aka Nari hates me

  • I live in a fictional land
  • I was born on June 24
  • My occupation is games and chill
  • I am realizing that my Wikia username from 2014 aged horribly

I'm Darkfire, aka DF, Ricky Bob, Bob, "BBBBBBBOBBBBBB", Bobby, Ricky Bobby, or DuckFire....et cetera.

I'd like to consider myself the local grammar Nazi; I have a keen eye when it comes to spelling and grammar mistakes.

Aaaaaaaand that pretty much sums up everything I do here for now. Because...life is busy.

Stuff About My Offline Life

  • I write stories for fun.
    • I wake up at least hour earlier than I should so I can write my novels. This is my most productive hour, as I can easily think and write without distractions.
    • When people watch me write (anything, even a homework or a reminder note or anything), it makes me anxious and uncomfortable to the point that I have to stop and ask them to leave. The mere possibility of someone watching me write (for example, if someone was sitting next to me and watching TV while I was writing...they could just turn their head and BOOM.)
    • I've written two novellas already (one around 28,000 words, one around 40,000 words) and a first draft to a full-length dystopia/post-apocalyptic/sci-fi/fantasy novel (around 84,000 words). The latter is the one I am most proud of; I don't consider the others good enough for anything.
    • I am currently working on a second draft to that sci-fi fantasy novel I just mentioned. However, recent productivity has gone down, because...
    • I'm also working on a side project that...will never reach the Internet because it's only for wish fulfillment purposes and... (omitted) = w =
    • My favorite book is Ender's Game.
    • Interestingly enough, I often find inspiration for writing when I'm supposed to be doing something else, like school or homework. When I have nothing to do, however, it's harder for me to have *moments of inspiration*.
    • My grammar Nazi-ness is a side effect of my novel. However, it is easy for me to restrain that "grammar Nazi" side of me; otherwise, I'd probably be pretty obnoxious in Real Life and Facebook chat.
    • I have ADHD-Inattentive Type. That means that it's really hard for me to notice and remember things. Because of this, I still might accidentally make grammar errors, despite my self-proclaimed status as a grammar Nazi.
  • Lightwater454 is my younger brother. He's a pretty cool guy, but a bit on the curious side at times.
  • I often end up stuck inside a busy day - lazy day schedule (you have a busy day, and you're so tired out that you take the next day off as a lazy day, and then the day after that's a busy day because you slacked off...and on and on and on and on...)
  • I used to play video games all the time. Now, I usually stick to video games that can help or inspire me when it comes to my writing.
  • I occasionally watch anime, especially if I admire the writing or creative aspects of it. However...I usually don't have time for that.
  • I tend to really obsess over certain minor characters.
  • I occasionally animate using either stop motion or basic stick figure techniques.
  • I primarily use a Mac - my family doesn't have a Windows computer as of now, which unfortunately limits what I can do to some degree.
  • This is a placeholder. ^.^ < . < v . v > . >

Mr. Wilson's Rules for Life

  1. Follow the Rules...everyone else does
  2. Don't get caught breaking the Rules
    1. Only a moron would think this means you can break the Rules as long as you don't get caught.
    2. You must know all the rules before you ever think of breaking them
    3. It is easier to ask forgiveness than it is permission
  3. If you get caught breaking the Rules, take it like a man! (accept the consequences) - U knew it was a rule, U knew you could get caught, U got caught. Don't be a crybaby
  4. If in doubt about whether it's a rule or not, see #1.
  5. You are not known by mistakes you make, you are known by mistakes you fix.
    1. Anyone can screw-up. It takes skill and character to fix a screw-up.
  6. Life is not fair -- get used to it!
    1. The way things are and the way things outta be. Know the difference
    2. No hearse ever had a trailer
  7. The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
    1. Partial credit ends in school
  8. Pick a good spouse
    1. A faint heart never won a fair lady.
    2. Never pass up an opportunity to pee.
    3. If he/she says that you are too good for them - believe them.
  9. Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight
    1. If it’s stupid and it works, it ain’t stupid
    2. The important things are always simple. The simple things are always hard.
  10. If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
  11. Life is tough, it’s tougher if you’re stupid...and the stupid shall be punished.
  12. Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
  13. Great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  14. If it’s easy, anyone can do it, and cheaply. If it’s hard only you can do it.
  15. No matter how far down the wrong road you’ve traveled, never be afraid to turn back. Admitting you’ve made a mistake is the surest sign of intelligence.
  16. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable = change is good.
    1. You will never feel 100% ready for something new - Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises.
    2. Some people accept change, some resist it, the former usually succeed, the latter usually fail.
    3. Everything looks like a failure in the middle. In nearly every change project, doubt is cast on the original vision because problems are mounting and the end is nowhere in sight.
    4. Work life is like a tree full of monkeys. The monkeys on top look down and see a tree full of smiling faces. The monkeys on the bottom look up and see nothing but.....
    5. It is not the critic that counts... The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
    6. Fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts
    7. Where ignorance is bliss / ‘Tis folly to be wise.
  17. Know when good enough - is!
    1. Perfection is the enemy of Good
  18. Pick your battles. Why this fight? Is it relevant? If you lose, so what?
  19. Know if you are a crab in a bucket, and others are keeping you down.
    1. Your true character is most accurately measured by how you treat those who can do nothing for you.
    2. If you must choose between the easy way and the hard way, the hard way is usually the more moral choice.
  20. Keep your expectations low and you will be pleased with what happens.
  21. Don’t give up control of those things that are the most important to you; how others perceive you, your attitude, your paperwork, etc.
  22. Never give up. Almost nothing works the first time it’s attempted.
  23. You get what you inspect, not what you expect
  24. Learn to tolerate fools...there are so many of them
  25. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it
  26. The 80/20 rule applies at every level (20% of the people do 80% of the work)
  27. You’re offended by something I/they said? So what? No, really, so what?
  28. College today is less about educating you for the rest of your life and more about making you feel good about the fact-deficient opinions you already possess.
  29. Information is not knowledge. - Knowledge comes from experience.
  30. A conclusion is often what you reach when you got tired of thinking
  31. Your life will be in a different time...your rules will be your own...

*The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the ability to recognize their mistakes.[1] The unskilled therefore suffer from false superiority, rating their ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their own abilities, suffering from false inferiority. Actual competence may weaken self-confidence, as competent individuals may falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. As Kruger and Dunning conclude, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others"*
