  1. It’s gorgeous and sunny and crisp, absolutely lovely. But, I mean, it could be a torrential downpour and I’d still say it’s lovely haha
  2. I’m feeling a little cruddy today (physically), but it’s nothing I can’t handle. My mood has been fluctuating between neutral and good. Overall, it’s a quiet and calm kind of day for me.
  3. 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!
  4. The last thing I bought hmm...probably groceries! Soon, I’m hoping to buy some new clothes, I have a desperate need for them, everything I own is falling apart or doesn’t exist!
  5. I’ve thought about watching One Piece, but man, it’s so huge! I don’t think I’ll ever bother haha
  6. 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!
  7. I can make cake, but I’m not gonna share
  8. Welcome to AF. It seems a bit quiet here, but people are friendly enough and more activity can always be created!
  9. 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.
  10. Currently reading The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
  11. Last night we watched Fritz The Cat. What a trip!
  12. The c word? obviously that’s referring to “casserole”
  13. Hello and welcome to AF! I’ve just recently returned here myself, it’s a pleasant place
  14. Hi! I don't know what else to say, soooooo.....
  15. Kohloo

    coffee or tea

    Oh my god, I totally missed the post about espresso and redbull. I think I would actually die! My heart gets panicky just thinking about it haha
  16. Oh! I've made crackers before! I have a recipe kicking around somewhere to use the discard from my sourdough starter for crackers. I like them, but I usually don't bother making them haha
  17. 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!
  18. 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
  19. Darn, why didn’t I think of a literal ship lmao. I was even trying to rack my brain for a name of a ship I knew, Toybox would have been a lovely choice haha!
  20. We’ve decided to go on a Star Wars pilgrimage, of sorts. Just watched Episode I tonight, and will be watching more soon!
  21. Ohhhh, you like Planetes! It’s one of my favourite (maybe even my number one). Recommend any similar hard sci-fi shows??

      That's really difficult.  "Hard" SF is pretty uncommon.  Softer stuff is so much easier to make, and usually pays as much or more than SF that tries to do the science well.  Most of the audience can't tell the difference anyway, so why bother?

      That said, my favorite is probably Ghost in the Shell.  Another cyber-themed one was Dennou Coil.  It played the tech kind of loose, but it never quite veered into "fantasy" territory.  I'd consider the first "Aincrad" arc of Sword Art Online as "hard" as well, though the science part was mostly just a plot device to bridge into the fantasy story. 

      If you're looking for space-themed stuff there's Space Brothers, though that's more a slice-of-life type that just happens to feature contemporary NASA astronauts instead of school kids.  If you can find it I thought Moonlight Mile was decently "hard", as was Rocket Girls. 

      MM is probably closest in theme and style to Planetes.  It is a bit more "adult" and serious than Planetes, but if you liked Planetes then it might be worth a look.

      That's all I can come up with at the moment.  Like I said, there's not much out there.

      I appreciate the response! Other than Ghost in The Shell, because I already know and like it, I’ll have to give a look into the others you’ve mentioned :)
