Good luck with all that you have to do!

I agree yeah, organizing new home stuff is one of the most tiring, exhausting and annoying things one can do. Thankfully, usually one has to do it only once every few years.

Thank you!

Next friday most of it should be settled, hopefully.

It is the first time I will actually work on my flat because I have the money now to extend my comfort. So far I have lived with the absolute minimum. No messy flat, but there is like nothing for quests (no dining table, not even a seat). I want to change it because I would like to invite workmates or other people to make gaming evenings since I know some of my workmates are videogaming. Otherwise they would have not come up with Mario Kart as carnival theme.

I think in about a month I should have overcome the hardest part of the year and can take a breath.

The one thing that makes sense in Neptunia xD

To be fair, behind all the parodies, jokes and meta humor, the plots are very consistent and never stray too much from the logic of the world (and if they do, it's usually just for comedic effect). That's one thing I absolutely love about the games I've played so far. It's not just funny, the stories are good to great for the most part (I wouldn't have named Megadimension Neptunia VII as my current favorite game if that wasn't the case).

Sounds great! Make sure you get a good rest once everything is over! I know how it feels to be burnt out completely. It's no laughing matter.

As for me, I take back every bad thing I said about Atelier Ryza, because I realized my complaints (that the menial tasks didn't serve any purpose) were completely, utterly unfounded. Also, @Armagon wasn't kidding: the plot got going and holy crap, we went from 0 to 100 crazy fast. I mean...

... this is something I'd normally expect at the end of a final dungeon, not the first major one! Also the game pulled a Shining Resonance Refrain on me. Because the first actual boss you fight?

A freaking DRAGON.


Holy hell, Atelier. You did it again. You had my curiosity for ten hours, now you have my nearly undivided attention.

As a little bonus, here's something that I found absolutely hilarious during a sidequest that asks you to make something to lure out bugs for some journalist person:

A certain German saying is: Erst die Arbeit, dann das Vergnügen.

It is for a reason a true saying in my case.

 

Also ordered tickets for Dokomi festival next year.

I want to cosplay Estelle Bright, it would be the only opportunity there.

However Idk if I will go to it since it might come into conflict with my planned US trip regarding time.

This is a good attitude, probably some people here do not have.

Actually I am not one of those who does things in the very last second. Good planing is important for me to simplify things.

Me either, usually. I just like the saying. I do tend to procrastinate somewhat sometimes, but that's usually only when I'm sick or otherwise occupied. Even then, I usually try to get my work done, because the earlier I get it done, the earlier I can do whatever the heck I please.

And on that note: I just finished one of my two presentations I needed to do (it's a lecture on how the German language was influenced by other languages in the past and which words actually have their origins elsewhere. I laugh at every language purist now). One down, one to go!

I have to admit I wanted to have set up my flat at the end of September, but illness ruined all my plans. Had to cancel everything. 

 

As for studies good planing is the way to success! 

The presentation sounds interesting. 

One thing I have notunderstood yet is why JRPGs ruin so many words from the Nordic / German language? I mean some weapons are obvious from the Nibelungenlied or etc., but seeing German numbers to twelve and Meisterschwert always confused me.

Ruin? As in, mistranslate?

It's due to language structures. The Japanese language and character script structure means it can't properly display right the words from other languages. Then when you get to localization, it also doesn't help that whoever is in charge might fail to realize what the word actually is, so it doesn't translate right, either.

Illness sucks like that, yeah. My studies have lengthened by an entire year due to crap like that.

And yes, I agree.

I suspect the Japanese either A) know their own mythology and landscapes well enough that it ceases to be "fantasy" to them (which is why most of their fantasy games are usually medieval Europe in setting) or B) they just thought the names sound cool when pronounced in Japanese. Rule of Cool is a factor in many things, after all.

Which brings me to the name of the main town in Atelier Ryza, which is called "Rasenboden". I had a bit of a chuckle when I read that, because for all the non-German speakers, this probably sounds like a pretty exotic, fantasy-esque name, when in reality, it just translates to "lawn ground" or if the "Rasen" is used as a verb, it would be "dash ground" or "speed ground" (when we're talking about cars), all of which... don't exactly make sense as far as place names go, do they? XD

Tbf, with op Characters like that, it's very hard for anything to feel like an asspull or something. I mean, shares are basically power of friendship when CPUs believe in each other XD

I used to be like that before my illness, kinda. 

I used to cram exam in a few days so i can have a long ass summer vacation without any exams at the end of it. Many people just moved exams to October, i was like ''nah, i am doing 4 exams this week,  2 after, then 2.5 Months completely freeeeeeeeeeeee!!'' xD

Now...

nada a dizer sobre seu idolo lula

Não ligo de um jeito ou de outro, de verdade. O presidente é o Bolsonaro, eu tenho coisa a mais a me preocupar. É o fundo do poço mas prefiro o Lula presidente mesmo do que ele reeleito. Apesar de que a soltura dele não tem nada a ver com isso, já que quem tá condenado em segunda instância ainda é inelegível. Mas no fundo do fundo, acho contra intuitivo reclamar do Lula com o Bolsonaro aí.

E no fim das contas, o Lula nem foi um presidente ruim, o primeiro mandato foi bom e o segundo razoável. Não gosto da personalidade dele (na verdade detesto), mas ele só se radicalizou depois de sair da presidência pq achou mais oportuno politicamente, mas provavelmente voltaria a ser conciliatório se eleito. Ladrão por ladrão, todo dia eu sonho com o Temer presidente de novo. Única coisa que me incomodou foi ele espumando contra a globo que ataca Bolsonaro o tempo todo, mas fazer o quê, o que é discursinho anti-mídia (que eu detesto) comparado com gente que defende a volta do AI-5 e é ligada à milícia?

Today, i made a very good discovery. I bought these

EI-dANGWkAAr8fs?format=jpg&name=small

EI-dA7KX0AAIpmg?format=jpg&name=small

This is important because they don't make these in the United States. They're super common in Venezuela and i assume other Latin American countries but in the U.S? Nah. Usually, i get these from relatives who are visiting from Venezuela. But today, i found a place that actually sells these (and a bunch of other Venezuelan treats that are really hard to find in the States). And i'm being 100% serious when i say this: EVERY AMERICAN SNACK PALES IN COMPARISON TO A SUSY! 

In case you want to know what it looks like

EI-gpZ4XUAUIKup?format=jpg&name=900x900

It's basically chocolate.

I realize I miss the Cipher characters. They were amazing, really.

They were. And there's been more additions to them since then which is why i was really hoping we'd get the full crew in Three Houses but i guess not (i've seen the datamines).

What you can do today, always postpone to tomorrow (yeah, i put that and the other German saying into Google Translate. I was curious). In other words, my art history quizzes. I literally do these on the day they are due (but to be fair, they are by far my easiest assignements this semester).

As mentioned before, it's both a case of translation and also just rule of cool. I find that Japanese media nowadays just like to use foreign words (with the exception of English because it's pretty much a second language there). It's not just German, i've seen cases of Latin and Greek used in these ways as well.

Norse is definitly the most popular though, i feel like. If your anime or JRPG has a giant tree in it, it's probably called Yggdrasil.

Oh so that's what it meant. I knew Rasenboden was German, i just didn't actually know what it meant until now.

Yeah, good old Yggdrasil. 

I have not played that many RPGs yet, but I have seen this place's name about a half dozen times yet. 

 

Also I want to taste Suzy.

Not as Susy; but those things are called Suavicremas over here. Or at least, they look too similar to Suavicremas... probably "Same thing, different name in other countries" applies here.
