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.

Mage players are nerds. I was born with two fists and was too busy fucking to learn how to read.

"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.
Mexico's chosen one. Videogames and Boxing, with a bit of software engineering sprinkled through.
Never forget why you started in the first place.
