  1. I recently picked up a set of Douglas Adams books at the thrift store for cheap. It’s got the five Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books and the Dirk Gently books. I just finished the Hitchhikers books (what fun reads those were!) and now I’ve just started Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.

  2. I think for this, your best option will be to just experiment around until you find some styles that you like!

    Another thing to keep in mind, there are different styles of Bobby pins, it might be worth it to try out different kinds and find which ones work best for your hair. You might also find different clips/barrettes that could look good too!

    As you said, finding men’s styles of what you want is pretty difficult. Try looking at and wearing a few different women’s styles and see if you can’t modify them at all to suit your tastes better. Another option could be more androgynous hairstyles. 

    Best of luck!

  3. I think forums, in general, started slowing down awhile ago. There’s so many different ways to communicate now, and many of these are instant (or at least nearly instant), which might make forums feel slow or archaic. 

    I think it’s worth it to stick around or pop in every once in awhile though. Sometimes older members will stop by after an absence. Or you’ll see the occasional spike in activity. It’s not much, but it’s not quite dead yet! 


  4. Nah, I wouldn’t live there. The language is the biggest thing for me. And while I could learn it, I’ve never wanted to learn Japanese and I’m already dedicating myself to French. 

    Would I visit it? Maybe, but honestly not likely. There are other things/places I’d much rather do/visit before Japan.

    Sure, I like some Japanese food, but we’ve actually got some of the very best available here because we have an even larger variety/availability of fresh fish where I live. Most of the Japanese restaurants here are run by Japanese individuals and even they attest to better quality ingredients (namely, fish) here than in Japan. 

    So, it’s not like I’d be visiting Japan for the food. And I don’t collect anime/manga related items, so I wouldn’t be going there for that either. The culture stuff might be fun, but again, there’s other places much higher on the list that I’d like to see first. 

    The opportunity to work in Japan though? I’d do it if I were you, assuming you’re willing to learn at least a working knowledge/capability of the language. It’s a fantastic opportunity and you’d have a purpose for going there, which I think would be a lot more enjoyable than just visiting or going there on a whim.

  5. I used to have the same problem here, not ever finding time/motivation to read. As for Andy (my boyfriend), he didn't enjoy reading because he's dyslexic and it takes him a long time to finish a book. 

    It's become part of usual routine to relax at bedtime and read before we go to sleep though. I love it because it's getting me reading more, and he loves it because he's actually enjoying reading now. Plus, making a point of having some no-screen downtime before I sleep is a huge positive for me. It's impossible for me to sleep a whole night through (I'm constantly waking up), so being mindful of what I'm doing the hour or so before bed helps at least make it more bearable!

  6. 5 hours ago, Illusion of Terra said:

    I've actually seen Prometheus. What did you think of it? And let me know how it compares to Covenant.

    Don't have any plans watching something in the near future though (might make an exception for Weathering With You 😂 )

    I actually really like Prometheus! It has a different feel, but it's still good. Not too sure when we'll get around to watching Covenant, but I can't wait :)
