  1. Exhausted, trying to juggle a social life and failing. I had surgery on my thyroid gland since it was literally choking me. Sleeping and turning my neck has been a pain but it's getting better. Got to bake a few things for October before the surgery! Pretty nervous about the tension going on right now. It's been getting a little heated in my area and I'm worried about my friends and family. Surgery has given me an excuse to have more time to myself. I've been reading up a storm! Got through six books in half the month, it was blissful. Right now I'm sitting by my window, listenin
  2. I'm actually a newbie to forums as a whole. The majority of the time, I grew up on IM and email. Had only ventured onto a literature forum in the past but it got taken down after some years. Not actually sure what prompted me to looking up anime communities to discuss anime with but I ended up here and I like this place. It's too bad I couldn't see it at its best! I think it has evolved to be more convenient. With better technology and access to it, it's pretty natural to want to utilize it. Quick apps and easy sharing. Though I hope forums never die...
  3. Just started Ristorante Paradiso and I like it so far. Also started Run With the Wind. Really good but I think Kakeru is just Tobio Kageyama in disguise!
  4. That's a great discussion towards mentality in general, within the anime community. There should be a line to consider. Being attracted to the beautiful artwork/design of a character through aesthetic sensory (colors, shapes- visual appreciation), is okay. I think if someone finds underage characters attractive in a romantic/sexual way than it warrants some careful contemplation. I've also seen people confuse gratifying artistic design with more intimate emotions. Which might be all sorts of confusing to those getting gaslit over it, so tread carefully. Really discern what you mean by attracti
  5. I turned the television on one day and was like, cool.
  6. Hope you get the hang of uploading the perfect pfp, sorry it got you frustrated! That's indeed not a good first impression but we're a wonderful community and there's plenty more we can offer. I promise, hehehe! Welcome to AF, looking forward to you having better experiences and enjoying your time here. What was your favorite thing about visiting Japan?
  7. Welcome to the site! You're at the right place if you like anime and manga. You can show us your art if you want! We have a very creative community here to share with. Hope to see you around.
  8. Welcome! Always glad to see new people find this place. Hope you enjoy your time here. The community is super nice and informative. If you ever need anything, there's always someone helpful and attentive. I certainly love this place!
  9. Removed my art from AF and uploaded it to Instagram instead. I've never been on Insta before, so it's pretty weird. xD Also, removed the Gaming Photography photos I had and created YouTube vids with them instead. Kind of felt like I was spamming the gallery, now I have a place to share them. ✌️😃 Links to both in my signature. 

    Been spending time at my local sanctuary, rotating with a small group to help fill the COVID-19 gap. My eldest dog might have cancer, not sure yet. He's scheduled for a biopsy. :( 

    Thinking about jumping back into med school but I'm stuck between a lot of things at the moment. It's also getting closer to the end of the world (aka my birthday). 

    Other than that, I oddly got caught up in making Halloween decorations but it's been a great distraction.

    Visiting my mother tonight. I think we're going to have movie night with my siblings. Something we haven't done in years! Going to suggest Pretty in Pink, what do you think? 

    So what are you all up to, AF? :)

  10. Haven't played Final Fantasy XIV in ages but after the new Final Fantasy reveal I got inspired. Might play Myst later. Maybe dig out the Dreamcast and play some Skies of Arcadia.
  11. Unpacking some gaming stuff but here's what I got so far. A few steel cases. Still need to find more. I've actually got a ton of collector's editions and game merch. I'd like to find a place to display before posting. Also need to find my Dreamcast, N64, SNES, PSP, some Xbox and Atari games. I'll try to screen my PS3 and 4 library for some digital purchases.
  12. So, I finally found a box with more anime.
  13. On the plus, my mom has gotten into anime and it's been amusing giving her recommendations. She recently finished Death Note and talked to me for almost an hour about it. Now she's watching Haikyuu!! and thinks it's the funniest show ever. She even got a bit of nostalgia over her school years and just generally when she was younger. Which was unexpected but Haikyuu!! tends to work like that anyway.

    Yearning for Fall

    I hate that where I live, Trapdoor and Wolf spiders end up in the house if not consistent with professional yard treatment. Without doing so, I've found about seven or eight of them inside throughout the year. I feed some stray cats and they keep them away at night. Sometimes, I will find two or three of them dead on our walkway from their paws of fury. Fall and Winter are the only times those little buggers disappear for a bit. I've face-planted an orb-weaver when I was trying to learn to skate again. Every joint and muscle locked as it latched onto my shirt. My friends looked at me li
  15. Haven't had much time to watch anime like I want to but I just finished BNA. It was cute although kind of disappointing. Loved the art style.
