      @Zachary I'm very glad to hear it! ^_^ And I'm keeping well too thanks, feeling a little too lazy though ^^;

  17. Thinking I should catch up on a YouTuber or two~ Do you get no option like this? If so, try looking into your settings, you might have disabled them without realizing. I believe I've done the same before. If you're considering it because the community as a whole makes you unhappy or being around is of some detriment to you, a break could be nice? But if it's only because of a few bothersome people that can just be added to your ignore list, or because you think it's what others want, then it's not really worth even thinking about IMO

    A Necessary Decision

    That's fair enough; best of luck directing your life onto the path you seek, it sounds like you understand what needs to be done, so I'm sure you'll be fine now distractions like this place are out of the way
  19. With how much attention is directed towards times when it seems the world is 'going downhill' or towards issues it's experiencing, sometimes it can be easy to lose sight of the many ways the world has improved through time, either through some issues being removed/lessened or new helpful things being created. What I'm curious about is, what kind of changes in your lifetime, or even changes from further back than that, are you very thankful have come about? Me personally, the internet is probably one of the biggest things I'm immensely grateful exists nowadays; not only does it offer so much entertainment (so much so that I question how people got by without it in the past), it's also allowed me to interact with many lovely people, certainly more easily than I would be able to in person. I'm also very thankful we're at a point where we understand diseases and can oppose them so much better than in the past... reading about some of the horrible conditions that people had no answer to back then scares me, and while there are definitely conditions that we have much to learn about even today, I'd feel much safer with them now than if I had any even 100 years ago.
  20. As someone who likes to see both sides of every argument and learn each side's valid points and flaws, it's kinda demoralizing to me when I see people either aggressively label an understandable opinion and those who hold it as 'brainless' all in all, or who see their side as the only option and beyond criticism when there are actually many respectable reasons one may challenge or reject them. Obviously with some issues in the world, there will be sides that really don't hold up whatsoever even under a fair examination, but lately, it feels like a 'black and white' perspective is somewhat popular in places it really shouldn't be, and that really isn't of much benefit to anybody if we're to learn and improve. So, I thought it might be nice to have a topic steering away from the kind of aggressive 'discussion' black and white perspectives can sometimes cause, where we can instead talk about sides we aren't aligned with but still respect or understand (or even just respect for a few points it makes), be it political sides or even just sides in far smaller concerns like fandoms, console wars and such; as long as it's respect for people who share different opinions than yours, it's welcome in this topic. In my case, I guess I can think of two things for the time being: ~While I'm a vegetarian (previously a vegan), I have absolutely nothing against people who decide not to go with that kind of lifestyle; not only because it can be a hard change to make long-term, but it's also a lifestyle that has done more harm than good for some people who've tried it, so it's definitely not something I think people should feel forced to do. ~While I'm an atheist that left Christianity, I still get and respect why Christians (and followers of other religions too, but I'll focus on Christianity since I've had much more of an experience with it) see an omnipotent being in the universe's creation and in the way nature works- heck, sometimes I feel I sorta see it myself-; and despite having strong objections with certain stuff in the Bible as well as the way some followers use it to attack homosexuals and such, I don't hope for the religion to die out or think lowly of the many, many good people who follow it either. I feel like I have improved as a person after turning atheist, but I think Christianity can be a very good thing, and I'm glad it has helped a lot of people. How about with you guys? What sides/beliefs etc. do you have some respect for despite not aligning with them?
  21. Thinking I should really play Monster Hunter again sometime, and perhaps try be a bit more risky in it too. Status updates could be an idea perhaps? You get to meet and interact with a lot of the community through them, and they're pretty laid-back on the whole Oh geez, I'm so sorry for you and your family's loss... I teared up a few days ago just from imagining having to say farewell to a dying pup, so for your family to have to really experience that, I can't honestly even guess how rough it must be. While I haven't had a pet in years, I think the best you can do for yourself is (if you haven't gotten to already) take as much time as you need to cry it out and let surface any feelings and thoughts, perhaps even memories, you're holding within you (putting them into words to post or even just for you to see could be an option if you prefer, Reddit has some very supportive pet loss areas if you do decide to tell others about your dog). I'm guessing your family has at least one other dog, so if it doesn't make you feel any worse, playing and spending more time with them through this could also be good; not because they should replace the dog you lost obviously, but because they can feel the loss too, from what I understand... perhaps the two (/or more) of you can give each other good company through this and help cheer each other up. Best of luck coping with this however you decide to do it; take good care of yourself, whatever you do.
  22. If I didn't read the title, you could almost convince me this is an actual cupcake! I like the rainbow-colored heart on top, it's a very nice touch
  23. I know this is an out of the blue request, and likely not many people will see it, but... if any of you are going through a rough time, or if you've got a rough time ahead in your future, do all you can to fight for victory through the harshness of it, okay? I know many problems in life are incredibly difficult to overcome, or can make you feel totally powerless against them, or maybe they're even incurable and life long; it's hard to keep up the fight against problems like them, and I get there's not always a guaranteed happy ending after the journey. I don't think it's weak-willed of someone to give up, and it's nothing to be ashamed about. But, while there are many potential problems on different scales in life, there will always also be people out there that would love to help, that might have another approach to your problems that you may never have thought about which can at the very least make things more bearable, and has for them.

    The modern world is pretty great about finding approaches to these sort of things. We've got forums and websites where people going through struggles in life similar to yours get together, share their advice with each other and can understand what you're dealing with. Heck, even on this forum, there's a lot of advice to be found and to ask for if you feel comfortable doing so here. Researching more about what you're dealing with is pretty easy with the internet, and every day or so, more information (some which could possibly even help) is learnt and added. Professionals can even do the research for you if you have a doctor/GP or such that you trust. Friends, irl or online can even just listen to you if information provides nothing, and support you through what you're going through, even just by trying to keep your mind off it. This paragraph just doesn't even begin to cover how many places there are to look to nowadays.

    I get that with some things in life, all the advice in the world, all the fun distractions, may not really resolve the whole problem... but, for while you have the gift of life, for while you live in a world where there's always more to learn and more ways building up for fighting back against many problems, do what you can to give your problems as hard a time as possible, okay? Take care of yourselves to the best of your ability, even with how slow progress may feel at times... the time you have on this earth is precious, and no pesky problems should be allowed to ruin this time for you. :)

  24. Feeling sorta shaky, might have a bit too much caffeine in my system. As in you feel unacknowledged, or is it more of a trippy feeling? I believe in your existence if that means anything, and if it turns out you don't exist, well, then you'd be the most charming non-existing person I've met What are you feeling sick with, may I ask? I hope it'll ease off soon enough whatever it is, make sure to get all the lovely rest and 'me-time' you can through this (and beyond)!
  25. The fact that you're even willing to draw all 802 is incredibly impressive in itself, wish I had that kinda determination I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for when/if you begin this massive undertaking; you've certainly done a lovely job with this cute Bulbasaur at least, looking forward to seeing your next paintings!
