My barber is a fan of both Zelda (pre-BotW) and Pokémon.
I spoke to him instead of just awkwardly sitting there as I usually do.
This phrasing is funny to me. What does “pre-botw” mean??? Does it mean he hasn’t played it yet or does it mean he hates it so much that he thinks Zelda was better before it???

I think he means he was into the series before BotW was released--which BotW attacted a lot of non-fans of the Zelda series because of it being open-world.

Exactly what Satan said.
He has got BotW, but he hasn’t long started it.

ever since i was a kid, my sister always teased me for being physically weak. it was just her name calling at first, but it turned into exclusions when my dad needed help with things, he'd always go to my sister because i had a reputation as a weakling. im still alienated by this two decades later and its so ****ing humiliating because im not weak anymore! why why does this

my family doesnt take me seriously im useless
You're not useless just because you aren't being used. Your worth is not determined by whether your family use you to perform heavier manual tasks. And it doesn't really matter what they think.

Unless you get the lynel look or display a feat of immense strength you're provably gonna have trouble convincing people to go to you for your strength who previously thought you weak. But why do you want that so bad anyway?

when you're nine years old and only weighed 40 pounds because you had no ****ing appetite is it really surprising that you lacked the stamina to do much at all? but why am i still being held to those standards now? my sister and dad do tasks requiring labor without me because they still think im just deadweight and its really dehumanizing. even when my sister isnt around like when i helped my dad move my grandmas stuff to her nursing home, he only let me move certain things because he doubts me. all im good for is watching other peopel work

It's hard to get rid of that idea of someone when they have always been a certain way. If you met new people they wouldn't hold that opinion of you.

Have you spoken to your dad and sister about this?

Today at my aunt's place, I got to watch my 5 year old cousin. I had my Switch with me and he has too much energy so he was running around being a kid, so I got him to chill out by inviting him over to play my Switch together with me. We played Fire Emblem Warriors first, the first three story chapters. His first pick was to play as Ryoma, then he wanted to be Takumi, and finally Lissa. Then we played Super Mario Odyssey together for a while. All he did was run around the Mushroom Kingdom and New Donk City, but he had a blast. Then I let him play Sonic Mania for a while. He didn't seem to grasp being able to run AND jump at the same time. Kids are fun, man.

University here is much more work than I expected, so many more exams and much more homework than I’m used to back in Australia. Also instead of 3 or 4 classes being full time in Australia, it is 7 classes at my uni here. Gotta just keep pushing through.

I have legit been unable to eat an actual meal and not throw up for the past week. I'm not even nauseous or feeling sick like that. Just a really bad cough.

I just had the weirdest match that leveled me up to S+ in Splat Zones. It started and the beginning intro started to go slow, so I figured there were going to be disconnects. But instead of panning over the stage, the screen went white and when it came back, I was the only person left on my team. And there was only one person left on the other team as well. I thought I was still going to disconnect since usually it's just a matter of time when that happens. I couldn't even shoot the ink rails. But after a few seconds, the match start acting like normal and I held the zone on my own against the other guy pretty easily for a KO.

I don't know what I'm more surprised about - that match or the fact that I ranked up to S+ in Splat Zones, which is my worst ranked mode.
