    So as you guys know, because I posted it in Lava Cooler, my girlfriend and I broke up.

    But it's not all bad.  I actually talked to her earlier today about our situation.  I had this gut feeling that I could do it, and I gathered up the courage and talked to her.  And in that moment that I seized, I just felt the weight of everything fall off my shoulders.  It just came to me.  I found my secret to happiness.  

    I said, "Success can be found everywhere, whether it's beating a game, or playing a song, or finishing an assignment.  it's the little successes that make us up."  And...

    I feel like writing one of these about my truck's status since I just got back from the parts store after spending $55.

    After taking a close look at the right front brakes, I have decided to go ahead and replace all three brake hoses. Now of course because my part's store is a small store, I only have the right front hose at the moment. The other two are being shipped in from a store not too far away.

    I also purchased two quarts of cheap automatic transmission fluid, of course stuff matching the factory specs and got a 12 oz bottle of brake fluid, which may not be enough for...

    No, I'm not changing it.
    Recently, I was thinking about my username. I like jokool, and I'll keep it for stuff like here and other forums I've frequented.

    However, I have been debating on changing what I go by if I ever do decide to try Let's Plays again. I was just going to to with jokool or jokool_aid (or something along those lines), but since I kind of fell through with the original channel I had set up as jokoolofficial, I kind of feel like I've screwed over the jokool name when it comes to Let's Playing...

    I mean, I could just go with a different version of jokool (like jokooltheofficial or...

    As many of you may know (or not know), I went to Anime Expo 2015 on Friday, July 3, at the LA Convention Center. Furthermore, I was cosplaying as Cynthia, the Sinnoh champion.

    First of all, I suggest to anyone that may be going to a convention that is as large as Anime Expo to try to schedule going more than one day. I only went on Friday and I definitely did not see/experience perhaps even half of what the convention offered, although it should be known that you will most likely be incredibly tired from walking around, and if you are an introvert like me, you will also get tired of...

    Greetings! I'm Lief Katano, and I'm here to bring Nintendo's E3 digital event directly to you!

    Star Fox Zero is here! The GamePad is the cockpit - that is, it shows a first person view and is your control device. You can make the Arwing transform! *transformers theme plays* This includes the Walker mode from Star Fox 2, the Landmaster, and a Gyro thing.

    It's called Zero because the kanji character looks cool. That is what Miyamoto said.

    Reg says that the theme for E3 is "transformation"; it makes sense given all the things they announced. I hope he's better at Mario...

    Get hype for E3! I'm Lief Katano, once again bringing you everything you need to know about Super Smash Bros.! I'll also, of course, be doing a blog post about Nintendo's E3 Digital Event. Today's Smash Direct coincides with Lucas becoming DLC; he'll become available thirty minutes after the event starts. Meaning that the event should only take thirty minutes. But thirty minutes just to talk about Lucas...? Hmmmmm.

    (Remember that I started this before the Direct.)

    Smash logo opens, aaaand...lag.

    Fire Emblem characters open! Then someone asks us to not...

    So today I managed to pull the clutch master cylinder out of the Ford Ranger. Though in the process I made the mistake of removing a snap ring I though would hold the master cylinder's push rod in place. Nope, instead that snap ring holds the guts of the master cylinder in. I've never seen this kind of thing before, but it didn't take me very long at all to figure out what I had just done.

    Thankfully I found that the master cylinder is not destroyed by this process and was able to reassemble the master cylinder on the bench by pushing the guts back in and reinstalling the snap ring.

    In which Lief describes the different types of Trap Cards
    Greetings! Last time, I talked to you about Spell Cards. Today, I will be informing you about Trap Cards!

    Trap Cards cannot be played directly from your hand. Instead, you must first Set them. After your opponent conducts their draw for the turn, you can activate the Trap Card, so long as any activation requirements are fulfilled. They're Spell Speed 2, so they can add to Chains. And start them.

    There's only three types of Trap Cards. But first, Lief was a derp and forgot about another type of Spell...

    In which Lief describes the different types of Spell Cards
    Greetings! Last time, we talked about even more Monster types. Today, we're moving on to a new type of card: the Spell Card! They don't protect your Life Points, but they're still just as useful as monster cards.

    There's five different types of Spell Cards (not counting Pendulum Monsters, which are their own thing and don't fall into any of the categories below). Each of them are played in the Spell/Trap Zones, which lie behind your Monster Zones. You can only have five Spell OR Trap Cards active at once, though...

    In which Lief describes three more types of monsters.
    Greetings! Last time, we started talking about different types of monsters. We'll continue that this time with three more types of monsters: Fusion, Xyz, and Pendulum!

    More large images this update, so...if you're computer/internet is still awful, this might not be the best place for you to be. We'll start off with Fusion Monsters:

    In which Lief describes three types of monster cards
    Greetings! Last time, we talked about starting and ending a game, as well as the basic flow of a turn. Now we'll be talking about monsters! You can't live without them. Seriously, though, making a no-monster deck is an awful idea, why would you do that.

    We're going to need some large images in this how-to today, so if your computer and/or internet can't handle's a problem.

    So let's throw up a monster card! Ladies and gentlemen...Dark Magician!

    So today I finally got a chance to work on the 1994 Ford Ranger that I want to buy, assuming I can get her running together. Now I've often glanced at the truck from a distance within the shop and I haven't really gotten the chance all school year to really examine her. Today I was considerably more intimate with this truck and learned quite a bit about her.

    First thing is that her shifter isn't as tall as I thought, nor does it have a bend in the column. I moved the shifter throughout all the gears and was satisfied by what I was feeling. Yes it has less resistance than what I'm used...

    In which Lief describes a turn in the classic children's card game
    This is, as the title states, part of a series of blog posts about how Yu-Gi-Oh! is played. This first post will be about a typical turn in Yu-Gi-Oh, as well as setting up the game.

    Before the game starts
    You must, obviously, have an opponent. Both you and your opponent must have a 40-60 card deck - officially the Main Deck, but most cards even just call it the "Deck", and we will here. Optional but typically beneficial is an "Extra Deck" that can store up to 15 Fusion, Synchro, or Xyz monsters - special types of monsters with special conditions to be played. We'll...

    So, as you should know, E3 is approaching fast.  And with the approach come the "leaks."  The leak for Nintendo's Digital Event showed some interesting stuff, and although it's probably fake, I'll still share the picture for kicks.

    (I guess I could have posted...

    This girl that goes to my school passed away recently. The story goes that she was feeling ill on Monday, so she went to the doctors, who said it was too serious, so then she was rushed to the hospital nearby...but she died in the early morning. Like I said before, it was a random sickness that just suddenly appeared, and turned out to be fatal.

    She was an 18 year old senior. She was 9 weeks away from graduating and had a scholarship to Virginia Tech. She was pretty, popular, and a star player for the softball team. I never knew her, but I'm still shocked and...angry. She was too young,...

    Surprise! Micro Direct! I guess it's not that big of a surprise since there was an Nintendo Direct yesterday... We start off with Bill being small. Whoops. Also Bill's awesome.

    New Chibi Robo game! Who's surprised? It's called Whiplash. And it's an action game! He can use his plug to attack and grab stuff. It looks like it's still timed via battery power, but you can renew it. There's an amiibo that's part of the bundle that allows you to become Super Chibi Robo! Coming out October.

    New Dr. Mario game! A new item called the Miracle Cure that can do stuff like eliminate viruses...

    I am chronicling events which I've experienced on May 28th, 2015, which were tiring and memorable. I've split it up into three parts so that this blog post is easier on the eyes.

    Early to Mid Morning (Last Final):
    Originally, I planned to wake up early and take a shower but I decided in a split second, upon hearing my blaring alarm from my iPod, that it would be more rational to have 5 hours of sleep versus 4 hours of sleep. From the time I awoke thereafter, I had a fairly normal morning. I...

    So lately whenever I've been alone with my grandpa he has given quite a bit of life advice. So I thought I would go ahead and bullet point much of it.

    *Every paycheck should be used in the following way: First save part of it in a savings account, next pay off your bills, finally you can use what is left over for yourself. Even a janitor can become a millionaire if he follows this.

    *Family is important, no matter how much you hate your siblings. When stuff really goes down, more than likely they will be the only ones there for you.

    *There is always someone worse...
