Meaning Of ‘Grit Through the Teeth’

Many, meaning none, of you may have wondered the reason behind the name decision.

It actually took me quite a while to decide on it when I decided to create this blog. That, and the user name were tricky to be happy with. Literally I was struggling for a while.

It was unique, I guess, because I doubt anyone would choose that name. It’s not bbygrl58008618 or slttyprncss1999, so that’s one thing.

At the time, it was on my mind because I’d imagined grittercore would be…

P.S. Grit = Rocks = Rocky

P.P.S. Late Weekly Writing Challenge. 😦

Something Else, Just To Fill The Gaps

Hello to all. This is poor form to plan this post as unplanned, but that’s essentially what every previous post has been until I have the page up. That way, you know the material is real. Particularly due to the fact that you’re reading it.

To continue from ‘filling the gaps’, I’ll be putting up my post for the Weekly Writing Challenge of ‘Cliffhanger’ soon. Perhaps 12 hours or so after this post, which is set to a 12 hour delay itself, so I can catch up on my ‘one post per day’ motive. If you are not already aware, I just gave you a clue to the answer, conclusion, aftermath, or something.

Really, I had very little for the challenge until the spirit of the moment, I thought I’d do what I’m going to do. Already in my head it’s not very exciting and I bet plenty of posters already have Grade A material. My post will be the one the teacher puts up on the board and asks “…what the f- is this? No seriously, please enlighten us on where to find your supplier.”

Nonetheless, I’ll participate for the sake of it. It’s kind of cool in a way, but I would’ve done something more extravagant if I had better prepared. Well that should be it. This ended being an introduction into the Writing Challenge. The challenge for me is blocking out the boos and swatting at urine-covered stones thrown at me.

A Burst of Exposure

10 Likes and I’m surprised. Thank you, everyone. 5/6 alone for the Photo Challenge post. Not a lot, but more than I expected.

Enough of that and more Tycoon games. Love them. Some of my most memorable games of all time are Tycoon Games. Rollercoaster Tycoon (2) is just brilliant, and the smaller Lemonade Tycoon is quite fun also. There’s plenty of others I haven’t played, though the ones I have I’ve enjoyed.

Only recently I’ve seen a large amount of Game Dev Tycoon. Very cool. (Y) The concept is brilliant and their anti-piracy approach is very clever. I think more games should incorporate it. However, the only disappoint for me was the shortness of the game. I mean, 35 years of the industry is plenty, but that only equates to roughly 10 hours of actual gameplay. Still, it’s great game and you can continue on without new breakthroughs. 😀

Yes, games are great.

All Outta Ideas & Discovery

I did it again. Late once more. I hoped to have one post per day but yesterday I kinda shrugged it off. Not that I didn’t want to, just yeah…

So yeah, I got nothin’. So let’s discuss coming up with ideas, then. I quite enjoy computer programming, but I haven’t managed to do any recently due to time restrictions. As part of a project I did with a group of friends, we designed an Android app – the first of mobile design I’ve done. I like it. There’s a sort of thrill when you stand back and look at what you’ve created and think to yourself, “…whyyy does this exist. What a freakin’ disaster.” All too many times has that happened.

*insert pictures here*

But in all seriousness, it’s great to learn and I recommend learning it if you haven’t done so already. If you have, don’t ditch it. Keep it up, otherwise King will rule the world with its Saga series. That is:

Stealing
All
Gamer’s
Assets

Heh, that’s so lame. I’ll speak more of this later.

Oh, on a much more important note, my ramblings have been viewed, and even LIKED! Yeesh. I haven’t promoted this blog, or any of the posts. I wanted it to be that way, so word of mouth or accidental discovery is how my BS is found and hated.

But, thank you to those three people. 😀

No Idea What I’m Doing

Well this is the first of many blog posts to come. I’ve never really done this and have wanted to for some time now. What it will be about, I’m not 100% but it will be something.

I wanted to start this on the day if my birthday (a ‘momentous’ one), however it totally slipped my mind and what a better way to start this uninteresting blog than on New Year’s Day itself. On that note, Happy New Year!

Now this post is a little rushed as time is ticking before the 2nd and the last hour and a half was spent struggling with this phone and Wi-Fi connectivity that wants me to suffer, so this has become more of an introductory post. Rest assured, the following ones will have more depth and appeal covering whatever is posted.

Q&A:
What does the blog name even mean? Sounds as if you were dropped on the head as a child.

I wish I knew. Being low on ideas leads to bad things. There is a double meaning attempt with it which I’ll explain another time, though your comment has been debated numerous times…by relatives also.

You do realise no one will read this, right?

I know I won’t be reading it.

I’m 12 years old and what is this?

(Y)our worst nightmare.
