  1. I got the librarian job!!! I start in June! Thank you Benice and FireFenrir for your well wishes ๐Ÿฅฐ
  2. I am hoping SO BAD!!! I have a lot of anxious energy about it, so I'm trying to funnel that energy into doing fun things in the meantime! My wife spontaneously bought me some Pokemon cards (I've not had Pokemon cards in years!) and now I'm tempted to try and get one of every Pokemon. This was far more feasible when there were only 151, haha!
  3. I had a job interview for a librarian job a couple of days ago... I think it went really well, and now I am just waiting until I hear the final verdict. I'm trying not to be too confident or over-excited, because this would absolutely be a dream come true and a turning point in my life! \(ยฐฮฉยฐ)/
  4. Oh wow!!! Rinea looks so elegant! Dang, if you keep up the practice there is going to be no limit to what you can draw! I really struggle with drawing humans with realistic proportions - but this is clearly a skill you're mastering!! Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚ Hello!! Congratulations on starting to learn Japanese - the journey of learning a new language is always a fascinating one, and I have huge respect for people who are able to do it! I've heard so many things about Ghost of Tsushima... I recently splurged on a PS5, and so now I can finally catch up on all those PS4 games I've been missing out on (as well as PS5 games, whenever they eventually exist, haha!) Ghost of Tsushima is high on my list, along with Red Dead Redemption 2 and Persona 5. (All of them are such huge games..!)
  5. Hello FireFenrir! I'm happy to see that you're still here, and I'm very pleased to hear about your drawing progress. If you ever feel comfortable sharing, I would love to see! Practice makes perfect, and each day you spend drawing will teach you so many things. Keep it up! ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Thanks for the tip! I hope you'll keep me updated on your Yakuza adventures ๐Ÿ™‚
  7. The only (ONLY!) thing I didn't enjoy about the combat were the enemies with guns. Getting stunlocked by them sometimes was a little frustrating! But otherwise it is such a joy to play, and so creative in its ridiculous finishing moves. Oh man, the Mahjong/Shogi games are something I never sunk much time into... mostly because I could see how much of a time-sink they could become if I were to try. I did, however, get fully invested in the hostess club sidequest! It has already been a number of years since I played that game. Maybe I should track down a copy sometime! (It's one of the games that never made the cut when it came to my move across the pacific, haha... Many good games were given up, tragically!)
  8. It truly has such a great story! I hope you have a great time with it. I'm curious how your experience and appreciation of the game might change between watching playthroughs and playing it yourself. (Certainly the satisfaction of the combat will be far more enjoyable!)
  9. It is nice to see you too! And it's nice to see Kiryu looking so happy there! Which Yakuza game have you started with? I've only played Zero so far, but hope to continue with the series. I've heard so many good things about it!
  10. Hello forest dwellers! I hope life is treating you well. Things are picking up for me recently! I've started studying to be a librarian (which is about the only profession I can imagine being passionate about), and yet... despite being busier, I find myself falling further in love with the games I play! I recently started playing Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen - drawn in by its visual novel gameplay and Fire-Emblem-esque SRPG gameplay. It's a wonderful experience so far! Such an enjoyable world. How is everyone doing? ๐Ÿ™‚
  11. People not wearing masks is the most frustrating part... It is an act of simple human kindness and consideration! Plus - you can get masks with so many designs! I bought myself a mask made from floral Moomin fabric and I love it!! I hope that youโ€™ll be able to enjoy your favourite places soon, friend. That sucks to hear ๐Ÿ˜ž It is obvious that allowing travel and โ€œnormal lifeโ€ will mark a increase in the spread. The need for business apparently overrides that, however ๐Ÿ˜• I hope life has been going okay for you otherwise?
  12. Been back at work the past couple of weeks. Itโ€™s nice seeing people, but weโ€™re all just pretending things are back to normal. 2000 students are about to return to the university in our small town. Canโ€™t see that going down too well :x Otherwise, life is well enough! Took my wife to a nearby waterfall this morning. The forested trail to get there was beautiful. It felt so old, with huge rocks and trees engulfed in thick moss. So refreshing!
  13. Writing fiction would be fantastic! And writing fan fiction is as good a way as any to get into it. You donโ€™t have to worry about creating worlds and characters with fanfiction, and instead can focus on improving writing in fun and interesting scenarios! (the same logic applies to fan art, which I enjoy creating)
  14. Fantastic!! Iโ€™ll definitely keep this in mind when seeking new books in the future. Thank you, Wraith ๐Ÿ™‚ As an illustrator, I can relate to this problem!! I would love for it to be more than a hobby, but it is very difficult to find opportunities. What kind of work as a writer are you seeking? BTW everyone, I apologise if my replies are slow. Both my jobs just started back up again, so Iโ€™ve gone from 100% free time down to like 25% ๐Ÿ˜…
  15. Nice! I've really gotten back into reading as a hobby this year. Currently reading The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. I'm only about a quarter through, but so far I would definitely recommend it if the sound of a fantasy heist novel appeals to you!
  16. So what do you do when not drinking whisky, Wraith? ๐Ÿ˜›
  17. That's unfortunate!! Maybe someday fabric will become more affordable. It would be cool to see!
  18. Haha, dammit Marth ๐Ÿ˜‚ Have you started your Riki plush yet? o uo
  19. That will be a strange adjustment!! Might be fun though. School in pyjamas! Please feel welcome to stay and chat ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you! With every day that passes, plans feel a little clearer. Itโ€™s difficult to plan efficiently with the world being a little crazy right now, haha! I hope you had a lovely birthday! Your new profile picture is cuuuuute Hello again Wraith! You were drunk last time, too ๐Ÿ˜› Iโ€™m glad Marth is keeping an eye on you at least
  20. I've started trying to plan my return to STUDENT LIFE. I'm looking into doing a Library Sciences master's degree (since I'm struggling to get a library job without one). The funny thing is, even though I live in the USA now, it's waaaay more affordable for me to just do online classes at a UK university. It's a little tricky figuring out the best options, but I'm feeling pretty good about actually making steps towards what I want to do with my life. I'm not super excited at the thought of having to do lots of studying and essay writing again... but the less I think about that, the better.
  21. Ahh! I thought she looked familiar but I couldn't place it! ๐Ÿ˜›
  22. With that in mind, please feel free to PM me if you ever want to!! I understand the potential awkwardness of public rooms like this. Who is the fox girl?
  23. That's great!! That sounds very encouraging. I was just looking at pictures of a lot of the cards. I love the artwork SO much. It's very tempting to go to ebay and see if I can find some for a good price...
  24. Don't worry! I find it very useful information!! It is welcome here ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you I've always been intrigued by Cipher! Is it difficult to play due to the cards being in Japanese? I really love some of the artwork, though.. Even if I didn't play the game, I think I would enjoy collecting the cards purely for the art. Good luck finding fans nearby - that would be amazing! โ˜บ๏ธ I can relate to what you are feeling, friend! I often find that I am affected by the emotions of those around me, too. If someone is sad in any way, it's very hard for me not to share that emotion. It's tough to balance out, especially when this comes from significant others!! Video games can be such a lifeline in times like these. It's such a form of pure escapism, and so many games are designed to be joyful. A favourite for me for when I need to escape and just be happy is Super Mario Galaxy. Heck, even just jumping in that game is pure joy ๐Ÿ˜› I wish you well! Please consider this a place to come and chat any time, be it about videogames or struggles. There will be someone here to chat with ๐Ÿ™‚ (P.S. Not sure who the fox girl in your icon is, but she is cute!)
