wow

I’m seeing now the main source of conflict between me and others comes from the fact I view ideas from different perspectives and more specific definitions than most. 

=/

Just because something sucks does not mean it’s not viable, nor does me saying it’s viable mean I don’t hate it just as much as you.

Upside: The professor is great and curved the test almost everyone failed.

Downside:  All real world practitioners say the stuff we’re learning in class isn’t really useful…

Oh and the information for the class is uninteresting in addition to being mostly useless…

…God help us all… >_>

Of characteristic form, the hilt of the dagger has chiseled grips terminating in acanthus leaves showing traces of silver.
