  • I've been doodling a lot recently...


    OrabellaAvenue Oh they're so cute!!!!! I love that!!!

    Plus-One Thank you. I'm encouraging myself to doodle more for expression. I learnt to hate art at school, but I've really always enjoyed doodling. I think I wanna do some classes and practice more, it's really therapeutic!

  • Have you ever had that feeling where you don't know if you're excited or absolutely petrified? I feel like I'm increasingly unable to distinguish which it is. xD

    OrabellaAvenue Yep. They sure are similar feelings

    Plus-One I got very good at seperating the two, but I guess as I give myself bigger challenges I have to relearn it all!

  • hiya Plus-One!
    i enjoyed your post in the "Will human authors be necessary in 20 years thread"-- it was thoughtful, and the part about GenericAI instead of GenerativeAI made me laugh =P welcome back to YWS!!

    Plus-One Haha, this technology has made my job extremely frustrating this past year so it was fun to have a vent! Thanks for the welcome. :)

    XD I love your avatar and I also love Howl's Moving Castle!

  • Hey! Thanks for your advice in the "Someone bugging you?" thread. It's really helpful. I think I'm going to try that "point once a week" idea. Thanks! :)

    Plus-One I hope it worked out for you! :) I sometimes struggle to stop myself spouting opinions and discussions now. :P

  • "Why can't you cure yourself with a spell?"

    "Because there is no cure for a cold," Howl said dolefully.
    ~Howls Moving Castle, Diana Wynne Jones

    Even in worlds of magic there's no cure for a common cold. I like that idea. Very witty. :)

  • Your avvie... XD
    Looks like if he closed his mouth, he'd bite off his tongue O.o lol

    Learner1 Hey Plus-one!

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
