-Hey punks

-It’s time for a giveaway!!!

To celebrate the new animal crossing, and all my new followers, I’m having an Animal Crossing: New Leaf + Nintendo 3DS giveaway!!

This means one copy of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and one Black Nintendo 3DS (Not a 3DS XL, Charger and Stylus included of course).

Rules are as follow:

  • This giveaway is only for my followers. New or old, I do not care. 
  • You may reblog as many times as you want.
  • Likes don’t count.
  • Giveaway blogs are not allowed, sideblogs are fine, as long as you actually use them ^-^
  • This giveaway isn’t associated with Tumblr (including, without limitation, that it isn’t administered, sponsored, or endorsed by Tumblr), and each person participating is giving information to me, and not Tumblr.
  • Contest is only available to those in America and Canada

The winner will be picked by a random number generator on June 15th. I will send the winner an ask (and if its a sideblog ill ask what their mainblog is), and if they dont respond within 48 hours i’ll pick a new winner.

Importantly: THE WINNER IS CHOSEN RANDOMLY. No amount of bribing me in my askbox is going to make you win. Please stop doing that, it’s making me feel pity and I don’t like that.

Good luck!

Awesomeness subsides?

If anyone has noticed, I haven’t posted in a long time.

This is due to the fact that there seems to be no one reading them. *cue sobbing* Yes, I’ve still been getting followers at a steady rate (whose blogs I’m failing to check, sorry) but I feel that the initial tumblr madness has left us.

So, before I completely quit my tumblr life, if anyone out there is still reading this, (aliens, I’m counting on you), feel free to put in any final submissions you want to see.

or just tell me you still read my posts.

TAKE TIME TO WRITE YOUR OWN ARTICLE, OR ASK ME TO PUT IN MY BEST WORK.

Live strong and stay awesome.

When you get that last piece of popsicle off the stick without dropping it
Unhappy childhood memories include snapping rocket pops and plopping ice cream scoops. Why must these delectable desserts desert us at the worse moments?
That’s why our popsicle finishes are so awesome. Just one smooth mouthful and there’s nothing left to hold. Then again, the art of popsicle eating is not so easily mastered. 
No sticky drips, ice avalanches, or falling chocolate flakes.
Bonus points for not getting a brain freeze!
AWESOME!

Looking at al  the hair on the floor after a haircut
It’s just so satisfying to look down at the carpet of hair covering the salon floor and think to yourself “Man, I must be bald now.” Getting long hair layered? Yep, all that just came off your head.
Of course, the even better feeling is when you notice a big hair haystack clinging onto your slippery nylon apron and then you just flick your fingers underneath it so it slides down with a perfect staccato.
AWESOME!

Letting loose
No, my recent tumblr disappearance is not attributed to underground explorations or shark attacks. It was something much more worse. 
During these past two weeks, the only thing to do was to slave away at summatives and exams. Yes, yes, it’s a hard student life.
But now school’s out and the weight is lifted!
You know what I mean. Sometimes, you get caught under a ginormous anvil of stress and it’s not going to budge. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming…
And you’ll be awarded with a gasp of fresh air like no other! No more exams, due dates, or assignment deadlines! All of a sudden you are a drifting feather, following the winds of the east to the ends of the world.
Yep, you’ve got no chains and it feels gooooood.
AWESOME!

Backseat windows that go all the way down.
Our old family car was a Ford Taurus station wagon. I loved the car, but we had no air conditioning, ugly seats and bad acoustics. Moreover, we had those wretched windows.
You know what I’m talking about. Automobile makers, you’ve got to step up your game. None of this half-way, quarter-way, all-the-way-but-an-inch business. We won’t have it. 
Tried dangling your arm out a window that stops short? Yep, can’t swag like the front seat crew cause you’ll be having cut-off circulation and cold, blue hands. And a young child like me will have only the tops of our heads ruffled by the wind. Not fun.
Backseat windows that go all the way down make life a bit more sweeter. Time to grab your hair in the wind like a supermodel or fix that bout of car nausea!
AWESOME!

Playing with a baby and not having to change its diaper
Babies are bundles of joy. They play, they laugh, they grow, and lets you remember how you were just like that, some hundred years ago. You just make faces, do baby-talk voices, and fly your hand around like an airplane. They laugh and giggle and you’re suddenly a world class entertainer. 
But as any other human, their digestive systems needs to be taken care of, and you’re the one to do it.
Unless you’re just a visiting family member, seeking only photos and laughs.
Now, observe with feigned interest as they do the nether region sniff and facial observation, but when they say “Looks like someone needs their diaper changed!”, that’s your cue to slink away into the bathroom.
Ten minutes later, you can casually show up and ask “Hey, can I play with the baby again?”
AWESOME!

Getting the chocolate you want from the assorted box
My family has a dessert policy.
Upon the countertop, stands a box of gorgeous chocolaty delicacies. Every night, each member of the family is allowed one piece. Uh huh, just one.
This is where the problem comes in. Should you eat your favourite one first, or save for later?  Which one do you like?
Do you like the thick fudgy ones that get stuck in your teeth like brown-sugar fillings? Do you prefer those squares with the dry flaky white stuff in them? Do you hunt ruthlessly for the one chocolate truffle, get your Vitamin C with orange cream, or just pop the lid off and swipe the rectangle hunk of plain milk chocolate sitting in the middle?
Whatever you like, it a wonderful moment when you take the chocolate you want from the new box. Unless you lose the little index page, forcing you to take the risk of taking those maraschino cherry ones. Yikes!

Surprise two-ply
We all hate those big toilet paper wheels in the public washrooms.  Yeah, the huge rolls look inviting, but the paper’s a thin, translucent one-ply that scrapes at your nether regions.
Yes, you have to stick your hand up there and fish around a bit to find a loose end, and then give it an even, gentle tug just so to prevent it from ripping into bits. Not fun.
Now once it a while, our local mall or school might splurge on a little bathroom luxury. Just one extra layer of wood pulp brings us all the feeling of home. Charmin ultra soft? Looks like sanctuary has been found.
AWESOME!

When you don’t want to pull out cash and you find a gift card
Some may argue that gift cards lack the sentimental personal value of a handpicked present, but they have their pros as well.
Now lets envision this.
It’s a Monday morning and you’ve got to get your coffee fix. Groggily, you pull into your local Tim Hortons drive thru, and BAM, you realize you have no cash. Whipping out the bank card is pathetic, and backing up is out of question.
Within the depths of your purse, there happens to be a gift card from your previous birthday. One swipe, and you’re out!
AWESOME!
The death of Picnik has lead to a lame polaroid frame for captions. Pardon my lack of ability to utilize photoshop.
