  1. Love to sleep face down, on my stomach. Don't know how or why but after some tossing and turning, it's the position I wake up from the most.
  2. Hits so close to home. Glad that you've got amiable people around, it certainly does make all the difference.
  3. That's the spirit! Same, my favorite restaurant around here is a place called Osaka Sushi. I've been to a really amazing restaurant just outside the city where I'm from. It's a small place with some historical background but I'll need to ask some friends if they recall what the name was. Now I'm curious to see if it's still around since Covid and everything. You guys are making me hungry. Italian is also good.
  4. Wonderful that you're taking care of your mother. I do the same for mine. She was involved in a bad car accident and almost paralyzed. It can be a challenge at times for sure. Gosh, it's got to be really difficult saying goodbye to a parent. My father is getting sick from years of smoking. I didn't know him too well, so I feel like time is taking something precious away. Sorry about your lab! I love every pet I have and it's the worst saying goodbye to a friend. They really do make you smile in ways only they can.
  5. Well, it's not Japanese animation but I've been watching Captain Planet and Gargoyles.
  6. Ameri is definitely best girl and great waifu! 😍😆👍

      Yup, Nobara is part of my top 10 favorite characters on my MAL profile, though I do feel kinda bad of bumping off Uo from Fruits Basket as a result :P

      Oh no! 😆 I get kind of OCD about bumping characters off of a favorites list. It just feels like there's a sudden imbalance in the universe, haha! 

      How is MAL? Never been a member but it's tempting. 🤔

      As far as keeping track of & rating what I watch, I like it fine. Even though it lists the romaji titles, you can search using the english equivalent. Also, kinda fun to sometimes see how what I like actually ranks in public opinion 😂

      I don’t post on their forums very often though. It’s more active, but doesn’t feel as personal as on smaller forums.

    Loving it so far. I'm currently at Heisenberg's factory. Visually, it's a beautiful game!
  8. I had side effects from the second Pfizer shot. They lasted three days. Fever, chills, muscle pain, slight headache off and on. The fever was probably the worst of it for me.
  9. It was hot and humid yesterday and most of today but it started raining out of nowhere. It's a sunny shower, loving it!
  10. Re-watching the classic Sailor Moon series, man. I forgot how relatable Usagi is. It's also way more witty than I recall.
  11. Yes! As authentic as I can get―other times―not so much. Like California style Sushi.
  12. I'm soooo pooped. 😫

    Anyway, I managed to build a new wall and some shelves yesterday. I went in with sandpaper and varnish....

    And I'm all out of sandpaper.


    At least the wall held up and I didn't hammer my thumb. 🤣 Painting a whole ceiling is killing my neck though. The new storm windows are looking great too. 🤩






    Hope you all have a great day/night. Thanks for being my home away from Home, AF! 🥰

    You all help me keep my sanity. 😆👍

      Great job! I love the color. What kind of walls are those? I'm so used to seeing drywall where I live. I like the rough texture. 👍

      Sorry about the late response! There was an accident where I work and things were chaotic for a few days. Then I got a little sick with my second Pfizer vaccine, it took me three days to start feeling better. 😖 Did a lot of things for Mother's Day too and trying to finish my renovations. 

      @Ohayotaku Aww, come on! You guys make me laugh and smile and feel good about being human. xD 

      @EWR-47 (Shakes fist) I don't need to get any worse! 😭xD 

      @mechaBD Thanks! :) I'm actually modeling the room itself after an anime (I know, I know- very weeb-ish xD ). I think it's just textured drywall, I'm not sure myself. Was told that the room was an addition to the house, so it was probably made to be cost-effective? It's the only wall in the whole house that's textured like that but I got lucky because the room it's being designed after has only one textured wall as well. xD 

      By the way, I love your avatar! 🤩 Gundam TB nearly made me cry. 😭

      This was my inspiration!



      The wine-red color is also based on one of the character's hair. I thought it was a nice decorative combo. 😆

  13. Had a fiancé for a good portion of my life, now I'm married to my work. I've got five furbabies but I do plan on adopting someday. I've had enough practice with my brother's kids.

    Amvs with me!!

    Just gonna post this here.
  15. Some really good champagne or wine.~ It's how I've been surviving pre-apocalyptic sustainment thus far.
  16. Hope you had a good day! 😄🙌

      @ZilaI really appreciate you checking up on me, that's nice of you. I had a bad day turn great! Wby? 

      Discovery of the day: I think I move on from people pretty fast if I'm given a good enough reason to xD. And I'm proud of this.

      Today was especially wild. Got into a bit of a misunderstanding with a friend, and had my first experience with being ghosted. And while it was VERY sad at first, looking back, I think it's very interesting to see how I dealt with this. My friends usually find it pretty difficult to move on from people, they keep journaling about it for months. I was over it within hours. 

      My approach to the problem was to talk about it with a friend of mine that I'd known for about 1.5 years now, he helps me with my thinking when I feel overwhelmed hahaha. We discussed about the issue, and after I had my fair share of reasons to not take this personally, I moved on. I don't know if it's coz I'm not very intimate with people in general, or rationale is just my strong suit. Either way, I caught on with the fact that I appreciated the person without a contingency plan (as in, I appreciate her existence regardless of whether she felt the same way) and how it was the uncertainty that I was sad over, and not the rejection, ig? 

      Anyway, apologies for the rant. Just thought it was an interesting topic to discuss about :3

      No problem! I'm really thankful for our conversations on Insta, you've said some nice things that brightened my day. 😊👍

      I'm doing good, just an exhausted mess atm. 😭 The universe is testing me but the jokes on It, my patience has no limits! 👊🤨 I was born into crisis. Shaped by it. Learning to make the perfect batch of Gougères, with a broken oven and limited amount of cheese.

      Aww, I'm sorry about that! Glad you had a good friend that you could turn to and help you out. I'm kind of in limbo on communication myself. Though I haven't had a computer for a while, I've been using my cell. I'm not sure if my reply ever got back to someone online or if I said something dumb. I'm too nervous to send another in case it was the latter. 😅

      Someone once told me that if it was easy getting over people than they weren't the right kind of people meant for you to suffer with. Others have said that hindsight gives you perspective and you end up hurting when you least expect to. 🤔 Sages, am I right?

      Regardless, it sounds like you have a good idea on how to address these matters and a good friend too! 😊 Wonderful things to have in life for sure. Nice to know you got some answers and took away something to benefit from. 😃

      "Anyway, apologies for the rant. Just thought it was an interesting topic to discuss about :3"

      Don't worry about it! Lots of relief comes from venting stuff out, the majority of it is pretty healthy and more necessary than we probably think. 😆 If you ever need anything just shout: gougères! 🤣🤣

      @Zila This whole paragraph was really sweet, thanks for this :3

       I was born into crisis. Shaped by it.
      Care to elaborate on this? ^^. I'm interested to know what inspired this sentence hahah. Tbh, I'm kinda bad at communication too lol. For me personally, I end up saying pretty regrettable shit to people just coz I have a lot of difficulty reading the room, which I why I often get called tactless, or end up driving potential significant others away the moment I start to let loose 😂. But overall, I'm happy with the friends I have. Although almost all of my friends are ones I made online, (so I missed out on the hang outs big time), I'm very content with the friends I have. What I missed out on, I made up for with quality. And about messages gone wrong, I don't think I have a lot of awkward moments, what I DO have are ones that annoy, offend or even creep people out lol.

      Someone once told me that if it was easy getting over people than they weren't the right kind of people meant for you to suffer with.
      Alright, I kinda relate to this and kinda don't. I think this sentence relates more to how the deeper the emotional connection, the harder it is to move on from them. Coz honestly, the "self" that we try so hard to discover is heavily influenced by who we associate ourselves with. However, I don't also make every single friend with the intention that they're all gonna work out like magic, I just kinda do my thing hahaha. 

      Others have said that hindsight gives you perspective and you end up hurting when you least expect to.

      Yep, i think that's a sentiment I can get behind. Speaking of sages, I think we all have some of that within us, some of us just like owning it and make it a part of ourselves that we like showing. I, however, only live for showcasing my exclusive edgy anime meme collections xD. Feel free to ask for some, if you're feeling brave enough 👀

      Speaking of gougeres, I don't think I've ever actually had one, so might add that on the list of new things to try, along with tacos and burittos.

      Fun fact:


      You give me Ravenclaw vibes, and I absolutely love it 🤣

      With that said,


  17. The new Mortal Kombat movie. It was good, I liked it.
  18. Same, got mine earlier in April. I get my second one on May the 4th but I'm kind of nervous. Three people I know got sick from the second dose for about two days. On the plus, it's May the 4th (be with you) day, so I'll mentally be ready in case there's a Revenge of the 5th to come. Wishing you and your mum the best!
  19. I know what you mean! AoT really got me in the feels, especially because of Eren. Can't believe we have to wait a bit for part two of S4. The waiting is taking me on a ride and I'm kiiind of crossing my fingers that the conclusion will be a little different from the manga. For sure! Most recently it was Violet Evergarden and Wolf Children. I was a mess for a good few minutes. Lots of thought provoking anime too but Berserk will always be my number 1. I just want Guts and Casca to have a happy ending.
  20. Yes! I really enjoyed that one. Thought it was a nice contrast to former RE titles and I love that they've risked quite a bit to take it into a new direction. Village looks incredible, it's like they're taking elements from other RE games and mixing that with fresh concepts. Utilizing current hardware too. Let's not forget the wonderful Tall Lady, Dimitrescu.
    @0ctoP1e I had found it on Pinterest here: https://pin.it/1BH13J6 Though I'm not sure who the original artist is. I'll need to do some digging for sure!
