Happy birthday. >w<
Happy birthday dude! Hope you enjoy yourself!
Happy Birthday! Hope you really have a good one!
Thanks! I'm honestly not gonna do much, as I got to run some errands during the day. I'll probably go out to dinner. No biggie. Birthdays are very lowkey for me.
Yo!!!!!! I don't care if you were being sarcastic, here's some spam. imgur.com/r/WDTSG/gGyB3xU
I hope you like it.
Spam is maps backwards.
Nasty! I'm no soldier!
I do like maps though. They get me places.
Thanks for nominating me for most energetic. I've lost count of how many people have picked me for that lol. Oh and I like your new avatar. Actually I liked your previous one too.
No problem. It was an easy choice. I merely had to look at your post count *cough*. Everyone else was a pokemon so I thought I might as well join in. Dragonite's my boy.
*gasp* Are you implying you're going to crush my heart?!
How have you been?
With my love absolutely.
I’ve been good, how are you!
horrible, but physically ok. Had a car accident on the freeway, and I destroyed the front fender on the passenger side. Amazingly the damage was only cosmetic, and I can still drive the thing, but I'm basically going to have to get makeshift parts, since the original pieces can no longer be found.
Funny thing is that the other car was perfectly fine but for a few minor scratches on the back bumper.
Otherwise I'm alright. My school is going well, as is my internship. Not making a whole lot of money to sustain myself and pay for the damages, though. My free internship kind of makes working on a business day difficult.
Oh my gosh, i am so sorry that happened. It sucks when the other car turns out fine, it has happened to me a few times while driving on the highway.
But I am happy that your schooling and internship is going good. I wish I could help!
No worries. I've got my health and can still use the car while I search for parts. Anything new with you?
How is Wheel of Time? I see that series everywhere and I've been thinking I might just go ahead and read it.
To put it simply...an epic. If you like high fantasy akin to Lord of the Rings, you can't go wrong. Political intrigue, philosophy, cultural dialogue, and a rich, blended narrative. I'll admit, the first book, Eye of the World, follows Fellowship of the Ring to a T, though it quickly diverges after. Just be warned that there are 14 books, so be prepared for an investment.
High fantasy like Lord of the Rings is basically my favorite genre, so that's definitely a good sign. 14 is a bit more books than I assumed there were, though. I think I've only seen the first 7 or 8. Well, maybe I'll start collecting them when I see them at book sales and such, and then start reading it once I have all or at least a lot of them.
A fellow Wheel of Time fan!
I'm currently re-reading the series^^
Nice! Rand's journey was a big part of my high school life. I'm not sure if I can reread the series again though, haha. 14 books...all quite lengthy. Other than Moiraine, Lan and Moridin are some of my favorite high fantasy characters.
Hehe^^ I failed to complete it the first time I tried, then finished the first 13 shortly before the last book was released. I'm on book 11, currently I really like Perrin, myself. I'm fond of the others as well, though^^ Lan is awesome, of course.
I hope you'll like "Only Yesterday" when you some day get to see it. I really love it, myself
I'm sure I will! I'm pretty sure that and and Marnie are the only Ghibli movies I haven't seen, and I've loved the rest. They know how to please me, with the general aesthetic of their movies, believable, multi-faceted characters, and sense of wonder. Miyazaki and his crew really make me appreciate strong female protagonists.
Mm, I love pretty much every Ghibli movie as well :p Only Yesterday is rather diferent than most others, though. It's a relatively simple story about life, but I find it very charming still. When you do see it, remember to sit through the end credits^^
Just wanted to say I love your avatar and sig. Nice to see the Oracle games get some love.
Thanks! Aurelia, another member here, was kind enough to make it for me. It's a caricature of myself with my favorite fruit and my favorite animal character, Moosh! The Oracle games (particularly Ages) are some of my favorites. It's part of how I got my username, along with the fact that its acronym is OoT.
And heya, how's everything been with you? :>
Thanks! Nice Jack Frost Kirby!
Good! Got my Switch over the weekend (after waiting 2 weeks for it to arrive). Enjoying it a lot. Sad about the money I had to shell out to get it, but overall happy, haha.
My school is going well. Nothing out of the ordinary.
How about you?
Haha thanks. This totally needs to be a thing.
NICE! See, you'd eventually give in :^) Glad you're enjoying it. What have you gotten for it thus far?
Glad to hear! I started uni recently, myself. Life's been good, tiring xD besides the usual, not complaining much haha.
I have Celeste, Odyssey, Steamworld dig 2, kamiko, celeste, axiom verge, and BOTW.
Yes, I had BOTW on Wii U already. The funny thing was I got the Switch version for the special explorer's guide (which I got on a discount) before I even realized that I wanted to have a Switch.
Congrats! And yeah, college life can be a mess in the first year, haha.
Ngl an excuse to play a Zelda game again is easy to sell for me xD I've played all three versions of OoT, both of MM and the GC and Wii versions of TP, for example. Any games that pique your interest but don't have yet? I hear good things of both Xenoblade and Kirby, for some.
What did the explorers guide include, again? O.o Can't even keep track of everything BotW released, rip.
Oh it definitely is! Especially because I spent two years as a slacker with low social interaction, so it was particularly rough lmao.
I kind of want Xenoblade, but there are so many elements to it that are off-putting for me. The hyperbolic anime tropes, the 'fan service', the random blade mechanic, areas gated by specific skills, and the lame main character. I loved the original, and while it had its share of tropes, it was not to the same degree, not by a mile. The fact that every trailer has emphasized these scenes, and the fact that a lot of players have noted them, turns me off.
The edition included a map and a small guidebook with beautiful art on the front cover. It came after the day 1 Masters Edition, which had that novelty Master Sword statuette. I really wanted it (again, without even thinking of buying a Switch).
Well say goodbye to your isolation. Whether you like it or not, people will bother you on campus, haha.
God I haven't spoken to you in forever.
Well don't let me stop you! Talk to God!
It has been a while. What's been going on? Has Alan Cumming noticed you?
Kinda? On my birthday back in December he gave me another shoutout...and he used my name, whereas the first time he didn't.
Course, it was my legal name but still.
hey, that's great! Etch that into your heart. He cares about a fan who he's never met.
Oh, I did, believe me. He stole my heart way before that though.
...also I was kinda mindlessly scrolling through tumblr a bit ago and there was this post that said "would an alien think I'm pretty" only I thought it said Alan at first oops.
Well, would he?
Love the avatar
Thank you! Haha, I wish I could take credit. In the Smash hype I just googled fanart and it popped up. I like to draw, but I wouldn't dream of making something this good.
Eh, even still. Avatar selection is an art in and of itself.
The answer is 42
Took me a hot minute to realize you were referencing my user title. It always is, fellow Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fan.
it makes me happy that you still continue to use the avatar I made you :3
I actually just changed it a second ago, haha. Yeah, it's my signature pic now. It accentuates...me!
as I would hope so!
It does! Let me know when you're willing to skype again. I'm open around the same agreed upon time (~8ish-10ish pst) every weekday, and pretty much free throughout the weekends if I don't have stuff planned.
Imma say maybe Saturday night depending on how I feel after work, but I’ll definitely let you know very soon!
do you wanna try out a forum game? :3
eh, it depends on how involved it might be. If it means participation everyday, I can't. Some days I try my best to stay offline and get out of the house. There are days where I'm online, but am not inclined to post in a forum. I use to be an avid Mafia player in another forum, and even created my own games on some occasions, but not anymore.
Ah, it was actually a mafia game I'm running. Nevermind then! =P
Yuor avatar change threw me off and i was like wut
haha, surprise! If you knew me in my high school days you would know I was huge on zoology before I decided to go into a career as a psychologist. The clouded leopard has always been my favorite animal.
well its good to change your avatar once in a ehile haha. Also interesting change in direction there Why the switch?
couldn't really tell you. It's funny 'cuz I was initially going to find a Samus set, in celebration of Samus Returns, but then I started to think about a more original set, something that wouldn't be predictable. Then I thought about what are my favorite things aside from Zelda, and here we are.
I honestly put more thought into deciding my set than I have in writing my current school assignment, haha. This is what procrastination does.
lol i actually meant why switch from being into zoology to psychiatry
I realized that I wasn't as good with the concepts of the natural sciences (i.e biology and chemistry) as I thought, haha. It's not as drastic a switch as you'd think. I was planning to get into animal behavior, and now I'm geared towards human behavior. The switch was ultimately due to me gradually understanding my strengths and weaknesses, and finding out that the realm of animal science was not going to be my strong suit. And it's school psychology, not psychiatry. Two completely different disciplines, the latter requiring a medical degree.
Join ZU's Discord, you know you want to
how to discord? I've never used it. I've heard it's like Skype. I've joined forum-related chat groups before (i.e on skype), and I don't tend to be too fond of them. I prefer talking to people one on one instead of being bombarded with several voices at once.
Yeah, it's an IM platfotm x3 ZU has an official server :'v
But going off that, IM probably isn't for you, so :'D. It's muuuuch faster paced thsn forums, that's for sure xD
Yup, probably not. I like having a back and forth dialogue. I can't glean much if everyone is talking at once. You inevitably get people who are drowned out. I would probably be in that group, haha.
i stillcant believe doom and wolfo 2 is coming ot switch. Like that makes me super hopeful for third party support
Those were the highlights of the direct, and Nintendo made a blunder of not flaunting those titles and spending more time with them. These are perfect examples of Western third party support, and you need to emphasize that with your audience.
yeah iget what you mean. though the fact itsh appening is really good til
Agreed. I'll admit that the overall presentation didn't woo me to go buy a Switch. Mario Odyssey's the only game that is wowing me. XC2 was suppose to be one of the other titles, but it looks choppy, and the combat UI was busy and all over the place. Octopath Traveler looks enticing, but not a system seller for me.
im moreo r less sold onthe thnig hahah
son, holy spirit, amen
have you been blessed by my presence?
you should be blessed by my presence
Uh, who gives you shelter AND cap'n crunch, hm? You're blessed to have me, young lady.
O R A C L E E E E
F R O Y O
F R O Z E N Y O G U R T
I"m sorry, but your name always reminds me of it, haha
Yeah, that's what it means
(I actually haven't tried frozen yogurt yet though lol xD)
How've you been? :3
Been pretty good, up until this point.
Now I'm sad that I don't have frozen yogurt in my house, and that you have yet to get frozen yogurt.
Maybe someday xD I already like regular yogurt though so, hey halfway there :b
They've got frozen yogurt over there, right? It's almost blasphemous to not have a taste at least once in your life.
I don't care whether you're lactose intolerant or not. To not have some is sacrilege
