I got my hair cut and I've been listening to this beautiful french girl the whole day

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP2n7oTI0HI

It really gets good after a few seconds when the riddim sets in together with her saying Aqua bon ? I don't speak french. Yesterday I listened to a song of her that obviously was a love song, I thought it was about accepting the end of a relationship but it turned out to be about an unlucky lesbian love and how it's not accepted anyway but she wants to really be with the other girl nonetheless.

Every day I walk past that bookstand and every fucking day I still see that Prokofiev biography. I hate it for whatever reason. It's like it's taunting me.

Today I made a grave mistake. During class, we started studying rhetoric, and as an exercise we were given two poems and a hypothetical situation, where we were to pick one to fill the last free slot in an anthology. We did this in groups of 3-4. I was in a group with two girls, one that hates me, and one that I sometimes talk with and share homework and information with. So we read the poems, talk about them, discuss the merits and then we pick one. The one we picked was the one that sounded more traditional and old. (It was also a task to identify which is contemporary and which is from a hundred years ago.)
Both were impressionist poems. I argued that the one titled "An Impressionist Dream" was the newer one, simply because it had a more minimalist language, and it's title expressed a meta-approach to impressionism, one that's only possible once the given style has been surpassed. The girl I'm closer to was intrigued by my comments, the one that hates me didn't particularly care because of a headache.
As conclusion, we voted, who likes which, and I voted for the perceivably older poem. The girl I like stated she likes both, to which I replied that I'm not fond of the modern one, simply because the older poem has a fuller and richer language.
In the end, we picked the older one as a group.
I stood up, made an oration in defence of our choice, and then sat down.

Eh probably eventually, but my point is having a solid internal clock. My problem is it's just totally desynchronized from the outside world. I mean I have stared out the window into pitch black before thinking it felt like 3pm, and looked into bright sunny day thinking it felt like deep night. So the problem is keeping myself coupled to the day/night cycle to begin with. I knew someone who also could do this but didn't have a messed up sleep schedule so it never went off. Your own biological rhythms are like a perfect piece of clockwork.

I can easily lose track of days and years, but it's more like knowing my sleep schedule. My main problem is this
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delayed_sleep_phase_disorder
In order to maintain the same usual work with lunch breaks and uni classes type of routine I have to drug myself massively in order to keep to a schedule. I got heavily into booze mainly because of this and keeping myself from drifting. College was a pain in the ass and I eventually stopped taking early morning classes altogether because the lack of consistency made it worse. Your problem seems to lie elsewhere in the general schizophrenic/depersonalizing/schizoid tendencies. I am pretty sure most normal people are completely aware of their own internal clocks.

Does Ernst follow any professionally played videogames? To what extend?
From time to time i like watching Quake Live and CS:GO but i don't think i'm interested enough to actually visit any events like many other people do.

Another big difference is that the rules of chess are fixed and there is no corporation who's interested in turning a profit behind it

So there are no microtransactions, no straight-up and no under-handed P2W etc. There is lots of toxicity surrounding modern esports, naturally as lots of money is involved

That's no difference, that's the case in every competition in every game, be it chess, football or quake.
If you look up organizers of tournaments you also find rulebooks, be it chess, football or quake
Example:
https://gfx.esl.eu//media/eu/csgo/eslone/katowice2015/ESLOne_CSGO_Rulebook.pdf

>and there is no corporation who's interested in turning a profit behind it

And the price money of chess tournaments just happens to be there without any source?
If you look up different tournaments you find organizers and sponsors just like in every other game.

Regarding esports, I really enjoy watching SC:BW Remastered casts, especially by this charming fellow, FalconPaladin. At the moment this beats actually playing the game online for me. He casts top replays with all the big names, and makes this all into some really good time (damn I sometimes feel my English skills are rusty beyond repair and a grammar nazi would be a huge long-term benefit). There is also this Russian SC2 caster, Alex007sc2, his casts are extremely skilled, prime-time-MSM level works, however, he's casting SC2, to which I am quite foreign. Still incredibly fun to watch, so much tension and drama, it's the perfect spectator sport. I tried watching some SC:BW first-person VODs but almost caught epilepsy there, the speed is insane.

Sadly, I myself never broke the 85apm threshold. Even though Day9 made, like, an 100-hour long Let's Learn Starcraft videoguide, of which I only managed to watch maybe 7 or 10 hours.

Help me, Ernst! I am searching for everything from Biene Maya, Pettersson und Findus, Muumins and other kids cartoons from that time. Also old episodes from 'Wissen macht Ah!' would be nice. I can't navigate the german internet, the language actually isn't important, but I couldn't find any of them on the english.

I have translated "Повторите правило!" to English not good enough. It would be translate more precise as "Recall the rule!". And "вежливая форма" means that those sentence addressed to one person with politeness.

>>Lauf nicht so schnell!

Since we have a general for everything I thought we could also have one for sports. Not sure if even anyone else here is interested but it is worth a try.

Tonight are the semifinals of the World Cup in Handball. I am not a big fan myself but I will be watching the game at 20:30 CET between Germany and Norway. Denmark already made it to the finals about an hour ago by winning against France. So far there was a lot of drama during the tournament because there were very many games to play within a very short time and also because the referees seemed to have been judging in favour of the hosts of the tournament Germany and Denmark. Especially Croatia had reason to complain about that.

Upcoming events are a weekend of football with the FA cup in Britain and the Bundesliga in Germany. During the week we will see matches in the Premier League and the second Bundesliga starting. I am sure there are also matches played in Italy, Spain and France, but I am not involved there much. And on the next weekend, besides many football matches, the Americans have their big handegg cup final.

If your favourite sport isn't listed, please feel free to add your information!

The nastiest sport I know of is Waterball. I had a gymteacher who lost an eye during a match and he assured us that such thing wasn't totally uncommon. But especially everything that happens below the water line must often be extremely painful.

>Djokovic, Federer, Nadal
If I understand correctly, Federer is pretty much out of the race, as he is not able to compete with the other two anymore. So they are now chasing his record. Apparently the Serbian got the upper hand at the moment, but six titles is some way to go. Our "German" ace Zverev seems to lack the nerves, like a lot of prodigys in various forms before him, to finally make it to the top.

Today the Premier League continues after the cup break and the second Bundesliga is starting after the winter break. There will be a lot of fine matches to watch. :3

Liverpool didn't get the win but, if I understand the away-goal rules correctly, the fact that they kept Bayern from scoring should work in their favor if the teams play to a draw again. Either way, at least you can look forward to their next match where the stakes will be even higher. Since the end of our handegg season I've turned my attention to the NBA, but those regular season games don't have anywhere near the buildup of a Champions League match. For a big event, where wins and losses really matter, I'll have to wait for the NCAA college basketball tournament which begins in March

The thing is, I think what Jordan Peterson and Marie Kondo preaches (Order, discipline, cleanliness, responsibility) should be self evident by the time you reach adulthood.

The Autobiography of Yukichi Fukuzawa

Its fascinating, especially if you're interested in modern Japanese history. He visited Europe and the United States several times in his life and its interesting to see how it altered his views on Japan. He was also one of the first Japanese who wasn't a castaway to learn the English language.

also a cool little fact it that he is on the most valuable Japanese banknote and Benjamin Franklin who is on the most valuable American banknote also wrote an extremely famous autobiography

AFAIK not directly but you can probably apply some sort of Youtube SEO techniques to make your videos more appealing to the suggestion algorithm

BTW personally I started using a Chrome extension called DFTube* recently to block the recommended videos column and other unnecessary stuff so I don't waste as much time on YouTube. Very happy with it so far.

Recently, Kazahstan poster had an interesting idea about thread dedicated not to random pics, but for drawing and paiting and other kind of original content. He sadly not created one, but I think this is neat idea - when you learn how to draw and paint it always awesome to have help and critique, and I think with earnstchan quality of posting we can get very good reasults in help each other mastering our skils.

So I've been in a depressive/degenerate phase for the last few months, and I've barely written anything since the first story I posted.

I'm going to get serious about writing every day now, and I'll make updates each day on Wattpad. I've started on one other project, a survival-horror series, and I'm going to alternate between that and the history series every other day. Feedback provides a lot of motivation, so I'd appreciate anything you guys have to say about my ongoing work.

For the young people here who still have dreams, I strongly advise against academia as a career. I was considering it myself, but as I talked with my professors I realized that 90% of the time is spent answering emails, or teaching dumbass undergraduates who think they know everything (and this was at a very good university).

It's a rat race to get into academia, and it isn't even all that worth it. Even if you can only imagine yourself in a research position, you should still plan for something else, because you need an alternative to the rat race if it winds up burning you out.

>>12413
I had no friends at university for the first year and a half, until on a whim I joined my department's undergraduate club, which just happened to be a clique of people who thought like me. I'd probably have been friendless throughout uni without that club. I also had a chance with several perfect EC-tier girls, but I fucked all of that up.

There will absolutely be likeminded people at university (including girls), but you have to go out of your way to meet them. If you're naturally introverted and reclusive, the increased freedom of university can easily lead to greater social isolation.

Every career is. You always need to know people, groom your contacts, establish networks, laugh at the stupid jokes of others. I highly envy the people who fortunate and gifted with a true talent that makes them unique, so they have much less need for doing this race. But even they have to do it to some level.
