This stuff is REALLY WEIRD. Not sure if it actually smells like orange blossoms, but it’s not bad.

Randomly found these again today, I’d like to take them again sometime since we’ve styled Saki’s wig better.
Maybe I should cut these up and leave them for you to find, Yosuke-kun.

nappotuna replied to your post: “MAYBE I’M BEING AN ASSHOLE but I very, very sincerely doubt Rise and…”:
how would rise even work as a playable character though??? sing, dance and analyze her way to victory~☆

I don’t even know??

and like seriously, if someone at Atlus had done a design for older Ken as a playable character, he’d be announced by now, they are pretty brilliant marketers and wouldn’t hide something like that.  Game companies have a super hard time keeping that kind of thing a secret these days, but it’s probably just that the copy writer at BB googled Persona to come up with something.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a cameo appearance a la Fuuka, but I very sincerely doubt he’s playable, as much as I also wish this were true.

MAYBE I’M BEING AN ASSHOLE but I very, very sincerely doubt Rise and Ken are playable in P4U2??  I’m not saying I wouldn’t love it if they were, but are people really taking something Best Buy said in their description that seriously??  I’d like to be optimistic, but c’mon you guys.

Anonymous sent: I made a mistake a while back and it hurt a lot of people. I try to move past it, but I continually catch myself making the same mistakes and fear that I'm just a bad person that will never be able to be forgiven.

I feel like I should be wearing my Souji costume while I answer all of these…

But hey Anon, I’ll be real with you: 1, I can’t give you great advice on this without details since I’m not sure what level or kind of mistake this is; and 2, I’m not great at being anything but honest with people.  If honesty isn’t what you need right now, that’s cool and I completely understand, but…

All that said, I think you need to sit down and take a long look at yourself.  If you’re repeating the same mistake, what can you do to fix it?  If it’s a behavior you can’t always help, try and come up with a root cause.  For example, I’ve caught myself lashing out at people in the past, but eventually realized a lot of it was out of my own insecurities (volatile teenage hormones + high school bullshit is not a good combo), and so I learned to work on myself rather than trying to accuse other people of being the problem.  Once you know why you’re doing something, it’s a lot easier to deal with it appropriately.  Is it something that needs an outside party?  It it something that therapy could help with?  Is there some kind of routine or thinking pattern you can set up for yourself that’ll help you keep yourself from repeating the same mistake?

This all comes with a huge caveat, though: Don’t think of yourself as a bad person.  Think of yourself as someone who did something bad, who made—as you phrased it—a mistake.  This isn’t just me trying to boost your self-esteem, either.  This step is important, because it’s when you fall into a pattern of just thinking of yourself as helpless and irredeemable, it becomes an easy excuse to act out and continue doing shitty things, or fall into a hole of self-pity that is difficult to emerge from.  Don’t think of yourself as stupid, unforgivable, or bad, because it’s much more admirable to be someone who fucked up and is doing their best to fix it.

Did you apologize to the people you hurt?  If not, you absolutely should.  But, if they accept your apology, you should couple it with all the above.  Apologies are empty if there’s no action to change behind it.  I believe you want to change, but finding the way to do that is entirely in your hands.

The last thing is this: sometimes you fuck up badly enough that people don’t want to forgive you.  I’m admittedly someone who is very bothered when I can’t stay on someone’s good graces, so I understand that this part is tough, but sometimes it’s easier to learn from your mistakes and move on, make some new friends, and work on yourself from there.  People aren’t obligated to accept your apology, even if you mean it sincerely.  Everyone has some things they deem unforgivable.  It sucks, especially when it’s people you care about, but trying to force the issue just upsets everyone.  But even if you make the same mistake a few times, as long as you show an effort and a willingness to fix it, you’ll find a good group.  Everyone makes mistakes, and I think most people are aware of that.

Sorry for the long response, Anon.  I hope it helps, even a little, and I’m sorry I can’t be more specific.

Sometimes I look up and realize my life is kind if surreal. (Guess who’s filming for the askblog…)

Anonymous sent: I've been trying to learn japanese for a year and a half now, but i've been falling behind due to the usual (work, family, etc.). Do you have and tips on how I can get back up on my feet?

I’m gonna be straight with you here, Anon, self-study is super difficult for me to do, which is why I went to school and studied it for about 7-8 years instead.  The only things I can suggest would be:

  • Use it wherever you feasibly can; if you have any friends who speak it, practice with them over skype or something.
  • There’s a few apps for smartphones that are helpful, I haven’t used many of them myself but do some googling and you’ll probably find some.   (I know there was at least one add-on for either Firefox or Chrome that would turn the first letter of a word into the associated kanji, which could potentially be helpful but also has it flaws since Japanese can’t often translate 100% directly into English.)
  • Set yourself up with as strict of a schedule as you can and stick to it.  Being in school helped a lot because it forced me to be consistent with when I studied.
  • Turn off subtitles when you’re watching stuff or read some basic books in the original language; but always remember that most of the Japanese used in anime isn’t what you’d use in everyday, polite speech.
  • If you can’t make a schedule, remove yourself from all other distractions when you have time to study.  Go to a local coffee shop or something, turn off or silence your phone, and bring any books or materials you have to study with.  I find that taking myself away from distractions or places where I’m comfortable or have other obligations within my line of sight helps my productivity a lot.  (A lot of my translations I did at a local Starbucks, where I couldn’t look up and see unfinished costumes or things I should clean, etc etc.)

Good luck, Anon!
