The neopets black market is a buyer's market

Posted by Keil in Awkward Everyday Stuff, 30 November 2018 · 101 views

Nothing in Neopets is worth spending hours on the game to achieve.
(with the exception of spotlights like lookup, art gallery, and the Neopian Times that carry real creative skills outside the game, but that is neither here nor there.)

 

There is no reason to spend 30+ hours within a quarter of the year in the Pound Chat bumping boards, faking politeness and friendships, and upgrading assets to higher tiers when you can buy your dream UC from a shady site with at most five hours of taxed income from a food service or retail job. I wholeheartedly disapprove buying from sites designed to primarily and illegally sell any form of Neopets intellectual property and seeing how their infrastructure works, but it's come to a point where I value people's time than money if it means them doing something better in their lives like being a cashier for Walmart or a Burlington Coat Factory. By then, they would have bought their dream UC pet and maybe a fixed rate anti-zombie insurance for the inevitable apocalypse caused by the US's poorly deregulated agricultural industry.

 

I know for Codex, you can probably buy a Hidden Tower weapon for at most a muffin that isn't toasted enough and a coffee that never gives you the kick that you need to stay awake on your bed browsing the internet. Probably even cheaper.

 

So go buy shit you couldn't buy as a child being covertly and unconsciously fed the pedagogy of Scientology and work your miserable adult lives.

 

This blog post was supported by my gracious patrons back at Patreon and I would like to give a shoutout to UnicornSoulX for bumping out the last of Sweeney's blog from relevancy.

 

Thank you and quirky trademark closing tag wrap up here.



Living a Lie

Posted by UnicornSoulX in Words of Peackocky, 29 November 2018 · 47 views

I look in the mirror. And see my reflection
And all I want is to feel a connection.
To the outside world I may seem ok.
But if you really knew, I'm fading away.
The flame I had that once burned bright
Is barely more than a flicker of light.
Everything around me is dull and dreary,
As my soul grows lone and weary.
As I go on with this life.
All I will feel is turmoil and strife.
I cannot tell whether my smile is real,
So I look to my reflection to understand how I feel.
To you my eyes seem happy and bright,
But to read my mind would give you a fright.
Long gone are the days of true happiness and glee.
When my daughter passed on, so did a part of me.
No one even suspects; I put on a good show.
Everyone thinks I am strong, but that's only what I want them to know.
Every day I wake up is a true struggle.
I'd rather be somewhere else; let me walk through that tunnel.
They say that only the strong survive,
So I guess that's why I'm still alive.
But every day I put on a smile,
And wonder when I will walk my last mile.
Life is precious I know this is true.
And that is why I live like I do.
So just know every day is a lie.
Instead of smiling, I just want to cry.
I wish I could show my true emotion.
But that would cause you true commotion.
I'm empty inside, but only you see
The lies I live, and forever will be.
The heaviness I feel will burden thee.
Which is why I wish my soul was free.
Free from the hurt and all the pain,
And all the thoughts that put me in vain.
And now I'm pushed up against the wall,
Falling faster, please! Just let me fall!
Once I hit the bottom, then you will see!
Then, and only then, will my soul be free.
No more hurt, and no more pain.
Just the moment, I meet my daughter again.

A-kon: KyloRen presents fem Kaiba!

Posted by KaibaSama in Screw the money, I have rules, 11 June 2018 · 451 views
anime, convention, yugioh

Here's the finished fem Seto Kaiba outfit! Everyone loved it! I will be wearing this for all my conventions. Next convention will have some upgrades, including the KC belt and the duel disk!

 

Apparently Konami once made an official KC belt, but I have yet to find it. I've tried to find the belt other ways, but it seems most of what I find is just the buckle. Which would work, but then I'd have to find a green belt that would work with it.

 

The duel disk is very expensive unless I manage to find one at a garage sale or another con where they don't know the price.

 

I would like either a blue eyes plushie to keep on my shoulder for the next one (or a mokuba plushie I can carry around and then leave places and run around panicking). Yes, I did ask people at the convention if they had seen Mokuba. Some people couldn't tell if that was a serious question. It wasn't, there was no one dressed as Mokuba.

 

I didn't like the way the belts kept falling, so I will be using dog collars instead. (We had another Kaiba who looked wonderful running a Yugioh NO shipping panel who used dog collars).

 

The jacket will have silver button instead of the white, and I'll try and make the inside red instead of pink. Probably will just sew in another line (once I figure out how to sew stuff).

 

New shirt will be acquired. This one, when I sprayed fabric refresher on it (as I stupidly only brought one to texas where it's hot), leaked all over the jacket. Hopefully I can fix the jacket, otherwise I'll have to get another.

 

It is my biggest wish that one day someone dresses up as Mokuba. Either a friend, or someone else at the con. If it's a friend, I'm putting them on a kid leash.

 

There was a wig station at the con who were kind enough to help shape my wig. Next year will have better eyebrows, I don't like the ones I had.

 

There was one taken by a professional, and I have his card, but it won't be available for a while.

2017

Posted by Karla in Karla's Stuff and Things, 04 January 2018 · 427 views
2017

TLDR: 2017 was an okay year.

 

Work/Jobs
- On the bright side, I was able to kickstart my career as a graphic designer. I got an internship with a privately held Financial Advisory firm called Monument Wealth Management. I really enjoyed my time there, and I wish it could have turned into a full-time job. But alas, it was not to be.
- My second internship was with a Marketing agency called ImageWorks Creative. I was hoping I'd learn a lot from there, but I didn't. They had me do mundane tasks any child could do, and they were stingy with payment. To add insult to it all, they gave me very little notice about my last day, so I was frantically looking for jobs.
- I applied for over 50 jobs, got 17 interviews (Phone and in person), completed 3 assessments, and only got offers from 2 places. The job offer I accepted was from my previous college. It's a part time job, but at least looking for full-time work will be much easier when my time there is done.

 

Natural Occurances
- Nature was cruel to our neighborhood. Trees were falling down left and right, gusty winds accompanied by torrential rain, and probably one of the hottest summers I've experienced in my entire life. Our house was almost hit by two trees, and our unlucky next door neighbor had a tree pretty much destroy their patio. The rain was so bad one time, that a coworker of mine had their car flooded.

 

Things could've gone better...
- Early this January I got side-swept at a risky intersection. It wasn't even my fault either, because the idiot drifted out of his lane. It took some weeks to get my car fixed, and it turned out more expensive than we previously thought. I'm just glad I didn't get side-swept by a truck.
- My mother was being a complete asshole this year. I couldn't stand her, so I pretty much separated myself from her for about 2 months. I could've gone longer, but I needed her help to get somethings done. I still hate her, but I'm going to hold back my anger until I'm in more of a position to go out on my own. I should also mention that she's pretty much on bad terms with everyone, and is continuing to be a holier-than-thou hypocrite. And it's thanks to her that I can never see my aunt anymore.
- I've gotten to the point where I hate playing with my orchestra. Sure, they pay me to play $50 a week, but it's not worth it. It's not worth traveling to another state in heavy traffic just so I could rehearse a bunch of boring songs with a bunch of people who don't like me. So I've basically given it up. Mom's not happy about it, but who cares what she thinks. It's my life, my decision.

 

Entertainment
- I didn't see very many movies this year, but the ones I did see, I basically enjoyed. My favorite movies were Get Out and Wonder Woman.
- After several years, I finally got to see The Book of Mormon. I enjoyed it immensely. XD
- I got a PS4 last Christmas, and I've only played it twice. I've been focusing on work more than play this year.

 

Politics (WARNING: DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE TRIGGERED BY POLITICS.)
- I think we can all agree that the world, especially the U.S., has been enveloped with a politically hostile atmosphere. Especially ever since Donald Trump got elected. I usually like to keep my political opinions quiet for the sake of preserving friendships, but I'll talk about how I've felt politically during 2017. I am not a huge fan of Donald Trump, but unfortunately I found myself agreeing with a few of his views, especially when it came to immigration and human policy. Don't get me wrong, there's no way we're gonna curb illegal immigration with a damn wall, but at least he's acknowledging that there's a problem with illegal immigration. I'm also not fond of us giving money to countries who are on bad terms with us and like to chant "Death to America." The things I disagree with Trump on is pretty much everything else. XD

 

To sum it all up, this year was good for me productivity-wise, but personally, it's one of the worst when it came to my mental health. I honestly don't see 2018 being any better.



December 2017

Posted by liamusprime in liamusprime's Blog, 02 January 2018 · 314 views

Happy New Year! I hope it was a great one for you. Time to recap December! Let's start with goals for the month:

  • Suprass 10 million in the bank: #Fail ... Stocks didn't increase like I had planned and I started saving dailies for the Charity Corner. We'll put this back on the list for January
  • Get at least one more Secret Lab Piece: Success, 2/9
  • Play Battledome at least 20 days: #Fail - 17/20 ... however, battledome had it's issues for the month, but it's going back on the list for January.
  • Finish up the Plot: HAH ... and it rolls into January, I'm not even going to set it as a goal :-/
Alright, let's get the recap going:

Posted Image

 

Pretty self explanatory. Nothing crazy per say. Once again, I could have played a ton more games. I spent about 2 days committed to nothing but games, however, I still should have played to get another 150k NP. I would like to offset my Market purchases with games earnings.

  • Had the Market boon, so I saved 30k with 6 days of purchases @ 10NP per share
  • Advent calendar this month! a smooth 32k from that
  • Not as much Trading/Shop, I look to increase that for January
  • Hit the fruit machine for 15k and Buried Treasure for 20K in the same day. That was fun...
  • Was gifted about 150k worth of items. If that was you, thanks!
813K np going to the bank. Not bad, here we go, goals for January 18:
  • Battledome, 20/31 days
  • Suprass 10mil (Asparagus Avvie)
  • 456k in games for the month (15k per day, and I'm already 2 days behind ... #GOALS!)
  • Decrease SDB by 10% (currently @ 5077)
Good luck to each of you in the new year!

Belle's Once upon a time dress : pictures

Posted by Liesa in Crap...I'm cosplaying it., 23 October 2017 · 942 views

So I tried something new this time around because I was so unbelievably happy with how my cosplay turned out. Most pictures I get back are crappy quality and I wanted a little more this time so I asked my friend, who I've seen make awesome cosplay photo's, if we could hold like a mini-shoot together. I'm super awkward at it, don't know my angles and all that stuff.

 

 

But she guided me and took a lot of pictures. I just got some back and I just had to share :D
Give her a like at Frangipane Photography if you can :)

It's been a long time

Posted by Chappy in Chappy's Scraps~, 30 July 2017 · 1,225 views

I've been gone for a while so here's some updates :

 

Finally out of college
Full time job at an oral surgeon office (Just front desk stuff), which means I have time to be here.
(I make appointments and listen to angry customers right before they get their teeth pulled)

 

My writing has gotten worse and I need to read again.

 

Oh right I got into make-up.

 

But I still live with my parents.

 

Tada~ You've been updated and now we're all caught up :)

 

If you got any books to read (via kindle or pdf), suggest them for me please :)
I need some education XD

 

p.s. I missed you all. Idk why I left but the important part is I'm back~



Ayyyyyyyyyyyy, come take a look at my baby!

Posted by Plunk in Real Talk, With Your Host: Plunk!, 17 July 2017 · 1,204 views

We finally got some ultrasounds done where the baby looks like a person and not some sort of amphibian's first stage in life. Check this shit out:

 

This one is a side view and it actually looks like a baby. Pretty awesome.

Spoiler

 

This one is the 3D view they did, and looks like something out of "The Hills Have Eyes".

Spoiler

 

And somehow we managed to get a picture of both of it's footers!

Spoiler

 

And that is pretty much all for today, except for one little thing. We've decided not to tell any family members the gender because they're putting WAY too much emphasis on it, but I feel like I can tell you guys because you're just gonna be excited and not make a huge deal out of it.

Cop allowed man to beat her, afraid that shooting him would lead to charges

Posted by BirdistheWord in BirdistheWord's Blog, 25 June 2017 · 771 views

I'm sorry :( We don't allow people, especially cops, to defend themselves from society's finest. It's sad, and unfair. But, it was the right thing to do in this situation......

 

You had to protect yourself, and you did by not shooting him. The physical pain will heal.....but you won't have your little kids or family threatened by thugs and douchebags.

 

Actually, you will still get death threats. I'm sorry. They will still want you dead just because of your job title. Despite the fact that you didn't actually do anything.

 

You will also be looked down upon - these thugs will see you as weak and will go after you.

 

I see the comments - and they still blame you for getting beaten up. things like "The only reason this is a story is because the man is X color" and "Kill or be killed".

 

But, that's not your fault. This world is the problem....and I'm so so sorry.



Restarted the plannah!!

Posted by Maha in I love you to Pieces, 04 June 2017 · 451 views

Aww yiss.

 

Not too far from 90kg now.

 

Finished the planner and then got sick, didn't go to gym for a week.

 

Was good though to rest up properly. Restarted the gym and now have my best friend coming in with me when I go (he noticed changes and wanted to try for himself, hopefully he'll eat a bit healthier? xD)

 

So been tryna do the planner again and help out my best friend in the gym. Its been full on though, I treated the start of the planner similarly to the 1st time but I've tried to keep my weights the same since the 1st 2 weeks are a set of 4, the 1st to being 10 x 10 and the 2nd 2 being 3 x 12. Definitely notice the strength change compared to before gym.. I'm still a weak little mofo but probably 2x as more strength in me now than just over 70 days ago or so.

 

Plus I've been doing a few hours of registers at work at the starts of my shifts now. Which probably helps a bit with my back muscles and my back overall. The start of registers sucked, my back was absolutely killing me within the 1st 2 hours. Now its taking around 4 hours before It hurts too much.. Mainly because I'm not used to the different movement and lack thereof, of walking and other things I usually did/do instead of registers.. But oh well. The reduction of around 10k steps average since doing registers has not seemed to hinder me at all however I definitely do enjoy nightfill far more than registers. So oh well.

 

Its all a great piece of life and I'm really enjoying it.

 

Good things!!! Even my Wife started her new job today, hoping she has a great day!



Back to school?

Posted by Trapezeo in Trapezeo Thinks, 22 May 2017 · 529 views

Well, today I applied to grad school. My bank will pay for 2 classes a year so I'll be slowly getting my degree. The school I'm looking at going to is only 20 miles away so if I do need to take a class in person, it'll be a short drive. The plan is for everything to be online so I don't have to commute.

 

I'll be getting a graduate certificate in Strategic Marketing Management and will eventually roll that into the MBA program. I only need 4 classes for the certificate. If I'm going to stick with banking, I want to become more heavily involved in the marketing department.

 

I'll keep everyone updated on how the process goes! I hope I get in! My undergrad grades were not that great, so who knows.



A small relationship rant, I suppose

Posted by Salade in thoughts/things, 21 May 2017 · 572 views
personal, relationship

(Was originally going to post this in the bad thing that happened to you today thread but then it got super long and I haven't been putting anything into my blog lately. So here we are.)

 

Not a bad day per se, just a bad weekend. My boyfriend and I both have exams tomorrow and the next few weeks, and we're both very stressed. Plus I have 0 self confidence atm because I lost so much weight from having pneumonia and basically my ass deflated. It's a Dutch pancake. Sad. Anyway, people have been telling me even more often to eat more, that I need to gain more weight etc. GUESS WHAT. I know, cheers. Thanks for telling me almost everyday, every single week. Ain't that easy for me, y'all. And then my boyfriend said on Saturday morning during breakfast "Your ass is kinda flat, eat more." And I kind of got a bit pissed at him, because like I said, 0 self confidence and people having told me that several times already. He never ever compliments my physical attributes, so that just rubbed the wrong way. I know that what he said was more him being concerned and trying to push me to be more active physically, but naaaah. And ever since then I feel like he's either trying to provoke me and/or I'm still very very sensitive. Annnd this morning I asked him if it was okay if I left a hairbrush at his place (out of courtesy, I knew he'd say yes but I always need to be polite about shit like that...) and he didn't answer my question and mocked me. Well fuck me for wanting to be polite????? Then I got kinda moody and he noticed when we were on the tram, I explained him why and of course he didn't understand. We both revised at different locations, and we decided to meet up for lunch. He was waiting for me infront of a shop, and on the way there I decided to apologize for my moodiness that morning. Turned out he arrived a few minutes prior to our agreed time and bla bla, I told him he should have told me as he needn't have waited because I was only a 1 minute walk away. he said something along the lines of "Naaah, it was okay, it gave me the chance to look at the women" and that just rubbed me the wrong way again because he knows that I haaaate when he mentions other women in a checking out kind of way infront of me. Something he'd done a few days earlier and I reminded him that I personally find that disrespectful, especially because I have asked him in the past to not make such comments. Was still feeling a bit meeh from that. But then I had a little think about what he'd said and my first thought was that he'd been trying to provoke me. Orrr he was just making a joke. Thing is, I can hardly ever tell if he's joking or not. So I asked him and he said he had indeed been joking. The mood was a bit lighter but I still felt very distant from him and we didn't talk much. I did most of the talking but he didn't seem awfully interested in keeping a conversation going. And then we both went back to our respective study locations and that's that.

 

Also I do realize that I'm very problematic (low self confidence, sensitive af...) but meh. I hope this is a one time thing due to both of us being stressed. I understand why he might have not been interested in talking to me any further, not wanting to accidentally say something that I'd be able to misniterprete and be a sensitive little shit. I wish I could explain all this to him without him telling me that I'm trying to find excuses or telling me it's all my fault for not doing sports. Because according to him, sports is the answer to my eternal social anxiety/shyness, anxiety in general, me being underweight, everything.

 

Right now I just want to tell him that I'm sorry for my part in the last two days, especially since we haven't been able to see each other as much. And he has to prepare for an exam too, so a sensitive girlfriend probably isn't helping with his stress levels. But I'm also super scared anytime I have to talk about my feelings with him, because most of the time it ends with me crying because he just doesn't understand what I'm trying to say and it's my fault anyway. I think we both feel a lot of resentment towards eachother at the moment. Sighhhh.

 

If you've read all this, cheers. I just needed to vent a little. I might call my mum.



Math Test

Today I aced my math test, wow I wish I would do that more often. :)



C++ update

Posted by Rainforce in Rainforce's Blog, 23 January 2017 · 680 views

UPDATE

 

So I managed to write some code, I decided to make an arkanoid/breakout clone instead. I do think I need some help though. I had zero c++/sfml experience before writing this, so bear with me haha.
The code itself is working, but I still need to do some stuff and I wouldn't feel confident showing this in the interview.

 

TO DO LIST:
- Add a score system (+100 points when block is hit)
- Play explosion animation when said block is hit
- Make code more organized (with classes?)

 

Code:

 

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Headers
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <SFML\Audio.hpp>
#include <iostream>
#include <time.h>

//Create the window
sf::RenderWindow window(sf::VideoMode(640, 550), "Explosive Arkanoid");

//Load the sound and music
sf::SoundBuffer boom;

{
std::cout << "SFML error" << std::endl;

Hey guys! I doubt any of you guys noticed my little hiatus, but I indeed had one, lol, We kind of just started a new year and I've noticed all these blog posts about their goals in 2017. I'm not a firm believer of this "New Year, New Me" bull but I'll give it a try. This year, I will have it on record with this blog post, so hold me accountable!

  • Do 200 crunches everyday
  • Read any book, for recreation (notice how I didn't say fun lol) every month.
  • Get a 3.5 GPA or higher during my 2nd semester
  • And most importantly...get past 200k NP in my bank.

 

DEUCESSSSSSSSSS

new year, resolutions

If I actually write down some resolutions in a place they're visible by someone other than me then there's an outside chance I may actually stick to them.. maybe. No promises.

  • No more alcohol. It mixes badly with my meds and ends up leaving me ill for days. It's just not worth it.
  • Lose some weight! I know everyone says this but the only person I'm cheating is myself.
  • Read more. Reading makes me happy, so do more! Anyone have any suggestions I can add to a list? What's your favourite book or series?
  • Stop procrastinating. I've had my etsy store planned for over a year now, just get on with it!
  • Fight the fear. Social anxiety is ruling my life and it needs to stop. There's a meet planned in Feb with the girls from WYOO. I am going. I am. Honestly. :ninja:
  • Learn a new skill. Crochet is cool.. right? and knitting?
  • Positive attitude. It's not healthy for the kids to see me being so negative all the time. I need to be a positive role model.



October...

October was SO busy.
Finished paperwork to graduate with my masters, in December.
Saw Cumberbatch in Frankenstein.
Had a fantastic Halloween party, complete with keg beer for trick or treating parents.
And apparently, I got pregnant.
Yes, through birth control, this past long weekend full of nausea, and a missed period, led to two pregnancy tests that said "YES". I'd be thrilled if I didn't feel like I was going to lose what little lunch I could get down.

Aurora's prison bae has finally gotten out of prison and everything I said would happen happened.

 

Apparently his name is Trey, I literally have been calling him prisonbae for the past 3 years and I still don't really care what his name is. I've been trying to get her to cut things off with him ever since she started this mess of a relationship with him (while he was in prison) because he just sounds like trash. He seemed to me like the type of guy who was just leading her on because he knew he would need a place to stay when he got out of prison. He was released 3 weeks ago and Aurora took off of work to drive 10 hours to Northern California to pick him up and bring him back home. I knew he would try to move in with her because he doesn't have anywhere to go. His sister's dad got a restraining order put on him so he can't live with his mom because of it. She assumed he would eventually move into a halfway house and told me that she would give him a week to find a new place to stay.

 

Lmao I knew that was a lie. I basically completely fell back. When she texted me about him I just kind of ignored her because if you're already complaining 2 days in this clearly isn't working out. I've been warning you for three years, what more is there to say?

 

Fast forward to 3 weeks later. She's texting me with pictures of her crying saying that she's done with him because he made her cry. He hasn't found a job, he hasn't even had an interview. He turned down applying for Jamba Juice because he felt that job was beneath him (bitch,,,) and he told her he wanted to do construction because that's "men's work". I'm assuming by "construction" he means the guys who stand in front of Home Depot and wait for a job. Meanwhile, Aurora is paying for everything. Letting him stay in her home. Buying all of their food, Basically she's sugar mama. And I told her not to fucking be sugar mama.

 

Like if he really loved you he'd want to do better and finally do something for you for a change. You've been putting money on his books, driving a damn near day to go see him, and jumping through hoops for him but what has he done for you? NADA.

 

So now she's crying in my imessage and shit talking about how she's getting drunk tonight and I'm just so not even remotely moved.

I'm not gonna say I told you so, but god damn it bitch I told you so. He was an insecure, unintelligent vagabond and I'm glad he's finally gone. He had nothing going for him. He had no job, no money, and no home training. Good riddance. I'm trying so hard to be supportive but I really just want her to be over it already. I was over it 3 years ago.
