Thoughts after my first BJJ class:
- Incredibly fun
- Nice to be able to practice with people from the get-go
- Much less tiring/physically demanding than your average boxing class
I'd say I recommend anyone who's hesitant about martial arts to give BJJ a shot, but it's also very complex and intimidating, and I do feel like someone who wants to see measurable progress would probably fare better with a striking art.
In retrospect, it was rather ignorant of me to go as far as to call Mexico "a shithole", or to say the US is "literally what I imagine he'll to be like, but real."
The reality of the situation is that all of society sucks, and I'm making it my life's goal to move to a tiny cabin in the mountains, where I can practice martial arts in peace.

The reflexive veneration of books over movies, podcasts, articles, and even video games reflects a vacuous classism with no substance
I'm way more book oriented than anything else, and the medium is not an automatic filter on trash
Ffs, 12 rules for life is a book
"Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight" provides one of the most authentic Metroid-esque experiences in recent memory, while still remaining creative and innovative enough to maintain an identity of its own. It's a fantastic game I can't wait to play more of, and it makes me sad it so often gets spoken over in "best Indie game" discussions.
I've sort of come to accept that I'll most likely be playing TF2 for the rest of my life.
Most games I've played before I'd liked periodically, even ones I sunk an untold amount of hours into like League of Legends or the various Call of Dutys. But I've been playing TF2 for something like 4 or 5 years now and I can't see myself growing tired of it anytime soon. It just feels like there's always more that can be done.
I just wish I'd fallen in love with a better game, tbh.
Like I understand if you can't afford financially - we live in a society that doesn't provide financial stability or reliability to its citizens. There's other ways you can help with projects!
* Bug reporting
* Writing content about them and your experience <> reviews
Some projects highlight how you can help in these capacities on their sites. If not, def reach out to the developer and ask them about it (if you feel comfortable + capable to)

So apparently there's talks for Tyson Fury to rematch Wilder?
Why? Their last fight was *incredibly* one sided. Unless Wilder suddenly overhauled his entire boxing style, he really doesn't have much to prove.
Not that watching another 12 rounds of Fury splattering him across the ring wouldn't be entertaining, mind you, it just seems like a futile effort at this point.
Mexico's chosen one. Videogames and Boxing, with a bit of software engineering sprinkled through.
Never forget why you started in the first place.
