swimming problem

  • Me: When you get older, you just never find the time to read books anymore.
  • Me: *finds time to read a 200k fanfiction in the span of two days.*

Why I hate going outside

Me : starts walking to shop. Plays anime song/episode/etc as I am walking. Violently imagines what it would be like to be part of that world. Starts doing gestures as if I’m in an episode. Mouth or actually speak to anime characters in my head. Loving every moment.

 Everyone else : what the hell is wrong with you 


 Me : goes back to pretending that I would rather be in the place I am but really wanna be back in my own privacy so I can continue my fun

So I decided to make “Danielle’s favorite anime men” hunger games and…this happened. Oikawa is out for blood. (I also died the first day because Soryu was trying to shoot Mamoru with a bow and arrow and hit me instead. 🙃)

How would one go around riding that burrows - like a sandworm?

This is gonna be disappointing, but the answer is…. nnno….

Digging animals, worm-like or otherwise, are an inherently rider-unfriendly experience. Swimming and flying animals are already pretty difficult with the aerodynamics and oxygen problems, but “swimming” through a solid would be even worse. you would just get…. scraped off. Even following behind in a little vehicle wouldn’t usually work, since animals like worms and moles and etc don’t always leave a big empty “burrow” behind them, especially in loose earth. You can soooorta see it in this mole vid but i can’t find that many vids showing animals digging, since it DOES require x-rays. In dense, clay-heavy soil you might have shot at following behind the critter in the tunnel, but it would be terribly unsafe and unreliable.

I think the closest thing to a digging mount I can practically recommend is training a digging animal to excavate a tunnel for you, then moving through the packed tunnel walls afterwards. It honestly wouldn’t be much slower.

The thing about Makoto Tachibana...

He’s not talented like Haru or Rin,

nor does he have a bright personality like Nagisa or Gou to make him stand out. 

He doesn’t openly express himself like Rei to get himself noticed. 

He’s not like other characters.

People don’t notice him, or his problems

because he doesn’t bother showing them.

He’s like the friend who’s always there,

and it’s because of that

that people take him for-granted.

Makoto would willingly give himself up for his friends,

like when they were kids and Makoto left the dolphin keychain to Haru because his best friend wanted it, and he was fine with whatever else was left;

like when he risked it all to save Rei when he was drowning, despite having trauma himself.

Makoto, is actually very much like the most of us.

The little fears he has, like being afraid of ghosts,

or even the fear or drowning, they’re all like us.

The fact that he feels inferior towards Haru and Rin, 

feeling like he’ll never match up to them,

I’m sure we’ve been through that…being envious of your friends.

Being afraid of the uncertainty of future,

leaving high school and friends, knowing you can’t keep on following your friends anymore, and that you’ll have to make plans for your own future. 

How many people in this world can really match up to Makoto? 

Kind, loving, selfless, warm… 

And while Makoto sounds perfect,

we know that he has his flaws. 

He’s insecure, he’s afraid, he’s not lucky, nor gifted; he’s taken for-granted

and he’s going through what every one of us goes through. 

That sense of inferiority that every one of us needs to face in order to be able to move on to do greater things. 

And to find a future of our own, even if it’s different than what you hoped it would be.

The thing about Tachibana Makoto…

is that he’s so surreal and so real at the same time. 

I guess, to me,

he’s an inspiration,

teaching me to confront everything that’s holding you back

and accept reality as it is.

Talent, gifts, not everybody has them,

but we can do great things too. 

There are no big dreams or small dreams,

to dream a dream that makes you happy is good enough. 

Why Every Stroke is Actually the Worst

Written by a swimmer

Butterfly: Honestly I shouldn’t even need to explain this but…it’s exhausting, your arms feel like noodles after 50m, you’re constantly hitting the lane line and/or other teammates with your arms, and if you want to take more breaths you have to take more strokes.

Backstroke: First of all, you always get water up your nose. How, you ask? This is the stroke where your face isn’t even underwater, so that’s impossible! Wrong! All the water splashing around you ends up in your face and it’s terrible. Also you can’t see in front of you so it’s easy to plow right into the lane line/the pool side/your teammates.

Breaststroke: Even though you’re swimming at a normal pace it feels like you’re going soooo slow. If you’re out of practice the motions also feel really unnatural sometimes. And circular leg strokes = kicking your teammates.

Freestyle: Pressure to be fast because it’s the easiest stroke. Plus, you get to breathe the least of all four because you can’t (well you can but you’re not supposed to because it’s slow) breathe each stroke.

I'd much rather worry about a fictional characters problems than my own.
