This is a reply to this.


Because you CAN!


If you compare yourself to a child of a similar age in a less well-developed country, such as Africa or rural China, you really are extremely privileged and comfortable, and you really should be considering yourself happy.

I realize I probably use this argument a lot, but it still remains striking, at least to me.

My below-par Japanese prose-reading (e.g. non-manga) skills failed to decipher the rest of that item within the bounds of my patience. I found it odd that you used “ore” as your personal pronoun (no offense or anything, haha; it’s totally cool).

Oh, and I can’t quite remember what post you’re quoting that inspired this post, haha.


Stop making unsubstantiated claims about my future happiness >_<;


Think of it this way; as a kind of Thanksgiving thing. Count the things you’re grateful for, rather than brood over the hateful things in your life.

It doesn’t solve any problems at all, but happy AHS students are efficient AHS students.


“Making your own happiness”, is it? That’s some pretty slick wording, but doesn’t it basically still entail convincing yourself that you are in fact very happy?



That’s the spirit!


You’re lightyears beyond me.


I really should’ve replied in Japanese… sorry ;_;

… 実は、もう一回自分のポストを読んだ。意味あんまりね。

That happens 100% of the time when I try to post in Japanese. Or maybe we’re just too tired to understand what we just wrote.

    hiya! what Japanese font(s) are you using – been looking for good fonts to flesh out my collection. been relying on Meiryo a tad much. ^^v

  2. Benji says:

    I think this is just the italicized version of the default Japanese font on your system. ^^”

    tho I could be wrong, lol.

  3. lex says:

    oh, i recognized Meiryo immediately, it being my default ever since it came out – still the clearest and most complete font choice by far, I’m sure. i was referring to fonts you use offline, e.g. that handwritten font – posted under the wrong entry, whoops! ^^”

  4. Benji says:

    ohh lol. that was mikachan, a free japanese handwriting font I found on the internet. I’ll look up the link…

    A lot of my other Japanese fonts are stolen from anime files. You know how lots of fansub groups add custom fonts for the karaoke… yeah XD
