  1. It's been forever since we last chatted.

    How's life treating ya, Kyo?

    1. Kyoshi

      Life hasn't been great. Mental troubles such as no confidence, a growing nihilistic outlook on life and constant anxiety all feel as though they are draining my will to live. Slowly but surely. Even so, I am still trying my best to at least enjoy things even if I have a doomed future. Mostly been gaming, reading up on different subjects, chatting with my boyfriend, trying to enjoy any and all nice weather. The basic simple joys I always come back to. Not exciting in the least for anyone else to hear about but my life is as basic as it gets. I just wish it was that way for my mental state. 

  2. Yeah, I remember the Beetlejuice cartoon from when I was a kid. Don't remember any of the specifics tho
  3. I live way out in the country. Closest McDonald's is like 30 something miles away. There isn't a single traffic light in this county either. The two little towns just have 4-way stop signs.
  4. I use my TV as a computer monitor I don't really watch much TV these days, but I still keep an antenna connected so I can receive local weather and news. (I like the format of local news channels). Internet would be tough to go without. I love youtube a bit too much, plus I enjoy chatting with my online friends.
  5. One. Secretary at my work had it but thankfully she quickly recovered.
  6. Not much. Ate breakfast this morning. Have to mow the grass at some point today
  7. A bit better now. Had a pounding headache and light sensitivity earlier this morning. Not gonna go into the reason why.
  8. There's also a 9 axis political quiz. Has a short and long version. I definitely recommend the long version after taking both. https://9axes.github.io/
  9. Kinda miss the days when I use to be really active on here

      You're busy stargazing with Twilight Sparkle. It's understandable that you would be preoccupied. :adorkable:

      Never too late to be active. Also, I miss the Sonic CD stuff, like way too much! :kindness::please:

      @Sparklefan1234, I wish. Life's been crazy this year. Also lost my granddad a couple months ago and have been thinking about him lately.

      @Splashee®, Heh, I know.  ;)

  10. Jupiter and Saturn. 

    Calm conditions tonight. Lower humidity too, cuz I didn't have to use the hairdryer on my telescope. lol

      Good, they are still there!

       

      I do see them in the sky, but they are just dots, even zoomed in with my camera, Saturn is a fancy blurry glowy disc

      I can just make out Saturn's rings with 10x50 binoculars. Gotta hold em steady tho.

      Those images above are at about 480X magnification. Without a tracking mount, a planet or star would quickly exit the field of view.

      Why is Earth rotating? :Cozy:

      Yea, hand are shaking too much and too dark to photo without bringing up iso to high, making terrible quality (for me)

      I am the cheapest tracking mount :wacko:

  11. Mars video and images from this morning. Enjoy!

    *yawns. I'm going back to bed. :orly:

      Very nice stuff!!!

  12. Besides the Gulf of Mexico, the closest class 1 sky for me would be Big Bend National Park in Texas. I'd like to go there once I settle in at my new place. Much brighter than that and the Milky Way will fade into the skyglow.
