remember this: we are our own masters now, of our fates and of what accomplishments we will have. Remember the words of Aragorn: "My friends, you bow to no one."

Got to love video games and the occasional book. Also aspriring otaku toward anime xD Generally a fan of LPers on YouTube, for the rare few who hold any amount of humor-value, rather than the tons of droning, dull, boring people out there. I don't find the most popular people very good though, usually, it seems... Beyond that, mostly the stff I've put up are silly edits done in MS Paint for jokes between friends and I, on the forum and chat (that's linked below.) Though, if I get to drawing more, I'll probably try and put my mediocre works up :P

Also, I do LPs myself, though not really been doing it for that long. CursedNoven would be my YouTube username. Screw whoever took Noven, and then, Novenari. NOVENARI WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MINE, MIIIINE. DX Erm, yeah. Dunno much of what else to say. All around super-nerd and no-life. I don't regret it. :D And yeah, feel free to call me Noven. If I get the chance, I'm switching this godawful username I picked so rashly... B(

Noven! I just wanted to tell you - I was on the Tumblr in Action subreddit, and there was a link to incorrectusage's post about SJWs and their decidedly unjust way of handling things, and I was going through the notes and saw your reblog. I was all like, "wait, that Noven?" And lo and behold, I was right! I recently deleted my tumblr, but it didn't seem like I could message you there, anonymously or not. SO HERE I AM. And I agree with what you said - people like them are the reason I tend to be suspicious of self-proclaimed feminists. Gah.

Hello! I would just like to thank you for being involved in our group, #PhotographyCraze! I was wondering if you've heard about our recent contest or not? I've submitted several journal entries, but I know not everybody pays attention to them, so I decided to go around and spread the message further to each and every one of our members. :3 I hope you don't mind. 

This contest is fairly simple. All you have to do is submit a picture of your favorite domesticated animal into this folder - photographycraze.deviantart.co... - and leave a short note in its description box. You are allowed to submit up to three deviations.

We are giving point prizes to the winners. If you don't wish to participate in the contest, maybe you'd like to donate to the contest instead? If you wish to donate points or any other prizes, just send us a note and we'll add you to the prize list. 

If your deviation is already in our group, just tell us and leave a link to said deviation in a note or comment on our page and we'll move it into the right folder for you!

Always like to try to keep in touch but it is becoming increasingly time consuming, I must admit. Don't really like the idea of "Journal thank you" but it might become a necessity. :lol:

Now make one last & final wish about that one wish that you picked.





After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people, and
what you wished for will come true within in one week!





u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your
crush!!!





Keep going

down





Keep going





Keep

going





!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was your last chance. Now
pay very close attention this important message!



Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda
chain letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1864 and
if you break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing
these stories.





First Example:



Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl, up till she got this
same chain letter. She had a crush on the same kid since kindergarden.
when she got this mail she didn't pay any attention to it. She just
thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her dad got fired and
her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have sent the letter none of
that would have happened and her mom would be alive.





Second Example:



Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average nerd. Had glasses, was
short and chubby, was in gifted. All the signs of
your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51
people in the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since
3rd grade. The next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her
love for him ever since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to
ask her out, and of course, she had been waiting to yes to that for
years. They grew up and
married each other to live happily forever.





Third Example:



Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll get ya hooked. Listen
to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just getting on AOL to check
his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that popular but not a geek either. he
was just normal. He saw he had mail from his friend. It was this exact
letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart kid and he knew what could
happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled a few friends from his buddy
list and sent it along. The next day, about that same time, he got a
phone call. It said he had won the lottery!
then his dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him
Nintendo64 and play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer, and
his best friend
gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and Limp
Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was goin'
wild! the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been
going out ever since.





Now, you heard the stories. I know which person i'd rather
be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but thats
only me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to go out
withthat special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you
send this to-



1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love life..... forever!!!!!



10 people- your crush will say they like you as a friend......
ONLY!!!!!



15 people- your crush will say they like you



20 people- your crush will ask you out!



25 people- your crush will kiss you!!
