I'm going to College! ^^

Posted by TaintedLogic - April 26th, 2015

Greetings fellow Newgrounders!


First of all, I'd like to apologize for my continued lack of activity these past few months. I know I owe a ton of people a ton of reviews (@DylnMatrix, @LucidShadowDreamer, @LunacyEcho, @Johnfn, and others). Senior spring has been almost non-existent for me. I have a number of big exams coming up which will hopefully help me out a lot once I get to college. Still, in a couple of weeks I should be more free than I've been in a long, long time, and in another month I won't even have class! All that news seems trivial with this next piece of information, though:


I'M GOING TO COLLEGE IN AUGUST!!! :D  Namely, I'll be attending a small liberal arts school with about 1,800 students (all undergraduate) in Lewiston, Maine, a modest former mill city not much larger than my hometown of Wellesley, Mass. It's called Bates College. I was drawn to Bates by its focus on individualized learning and long history of egalitarianism (it was found as an abolitionist institution in 1855). I'm extremely excited about going!


I also recently heard that @Oswald has left the site. I knew Oswald as a fun, good-natured guy who was always so receptive to my criticism of his music, which improved a lot from when I first heard it. Unfortunately, he decided to pursue some other interests of his besides music-making, but I'll always consider him a friend of mine. I also noticed that he barely got any of the recognition he deserved on his news page for his 2.5 years of contributing to NG, so if you knew Oswald (or even if you didn't), I'd encourage you to leave him some words of parting: http://oswald.newgrounds.com/news/post/920534.


Thank you so much for your continued support, Newgrounds, and, as promised, I'll be back with some new music soon! ;D

Well, well, TheDoor6. Lately, it seems like I've only been able to enjoy your haikus XD
I look forward to the time when you get more time to be around! Which is soon :)
And it's great that you're going to college too! Good luck with your new endeavors ;)

Oh, and it's a bit late, but Happy Pico Day-ish!

Thanks LSD! I had no idea you read my haikus. XD Ah, I almost forgot about Pico Day. I'm going to have to do something for that some year...Also, did you submit anything for Ludum Dare? :)

Man, college sounds exciting! I can't wait till I can go (although the senior year work sounds extremely foreboding).

Good luck in all your work and stuff, and congrats on getting into Bates! Sounds like a fun place. Hope you have a great time! :D

Thanks so much for the kind words, LunacyEcho! I wouldn't worry too much about senior year. I kind of just screwed myself over by taking 3 APs. It all depends on the classes you're taking. ;)

well done and congratz

Thanks man! ;D

that's great! I hope you enjoy your time in Maine then :) I've never been over in that area but I hear it's really nice and that there's beautiful scenery

Thanks so much! Nice getting all these surprise comments from people I don't know! ^^ Yeah, I'm looking forward to the scenery but not the weather, if you know what I mean. ;)

Nah, didn't submit anything this time around, or else you'd find it on Newgorunds ;)
I will partake sometime again though!

Ah, well that's too bad! I was looking forward to playing one of your games again. I probably still will...just in a couple of weeks, haha. XD I promise I'll review a crap-ton of your new songs, too! ^^

Congrats on getting in to college and (nearly) finishing your senior year in high school, Andrew!

We all await the day that you have free time again, but as LSD said, at least we have your haikus to read to pass the time haha. They always pop up in the feed as friend activity, so we naturally will read them. I may not have as much free time by the time you come back (I swear we swap schedules or something) since I'll be at Cedar Point during the summer, but I'll definitely be making a better effort to be somewhat more active myself around these parts.

Thanks so much, Matt! :D Yeah, I usually don't check the big general feed, just the interactions, so I forgot that you could see all my haikus without clicking on the thread. Thanks again for all the kind words - you guys have always been so loyal to me. ;') Have fun at Cedar Point! ^^

I am happy for you and hope learn a lot. Good luck!!!

Thank you very much! I'm sure I will. ;D

You did it!!! :D

I...I............I did?! What did I do?!?! Am I in trouble, Johnfn? T_T *starts breathing through paper bag*

Seriously, though, I really appreciate your response, man. ;)

Also happy bday! ^_^

Thanks Johnfn. ;D
