Backing up my old songs...

2018-01-29 15:56:09 by Bertn1991

I've been digging through the Bertn Vault to gather all of my songs that still exist and organize them in one place. The earliest surviving music goes all the way back to 2007! They're quite terrible and sloppily written, but so special to me. I'd hate to lose them. Maybe as a joke I'll upload one of my mastapieces from '07.


What the heck is this? It was literally 7°F less than a week ago, which I think is the coldest it's ever been in Tuscaloosa in my lifetime. Dumb Alabama weather.


Legend of the Mysterious 247-Page Document

2018-01-13 00:04:23 by Bertn1991

I was in the library at school, waiting for this woman to finish printing her stupendously long document. It's free to print stuff at my school, but they ask that you be courteous and only print documents under 10 pages. Sounds reasonable to me. So, I sat, and I counted 247 pages! What document needs to be 247 pages long? Was she printing the manuscript to her unabridged fantasy epic? Or maybe it was a list of reasons why JK-FlipFlop needs to return to New Grounds.

What do you think she was printing?


I have a tough time dealing with stress. I'm sure a lot of my friends here on New Grounds do as well. So, I took action and I signed up for a stress management course at my college. I wasn't required to, but I thought it might be helpful. I'm not trying to work myself to death to graduate college in a hurry. College, to me, is more of a marathon than a race. Health is more important than getting a fancy degree. Plus, I don't want to look back on my college years someday and realize how miserable and stressed out I was along the way. Life doesn't begin after college, or high school, or after you get a good job, or after you get married and have kids, etc. Life begins at birth so I think it's very important to not neglect the present and always put your own well-being before any goals you set for yourself. Your health is your wealth.

Today was my first day and I'm really liking it so far. It was only an hour, but I felt like I learned quite a bit. As soon as I got out of my first day of stress management, however, I found out that my uncle, who was suppose to drive me home, was in a terrible car accident. He's fine, but my mother's car sure isn't. I don't know how I'm suppose to get to school tomorrow. By the same token, I suppose I'm in the right class.


The Boy Who Eats Things

There once was a peculiar boy who had this strange obsession with putting things in his mouth. It could be a rock, a penny, or even a little Lego man. One day while at school he found a lovely red paperclip on the floor and just as sure as the Colorado sunset, he plopped it into his mouth. He tucked it neatly under his right gum with his tongue and went about his day. The paperclip remained there all day long, but no one who looked at him or spoke with him would ever have guessed that he had a paperclip in his mouth. Why would they? Though he was certainly unusual, he looked like any other boy.

Okay, so I actually started this on January 1st of 2017, but on April 27th, all my pictures, including the backups, got deleted, so I had to start over. The twist is that in every picture, I stand five steps back from where I was the previous day. When done for a few weeks, it makes for an interesting effect - me moving down the road as my hair grows and everything is changing around me. It's gonna be especially nifty when the seasons change. I never post selfies, don't much like putting my face online, but this project is something I've wanted to do for awhile.

But why should you care? I don't know. Maybe you could try it yourself :-)

My Shadow.

One time I lost my shadow and people told me I had bad graphics.

Heather the Redheaded Robot wishes you only the happiest of holidays. I hope all my followers and all the talented folks here on this site have a fantastic day tomorrow. Peace <3

So my very prescription randomly went up like 6000% and now I can't afford the medicine I need. I don't feel well. I haven't been eating enough, I can't sleep, and I haven't really been making music or animations or (duck) drawings. My downs have been casted and all my melons are choly, but here's hoping things will turn around, and I'm sure they will. So in short, I'm just being dramatic and posting my personal problems online even though I'm gonna regret it and be embarrassed when things get better.

On the bright side, I found some of my old boardgames from back in the day. Small victories :)5331846_151181087713_Image194.jpg
