      Today I ran into some pricks that pissed me off so much I wanted to roll up and jaw check them.

      Sometimes when your really struggling and keep your struggle to yourself you'll run into a few of these particular people who believe because you struggle or live in poverty your at fault or you made poor choices. They believe they can say whatever they want. Be held to a different standard then working folk.

      It's never that simple though.

      While its true many people can drag themselves out of the worse situations and when many put their mind to it they can overcome, every circumstance is different. You can't paint one entire brush on a whole canvas. You're not gonna get a different color.

      I'm not one for excuses. If I did something wrong I can admit it. I'm the type of guy that won't ask for help if I can avoid it. When I do ask for help-and it isn't often- its a hand up. Not a hand out. 

      But then you have these group of people who undermine the very meaning of struggle. They're so blessed with people in their life that CARRIED them or could use money carelessly without any repercussions. They'll utilize nepotism and explain to you your faults are the reason you failed in life. Nevermind they have 5 or 7 people in their life to lean on. Those of us that have to brave and endure alone when we have no one. Or someone who needs to lean on US. And when we do take the risk-the chance to reach out- we're looked at as indolent. We working people who barely make ends meet. 

      I'm really tired of running into these sort of people. Entitled shits who think they own everyone. Or everything.

      Quite a few people have to adapt a survival-like mentality just to survive... but i've been told countless times by countless people people are good. You can't adapt a survival mentality and leave room for morality. That's bullshit. Only people who can do that are people who never got their hands dirty.

      These people I ran into today. Hell I swear. Their shit must gold.

      Violet Evergarden

      What do you think about a mannequin wanting to understand love? Let's take aside my biased rate for a moment and dive into this miraculous world. It's great graphics and story telling are certainly out of the ordinary. High Budget = High Quality All of my expectations have been fully satisfied. The story takes place in the early 20th century. Precisely in the aftermath of a war where the main character has been a part of. Unfortunately, the anime ended with a cliffhanger. What happened to the Major was what I asked myself throughout the whole series. Don't google it if you don't want to be spoiled. Violet Evergarden is a bunch of unique stories from people who Violet meets during her journey as an Auto Memories Doll.

      Soul Eater

      Soul Eater is one of my top ten favorite anime and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a series that has action mixed with tons of comedy. Every character has their own quirks and personality. The comedy doesn't take away from the action and the series pretty much sticks to the story instead of running all over the place like a lot of newer anime tends to do. The graphics are done quite well and again it's definitely a unique style of artwork that I don't see in a lot of anime. I will say however, if you watch the anime in the English language (let's face it, there are anime that have been dubbed in multiple languages. Not a lot but there are a few; thus I cannot speak for them), there are some minor mistakes. One noticeably is during an episode later in the series (can't remember which one that it was in but it was quite a bit later in the series) where the female doctor and Dr. Stein are having a conversation on the correct way to make coffee however what they were making was tea, not coffee (the box they were using was clearly labeled "Tea"). So if small things like that don't bother you then you'll definitely like this anime. Anyway, if I would have to choose one thing that makes this anime stand out from the others, it would have to be the artwork, definitely. The characters would be a close second.

      Zombieland Saga

      Having finished this series earlier today,  I'm left asking the question "Is the glass half empty or half full?"  The premiere episode made me laugh out loud, but also made it seem likely that it's gimmicky sense of parody wouldn't stay funny through the entire season. In that sense the decision to explore the girls' backstories and personalities was definitely the right decision to extend the life of the series and led to some truly emotional moments (Lily's is the best example but Ai & Junko's as well). Unfortunately, there were too many missed opportunities to develop the characters and story further while there was only one other episode that matched the premiere episode's comedy. Then there's the fact that despite music being a major part of the show, I really didn't care for the songs (with the exception of the truly angelic harmonies of Hikari e While the finale turned out better than I thought it would, it's emphasis on still unanswered questions, when there is no official confirmation of any sort of follow up left me feeling unsatisfied. So  in the end, while it was definitely entertaining and better than the concept behind it led me to believe, it unfortunately felt like it could'a/should'a been even better

      Banana Fish

      I haven't fully watched the entire series, but I am in love with Ash x Eiji already! Ash is funny, he's trigger happy, selfless, and at times he's bratty and stubborn. But he's a cute blonde that knows what he wants . . . and clearly that's Eiji! Even the way the two have developed compared to when they first met to later in the series, their development truly pulled away at my heartstrings. Nevertheless, I still need to watch more of it so that I can better grasp the story itself. IRL keeps me from watching episodes completely. Once I watch it completely, I shall return and rate this again.

      aced my exam, with not flying colors, but with moderate score, doesnt matter couse i barely studied it, so SUCK IT AHA~!
      though, to be honest, even if i failed, at worst my grade would be around 2.50 or something, but since its still at 1.75...i can go ahead and not care for finals, couse, at worse itll be 2.75 >_>
      though, knowing me, id probably still study, even if its just skimming through, i somewhat have a overpowered memory ever since i started meditating and jogging >.>
      also, today was somewhat toxic, maybe its couse i was awake 27hours >.>
      i mean kinda sucks i couldnt extract blood from that 7month old baby...and show of to my junior <.>
      now that i think about it, i could have extracted blood BELOW hematoma'ed area, i blame being awake for 27hours on that part, i clearly was not in the right mind tsk
      give take, she's like me, but semi better, she's scared of extracting on kids, makes me wanna protecc her, especially since she a qt >.<
      oh and im reminded, someone centrifuged IODINE, rather than blood, they sure f*cked that one up, but no harm was done, sooo~
      obligatory inspirational song,
      for some reason, this song is hitting me hard, especially knowing how much i used to act, being alone and shiz
      give take, undertale is still fap, #genociderouteisbrutal
