It's neat you know or knew a lot of Russian though x)

I was never that good at Russian and I've forgotten nearly all of what I did know.

I still got nearly straight A's through my Russian courses, though.


... College!

You could always take commissions for MLP* fanart and by fanart I mean "fanart if you get my drift."

I majored in Computer Science and Russian. I liked Russian and didn't like CS, but CS was more practical, so double major. Except I've totally forgotten Russian now, don't really like linguistics or languages anymore anyway, and... I have a really well paying CS job that I don't like either.

idk what I was thinking when I started majoring in Russian. You don't really have any sort of perspective on what's /useful/ in college, and colleges tell you anything's useful (because anything IS useful within academia, but fuck that).

I'm tired.

I wonder if I ever ate an entire thing of macaroni without chewing.

Congriceulat Dations!

--edit--

Can't tell if I'm liking durian more in and of itself, or if it's just mellowed out a bit by being left in my freezer for a few days. In any case, frozen durian seems to get weird if you let it thaw out completely, although you might have to do that to get open in the first place, idk. The onion taste was gross when I wasn't really expecting it but I like it now, though it's more like caraway and celery seed than /onion/. Smell wasn't particularly bad -- REALLY strong onion smell with kind of a gasoline/sulfur undercurrent, which is about on par with what any larger city just smells like ambiently.

... Gotta say, tamarind is better cold, too, although I wish it was less of a pain in the ass to eat.

Dragonfruit was kind of less interesting -- the pulp didn't have much flavor but I kind of dig the bitterness from the seeds. I... honestly would probably eat it again. It's pretty refreshing for what it is, I just wouldn't pay a lot for it.

Haven't gotten around to trying the sapote yet.

My life is consumed by fruit and railshooters I'M AN ADULT I'M A WIGWAM I'M A WIGWAM I'M A TEEPEE I'M A TEEPEE

Oh also found out that the office I'm going to be working at starting in January is not the office I THOUGHT I would be working at and is actually like a ten minute walk from my bus stop. At least it's not in fucking WHITEHALL. If it was in Whitehall I'd quit. Whitehall is... not quite the Detroit of Columbus (that'd be the wasteland south of the fairgrounds) but it's close.

Not sure if it's just me getting older, or being content with what I have at my age, but nothing really jumped out at me this year during the Black Friday/Cyber Money special deals online that I thought to myself, wow! I gotta have that. Anyone else land any cool deals?

I bought pretty much everything I'd been wanting for the past 15 years back in 2013, so not really. As noted previously, my major black friday purchases were fruit.

btw the longans were fucked :(

Child of Eden - Whaaaaaaat :DDDDD 8DDDDDDDDD

Also picked up Gunblade so I might go play that.

Would've been nice if the stuff I wanted from Gamestop had all been at the same damn gamestop so I could've saved like four bucks on these old arcade games nobody wants but me.

1. Have 20 dollars in amazon funbux. Was planning on getting some Porta Pros but I'd rather try those out first. Now eying maybe Elemental Gearbolt.

2. I like late-night black friday shopping, not for like getting sales and stuff, but just because it's fun being out late with a bunch of other people. It's great when people get in the like, fun party spirit of it.

3. Weird holiday feels time. I went back to Lima to visit my family for a few days. Hanging around Lima is... emotionally confusing. Going back to your childhood hometown after not living there for a while is always like that, but maybe it's worse when it's a city you never liked in the first place? IDK.

Mostly it's bringing up a lot of weird, uncomfortable memories of highschool. Partially 'cause we went black friday shopping at the mall there and it was like, just herds of teenage mall trash of the sort I... never really was in retrospect, but still encountered a lot. And it's a different kind of teenage mall trash than what I see in Columbus.

Anyway, I'm aprehensive about getting games from Steam's thanksgiving sale because it's reminding me of how I got some gog games (Geneforge, The Real Texas) from GOG's thanksgiving sale back in 2012 and then my dog died like five days later.

--- edit ---

4. No idea how I feel about durian. I'm going to try freezing it and seeing what it's like /frozen/.

Symphonia is like one of two tales games that I don't hate, although I haven't really played it recently so who knows.

Beat mission 5 on Valkyria Chronicles. I don't really have the fortitude to NOT skip every single cutscene in the game, so I think I'm just to pass on this because I got the impression the main draw was the story anyway.

I think I dropped like a grand on a 360 + monitor + games + hotel fees in July (although in my defense that was definitely within the realm of affordability).

@ Mesh... I don't know if you are at/near/past the start of Disc 4 yet but for the love of god, take the time to search and revisit lots o places if you are not/haven't already.

I haven't actually played any games in like, two weeks now?

... I think I might grab Re:Volver and Jade Penetrate Black Package from steam to try and shock myself out of my non-interest in gaming. I find that gaming actually DOES improve my mental state, so'p.

-- edit --

Played Valkyria briefly. I feel like the game actively encourages save/reload tactics until you stumble on to whatever optimal route through a mission is going to get you the A rank. Trying to play intelligently by making use of cover and sending proper backup along is too slow to get A ranks.

I too got thrown out of a computer lab today because I called someone a cunt.

Although in my case, this was at our local branch of the Marie Trurbton School for Giant Disembodied Vaginas, and I guess the /c-word/ only counts as a term of endearment 'round those parts if you, yourself, are a giant disembodied vagina.

Otherwise it's a racial slur.

Yep.

Probably that one time my dad actually let me play Tecmo Bowl with him.

... Actually I'm not sure that ever happened.

I'll just drop this here:

white people in Vancouver riot over a hockey game and cause $5 million worth of damage to their own city: "well that's just sports fans being sports fans"

black people riot in Ferguson over the result of a grand jury investigation in to the murder of a youth: "It's the fall of civilization as we know it!"



And if black people in Vancouver riot over a hockey game: "Where the hell did all these black people come from?"

... Did anyone else read harry potter when they were twelve and get to "neville longbottoms" and somehow parse that as having like, three feet long butt.
