Grabbed this from the hospital gift shop while my mom was recovering from surgery. Only one they had (they had a bunch of other germs and cells, but this was the only nerve cell). I intend to hand it to her when she gets home and tell her that I’ve gotten to her last nerve =3

*hugs you* Hang in there, Jammers; best of luck to your mother too. <3

Thanks hon *HUG* just got home and wrote a thing about it @_@ Not out of the woods, but, all around still great news

*crumples* I’m back

Mom’s okay

No complications. Everything went smoothly. No cancer found in her lymph nodes so highly unlikely chance of spreading. She might be able to come home as soon as tomorrow. This won’t be the last surgery though. They need to expand the skin and muscles and she was warned that’s going to be really painful.

Still, everything else, awesome

So yeah. And now since I had to wake up at 5AM, spent all day at the hospital, and only got home at around 10PM, I’m gonna go relax and let my eyes drift sideways

Thank you to everyone for your well wishes as well. It means a lot!

Currently operating on less than four hours of sleep. My mom will be going in for the first of many surgeries related to her breast cancer today. She’s already been warned several times how painful this is gonna be. Nng.

Gonna be all day at the hospital. Surgery itself is expected to be like six hours and this isn’t counting prep and recovery. I’m bringing laptop and touch tablet to the hospital. I might or might not come onto skype while there, I dunno. Prolli just gonna sit and read between sessions of getting pissed off playing Hearthstone. Today’s gonna be a fucking longass day and I want it to be over already

Wish us luck and safety

The hardest part about learning a new language I’m finding is the fact I’m still mentally translating it to English in my head @_@ I keep trying to think of the words as kind of like synonyms and an expansion of my vocabulary to avoid that. If I could just reach the point where I can think in that language without trying to mentally translate I’d trip myself up a heck of a lot less. And also if my crappy memory would let me remember what things in the other language are called >_o

Gaming culture was never anything but this weird, insular, xenophobic ghetto built around very toxic notions of masculinity and persecution complex. Games marketed at boys promoted and reinforced this hyper-machismo image, and gamers were seeking to embody it and so it went in an endless self-reinforcing circle. It is no accident that teenagers scream homophobic and gender slurs into their head-sets or brag about “raping” the opposing team in Call of Duty. It’s no accident that video game related message boards basically invented the “tits or gtfo” greeting. It is no accident that Anita Sarkesian could post feminist critiques of SF films, TV shows and novels without much harassment but the moment she started talking about video games, she instantly got death and rape threats. Because this community was not build around tolerance, acceptance of criticism or diversity. It was a fortress of solitude built by man-children to protect their toys from evil mainstream activists.

mindythings:

what’s the point of being a fan if you’re not a critical one? what’s the point of absorbing media without the intention of analyzing it? i don’t understand why some people wholeheartedly defend their faves’ flaws and shortcomings, when pointing out and not supporting your faves’ problematic aspects DOES NOT MAKE YOU ANY LESS OF A FAN BUT MAKES YOU AN ENGAGED AND AWARE CONSUMER
