Obligatory disclaimer that the humanities are also an important valuable part of academia and human society..................just................not what I'm trying to do personally..................listen..............
It just occurred to me that I should have made both this toot and the last one unlisted, rather than public. Forgot I was gonna try to stick to a "public timeline is for fandom talk" policy. Oops.

The saddest thing happened to me yesterday. I was talking to one of my engineering classmates about the replication crisis in psychology, and he just says...
"Well, isn't it impossible for anything in psychology to be objectively true anyway? It's all just opinions, right? Not that I really understand humanities, but..."
...They really do think of us as humanities... ;_____;
Today, the lab TA for my psych class looked at my laptop and was like "hey, nice sticker!"
AND I GOT SO EXCITED...thinking, for a split second, that he was talking about the Kaiji one I just got yesterday...
...He was talking about the TAZ sticker.
...I MEAN, THAT'S FINE TOO...IN RETROSPECT THAT'S THE ANSWER I SHOULD'VE EXPECTED, AND YET......
On a different note...I recently gave in and made a MyAnimeList account. So that I can keep track of what anime I have and haven't watched, etc.
(Side note: is there a better site to use for that than MAL? I feel like I saw one once. But MAL was the only one that came up through my search engine efforts.)
Anyway, according to my own input, I've only dropped 13 out of the 83 shows I've watched in my life. This seems...way too low, considering the way my attention span is.

Figuring out how I should write and present myself on each new social media site is...so weird, and so hard.
Like, on here I defaulted to the my standard "semi-formal" typing style: the way I'd write an email, but with emoticons sometimes. I don't know why? It just felt like that kind of place.
But on Twitter, I always feel pressured to type more casually...like, in all-lowercase, with contractions...I can never decide just how far to go with that, though...

...I made a Twitter account several days ago...because I felt like I was missing out on some stuff. Like, a whole ton of FKMT content, for one, since it's not like anyone's posting it here (afaik). But now that I have that account, I have no idea what to do with it...
...It feels weird making posts on there, when I could just post those same thoughts here instead...but at the same time, there are some people I want to get to know there who aren't on here at all. What do I do...
By the way, since I finally finished rewatching Kaiji several days ago…I’ve had a chance to catch up on all the anime I want to follow this season, too :D
The shows I’m now following:
I'm really enjoying all four shows so far, but I think my ranking right now is... MP100 > Dororo > Kaguya-sama > Promised Neverland. Who knows how I'll feel by the end of the season...
(Of course I'm also watching the Bandori anime, but that's separate :P)
I spent a while trying to figure out how old Kaiji's mom is...so I could figure out what decade she grew up in...so that maybe I could learn more about how her life's been.........but then I realized it's kind of impossible to guess without knowing how old Kaiji's sister is. >>;
(Personally I've always thought she's somewhere between 3 and 5 years older than Kaiji...but that's based on nothing. Maybe she's 1 year older? Maybe she's 10 years older? Who know)
OK NEVER MIND, I FIGURED IT OUT...I thought that fic was written for the 2018 event, but it was actually for the 2019 one. So I was just looking at the page for the wrong year.
But...the 2019 event looks like it's still ongoing. So no one's even started deanoning yet. Guess I'll wait.
I'm just so happy to find more Kaiji fic...even if it's in a language I'm bad at reading...and more Kaiji fans, even if they're on a completely different part of the internet... ;____;
:/; There's a Kaiji fic on AO3 that I want to translate into English...but I have no idea how to get the author's permission...because I have no idea who the author is.
...The fic was originally written anonymously for a fandom event on some other site. That fandom event seems to have deanon threads, but...I can't find anyone there taking credit for this specific fic...but I don't really understand how to navigate the site, so it's possible I'm just missing it...? Aaaaah.

Me, opening my weather app and seeing that it's below zero outside: oh, damn
Me, a minute later, realizing that that's in Fahrenheit: oh DAMN
Had a bad dream last night where my parents wouldn't stop making fun of me for not knowing the rules to some basic casino card came. I spent ages trying to figure out what the "divine winds" in a deck of playing cards were...
Apparently my anxiety about not knowing how mahjong works is realer than I thought. :P
Kaiji 306 spoilers Show more
Me after reading Kaiji 305: Aaah...it's not that I don't like Kaiji's mom, but I really miss Chang and Mario...I wish FKMT would let us see them again...
Me after reading Kaiji 306: AAAAAAA WHAT'S GOING ON!!! IS KAIJI'S MOM IN TROUBLE??? IF ANYTHING BAD HAPPENS TO KAIJI'S MOM I WILL CRY!!!! SHE'S THE BEST CHARACTER
At the moment, though, I can't make myself talk about anything but Kaiji. Sorry in advance.
