thing: dreams do come true

I can’t help but marvel at how both Mana and Cross shaped Allen’s personality.

At first Allen was simply Red, a boy with no relations who didn’t belong to anyone and no one belonged to him. He was harsh, foul-mouthed and did his best to survive in his cruel environment.

Then came Mana who taught Allen many important things. Be patient. Talk politely. Act kind. Feel compassion for others. Forgive. He taught Allen to love others.

When Allen lost Mana, his only source of happiness Allen took these teaches to the extreme, he was always ready to sacrifice himself for other’s happiness, “love others” spiraled to martyrdom.

But then Cross took him as his Apprentice. He was nowhere near as gentle as Mana but he gave Allen important lessons too in his roundabout way. Stand up for yourself. Strike back when someone wants to take something from you. Fight for what you believe in. He taught Allen to love himself.

Hopefully Allen will take Cross’s teachings to his heart too and reach a balance where he can love himself as others so he can save himself.

Translation from Escape From Certain Death

 原作にはない特別なエピードも

A special episode that is not even in the original…

“!? ジャン いったい何を…”

“[Gasp]!? Jean, what the…”

“お前をエレンのところに… 行かせるかよ!”

“Should I let you go to Eren?”

Don't dream it. Be it!

In life you are going to be told that you are doing things wrong and most of the time you are going to be told that by people who have absolutely no idea what it is that you are doing. Always remember though that no matter what people tell you at the end of the day it’s you who is going to take the final decision. You should never let others make choices for you, because people choose for themselves. We all know what we want. We all have a dream deep inside us but we are afraid to let that dream come out and try making it happen because we know it’s going to be hard- but “Nothing worth having comes easy”. So don’t dream it. Be it. Don’t be afraid to fail, because even if you do you are still going to be a winner- it’s what they say “Never a failure, always a lesson”. Even if you fail you’ll be able to say “Hey you know what? At least I tried. At least I did something.” Even if you fail you will have proven to yourself that you have the guts to take such a risk in your life. Risk everything because dreams do come true. There isn’t a more satisfying feeling than knowing that you did everything you could do. So try, fail, try again, and fail again for as long as it takes till you get there. If you really want it, you will make it happen.  When you start feeling tired or when you start questioning it try to remember the reason why you started. What your goals are. Who you are willing to become by doing this. Believe in yourself, motivate yourself because if you don’t no one is going to do it for you. So every time you overanalyze whether you should do or not do something just say “Fuck it” and do it. Yes, you might fail. Yes, you might get hurt. Yes, it might take you a long time to recover from that bad decision but at least you know what happened. The regret of not even trying is way worse. Dreams do come true.

Without question this was the best moment of the 2014 NBA draft; respect!

I'm really sorry for this...

But I can’t continue running this blog anymore. 

That work that I thought would just be one project every once in a while has become an actual full time job, one which really requires I work a lot of hours a day. I’m still not paid enough to use those money for the game tho, so I don’t think I’ll be able to keep up with the pace of the events. Soooo…
I really tried my best during these last weeks and I thought that these last days would be a perfect test to see if I could do this without shards just by doing things between breaks. And it went pretty bad. (And I had to use all of the shards I had left at the end to get Carnage’s cage cause I really wanted to have it.) 
As in I really couldn’t keep up with the game, the job and the blog without giving up some sleep (and even then I didn’t have enough time to answer asks anymore). Which is not good for my health right now, so I had to choose what was best for me and give up on this blog even tho I was still enjoying running it.
The blog will still be here, so if anyone wants to see screenshots from older events they have a place where they can find them all, but I won’t be posting anymore nor answering asks. 

These 5 months that I’ve been running this blog have been nice and stressful, but I really feel like they were quite a lot of fun and really useful. I have never written so much in English and some of you gave me big boost of confidence about my ability with the language. (I still think I’m pretty bad, but at least I feel like I could have a conversation with someone without making a total fool out of myself.)
So I really wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone of you that helped me in any way during this journey. I really wish I could keep doing this, but I guess once again real life is more important, even more so when I’m actually doing a job that I dreamt of doing for a long time.

I guess this is a goodbye, then… Keep enjoying the game, guys!
