Super Better

6 posts in this topic

So here is a TedTalk about a woman who is also a game designer, who got post concussion syndrome and turned her recovery into a game. I went into it thinking that it was probably going to be really dumb, and at the start of the video I sort of hated her voice and hated her for being so cheery (I must be PMSing because I'm really usually quite cheery myself and certainly not this full of hate hahahah)

 

Anyhow, in the end she won me over and made me smile and I think I'm going to try this absolutely ridiculous game called superbetter.

This was really interesting, and it kept my attention the whole time, which not much does for 20 minutes straight.

My friend introduced me to this back in September, its pretty cool, but I have kinda slacked off on playing with it. She showed it to me because it helped her with her anxiety.

I'm trying to think of good powerups, I really like the idea of that. The past few days I've been using hugging my dog, and going into the bathroom and taking breaks. The former one is actually really handy for me, to just have alone time breaks if I'm in a really social setting.

      Ok.. So, we all know there is no creative type of mind that compares to those of us fighting our way through the colossal lemons life often throws our way. 
      So here's our chance to collectively hone that gift and make some delicious lemonade to share for those who may need a laugh today.
      Jeff Foxworthy made his name with one simple line.. "You might be a redneck if.." 
      Let's modify that.
      You might be mentally ill if..
      Here are the only rules. Have fun. Be respectful. Enjoy.
      I will start with a couple to set the mood.

      My boyfriend and I are going to Dallas 4/28 ( technically 4/29 because it will be midnight when we leave probably ) and returning 5/1. We're wondering if anyone in Dallas, or who might have been there could suggest some fun things to do? We're also on a budget, so some decent priced things. Especially things for couples. So far we're going to the holocaust museum - I have German blood in me, and my family were those who took part in hiding Jews. The Speedzone, for their arcade and Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. We are open minded in our relationship - in regards to our sexuality and sex life. We would love to do something together in the adult scene if you will. If you have a suggestion in that area and don't feel comfortable commenting it please message it to me. Like strip clubs, adult stores, etc. Bars, nightclubs, other adult only places. We also wanna know some good places like for swimming that might be open? Good priced hotels? I have Expedia, so if I can find it there even better. Arcades, fun places, good places to eat. I know locals have really good suggestions on places to eat that aren't listed like locally owned resturants too. We're not opposed to travelling throughout Dallas/FW area. Grand Prairie, etc. Ripley's is in GP. I'm 20 and he's 42, I can't drink but he'll probably get me some drinks while we're there. We just wanna have fun. This is our first trip together, and we wanna make the best of it! Also, please no one flip out over my asking of "adult" suggestions, we're all adults here - I think at least, so be mature about it. I didn't say anything explicit, imo, so.

      Like the rest of y'all, I've had to suffer through AD/HD probably since at least the age of 5.
       
      But there can be a humorous side to it, I hope.  I wrote this parody of a recent hit song and hope nobody gets offended.

      My hair stripped of it's (natural) brown pigment, so I was kind of very blonde, and then "stained" it coral. Stain doesn't last as long, but he mixed up some stain for me to take home to do touch ups!
