  1. helloooooo! long time no see ^^ OMM: it's always hard to be a book-reader watching book-to-movie adaptations, but the artemis fowl movie kind of upends everything about the story? like book 1 of artemis fowl shows an 12-year-old hunting after myths around the world, kidnapping a fairy (elf), holding that elf for ransom, and earning a huge block of fairy gold in return. and that's just book 1. in the movie trailer, artemis is the typical "chosen one" character, and instead of a criminal mastermind, he's just a kid with spunk. (some reviews called it Spy Kids on a larger budget, and that's pretty fair.) also, instead of casting either a dwarf or CGI-ing an actor in dwarf size, they just decided to make Mulch Diggums "a very large dwarf."
  2. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. It's about a man of IQ 60 who undergoes an experimental treatment to increase his intelligence. However, with increased intelligence comes increased awareness of the cynical world around him--those who laugh at him are not doing so out of friendship, but of mockery. As he reaches genius levels of thought, his predecessor, a now-genius lab mouse by the name of Algernon, starts to go crazy. dun DUN. I'm doing this book no justice with my synopsis, but would recommend looking at some reviews if you're interested! It's a great insight on the human condition (lots of Freud to be found here) from a pretty unique perspective. I really liked it and 11/10 would recommend!
  3. whoaaaa in ten years, I hope to have found a career that I like! and to have spent my 20s doing really cool stuff.
  4. Kitty Paw pretty much sums up my feelings on the subject, but wow. Over the years, I've popped back in a couple of times just to see how the forum's doing. I don't think anybody's particularly proud of their early-teen years, but I had a lot of fun on here. DCW was always a cozy place to be. Like others have said, it's kind of sad to see how slow the traffic is nowadays, but it happens. I just hope our overlord (hello Maurice!) knows that we love our little corner of the world. Servers don't last forever and I'm sure the costs add up, but it's always nice to know my emo Dear Anonymous are currently still preserved on the interwebs! OMM: @Raki just caught up to all the DC manga today. And now she's updating me on spoilers. Goshoooooooooo

  7. an infinite sum of money smaller fish in a big pond or bigger fish in a small pond?
  8. went to school and managed to not fall asleep in any of my classes! not even during the guest lecturer!!
  9. dear anonymous, i've always considered myself a loyal person. i like to think that i make friends based on personalities i admire, and when i find a good friend, a good person, i treasure them. but i hate how i latch on. i'm clingy at times and i need affirmation. i've learned how to not actively seek it, but i still need it even if it's just from time to time. i hate feeling like i'm the one giving more than i am receiving on the blunt end of this unbalanced relationship. but i know how you hate clingy people how you hate sentimental people because we used to laugh at those girls who seem to latch onto you and we'd laugh at how needy they were but i never told you that each and every time, i get scared that, in your eyes, i'm no different from them. but somehow you always know when to tell me i'm important when to spend an afternoon with me when to take me on an adventure, sneaking into secret places where we shouldn't be, sitting across from each other in comfortable silence. at the end of the day i hate how reliant i've become of you. if something makes me crash and burn without hesitation you'd still be the one i'd call. signed, me
  10. Macbeth by Shakespeare Love the monologues and the insight to the twisted human psyche!
  11. @machine not sure if you're still on the python learning track, but I really recommend downloading an IDE first and finding lab-based curriculums that have a concept intro/lab/exercises lesson structure. (tried teaching myself with videos/codingbat/harvardx once; didn't really work out .-.) OMM: Found out that BTS is performing at the AMAs this Sunday and appearing on The Ellen show in a few weeks. Not sure how I feel about that, considering that 1) DNA is far from their best stage performance and 2) Korean idol "etiquette" on TV interviews is really... off-putting? fake? "extra"? Like I still can't get used to it and imagining them sitting next to Ellen is just... aghhhh
  12. spent an hour on spotify yesterday trying to find new songs and ended up with five daily mixes. spotify algorithm probably has no idea what to make of me also! the german exchange kids at the football game last night were like every time we made a touchdown and it gave me life hahaha
