A riguardo

Hello everyone,

I am an ISTP male in my mid twenties. I have always enjoyed collecting things. As a kid I used to collect coins, pretty rocks and sea shells, expired telephone cards with designs, lego figures, pokemon/yugioh/magic cards, hotwheels, along with some other random things.

Now that I have enough disposable income, it is time to have a figure collection!
...or so I would like to say.

Not really sure what else to add to describe myself, so I will just leave this quote by my gf:

Butcher (6 giorno/i fa) #31101634Currently traveling, nearly 10 packages arriving, 2 of which seem to be on their way back to the sellers (despite me placing two "on hold" requests with usps), yet no response by usps.
You Ms.... You are very correct, keeping up with tracking numbers is a nightmare.
You probably know too well about it since you have many ordered figures as well.

Ah!! I know this situation well! USPS is so bad about hold requests; I hope this doesn't happen to you, but I once had a hold request turn into returned package and then declared lost package after 3 months of no-show. >.> USPS.... I feel obligated to stress over my mail with them now. GOOD LUCK! (๑و•̀ω•́)و

Tracking number apps and a Google spreadsheet are the only way I've been able to maintain sanity. @.@

victorviper (19 giorno/i fa) #30961824View spoilerHide spoilerI did read your comment, and I appreciate the candid response.
That was a very interesting thread to read, even though I readily admit that I still don't quite understand some of the motivations that were expressed. One thing that was clear was that many of the posters were motivated to get tattoos by very strong personal reasons or a very strong desire to assert individuality. One can appreciate such strong passions, but I found myself agreeing with some of the other posters who cautioned about the combination of semi-permanent body modification with elements of popular culture (and in the case of anime, niche popular culture at that).
This could also be simply the perspective of someone in their early 40's versus the perspective of individuals in their 20's (which from looking at the profiles of the posters in that thread, seemed to be the most represented age group). It could also reflect my INTJ view of the world.
Further, it's been well documented that social interactions are influenced by the presence of visible body art, and I would be very interested to know if the individuals with tattoos generally had a world-be-damned mindset, or if there was a very conscious awareness of the fact that body art would potentially influence some interpersonal opportunities, and that was part of some implicit cost-benefit analysis. However, I didn't want to ask that question and throw gasoline on a brush fire :).
Anyway, I appreciated your interesting and candid comment.


Thanks for reading it, I really appreciate that you took time to read my response.

As for your comment, it is very much likely that within your age group, many people will have a similar view on the topic. Tattoos have and will continue being seen, for at least a few more decades, as something inappropriate and related to criminals. Same as wearing revealing clothing was considered indecent and related to prostitution for many years.

The views have slowly been changing, even in Japan where tattoos were used as a form of punishment towards criminals, over the years they have been opening more to the idea of foreigners with tattoos.

I do think that getting a tattoo can have some serious implications, aside from it being permanent. You could get an infection, allergies to the ink. And an awful lot of other things.

I do think that like everything else, there are multiple views to everything. I personally have always enjoyed tattoos since I was a kid, and they were very common in my home country.

But yes, I am sure that many people who get tattoos do it with a "world be damned" kind of mentality, while others may not.

Personality types can be quite important too. I am an ISTP and we tend to live in the moment, worrying for the future as it becomes the present.

I appreciate your comment, and it was great chatting with you!

Butcher (20 giorno/i fa) #30960875I'll get mine removed when I die and nature or fire takes care of my skin as it will do to all of us.
I have a small phrase tattoo on my clavicle that represents the pain I've felt through my life and after my divorce.
I've since then met someone I truly am passionate about, and the tattoo of my past bad experiences feels silly because I no longer feel those bad feelings. However it shows my current self, how my past self felt, and gives me motivation to always work on the task at hand and my relationships with others.
<snip>
Anyways I hope that you read my comment and I hope that I was able to influence your opinion if at least just a little. Anyways I up voted you because it is important to share your thoughts despite them being opposite to others. Being rejected simply for your thoughts can be a difficult thing to deal with in life as an individual, and I think we should all try to relate to each other and see other people's perspectives instead of just quickly judging others, be it with opinions or up/down votes.

Ah yes, locked joints. The bane of unattentive trainers and beginners. That's the one thing I always tell someone when doing the leg press machine, though there're exceptions to locking your elbows or knees.

If you ever become a PT, looking buff isn't really a requirement but it helps. Some of the newer guys I know are a bit on the slim side and they get really self-conscious about their frame. Compensating with a "gimmick" can help though :D You can be THAT guy with the amazing trapezius. You can be THAT GUY with the core. You can be THAT GUY with the turnip calves etc You'll get teased a bit but if you handle it cooly and show people you're reliable at work, you'll be just fine ;)

A 3 minute plank is good.
