2 Years and Canada Day Party Invite!

Me: Guess who turned 2 years old on June 26th?! *bounces around*
You guys: Um, a baby?
Me: Nope! *puts on party hat and gives more party hats to You Guys*
You guys: *holds party hat distastefully* Your pet?
Me: I don't have a pet! *pulls out fireworks*
You guys: *backs away from the fireworks* I don't know. Who turned 2 years old?
Me: ME!!! *lights match and uses it on fireworks*
You guys: AHHHH!!! *runs away*
Fireworks: BOOM POW BAM BOOOOM!

Ah, another crazy intro. XD

But anyway! That's right, I turned 2 years old on AJ! ^.^

2 years ago on June 26th, I started an adventure of a lifetime. I remember being in awe over the graphics and everything about it. I remember thinking all those animals saying things in the welcoming part of making an account were real. I remember wanting Peck to shut up when I was making my den for the first time. XD

I remember making friends for the first time. I remember playing Overflow and how it was my first game I ever played. I remember buying a hamster and naming it. I remember having a panda and a seal at the beginning and then switching my animals all the time.

I remember my journey into the AJ blogging world. I remember meeting Doomypanda and how I was in awe that she was so nice to me even when I was a kooky, random, anonymous on her blog and how I asked question after question and she answered them all. I remember deciding that I would want to blog about AJ. I remember how happy I was when my parents said yes. I remember that I was so happy that I had commenters from other blogs.

I remember when I had my first AJ party. I remember how much fun I had and that I knew I should do more parties. I remember when I got my first fan art and how excited I was that someone actually took the time to draw me even though I was the smallest blogger out there. I remember meeting all my friends that I have today. I remember meeting lots of them at one of Swirl's parties.

I remember when I started writing Jamaasian High. I remember how I was so happy I was getting positive feedback on it because I was a little scared to let others read my story.

I remember lots of good times with my friends. I remember how much laughter we had and still have today.

I remember when some friends quit this year.

All these memories, good and bad. Amazing and depressing. All these memories came from an online game named Animal Jam. A game meant for way younger players than myself. I just can't get over how many memories came from this game. Some people say online relationships aren't real. Well, I say they are pretty real to me.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my AJ life.

Some of my many, many memories:

My first ever animal!

Tomorrow is a special day! ^.^
 
TOMORROW IS CANADA DAY!!! WOO!!!
 
This year is even more special because it is Canada's 150th birthday!
 
To celebrate, I will be having a Canada Day party. ;)
 
 

Sorry that it's such short notice! Also, if you're wondering if you can come even if you aren't Canadian: ANYONE can come! :D
 
Be sure to dress in red and white! I hope to see everyone there!
 
Have an amazzzzing day and...
 
Jam on!

Blog Launch for The Steadfast Pen and an Interview!

Helloooo and gooooood afternoon, people of Jamaa. :P

Today, I have a very special guest! On Friday, my brother, Josiah (On AJ, he goes by Dreadwisp), launched his very own blog! And, just to help him launch it, I am interviewing him about videogames, since this blog revolves around a game. ^-^


Let's hear it for Josiah as he takes the stage!


Lost: What is your favorite videogame franchise?


Josiah: Hmm... it's a toss-up between the Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Kirby franchises. But I think I'd have to pick Zelda, because I love fantasy and epic quests, which the series abounds in. It's a tough pick, though!


Lost: What is usually your favorite part about videogames?


Josiah: I think I really enjoy a game when I can become immersed in its virtual world and just enjoy myself. I like to have my brain challenged with puzzles and dungeons; I thoroughly enjoy creative plots and unique characters; I love music that appeals to me. But if I can't get immersed into the game, it's just not the same.


Lost: What are your thoughts on Animal Jam?


Josiah: It's a game about animals, where they jam. 'Nuff said.
 
Okay, I'm just joking. XD It's actually a pretty fun game! Would I say it's my favorite MMOG? No, not really; LEGO Universe and Club Penguin were my favorite MMOGs. But it's still a great game to play. I enjoy the fact that non-members (such as myself) can get a decent amount of items. That includes items obtained at parties (which is better than what CP did in their last year or two).

Now, I prefer games with a storyline 90% of the time. And while AJ doesn't have a full-blown plot, it does have quests you can do that give a story, which is something I appreciate. I could list other things, but suffice it to say that I'd consider buying a membership for this game.

 

Lost: If you had to live in a videogame world, which one would you choose?


Josiah: One word: HYRULE! So it seems to often be targeted by demon warlords, stormed by hordes of Bokoblins and other foul creatures, and has its princess kidnapped more times than I can count. But when it's not, it's an awesome medieval land. And having to fight off monsters wouldn't be so bad now and then, would it? XD


If I had to pick a specific place in Hyrule, I would pick Skyloft from Skyward Sword, Kakariko Village from A Link Between Worlds, or Windfall Island from The Wind Waker (even though it's technically not IN Hyrule).


Lost: Which videogame weapon/item appeals to you most?


Josiah: Snake's cardboard box from Super Smash Bros. Brawl!

No, not really. :P I'd quickly pick the Master Sword (can you tell that I like Zelda games?). I mean, who wouldn't want to wield an awesmazing weapon like that? Other weapons would be Kirby's hammer ability, Mario's cat ability, a color gun from LEGO City Undercover, Ronin's Obsidian Glaive from LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin . . . I think I'll stop there before I go too crazy. XD


Lost: In your opinion, what is the best thing in Animal Jam?

 
Josiah: The best thing is that I get to play with you and Koolest! It's fun when we get to hang out and be crazy and do stuff together. I'm sure I'm probably one of the worst AJ players there is, but at least that makes you two laugh. Plus, we don't have very man MMOGs we can play together, so it's a good thing we have AJ. XD


Lost: Which videogame character do you find the funniest?


Josiah: Frank Honey (from LEGO City Undercover) is probably my favorite funny character. He's just so goofy, and his lack of intelligence makes him quite amusing. For example, take this little conversation from the game.

Frank: "Chase! My horse will only go in reverse and doesn't have a head!"

Chase: "Frank...that's because your riding it backwards."

Frank: "Oh! That would explain why he didn't like that apple I fed him."

That's just one of his many humorous lines of dialogue. Two other funny characters are Undertale's very own Skelebros, Sans and Papyrus. They're just plain awesome. Sans's puns crack me up, and Papyrus is funny even though he's not intending to be.

 
Lost: Which videogame character is most like you? Why?


Josiah: Link, because he's the strong, silent type. XD Nah, I'd probably be more like Chase McCain from LCU, because he's smart most of the time, he sometimes says things that really aren't that smart, and he can be quite funny. Just like me! I really have no idea who else I would pick.

 

Lost: You have a chance to meet a videogame character. Who would you want to meet?
 
 
Josiah: That's an interesting question. I don't exactly have one answer, but I would like to meet Link (provided he could talk), Toriel from Undertale, Chase, Frank . . . man, my mind just doesn't want to leave a few specific games. :P
 
 
Lost: What was the hardest videogame you have ever played and why?


Josiah: Geometry Dash is one of the hardest games I've played. I've died so many times on the easiest levels! The reason why this game is so hard is because you have to complete each course without dying. If you do, you are sent right back to the start, because there are no checkpoints. Eventually, I find that if I die enough times in a level, I start making rookie mistakes. The game revolves around perfect timing, often according to the beat of the music playing. Figuring that timing can take many tries.
 
 
Lost: What videogame has jumpscared you the most?


Josiah: I believe Spooky's Jumpscare Mansion has gotten me the most times. The funny thing is, I haven't been jumpscared by anything actually scary. It's cardboard cut-outs of cupcakes and pumpkins that get me! You may be laughing, but the atmosphere of the game is very unsettling. It puts me on edge, making me jump even when it's just a little, smiley piece of food popping out of the wall.



Lost: What was the first videogame you have ever played that you can remember?

 

Josiah: I don't remember the very first game I played. It probably was a PS2 game. I do, however, playing LEGO Star Wars 2 on PS2 as one of my first games. I was very impressed by it and had lot of fun playing. But the first game that I owned and really enjoyed was Yoshi's Island for the GameBoy. This game introduced me to the Mario franchise, and, while it was difficult at the time, I had an absolute blast playing it. The rest, you could say, is history.

 

Lost: Who's your favorite videogame villain? Why?

 
Josiah: Fawful from the Mario & Luigi series is easily one of my favorite villains. What I find so appealing about the little guy is his use of Engrish, which is basically really bad use of English when you're using it as a second language, and his food analogies. He says at one point that something is "easy as bread sandwiches." He also tends to say things like "I have chortles" and "I HAVE FURY!" His quirky nature quickly ranked him as one of my favorite villains.

 
Lost: Bonus question! What AJ team (Team Zios and Team Mira) were you on for this year's VidCon and why?
 
 
Josiah: Team Zios for the win! Because, ya know, Zios looks cool, and Aparri seems to be the Markiplier of AJ YouTube channels. That's basically my only reasoning. XD

Thank you so much, Josiah! That was a lot of fun!

If you guys enjoyed this interview, I'm sure you'll love my brother's blog. Feel free to stop by The Steadfast Pen by clicking here! ;D

Have an amazing rest of your day and...

Jam on!

Purplestarclub and Penguin55544 Fan Art!

Me: Whaaaaaat's up, everybody?!
You guys: Erm, why are you back again today?
Me: Because! I have arts to show you!
You guys: 'Arts?' What is that?
Me: Arts is... arts!
You guys: *face palm*

Well, there's my weird intro. XD

But yeah, this is my second post today. (If you wanna see my other post that I did today, just scroll down.) I just wanted to show you some fan art that I have drawn really recently.

 
 
I drew chibi Purple! ^.^ She always draws stuff for other people, I just felt like I needed to give her something back. ;)
 
I hope you enjoy, Purple!! ^-^
 
And my other piece of fan art that I have drawn is...
 


Here you go, Penguin! ^.^

After our conversation on Sunday, I just felt like I should draw you. I hope it's alright that I drew you in your wolf's outfit. (Since you mentioned that it's kind of your main look now.)

Hope you enjoy!!

I hope you all liked this art. You may or may not see more like this... ;)

Also! Just a quick note...

A year ago, I asked for people to request art. I drew SOME art that got requested but then, I slowly forgot to do the other ones...

I thought I would draw them slowly and get them done over time but I just couldn't get into it. I guess I realized I don't like drawing certain things. I like drawing things that I feel like drawing.

I feel SUPER bad for saying this but I am going to have to cancel these requests.

I have been feeling pretty stressed lately. This has bothered me since last year. I am so deeply sorry. :( I feel so awful for doing this. But I think this will help clear some stress.

SO sorry to:

Ja
Pob
Swirl
Gracie
and Kraft
 
Maybe I will draw them in the future. Maybe I won't. Either way, I just want to say sorry again. :(
 
Have an amazing day and...
 
Jam on!

Summer Splash Party!

EEEEE, THANKS CAT!!
Hey, guys! ^.^

Today's post is gonna be about my Summer Splash Party that I had yesterday evening!

It was a lot of fun! I took some pictures so we could always remember this fun time. :D
 

Just at the beginning of the party. We're just chilling and talking. (Ja came before the actual start of the party! :O XD)

Next, I held a CRAZZZZZY fashion show. I took some pictures of some of the themes. XD
 
 
This was for the theme "crazy cake exploding!"
 

 
Look at all of these amazing outfits for the theme "human food." XD
 

Look at all the beautiful walruses! XD

GASP! DOPEY CAN TALK! :o

This was for the random fairy tale theme, Snow White's dwarves. Grump apparently is part egg. XD


Group shot for Cat so she could make that AMAZING edit that I showed before!
 

Another group shot for fun! ^.^
