Done!!! (But Taking A Short Trip!)

I'M DONE YOU GUYS
I'M OFFICIALLY DONE

YESTERDAY
WAS
MY LAST DAY OF SCHOOOOOOOOLLLLL!!!
I'M ON SUMMER BREAKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!


Ahhh, I'm so excited! This summer's gonna be awesome, I just know it, XD! There's so many things I want to do, and I hope I get to do all of them, or at least most! Posting more and finishing Larry The Bunny (AT LASTTTTTT, I know) are two of them!


However, I won't actually be here for around a week, starting this Monday! I'll be away at church camp, and we're not allowed to use devices, so therefore I won't be able to post or see any of you guys at all until Saturday afternoon, when I get back, DX! I'll miss you guys, but I'm super excited about camp this year, and I hope I learn as much as I did last year! Plus, I'll hopefully be receiving some daily updates about what's been happening that I can read before everyone goes to bed (we can have our phones out for a short time before "Lights-Out", as they call it), hehe! ;)


I doubt I'll have time to make another post before Monday, so I suppose I should say goodbye now! Don't have too much fun without me, XDD!
Okay, nvm - have as much fun as you want, XD!

SEE YOU ALL SOOOOOOOOOOONNN!!!

I'm Back?! (With a Screenshot Dump, Hehe!)

...
Eheheheh...
Hi?

OKAY, OKAY, WAIT
BEFORE YOU GUYS START YELLING AND THROWING THINGS AT ME OR DOING, UH WHATEVER, LET ME EXPLAIN!


I guess you could call this an unexpected hiatus of sorts, and I apologize for it being unplanned! I've been kinda busy trying to finish up my last few days of school, but if I'm being honest here, it's mostly because I really ran out of posting ideas for a while there, and I didn't quite feel like posting. I don't know WHY, exactly - I just didn't.
But anyways, I just needed a bit of a break, and now that I've had one, I'm back and ready to post again!


I figured I'd clear out some more pictures that have been rotting in my files today, so let's go ahead and get on with that!


*Clicks through files* Let's seeeeeee...
AHA! HERE'S SOME, XD!

 First, an odd glitch - I put a Lei on, and it gave my sabertooth a matching beard?! I found it kinda cool, XD! Although I dunno if it showed up after clicking off of Change Your Look, though...

 A while back, my deer was able to sit completely off any platform right here in Sarepia! Lemmie see if it still works...
*5 minutes later because I got distracted XD*
Yup!! It still does! With any animal too, XD! Gosh, I guess AJ animals can levitate now!

 Wow. That's a, uh... good comeback?? I really dunno what these two were arguing about, XD!
 I get they meant "I got scammed my long, :(", but #1. Why type out "sad face", and #2. It almost sounds like they said their long sad face was scammed, XDD!
WAIT WAIT, I'M GONNA MAKE AN EDIT FOR THIS!
I dunno guys, I think it looks pretty legitimate! XD

 Mira is mean to you? I thought no one in Jamaa knew where she was. But hey, maybe she secretly is rude to this person in, uh... dreams or something? XD

 OM, I JUST LOVE TEENSIES! MHM, I'VE HEARD ALL ABOUT THEM! THEY'RE SO... TEENSY!
 I took this one just a few days ago, because I noticed that the gizmo pattern (and maybe others too) doesn't seem to disappear underground when the dire wolf's snout does! Guess they got left behind, XD!
Also, WHY is that dirt so RED-LOOKING.

 Yeah! Cmon, stop fishing!
I really dunno what was trying to be said here. XD
 What animal... OH, RIGHT, MY RED PANDA!
I put this item on my red panda when I first got it to test it out, and, uh... the flame isn't even attached? I mean, yeah, my tail isn't getting burned, but, uh... every other animal's tail IS? And plus, IT LOOKS COOLER ATTACHED! XD

*Laughs*
Okay, yes, I get it - "new barn" = "newborn". But new barn looks hilarious, XD! Almost as if they're asking for a daughter who's a barn?
Also, do people still roleplay as a newborn anymore? They wouldn't get to do much... XD!

And lastly, taken just a few minutes ago, my glitchy Jammer Wall Masterpiece, which for some reason decided it was staying put! XD!



Anywho guys, I hope this post satisfied you all for now! I'll try my best to come up with some new posting ideas and post more before I'm off to camp for a week! Stay tuned, and remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on! (Man, I need a new outro... XD!)

I'm Back- With Some Tags!!

*Sighs* Okay, I promise guys, my period of inactivity will be over soon! 

I've been super busy with my school play, but the performances of it are this week, so after that, I'm officially done!! I'm quite excited to be going home 3 hours earlier than I have been, XD!
That will also mean that you'll be seeing more posts from me!! YAAAAY, XDD!


Anyways, I saw that a couple new tags have been made recently by Violet and Ja, and I've been wanting to do them for a while now! So let's do those now, XD!


First up, the Official AJ Blogger Tag, made by Vi!!



1. Oh, hehe, well, that should be obvious! It's STRAIGHTDU- I MEAN... SWIRLSHINE! XDD

2. I started blogging on September 26th, 2014! (I need to remember that... I always forget to celebrate 
my bloggerversary, XD!)

3. I write for this blog, The Weekly Jammer News, of course, and I'm also the Saturday author on the Animal Jam Artists Collaborative!

4. Hehe, well, yep, this is my own AJ blog, of course! I'd like an IRL blog as well, but I usually post what goes on in my life on here anyway, XD! Plus, I'm pretty cautious about what I put out there!

5. I've been blogging for about 4 years now, I believe! Goodness, I've come a long way, XD!

6. If I'm being entirely honest, I first started blogging because younger me had seen how popular the Animal Jam Spirit Blog was, and wanted some fame of her own. Over the years, though, my way of thinking changed, and now, I continue blogging simply because I love writing and meeting new people online!

7. The story behind this blog is basically what I put in #6, and I was hired as an author on the AJAC because of my passion for art!

8. I've been playing since September 2013! 

9. My favorite thing about blogging is the community! It's an amazing group of kind writers with lots of similar interests, and I found my best friends because of it!
My least favorite part would probably be how time-consuming writing a post is, XD! It takes me quite a long time!

10. Just growing up and changing my style is honestly something memorable to me! I'm glad I'm not as cringey as I used to be, XD!
And talking with the other bloggers is super fun as well!! I love being crazy and joking around with people, XD!

11. My intro? Well, I don't really have a specific one! I use the "Swirlshine Intro" a lot, though, which is the intro style with all the "You Guys:" and "Me:"'s, XDD! 
And my outro (which I've been thinking of changing, XD), is always some form of the phrase "Remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on!" It's from my early days of blogging, but it stuck with me for some reason, XD!

12. I do not! Every blogger's blog and personality is unique, and I love that! Plus, I'm just a person who really doesn't pick favorites!

13. All of my amazing friends, and just the fact that I love writing about my life and ideas with a purpose!!

14. Anything, really! I do enjoy making stories, though! (Speaking of stories, I WILL get some more Larry The Bunny chapters out soon, guys! I haven't forgotten!)

15. I'm with Lost on this one- if the blogger likes posting it, then I like reading it!!





*Reads through all of that*
Did I even use ONE period in this WHOLE post so far?! I'm not seeing any! Goodness.
Thereee we go, XD!

Anywho, thanks for making this tag, Vi, and Lost as well, for convincing me to do this tag because of your post!
Last but not least, we have Ja's Instrument Tag! I thought this was a really cool idea, so I decided I'd give it a go!


1. I do! I play guitar, and I'm currently in the "advanced" group! Can't say I'm super amazing yet, but I really love playing songs on the guitar!

2. My favorite instruments are the guitar and piano!

3. The guitar is great for upbeat, happy sounds, and pianos are beautiful for slower songs!! Since I like many genres of music, I enjoy different instruments a bit more at different times, XD!

4. Oh goodness. No hesitation on this one. 
THE KAZOO.

5. Can the kazoo even be considered an instrument?! I swear, it just hurts my ears every time I hear it.  I CANNOT. STAND. KAZOOS. XDD!

6. I'd go with piano! It seems hard to finally become an advanced piano player, but I would absolutely LOVE to know how to play such a wide variety of songs on that instrument!

7. Oh goodness... do I have to choose?! I love so many piano songs, aaaah! XDD!
I seriously can't pick just one song, but I can say that I'd absolutely love to try Be Brave by Owl City on piano! Of course, I can't do the electric guitar parts, but quite a lot of the song is piano, XD! Plus, it's just overall a breathtaking song, in my opinion!





And there you have it! My answers to two awesome tags!! 

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and I'm looking forward to making more in the near future!! So, until then, remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on, and I'll see you all soonnnnn!! Byeeee! ;)

A Bit Of Explaining...

Me: *Warily walks in* H-Hey guys. *does a small wave*
You Guys: Swirl?
Me: Um, yeah?
You Guys: WHAT ON EARTH WAS-


OKAY OKAY, YOU CAN STOP RIGHT THERE!!! I know what you're going to say! (Although most of you know already, eheheh...)
YES, IT WAS A PRANK, AND YES, I'M SORRY FOR SCARING EVERYONE!!!

*Calms down*
Ahem, sorry.

If you don't know what I'm going on about, my bad! I'll slow down and start from the beginning!




So, on Saturday, some of you may have checked my blog and noticed something different. Or a few somethings. Such as an all-black profile picture, a cleared Blogger profile, a blank post, and my Blogger username changed to "S.D."

I promise you guys, I wasn't being hacked or anything! That was just an, uh, April Fools Day prank.
Surprise, ehehehe...

Actually, I ended up telling most everyone who I noticed was freaked out by this whole thing, because ack, I just can't let people worry about me when the whole thing's a prank and I'm fine. That's not fair, and it's almost lying, in a way. Idk, but I'm sorry. Most of you know why all that was changed already, but my apologies again! Didn't mean to absolutely scare you or anything!



*Holds hands up* I'm done, though. Cross "Do a prank" off my list. I am NOT a prank person! Oh, I can DO the prank, alright, but keeping the secret and not feeling completely guilty is another problem, eheheh...




So I hope this cleared stuff up, and hopefully, none of you are super annoyed at me or anything! I hope you all had a happy Easter, and hopefully, I'll have some time to post this week after school! Until then, remember to party hard, be kind, not hate me because of this and jam on! See you all soon! ;)

An Ancient Theory?

Hello hello everyone!! Hope you guys are having an awesome week so far!
I gotta say, I LOVE spring break, XD! Feels like summer, kinda! But uh, without the super-hot temperatures. XD
But honestly, I love taking a break from school, since it's gotten pretty stressful lately, and sadly, that's not going to change anytime soon. State testing is coming up, and so's the school play and solo and ensemble (for choir), so, uh, that'll be fun, eheheh.
Well, okay, the play will be fun, but staying after school for so long to practice ISN'T. XD


Aaaaanyways, now that that odd intro is out of the way, why don't we just dive right into the topic of this post?

*Zones out for a second because of music playing in the background*
RIGHT. POST. XD



So, I'm sure we've all seen this by now! Apparently, a stone carving that resembles an animal has appeared in the Temple Of The Ancients. Now, let me just say, when Sarah first showed me this a couple days ago, I saw that carving completely differently. Like, this is what I saw.

Don't judge, it was made in Paint in less than 5 minutes. XD

Yep. To be fair, though, it showed up blurry for me, so the triangle-in-a-square thing looked more like an eye at the time.
Sarah can tell you herself that I kept screaming it looked like a ancient capybara with a dinosaur leg, XDD!

Anyways, looking at the ACTUAL statue (and taking a second look at the picture), I realized I had no idea what it was.
UNTIL I FINALLY SAW IT
IT'S A...


DON'T YOU SEE IT?!


XD, nah, I'm just joking! Mostly. Honestly, come on, it looks a LOT like a guinea pig with fangs, a dinosaur foot, and a bird tail feather... thing. XDD

If you expected a theory on what I think this animal is... sorry to disappoint you, but I have absolutely no idea. It's a saber-toothed dinea pig (dinosaur/guinea pig, XD). That's all I've got. XDD


However, while flying around the Temple Of The Ancients as my falcon, I did realize something!


There are two egg-looking things at the tops of two of the... tower things!
Honestly, I have no idea if these are a new addition, or if I've just overlooked them all this time, but they're certainly mysterious! 
Maybe some new statue-things will be found because of those two eggs? Or maybe the eggs are fossils themselves!

Or maybe they're just decorative egg-looking tower points. I'm not sure. But the striped one seems to have the overlapping issue (like the one at the Summer Carnival, with the clothes items booth) already, and that COULD mean it'll be altered in the near future! 


So, what do you guys think? Have you seen these egg-things before, or do they seem new to you? Do you think they could end up being ACTUAL eggs? And do you have any ideas on what the new animal may be? (*Cough cough* Saber-toothed dinea pig) Go ahead and tell me what you think in the comments!
As always, everyone, remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on! I'll see you all soonnnnn!! ;D

I'm Finally Here! Have Some Screenshots!

Me: *Walks in* Hi guys!
You Guys: *Whispering to each other* Oh look, there she is. Don't say anything.
Me: Um... I can hear you.
You Guys: *Just glares*
Me: What? What did I do?!
You Guys: So you finally decided to come back and post? After 2 weeks, when you're supposed to post EVERY week?
Me: Oh... eheheh... yeah, that.
You Guys: *Taps foot impatiently* Get to explaining.
Me: Welllll... *takes deep breath*
You Guys: In NORMAL POSTING STYLE.
Me: *Lets it out* Oh, right.


Hehe! Anyways, hi guys!
I know, I know, I haven't posted in 2 weeks. I apologize, really I do. But there's been a lot going on in my life right now- we finally had our choir competition last week, and we'd been practicing a lot before it. I also have practice for the school play, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 5 to 7 PM. That leaves me pretty tired afterwards, and with the homework I've had, I haven't really felt up to posting at all. I even stayed up till 4 to finish a project for Spanish last week. Yes, 4 AM. In the morning. It wasn't good, you guys- goodness, I was so tired the whole day!
Plus, I've also just been kinda out of ideas.

But hey, even though I still am, there's always one thing to do in the face of writer's block!
AAAAA SCREENSHOT DUMP! XD
So that's what I'll be doing today!




First... I found a Masterpiece by a New Jammer! Which is quite odd... Masterpieces get approved in about a day, right? So unless New Jammer nametags last for more than one day (I can't remember- the last time I was a New Jammer was years ago, XD), then this Masterpiece must've gotten approved in less than a day... somehow. Or the nametag just glitched and kept showing New Jammer after their username was approved.
Also... wait, they have enough diamonds ALREADY? Man!

 So... can you change the size of pet fireflies? Because if not, something went wrong here. O.O

Please, do NOT ever use this dangerous mailbox.

 Should've shown this one a loong time ago, but, when Bitter Sweets was out this year, I played as my bat, and, after doing an action (I think), when I tried to fly around, I was missing one wing!

Salad.
So... is someone's NAME salad? Is it a nickname? Do they mean something else? Or is it just something random?
I guess we'll never know. XD
 ALL HAIL THE GIANT RAT!!!

I guess they mean the mud? XDD, but, uh, why does it smell like gas?!

 *Stifles a laugh* There you have it, I guess. Smelly car cars.

Snorlax is, uh, blue.
XDD- to be honest, I mostly just found it funny that they were saying "Plzzz pick me"!

 *Snickers* MISS POOP. WOW. INSULTING.

This happened to me around the Night Of The Phantoms too- my lemur didn't have a face! Freaky! Seems like something people would put in those AJ "creepypastas". 

 I found this one not too long ago- it's since been fixed, though! But for a while, the scrolls in the Forgotten Archive also appeared farther up! I found it a pretty cool glitch, hehe!

 Oh man, I love this one. I can so imagine someone saying this in an odd conversation, for some reason.
Random person: *Complains about something*
Other random person: I don't care. Call Mr. Paul.
XDDD!
Speaking of complaining...

Okay, I know this isn't AJ, but I still wanted to show this! (The YouTube username and picture were edited out just because. Privacy, I guess. I really dunno why I did it, tbh, but I wanted to. XD)
Yeesh, what a kind person. *nods*
*Blinks* How did that get 64 likes?

And finallyyy, one last picture from NOTP! Seems one leaf isn't the same color as the rest, XD!




Whew! I did it, guys- I posted! XD!
I hope you all enjoyed that! Hopefully I'll get some more ideas for posts throughout the week! I'll definitely try to think of something!
Until my next post, remember to party hard, be amazing, and jam on, everyoneeee!! I'll try to be back next week instead of in two, XD!

A Couple New Tags, YAY!!

Hellooooooooo everyone! How are yoooou? :D
I'm in a good mood- perfect for a post, XD!

Anyways, sorry about my silence in the community lately. If I ever go quiet for like, a week, just know that there's a 95% chance it's because of school. 
I've had quizzes to study for, choir practices, and play practices as well (and I have to be there for ALL of them since I'm the lead role, eheheh!), and all that's been leaving me pretty tired after I leave school, and very unmotivated to post!

But hey, I'm back now, and I'm ready to do some tags!!
You guys have no idea how much I love tags. And quizzes. Well, the fun ones, not the school ones. XD!
But honestly, I love answering creative questions and such! Idk why... I'm quite odd. But you all knew that already, XD!

Oookay, I'll shut up and just get on with the post now, XD!
Or wait, okay, no, I can't shut up completely- I've still gotta talk.
Or type.
Whatever. XD!

Okay, NOW I'll get on with the post! (Gosh, I'm talkative today, XD!)


First, I was tagged by Sarah in her 6 question book tag, so let's answer those!

1.What book are you reading right now?
Well, I just finished book #1 of Wings Of Fire, called "The Dragonet Prophecy", and I loved it, so I'll be getting book #2 very, very soon from my school library! Technically, right now, I'm not reading anything new, but that'll most likely change this week!
2. What book did you previously read?
I guess I already answered this on the first one, XD!
Oh! I DID also finish reading The Fever Code, from the Maze Runner series, a few weeks ago, though!
3.What book are you planning on reading next?
Goodness, does my answer to the first question answer all of these or something? XD!
Like I said, Wings Of Fire, Book 2: The Lost Heir! YAY FOR SEAWINGS! XDD!
4. What series are you planning on reading next?
Well, I'm going to try and get through the whole Wings Of Fire series, but after that... hmm, I really don't know! Maybe I'll try the Heroes Of Olympus series, since Sarah suggested it?
5. What is your favorite book series?
Pft, you all know the answer to this question- WARRIORS!
Although the Maze Runner series in a close second, hehe!
6. Favorite book character?
WHAT?!
OUT OF, LIKE, EVERY BOOK I'VE EVER READ?!
GOODNESS SARAH, YOU PICKED A HARD QUESTION!!!
XDD! Actually though, this is a really good, thought-provoking question! Let me think...
Well, I like Spottedleaf from Warriors, as I've said before, but I also really like a lot of other Warriors characters, and Newt from The Maze Runner, and Clay and Tsunami from Wings Of Fire...
UHHHHHH...
You know what? This time, I think I'm gonna go with Finpaw from Warriors! He's such a playful and happy young cat, despite being seriously injured once, and the way he left everything behind to be in ThunderClan with Twigpaw was very, very sweet! I just find his character super cute- at least for now, because who knows who he'll be when he's a full-grown warrior? XD!
SORRY NEWT AND CLAY AND TSUNAMI AND SPOTTEDLEAF AND LEAFPOOL AND CROWFROST AND ALL OF YOU AWESOME CHARACTERS OUT THERE!!! YOU ALL ROCK AND THIS WAS SO HARD TO DECIDE ON!!!
Aaaaaand I'm talking to book characters.
XDDDD!


Anyways, thank you for that tag, Sarah! It was very fun! :D


Next... and last, XD, Ja's Trio Tag that she tagged me in a while back! Sorry it took me this long to do it, Ja! I kept forgetting, XD!
Let's goooo!



1. Share 3 random things you did in your life that you've never shared before
Oooh! Lemmie think...
1. My mom told me that, when I was super young, and my sister and brother hadn't been born, I would make her come into my room and play Littlest Pet Shops with me. XDD!
Oh dear... I have 0 ideas right now...
Umm...
2. When I was younger, I attempted to write an Animal-Jam based song for some reason, but, uh... that didn't turn out well at all. XD!
3. I've actually completely and downright refused to do a science experiment at school before.
Well, okay, it was last year... XD! Luckily, my teacher wasn't mad (he kinda found it funny and said it reminded him of his son, XD), so I didn't end up having to do it after all, and I didn't get in trouble either.
Doesn't sound too exciting at first, but trust me, that was completely out of character for me- I never refuse to do assignments- but I wouldn't do that particular thing then, and I still wouldn't do it now. 


2. Name your 3 favorite movie series
1. The Maze Runner series, no doubt. ;)
2. Darn. I actually haven't watched many movies SERIES at all so far. I suppose I could say Hunger Games? I've only watched the first movie so far, but I loved it, so sure, let's go with that. XD!
3. Okay, I'm out of ideas here, and I apologize. I need to get into more movies, ehehehe.
I'll just go ahead and say that I loved The Greatest Showman! Not a series, but I've got nothing else that I can think of, and it was just really fun to watch! XD!


3.  Name your 3 favorite places to go
1. The hangout.  
Hmm- well, I love going to the park, where I can just run around and enjoy nature and all that! 
XD, that sounded very childish, sorry.
2. Book stores. Of any kind, really. XD!
THEY'RE COZY AND HAVE BOOKS AND SOMETIMES STUFFED ANIMALS.
IT'S BASICALLY MY HOME. XDD!
3. Haha, well, I know this is an odd answer, but I love going to choir class at my school. Definitely the biggest perk about public school for me!


4. Name the top 3 smaller things you want to do in your life right now?
WOO, EASY- OH.
SMALLER THINGS.
Fine then, XD!
1. Get the second WOF book and the next Warriors book (when it comes out) and read them, XD!
2. Learn how to animate this summer!
3. Get tons of nature items on CS. XD




*Pants* Yay! After *pants* taking over an hour *pants* to write this *pants*, I'm finally done!

XD! Honestly though, you two, those were some fun questions to answer, and I thank you both for tagging me! As for MY tags, I'm letting anyone who wants to answer these questions go right ahead! 
Psh, it's totally not because I don't keep track of who's done it and who hasn't. Nope.




Alright, well, I gotta go! Hope you all enjoyed this post, and I'll see you in the next one, where I'll hopefully post Chapter 3 of Larry The Bunny! (Sorry it's taking so long to release chapters!)
Remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on, you guys! YOU ROCK!

Young Swirl's Strangest Moments!

Me: *Tries to sneak in past you guys*
You Guys: *Turns around* SWIRL!
Me: *Stops and doesn't move*
You Guys: SWIRL, WE- er, what are you doing?
Me: Um... you... can't see me?
You Guys: No, um, preeetty sure we can see you.
Me: Darn.
You Guys: Anyways, as we were saying... SWIRL, GOODNESS, WHY DID IT TAKE YOU THIS LONG TO ACTUALLY POST AGAIN?!
Me: Eheheheh...


Yeah, uh, sorry about that! I had quite a bit of stuff to do last week, and I've also just been kinda out of ideas lately.
But hey, guess what- it's a 5-day-weekend for me! It started on Thursday, but, uh, yeah! 
So POSTING TIME! XD!



First off, I suppose I'll start with showing you this Masterpiece I've been working on!

I know a couple of you know what this is, but for those of you that have no idea, this type of Masterpiece is called a Friendship Quilt! The original idea was made by Ocean8Froggy- basically, you design a Masterpiece that looks like a quilt, and all of them include borders with patterns, stitched hearts in the corners, your main animal and pet in the center, and your animal's paw prints in the top center with stitch marks around them too! The rest, like the colors and patterns, are entirely up to whoever makes it! A couple of us bloggers thought this was a great idea, so we went ahead and started making our own versions!
And, as you can see, that one up there is how mine looks so far! I have to say, I'm very proud of how my wolf turned out, and I even made it my new Blogger profile picture, as some of you may have already noticed, XD!

And, if anyone's wondering about the pattern I started on the right border, it's going to be an Owl City themed border, filled with music notes and pictures of things that were mentioned in Owl City songs! The wing is from Up All Night (although now that I think about it, it'd work better with On The Wing, XD!), the bug is from Fireflies, and the flower is from Plant Life (although he mentions flowers in plenty of his songs, XD!) Gonna add more soon!



Okay- now that we've gotten past that, how about we do something I've been wanting to do for a while now?
I'm going to be looking back at... *lowers voice to a whisper* 
Cringey beginner-blogger Swirl.
Know how I always say that you guys should NEVER look back at my super-old posts? This is the one time I'm encouraging it. XDD!

*Rubs hands together* Alright then! Prepare yourself!
By the way, the red underlined/circled/boxed parts in each picture are the parts I'm going to be referring to! 

 First off, seems Young Swirl was VERY excited to figure out the owl puzzle!
However, I'm not sure she thought about if OTHER people had figured it out on their own.
Favorite part: "YES FOLKS< (oops, that was a typo, haha!) YOU HEARD IT RIGHT!"
XDD!
 Okay, so in this one, Young Swirl seemed to realize "Oh, these are owls- they don't have hands!", so she decided that saying "out of wing" would be better.
*Facepalms and laughs*
I... I don't know what I was thinking in this. 😅
 *Cracks up*
Safer Internet Items? How on Earth would AJHQ make something like that?!
What items did I think would be released- a "Safer Internet Table" and "Safer Internet Chair" or something?
I need to draw this, guys. I need to make up and draw some "Safer Internet items".
XDDD!
 #1. Oh yes, that Heart Tree was TOTALLY Beta, wasn't it? Mhm, absolutely- the most Beta item of them all! *Nods*
#2. *Tries to keep from laughing*
I... *snickers* I'm pretty sure they've been to Aldan before, Young Swirl.
*Reads the red underlines part*
*Tilts head*
First... I think I spelled it "shirits". XDD!
And second, XD, it, uh, seems I was REALLY worried about sounding mean. I mean, it's a true fact, I guess- I apparently DID end up trading those shirts away for "Betas", but I guess I figured it sounding like scamming. Oops, ehehe!
 #1. OOHH NOOO, WE MUST ALL TAKE COVER!!
XD, I was such an odd child
#2. ACK NO DON'T DO PUNSSSS!! XD!
 WOW.
THAT WAS AN AMAZING APRIL FOOLS JOKE.
I'M SURE EVERYONE WAS ABSOLUTELY FOOLED.
XDD!
 #1. Wow, XD.
And it seems I loved to use "LOL" back then, huh?
#2. "Poo."
Great job- absolutely the best wording you could've used, Young Swirl.
*Shakes head* I'm so confused at how I changed so much, guys. XDD!
 *Gasps sarcastically* WHAT?! AJHQ WORKERS?! WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH THAT IDEA- THAT'S JUST CRAZY!
Yeah, um... Young Swirl wasn't exactly the smartest. XDD!
 Aaand just like that, its popularity immediately died... eheheh...
I guess I just really liked bouncy houses back then or something? *Shrugs* XD!
 O.O
*Facepalms*
*GASP*
LOOK YOU GUYS!!!
THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED!!
THIS IS HOW WE ENDED UP WITH THE VERY-ODD TRADITIONAL SWIRLSHINE INTRO WE HAVE TODAY!! :O
The original one, uh, wasn't very good though. XDD!




Aaaaanyways, that's all I've got for now! It's, uh, really late now... XD!
Until next time, remember to party hard, be kind, and jam on, and I'll see you guys later! 
*Salutes* XDD!
