I’m finally on vacations guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuys!
OMG ADORABLE SHOTA KAWOSHIN
I AM SLAIN
If you’re like me, you have about 5 million things to do at any given time. Maybe you also intend to practice a skill or do something every once in a while to get better at it, but you keep putting it off because you just never remember, among other things. Maybe you have a shitload of assignments and projects due and it’s hard to keep track. Maybe, like me, your short-term memory is basically non-existant.
Good news - there’s this (free!) thing called HabitRPG that can help you out. It’s fun, charming, and extremely easy to use - you map out habits and things to do and get rewarded for accomplishments! It basically makes your life into a little videogame.
I’ve been using it for a few days, and I’ve gotten my friends to use it, and it’s already helped us all immensely. Check this out:
You can make parties to see your friends’ progress, which is hells of cool. You can make lists of all the things you need to do, and when you do something, you gain gold and experience, which can go towards buying things from a shop - weapons, armor, potions - or even your own custom reward (Cake, anyone?) while missing something will drain your HP a little.
You can set things to be done on certain days, or even during certain times! And you can set the day to begin at a certain time as well - for me, it’s 7 am - 7 am!
You can customize your character and profile, and the community and devs are strong and responsive as well.
You can even “check in” at the Tavern in game if you’re going on vacation or the like, so you won’t be penalized for missing a few days! The lead dev is also pretty active on Twitter and a seriously nice dude - check him out here! New things and fixes are constantly being rolled out, which is also very nice - the dev support for HabitRPG is seriously awesome.
I seriously could not recommend this more, it’s absolutely amazing. It’s super fun, and in the last few days I’ve accomplished more work and creative practice (and drank more water), than I have in the last two weeks combined. It makes everything less overwhelming, and more of a challenge that you know you can beat.
Give it a shot, and if you like it, let your friends and followers know about it - I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!
omfg I need this in my life and is it on ipad?
holy shit yes I may actually get stuff done now
SHARE TO SAVE TUMBLR!
- Let’s try and get 100k notes
A review by one of the folks sums it up perfectly:
“What worries me about Yahoo! buying Tumblr is how it would choose to incorporate the website into its email and homepage features. One of the reasons why Tumblr is so unique is because it’s a niche market. By adding more users who don’t fit into this niche, it would make it more difficult for communities to develop within Tumblr, and Tumblr would have to change to accommodate these new users. Tumblr as a website is not the kind that you can sign up for in a day and be on your way. It is a website crafted so that you can immediately post but must spend several weeks, sometimes even months, to build a community. With new users who would not be willing to spend time growing a community, Tumblr would have to be changed, which would alienate its current users. Those users have spent time and effort to make Tumblr what it is today, and they are the ones who spend time on the website daily. A user who is checking onto Tumblr because it’s attached to their homepage is not going to be as strong of a user nor as dedicated. By changing the website to suit this new user, you would lose the strong users while building an undedicated usership.
To any website that would think of buying Tumblr, they must understand that it is a website that cannot be changed to make it more user friendly to a casual blogger. I think that many Tumblr users would be less worried about a buy-out if they were promised that their communities and ways of using Tumblr would not be changed. No one is going to mind Yahoo! buying the website and gaining a few extra million dollars per year from the minimal advertising; what we will be upset with is if a company like Yahoo! then changes the website to increase casual users and decrease dedicated users. Yahoo! would gain nothing by losing this “cool” group of bloggers in an age group they so desperately want to reach, so they must cater to these individuals by leaving the website exactly as is.” - houseoftombombadilAs much as is does sound like a load of bullshit for someone to buy Tumblr, it’s a possibility. I Personally think it should stay independent and I hope David Karp keeps a hold of it like his own child. Or we make enough noise to where such major changes (if bought) will not happen. I would hate to see Tumblr turned into an advertising dump.We’re not a ‘hip fad group’ to be marketed to. I hate the fact that’s all we look like to businesses in the end.
reblogging again for this ^
Dont go to AWA man just dont do it youll regret it forever
Well it’s not necessarily about going, we just have some questions to ask, buuuuut may I ask why?? That was actually one of the ones that had perfect timing to allow us to go, but I don’t know that we’re in a place yet to actually follow through.
Reblog b/c couldn’t put everything into a reply
From an industry/sales perspective, it’s probably not too bad; it’s the largest con in the region and it pulls not too bad of an attendance (though idk what numbers you aim for; it’s ~13k for the past three years), but the congoers are AWFUL.
Back when the original weeaboostories was running, a lot of them were stories from AWA. For some reason, the AWA attendees have, in my experience, been more likely to invade space, damage property, break rules, etc to the point that I think one recent year the host complained about it. I’ve been to Anime Expo, Otakon, AWA, Momo-con, and some other small cons, and the AWA attendees have been by far the wildest of these. And then Vic Mignogna’s yearly attendance also brings its own group of infamous crazies.
But hey, don’t take my word for it! I’ve probably got a pretty jaded view, and there are a ton of people (congoers, artists, and sellers) who have enjoyed it as well. As it’s been a few years since I’ve gone, it’s also possible that things have changed (I think rules have tightened up at least, though I don’t know if security has tightened up accordingly).
I can at least attest to the fact that you will definitely find a lot of fujoshi/fudanshi. This much I am sure of.
