Nostalgic

Today, something came over me to go check the Poptropica Help Blog chatroom. For what reason? I’m not sure myself, but I found my old middle school asylum dead, moved & hardly recognizable. I remember being so into WordPress, blogging, all things online and expressing myself through a QWERTY keyboard. But time really is crazy, and it scares me how easy it is for our brains to dispose what once was everything to us.

Since putting in my two weeks in the Poptropica WordPress universe under the logic of “I’m about to be in high school and I’m getting too old,” I’ve took up other ways of conveying a persona. Twitter became my favorite app, I started writing poetry and I even made a mixtape as a Soundcloud rapper. I made new online friends, as it was probably inevitable, and pushed my old interests to the back of my mind. I now like to go to the gym, run track, read, write (still), paint and vlog from time to time.

But now being a senior in high school with a semester left until I venture into adulthood, I’m nostalgic. I noticed more and more a decline of interest in drawing, online gaming, the internet, and everything else I occupied my time with in my tween years. It’s all apart of growth, sure, but I feel like once I left this behind, I left a part of me behind. A part of me that paved way for me right now. A part of me that right now I wish was still familiar. I have the same passion and creativity that manifests themselves in other forms, but I lack the affinity of what I had potential in — all because I was bored and impulsively decided that I was too old and it was time for me to change.

I could blame my fear of labels, being predictable and stagnant until veins pop out my neck, but that only proves my point that I did this for the potential of how others could view me instead of the potential of a new version of myself. I see there are authors in this blog that are now in college, I see Hijuyo is the only author I recognize over at PHB, and I see that my bio here has not been updated since I was 12. I’m now 17, going to be 18 in April.

I grew up online, and purposely left a gap that I feel is missing but is filled with real life experience and introspection. Instead of being up on chatrooms at 3 in the morning, I talk to myself and reflect (or tweet). And truly, I’ll never know how my teenage years would’ve panned out had I stayed in this universe. I sacrificed growing and bartering information with those my age through the magic of the internet to being the only one surrounded by the stubborn. It wasn’t worth it, but I feel that I said enough and there is nothing I can do to change time and it’s honestly too late.

In short, I’m thankful for this community for, not being apart, but for BEING my tweenage years when I was asocial, chubby and, regretfully, had a liking for One Direction. I’m not MonkeyTacoz anymore, and the real world sucks. Being on the laptop all day is much, much better. It’s nice to see authors keeping this blog alive. I love to see growth and people my age being creative and unapologetically themselves (one thing I wish I was consistent at). Not everyone in the world will or can understand us, so don’t learn to hate what you love to do. Happy new years, everyone. 🙂

Hi people! Sorry for the random video but I just thought that was funny and I wanted to post it. *-*

Anyhoo, I want you guys to know that i’m NOT dead. You could actually find me on DigiTalk, PHC, Tumblr and everything.

But also, for those that still find fun playing Poptropica, I made a new blog, guys. :>

It’s called LegitPop. And all it really has resource-wise is a S.O.S. Guide, lol. But so far I’m dedicated to it and I hope that stays. 😮

bye y’alls

What’s Thunders’ Choice?
Thunders’ Choice is a yearly-updated playlist showcasing the Where Thunder Roars blog members’ favorite 1 – 7 songs. It starts as a listing, in which the members comment on the listings’ post telling their favorite songs at the end of the year which could also contain swearing and doesn’t have to be released in 2011. After the Listing is finished January 5th, the playlist premieres sometime around or before January 10th. And time does indeed fly, so get commenting!

The always late,

MT.

With Love #1

I don’t know if I should finish this or not ~

She asked me to dance, exposing her wrist bent over so I could take her hand and spin her across the dancefloor. It was definitely dark, like a disco. I felt as if everyone was looking at us as if they were waiting for this to happen. Blushing, I took her palm and twirled her. As she was finished, I placed my hand on her waist and kissed her.

I woke up from some recurring dream I had, sometime in early December. It’s about one of my closest friends Janani, but I don’t like her like that and I never did before – at least I don’t think I do. I thought hard about why these images would be appearing in my unconscious mind. My cat, Dizz, taunts me about it. Yeah, a talking cat, but I’m not focusing on that hocus pocus. There I fell back in my unmade bed and just thought to myself.

Sorry 4 The Absences

Unfortunately due to my obvious absences, I have missed a lot. And you guys know that I love this community. I’m blessed to have this new laptop in my hands for Christmas, and I look forward to much more memories with you all. :3

Yay.

Once again.

Long time no see, it’s your old pal, MT. For a while, my computer had a virus, so I don’t go on it that much. It doesn’t really affect the computer, and hopefully it doesn’t anytime soon, but I’m still restricting my limits.

These are my crazy ideas to be done soon:

  1. Create a Halloween-themed PWH episode, then put it on hiatus.
  2. Premiere “Party Hard”.
  3. Pitch “Party Hard” to MTV.
  4. USE MY PHONE LESS SO I COULD DRAW GOOD AGAIN UGH
  5. Find a new gravatar, lol.

Party Hard is generally about a 13 year-old naive, skateboarding womanizer by the name of Evan Harkuza that challenges his everyday problems accompanied by his fierce feline, Disastrous.

I hope I could start Season One in at least November, but I’m still indecisive about to host it on WordPress or Tumblr. :/

Also, what could I be for Halloween? lol.

Alright, thanks for reading, guys.
