First of all, you need to rearrange your wording. Don't say "I want to write a novel," because then you never will. You must say, "I'm going to write a novel." Also, don't put a goal on the amount of words you want to write. This isn't some kind of quantitative work you should keep track of. You'll find yourself stopping when you're full of great ideas or frustrating yourself because you're stuck at 2,500 and can't seem to think of anything good to write for the next 500. You should say "I'm going to write something each day." That way, it leaves your mind free ready to work without arbitrary goals to feel pressured into achieving. Other than that, good luck!

@JustPlainLucas: You don't look down on them and don't judge them, but just assume they're ignorant and need someone to tell them to improve themselves? Maybe they just don't give a shit what some assholes say about them behind their backs, and don't really care if being thinner is going to add a few months or years to their life expectancy.

I'm not necessarily calling them ignorant. The root of ignorant is "ignore". Hence, ignorance, or willingly dismissing knowledge of something. Think of "ignorance is bliss" as the ostrich syndrome; if it's not there, it doesn't exist. This is the kind of mentality that some overweight people have. They keep saying to themselves, "I don't care if I get diabetes; I'm happy." "I don't care if I develop intestinal problems; I'm happy." "I don't care if I develop heart disease; I'm happy." I have a very hard time that someone purposefully driving themselves into deteriorating health is really truly happy.

As I said before, nothing wrong with wanting other people to improve themselves. It's how societies are built.

Well, there's a problem, though. "But if they're happy, then who cares if they keep making themselves fat?" THEY should care. Ignorance is bliss, yes, but bliss can be deadly. Bliss can reduce life expectancy. Bliss can be hard to enjoy when you have numerous health problems as a result of poor diet. Bliss is costly, as you usually end up buying more food and spend more money on medical bills as results of complications of said diet. Bliss is damaging to your children when you fail to develop healthy eating habits and exercise routines for them - the fat leading the fat, you could say.

I used to be overweight, and even currently am not in the best shape I can be, but I look at these 250-300ish lb people and thank god I'm no longer like them. I don't look down on them, and I don't judge them, but I wish they'd at least ATTEMPT to improve themselves. There's really nothing wrong with people wanting other people to improve themselves, right?

Anyway, an interesting thing I learned from watching a movie called Killer at Large is that one factor of gas consumption is the average weight of the American family. The heavier the household, the more load it is on their vehicles, and the more their MPG is reduced. I have no idea how large a factor it is in the scheme of things, just thought it worth mentioning. :P

If you have a Vita, get Disgaea 3. That game will last you for at least a month.

Seriously? After the E3 coverage, I'm now more cautious than ever about RE6.

I was being sarcastic. Hahaha. Just thought the fact that RE6 was left out was proof alone of its quality, or lack thereof. :P

It just looks like more Halo to me. Same good fun, but nothing excitingly new.

A lot of times, the DLC that I've played has been so underwhelming, I wish I never bought it. I'd preferably want the developer to just save the ideas and energy for a sequel. But, for the sake of the thread, I wouldn't mind extra colossi for Shadow of the Colossus.

If I paid for it, it would have been Ridge Racer for the Vita. Thankfully, I got it as a gift. Anyway, I think one of the worst games I purchased in a long time is... Sonic and the Secret Rings on the Wii. That was just an abhorable mess of a Sonic game. Literally gave me headaches.
