  1. That sounds horrible, I'm terribly sorry you had to deal with all of that. Most of what I've been reading during this crisis are indeed hesitations due to financial concerns. It's best to go to the hospital based on this type of severity of any health concerns in the future. They have a lot of programs and medical aids out there that can help your family pay for bills. I mean, you probably don't need to read some random person spouting but when I read this I was anxiously worried about your health. Good to read that you're doing better now but wow, what a trip! Wish more industries focused on getting necessities out to smaller communities. The States have made things difficult for farming trade these last couple of years. I want to believe that this situation will yield better oversight in their regional effectiveness. Sending your farming populace all the best! They are truly the backbone of essential product. I'm glad that your sister is helping out, she's got a wonderful heart. Stay connected and strong. Personally found that the best part of suffering and recovering, is venting it all out of the system. People making you laugh or sending their wishes is a good comfort. It's such a human thing to express one's phases of dying. Great that you're finding things to do though. I'm worried about one of my friends. I think he's melded to the sofa now. Told him to pick up a hobby but without work he's been reading the back of cereal boxes- eeh. You're really making me want to play Stardew Valley though. Sounds like an adventure only a true fandom-er can appreciate. When I first played Skyrim, I couldn't divorce the guy I married when I was testing out the whole marriage process. Ended up murdering him and his body just kept spawning back in my house. Pretty awkward when my new husband just stepped over his corpse to get to the kitchen table for a seat. Chuckling because you're probably reading this like- what's this crazy person talking about? Thanks for a trip down gaming memory lane, nonetheless. Honestly, I like the resourceful nature of your bot. I just imagined that you went into quarantine and came out Tony Stark. There's an origin story here, I know it! With all seriousness, as someone that doesn't have the physical experience for coding and programming; this is very impressive to me. I've actually been gardening as well—though I lost some sunflowers in a recent fire. I'm planning on planting pumpkins this year. Currently trying to grow parsley and mint since I lost some during the move into a new home. I'm making an area for tomatoes and getting permission to plant an apple tree on the property. We have a strict rule about planting so far from oak trees here. Sounds delicious! What an amazing crop. Actually, my uncle commented that if a pandemic doesn't bring anyone together than he doesn't know what will. You guys might be onto something with sharing your productivity. For one thing, I feel like planting more. Hmm, the efficiency is catching! How about naming your bot by anagram or abbreviation compiled from its functions? Good luck with everything, and thanks for sharing. Wish I could do more than hope that you stay healthy but we're always here for you if you need a pick-me-up! Stay safe out there.
  2. I completely forgot about the nacho cheese! I blame being distracted by all the types of Tostitos. Hope you enjoy yourself here. There's a lot of topics to rummage through. Staff if top quality—very helpful, informative and engaging. Everyone here is generally nice and communicative.
  3. Welcome to the forum! Ask away. From what I've seen, there are a lot of individuals here that have an interest in classic anime.
  4. Hi, Ren! What kind of anime and games do you like?
  5. You know, in hindsight, I think being alone really helped me to fortify myself. As much as I mentally needed someone, I think that having them communicate their worries would have put my stomach in knots of anxiety. Thank you for the concern, it warms my soul. It's funny, I've never considered what type of person I would be under predicaments such as this. It just all kind of happened naturally. Now that you mention it, I think a lot of people would surprise themselves when it came down to it. Aww, thanks! The thought alone is such an illustration on what a wonderful heart you have. It makes me happy to come across people that care a great deal. Although, I'd probably decline any help from anyone to keep them safe. Just until I was 100% sure of what I was sick with. Yeah, what I gathered from this experience is that this particular hospital was less organized than I thought they would have been. Not sure if it's like that everywhere in my area or what. I did not know what to expect but I definitely didn't expect them to reach so far with the whole fever thing. Thank you so very much. I'm feeling way better within these last couple of days! Stay safe and healthy on your end! Thanks for reminding me! I was planning on sharing a little about my pets when I saw a Pet topic on the forum. Always best wishes!
  6. I hereby dub thee Terra, of the Round Table Roll. I would truly mention to have followed you into the blackest pits of uncertainty but my luck has been a bit unusual. You probably don't need that looming. All I could think about was Monty Python. "Tis but a flesh wound!" Maybe Young Frankenstein? "It could be worse-" I needed this laugh! Many thanks.
  7. Wow, the character has a nice profile. I've always wanted to test myself on creating convincing looking armor but I'd probably fail horribly. I really like this character, thanks for sharing! That's the cutest thing I've ever seen.
  8. Do you like chips? If so, what kind? What sort of dip are we talking about here—while we're at it? Does it go good with horror anime or mech? I'm a salsa and tortilla chip on a horror weekend, type of person. Getting back to Tokyo Ghoul soon. Mouthwatering! Er, the chips not the anime. Welcome!
  9. Thank you, I'm actually not sure who I'm trying to vent to. Myself, probably. I'm definitely going to look back on this some day. I'm still trying to process everything. Yeah, I went to the ER and no one could go in unless they placed you into groups first. I told them that my breathing issues were due to being Hypo. I had only suffered something similar back in middle school but that was ages ago. I've taken Synthroid all of my life, which has kept me healthy for a long time. I do deal with temperature issues, mostly I'm too warm because I constantly feel cold and try to warm myself up. Guess this time it just wasn't in the readings. I'll probably never know what I came down with, officially. Respiratory infection was all they said but the nurse told me they had to group by symptoms and would send you somewhere else to get tested for COVID-19. They didn't even test it where I was at because they couldn't get enough kits out here. Guess it came down to my thyroid being the cause of my difficulty breathing and not something more related to the disease itself. They also took a chest x-ray and things looked okay on that end. You're absolutely right, worst time ever to get sick! Would have been nice to have gotten a more specific diagnosis. If you don't hear from me in a week, send toilet paper! Right now I'm truly grateful for a lot of things. I don't believe I'll be taking so much for granted anymore.

    Gaming Photography

    Exploring the boundaries of Photo Modes, screenshots- etc. in gaming.
  11. From the album: Gaming Photography

    Tried the macro lens on this one.
  12. Added Gaming Photography to the image galleries. Anyone is welcome to it. Visiting the Galilei Space Center because it's what you do in quarantine. I'm finding the Watch Dogs 2 cityscapes more thriving and beautiful than Marvel's Spider-Man. T-Bone and Jordi are my main reasons for this game but damn, can I spend a long time exploring this impressive city.
  13. At least your brazen honesty in what you consider faults is a merit to the change you want from them. Sometimes people find it difficult to make the time for such assessments. Whether from lack of juncture or purely out of avoidance. Can't necessarily say that it's a step in the right direction because that's something that will be ultimately up to you. However, it sounds like a good idea to change the things that are causing you unwanted negativity. Accepting change can be difficult, no doubt. Have you tried introducing the concept in small amounts? Perhaps shift perspectives? Instead of focusing on the process of change or how change might effect what's comfortable to you. Why not examine adaptation? Look into the idea that nothing is really changing, only adapting to newer conditions. You can always replace an old habit or inspirations with a type of revision that can be well within the realm of compromise? A bit of advice on facing people directly, if I may? Yes, it's important in situations that call for it. Just be sure to gauge what's deserving of your time and energy. There are plenty of individuals out there that will emotionally latch themselves onto you for the thrill of it. Make sure that it's worth the extra stress and adversity. Sometimes turning away on multiple instances can feel like you're making underwhelming confrontational decision. In reality, it can be quite the opposite. Oftentimes, there's a lot of wisdom in what others can relay to you and it might benefit you a great deal to lend an ear. Remember that people are all different strokes and what can sound like harsh advice or an unwarranted lecture, might be something that has your best interest. If there's something I learned in business, among a variety of people, is that everything you say is subjective. To yawns, to boos, to agreement, and debate. There's actually something consolatory in that realization. No matter what you say those on the receiving end will have a similar situation in forming their response. Remember that it's about vocal fairness and well within your right to dispute. If you're worried about any anxieties try to note that people have things on the forefront of their minds. Their priority is not going to be any blunders you might have. This can be an opportunity to strengthen your voice. Once you're ready, they'll definitely hear it out. What kind of things are you interested in sharing with others? If you don't mind sharing. What is it about communicating your feelings that make you cringe? Does it happen more or less around certain people? Do you have the same results whether online, through isolated texts or in the physical presence of someone? What don't you trust others with? Anything specific? It can actually be a good instinct to have but it does require a balance. Maybe not reflect on it being something defective in your personality and see it as something that simply needs adjusting? Personally, I think that coming to realize these frustrations is a good step to self improvement. Firstly, don't be so hard on yourself. There's nothing abnormal about your circumstances. A lot of people are challenged with phases and self-discovery, constantly. You mentioned that you don't like change, so I can understand why it might be strenuous to accept new territory. Try involving yourself in certain interests but under different environments? Remember that you don't need to completely gut yourself out in order to change and explore new things. I love art. I found this place where artists can come together and participate in painting the same subject. We relax, we talk, judge each other's work with good humor and fun. Casual drinking and snacks. Loved that it was a place I could explore, mix with and do what I was interested in. Testing the comfort zone without fully removing the security. Also, if I may insert—if you secretly disagree with your friends then how can you be sure they're not going through the same awareness? What if they're speaking from places they might think one another wishes to hear from. Try discussing change with them. Maybe it's something you can work on together? If not all or the majority of your friends then at least a few that will share their company with you?
