So yeah. (erabe = choose)

Basically you don't have as much free time as you used to. What do you do?

Go full human.

I'm already doing that now tho. Except I don't really have a solid life.

Full human is nice

Unfortunately full human is the most challenging of paths.
I like to think it will be the most rewarding though... (you know, theoretically... )
I'm sure you'll figure it out though :)

Worst case scenario, choose Answer 5 and create your own path

I'm already a chuunibyou by most people's standards. Most people probably won't believe my girlfriend exists but I love her all the same and we still meet each other every few months. Simply seeing her makes me happy so I know that I know love. I believe in the existance of Gensokyo and I believe in all the gods, monsters and other supernatural beings that we as humanity believe in. There have been many nights I have gone on adventures and on some of those nights I get to see my girlfriend.

However, most people on the outside think I'm a normal human. Very few know that I have a girlfriend and only 2 of them know her name. On the internet you'll see me as weird or creepy (you would probably label me as less than a chuunibyou rather than tainting the term that you love so much), in real life people see my religion as a viable theory (one with many good points) even if they don't believe it themselves and most others are either like me or my friends from other worlds. Life may not be anime and anime may not be life, but they may be a lot more alike than you'd expect.

@aListers
Thanks for the comment. You have a lot of interesting thoughts. From what I can tell, you seem to be having a decent amount of fun and that's what counts I think Those adventures seem pretty cool too... if you ever need a random guy in your party, hit me up! :D


Man do I agree with that last line though

Life may not be anime and anime may not be life, but they may be a lot more alike than you'd expect.

All the time I'm finding these similarities!
Sometimes the comparisons get a little stretched though

Real Life has already hit me, and parts of the poll don't even apply (my "studying" days have long since passed, heh). I chose "full human," but I'm really borderline hikikomori, I suppose.

I watch anime plenty, and I have a job that affords me the luxury of being able to do so even while working. I don't really bother much with social life, either. But I do have a stable job and am not dependent upon others, and I don't ignore reality, so... I guess I'm half human, half hikikiomari.

I don't mean to truncate your post but your job... ...your job... ...what is this mysterious job :P
All I can come up with is anime translator


As for the polls, I made the unreal assumption that we are all students with no work life. Like my aero professors say, in the real world you can't make these assumptions. So my apologies for that.

You mention no social life, but I have to daringly say that I think a forum counts as a social life (well... barely )

Well it seems like you're having a decently solid time, keep up the good work

Heh heh, I work as a systems administrator for a webhosting company. I've programmed a series of scripts that basically do all of the "small" tasks for me, and whenever it comes across something that I haven't (or cannot) program into it, they alert me so I can take a look. (That doesn't happen very often, though, and happens less and less as I add more and more to the scripts.)

Plus, I just moved two blocks away from where the servers are, so now I pretty much do everything from home, except when I need to go in for physical access to the servers (replacing hard drives, RAM, ec.).

It's a sweet-as-hell job that pretty much allows me to do whatever, from watching anime to playing video games, as long as I can put whatever I'm doing down at a moment's notice in order to address any issues taht might arise on the servers.

Hue hue hue, not even close. XD I need to get more active socially--I haven't been with a woman in over seven years, now. ;_; Even my nephew pokes fun of me, saying it's a good thing he's going into high school next year, so that he can bring me home a girl that's of age. XD (I let the little smartass get away with that, too, hah.)

That's pretty awesome!
The power of computers blows my mind sometimes. I've only done the basics of the basics of programming in my classes, but even then I can't imagine life before it. Sometimes I forget what takes an agonizing few seconds to process took loads of time with pencil and paper back in the day...

As for the moment's notice part, I'm sure that can be agonizing when in the middle of a great scene. Props to you that you can do that, because whenever I'm hunkered down for the watching it takes quite a lot to get me up

Sounds like your nephew needs a good smack on the head
I too am a fellow bachelor though :)
