I hope you didn't get a 150$ pizza.
How about 15 $10 pizzas?

Or one $10 pizza and a $140 hooker?

I didn't think much of Moira when she debuted in Overwatch. But now she is becoming one of my favorite characters to play.
I just finished my last ever college final yesterday. Overall it wasn't too bad although I almost messed up the final problem lol.

Needless to say, I'm done school after Wednesday. I just have 2 presentations I need to do, then I'm finally freeeeeee!

Start my job in August, so really going to enjoy my time off in the meantime :D.

Congratulations!
It's an awesome feeling knowing you don't have to go to school anymore.
Ok two things

1. after a long day at work a friend of mine was talking about how he would like to get a drawing tablet
[ the ones where you see what your drawing on it]

after hearing how i myself have a tablet

[ the kind you draw but your still looking at a computer screen]

and after a lengthy discussion he came to the idea that he will start saving now for such a tablet and it inspired me to get on the drawing board myself,
my skill is literal dog shit so nobody will see nothing
Now since this was after work i am too tired to draw i know some will be like spoiler but the next day for sure i will be there burning my retinues on the computer screen hoping to learn and improve.

2. I am really excited and will be excited for the next few days cause my birthday is coming up and each day towards it is a day i hold my head high and say FUCK YOU WORLD YOU AIN'T TAKING THIS POLIWRATH OUT ANYTIME SOON UNLESS YOU EMPLOY THE HIGHEST BIDDING ASSASSINS THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN CAUSE THIS MOTHERFUCKA IS STILL GOING STRO blam!

Happy early Birthday!

And good luck with the drawing.
For someone who uses MikuMikuDance as a hoarding mechanism, it's my favorite time of the year: Original Model Festival time

I don't know what I'm going to do with this 3d rendering of a litter box but I'm sure glad to have it.
So with the leftover money from my last happy vent, I went and bought a new external HDD with 4TB on it- I've got a serious data-hoarding problem (TBH most of it's porn, so you never really want to delete it) and I was running low on all my other drives, so it's a nice burden off my mind, meanwhile I can consolidate all my data by category a bit better now

knock on wood nothing bad happens to this one, because the last time I had a new external drive, it ended up falling off a desk and getting it's connector knocked loose- was able to get data off of it, but I knew it would be a bad idea to keep using it
So in the other vent thread I was ranting about this RCA home theater system I found, that absolutely needs its remote to even do basic functions like change the radio station.

And I think I touched on a TV that I own that has horrible speakers and I was using the headphone out to power a shitty set of 2.1 computer speakers because those literally sounded better then the TV's speakers.

Well I got to thinking. That shitty RCA home theater system has an optical in... The shitty Toshiba TV has an optical out... and while rummaging through my cables I found an optical cable.

So I'm now using the RCA home theater system for its intended purpose. It's still a piece of Chinese shit with the RCA name laughably slapped on it, but it's better then the TV's built in speakers.

On a related note I don't really miss rear projection TV's. Those things are a pain to deal with, to put it lightly...

... but I do miss the sound they had. Modern TV's can't hold a candle to the sounds one of those old behemoths can reproduce.
Happy Free Comic Book Day Everyone!

What? Is that a thing??

I'm trying to count my blessings today after a few rough days.

I'm warm, dry and safe in a room that has privacy and all I need and more tonight.
I've got great friends who easily make merry even when they are hungover as heck and things around them are breaking down. I can even without worry say I'm sorry for not staying longer and go to my room to fall asleep well an hour before they all leave.
I can take control of the things that go wrong and accept (with some troubles) the things that are out of my control.
I am loved, love, and am lucky enough to know it.

And on a more specific note, I've been hypnotized! It still takes effort, but I'm finally feeling ready and trusting enough to allow my guard down even just a little. Just a little, but I'll take it :)

Yes it is!

Free Comic Book Day, the Holiest of Days, is the first Saturday of May and it's the day when comic shops across the U.S. hold major discounts on all their stock. There are even special Free Comic Book Day issues they give out that mostly promote upcoming series.

There's something about DXing AM radio that's oddly satisfying.

Yeah, AM radio, home to talk radio, news radio, oldies stations, and evangelicals who desperately want the verses in Revelations to come to pass.

There's something about pulling out a radio old enough to have a ferrite core AM antenna and a dial, and slowly moving through the frequencies until you hear voices coming through the static...

The station kinda fades in and out... in and out...

Then you hear their call sign and google it to find out they're broadcasting over 1000 miles away from where you live.
Had my birthday Sunday.

Told my friends they didn't need to bring gifts, them being there was more than enough.

One of my friends had other ideas. You see, she goes to an art school. And she decided that a great present for my birthday would be a highly detailed drawing of Ruby Rose from RWBY. She was right. I have no clue how long she spent getting the details just right. When I was unwrapping it I wondered what was in the package, and when I saw, I was so happy.
I did so fucking much today and yesterday! When everyone else is dying in the heat and you see that one crazy person running around voluntarily doing dashes and errands? That me.

4-5h on my bike these two days combined. Definitely got my 10k steps and more on both.

And best of all, I'm so goddamned tired I know I won't have a single dream tonight. Just that deep sleep no REM for me, baby! Fuck yeah!
But yu's cute an precious tho o3o

You're not wrong, but
We are literally the worst.
Managed to pass the class that's been stressing me out all semester with a 91, despite it being a bad match for my learning style, and if I'm lucky I might have a date either this weekend or next (depends on whether or not they have to work overtime)
Flash poll: should I take my Otome Road smut * with me on vacation?

Yes!
Did a write up one of my favorite films in recent memory, The Lost City of Z. I was so happy the way it came out and the responses I've been getting.

If you're curious, take a read right here.
Although my plans for a date didn't pan out, relatively good weekend despite it

made a pound cake from scratch to test out an electric mixer I got last Xmas, think I left it in the oven too long and it developed crispy outer shell, but I found it was still good, kind of like a biscotti with a soft center

My nieces paid a surprise visit when they came to town for a Mother's Day thing, so it was fun to hang out with them for a day and score some "cool uncle" points, plus they helped me with my frequent problem of baking more than I can eat myself by taking some of that pound cake off my hands

Also finished my last bit of math homework for the semester, still have one last test tomorrow, but hoping I can finish off strong and have some space to breathe, see a movie or two, etc.
Was there a thread for Infinity War? Because I watched it. As a moviegoer, I dug it. As a fantasy-booking so-and-so, I was disconcerted.

I'm learning how to draw some of my fav from rainbow six siege, and I can't get over how much I like their designs * u *)
One character at a time, first twitch, now finka, who knows who gets next.
And it's a very interesting challenge since I usually don't do much fanart !

Also, my graduation movie will probably not end up the way I first wanted, but it's still looking pretty good ! I'm so proud of some of the shots !
