Long story short, basically one of my coworkers was talking about how she just realized why she had been feeling down a few days earlier. The explanation she brought up was some bullshit about how her zodiac was hiding behind moon or some stupid shit like that. She was very proud with her explanation and I, without realizing it, had my temper reached the point of no return. When I left the office pantry to go back to work, I spontaneously shouted ‘BULLSHIT!’ It was a good thing that most of the people in that pantry thought I was just joking with my ‘antic’ and only a couple realized that I was truly angry back then.
I can’t deny that I’m getting old. I hail from the generation of Gamefaqs and Albino Blacksheep and from an era when we accessed Newgrounds just to play them ‘hentai’ games. Even back then, silly catchphrases and fads (or memes as they now call it) have existed around the internet and many experts can assure you that such things predate the existence of the web, Jesus, and dinosaurs. We all still remember when ‘all your base are belong to us’ was still funny and its tragedy of being beaten to death and finally vanished into obscurity. And I still remember how cakes are always miserable piles of lies and we all used to be an adventurer until we met vision-impaired archers that can only target certain part of our body. Notice that the last few examples are considered ‘newer’ on the net compared to Zero Wings and teh lulz. Yet I found all of them to be amusing even if in the end they all met the tragic end of being overused more than an overpriced Tenga. However there is something (call it meme, fad, trend, or Richard Dawkins if you like) that I just can’t stomach from its conception and that is YOLO.
Okay, so I just spent the past couple of days watching Sunrise’s classic pseudo-magical-girl half-hearted-yuri-paradise My-HiME anime. One lustrum has passed yet I found a long-forgotten waifu material that flew over my mind five years ago since I only just realized it now. She’s Natsuki fucking Kuga, that’s who! She has everything I consider as ideal waifu traits. Long black (blue?) hair, slender body, pair of ideal breasts that is not too humongous yet not as flat as English beer, sporty with attitude, slightly tsundere yet not Kugimiya Rie-level of overkill, and an overall aura of badassness. At the same time I realized this anime has a massive waste of ideal female traits and that also happens to be the same Natsuki fucking Kuga! Five years have passed and it’s just now I realized what has been haunting me in this half decade life of mine (at least concerning this series) and that night mare takes the form of lilies… metaphoric lilies… Yes, I’m talking about them LESBIAAAAAANSSSSS!!!
No phrase can perfectly describe my struggle for higher education than this post title. If one week ago I became all optimistic because I just got accepted by a lab in Japan for Ph.D research, this week fate decided to throw that optimism to the ground and rape it so hard while I watch to the point where said optimism can’t think of anything outside fate’s dick. Basically, I failed to pass the selection for scholarship. It sucks so hard that black hole looks like a nun who vowed to protect her mouth virginity.
The funny thing is the same thing also occurred when I tried to apply to the Netherlands early this year. All went well and got accepted easily to the university but hell breaks loose when I was trying to secure funding. The government realized about this little thing called ‘European debt crisis’ and all of the sudden BAM! No more scholarship program.
So yeah, I have returned to point zero. But you know what they say, negative multiply with negative results in positive. So maybe after all this shit bath I’m going through, I will discover the hidden treasure of sir Poop-a-lot. I still have my chance with scholarship to Australia, Belgium, and the Ersmus Mundus. All of them are considerably as exciting as Japan and definitely more exciting than the Netherlands (except Australia. That place is way more exciting because their monsters are around level 90 or more). It can’t be helped but it is my noble duty to show that it CAN be helped.
