A few months back, I was playing my favorite Open-World simulation video game and I noticed I was missing one of the most expensive vehicles in my garage. To my amusement, I received a confession that my car had been replaced by a much more affordable and lackluster vehicle earlier ...

The Highway to Hell

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Nov. 14, 2020



Unless they are an old-timey Disney villain or similarly classic cartoon villain, nobody wants to be evil or bad starting off. Nobody's ambition is to be the villain in their own story. (note I say ‘villain’ and not ‘antagonist’)

Nostalgia for a Time Never Experienced

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Nov. 9, 2020



Anemoia describes the feeling of missing a time never experienced personally.
