I fell in love with blogging almost a year ago. It was place to talk about anything: Mangas, School, games, you name it.
So why is it I havent made a post in nearly a month?
- I’ve been sick and and unmotivated.
I had this cold back in February and it was not that bad. It keep me bed for long periods of time, because more than I was sick, I was just always tired. I don’t sleep right to begin with but I was always woke up before 11am. I can’t really say I have since I got this cold. Which makes being productive hard when I sleep for half the day.
2. School work out of nowhere.
If you follow my blog any you know in January I was doing a daily blog(If you didnt check it out than I highly recommend it) and was taking five classes and trying to start working. I was completely fine than. However, somewhere along the line my classes up’d the work out of nowhere and so many test, and written assignments, and discussions were due. I had to drop 2 classes just to even be able to balance all the things I was doing. It sucked.
3. Started a Youtube Channel
I’ve stated before Youtube was my first love. I started my first channel back in ’09 and slowly fell out of it. I went out and bought my first mic and editing software and fired up the dream once more. I started blogging back last summer. This Youtube channel has been in the works since the summer of 13. While the blog was a spur-of-the-moment thing and the youtube channel has been very calculated, I wanted to give equal attention. Sadly, I have not. The blog actually takes a lot of time and money(in some instances). Somewhere along the lines my time shrunk. This also goes hand in hand with motivation. Sometimes recording a youtube video is as easy as hitting record, playing the game, and just talking along with it. The blog, however, I either have to watch an entire anime, read a volume, or what have you, and than plan it out.
4. Decreasing Quality
Maybe the biggest reason. Watching anime, reading manga, playing the games, is not the the hard part. It’s the planning the post. I like to be insightful, unbiased, and salt in my own brand of off beat humor. I begun waiting to the last moment and just throwing together material and it got to the point of asking myself “Would I actually read this myself”. This has slowed me down greatly. Everything stems from being unmotivated. I get basically no hours at my job, my apartment is up for inspection later this month, I’m in this weird transition period between possibly transferring colleges and moving nearly 6 hours away, and everything kind of has me in a funk. One of the few things making me happy is making videos and my voice has been gone for the better half of a month so I cant even do that.
As the title suggest, I am going to talk about youtube.
I am currently doing a Pokmeon Golden Age Let’s Play. I think it is going to finish up with 8 or 9 videos. I also do unboxings every Saturday. I’ve already opened two mew collection boxes and will be opening the Celebi box sometime this week! I also will be opening the dual box for Magic the Gathering and the latest structure deck of Yugioh. My top fives will eventually migrate over to the channel as well. I’m working on putting together a let’s play of Pokemon Gray Topaz and Zelda: Minish Cap. I’m debating on doing Dragon Ball Z Legacy of Goku 2 and Super Mario 64. Anime and Manga reviews may or may not move over to the channel(They may stay a blog exclusive)
Go Subscribe to Dahubbz on Youtube.
A new category. Crunchyroll has a random feature that will assign you a random episode to watch. I want to integrate this into the blog. I will watch episode one of a random anime that crunchyroll spits out at me and give my opinions on it and call this “Random Wednesday”. It’s just a test run but I’ll try it out either this Wednesday or the next so be on the look out!
N64 was the first console I ever played and for that reason some of my favorite games are on this system. Here is my list of my favorite N64 games:
#5- Mario Kart- Mario Kart 64 was the first game that brought my entire family together. From my grandma to my two uncles, to my mom and dad, to me and my brother. We would all gather around and have a tournament. It was amazing. Everyone had their favorite character. I was Yoshi, my mom was Luigi, my brother was Mario, My mawmaw was toad, my uncle was Wario. It was a great time in my life. It brought us a lot of joy.
#4- Super Mario 64- This game was incredible to me and means a whole lot to me. I tried to get 120 stars and years later im still at 118 and that bugs me to the moon and back. The last two stars I need are for collecting 100 coins on the clockwork level and the magic carpet level(The last two levels). I will get them one day! Anyway, this game captivated me. I spent hours finding all the secrets, discovering every inch of every map. It was a wonderful experience.
#3- Super Smash Brothers- This game was an incredible idea. Blending the world of Nintendo into one game. This is probably the first game I unlocked things in. I remember rushing through the main campaign to unlock Captain Falcon. Now a days, I am obsessed with unlocking everything a game has to offer and this is probably where my obsession started.
#2- Donkey Kong 64- This game has probably stole the most time of mine more than any other N64 game. I absolutely am in love with this game. From getting the DK crew, to spending HOURS collecting all the bananas, to my favorite part, the DK rap! The best part is this game recently was added to the Wii U virtual library. YES!
Before we get to number 1, here’s some honorable mentions everyone should check out: Mario Party 2, Paper Mario, Star Fox 64, Pokemon stadiums, Kirby and the crystal shards, and 007 golden eye.
#1- Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time- Probably no surprise here. But there is a reason for it being number 1 other than it being one of the best games Ive played, even to this day. This was the first game I really learned to play. Now, almost twenty years letter, it is still amazing! Ive beat, I collected everything, Ive done everything. The memories are still strong and if I played it today I could probably still do most of the stuff in the game. Its great, if I havent mentioned it already. It started my love for Zelda and I’ve played every one except Skyward Sword. This game is kind of a big deal. If you’ve never played it, do yourself a favorite, play it!
