Sometime I hate myself because I don't make decisive decisions. I'm always confuse in my life. I don't even know what's my real passion. I feel like I'm not good at anything. This long-time dream of mine will never be real. I'll be going to college next year and I'm still confuse as hell. Even if I said to my family that "I wanted that course" "Yeah that course is perfect for me" deep inside, I'm not 100% of it. Oh and I think I won't be getting that scholarship because I didn't reach the required grade.

Also, don't you dare bring me down just because I'm studying in a non-popular school. The reason why I left YOUR school because I was bullied and criticized by my former classmates and teachers. So keep your pride down, your school was not that GOOD, it's not even a famous university so shut up. It's only a Catholic based school so shut up.
I'm sorry to hear all that, maybe it provides a little help if I tell you that you are not alone with this? I recently received my Bachelor degree and I applied for a Masters at an university which only takes a few people and got approved, so I'll be moving in less than two weeks and continue studying the things I always wanted to do. This is the exact thing I wanted just two months ago, in the exact city where I wanted to go, I got a nice, affordable apartment, the university has really good reviews and everything sounds great. Now I sit here and wait for the inevitable and feel unsure all day if I made the right decision, if I'm even good enough for this, if I even have talent at anything - I'm kinda good at writing and at leading people and I'm kinda creative, but that's probably the most outstanding thing about me. So, I think I can understand you well, so let me tell you this: Don't let it get you down when you're unsure about something. Even if it might turn out that what you decided for is what you wanted it to be, it's still much better to have made a decision than having done nothing and wondered how it might have been. I'm sure you're good at something, it's not always something outstanding, sometimes it's something in your personality (maybe you're especially kind and understanding) or it's something you get really good at through passion and hard work, but don't give up. It's not a bad thing to have doubts, it means you're realistic with the good and bad sides of what you're doing and that's heavily underestimated nowadays. I'm sure you can make your dream come true - my dream is becoming a game designer, I'd love to design video games or escape rooms which is not really a big thing where I come from, so it's not really a dream to come true in the next few years - just take one step at a time and see where it leads you, if it really leads you nowhere, there might still be another way to make it come true or you can pursue another dream first and get back to it later. I wish you all the best!

It baffles me how dishonest people can be at times. A few weeks ago, somebody stole my 3DS. I’m just kind of angry, sad, and confused as to why somebody would take stuff from others.

Edit: someone found the 3DS and got it back to me, but the dishonesty thing still stands as many others don't get as lucky as I did.

A more personal rant can be probably be expressed someday, when I'm feeling especially bitter about my intense loneliness and single status. But for now, as I play through KH2 once more, I feel a burning need to unleash this out of my system, despite not exactly being a subject of genuine signifance...

I fracking HATE Drive Forms.
I hate them. I hate almost everything about them. What's something I don't hate? Well, Sora's clothes look pretty snazzy.
Other than that? There's practically no strategy to using them. You just go to Drive, and then boom, you're overpowered, bosses will go down in record time. Challenge is gone.
But that's hardly a big deal since they're optional, right?...nuh-uh. You HAVE to use them. That is to say, if you want the high jump, double jump, the dodge roll, glide, etc. If you want to get all the puzzle pieces and make it through the Cavern of Remembrance, you need to use every Drive Form. Extensively. As in, the game comes to a complete halt as you have to stop and grind if you want to get those abilities.
I freaking HATE being forced by the game to grind this specific mechanic. Grinding in general is of course fine, since that's preparing you for certain areas or bosses. But I'm having to run through Land of Dragons in Master Form over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over just to get that double jump. Uuuuurrrgh. It's so tedious. So BORING. I just want to play the damn game, I want to play the Cavern! I don't want to have to do this time-wasting grinding just so I can make one single jump in the Cavern! Why is the game making me do this!? I don't want to use Drive Forms! When these abilities are fully upgraded, I never touch them again! I have no need for them! Limit attacks with your party members? That's fun! They're handy without taking away challenge entirely! Why doesn't the game force you to use that? Or summons, you're never forced to level those up! Why is it just these Drive Forms I'm being forced to use over and over and over?
It's even more infuriating because it's several steps backwards from KH1's structure! You want to get the high jump and glide? Simple (and clean)! Just play the game! Get to a certain point in the story! That's it! Progression! Bada-bing bada-boom!
I just finally finished leveling up Master Form all the way. Now to finish Valor and Wisdom then I can go back to actually enjoying this game! Phooey! What tedious time-wasting monotonous nonsense that probably is here solely as padding!

Bah, humbug. I assume KH3 will have Drive Forms back, but please, oh please, don't FORCE me to use them just to get a cool jump or glide...



Oh, and another thing. WHY CAN'T I LEVEL UP IN THE COLISEUM IN KH2!? This makes no sense! Why would I bother with these tournaments otherwise, Nomura you...eccentric man!?

Oh I just saw this right now. Thanks for the advice, I never thought someone would uplift me here. :smile:

Anyway, here's rant
This semester sucks. The other sections finished their theses smoothly. While us we only ended at chapter 3. Our teachers are very inconsistent. I hate it.

Okay, nasty one today, but it has a happy ending.

So okay. I was doing some stuff online, khux, doing Microsoft Rewards (I might be able to get a gift card in a week) when suddenly the internet cut off.

Turned out that a crack (And very incompetent) AT&T gang, who was supposed to be burying the neighbor's new cable, had managed to CUT ours. AND the water main. This left us with no internet.

Since there was 3 AT&T trucks out there..I didn't think anything of it. "Oh they'll fix it" I thought.

Well, to be honest what got fixed was the WATER. (Kudos to the water authority around here. They worked fast and even flushed the lines to get rid of a dirt problem.) But..no Internet. Or landline phone. Or cable. I had to call AT&T (which ironically we get all three from) and schedule a appointment to get us up and running again.

Oh and my middle brother, who I call The Troll online, was pissed to the nines about that. He works from home a lot, he called them and yelled; did no good far as I can tell. (And yelling at customer service people ain't nice!)

Anyway I got net now, but still $%^^*& effing burial team. I told the tech that came to pass along that they needed to be more careful, plzkthks, I don't want a [CENSORED] repeat of this mess.

Anyway the tech that came was a trooper and got it fixed. Thanks for someone that knows what they're doing!

I was so excited for 100 Acre Wood when it was first revealed 3 months ago, but then I saw it for myself, and……just why?! Why bother bringing it back if it’s just gonna be over 20 minutes with little character interaction and minigames?! We don’t even see Eeyore becoming a Nort!

(Okay, not actually serious about that last one.)

I'm in a silly mood today so my rant is going to be my food pet peeves:biggrin:.

I've been told more than once, as a negative, that I have a child's palette because I strongly prefer processed food. Basically I'm the women, who with a straight face, is going to prefer Pizza Hut, McDonald's, and frozen foods over a mom and pop or expensive restaurant's etc. Child's palette it is then, but I'm more than okay with that label.

Vanilla and Strawberry anything tastes like chalk. Chocolate all day, everyday, for me.

I don't like traditional breakfast food. That means bacon, eggs, grits, pancakes, and orange juice etc. Give me my oatmeal( instant in those little packs at that), and apple juice. That's a good breakfast to me. I did try grits on purpose once,but I had to drown it in Nestle Nesquick because that was the only way I could eat it.

Eggs are disgusting.

Gravy is disgusting.

Mint girl scout cookies are vile. They taste like toothpaste covered in chocolate. No thanks.

I'm not fond of ice-cream, chips, or cake. My go to sweets are candy bars.

Greens, all kinds, are really,really disgusting.

I don't like fruit. Although I'll eat a cold green apple or banana once in a blue moon.

Yogurt taste like garbage.

I don't care how it's made I dislike chicken. Although if I'm hungry enough I'll eat a piece covered in Honey BBQ only.

I don't like macaroni. Although I do love chill mac. Basically the only way I can eat macaroni is if it's mixed heavily with something else.

The rare times I forced myself to sip coffee it tasted like what I'd imagine feces would. I'll drink tea though,but only if it's a fruit(blueberry is really good) one that Is heavily doused in sugar.

Not a fan of lasagna.

McDonald fries taste better without ketchup.

Red velvet anything is the devil's work. Why destroy chocolate like that?

Water(bottle, tap, don't matter) is disgusting.

I don't drink, but the rare times I've sipped beer or wine It has to be what piss, doused in skunk dush, would taste like because my god how do people drink this stuff?

Pepperoni is the worst traditional topping. I think this to the point I'll skip a pizza if that's the only thing on it. I will eat one with only Italian sausage though.

I'm not a cold cereal person. The rare times I've eaten some it had to be out of this world sugary,and I'll usually eat it plain. Milk destroys it.

I don't eat crust.I always take it off my sandwich or pizza. It just doesn't taste right.

Watermelon is foul, and on the rare occasion I've eaten a piece I've had to drench it in salt to even stomach it.

I don't like ice. It ruins a beverage.

I can't eat food that touch on my plate. I know rationally it's all going in the same place, but I can't get over it. I will absolutely get several plates or bowls if I have to so this doesn't happen. If they touch I will pick those pieces off or don't eat it at all. Although I'm okay with things like pot pies, stews, or casseroles etc touching for some reason. Apparently the name for it is called Brumotactillophobia lol. It's a mild form of OCD.

I've always thought the traditional drinks like Sprite,Pepsi, and Coke were garbage. I love AW root beer though.

I don't like cheese in general, and on pizza it's the worst part of it. I love the sauce though, and will have my pizza drenched in it with the cheese being as light as possible.

While KH3 is by no means a bad game, I see it as the game where Nomura decided that nobody gave a shit anymore—and it shows in a lot of places, for better or worse—when there clearly was a whole community that still cared. A community I’ve been a part of for three and a half years.

Mods, again, sorry if this is in the wrong forum. Anyway...

I don't mean for this to be serious. Mainly crossword solver sip calculator we all get mad, we all have those little things in the day that make us want to hit someone/throw something at someone.
Anyway was just takin' a shower before I scrubbed my face..Seems we're losing the hot water heater, for the hot water has GEORGIA RED CLAY in it. Blaaah. It's pretty obvious.

I'm just glad I finished before it got bad. Okay, next?
I've wanted to complain about it for awhile now. And this isn't directed to anybody in particular. Just a regular pet peeve is all. xD

Looking back, I do kinda wish Mimikyu was a fighter in Ultimate instead of a Poké Ball Pokémon. In fact, Sakurai probably could've made it and Incineroar both fighters and I'd be happy either way.

The original Mario Maker's release in the US couldn't be any more poorly timed.

During dinner tonight, my stepmom and dad forced me to watch 2019 Aladdin for no reason.

I mean...it was decent, but they didn't need to make me watch it just because (and it didn't help that my stepmom has a bad habit of stating the obvious during a family movie, and I mean "Jafar's gross because he's a mean person" levels of obvious).

I had a good Rocket League group to play with for a few years - all guys. Two of them are my friends, one is the brother of one of these friends and one other is human garbage. Human garbage hasn't been with us since the beginning, but since he joined, all the guys behave like braindead teenagers. Whenever we want to set up a date for the next match, they use some porn slang and even send porn pics to do that. Whenever I hit another car from behind, the sexual joke immediately follows, they "screw" the enemies, we never discuss anything private or nice anymore, it's mostly a compilation of sex jokes (some of them are truly disgusting), "I have to take a shit" announcements or something else without any nuance. The final nail in the coffin was when one of the guys posted a pic where the text said that my name was also the name of the fourth most popular whore in some country. I left the chat without a word and never came back.

I already tried to tell them that their behaviour not only annoys me, but as a woman, I feel severely uncomfortable with all the dirt they throw on my gender. And, as usual in these cases, it's all just "humour" and even though they exactly know I hate their talk, I'm the one who's prude, too insecure in being a woman, need to stand "above that" and just don't have humour. Toxic masculinity at its best and it doesn't only make me mad, but also sad because I really enjoyed the years when we could play together and actually talk like humans with each other. I would ask them how they were, what they'd do these days, whether they look forward to this new game or heard that news ... that kind of talk. Now it's all stupid dirty jokes, pride in taking a literal dump and behaving like the most primitive people on the planet. :(

So okay, I've been having net problems since we had our router/gateway get fried, and then replaced. (Darn Mother Nature.)

A tech finally realized that somehow, the router thought XIV was a bittorrent or something like that since after port forwarding, I started major lagging after 30 minutes (@#%$%^#!). We're getting a tech to check the lines Tuesday and then my problems should finally be over.

Wanna know how little Spirits Within has to do with Final Fantasy? You could slap the Resident Evil logo on it and nothing would change.
