I freeze up when people are in the room at the same time as I’m on the computer. I usually end up minimizing everything and just sit there until they leave. And that’s just hanging out on the forum or skype or reading a comic XD
Yeah, I tend to do that too when there are people around. I usually try to be in a position where I see people first. I guess I just want to avoid comments on my internet activities, even if it’s just reading stuff. And if people actively try to look, I usually end up closing the laptop. None of their business, darnit.
Sometimes, I’ll refrain from doing, looking at, or listening to something on the internet out of fear of embarrassing myself… Even though I’m the only one in the room and there’s slim to no chance of interruption and I’ve taken internet privacy into account. And even though 9.8 times out of 10, it’s nothing actually embarrassing, bad, or controversial. And even if it’s something I enjoy.
I mean, c’mon me, that doesn’t even make sense.
It’s always a lovely moment when you want to look up something in a book, you turn to a random page for the first time, and it happens to be on the same page or in the same area as where you wanted the information.
I’ll put on music to listen to while studying, and it never works because I just end up listening to the tune. Even when I’ve heard it many times before, I can’t help but look for nuances in each little thing in the tune and new things that I may have missed and…
I need to remind myself that study music doesn’t work for me.
Now I’m getting flashbacks to my first semester in my first dorm.
The 24/7 loud music and raucous parties nearby, being kept up till 7am some days because of the noise, and being called a bitch for asking people to quiet down so I can sleep.
I have 0 regrets about moving out early.
…Actually, is it possible to have regrets in the negative values?
Now the question is, what kind of drivers ed do people get in Ghibli movies?
They get drivers ed in the first place?
I mean, aside from “turn this on with this, here’s where you steer, and here’s the gas. Oh, and the brakes. I think they’re important for some thing or another, but don’t worry about them.”
Nope, they called it a horse, but was some weird horned thing XD
Ah. I figured it was something like that, but the details are vague to me now.
Oh well. My previous answer stands.
endofdraco asked: Are the horses in Ghibli movies really ever horses?
…Have I ever seen any Ghibli movies with horses? …Did Princess Mononoke have horses in it? (It’s been a while since I’ve seen it.)
In any case, probably not fully. But it never makes them less alive.
