    The Original AirPods. If you've read my intro you'd know I love overrated audio equipment, so I scoffed at the AirPods for sounding like trash. That is, until I was able to own my mom's pair for a few months. Trust me, the sound quality doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things. It's so easy to just slip the case in your pocket, has a decent microphone, and unlike the SE315, the sound isolation isn't so insane that you forget to hear the fire alarm (true story, happened Freshman year).

    Depends what you're into, I like romcoms so I'd watch something like Toradora. If you like action I heard Attack on Titan was pretty good. I got into anime from all the marketing toys/franchises nonsense in the early 2010s (Pokémon, Beyblade) etc.

    Shure SE215 or 315 or higher depending on the budget. They sound really good, and the fit goes into your ear and is flat so you can sleep on them. I sometimes used to sleep with mine as well. The tradeoff is that sometimes you don't want all the sound isolation it provides, but you can change tips to fix that. The 215 is usually the one people buy more so you can see the reviews for yourself. I have the 315 myself.

    EDIT: forgot to mention the wireless part, you'll need to buy another bluetooth neckwire called the Shure BT1 or BT2, I don't know if that kills the deal for you or not. Personally, I don't mind neckwires.

    watching Toradora! again, for the 3rd time. What makes this different is that I screenshare with friends over Discord.

    haha, thanks a lot! Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo seems to have the same person behind it as Rascal? A friend also recommended it to me.

    been watching more and more anime again, realized that I enjoy slice of life romantic comedies for the most part.

    So far, I've watched Toradora!, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai and Clannad plus it's after story.

    I've been thinking about Bakemonegatari or something to that accord but might as well take advantage of my resources and get a few more reccomendations

    Alright I guess I'll go first:
    My screen name is monado, based on the sword from Xenoblade Chronicles.

    I'm currently a High Schooler, I used to frequent Discord communities to learn about random desktop Linux things, but I've moved on since then, it was my first real experience with online communities for better or for worse. Additionally, I've been using a few 4chan boards, /g/, /o/ and /vp/ mostly. I own the Alpine Linux unofficial Discord community, which is essentially just a bridge at this point.

    My interests lie with Data Science, and that's where I want to go later on. I also enjoy making silly videos about random things, and collecting semi-vintage Nintendo systems and games (Wii/DS era). Of course I play video games. I had my run-ins with desktop Linux but I tend to just use my Mac Mini these days. I also tend to purchase overrated audio equipment, namely the Audio Technica ATH-M40x, the Philips SHP-9500 and the Shure SE315. I also go on walks often, good way to relax.

    I found out about Tildes thanks to Lionirdeadman, after we had a discussion about 4chan and how valid it's use is for actual discussion. I've been enjoying my time here, even if I mostly lurk. I like how laid back it is over here.

    just anything on an outside server, arxius.io is owned by the creator of IglooIRC, the iOS IRC client I use/test for. Stuff on an outside server probably works fine, I haven't messed with it as I don't have access to income to buy myself a vps. Like others here, I'd probably try NextCloud. I don't think there are any whitelists, I've had some stupid experiments using git with a netlify site and a domain as an imagehost just to see if it works and discord will still embed the images.

    by the way discord allows for other file hosts, even does the embeds for images, for example: this

    Haha, now playing my namesake game: Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii! I'm not that far into it, but I feel like once I got past the intro, I'm having a lot more fun with it. Like many JRPGs, there are a bunch of elements outside of the story for character customization, which usually end up confusing me in some way or another, but I've been told to just ignore most of that for my first play-through and just enjoy the story.

    I mean if you do that, it's just bad on you. We shouldn't be catering to these people, just my opinion.

    I'm not doing the best, but other people are for sure doing worse than I am. I miss having the motivation to do well in school, I'm just able to coast by with minimal effort and still get 100% on my assignments, to me at least, the teachers don't seem to really bother, but that might just be me being cynical. Math is a different story for me, I feel like my teacher cares, probably to get us ready for calculus next year, but I still feel like I'm able to get by without learning anything. I'm going to have to find a way to really soak in new concepts and actually understand them. If it wasn't clear, I'm in High School.
