This day came, the day when I played CS 1.6, in my school, with my rival (she always gets A's, lol), while my classmates were watching me.

It all came as an agreement between my class teacher and me. Basically, I was refusing to decide to go on the future school trip to Montenegro.
So, we made a compromise, and arranged this little "event".

In fact, this could be the best maths class ever! I wish there be more moments like this.

My classmates didn't believe me that I made the school map in 7th grade, so I showed them the actual map. (and I'm the only one in my school, lol)

Unfortunately, I cannot copy-paste the whole blog here because it would take too much time. It's 22:50 here, that's 10:50PM!
So, you can still read it here.

Haha. Copy-pasting takes time?

I love how excited you were to see your friends playing your map. I remember the thrill of seeing that in-person for the first time myself, and it really stuck with me.

Why didn't you want to go on the school trip? They were the best days of school!

Keep doing what you're doing; It's good that your class are enjoying it. Try not to show off too much, make sure your teachers know it's a creative outlet, don't kiss your cousin and be proud of your work.

As long as everyone had a great moment and such, that was kinda great.

I follow Archie's opinion about why this "challenge" instead of the school trip, those are quite rare in France (but I don't know how it is in Bosnia and Herzegovina).

The blog was formatted in HTML, unlike TWHL's BBCode. Converting it would've taken time!

The map itself will be released both on GB and TWHL. It's just an improved version of my school map which was made in 7th grade.
The new school map for Sven Co-op, however, is going to be much much better than this.

I didn't want to go to Montenegro because, well... I have this "fear" of travelling because I've never travelled outside of my country.
(this "event" of playing CS in school was accomplished, therefore I promised to go on the trip)

And I don't kiss anyone, just Jody. After all, my girlfriend loves kissing (and cuddling, too). :3

You didn't understand.

Basically, I made a deal:
"If Selena and I play CS in school, I will go on the trip."

(by the way, she didn't have to win in CS, it was just a friendly, casual introduction to the game)

Best way to get over a fear is to just confront it. I had convinced myself I was scared of flying - any time I went abroad it took forever because I had to take trains and ferries and more trains. It was really limiting.
Then when I was ~18 I got one of my first freelance jobs which required me to fly all over the UK. For around three months I was taking about four flights a week!

I was super nervous going into it because I had convinced myself I was scared of flying, but after that first flight? I just laughed because it was such a silly fear, and it went away instantly.

Visiting other parts of the world is one of the most important educations you can get - don't deny yourself that experience, you'll regret it. :)

But Montenegro is right next to BiH. We will go there by bus, it's just a little pinch longer than going to my country's capital.
Basically, what I've said implies that I'll go on the trip, so...
avatar Archie says: 15th March 2017, 15:38 PM
Just because it's nearby doesn't mean it won't be good!
(although if I was going that distance from BiH, I'd pick Croatia)

Many many people fail to realise this:
I've never said that going to Montenegro is bad.
Where on Earth did you even find "nearby = bad"? I didn't write it anywhere. xD

And, well... we didn't have any offers for Cro-
Actually we did, but we voted for Montenegro because the previous generations would go there.

The use of the word 'But' at the beginning of your post makes it seem like it's a bad thing that it's so close, that's all. Like you were disappointed you weren't going further.
avatar Admer456 says: 15th March 2017, 19:30 PM
I said "but" because you said "Visiting other parts of the world". In my opinion, something very close to my country isn't considered another part of the world, but rather a part of the part of the world where I am.

And, I have a habit of adding all sorts of words on the beginning of my sentences:
actually, in fact, and, but, however, although, despite, even though, well, fortunately, unfortunately, apparently, albeit etc.
despite there being no need for them. ;)
I think I should use those only when needed to express a certain thought.

That's it. I'll go to Montenegro because my request was completed. And as you've seen, the request was playing CS 1.6 in my school, on my school map (We couldn't load the school map on Selena's laptop, so we had to play on de_dust2).

I hope these get archived so you can read these later on in life and look back and these and enjoy the moment. :))
avatar Admer456 says: 15th March 2017, 21:41 PM
Darn... good idea!
I will take a screenshot of the entire blog and upload it somewhere, e.g. on Imgur.

Thank you, GhostOneTwentyNiner! xD

I hope Internet Wayback Machine is monitoring TWHL ^^

... Pronounce my Username like that one more time, and I will throw you out of an aircraft.
avatar Admer456 says: 16th March 2017, 16:11 PM
Ahahaha, OK.
If you want, freely call me AdmerFourFiftySix. xD (or anything else that you'd like)

Edit: You'd seriously throw me out of an aircraft?

@Shepard Yes, it is.
