i went to a box tournament today!

i played a pretty basic hisuian zoroark VSTAR deck, and bricked so hard i went 1-2. my one win was a bye, so its only a win by technicality... a win is a win though!!

being a box tournament i still got a load of packs even for getting 5th out of 5 people. and guess what i pulled !!!

full alt art miriam!!!

not only is this a personal chase card for me, its useful in the TCG and the single most expensive card in the set at over $100 USD

i'm still shaking, not gonna lie.

i went to locals today after a hot minute!

for those unaware, i am fairly active in my cities pokemonTCG scene. i am part of a local team, and i show up to events whenever i can! today i went to locals at a card shop that has recently partnered with play! pokemon in order to do official events.

it was quite last minute, so i only had my mewtwo lunatone deck ready, but you know what?! i won!

after the tournament, everyone was asking how i won over decks like lost box or zoroark... wanna know what i told them?

ha! wouldn't that be really funny if i actually topped locals in 2023 with mewtwo?? not a chance.

not all of that was a lie, though. i really am active in my local PTCG scene! in fact, i'm working on a deck right now to take to locals next week! :p

maybe i'll add a PTCG section to my pokemon shrine... i'd love more people to get into PTCG!

everything happens so much.

last night, the right wheel on my wheelchair exploded. the tire popped (seemingly from accidental overfilling), and took the plastic shell with it somehow?!

if you know anything about wheelchairs, that basically means that whole tire is un-usable. good thing i have a spare set of wheels, right?

right? :)

the spares actually go to my old wheelchair that we donated after getting my new one.

i quite literally almost fell out of my chair today because one of the wheels was nearly out of the axel. yaaaaaay.

we are trying to contact the service department of my wheelchair manufacturer but it isn't going too well. i swear these people are slower than the DMV.

on the bright side, my
"めざせ!あこがれのわたし プリキュアミラーパッド!オールスター"
arrived today in the mail! i preordered it a hot minute ago, thought it was going to come out in february with the release of hirosky but i guess not? there should be a mini-review of it up on my pretty cure shrine about the same time as this blog goes up. it's quite cute :)

recently, i remembered an incredibly old "game" i used to play when i was 12. i played it quite a lot, which you'll soon find out is pretty weird.

it is a vocaloid-themed chat program called "miku miku online." you can play as miku, rin, len, and haku (if you know who haku is, you deserve a cookie). the map is a really shoddily put together 3D facsimile of a run down japanese town. you can also play as a "dummy" that is just a vaguely person-shaped black blob.

kinda creepy, right?? well, it gets "better"

this game has no central servers. they're completely locally hosted, so you have to know which IPs to use to connect. this game can also be run offline by just putting in the loopback address (, which is how i played it. you can also apparently use other MMD models, but i still don't know how to do that.

i also have the server program this was meant to be run with, so i very well could start one, if anyone is interested ...

welcome to the new sub-section of my site! it's not really as pretty or put together as the rest of moonview, but that serves a purpose.

this section, called "daily life" (by me, i call it that) is just basically, my new blog, writing (creative or otherwise) & photo hub! i'm planning a bit of a major re-design of moonview over the summer once i have more free time to brainstorm & code, and i feel that the more simple design/layout of this section of my site will carry over to the rest of it, maybe.

i say "maybe" for all of this because of simply how my brain works. my mental illness(es) is one that loves to distort my sense of who i am as a person, and send me into dissociative spirals due to it. it sucks but i just have to do the best i can to get back to "normal." a big part of this manifests as feeling like i need to "redo" things to fit who i think i am at any given moment, and its one of the hardest urges to curb whenever i get it..

so far, my best way to cope with this is to just completely ignore everything about my online presence and act like it doesn't exist. ☆~(ゝ。∂)
