The 7th Day of Glasses + Plans

So far, it’s been a week. I’ve gotten pretty used to these things, though they still have their problems, I’m enjoying being able to see, at least, when I look away from the computer monitor.

So far, 7 days… today’s the exact day I got them, so I’m wondering what else will happen/be done from throughout the week.

(more…)

Since Monday

So far, I’ve been trying to get used to my glasses ASAP, I’m glad my vision isn’t so bad that I’m in need of them 24/7. At least it’s better than the example I provided earlier, but htat’s pretty much the idea, the father away, the weirder things get.

Anyways, Tuesday was the real turning point since it was the first time I actually walked outside with them fully. (more…)

Today’s the Day!

Today’s the very day I received my glasses.

I ended up knowing truly how blurry my normal vision is. Apparently, it’s really bad. I’m very near-sighted, and I mean VERY. My eye damage could’ve been prevented so much earlier..

Apparently the $65 was for the down payment to have it processed ASAP, I’d guess. Ended up with my glasses swiftly, and another $65 had to be paid for. Expensive, but mandatory. Wouldn’t have been this bad if I was given that care in Jr. High. I was literally told school was more important than me, to my very face. Of course I’m left sour with school and that.

Regardless, here’s what I’ve got!

So, how bad is my eyesight by default/ Near-up front, it ain’t bad. But, anything that’s a little further, it gets worse and worse. I can’t even see the detail on leaves properly.

It made me realize how impacting it’d be, and to some extent, left me depressed knowing my eyes are this bad. I have to rely on glasses for the rest of my life.

IMG_20170704_202851.jpgThis blurry image? That actually sums up what I see when it comes to things in the distance. It’s not AS bad, but pretty awful. I can’t even see my own reflection clearly, apparently. Near/when I’m up close, I can.

IMG_20170704_202854.jpgThis is what I now see with glasses.

I looked at some older pictures, and my dog ended up being the perfect example of my eyes.

Phew.

I’m trying to get used to it as soon as I can, but it’s difficult. Tired eyes, dizziness, light headaches, temporary blindness when removing them. It’s tough.

But… it feels amazing to see the clear signs and the pavement below me. I can see anything and everything. It feels.. good.

I spent my whole day trying to adjust to them. I’ve made progress, but I’m not sure how long it’ll last/how good the progress is, the only real way to tell is to sleep and wake up.

Longer term use ended up with longer after-blindness, which annoyed me because I wanted to try jogging home from the last few steps, but couldn’t due to head hurting.

Well, I do need to train my eyes to adjust faster with putting them on and taking them off, anyways.

Phew.

The person that I knew?

So, on the way to the optometrist (still so very excited)

I was told about a person I once knew during my ironic pre-and-into blindness years.
It was a Saturday group, and the kids were dragged into it and they all became friends, usual Asian stuff, or so I’d assume.

I fell out of it pretty fast, fortunately.

However, the parents are still connected, even if the children aren’t.

What does this mean? Gossip!

So, one kid named Steven, I knew him up to a point where he was in Jr. high, and that was it. (more…)

How glasses can change a person.

Today, I finally, after years, ever since Jr. high….
I finally got to go to an optometrist and to top it off, I was allowed to get glasses.
Double on that, the glasses were going to cost a good hundred+, 129, but on the same day, we could get it for much less. Mother somehow had 65 bucks on hand, and then, I picked out frames.

My mom somehow kept mixing them up as display = purchase because they’re readily. That’s not how glasses work, I had to explain. It needed to be cut, because these are real honest to goodness, seeing eye glasses.

Now, none of that, important.
The biggest important part is, when he got temporary glasses for me to try on.

What I’ve seen was the attention to detail I miss, things I used to see as a child… (more…)

Minna de “Critique”! – Cooking & Recipes

Phew. It’s the morning, and while I should be sleepin’, I’m gonna continue at what I’ve planned, because the only way to be somethin’ is dedication. I don’t like half-assing things and leaving them incomplete, but I’m not a fast person by any means. I’m actually the slowest person there is around here.

Today’s みんなで”クリティーク” ~ minna de “critique” will be about the topic of food, for it is one of the fields I can feel really passionate about for absolutely no reason at all.
People eat food. What is food? Sustenance.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again.
Food is life. If I give you a plate of food, I’m helping keeping you alive for another day.
There’s someone I recook and other-such for regularly. He deserves the best, and even had health problems that I helped remedy because of food. The Queen’s a neglectful bitch, and because of her, he had major problems, and had to deal with anemia.

*Anemia is a health problem that’s… as google says.. “a condition marked by a deficiency of red blood cells or of hemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weariness.”
Combined with nosebleeds, you’ve got a terrible storm. The biggest issue was, he wasn’t even getting enough Vitamin C.

Anyways… we must separate food into many categories. We must also know the basics. Why? Well, whenever I looked at recipes, I’d see idiots who literally don’t know what a recipe is for. You usually get how they followed “all the directions” and almost none ever say how “this recipe is a great base” or anything. (more…)

Sure fire way to get better at art! Kinda, maybe. Not really?

I was bothered to type more. I mean I agree I should, but still. I’ve been so occupied.

This will also sound generic as all hell.
I suppose I’ll try to mix it up.

The most sure fire way to get better at art, is to simply keep drawing.

That would be a lie. If you kept drawing without knowing what you’re doing wrong, you’d just be repeating your mistakes. I’ve done it so much. The best thing I can do is state what I did to get better. I’m not qualified to say it, but at least I can say that I’ve gotten substantially better from the very beginning.

A year ALREADY?!

It’s about time four our first-ever anniversary of founding our stuff… I guess this week, it’ll be commemorating our own achievements. Alone.
Just the two of us. How.. sad.

I feel alright with it… I guess. I just wish we could somehow have a moderately sizable following, but hey, if even one person cares, then we’ve been doing right by others’ eyes. Our goal was personal, still is, and well… it’s been a year, huh?
We’ve really been going at it since then. It feels really good. I mean, really, really good. Never letting up. The only problem is, he hasn’t posted much, and I’ve been doing more posting than anything. That’s still a problem. From now on, that changes. He’s going to be posting more, even if it’s meaningless drivel.

Regardless…. I have plans to come up with. (more…)

The subject of Weebs and OCs + Fur.

What is a weaboo? Internet slang for… person that pretends to be Japanese.

I’m typing this up as a follow-up to the reddit rant, because it covers the user archetypes and stereotypes, complete with generalization of the very same types of people you can find commonly on the internet.

Aside informing the uninformed, if that’s even possible, it also covers several points in how to know who’s a weeb the very moment you see them.
The biggest giveaway is -almost- always an anime icon. (IE picture of character from an anime, or a scene from an anime). There is no place for manga with many weaboo

I don’t know all, but I can say I know a lot. Also, I’m studying actual japanese for fun, not pretending to understand it. I only understand what I understand, and apparently, it’s farther than most weebs can ever dream to reach. Fortunately.

I will also be covering Furries, I mean, if anyone needs writing reference for people that -do- exist in reality. I mean, they are pretty frightening. It’s pretty ridiculous.

Lettuce Begin! (more…)

All in All

In the end, most of my irritation comes down from, not that last person, but rather what he’s said. The reason being is, I’ll never forget it. I’ll never forget the absurdity that I read. I didn’t have to read it, but he didn’t have to respond or say anything. It is indeed, quite absurd.

I don’t want to remember these things because it makes me feel sad. Sad that people like that do exist. I mean, if I really need that, I’d socialize on DeviantArt and say “Oh, you draw anime? Cool!”

No. I hate that “anime” style. Westerners drawn “anime” as a style, Japan draws it as part of their work/animation ethics. Animes are drawings. Anime is animation. It’s not actually it’s own style. Manga is the style.

I wish people would understand that.
