I see you lurking! How’s it feel to be done with the semester?
Hey! Sorry for the late response. It felt like a pretty satisfying conclusion. A lot of rushing around, but I learned a lot to bring to the next time I teach
Happy Thanksgiving Xeno
Happy happy birthday! Hope it was a pleasant one!
Thanks! Don't recognize your username, but I appreciate you taking the time to wish me happy birthday Nice to meet'cha!
Yay! Ok see... I'm not completely dead here at all LOL but I think I've already sent you my personal greeting! I just wanted give you my birthday greeting here in ZU as well! So, HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY XENO!!!!! Have fun, it's your day today! ♡( ◡‿◡ )
Thanks Chlo! I appreciate both forms I got to drink a bit, and if I can finish class prepping, I hope to do some more celebrating tonight!
Hey, happy birthday!
Thanks for the well wishes and taking the time to come to my wall to say it Sunshine
Happy Birthday friend!
oh my gosh your new avatar.
CONGRATS XENO!!!! You’re gonna do great!
Thanks Winnie Here's hoping!
*poke* what's up friend? How have you been?
Hey Winnie! I'm doing alright; my life is pretty underwhelming haha. Been DMing a Pokemon Tabletop campaign, that's been awesome so far. Work stuff hasn't been working out, and classes are much harder to take seriously when they're online and free x_x Beyond that, been enjoying getting outside and listening to podcasts haha. Enough about me xD How's things for yourself?
Aw man I’m sorry, I was hoping your work situation would have been looking up by now! Do you at least like your classes? Things are going well with me, just hitting the gym and trying to moderate my sweets intake haha! Besides that playing Hollow Knight is taking up my time!
Xeno you need to talk more during game night!!
Haha, I suppose it would help if I joined the call, but Monday! Probably!
The Foreign Wind greets you, Cody, first of his Name :3
Oh look! It's Blue!
I'm Blue ba ba de ba da do~
It's funny, cause I've actually heard this character referred to with two names. Blue and Leaf. I suppose both are from Pokemon Red/Blue, but for me Blue has always been the Gary rival, so I call her Leaf
Either way, how ya doing?
I heard in the Pokemon manga she is Blue. So there you go!
I'm doing great aside from leg tremors, which has been very annoying. But I'm getting meds for that soon. So hopefully that'll be fixed. Other than that same old; same old.
How about you?
Glad you're gonna be getting something for those, cause that sucks :/
As for me, same ol as well. Classes finishing up this week, looking for some online courses for next semester. Leaf is at least partially inspired by my current obsession over Pokemon, as I've started running a Pokemon tabletop game which takes up a substantial amount of my free time (but I consider that a good thing haha)
Is this tabletop game, a Din Game Night special, or something?
Tabletop game, like Dungeons and Dragons, except fanmade and Pokemon. It's called "Pokemon Tabletop United," and while fairly complicated, it's been a ton of fun to GM
cool new avi
Thanks! It's "Leaf," the female trainer option from Pokemon LeafGreen. I spent a lot of time cutting out the character and adding the background, but I really wanted to celebrate Spring finally showing up somehow, and snowy kimono Hifumi wasn't gonna do it xD
I thought she looked familiar although I havent really played leafgreen in ages. lol But yeah its a nice change of scenery altho i do miss Hifumi as your avi haha
I just left a huge comment on your wall re:avvys, but I'm considering having a seasonal thematic avatar switch. So Hifumi is my winter one, Leaf is my Spring, I have a Fall picked out already, but I'm not sure what I'd do for Summer yet...
Dunno if I'll follow through with the idea, but I know what you mean....it's a little weird not having Hifumi here
if you dont mind me asking what Visual Novel were you referring to on your first avatar?
One called "Umineko no naku koro ni," and the character was George. It was an interesting VN; very long, with great music and some really awesome scenes/story-arcs, but it was like Lost in its convoluted story-telling over time haha
An isogete is a strange thing to proclaim yourself to be.
It's certainly not meant to be taken very seriously :p It just comes from the fact that I enjoy reading into things.
Also, a pleasure to make your acquaintance!
Tri Force fell for the April Fools prank you gays pulled. lol He's all hyped and disappointed.
Lol aw...I remember one of the comments we discussed was someone essentially saying "that's mean I really wanted this to be true and you're mean for getting me excited" xD
(To avoid incurring the Wrath of Sol in the Din Embassy)
I've been a Melty Blood fan since... ah... 2003? I suddenly feel a bit old. ^^;
Got my wife, Scarly into it last year as well.
Man, I first encountered Melty Blood..in high school, but I didn't start playing until college 2004ish, it was my first fighting game that I was serious with
My first was Soul Calibur, with Melty as the second... which I got into more and more as better hacked together netplay clients became a thing, lol. I was a TINY BIT surprised when it came out on Steam.
YEAH. I wanted to, but it's a lot of money and I didn't have too many people to play with. (Not to mention I'm just no good at competitive games)
Sadly the Steam version's multiplayer is kinda dead, from what I've heard ;_;
Aw that's sad. I'm guessing the sheild lady is your fav character? I tend to grow toward several characters.. I liked Akiha normal, Nanaya Shiki, and Len.
Xeno how are you?! How’s your semester going so far?
Hey Winne! I'm hanging in. Job interview coming up and trying my hand at GMing which is satisfyingly eating up a lot of my spare time. Semester is going well, just had my midterm exam at 8 this morning actually lol. Class keeps getting pushed back from snow haha
You’re going to do great at your interview!
Thanks! Here's hoping xD
I figured it out. So smart
So what's the right answer?
Aw so close, please play again~
Where do I insert my quarter?
There's only a dollar slot. And it accepts 20s :p
Happy New Year Cody! What's your resolution?
Getting healthier, being more consistent
Just one wish, what is it?
A job that I love, with a living income and enough freedom to grow as a human being outside of it
I like this Aigis kimono pic as my avatar lol
Totes Persona kimono buddies.
Now we just need a festival to attend and we're Golden!
Xeno xeno vent vent, Xenovent~!
Is that how I sound as a Pokemon? Because I think I've decided I'm an Ice/Rock type :3
I approve! I was also just bored waiting for work so I decided to post something on your wall just because lol
Hifumi is cute. There are so many cute girls in the Persona series especially P5 lol
Very true lol xD Almost a little unbalanced how many likable girl characters there are to likable guy characters, but hey, I ain't gonna complain!
Boy romances in video games tend to be kind of boring considering how many games are centered for heterosexual men in mind.
True. Even taking that into account, the lack of cool male side characters is disappointing. Maybe I'm just in the same demographic of not paying as much attention to the cool guys as the cute girls, but even the cool guys I can think of from P5 didn't stand out very much. Oh well, here's hoping for a well-balanced P6!!
Oh, as an aside though, I really did like the Garrus romance in Mass Effect 2, so I'm glad I can think of one xDD
Reyes in Mass Effect Andromeda was arguably the best male romance in the ME series, since he wasn't some standard dude and was a "bad boy," you could say. Garrus was cute. Lol he's a dork. But femshep and Liada is imo the best overall.
What's your avatar from?
Persona 5 - this is one of the side characters Hifumi Togo
Ah, shoulda guessed. I'll beat P3 one of these days >o>
You definitely should. P3 is a pretty awesome game. I'll admit I didn't enjoy the grind of "The Answer" arc/DLC/Expansion whatever you'd want to call it though lol. Dungeon crawling is much more fun in P5.
Boo who? :3
Where can I find this Japanesepod101 thing?
Also. If I ever git gud with the language, I'd be down to chat with you.
Happy belated birthday, by the way!
Thanks Miku :3 Here's a link for JPod101 - japanesepod101.com/index.php. When I got my resources, I had signed up for a free trial, which let me download their audio library, I then made use of those afterward.
Feel free to hit me up to practice chat whenever you'd like or if you have any basic questions (I've forgotten a lot, but I'm still around a beginner level ^_^;)
Cool beans. I had to create a new email address, cause I forgot my password. >_>
I looked in my Japanese dictionary, and I couldn't find, Ganbatte nasai. So what does it mean word for word?
Pardon me for not being more precise, but "ganbatte" is the "te" form (the form for verbs to link with other words, hard for me to explain better right now xD) of "Ganbaru" meaning "to do your best" or thereabouts. "Nasai" is a gentle command suffix, so loosely translated as "Do your best!" or another very common equivocal translation "Good luck!"
Arigatoo gozaimasu ni anatagata setsumei!
(Or in eigo(Englsih))
"Thank you for your explanation!"
^I spent around 15 minutes or so trying to piece that together, and it probably needs rearranging or changing. lol
Let me know how it's suppose to be said.
I would probably rearrange that as "Anata no setsumei de arigatou gozaimasu" or "Anata[you] no [possesive particle] setsumei [explaination] de [from/for particle], arigatou gozaimasu [thank you very much]. Typically in Japanese, verbs are last and they play loose and fast with the necessity of subjects in sentences. They expect you to take a lot of the meaning of the sentence from context, to the extent that "Tabemasu" [to eat, present form] is a complete sentence, and you have to know from context if it means "I eat" or "she eats." That is all to say, in Japanese expect to reverse your sentences from what you would expect in English. So "For your explanation, thank you!" or "That delicious sushi roll, I want to eat!" (Ano maki wa tabetai!)
Happy birthday buddy! Have a good one
Thanks Chlo! You don't mind if I call you Chlo do you? lol
Lol you can call me chlo,chloro, pichloro... i don't really mind at all! XD
I just wanted to get on over here and wish you a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
How have you been?
I hope that you have a wonderful Birthday,
Thank you Tead! Been well. New classes have been good so far, and I'm enjoying life! How about yourself?
New classes?! How dare they?!!
Actually, new classes are nice! I would like to take some classes, but I opted to travel. I might consider online classes, but I am not certain I like that idea entirely.
I am glad to here that you are enjoying life; I do not always enjoy life, but much of it is not bad for me currently.
What are your Birthday plans? Anything exciting in the works?
Enjoy your Birthday,
Nothing too excited. Got a new video game and did homework today. Mom is making me a special dinner and then pie afterward. I'm not too fussy lol One of my classes is part online, I'll let you know if I like it, but I definitely like in person classes too.
How lucky for you, a double post; all this luck for you, and on your Birthday as well!
I love double post! I really do; if someone has one anywhere, I try to reply to them both. If it is a subject that I like.
So, double post much? LOL.
Have fun Xenovent,
