Portable Pressing

I am excited to say that I am typing this post on my new keyboard for my fairly new Samsung tablet. I look forward to being able to start Word Pressing again on a portable venue. As I type this I am able to review it quite properly. It seems that this particular keyboard, at least on this App, is seeing some disconnect. If I stop typing for more than half a second, then it “disconnects” the keyboard and I have to tap the screen a few times in order to reconnect and start typing again. So, it seems, think fast, type fast is the theme of the day!

I’m definitely liking the ease of having an actual keyboard over the touchscreen keyboard. It feels a bit better and is a bit more cohesive, and avoids blocking out half the screen while you are typing. It will take some time to get used to this “micro” keyboard, after using a full sized keyboard on my laptop for so long. My fingers seem to be quickly adjusting to the change though. Even the “disconnect” issue that I am having between the keyboard and the WordPress App is becomming less of a hassle (annoying, to be sure, but easily dealt with considering the other pros of the keyboard).

While I will definitely be holding onto my previous Tablet case, simply to have something more lightweight for when I don’t need the keyboard, I am truly excited to be able to type with ease on my tablet!

Here is a link to the keyboard I purchased!

I Don’t Like “People”

I’ve been waiting fo someone to write about this.

Wandering Thoughts

(You, on the other hand, are awesome.)

I enjoy a good rant every now and then, but I’m going to try to keep this very civil, polite, and light-hearted.  I’m going to start with a simple fact.  People are exceptionally stupid.  Yes, this is the most civil way to express the painful degree of willful ignorance and the general auto-lobotomistic tendencies of the masses.  This came up recently because I have access to the internet, and so do people, but I’m going to be more specific and provide a few examples in response to a pretty tame and pleasant advertisement for Coca-Cola (you can watch it here).

I really don’t like to pay attention to these sorts of feces-flinging protozoa, as it generally just feeds their shallow pleasure in being observed.  So please note I can’t describe my level of disinterest in these people.  My concern is that they…

1001 Previews: Cinders

Always excited for the visual novel type decision making games! Especially with a female protagonist and fairy tale feel!

1001-Up.com

I regularly keep an eye on Steam Greenlight and last week came across a new entry by developer MoaCube. Cinders is a mature take on a well-known fairytale, and we’re grateful to Tom Grochowiak for answering our questions on this wonderful visual novel.

Title - Cinders

Cinders is a witty young woman living with an overbearing stepmother and her two daughters, as if she was reenacting a certain classic fairytale. But unlike its protagonist, she isn’t not afraid of taking fate into her own hands… even if that means breaking the rules! The game takes a look at four women and what made them who they are. It’s a story about balancing freedom and dreams with circumstance and harsh reality, and about growing up and finding out the true meaning of independence.

MoaCube is a small collective of indie game developers, started by two game industry vets: designer Tom Grochowiak and illustrator…

An Open Letter to a Privileged White Girl

As a slightly overweight, middle class white girl who has never done yoga, I am rather appalled by the Skinny White Girl’s post and empathize much more with this response and the “heavyset black woman.”

Black Millennials

Dear Skinny White Girl Who Does Yoga,

I hope you’re well after the treatment you’ve been getting online. Tonight, I read your article, and as I’m sure you can imagine, I was upset with you. In your article, you surmised that a heavy set Black woman, never before seen in your yoga class, was somehow hostile towards you because you are a skinny white girl. Through your discomfort, you interpreted her actions to be one of anger, tragedy, and despair that, for some reason, was solely directed towards you and your “tastefully tacky” yoga outfit.

Imaginary hostility

You then had an epiphany of sorts. What that epiphany was, I’m still unclear. Perhaps you got your first introspective taste of intersectionality; of how body image for Black women is particularly brutal and confusing. Or maybe you acknowledged how African Americans cannot enjoy modern delights without causing the suspicion of the white privileged…

Anna and Toby: An Inspirational Comic

Edit: I wanted to give the original author better credit , so here’s a fresh link, where you can find a continued story of Anna and Toby: http://www.stanleycolors.com/2013/10/anna-toby-01/

Anna & Toby

The feeling of being unwanted, unloved, and alone is a prevalent one in our culture these days. I myself have these feelings often, and it leads me down a path I like to refer to as “doom spiraling”. This comic, which I found trough Facebook, is one that I really appreciate, because even though I often feel despair, I am more of the opinion that young Anna has, that life is precious, and that it is important to cherish it, and help it survive through each and every moment that we encounter. So please, click the link, read the whole comic, and feel free to comment what you think!
