I miss things

Maybe the March rain has gotten to me… but I’ve been missing things. Things that were me. Things that have defined me. It’s strange to think about how much I have changed in the course of 5 years. Many of my friends say I’m still the same, but when I look at my past self I see a completely different person. I remember how I used to think, how I used to see people and that’s not how I am now. Was this the reason people used to call me “so innocent”? I sure envy my past self. But let’s be real here, we’re all bound to meet with something like this one day, right?

At least writing on Hoshiru and my alone time during my commute to work and back has given me some time to reflect upon myself. It makes me happy to know that one that that hasn’t change is my love for writing about my feelings on Hoshiru. It’s a very important place for me to watch myself change and grow. Also, a place to go to if I ever forgotten what it was like to be 18, 20, 23 or 25. It’s almost Hoshiru’s 10 year anniversary, can you believe that?

Anyways, I don’t knowwhere I’m going for with this post… I just feel the need to update something before it gets too deep into March. I’ve been obsessed with 3DS games and browsing steam. That’s all you need to know.


The Seattle Snow

I haven’t seen it snowing this often in the Greater Seattle area in years! I think the last time I saw it snowing this much was when I still went to the UW. Most likely some time in the early 2010’s. When I woke up this morning and check the weather report, I saw that it’ll be snowrain for my morning commute. I got ready for work, grab my hooded coat, my umbrella and walked out the door. As I open the door I saw whiteness gracefully falling from the sky and slowly sticking on the the ground. I thought to myself, “This is definitely not snowrain” as I walked to the bus stop. the snow wasn’t so bad on my way to the bus stop, but while I was waiting at the stop with my umbrella in my hand, the snow piled up more and more- quickest I’ve seen ever in my life. Within less than 20 minutes, the streets were covered in inch of snow.

As the snow kept piling over my umbrella, I kept debating whether I should stay or go. So I made a gamble, if the bus doesn’t come in the next 30 minutes, I’ll stay home. But the bus came, so on my way to work I go. The ride to work wasn’t that bad. Only unusual thing was getting stuck at the bottom of a hill in Juanita but our bus driver was competent enough to get us through it quickly. I got to work safely with only about 15 minute delay.

My way home on the other hand was much chaotic than expected. Not only that there’s the surprise snow situation going, some gas truck flipped over on some part of I-5 which caused blockage on both sides. I left work at 4:30 and met with nothing but full express buses. I thought I was being smart by walking to University Street Station but that place was jammed pack as well. I ended up walking all the way to International District and took the bus around 640 and ended home late 7 o’clock. Funniest part of this all is that I ran into my brother on the same bus home. We didn’t notice each other til we got closer to home and everyone left the bus. We both left work the same time and got home the same time.

University Street Station at 6:00 PM

Seattle is a funny city. We always expect the unexpected yet we’re not prepared for it.

Hi everyone! The other day I found out that one of the girls in our discord also plays animal crossing. Yay! so we decided to do down visits. It was fun! While she was happy to have someone to play ACNL with, I was too. there’s not much to say but here are a few pictures of me visiting her town.

She’s a time traveler! Very brave. I’m too scared to time travel because I just think it gets freaky and I personally like the real time play. It makes me look forward to things the next morning. My town does progresses very slowly though. I actually want to a second game so I can do a bell boom town. Maybe I’ll time travel on that one.. Just maybe haha.

1000 PP!

As of today I’ve officially reached 1000 PP on osu! Woop Woop. I wish Isabelle (from ACNL) would give me some pops in my pocket, hehe.

1000 PP feels great. Now 2000 PP is going to be the real challenge. I’ve been browsing around other osu player profiles who are in the 1000+ PP range to see what maps they have in their top 100 PP list and… I’m having a hard time beating them. My current issue lies in streaming and hitting fast notes. I’m blaming it on my keyboard, the Blackwidow Chroma Stealth Edition. Because it is using the Razer Orange switches, the keys are fairly heavy and does not feel swift enough to do streams or even quick jumps. So here is what I did instead of buying a whole new keyboard: I bought a mini two button keypad with Cherry MX Red switches. We’ll see how this goes.

There are times when I feel like I’m getting good at osu. And other times when I feel like I’m bottom tier player. What really matters though if I enjoy playing the game, which I do! Rome was not build in one day so I should be happy I’ve reach a milestone of 1000 PP. It might not be anything special to the osu community, but what matters most is that it means something to me.

Current Osu PP: 1027 …. 2000 PP here I come!
