Oh also health things update, my gallbladder isn’t trying to kill me. So that’s good. Still don’t know why eating food is so horrible though.
So my birthday’s coming up, right. My parents always spend like $100 on each of us kids for our birthdays. It used to buy a lot more.
ANYWAY so I’m all sads because AC: New Leaf. I don’t even have a 3ds. And then SMASH BROS for the 3DS. THAT’S WHACK YO. What a better use of my birthday money than another video game platform?
Unfortunately 3ds’s are a little out of my dad’s price range. So he cranked about it. Besides the fact that I don’t need more video games, they’re bad for you, blah blah blah. So I gave up that.
And then I discovered that my computer (which is a MacBook) can actually run Starcraft II rather well if I turn the graphics settings down to just above absolute crap. That was exciting. But of course the game is like $40 now (better than it used to be but still). For $20 more I can get the expansion too.
So I asked my dad. And he was like, sure.
So let me just recap that for you. He’ll buy me a violent, bloody video game for my computer, that keeps me hold up in the dingy dark basement for hours on end, but he won’t buy me a mobile platform, that i can use anywhere at any time and therefore won’t (theoretically) result in becoming a cave dweller like the other one, on which I’d play a game where you’re the mayor of a town and you make all the little cute animal people happy.
The next time you feel down, just remember that Bruce Banner tried to kill himself and Tony Stark has anxiety attacks, and they’ve both saved the world. You will be okay.
This legitimately makes me feel better
Maybe I’m just cynical, but this doesn’t make me feel better at all; they’re fictional characters, they were written that way.
Okay, how about this? My mom, who’s 57 and very capable (meaning not some crippled little old lady), asked me to go with her to the clinic today for her prescription renewal. Something she’s done a thousand times. But she was like nervous? Or scared? And wanted me to come.
This is normally something that plays out the other way, me being anxious and her comforting me (like mom’s do). But she’s always so rock solid in dealing with crazy shit that her needing me for something as simple as driving across town was…. weird. Not concerning, just weird. Cause hey, that’s being human.
Going to see the doctor today to hopefully find out why eating food has been such an unpleasant experience lately.
sometimes I forget that rulers work with tablets and I get really frustrated with my inability to freehand straight lines
YOU COULD DO THIS
BUT IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE
oh my god
you could just draw a dot, hold down shift, and draw another dot
for the two endpoints of a straight line
WHERE HAS THIS INFORMATION BEEN HIDING ALL THIS TIME????
But dot-shift-dot doesn’t allow the line weight to vary along the straight line.
