Last thread, >>7839
, seems to have hit bump limit so I'm making a new one.
Every time you visit https://sushigirl.us
leave a reply in this thread. How your day is going, anything interesting that happened recently or just to say hi, whatever!
I am new to this site but I like it a lot, it's slow but compared to most chans it's a lot nicer and has a lot fewer insane racist conspiracy theorists, I dig the teal color as well. This is a good site, I hope for the happiness and success of all sushirolls
wew this place is fast!
Yeah, since COVID there has been more activity here, nice!
Has anyone here watched Dark S3?
what's the fine for necrophilia in this part of sushigirl?
>>8315>Yeah, since COVID there has been more activity here, nice!
A shame she isn't as deadly as I thought she would be, but at the very least she made me reflect my life.
I finally understood what "live life as if you were to die" means at least
They're probably just giving that warning on the off-chance that they're rabid, or just aggressive in general.
I get foxes in my neighborhood sometimes, the only reason they worry me is because my dog likes to chase them and I don't have a fence.
The other day someone gifted me a game on steam because 10 years ago on a now dead imageboard I gifted people games on steam and one of these people wanted to return the favor. Completely unnecessary for them to do so, it warms my heart that someone even remembered.
one time at my old community college a pair of owls made a nest on one of the buildings and they had to rope it off because if anyone walked under the nest the owls would get mad and divebomb them. Eventually the babies were old enough to leave the nest and the parents cleared out

This sounds so otherworldy to me, sounds comfy.
Started Day 1 of an intermittent fasting regime, and I just hit the breaking fast part. Had a little dinner, and now I am going to relax with a bit of Goldwasser and some Sushichan.
I hope to sometime soon get involved in an online community whether through discord or an irc of some sort. I've never really had close friends irl and I've always had trouble talking to others online when I have a name attached, but I hope to change that soon.
Having done the same thing but to my own family, I think you should if you are truly worried about him. I'd never have admitted it in the state I was in but having my family show up at my apartment and give me a little support meant a lot to me. People are illogical when they're extremely depressed, and at least in my case I will often shut myself off completely from the world even if the best thing for me would be to just get out of bed and give someone a hug.
I stayed up too late again, and I will most likey regret it tomorrow at work…
If someone entered your room and looked around would they think you're a prodigious 10 year old or just a regular 10 year old?
They would think I'm a dangerous 10 year old
They would think I'm a depressed 10-year-old with a neckbeard
I've almost died one time because of this. I shat myself off too when I was at the bottom, and one day I woke up with 41 celsius body temperature. I didn't call the ambulance. If I died, I would be found a week later by the smell.
I put my desk plant outside in the rain today so it gets nutrients.
What should I name my plant sushis?
I had a dream where I was in a basketball game and was balling out and hit a slam dunk
I got some free stuff today. Someone was throwing out a jewelry mirror cabinet thing and a piano chair while moving out, so I took them after asking. I don't have jewelry, but I wanted a standing mirror, and this thing functions as one. There was other stuff, but I don't have the space. Other than that, I'm still struggling to reduce my drinking, but I think my average has gone down about 1 or 2 drinks for the past 3 days.
I normally name my stuff with latin words
I had a really good dream but after taking a shit I forgot about the dream fml
I found a fire extinguisher today. I'm happy. I'm going to find the thread size tomorrow and buy a valve for it.
I dreamed there was a protest at a formula one race against the laws of kinematics, and there was an equally sized counter-protest in favor of them.
If I saw people protesting against the laws of kinematics I'd think they're insane. They should be protesting against the laws of gravity instead.
A few days ago I dreamed I had a gf who came to my place with groceries to wake me up and presumably make me breakfast, but I very soon awoke to noises of construction outside.
So if you to preferences, then audio, there should be a text field to input your preferred audio language. Type jpn in that field and it should auto select the Japanese audio track every time. You can set eng for the subtitles in the subtitles and OSD section if you find that your dual audio releases default to no subs.>>8348>PotPlayer gang
Never used it, but check the settings for audio and subtitle language preferences. jpn and jp are typical Japanese language codes. LAV Filters Megamix supports PotPlayer, I use it for MPC-HC and the splitter can do cool stuff like selecting english subs only when the audio is not english, etc. Helps with releases and films with bad defaults.
Yeah I could reach out to him eventually. He has been drinking for some time but in moderation at least.
Anyway he's answering my calls now and we've been talking on the phone for hours for the last two days, like we used to before he failed his exam.>>8357
What are you writing that dialogue for?
haven't visited sushichan in a few months, figured I'd swing by and say howdy to my favorite comfy altchan. drank half a bottle of wine and feeling moody.>>8357
eesh tell me about it. As an utter sociopath with nearly zero capability for empathy, putting myself in someone else's shoes to write dialogue is frustrating and confusing. Most of my writing comes out like demented scrawlings from the Underground Man.
Riddle me this sushis.
How come I have a hobby or interest, but don't really want to learn about it? Am I really that affected by school that even my hobbies are affected? I can't think of anything else except laziness, depression, or school, and the middle one doesn't even make sense. Laziness would mean it's more profitable for my brain chemicals to do what I usually do, and that makes sense. I end up doing nothing easily for long periods of time while learning requires my brain to focus. I know I have ADHD, probably ADD (can't remember), so that's probably also the reason. Still, I find these things to be worth my time and think of a life where I pursue these. It's interesting. So I wonder if either my ADHD or my hatred of school brought this upon me. My hatred of school just being from elementary school all the way to college. I find it hard to study nonetheless.
Either way, I know that I want to do these things, but it's just easier to do nothing in the end.
Similar sitch. Can't tell if I'm depressed or chronically lethargic or both. There are things I know I'm good at and should pursue and develop, but I have terrible work ethic and can't focus, and I just feel a general sense of misery and hopelessness which stops me dead in my tracks. I'm way too young to be having an existential crisis… Recently started popping Lexapro which has made life a bit more bearable.
I get what you mean that it's just easier to do nothing. Not sure what the solution is.
Right now, I'm just trying to overcome the crushing guilt I feel whenever I catch myself enjoying anything.
Making nachos for dinner.
Got a haircut for the first time in a while :)
I have a confession
Sometimes I visit sushi and don't post in this thread
Drive belt finally came in, sorry it took so long. I exported a file where I cut it off where I'm pretty sure the track is supposed to end: https://files.catbox.moe/9axd6z.mp3
I also made a rip from the beginning of the track until the end of the tape, which is mostly just silence/tape noise/some faint jazz that wasn't entirely erased off the tape: https://files.catbox.moe/az642r.mp3
As a bonus, have a mistake they made while recording the album onto the tape: https://files.catbox.moe/72ypgi.mp3
>>8379>but if I started making money then people I know would find out which just makes it worse.
Just use a pseudonym, and if anyone asks where that money is coming from, just tell them you're selling drugs on the side.
This, or you found a big bag of cash in the back of a taxicab.
Productive yesterday, made a big bet for a big break.
Today not so much.
A big part of it is information paralysis. Theoretically, you have the tool to learn everything you want right in front of you, but there's no way to figure out the right structure or learning progression on your own. You can learn anything you want but don't know where to start and trying to find that out will give you all kinds of different (sometimes even conflicting) answers.
Productive. Passing out.
Going to make some pico de gallo if tomatoes aren't too expensive at the supermarket.
Do you have any writing tips? I've been interested in starting to write stories for a while but can never really figure out how to start one and get the ball rolling.
I peeled a layer of skin off my bottom lip and now that spot is swollen.
I also accidently burned the roof of my mouth while eating hot lasagna.
I got some remote work, but I'm kind of in a slump because I lost most of my social network after pandemic hit. I've found some motivation in creative pursuits recently, and it's kind of a bummer that this job is gonna cut into time for it for a few weeks, but I do need some work experience, so I'll just have to buckle down and do it.
>signed up for some coding courses
>no email has arrived yet
Guess I'll be a dumbass with only highschool finished for another six months
Was it online courses or did you apply to a university?
I feel like I don't take my life seriously. Going to buckle down and put effort into drawing and other things I love.
keep waiting it'll never come
I think I'm gonna get a dog
What were you waiting for, sushi?
I postulated for a coding course (IIRC it was Front-end mostly but I selected many) and had to wait for a mail in which they give you a test with some algebraic tasks and some questions about code.
I got 24/30 right, hope I get in there, though I'd have to ask them to change my schedule from night to afternoon. I'm busy at that time.
Oh. Glad to hear that!
A girl said hello to me today, that was really nice. She sounded scandinavian or something, and she had long plats that went down to her waist.
I work at a call center and some guy said I have a calming voice.
I don't understand the appeal of taking pictures of yourself in front of beautiful places and scenery. Whenever I see pictures like that I always get annoyed because what I would actually rather look at is behind them!
I pretty much just research whatever I need to research then daydream and try to give it form as I go, it's not really good practice because if you don't know the plot first you'll have a terrible ending. It might be ok for a serial maybe. They have a bad reputation, but if your well of ideas is completely dry you could try writing fanfiction as practice, that way a lot of work is done for you. Just take and idea for an adventure you had or pick a different path in the story's crossroads and write that.
I decided to name it "Fruito" which in medieval Latin means "to enjoy." Fruito got too much sun exposure and it yellowed actually, so maybe I shouldn't keep it outside for too long.
This picture is giving me anxiety.
Don't die, roll.
Always a risk, but I've been climbing trees since I was a little kid, and I really don't want to stop. Nothing feels like a tree to climb in the way it gives you interesting handholds, but also blocks and pokes you. Also some good views.
Always test a branch before using it. Always have at least two branches to support when you've up high. Always grab close to the trunk; only go out on metaphorical limbs.
Post a pic if you can!
I have some pretty big trees here, which don't have any low branches, however, and I can't reach them.
I found a big a ocado tree the other day, wanted tk climb it to see if there were any fruit high up, but I didn't get past the first branch because I was afraid I couldn't get myself back down afterwards. I might try again someday.
I have a performance meeting in 2 hours. I got a light scolding two weeks ago, hopefully things work out.
Good luck sushi!
Another day doing nothing, huh
Went better then expected, thanks sushi!
I'm not going to lie. For me, it's the complete opposite. It's not the information overload, but the fact that any information I want to get would slip through my head. If you don't use it, you lose it. This has probably crippled me a bit.
I hate to imagine losing information that I worked SO hard for like some kind of bucket with a bunch of holes in it. I've imagined the possibility of studying for something and losing 70% of everything I've learned for a job because I don't need it. It's a horrible thought. Same thing for hobbies I guess.
So that + hatred of school and studying + other issues. And yet, somehow, I'm able to remember a bunch of information on video games.
Incredible how extorting ridiculous moneys from an overwhelmingly broke demographic is a stable business model for them. A bit late now, but do you know about the library genesis?
Learn anki or idorecall or some other flashcard system. Imprint the habit of making flashcards as you learn. Make flashcards of indexes to knowledge, rather than only base knowledge. Actively remove cards and take care not to add too many.
You can recall everything you learn, but there is overhead. The really hard part is choosing what to forget, what to index, and what to etch into your mind.
My habit is pretty comfy, as soon as I wake up it's espresso and flashcards. ^u^
Hello again sushi. Hope you're all doing well.
You are thinking too small.
One day, I will BE Japanese.
Still too small, you can be Japan itself!
I too thought this at one point…now I can speak Japanese.
Why do I feel as if, if I were to cut off a vein, blood would burst hard from it, despite things not working that way?
There's this album (see embed) I particularly enjoy, called "~Refrain~ The Songs Were Inspired By 'Evangelion'". As the name says, it consists of a few Eva insert song rearranges, along with a bunch of original Yoko Takahashi tracks. What's less known is that it was actually a double release, alongside a much more obscure (at least on the Western side of the internet) album called Li-La, which is equally awesome! My favorite track on it is https://www.soundcloud.com/carsyn-perry/tamashii-no-refrain-erato-version
If sushis have the opportunity to grab the albums through jpopsuki or slsk or whatever, I highly recommend both. They're a nice mix of 90's J-Pop, breakbeat & drum machine goodness, and some new-agey vibes.
Anyway, it's 3:30 AM, it's warm with a little, barely noticeable breeze outside, the city lights are beautiful, and I'm feeling good.
Hola すし, hope you're all doing well.
>>8500>three languages in one post
no touching i find it disgusting T_T
I came across the word 'antidisestablishmentarianism' twice today.
I had never heard it before.
reminds me of those old REPOST THIS OR DIE comments
PLEASE DON'T READ THIS. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this comment to at least 3 videos, you will die within 2 days. Copy and paste this, to be saved
I want to be taken care of by a mushroom but I'm afraid I'll get spored
Wearing a gas mask with a P3 filter just so that I don't inhale dust in my house. They're rebuilding it, glad Corona-chan made me purchase this, sad the fiLter smells like ass
That's so cute! CUTE!!!
I don't know if you made it, but if so, your handwriting is very pleasant.>>8525
I've bought several P2s recently only to find I've bought the wrong model that's not even reusable. Shaame.
>>8527>I don't know if you made it, but if so, your handwriting is very pleasant.
Thank you! I'm a little self-conscious of it and was worried that people wouldn't be able to read it due to how inconsistent it can be, so it means a lot.
And yes, I made it after spending hours racking my brain in hopes of finding something to draw, therefore in the end I'm the one who should be grateful :]>>8525
But hey, at least you're able to look cool 24/7.
I bought a basic black one for when I need to go out in public and I wish wearing masks was more common, even without any pandemics going around.
Only slept for 3 hours, but I've been needing an excuse to go to bed early and fix my sleep schedule. Hope I can stay up all day.>>8521
Thanks mushroom girl>>8531
Woah it's real OC. Your handwriting is indeed very cute, and mushroom girl is too. good job!
It's pretty consistent to me! The only somewhat quirky letter that stands out to me would be the "r", since it looks like a "z".
Then again, it's not the first time I see something like this.
I wish the ideas for photos came that way too…
Speaking of masks, one of mine is a custom order. I wonder if I'm scaring people off on the streets.>>8536
That reminds me of the Niven Jazz Collection (https://archive.org/details/davidwnivenjazz
>So, impassioned by his love for jazz and a desire to impart this love onto his sons (and other youngsters), Niven began ripping his collection to cassette tapes. He would curate each tape and provide a commentary to each one as well as write meticulous notes on the cassette liner cards. His notes and commentary don’t just give us the listener a description, they’re a straight up master class on the history of American Jazz. In the end Niven’s sons didn’t really care for jazz as much as their father so Niven donated his cassette collection to the Fox Borough High School Jazz Program. It was the Director there, Steve Massey who passed on the collection to the IA. Then over several years, Jason Scott expertly photographed, cleaned, digitized, cataloged and published the 650 cassettes and liner notes online for free download in 2013.
I love the mask sushi!
cmon sushi, share it!
Don't try to pretend no one saw that :)
Good job being productive though
>>8531>But hey, at least you're able to look cool 24/7.
I don't think so, it's an israeli m15 so it makes me look like some kind of sadomasochist. >I bought a basic black one for when I need to go out in public and I wish wearing masks was more common, even without any pandemics going around.
I don't think the same is for me, filters are expensive and eventually it starts to smell bad. But it's pretty good for reducing viral load, blocking dust and bad smells.>>8527>I've bought several P2s recently only to find I've bought the wrong model that's not even reusable.
Can't you print an adapter? Mine is a 40mm NATO and the filters are 3M so I had to print something to make sure I can use the latter. I think it's more difficult if you have a 40mm GOST since those are from many decades ago
Big thunderstorm but I'm as dry as a bone
Oops, I really thought there was an error and it didn't post onto this thread, sorry. :)
Here it is:https://soundcloud.com/syndaflod/death
What I meant was a FFP2 mask. I don't think the filters are replaceable :(
I have nowhere to post this, so I'll write this here.
I have a really big gripe with Discord.
First off, it's a piece of shit spyware, like a lot of software on this planet, but people either don't want to admit it or are too oblivious to the fact.
Second, the people on it are extremely cancerous, for a lack of a better word at the moment. Every server just evolves into "haha funny meme, one-two word replies" in one point. Most of the communities are full of braindead people, who literally can't hold a conversation for more than two minutes. Then there's the huge amount of clique-ness in every server. Orbiters, e-girls, e-boys, etc and then on the other side, there are the 14-year old edgelords, who think posting their n*zi videos and constantly repeating spamming kazyncski/sharpiro/tucker, whatever cunt they currently suck off, is funny. And of course, the pedophiles, furries and the alike.
I don't know, where I was going with this post, but yeah.
Unfortunately I know what you mean.
All of my irl friends use it and I prefer discord over facebook or other popular messengers. Sadly I haven't found a fitting replacement that shares the features discord offers :(
I distance myself from the big servers and only join ones that have less than 15 people and have a clear and comfy theme, which will usually bring likeminded people together. This is bound to improve your discord experience!
And whenever I see cliques and just general degeneracy I leave and sometimes report them, depending on what the problem is. Scary how common it is whenever I'm on the prowl for a new server.
It's just like the larger internet I suppose, it's always kinda tough to find a place that's enjoyable to be and where you fit into.
That's more of a problem with people and communities rather than the software I guess.
I only use it to chat with my close friends so I never see those things people complain about.
It is a shit spyware though, you're not wrong about that.
I stopped looking for public Discord communities altogether. I've seen too many stupid people and began to lose any remaining shred of faith in humanity.
As some clever sushi roll said on a certain nice textboard, "most Discord servers offer discourse comparable to zoomer Twitch chat emote spam".
…Actually, I'll just link the thread. Enjoy.http://afternoon.dynu.com/read/1590468889
The social value discord once offeredexploited?
which fueled it's growth has since been exhausted.
All you have to do is join the ones with specific groups of people or friends that you know. Joining the bigger servers and trying to socialize is like playing the high school clique minigame all over again except people are somehow even less mature and the game is happening 24/7.
I think the issue is that when chats/sites become too large, a cohesive community is impossible to keep together. Like a room with too many people, it gets too loud and crowded. Hard to get peoples attention or do do anything meaningful. This combined with dumb meme culture that you see everywhere ends up bringing attention seeking people to the front and center. Almost everywhere on the internet has these problems, I just want to be comfy and chat about interesting things. I hate the constant drama and bandwagoning. Web 2.0 was a mistake.
Exactly, this is why I left most of my discord servers, way too active to track conversations topics and internal drama
I feel stupid for avoiding mainstream social media, when imageboards or obscure forums are no different.
You still have no friends, tangible experiences, or any change within yourself. And idle chatter toward nowhere.
Nothing to really learn or share.
It's ironic to shit on discord, when
This place is no different.
Some of the bigger servers can still be useful if it's a discord dedicated to one specific subject and you go there to talk about said subject. There's drama but since everyone there is a fan of XYZ subject you can usually get some good discussion going about that specific subject.
Well yeah, IRL is where it's at.
A golden dream can become real if you believe :)
Your expectations are set too high.
I personally love this place.
Obviously you can't use it as your sole form of social media, but it's good in its own niche.
Same here! It's not perfect, but nothing is. We've got a great little community here.
I'm here, had a protein shake for breakfast. Not doing anything today, might play some Dragon Quest XI. See you all tomorrow if I remember to post in this thread.
that's a really really good image
Yuno and Miyako sure do get around huh
"Do you ever feel weak?
Do you ever get sleep?
What goes around, comes around
I haven't felt right
Don't really sleep at night
What goes around, comes around
I feel for you
Well it's not the same
What goes around, comes around
I'll clean for you
While you're asleep
I'll die for you"
Went to the gym today.
Shame this site isn't as active as it could be. My guess is that a decent number of people lurk here but there aren't that many interesting threads to post in.
>>8644>Shame this site isn't as active as it could be.
Really? I find it personally very active.
I guess active is a relative term. I should reiterate in that I think there are good threads here, but that there's only a handful of active ones and even then its only 1 or 2 posts a day.
I keep writing replies to other threads, ,halfway I delete them and end up never replying, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
Just write them even if they're bad, as long as they're not offensive everyone will probably overlook it.
Yeah, I used to be one of them.
I discovered a new band that I liked
I really like the Hime cut. It's probably mostly from Kaguya from Touhou, but she does wear it well. Truly she is a beautiful girl.
Ahhh. What should my microsoft background be. It's school so I can do something funny or weebish
I only found this place because I was looking through the issue trackers of an extension for another imageboard. Seems like a nice place to quietly lurk. And these days, I could use some peace and quiet.
Seconding this, shows courage and commitment.
watching cooking videos at 4 am
It's exactly how I ended up here as well. I used to be active on Lainchan. Wandered on Sushi from the Lainchan sidebar, but somehow disregarded it back then. My bad.
I came back here these days and stayed.
In any case, hello!>>8632
What camera are you getting?>>8665
What do you do as an animator? Care to post some of your creations? I'm curious.
right in the feels
Woke up early, gonna make coffee and eggs>>8667
Forget weekends, I don't even plan my life>>8668
hi hi hello
I guess probably 90% of posters here are EU or US
One reply!~ Goodmorning! Scrambled? poached?
Just fried, on some toast and butter. I think I'm in a cooking/baking mood today, I might take a trip to the store and plan something fun to create
Tasty. I wonder if sushi roll has coffee with or without milk. Enjoy your baking, hope it goes smoothly.
Goodnight sushis, catch you some other night
>>8675>Enjoy your baking, hope it goes smoothly.
Thank you! If I make anything worthwhile I'll be sure to post it. Rest well.
Finish some courses and uni shit, maybe start reading a new manga, Any reccs sushis?
Hell yeah, those are the best days.
I work on films and game so I know how the pipeline goes for those two. I like working in Animate cc since it's kinda the underdog in the industry. I also animate porn!
You go, sushi roll. I aspire to be you in my next life, especially that you even animate porn. Is it fun?
I thought it might be, because people usually love the porn artists and it pays the bills too.
The work you've posted looks comfy.
Sumire 16 Sai is a good one that I picked up recently! It's a pretty awesome read so far and I heard the ending is amazing!>>8691
Thank you sushi roll! Been animating porn for years and it's the best. I was originally going to be a translator but glad I chose to be an artist in the end.>>8692
PARTY HARD BUT AT A COMFY LEVEL!!
Damn someone else remembered mighty milky way. Sick animations.
Did you make banana bread? Or maybe carrot cake with walnuts.>>8677
Educated sushi roll>>8688
I'm glad you
are here>>8692>>8693>PARTY HARD BUT AT A COMFY LEVEL!!>PARTY HARD BUT AT A COMFY LEVEL!!
Went for a bicycle ride today, weather was lovely. Pretty strong winds though! Not many people around because of covid isolation, it's kind of eerie..
Have a good sunday, sushis!
well, did you pick up anything?
No, but one of my friends bought a Gilmore girls magnet from them. They had this cool thing were any recite from their store had a fake bookstore on it and not the sex shop.
I feel so bad because half the people with me were underage. Nothing to bad, 16-17, but I felt bad when the dude asked us if any of us were minors. He was chill about it, the store has no hints that it's a sex shop on the outside so he probally gets confused visitors a lot, and let te minors stay, they only couldn't visit one section of the shop.
Feel so bad because I was so embaresed I left before anyone and I thought it was a cool place to checkout. The google review saying they spend 200 everytime they visit should have ticked me off. AHHHHHHH
Sorry to hear this sushi roll. It's not your fault you've been forced to work from home.
stupidly dancing behind my table recording a lolicore mix
never mind, messed up the mix, now i feel like a dummy
Tired tired tired tired TIRED
and NOT productive
same here. i cant sleep well and have 0 energy all the time. i hate this
Student events being cancelled due to the 'rona sucks more than I thought it would. At least I can still socialize through my job, but still.
Sound like you're doing quite well! I'm so happy for you sushi! Enjoy your new home and may life be leisurely for you!
That's some crazy success, sushi.
I know how it feels, had to go around with a measure tape and fight for every centimeter of space.
After a boring week of work, time to play jackbox with some friends :a
I'm always so anxious to study and do some progress on so many books on quite a few subjects…
These past couple days I've been mostly playing old school runescape instead, and it's fine.
just chilling, since i have a day left of quarantine thanks to a trip to spain earlier this month
i got college on thursday and am planning to see my friends more often at that point, so i'm pretty hopeful rn
I always felt in my life that I was a secondary character, a comic relief character.
I don't think I am supposed to have a main storyline
You don't need to feel like a "main character" to enjoy life sushi
Ice cold beeru is always nice. Have a comfy evening, sushi.
If ZUN could make touhou games with basically no experience, than what's stopping me?
Basically motivation and perseverance to keep going even when the motivation isn't at peak levels. You can do it sushi! More amateur game resources available than ever
Just remember to start out simple, small contained practice toy games that can be finished in a timespan smaller than your project attention span
How does one start with absolutely zero background knowledge?
Thank you sushi! I'll definitely take it easy. You recon making a simple rpg would be too high of a star to reach right now?
Depends how you'd want to go about it I guess, if you want to make something more on your own with Godot/Unity/Love2D I'd say start out with just making things move and example interaction with things.
If you're thinking more RPGMaker or something more already streamlined towards what you want to do I don't see why not
Thanks sushi you too :)
Sushichan was offline today :(
I thought that the site had moved D:
Glad that it's back up
Probably some kind of routine check-up or update?
Touhou 1 and 2 took two years and were basically the practice toy games that >>8767
describes and 3 was also pretty much a clone of an arcade game. That was how he got the experience and background.
It probably also helps to have a specific thing you want to do with the game. It could be argued that Touhou is just a lightshow for ZUN's music.
It's also worth noting that Touhou 1-5 were made when ZUN was in college and was part of his school's game development club, so he had a community of people to learn from and help him as well.
Listening to a Japanese christian radio at 12 in the evening and this has to be one of the most surreal moments in my currently short life.
Did the site go down? I was refreshing pretty often but didn't see anything like that.
I ordered some parts to fix up my old beat up GBA SP, namely a new screen and case/buttons. Should be a fun project, and if it goes well I'm excited to play some older games on it.
How do I stop getting too inspired by other artists? When I do my own stuff, I end up making something too similar to those who I look up to and I don't like it. Makes me feel lazy and unoriginal.
this sushi is right to some extent, set out on something to have your own experience (of any kind, drug related or not) and try and draw from the emotional context of that experience. Whether drug related or not it'll reflect more of what you think of as yourself then before. We're all just amalgamations of our past experiences at the end of the day so don't get too worried about it imo, just keep working at it and you'll shine through.
I'm joking though, I just like answering to every question with "Drugs".
In reality, I don't think you should worry much about it, try tampering with something you may've never paid attention.
Oh and if you do drugs don't do Benadryl
Just copy different elements from so many different artists that no single influence is recognizable
Being original is overrated, it's the execution that counts. Lord of the Rings is original in a lot of ways but the main thrust is lifted almost wholesale from just Christian themes of forgiveness and humility, slotted into a fantasy world that's 80% lifted from history and told in a story that's basically just a Saxon saga written in modern English. You can steal from people as much as you like so as long as you don't copy everything and so long as you copy it well.
Go offline for a bit and practice in a sketchbook. At some point you should be able to make your own kind of flavor.
Hello sushis. I hope everyone is doing well.
My sleep schedule is creeping closer and closer to the nocturnal as it does when you're NEETing.>>8745
Late reply, but hey, I'm up to the same thing again tonight. Really like this album.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxJzN0asbqghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7YNeLbsmbchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGCJ_aUHdu4
sushi roll said my post was good.
Today was a good day.
wow sushi that's a really pretty beach
that sounds pretty nice
Hey there, sushis! Since the last time I visited (a month ago, I think) there are lots of things going on for me.
First, my cats gave birth, and now the kittens are growing up to be so cute and fluffy. Can't attach photos since my phone browser refuses to upload it. They abandoned the beds I gave them and now chose to become a freeloader in my room. My room is their room now.
Second, I've been feeling extremely frustrated lately. It's a frustration that has built up for years since I enrolled in college. I wanted to go to medical school and I've prepared whatever it takes, even facing the sexist stereotypes in my country. However, my mom forced me to go to an accounting school instead and I absolutely hate it.
I'm on my last year now. And I've been telling my mom for ages that I want to quit—she just doesn't let me. I understand there are people who are willing to study accounting for better job opportunities, but I want to go to medical school. I know how taxing it is, I know how bad it is for medical staffs now during the pandemic, and I still want to do it. Not because I want to run away from accounting, but because I really WANT to do it. It's so frustrating, it's killing me.
Sure, being an accountant has a good pay, but it doesn't matter if I ended up hanging myself mid-way. I also hold a grudge to my aunt that told me, "you have a happy life and well-cared for, why are you, what is that again, depressed?" She, incidentally, is one of the people who convinced my mom I should go to accounting school.
I want to quit now. My grades are really bad and it's just giving me suicidal thoughts trying to make it afloat. Right now I'm in semester break, but due to my grades, I got an additional assignment which I ignored because I've had enough, plus the mandatory community service, which I also ignored. If I try to go against my mom, everyone would call me an "ungrateful daughter" and would go on to defend my mom instead, ignoring my countless suicide attempt.
It's useless to ask for help in an online board, but please. Someone, help me.
I want to live.
Don't let your mom dictate your life.
Do what's best for yourself.>>8834
This reads like a background npc text in a jrpg.
Woah, sushi, that's really rough.
>I wanted to go to medical school and I've prepared whatever it takes, even facing the sexist stereotypes in my country.
First, that's really admirable! I know it doesn't help with your situation, but you should be proud of your determination to be a doctor.
>Sure, being an accountant has a good pay, but it doesn't matter if I ended up hanging myself mid-way.
Yeah, I would feel the exact same about being an accountant. The salary attached to such a job just doesn't move me like it does some people.
>My grades are really bad and it's just giving me suicidal thoughts trying to make it afloat.
What would your mum do if you failed this year of accountancy school? That's one way to force her to accept that you resent the path she is laying down for you: just stop trying and fail. If you fail so badly that you won't graduate or be able to practise as an accountant, then there's no way your mum can force you to become one.
I'm sure you have, but you also need to think about a possible compromise. Would you be happy working as an accountant for a private hospital, for example? Or is your heart so set on medicine that nothing short of front-line doctor duties would make you happy?
Whatever you do, I'm sure you'll make it through. Ganbatte sushi!
What kind of country are you in that being an accountant has more status and better pay than a doctor?! I have colleagues who were downright pushed into medicine precisely because of both these points. That's ludicrous. Are they stupid?
Have you looked into foreign scholarships? If you have good enough grades for medicine, you could enroll in it in your country then immediately bail out and have essential commodities paid for. Take advantage of all the obstacles in your way to really paint a good sob story and you're pretty much set. Maybe you can even avoid the whole enrollment process in your country and get a foreign scholarship+enrollment right off the bat.
