I don't know if this reply counts as late or not since we haven't established a rhythm since my return, but a month and some change between messages will probably have to do for now because my winter break is over. I'm taking one more class this semester than I did last semester and I'm also still working 2-3 days a week. The transition from full time stay at home internet user to semi-functioning member of society is bumpy and I still retain some of those qualities from back in the day. After spending either hours at work or hours at home doing school work I'm mentally drained and desperately crave some form of the internet. Usually this translates to me browsing reddit for random gossip and memes, watching youtube videos, and/or playing some video games. It's a part of me now. I need to waste at least a few hours on the internet every day being absolutely unproductive otherwise the pressures of every day life get to me in a bad way.

I've devised a schedule to space out my school work as much as possible so I have maximum free time to waste. It requires that I have no social life to interfere with my work time or wasted time, and thankfully I lost all my friends two years ago so it works well enough for me. I am afraid however that it's not sustainable long term. That one day I may be required to do too much in too short a time, with none of my scheduled breaks to recharge, and be overwhelmed. It's a fear I've carried my whole life, really - that I can't do what others do. That one day my 'person' charade will be exposed and I'll be told to go back home to my room because I don't belong with the regular people.

And yet I try. Because I don't know what else to do.

I'm off my anxiety/anti-depressant medication if you couldn't tell. I'm too old to be on my parents insurance anymore (26) and the American healthcare system is a good joke. Instead of $5 a month for pills it's $165. It's more cost effective to just be sad. Maybe I'll try that Japanese suicide note novel/series while I'm in a bit of a downer mood.

Let's see...what did I get for Christmas? Some clothes, some books, some cash, and that's mainly it. My dad got me a Delta gift card so the next plane ticket I buy to visit my girlfriend is more affordable so that's pretty nice. About putting all my eggs in one basket: yea, you're about two years too late. I appreciate you looking out. I would do the same to you if the situation was reversed. We've talked about our dependency on one another several times and have both come to the conclusion that if something happens to one of us the other is fucked six ways to Sunday. No getting around that. I think that's how all love is? Oh well, nothing I can do about it.

I've never seen Vikings. I've heard good things about it from you and the internet in general, but never bit the bullet. Right now I'm watching Twin Peaks. It's a weird mix of mystery and humor. It's dark at times, but also has a healthy dose of 90s cheese. I just finished the first season and should start the second relatively soon. I'm also trying to read 20 books this year which translates to me reading mainly fantasy books just about every day. I recently finished Robin Hobb's Ship of Magic (It was amazing) and just started reading N.K. Jemisin's The Fifth Season. You probably don't care, but there's so many good fantasy books in the world and I think it's a shame that more people don't read them. George RR Martin isn't even regarded as one of the better writers in the genre. He's just the one that got famous. I've probably read 10 times more great stories in the past couple years than I've watched the previous 24 years of my life combined.

Anyways, I'm tired now. I'll see you when I see you. Later.

Lmaoo, sure, that's exactly how it happened. My friend Zach (0taking09) had it in his top 10 for as long as I've known him and I thought it was about time I watched it. Little did I know that the story would be so touching and best of all, handled the taboo subject matter responsibly, instead of sensationalizing it like most anime would do. I'm so glad they played the story as is and didn't take sides. It makes their decision and that ending that more bittersweet. Windaria has been on my radar for awhile, just never bothered to add it. Ajin gets too much flack for semantics and honestly, this kind of dumb hive-mind mentality that MAL users seem to adopt in order to avoid having an opinion. Being "edgy" is not a bad thing if handled right and it's about time that a shounen in the 2010s did just that.

Macross had lots of derpy faces, like there's a girl in the show with green hair (Milia is her name, I think) and all of the time she was on screen, they drew her eyes cross-eyed or just plain fucked up lol Just look at these images:

I like how our last convo was Dec 2015 XD

You've seen Paradise Kiss, really liked it, and still haven't watched Nana yet. Get on that!
Btw, really liked your take on the anime Touch.

Depression is a bitch. Take your time. Besides, I was gone for two years between messages. You're allowed a few months. My sister got a new puppy as well (some kind of Australian sheppard mix) a few weeks ago. She brought it to my mom's house on Christmas eve and during dinner it was whining and yelling non-stop. Pissed all in it's cage too. I'd forgotten how much of a hassle puppies were.

It's been a while since my families first dog. We first got her when I was around 10ish years old. She was a golden lab puppy one of my mom's friends found on the side of the road. She was the sweetest dog I've ever met. She never bit anyone, didn't growl, got along with our two cats, and would literally try to break up fights between them. In her early years she would even eat my sister's underwear if you left the laundry room door open. Never my underwear mind you - just my sisters'. And when you'd take her out you could watch her shit out panties. I thought it was great. But alas one morning when she was around 11 years old she started having seizures. Like literally dozens of them. We rushed her to the vet and they did some tests and they told us she most likely had a brain tumor and there wasn't anything they could do. So we put her down that day. I know how much it sucks to lose a dog. That was four years ago and typing about it still made my eyes water. She was a friend. And at the time I didn't really have too many so it was pretty rough. All I can say to you is take it easy. Hope you're doing okay.

Thanks for the accept!

Much weaker compared to the book of course, but as a stand alone kind of thing was very nice. The ending itself was indeed quite weak, but still reading everything complete the experience.
Tumerking Nov 7, 2016 5:45 PM
Don't take this message as a "I'm back on MAL!!!" kind of thing, but over the past couple years I did sort of cut the very few real life friends I had out of my life for various reasons so aside from my girlfriend I don't converse with anyone at all and I miss it a little bit. Not a lot. But a little bit. I'm glad you're still alive despite your profile's wall of depressing quotes so I have someone to shoot the shit with every once in a while.

I agree, the Shingeki human vs human arc is shitty and boring, but it does eventually revert back to humans vs titans and get much better. This past chapter was basically nothing but world building and a long history lesson about humanity pre-wall. In fact, as I'm typing this Eren and crew are standing in that basement that Eren's had a key for since like...chapter one? Maybe the mangaka was just stalling with the human fights until he knew where the story was going, but it's definitely moving along now.

I actually read The Count of Monte Cristo. I wasn't all that blown away honestly. It's very slow and long-winded and The Count's master revenge plan requires too many convenient leaps of logic. I get that it's a classic, and the language can be very beautiful sometimes, but that's about all it had going for it. And a lot of people hate the last couple Game of Thrones books. They're supposedly boring and aggravatingly slow. In fact I think I first heard that from you? I'm not going to waste my time of those.

I get why you'd think working in a bookstore would be better than working in a fast food place, but I wouldn't be able to handle that. Bookstores are extremely quiet and slowish. Working at one would give me way too much time with my own thoughts and my anxiety would drive me crazy. I actually started a new job in the back of a Chinese restaurant a couple weeks ago and it's so fast paced I really don't have any time to think. My anxiety doesn't have a chance to fuck with my head so it's actually not too bad. Psychically it's exhausting as hell, but it would be much more mentally exhausting to me if I had to quietly sort books or casually operate a register in a store. I just can't deal with being in my own head for that long. I need the fast pace to distract me.

First college: A four year university away from home. I didn't know how to study and just overall was not ready in any way. Got put on academic probation and transferred after the first year.
Second college: Moved back home and went to a community college to try and get grades up so I could transfer into a different four year university.
Third college: the "different" four year university. Half way through I gave up because of depression/apathy. Flunked out my first semester.
Fourth college: 2 years later. Living with my dad in the city now. Go to a different community college because I don't know what to do with my life. Drop out after two semesters because I don't know what to do with my life.
Fifth (and current) college: Another community college. I just want a fucking degree so I can get a fucking job so I can move to Belgium and live with my fucking girlfriend. I'm majoring in Computer Networking and I don't really like it, but I don't give a shit at this point. I'll get a boring degree and I'll get a boring job as long as I can be with her. That's all I care about at this point.

"How does a college drop out hook up with a European medical student?" I agree that it sounds crazy so I'll just tell you exactly how it happened step by step. I went on reddit and found a place where people could post a thread asking to talk to other people. I posted a thread saying I was depressed and just wanted somebody to talk to, etc. It wasn't romantic at all. So anyways she replies and says she's depressed too and we start text messaging each other over skype about a bunch of random things. Game of thrones, video games, our lives, etc. I thought her picture was really cute, but we hadn't been flirting or anything - just talking a lot every day. So about 10 days after we first texted I decided to tell her I had a crush on her. Then she told me she had a crush on me. Then we decided to skype call and we ended up literally talking for 8 straight hours. It was kind of amazing. I felt really nervous, but it also felt easy. We just worked. She also didn't care that I had dropped out of college and was working at a fast food place. As sappy and cringey as it sounds she believed in me. She sees something in me that I don't. And according to her I make her happy so I've got that going for me as well. 9 Months after we first talked she got on a plane and came to America and things went great. A couple months after that I went to Belgium and we each visited each other this year as well. We skype nearly every day and we both plan on me moving there once she graduates. So that's that. I basically just got really lucky. Really, really lucky.

If I ever decide to read a new manga again I'll read Ajin. I can't promise that it'll happen, but here I am replying to you within a reasonable amount of time so you never know.

I started reading Happiness only because it was on the same site (Mangastream) I read Shingeki. They don't add a ton of new series there so when I saw it get added I clicked on it and loved the sketchy art. And I have to agree the sex plus family murder was unexpected. It kind of feels like the mangaka is making it up as he goes along so anything seems possible. Might as well read it until the mangaka runs out of ideas it inevitably crashes and burns. 30-40 pages once a month isn't much of a time investment anyways as specially considering half the pages don't even have text.

PS: Sorry about your dog, really. My dog died a few years ago. Shit sucks.

Just came by to say how wonderful your review about Tsumi to batsu is (although you haven't finished the manga, lol)
Your manga list tags are also very amusing.
Cheers!
Ekvilibro Oct 23, 2016 10:38 PM
No problem, man.

I'm around the site since 2007 + I'm quite a heavy MAL user. I found your page maybe years ago, through the forums or seeing your comment on another person's page.
I enjoy visiting various MAL profile pages when I browse MAL a lot.,so I've seen you around the site when you were more active.

I actually wanted to send the friend request a long time ago since your profile is interesting. Well, better late than never :)

Haha, yup, tastes vary in this site a lot. I don't mind adding or accepting a FR from someone with an anime I dislike on their favorites, like Sword Art Online for example.

So it was you! Now that's a sin!
If I overthink it, technically, it could be his only account, and he could just not be ineterested in MAL community, keeping his full lists and presence elsewhere. But an alt is more likely, of course. Guess, he sits somewhere on forums laughing ominously.

That's something like hostile attention. I didn't like the manga so much, that I want to know how bad it is exactly to bash it accordingly. And it's not hard to flip through a chapter for a goal this noble. It's the same as with Tokyo Ghoul:re. Though I think about moving it to the dropped after all, because I just can't despise it any stronger and I have enough material for trolling to last a lifetime.
And yeah - hello again! It's nice to read you.
Tumerking Oct 7, 2016 8:15 PM
I was literally googling around for a torrent when I decided to check if you replied. Happened to show up literally half an hour after you left me a link for a torrent.

Anyways just responding to your quickie with a quickie of my own. Off to watch the movie. Cheers.
