- Surprised I'm still in the game? Yes, I am. It's all thanks to the 50.5% of you who voted to save me!
Surprised I'm up? No, I am not.
For a while now, it's been tough losing the people you trust and work closely with. First tdan13, then brosky17, then Fredcrugar;it became easier and easier for the cast to put me up every other round to keep themselves safe for another day change. It's been hard to gain any leverage, but I've slowly gained some ground with every other round that I'm /not/ on the block.
I always join Stars at random, hoping to form new, lasting relationships that I can carry out through the game and afterwards. I am not an active member on Tengaged, and have never had anyone I could say had my back 100% - I had to put trust in people I barely knew. At this point in the game, we're down to the final six, and I cannot discredit anyone's game play. We have all made it to this point for a reason. I also definitely cannot say that I have played a perfect game by any means - far from it - but, I have rolled with the punches and played with the hand I was dealt.
Believe me when I say this, but after staying in the last poll, it lit a fire under me. I have not once thought that I would be able to survive the polls I was put into, and thus have never relied on my popularity. It might not seem like it, but I have worked endlessly, approached everyone and talked to them. I have been sincere with every person in the game and meant every word I said - game play aside.
This truly has been an arduous yet fulfilling journey. It's both an underdog story and a dream come true. All I'm missing is that fairytale ending, right?
I hope you, Tengaged, still believe I can turn this game around and win it. I appreciate any and all saves =) No matter what, I will keep my positive disposition and be proud of the way I carried myself through the game. Good luck, Daniel!

- Thank you to the 57.9% of Tengaged who chose to save me for 10th, and I am now regretfully up again for 8th. I somewhat feel as if I have let you all down, because I truly believed that I was beginning to turn the game around. Unfortunately, I could not appeal to some of my cast mates' rationales, and I believe that this nomination set of Me/Fred was not the right move for everyone's individual games.
Stars is all about making the right deals with the right people at the right times, and I think I have done an exceptional job at doing that. However, this only holds true if everyone tries to play with this mind set. Personally, sitting in the poll box is such an emotionally draining experience, and going up every other poll does not help. It starts to tug away at your spirit. I'm content with the way I have played this game thus far; I changed it up a little from how I have played in the past and I can't say if it paid off or not - I'm guessing not.
I've never been one for gimmicks, and I'm not about to start for the sake of garnering support. I realize it's been proven to be a means of winning Stars, but I want to be able to succeed without them. Surviving this poll is going to be a looong shot, but anything can happen! Right, Ellie?
Thank you for everyone's continual support, because it truly means a lot to me. Again, I appreciate any and all saves.
PS - I apologize if it seems like I'm carrying a defeatist attitude, but my future in this Stars is looking pretty grim.

- Well, seeing as my blog was poorly received last time...I'm going to continue writing them :D. These blogs are a good way for me to vent my feelings, and I would go little more insane without them.
First and foremost, I have to thank the 52.1% of Tengaged for saving me, and I guess, I want to thank the other 47.9% for voting in the poll. Like I said, tdan13 is an awesome dude, and if I saw him in the poll box, I would save him too!
I'm up again. Crumby feeling. And it's easy to get away with nominating me again so soon because of my lack of ability to survive polls. Meaning that if I stay this time, and get nominated again later on, I'm out. This serves as nothing but motivation to try even harder, because I'm /not/ out and I won't give up until I am. Even though this game has been getting incrementally harder each round - especially, losing my two closest allies back to back - I don't have anyone I can turn to. I feel more alone each day change. But, that does not mean that I doubt my ability to play this game on my own.
There really is no one you can blame but yourself for ending up in the poll box. I am a victim of wishful thinking. I give everyone the benefit of the doubt - perhaps, not the best thing to do in a game of Stars, but I'm human. And, if there is one thing that I have learned from all my previous Stars experiences, is that if you fail the first time, you're not going to succeed the second time by trying to do the same thing.
Again, I appreciate any and all saves. I hope that those who support me will continue to support me, and those who didn't to know that it's never too late to hop on the bandwagon!
tl;dr - These blogs are annoying, I know! This dude is still trying, and he believes he can win it because of all the #believers who believe in him.
