Hm. Today is my 9 year anniversary with Livejournal. My most recent post on here was the 25th of November, last year. I guess I'll update you. Essentially, Ryan and I have been dating 4 years. I graduated college, after starting in 2005 and dropping out twice (and almost failing out this semester). I have a tumblr that I mostly post to (bethosaurus.tumblr.com) or you can find me on Facebook at Bethosaurus Barrydactyl. I'm looking for jobs, and my plans in my free time are to reread statements and metaquotes from the very beginning.

Also to continue Rosetta Stone Dutch (possibly start over as it's been two months and I forgot most of what I learned?) and refresh my French.

And try to get published (HELP ON THAT?!)

Desert Bus for Hope is the internet’s oldest and most successful charity gaming marathon.

Created in 2007 by internet sketch comedy group LoadingReadyRun, since its inception, Desert Bus for Hope has grown from an event broadcast from a living room to a professionally organized fundraiser that has inspired hundreds of people all over the world to start their own gaming marathons. It takes an organizing committee of 12 people to plan Desert Bus for Hope, and a further 10 to 15 dedicated volunteers once the event begins.

Desert Bus for Hope is known for being one of the most participatory charity gaming marathons. Through the Desert Bus Craft-Along, people from all over the world help us raise money by donating incredible handmade art and goods for auction. Viewers can talk with the Desert Bus crew via live chat, ask questions, submit challenges and make requests so everyone watching can help decide what will happen next.

Desert Bus is a great example of what happens when a huge community of people from all over the world – organizers, volunteers, crafters and viewers – come together to achieve a singular goal. Since 2007 Desert Bus for Hope has raised more than $400,000 for Child’s Play.

So How does Desert Bus for Hope work?

Desert Bus is actually a mini-game from the never-released Sega CD game Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors. In it a player controls a virtual bus that drives an eight-hour-long strip of highway between Tucson, Arizona, and Las Vegas, Nevada, on an endless loop. The difficulty is that the bus lists slightly to the right and must be constantly corrected or it will crash. It’s the worst video game ever made, and we play it for as long as donations come in. In order to maximize the pain and suffering for the Desert Bus team, we have five drivers who must play Desert Bus for 24 hours at a time. In order to keep things interesting for our viewers we have live and silent auctions, celebrity guests and a lot of silliness.


go donate!

Also, fun fact - I only should have class Tuesday through Thursday so Ryan and I have been talking. Hopefully I'll stay with him over Christmas break and bring Izzy with to introduce her and Emcee to each other, and get them used to each other. I'll commute 3 days a week and stay at my apartment T-R, and then stay with him Thursday night through Monday night. I'd pay for the gas and cat food and litter, since I'd be eating his food for free. It would help him get used to the idea of living with me after I graduate, and I'd be a lot less needy because I'd get to see him 4 nights a week.

It actually is a really good situation for everyone involved. He said he thinks he's okay with it, and I think he's just worried about the Izzy/Emcee situation.

I went to see my counselor yesterday. I thought I had 18 credit hours left till I graduated, and he updated my file because it hadn't been updated - I only have 12 credit hours. :D

What the fresh heck is wrong with me, I actually am reading a Slenderman blog in which I go "Awww, Slendy's such a sweetheart!"

Oh my god I'm watching "Grilled Cheesus" and I thought I'd lose it when Kurt sang, and I didn't. No. I lost it when Sue and Jean talked about God.
