Am I being too harsh?

A few days ago, Chris, Raj and I where chatting on skype, and we got onto the topic of sub 4 sub. I detest sub for sub and am proud to say I never engaged in it, even when I had under 5 subs. anyway, while in the chat, i thought it would be funny to go around to a few of my good youtube friends pages and leaves comments that simply said "sub 4 sub?" and then chris joined in and did it aswell. It was intended as a joke and all our friends saw it as that. but it seems other people have been seeing the comments and taken them seriously and over the past few days I have received several serious sub for sub requests. I ignored them as i have always done and for a couple of them i simply replied with something along the lines of "sorry I don't do sub 4 sub, I prefer to earn my subscribers" now this is where this blog gets its purpose and ceases to be pointless drabble, and gets its soul.

Today i got this message from someone who recently subscribed to me.

"I subscribed to you and you never subscribed ME back. i thought you said you do sub 4 sub even though i usually dont"

and i replied with this

No I don't do sub for sub!
If you ever saw a sub for sub comment from me it was sent as an ironic joke to one of my friends because we always talk about how much we dislike sub for sub. don't bother un-subscribing I have done it for you. Sub for sub is not a good way to get subscribers. you need to earn them if you want them to be loyal and watch, it feels much better to earn them as well.

now tell me, am I being too harsh?

While I'm being harsh, I just wan't to make a statement to a few of those who have complained about my punctuation and capitalization in my blogs. this is my blog, I come here to write, not to be graded. I will not always remember to capitalize my I's. I will not always remember to put an apostrophe in I'm and I will occasionally have typos.

I generally just do what im told...

WOW! okay nick, calm down, I'm sorry ill post more often, infact i might even post now!

I have been in the boarding house for a week now and it is fine, i come in here quite often because my mum goes away a fair bit. So for that reason I'm used to how everything works, and it is generally pretty easy to slip back into the schedule of things.

There are generally 3 things people ask about when they find out your going into boarding school, and i will attempt to answer all of them here.

Q: whats the food like?
A: In my oppinion the food is fine, allot of the boarders complain about it but they complain about allot of stuff so we won't bother with there opinions. when alot of people imagine boarding house food I think they imagine that classic scene from all american teen drama's with the kids walking up to the counter holding big metal trays and they have some browny grey still moving slop ladled onto there tray and they cringe and keep moving, this is certainly (and thankfully) not the case, last night for dinner there way choice of a vegetarian pasta dish, a sorta quiche thing and lasagna, and of course potatoes, beans and various salads for sides.

Ok that paragraph was getting out of control, I was jumping from one thing to another without making much sense so i am going to stop it and simply say the food is fine. :)

Q: is there a bedtime?
A: yes there is, everyone must be upstairs in the dorm areas by 9, in there own cubicles or rooms by 9:30 and lights out by 10. and yes sadly these rules are inforced, with people patroling and checking in on the various dorms to make sure all lights are out, and all people are in there beds. despite this most nights i have managed to stay up till around 11 watching movies, via either hiding my laptop under my bed cover or by hovering my hand over the screen brightness key and just turning the screen ligh off if someone ever enters the dorm.
oh yea im hell rebel...

Q: what are the rooms like?

The dorm's
(each curtained section is a different cubicle with 2 larger rooms at the end for the year 12's)

My desk space (if you look close enough yu can see this half written blog on the computer screen)

Ma bed(yay for bright colours!!)

Ok thats about it really for this post, see you all next time!

A Pretty Epic Day


How was my day you ask? EPIC thats how!

Ok, so I may have been sick home from school with a stomachache and dizziness, but today was still epic.

Epic things that happened today

Reached 700 subs (700th sub was residentmikelee)

Met 5 new epic youtubers

Had a totally epic 6 hour long skype chat with 6 epic youtubers

Became a member of an epic youtube brotherhood and secret society

Learn't the epic origins of Nar

Made a video responce to toddly00's epic "this is me..." video

Wrote a (mildly epic?) vlog post.

There was other stuff but I can't remember it all, so today i leave you with a demand:

All comments on this blog post must be epic, and contain randomly capatalised words. Or i will delete them!

(what do you mean you want me to properly puncuate and capatalise my blogs!? BAH! I don't need no punctuation! and besides, I'm lazy. I'm a teenager not an English teacher, punctuation is for squares... (do people still say squares? I'm so out of touch with today's slang... (WOW! brackets within brackets within brackets?! all correct English skills really have gone out the window haven't they...)))

ok bye
