  1. Hoping to get a deer later today... wish me luck!

      A... deer? Hold on. Cute, four legs, small wiggly tail, likes munching foliage. That deer? 😮

      @Kreideprinz Yes that kind of deer lol. Didn't get one this year but roommate got two! Lucky!

    3. Kreideprinz

      Kreideprinz

      Aww! Hopefully next time. Love deer, they are so precious. 🥰

  2. So not a big achievement or anything but I did drop 4 pounds!

      Kampaaaaaiiiiiiiii~

  3. Thankful to have the friend that I do

  4. Sorry haven't really been on or playing much games lately. Anxiety and depression has been at an all time high.

    I have been watching NANA though which for some reason helps boost my mood.

  5. I was good for months but then BAM! I got hit with allergies, ugh. 

  6. So uh I made the mistake of playing Pokémon until almost 3:30 in the morning 🥴

      Been there.  Done that.  :D  Books and anime too.  I have to be very careful to not get sucked in.

    2. EnviousEnvy

      EnviousEnvy

      @efaardvark Yeah oops, lmao. I got sucked in big time. 

  7. I hope everyone who was hit by Hurricane Ida are okay!! 

    1. efaardvark

      efaardvark

      Yeah, I have people in Louisiana who are saying it was the strongest to hit them since Katrina!  I hope that isn't the reason for the (ominous?) silence here in the forums the last couple/few days.

      Meanwhile hydroelectric dams in Minnesota are being shut down for the first time since 1988 due to drought and low water conditions on the upper Mississippi.  Wildfire warnings are even going out for the area too.  Guess it isn't just us here on the West coast who have to worry about that kind of thing anymore.

      Crazy stuff.

      @efaardvark 

      Oh jeez... yeah the nearest wildfire towards me is 3 hours away. I'd rather take snow over fire any day... 

  8. Life has become so hectic right now. My anxiety just won't quit either...

      @EnviousEnvy That's terrible! Hoping that things improve, can't imagine having to deal with something like that. Above all else, stay safe. 

    3. Kreideprinz

      Kreideprinz

      @efaardvark Wish folks didn't have to suffer this way. Horrible what happens. Stay as safe as possible but I guess that's easier said than done when the issues are difficult to conquer to begin with.

      @efaardvark I'm in Wisconsin so as far as I'm aware there isn't any wildfires here. I just can't believe how far the smoke is traveling to reach my state. 

      Stay safe out there.

      @Zila I'm far away from the wildfires (we don't have any in my state that I'm aware of anyway). However the smoke traveling all the way to even my state is just... damn. Anyway, I'll be safe here at least.. 

  9. Haven't been active lately due to being out of state enjoying myself. Got to see my first large aquarium in 22 years (1.3 million gallons of water! 😯), hung out with friends, tried this snack called dragon's breath that allows you to blow smoke (Freeze dried cereal)! Also treated myself to some yummy taro milk tea with Boba and did some shopping. So I didn't have much time for anime nor games these past few days!

    Been in the mood to rewatch the series from the beginning 

    1. mechaBD

      mechaBD

      I have been thinking about doing the same thing. I barely remember the first two seasons at this point. lol

    2. EnviousEnvy

      EnviousEnvy

      @mechaBD This will probably be my 3rd time rewatching seasons 1 and 2. Granted it's been a year now and my internet is currently down for maintenance at the moment so might as well 🤷🏽‍♀️

  11. Status update on my coughing:

    The doctor gave me some medication that was supposed to numb my throat to help suppress the coughing. Unfortunately so far it only works for a little while then I go back to my coughing fits. I'm currently waiting on a call to set up an appointment to have a camera shoved up my nose which will go down my throat. 

    My anxiety is freaking out and even though they said they will numb me up to the point it's similar to a dentist visit I'm still afraid I'm going to feel it and hurl all over. 

  12. Upgraded from a 50 inch TV to a 70 inch Samsung. Can't wait to play Mass Effect on that thing 😍

    1. efaardvark

      efaardvark

      I don’t have room for a 70”!  Been trying to decide if I even have room to replace my 47” with a 55 for about a couple months now.  (It would fit in the space, technically, but I’d have to get a new mount or something that would let me access the ports.  Don’t want to have to dismount the whole thing just so I can plug something in.)

    2. EnviousEnvy

      EnviousEnvy

      @efaardvark Could mount it to your wall like I did, lol. My first wall mounted TV and I'm glad I went that route. So much more space. I'm trying to convince my fiance to do the same with his 😅

    3. efaardvark

      efaardvark

      @EnviousEnvy my tv is already mounted to the wall but it is a flush mount that doesn’t allow the tv to be pulled away from the wall.  This isn’t a big problem with my smaller tv because I can reach my arm around it to plug things in if I need to.  However the bigger TV would butt up against the wall on one side and a cabinet on the other, leaving only about an inch of clearance on each side.

  13. I'm only going to say this once...

    Yes I have days where I'm quiet and then the next I'll talk your ear off. I also have tics I can't control 100% of the time and I may have developed my first vocal tic due to the dang pandemic. So please if all you're going to do is mute me in chats because I'm annoying or whatever then don't invite me to them. I'm self conscious as it is (and please don't constantly bring up my tics as it makes me even more embarrassed and no I can't control them 100% of the time). I know my tics get annoying, how do you think I feel? I literally live with them daily.

    I don't usually bring up stuff like this but I'm literally on the verge of tears tonight because I'm having a tic attack and had a "friend" bring it up on a voice chat because it bothered them. 

    Thank you for reading my rant. Hope the rest of you have a great night/day.

      In conversations I tend to ramble or else struggle to come up with things to say, leading to a lot of awkward silence. Forums let me compensate at least somewhat for it, but I’m hesitant to participate in Discord or chat groups.

      And it’s hard to decide which is more awkward. Just sitting on the sidelines because you don’t feel you really have anything to contribute or taking the initiative but no one else seems interested in the topic. But if you decline the invitation you’re anti-social.  The intention may be to make you feel “included”, but it can actually make you feel more isolated.

    2. Q-Tip

      Q-Tip

      At the expense of making myself somewhat vulnerable here, I want to tell you about one of my own 'tics'. So, I have OCD, fun little condition (see: not exactly) with intrusive thoughts and compulsions that, while I do have some level of control, they drive me mad until I can satisfy them. I think the more well-known manifestations of obsessions are rituals, where you need to do things a certain way, or in a certain order, or a certain number of times. That's not me. I get speech compulsions (and other irrelevant ones). 

      Do I talk to myself? Hell yeah I do. Sometimes it's because I just have an urge to say a certain thing. I always make sure I'm alone when I let loose but there are days where I'll be driving and telling my coworker they're a lazy piece of crap. Or I'll be in the shower saying "I'm sorry" in 20 different tones, accents, languages, whatever. 

      But they still happen in every day speech. I repeat myself a lot. I might ask you "Are you okay" 3-5 times until you get upset and stop answering. And being ignored even though I know I'm being totally annoying still gets to me and invites a whole party of intrusive thoughts in. Then for the rest of the day I can't even form a complete sentence; I stumble over my words, pronounce them incorrectly, sometimes mush them together, I forget how I was about to phrase my thought and stop mid-sentence to reform it- sometimes several times. I'm told this is also annoying.

      Writing is so much easier. I wish I could put subtitles on myself, but, yeah. I know it's not the same as what you have to deal with, but I hope I can show you a little solidarity. It would be nice if people would focus on what you're saying rather than how it comes out. We're not all perfect. I hope your day gets better!

  14. Finally got my glasses today! Everything looks weird and I hate having to adjust to them, bleh.

    1. Q-Tip

      You've had them for a couple of days by now, any improvement? 🙂

    2. EnviousEnvy

      EnviousEnvy

      @Wedgy Definitely but I may have to have the frames "bent" a little since they hurt my ears. 

  15. I really need to set up a sleep schedule and stick to it. Already past 3AM and still awake. Going to try and sleep now.

    Been playing Mass Effect too much I think, lol.

  16. Went to the eye doctor Tuesday and I pick up my new glasses in about two weeks! 😀

    1. Ohayotaku

      Ohayotaku

      Yeah, same day glasses have never been a viable option for me. Apparently it takes a good bit of finishing to not wind up with something like this in my case

      Nothing like a fresh pair of specs! 😆👍

    3. EnviousEnvy

      EnviousEnvy

      @Zila Right. Apparently I was seeing 20-25 instead of 20-20. Also the glasses I have right now (my old pair) I had to put new screws in dozens of times 😅. I've had these since high school and the colors are faded bad (they were black with silver stars. Now the stars are almost gone and the black is a faded gray color). 

  17. Looking forward to the doctor appointment (as much as I hate going) . I can't wait to get rid of this flipping cough...

  18. Thought this was pretty yesterday

      It's gorgeous! 🤩

  19. I honestly don't know how many times I have to explain to people outside of my friends that I am NOT anti-social. My interests are literally video games, movies, anime and coloring; which majority of my family and those I come across are not interested in therefore I am quiet. 

    Also with being autistic I go into my modes of not speaking and sometimes I don't realize it. So most of the time people need to try and initiate the conversation to get me to say anything. 

  20. Haven't been on in awhile, oops.

    Have to help with my step dad after he had surgery so that's my excuse, lmfao.

    1. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      It’s all good. Spend time with your dad as I think he’d appreciate your company after a surgery. Hope he gets well soon.

  21. Started back at the gym and I'm excited to start feeling better about myself. ❤❤

    1. Tefutakato

      Tefutakato

      That’s great! Good luck on your journey.

  22. 15 more days until SOS PoOT is officially released in the US! No sleep for me!

    1. LonelyPoet

      LonelyPoet

      15 days is a long time to not sleep lol

  23. Had to go to Urgent Care the other day due to my mouth suddenly swelling (and not because of a tooth) and my ears itching really bad. Doctor is guessing it's from a swollen salivary gland. So I'm on meds for that and my ears. On it for 7 days but if it doesn't clear up I have to go back in.

    I hope all it is is the salivary gland and not anything serious...

    1. LonelyPoet

      I would have thought it was your tonsils. I'm sure you'll be okay though.
