British HumourToday, I wrote out a post of about 1,000 words or so about why people get offended by British humour, but shouldn't. I then deleted it. Why?British Humour3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because I realised that in talking about the nature of British humour, and why we're able to happily joke about things like celebrity deaths, racism, sexism, tragedies like 9/11, wars etc. ... I'd end up having people getting upset because I've offended them.
I've saved myself the hassle of this by deleting the post.
All I will say is that, if you can't handle Shock Humour, then you should always be wary of watching any form of British comedy. It's part of our comedic culture.
Otherwise, just accept that you might be offended, and when you are....stop reading, close the video, or change the channel. It's that easy.
"Being offended is part of being in the real world."

Once homeless Miami man earns a Masters degree
After several arrests, drug addiction and being homeless, a Miami man has overcome the odds to graduate from FIU with a Master's degree in social work.
Out of thousands of graduates, only one -- 50-year-old Aaron Alvin Sr. -- got a standing ovation at Tuesday night's graduation ceremony.
"I wanted to make sure I was in a position to help people and so I went ahead and got my Master's," Alvin said. "I just continued to pursue something that was bigger and better and ended up here."
Alvin was arrested several times for drugs, grand theft auto, and domestic violence. He was also homeless for a time.
He said he never,

If you haven't watched it yet, PLEASE do. Please take the time to really watch it, and try and empathise with these young people. Imagine if it were you, a sibling, a friend.... This man must be stopped.
Now, there have been criticisms not of the need to stop Kony, but of the Invisible Children organisation who have led this campaign. These criticisms primarily regard the organisations finances and military support. You can read these concerns here:
In the interests of fair representation, I today saw a response from the Invisible Children organisation, linked in a BBC article.

Gettin' a Pee Cee 8DSo, a friend of mine has fabulously offered to build me a PC, which'll be much better than buying one pre-made from a PC store.Gettin' a Pee Cee 8D4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once that's done, I'll actually be able to record gameplay (something which my laptop fails at) and will finally be able to get some Let's Plays! of me failing at various video games done. That, and doing Livestreams will be much easier too, as my laptop lags somewhat when it attempts that.
So yeah. Once PC is acquired, I'll be able to finally get stuff uploaded to TouchMyKeyblade. If I can think of anything else random to get up before then that my laptop can handle (bearing in mind that my laptop also isn't too fond of Movie Maker XD) then I'll do dat, too.
...That is all 8D

He shoves me, I bite him, we trip each other, etc. It's probably pretty scary for the other customers.
But I won today.
Adventure of Link (grey) and my second copy of Ocarina of Time (gold). (For those counting that makes 6 copies of OoT total, bwahahahaha)
Victory is sweet.
P.S. - Having a boyfriend who collects the same things as you sounds awesome but it's actually kind of exhausting.

This is one year old journal, but I have great news - I just read that in local ZOO, baby arctic wolves were born again!
They still stay in a burrow, but as soon as they get older and leave the den, I will do my best to bring you some photos
Photos in this journal were taken in 2011
Here come the first photos of baby arctic wolves, who were born in ZOO Brno this year
The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness

Thanks for drawing asuna!
Thank you guys so much. Today was the day i first had a drawing idea. I was sitting at home, and I was listing to the Happy song. And i had a idea, a cat. With red eyes. I had just watched one of my favorite animes, Negima, and Asuna was born. Yet she was not always orange, she was yellow.
Oh, and thank you for the others, who never sent me a note or link, I just was searching through my stuff and found these wonderful pics. Sorry for the late reply. I know you didn't post them today. These were from a long time ago.
