In which I wank the superiority of economics as the best social science · 9:56am June 2nd

I'm bored, so I decided to make a somewhat brief case for economics, namely why it's superior to the other social sciences—sociology, psychology, anthropology, political science, et cetera—by measure of rigour, income, objectivity/accuracy, and applicability. Perhaps I'm biased, but I think I can give pretty good reasons nevertheless.

Spiders n shit · 8:33am May 27th

There’s been an inexplicable increase of spiders in my apartment. In the past 2 days I’ve caught and killed 3 spiders, with the last one being a daddy long legs. The little bastard with its long ass legs was right next to my stove.

Where the literal FUCK are these spiders coming from?!?

Apropos of the Sinners – Update 15 · 7:16pm May 17th

Yeah, so... I don't know when I'm ever going to continue writing this story, let alone complete it. Aside from the fact that the scope of the plot has gotten too big and complex for my own good, the next arc is extremely difficult to pull off and will only work if done right due to how experimental and different it is. And frankly, I don't trust myself one bit to write it well. And I don't have any formal education in writing/storytelling, so it's not as if I know what I'm doing.

Attack on Titan is ruined · 4:07am April 8th

It pains me to say this because Attack on Titan is (or was, I should say) my favourite anime/manga of all time, but holy shit, that final chapter was GOT season 8 levels of bad. In fact it may just be worse.

Random Thoughts · 11:07pm April 1st

In my estimation there are about 4 tiers of fiction writers.

First, there's the writers who aren't good: whether they merely lack talent or experience, or are genuinely and hopelessly terrible, doesn't matter; I group them all together. This is the group that isn't worth reading for any reason whatsoever.

Big new story! · 11:24pm March 20th

I'm seriously considering putting Apropos of the Sinners on an indefinite hiatus, which would be a shame considering I'm already 180k+ words deep into that sucker. Why do I say this? I recently had a rush of inspiration, some 2 days ago, which triggered an insanely awesome idea for a new fic, and now I can't get it out of my head. I really want to write it, mainly because it may just be my best work ever. Of course, that's easy to say; the problem with writing stories is that they're

How everyone should write their characters · 3:24pm February 27th

The following piece of writing advice comes directly from Aaron Ehasz, lead writer of Avatar: The Last Airbender. Just so you know that, this doesn't originate from me. But I thought I'd share it because I agree with it completely.

A:TLA has some pretty great characters, and I'm sure any writer who aspires to create equally great characters within their own works of fiction often wonder how to do it. Luckily, Mr. Ehasz gave us a simple guideline.

I might need to see a therapist · 6:29am January 7th

So... I'm not sure why or how, but I get the feeling that I'm becoming somewhat depressed, and that I might need to see a therapist about it. You know that feeling, when you used to be a kid and had lots of fun playing with toys, but if you tried to play with the same toys as an adult you'd get no enjoyment from it whatsoever? That's my feeling to most things right now. Just can't seem to get happy or animated about anything, even with things that I normally like, such as my favourite foods.

Apropos of the Sinners – Update 14 · 5:43am January 2nd

So I've finally published the first chapter of part 7, and I gotta say, this might just be my masterpiece... until I write something better 6 months later. However, don't expect the next chapter till summer this year (2021). I only wanted to get the first chapter out of the way. I fully intend to write all the chapters of this arc first so that they're all ready when I start publishing them.
