I WASN'T A DIEHARD FAN OF MORTAL KOMBAT FOR...THIS.

 

I'm just really pissed. "It's a fighting game, chill"
THEN WHY INCLUDE LORE IF YOU SUCK AT IT?! 

And of course, include a villain who just says "balance uwu"...an overused plot. 

I'd prefer a Raiden who goes insane and wants to yeet through time
also, Frost should have been a good guy

 

WASTED PLOTENTIAL FFS

Japanese celebrate Christmas, Japanese and Halloween. Christmas has completely lost its purpose thanks to American tv shows and movies like Home Alone. "Who gives a fuck about Jesus, let's buy some presents and decorate our house nice and shiny". I'm an orthodox Christian and all of this was appropriated by westerners, all we should do is eat non animal based food on Christmas eve and set leaves and small branches of Yule tree on fire. Materialism shouldn't be involved but who can resist the shiny Christmas lights and huge sales. 

 

I’m not an Orthodox Christian, but I empathize tremendously. I’m a Catholic, and Christmas has become my favorite holiday (I went thru a period in high school where I doubted my faith, and religion entirely, and so the season kinda lost its magic; it’s since come back as I’ve had a reconnection with my religion). Our traditions tend to be pretty Western (I’m a second/third generation American, depending on your definition, so it’s become ingrained in our fam), but at the root of it is the celebration of Christ. We go to Church on Christmas Eve, have a little nativity under the tree, we focus on family—yeah, there’s gift giving and Christmas decor, but I still feel like it’s just a grand celebration because Christ was born—a holiday to focus on God and family, on togetherness. 
 

That’s why it really bugs me how commercialized, and even secularized Christmas has become. I have no problem with people of other religions taking part in the celebration—I think it’s great, and I’d imagine that that’s a huge part of Christmas, bringing people together in the name of Christ, even if they don’t necessarily believe it (kinda like how if one of my friends invited me to partake in Ramadan or another Islamic holiday, or Jewish or any other religious celebration—it’s not my faith, but I can respect the religious significance and appreciate the meaning behind it). But to celebrate Christmas without any hint of the religious aspect—it bothers me. Like do what you want, but don’t call it Christmas—it’s not. Christmas at its Core is a Christian tradition about God and Jesus; if you want to have a tree, to give presents and decorate and lose your minds with commercialism, cool, but without religion it isn’t Christmas. Like—uGH, sorry it’s hard to explain in words but stop trying to remove religion from Christmas, that’s literally the root of the damn holiday; if you wanna do your own thing call it Yule, or a Winter celebration or whatever, just don’t pretend you celebrate Christmas and ignore the main purpose of the holiday.

the date was chosen to coincide with pagan festivals, which implies to me that christians wanted it to be more widely celebrated? i actually read (ok well skimmed) the wiki page, and it's interesting how contentious christmas used to be. at this point it's more of a cultural thing than a religious one for most people, myself included. i'm not a huge fan of christmas but it's nice to get together with family and stuff. not disagreeing with you, i'm not christian so i don't have much of an opinion about it. it's just interesting to hear something different compared to the "war on christmas" stuff

For one, I appreciate your response—normally when I bring this up IRL, I get shut down bc ppl chalk it up to “war in Christmas” nonsense. Second, I admit what I know of Christmas’s ties to pagan festivals is a bit limited—IIRC, it supposedly drew heavily in its celebratory traditions from the pagan holiday/festival of Yule, though to what extent I don’t know. I may take a look at that wiki article just out of curiosity ^_^
 

I mean again, as a Christian I love the idea of people sharing in a holiday that we hold dear, but to appropriate it to the point it loses the central point entirely is hurtful. I think ppl go a bit overboard with the war on Christmas (on both sides; some ppl argue about it just to be annoying dicks, but others act way too overly sensitive—saying “Merry Christmas” isn’t going to kill anyone, when it’s literally Christmas Eve lol). However, when people try to celebrate all aspects of Christmas (and not just a winter celebration or whatever) just minus the religious part, it’s a bit aggravating.

 

also side note; I also don’t see the harm in saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” or anything else. Let different groups celebrate their holidays with pride—don’t broad brush or erase them with “Happy Holidays” or (I hate this one lol ) “Seasons Greetings”. It feels cold and indifferent to me.

I think I need a mentor. I'm pretty sure SAD is possibly affecting me right now, and being alone in a foreign country during the holiday season isn't super fun (next year I plan to go back to South Korea for Christmas concerts, and maybe to Thailand). But I'm realizing I just really want someone who can be a bit of a guide or something to me. I'm very happy with where I am in my life but I feel like I haven't been able to grow as much as a person as I've wanted to. This has held me back a lot, I haven't been able to learn Japanese as much as I'm capable of (my listening and reading has improved a shit ton but my speaking is so poor). I struggle a lot with self confidence, which affects my job. Weirdly, despite that, my kids are super understanding, idk maybe it makes me seem more relatable to them. I have a lot of kids who definitely look up to me and love me, and y'know I want to be more of the person I want to be so that I can be a better role model to them. I just wanna be a better "me" period. 

This is probably more built-up frustration at myself than anything. Because I know I've grown exponentially as a person in the past year but that change hasn't been enough for me. I'd just really like someone I can talk to. My ex was a life coach and was big on people having mentors, which always turned me off to the idea (he never suggested this to me, probably because he was afraid if he did that I'd leave him if someone mentored me).

lmao I feel like I'm always complaining about myself here but I just feel stuck. Although I'm glad I feel the need to keep developing myself.

i'm going through one of those slumps where i can't be online because seeing everyone's facetuned/meitu'd/photoshopped faces and bodies makes me really insecure. 

i lost a lot of fat recently due to healthy lifestyle changes, and everyone always compliments me and says i look good. but whenever i strip for a shower i just look in the mirror and see the same fat body i used to have. i started wearing heavy layers (even before it got cold) to hide my body. and it's gotten to the point where i wear binders because looking at my breasts (which remained large despite me losing weight) make me feel incredibly... i don't know. dysmporphic? i look at old pictures where i was flat and skinny and i feel so envious of my past self. it makes me almost want to get top surgery despite the fact i'm not trans. i know that's a big leap and people will tell me that i should just get breast reduction, but i honestly just hate my breasts now and want them gone. 

i feel like this is the worst slump i've been in. i think everyone should strive to be healthier, and no one should give up on losing weight (only if they need to of course). but i feel like a discussion needs to be had about the mental issues that come with it. i'm so fucking unhappy with my body and looking at instagram makes me want to die. i certainly wasn't any better when i was chubby, but at least when i was chubby i could tell myself 'you can go back. you can eat healthy and exercise. this isn't you'. but now that i'm small again i have no way to fix how i feel. it's just my brain telling me i'm ugly and that my body is wrong.

My new year resolution is to read at least two books a month; however, I need a list of books to read. Does anyone have any suggestions? I know this is a rant thread but I didn't know where to ask. I used to be an avid reader of YA romance that involved paranormal such as Twilight and my ultimate favorites Paranormalcy and the Wings series but I want something different. Still in the fiction zone, of course, but...maybe a different genre/plot/etc will be a lot better than when I was 12 and drooling over shape shifting pretty boys.

this is the opposite of YA but I highly recommend the picture of dorian grey by Oscar Wilde. I don’t know why but I’m obsessed with that book and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I finished it a month ago. It’s honestly a piece of art imo which is what Oscar Wilde intended it to be. It honestly changed my perspective in a lot of ways. It was written in the late 19th century but it’s characters are still very relatable

I love that book !! My dog iis actually named aafter Sibyl. And I think more gothic literature will best suit me currently. The idea of reading YA really makes me cringe haha nothing wrong with it but it most definitely isn't for me anymore

Jeffree Star needs his ass beat, badly, and nothing else will be good enough, considering the shit he does to people and gets away with.

I don't care what anybody says, there are just some people who will never learn until they get a good punch in the fucking nose.

I really hate when my 2 alchohol coworkers practically beg me for rides to the liquor store and get so passive aggressive when i say no. 

You are not my friends, I'm not obligated to be your personal uber so you can feed your habits you are in denial about. You buy 2 24 pack cases of beer 4 times a week and drink both in a sitting...you clearly have a problem and i want nothing to do with it.

Die mad.
