What is your all-time favourite medium?

The Ecosystem You Can’t Escape From
These are some of my thoughts about the Apple ecosystem that has been built over the past decade.

The difference between hearing Erik and my thoughts.
It's like when other people talk to you but in my head. Yeah I sound schizo but let me try to explain the best I can. When I began hearing him, I thought I was losing my mind until he would say things would happen and he was right every single time. Especially on things I had no control over which was annoying AF because what's the point telling me if I can't do anything about? Well I realized it was to prove to me I'm not entirely as crazy as I think I am.
I could be minding my own business and I hear him say something like a line of a song as if someone else is. It would take me a minute or until I Google the words to understand what he's saying.
It's similar to how you remember a song or a line. Only I know or feel the difference so to you it sounds the same, because you're on the outside looking in. Usually I can tell the difference between my thoughts and him talking to me. I can get a song stuck in my head but it's not always him feeding me a line. How I can tell is how I feel when I receive it. To describe what I feel is hard.
So I guess it's not as easy as I thought to explain this.
He told me I would become homeless. At first I thought it was anxiety but honestly I had no real control over it. I had nowhere to go. Literally became homeless just a few months later. Of course I didn't realize it at the time because so much was happening.
People say ignorant things like:
If your psychic, wouldn't you have been able to prevent ______?
Not all the time! There are things well out of our control and we are forced to experience shitty shit because it's part of our path. I had no fucking control over my situation because it was part of my path. Trust me, if I had a choice over dealing with hardship, I would have tried, but being homeless proved to be a blessing too! I got to travel and meet interesting people. I even moved clear across the country by myself. Also lived through very eventful and scary situations but I survived when I thought I wouldn't.
A lot of the times, my thoughts are negative or pessimistic.
Erik is always uplifting me and reminding me that I'm beautiful, smart and talented. I usually know it's him because I feel it. It's like a warm wave that makes you feel all nice. I noticed that when I began to hear him because I asked for a sign to help me tell the difference. That's another way I can tell it's him and not my own thoughts.
I hope that I explained this right.
Trust me, as someone who was a skeptic, it's hard to believe in this shit. So I totally understand how some people feel. Now that I'm experiencing this I have a wider understanding and feel kind of like an asshoke for making fun of people like me. My drs think I'm pretty insightful and inspite of all of this, I have a good head on my shoulders. I ask questions and formulate my own oppinions. I don't force people to agree with them. I honestly don't give a fuck. All that matters to me is that in some way I'm helping people.
This is one of those things you won't ever understand until it happens to you. If it weren't for other things that happened to prove I'm not fucking insane I wouldn't be here writing about this. To me it feels wild to go from not believing entirely in the supernatural or God and here I am, doing it. I've lived a remarkable life and I'm thankful for all the experiences I've had.
😘💕 I love yall!
something that i feel isnt always translated well to english from japanese is when a character says something really horrible, like, for instance, that they’re going to violently murder someone, but say it using the extremely polite form to say it.

re: that last post i'd like to add on that the problem of jargon and "everyone should be able to understand/if a random layman can't understand it, then it's bad writing" also gets weird when it comes to the classroom. like, it is WILD how often we (students) are expected to engage with scholarship written by and for people with years of school and reading under their belts without necessary annotation or contextualization! But in that case, the problem is not that it was written in an deliberately obfuscatory manner (usually, though depending on the text that might be intentional or the effect of bad editors not forcing greater clarity), but that you didn't get the further resources needed to unpack what was being said.
like, a while back someone on twitter shared the course description for a junior/senior level university english class and complained that he didn't understand it, so therefore english classes were bad and elitist (and buddy, if you think that's elitism, then you've never met an R1 or ivy grad student). so i read the course description and it made perfect sense to me b/c i know what austinian performatives, speech acts, and narratology are. and to make matters more interesting, the guy's mentions were filled with people helpfully defining the terms for him! but he doubled down, angry that they might confuse people who would take the class (english majors at a prestigious university who would at least know what 2/3 of those terms mean or learn by the end of the course) and make it impossible for someone without a background in english to take it (non-english majors or people uninterested in how novels functioned as performatives in victorian society). and at that point it's like, sorry you lack the intellectual curiosity to ask/accept help understanding difficult concepts b/c you have only anti-intellectual indignance in abundance?

Fortunately, Vlad was not willing to put up with the Angry Blobs of Doom and noped out of there as soon as Eric came outside. At least he doesn’t have to test the effectiveness of his garlic braid! And the angry blobs were content to just fly around outside, so Eric didn’t have to worry about them too much either. All bark and no bite, those things!
However, I do want to appease as many specters as possible, and Eric needed a new goal in life. So I decided to have him play around with some stuff from another stuff pack I haven’t really used yet -- Nifty Knitting! Yes, Eric’s new desire is to become Lord of the Knits, making all the knitted stuff to share with his new friends. So while Guidry set about making quite a lot of unnecessary cake (seriously -- our ghostly friend was constantly either baking cakes or taking out the ingredients for them and then abandoning them), Eric knitted up his very first beanie and presented it to one of the happier specters as a gift.
And, once again, was told it was crap. Well. Fine then. Eric promptly teamed up with Guidry to do another ceremony and show these specters what-for! I don’t know if it did actually show the specters anything, but it certainly did get Eric’s Medium skill up -- all the way to level 3, nice. :) I left it with him clearing out some twisty little tendrils from outside his door -- next time, we’ll see if he manages anything more exciting in his life! Yes, who knew the guy living in the literal haunted house would be having so chill an existence. . .

You know, I watch video game YouTube and BookTube and things like that, and I think “wow it’d be fun to do some rambling about the things I love like that,” but then I remember I’m a 40+ woman who is overweight and not entirely photogenic, and that video is not my medium in any way.
... which probably means I should get to starting that podcast, because at least my voice is semi-okay. *shrug*

Day 3 of this round of Newcrest Adventures, and Eric Embers is starting to adapt to living in a haunted house! At the very least, he’s learned how to get some sleep while the specters are spectering, so. . .progress? *shrug* At any rate, he managed to top up his energy, mop up the mysterious symbols (and the water from the sink that broke -- unsure if that was just bad luck or that angry specter from last time), get some breakfast and some TV in --
And then Vaughn, a random guy he knows, just kinda -- showed up. For no reason. Eric and I were equally confused, especially when I couldn’t find the “send home” option on him. O.o Damn NPCs. . .fortunately, he wasn’t actually getting in Eric’s way either (just standing around in the living area), so I had Eric finish his food and attempt another ceremony instead of worrying about the intruder. This one went MUCH better -- sure, the lights flickered, but at least Eric’s new medium powers didn’t sputter out three-quarters of the way through! It also gave Vaughn a bit of a spook -- Eric reassured him that he was well on his way to becoming a proper Paranormal Investigator (complete with a badge -- feel like that shouldn’t unlock until you’ve got, you know, the LICENSE, but Eric was a Detective before, so maybe he just repurposed an old badge), and THEN finally got the option to tell him to shoo. XD About time. . .
After that, I ended up devoting most of Eric’s day to his own reflection -- dude had some Charisma skill to finish building up, after all! And, happily, after hours upon hours of talking, he finally did it! Level 10, maxed out, Friend of the World aspiration finally completed! :D
Just in time for Vlad AND two very angry little specter blobs to show up outside the front door! Apparently the game REALLY wanted me to do things other than just skill up. . .
