Yeah, back to school is almost worse than not having a summer. Have you ever heard of a program called scratch? It's a program that lets you make your own mini-software/programs in a really simple way. I started using it a while back and you can really make just about anything you want with it. I put the link to their site below. I would suggest trying it, it's really good. I've made a tax calculator and a maze game as well as a school timeline. I have seen people make asteroids and galaga if you like classic games.
oh, that one.
I saw all the contestshippy ones at least ten times.
Anyway, try going to the Shippers Community if you wanna find some advanceshipping fans.
I'm also fans of PenguinShipping, and NegaiShipping
