So I've finally started getting in the habit of writing everyday, and started a blog to go along with that. I figured I'd share my first post here, since it was inspired by the Conception 2 thread on these very forums:


Please share your thoughts if you have any, not only on the writing itself but on the blog and formatting as well. (Oh, and don't take any offense to the critical bits, Never am I referring to anyone on these forums since I have nothing but respect for this community)

The teal background and white text doesn't mesh well, imo. Unless you plan on sprucing up the layout of the blog, I'd go with a more conservative color theme. I use a white background and black text for both of my sites.

Let's be clear: Mangahere doesn't translate anything.  Legit or otherwise.  All they do is host other people's translations.  On top of that they (as well as Mangafox and many similar sites) are for profit, making money off of ads.  And to be sure, 0% of that money goes to the original creators or even to the fan translators, it's all for the people running the website.

If that wasn't enough then also note that they frequently lower the image quality from what the original scanlators put out to reduce bandwidth costs (and maximize their profits), and they've even cut credit pages so you can't tell who actually did the translation.  Basically, they're total scum.  Believe me, I've actually done scanlation stuff before and everyone in that community absolutely hates Mangafox, Mangahere, and their ilk.

If you're going to go with scanlations (and of course I would always suggest legitimate sources when they're available) then batoto.net is a much better choice.  Or even better just go to the scanlators' sites directly.

Not to mention that mangafox and so on are malware havens. Even with good antivirus software, you're still playing Russian Roulette with your computer.

This is why I stopped reading scanlations. I was reading a manga on Mangafox back in 2012 and got a virus so bad that I had to take it in for a professional to get rid of the virus. Granted I didn't have Adblock back then, but I still don't trust those sites, so I have yet to ever go back to them.

I'm watching the NFL Draft, hoping the Cowboys don't draft Johnny Manziel.

I'm super hyped for Zestiria's battle system. I came around to Xillia's system about 15 hours in, but right after playing Graces F, it just didn't feel like a good battle system at the start.

Nothing wrong with that.  I'd like to think that anyone can enjoy My Balls.

Though My Balls might not be appropriate for young children...

And this should be the theme song for it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLZbd0EvCs8

That shit is why my family just uses Roku to watch Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant Video. Cable/satellite service providers suck whale dick.

You never know who reads your blog. I mean, i wrote some really weird shit and my blog has about 11 million hits in the three years that I've been running it.

As a business major in university, almost every single one of my classes had group projects. I should have majored in engineering lol.

That's why I like self-directed learning. Classes can be useful if you actually have questions that need to be answered. For example, if I couldn't find the answer myself or if I didn't have any fucks to give to search for it, then that's where I see classes being useful. I've honestly only had one class where the lectures were necessary (my final finance class), but the other 40 or so classes I had to take at university seemed like a waste of time to go to.

I rarely eat food that I dropped on the floor because I don't clean them every day, so it is pretty gross to even think about it.

Did you apply the five second rule?

Getting ever closer to the end of Tales of Xillia. Just made it to Elympios (I know this is stupid, but I hate that some people pronounce it 'Olympus' even though the spelling is so different). I was originally determined to only play the game once, but the events of Chapter 3 and 4 have me questioning that. Maybe I'll be able to easily find the Jude-only scenes on YT.

You're at the exact same place where I left off. After all the crap that happened in Chapter 3/beginning of Chapter 4, I needed a break from all of the insanity haha.

You should be able to find the Jude scenes through YT. When I tried playing the Japanese version back in 2011, there were walkthroughs for both Jude and Milla's stories on YT by the time I even got the game, so I'm sure it's the same with the English release.

I finished Kuroko's Basketball. Getting past the absurdity of some of the skills, it's a really fun anime to watch.

For the spring season, I'm really looking forward to the Captain Earth series.

Also in the fall, I'm excited for the new Tomino Gundam series.

^ Games are probably what got me reading at a younger age when I initially resisted to do so.
I'd say games got me better with money management as well, but now I just get mad that I can't kill monsters outside my house for more exp and "gold".

Anyways.  Fuck school for ruining my life and ruining my dreams.  It's only when you're almost dead does it spit you back into the scary world where there are no decent jobs and everything costs money.

In our situation, we can't grind for experience because none of the 'monsters' we fight give any valuable experience and we're stuck in the beginning areas when we grind for 'gold'.


Speaking of school and work, tomorrow's a big day for me, as I finally get to meet the chair of the accounting department and figure out what I need to do for the work on my MSA degree.

I also started my job yesterday and spent yesterday and today taking classes and tests and watching videos. I'm still not even halfway done with all the testing, but I believe I start actual work tomorrow. I'll be working the night shift of 8 PM to 4 AM, so I'll have to readjust my sleep schedule and hope that doesn't interfere too badly when school starts in the fall.
