I’m going to start using ‘Read More’ cuts on these entries because they can get pretty long at times. Like now.
All posts tagged introspection
★彡 I beat Dragon Age 2 a few days ago. I was a warrior the first time around, so I am going to replay as a mage. That should make the plot a lot more interesting. Not that replaying really matters. Anders is still going to ruin my life again…with his anger-induced possessions and love of cats and unshaven pony-tailed face. Ugh, fuck off, Anders.
☆彡 *slowly teaches Mark to stop asking my permission for everything* (LOL)
Seriously, nothing gives me joy like Mark buying things and going places without seeking my approval first. Yes, I understand that his heart is in the right place, but…he’s 28 years old. It’s kind of depressing for a 28 year old to have to get permission from a 26 year old to do shit, you know? I don’t even let 60 year olds tell me what to do better yet people younger than me. Then again, I am the type of person who hates being ordered around (unless I’m getting paid to or I have immense respect for the person giving orders), so I value independence and personal space a lot. I never want to be in a position where I am forced to strip someone of independence and space every human being deserves. Oh well. He will learn. He is learning. That’s good enough for now.
★彡 Glad to see that Rey Mysterio is back. Sadly, that’s pretty much all I care about in WWE right now.
☆彡 I don’t know why I wait until December to hang up lights. I’m just going to string them around my bedroom and leave them there all year. Also, I have yet to own a tree that wasn’t green, so I’m going to get a blue or white tree this year.
★彡 Man, the ASOIAF fans who haven’t read the books yet are in for several headfucks next season. The purple wedding alone is going to be *in Zack Ryder’s voice* siiiiiiiick (…wait….what am I doing? I hate Zack Ryder). Anyway, just a few more months, ASOIAF fandom. Almost there.
☆彡 My blowdryer decided to explode on me and then make a Silent Hill-esque siren noise afterwards. That wasn’t terrifying at all. Luckily, there was no fire. It was just loud and smoky.
★彡 I plan to get A Link Between Worlds very soon. I haven’t gotten around to it because I have a pile of books on my desk, and I’ve been going through them at breakneck speed. Finally. I should be all caught up within the next week or so…book-wise anyway. My gaming pile is still pretty pathetic.
☆彡 The worst feeling in the world is when you catch yourself doing something despicable and suddenly you question everything about yourself. I am by no means a goody-two shoes. My need to constantly explore new things is to blame for most of that. But there are definitely some lines I never cross, particularly lines that involve hurting others. I can live with hurting myself but not others. The truth is that I am a completely different person when I am in the middle of a panic attack. While I am in that mode, self-preservation is my only priority. Everything and everyone else stops mattering. That doesn’t change the fact that selfish is selfish. I don’t believe for a second that this part of me is impossible change. I just…need to put myself in panic-inducing situations until I learn to have complete control of myself during them. Until then, I am a dumb loser during 50% of my life. Whomp-whomp.
★彡 The things I am hearing about the XBox One are…tragic. The XBox 360 has been so pleasant for me that I hoped that the XBox One would be a worthy upgrade of it. Meh. I guess it is high time I got back to Sony anyway. The last time I owned a Sony console was back in 2004 or so when my PS2 broke. I have nothing against Sony. XBox just had a better selection of games these past few years, and games that were once Sony exclusives became multiplatform. This time around there are important-ass exclusives like Drakengard 3, Final Fantasy XV, and Kingdom Hearts 3 that I have to look out for. Also, there are some old Sony exclusive titles like Chrono Cross and a few Final Fantasy titles that I would love to download. So, a Playstation 4 is a definite for me. It’s just a matter of when I save up $400.
☆彡 The thing I hate most about my stories is that my characters have so much potential, yet they always end up the same one-dimensional carbon copy of the last character. I don’t spend enough time really fleshing them out. It’s easy to say: “this one is laid-back” or “this one is energetic”, but actually putting details into a character like pet peeves, addictions, allergies, fruitless dreams, poignant memories–that takes real effort. Effort I seldom give. For now, I am going to stop working on plots and drawings, and start working on those little things. I also need to work on more characters outside the main characters. Supporting characters don’t get enough credit for the life they give to stories. They are just that: support. I need to remember this! Well, I’m not going to worry too much about NaNoWriMo at this point. It is damn near impossible to meet the word count goal so late in the game, and my head isn’t really into it this year. I just want to crack open my Mythos binder and contribute more to it than fancy costumes. LOL
★彡 It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia gives me life. I have never laughed so hard in my life.
☆彡 I am currently working on a way to modify my bo staff. I’m in the sketching and tossing crumpled paper across the room phase right now. Not fun…but turning my bo staff into a Final Fantasy like weapon is going to be sweeeet. I thought about turning it into a lance, but as often as that thing topples over I don’t think it’s a good idea to add a blade to the end of it. LOL. I’m just going to stick with a basic staff. Right now I am set on something between Yuna’s starting staff and her Nirvana staff. I want to name my staff “Phantasmagoria”…because it’s my favorite word. Yes, I know I’m a colossal loser. Leave me alone. 😐
★彡 I’m glad that Nier is finally getting the respect it deserves. Thanks Game Informer for pointing out what a masterpiece it is.
Also, fuck what the Nier haters said.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and please be careful if you participate in Black Friday.

[ AJ’s reaction to meeting Lita when she was a kid. Q__Q ]
★彡 Every time I progress in a game, a new game winds up on my lap. HOW. I’m not complaining. Whether a game is free or 50+% off, it is still a good deal at the end of the day. Right now, this is my current playlist:
- The Witcher 2 – Almost done
- Magic: The Gathering – Duel of the Planeswalkers – It’s free with an XBox Gold membership right now, and it is great.
- Assassin’s Creed 2 – …Was also free, but like two months ago. Haven’t really touched it since.
- Scott Pilgrim vs The World – My nephew managed to beat it all the way to the final boss…then it froze on him. I felt so bad for him because no child should have to live the agony of a game locking up. Still, he got a lot farther than I ever did. 😛
- Pokemon Black 2 – I just got past the first gym leader, so there is still a long way to go.
Of course, I have other games to worry about, but they’re not really on my radar right now. I would like to perfect NieR some time this weekend since that’s probably the only game I am capable of perfecting in one weekend. Everything else will take a while.
☆彡 Every person has a different level of comfort with sexuality, and there is nothing wrong with any of those variations. How much or how little a person wears does not have anything to do with their level of self-confidence. Fashion is a personal choice. It is not a president. You don’t get to vote on it. I don’t know why this is so difficult to understand.
★彡 NaNoWriMo is right around the corner. I have been writing like crazy for Mythos, but I still have no intention of submitting that story to anything or anyone. Not even my dA. So, I’ll have to start from scratch. Right now I am playing with the idea of a huntress/detective, and have this fantasy mystery thing. I’ll see how it goes.
☆彡 I wish I had the ability to shut off certain senses. For example, if I don’t want to listen to something I can just turn my ears off, or if I don’t want to smell something I can just shut off my nose. That would be awesome. Let’s get on top of that, science.
★彡 “WWE is not real,” you say after I express the slightest emotion towards it. After smiling smugly, you turn on your favorite fictional TV show and display IRL reactions to it.
(Seriously, people who say things like: “[Obviously fake thing] is not real” make me want to punch them in the throat. First off all, no shit, Sherlock. Secondly, just because something isn’t real doesn’t mean you can’t react to it. If you think everyone should only react to real things then turn off your TV, put down your game controller, close your books, and just stare at people all day.)
☆彡 Speaking of WWE, I miss my past athleticism. I miss climbing, jumping, running, cartwheeling, backflipping, walking on my hands, etc. It kind of sucks now that I get exhausted from the simplest things. I am still fighting hard to get to that point. I don’t sit around keeping count of how many times I slip up. What’s the point? Even the best athletes mention how often they lose compared to how often they win. They end up winning because they never give up. I am the same way. I may not have much to show for it right now, but I am proud of myself for getting up every morning and saying: “Let’s go!” even if the last day sucked immensely. I am never giving up on being strong again. Until I can return to doing 50 push-ups without breaking a sweat, my work is never done. That is my mentality.
★彡 Mark and I got into a show called Whodunnit, and it’s really interesting. The core of it is your run-of-the-mill elimination-based reality show, but it involves solving murder mysteries. Long explanation short, there are 13 guests and one of them is a killer. Every week, the killer murders a guest in the house, and the other guests must gather clues to find out how the murder happened. The two people with the crappiest theories on how the murder occurred end up “scared” rather than “spared”, and one of them ends up being murdered. Sometimes multiple murders happen. Blah blah blah, the guests must solve that murder, etcetera, etcetera. To be honest, the season finale was pretty anticlimactic, but the build up itself was very good. We were hooked. We’re crossing our fingers for a Season 2. The show really reminds me of Dangan Ronpa with adults in a mansion rather than kids in a school, so I am definitely interested in more.
☆彡 I feel like I’m the only person who hates having their hair touched. I don’t even like salons because the thought of someone touching my hair for hours at a time really bothers me. Then again, I don’t like being touched anywhere so…that makes sense.
★彡 My first reaction to Ben Affleck being announced as Batman was “let’s see how this goes”, and I haven’t budged since then. I was not happy with his performance as Daredevil (I LOVE DAREDEVIL AND HIS MOVIE WAS NOT EVEN RIGHT), but that could be blamed on the writer and/or director. So, I repeat, let’s see how this goes. Honestly, the first time I heard that Heath Ledger would play The Joker I got really nervous. I pretty much stayed nervous until I saw The Dark Knight and came to the conclusion that he did the best rendition of The Joker. Yes, I even liked him more than Jack Nicholson. I digress. The same may happen with Ben Affleck. It is not a physical thing at all. Ben Affleck, like Bruce Wayne, is dark-haired and handsome. It really isn’t that hard to find someone who looks like Bruce. What matters is the acting. Ben Affleck is a great actor outside of his one superhero role (that I know of), so…it could have just been bad luck. Time will tell. I’m not losing hope, and I’m definitely not signing any petitions to boot him from the film. Those are just sad.
☆彡 There are some foods that sound delicious in theory but taste horrible in actuality. “Stuffed” foods are a major one for me. Eating stuffed foods comes with a 50% chance of me enjoying it and a 50% chance of me throwing up all over the place. Risky, risky.
★彡 Requiem For a Dream made me go from avoiding drugs to wanting to curl into a ball the moment drugs are mentioned.
☆彡 I found a program for making visual novels, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to use it to make
inappropriate dating sims.
★彡 MY LIFE IS COMPLETE. THANK YOU BASED TOEI.
There isn’t much else to add. Currently, all of my free time is spent on a steady Hulu, Netflix, writing, drawing, and video game rotation. So, that’s all I’m really up to. Fun, fun, fun.
That’s about it. >_>

☆彡 First thing first, the 26th birthday. It was a blast. Despite having to spend the start of it dealing with emission and car tags, Mark and I managed to make it enjoyable. Afterwards, we saw Pacific Rim. I really liked it. It was like a 2-hour live action anime about mechs and giant monsters. If that is right up your alley then you should definitely see it . Um…where was I? Ah, yes. After the movie we had lunch. After lunch we did some browsing in various stores. After browsing we had tres leche cake, watched movies, and made Japanese-style curry for dinner. Overall, it was exactly how I like my birthdays: peaceful, fun, private, and filled with my favorite things. I hope all of my birthdays are like this. As Mark said, my birthday is technically the start of the year for me, so I hope to see more good things until this time around in 2014.
★彡 I am loving the free Assassin’s Creed 2 DL from XBL along with all the recent updates from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Nookling Junction upgraded to a bigger 24-hour store, Sabel (such a cutie ;.;) gave me permission to use QR codes–I am now dressed as Bioshock Infinite‘s Elizabeth thanks to that, and a new shoe store opened. Let’s just say that I’m glad I’m not even half the fashionista IRL that I am in ACNL. I spent roughly $1,000 bells on shoes alone. That does not translate well in reality.
☆彡 Speaking of Bioshock Infinite, I finally finished the game. That ending was insane! At least to me. I was not expecting that at all. Veeeeeery good ending. And also a very, very, very good game. This game is worthy of all the praise it receives. It is amazing! /fangirling I can’t wait to get my own copy so I can avoid the headache of rushing and returning it promptly. 1999 mode without any Dollar Bill vending machines is most likely my next step in BI. Let’s see how that goes.
★彡 Interracial relationships are not for thin-skinned people. I cannot press that enough. You have to accept early on that racist comments will come, and they will not stop coming. Furthermore, these comments will come from people of all races, ages, genders, backgrounds, etc. They will even come from your family and friends. These individuals may even be multiracial themselves (this has happened to us), or in their own interracial relationship (this has also happened to us). That is why it is so important for both parties in an interracial relationship to be tough. More than tough, you have to train yourself to not become angry about it. You’ll only damage your sanity on behalf of some ignorant lowlife. It’s an awful trade to make. One thing Mark and I learned over the years is to just laugh at people like that. They’re clowns if they honestly believe their 1913 mentality will translate well in 2013.
Spoiler alert: it doesn’t.
☆彡 I am entirely obsessed with the Dangan Ronpa series right now. I found the LP archive for both DR1 and DR2, and I pretty much went on a nonstop reading spree soon after. Of course, I am following the anime as well. Even though I know what’s going to happen, it’s neat to see it in animation. I heard the games were getting localized, too, but I’ll have to see if that’s true. I’m excited either way. On a side note, I really want Monobear’s ability to push a button and punish people. Where can I buy that? Home Depot?
★彡 That Superman/Batman movie announcement. *falls down* But also that lack of Wonder Woman announcements. *stands up and walks away*
☆彡 If you didn’t know, Adobe is giving out free copies of Photoshop and other programs. It’s straight from the company as opposed to some seedy background website. So, get it while you can! Also, the ASOIAF boxset is on sale on Amazon. Get that too! (I promise I’m not a saleswoman for Adobe or GRRM or something)
★彡 Being held back by own skill level makes me want to ram my head into a brick wall until there is nothing left for my neck to hold. Yeah, yeah, I know. Practice makes perfect. I’m working on it…
☆彡 I am beginning to hate sleep. On some days, I welcome a little nap here and there, but on most days I feel like sleep is just wasting time. Being tired feels like being nagged. I only go to bed when I find that my mind can’t do anything else but think about going to bed. My better days are the days when I don’t sleep at all. I am trying to train myself to live off of naps scattered throughout the day. A little four hours at nights. An hour around lunchtime (since I never seem to be hungry around lunch hour). An hour or two around evening. Before I know it, I’d have accumulated 6-8 hours of sleep. It’s a tricky experiment…but an experiment I’ll try nonetheless.
★彡 After reading Equus, I am 100% sure that I have to see the play now. Another thing to add on my “I Should Do This But I Probably Won’t Because My Day-To-Day Habits Are More Comfortable” list. I will say this though. If the message of Equus is what Dr. Dysart spoke about when he said he envied Alan (basically, he believes it is better to have psychotic levels of passion over monotony), I will have to politely disagree with that message. Perhaps it is the fact that “moderation, modesty, and mercy” is my most important mantra for life, but I strongly believe that everything needs a balance. You can be religious without being a zealot. You can like horses without sexualizing them. Conversely, in the case of Dysart, you can be a part of a marriage that isn’t infuriatingly dull. This is why I do not like extremes in the first place. In some cases, yes, extremes are necessary, but choosing a harmful choice when the middleground is harmless seems…unnecessary. Then again, it is possible that I’m completely overlooking something obvious due to my bad habit of over-analyzing the littlest things. For example, it is likely that Dysart is insane himself; therefore, questioning his logic would be illogical. His dream may be an indicator of that. It is not the violent aspect of it that hints at his possible insanity, but the obvious connection it has to his profession as a child psychologist. He feels (and clearly stated this) as if every time he cures patients like Alan of their madness, he is ridding them of their passion–that same passion he yearns for in his marriage and life in general. Eh…once more, I’m probably over-analyzing. So, I will just end this by saying that I enjoyed the book/play, and I look forward to other interpretations of it. Yes…let’s end this. It’s dragging on. LOL
☆彡 I am annoyed by individuals who know that a relationship is either never going to happen or is already over, yet continue to force it. Even if I am not a part of an ordeal like that, I still want to scream: “Move on already!” Maybe this is why my pity towards Jorah Mormont went from existent to non-existent so quickly. It is clear that he has strong feelings for Dany, but the fact that he just won’t leave her alone is starting to get on my nerves. I suppose the main reason why this is a pet peeve of mine is the arrogance. It does take a lot of nerve to listen to someone say “This relationship isn’t going to happen” or “This relationship is done”, and reply with: “Yes, it is! You’ll see! I’ll show you! You just don’t know any better! You’ll change your mind because I’m good for you and you know it!” It just completely disrespects someone who has the right to say “no”. I have a strong feeling that Jorah is going to drive himself over the edge in the end (because sleeping with prostitutes that look like Dany and kidnapping Tyrion to “please” Dany isn’t over-the-edge enough?). I hope GRRM doesn’t end up romanticizing this type of behavior the way romance stories do. The whole following-someone-across-the-globe-to-publicly-declare-your-love bullshit really needs to stop. It just gives men, especially, the horrible idea of stalking women who aren’t interested in them because they believe women always say the opposite of what they really want. Some women may meet that description, but most of them do not. When a woman is done with you, she is done. Stalking isn’t cute. It’ll just end up getting you tossed in jail. Or, since Jorah is a part of the ASOIAF series, he’ll likely end up dead for it.
Death by dragon.
Drogon (and/or Viserion and/or Rhaegal): “Stay away from my mom, nerd.” *barbeques*
….Something like that…
★彡 Oh, yeah. I found out today that some commenter complained to Neil Gaiman that GRRM won’t write his book faster, and Neil Gaiman told that commenter that GRRM isn’t his bitch. Yes, Mr. Gaiman. Yes. Seriously, though. If you want quality stories/art, you need to give creators all the time they need. Otherwise, you end up with trite crap that you’ll surely end up nagging about later. Which is essentially what Neil Gaiman pointed out. I just think some fans have a hard time accepting that they do not own the creator or the fandom itself. That world was created by someone else, it belongs to someone else, and the opportunity to share it is just that…an opportunity. It is not a right. Then again, commenters like that remind me of those kids who came to your house and threw a tantrum because they couldn’t control your toys. Brats. They’re just brats.
☆彡 As much as I hate throwing my drawings away, I really have nowhere else to put them. I know that the greatest benefit of digital drawings is not having to deal with that crap. However, I love traditional drawing. It’s like…comparing reading a physical book to reading it on kindle or something. There is nothing wrong with kindle. I am just the type of person who likes to use every sense possible when it comes to my hobbies. I absolutely love to feel different tools and blend with my fingers and smell certain art supplies (the ones that give off pleasant smells anyway). I don’t hate making digital art at all. It just feels…incomplete. That’s the same reason why I prefer physical books over digital ones. They do take up a lot of room, and thank everything good in this world that I am living with someone who doesn’t mind that, but books are something I need to feel. The smell, the texture of the cover, the page-flipping sound–those things can’t really be replicated with digital versions. Anyway, I am just “old school” when it comes to things like drawing and reading. Maybe even video games. The idea of playing games without controllers bothers me a little. Don’t get me wrong. I enjoy things like kinect for certain games, but all games being motion and/or voice controlled? Nah, son.
★彡 You ever had a meal so delicious that you envied the chef because (s)he can make it every night without paying $8 for one plate? Yeah, that’s how I feel every time I have Japanese food. I could easily grab a Japanese cookbook, but I don’t know if I’ll like the foods made by the chefs who write them. Risky, risky. Despite this, though, I still want Christine Ha’s cookbook. I am confident that her food will be delicious AND I’m incredibly curious. *sigh* Food is great. Food will be the end of me. Actually…that’s not a bad end. I can just eat until I fall into a food coma, sleep, and die.
☆彡 VERONICA MARS MOVIE IS REALLY HAPPENING. NOTHING ELSE TO SAY.
Yes…I have volumes.
With that said, I am bringing an extra set of headphones with me this week because it is “royal baby” week, and the only thing worse than listening to pointless chatter is listening to everyone chatting about the same pointless topic.
Posted by Kato on July 23, 2013
☆彡 I forgot how creepy the forest temple was in Ocarina of Time.
★彡 To all of my non-black friends, relatives, acquaintances, and so on: If you ever say something racist about black people and you’re on the verge of getting your ass chewed out for it, do not use your relationship with me to get out of that. Because I am not going to defend you. Furthermore, the thought of our relationship–however close or distant–being used as some type of I-can-say-all-the-racist-shit-I-want access card is nauseating to me and I’ll definitely disown you for that. Yep…that’s it. That’s all I had to say about that.
☆彡 Kainé introduced me to the term “shithog”, and for that I will always treasure her.
★彡 For me, being fat is 50% okay and 50% not okay. It’s awesome to not be hit on and groped and dragged into one-sided fights anymore, but it’s not awesome having zero stamina and staring diabetes in the face. As for being fit, that’s 50% okay and 50% not okay too. I will be stronger and healthier and more confident when I’m fit, but I’ll also return to being harassed by perverted men and mean-spirited women. So…I don’t know. On some days weight loss is going from good to better, and other days it’s going from the frying pan to the freezer.
☆彡I’d just like to congratulate Guts on his face, and the fact that losing an eye and an arm and pigmentation in his hair and getting covered in scars and aging added about 500 points to his general attractiveness. *tosses confetti*
★彡 My Perfect Day: Wake up whenever I want to, eat breakfast while watching movie or TV, shower, play video games, have lunch while watching movie or TV, go back to video games, prep dinner, cook dinner, eat dinner while watching movie or TV, work on story, work on drawings, drink tea, read book until I fall asleep. Aw yes~
☆彡 The Atlas Shrugged movies are terrible, but I keep watching them. Come to think of it, watching terrible things whilst wondering why the entire time perfectly sums up my experience with Netflix.
★彡 Welcome To The NHK…I don’t think I’ve ever watched an anime that was so hilarious and so depressing at the same time. Still, I wish that I watched it years ago when it first came out. There are so many lessons to take from it. It actually gets a little uncomfortable seeing how much Welcome To The NHK echoes with my life sometimes. Oh, well. On to the next anime.
☆彡 When I think of the millions of things I can do, I realize that I am not even living 1% of my life. In a metaphor (Yes, I love my metaphors), life is a giant mansion and I’ve been living in the same room my entire life. How can I realistically judge the entire mansion from that tiny little room alone? Or, what I mean to say, how can I determine that life is absolutely pointless when I’ve barely even lived it.
★彡 I can’t imagine getting to a point in my life where an expired coupon makes me start screaming and throwing things at cashiers. Thankfully. I never want to see something like that and think: “Yeah, that’s reasonable. I could see myself doing that.”
☆彡 Even when Haley Joel Osment is 90 years old, he is the only voice actor I will accept as Sora.
★彡 Please explain to me the purpose of giving the silent treatment to someone who enjoys silence? I’m still trying to grasp that.
☆彡 Mark’s reaction to playing NiGHTS into Dreams for the first time: “Were you on drugs as a child?”
Yes, Mark. Yes.
★彡 Liking two characters that hate each other can get really overwhelming at times.
☆彡 What is this bullshit about Drag-on Dragoon 3 not coming to the US? Stop playing, Square-Enix.
★彡 Looking back on your past self and feeling shame isn’t pleasant, but it is definitely something to be grateful for. I mean…look at yourself 10 years ago and imagine being that person 10 years from now. Even more cringeworthy, isn’t it? Improvement is difficult, and it may bring embarrassment, but living a life where you never improve is a very, very, very, very unfortunate life.
☆彡 If I open up to you about something and you act like a judgmental prick, I will never open up to you again. I won’t even tell you what I had for lunch. That’s how much faith I lack in your ability to treat the information I give you with tolerance and understanding.
★彡 I hope when I learn a second language that its native speakers will be honest with me and tell me when I am saying something wrong. Or if it is just an outdated way of saying something. Anything constructive is good.
☆彡 The time I put aside to play video games consists of going through my pile of shame, recalling why I temporarily abandoned a game, and abandoning the game again. And this goes on and on until I just grab a random game. It’s also likely that after abandoning a game for a long time I will overcome a hump that frustrated me. It always happens.
★彡 The true challenge with sketchbooks is remembering to take my time, leave mistakes alone, and stop trying to tell a story. I still treat every drawing I make like some type of art project for school. I’m still not used to the idea of just….drawing a cup because I feel like it, you know? That is something I am teaching myself slowly but surely. Or re-teaching myself. There was a time when I could just draw a pokemon and be content. Nowadays, though, I am likely to spend the entire day trying to portray some type of story behind the pokemon I’m drawing and just become frustrated. In the end, it is always me against myself.
☆彡 Life without Toonami Aftermath is not a good life. I know this because life after Toonami was not a good life.
★彡 LIGHTNING IN CLOUD’S UNIFORM WITH A BUSTER SWORD.
…I can’t handle.
I have to go.
I’m going to tackle some video games. I’m also considering a Bulma layout but Daenerys. Yeah, let’s Daenerys.
Tonight is also curry night! Yessss~
And thunderstorms! Yessss~

☆彡 I was going to say something perverted in honor of this 69th entry, but I’m just going to leave this gif of Nami twerking while Batman watches instead.
★彡 I love that scene in Tron: Legacy when programs are being derezzed left and right, and Daft Punk just casually changes the music to match the chaos going on. I think the next time I am forced to witness a fight, I’m going to pull out a turntable, put a Daft Punk helmet on, and start playing “Derezzed”. I’m adding this to my bucket list right now to be honest.
☆彡 Since maybe late middle school, I wanted to join the military. I gave up on the dream around high school when I received a lot of negative feedback about that decision, but I never stopped thinking about it. I still wouldn’t mind joining the Air Force or National Guard. I know the age limit for the National Guard is 35, but I’m not sure about the Air Force. I’ll look into it and, of course, start training if it becomes something I absolutely want to do.
★彡 Mark and I got through the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited series pretty quickly. No surprise there. We’re on season 2 of
The Walter Bishop Show Fringe right now and definitely enjoying it…mostly because of Walter Bishop. He is precious.
☆彡 You know what’s fun? Slow internet connection! I never get tired of that!
★彡 I always wanted to buy an RV and just drive around with someone for a year. Perhaps I’ll do that with Mark when we retire someday. Or we’ll hit the jackpot and do that before we get old.
☆彡 There should be a time limit on illnesses. After a week, the body should just say: “Okay, you had your fun, flu. Now get the fuck out.” If only.
★彡 My favorite thing to do after a crappy day is take a long shower. As silly as it sounds, I imagine that the water is washing away the negative aspects of my day and giving me a chance to start fresh again.
☆彡 Had a Minecraft scare. The recent update effed up my file something fierce, and for some reason it kept loading as a brand new game. So, I had to delete the game before re-downloading a new copy. That scared the crap out of me. I’m almost done with this fortress I’m working on AND I got a lot of diamond, so…yeah…glad everything is working out.
★彡 Wrongdoers who cannot live with the evils they commit will often belittle their victims for not “letting it go”. It’s easier that way. By blaming the victims, wrongdoers don’t have to focus on the fact that they are capable of doing the same evils their community and morals consider unacceptable. Furthermore, they can remove the burden of guilt out of this paradoxical excuse that the victim deserves the harm (s)he received because (s)he will not “let go” of the harm (s)he received.
☆彡 Two more weeks until Star Trek: Into Darkness! I really can’t wait anymore. I feel like I’m going to just spontaneously combust from excitement. ;_;
★彡 If there is a holiday coming up and it’s not Halloween, I don’t care.
☆彡 I am not responsible for feelings hurt because of how I look. It’s my fucking face. What do you want me to do? Tear it off so you can rest easy at nights? Get the fuck out of here.
★彡 Another scene I love before I go: that scene in Scott Pilgrim VS The World when Matthew Patel starts singing and Stacy Pilgrim goes: “What?” always kills me. I watch this movie almost everyday. It’s a little sad at this point. 😄
Okay, going to upload some drawings I did. I’m practicing but I’m still not happy enough with my drawings to do things like commissions and whatnot. I’m getting there though. With each new picture, I am happier with my skills.

☆彡 *casually leaves Minecraft on for the music*
★彡 Awesome Shows Netflix Added To Instant: The Boondocks, Adventure Time, Fringe, Robot Chicken, Metalocalypse, The Regular Show, Aqua Teen Hunger, Powerpuff Girls, Samurai Jack, Johnny Brave, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dexter’s Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, The Venture Brothers, and…I believe that is it. *slam dunks productivity in the trash can*
☆彡 Every time I watch Tron: Legacy, I remember this couple who sat behind us in the theater that kept complaining about Jeff Bridges “using too much botox” during the scenes with Young!Flynn and Clu. It wasn’t until Flynn, played by the actual Jeff Bridges, showed up that they realized it was CG. To this day, Mark and I still say things like: “What’s with all of the botox. Wow, Jeff Bridges. How dare you. You don’t even look human anymore.” LOL. I will give them some credit for saying Jeff Bridges is cool…because he is cool.
★彡 Unfortunately, Square-Enix adding Final Fantasy X-2 to the Final Fantasy X remake does nothing for me. I love Final Fantasy X like no one’s business, and the Final Fantasy X-2 battle system was magnificent, but neither game is enough to make me want to buy a Vita. Of course, if a Vita happens to fall into my lap then I will pick up the games just for old time’s sake…but it’s not enough on it’s own like FFX was in my decision to get a PS2. Really, I am still waiting for SE to give Final Fantasy VIII and Final Fantasy IX some love–IF they ever get any. I mean, we already know FFVII gets an infinite amount of love from SE. The Final Fantasy N Generation games were re-released on the Nintendo DS, Final Fantasy X received a sequel, Final Fantasy XII received a sequel as well, FFIX is ongoing, and the same can be said for FFXIII. VIII and IX though have pretty much vanished outside of Dissidia. I already know that FFIX is often overlooked because it doesn’t “look like a FF game”…whatever the fuck that means…but it is a fantastic game. The same for FFVIII. So, I don’t know…I wish there was an explanation for why those games aren’t receiving anything like sequels, spin-offs, or remakes besides the “it’s not popular enough” reply I tend to hear.
☆彡 Perhaps this confirms my theory that I am aging too fast, but I am growing wearier of the internet by the day. Surprisingly, it is not the social aspect of the internet that bothers me. It is the information overload. I don’t have anything against information I intentionally learn through research or speaking to others. That, to me, is “good” information. “Bad” information is wasting precious memory on things I didn’t mean to memorize. It actually saddens me when I don’t remember the capital of a country, but I remember what so-and-so ate last year. My brain is like a sponge, and information is like liquid. I really can’t filter what type of information my brain wants to absorb, the same way you can’t filter what types of liquid a sponge chooses to absorb. That is the best metaphor that I can offer. Honestly, I do believe my digital activity will get to a point where I only update this blog and check social networks once or twice a month. As much as I enjoy trying out different websites and catching up on things, I am exhausting myself for no reason. It’s better to work towards retaining useful information in the end…even if it isn’t “fun”. Yes, yes, I am just a big ol’ wet blanket. What can I say? Time changes things. Naturally, I am not excluded from that.
★彡 If someone can make millions off of a Twilight fan fiction, I really have no excuse at all.
☆彡 I thought buying 120 crayons would be fun…but I accidentally overwhelmed myself. I spend the last three hours organizing them into sections based on their shade and labeling each color in my sketch book (draw and color a circle with a crayon, write the name of the crayon I used with a pencil, repeat). Now I am attempting to memorize what color coordinates with what name so I won’t accidentally confuse vivid tangerine with outrageous orange or neon carrot or atomic orange. * disintegrates* If only I had this level of organization towards shit that actually matters.
★彡 If I ever doubted that my attention span was pathetic, Neave TV curb stomped that doubt.
☆彡 The Sailor Moon anime has been delayed. I AM CRYING TWIN WATERFALLS (Excel Saga moar). I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. Genius cannot be rushed, right? So, if Queen Naoka says it is not ready then it is not ready. Also, I am side-eyeing people who are posting faulty-ass Sailor Moon artwork and saying that it’s “leaked” from the anime. Fans, please check around before getting your hopes up about anything. A good place to start is here: https://twitter.com/OsabuP_English. (S)he is the editor of Sailor Moon, and works directly with Naoka Takeuchi. If anyone is going to post official stuff for the anime it is her…or him…I’m not sure. But follow that for updates. News is slow, yes, but it is better than false news.
★彡 500 years later, I am finally playing Scott Pilgrim VS The World. It is incredibly nostalgic. It makes me want to bust out my Super Nintendo and relive the frustration of cartridges.
☆彡 AGGRESSIVELY WAITS FOR RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES TO BE RELEASED.
★彡 Lavender incense. *u*
☆彡 There is such a thing as “acquaintance zone” now? Wow. How does that even work? “I talked to my co-worker for ten seconds, yet she rejected my slumber party invitation. I can’t believe she acquaintance zoned me. What gives?”
★彡 “Some random person with no proof to back up their statements and no certifications to support their credibility said it. Therefore, it must be true.” — the type of shit I put up with
Well, on scale of one to grumpy cat, I am Oscar the Grouch. So, it’s time for me to depart and get some fucking tea. 😀
P.S. Posting sassy Tuvok in that last entry made me realize that Tom Paris’ expressions are great too. So, I will close this with a Tom Paris expression appreciation thing.
