My name is Michael, I am 19 years old from Melbourne, Australia.
I like kendo, Warhammer 40k, and metal.
I speak English and Japanese. I am obsessed with language, especially those which don't belong to the English language sub-family.
I am extremely passionate about beer. I am a home brewer and one of these days, I hope to open my own brewery and sell my beer.
In addition, I play a lot of string instruments. Mainly the guitar, banjo, and violin.
I'm not conservative, nor am I progressive. I'm a centrist.
I post a lot of assorted and varied things. Including a lot of tabletop gaming, especially Warhammer 40,000 (mainly the wargame, but also the WH40K RP games) and Dungeons & Dragons.
Venerate the immortal Emperor.

the gaming industry annoys me a lot because it has the potential to be the most creative and diverse outlet we have but like. nah. we got cod. and fifa. 0 female leading characters. the exact same slightly rough looking, dark haired, middle aged white dude.. 3/10
But at least you can
"0 female leading characters"
So I guess OP doesn’t play videogames at all then.
A friend and I regularly hang out in the student lounge, and today we were talking about why we hang out here even though we hate it.
It’s a zoo. You fucking never know what manner of things you’ll witness or overhear. It’s the thrill of it, these people, they do things that constantly confound.
For example, our conversation was constantly interrupted this morning as on the couch across from he and I was a couple affectionately engaging in pet-play. It was super fetishy and almost sexual. She was wearing cat ears, and was on her knees on the couch, he was dangling a toy mouse in the air and she was pawing at it. She was nuzzling him and stuff.
It was really weird to be doing in the student lounge of a university, in public. Like save that for the bedroom, jeez.
We were trying to have a conversation about immersion in video games and I trailed off slowly mid sentence and said in a lower voice “do you fucking see what I see dude?” and he goes “yep, it’s fucking strange, just keep talking, pretend it’s not there…”
By far the most creepy public display of affection I ever saw.
They kept at it for like a whole hour… Shit was fucked.
I mean, dude’s obviously getting laid, but shit man… in public?? Surely there is a time and a place.
I procrastinate so bad though, it’s beyond fucking chronic.
I’ve seen a couple of counsellors about it, and they’ve all given me the same kinda “solutions” to the problem which never work for me.
The counsellor I’ve been seeing at uni though, he reckons he had a similar, if not, the same, problem as I have now. He told me when I get given a task to do, I should tell myself to work on it for “just 5 minutes.”
Most people say “Try and do a solid hour” or something like that, but this counsellor, he knows that doesn’t work. He said “just do 5 minutes.” so I put a sticker on the frame of my computer monitor, it says “just 5 minutes” so everytime I think like “holy fuck I got that thing I gotta do, meh I’ll play some video games first and then I’ll do it” I see that sticker and it says ‘Just 5 minutes’ so instead I’m like “fuck it, whatever, I’ll put a 5 minute timer on my phone and do this thing I have to do”
and then I end up doing it for like 10 minutes which turns into 20, which turns into an hour and before I know it I’ve actually done some work for once and I feel like I can actually function like a normal person for once. It actually fucking works.
I just wish I had of thought of it/been told about it at the start of the year… I probably wouldn’t be in the mess I’m in right now…
Everyone calls themselves procrastinators… but procrastination is actually ruining my fucking life… what do I dooooooooo uuurghhhhhh
Nah, cannon balls are basically metal fists. Those ships are throwing metal fists at you.
Then horses are fists with legs, and bullets are smaller pointed fists, and swords are elongated sharp fists.
Therefore, naval combat is still for pussies because there is no clear strategy that I can see Sun Tzu never taught me about this, fuck your boats I hate them I’m never playing this game again it’s shitty anyway fuck it
