      That is quite an assemblage of characters used in the montage footage.

      It's not like kids actually learn anything that's useful in school...save for maybe Home Ec and Shop. I guess Advanced Algebra ( I & II ) has its uses if you're planning to go into literal Rocket Science or Engineering.

      I know this isn't really the place for this but, author and former educator John Taylor Gatto's main thesis asserts that school does the following to children in his book, "Dumbing Us Down":

      1. It confuses the students. It presents an incoherent ensemble of information that the child needs to memorize to stay in school. Apart from the tests and trials, this programming is similar to the television; it fills almost all the "free" time of children. One sees and hears something, only to forget it again.
      2. It teaches them to accept their class affiliation.
      3. It makes them indifferent.
      4. It makes them emotionally dependent.
      5. It makes them intellectually dependent.
      6. It teaches them a kind of self-confidence that requires constant confirmation by experts ( provisional self-esteem ).
      7. It makes it clear to them that they cannot hide, because they are always supervised.

      He also draws a contrast between communities and "networks", with the former being healthy, and schools being examples of the latter. He says networks have become an unhealthy substitute for community in the United States.

      If you wanna talk, drop me a private message.

      Very little of what I was taught in school was of any use to me in the job I ended up doing.

       

  5. my cousins are at my house for two days. Even thought they are here since a couple hours ago, I'm so exhausted... My parents even have to sleep in my bed since my cousins parents are sleeping in their room. So here I am, on my computer while I still can.

  6. Just finished middle school technically even thought for me I go from sec 2 to sec 3. Even thought I finally have my sweet sweet summer break I still feel down.

      Congrats on the progression in school! 🥳

      Sorry you're still feeling kind of down though. Can you recall how long you've been feeling this way exactly? 

    2. Soramee_

      Soramee_

      @Hällregn i don't recall exactly but I think it was 3 months ago or 2 months? I don't know why but I'm having trouble remembering anything so I can't really give you a precise answer.

  7. I’ve waited for this weekend for so long !!!

  9. I feel nothing and it's even worse than last month. I think I'm starting to be depressed. I don't have energy for anything. Even doing what I like or going to school. This may just be a side effect of the medicine I take and my cold. At least that's what I hope. I'm also forgetting everything from simple things to what I love. I don't remember which emotion are which and I'm just feeling like shit. I have never felt this weak in my life. I don't know who to trust and I feel like I'm trusting myself less and less. I'm making my parents worry about me and I feel like there is no hope anymore.

      Sometimes I lose all interest in everything I love doing and find no joy in anything, so personally, I can relate. I struggle with anxiety, and when it gets severe enough, it can spill over into depression. I'm so sorry that you're having such a rough time with it. I wish I could do more than offer up words, but for what it may be worth, I hope you feel better soon, and I hope you find your spark again.

      I'm sorry you're going through such an awful time. This sounds pretty rough, in a concerning way. Have you tried asking your parents to go with you and speak to a doctor about it? It might help give you proper care and clarity. 

      There's always hope left, even when it doesn't feel like it. Keep it in mind if you can't keep it in heart right now. 💜

      I don't know your story but, it sounds to me that what you need is a personal confidant - a "sympathetic ear" that you can release this energy around privately in harmless ways. Unfortunately you have stated yourself that you have difficulty trusting others; I honestly don't blame you for this. I am sorry to say that decent people are in very short supply in this particular era...at least in most places outside of Japan - where the people there live in a tribalistic society with customs of hospitality where everyone is expected to take care of one another personally, not because it's their job or because they're being paid to do it. While I have personally never been over there myself, I think this is one of the best aspects of Japanese Society that is portrayed in anime. I realize that to some extent the main characters are being presented as an ideal to be emulated, not necessarily because it is common behavior over there. Even so, does this make such a tight-knit social structure any less desirable? It's a rhetorical question. I think it is something worthy of meditating on. We can talk in PM if you would like to.

  10. Finally I have IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the first thing my mom did when seeing the figure is looking if she could see her panties… I finally understand where I got my degeneracy from.

      @Animedragon Thankfully the worth of yen has reduced by a lot. Now if something cost 1000 yen it will be equivalent to around 10$ CAD! 😃 

       

       

       

      But the shipping price also went up a lot and it has nearly double so... rip my wallet. 😭

    3. Animedragon

      Animedragon

      Yes, the shipping cost can be high. But I often found it was cheaper to buy direct from Japan and pay the shipping than buy the same item from a local Sci-Fi & model shop.

    4. Soramee_

      Soramee_

      @Animedragon that’s true and most of the time the figure will always look unused!

  12. Just seen that you have OniGiri in your favorite games. it was my first MMO RPG ever and one that I really liked. I'm surprised that there is also somebody that has played it on this forum.

    1. Deeath

      Deeath

      @Soramee_Yes! I did play it a lot when it was open for console...now it's just open for PC, and I can't play it because I don't own a proper PC..sad times. 

      I enjoyed it while it last though! 😄

  13. Finally... I finally have internet...

  14. It has been such a long time since YouTube changed their interface

      It was super good!! I cried 2 times in less than 20 minutes. I even started to feel emotions again (well just a little bit). It's my first vn ever and I'm glad about it. Just need to finish the bad ending and I can go to the true route. I won't spoil anything about the game but here is the op:

      That sounds and looks incredible. Actually, I might try it myself! 🤩

      @notEli I’m sure you won’t regret it! 👍

  16. I know this is weird of me saying this on here since nobody really know me and but I just feel like I need to say it out. I'm passing trough a hard phase right now and I just want to say what is on my heart. recently I've been starting to feel pretty much nothing at all. For example when I watch anime, read manga, play video games, interact with other, listen to songs, just live a normal life, I can't feel happiness, sadness, anger and pretty much every sentiments out there. Even hope. It's as if I was a moving human shell or a robot. I've always been hard on myself and I've never tried to fix this so I don't remember how to not be hard on me and actually feel like I got weight took of my shoulder. the problem is that I'm totally lost. I don't what I should do, what I shouldn't do, how I should act, etc... and as a plus I can't stop always thinking about it. At school I always feel out of place, I'm always stressed and nobody resemble me. Even thought I'm pretty much friend with all the guys in my class. I'm sure one of you would think I should maybe do nothing so that I can resolve that problem but I know that I will regret it for the rest of my life if I do nothing. I don't want to just accept it and do as if nothing happened because for some reason I totally despise that. I don't know why for now but maybe it's because I feel like I just evaded the problem and didn't actually fight it. I don't know if it's the right thing to do or not. maybe I'm just being to hard on me again for the hundred time and it's just me not accepting reality again. When I do something good I don't feel good and when I do something bad I don't feel bad. I hate that completely and I just want to resolve my problem so that I can feel emotions again... really.

      Maybe It's also just puberty. I don't know

    2. Soramee_

      Soramee_

      It may seem like I abandoned every thing but actually it's the inverse, since if I do not resolve that problem that also mean that my enjoyment for anime/manga/video games etc will reduced and this is a big NO NO.

      It's not weird, a lot of people come online to vent because they find it more comfortable and private to do so. There could be multiple reasons for your situation. Like burnout or boredom, e.g. the process of wanting/seeking a more productive lifestyle. Not that you might come to dislike or cease your current hobbies but that they may feel out of place for now. Advice is good to have online but always listen to your gut in the end. Never close off these conversations with your loved ones. People that are in your daily life. Family and close friends. Their aid is essential in the sense that they know and love you better than anyone else. :) 

      I would try exploring new hobbies that require more pursuit or things that might give you a sense of active achievement? Maybe look into your current hobbies and search for fresh inspiration? Think about where you would like to be in five years and try working towards that? 

      Don't worry about it too much, you'll find your way! 

  17. My dog came to see me

      @Animedragon understandable. Before I had two dogs, but one of them died of cancer so now we only have this one left.

      A dog is part of the family, so It's always sad when your dog dies.
