This is the third new game I’ve started for Lightning Returns and I’m still not sure I’ll finish the main quests within the time limit.
Why would you give an entire game a time limit?

You’re serious? Are you playing on hard or something?

I can finish the main quests in…

Really though some side quests aren’t even available until later on, so save them for later. :P
Start with Luxerion, but when Hope says you should spend time somewhere else for a bit, go to Yusnaan and start the main quest. When you start the new day at 6am, go to the Wildlands and start there, an hope you picked up some extra stuff in your previous play through to heal your Chocobo, but go back to Yusnaan at 6pm for the sneak-in. After all that a new day should start, and you should go to the Wildlands and start those main quests (do more side quests for Cardesia/13/Sarala/Dr.Sheep/that chick in the yellow dress in the research camp, or find Yuel’s flowers if your Chocobo isn’t healed enough to fly long distances.) after 6pm head back to Luxerion and find the shadow numbers/OR if you’re strong enough, go there at midnight and fight your way into the Children’s gathering. New day, finish up the temple Wildlands quest, then head to dead dunes, start the main quest. You should have at least a few days left.

Helpful advice, thank you! :) especially since I’ve heard that most of the bosses actually get harder to beat the longer you wait to fight them.
I played through XIII again and went straight onto XIII-2 right before starting this. I didn’t have even close to this much trouble beating them either. I think it’s really just the time management I can’t get the hang of.

It really is all in the time management. It took me 11 days my first play through but I got the hang of it. I always do Dead Dunes last. After day 5 the bosses get harder, after day 9 Snow is doubled the difficulty. oAo so it’s best to get through the main quests as quick as possible.

Did u just do ALL the side quests that don’t have to do with the main ones after you finished the main?

I can finish the main quests in 3-4 days, 5 if I’m on hard. You need to manage your time well, don’t just do one main quest at a time.

I’m just playing normal. The problem is I’m apparently really bad at time management. I keep getting distracted by the side quests, honestly ^^;;
I think, “Oh, it’s just one star, this’ll take no time at all” and that’s…not really true when I do 5 of them.

i just learned that british photographer harry pointer made a lot of captioned photographs of cats in various situations in the late 19th century

look at this

the lolcat is over a century old

See, now if I really wanted to rake in the ~art history blog scam cash~, I’d make a site full of these and smother it in ads. XD

P.S. lolcats are way older than a century:

The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.

Science Needs Women: 
For Women in Science; the L’Oreal Foundation 

I’m sharing this video on any platform I can because when I first found it last week it had something like 1,400 views, but it’s the most beautifully produced and succinctly narrated video addressing some of the most complicated issues facing women in STE(A)M fields I’ve found yet. 

I’m sharing this for every time I’m called a “feminazi.”

…for every time I’m told that my concerns aren’t valid, our that our issues are imagined.

…for every time I hear “women just don’t like science,” or worse - “women just aren’t good at science.”

…for every time we’re told that we can have a family or a career, but not both - and for every time we feel like we have to decide between the two.

…for every time a study comes out saying as many as 64% of women endure sexual harassment during field work

…for the fact that women earn 41% of PhD’s in STEM fields, but make up only 28% of tenure-track faculty in those fields.

…and because we need more women mentors in these fields to stand up for issues that are not “women’s issues” - these are people issues that affect our collective society as a whole.

The women in this video are my heroes and they should be your heroes, too.
