no offense but like. Kimi and Seb have 5 championships between them. Kimi is the oldest driver on the grid, Seb is the most successful driver on the grid (in terms of championship titles). Max has one race win and is in the second year of his career. I don’t understand where he’s getting the nerve to claim Kimi and Seb’s criticism of his driving is “a big lie” when literally everyone is calling him out, including Niki fucking Lauda. i get that all drivers are arrogant to some degree, but like… you would think Max would wanna take some notes and listen to his vastly more experienced colleagues to improve his driving and thus have an even more promising future. if he keeps going like this he’s not gonna be a favorite anymore, in my opinion.
Originally, I debated going to the university to do some work… but I found the weather to be a bit too muggy for my taste and decided to stay in.
I’ve been spending an absurd amount of time editing one of my chapters, especially since it’s easily going to end up being my largest chapter. I’m only allowed 10k-15k words for my dissertation. Nothing more, nothing less.
This chapter is nearing 6k words (which I didn’t even realise until I noticed my word count was alarmingly high). Do you see my problem, ahaha.
The woes of having to talk about anything audiovisual: you can’t just assume the reader will know what you’re talking about (because it’s 99.99% likely they won’t have a damn clue), and you literally have to describe. every. freaking. thing. Can I also say how hard it is to describe synthesised sounds? Because it’s really hard not to just give up and write ‘whoooosh’ or ‘pffftlbtht’ or something.
Unfortunately, this particular chapter’s topic ended up being far more complex than I anticipated, but I guess it is what it is.
At least I was able to get some laundry done. I need to start packing as well since I’m moving out of the country in ten days and need to sort out all kinds of paperwork! Hooray! For adulthood!
But how will Gajeel react??? When he sees??? Juvia has died????
Yknow I bet initially he’ll be pissed at Gray for not saving her life and letting her die and he’ll try to go at Gray and attack him but when he sees the incredible emptiness and sorrow in Gray’s eyes, he’ll freeze in place and realize Gray did try to save her and prevent her from dying and that Juvia chose to give up her life.
He’ll probably feel short of breath and slowly lower his knees to the ground, face turned towards the floor. He’s in shock. He can’t believe the little water mage he’d known since his Phantom Lord days was fuckin gone. Dead. Not coming back.
He won’t get to eat her baked goods again. He won’t hear her voice ringing out across the guild as she follows after “Gray-samaa~” He won’t be able to tease her about her feelings for the ice make mage or comfort her about her feelings when she was down.
This is the first time some members of the guild see him cry. Because his oldest friend is dead, and she ain’t comin back.
selfies i liked but never posted for one reason or another. these range from taken 9 years ago to taken a few months ago and you cant even tell which is which because I’ve looked the same since i was 13.
