The process that I have for writing papers is one I like, and it’s sort of developed over time.
It begins with starting writing the paper, which can be very tough. I usually get about a page and a half done, and then go watch a youtube video until I feel the stress dissipate, which usually isn’t much to begin with.
Then I do another page and a half, and watch another 5-10 mins of videos, which are usually comedic in nature.
I find this makes writing large papers easier and less stressful, while giving me something to periodically look forward to when writing. Sort of just being intermittently given a reward for doing what you’re supposed to do.
It works very well.
But if all VGM was orchestrated, how could we appreciate gems like your post of SA!With Eyes Blazing, with nothing to contrast them against?
The answer is, of course, to make it even more orchestrated.
Add more instruments and make it even more complex.
As much as I love Etrian Odyssey: Untold, this version of this song and the super arrange of The End of Raging Winds are probably the best songs for video game music I’ve ever heard.
Why can’t all video game music be orchestrated?
Today was a bad day.
Tomorrow’s going to be worse. Four pages of writing after I finish the reading I need to do for it.
Then it’s nonstop writing until sunday.
It also doesn’t help that Kiki moved out of my town not too long ago. She gave me her picture but still.
I hope things pick up soon.
This is why I love Atlus’ games. The music.
Oh god the music.
Seaside - whenever you stroll along with me I’m merely contemplating what you feel inside - ooh ooh ooh Meanwhile I ask you to be my clementine You say you will if you could but you can’t I love you madly Let my imagination run away with you gladly A brand new angle - highly commendable

What a shit day.
Leg cramps up so hard I can’t move it and I need to rest for most of the day.
I get deferred from my old plasma donation place permanently so I can never go there ever again.
And I’m realizing how many classes I’m going to take and how much money I need to save up for this summer.
I sometimes feel like the biggest problem I have is realizing what things are really important and how to deal with them.
I sometimes wish I could tell when to act on something and when to not act on something. And then what I should do about it.
Sometimes I feel like I’m making the right decision in the moment and then I realize where the errors are.
But that’s life right? You make errors, you make right decisions, and just hope you’re doing whats best for yourself and others.
