Yeah it's hard to get along with each other on impersonal anonymous textboards

>discussing things is tiring.
True. It can easily turn into arguments or get too serious to be enjoyable. And many ESLs could be left behind ranpha003

>I don't feel like I can really add anything meaningful to the conversation
Many things in your daily life must be new to me!

I don't know what are ordinary cuisines in Europe. Clearly they aren't noodles or rice!
I can't name one single European supermarket, drugstore or bookstore chain

I'm excited to learn your local news, weather, food you ate, insects or flowers you found, what are printed on your T-shirt, which you are an early bird or a night owl....anything!

I still tread carefully posting my schizoid tendencies on my website.

Sometimes I think about making a youtube channel.

I ran across an interesting quote today which clarifies why one would post for posting sake, rather than to spark conversation:

> Don’t write to persuade, write to refine.
> Don’t speak to others, speak to hear yourself.

In this sense, the Daily Post Committee (日常投稿委員会) may be a mistake made by me...

The biggest problem I see with forcing posts on imageboards is that old and worthwhile threads can get bumped out and lost. More an issue with medium sized boards, in large boards it's just inevitable and so not worth worrying about, and in small ones like this tiny place it's very unlikely to be a problem. Though in the most extreme cases I've seen sights get destroyed when a bunch of new users suddenly outnumber the old users and spam threads low effort threads; that site's still up and more active than ever, and boring than ever with everything of worth gone. )-: Then again imageboards are pretty transitory by nature, and simply not the right format for discussion you want to archived forever; so maybe I shouldn't be concerned about this at all. I think the daily post threads that you see often do very well to avoid this issue all together.

Smart post!
¨ No.1791
I suppose one could measure worth in terms of variety, or effort one puts in a post
But realistically imageboards seems to serve two ends:
1. a place to express oneself when one no longer feels comfortable with their identity
2. a way to cultivate identity, or pass the time the same as any novelty machine, e.g. youtube, news, etc.

Nobody needs to feel obligated to make a post!
I myself do a terrible job of controlling my interests or meeting deadlines
We can just set a long-term goal to aim at, like 4 liters of water to drink every day, even if we'll never actually achieve it.

probably for the better... it can be too idyllic and therefore nauseating

Yes, it's a subtle transition the directors take advantage of to get you fully immersed into the story. It starts off innocuous but then you clutch your hands and heart wondering why are you subjugating yourself to the whims of these romcom directors konata002

One author I really like is Thomas Szasz
Because he points out how most of the mental disorder, illnesses and labels are just the new Priest class asserting themselves upon society.
Instead of sin, we have mental illness.
They're convenient markers on general behaviors, certainly -- it's just often these labels become prisons too

Friends in my past who identified too much with having depression, OCD or whatever else, they never get better, they only got worse and believed drugs were the only way out
By accepting the label, if one isn't careful, you also accept your fate/doom

What have you been listening to recently/song that's been on your mind?

I found this rendition album of the Ghibli soundtrack and found the voice angelic.
There's some sort of dignity to be found in it.

Pro tip: did you know that YouTube has a separate interface for music?

YouTube is okay if you're listening to music!!

Can i get some help rendering translucency manually in traditional art.

Like how the value are placed and so on based on the form and placement in the scene

So far i only know that the color will multiply whatever is behind but then the refraction and caustics comes in and reflection makes it all confusing

There are some aesthetics with traditional art that are easier to achieve. Like how in old anime they could achieve very bright looking light easily because it was literal light shining through the glass.

I have never found a pencil brush that actually looked to me like I was taking notes with an actual pencil on paper.
