    I was in a Krav Maga class once, but it was a bit of a bust (as in, the teacher didn't seem to know as much as he should have). But there was a guy in the class who'd trained in Wing Tsun, so he showed me some cool stuff.

    And besides that, I did MMA for a few years. Got punched and kicked in the face on a number of occasions. Fun times (but really, it's more fun than you'd think).

    Back to the Star Wars thingy, I think this describes my sentiment rather well.



    Or maybe it's just a really funny video I found.

  4. Sometimes it seems like it's harder to show attraction/love between two characters in books than in manga or anime.

    Deep breaths. You've got this.

    My favourites, of course...

    Tessa and Will/Jem [The Infernal Devices]
    Thingol and Melian [The Silmarillion]
    Beren and Luthien [The Silmarillion]

    Calvin in my role-model for life.
    Hobbes is who I want to become.

    When I was a teen, I bought those book-length collections of Calvin and Hobbes. Also, Bloom County. They might be packed away somewhere still, although I've lost track of them. I was a huge fan. I think they influenced me greatly.

    I only discovered Calvin & Hobbes a few years ago, to the detriment of my childhood. It's one of the best (or dare I say, the best?) comic strips I've ever read, and I'm quite annoyed that the newspapers over here didn't print strips of Calvin & Hobbes along with the usual Hägar and Peanuts strips.

    Calvin and Hobbs is great, but I think the Far Side holds the prize for best. My Opinion. Calvin and Hobbs is a close second though.

    And if you have not seen the Far Side, you have homework to do.

    Bill Watterson had very strict rules/ideals on how his strips were printed. And the popularity of the strips gave him the power to say No when he didn't get his way. That limited the number of newspapers that were willing or able to take them.

    I looked that up, and from what snippets I could see, the Far Side is hilarious. I'd be a hard pitch to knock Calvin & Hobbes off the podium, but the Far Side is at the least a strong contender.

    Thanks for the recommendation, I shall endeavour to find more of that.

    Sigh. Well, what can you do, I guess.
     
  17. My anxiety is getting worse. I felt very content and happy this morning, almost like it didn't exist, but I woke up from a nap completely messed up after having a nightmare (I don't usually have nightmares unless I'm having anxiety) and then I very nearly went into an anxiety attack (I was able to calm down a little after spending some time on the phone with a friend). Still. All the worries I felt completely free of earlier today are crushing me in and I feel like I'll never get out.

    I hate my head sometimes.

    Maybe you should see a psychiatrist.

    I don't know if what I'm about to say will be any help or if you'v already tried it but...
    I have a friend who had such bad depression she was quite suicidal growing up and as a young adult. last time I saw her last summer she was happy. She sold me how she changed her diet, I cant remember the name of the diet but she said it was similar to the GAPS diet which I am familiar with. She said within a few weeks she started smiling. I know a lot of things can cause anxiety and depression. Diet might be one thing to try. We are just learning about how much diet and the internal flora and fauna effect the brain including anxiety, depression, learning disabilities, psychosis. I've read that most of the bodies serration is created in the gut. It's one thing to explore.
     
  20. I have a therapist; my next appointment was supposed to be tomorrow, but it had to be rescheduled to a couple more weeks in the future...not happy at all about that.
