There was me, that is Yuki, and my three droogs, that is Mii-kun, Rii-san, and Kurumi-chan, and we sat in the Megurigaoka High School trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening. The Megurigaoka High School stored milk-plus, milk plus vellocet or synthemesc or drencrom, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violence.
You either die a hero...
...or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain!
I'm a nice person (if you are nice to me). If you wanna say something, go for it. :)

Anyway, so, another major life update, after multiple failures I have a new committed girlfriend now and recently moved in with her! I'm at home by myself right now because she's out of state for an anime convention that she promised to be part of a cosplay skit with a friend before we had started dating. It's been nice being with someone again, though I am still kinda settling in. Unfortunately I moved into her current place which is kinda small for the both of us and all of our stuff, so I left most of my anime, manga, and video game stuff at my mom's place, prioritized getting nearly all of my board games moved over here since those are more useful socially and can't be as easily replaced digitally like the other stuff. We were actually looking at buying a different house together, but the market really sucks right now and we couldn't get a place we like within our price range. Hopefully we'll be able to move into a good place together in 1-2 years or so. This place is working well enough for us right now though.
Other than that, not too much going on. I haven't been watching a whole lot of anime lately, but I did go see Suzume in theaters about a month ago and liked it a lot, being the Shinkai fanboy that I am. I feel like he really did a GOOD Miyazaki inspired fantasy story this time around, as apposed to the utter disaster that was Children Who Chase Lost Voices, you know, in my opinion and such, though generally I'm not really all that hard to please, although being the slight "Miyazaki hater" that I am, doing a bad ripoff of his style was one of the most offensive things I can imagine an anime creator doing. I also watched a number of Fall 2022 shows, most of which I still need to finish. I should probably work on finishing those today to be honest, but hard to keep my brain on track and I really want to cut our grass. After I finish those up though and my girlfriend gets back, we'll hopefully pick out some new stuff to watch together. I need to finish showing her Haruhi, which she has enjoyed so far and I found it funny that she actually voluntarily sat through ALL of Endless Eight with me even though I told her multiple times that it'd be fine if we skipped to the final rendition. She said she didn't mind; guess her ADHD (or her ADHD medication?) might have worked well for that?
Anyway, gonna cut this short as the battery is charged. Just wanted to say thanks, let you know I'm still alive, and touch base to hopefully chat more often! Maybe I'll write a longer comment some other time, or do so after you respond next. Anyway, hope all is well with you! Have a great one! ^_^
Happy New Year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023!! 🎉🎉
