Of Candy Kits and Computers

Been fairly busy this month. I finally saved up enough money to buy my computer parts for my new PC, I'll leave the specs down at the bottom. I didn't buy everything though. I still need a new monitor, keyboard and mouse but those can be bought after awhile...I just wanted to get the basic stuff I needed as this computer is just...a clunker. I don't know how it's still running honestly.

Besides that I made a video about some Japanese candy kits I got...Poppin' Cookin' ones. I've always wanted to try them but import fees were insane...well now I can try them because my local Asian market got a bunch of them in! Yay :3

Let's see...oh and I'll have to hold off on making those kits for a month or two...I'm currently on a strict elimination diet which is NOT fun.

Other then that I've been working on taking pictures of my game collection as it stands now and trying to make progress with my new game room. It's slow going. I've really only carried stuff from my bedroom into the game room honestly...I need to do a lot to that room but other things keep getting in the way.

Things to do for game room:

- Paint
- Figure out shelving
- Get light fixtures
- Put plugin covers on
- Figure out how to block the sun
- Figure out heating/cooling
- Get a TV
- Get a comfortable chair
- Start moving games/consoles in

All of these things need to be done in the order they are on the list. Like, I have to have my shelves built before I put my games on them, and I need the room heated because it gets cold in there and I don't want my games in a cold room...and I also need to figure out how to make that horrible smell go away...the paint on the walls now stinks to high heaven...I'm hoping a new layer of different paint will get rid of the stink.

Anyways enough of that, here's the video of the kits and my PC specs.

PC Part Picker List:

Hope you enjoy it.

All the stuff I got for Christmas/Hanukkah

Finally got around to uploading those here they are.

Not much to say on this other then it's just videos showing off all the stuff I bought for myself and stuff given to me during the holidays...pretty damn late but eh. I'm lazy like that!

Working out the backlog

I have four more videos to show off, two I'm going to show off right now. The other two are actually one but I had to split it up because it was a long video. These two were shot before Christmas.

First up is my annual Bath and Body Works haul video...I always go to B&BW before Christmas, so many lovely scents.

Second up is a Goodwill haul video, they had a few holiday related items I wanted to show off. It was also the last thrift store haul of 2016.

I hope you enjoy them. I plan on uploading the other two videos soon if I can get Youtube to work with me on this...stupid videos.

Happy New Years

So another year has passed. One of the worst in my mind. Second only to the year I turned thirteen. That was the worst year. Hopefully 2017 will be better but with Trump in office...I have my doubts. Maybe celebrities will stop dying by the handful...

Anyways like last year I'm going to take a shot at making resolutions...maybe I'll stick to them?

Last years resolutions were this:

1. Eat healthier/lose weight
2. Exercise
3. Learn to drive
4. Work on getting GED
5. Learn how to "adult"

And I did none of them. I did actually make some slight progress on the exercise by buying a I can ride to the store or just around the lake...easier then walking. And because of my fear of driving...I think it might be the only way I'm going to get out of the house anytime soon.

So my resolutions for this new year? I'm going to have two different category's...important and not important.


1. Try to go on elimination diet to figure out what makes me sick (this means at least 2 months)
2. Ride my bike (probably going to wait till Spring at least...too cold otherwise)
3. GET A NEW COMPUTER (it's important enough to me damn it)
4. Learn how to "adult" (there's a group for Autistic people to learn life skills...I think I'm going to try my hand at joining them for this new year)

I'm going to give up on the GED and driving shit...I have 0 interest in that and I'm just not ready for it. I need to go on an elimination diet (literally eliminating EVERYTHING I eat and slowly adding them back in one by one till I figure out what makes me sick.) because I get horrible stomach pain after I eat. I need a new computer because the one I'm using is just not cutting it, it's super old and I can't play games on it. I'm a bit hopeful about the group...learning life skills is something I need to do.

Not important (but important enough that I want to try to do them):

1. Set up a dedicated retro gaming area and try to spend a few hours a week playing old games (I don't play my games and this is a bit annoying because I love the games so much!)
2. Invest in some good shelves for my collections (DVDs and games)
3. Put my crappy games into storage
4. Start selling on eBay (At least 1 game a week!)
5. Possibly get some UGCs or at least end labels for N64 carts

I've totally run out of room in my bedroom (where I keep all of my games and other collections) so I need more room. Right now my dad is turning my unused porch into an enclosed area I can use for stuff like my games and what not. I'm going to turn that room into a game room for my older games. So I'll have a comfortable place to sit down for a few hours and play. That will free up more space in my bedroom for storing my DVDs and such. And if I put my crappy games I never play and don't want to display into storage...that frees up more room for games! I really need to sell games on eBay to fund my collection this summer...hunting at yard sales and so on. And it would help pay for a new PC. The UGCs/end labels would just be if I have some extra money that I want to treat myself to something...I don't expect to get them this year.

It's pretty hard to stick to resolutions when you have no inner drive or...something. Stuff that normal people have to push them to complete goals and so on...I don't have that. I've never had that...kind of annoying.

Anyways I have two videos for you guys.

This was a haul from World Market.

And this was a haul from Daiso.

They're both in the shorter style, so hopefully people will watch them all the way through...

And A Merry Christmas To All!

Since I'm sitting on quite a few videos now, here's another video. This is my last "long" styled one...the rest are going to be around 10 I can see if people enjoy that more or not. I'm thinking you will because I'll be less likely to ramble off or start ranting.

This is a mix of Wal-Mart, Dollar Tree and Cyber Monday items (shows you how long ago I shot this.). Oh and Loot Crate did finally send the Invader crate out...AFTER I filmed this lol...

And I meant to upload this before it hit 12...but I fell asleep.

My Hanukkah decorations...what few of them I have. This was shot on the first night of course...which is why I wanted to post it earlier lol. Happy second night of Hanukkah everyone, and a Merry Christmas to everyone else.

Happy Hanukkah!

Now here's some Christmas themed hauls! lol...ah. I celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah so I'm always looking out for Hanukkah themed items but sadly there is just NOTHING out there for us. The tiny amount of decorations that some stores have is laughable...usually an endcap of an aisle...IF that. It's a sad thing.

Anyways yes...I am going to post Christmas hauls on Hanukkah...only because there is nothing that I could find out there Hanukkah related.

Oh, I think I managed to figure out why my uploads were messing up...they were to long! So I'm going to make shorter videos...I also think that might keep people entertained more? Because the videos won't just drag on and I made multiple videos yesterday (about 4!), so I have a ton of videos to show off lol.

In this video I show off the only Hanukkah item I've found this year...

This one is just a typical Wal-Mart haul with some thrift store items as well.

The First Christmas Haul of 2016

So I've been lax on my uploading. My health hasn't been all that great so my mood is kinda in the gutter right now. Hell I haven't even decorated for Christmas besides putting up an advent calendar and some gel clings. I need to get on top of it but...meh? I wish I could jumpstart my mood but I have no idea how to do that.

Anyways I wanted to give you guys two videos since I haven't been posting that much. My first haul of the "season" and my big Target haul.

One other thing...Youtube (or maybe my phone?) has been acting up for me. My latest haul video (not these...these ones are older ones I've been sitting on) wouldn't upload through the Youtube app, I had to reshoot it because I thought the video was corrupted (and the lighting was AWFUL) but turns out something was just wrong with the app or my phone. I had to go back to the old way of uploading...through my Drive. Which takes forever! I have to upload it there, then download it, then re-upload it onto Youtube. That takes hours...then I have to edit it on Youtube...and finally my video is done.

This means less videos...because it just takes way to long to upload and do all of that. But I guess it's fine since I don't make many videos after Christmas...still what a pain. And Youtube offers no help...I can't even contact them, I have to ask help from the Youtube Community...meaning users. Which is BS. But what can you do? Google freaking owns half the god damned world by now...
