    always remember that love will always come back to u. in a different form, different person, different hobby, different touch. but in any way, love will always come back.

    “Franz Kafka, the story goes, encountered a little girl in the park where he went walking daily. She was crying. She had lost her doll and was desolate.

    Kafka offered to help her look for the doll and arranged to meet her the next day at the same spot. Unable to find the doll he composed a letter from the doll and read it to her when they met.

    “Please do not mourn me, I have gone on a trip to see the world. I will write you of my adventures.” This was the beginning of many letters. When he and the little girl met he read her from these carefully composed letters the imagined adventures of the beloved doll. The little girl was comforted.

    When the meetings came to an end Kafka presented her with a doll. She obviously looked different from the original doll. An attached letter explained: “my travels have changed me… “

    Many years later, the now grown girl found a letter stuffed into an unnoticed crevice in the cherished replacement doll. In summary it said: “every thing that you love, you will eventually lose, but in the end, love will return in a different form.”

    i had this dream like a month ago that i was playing a dating sim and at the start you create an avatar of yourself and answer a few personality questions

    but then when the game starts you’re actually playing as the love interest on the cover of the game, attempting to romance YOURSELF aka the avatar you just made, and the whole point of the game was to try and show you why someone might find your personality and all your little idiosyncrasies lovable

    like if in the personality questions u say u like dry humour, then the love interest will comment on how they love how good your comedic timing with that type of humour is, or if you’re always late, they’ll mention how they always watch the door when you usually come through and seeing you arrive late is part of their routine, etc

    it was a super cute idea and i was mad into it and then i woke up and realized it wasn’t real lmfao

    tips to becoming a good artist:

    - draw things that make you happy - dont buy into the capitalistic notion that you have to keep a singular art style - realize that standard of quality is fake and good art is subjective - dont make art to please an audience, make art for the pleasure of creating - remember that you made this, with your own hands! you made this from nothing! you can create beautiful things. the power of creation is in your hands - draw more things that make you happy - remember that what high class fine art snobs think about your art doesnt mean anything - remember that art schools are only useful in preparing you for the industry and will not, actually, “teach you to draw”   - you dont need to be taught to draw. you just need to draw - awaken yourself to the fact that you can change anything about your art at any moment and you dont need to ask for permission for it - draw even more things that make you happy

    hey i just wanted to put a quick post up for people that may not know, cuz i certainly didnt until a couple years ago, but the whole prescription glasses industry is a massive racket, and i wanted to let people know about the more affordable options for buying or replacing glasses

    when you go to an optometrist to get your eyes tested, they take a lot of measurements and will give you a prescription that lists things like how near or farsighted each eye is, spherical and cylindrical measurements for astigmatism, etc, but one measure they almost always leave out of the portion they give you is your interpupillary distance, that is, the distance between your pupils, measured in millimeters

    the reason they leave that out is because if you have your full prescription, including the interpupillary distance, you can just go online and buy glasses from a place like zenni optical for less than $20 USD. and if you go and buy them online, thats ~$200 they dont get to bilk from you

    so, you have two options, you can either request your interpupillary distance number when you get your eyes tested, which they cant legally withhold from you because its medical information

    This Is Specifically Enforced By The Federal Trade Commission!

    they dont get to withhold this! a lot of them will lie to you, or try to skirt around it, because they want your money. raise a fucking stink. this is an argument you can win.

    the other option is to measure your interpupillary distance at home, using either a ruler and a mirror, or a phone app which is made for this purpose

    once you have your full prescription information, you can buy glasses online, made to your specific prescription, for well under a TENTH the cost of ones you would buy at a brick and mortar store

    Hedgehog 101: Chaos

    “Do you know nothing, fool? It’s Chaos! The God of Destruction!” Welcome back to Hedgehog 101, the series that breaks down everyone and everything in the Sonic the Hedgehog World. Today, we will be examining one of the toughest foes Sonic has ever faced: Chaos: the God of Destruction.

    Chaos is a being composed of water who took on a variety of forms when it first appeared in Sonic Adventure. Referred to as the God of Destruction by old Egghead, Chaos is widely considered to be one of Sonic’s most powerful and dangerous opponents to date. However, while Chaos sets the standard for not to be f***ed with, it would be a stretch to refer to the creature as evil. In ancient times, Chaos was a peaceful being who resided at the shrine of the Master Emerald. It’s unclear as to where Chaos came from per say but it is widely believed that it is a chao mutated by the negative energies of the chaos emeralds. Though that might give you the impression that Chaos is evil but it was a rather gentle creature who took the role of protecting the Chao that gathered around the Master Emerald Shrine. When the Knuckles Clan attempted to take the emeralds for themselves however, they inadvertently attacked the chao. Under the impression that the innocent creatures it had sworn to protect had been killed, Chaos entered a blind rage that resulted in the eradication of the Knuckles Tribe and would have led to the end of the world if not for the intervention of Tikal, who sealed Chaos within the Master Emerald. This would have been the end of Chaos’ story if not for the fact that Eggman had to release it by shattering the Master Emerald with the intention of using it to destroy the world.

    Now at first glance, Chaos might not seem like that big a deal. His base form (referred to as Chaos 0) possess great strength and the ability to shape shift but it is rather slow and is easily defeated by Sonic. Yes, while Chaos’ liquid body makes it immune to most conventional means of harm, as seen when police attempted to gun him down with no effect, he has an obvious weak spot in a hunk of grey matter in his head. Give it a good hit and Chaos will turn into a puddle. However, this is only a temporary measure as Chaos will always reform. Making matters worse, everytime Chaos gets its hands on a Chaos Emerald, it not only changes shape and gains new powers but his overall abilities double. Chaos 6 being so powerful that Sonic was unable to defeat him as he had before. That being said, Chaos seems to have a weakness to being frozen and shattered, which Sonic and Knuckles exploited to defeat Chaos 6. This knocked the chaos emeralds out of the creature but it was later shown that this only returned Chaos to his base form.

    This all pales in comparison to Chaos’ ultimate form: Perfect Chaos. Achieved when Chaos has absorbed all seven Chaos Emeralds, Perfect Chaos is said to have enough power to destroy the world and that certainly seems feasible as Chaos was able to completely wreck Station Square within a matter of minutes. Fighting Perfect Chaos is basically like fighting a massive flood and in addition to that, it can shoot blasts of energy from its body, create tornados and fire a Godzilla esc death ray from its mouth. 

    Needless to say, Perfect Chaos was well beyond what Sonic could handle at the time. Tikal, believing that it was too late, decided that Chaos needed to be resealed in the Master Emerald. A solution that Sonic did not agree with as he felt it would not solve the problem which was Chaos’ blind rage. Thankfully, the blue blur found a solution. After absorbing the negative energy of the Chaos Emeralds, Chaos expelled them from his body, which allowed Sonic to use their positive energy to become Super Sonic. After an epic battle, Sonic was able to use the positive energy he used to become Super Sonic to neutralize the negative energy Chaos had absorbed, quelling it’s anger in the process. Tikal then showed Chaos that the chao he had been protecting survived their encounter with the Knuckles Tribe and had lived in peace for generations. With all his hate gone, Chaos and Tikal returned to Master Emerald never to return again.

    <>Some more loose facts about Chaos:

    Though Chaos’ only major appearance was in Sonic Adventure, it has made cameo appearances on occasion. Being a playable in the multiplayer component of Sonic Adventure 2 Battle and Sonic Battle.

    Chaos is said to have 8 different forms but we have only seen six of them. They are Chaos 0, 1, 2, 4, 6 and Perfect. Chaos 3 & 5 have yet to be seen.

    Chaos’ most recent appearance was in Sonic Generations where Perfect Chaos was one of the 7 bosses. However, it proved to be less of a threat as Sonic was able to deal with it without going Super Sonic. Many claim this is the result of Sonic getting stronger but if you know your history, it wasn’t Sonic’s strength that ultimately defeated Perfect Chaos.

    <>And that pretty much does it for Chaos. Hope you guys enjoyed this little history lesson and join me next week for another.
