こんにちわ sushi rolls, can I name post for a bit?

I've been meaning to do a language thread, but I thought it would be more interesting if it includes comfy-posting about different parts of the world.
Feel free to share the -best- resources to learn your language or others that you may be aware of!

I know its hard to not get political but please try to keep it civil, or at most do some friendly banter.

I'm from a country that used to belong to the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata, my main language is Español, and some tidbits of guaraní/portuguese.

However I'm interested in japanese[0] and russian, and of course, I would like to improve my english.

Have fun.

My gf has made the first steps towards learning some Irish. I never thought the day would come when someone would ask me to explain IPA to them, but it has.


French sushi learning Japanese here. I have a bunch of techniques for learning languages but lately i have been working on a command line tool to do spaced repetitions. Just like Anki but in the CLI.

So far it works.

I plan on learning German someday since I already got the basics.


Just a driveby tip for german, I found this really neat german/english focused word lookup tool a while back, been really useful:


Oh thank you for this.

While we re at it: people learning English might benefit from the Writefull app, and for pretty much everything you can use Linguee.com (French, English, German… in a bidirectional way).

I am letting you discover both tools features.

My hobby is learning and making invented languages. I've been following the progress of Panunia, Globasa, and Lidepla for some time now. I'd also like to get in touch with the Volapük community before they all die of old age.

Toki Pona may be of some interest to the people here.

Don't know if this kind of topic belongs here. But does anyone else feel utterly repulsed by social media and the climate of virtual interactions especially on platforms where sushi rollymity is an option. Though whether or not sushi rollymous is turned on doesn't make much of a difference in the poor quality content produced. It's an endless repetition of temporary pointless trends and people bandwagoning another's point of view instead of establishing their own. I'm dead tired of the fanatic obsession focused on sex and politics over and over. I don't fucking care. I feel immobilized and unable to interact with most people my age, I don't see the purpose anymore of trying to be social especially in this unfiltered cesspool of vapid thoughts. I gave up on imageboards, lasted a streak reaching a full year. Came back occasionally to small boards to see what's up but I can see the toxicity slowly leaking in.

This is funny and sad how some people willfully share their ids and pictures and whatever private information someone on the web asked for. Whai. I ditched twitter when it asked me for my phone number, the hell I'd upload my id somewhere.


I've lost track of all the accounts that I can't recover because they demand a phone number.


Things like this will generally let you access your account again if you bother the support email about it and reply back to automated responses.


Meanwhile I give google 2 numbers and instead of using them to send me a confirmation code, they ask for them both and still want to know when I created the account. Hell if I know. I've been waiting a week for someone to personally review my request for recovery.


Odd question: would it be possible to make an sushi rollymous version of VRChat? I am already aware of the in-browser 3-D chan and Janus sites.

Do any sushis watch this or know someone who does?

What do they think of it? What do you think of it?

I found it really boring and uninspired

Who cares? There's more important things to care about than public opinion of a tv show


I liked it too, i'm not a big star wars fan but for me it was just a nice thing to watch at night. For some reason I found it relaxing, the characters walking in the desert, the cantinas, the "western" ambient. It's the opposite of the new movies, with all that action and lights in every moment.


I don't care about this specific instance, it just reminded me that's how I feel about everything


Well, I really feel like the whole Star Wars IP has been dragged through the dirt. Not that I really care, I think it goes to show how creatively bankrupt Disney is. And yet people love this shit. Baby + Yoda = new Minion. What's next?


I watched the first episode and it was eh. I liked the idea of watching the Mandalorian doing random adventures, but I don't know if I'll like it with a bay Yoda floating around. This critique might sound weird, but I hated how '20 year old white dude' the Mandalorian sounded. He didn't sound like a super cool space killer, but he sounded more like the barista who says hi to me at startbucks. I would like the Mand's character if he actually had a good voice. Baby yoda isn't that cute to me because i don't find try hard cute
I knew a guy who rewatched the show 3 times during his vacation with is wife and daughter in vegas. The same dude makes his anniversary with his wife watching star wars movies. At this point the only people I know who watch star wars are either obsessive fanboys or people who just want to get the memes

It is just sad that there is no hope for snow this Christmas. It does not really feel so special without it. Surprisingly, a lot of people I talked to said that they prefer it that way - what is your opinion, sushi? Or maybe you live in a land of permanent snow or endless deserts, so that problem does not concert you at all?


I grew up in the northeast US with the piles of snow it gets every year. Live in the Bay Area now with no snow. I fly back to visit for the holidays which involves some exposure to snow and the cold…and I enjoy it for that week but I'm ready to come back to milder temperatures by the end of it. I also don't miss dealing with work commutes in that kind of weather. But yeah, you could say that I have a much harder time getting into a Christmas-y mood when it's 55 and sunny in December.


I like the cold winters we sometimes get, with lots of snow. Love how muffled the noise of the city gets, and the creaking when walking. In later years, winters have been very mild, with sidewalks covered in salty wet sleet or water. Last year when it was dry, the sidewalks were white not from snow, but from all the road salt my city use.

I want to move to a different city, somewhere more inland that sees more snow, and uses grit instead of salt.


I've never seen or touched snow in my life (aside from pictures and movies), but I'm still praying it's somewhat cold on christmas, because having a sunny day that day sucks for the mood.


The sign of Christmas here is empty streets, with people going on holidays somewhere else (family lives close so we don't really go anywhere).

I have never seen snow.


I haven't really been paying attention to forecasts, but if the weather doesn't change soon in the Philly area it looks like it's gonna be a wet Christmas.

I actually really like this type of weather, but I'd prefer to have it in November or March. The fact that it's warm enough to rain in mid-December is scary.

Do you enjoy your job? And if you don't explain to me why.

Hahaha, I remember a guy that did that shit. He would just randomly fall asleep during the day, a narcoleptic or something.

Yea, I know what you're talking about though. You have it so good, but you feel that quiet desperation, some sort of first world problem.

For me, it's that build up of working really hard to get to your goal, sacrificing everything, yet finding out that, whichever way you spin it, it doesn't seem worth it.

You still have to show up to work on time.
You still have to put in those 8 to 10 hours each day.
You still have to work weekends on occasion.
You still catch flack if the boss can't see you in your cube.

In a since, it's like upgraded childhood, something that you hoped you might eventually escape through enough hard work. Yet, here you are grinding away on your next ticket and hoping to spend your free time kicking the shit with your old friends.

You love spending time with your friends.

Wow, sushi, are you me?

I went through an uncannily similar line of thought when I got out of my first IT job doing tickets. Worked for a few weeks somewhere much worse, then switched to cybersec. Quit after a few months because it was indistinguishable from selling snake oil at a colossal scale. Felt like a downward spiral. Went back to uni to get my masters, which is where I am now. I can't muster the willpower to code anymore, and I'm still considered a "junior" in the industry.

Will probably get the paper and move to some other town. Don't know exactly how to approach a long term plan from here, and that's infuriating.


I also work as a software dev, for maybe half a year, and I dislike it.
The programs are uninteresting. People also dont understand how much faster programs could be, but that is a completely different topic.
I dont care about teaching people, its tedious, and they wont listen and even if they were to learn they wouldnt use the knowledge anyway.
So I just pretend to listen to them, shit out whatever code that has an "acceptable" level, and just try to pass the time the rest of the time.
Work conditions are alright though. I can leave early and from home sometimes.
But honestly I would rather do something creative and/or with my hands.
Building something out of wood could surely be more fun, but who knows.



I wonder if anyone does. If they do, their situation and goals are almost guaranteed to be so much different than yours that advice doesn't apply.

Being creative in directing your life is hard work in itself, huh?


I don't, it lacks meaning.

When I tried to escape finance I ended up in digital advertising of all places, hilarious stuff that somehow made me grow as a person. But my principles forced me back to square one and a goal for next year is to switch jobs once again. (As time passes it gets more scary to do so and fall upwards)

I've got unlimited motivation and passion inside of me, I just feel like it's been permanently held inside of me, meaning all my motivation creates is scenarios in my head where I went through with the action. I have a lot planned but my god I can't get out of the rut that is procrastination


I used to wake up a couple of minutes before my alarm. When I then dozed off again I dreamed about getting up and starting my day. Once my alarm actually signaled me it's time to get out of bed, I had to go through all of that again, even though I thought I already had that behind me.

This taught me how to start doing things.


I channel that all into writing. Then, the next day, I act on my vision, having already clarified it in writing.

First comes a vague feeling.
Second comes the refinement of that feeling into a plan.
Third comes the action, bringing that plan into reality.

Sometimes I get stuck on acting. When that happens, I go back to refinement. If I get stuck on refinement, I revisit the original vague feeling.

The feeling is the why.
The plan is the how.
The action is the what.

If you feel very motivated, but you haven't decided on the direction, throw something at the wall. Keep throwing random ideas at the wall until you find one that lets you get to the next step.

I like to think of it like navigating a maze in the dark. You can only move forward until you hit a wall. Once you hit that wall, you can go back to where you started, or you can move along the wall, hoping that there will be another path that leads you where you want to go.

Most of this board is about the pleasure to be found in the everyday, so I thought we could have something a little different; whats the most exciting thing you've done recently?
I went gliding today with an instructor and did some acrobatics. Shit was cash.

Last time I did anything "exciting" was when I went to the local amusement park with my girlfriend during the Halloween promotion. We went on a ride where you sit down and they get you really high up and it spins around. I have a phobia of heights so I couldn't breathe.

The last time I hung out with what little friends I have (which isn't too often), I gave them surprise gifts.

It's probably not very exciting for other people, but I've almost finished preparing my garden!
A few months back I cleaned out my family's decrepit old greenhouse and filled it with plants. Now that it's all verdant I don't really have the space in it to grow what I want to. So I dug out an old tiller and am trying to learn how to make an in ground garden.
It's been hard, I'm physically weak so controlling the tiller was rough. And then trying to rake out all the grass, rocks, and small bits of trash that got lost in the dirt has been a multi-day project. But my first section of daikon has sprouted, my tomatoes in the greenhouse are thriving, and I even made the time to set up a table and chairs out there under a tree so I can rest. Planning to put decorative plants around it, hopefully they'll attract bees.


The most exciting things that happened to me are rather bad, like I almost wrecked my car twice in the past weeks. The first time I dodged another car and barely made it out of the rain grove before hitting the next tree. The second time a bunch of deers crossed my trajectory, so I had to perform emergency braking, but hit one of them anyway.


i got into a car crash a month ago. nobody got hurt, but still, not fun times. winter is tough, stay safe out there, sushi.

is compassion contrasted by strength?
I'm too soft and that makes me feel weak

that's probably an oversimplification, but i get where you're coming from. i find it difficult to balance, personally; not wanting to be vulnerable but still wanting to be sensitive to others


I think that compassion and strength go together quite well.


The idea that these two are contrasting is your weakness.


File: 1575262377139.png (651.37 KB, 697x713, 1445952049321.png)

sushi roll your compassion is your strength! Don't let people make you think your kind heart is a weakness! You're not weak sushi roll, you've probably endured a lot in your life. There are people out there who will exploit your kind heart, but don't fret, you will find somebody who can appreciate you for who you are!


its like a penis. When you're gentle with it, it gets harder


ASMR is the best for falling asleep.
ASMR is the best for feeling better.
ASMR is the best for living life to the FULLEST.

What is your favorite ASMR, rolls?
