You know, Brits, from a strictly functional standpoint, I like your pronunciation better than Americans'. The difference between "can" and "can't" is actually discernible, you acknowledge the existence of t's in words like "water", "penthouse" and stuff...

But damn, I can never bring myself to do it. I sound so posh whenever I try it over american pronunciation, on top of having to fight my own accent.

It seems our feminism-orientated professor is about to forbid my friend and me from writing a paper about the human rights problems in restraining orders because we want to focus more on the rights of the restrained than the rights of the one who is seeking the restraining order...

In our view, this point is very valid on the victim's point of view as well, not to even mention the society, but our prof seems to think we are a despise to the entire womanhood because we dare to even think about anyone else than the victim. They seem to think we don't take domestic violence seriously... and that makes me even more annoyed, considering my own past.

*sigh* Guess what? This makes me want to write about this EVEN MORE. I'm gonna fight it all the way to the fcking dean of the faculty if needed.

I feel Sonic Boom would've been more interesting as a Silver-centered spinoff. It would've helped with the branding issues. Silver is a character set 200 years after Sonic's time. Its easier to keep seperate from the main title. Silver is a time traveller so its not impossible to do a crossover if you wanted. Plus Silver could be tweaked more easily to fit the Jak and Daxter style vibe the game was going.

Silver's gameplay style in 06 was based of Rogue and Knuckles from Adventure 2. There was a focus on exploration, puzzles, treasure solving and combat. Which is what you do in Jak and daxter in a broad sense.

Ps. This would've been a cool unlockable skin.

Shadow's problem is similar to Tails. They are both stuck in roles they outgrew along time ago. Shadow outgrew the "arrogant rival" role by the time of 06. It would've been better if you just used someone else in that- like Jet from Riders.

I think Shadow just needs a new arc or challenge. 06 ended his "arc" from Heroes. He decided who he was and went full circle as a character.

Another good rival would be Fang and Team Hooligan. He's a sniper and a mercenary. And that would play well against Shadow being a GUN agent.

You could even have him becoming Infinite in a Shadow-centered version of Forces. Because Forces could've been a better showcase for Shadow as a character. Having him struggle with replacing Sonic as the Big Good of the Sonic world would be an ideal challenge for him as a character.

Shadow is defined by his trauma back on Ark. Having him try to pay it forward by consoling a traumatized Cream or Tails would've been great.

Plus having the GUN Commander give Amy tips on being a leader would've been nice.

For some unexplained reason, work decided to send me two work phones in the mail. I thought about keeping the extra just so I could pretend to answer multiple phones at my desk like I'm a stock trader, but the smart voice in my head prevailed and I turned it in.

Apparently I can order big speakers through the company store despite not having any good reason why we would ever need these. I wonder if I can hide a bunch in the construction area of the building that's being built and make everyone think it's haunted. Our facility is right next to an Native American burial mound so it would work perfectly too

I wonder if the ticket request page accepts aliases

@V's patron You thought right. <3 Like don't get me wrong; his arrogant, "tsundere" personality was what drew me in upon his inception into the franchise. But I didn't want him to get stuck in that role either, not after the way things went down at the end of SA2. I admittedly remember little about Sonic Heroes and pretty much haven't paid honest attention since. But yeah, I'd have loved if they'd explored his character a little more thoroughly. ^^

Thanks. Heroes gave him amnesia and the mystery of who he was led to his spinoff game Shadow the Hedgehog. Which unnecessarily retconned his origins but it is what is. 06 finished that arc with this scene which made me hyped back in high school.

Update: it was about my own, hasty conclusion. :LOL: For us, it really seemed like she was gonna forbid it, but we talked about it with the prof and our topic is good.

It's not an easy one though, dealing with restraining orders and all the aspects related to them. We have a lot of empirical studies as a background for our paper. The people who are ordered to stay away from their parents, spouse, children etc, are at least violent, but usually they seem to share some narcissistic traits, and the more I read these, the more I am like "This sounds like my mother", sometimes even "wow, covert narcissistic traits straight from the head of a former friend". But while it's rough for me, it's great to see that it doesn't bother me too much. I think it's a strength for me in this, knowing all the tricks, all the ways of abuse and violence and gaslighting, knowing pathological liars, smear campaigns, groups of flying monkeys etc. At least I know what am I talking about, thanks to the ones who gave me hell but failed to keep me in there ;)

What would happen if Jesse died in Breaking Bad season 1? Would Walter team up with Nacho instead?

I'm still hoping the rumored KH anime is a spinoff with new characters and a story. Similar to Star Wars Rebels or Vigilantes the MHA spinoff. It can be in the same universe but a different corner.

I had a new protagonist travel with a Disney character. Something like this kid-

Pairing him/her with Max Goof and Friends is an interesting hook. Other options include Oswald the Rabbit, Donald's friends the other two Caballeros, Horace and Clarice, an older Huey, Duey, Louie etc.

You can have Lady Tremaine and the Evil Queen pop up as the main Disney villians. They both wanna be the next Maleficent but disagree on who should be it. Having them fighting each other as much as they fight the main characters could be fun.

Kinda like when The Joker fought The Riddler in the recent Batman comics.

There are probably gonna be an oc antagonists like the Organization. There are alot of cool ocs on DeviantArt. I'd be down for a new Organization with different goals than the Xehanorts.



Etc.....

Suddenly thinking awful lot about vengeance and different ways that would surely be the final blow for some acts of personal injustice. I'm disappointed in myself, it's been soon a year without any response to different kinds of stuff, half a year without even an active thought about that, and never ever have I done anything out of vengeance, so...

But I'm not worried, I've got ways to cope with it. As a friend said: "Healing from a sick relationship is not linear, it's normal to feel down sometimes. The difference is whether you actually go with the urge, and you've proven to be stronger than that."

It's over by tomorrow, I think. :)

// Felt already good to write it out. Phew.

70% of the way done. With any luck, this proofread will be done by early next week. -fingers crossed-

+One of these days, I'll stop letting Good-Mood-Me make decisions, because Anxious-Me now has to deal with the consequences. ._. (Nothing bad, offered to help someone with something. It's just...inconvenient timing on my part).

Been thinking a lot about ADD lately... I've been suspecting it for about a year, I think, since I learned that forgetting stuff, speaking too fast, not having any memory about what was I saying before a random noise interrupted me, having troubles listening the question in full before answering etc can be symptoms of adult ADD. I didn't seek any help for it, because I've thought I can fight it on my own when I know my challenges, but now that we're having a kid I think I have to get it examined properly in case it's hereditary.

Just that what I've heard, ADD should be observed in reflection to the childhood behaviour as well. What can I say about it? I have major blackouts about my childhood, thanks to CPTSD. I can only remember that even though I did well at school, my "good behaviour grade" was always C or even D and I struggled to have it, whereas other girls got A or B. I didn't seek to cause trouble, I wanted to be good, it just happened for stuff like "dancing around when pupils were supposed to stay on their place" or not having any impulse control at all with my words and ideas. On the other hand, my grades don't support any ADD issues.

So if it's not ADD, I'm fine with that and I'll just keep thinking I have to practice my memory, my rhythm of speech, and impulse control. But if it is a neuropsychological issue, I want it to be diagnosed right so if the kid has any trouble, hereditary chances in problems like this would be considered.

Pfft. I don't even know where to contact with this. "Hi, I've never been suspected to actually have issues like this, but I did a random Internet test about ADD and it says if you get over 70 points you'd have 95 % chance of having ADD, and I got 84. Is this hypochondria?"
