You are a reincarnation of your mother, father, and every relative who has ever come before you. You have no memories, a younger body, and a entirely different time period to live in, but your genes carry a story far beyond recorded history. You are responsible for everything you’ve done, and responsible for nothing. You are a unique being, yet a simple pachinko peg on the game board that is your family history.
In a way, you’ve already lives hundreds of lifespans. Try to learn from yourself.
Every other girl (and the token guy) I know who made the “I’m going to diet” New Year’s Resolution seems to be at their breaking point. Some quotes:
"I’m trying this new diet, but it’s just not working out."
"This diet just makes me really light-headed, so yeah…"
"Fuck this shit."
The irony of it is that NONE of them added any kind of extra fitness into their schedules. I’ve always thought that dieting was secondary to physical activity - it can help a lot, but it’s no substitute for running/biking a few miles every other day. Personally, I find that between my youthful metabolism, self-serving societal double-standard and bone-crushing ego, I can feast through just about anything except holiday dinners and dark lagers and skate by with minimal exercise. However, for people like my grandmother who hold the “you are what you eat” mantra above all else, dieting is the essential component, while exercise is more of a perk.
If you can diet AND exercise for a prolonged period, you will be undoubtedly dropping panties and man-panties everywhere you go. However, if you can only commit to one, a sustained workout session seems a lot more efficient and easier to maintain than a diet. I’m most likely biased because I live off of fruit juices (diabetes can gtfo) and I don’t want to stop, but it still makes the most logical sense to me.
P.S. To my friends: There’s always next year. Dunwurry.

Rise up, dance proudly, warriors who have accepted fate (heaven’s mandate) even if hurt and exhausted burn red, scatter grandly, lives who became stars overcoming time, we’ll brand those names into our hearts, Just Forever
JAMMIN. EVERY. DAY.
"Achieve your mission with all your might.
Despair not till your last breath.
Make your death count.”
P.S. If you listen closely, you can hear where the drums resemble “Zankoku na Tenshi no TEZE” (Thesis of a Cruel Angel), the original Neon Genesis Evangelion opening.
P.P.S. The english translation sounds a little off to me, but roll with it anyway.
What is Beauty? What is Love? What is humanity? And above everything else, what is reality? If you can tolerate gore, depravity, lolita content, and philosophical darkness on par with Elfen Lied, you will likely appreciate Saya no Uta. Saya no Uta is a love story told from two perspectives: the viewpoints of “regular” people, and the viewpoint of Fuminori Sakisaka, a Japanese medical student whose unusual mental condition portrays the world as a festering bile pit filled with monsters and sludge. As the story progresses, Fuminori discovers love, purpose, and fulfillment alongside his companion, Saya, while his former acquaintances sink into madness, lust, and death. The two primary endings leave both the reader and the characters questioning the final outcome, unsure if things truly happened “for the best.”
As with most Japanese media of this nature, you’ll need an open mind and a decent constitution to make it through the first segments. Do that, though, and I think you’ll enjoy the wild - if short - ride that follows.
"Saya no Uta I" and "Saya no Uta II" are both variations of the same haunting melody, but the "Song of Saya" is a ballad about transcendent love and creating life. My semi-obvious theory: regular people hear the "Saya no Uta I/II", the song foretelling their doom, and Fuminori/Saya hear the "Song of Saya," their united hope in a cruel world. Boom.
Heartbreak game fuck around and brought the Bay back.
I found a nice, small studio yesterday. If circumstances work out for me, I may be able to get it for free two days a week . TURFinc 7 and Battle of the Bay are a few months away, so I really need the space. It’s been a long week, but a good one :).
