  • So in case you missed it, we in the United States are fucked.

    Welp. It was nice not being suicidal while it lasted. But at least I finally feel something, even if that "something" is gut-wrenching dread.

    I’m not sure what’s going on, but we’re here for you, Peaches. :kokone_lili:
    Things might seem bad now, but they’ll get better. I’m not good with words, but please… whatever’s going on, don’t let it get the best of you. There’s a lot of people out there who really love and care about you and even if things seem bad now, they’ll start looking up. Even if you have to “fake it until you make it”.
    Sorry, I’m not the best with words, but I hope I helped even just a little bit. :akasakiminato_lili:

    As Kazumimi said, and also don't leave your life behind. You have a wonderful girlfriend, you collected so many amazing Vocaloids, SynthV loids, and others, and you got yourself a job. There is always bad stuff happening but just as much as good things happen. Drink some water and think about all the thinks you love. For tonight, don't look at the news or look for any negative stuff. :kiyoterunatural_lili:

    I've been talking to Peachy! Things are much better now and she's gonna take it easy today! Thank you guys for support :akasakiminato_lili:
    I had to make a fairly long drive last night and today, so I decided I'd try combating my newfound passionlessness by popping We Are Not Your Kind into the CD player, because I've never NOT been thrust into a state of intense emotion when listening to it.

    Except, this time, I wasn't. In the three listen-throughs I got of it, all I gained was a half-assed desire to cover A Liar's Funeral with Meiko English. I felt nothing. It was just... just music, there to keep my mind from wandering too far while driving.

    The hell's going on? Why don't I feel anything? I'm back on my meds and I have a loving and supportive girlfriend, plus things are going well at work. So why can't I feel?
    I tried signing up for DearStage's newsletter to figure out exactly how long their Summer Sale is going on for... so far I've only gotten the confirmation email, and it's been a few hours. Either way, Rion's V4 is still half-off, so if you're wanting her this will be a great time!

    God, I haven't had her long but I already love her so much~

    She still has a starter pack?

    Not to my knowledge... did she ever have one? I don’t remember her having one, but V4 was already retired when I gained an interest in her, so I don’t know for sure.

    Ive looked up info on this and Rions V4 did not have a starter pack, Nemus was the one who was more advertised in the V4 era by their company and she was the one who recieved starter. However V3 Rion did have a V3 starter.
    Nngh. I wanna make a cover for Iroha's anniversary, but I'm drawing blanks. A handmade VSQx would be better than a prefabricated one, but all the ideas I had have fallen through, and the only other idea I have is Eazy Dance, and there's no way I can balance two collabs and 39 hours a week while also tuning a Mitchie M cover.

    I haven't felt much passion for much of anything late. I don't feel anything but tired. It's wearing me down.
    Binx's bald ankle is starting to grow back its fur. It's bittersweet: it's a sign that his sickness is far behind us and he's healthier than ever, but I love how dorky he looks with a shaved ankle. Like he's wearing a prosthetic, or a furred boot.

    I'll post something relevant soon I swear
    I’m alive!! Kind of. The extra hours I’ve been putting in at work are finally paying off: I’m finally receiving formal Copy and Print training, and the goal is to have me certified by the end of the week. Once I’m certified, I’ll be a print shop worker rather than a cashier, which comes with a snazzy new title and a raise!

    Which is to say, I’ve been focusing all of my energy on that... I might be quiet for a while.

    Yes I know there's a lot more than three Petes, but I group them by 1.) OG blue-eyed Pete, 2.) his grandson, brown-eyed Mineral Town Pete (the one who is Gay™), and 3.) any Pete that isn't directly related to the two (the GB/DS Petes). 64 Pete falls into sort of a mid-point between 2 and 3, as he's not Mineral Town Pete but directly inspired him, making him too important to drop into the third category.

    ...this one can stay, Patuk, if only because her V4 hair does look like worms.

    that reminds me of a youtube comment i read on a non-vocaloid specific youtube channel talking about Project Diva. Someone said, "the pink haired chick... her hair looks like i could eat it"
    If ever I make a status update about loving, admiring, or eating mud, please rest assured, it's not me. It was wrought by the hands of The Evil One, She, the Bringer of Death, Destruction, and Soft Internet Kisses.

    @patuk Thank you for five months of love and support. Here's to the next five, and the next five after that, on and on!

    YYYYEEEESSSSSSS and in no time it will be 5 years hehe~ I love you :kokone_lili: :kokone_lili: :meiko_ani_lili:thank you for being here for me!
    Ever since bringing Binx home from the vet, he's been clingier than ever. He greets me at the door when I get home from work, he follows me everywhere, he's either in my lap, on the bed, or in my room whenever I'm in here... I'm not sure what's up, honestly. I was convinced he'd hate me for a while for 1.) dropping him off with strangers who shoved needles and IVs in his veins, odd liquids down his throat, and water up his butt, and 2.) continuing to shove said foul-tasting liquids down his throat twice a day in the week following his glorious return.

    But he hasn't. When I gave him his meds, he'd run and hide and gag for a few minutes, then he'd come seek me out, meow at me, and make himself comfortable. And that's something that's continued to this very moment.

    Part of me wants to think he knows I did what I did to save his life, and this is his way of thanking me. Though he IS a cat, so I can't rule out the possibility that he's lulling me into a false sense of security so he can murder me in my sleep and then use my corpse as a litter box in retaliation for what he went through.
    Oh my, who might that cutie in pink be~?

    Hnnnnn... I was outbid on that Kaito and Meiko auction, and I'm reeeeaaaaally in the market for Kaito V1. Should anyone happen to see him up for grabs, please let me know!!

    If you cannot find any on Mercari or any other sites, I recommend buying him from Crypton. It will be pricier, but you will be guaranteed to get him.

    I'm definitely willing, once I have the funds. The problem is, it might be a while before I have the necessary funds and still be able to afford food, gas, and rent (thank you Binx, very good time to rack up a vet bill), so until then, I'll be optimistic and on the lookout!
    I decided to go ahead and update my computer, since it was being slow. Figured I’d just hook it up to the charger, take a shower, then come back to a freshly updated computer!

    It was at 2% when I came back. And now, after half an hour, it’s at 4%.

    It’s gonna start over if I restart it.

    I usually love Windows, but my GOD the updates...

    According to Google, the update takes between 4 and 6 hours. I don’t HAVE 4-6 hours. I need to be in BED by then.

    Whyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    I hate that kind of stuff. As much as I love using a computer, I hate updates.

    What kind of update is it? If it's a feature update (technically a massive upgrade to a new version of Windows 10), it usually takes four to six hours for it to wrap up on my computer because my internet sucks when it comes to downloading the massive thing, plus it needs to check over that it's safe to install once it's done. With cumulative updates, it varies - some download and install quickly, others take around an hour because again, crappy internet.
    Rion is in Memphis, yet I’m being told she’ll be at my front door by tomorrow morning.

    Must... not get hopes up. Memphis is many hours away. 😅

    Damn, and it was cheaper than DHL! Might start using White Rabbit as my default proxy from now on.

    Yeah I love them so much! The only bad part is it takes them a bit to buy your product so if its something from Mercari that isn't on buyee you probs want to use someone else ;-;

    Yeah, I noticed that... it took two weeks between placing my order and her actually being shipped out. Still, for non-urgent purchases, it’s amazing!
    You can literally tell someone your mother will die if she contracts COVID (and she will, she has no immune system) and they’ll still tell you COVID is a hoax and masks make you a sheep.

    Knowing I can’t get away with insulting a customer directly to their face, I’ve developed the habit of adjusting my glasses instead. With my middle finger.

    It almost makes me feel better.
