Hello everyone, it’s that time again where the great Nior comes to make you some company! So how are you doing this week? I’ve been nervous, my entrance exams are less than two months away, and the pressure is starting to get to me. This is obviously important so I can’t afford to mess it up. But let’s not talk about that for now.So I got into Guilty Gear once again. I was already playing Accent Core on the PSP like crazy for the past two weeks, but now I grabbed me a copy of Revelator, two new controllers for the PS3 (last one short-circuited) and I’m having a blast playing it with my brother.

So we reunite at school, get our materials and start working. We are almost done with it, all that’s left is to run energy through the system.

The teacher scolded me so hard! The wire frigging melted and I’m pretty sure it is still glued to the gym’s floor to this day! CHAOS!

So the next time we did the experiment, we used small batteries. I also was not allowed to be unsupervised inside the chem lab anymore. I wonder why. So ye...

Now go on! Tell me about you fun schooltimes! But if you don’t wanna talk about that here are some other topics:

  • What’s the food that you just can’t get enough of?
  • Favorite comedian or comedy movie?
  • Most hated video game level?
  • Space Car or Space Bike?
  • For my fighting game fans out there, how do you deal with thumb pain? I could use some help here.
