I tested slightly positive for Covid yesterday. I guess that is what I caught last week. I am going to have to be in isolation for now. Dec 14, 2022

        It would explain why I barely have been able to taste anything this last week.

      I had a fever for a couple of days at the start of this week. I dislike how that can interrupt one's plans and routine.

        Plenty, many examples - music is like an emotional short-cut, and can be used very cleverly, especially by associating certain themes with certain characters, places or events

        Hi Gizmo. Hmm, my pyjama shirt seems stretchable but I am not sure.
        Sometimes I do wonder if it comes from me having hit myself against the head on purpose in the past.

        Hi guys, thanks for the responses. Sorry I am a little late with a response of my own.
        I still have to find a day to celebrate my birthday. I think I would like to go stargazing at an observatory when it is possible.

        Heh, have an AI help me finish the stories? ;)
        I should probably focus more on original ideas such as Ashes and that anthro stuff I would like to make, but I would really like to have made one Fallout thing to fulfill that dream. Be it a full game or a cool source book.

        What I mean is Ashes is fine you do not need much coding all you need is dialog that works. Would not worry about stats and all that shit. Also I could help you finish the stories I have no problem with writing if I have an assignment. You just gotta know what you want really.

        That is a really good question and I will have to get back to you on that when I finally have an answer.
        I have hoped to develop drawing skills myself so I could illustrate my comic ideas as I can not afford an artist to do comic pages.

        I have had a lot of experience with mental illness so I like to help if I can plus DG is a good friend. That being said I would probably say the same to anybody that just said that because I understand the feeling and eventually got over it.

      I have had a temper problem with gaming when it becomes hard. But recently I was genuinely angry because of difficulty or puzzles.

        @The Dutch Ghost Well...i mean gaming burnout is popular term about when you being gamer for like 5 years and so but gaming become rather stale. Then you just being totally not impressed with anything, like almost to the point of chore. Just google it, lots of people already making statement about it and the solution apparently.

        Maybe Toront. I actually could still pull off BCR2 as I wrote in the gaming thread, and I managed to pull of Dread after a while so they aren't completely gone.
        But it is not what it used to be. I am for example average to terrible now at Sonic games

        @eissa, I have yet to look up what gaming burnout is, but I had a quick glimpse and I definitely recognized a symptom; sitting behind a game but not enjoying and feeling that you should be doing something else instead.
        Will get back to you once I have read some more about it.

      Fun detail I found out about one of my cats; she likes to play fetch with a toy mice.

        Anyone who says cats are inactive or not social or any such have never truly interacted with a cat. I could teach my cat nifty tricks by demonstrating them to her *once* - but ONLY if she had a pre-existing interest in the subject. Cats will soak up information *like that*

        Some cats like playing like that. My cat plays with live mice and makes them dead due to me training him by throwing those at him. Also the string mouse toys where you dangle it.

        I opened an Ashes thread but I feel that my English was a bit lacking when I wrote it.
        Perhaps I may need to rewrite some parts later.

        Yeah that happens to me all the time. Sometimes I just feel my English is shit. Words don't mean what I think they do, I don't know the grammar, I'm just guessing based on what sounds right.

        Even though most of what I read is in English I will never be good when it comes to writing.

        However I thought your new thread was excellent!

        That is also how I sometimes feel, especially when my head feels overwhelmed with various thoughts and feelings.
        At some point I would just like to scream "Shut up! I need to think on something that is important to me, I don't need confusion right now."

        I would like to become better at English writing, or Dutch for that matter, but I can't afford classes.

        For my part, I saw Oblivion in theaters. Hated it, bored out of my mind. It took Edge of Tomorrow to redeem Cruise in my eyes

        I would not say that Oblivion is brilliant, but I liked a couple of ideas.
        Main issue IMO was that it was so damn slow sometimes.

        It's not foolish to hope for the future because it takes that mindset to make good things happen. Be realistic and set small goals for yourself. Take care of yourself and take a shower every day it helps.
