MCAT? Check.

Okie dokey loki, so that thing that I've been studying for over the past year or so, that thing which has distracted me from doing anything else consistently, is finally over.  I've taken the MCAT.

Imagine the final exam for your worst class.  Now, imagine a final exam encompassing all your worst classes throughout your school career.  Imagine that you have only 70 minutes to answer 52 questions about chemistry and physics combined.  Imagine that same scenario for biology and organic chemistry.  Then, imagine having to read seven bizarrely incongruous passages and answer equally incoherent questions about them, where speculation and attentiveness are your only tools.  THEN, imagine having to write TWO ESSAYS, each in only 30 minutes.

Now imagine that all of ONE TEST.

Yeah, that's what the MCAT is.  I showed my brother my notes, and he was all "I'll quiz you!"  After staring for about a minute at the page in perplexed horror, he threw the notebook down and walked away, muttering, "I can't do this."  He's a technical genius, and MY notes were utter gibberish to him.  He couldn't even pronounce "sarcoplasmic reticulum" or "acetylcholine" or "human chorionic gonadotropin" or 75% of the other vocabulary I had been forced to memorize.  Heck, even Firefox doesn't acknowledge those as real words!

*ahem*  But yes.  It's done.  I'm not allowed to tell you anything about what was on that test, on pain of death, apparently.

Anyway, this means I'm going to play lots of Pokemon Black, watch tons of anime, enjoy my upcoming birthday, and then, finally, make an episode for all of you.  I will first distribute it to people in my deviantART fan-group, followed by this blog, and then once I'm satisfied, I'll make it public.  I feel like being evil, for evil has been done to me...and besides, all those people who constantly demand more are seriously grating on me now that I'm all psychotic and freaked out by that test.

I was like a near-death, I walked out feeling as though I should do something to atone for spending eight hours a day studying for that stupid thing.  I've never felt so drained and nervous and manic as I did that dreadful Wednesday.  I've never known such horror.

I may need a therapist once I'm done with all this medical business, because I'm sure I'll be completely bonkers by the end of it.

Wondering whether to level up my Archen or my Herdier first, and whether I should go beat up on some more Audino on Route 7, your truly insane friend,

P.S. Uh....just to clarify, Audino is a Chansey-ish Pokemon which just so happens to dish out some INSANE experience when you fight it in the wild.  It shows up almost immediately, and is pretty darn easy to beat up until it learns Secret Power and Attract.  (I HATE THOSE MOVES...I HATE...I just hate...I am filled with hate, tomato, basil, and baguettes.)  As such, I've taken to walking back and forth in the same spot for many hours, just waiting for the shaky grass....

MegaCon 2011

Hey, guess what?

I got to meet Geoff and Griffon Ramsey at MegaCon.  Awesome sauce!  XD  (Griffon is like my nerd idol or something.  I love Immersion.)

Oh...for those of you who might not know, Geoff plays Grif (the orange one) in Red vs. Blue.

I also spotted some droids running around...

saw Calypso kiss a Predator,

...and enjoyed some architectural stuff because a room packed with 3000 unwashed nerds all at once can only be tolerated for about 30 minutes at a time.

Before I left, though, I was lucky enough to see some awesome costumes!

 I even saw Spiderman get mobbed by cheerleaders as he attempted to escape via bike rickshaw. 

Good times.  Maybe next time, all of us can go?

Anyway, that's it for me.  Good night!

Stuff that has been happening recently:

First off:  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IAN!!!  ^_^  Twenty-five years?  Wow, that's a quarter of a century!  I guess you pretty much count as an adult now.  >_>;  Congrats on surviving this long!!!  XD

Next, man, am I neglecting the internet these days.  So much to do and so little time to pay attention to everything.  Let's see....Chell's Mind is still talking forever, but you knew that.  It'll be out--patience is a virtue--a virtue that will make the episode come out sooner, in fact.  (Somebody please explain that to YouTube....)

Hmm...lemme January I went to Washington D.C. for a week to see my best friend.  (She came back back from school overseas to go to another friend's wedding.)  That was awesome.  Got to hang out with the Washington Monument.  We're old college pals, you see:

Also got to see the Lincoln Memorial and the Botanical Gardens and all kinds of Smithsonian stuff.

Valentine's Day was awesome 'cause I finally had someone to spend it with, too.  I got a big velvet-covered box of chocolates.  O_O  They were so tasty!

Hmm...oh, and Jared and Ian just came down to hang out with me for five days.  It was a blast, 'cause Ian was all fascinated with palm trees and whatnot, and Jared is such a goofball.  We had tons of fun just hanging out and eating my mom's cooking.  (Her food is SO good.)  I cooked breakfast every day, too, which was nice.  ^_^  Hmm...I managed to save Ian and Jared from severe sunburn by making them buy SPF50 sunblock, but Ian got splinters anyway from punching a palm tree...I think they were pretending it was Minecraft or something...Jared made sandstone.  >_>;

Anyway, it was a fun visit and it was really sad to see them go.  Hopefully more of us will be able to get together next time, and maybe some resourceful fans will be able to come visit as well and hang out for a couple of days.  (We wouldn't be able to provide lodging, though.  That would be up to them.)  Kinda like a mini convention, I suppose.  It would be nice to at least meet some of you who live in Georgia or Florida--where Jared and I live, respectively.

So yeah: fun, fun, fun.  I've been slacking on the MCAT studies, though, so I'm trying get back into that now.  I've also finally got a job offer, too, so at last I can make money and finish up on my computer upgrades!  (And get a new LCD for my laptop since that one went kaput. =_=#) 

Anyway, that's about it for me.  Chell's Mind is churning in the background, no worries, but I've definitely been needing this break from YouTube to get other stuff together and do something other than spend all my time on the internet.  I miss you guys, though, and now that my computer is back to normal (Gladys caught a virus before Jared and Ian arrived, and I've only now recovered everything that I need for the next episode) I'll be able to return to business.  Yay!

Gute nacht!
=_= ~*(cyh)*

P.S. Anyone who wants more frequent updates than this should checkout the Facebook thing, even just to read what's going on or catch random awesome things we see or come up with and don't put in our blogs.  The group has been doing pretty well, so I guess it's all good.  ^_^  Hooray for civilized interactions!

See that thing above this post?  Click on it and conform to the internet-approved requirements for popularity in this day and age...or don't.

Please don't try to friend me.  I'm failing at being an antisocial weirdo as it is.

Monday, January 3, 2011


I just checked my email for the first time after avoiding it for about a week and found almost 100 messages from YouTube.

That's not the least bit surprising, though.  (I expect YouTube to accost me with messages pretty much constantly.)  What's surprising--shocking, actually--is that not one of them were rude, obnoxious, mean, or condescending...

I love you guys.  Expect a new episode soon.  ^_^

I do have a trip at the end of January, so if you're super nice and keep this up, you might have some special extras coming, including a new episode...but only if you keep being awesome.

Though, I am sorely tempted to release the new episode exactly one year from the last one...but that's too close to the MCAT and I can't get distracted.  ~_~;  (Contemplates giving the toaster a bath...)  It's bad enough that I now have Civilization V to suck all the time and life out of me.  *facepalm*  Multiplayer is so epic!!!

Anyway, Merry Christmasolstannukwanzaakah and Happy New Year to everyone.  (There...pretty sure I've got everything covered with that one.)  Thanks for all the nice PMs and comments.

=_= ~*(cyh)*

EDIT:  Oh, and CooL stopped by over the break.  Here's the proof...Ian is feeling rather left-out on webcam.  XD  (We just got back from the Orlando.  Yeah.  Crazy hair and feeling gross.  Yay!)

(Here's a better one of Ian.  No idea what I'm doing down in the corner there...taking a picture, apparently.  XP  See the gleam??  That winning smile?!  XD  Yeah, this was loads of fun.)
