It’s the season of giving. Giving gifts can change the world. Most people don’t need stuff, they need to know somebody cares. Here’s a holiday gift guide from Kid President!
New thing to do: Visiting a board game cafe
So I recently discovered the existence of board game cafes, and it sounded kind of fun, and gave us something new to try, so we found one downtown and went there as a family :D
The games we played were:
- Show-off! (pictured above)
- Mad Gab
- Reverse Charades
- Pass the Bomb
( We wanted to play Risk too, but it was taking us too long to read the instructions, and we wanted to get in as many games as we could before the kids started to get tired, so, we went for the shorter, easier-to-learn type games. :) Which means all the games listed above are pretty easy to just open the box, skim the rules, and get playing right away! :D)
After that, we explored the area around the cafe on foot, ate some food, went to this huge department store that claimed to have really cheap deals, chatted with some street musicians, and checked out retro book and video game stores! :D We also ran into some crazy mirrors, and those are always loads of fun. ;D So all in all, quite the fun little adventure we had~ And it’s always an adventure for us when we spend time together as a family ^-^ Yay for family hangouts!
On the topic of board games, if you’re someone who loves board games and plays them a lot (we don’t really play them as often, but I ran across this site and thought it would be useful to someone who does), this site might be worth checking out:
Note that I’ve never actually tried this myself, but it seems to be a pretty good deal for regular board game players, who like trying new board games often, but don’t feel like buying so many of them without knowing how good/re-playable they are. :)
Ok then. Enjoy~ :D
Someone once asked how to make ice.
There are better ways to release emotions than to harm yourself or others. Please promise me you’ll find one that works for you!

Art Prompts is a great resource for any artist! :D Awesomely creative drawing prompts and other art resources. :) Definitely worth checking out! ^^
Starting a new blog is a whole new experience in and of itself!
This is today’s featured new thing.
I’m thinking of changing the way I post things on here, to be a little different, a little more personal, and less general.
'Cause. I think that's what I wanted this to be.
From now on, the posts will be numbered.
And each post will be about something new that I personally tried. And a lot of times, they might not be anything new for most people. But they’re new for me.
Okay, anyway~ :)
This blog will just be to keep track of things. And to keep myself encouraged to never stop trying new stuff! ^-^
Yay for personal blogs~
You can still get new ideas for yourself from here too ;D
I mean, there’s gotta be at least some things I try, which are new for other people visiting this blog. And maybe seeing someone else try it, will inspire you to give it a shot too! :D
Yay for trying something new!
Enjoy today, everyone~ :D
Ok, hi again! :P I ran out of space in my other message, so I'll continue with the suggestions here: ok so libraries, library books, public transportation stops (like bus stops?), or inside buses, like leaving them on bus seats, community mail boxes... You could also give them to specific people, like under-appreciated workers such as janitors or bus drivers... slip a thank you letter or something under the door of a janitor's office maybe? :) I don't know~ Just some ideas~ ^-^ Hope they help :)
Hi There! Thanks for these great suggestions! You rock! I’m delighted to hear that you like my blog and project. I tell you, it’s a blast! I’ll definitely be trying out some of your ideas. Thanks again, friend!
no problem! i love your blog+project! :D it’s absolutely wonderful what you are doing, and i’m happy to be able to help even if just a little. ^-^ keep it up! you are awesome! :)
(also. hi, i’ve changed to this username now. :P but i’m the same person~ ^^ my thelittleadventureblog.tumblr.com is now under this name too. everything’s just moved over. :P)
only the best. anime. ever.
i recommend it to everyone.
Most importantly, we must never forget to believe.
Fun - We Are Young - OST “The Sims 3 Showtime”
MY FACE HURTS FROM LAUGHING
WE BAH YUUUUUUUUUU
THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE WORDS BUT IT’S NOT WORDS
THAT IS SIMLISH FOR YOU, MY FRIENDS
I just went way back into my dash (like 50th page for shits and giggles) and found this gem.
when i bought Showtime I was checking the songs in the Juke Box and when I found this I died it’s still the best thing I’ve ever found on the Sims
this is like halfass simlish too. ITS SO FUNNY
i feel like this is a really good approximation of what English sounds like to people who don’t speak English
haha, i love this. XD
So I ended up changing the whole plot (+characters+everything) for my nanowrimo novel. A short excerpt from this new development :0 is below:
Run, run, run. It’s raining. The sky is dark, the clouds are grey. But you love the rain. He loves it too. Careful, don’t trip on the piles of snow. Where did the snow come from? You didn’t remember the snow. But there it was, piled up in huge mountains, trying to slow you down. Trying to keep you from reaching him. Before he got away. You are out of breath, and feeling like you’re almost choking, but you keep running. You keep running with all that you have. You have to catch that raindrop, before it reaches the ground. Don’t stop. Don’t look back. Just run, and keep on running. You trip, you fall. No, no, no. Not again, not this time. You feel a cough attack coming – you just recovered from a cold. Running this hard while it’s minus twenty degrees outside is never good for someone who is in poor health. But you can’t let yourself cough. You hold your breath. Your knees are starting to hurt. The snow seems to be getting red. Are you bleeding? The piles of snow seem to be getting higher. Is the rain falling harder? Yes, yes it is. It’s almost blinding you. You are getting dizzy, from holding your breath for so long. But that won’t stop you. No. The raindrop is falling, and you have to catch it. You have to catch it before it reaches the ground. Before it crashes on the ground and breaks apart into a million little pieces; pieces that can never be put back together. Just like the pieces of your heart. There’s a gnawing pain crawling up your legs – you were never too good at long-distance running – it’s crawling, crawling, all the way to your heart. It wraps itself around your throat – the throat that was already aching from holding back the coughs – but you don’t care. You don’t have time for this. You can’t let him get away. Not now, not again. You let yourself fall hard on the wet cement sidewalk, laying yourself down and reaching your palm out as far as it would go, placing it right under the raindrop, right before it hits the ground. Yes! You did it. You will catch it. You will catch the raindrop. You reach out, ready to grab his jacket, before the light turns green. The light turns green. He begins to walk. You missed. You begin to fall. No! Don’t go! Don’t leave me here! It’s cold. It’s raining. I’m cold. I’m falling. Don’t leave me here. I need you. Don’t go! And then he was gone. The raindrop falls, hitting the cement lake you are lying on, slipping through the gaps between your fingers. There is a lake underneath you now, and you don’t know how to swim. You close your eyes, imagining you too, are like the raindrop, and let yourself hit the ground. Crash. Break into tiny little pieces. Pieces that can never be put back together again.
The First Picture = A Collection of Peeta (<3) Quotes :D
I made this last summer when I first fell in love with the beautiful words of Peeta Mellark from Suzanne Collin’s “The Hunger Games” series, and I just really wanted a wallpaper out of a bunch of his quotes. :B Most quotes are by peeta, some by Katniss (the ones in the Optima font). :) Peeta x Katniss = Love.
Visit deviantArt for a larger view :)
p.s. if anyone wants me to make something similar to this for them, with some other quotes, or for some other character, just let me know (message me, or comment on this post) :D i’d be happy to do so ^^
