The price cut on the Vita is nice. I just wish there was something I wanted to play on it. If I have the choice between my giant television and a tiny handheld screen I will pick the TV every time. I understand that some people don't have the luxury of having a gaming PC or a television all the time. I just wish they would put out something that would interest me.
I watched a huge chunk of them this summer. I really enjoyed Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Porco Rosso, and Nausicca and the Valley of the Wind. Start with pretty much anything directed by Miazaki.
I think im in a unique position, because I have had and still do have a lot of dificulty reading peoples emotions I have basicly turned emotions into a science. soI often never get emotionaly invested in things. and often, too often torn humans into math.
Is that a Silence of the Lambs quote?
As a Christian sometimes I can get a bit preachy and defensive myself. She made a mistake by pushing you too hard. You made a mistake by losing your temper. It's okay though. Everyone makes mistakes and anger is a totally acceptable emotion. It's important to learn what will trigger your outbursts and either avoid them or use the anger in a more constructive manner (put it towards working out or something). It's also important to accept your mistakes and forgive yourself.
What helps me when I'm angry is that I vent. If you have someone close to you you can just talk to them about how you're feeling. If you don't have access to that then a mirror or an empty chair works as well (it feels weird at first but it works pretty well).
Getting extra sleep is very important too. Your brain continues to work through a lot of your problems and emotions as you sleep. Extra sleep also helps by lowering our stress levels and helps us to process emotions better.
The Wirecutter did a pretty good article about this a few weeks ago. They decided on this Vizio TV. I have a similar VIzio television but after 3 years it stopped responding to TV remotes. They aren't the greatest brand but they're good if you live on a budget.
That article got super insightful. It was depressing and uplifting at the same time. I remember at last year at the PAX East panel you talked about expressing gratitude to people who do something you appreciate. I try to do that with everything in my life now. I really appreciate the advice and thought you should know that.
