I’ve always had troubles remembering my own age (and a tendency to blink stupidly for a few moments when people ask my name), but I guess this just gets more socially terrifying the older you become.
I’ve spent about 20 minutes talking to a person while being completely certain that I was 4-5 years younger than I actually am. And only later it downed on me. As in “Hold on… what year is this?”
I wish I could do accents. Like on regular basis.
My ears are all ecstatic about the sound, but I can never really control how I pronounce things for more than one specific second.
Hell, I can’t really control what I say in general. Let alone how I say it.
sometimes I can’t help but wonder if I would actually be able to write down all the stuff that circles in my head if I had the health for it and my mind was clear enough… and what shitload of stuff that would turn out to be.
But “what ifs” are illogical.
Still can’t forget.
That one day about two years ago, when I, 15 minutes before the end of a long workday, came up to the manager and asked him if there “were any instructions from the CIA” with a very straight face.
Complete, with the whole “manager sitting down with a squeak and people turning heads towards us in the dead silence” scene.
It took me about 2 years working in gaming company to finally stop pronouncing SCEA (SIE) as CIA in Japanese.
still trying to read stuff, write stuff and watch stuff at the same time,
like I can’t decide or can’t handle doing only one
sometimes I just forget to tell myself that I’m crazy,
when I’m writing this story and struggle with some part and think “I can’t just change this! Because that’s how it happened!“
I also wish I could just see in other writers’ heads, to find out why writing some things feels like making up things any way you want, and writing other things feels like you’re trying very hard to ‘novelise a movie’ from memory (and a very old memory at that)
my brain likes to mis-read and mis-write words a lot
think food and write door
see liked and read killed
… but even I think that mixing up Astrophysics and Aphrodisiacs is a first
my defense is that they do have a lot of same letters, yes.
couldn’t remember how to spell ‘jewellery’
I must be a disgrace to my gender
Sometimes I can’t believe what a terrible job people do editing gaming magazines. There’s so many typos and mistakes, I can’t believe they waste the paper…
This one is just plain insulting though. (Because no matter how famous the Witcher games are, it’s always going to be one of the best fantasy book series first.)
If I could draw funny pictures, I’d try to draw Uruguayan version of the witcher here.
When I try to sound serious and say something like “Peal kickle”
Peal kickle. In brutal ways.
And write Suncho instead of Synchro
Chicken soul for the soup
I’m not wrong… but still, oh god
… you might know that I love engrish a bit too much.
An official notice that was sent to our company from a game rating organization of a certain country I’ll refrain from naming. I’m not even kidding.
