#sorryasianparents EP11 – Bukowski Quotes, Alcohol, and Identity

Hi hi,

This is a recording I did with Capt Ahab, so the audio is a different pitch, and my rip-off graduation photo covers his image. I know it’s annoying but bear with me; it’s a good conversation. And I just learned from Google sensei that it’s bear and not bare since bare means to reveal, and to bear with someone means patience because of actual bears…..fun fact, I guess.

I mentioned this episode in ep #SAP EP09 us two and Salutationsgoodvibrations. Here we talk about identity, self-confidence, college parties, finding yourself, my love for anime and video games, and we even get to see a video of me in high school give my class a light show. We also talked a lot about “New Girl”. Like my other videos, I promise you that this will all make sense….kinda….just trust me.

If you have any stories about finding yourself or wanna share what this Bukowski quote means to you, leave a comment down below. AND!!! (I guess I’m going to have to start saying this even though it makes me cringe) if you like the video, please give me a thumbs up and a sub.

“That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.” – Charles Bukowski

Weebthusiast EP05 – Mental Health and Why We Play Video Games (Especially during quarantine)

 

Hi Hi!

 

Well, it surely has been a while since I last posted a video on here. I haven’t stopped uploading, though; I’ve been posting videos on my other channel #sorryasianparents. But I still haven’t forgotten about this baby. Many of us Weebthusiasts have been busy with other projects, but we try to get together as much as possible and make some new content. 

 

In this episode, Justice and I welcome our new friend Emilio on the show. It’s a new year, but everything still feels about the same. Since we are entering another stay-at-home order and have a new face, we decided to talk about how playing video games affects our mental health. We touch on what games we are currently playing, the community we have formed, and the positives vs. negatives from partaking in this digital pastime. We go on a few tangents, but we can’t help it. We’re just a bunch of excited gamers who are eager to share a piece of our minds. 

 

If you’re also playing video games during this trying time, let us know! We would like to hear what games you’re playing and how you feel about video games.

Weebthusiast EP03: Justice and I Talk Destiny 2

Hi hi,

Justice and I got together to talk about some of the video games we are playing during quarantine. Coincidentally, we both are playing the same game: DESTINY 2!!!! We didn’t plan this, it just kinda happened. We also talk about hate mail, those old Xbox lobbies where boys would say mean things, and also how boy gamers don’t know how to act when a girl enters the chat. Our session this time is pretty long so the second part where Erin joins us will be on a different video. Unfortunately, Scott couldn’t make it this time but we will all be reunited soon!

So I hope y’all enjoy.
