The Fable

I finally found the song I'd been searching for! I'd heard it a number of times in the past. It's a Chinese song called 寓言 ("The Fable") with a tune that sounds like "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen". I wasn't even searching for it at the time. I was just looking for other songs I was in the mood for. I thought about the song "Over The Rainbow" and remembered there was a version I particularly liked. I found the one sung by 弡韢梡 (Angela Chang, sometimes spelled Zhang) on Spotify. She's a Taiwanese singer and actress. I love her voice and she does so well with this song. Her English is perfect. However, it was the next song on the album that really got me excited. And the lyrics are better than I had assumed they'd be. Here's an English translation after running them through Google Translate. I wandered into this lively street The sun made me a little tired It’s weird that I’ve loved broken thoughts recently, but I think I DON’T CARE

Raven

I needed to switch out my Christmas pfp and decided to go with a piece from ZED called Raven . She has a bit of a somber look, but I suppose that's just how I feel overall recently. Though that's not to say that I haven't had some bright points come up.

First game after returning to Mobile Legends

Image
So I played my first game of Mobile Legends after returning to it recently. It was a Rank game and I picked Lolita, of course. It took a short time to get use to playing again, but then got better. My team won and I got MVP with a rating of 10.0! πŸ™‚ I was absolutely elated. I do hope to get a chance to play again soon. Looked like the season is ending in a day or so. Maybe I can climb the ranks next season. Yesterday I had accidentally invited Vulgard to my squad after adding him as a friend in the game. They don't even ask for confirmation when you push the little squad invite icon wondering what it's for. So silly. Anyway, Vulgard decided to accept the invite anyway since he'd been wanting to complete the task on joining a squad. Haha, I get confused now about whether I already wrote something in a blog post or if it was in the new journal app I've been using. I was intending to eventually transfer some things I've written from there to blog posts. I find it easie

Past midnight, but still writing this for Tuesday πŸ™‚ Just found out that Vulgard plays Mobile Legends! Find this so surreal to discover Now I'm even more tempted to return Even though we may not be able to team up for serious play because of distance Received my new laptop Going to take some time to set up Look forward to using it Delayed getting new laptop for too long

Changing my profile pic to a Christmas themed one. This was one titled Miley Claus from an artist called Rossdraws . I think she is one of his original characters and appears in a number of his works.

Warbreaker

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I finished reading Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. He continues to amaze me with his stories. This was another fascinating world in the Cosmere. And even when I think I understand how the characters might change or how events will likely turn out, he always finds a way to completely surprise me yet make me feel that it was how it should be. Also, again, the moral questions presented by the characters feel so relevant to me.
