Hello there. Welcome to my world of Random Thoughts. In this world I’ll be posting stuff about anime and manga. Not to mention various other topics. I may post the occasional music video every now and than. And from time to time, I’ll just talk about my life in general. But first, here are a few things about me.

I was born an only child, for one thing. Originally I was planning to go into art professionally, but recently I’ve been more inclined towards writing. I still do the occasional wallpaper every now and then though, and I also still draw a little. But much of my energy these days goes into writing fan fiction. I’ve also recently become interested in archive and library work, which is something I’ve discovered I’m good at. Finally, like most people on the Internet, I like cats.

That’s pretty much all you need to know about me. I'm not sure how often I'll post something here, but I'll try to as often as I can. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy visiting.

Technical Difficulties

I don't know if anyone else had problems this morning, but I've been unable to get onto TheO until just a few minutes ago. My browser kept giving me a message saying that it couldn't locate the server, or something like that. Every other website I went to was working just fine, so I assumed that it was a problem with TheO. So I'm curious to know, has anyone else been unable to get onto TheO today? It'd be a little weird if I was the only one, but whatever.

On a different topic, I'd like to ask for some help on a different sort of technical matter. I recently found this really cool Yu-Gi-Oh! scan and have been wanting to use it for a wallpaper.

My first thought was to use it for an iPhone wallpaper, but I'd probably have to crop out too much and it already has text. Plus I don't actually have an iPhone myself, and I want to use this scan for a wallpaper that I'd see every now and then on my own electronic device (I switch the desktop wallpaper on my computer at least once a week). It occurred to me that the scan looked like a movie poster, so my current idea is to use it as such. So I've been trying to find an interior background image with a wall that I could put the "poster" on, but have been having no luck. The easy way out is to just put it on a simple brick wall background, put in a character next to it, and call it good. But I'd prefer not to do anything that lame. So if anyone has any suggestions about what to do, I'd love to hear them.

More Waiting

My dad and I just got back from the vet's a few minutes ago, and it turns out there's some good news about my cat. He has been suffering from some kind of infection, but it's not extremely severe. So for the time being my cat's been put on antibiotics. We're just going to have to see how he does over the next couple of days. This might be something he may yet pull out of. All we can do is wait and see how he responds. The vet also put my cat on a special food, since he's reached the beginnings of kidney failure. That's just something that happens with old cats.

So it doesn't look like my cat's ready to be put out to pasture just yet. That makes me feel a little better. Of course I did have to change the special announcement I put at the end of my current Digimon fanfic explaining the reason why it's been put on hiatus. I guess I should've waited one more day to put that announcement up. That story's still going to be on hiatus for awhile. I just no longer feel like working on it after everything that's happened over the past few days. Anyway, it looks like things are actually looking up a bit. We're just going to have to see if my cat improves.

That's it for now. Until next time.

EDIT: Things are looking up a little more. My cat actually ate some dry food this evening. There seems to be a pretty good chance that we can nurse him back to health. The only thing that really bothers me about all this at the moment is that in addition to this infection he has, my cat has also had a small stroke. I think it's called a TIA or something. Anyway, it's really effected his mobility. He's really wobbly on his legs. I'm not sure if he's going to get his full mobility back, plus this stroke may have effected other things. But at least he's not suffering.

That's it for now. Until next time.
