Sounds cute. I really ought to go for a walk this weekend. Foxes should be out this time of year, and they are cute.


I went for groceries and I realized I didn't bring enough money when I was checking out, and a man who was behind me realized it and gave me some money, enough to be able to buy the stuff. It's good that there still are /kind/ people out there.


I've been working on getting my new computer running the way I want. I'm hoping it'll go well and that I can adjust reasonably well.

The first ever monitor I bought with my own money died today, RIP lasted a good 14 years though.

I love coffee so much! Usually I only use the cheap instant soykaf, but today I treated myself with a litre of oh so delicious coffee from freshly ground beans.

Just did some hard exercise, followed by mountain climbers to exhaustion for cardio (twice), all while wearing jeans and drinking plain milk.
Though most personal trainers would tell me to stop, I'm sure uncle Samuel would be proud.




Turns out that you feel less bad when you drink water.

Today I failed to ask a girl out, but I also learned that my emotions aren't as blatant as I think they are.
I was in love with another girl for like a year, and my close friend just now asked if I liked her (due to something I said), because it was somehow not obvious. Maybe anon was right and I did fuck up by not telling her how I felt besides a single "I like you".
I think I'm going to give this new girl another try, even if I have to act in a way that would be too explicit by my standards. If I manage to at least start talking with her I'll tell her she's cute whenever the thought crosses my brain and see what happens.


Kudos for trying.


It has been a while since I've exerted myself to the point that I can no longer perform the task at hand.
It's a disappointing feeling.


I did some body weight squats out of the blue last week and I couldn't move for two days afterwards.


I’ve started on a weightlifting program 4x a week. I kinda fell off the wagon with fitness during covid when the gyms closed and haven’t quite gotten back into the swing of things until now. I’d like to drop some bodyfat and get /fit/ again asap. Wish me luck!


You can make it Friend, do your best! :)




Thinking about buying a laptop to watch teh animes in bed. Unfortunately most laptops are lame and ultra lightweight these days which goes against my wants and needs, and the heavy laptops are quite a bit beefier than I'm willing to pay for on what will be exclusively used as a glorified DVD player and probably VN machine.
Is a Blu-Ray drive really so much to ask for?


File: 1685816586351.png (387.76 KB, 453x943, Untitled.png)

Anony… why do you need such? Can't you download media onto the hard drive, or use some streaming website?


Whats your price range, anon? Im pretty sure you can still find some relatively large laptops for low prices. They’re in more of a budget category, but maybe you don’t mind. Are you looking for one specifically with a bluray drive?


I imagine he prefers the aspect of actually owning physical media and having a dedicated player for it. I personally don’t care either way, but I can understand the appeal.


I know what you mean. I have a new computer case that I thought from the description would have room for my Blu-ray drive, but when I got it I saw it wouldn't fit. To me a disc drive is a necessary feature even if I don't use it very often.


Tbf disks drives are barely used by most people anymore since most media is streamed at this point. I know I haven’t used a disk drive in about a decade, personally.


File: 1685828553849.jpg (147.06 KB, 600x926, __serval_and_kaban_kemono_….jpg)

Sure, I download most things, but if I see a physical copy of something that looks kind of neat but wouldn't normally think to watch, I'll usually pick it up. Sometimes it works out, other times it does not.
I found a good choice, I guess I was taken off guard by the cost of mobility. Or maybe just seeing the price of a complete computer in this case.
Yeah, I was kind of disappointed when it was difficult to find a case with a disc drive. It wasn't a priority at the time, but came to bite me in the ass later…
Fortunately you can just open the case I have and have a loose disc drive in a pinch.
This is true. I can understand why it is an uncommon thing, but I just found it odd that it is so difficult to find these extra options. Sure, most people don't need it, but there should still be a market to some extent. Think about all those unfortunate people that only have CD players in their car! Nobody is going to burn CDs for them in this day in age!

You reminded me of this comic.


Ah. I kinda get it, there surely must be some sovl and appeal to physical media. Personally, I would like to own some physical media too, but the problem is that it costs money, while digital is free (unless for some reason you choose to NOT pirate).
I do not stream anime, though. I rather torrent it.
Also, I do not think weebs generally look like the guy in that comic.


>the problem is that it costs money, while digital is free
It isn't an issue for me. I don't really expect anyone to go out and buy physical media, seeing as I primarily torrent as well, but as I said in my last post, it is just a way to get myself to watch stuff I wouldn't think to otherwise.
>Also, I do not think weebs generally look like the guy in that comic.
"Today's mixed-up weebs" certainly do a lot of the time. Well, where I live anyway.


I mostly torrent things I want, but I buy hard copies of my favorite movies in the best quality I can get. I recently bought and ripped a game I really like from CD just so I have a copy that isn't on Steam because I couldn't find a download of it.

As easy and convenient as storing everything on a hard drive is, I think physical ownership is important. feel like people should try to have media they really like on hand when possible. It makes it harder for people to take them away from you or alter them in any way. Look at how people have been able to restore the Star Wars trilogy in 4K from collectors' film prints after the movies were edited and the original versions kept out of circulation.

>generally look like
I'm not a fan of stereotyping anything really, but I especially hate that the word weeb has become an insult and meme pretty much everywhere online, ironically while anime has become more mainstream.
Being called Otaku was better, at least people who knew what it meant were part of the subculture, now everybody has a new word for something they can shit on without knowing anything more about that topic than a few jokes.
Let's take anything social conformity does not agree with and put it in a bad light, so we have something to laugh at and shame people who dare to do their own thing.
Guess I want to say that I think being weird is being great! And stereotyping is bad and makes us into zombies

My impression is that the word “weeb” has become less stigmatized as anime has become more mainstream. People use it to refer to themselves a lot these days. Sure, there’s an air of ironic self-deprecation, but I don’t feel like the word is used in a genuinely insulting way


I think there is a difference between a weeb and an otaku.
As for what people call me, it doesn't make a difference.


I wouldn't talk about my hobby in a self-deprecating way either, you don't see for example sport fans talk about themselves in the same way usually, but I see the psychological aspect of just not taking myself too seriously either I guess


It's a joke. Kelly is the comic artist of The Onion.

I had a coworker once that described themselves as a weeb without any hint of irony.

I recently discovered that the local church is holding meditation every Sunday evening, which has been really nice.


Today when I was outside, I saw a girl wearing something that looked like a school uniform, almost anime-like. A white dress shirt, and a green pleated skirt with a grid pattern.
School uniforms are uncommon in my country, even in private schools, so I wonder if that really was a uniform for her school, or if she was wearing something like that because she felt like it, or if it was some sort of cosplay.
Nevertheless, it was nice finally seeing a 3D female wearing cute clothes. I was getting reaaally tired of only seeing 3D females wearing masculine clothing (pants/jeans, etc).

…Am I a creep?

I don't think there's anything wrong with it, though many people would say otherwise nowadays.
I think the timeless popularity of animal videos shows that people just like seeing cute things. It's pleasant and it's soothing. And since cute girls are cute, it's nice seeing them.


There’s nothing creepy about liking to see people where nice/cute things. It’s something I appreciate too. When I visited Japan for a few months I got used to seeing people put an effort into how they dress, and it was quite the shock returning to North America where no one seems to care how they look.


Please don't /pol/-lute this place, friend.

I don't understand how people can diet without working out. I need to do cardio to counter the calories I consume. I enjoy eating too much to resist.
>Guess I want to say that I think being weird is being great!
It is but my aversion to not let it be known that I am an otaku comes from the fact that people who wouldn't associate with anime do now. A school classmate of mine who was a delinquent unironically has anime stickers in is car now. You can see it as old guard who is wary of newcomers.
I need to get back into the practice. Thanks for the reminder, friend.

I'm pretty happy about the people I work with. They're all pretty kind. If they see that you may need something or are having trouble with your work, just about everyone will lend a hand.
They don't constantly try to talk to me either. They leave me alone most of the time, but they all briefly chat with me on occasion usually about work related things. It's a good balance for me, as I can't handle much interaction.
Everyone seems to have a high opinion on my work too. They want me to try being one of the guys that goes around and fixing issues and generally help keep things running smooth. They think I'd do well and that it would help me get a better position which they seem really supportive of my want to go beyond my base level job.
It was something I was concerned about when I was a neet. That I'd have problems with the people I work with.


The Japanese have better options when it comes to clothes though.
Delinquent manga is great.


I saw a couple in love yesterday. The girl was giving the guy the "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" look and body language.
It's nice that that sort of thing happens, but it made me a bit sad that I'll likely never experience it.

I've been cleaning for a few days now. Just about finished now that I got shelves to put my boxes and crap on. Just have to do the dreaded under the bed cleaning, scrub some nasty spots on the floor, a small bit of sorting, and then probably put some sort of weather stripping on my doors to avoid the excessive filth outside my room coming in.
Also planning on downsizing my wardrobe significantly. Probably keep enough work shirts for the week, work pants and shorts for the week, and a few very casual weekend outfits, and one decent outfit in case I need it.

All in all, I've mostly just been trying to make things easier to keep up with. I spend most of my time in my room. Might as well make it someplace I enjoy being rather than just where my computer happens to be.

I played the game To The Moon and it made me think about how I wish I wouldn't have been so stupid and cared about myself while still young, then maybe I would have tried getting work in a nature related field, something fairytale solitary like bird studying, or becoming a park ranger. I can't stand the thought of being in a city surrounded by everything loud anymore, but the romantic life in the woods won't happen anytime soon so what are you gonna do.

Turns out patting your hair dry with an old shirt really is better than roughing the water out with a towel.

The cute cashier over at the grocery store kept smiling at me today.
I'm not sure if it was because I didn't look like a crackhead today or for some unrelated reason, but it was nice either way.

if being in nature makes you happy, what's stopping you from being a park ranger for summer vacation…?
