Super Mario in Twi

One of the main dialects spoken in Ghana is one called 'Twi.' From what I can tell, this is a Super Mario skit, probably done on Family Guy, with (most of) the dialogue translated into Twi. Apparently there's a whole whack of other ones, but for the purpose of my blog, I'll share this one.

I miss Skyrim... QQ

I set the backlighting to red when it's Dragon Killing Time.
You don't need to tell me how awesome I am. I know.
So it's week 2 into the semester and I started to miss my beloved Skyrim before I even went back to school. I knew it would turn out like this... and I know, in my heart, it's for the best that I'm not playing Skyrim while in school, but my heart aches for it.

It's really awkward.

It's not that I have an addiction to it or anything. Actually, I don't get really 'addicted' to video games. It shows in the fact that I don't think about playing while at home, alone, studying. But I just feel that during those 3 weeks of my break, we built something special between us, my character and I. We killed so many dragons together. The last battle we had before school was that I killed 2 giants and a mammoth, single-handedly...

I was level 31.


At least at school I get some geeking in. I'm meeting with some friends later to play MTG (Magic: The Gathering) and I bring my 3DS to school and chip away at LoZ: Ocarina of Time. I'm more excited about StreetPass and collecting puzzle pieces and doing that little adventure game, Find Mii. Simple pleasures... simple pleasures. =P

And in my defense, it's a quick fix before getting back to business. Nya!

My crafts are beginning to get attention!

Last week, I randomly met someone affiliated with a company that organizes LAN gaming events (LAN = Local Area Network). He explained to me that he wants his company to branch out, that he noticed my crafts, and thought he might want to help me out with promoting and selling it. So we met up a few days later to discuss ideas and show my crafts up close.

I think it went well. From what it sounds like, the company would be willing to give me some space to show off my wares. I would just give them a percentage of the item sales.

This is incredibly exciting for me. I've been doing these crafts first because I was bored, but eventually because I loved being creative and figuring out new and exciting ideas. I think it's awesome that someone is willing to give me the opportunity to see where this will go. To be honest, this is what I wanted to eventually be with these crafts. So... I'll keep you posted on how this goes! If it's not successful, it was a shot.

Wish me luck! <3
