I've started noticing that I care more about visual aesthetics than I thought. Whether that's a good or a bad thing, I don't know, but it's interesting for sure. Especially since, lately, I've been wondering about just what the hell is going on with my drawings, because I... Don't really draw much. I try to, but it's not as easy as it was before last year's summer or so; when I do draw, I just don't think it looks very good and so I never upload anything. So yeah.

Anyway, like I said, visual aesthetics matter a lot to me, I think. I mean, most people who follow my tumblr probably know that I really like languages, right? Well, my favourite part is writing systems, because a lot of them just look really, really cool. All of my favourite languages either have a really cool writing system (Arabic, Japanese, Old Norse, Chinese, Georgian, Ainu, Mongolian, Manchu, etc.) or look really cool when written in the Latin alphabet (Finnish, Old Norse, Babylonian, Classical Latin, Nahuatl, Old English, Quechua, Middle Egyptian, Coptic, Maltese, Basque, Old Prussian...). It's quite seldom that I like a language based on its grammar, and even more so based on what it sounds like; the only examples that I can think of are Welsh and Polish.

This even goes for relatively non-visual things like programming languages! I much prefer the design of Python and Ruby to, say, JavaScript and HTML.

I don't know what the point of this was anymore, but yeah.
