    So this is it

    My conservative gamer ass is getting ready for a new laptop

    And I know I ranted about it several times already. For young person I got uncommon problem accepting new phone and laptop models and very often new features as well. I still got windows 7 on my current laptop. I hate the idea of using and getting used to win 10, soon probably win 11. I wish I could use win 7 forever. I don't like the idea that I will be using new brand as well because I'm untrustful of brands I never used before. There's also AMD processor and I only ever used Intel. I did several hours research on it, reviews, comparison videos, benchmarks etc. just to make sure I will not regret the choice and still I feel so unsure and nervous.

    Then I talk to other people and it's like wow. It's just me. Just me being weird again, having such strange problems. Everyone seems so accepting and welcoming when it comes to technology and I just don't get it. Like I wish I could be you? I understand it's handicap at some point because it's expected of my generation to be obsessed with technology and love and accept new technology and I'm such a grumpy grandma in this matter.

    Then again I remember my cousin, only few years older than me, who works in IT and yet his biggest love are old pixel games. His approach to new technologies is very similar to mine. So maybe there is few of us after all.

    #rant #lmao first world problems #somehow i got used to my phone that is also very different from my old one #i mean 'got used to' #would you believe if i told you numeral keyboard on laptop is considered special extra feature now lol #and im sitting here like...why.... #why are we getting rid of numeral keyboards...i need them the fuck #luckily my new laptop has numeral keyboard #i just dont get the...trends? both in phones and laptops? #theyre getting rid of stuff i always considered kinda important y'know #or maybehbe its just me #maybe people didnt even notice laptops are slowly getting rid of numeral keyboards #jeez #im also sad because there will be tech shortage because of graphic cards and chips #that means shit will get expensive #i looked into the parameters of cheaper laptops and 'middle class' laptops to compare how it changed from 2016 #and you really pay more for the 'average gaming laptop' than few years ago when it eas cheaper #i wonder what will be the cost of what i consider middle class gaming laptop in another few years #maybe it will be the cost of new luxurious motorbike or trip to maldives lol #yeah im kinda lost in thoughts since im interested in tech which is ridiculous since im also tech conservative person #but i wonder how things will change and if gaming eill be a hobby for a few #and most will have to stuck to older games or those simple ones #or it will be normal to live in debts so people could afford middle class gaming laptop #i mean there already are people going into debts because of new phones so.... #im very bitter about the graphic card shortage since its because of cryptocurrency and seeing people supporting it... #its like digging your own grave once you wanna buy new phone or laptop

    it's been a while since i yelled about zelda au but i have been Thinking about the ending

    #i.e. what yusuf and nicolo do After #which is. namely. yusuf does not rule hyrule #for reasons involving his niece who survives the calamity and is still alive but very old 100 years later #the royal family of hyrule therefore is still alive! they're still ruling hyrule! #his niece (layla) offers him the throne but he refuses it bc he never really wanted it in the first place #what he and nicolo do instead is they go and they build themselves a house (i like to think it's in the flower field by the royal ancient #tech lab. if you know where that is) #maybe they get some goats or cuccos or horses. and nicolo looks after them. and yusuf gets to just do his research. and they're Happy #this may or may not be influenced by the fact that i have been rereading the chronicles of prydain recently and #the underlying theme throughout all the books is the desire to go home at the end of the journey + 'there is more honor in a field well #plowed than a field steeped in blood' and i could talk about this for hours but that's not the point #the POINT is getting to rest and heal when the journey is over! nicolo has had enough adventure for a lifetime and yusuf has been trapped #for one hundred years! they deserve a little farm with a flower garden! #neon has thoughts #the zelda au which lives only in my head #i don't know what the champions will do! but thats a problem for future neon

    what kind of horror movies do u think the mercs would like

    #text #I think spy would be inclined to ~artistic~ horror films #scout likes shitty slashers especially meta ones like scream #sniper really likes alien invasion films and demo likes supernatural horror #I think medic would like saw or other gorey horror movies. he points out errors. #'oh if you actually did that the blood wouldve sprayed much further than that!' 'how do you know that. how do you know that. HOW-' #engie likes horror comedy and horror sci-fi. like medic he points out/laughs at errors but when it comes to tech stuff #(based on ye old invasion update trailer) #soldier just watches actually war documentaries. #I think heavy's got the same taste as spy with horror and likes the more artistic films with a message to them #pyro is unbothered by gore and'll watch any horror movie if asked but tends to prefer the lighter movies with happier endings

    dionysos of the theatre is technical, watchful, moving like a machine, stepping in rhythm with the music and noise as he slinks about backstage. he is the arms of the clock by which the production moves, shifting cast and crew into motion while he watches with sparkling, catlike eyes. he is in every actor, yes, releasing them from the bonds of their everyday lives, but he also burns within the stage hands, the production crew, the lights, the sound, the set, the very stage itself. he straightens the back of the stage manager and soothes the stage-fright of new actors. he's the jump of nerves when someone gets their cue and the all-encompassing hush of lights fading to black. he opens his arms wide and beckons you into his wings, but he just as readily pushes you back into the light when your turn has come. he knows every cue before it comes. he is the ticking pulse.

    Family Dived over Covid vaccine.

    To vaccinate or not to vaccinate seems to be the question. With approximately fifty-seven percent of America (as of today) vaccinated, the rest are teetering on this decision. Families seem to be losing ground as the divide grows deeper. I feel that society is too critical of unvaccinated people. I believe it’s about respect; we are all individuals and have our minds. I’m not saying the…

    It’s that kind of day!

    This Sums It Up I know you can relate; it’s the kind of day when you want to climb back into bed and pull the covers up over your head nice and tight. Things that are bothering you would typically roll off your shoulders, and your day would go on. Not today, the puppy is crying; she is ball obsessed , and the ball has rolled under the sidebar. All she can think about is getting that freaking…
