  2. GREETINGS REBELLION!! I am Wraiven but those whom know me well call me Mitch Jnr. I have been working on leveling up my life and developed my quest log in a way to grow, not only for me but for the benefit of those all over the world. Since I can remember I have always been a very giving person and gathered joy from tasks that not only helped me be a better man, but also to help others grow too. Since my Father (Mitch Snr) passed away started really struggling with depression and anxiety in recent years and it's truly effected my growth and attitude towards what I always believed of myself. It could be chemical or it could just be my mind trying to avoid the pain of failing... But that's not gonna happen! Since joining the Rebellion I decided to dedicate a whole year to trying to change some lives and it's really had an Impact on me too. 17 has always been my favourite number soooo I decided in 2017 I was going to do a Charity Challenge called 'Songs and Smiles' to help raise funds for Kids with Cancer, Mental Illness and Poverty/Famine. This requires me to do a song a day to bring smiles and provoke thought/nostalgia every single day and then people could share and possibly donate if they could. A simple premise but alot of people seem to like it. So far we have raised over $5000 and had 250,000 views on Youtube. My Dad always wanted to help kids with cancer because when he had it he always beleived he had lived and they deserved a chance to aswell, so I am doing this all in his memory and I hope all of the rebellion can join me too and become a SMILE SAVIOUR!

  3. **Idea totally inspired by Cataleya - Roadmap. ***New PS4 Icon edited by Niilack on Reddit. Thank you! Could not find that image anywhere! I am a gamer who loves to Platinum games. =^_^= If you've seen any of my monthly challenges, this is abundantly clear. I loved @Cataleya's idea of a Roadmap so much, that I decided to make this year like a game that I need to play through and platinum. There will be bronze trophies, silver, gold, and the beautiful Platinum. Horizon Zero Dawn is the title because it's the game I am most looking forward too this year. *I hope it's not a disappointment* EDIT: It was not a disappointment!! Yay! ROAD MAP Overview: Estimated trophy difficulty: Personal Estimate: 10/10 (Platinum Difficulty Rating) Offline trophies: 26 (13, 7, 5, 1) Online trophies: 0 Approximate amount of time to platinum: 365 Days (Estimated Time to Platinum) Minimum number of playthroughs: 1 Number of missable trophies: All of them since there is a time limit on this game. Glitched trophies: 3 District 12, I Volunteer As Tribute, No Hacks Required Does difficulty affect trophies?: N/A Do trophies stack?: Yes. Do cheat codes disable trophies?: N/A Introduction: This game is going to be rough. It's about improving your eating habits, flexibility, knowledge, cooking skills, career, gaming, and weight/strength. There are no cheats available and the difficulty is set. Once you unlock a trophy, the image will appear that way we all can follow along and keep track of how you're doing. Updates, Patches, DLCs Warning: This game is continually updating, patching, and sometimes unexpected DLC is added. So I will keep this guide as updated as possible by editing this post and labeling accordingly. Thank you for being patient. Step One: Play through the monthly challenges. Completing and passing those should lead in quite nicely into achieving the other trophies. Trophy Guide: Nerd Fighter You finished the year and met all of your goals! Complete and earn all of the trophies Is This Easy Mode? Platinum/Play Through 6 Games on the PS3. Heavy Rain, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Red Dead Redemption, The Last of Us (can be done with remastered version on the PS4), Uncharted 1-3 (Can be done with the remastered version on PS4), LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (can be done with the PS4 version) and Fairytale Fights are some options right now. Game options could change with an upcoming patch. Lilmissbri's Update (Jan 18): I have platinum-ed 2/6 (Heavy Rain and Harry Potter) games here so far. Good Progress! Progress Update (Jan 27): Beyond: Two Souls is completed and platinum is obtained. Progress Update (Feb 11): LEGO Marvel Super Heroes plat is obtained! Progress Update (Jan 27): The Last of Us is finally platinum-ed. No Hacks Required! Play through Horizon Zero Dawn, Borderlands, Fallout 4, and The Witcher 3. This trophy is glitched. When one does not like of the games fundamentally, then it doesn't seem to affect obtaining the trophy. As long as the player throughly tries. Odd. Progress Update (Apr 10): I have platinized Horizon Zero Dawn! Huzzah!! Are You Even Trying? Platinum Rise of the Tomb Raider and Ether One on the PS4. - Unlocked February 17th This is time consuming, but completely doable. Progress Update (Jan 18): I have finished RotTR.

Some alcohol, but it was in celebration of a gig or anniversary.

One Ring To Find Them Get your ring cleaned. - Unlocked May something or other. Fairly simple. Just go to the store and get it cleaned.

  6. This topic will serve me as a journal for 2017 GET BUSY LIVING OR GET BUSY DYING [2017] 1.0 INTRODUCTION Fundamently i'm an uninteresting person. I lack friends and a good group to having fun with. I need to change. Life isn't meant to be lived like this. Now, from 2-3 months i'm changing my mentality, my healt and my goals but i never put down anything on paper or set a definite goals. Time to change. I only have one life and i don't intend to throw it away. Let's begin 1.2 FITNESS PLAN First of all i need to keep my running habits, i have lost already 2kg without changing my nutrition. So, the goal is to run / do cardio 5 times a week. By the end of the year i will be able to run straight for 45m, burning up atleast 450kcal on the treadmill. Weekly increase by 1 minute of jogging time. Weight training : something i absolutely hate and suck at it. This is why i want to change, right now i'm using a 7kg dumbells (15 lbs) which is absolutely bad since i'm 250lbs x 1.90m. By the end of the year i will increase the weight of my dumbells to 16kg (35 lbs ),being able to perform 3 x 12 perfect reps of curls and hammer curls. 1.3 NUTRITION Well, i don't know where to start. I eat a incredible ammount of calories, i think something along 5-6k a day! Also i eat a lot of fruit, let's say not less than 2kg a day. So, one of the first thing to do for me is to track my caloric intake and limit the fruit to 3 pieces a day. I will set up a better goal later. 1.4 GET A LIFE YOU NOOB! I'm scared by this. i mean, everything i wrote previusly can be accomplished without embarassing myself but rebuild a social life is something i really fear. So i dont even know what goals i can set. Let's say, spend more time with my ( few ) friends, call my university friends and..... i have no idea. Join a gym? A dance class? Smile more at people, even strangers. For now this is scary enought. Ah, of course spend time with the rebellion, maybe i will find friends here 1.5 "MONEY IS ALL I WANT" This is very simple and easy. Get 12.000€ in the bank. I should resolve this in 8 month. This lead to another important thing : buy a car. A cheap, used car which will take me everywhere 1.6 THE ARTIST I like the idea of drawning, but i'm a terrible artist. So let's make it simple : draw 250 things. Now i need to sleep. I will edit / update this later for sure. I Thank in advance anyone who will support and i wish you good luck on the path!
  7. 16: Returning to the root Be completely empty. Be perfectly serene. The ten thousand things arise together; in their arising is their return. Now they flower, and flowering sink homeward, returning to the root. The return to the root is peace. Peace: to accept what must be. to know what endures. In that knowledge is wisdom. Without it, ruin, disorder. To know what endures is to be openhearted, magnanimous, regal, blessed, following the Tao, the way that endures forever. The body comes to its ending, but there is nothing to fear.
