I want to vomit.

This colleague is stressing me out to the point where I lose my appetite, and you know, want to share my partly digested lunch with the sewer rats. I'm aware this is very unhealthy, but I do like what I do, even if it means having to put up with people like her.

The past month (more like 6 weeks actually), I've been trying to get her to do her job. So many e-mails and text messages were send. Responses were rare. Now it turns out she's working with some misconception of what her assignments were supposed to be. She fucking everything up and her reaction is: "Oh, I guess there was some miscommunication." Yeah, no shit. Actually, wait, miscommunication isn't the problem. The problem is that there's barely any communication at all. And the logs prove that's not my fault.

I wish I could yell at her like some TV chef until she understands the importance of communication. But she'd just start crying and ask why I'm so mean to her. I did drop a "Don't worry, my expectations of you are so low, you couldn't possible disappoint me", and I'm going to get so much shit for that, because we're all supposed to be the super bestest friends in the whole wide world.

Looks like Berseria is sticking to traditions and we'll be able to save the world by punching a silver-haired pretty boy (okay, man) in the face.

There's just so much wrong there... Aren't police officers supposed to be trained to prevent situations like that from escalating? And, you know, not escalate it themselves by shooting an unarmed person without even knowing why? And shit, twenty minutes... A person can still die from a legshot. Arteries are a thing.

And that's what makes it so bad for the rest of the world. The US is like "Hey, hold my beer for a sec" and the rest of the world just had to watch while he starts climbing up the roof.

My liver tree is looking very lively. It smells strongly like iron, which means that it's doing great. I pickled one and sold it to a doll so she can enjoy sake with her owner. Meanwhile, the local witch is going through massive amounts of fresh hearts and ground organs. It's work-related.

I needed a quick break for JRPGs, so I'm playing a clicking game in which your harvest organs from trees. Forget Me Not: My Organic Garden. There's, like, a little store that sells magical organs (they contain a soul! - unless you pickle them) and you work in the greenhouse filling orders. I just got a liver tree, but it's still a low level and there's not much fruit. The hearts are doing great, though. And I've got little froggies that fill up my watering can, woodpeckers that help me grind unripe organ meat...

Nice little creepy cute game. One major downside, though: talking about it makes you sound like a serial killer.

Of course, the best advice anyone can give on any subject is to never take anyone's advice at face value. What works for one person may not even be an option for someone else.

And then there's the fact that there's no approach that's perfect for every girl. Some like being impressed on their first date, while others, like me, just want something simple and low-pressure. Good food is nice, but good food doesn't have to be expensive. Heck, right now, I'd be happy with a long Pokémon Go walk and ice cream (at a nice place where you can sit down).

Compliment something.  Most likely your date consciously dressed for the occasion, so pick an item they're wearing, be honest about it, and tell them it looks great on them.  A nice watch on a guy is likely something he may have paid good money for and loves and looks quite smart on them.  Nice shoes on a girl mean you're checking out the entire package and have an eye for something other than what's on her chest (:P).  It reaffirms their purchase, compliments their style, and tells them you're looking at something more than their eyes (so overused) and body (which is a little creepy).

Yes! It's so nice when people compliment something other than the obvious!

What I like to add is that you shouldn't make the compliment about yourself. Like, I've heard way too many men tell me things like:

"I love girls with long hair, especially if it goes past their waist, like yours"

Stuff like that gets weird fast, as if the guy is going through this checklist to see how I measure up to his expectations. I mean, of course you're trying to impress the other when you meet for the first time, but you're not trying to pander (or atleast, you shouldn't be).

Does that make sense? It's kind of hard to explain...

If you want to be a sap, compliment a person's smile if anything, 99% of the time they'll smile again just because you mentioned it.

Yep, that works on me, all right. (Only exception is when people compliment it in a creepy way...) However, I do feel that this is a compliment best saved for later. Like, you've spend some time talking, made eachother laugh and than BAM "You have a great smile, you know that?"

Fuck life, get stronk, destroy the world.

That typo makes me imagine you just rip this

out of the ground with your bare hands and start smacking everything with it.

Edit: no, wait now I'm thinking this

is your weapon of choice. At the very least, you'll strike fear in the hearts of all those people who never learned to eat their veggies.

Edit: ... there's two of them in the picture. You could dual wield.

And not sure about the stop looking for it advice, that doesn't work too well when you are a hermit that generally only leaves his house for work. No real opportunities to meet anyone. :p

Probably easier said than done, but: create opportunities?

Like, take some classes, join a club...

Speaking of water and random facts, I have one.

One of the Netherlands' major anime conventions is near Scheveningen, the popular seaside district of Den Hague. To Japanese ears, the name sounds a lot like 'sukebe ningen' - perverted people. Japanese guests often have a good laugh when they find out that they can visit the place and that it's not in fact a nudist beach.

Edit: I'm currently overthinking if I should wish someone a happy birthday or not.

I went to the beach like... twice. First time I was to young to remember, second time I was still young and couldn't do much other than stay close to my parents and play in the sand. So, I have no clue how I feel about the beach and sea. Which is pretty funny, seeing waves and dunes make up most of my family's coat-of-arms.

Well, the family does have good beard-growing genes, but my dad gets mistaken for Santa/a terrorist year round, so I'm not sure the pros outweigh the cons. Worse, I might be tempted to wear my hair in a bun and be mistaken for a spiritually enlightened glunte-intolerant vegan.[/quote]

Thanks :) I'm not entirely sure I'll ever be able to believe am I actually cute (despite me jokingly labeling myself as such on more than one occassion), but that doesn't make it less nice to hear.

In any case: it's really that bad, huh? I used to be totally okay with it, but it's starting to make things a little weird. In groups I'm often treated as one of the youngest, even when I'm nowhere near it. I fear I'll get too comfortable in that role.

Archery practice night, so I hung out at the guild. The subjects of the conversations were:
-Pokémon Go
-bad harvests
-population aging in rural areas
-housing prices in rural areas
-that it's sad people barely grow their own veggies anymore (I had goodberries up until recently, so I've got some farm cred)
-Pokémon Go
-holy shit, how can anyone eat 22 slices of bread a day?!
-Pokémon Go

I'm going to Vietnam next month for 2 weeks! \(^^)/

Take plenty of pictures and make sure to post them here! :D

Meeting online people in real life is a very odd thing. Heck, even seeing someones picture or hearing their voice is strange enough if you had no prior knowledge of how a person you've been interacting with looks/sounds, as it's often much different then you would expect.

A couple years back I was a guest on the Final Fantasy Union podcast for their Trivia segment.  I got a few online buddies from Final Fantasy Radio to listen and they were like "You sound so... normal."  Like they were disappointed.  Weird.

I had something like that once. "You look much cuter than I thought you would!" "I never thought I'd say this, but... cute picture!"

I'm not sure what people were expecting...

And this other time, people thought I was a dude, and after posting my picture someone still thought I was a dude. Do dudes have cute white bangs framing their androgynous face? Okay, no wait, don't answer that.

Anyway, I have an important question: Do I look like a minor? I've been asked for ID way too many times the past few years.

Personally, I think I look a bit younger than I actually am, but I definitely look over 20, and not in a 'a mature looking 17-year-old' kind of way.
