I saw a limited edition milk pitcher selling for peanuts.
It tempts me and my non-existent savings.
Thanks for asking sushi. Today went well. I studied and went to class for uni. I even got invited to join a research lab. Though, there's a lasting melancholy that I can't shake off about the whole "existentialist ordeal." I trust that that stems from my own naivety and that it will dissipate with time.
Tomorrow I am planning on doing the same thing: attending my classes and studying. I hope in the morning maybe I can brew some tea and watch the sunrise, to add a little bit of fun into my life.
Nice. I bought some more ram for my laptop so I can run two or three virtual machines and set up a little lab for pentesting and reversing purpose. Feel free to open a thread or to report your progress on this, Python is not hard to learn but some of its quirks can be confusing and should not be overlooked (on the top of my head, what make a type mutable, inheritance and the super method, and asyncio). Check out Corey Schafer's channel if you need videos resources
Also, photos of your greenhouse OP plz
My greenhouse isn't really in the state for photos. It was left untended for a good few years with family just abandoning plants in it, I've only kept it for about a month now. Still some plants growing on the ground, shabby panels, etc. Only have a handful of plants too, about 6 tomato plants (Only 3 grown enough to flower), as many pumpkins, about 4 watermelons, basil, some desert roses my grandmother gave me the seeds for, and a bunch of half living desert plants my mother won't let me trash.
I'm just glad the things I give a shit about are growing good. I may not have picked the best planting season but the pumpkins are growing wonderfully and since they're edible I'm looking forward to pumpkin pie come January. And the watermelons might actually be grown come summer so that'll be nice.
I really need to plant more produce in it though. Anyone here got good suggestions for a warm climate?
Thanks, sushi roll.
I'm studying only with a book of Python but i think i can see some videos to learn more.
Also, do you think i can learn Python only using the terminal?
I've downloaded the Pycharm and SublimeText to programme but it hasn't worked. Some kind of problem with the interpreter on Pycharm.
It's an idiot question but i never used this kind of IDE, only Bluefish to "programme" in HTML.Also, sorry for my bad english.
You can learn Python with a simple text editor and a terminal. You can install ipython with pip to get a friendlier interpreter, and something like black or autopep8 to make your code cleaner, but everything is doable within a terminal without much hassle>>6131
Pumpkins are easy to grow and difficult to mess up provided that you have enough space and give them plenty of water. I miss having a garden.
I won't tell anyone.
I have some conduit and would like to reorganize the cables on the back of my desk in a less restrictive way this time. But my sisters are in town and one has brought her boyfriend who I don't want to meet, so I'm probably going to flee my home and go for a long drive until they go away.
Why don't you want to meet him sushi roll?
I don't really enjoy meeting new people so I avoid doing it unnecessarily. If I think about it, I'd have no reason to speak to him if he weren't dating my sister and that's a pretty flimsy excuse to have to do so now. But really, they've been in and out for several days and the longer I wait the harder it is to just casually greet the guy.
Nice picture, sushi! I love Waneella's pixel art.
Today wasn't as good as it could have been… I botched two quizzes and the package I ordered arrived today, but my building's office didn't email me to pick it up until 2 minutes before they closed for the day…
Good way to end the week, hopefully your wheel isn't too bad to fix. Wanna share your music?>>6208
Mellow day, I approve.
Pretty quiet here. More greenhouse work, pretty light since I just needed to move some plants around. Two of my tomato plants are fruiting (A bunch of now 4 cherries and 1 beefsteak) which were too big to be on a shelf. Also checked up on the watermelon and I'm experimenting with some pumpkins, three in the greenhouse and 3 outside to see how well they pollinate. And brought honeysuckle in, I really need to grow more pretty plants that aren't just wild ones keeping pots occupied.
Plus some D&D I had to slog through but the campaign finished so I'm looking forward to having my sundays open again.
>>6210>Wanna share your music?
lol no way
Yesterday I finished this goddamned book. Had pretty good day except for the late evening, I went all emotional for some reason. Good I can come to sushigirl in the morning and see that "don't forget to smile" note.
Today I have day off, so I will cook something nice and take a long walk. Later I have an interview for a university's radio, so wish me good luck. :)
Another update, today was trash. I broke my nofap streak, got nearly run over twice and did poorly on my interview. Got ignored when I tried to talk to someone on the street. Also deleted my discord and left my group chat. Meal I cooked was good, but then I binged on sugar and felt even worse. After all that my mom called, while I was on a walk. We talked a bit, but she hanged up after she suggested that I am probably not walking alone.
Someone, kill me please.
Sounds like you need a Noble Eightfold Path. Don't suffer, please
It's been a month since I've posted this. I think the disillusionment of life is catching up to me, but I think it'll be fine, at least it should be fine. Today I'm going to read another book and look for something to smile about. There's no wisdom or higher knowledge in being miserable all the time.
Maybe I'll go for a jog or brew some tea in this cozy, chilly weather.>>6221
I am cheering for you sushi. I hope tomorrow is a better day.
I'm on the very ass end of a cold but it feels like it's still clinging on - coughing and a bit stuffy. If my partner has the energy (they're sick too) we may go for a nice hike.
I just discovered I accidentally ordered a dreamcast controller instead of the actual console and feeling pretty stupid, there goes my plans for the month
My bottom left eye-lid woke up a bit swollen and hurts a bit but it is getting better; i also found a cool site by a mangaka (Reiko Okano), it is specially fascinating because mangaka's sites are usually pretty bad.https://www.ogdoad-najanaja.com/
"Welcome to my website.
This is a website which introduces creative works by a manga artist Reiko Okano.
I hope that you get to sooth and rest your heart by exploring and enjoying this website which is more like a forest filled with creative energy.
Thank you for visiting my website."
I wish you were my friend so I can buy the console and then we'd play.
I'm going to have a good cry, and then start another fresh day tomorrow
Naja is a cobra and the word comes from the sanskrit Naga
My almonds are reaching critical mass.
What does he know? Does Japan have secret esoteric societies? I have long suspected the Naga have some relation to the Egyptian Ogdoad and he started this website in 1999. Desire to know more intensifies. Here's a drawing I made a while ago of Kauket of the Ogdoad, the bird is supposed to be the owl Moloch, I know I suck at drawing
I got a lot of small things done, many of them are small steps toward a larger goal. Even though the incremental results are incomplete, obviously flawed, and need to be refined, I'm glad that I was able to take the first steps.
Perfectionism is a hell of a non-starter.
Today I went out to town and now I'm back home. I'm going to cook today and I'm making dumplings! I just made the dough and gotta let it sit for a couple hours before I'm bound to do the rest, so I want to take the next couple hours to do what I've been meaning to do for the last few days, which is to read some ruby books to start doing a project that want to do.
There's so much filling my days that I barely get to do anything I want to. For one thing I gotta work during the first few hours of the day, so I have about 4 hours tops in the afternoons for myself, which I use mostly for learning chinese because it's my #1 priority right now, but every day I also wish I could catch up on these ruby books so I can get started with my project but I barely get the time to do this. Then I'm taking upon reading fiction which is somewhat related to my project, so in the evening I'm starting to read a lil bit but I'm so tired by then that I fall asleep after a few pages.
So I guess I gotta take it little by little with the little time I have left to do my own stuff, which as I said, even if I can dedicate to my project, I gotta read a few books before I can actually start doing anything with any confidence. I can get started after a few pages with this first book which is supposed to teach me the language (I'm super rusty with any programming whatsoever, plus, I want to do this right rather than doing a bunch of guesswork and having to google how to fetch methods from classes almost every time).
Anyway, at least I have a project in mind, even if it's going to take me a while, at least I have some leisure to proceed…
I'm partial to the Nepal-style momo.
This looks super good. Might make something like this soon
Day off… playing the guitar
Had to leave the house 3 times today
First to shovel snow off the pavement, then to fetch a package from the post office, and then to take out the trash
Each time I had to get in my big boots because the snow is too deep for my regular shoes.
I love winter… when seen through the window from my spot on the couch under a warm blanket
Hey lil guy :)
Remember sushi rolls, if you can take a break, take one. Just be mindful of how LONG your break is. I ended procrastinating a bit during last week. Have some catching up to do!
In that second image, the coffee has clearly already been brewed, and yet the coffee beans and wick look completely unused. This is bugging me to an unreasonable extent.
Am about to study for a while. I just came in as a quick distraction before I did.
I've started a "research" project of sorts (ie. reading a stack of technical books), and I feel kinda pressed when I see them in my reading list. Well, what am I to do….
Updated my webpage.
I've been eating more carbs than frequently as of late. I'm scared of just ballooning back to the weight I had two months ago.
Nice, I liked the page on time management. Keep up the good work in reaching for your goals!
I might make my own page myself, long have I wanted to have a place to express myself much like you do there…
Your site paints you as the sort of person who projects their personal problems onto everyone else. You've got it in your head that anyone who thinks/does/participates in things that you don't like has either been brainwashed by The Man or is The Man. The reality of the situation is that you're a casualty of the natural order; societies serve the majority, and everyone who isn't part of that is going to get burnt.
Thank you for reading. Having forgotten all the injokes, all he could sensibly do was laugh along while wondering if I had gone crazy, then repeat the question. I'm glad you enjoyed it, even though it's my weakest page on the site so far, written late at night wallowing in the kind of self-pity born out of nostalgia for dead videogames.>>11463
Thank you for reading. I suggest you do it. It's fun even if you don't have any readers. I'll do my best.>>11464
Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry you feel this way. I value your feedback but feel you're misinterpreting. Even so, you're probably not the first and definitively won't be the last. I'm torn between finding a compromise that makes the site varied while remaining overall neutral or keep doing what I'm doing hoping it ends the same way. Saying any further would surely end in a string of replies that at the least would move the entire thread to /hell/ so I'll leave it at that.
Shaping up to be an awful week.
i cant focus at all today
my work tasks aren't very difficult, but I just came out of a very intense period of work and now that the pressure's off even the most mundane task takes tremendous effort
i guess this is what they call being burnt out
Take it easy it's no good trying to get anything done like this protip you won't
Get some rest mkay
I'm doing well enough. Family is alive, not homeless or starving or anything like that. My mate is going through a tough time though, issues with his girlfriend that might end with them breaking up. I honestly think it would be better in the long-term for them to break up anyway, I don't know them that well as an actual couple but the spark seems to have died. Going to be tough in the short-term for him, things were tougher for him than I thought and he's apparently let a lot of friendships just fade into limbo. I'm just going to have to make sure I'm there for him.
Apart from that, my anxiety seems to be flaring up a little at the moment, shouldn't have had that coffee earlier this afternoon. Handed in my last assignment for the term. Once I complete my two classes next term I'll be able to get into a Bachelor of IT… at the age of 28.
I hope you're all doing well or the best you can do. We just need to stick at it I guess.
I went to the gym for the first time ever yesterday
I have a long way to go but I hope I can keep it up and reach my goals!
I hung up laundry and stacked dishes on while I was supposed to be working guys, don't tell my boss. With important housework taken care of I got to indulge in some guilty pleasure Chuunibyou at lunchtime.>>6113
I've been running before work for a few weeks now, remember the first time is the hardest, it gets easier from here on out as long as you keep it up!
reply meant for >>11493
One of my chickens had a couple of chicks a couple days ago, and they died this morning. I feel awful ahout it. I was trying to keep them safe but I made a couple of wrong turns and it's my fault they are now dead. They were really cute, too. The chicken is depressed and I feel terrible about it.
I seem to be doing everything wrong.
What went wrong?
I remember raising cickies in kindergarten, I guess the teacher did most of it, but I mean it seemed like it was a straightforward matter of keeping them warm and fed and hydrated.
Well it turns out the mother had already been injured for a while. Yesterday I realized this and she was already being eaten alive by ants and maggots. She was still alive, but barely. I had no heart to sacrifice her, I'm guessing she's dead now. I don't really want to go and see.
Right now I feel there's nothing I could've done, it's just vicissitudes, but I feel bad for the chicken.
That sounds horrible. Keeping pets/animals sounds like a fun time but knowing that I will eventually have to deal with situations like this is really discouraging.
Well, not really, if you are careful. My problem is that I was careless. I saw people around here have their chickens roam free. I though it'd do no harm, but now I keep them in their coop and let them out at certain times.
I guess I was under the impression that, if left alone they'd know how to take care for themselves. If handled properly, they can be nice to have around. This particular chicken was given to me already grown up, she managed to get away from me as I tried to get her in the coop and thereafer never let me catch her. She slept on the top of a tree even if there was a big storm. She hatched the chicks on her own and I let her, that's how she got attacked. The rest of the fowls are doing fine.
Don't be discouraged, instead learn from my experience (sushi knows I did.)
I will now summon my heightened Inner Strength.
I will now reinforce the last of my Inner Strength with True Conviction.

out of the blue I ate a peach and danced to funky music after work while the rain soaked the soil outside
That's some A+ posts lmao
Other than that, Started my (hopefully) last college semester! Let's get this done!
day started off super depressed
might have covid since my girlfriend might have it but we need to wait for tests to show up
it started to pick up around 3pm, i started cleaning up my office space and now it looks a lot nicer and less cluttered
took down some old anime posters from 4 years ago that i didnt want up anymore and put up a nice foggy forest tapestry my girlfriend bought me for christmas. i put it behind my monitors, its pretty calming
My upper right back still hurts 2 days later :/
I have a headache and don't feel physically well overall. Might take some painkillers and try to get some programming done
Just the usual plans for today. The usual of trying to live my life as well as possible.
I used to have the same paranoia, but when you realize that someone with enough power could just falsely accuse you of anything it doesn't really matter how clean you are.
Look at witch trials and such, innocents are sent to the stake all throughout history.
Look at false rape accusations. Cancel culture
Paranoia is good to have, I have the same paranoia, it's why I use pseudonyms and such.
But you must face the fact that no matter how clean you keep yourself, if you rub someone who owns a media giant the wrong way, they'll just obliterate you.
So I mean, the only way out of even being accused is to just mute yourself entirely. But depending on your current life, that'd make life not worth living, since the internet is a vehicle for thought, expression. Without being able to make your thoughts into reality, what's the point of living? >Despite all my rage I am just a rat in a cage
So my new strategy is to just not rub powerful people the wrong way. That's a green light to shitpost all you want, who in the world are you rubbing wrong by doing that?
it's symptomatic of not confronting death, I think.
If you are defamed, it's social suicide - but it can be suicide if you rely on society. Maybe that's something worth changing: that reliance.
I'm not sure, it's an interesting topic. Here are some of my thoughts and justifications as to why I write random stuff online. "Crito" comes to mind
Right now I just clean my IRL footprint more than anything else.
Getting a flare of paranoia right now after thinking about all of this, but what can you do?
Just wait for 02/22/22! That'll be a wild ride!
I know right.. Going out getting drunk and being called aniki by some friends you've just made.
How could one not dream of that
Damn, I updated my webpage another time since and that didn't even cross my mind. Now I have to come up with something to publish on the 22nd.
Updated my webpage.
It was a sloppy update but at least I did it on the 22nd!
I drove to the city today for the first time to get my license, everything went smooth.
I just terminated a friendship I had for over two years because I felt very uncomfortable today with the group he has. I'm definitely not entirely blameless for what happened but I think that that environment was not something I could grow in.
I could cry over it, but what is done is done. All I can do is move on, improve, and hope fate allows me to find and connect with others on the same road as I.
Had the sudden urge to post on an imageboard for the first time in years. Occasionally I recall the time I spent on the others now long gone and I get sad. It’s comforting to see a small slice of what once was is still alive.
>>13549>Never trust a foot fetishist. He's either brainwashed or trying to sell you something.
A man after my own heart.
Also I very much like your summary of Akebi as "a leisurely stroll through the garden of fetishism and/or iyashi-kei with yuri undertones"
Updated my webpage with an analysis of the first episode of Akebi-chan no sailor-fuku.>>13558
I ended up reaching the conclusion it was indeed a leisurely stroll through the garden of fetishism at episode 10 (https://sushigirl.us/otaku/res/3512.html#3766
). I would have been sure earlier were it not for episode 7.
TY sushi roll friend. I liked the article on english and the pre centralized internet. I'm hopeful for the future, and not in love with the present nor the past.
>>13564>I ended up reaching the conclusion it was indeed a leisurely stroll through the garden of fetishism at episode 10
I think I agreed with that read on it as early as episode 02
Which happened to be one of my favorite episodes, in part because of how shockingly blunt it was about these characters being sexual. It, and the whole show, felt surprising in a way ecchi anime never do, and I loved it.
I want to add that it's not just surprising, but also subtle and novel all at the same time. I think you summed up what I'm feeling about it very well with what you say about the line between inclination and fetish. In a lot of ways I think why it's such an alluring show is because it's exploring that transitional space between innocence and eroticism, inclination and fetish, friendship and romance, child and adult etc.
A little off topic, but this is reminding me of the word "liminal" from another thread. Another word I like is "twi" though it doesn't really count as it's own word anymore.https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/twi-
Where liminal means somehow not in the two places it is between, twi seems to mean in both of the two places at once.
It sounds funny to say Akebi is exploring themes in twi and liminal spaces.
Sometimes I worry most people don't like words and my collecting and playing and elucidating with them gets on nerves.
Do you rolls like words?
New words are fun whenever the other party doesn't act shocked that I don't know them already.
I like words, I especially like knowing their etymologies and how seemingly unrelated words are connected near their root.
Not English but I recently discovered there are two words for 'pistacchhio' in spanish: pistache and alfóncigo. The latter comes from hispanic arabic 'alfustaq' which in turn comes from classical arabic 'fustuq' from middle persian 'pistaq' ultimately from greek πιστακιον. Two very different words with the same origin, and meaning!
Very interesting indeed!
Linked your post in my neocities profile. You got the attention of all my 37 followers.
As for words, I try to learn a couple on occasion (english words, I mean. Japanese, I'm always grinding) and then make an effort to use them the following weeks, but eventually they fade away from my memory.
I feel fine…. wish the rain would stop though
I'm couped my inside…
Time for video games. Where's my ELDEN RING disc?
Not that great. I don't know where to go anymore, on the Internet only Sushichan is left. A little variety would be great, but all sites I know don't exist anymore, are dead or turned to shit. I remember seeing a thread about other websites on Sushi, but I can't find it anymore. Maybe it has fallen off the board?
Hey that is beautiful. Learning about stories of words gives a new perspective. We call pistachio "fıstık" in Turkish. Which probably comes from Arabic. But it looks like the word ultimately comes from Persian, not Greek.
Haaaa…. I feel the same, but I think it has something to do with my attention and an addiction like pattern of behavior with 4chan (reddit/facebook/twitter/etc I think are the same)… It's not that there less places out there on the net, its that the good places require calm stable focus and don't have weird dopamine skinner box hacks working on your brain, so when you're in a certain state of mind, you can't really find or focus on the good parts of the net.
But about the thread, you weren't thinking of one of these were you?:https://sushigirl.us/lounge/res/1640.htmlhttps://sushigirl.us/silicon/res/846.htmlhttps://sushigirl.us/silicon/res/1596.html
There are indeed quite a few good places left and they surely have to offer something, if you get invested in them. They all feel samey though, because they mostly offer the same. Sure, the community makes the place, but the boards, threads and discussions are more or less the same. So, what does it matter if I talk about topic y here or there? If you have a place with a community you like, then you are set. I guess I wasn't precise enough when I wrote the previous post, well I was frustrated back then. The more accurate statement would rather be that the uniqueness is lost, the Internet lacks variety and creativity.
I know your issue with the faster and bigger sites, I had that too. You get stuff way faster and you get way more too. You are basically being entertained around the clock. Stuff like being quoted, upvoted, shared, suggestions, discovering something new and whatever only gives you more and more dopamine kicks. Due to the low quality on the big websites I retreated to smaller ones though, this was already 6 years ago and I don't miss it at all.
Unfortunately, none of the threads you linked are the one I meant, but thank you for your effort.
>>13638>the Internet lacks variety and creativity
like, I get what you're saying… but at the same time, when I think about it, I'm sure it must be objectively false. There are more people on the net then ever and the old sites and tools have never really gone away. There's still irc and bbs but now there's tor and people trying to start 'federated' internet and just so many programmers making weird things and putting them up. And then there's all online games… that's probably where most decline can be seen, old unpopular mmo's really are probably ghost towns if servers for them can even still be found.
I'm not saying your wrong, cause I feel it too, but surely there's more going on.
The Internet is more of an extension of the real life now, instead of being a world on its own. It is centralized and commercialized nowadays. Most of those new people didn't immigrate into the existing world, they took it over like conquerors and changed it, while corporations, politicians and so on followed. The old Net surely still exists, like you said, irc, bbs, forums, image boards, textboards and so on, but they are not the powerhouse the once were. Many of them dont exist anymore, turned bad or lost a tremendous amount of users. I understand what you mean, although to me it is like instead of having countless colours on the Internet we only have a few today, but in different shades.
Yeah that could be it. Eternal September as they say. Back in the day it wasn't just easy to get online. You couldn't do it on a computer you carried in your pocket made of shiny user friendliness. It must have felt like like passing through some kind of veil. Somewhat magical. And I bet when that was how it was, there were people who would go through the effort and end up in obscure places who nowadays dont need to bother as much. Just stay on Facebook. So theres both less people putting in effort to connect with odd communities online, and more people who never would have ended up on the internet. Well kept gardens die by pacifism as they say.
Well said, sushi. Thanks for our exchange btw, I needed that. I have been feeling down lately and it helped having somebody read and respond to my ramblings.
I've been feeling kind of down in the dumps. My personal life has been going better than it has been in a long time, but socially I'm in turmoil. I really wish people were more accessible in real life so I wouldn't be so dependent on the internet for everything.
Updated my webpage. I spent more time making new favicons, items and buttons than I did adding a new webpage proper. It's a little frustrating to not have all that work immediately visible but I'm filled with a weird sense of pride at the same time.
I wish I was smart enough to understand this
Unroll the sphere in a different fashion. Think of it as infinitely many parallel circles, each one smaller than the next. Seen from the "front", each circle is a line which is 2sin(x) for varying x. So each circle is actually 2πsin(x).
That's a lot of handwaving there but I hope my argument is understood.
I found it on another imageboard. I was able to find an old thread from 2016 which looks to be its origin after a bit of searching!
"The problem I have with this is that the step where it becomes the double sinusoid bump shape is assuming the result. It's not visually convincing enough."
Ha, the first comment was exactly what I tripped over and wanted to confirm, lol.>>13658
Thanks roll fren. The thing I had trouble with tho was noticing that the unrolling corrisponded to the sin function, when I first saw the gif it wasn't obvious that should be true, and if it wasn't, the density of dx in the final integration would be wrong, right?>>13657
I was a little worried I was going to get made fun of for all the handwaving I did in my exploration of why unrolling should be sin(x), so it's kinda a complement to hear it looks smart. TY… But! "Smart" is how fast a person could go if they try, "effort" is how fast they actually go, and "knowledge" is the places they go and the things they see. I hope you aren't feeling bad about yourself… Just because you haven't seen something I have, doesn't mean you aren't smart or that you haven't picked up some really cool pieces of knowledge!
Updated my webpage. Adding new stuff on more than one page feels fresh.
My back hurts like hell, shouldn't have spent the whole day in bed :/
A bit anxious as I have to go out and get a lot of things done today. I need to go get a haircut, visit the bike shop to buy a helmet and go to the Chinese supermarket to buy some instant noodles.
trying to keep distracted and not feel to bad about myself.
I'm feeling ok (._.)
I have officially become a mysoginist
officially? Do you get a certificate?
I keep failing the practical exam. At this rate I'll never become a mysoginist.
Yes, I got my mysoginist badge at mysoginy university. Took a lot of time but I passed the final exam with great marks
I got through my first week of summer term. i also finally came back to sushi after a month of being busy :)
Being bored and drinking tea
