Minecraft Crashing – Help!!

Hey, guys. Recently – the last couple of weeks, that is – I’ve been having issues with Minecraft and I wondered if any of you can help me.
Here’s the problem. I start Minecraft normally, clicking the launcher and clicking play. I usually get on Got PVP and try to play on my faction, but I’ll be playing just fine for maybe a minute at the most, and my computer crashes. The first time, I got 46 seconds of gameplay. (I timed it.) Just now, I tried to play and got around 15 seconds before it crashed. I’m running on a 2010 laptop and I know it’s not overheating, and I’m fairly sure that it’s an issue with the video card in my computer. I know the problem, but I have no solution. I’ve tried turning down the Minecraft graphics, but it doesn’t help. If you’ve had similar problems or have a way to fix it, PLEASE tell me!!


P.S. This means I won’t be playing much Minecraft until it’s fixed, so no updates on Minecraft gaming stuff and no progress on my faction. Sorry, guys.

Minecraft TFG Faction!

Hey, guys! Just for fun, I decided to start a faction on Minecraft for my followers. It’s on Then go to the factions section and ask for Myra_Magnificent. I’ll be on at 12:00 U.S. central time, but I’m actually on right now. Please comment your username below so I know who to invite.

P.S. Even if you don’t join today, I’ll keep the faction and keep playing on it. See you there.

Minecraft Skin Showcase (plus usable versions!)

Hey, guys! I have a lot of skins that I’ve made just for kicks, and in case I ever get a Planet Minecraft account, but I’ll probably never use any of them, so I figured I’d put them out here for you to use if you ever need a change of style.
Here’s how to change your skin. Go to Click on the button at the top that says “profile”. It may ask you to log in. Once you’ve logged in, click “choose file” and click the jumbled-up, tiny version of the skin you want to use. Click “change” and you’ve changed your skin!
I use 1.8 skins, but these will work without the snapshot, too. You might just have to wear some armor over them to hide the lack of detail without the second layer.
If you can’t figure out how to download it from the picture on the blog, right click it and click “save image”.

Here’s a human version of Sparkle Wingedlily from the AJ Story in her gardening outfit.
And here’s the download version.

This one is a random chick with neon green hair. I was testing shading, and neon green was the first color I hit on the slider.
There’s jumbled-up neon green haired girl.

This one’s a girl that looks ready to sit down and play Minecraft. I did a different hairstyle on this one, rather than the swept bangs that is the most popular style.
Downloadable version:

And the download:

A guy I made in an airplane flight. I used noise shading because it looked a little more masculine.
And here’s the download.

I probably have some more somewhere, but I do these on an app on my phone and so they get saved to my phone, and I dumped everything from my phone onto a storage USB thing. I was trying to download Rift – which didn’t work, by the way – and my iPhone storage was taking up no less that 18 gigabytes. I had enough room for a few Rifts after that.

Anyway, thanks for reading! I hope you like my skins!

Summer 😛

UPDATE: A lot of these are posted on my Planet Minecraft account. It’s probably a whole lot easier to download them there.

~Animal Jam: 1 Year Anniversary Special!~

Hey, guys!!! Today is my first anniversary of my time on Animal Jam. It’s almost unbelievable how much can change in a year. Looking back on it, it definitely feels like I’ve been playing AJ for that long, but that night with Flora on Skype feels like it was two months ago.
My story starts one June night, not far into summer vacation. I was getting extremely bored, so I texted my cousin. The conversation got deleted quite a while ago, but it was something like “Hey”. So I got on Skype with her, and she told me about this cool new video game she’d found. She said she discovered it on YouTube and thought it looked really cool. She shared her screen, and I saw a wolf named Flora Cottoncloud in a virtual world-like landscape. She said the game was called Animal Jam, and demonstrated with a game of Falling Phantoms. I think she got either 4th or 2nd place. She showed me around the place, Jamaa, and said that she was thinking about getting a membership. She showed me a couple of other games, which I remember to be Overflow and Temple of Trivia. I hadn’t even played yet, and I was already addicted. I asked my mom about getting an account, and she said she’d think about it.
It was nearly a week later when she said yes. I started squealing and jumping around and texting Flora. I named my account Amersonneawesome after a story I’d written with my friend. I got on Animal Jam, buddied Flora – a.k.a. CelestiaRings – and decorated my first animal. It looked something like this.nostalgiaforblog
I claimed I didn’t like the girly eyes, and even though Juniper was a girl, she “just had short eyelashes like my mom”.
That day, I frolicked around, decorated my first den, and kicked everyone’s tail in Temple of Trivia. I did the exact same the next day. And the next.
A few weeks in, I decided it would be more fun with more friends, so I called Amber and told her that she needed to check out Animal Jam. She made her account – Rtangel781 – and a tiger named Little Spirittiger and got just as hooked as me. We played lots of AJ over the course of the next few weeks. In that time I had amassed quite a bit of money, Flora got a membership, and the diamond shop had appeared. Flora was furious. She’d gotten tail armor before it appeared, and it became non-rare. I was thrilled, since arctic wolves and snow leopards – which I had been a huge fan of – were now available to the general public. During this time, the hamster pets also became non-member.
The Adventures came out. I was annoyed that there was only one, and it was members-only, and the map was very confusing, but thankfully Amber sometimes let me get on her account to play.
I went on vacation to Missouri. While I was gone, Amber got a membership and phoenix armor had come out. I got home and found that another of Amber’s and my friends had joined under the name Bigears7721. Within a week, she’d gotten a membership, and I was left as the only one of our AJ-playing group as a non-member. Amber helped me campaign with my mom about getting a membership, and on June 25th, 2013, I got my first membership.
It was a mess. I had tons of animals, pets, and dens, and my den inventory was nearly full. My non-member den was flourishing, and I even had my birthstone on a desk. I spent lots of time at the 4th of July party, and bought lots of phoenix armor. Sometime during this era, Flora convinced me that Juniper looked better with the girl eyes, and I finally changed them after being cornered by a bunch of girls at the dinner party.
For the whole month, I couldn’t get a koala. It was the only non-diamond animal I didn’t have besides the rhinos, giraffes, and elephants, and it was rubbing me the wrong way. The koalas returned with Kimbara Outback exactly three days before my month had been used up.
Then my membership ran out. When Bigears, Amber, and Flora all renewed their memberships, I got extremely annoyed. I asked for a membership for my birthday, and ended up with four months – three from Flora and one from Amber. Actually, from Amber, I got a picture of Greely and a note that said to get on AJ when I got home. The next weekend, I received a three-month gift card from Flora, and used my ten diamonds for an arctic wolf: Sparkle Wingedlily. I did my best to make her look like one of those snooty ones in Falling Phantoms that everyone wants to lose, but she ended up looking exactly how she is in the AJ Story – meek, shy, and a good gardener.
Not too long after that, at the beginning of the school year, I got two more friends – Annabelle and her brother – to join AJ. They both bought about a year’s worth of gift cards and ended up very filthy stinking rich.
Lots and lots of things happened then. Jamaaliday came and went, as did Night of the Phantoms and the Hive adventure, which was like another birthday present. I had just enough weekly diamonds to get a snow leopard, so I did just that. On January 26th, my second membership expired, and I almost left AJ. Flora had been too caught up in school to play much anymore, and Amber was in debt so badly with her mom that she couldn’t buy another membership. I was on and off of Animal Jam – playing about once every other week – and ended up missing St. Patrick’s Day, April Fools’ Day, and Valentine’s Day on AJ. I felt bad, but I decided I was finally getting tired of it, just like my mom had warned. I made the mistake of half-quitting and sent Annabelle and her brother a rare bow and a rare top hat before deciding I wanted to continue playing. I still almost never got on.
Apparently, Annabelle’s brother was thinking the same thing. He quit Animal Jam for good and told Annabelle to give me his account, truckerman24. I was overjoyed, and, thanks to my brand-spanking-new 167 days of membership, I kept playing. To this day, I have never gotten another rare top hat.
The Forgotten Desert adventure came out. I finally began looking back on everything that had happened and felt really cool. I was going to be one of the old members now. Amber did a big car wash with her family and made enough money to buy another membership. Shortly after that, Annabelle quit, too, and this time Amber got her account.
The hyenas came out. I was beginning to wish that I could go back to that June night on Skype with Flora. I missed the newbie days. Just this past Monday, Flora bought another membership gift card at Target and started playing again. Flora could finally wear her spiked collar again, and I was glad, because the locket just didn’t look right on her.
That brings us to the present. Here I am, typing this out and thinking about the fact that I’ve been playing AJ for a whole year. Three hundred and sixty-five days. I can’t believe it.


Anyway, thanks for reading with me on this special day!! You’re awesome!!

Summer ❤ 😀 🙂 😛 XD


Hey, guys.  Today I will be tearing down a rumor that’s seriously getting on my nerves:  the rumor that opening the chests in the Forgotten Desert lessens your chance of getting rares.

What proof is there of this??  Sure, it gives you a boatload of lag, but it’s playable like that.  Amber opens every chest she gets and then calls everyone else to her to open it, and it doesn’t affect the prizes at all.

I could be wrong.  I haven’t contacted AJHQ about this, but I am almost completely sure it’s fake.  An example of my luck with the chests:  Animal Jam:  Awesome Day.

Seriously, people.  Just a few minutes ago I saw a girl ragequit because someone opened a chest.  It’s stupid and pointless.  I’ve gotten an arctic hood, rare spiked collar, a rare beard, and a bunch of other random rares while getting every chest I find.  If you don’t believe me:


You can’t honestly say that you get non-rare stuff if you get the chests, can you?

Anyway, that’s today’s RUMOR SQUASH.  I may do some more RUMOR SQUASHing if I ever find another RUMOR to SQUASH.



Thanks for reading, lol.

Summer 🙂
