        Bad CGI-->lack of graphicness. More appropriate for TV I guess but christ it defo looks worth reading. I'll prolly read it at some point if I remember to

      yo~; any other anime suggestions, or you busy with irl stuff? also since you're in england...don't you have a-levels's now? =0
      1. Martin
        Martin
        Next year 'cause I started school a year late

        As for anime suggestions... Hmmm

        ReLIFE is pretty fucking good. Non Non Biyori and Non Non Biyori Repeat are also two of my favorites. I've been meaning to watch A Dog of Flanders (the series as opposed to the movie) because I enjoyed the movie and apparenlty the series is a huge amount better than the movie is.

        Slow. I thought I'd have a lot more time after my exams than I do due to the fact that I didn't account for the fact I'd be starting my graphics coursework and preparing for a horn exam in this time period.

        I finished my AS levels a few weeks ago (ended up being very mixed on the whole) and just started my A levels in preparation for next year. I'll probably drop DT graphic products if I can 'cause it requires /so much time investment/ and I'm not enjoying it like I did at GCSE.

        It's like a stepping stone between GCSEs and A levels, and it's basically the first year of your A levels for some subjects. I started school a year late so I'm I'm did them this year as opposed to last year.

      When I get bigger, big enough to go somewhere by myself, I want to go to a land that’s far away. I want to go to a faraway island.

        Also if u read the entire quote it is actually really sad ngl

        "When I get bigger, big enough to go somewhere by myself, I want to go to a land that’s far away. I want to go to a faraway island. I want to go to an island that has no people. I want to go to an island that has no pain or sadness. There are no adults, children, classmates, teachers or my mom on that island. On that island, I can climb a tree when I want to climb, swim in the sea when I want to swim, and sleep when I want to sleep. In the island, I think about the town that I left behind. Kids go to school, as if nothing has changed. Adults go to the office, as if nothing has changed. Mom eats, as if nothing has changed. When I think about the town without me, I feel a sense of relief. I want to go far, far away."

        She had to write this as an assignment at school and it basically unveils the extremely abusive relationship between her and her mother+mother's boyfriend and is a big insight into both her personality and all aspects of her situation.

      I've been seeing your posts and you seem a really cool person and experienced player, i had no idea that Stunfisk had a niche in OU until you posted about it hahaha people think that it's a pure joke pokemon like Dunsparce because it's PU and underestimate until they compare it bulk with Zapdos.

        O in that case I'll tell you the names of the books that I'm using. Buy them if you're interested and are gonna take this seriously (I'm gonna be bringing them with me to Australia this summer to try and make up for my half-assedness over the past six months lol)

        - Read and Write Japanese Scrips - Teach Yourself Beginner's Scripts (Helen Gilhooly)
        - Japanese for busy people 1: Kana Version (AJALT)
        - Japanese for busy people 2 (AJALT)
        - Japanese for busy people 3 (AJALT)

        Japanese for Busy People 1 comes with a hiragana and katakana chart in the back which also details stroke order/direction and things like that, so while you will need to refer to it a lot at first you will be able to learn it reasonably quickle. Do lots of drills with it and get in lots of reading practice to get used to reading and writing them correctly (a depressingly effective method which I used for reading practice is to take a gen 6 Pokémon game that you know how to beat without needing to be able to understand what the NPCs are saying and to play though it with the language set to Japanese, because in order for it to display kanji you need to toggle it on in settings anyway and you get to see the entire hiragana and katakana alphabets during the game at least once--making it a good way to quickly get used to reading kana). Make sure you're advancing through Read and Write Japanese Scripts at a good rate too, because that is a good resource for learning various kanji.

        Im convinced that people dont actually count votes anymore. That's the only explanation I could come up for that explains this and the fact that Trump and Hillary are the last two candidates standing in the US presidential race.
