Honestly when I saw this earlier I completely misunderstood what it was and thought it was part of the soundtrack for a game called Hidden Ninja Nights or something. I’m downloading this (Shh don’t tell the government)
I suppose I could’ve explained it more clearly yes, sorry about that. There was just a prompt for naming the album when I converted the file to an mp3 and I was immensely proud of the name “Great Love Songs on a Hidden Ninja Night” so I needed to mention that but it might’ve been confusing out of context.
Super glad you enjoyed it though yesss woo
Tonight was a good night I got lots of studying done and went to some friends’ video showing (and I had acted in one so it was cool to see) and discovered a new drink apparently called “Blueberry Tea” which is Earl Grey+Amaretto and I am disappointed that it was not called the “Gentleman’s Shiv” but I can make my own variant called that. And hey I got to look like a bum in formal wear rather than a bum in casual duds for a change.
But yes mostly it was great to see friends again and plan t get together before I leave the country for half a year and also I am very thankful to be involved in the arts.
Final tomorrow and then hopefully reading by a pool for eternity if everything works out this weekend. Also feedback on my music from earlier would be great pls I’m super desperate for validation of my swag
Hey so also there’s this; my current roommate will be moving out soon and will be taking his PS3 with him so I thought I should take full advantage of Sound Shapes while I have the chance.
So anyways here’s a song that turned out fairly well; the sound quality is actually pretty good for recording it from the TV. Sorry about some of the in-game sounds and sudden cut-offs for certain notes that might be off beat, Sound Shapes doesn’t really have a good way to export the song exactly how you wanted it so I kinda had to play through the level I made and couldn’t always get the transitions just right.
Anyways have a good time yay wahoo
EDITING IN: I REREAD THE DESCRIPTION AND IT IS NOT ENTIRELY CLEAR THAT I MADE THE SONG ON SOUND SHAPES OKAY WE GOT THAT CASED I AM SORRY but yes I made this awoo
My Psychology Professor: People who are not depressed see the world the way they want to see it. People who are depressed see the world the way it actually is.
"My Psychology Professor: People who are not depressed see the world the way they want to see it. People who are depressed see the world the way it actually is."
Okay so. I feel like I need to try saying something about this because I very much hope a Psychology professor did not actually say this because one of the things to look for in depression are cognitive distortions; not seeing the world as it really is. These are the kinds of things where someone would get a bad grade, for example, and generalize it to the rest of their life and think that they’re worthless. Or encounter one jerk on the street and think “all of humanity is rotten”. These are just two quick examples that hardly catch the whole kitten caboodle of the concept but I hope it illustrates clearly that depressed thoughts are not usually clear interpretations of reality.
Yes, the world can be a bleak place, but spreading the thought that very harmful depressive thoughts come from a realistic view of the world hardly promotes wellness.
And the reason I very much hope that a psychology professor did not actually say this in an attempt to be deep is that it is especially dangerous to spread this kind of view to young adults, who I am fairly sure have the highest rates of depression. Someone who specializes in the field of psychology should know better than that. In short, please please do not romanticize depression.
There was a post on depression before that I reacted somewhat poorly to so I need to see if I can find it again so as to have round 2 because there is a very harmful point being made in an attempt to spin rhetoric in that post
Hardy har English major finals week humour
I’m fairly somewhat excited about the inking/bookshelf
If I ever get married, our vows better be based on the Team Rocket motto.
I vow to protect you from devastation.
To unite our privates and feel sensation.
To pronounce you as my one true love,
and see the glitter of your eyes in the stars above.
Team Rocket, married, committed for life!
Pronounce us now, as husband and wife!
This is the best thing I’ve seen on Tumblr today.
It came back to my dash you guys I faced the odds I went the distance

I’m excited for this exam to be done because then it’s smooth sailing and drawing and reading time again generally but this has been such a rockin’ class; my prof called the university “the academy”, I tricked everybody into thinking I was the smart guy at the back of the class waiting until I could see the whites of the argument’s eyes to shoot a point, and we basically read a historical text at the beginning of the year which was sort of bad and I was like “hmm” but then I get to class and it’s like “okay now we’re going to spend the rest of our lives learning why this author’s approach is so problematic”
The only problem now is that I love looking at history through literature too much and may never find a human being whom I love as much as pedantic essays about language and historical representations
Not studying anymore just doing Christmas.
No star just cat and man-thong Canadian tradition trust me
Also like really I’m in the bathroom, I almost forgot I was gonna upload this, and I’m doing it now because how fitting it’s crap hahaha
Very frustrating b/c I ran out of time for the assignment and know I could do better; I am kinda giving myself a break with how messy it is though, because I got the recording equipment a week before the project was due, and had about 2 hours to record while visiting my parents one weekend (the only place I can record without a noise complaint as of now), so I had no opportunity to fix up the trumpet part or anything, but idk, maybe I’ll come back to this someday.
Like it’s fairly ugh but listen if you’re curious, a musical rendition of Christina Rossetti’s “A Triad”. I hope it doesn’t kill you.
