The "Bright Side of Life" Thread
« on: February 01, 2016, 09:48:16 PM »
I figured since we have the "What Are You Thinking" (General thoughts) and "What's Upsetting You" threads (kinda gloomy just on concept), we should have a thread to celebrate the small joys of life, be it the things that are making you happy right now or the things that lift your mood in general. If anyone thinks this thread is redundant or what-have-you feel free to lock/delete it. I couldn't find anything like this in Off The Wall anyway.

Right now:

- I spent the day catching up with my best friend. I haven't had a chance to spend time with him since before Christmas, so it was great just shooting the breeze and having fun.
- My mum got accepted for a new job today. She's been really unhappy with her current one for a long time, so seeing her happy makes me happy.

I'm slowly feeling less like [parasitic bomb] physically.

Managed to get started on a (hopefully) short story today to see if I can jumpstart my creativity.
Come and read some Thoughts of a Platypus

This is going to sound corny as hell, but it finally hit me today just how much I love this place.

I never really had any real friends as a kid (I was friendly with one or two people, but they'd come and go as they pleased.), and I didn't know anyone that even remotely shared my interests until I was about 14. Even now there's only one person I know IRL that I can wholeheartedly call a friend instead of a friendly acquaintance. Knowing there's a place where I can pretty much just be me, and people will not only tolerate but occasionally encourage my weirdness is.....It makes me happier than I can describe.

Thanks, everyone.  :)

Pretty much. The only other one I ever signed up for was the Official Nintendo Magazine UK one, and that website's been shut down since the mag was cancelled.

RPM's my one and only, I guess you could say.

Been alone with my thoughts a lot, lately. Came to accept some stuff about myself I kinda didn't want to. All I need to do now is....find a way to take that first step towards fixing this.

I'm sitting here, the sun pouring through my window, a beautiful blue sky outside, playing my favourite RPG of all time. For the first time in a long time, I actually, legitimately, think I'm gonna be OK.

Currently attempting to clear ANYTHING in this game on Master/Very Hard Class.



I've done it once before, about 7-8 years ago. I WILL do this again.

Today has been a good day. Spent most of it playing F-Zero, and in that time....

- I've cleared the Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond Cups on Master Class.
- Reached the final mission (#9) of Story Mode
- Cleared Story Missions 2, 4 and 8 on Very Hard.

Mission 8 alone took me a solid week or so of playing when I managed it about a decade ago. I guess wisdom really does come with age.

All that's really left to do besides unlocking all the character movies is

- AX Cup on Master-class.
- Finish Story Mission 9
- Finish Missions 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 on Very Hard. 1, 5 and 7 are gonna be [sonic clicer]s to clear though. I was never able to beat 7 on anything other than normal.

But Yeah! Good day!

Another one of my models arrived today, so one of my four shelves is now full. I'm deep into research for one of my character bios, I've already got a basic structure for my next short story already planned, and I'm listening to some of favourite music.

It's days like this that make all the terrible ones worth enduring.  :)
