Before the song “UNDERTALE” was completed, it went through a completely different iteration. This version sounds a bit more sad, which I think would have been less effective.
It wasn’t until I heard a certain song that I was inspired to completely change the chords and guitar accompaniment. This new guitar accompaniment then served as the basis for “Memory,” so we have a lot to thank that inspiring song for.
That’s all of the unused songs. See you tomorrow for a brief retrospective on my past year.
(You guys had to have known this was coming)
Ok so pretty much; Shiro is in a huge car accident and loses his right arm because of it. Matt, his roommate visits him everyday, bringing is sister as well during a lot of his visits. Once Shiro is fitted with a top of the line prosthetic, he has to go through physical therapy to get used to using it. His doctor suggests yoga being a good way of learning how to rely on his prosthetic, and she even recommends a yoga instructor to help with the transition.
But Shiro is still pretty dang afraid of drive, so Matt takes him to his yoga classes, and even meets with the instructor, some super hot Cuban named Lance. He’s super funny and asks Shiro a bunch of questions about how far he is in physical therapy and where he might be struggling in when it comes to the prosthetic (it seems that a lot of amputees and those going through physical therapy take his classes.)
Lance is just super kind and sweet and even asks if Matt wants to join the class, if only to help help Shiro feel much more secure and relaxed. And DANG can this boy bend. He leads the class through so many yoga poses and Matt is pretty sure that his back is going to hate him for the next couple of days for taking it too far, but Shiro seemed to have enjoyed himself, and even looks more relaxed than he has in weeks.
Lance comes over after the class ends and asks how Shiro did through it, and if there was anything that might have pushed him to far. But before they leave, Lance slips something into Matt’s hand and then leaves to go and teach his next class. When they get back to the car, Matt looks at what Lance slipped into his hand and it’s a scrap of paper. With his number on it.
Before Owning a Bird I Agree to the Following Terms:
-I will do all the proper research necessary, not only on bird ownership, but on the particular species I intend to own. I will do more than just use a search engine. I will read, I will probe, I will ask questions. I will learn all the requirements.
-I will provide the biggest cage I can afford that meets or exceeds the cage requirements for my bird’s species.
-Within that cage I will provide proper toys, perches, and accessories. The cage will be placed in a safe, comfortable place within my home.
-This cage will be cleaned often and not allowed to become unsanitary.
-I will provide a proper diet for my bird. One that insures their continued health. I understand this may require food preparation, including bird-safe fruits and vegetables. I will provide fresh food and water daily. I will not allow food or water dishes to become unsanitary.
-I will search out avian vets and provide vet care when necessary.
-I understand that birds are long-lived. I will provide a loving, safe forever home for my bird as long as they live. I know that I may have this bird through different stages of my life and I agree to find ways to continue to care for my bird despite that.
-I will require those within my life including spouses, partners, parents, roommates, family, and guests to support me in my efforts for quality care for my bird. I will ask that they respect my bird. Those I invite into my life will understand that my bird and I are a package deal.
-However, in the event that something unpredictable occurs that prevents me from providing proper care, (for example if I become ill) I will find my bird a new home that meets the same standards of care I have, or I will find a reputable rescue to surrender my bird to. I will not abandon my bird or leave it in unsafe care.
-I understand that birds are smart, sensitive creatures that require enrichment in various forms. I will provide this via daily time outside of the cage, a multitude of toys both inside and out of the cage, and daily attention. I will research ways to stave off boredom for my bird. This can include force-free, positive reinforcement training.I will respect my bird and their intelligence.
-I understand that birds communicate largely through the use of vocals. I know that birds, no matter the species, are not quiet animals. I know that an always silent bird is impossible. I know that different species have different noise levels. I will take this into consideration in my research.
-I understand that birds are messy creatures. I know that messes will be made that I must clean, even outside the cage. This will include bird dander. This may require buying equipment like an air purifier.
-I understand that birds can be destructive. I know that larger birds have bigger beaks capable of damaging housing and valuables. Even smaller birds may damage jewelry and clothing. I know that destruction of property left within the bird’s reach is my own fault.
-I understand that I will get bitten. I know that my bird’s beak is one of the biggest ways they explore the world. I know that biting is also used to communicate. I will not take it personally when bitten. I will learn to read my birds body language to anticipate when a bite is likely.
-I understand most species of birds are not truly domesticated. I will be sensitive to this fact. I will not try to correct behavioral problems with violence, yelling, or neglect. I will attempt to see things from my bird’s perspective.
-I will unconditionally love my bird, even if they are not the perfect pet. Even if my bird never learns to talk, or perform tricks, I will love my bird. Even if my bird never takes to petting or becomes fully tame, I will love and care for my bird. My bird’s right to a good, safe home is not dependent on fulfillment of my expectations of what would make them a good pet.
-I will not place my animals in unsafe situations for any reason. This includes placing my bird with any predators, even other pets, for any amount of time. This includes unsafely taking my bird outside without a harness or cage. I will learn of dangers to my bird, like Teflon, and I will ensure my bird is safely away from such things.
-I will not disregard or minimize my bird’s importance due to any factor. Not even size or price. No bird is more important than another in my home. I understand that while some birds may have more lax requirements, this does not mean that quality care is sacrificed. I will not get a bird as simply a “starter bird” on my way to working up to a bigger bird. All are equally important.
-I will always continue my education when it comes to birds and their care. I will carefully consider constructive criticisms and strive to provide the best care possible.
I realize that I am all my bird has.
I know that living does not mean thriving. My goal is for my bird to thrive, not merely live, and I will never stop learning when it comes to this endeavor.
-I may make mistakes, especially as a new bird owner, but I will learn from my mistakes and I will not give up on myself or my bird.
-I understand that this is just a list of the minimum requirements and I will do more research than simply agreeing to this list. I will not bring home a bird until I find myself able to agree to all points on this list.
