My piece of shit computer finally gave up. I knew my screen was flickering and being generally retarded, but I never expected it to just suddenly go black one day. fml. Right now i'm on my mom's computer writing this. fun.

on the bright side, the computer itself still works. I'm hoping to get a monitor or some way to hook up the stupid thing to the TV, but my mom is threatening to not let me use any of my money for myself again. Come this pay day, I don't know if she's gonna take it all or what since I didn't let her take it all last time (because keeping food money is apparently too much to ask).

She keeps going on about how she wants me to be an adult or something, but I'm only 18, and I know good and well that if I were insisting I was an adult and able to take care of myself, she'd say the opposite.

Who says I have to be held to anyone else's standards but my own? I mean, I know I'm a weird kid with abandonment issues to the ceiling and an anxiety problem to match, but I'm a good kid. One day i'll be ready to move out on my own and I will. But with her trying to shove me out, it just makes me dread the day more and more. i'm not against helping her with the bills and whatnot, or even paying 350 bucks a month for rent - I just don't understand why she can't be flexible and stop treating me like a burden or a pest in my own house when all I want to do is please her. is it too much to ask that I pay rent at the end of the month instead of at the beginning so she won't take all my money so I don't have anything to eat at work? Or, hell, that she could even let me buy everything needed to hook my computer up to the tv so I have SOMETHING to do on my one week off?

i just don't even know, you guys. call it first world problems if you want - I certainly am, but there's nothing worse than feeling like your own mom doesn't want you around anymore.

I have a boyfriend that lives South of the border, sadface-and-happyface indeed, so I've PRETTY MUCH got an internet man. Sigh. On the plus side, online interaction seriously isn't the worst thing. And who knows? Could end up as more than an internet crush!

My own feelin's: I have a boyfriend! We've been in a more-than-friends state for a long time, but last night on the phone the term 'dating' came up and now we're dating. He's the gentleman I had feelings for, but 'should not have feelings for' in the past feelings thread. Feels great man. So much happy I don't know what to do with it all!

Damn it that blows, was wondering where ya had been the past couple of days. I know I keep pushing you to tell your mum, and I don't want to be a nag in all this, but a real, serious, sit down and explain your feelings, the situation, your fears and everything else will probably go a long way. Hope to hear from ya soon though, we all miss ya.

I had the best masturbation session last night.

Spoiler'd for graphic details, for those who aren't interested in my methods.

I was just laying in bed, on my stomach, and I got really horny all of a sudden, so I kinda just started humping the mattress a little. Then I shifted my pillow around, so I wasn't smothering myself. Then I brought my fingers down, started having some fun, and actually penetrated a little- I don't always do that- and I actually ended up humping my own hand so hard that I wasn't even consciously moving myself anymore. I was just shaking and when I came it was really fucking awesome. Then I had another by just rubbing at my clit for a while, and I came four times harder than I ever have. It took me two solid minutes to roll over, and my legs were shaky, I was soaked in sweat, and my face was red, and I could hardly breathe.
It was incredible.

The infamous sex toys company Bad Dragon is hiring, so several weeks ago I sent out an application in desperation for a job in this increasingly worrying economy. They asked for character references so I put down two old professors of mine.

I was looking through my sent emails this morning and found that, hilariously, my email system decided that because I copied and pasted those professor's emails to the clipboard, that meant I wanted to email them my cover letter too.

tl,dr;my favorite teachers now know that what I'm doing with my life is desperately vying for a job making horse dildos.

Cycle of life maaaaan. We make money just to cover the necessities most of the time, nothing left for (well, the expensive) hookers and blow.

Or if you're really bad, you're making money to pay back the money you spent when you didn't have money.

Money money money. Glad to hear you're making some, and being responsible et all.

That awkward moment in which an old aquaintance suddenly pops up drunk, via your (possibly brain damaged) Dad. The more awkward moment in which that girl apologizes for being drunk, puts her hands all over you, and is all around plastered. Some stranger just walked up and out their hand to my neck, I'm too tired to be pissing rage at these people. But seriously, Pa, A garage full of people being drunk?

It feels awesome being reminded that you weren't good enough for someone. Despite the fact that I no longer want them at all because they completely disregard my feelings on these issues, it doesn't make it feel any less shitty when they talk to you about girls they'd rather do. It was a lot easier to get over it when I thought you just didn't find black girls attractive at all. Now that I've been told contrary, I get to deal with accepting the fact that I'm inadequate in all areas of my existance. I appreciate it, really.

Doesn't piss me off as much as the guy who fooled around with me when he had girlfriend who was my friend. I don't know why he doesn't get the hint when I ignore him outright that I'm not happy with his shit and nothing has been forgiven. You have no fucking right to continue to flirt with me or talk about me as if you hold any possession over me because that shit I reserve for guys who are actually interested in a relationship and not those who are already in one with my friend.

What a prick. You are too good for him, anon. Way too good. I know it sounds cliche, but there are other fish in the sea, and they aren't all bottom-feeders, I promise. Kick him out of the bowl for the cat to eat.

I don't wanna say I would ever wish an STD on anyone, but if I did, he'd get first dibs on Herpes or chlamydia, or something nasty like that. What an ASSHOLE.

Also, my own feelings on something I just remembered from the 'don't find black girls attractive' bit.
I am not attracted to black men. I don't know why. I just haven't happened to find one that I find sexually attractive.
My friend says this makes me racist. Does it? I don't consider them as somehow lesser to white men in terms of rights, or freedoms, or potential to be good people and do good things in the world, or anything like that. They just don't get my juices flowing, you know?
>> US No. 11132
Previous Anon from before. Thanks for your kind words, guys. I'm presently determined to cut this person out of my life since it seems like they keep using me for emotional support without doing the same for me.


I never thought of not finding someone of a different race attractive as being racist, if that means anything coming from a person of color. I don't think there's any oppression involved by not dating a black person because no one is entitled to sex/relationship with another person. At least that's how I think about it.

Things start to get tricky when like for media, they portray white-standards of beauty onto non-whites. I don't really want to get into a discussion about it, but hopefully these nuggets help with some understanding.
>> US No. 11135
Generally not finding a race hot isn't racist.
Working with that logic, not finding something attractive = hate. Which is stupid.

It's like, I equate it to how I don't find brown eyes appealing. It's just not aesthetically pleasing to me.
>> US No. 11136

I always thought that people who 'didn't find black people attractive' were at the very least subconsciously biased. Which isn't necessarily BAD or uncommon whatsoever. There are a lot of factors in it, really. I don't think it's as clear cut as 'if you don't find black people attractive, you are racist'.
>> CA No. 11137
It's just...I dunno. The black men I have seen excite me about as much as the women I have seen, which is very little, if at all. I don't know if it's the skin colour itself, or just common traits that happen to be seen throughout the race, but there it is.

I feel ya, bro.
I've been really depressed for the past two weeks, rarely leaving home, but when I did, I made sure I took a long walk. It's not as bad as before, at least I'm motivated to do stuff. sorta. kinda. I quit school, since my mom and sister lost their jobs, and I might as well lose the only hope of leaving this place - a flat that's currently rented. My sister forgot to pay some of the bills, and now this case is in court, and she needs to pay court charges. but since she's almost done with renovating the other flat where she's currently in idk if she has the money (renovation cost around 15k)? Even tho the bills for the rented flat were taken from the renting money???
I'm trying to find a job, something might work out soon, I need to lose 5-10kgs (even tho people are telling me that I don't look like I have to - I just... feel... heavy?).
Life is just one big mess right now.
>> US No. 11154
Jumping on the blankwagon here. The past few days, I've just felt sleepy and unmotivated. I guess I'm blaming it on post-con depression, but it's been a week. You'd think I'd be over that by now.

I want to be productive, but I can't drag myself out of bed. Little things upset me. I'm whiny and clingy and it's probably annoying my boyfriend. I'm not depressed so much as just... a big blob of not-fun right now. I keep saying I'm gonna draw but I can't even get the motivation to find my tablet pen.

I can't bear to think about responsibilities right now. I just want to curl up under a rock and stop existing for a while.
>> US No. 11157
Well, where do I start?

I moved in with my boyfriend of FOUR YEARS, only for him to spend his time chatting with other women online, ignoring me, crying on me every time I wanted to go for a walk alone, and being terrible in bed. (Seriously, his 'technique' is to lie there, squeal like some sort of male-to-female Japanese cartoon underage porn star, and refuse to touch me.) Not to mention he refuses to shower on a daily basis and brush his teeth.

So, I got over him. We're still living together, since we're both on the lease and I can't kick him out.

Anyways. I met someone else a year and a half ago. We started as friends, but then I realized that she was everything this man wasn't. She didn't go off on jealous rants about how she'd like to kill my male friends, like he did. She didn't call me eighty-five times over the course of an hour to accuse me of cheating while I was AT THE MOTHER FUCKING GROCERY STORE. She didn't ruin every song, movie, and book I like by trying to force the focus on her.

She's pretty much the gentle, kind-hearted person I thought my ex would be.

So I'm with her now. We've been together for about a month.

My mother threatened to 'come and get me,' as if the fact that I'm her daughter would make my unwilling removal from my house and job 'ethical.'

And, to make it worse, my ex has taken to crying and masturbating loudly late at night. If I could, I'd kick him out, but I am legally not allowed.

Meanwhile, all I want is to be left alone with my lady. She's everything my ex wasn't, and a genuinely good person, and yet, our relationship is 'evil.'

I don't get it. I'm just tired.
>> DE No. 11158

With regard to aesthetic appreciation (or lack thereof) for racial phenotypes, there is no shame in liking what you like, or not liking what you don't. Sexual imprinting is not a conscious process, and fetishes or preferences aren't things you can argue with.
If you go on to objectify specific looking sections of the population (like black people, for example) to the point of discrimination, that's when it counts as racism or other forms of -ism.

TL;DR = No shame in what you like or don't, it's what you do about it.

Personally, I am a nonwhite person who tends to prefer liaisons with white people. And my appreciation for the appearances of black people is solely aesthetic, as opposed to sexual. I chalk it up to where and how I grew up, but I wouldn't call it racism.
>> CA No. 11160
It's probably owing to where I grew up. Never even met a black person until I was eleven. And to this day, I've seen maybe 20 in my whole life.
Ohhh, Caaaanadaaaaa.

But it's not a case of 'I WOULD NEVER FIND A BLACK PERSON ATTRACTIVE', just 'I have not yet found a black person attractive'.
At least sexually speaking. I've met lots of very pretty black women, but I'm not sexually attracted to women, and the black men I've seen just do nothing for me.

You know what I do find attractive for some reason? Skinny as fuck, nerdy white guys. Ever watch Criminal Minds? Slap a pair of glasses on Reid on that show and I would JUMP him.
I don't know why I find them hot, but I do.

Also, new feelings:

After actually thinking about it for a bit, I am certain I have insomnia or something like it. I just can't fall asleep untill I am practically passing out at around 5:30 in the morning.

My little sister is a cunt. I am preparing to permanently relocate all the way across the country to a place I have essentially never been to, and I am depressed and stressed out about it. I genuinely need my parents' help figuring out all the shit I have to take care of. So when I am talking to my parents about what I have to do about all my financial stuff, dealing with my car, finding temporary and permanent housing, getting all my shit moved, etc., my sister has to take over the whole conversation so that she can ask if some job listing she found is okay to apply to. She is also a programmer, so the answer is YES. My parents don't know and I frankly don't care if this or that PHP web shit position is good enough for her. She never bothers to figure her own shit out about ANYTHING. She can't even be bothered to figure out if the dishwasher is dirty or not. This is why she couldn't hack it in grad school. My parents always drop everything to attend to her bullshit too. I guess cause she had a lot of behavioral problems growing up, but just cause I generally appear to have my shit together (read: don't have a flagrant panic attack about every little fucking thing) doesn't mean I do. Maybe I sound like the cunty attention whore here, but I think my current problems are worthy of a little bit more parental attention than her usual bullshit is right now.

Okay, got a case of the emotional runs, so brace yourselves.

RP: My RP partner was having a shitty day, and I made it worse, and I feel like an ass and hate myself.

Tired: I'm finally over my period, but it's left me absolutely exhausted. I just want to sleep, and do nothing but. And, of course, my mother thinks I'm just being dramatic. But I really am fucking wiped.

TF2: My Highlander team has scrim after scrim scheduled, and as a sub, it kind of sucks, because that means our regular practices we just sit there on SourceTV and watch the starting line players play.

Jobs: Went to the local college for information on Medic Admin courses. Costs $11k, but I'd be done in less than a year, and they have 90% employment rate. My mother says she'll pay, but at the same time, I'm not sure it's what I want to do. I really want to get into Stage Management, but I'd almost certainly have to go to school in Ontario, and moving is scary.
Plus, interview after interview after audition, and still nothing in the way of employment.

WUV: I have a crush on someone online, but now I feel like I've missed the boat, and that he doesn't like me anymore. Now I wonder if I really liked him in that way, or if it was just infatuation because of ovulation (you laugh, but women are statistically more likely to fall in love when they're ovulating).

Art: I've been working on a TF2 comic for about a year, and I can't get the work done on it that I want, because I suck ass at drawing and writing, and it feels bad, because I used to be good at those things.

Costco: A box of chips fell on my head and scared me today. And then embarrassed me because I made a very undignified shriek in the middle of Costco.

Summary: I'm not having the best day.

Preparing myself for a great loss. My pet rat of two years, Cookie, has gone ill, and I just noticed today. I don't know how long she's been sick - probably not more that a few days - but it doesn't look good.

I noticed because of her
1)failure to groom herself like a normal, healthy rat should be doing
2) weight loss (she's usually really really fat, but I could feel bones today. She's still about at the weight for a healthy rat her age, but weight loss of any kind is cause for concern.)

I feel so guilty for not being around to notice sooner. Usually, I would have her sleeping on my chest while I'm on the computer, but ever since the screen broke and I've been using the livingroom TV as a replacement screen, that has hasn't been an option. I feel like I've neglected her.

Every bone in my body is telling me to get it over with and just euthanize her right away. The last rat I had contracted pneumonia, and lived with it for months, with me giving her medication and food-paste before I finally pulled the plug. She was a strong fighter, but it just wasn't fair to her. I haven't even seen how bad Cookie's case is, though, and I already want to put her down because I just CANNOT deal with that again.

Fuck, you guys. What do I do?
>> US No. 11168
So guys...I've started writing again! I might never get around to finishing or starting anymore fanfics, but I've found a new passion and inspiration. That inspiration is world peace.

I've recently gotten over my depression, and have been helping it along by communicating everything that ever made me depressed. As I do this, I'll try to be sensitive and rational, and not try to scare anyone off. I don't care if people hate me anymore, either. I love myself, and want other people to love themselves, too. I promise never to be vain, though. Vanity is never okay, but I can't help but feel a little more respect for myself, especially if I change some world and internet views in the process.

I'm loving people even more, even some of the hard-to-love ones, and I hope to help them, too. I'm not trying to troll or anything, and will never bring some of the things I like to TF2chan, if they're against the rules...so don't worry. If you like what I'm writing though, let me know. If not, help me to make my words stronger, just as long as you're constructive, and positive.

I hope you'll continue to be my friends, even if you don't like what I have to say. If you don't, then that's fine. It only means you're not worth my time, and I thank you for helping me to realize that...

I know I gotta get my shit together and stop relying on other people's help because whenever I get comfortable I don't do jack shit and I get stuck there until I'm kicked out.
Every time this happens should be a wake-up call to say HEY I NEED TO KNUCKLE DOWN AND SORT MY SHIT!.. but it ends up repeating over and over and over ad nauseum.
I WANT A JOB AND A HOUSE AND A HEALTHY NON-DEPENDANT LIFESTYLE WHERE I'M NOT SUCKING MONEY OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE'S POCKETS. I feel like utter and complete shit. I can't even get my ass over to the psychiatrist's office to get this shit diagnosed. Fuck, I can't even get out of bed without two caffeine pills and a cup of coffee. Weed/kronic ain't the problem, I haven't had any for about a month and a half now.
I just wish someone could drag me to the mental ward and prescribe me with fucking ritalin or something and say "Okay, I understand you've been kind of a dick. Here, have a comprehensive how-to manual on how to not be a dick."

Where you by a doctor with her already? Maybe it is just a little infect and nothing serious.
But if it is something serious than in my opinion it is the best for your rat if you put her down right away. This is the most mercifull thing for her than letting her suffer more. And she seems to me even if she is not that old, old enough to have lived a nice long rat live. What can i offer on advise for dealing with the death of a beloved pet? Because i recently dealt with my brother and his loose of one of his guinea pigs which he treatens like his children the following:
1. Take your time. Take a day off from anything which may stress you. This day is the day for grief and you should just let out this emotion than. If it is all out, it is easier to let go.
2. Friends help or family. Just be with your friends or with your family and get under people afterwards. If they see you are not good, they help you. It can be also a nice distraction of bad feelings.
3. Funeral service. I made one for my brother. Okay it was just us two meeting up drinking one glass met (his favourite drink) and eating his favourite cake, which i bought for him, but it did help. We said together goodbye to his pet and he knew he wasn´t alone.
4. Pack away everything which may remind you of her. Because you still have the memory of her in your head it wouldn´t help you to see everytime you come in your room her favourite toy as example. I don´t say trow it away, but you should just avoid to get a flick quick reminder of her if you see a certain object.
There will be enough memories of her around your home than.
5. Death is the natural end of life. Your rat wasn´t the youngest anymore and she certainly was a happy one. It is okay to cry for her. It is okay to be shacken up. But never blame yourself for not noticing sooner or anything else. Sometimes it can´t be helped even if it is discovered sooner. Mostly it just prolongs the process of dying.

You gave your rat a good life and you did what was possible to make it so. It will be hard to let go of her, but hang through it. Still i hope for you, it is just a little infect and nothing serious for her.

This a little difficult to talk about. You may have read in the Christmas thread where I dreaded going to my grandmother's house due to an ongoing rift between her and my pregnant cousin. I stated the opinion that she was not fit to be a mother, and it would probably benefit her to give the child up, whether through adoption or abortion.

This week, she had a miscarriage. She was about to her second trimester.

I regret what I have thought and said to others. I've never said anything to my family on the subject because my previous opinion was harsh and cold. I still doubt she would have been any decent as a mother, but perhaps she would have changed or tried to be a better person for this kid. Hell, it deserved a chance with a loving family, even if its mother couldn't provide that.

There is this nasty perspective common in my neck of the woods. You're probably familiar with it. Do good, good things are more likely to happen. Do bad, bad things. I had previously considered the possibility that she would have a miscarriage, and it did not bother me then. After all, she was not taking care of herself. She was also continuing to smoke during her pregnancy. To me, something bad was bound to happen. I thought it was going to be a birth defect, like brain damage or low birth weight. Still, it seemed logical that something bad was bound to happen.

This is what I'm trying to say: she did a lot of bad, awful things. One of them may have caused this miscarriage, but it's not my place to assign one attribute or another as the reason for it. Just because she's a wretch doesn't mean her child had to die.

I don't know what to do now, outside of keeping my head buried in my work and writing. Any action of grieving or sympathy may be considered an offense. I realize how callous I have been, and I feel awful. If I think I'm supposed to be a decent, open-minded Christian, you'd think I'd have a little more mercy and compassion, particularly towards my family. I discovered a nasty part of myself, and I am ashamed.

What happens now? What should I do? Is there anything I can do?

I'm shitting myself. I just checked my phone messages. "Hi there. This is the place where you had an interview back in September. We're wondering if you still are looking for employment?"
So, after spazzing for a few minutes, I called them back, and I'm going in tomorrow to fill out paperwork for a background check and such.

FUCKING. FINALLY. After almost a solid year of searching, I finally have a job.
I'm assuming I'll get it because there's nothing in my background that would tarnish my application. Clean as a whistle I am.

I don't want to worry my friends with my problems, but psychiatry's out of the question (nobody around here will take our insurance) and my parents are of no help at all.

My boyfriend's stuck between a rock and a hard place and I can't help him, and it's really upsetting to us both.

He doesn't have a state ID, nor does he have any money. When he asks his mom to borrow the money for the fee, she tells him to get a job. Which you can't do without a state ID. His mother also "lost" his social security card. He has his birth certificate, but there's a fee for getting a new SS card as well, which... he doesn't have.

He also suffers from anxiety. I drove him to the psychiatrist (which she only let him do because the insurance covered it - and then I drove him) and he was given a prescription which should really help him... but she won't get it for him. She keeps telling him he has to pay for it and go get it himself. Without money, a job or a car.

He's completely willing to get a job, but he can't because she's holding so much from him. Even if he wasn't suffering from panic attacks so bad that he can't even leave his room to pee at night, he can't even get the legal shit together. How do you even "lose" your son's social security card?

I'm helping him the best I can, but I can't afford the fees any more than he can. I'm moving out soon and I'm going to let him stay with me for (mostly) free for a while to get away from his mother (gonna say it - she's a lot of his problems) but he still needs to be able to get a job to pay for his prescription and food and such.

I'm really worried about him. I know getting away from his mother and getting his prescription will really really help him, but she's making it impossible for him, and probably on purpose.

I´m down. Fucking down. I´m down for days now. It isn´t anymore the nice rollercoaster high and down drive. It is just drowing in a goddamn sea of thoughts and feelings and sometimes coming up to get some breaths of air called i don´t feel anything.

I ask myself who i am. If i don´t have any pride anymore. I was ever carefull with which people i talk. Which i tell my true thoughts and share my feelings too. It´s hard for me to open my mouth once and to say to someone: You know i don´t like that. Because usual i just swallow it and bury it, but i´m tired of doing so. I know i hurt people by telling them how i feel. But you know what? If they want truly to know what´s up with me, they shouldn´t later be angry if i tell them the truth. And they deserve the truth. Even if the truth hurts or is ugly or soemthing else. I prefer it over beeing lied to just to get comforted.

I just told two weeks ago the person i tried to please over half of my life that i love them, i´m gratefull for my home and all. But in fact i´m not happy there anymore. I told them all my worries, sorrows and what is going on. Again the theme about: Why did you fear me? came up. because yes i was afraid of them to tell them something very important. Because they judge. Because i want to uphold this image of beeing the good child which never did anything bad or nasty up. Because i grew up under a lot of expectations for me, putting me secretly under pressure. Because it is unfair in so many ways, to be the one who is expected to behave ever good and to hear how others where allowed to make mistakes.

I wasn´t understood as i said i´m not happy anymore. But i didn´t want to be understood, if i myself can barely make out what i feel or how i feel. I just wanted them to know and acknowledge I am not happy at home and it doesn´t feel anymore like home.

We talked, we came to a agrement and now it is better here. Still i´m not eternaly happy here, but i got the feeling like i have control again about my situation.

One point i´m proud of. I did it myself. I myself said: You know what? Fuck the whole i just don´t say what i feel number. No one gave me advise to open my mouth and to say it. Neither friends or family even if they knew how bad i feel here.

Bottomline: You wanna improve your life? Take the lemons and BITE in them. It´s not nice, but it surely is good later.

-My ex is making me feel like shit and I probably deserve it, but godammit I was happy for like a month and then he had to start guilt-tripping me all over the place. Bleh.
-My bff is making me feel like shit because she's jealous that I pay attention to my new man like I never did to my ex. She wants me to give her my undivided attention all the time, yet she'd never ever do the same for me.
-My lappy was out of comission for a couple weeks because I somehow managed to pick up a malware virus on a motherfucking dialup connection. There was so much shit I needed to do, too.
-Mom's nagging at me to get my university app shit in, but I've been without a decent computer for two weeks and haven't been able to. Leave me the fuck alone, I'm capable of getting things done without you harping and on on to me about it every day.
-Said bff is planning on moving to Toronto for an internship for the summer, which completely ruins my last summer before I go off to school. She lives in Ottawa for school already (six hour drive away from me) and if she lives in T.O. (two hours drive, but I don't have a car or parents willing to drive me, so it's equally problematic) in the summer, I'll be miserable. She number of fucks she gives about this is in the negatives.
-My damn phone's speaker is broken.
-I can't go to the MSI concert I wanted to go to in March.
-My grandfather has prostate cancer and might die.
-I don't think I'll have enough money for university by the time I want to go, fffff.

-Next month my boyfriend is coming up to visit me, and I honestly could not be more excited. The notion that I'll be seeing him soon brightens up the darker parts of my mind.
-Got my lappy back today! I missed it sooo much, so glad to have my baby returned to me.
-Made some biggish progress on my Pyro costume today. Dug out two possible suits and bought a couple bottles of red dye. The con's not till May, fff.
-Just need to fix my Gunslinger and I'll be good for my smaller con in March.
-Get to travel to the U.S. to visit my man after the March con. Really really excited, I've only been out of Canada to fly to Florida. Gotta get some Amurrican money. How can I tell what bills are which if they're not colour-coded?!
-Ordered con passes and booked the hotel room for it a week ago and got the room super cheap. $21 per person, for both nights? Yes, I am a boss. And if bitches complain about the twenty-minute walk, maybe they can book the fucking room next year. They'd wait till April and be even further away/pay five times as much.

All the bad stuff is really big and overwhelming, but I try to make the good things (small as they may be) count for as much as I can. I know I'd be a wreck if I didn't have a boyfriend as amazing as I do.

I just feel unwanted lately. Family doesn't help, but it's mostly from my friends.

My parents are clearly getting annoyed with my still living in the house, despite being being in my first year of college, just to start. I can't drive yet (since they refused to let me have lessons until now) and I haven't managed to get any form of job yet, so I don't exactly know what I'm supposed to do about it.

Every time I come downstairs after waking up my parents are already yelling at me to do chores or to just spout off about how much I fail at life. My mom is even starting to blame me for the fact that she texts and drives or does PAPERWORK while driving ON THE HIGHWAY.

Not to mention threats of getting kicked out in the snow are becoming weekly occurrences.

My friends, on the other hand, tend to always have hang out sessions with everybody but me included. I used to ask if I could come over, but everybody always gave off the impression they didn't enjoy having me around, so that sucks.

Sometimes they have these hangouts while streaming games, so I can see and hear everybody but me being there, which pretty much rubs salt in the wound. If I comment nobody notices or seems to care, and when they do they always think what I'm saying is unrelated (not calculating that the stream lags). I've even had a friend threaten to permaban me if I say unrelated stuff any more. It hurts.

On NYE I also had a pair cosplay planned with a friend, and I thought we were driving up together for our costume ball. Apparently there were four other people she'd decided were going in her car instead, and thank GOD two of them were sick or I wouldn't have had a ride! Even after having this pair cosplay planned since September!

And when I do hang out with these people I feel like I can't talk to any of them without bugging them. I even feel bad asking, "Hey, it's been five months since you replied to the RP, could you... do that?" "Ugh I'm so busy though *replies to other people's RPs anyways*", or even just asking "How was your day?" So then I just stay silent, and nobody seems to notice at all.

Honestly, if I didn't have panic attacks thinking about death or the idea of dying I might have tried just ending my life by now. I know people would be sad about it, but at this point it feels like it would be out of guilt and not because they've lost a friend or a child.

I've tried to bring myself to just make myself scarce for a week or so to see if they actually care, but I'm afraid of what will happen if they don't even notice.

I feel like such a child, but I just can't stop being upset about this lately.

Hey, I think I can relate with how you're feeling. I am in a pretty similar situation, and my so-called "best friend" is slowly pushing me away. How about you send me an e-mail?

I hate being alone. Only one of my friends is still talking to me on a regular basis. But at least some of the others are inviting me to things after realizing that the reason I have not been showing up is that no one bothered to tell me about it. Meeting new people is difficult because I don't really do anything. I have 1 class 2 days a week. And I there's not really anything I want to do that is likely to somehow involve other people, at least not that I can afford to do on a regular basis. The main thing is though, I just can't talk to people. I always feel that if I try to say anything to anyone, I would be bothering them. And so I wind up hoping someone will talk to me and start a friendship, or relationship. I know I shouldn't just wait for things to come to me. Even when I did have friends, we only interacted at school, and that's essentially over. And it's not like my track record for relationships is good in the slightest, every single attempt at a decent one ending horribly. I'm not terribly worried about any of this, I am young, there is still much time for things to get better. It's just frustrating, and I am a bit delerious from tired. And lonely, always just me, myself, and I.

Feels good to help a friend of mine who has some psychological problems and physical ones which prevent him of taking every job he may have a qualification for. Not to speak of other things.

Even if it is just an adress for a school where they are specific for people who don´t have the best opportunity to get into the joblife. It is still a bit hope for him. They even have some programms there in which he may be interested.

I'm going to try and articulate this bullshit instead of beating my face bloody against the wall or self medicating for once.
I had a dream a few nights ago in which I destroyed my enemies in a highly exaggerated Viking fashion and when I woke up I felt at peace for once.
THEN I got into a really fucking stupid argument on the Tumblr and allowed a handful of hipster cunts chase me off the damn thing.
I'm having a lot of trouble focusing on my work because of this 'defeat'.
I keep telling myself that if the argument took place in a tactile, person to person setting, it would have ended differently (with me pounding the living shit out of them and taking their stuff as I have done in my younger days).

Relationship has been going really well. He finally got his anti-anxiety meds going, and besides a few minor side effects (and common ones at that; headaches, mostly), they've really been helping him a lot. He hasn't even had that whole 'reduced sex drive' thing, uhuhu.
He used to get panicky just having to order from a restaurant, but now he's striking up conversations with waiters like it's nothing. We've been communicating more, too. Only a week in to his meds! So proud of him.

School's been going well so far, despite me being randomly panicky about it. I have no real reason to be. Just a lot going on all of a sudden. I need to go in for an orientation tomorrow morning (on my birthday, yuck) and go buy art supplies.

Third: If she really likes you turn the whole flirting thing down and get space between the two of you. If she just likes you a bit more than normal it will get over soon without leaving scars.

Don´t: Tell her she will find someone better, she shouldn´t waste her time and so on.

Just say you like her as friend nothing more, you are straight and you are in a relationship.
She may be disappointed about it like the normal disappointed which comes with such things, but it will go over soon and there will be no bad feelings left than.

Questioned my status as an animation/illustration yet again today. Not only is it a very competitive field, I've felt like my work could be 100 times better than what it is now, I just keep getting down where I feel like giving up. But it's not like there's anything else I could do at this point, and I really did work hard to get myself to where I am right now... I'm just very scared of my future.

The troll bait Christianity post below makes me sad and angry and a little bit embarrassed to be a Christian. I hate that that's how everyone sees us. Then again, I wonder if I'm really still considered to be part of them. I write teh gays, after all.

I hate it when crap like that pops up. It makes me start doubting myself, doubting my beliefs, and doubting if there's any hope for anyone I love to be interested and maybe ask me about everything themselves. (Wouldn't bring it up otherwise.) I mean, when that's the main face of Christianity - bursting in when no one wants them to and lecturing about how everything you do is wrong and what they're doing is right... Who WOULD want to be a part of that?

I just hope that everyone understands that... well, it's easy to pick out the crazies and extremists of any group, and Christianity is no exception. Just please don't hate all of us or think all our beliefs are ridiculous because someone who doesn't know what they're talking about or years of bad experiences (overly religious parents, bad churches, bad things that might have happened from someone who was, on the outside, the very picture of all things Christian and godly, etc.) convince you that we're all idiots or all terrible people. Rule #1 of being a Christian (other than accepting Jesus, etc), is to love everyone despite differences or their beliefs.

BTW I had to put down my beloved Cookie yesterday. More on that later - I'm still a bit too shell shocked to talk about what happened in full.

I think folks should adopt a policy of judging individuals that are part of a larger group on an individual basis.

I've met many Christians who are rather tolerant and reasonable folk. And I've met others who were very ignorant and hypocritical.

And that just goes for all groups of people, really. One should never assume that an individuals or a collection of nutjobs represent their group as a whole.

Considering that you would rather people ask you about your beliefs rather than jumping into a group and imposing them on others in an attempt to "convert" folks says a lot about you as a person, so it's all cool, bro.

First of all let me express my sincer sorry to hear of the lose of your beloved pet. I hope that youa re okay.

I know this may a highly risky theme about religion, but i grew up in a environment which says Hey so long you don´t hurt people...
If you believe in it, believe in it.

In my opinion is the religion is part of the integrity of a personscharacter. People died for their religion. People do good in the name of their religion. Religion can be the compass to lead a better live and to be a better person in society.

That you don´t want to have to do something with closedminded christians who force their opinion on others just speaks for you as person.
I mean i don´t want to have something to do with people who run around telling other people: Hey god is just a ficlet of your imagination, stop believing see the true things! Because this isn´t any better than someone who forces their believes on you.
This is the same just in a different color.
Which really get´s me riled up against such peole are that sometimes they didn´t even read the bible. And it is a interesting (if so a strange) book.

I could now rant about it here more, but this is seriously a post which requires a OFFTOPIC thread about a theologic discussion somewhere, which would maybe end in a huge trollfest.

Hey someone up on that?

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your pet. Take your time. I've heard tales of people being unable to talk about putting pets down for months or years. Do what you need to do.

I'd love to read/engage in an extended conversation on people's relationships with various religious individuals. Personally, I have not had a good experience with Christian leaders, but I still consider myself Christian.

More or less, my faith and studies boils down to how fascinating I find Jesus. The guy paid taxes via fish. Not only is that awesome, but pretty funny, too. Love the man; hate his wife.

I love how I can politely challenge racism and privilege and STILL get people to unfollow me in a huff. Even though I tag my posts to block the topic if they wish. Nope, still not enough for some people. Can't deal with me being open about my status as a WoC after I've been shamed to hide it for so long.

This is exactly why I'm not too concerned anymore with being nice or apologetic. Every time I ever brought up the topic it makes some person uncomfortable. And unlike a lot of Tumblrats, I have better understanding of what the issues are, so I'm not needlessly attacking anyone, just the ideas. I've had to deal with those issues for most of my life, and if folks can't deal with me expressing concerns non-aggressively for a couple of posts on the internet, well then, sucks to be them obviously.

A close friend of mine told me that he overheard someone I knew at a con saying "Oh, yeah, I love [my legal name], but I wish she wouldn't play trans." Not sure who it was, besides who they were cosplaying at the time.

My boyfriend is here but I can barely touch him because my parents don't know we're dating.

I just called an ambulance to check up on me. No worries, it's not an emergency, but my health problems are spiraling down into god knows what kinda shit and my mom agreed I should better be safe than sorry. I mean, today, I couldn't even eat a small, dry breadroll without feeling sick. My lady parts also hurt and my back and something in my side but I don't know what it is.
The prospect of maybe having to go to the hospital for examination and stuff makes me very nervous, but I really want this health bullshit to be done with, so I'll rather take the scary hospital over the possibly threatening health issues.

My birthday turned around a lot, but pretty much mostly because of my boyfriend. My party was at the beach, and the weather was actually really nice. Not too hot or cold or windy.

Are birthday presents not a thing people do anymore, though? I mean, I never want to tell people that presents are required, that's a super dick move. And I don't care too much about material possessions. But out of about ten people, only one person gave me something (some REALLY yummy smelling candles), and was also the only person to give me a card. I mean, it's a fair exchange, right? I give you cake and food, is it so much to ask for even a card back? I hate to be that whiny asshole who bitches about not getting enough presents, but it makes me feel a little unappreciated to not even get a card from ten of my friends, y'know?

My boyfriend didn't have the money to buy me anything and was really really apologetic, which was silly since he took me out to dinner the day before my actual birthday last week! But made me a little friendship bracelet in my favorite colors and gave me an owl ring that he already had, because he knows I love birds. At the party, he walked me out to watch the sunset by the water, even though he can't see it himself. He's mildly red-green colorblind, so he can't see the color orange, so he asked me to describe it to him and he seemed happy with how it sounded. We walked along the pier and watched the sun go all the way down, and it was honestly the most gorgeous sunset I've ever seen. We even saw dolphins. It was the most cliche romance movie bullshit ever, and I loved it so much. I always have loved cliche stuff like that, heh.

All in all, a pretty great weekend, thanks to him and a couple of other friends. No matter how unappreciated I feel by other people sometimes, he makes me feel more appreciated than any of them ever would combined.

I've just been angry at a lot of things and I don't know why. Everything annoys me. EVERYTHING. For some reason, it's like I feel like everyone who does something irritating does so SPECIFICALLY to get on my nerves. Usually, I just ignore the feeling until I'm feeling more pleasant, but tonight, I even got a little snippy with my friend.

She was being dumb and using the letter "w" as a sign of laughter for some reason (she does stuff like that all the time), and I was like ODSFJGNOI FD JUST STOP OKAY NO ONE DOES THAT -GOD- WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO -WEIRD-."

Thankfully, she took it as a joke, so no feelings were hurt, but I said I was sorry anyways. I feel like such a douchenozzle I just can't euuurgh.

Okay so a friend of mine who will visit me soon (summer lol) will come and i love her that much that i went with a scissor on my beloved and high holdedup hibiscus. I have that thing for years and i´m so goddamn proud how beautifull it became with a bit care in the last summer. Dark strong green leaves, where lush slightly yellow where there. Hundred of leaves and branches where in the past was just two strong out build with a few on top. Really it was a sad example for his kind. But alas what some controlled sun for the days and a regular therapy with a spray bottle filled with camille tea can do (Because some insects where on it, too. Needed to wash them away with a soft cloth).

I love that plant and therefore i planed to make a little scion for her, because we love both love plants and flowers. Now i´m a bit worried because usually they say i need to do that later in the year to get a good result, but i´m staying positive, because my hibiscus ever blossoms early.

Wish me luck on my little project.

I find myself yearning over a guy. I am obvious. I ask to hug him, I lean on his shoulder when we’re programming together. But he’s just “Eh, and he complains about it” Then he’ll hug me out of the blue, or put his head on my lap, or sleep on me during road trips.

I really like him but I don’t want a boyfriend, so I’ve been trying to ignore him. My marks are down and my last relationship was kinda crap, and he’s really immature so I just have no idea what I’m doing.

And yet I find myself baking more often and giving him cookies.

Ill be honest with you Channy baby, Donny ain't feelin too hot right now, you can tell Donny don't feel too good when he speaks in third person, dead give away.

Its just... I feel done, gone even, people I cared for don't care, old friends never talk, close friends don't either, I have some close people I can still talk to and tell them how much I care and feel happy that they understand but they are so far away sometimes, and even the ones a short journey away are hardly ever there.

Then when I think of them I get upset, thinking of the old times and how so easily people drifted away and just stopped caring, and its getting to the point where I just don't want to be here, or there, or any where, I just want to be no where and feel nothing.Its the same fucking cycle over and over and I just can't keep making new friends each time, I can't force myself to keep caring for these new friends only to see them fuck off again with out a care for me. It makes me want to break everything around me and shout for someone here to look at me, just for once fucking see how much trouble I am in. Im drowning, Im falling off a cliff, Ive got a gun to my fucking head but Im trying to cover it up with a smile and a "How are you?"

I've been working so hard the last 2 months. Since I was told I was misdiagnosed with the tumor I've been angry but also driven. If I can deal with my feelings of mortality I can now deal with how I dealt with those feelings and others since I was 8.

I'm done hiding and sneaking food, I'm done feeling so ashamed that I couldn't eat in front of others. And I'm done binging and hating myself.

In October I was a size 30 and struggled to stand while doing basic things like dishes. Now as of today I'm down over 16 inches, eating a very balanced diet and exercising 6 days a week and have gotten down to a loose size 24.

And I have no plans of stopping this loss. I know I can do this because I don't need it as a crutch. And it's a crutch I needed for my past, but the past is done and I'm done.

I also got accepted into an exclusive art school for next September. And I don't think I'd have even tried to get in in October because it was a pain enough to get up the stairs let alone out to get my artwork judged.

I can say honestly I'm happier than I've been since I was 5. And I'm so grateful to have a boyfriend who loves me fat or thin and always makes me feel beautiful.

My partner is moving away and as such I'm living with my parents for a few weeks until the new flat opens up. Usually, I get on very well with my family. My friends are often envious about how chummy we are.

But deep down I think something horrible is going to happen. My mother will find my ADHD medication and bin it, or dismiss me as 'making it up'. My problem drinking will come back now no one is there to be angry at me for it, and I'll start to self-harm again out of frustration. And I'll become more and more aggressive to anyone who tries to help, which is why I never tell anyone about my problems. I become a pretty nasty piece of work when someone digs that deep.

Or none of that will happen and I'll be fine! Hopefully me and my mother will get drunk and if I cry I can blame it on the gin.

I just say waking up with a cramping stomach, neither keeping water or tea by you. Let alone a bit of food and all and not getting sleep, because of a headache which came from the dehydration let me feel as i stood up today like i would die or at least fall over.
The last tme i felt that bad i had a heavy bronchitis where i had around 42°C fever. Here i didn´t have anything of it. Tipp: Nothing which could negatory influent your circulatoury system, should be done than like sport or bathing. Especially bathing. Horrible new experience which i made.

I was by my doctor than, beause i decided in generell of a problem which became almost chronic to go there. She said maybe it is stress or someting else. Now i will get x-ray and they took already a bloodsample of me.

But surprisingly i feel a lot better today. No fever feeling, no stomach cramps or sickness or anything else. I feel peachy. The wonder of the ability to drink water and to eat something again.

All in all: Yesterday wasn´t a fun day. Today looks brigther.

Valentine's Day is just a holiday that takes advantage of women's insecurities and gives men a dopey reason to be nice to their mates and so they can make up for the bullshit they pull out of their asses.

On another note, one of my loyal pets died today.

I should carry around a bit of paper or something with my tripcode on it so when I want to post on the chan on another computer I can put my tripcode in my name BUT ANYWAY

Some serious shit went down in one of the YWCA's on Monday. I was just making myself a coffee, came out and sat down in the main 'living room' area, and suddenly everyone heard a load of unholy screaming. A minute later one of the staff members was like "OKAY everyone outside please, now, right now get out right fucking now"
And later on we were told that a girl had been seriously beaten up by her sister/friend/gang-sister because she couldn't supply her with drugs (dunno what drugs, but I doubt it was aspirin. Or even pot. Something like cocaine I'm guessing). Like I mean, seriously injured. Compound fracture to her leg, head split open (you could stick your finger in there, you could see her brain), broken ribs, the whole shebang. About five minutes later four ambos and three cop cars pulled up, and the channel 9 news crew (which we were NOT happy about, if this incident goes to the general media, the YWCA runs risk of getting permanently shut down).
So that was my Monday afternoon.

Yesterday was Valentine's day though, and I went over to Ryojin's place and bought him some chocolates and candies :3 and then we fucked and it was good.

It's been a week and a half at my new job now. It's been a comedy of errors and everyone's pretty cool, but it's starting to sink in how utterly alone I am out here. All of my closest friends are on the other side of the country and/or too busy with their significant others to talk to me. Time differences are ruining absolutely everything.

I still have a crush on that cosplayer from the other side of the world because I am an idiot. The time zones fucking everything up is no exception here.

If I get get my hands on my sweetheart abusive soon-to-be-ex, he's a dead man.

She's crying, right now, because she "didn't play TF2 right" (his words) and he's threatening to beat her. AGAIN.

It's a fucking game. He completely loses his shit if she does ANYTHING in-game that isn't to his expectations.

Not to mention the fact that he's turned all of her RP characters into sexy, 'kawii-desu NE~" Mary-Sues, or the fact that he has a habit of taking her in public, just so he can tell her how ugly, stupid, and worthless she is and have an audience around to hear it.

I keep telling her just to leave him; he's a loser with no money, no job, he lives with his grandmother, and he lacks the ability to tell fiction from reality and keep a grip on his temper.

She's too afraid, though. I can understand; when you've been under someone's thumb for so long, it's terrifying to be free, and it's also terrifying to think of the consequences. I mean, if this is what he does when he claims he loves her, what would he do when he hates her?

TL:DR; She wants to leave him, she's too afraid, and I want to kick his ass for being such an arrogant fucktard.

But please do SOMETHING! They have woman shelters for that all over the country! Pleeease get your friend help - that is DANGEROUS! Get her protection, and get her some counseling!

Thank all of you guys for your support - and I'm really sorry that I scared you guys. I'm feeling a little better tonight after having an encouraging talk with my sister and finally being able to get Pops his birthday gift (a 3 foot tall Teddy Bear that I named Sweetheart! He collects bears and out of the 20-30 something bears he has, all of them have names.)

I also told work about my issue with depression since it's created attendance problems to the extreme. I didn't ask for an accommodation because I don't want one - I just want them to understand that my panic attacks are very real and can have physical repercussions.

I still need to talk to mom about my feelings. Tried to talk with her in the car about it on my way to work, but it didn't quite work out. But she did say she loved and cared for me, so it was a start. I'm feeling just a little bit more hopeful for my future.

In other news, I'm still sick, and feel even worse than yesterday. Might have to call out AGAIN. Mom better not give me crap about it.

Dear lord, please call the police. It will get worse. You may risk seeing her angry or even more frightened when he gets taken away, but it will be worth it to see her safe. Make sure to explain to her exactly why you called the police on him-- she may not see eye to eye with you if he winds up being investigated or getting arrested. My mother sure didn't after I had her boyfriend arrested for beating her face in and choking her. She disowned me, and now has a child with him. I still get angry when I think of it.

>I just want them to understand that my panic attacks are very real and can have physical repercussions.
I've lost jobs because of the same condition. It is what it is-- if it's bad enough to qualify as "clinically recognized" anxiety or depression, you should think of looking into SSI/disability. It sounds demeaning, but it will put food on the proverbial table until you can find something that's less stressful for you.

>In other news, I'm still sick, and feel even worse than yesterday. Might have to call out AGAIN. Mom better not give me crap about it.

My boyfriend bought me a lovely, brand new, bound sketchbook today, trying to encourage me to pick up drawing again. Only thing is, every time I try to draw I end up angry and on the verge of tears because I'm so abysmally terrible at it. I've tried classes, books, online tutorials, practice, practice, and practice, but I never improve. I haven't improved in almost seven years. I want to be able to express myself visually, and being unable to drives me straight up the wall and makes me want to cry. I'm probably making a really fucking big deal of it though for it being so small.

I believe it was Mel Blanc who said you have 10,000 bad drawings in you, no matter who you are, and the sooner you get them out of you, the better.

Look at it this way- your boyfriend knows you like to draw, and the only person you should worry about impressing with your art is yourself. Once you can make yourself happy, you can start worrying about others.


I have to deal with anxiety attacks too- it makes me shaky, miserable, and restricts me from eating almost anything because of stomach cramps. I want to go on medication for it, but I can't get my parents to treat it like a legitimate issue.

I was talking with my mother earlier. She said something about how I have trained myself to not love anyone and be aloof all the time. She sounded like she was joking, but I feel she may have been closer to the truth than she realized. I feel like I have inadvertantly trained myself to not let anyone get close to me, to not let myself care about anyone. To not be able to even comprehend what it means for someone to be important to me. There has only been one person that has ever gotten truely close to me, who has ever dominated my thoughts so fully, and that ended in complete disaster. I don't understand people. I don't even understand myself. I can't let myself trust anyone enough. I can't have anyone be special to me. I don't know how. All I know is being alone. And I hate it.

I feel like I'm sounding like one of those emo kids who complain about how no one understands them and thinks they're so dark and mysterious. Maybe I need a therapist.

Today i lost a friend. Again.
So i get a phonecall assuming in all my not knowing it may something of a jobinterview. After a confusing time on the phone i hear this nickname of me. And just one person on this whole wide world calls me this. Fully knowing how much it riles me up. Anyway so i said hello and he asks me why i don´t reply to him anymore. Uhm, because i like quited our friendship? <- My exact answer. The answer was a rather angry oh and this was the end of the call.

I went through a I´m kinda sad and now lay here in fetal postion and oh it would have nice to at least after 6 years of friendship and a bit flirting to shake his hand and finaly drink the beer together we ever wanted to do. But know what?
I tried. I tried to say it in the good. I told him that. He ignored it. I have no energy anymore. I really have it not. And if you don´t feel HAPPY anymore if you talk to someone and it gets on your psyche... than you have the right to say: I´m sorry and you are a nice person but i can´t be friends anymore.
I don´t need these persons in my lfe right now. I don´t need such persons ever.

Now i went through the lose of a friend again, and i´m not quite okay by it, but it is better than last time. I don´t feel anger by all this anymore. I don´t even feel sad but more in the space of regret. But i will not back down. I´m not a toy.

Sometimes it's an inadvertant defence mechanism you work into your thought process after being hurt. I've said some of the same things you have in that post word for word. Last year I was involved in a breakup with my boyfriend of 6 years because of my inability to really understand myself, much less other people, and now I don't really deal with anyone anymore. Functioning romantically or even letting people close to me is out of the question anymore. Emo as it sounds I can't bring myself to feel for anyone anymore. I'm more shocked when other people provoke an emotional response in me than anything.

Kinda yes. I´m more upset that he again went over this line i drew for myself. This line was firstly: I´m not okay with your behaviour you show to me please change that. And he ignored it. Forcing me to say: I wish you everything good, thank you for your friendship, but this does not work for me anymore. Ignoring that, too. Letting me lose controll of me to blantly tell him i did quite our friendship, while he thought... i dunno. That i joke?
I don´t joke about that. Because it is hurting. I also don´t remove friends for a short time from my friendslist if we are in a twist and i need space, beause this is hurting and degrading too. You don´t do that to people you like, don´t you? Because if you do you could also say: You did something which i don´t like. You are not my friend anymore. Kindergarten for me and wrong behaviour. If people read this now and think this is okay and correct for the internet. I want to say no. Would you like that if someone does that to you which you consider a good friend? No. You tell him: I don´t want to talk to you for a moment until i get myself together and i´m sure i can handle this and we can talk again about it like two adults. So if i remove someone i do this, because i want never to have anything to do with this person again or i just don´t see them as my friends. Irony: Just the previous day i removed him from my friendlist of a old account of mine where our friendship started. It just stings that it again showed that our friendship of 6 long years doesn´t seem to be more worth for him. And i don´t like that i feel like the baddy for doing something where people tell me it is right to do so. Also i kinda got reminded that i seem to lose friends somehow from my past. Which let me slip into a: I´m so lonely state and asking myself what i do wrong. But i also won some over the course of the last year, which are far more better than he was.

It is good that you listen to her. I don´t know what you mean with family stuff if it is a lot of stress there or something else. To comfort people or to make them happy there are several ways. It ever depends. You can try to make some jokes or to distract her by talking to her about your favourite themes. Even a little game which you gift can bring spirits up. Good is to show someone the bright side of life or to ask him about plans he made which he can soon realize e.g.: concert of favourite band or else. Basically: To bring up the spirit of someone be their friend and remind them WHY you are friends. But sometimes people just need other people to LISTEN to them. They need someone where you can utterly complain about something to get off steam and than to continue with your life. If you still don´t know what to do or it doesn´t get better, maybe you aren´t the right person and she needs to look for professional help to help herself. Like a therapy. It doesn´t even need to be a therapy. There are even in some cities information centers or family counselling centre. Sometimes even in churches are social workers which doesn´t look at what you believe but want to help. She could try to go there to get some advise. If she goes there than she should look out for someone who has already some years under his belt of this profession and a degree in psychologic. The people there have their experience and can really help, because they saw many things already. This is just a tipp of mine.

You got it all right and even if it is cold you can eat it. Filling you with pride and joy. And food. Considering that you ate maybe like me in the last 3 days just 3 meals, than this is even better. Pure joy. God it is so good. I never felt over a meal like that before. Pure heaven on my tongue.

Pic related, because i sat there listening to music which wretched my heart, not trying to cry. I want to stop hurting.

KGBoyfreind is doing everything in his power to make the idea of marriage less terrifying for me - including me in ring shopping, talking to metal bands and trying to arrange the thing as nothing more than a big party.
I fucked that up really bad by just sitting there and saying nothing while he explained all this to me and asked for feedback. He got the idea that I didn't want to marry him.
It took four hours of crying and hugging to patch things up.
I just want to be with him and no one else. I want him to be happy. I am scared to death because I just don't feel worthy of all his love. But if I lost him I would probably end my own life.
>> GB No. 11455
I know how scary the thought of marriage can be, but its obvious you do care a lot for yer special guy, and the best way to help yerself through that is just to think of not just how much he means to you, but how much you mean to him. Marriage is his and your way of showing just how much you mean to each other, its a promise and a vow that you will always feel as you do now, and that you'll always be there for one and other.
Think of it as one, big "I love you" if it helps. A celebration of your love. A disco of devotion. A hoe down of hugs. Maybe trying to calm down isn't the best trip, maybe its best to just turn said terror into excitement?
>> DE No. 11457
I need to ask why you are scared of marriage. Don´t get me wrong, i believe you if you say it is not the idea of beeing together with your beloved and to make this big promise and sign of love with him. But mostly there is a reason behind that "terror". Are you scared of something, do things change to fast for you (organisation stress?) or is it something else? Does he know that you have a problem of the concept of marriage and not him? You should get down with your problems and try to find some solutions. Possibly without involving him much, because it is just the concept which seems to scare you and not him. You should try to talk to someone else who can relate to you or this theme to sort it out. Sometimes to talk with someone about your problems helps to see it all in a different light. Besides there is no shame of beeing scared of this. Every person deals differently with it and while some persons never even find a person they can seriously consider this, others are already engaged after one year. And want to marry in four years. Guys i still wish for both for you just rainbows and sunshine. Or are together for decades and don´t marry, but would do so if they think it would change anything big. Maybe to start things small to get into the wedding organisation waltz you should think on something for your wedding you want. Something which let´s you think: Okay, this is my wedding and to make it my wedding i need that. Like *insert something really cool and not boring right here*. It is his day and yours. So try to find something enjoyable for both of you.

My cousin's husband found that really worked for him. He was scared as shit to get married, especially because, since her family was paying for it, and she'd basically been planning the wedding since she was twelve, he felt very uninvolved.
Then her mother talked to him, and let him pick out the entire menu. He loves to cook, so it was right up his alley. It made him feel much better about the whole thing, and the wedding was absolutely beautiful.
And damn, that chicken was gooooood.

Until recently I've been pretty much a complete and total shut-in. I'd go to work and come straight home after I'm done without really hanging out with people or talking to them outside of work. But now that I've got a new job and will be moving somewhere new I kind of want to change that. I've tried getting back in touch with old sort-of friends to start.

I also kind of want to start dating too, but I have absolutely no romantic experience whatsoever, and have no idea how to go about doing that. I don't want hookups, and in all honesty even if I do get a boyfriend I probably won't even be interested in anything physical until really late in the game. So cruising for guys trying to get my number at a party or a bar most likely wouldn't do me much good. Probably not the best place to ask since this is a feelings thread more than an advice thread but does anyone have any pointers for that kind of stuff?

Got word back from my uncle, and it turns out he's willing to send me money from my inheritance for rent every month. However, I still have to pay utilities and such, so I need to find a way to make around $500 a month. I work for my mom, but I don't make anywhere near that with her. On the other hand, I'm her only employee and I know a lot of things that would take a new employee ages to learn, so she kind of needs me.

She's going to try to get me more hours, but if she can't come up with stuff for me to do, I'm not really sure what I'm gonna do. I can't handle working for her, going to college, and working a second job. Looking into selling stuff on etsy and such, but I'm definitely gonna have to scrape it together.

Excited, though. Not having to worry about rent is a huge load off.

A client managed to push ALL the 'make Kit cry' buttons today.

My job is half customer-support, half sales. I called to make sure everything was going alright with one of the clients on our website (TripAdvisor), and next thing I know, I'm being screamed at because some New Jersey bitch and her dumpy shithole of a motel didn't know they were on the site.

It's the WORLD'S FUCKING LARGEST travel review site. I've never found a hotel or B&B that isn't on there.

Bear in mind, she was screaming about the FREE listing she had. This cock-eyed dingus was convinced that the entire website was a scam, and I, personally, was trying to take her money and rape her daughter, or whatever morons from Jersey think travel review sites do.

She then proceeded to tell me that I was lying, that she had never signed up for it (I had her listing pulled up on Chrome before I called her), then spam-called me, my co-workers, my supervisor, and all else involved for THREE HOURS.

So I boo-hoo'ed at my desk for a minute before I decided to file a complaint against the BBB because she was making some pretty nasty personal threats, from her work phone, while at her property, in front of guests.

I'd be lying if I didn't expect anyone to read my rantings, but getting a response still brings some psychological validation.
Donny, Karnickle; I feel like you guys should be compensated for the number of hours that you put into letting random internet strangers cry on your shoulders.
I have always associated marriage with subjugation for one reason or another. It's difficult to overcome, but KGBoyfriend's infinite patience and compassion has helped me overcome many things including this.
We've been an item for NINE YEARS. NINE fucking years of saving up for some kind of formal affirmation of our relationship. Now we have the funds and I'm still having fucking problems. I still feel like I'm being tricked into climbing into a guilded cage - religated to the role of housekeeper and brood mare.
I know it is wholly irrational, but that is how I feel.
KGBoyfriend knows that I have had issues with trust since he met me (since my dad killed my mom and I had to take a crash course in self-reliance in order to take care of my kid brother. :V) And I have known that he has issues with abandonment/rejection. (PTS from his service in the military aside, His parents are just seriously fucked up people and he also raised his kid siblings) Needless to say, we are both very emotionally scarred people, but we have trained eachother to approach our ISSUES with stone cold logic. SO...
The Problem:
I hate feeling like I've been dooped, roped, bridled and exposed.
KGBoyfriend panics if I keep ANYTHING from him.
I would rather eat glass than hurt his feelings by telling him that HE is causing me pain in any way.
I go against my irrational instincts and trust in him. I tell him that I'm feeling that way because of this trigger or that trigger.
As I expected, he cries and assumes that it's all his fault and he's a terrible person.
I cry and apologize and do everything I can to assure him that I know he's not trying to trick me. But I can't explain why I still feel like he is. This in turn makes me hate myself and I apologize for making him put up with my bullshit.
We console each other in a pitiful, saccarine display for a few hours.
Once that's done and over with, we can only assume that even though our relationship may be based on some kind of childish co-dependance, we should make the best of it and be happy that we have each other.
Then we have sex and all is forgiven.
The end.

Welcome to my world.
Believe it or not it's actually NORMAL to not be completely stoked about everything 24/7.
Everyone has good days and bad days. Sometimes things roll off our backs and sometimes they stick in deep like daggers.
It takes some trial and error to find the right way to deal with problems; just think really hard about what is REALLY on your mind and why it's bothering you. You may or may not have actual physical control over the problem, but you DO for sure have control over how you handle it.
This may or may not require professional help. That's totally up to you. Just do what you think is right.

Had to skip a day of class, the only class I have that I actually give a fuck about, because my mom nagged me into staying behind and helping out my sisters with their community play.
My best friend is pissed at me because she hates that I let my mom walk all over me, while I'm bitching to her in my head how she and her family don't even like each other, who's she to judge what my family does?
I'm pissed that I haven't slept properly in the last 3 days, I can't properly express and explain myself how much supporting the family means to my mom, even if it means having to stick through and help a children's musical for my sisters, and I smile and laugh as a defensive reflex because I absolutely HATE speaking my thoughts and getting dragged into long drawn out arguments.
The frustration I feel is not the one that goes "Grah! Fuck this!" and flips tables, but it's the kind that settles in your stomach and kills you slowly from the inside.
I'm aware that somewhere along the line, this is mostly my fault, but dammit all, I just don't have the energy to give a shit.

I´m sorry my answer comes so late, but i felt this was very serious, therefore i tried to take my time to think about all this.

I wouldn't call it a childish codependance. You both seemed to have gone through a lot and found someone who can deal with what the other got and support each other than. It seems
that you don´t know exactly where this fear and feelings are coming from but considering what you already told - it doesn't come out of nowhere and may have its source way back in your life (wild guess your family). One possibility could be to consult someone with a psychological degree to be able to cope with this issue for the time being or as i already said try to find someone you can trust and can help you to deal with this feelings by telling you how marriage is. The other way is to be tough. Pull yourself together, face your feelings, tell them: I may feel like that now, but i don´t need to act like that. Maybe sit down and write down WHY your marriage will never be like your horror scenario marriage of being determined to just this typical 50´s housewife. Firstly, because you aren't the character for that. Secondly, from what you told already about your bf and your relationship, that you both seem to be pretty much equal in it, open-minded about so much things. So if you explain calmly to him what you think may happen after you got this piece of paper which declares you both are together, he can understand.

Asked my friend B. he said: "I understand her fear, but it seems like the problems of the past are trying now to manifest in the present. What she went through is really hard and she may now connect emotional wounds subconsciously to some things for example: marriage. What she would need is someone who she can talk to, to decrease her fears and before they might take a life on their own, the fear of marriage. But in the long run she should look forward to try to work on this problems and not just with her husband, because over the time it can maybe negatively influence their relationship. But most important was that she talks with her husband and tries to make clear that it is neither his fault nor hers that she feels so.
There was nothing to feel guilty for, no reason to be ashamed of because feelings would be neither true or wrong - just be.
Hiding feelings would never be a prosperous start of a marriage and could result in an everlasting shadow lying on your partnership which could grow but was never meant to exist. Whenever a leap of faith was necessary then now and it would not become any safer than with a partner who is willingly to become a part of your life.”

I made everyone at rehearsal laugh. Not just a chuckle, either. HUGE laughs. Sandra laughed so hard she cried. Vince couldn't talk.

See, I was on book today (reading the script as they rehearse, and taking note of errors), and the director had me ringing a bell everytime they made a textual error- which, after a while, drove everyone crazy.

So there's this one part in the script, where the actor has to give a little speech intentionally super quiet, and intentionally unintelligible. You can't understand a word he says.

So he's just speaking for a bit, this little speech, and I get a flash of inspiration. I warred with myself, briefly, on whether or not to do it. Eventually, I did. I rang the bell.

Everyone burst out laughing, and I was so pleased.

I need to be awake in 5 hours, but I seem to be haunted by memories of nonexistent relationships past. So pardon me while I vent a little to try to get this off my mind.

The first boy, I rejected. It was high school. I had seen him with a new girlfriend every week, I wasn't gonna play that game. I have no regrets about that one. Second guy I also rejected, just cause I knew I wasn't feeling anything more than friendship. I was in college by then. The third one was where things started getting sticky.

He was an acquaintance I had known for a while. I knew he was a social butterfly. Lots of friends. Blah, blah, blah. We actually started playing a game together and that's when I noticed he'd kinda flirt with me. Of course I don't know what to make of it, 'cause I'm pretty sure he flirted with everyone and he has a lot of company with other girls so, y'know, I couldn't really think much off it. Then he gave me a valentine gift in the game we played together, and that's when I started to believe it might have been a serious gesture rather than casual. I blame my hormones, frankly, 'cause as soon as I got it in my head that he might actually like me, I became obsessed with the possibility. The guy talks about visiting me at my school, I remember my excitement and how I dolled myself up for the occasion. I remember sitting and waiting by my phone all day waiting for his arrival. He calls, but to tell me that he won't be making it down. I was crushed and it sparked an anger in me that would continue to haunt me. I realized I had wasted a day waiting on this guy to show up for nothing. A few months down the line, he talks about coming down again, this time enticing him to actually come by offering couch space. Then he tells me he's bringing along another friend who was another girl. That dashed any notions I may of had of actually getting to have a date with this guy. It was a fun visit, but still, I quickly gave up on him and put an end to that friendship.

The fourth was set up to go no where either, but was probably far more devastating. I meet this guy sort of randomly at a convention with a friend of mine. He was charming, cute, and super helpful. My friend and I agreed on this. My friend would lament that she already had a boyfriend of a couple years. It was a long distance relationship, though, so she must have been craving intimacy because she was all over this guy when we were around him. The guy seemed have some kind of interest in me though, as in, he was a fan of my artwork. I was really infatiated with this guy, but my friend's aggressive advances despite the fact that she was taken, really turned me off of displaying any affection toward this guy. And what really got me is that my friend would tell me "Oh, he likes you're kind of body type. I'm too fat, blah blah blah". But I didn't believe for a second my friend was actually looking out for my interests on this matter. It got to the point where she was cuddling and kissing him at the next convention we all went to. I couldn't stand it, and started acting out chaotically the whole con. Any thing that may have made me attractive to him at that point was gone as soon as I earned the label of "crazy bitch". Eventually my friend cut out that crap with the guy, and I thought enough time would have passed to maybe forgive my past actions, but by that point he had already met another girl, which I unfortunately found out about when I playfully presented a valentine card to him. God I felt like such a tool. I don't think anything hurt quite as much as this guy, maybe because I felt he was stolen from me by someone I called my friend WHO ALREADY HAD A BOYFRIEND. That just never sat right with me.

The fifth guy, oh, I loathe this man, and he doesn't even understand it. Sure, I handled this one so fucking stupidly that I deserved it, but y'know, I'm allowed to be mad at someone who should no better than to take advantage of that. We met while participating in a contest online, he seemed to be a fan of mine, and I thought he was a clever cartoonist too. This guy was overtly affectionate and would just gush all over me. I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the attention. But as soon as I found out that he had a girlfriend, it should have been clear that this wasn't something I wanted to be messing with, but I was hopeless, stupid, and desperate. I mean, upon finding out that he had a girlfriend, I backed off. I would shut down his displays of affection because it felt wrong to me. But he would bitch and moan about how his girlfriend wasn't showing him as much attention as he used to, and some how that got my sympathy. But then a curious thing happened, he began displaying affections toward another girl who was my friend. Things were happening out of my view and suddenly it seems like this guy, my friend and another guy friend are caught up in this love triangle. And that's just drama all around. My friend ends up rejecting the both of them. Here's the thing though, the guy I was interested in wasn't officially broke up with his girlfriend, so he was essentially cheating. This is how I know I was a fucking idiot because I forgave that shit. Eventually he does make it official, and that's when in my deluded state decide that I'm going to go across the fucking country to see this guy. And of course he doesn't say no. He actively encourages me, and convinces me to fool around with him, and that didn't even feel good. We go to a convention together and meet up with a few of our other friends and of course he's crazy affectionate with them too. It wasn't until after that whole thing that I learned that he decided to start dating my other friend, presumably BEFORE we fooled around, so I felt even shitter being an accessory for adultery. I stopped talking to him as soon as I found out. I left that group of friends, and involved myself with TF2 fandom of all things.

That's where I met the sixth guy. I shouldn't really talk about this guy since he still comes around here, but fair to say that it was a slow burn because he couldn't just shut me down from the beginning before I invested that much more of my heart to him. I didn't help that there was another third party in this thing that just seemed to throw a proverbial wrench into things. I'm fairly determined to not do to the whole three's a crowd thing again.

I've been emotionally detached ever since. I have little desire to go looking for an actual relationship with anyone anymore. I've been at this for 7 years and I fuck up every single time. 3 of those guys have steady girlfriends, so that there's no going back to try to patch anything up, even if I wanted to. I've accepted that I don't think I'm supposed to be a person in a relationship, and my personality disorder makes sure of that.

And yet I'm still so fucking lonely. I hate having to hide behind steel walls in order to not hurt anymore. I want to know what it's like to have an actual loving mutual relationship. But it's going to continue to take years to unfuck myself up, and it feels like by then, there won't be any healthy options for me left out there.

Kilo, even supposed people who are, i may now just quote you fucked up find persons who love them. Because really what the heck is normal? The thing is as you already said, if a relationship is a mutual loving one than. You give love and you get love. I work on that what we have and you work on what we have. And if there is really love, than no matter what your problems are. So long as you try to work on it and show your love, the other one will ever be there for you. I know how you feel. I believe a good percent of the channers here know how you feel. And i wish i just could pat you on the back and say: If the right one comes along. But in all honesty this is such crap i hear since i´m in the age of starting dating, that i despise it to say it to others. And it is cheesy in a bad way. And i know the feeling of thinking: Well, maybe i´m not good enough for anyone. Maybe it´s not meant to be and i will end up alone beeing the crazy cat lady. Fuck wait, i´m allergic to cats so even that isn´t there for me. But than i look around and even if on some points it hurts, i see all the happy relationships of my friends and get all the nice funny building up chats with them, and see all the happy relationships of others in generell and think: Hey, maybe one day... And than i get hope up again. It also may be that i make merciless fun of my situation. So much fun that it is almost aggressive. But than i think i´m already the bitter cynical human beeing for others, so i just can play up to this role. This is all i can offer to you Kilo. Maybe one day. Until than try babysteps and start to realise all single things you can do to make yourself happy on your own. And who knows? Hey i already saw pensioners fall in love.

It seems a lot of us have relationship issues. Though I think I have finally gotten over the whole "super sad because I don't like being alone" thing. Nowadays I just feel kinda apathetic about the whole thing. Yeah it would be nice, I think, but I am having a hard time imagining someone being super important to me. Kilo's stuff up there made me think about past failed and non-existant relationships. I never let most of them get past crushes. One that became an actual relationship kind of fizzled out, and another one never became a relationship, but caused great amounts of emotional distress. Those are the "highlights" of my non-existant love life. Though I do still feel bad about the one time I actually rejected someone. I was unneccesarily rude about it. I don't like being mean to people that have done nothing wrong. And now I have to discuss things with a friend who has been unusually affectionate the past few times I have seen her, but I have not been able to get in contact with in several days.

Talking to strangers about things I won't tell people I know. Such is life.

I´m a spineless worm who can be easy manipulated.
I have no pride and i have all regrets.
I feel bad for once saying what is on my mind.
I feel bad because i know i just said it because i kinda snapped by the words: And if you do this than you can look out for yourself how you come out again. Because yes, i like to make my life troublesome. I love it.

Got it. Not the first time, i get told this. Good to know my family is ever there for me.

Also i´m away over the weekend visiting a person which i don´t recognize anymore.

I believe I have a fear of commitment/relationships/something. I mean, I want to be in a loving relationship, but at the same time, the idea of it terrifies me. It feels like too much of a change to go from relative isolation to actually caring about someone. Like the last time I had a girlfriend, I really did like her, but almost immediately after we got together, I felt like I had to find some way out of it. Very panic-y, very conflicted. Constant arguing within the mind, one side wanting to embrace having another person in life, the other side wanting to push them away and remain alone. Always alone

Old wounds where opened up and some new where made. There was also laughter and "schunkeln" (Randfichten. Randfichten. I´m not proud that i can sing some songs of them.) New deals where made. If they are some Faustische, just the future will show. All in all: Typical weekend.

It is human to ask questions, even in a good relationship. It is okay to ask yourself, is this the real thing? Natural.
Than again i need to say. There are far to less informations here, to give something like a real advise. Why do you think you are in love? Why do you feel like that? Maybe you think you are in love, because you feel attracted to them, because you feel understood by them more, which ever makes a huge + in female attraction scale. And maybe you are bi! But than again... where would be the difference than? Do you feel less understood by your boyfriend? Don´t you feel that secure with him? Where would be the problem with it?

Only advise i can give is that beeing close to a friend and beeing excited about him beeing there doesn´t mean there is love involved. You just hang out with him and have a good time, cause it let´s you feel good to have a good time.

True, but getting a job and having a good show are much rarer, life experience stuff, where as a game happens all the time and is hardly big event stuff, heck, I play a competitive match 3-4 times a week sometimes, winning most, and I feel good about it sure, but Id rather post about more serious or bigger things, and also, they were agreeing with me, as well as saying "I didn't like how you came of there" which is perfectly reasonable to do if you don't like something.

You wanna post about big life events, you do that. However important life events is not a rule of this thread. If I posted about how I had a bowl of cereal this morning, and then posted about how I had waffles the next day, would you say "hey, is this really the place for you talking about your eating habits? Its not like you don't eat cereal everyday. Why post even post about it?"

Who are you to determine what is important enough to be in this thread? WHO? You guys really need to start checking yourselves. There's expressing your opinions, and then there's trying to oppose your opinions onto other people, and the latter don't fly. And I just have this BIG feeling that if it weren't Kumori making those posts, no one would have said shit.

And before any of you say shit about me not going after Kumori, remember I don't have any authority over her on these boards and can only discuss her behavior in private. So don't even go there.

I don't think his beef is so much the scale of the event, but using the feelings thread like a facebook status update/twitter account. We're here to post about feelings, and just saying things like 'I ate cereal' is not a feeling, so I think we should avoid stuff like that.
In short, feelings or GTFO, I guess.

New feelings. Just sitting here, thinking about nothing, and then start thinking about the essay I passed into French class last night. Suddenly remember I was supposed to use examples of verbs conjugated in the subjonctif form, and I didn't.

Just because you guys use this thread a lot does not mean you get to regulate how other people use it. This is what I am tell you guys. There is no defending this. How is this a hard concept to understand? I'm not going to say this again. I mean seriously. The post that started all this had a fucking reaction image to illustrate the feelings in the text. I'm not going to let you guys make it so you must EXPLICITLY STATE YOUR FEELINGS IN TEXT in order to be considered a valid post. It is not your job. If you feel a post violates some rule, you report it and leave it to the mods to handle. If they don't do anything about it, then it's been deemed okay or we'll keep an eye on it to see if subsequent posts are more problematic.

Do I need to lock and forbid any new feelings threads? No? Okay, let's focus on YOUR INDIVIDUAL FEELINGS and not talk about whether OTHER PEOPLE'S FEELINGS, NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE OR HOW THEY ARE EXPRESSED, should be here or not. Failure to do so will result in a hefty ban. Last warning.

Can't say today sucked, but it was hugely disappointing. It's one of those days where you have EVERYTHING all planned out, and then, one by one, all your plans fall into the toilet. I expected mom to be out til late today doing her teacher stuff, but I was hardly online for 15 minutes before she got home, was hovering around the the livingroom so I couldn't RP with mah bff Izzy (something I'd been looking forward to ALL DAAAY and yesterday, too), and disapproved at me while played TF2 to vent.

Speaking of TF2, I hate my computer SO MUCH. I was scraping along with a lousy 1-5ish fps while I was playing, making me pretty much a sitting duck. Not to mention my teammates couldn't figure out how to be a good medic-buddy for their lives (or maybe they were frustrated with how slow my framerate made me - idk). Not only that, but we only played maps I HATE. Hightower being one because the huge, open space makes my computer flip out even MORE because it has to render all that crap.

39 Steps.

Nowhere in the script does it actually call for maracas, but we're doing the Margaret-Hannay scene, and the sound guys are like 'Hey, I know this is in Scotland, but we're gonna play some flamenco music to show just how romantic this scene is.', and then the two clowns were like 'Hey, we're gonna maraca our way onto the stage for our entrance k bye'.

And then we needed maracas. And got maracas. And I bought extras, because they will be broken, if I know those two.

I think I'm finally starting to see theatre like a job. I can see the end of it in sight, and, while I'm not relieved for it, I'm relieved for the lack of anxiety the end will bring.

Bluh. So much shit to do and I can't do most of it because my mom "doesn't know when we'll have work this week." Apparently every day this week is a "maybe" so I can't schedule any apartment viewings or anything.

I should at least start looking into an insurance policy. Fortunately, the one I'm on now didn't pay any money to the person whose bumper I tapped last month for injury, so I'm not stuck with this company for three years. I'm giving myself a high estimate right now so hopefully I can find something in my price range and still be able to protect my inheritance.

My mom is going to pay me to clean the house AFTER I move out, so it's hard to tell if I'm making enough money to get by right now. I'm pretty sure I am, considering I'm making my current goal with really high estimates, but it's still stressing me out a bit.

There's a long story behind this, but I don't want to bore anyone with the pages worth of.. whatever this is. Right now I'm in a really dark place because my best friend's ex is trying to blackmail me.

The ex is a violent little bugger and thinks it's okay to be rude to everyone, especially in the flat I share with my best friend. My best friend is a like a big brother to me so this makes me really mad. A few days ago their relationship ended but tonight the evil ex started sending abusive messages to both of us. I stood up to him and then his evil ex revealed he'd stolen a letter I wrote for my father. It was a letter that I never meant to be sent.

Ordinarily this wouldn't bother me except things between me and my father are extremely complicated. On phone, text, or email we're quite amicable and even friendly with each other. In person we can't get along, and most of this is because of my physical appearance. He HATES body modification, he knows about eight of my piercings, last time I came "home" he made me put a hood up so he didn't have to see my piercings. He doesn't know about the ninth piercing or my scarification. He didn't know I was bi and certainly doesn't know I'm somewhere between bi and gay.

After hearing about the blackmail I sent my Dad a text to call me, I let him know about the letter. I thought it better that the blackmail would be ineffective if I just told my Dad everything. Fuck I'm just so scared. He's homophobic and thinks that homosexuality is a disease that spreads. He knows my best mate is gay and he already dislikes him, I don't want him to be blamed because of who I like. As I type I'm trying not to cry, I don't know what to say to my Dad and I'm so fucking scared and can't stop shaking.

I wish I could ask for help but at this time (4:37am) but there's no one

Subbed for scout tonight, one of my least played classes and... I did pretty well. Im starting to grudgingly warm to the class though I have a long way to go. Few memorable moments was tearing their medic down twice just as he got charge and another when he had five team mates surrounding him, I had him another few times but in less impressive circumstances.

Also, I smiled a crooked grin when we played on our server first, won 3-1 and the enemy team complained about the server. So we played again on their own and still walked away with the win despite it being even worse and me having to virtually play at TF2 slide-show.

Humble pie? The fuck is that? Give me my moment will ya? Im super chuffed.

I kept meaning to reply but kept forgetting, blargh. The phone call went extremely well, I told my Dad about the blackmail and.. well. It's lucky for the idiot that my Dad doesn't know his address otherwise he'd be as dead as my bacon sandwich. Dad said he won't open the letter should it ever be sent, at this stage I hope it does get sent so I at least know where it is. My best friend and I are beginning to think the idiot lied about stealing the letter, I still can't find it though.

As for the call itself, I only got out about wanting to be able to tell him what mods I'm going to get, where, when. It wouldn't be right to get them behind his back, and with his money as I'm still financially dependent on him. He told me why he hates them, and it does make sense, so we've come to respect each other's opinion about it. I nearly came out to him but just when I was about to say the words my Dad reminded me he still needed to get to work.

AH, just as I was writing this my best mate got a death threat from the idiot (his ex). Definitely going to call the cops now.

Sometimes I feel really overwhelmed by everything going on in my life, but only when I really think about it.

I'm still planning to move out and I need to schedule some apartment viewings. I also need to buy the car from my dad and get my own insurance policy to do so.

I need to worry about the fact that I'm not sure if I'm making enough money at work to support myself. I need to work on making more hours.

I need to worry about school and homework.

I need to worry about an upcoming con, six to eight cosplays for myself and my boyfriend, where we're going to stay, and the meetups that I usually plan.

I need to take my boyfriend to therapy because his mom refuses to drive him or teach him to drive.

I need to work out more and lose weight, but I'm currently too sick to do so.

But honestly? This kind of stuff only bothers me when I REALLY think about it. I'm aware of it all; I know it's sitting on my plate and it's all shit I have to get done. But the only time it overwhelms me is when I stop and actually think about it all at once.

Stop that, self.

Reality just does not quite feel real to me. I know that things happen around and to me, but most of the time it feels like it has very little connection to me. Like there should be some connection funneling all external stimuli into my conciousness, but it is missing so a bit of it doesn't make it in. I don't think I am depressed or anything, maybe not as happy as most people, but I've always felt like my mind is not properly connected to my body, and by extension to the world. It is a very strange feeling.

I just called my dad out for the double standard that exists between my brother and I. I work 57 to 60 hours a week, then come home and do all the housework every night and every other little thing my dad asks me to do while my brother sits around in his room all day playing guitar and video games.
My brother is miserable literally all the time and whenever anyone talks to him he snarls and swears at them, but when I'm bitchy because I've had the worst day ever and I am in a bad mood that will last mere hours, I get told I'm a bitch and that if I want to give attitude, I should look for a new place to live.
My brother goes six or seven days without a shower or changing his clothes and no one cares, but when I grew my hair out long and bought some nicer clothes I got 'oh look, she's finally dressing like a fucking girl for once' grunted as a response.
My brother has things bought for him all the time by our parents even though he gets a grant from the government and spends it all on selfish things, but I buy everything myself and even the most necessary of purchases gets me a 'really? you're buying that? don't you ever want to go to university?' from my mother.
Since my brother gets this grant, he doesn't work, and he can spend his money freely and without care, but anytime I buy anything, anything at all, my dad tells me 'either work more or spend less.' And really, I work eight hours every weekday and 8-10 hours both days on the weekend... there's not all that much more time I could be working. He tells me not to go on trips to visit people that I only get to see a couple times a year, which generally cost me less than $100, but doesn't so much as blink when my brother drops $500 on a new guitar when he already has six.
He breaks things, he gets no punishment, I break things, I pay for them to get repaired or replaced.
When we were in school, he'd get good marks by having EA's do everything for him and my parents and grandparents would shower him with praise and gifts and I had to work my ass off for five years and I didn't get anything for my efforts.
He drops out of high school and gets a 'good, it was putting too much pressure on you anyways,' while I get accepted by all three universities that I applied to and get an entrance scholarship at two of them for my average being above 80 and I get 'you should have done better, you get an even better scholarship if you're above 90.'
I could bitch some more but I am tired. Work at 8am comes early. Point is I called my dad out on the whole 'I work and he doesn't, but he still gets everything he wants and I get yelled at for buying necessary things like socks and underwear' and he looked like he was going to say something, then just fell silent. After a pause he told me to shut up and go to bed. Small, but still a victory nonetheless. They're all I can get in that war right now.

I other news, I have the best boyfriend in the world.

Second post today, but hell, de-lurking has been nice so far and I'm pissed.

I work at the photocenter at the local walmart (kill me) and today I had every god-damn machine break down at least once and THEN had a customer come in swearing about some poster she did of her dog. Apparently she didn't even bother to look at it before heading home the night before (which I wasn't working) and realized that it was pretty much just a picture of her dog's dick (that is where SHE centred it). After all her tirade and verbal abuse I re-printed it FREE OF CHARGE then she huffs out saying that it was 'a damn good thing' I fixed it or she would have talked to my manager just to me fired.
Fuck man. Fuck.
At one point she said 'Does it look like I want a picture of my dog's fuckin willy?!' I should have said 'Well I dunno. I just figured you were just into that sort of thing.' Sigh.

And re: TwoRefined; my brother is disabled, yes. He's autistic, but he's very high-functioning. For example, he's worked two jobs before, for a few months apiece. He's fully capable of getting a job, he's just lazy as fuck and as long as the government is going to pay for him to lay around all day and still buy everything he wants, that's what he's going to do. Same thing for school, he's 21 and hasn't graduated high school simply because he doesn't want to get up and go to an adult learning center and he doesn't have the motication to put himself to work at home that he would need to take online courses. He's too happy with his lot in life right now to change it.

Once upon a time on the inter webs there was a place called "Gaia Online" where most my earliest RP days took place, about 9-8 years back (DONT JUDGE ME!) and I just remembered my old account there and how popular it was, so with a skip and a jump, I headed there, thinking there may be a way to exchange my old Gaia loot for TF2 loot!

What I didn't expect was the fist of emotion that would slam into me. Good god, the history there, friends I made and lost there, the things that started and came crashing down, I actually feel sick just looking at it now, hell, feels like my eyes are burning slightly. I need a feckin hug.

Sometimes I feel like I should join a dating site. But I also feel like that would just be admitting I'm too incompetant at interpersonel interactions and tantamount to giving up. I feel like I'm too young to go to some website for a relationship, but in my whole life I have had exactly one relationship, and that was a resounding failure. For the past year, I've only really known 4 girls. One is no longer on speaking terms with me, two have been in stable relationships for quite some time, and the other has me very confused about what she thinks of me and what I think about her (though me not being sure what I think about her is probably not a good sign).
Back to what I was saying earlier though. I am terrible with people. I can be nice and friendly, but I feel like I am incapable of forming a good relationship without help. I don't even know what the hell I would do in a relationship. Dating just seems like something I could never get myself to do. And for some reason, this bothers me more than anything else. I want to love and be loved, but I feel like I can't.
Maybe I need a therapist. Been thinking I do for years.

So my mom just threatened to kick me out of the house unless I did yard work with her outside, despite my obvious bronchial infection. I kept saying no as politely and calmly as I could, but I couldn't afford to be kicked out because of something as silly as this. Still, I didn't think it was too much to ask to be exempt from strenuous, outside work on a hot day with Georgia's ungodly pollen count, to boot. Just shows what I know.

Honestly, I'm a little in shock. I've always been a good kid, so I don't understand why she would feel that asking to not be a part of shoveling dirt would be heinous enough to outweigh all of my years of trying to be the best offspring I could be.

This thing you told...reminded me once when i had gone out with my mother. We went to walk around, to movies and stuff, and then, out of the blue, she said she regretted having children.

I guess i was...12, 13 years old, or something.

Now, my old scanner only scanned cardboard coupons maybe 30% of this time, and only certain ones. So I get used to putting the ones that won't into my rejects pile. Remembered, while scanning 'Oh, I can do cardboard with this scanner, apparently'. So I try this giant pile I have, normally none would go in.
ALL of it went in.

I actually danced a little. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I did. So happy.

>>11762 my apologies. I wasn't talking to any one person in particular, since everyone here is basically anonymous and I don't know anyone personally enough to make a solid judgement.

It's easy for me to assume that if a young person chooses to whine about their parents being abusive on the internet (TF2chan of all possible places) instead of feeling that it warrants going to the police, the problems that they have with their parents aren't really all that severe. So I thought that I'd just throw in my two cents and say 'yeah you can't change someone else's behavior, just your own' and all that gay stuff. I can't give these people what they probably really want - which is some kind of escape from what's going on around them. Even telling them that everything is fine and it's not their fault that they have problems is not an option for me because that would be a bold faced lie. I don't know anything about the person except for what they have posted and what little conjecture that I can reach based on past anecdotal experience.
I am under no illusion that there are aren't some seriously fucked up people in the world and that they have children. Of course taxes are no excuse for physical abuse. I'm just saying to any young person living at home who is upset because they're under pressure to get a job or move out, calm the fuck down and do your best to get yourself out of that situation, at least you have parents.
I probably should have been more specific, but honestly I didn't expect anyone to take anything I ever say seriously.

I agree with you for the most part, but every so often I do meet people who can't take it anymore, but legitimately don't realize that leaving is an option. Their parents guilt trip them into thinking that they'd be betraying their parents for ratting them out, or that they'd be homeless if they left, or that the police would never believe them.

That was my situation; my mother was a druggie, and tended to get a little punchy-punchy when she was coming down. THEN, when I told child protection, she (and everyone at our church) pulled the whole 'Oh, I'm just a poor mom with an unruly kid' bullshit. Granted, I was 14 at the time, so leaving was a no-no, but sometimes the system sucks.

In the meantime though, my life is FUCKING AMAZING. My co-worker, whom I carpool with, kindly allowed me to grocery shop with him, meaning I was able to pick up alcohol as well, which is something my ex-carpool never let me do. So I have wine.

Hello, tf2chan. I've never been here before. But I need help. And if not help, just someone to talk to.

I've been drawing for a little while now, and I also have very heavy anxiety and bipolar disorder. I think you see where this is going. Some days I feel fine, and then suddenly I will hate everything I do, hate myself, and feel like I am nowhere near where I want to be and never will be. I feel the lowest in my life when I criticize my own work.

When I try to improve, by doing basic figure drawings and perspective line practice and anatomy drills, I immediately build up terrible feelings and have to a) make a complete and finished work which defeats the point of the studies, or b) get really angry at myself and have to remove myself from the subject entirely.

Sometimes my anger, hate and frustration with my own work lasts for a few hours, but it has lasted for weeks and months in the past and it is really really hard on me. I can't look at other people's art without getting extremely jealous and having an attack. It's getting out of hand and I can't take this crap anymore.

So, I don't know what I want here. I guess I'm asking for any advice you may have, I guess I'm asking if anyone has ever felt the same way, or I don't know. I just know I see a lot of art here that I really look up to, so I turned here when I needed to vent. Thank goodness there's a feelings thread?

Anyway... Um. What a first post. I swear I won't be this sad in the future.
>> BR No. 11821

I'll be glad to help, since i'm a person with low self-esteem, and i get pretty depressed with my lack of...well, utility.

So, firts, dear, don't worry. You probably don't have any bipolar disorder or otherwise your euphoria and depressed moments would be far more disastrous (like, whole days spending money and throwing parties, and then suddenly locking yourself inside a dark room with suicidal amounts of alcoholic drinks, without eating) and you probably would be a very dysfunctional mental structure. Unless, of course, you already had passed through therapy and the psychologist already diagnosed ya with bipolar disorder(if so, forget what i said, hehe). So, please, don't worry with it.

Second, i feel very jealous with the skill of other people too, to the point of violence...against me(i swear i have never hurted someone because of their better skills - hehe, if i had made so, the whole planet would be dead by now.okayface.jpg). What i try to do is focus in the good side of the person in question. For example, in tumblr, i don't keep going just into the person's art, i read his/her opinion too, his/her pov, read a post about his/her day, so i can at least see a little bit of him/her as a normal person, and feel something like...i don't know how to put it, but i kind of start to see that the person have problems and doubts and pains too, and if i decide the guy is nice according to my own idea of a nice person, i can feel a little more better and even empathy or admiration to the person in question (of course, if the guy is a jerk, i will only look his art, hehe). This' something i do every now and then to try to keep control of my own inner hate.
The other thing i do is...well, practice. I know it sucks to heard this every time (oh, practice is improvement, yada yada), but it's true. Who said perfection is easy to achieve...? So i do it, and it's kinda nice: it's a delight when i draw, i love to draw just by the act...

If ya want more practical advice with art skill or such, i suggest you take a look at the workshop. I tend too to look at tumblr looking for anatomical sketchs of good drawers and stuff. If you want, i can send ya something.

Well, i hope i have helped ya. And sorry about the bad english...

I know the feeling. I know how it feels to be frustrated and single and think you're in a seemingly unending stream of bad luck, where everyone reacts badly to things you never meant to piss anyone off by saying or doing and not have anyone's approval no matter what.

You know what would be nice? Before my sweetheart takes off, if she'd give me a tiny heads-up, you know? Just to let me know I shouldn't hang around, thinking she'll be back in ten minutes or so.

Because that's what I've been doing for the past hour and a half, and when I'm left waiting, without any word of warning or explanation, I tend to get worried. Hell, she could even say "Imma go somewhere else, because I'm sick of you, so fuck off for a couple hours, you lazy fat cunt," and it'd be better than being left here alone with my overactive imagination.

So there's a show going up at my theatre company, performed by a famous transsexual performer. I'm not going, simply because it's late at night and I have to work the next day, but it got me thinking about the whole transsexual/cisgendered, etc. thing.

I mean, of course, we're all people, and as such, I feel we should all be given the same rights and freedoms, regardless of our gender, sexuality, identity, etc. I'm not trying to start a fight over this issue or anything, and people's personal choices/personal opinions/personal states of being are none of my concern.

But I just feel like it's going too far, now. Like bisexuality. How many people out there are actually bisexual, versus how many are saying they are for attention/to fit in, or because they're not comfortable coming out as gay? I have 12 friends who identified as bi back in high school. 3 are now gay, 8 identify as completely heterosexual (and two of them actually deny ever being bi, apparently now considering it gross), and only one is still bi.
How many people might be doing that with this whole transgendered thing?
I was talking with someone on tumblr once, who was probably 15-16, and she thought she might be transgendered because she liked wearing boy clothes better. Had nothing to do with anatomy, or sexual desire, or mental gender, or anything like that. They just wanted comfier pants.
Now, to me, that's ridiculous, and while I know that not every trans person out there is like that, I just have to wonder how many are. How many just see this as some sort of new crazy fad.

And the whole trans thing still makes me uncomfortable, simply because I can't fully understand it, or at least understand how, all of a sudden there seem to be so many people who feel they were born as the wrong gender. It seemed like there were practically none for a long time, and then in the last ten years or so, they just all popped up out of the woodwork. Is it just that we're growing more accepting of it, so they feel all right 'coming out'? Is there something being pumped into our food, making some of us develop gender issues? I just don't know, but I wish I did.

I don't know. I feel like a bad person, but at the same time, this is just how I feel about this issue. Should I feel bad for feeling this way?

Anyways, in other news, am sick with a cold. Call in sick to work. They call me later, tell me our backlog is low, so I now have both Friday and Monday off. Five-day weekend ftw. I'd be happier about it if I didn't feel like a gallon of snot was dripping down my throat.

Wow. There's a lot of problematic stuff going on in your post... You probably should feel bad about how you just said what you said, but feeling bad about that isn't going to do anything if you're not going to use it to motivate yourself to change so you don't end up hurting people unintentionally. It would be wise to keep these sorts of feelings to yourself until you can express them in a way that doesn't seem so dismissive.

Teenagers are teenagers. If you can show me a person who had themselves totally figured out by age 16 or even 18 or even 21, I would be surprised. Just because people change in that period of time doesn't make it any less legitimate state of being. Why people would believe that being trans* is a cool thing I would have NO idea, honestly. I mean, I guess some people find it cool to be subjected to violence, rejection, discrimination, etc. Totally a cool thing. Sure, there are "posers" as with anything else that ever existed, but to say that it's a fad these days only further dismisses the plight of REAL people with REAL feelings.

Identities are fluid. Sexualities too. People change. It's a natural state of being, both physically and mentally.

Maybe you don't understand because you always felt you were cisgendered and why would you have any sort of dissonance about that when society actively encourages cisgenderness? Trans* people don't get that luxury. Society tells them they are wrong. The reason you're probably seeing more now than before is because there are more outlets, more support available out there to find more folks like themselves. Don't shit all over that by saying it's a fad. Do some research in trans* communities over the internet. Read articles or blogs from trans* people themselves. The resources are out there. That way, you will know how to distinguish the real people from the wannabes, and your confusion won't hurt anyone.
>> CA No. 11837
My intention was never to hurt. More than anything, I'm expression my own frustration. I don't understand the whole trans thing, and it bothers me that I don't.
I don't understand the fad of it, myself, but it's true, there are people out there who see it as something to get attention, like cutting, or anorexia. Again, not saying every trans is like that, or that even the majority is like that, but there are people out there who have said 'Mommy, Daddy, I'm a woman trapped in a man's body' for some sort of attention.
In all honesty, I have tried to do research- for the longest time, I didn't know what 'cisgendered' meant, and when I googled it, all I got were pro-trans, hate-on-everyone-else type blogs, unfortunately. People that saw the 'normals' as something to overcome and destroy and hate. Doesn't reflect too well on the group, those types of people, I must say. I know they're not all hateful people, but it is sad that any are.
It's not so much a case of 'I don't understand how someone can question what gender they are', with me. Just 'I don't know why there are so many popping up all of sudden'. I have to wonder if it's simply the large amount of media outlets, or if there are genuinely more trans people today than there were fifty years ago.

Fifty years ago most people didn't know what transsexuality WAS, and anyone who DID know what it was THOUGHT IT WAS A SICK DISGUSTING THING. So nowadays, when being trans is still considered a sick disgusting thing by MOST people, but SOME people are okay with it, so you can actually see 1) the fact that it even EXISTS, that other people have the same feelings as you, and 2) that you can do things about it and it will be okay. No shit people are more likely to come out as trans now than fifty years ago.

And it's no one's fucking place to police someone else's gender. "I think some people are faking it" so the fuck what? What difference does it make? What gives you EVER the right to judge whether another person's sexuality or gender is "real enough" for you?
>> CA No. 11840
Whoa, whoa, did you miss the part where I said 'I believe everyone deserves equal rights and it's no business of mine what they feel they are'?

I'm not saying it's a disgusting thing, nor am I saying people shouldn't be trans. But I AM saying that it bothers me that there are people out there that would use something like it for attention. I feel like that's only going to hurt those who actually are trans. I'm not judging anyone in particular, nor am I questioning whether their position on this is 'real' or not. But there are people out there that I know are just doing it for attention (yes, someone has actually admitted to me that they did this), and that bothers me. I know not everyone is, but the fact that even ONE has done it, I see as a problem.

Don't worry, i got what you said. I kinda agree at some points, since i used to know some guys and girls that were all like "my god, i'm so bi because i like to hold my female friend's hand and i like to hug her" or "look at me, i'm a man with a female mind, so i'll totally do 'girly' things like (insert here some stereotypical image society have about act feminine) and some day i'll change my gender via cirurgical intervetions!" And now the majority is hetero. And don't like to talk about "that times".
Of course, i made a funny and exaggerated picture of their acts, but i kind of remember sometimes those people almost did like i described.
It was to a level that, if i was a trans or a bi, i would be offended by the mental image that these type of people do about my way of life, choices, etc, just because they think it's "cool" or "fashionable" to act like this. And i had trans and bi friends that actually got offended and i totally agreed to them. I didn't mind those guys, even though they were annoying, but i could sympathize with my trans and bi acquaintances when they got pissed off with it, since it's almost a form of twist the conception of find out about your sexual orietations or somethin'.

I know YOU didn't say it was sick and disgusting, but you did say ". Just 'I don't know why there are so many popping up all of sudden'. I have to wonder if it's simply the large amount of media outlets, or if there are genuinely more trans people today than there were fifty years ago." People are always going WHY ARE THERE SO MANY MORE TRANS NOW and it's usually tied in with I DON'T BELIEVE ALL THESE PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY ARE TRANS and so on and I was explaining WHY there seem to be more than there were fifty years ago: /because fifty years ago being trans was considered way more sick and disgusting than it is now/, not because everyone is suddenly making it up to be popular.

Yes, some people do make it up for attention. But from there People in General get to this mindset where because SOME people are making it up, EVERYONE is UNDER SUSPICION of making it up. Every single girl who is actually bi gets put under scrutiny as to whether she is "bi enough" or "just doing it for attention", and while you can say that's ultimately the fault of the people who ARE doing it for attention, /the people doing the questioning about it/ are the people who hold the opinion you do. It's literally a slippery slope! The same thing happens to trans people, especially ftm trans people for some reason! "are you trans enough? are you REALLY ACTUALLY FOR REALS trans? because i bet you're not! because some people are just doing it for attention!"

The fact that some people do it for attention DOES hurt the people who aren't, but it's not the people doing it for attention who do the hurt directly. The direct hurt comes from people who think "some people are doing it for attention therefore I am right to be suspicious of anyone"

Your frequent use of caps and exclamation points makes me feel as if you are yelling at me, and it makes me feel uncomfortable. I just thought I'd address that, if that's not the feeling you intended to evoke.

To address there being more trans people than there were: Coming out as trans is partly physical, and partly emotional/mental. The physical part lies in the hormones, in the brain chemistry- the part that tells you that you are in the wrong body. The mental/emotional part is the part that makes you have the desire to seek out others like you, seek some sort of acceptance, understanding, etc.

What I'm wondering if it is simply a case of the media outlets, providing more people with the emotional/mental ease and desire to explore this part of themselves, or if there are more people experiencing the physical symptoms of being in the wrong body.

It's not too far-fetched. More and more new diseases are coming out every day that we've never seen before. My mother and I were discussing this yesterday, and when she went to school in the 60's, she never knew anyone with autism, or with any sort of allergy...

I just wonder if it's a case of our world changing physically (pollutants in the environment, drugs in our food, and such), or socially (technology providing more sources of information, communication, etc.)

It's less of an issue specifically about transgender people, and more about me wanting to understand why and how our world is changing in this way. I don't see it as a bad thing, but I just want to understand it.
Now, I never said I judge everyone out there who says they are trans, or that I question whether they are or not. But if someone says that they are transsexual, and they are a person that I know are prone to following stupid fads for the sake of fitting in, then I will be suspicious. A friend I had in high school went through various stages of anorexia, cutting, bisexuality, homosexuality, then transgenderism, and now he just identifies as a straight, pot-loving mackdaddy, and denies ever coming out of any sort of closet to us. So, if I meet another person like him, it makes me wary, and unfortunately, there seem to be a lot of those on the internet. Anyone ever seen that image floating around of a 12-year-old girl's profile page? "I'm totally bi, but I've never been with a girl! Ew!"
In contrast, I have a friend I met through theatre, and he (Ftm trans) is just a well-adjusted person, with this different aspect to his life. He never had to follow fads or anything like this. He was just a man in a woman's body, and that was all there was to the issue. Him, I never had a problem with, because he wasn't some whiny little twit- he was an adult about this condition, which is all I want people to be. I want everyone out there to recognize that it is a real state of being- not something you can take on to appear different/exotic/unique, or to get attention. I want people to be adults about it. That's all. If everyone saw it for what it was, then I'd have no problem at all. I have the same problem with people who try to use cutting and anorexia to the same end, without really realizing how seriously ill the people who really have those conditions are. (Not to imply that people who are trans are somehow ill, mind you.) It's disrespectful, is what it is.
>> BR No. 11848

Well, don't worry, personally, i have never judged or even mistreated (for an instant, i don't mistreat anyone)who did it for clearly for attention or because it looked "cool".

But, well, i can understand why the real trans and bis would be offended by it...

So, then, unfortunately, i can tell it by myself but... probably there's people who do exactly as you said and go judging everyone around - real trans or not - and make everybody unnecesseraly unconfortable but... i don't think the problem is most with people who come thinking "why the hell this guy is acting like this? Why he thinks a trans would be like this?" in a healthy way than with people who had this misconception of what means to weigh their choices, have an deep and personal agreement to themselves and come to the conclusion that yeah, i don't go like this. I feel much more confortable like that. Even because most of these people, in a backwards away, had the same misunderstoods and stereotypcal ideas of how a trans or a bi might "look" or "act" - when he do know there is no such a thing like "i'm like this, so i have to follow the manual and do what people-like-these do" - of some people who actually hold prejudice against trans and bis. They sometimes have the same misconceptions the majority of society have and then these mistakes, in my opinion, characterizes a type of offense to the trans and bis.
I hope i have made myself clear... and that i didn't sound prejudice, because this is not my intention - and i know i don't hold grudge against them.

ok I'm the >1844 guy and i want to clarify ftr that I am both bi and trans and I have personal life experience from LOTS of people using the "some people do it for attention" thing as an excuse to overanalyze and question my life decisions and the lives and decisions of friends i have who are bi and/or trans and that is why I get really knee-jerk angry about it: it affects my actual life irl.

Some person treating bi/trans stuff as a fad they can play at like a game is definitely insulting and dismissive, but if you're not them you don't know and it's really not your place to judge ANYWAY. Identifying one way once and then changing your mind about it DOES NOT necessarily mean that you were making it up the first time, even though some people do probably whatever it's their life and it doesn't effect me if they change their minds later! Sexuality is fluid, a person can legitimately think they're one thing and then after trying it out for a while and thinking about it they can legitimately change their mind. A person being wrong about their sexuality doesn't hurt anyone directly. People judging other people about whether or not they are wrong about their sexuality hurts lots of people directly. I'm glad y'all have never tried to hurt anyone's feelings about it but I am having a hard time explaining why the underlying ISSUE is more important :|

Besides, just like Iz, I'm also sick of being accused of being closed-minded all because I get skeptic when I hear stuff like "OMG I'm SOOOOO bi, but I could never kiss a gurrrl!" Being a bisexual woman, it's slightly offensive to me.

Iz, the reason there seem to be more trans people around now is simply because people are more accepting nowadays. People are more comfortable to say "Yes, I'm a man, but I prefer to dress as a woman, because it feels right," or "Yes, I'm physically a woman, but I feel like a man." The number of people haven't risen, but the number of people willing to come out and let themselves to what feels right has.

Also, to avoid huge entries again, I shall no longer 'chan while drunk.

New feelings, unrelated to worldly speculation and transexuality.

Okay, so we've been redoing the study for a few months now. New paint, new hardwood laminate, and we got rid of the old desk to make way for brand new built-in shelves, for all my books. For the past few weeks, my books have been living in the basement, in boxes, under the coffee table, on chairs- wherever there's room, and even places where there isn't.
So today, shelves were done, and I got to put all my books in a brand new home.

JESUS FUCK I own a lot of books. And I just had to stand there for a few moments, with my hands over my mouth, in awe of how wonderful it all was. 4 feet, by 1 foot, by 8 feet. Nothing but books. It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

My friend has been acting excessively affectionate to me, putting her head on my shoulder, doing that arm over the other person's shoulder thing, sitting/standing as close as physically possible to me, etc. it had gotten to the point where the other friends were starting to comment on it. But at the same time she was talking about how she doesn't want to think about relationships until she is older, emphasizing that we are good friends, and telling the others that there is nothing wrong with a friend being so touchy with another friend, even though I am the only one she does this to. In other words, she has been sending mixed messages. So I told her that if she is really wanting to be just friends, the touching has to stop. No one else has ever acted like that around me, and I don't know what else to do. She probably didn't mean for this, but the whole thing makes me feel tricked/stupid and unwanted.

Uuuugh. I'm doing so bad in my math class.

I'm trying, I really am, but I've gotten D's on two of the tests so far. I can't afford tutoring and the on-campus tutors will only help you with about one problem at a time, and EVERYONE wants to talk to them. I'm trying everything to get it into my head, but I just... cannot math.

I really needed to get my grades up this semester, so at the very least I could get my good student discount back on insurance. But at this rate it's looking like my decision whether or not to transfer is gonna be made for me.

I know how you feel. I'm terrible at math and I was always getting C's and D's on math in high school. (But I don't have to take math anymore because I go to art kid school! woo!)

Hey, you know, why don't you talk to your teacher about it? Tell him/her exactly what you told us. I've found that when teachers know something is wrong and that your trying, they tend to help you more, and are more willing to do things like stay after school with you and help you. That's what teachers are for.

Plus, for all you know other people in your class could be having the same problem.

Don't sweat it, just focus on doing your best, and as long as you're doing that, thats all that matters.

I had a dream that I was in a taiwanese shop near some tourist zone that was rickety and pretty shit looking. There were a lot of people there, and my cousin warned me that he hated going in there. So I went in there and ordered some popcorn chicken, and suddenly I hear this child screaming "MOMMY NO, PLEASE MOMMY" And it's crying so loud, I immediately turn around and see this lady with a partially cooked LIVE BABY ELEPHANT (about the size of a bowling ball) on her plate. The elephant is crying and calling out for her mommy while the lady is pulling on the elephants trunk and trying to get it into smaller pieces... and this goes on into what feels like forever until one of the waiters comes out with a knife and cuts off the trunk. At this point the baby elephant is shrieking for its mom right until the point where it gets dumped into a stew.

I... I don't know. I feel traumatized by my own dream. I can't get that baby elephants voice out of my head.

Friend 1 was unable to join our group gathering on saturday, and as such, she missed out on our planning to play Dungeons and Dragons. So today I walked over to her house to help her create a character and fill her in on various amusing annecdotes that had occurred at the previously mentioned gathering. When she opened the door, she rather angrilly asked what I wanted. I attempted to explain what I was there for, but I decided to confirm that she did indeed intend to join us in our game. Quickly, she yelled NO at me and slammed the door. Now this behavior is most unlike her normal demeanor, and so I immediately messaged Friends 2 and 3 about this rather unusual happening. Friend 2 said that she is likely experiencing PMS, and that I should wait a while before trying to talk to her again. Friend 3 said that I, or someone else in the group, had done something to piss her off. To my knowledge, I had done nothing wrong to her, and she seemed her normal, happy self the last time I had seen her, though she did show some regret that she would be unable to join us. So I contacted Friend 4, and he had no idea what I was talking about.
I would like to think that Friend 2 is correct, and this will pass. I do not like when my friends are upset, it makes me feel like I have failed them.

After having the bums for the past couple days, playing "psychological akido" to help the chan out has made me feel so much better.
Slowly pick away at arguments, debunk/accept/try to find out what they /really/ mean, and have everyone calm their tits. Maybe I should write an article about communication in an argument?
People just mainly want to be heard and understood. if you understand,even partially,were someone is coming from,and you can get them to understand your side as well, everyone wins.
Although, if someone is going to be an asshole for no legit reason, picking through arguments works too. Keep your chill,and they will make themselves look like asshats.

I hate my boyfriend's parents so fucking much.

He needs therapy and anti-anxiety medication, and while I understand that they want him to get a job to help pay for it, they just expect him to conjure one up out of thin air. They just say "Well get a job then." But he doesn't have a state ID or a license or any money, so he has no money to take the bus or pay the fee to get the ID, not to mention no way to get TO the job if he can manage to get one. They won't teach him to drive, or lend him the $20, or even leave him food when they leave for the weekend. He has an online job, but it hardly pays anything because it's sort of "on-call" and they only need him maybe once a month, if that.

They claim it's because "they have no money," but his mother just bought a $228 Michael Kors tote and a matching $148 dollar iPad case for her new iPad, his dad bought a $300 fucking bongo drum, and they both got the new iPhones with Syri.

I apologise for the double post, but I again wanted to highlight something for people here who have problems.

Should anyone ever need someone to talk to, or to listen, give advice or just be there, I would like to help, to be that guy. I know it can be hard to do so sometimes, but I have found that sometimes saying something to someone that can either be there as a friend or a stranger, depending on what you need, can help.

So wether we have spoken before or not, if you know me, like me or even don't like me, you can add me on steam at Donstheman any time you like, no need to explain yourself, even if its just to add and remove for that one time thing.

Belated update. The good news is that Friend 1 was upset over a misunderstanding, and now that that has been sorted out, she is no longer angry at any of us. The not so good news is that she is this friend
I've had a bit of a crush on her over the years we have known eachother, but since I have practically zero experience with relationships, her seeming to have similar feelings was honestly a bit of a shock. After the above misunderstanding was fixed, I told her that I liked her. She said that she is not ready for a relationship. She did break up with her old boyfriend, another friend in our group, a few months ago, and still seems kind of annoyed with him.
It's just disappointing. First time a girl acts even remotely like she likes me in years, and she says she is not ready for a relationship.

There's blood, pain, rape and lots and fuckin' lots of Scout mental+physical abuse and it's twisted and fucked up the way i like. To end it all, there were the updates of "Blowing Off Steam" and the perfection of all perfections, "It gets me places" (must be somethin' sweet, "normal" and fluff inside my list of preferences, just to vary things a little bit every now and then).

I am in heaven, covered on blood and cum of fictional characters. I'm H.A.P.P.Y.

(oh ...sorry about the bad english)

Sowiie, guess i got too excited.

Just ignore me.

Oh, anyway, too bad i can't praise the author of "Two Worlds". She disabled anon comments...probably due to the amount of butthurted girls trolling around ff.net. Too bad.

Deal with it, nerd.

In other news, for the first time in a long, long while, I feel completely comfortable with being in love with somebody. I know I'm a shitty person, but I'm so blown back by how much they care about me and forgive me and how deliriously happy I am when I think about them that I just... everything feels like it's going to be alright. And I have no reason to fret.

So I went on a TF2 hiatus until one of my friends forced me to play. And now with a few lucky, coincidental events, I've found a kink for cuban-heeled boots and a particular interest in sniper rifles.

Also: Happy about getting a hang of Dwarf Fortress. So much Fun.

Good news all around, hoo-rah!

I wonder if that's what it is. I don't honestly know my dad well, either he's at work or he's yelling at me so much I don't want to spend any time with him. And I regret it. I wish I was close to my parents, but they don't approve of anything I do and I get really frustrated. I hope everything works out with you and your stepdad.

My grandmother has trouble with using her computer, so she gets me to visit and do some stuff for her.
Today she asked me to delete the history on her firefox because it was riddled with sites that were 'not very nice' from when my brother visited one day.
I take a look through and find a fuckload of pages of porn featuring animals and little kids. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FUCK.
It's bad enough that he was watching porn ON MY GRANDMOTHER'S COMPUTER but seriously? SERIOUSLY?
I can't put into words how fucking DISTURBED I am. Also I have two dogs at home that he's home alone with all say every day while my mom and my dad and me are all at work.
Something tells me that when I move out in September, I'm never coming back. Those are the two sexual things that I find absolutely disgusting. Weird kinks are one thing, but this is just... eugh. I can't puke enough times for how disgusted I am.

Welcome to my world, Stubs. Sometimes you just don't know someone until you find their internet search history...

I'm almost tempted to advise you to tell your parents, for the safety of your dogs, but that would open a whole huge can of worms...

My mom knows. My grandmother told her. She just hasn't done anything about it, and unless someone does talk to him and tell him that he shouldn't do that, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, he's probably going to do it again. We just got a new desktop for home and something tells me that history on it's clogged up with this shit too. I'm going to look tomorrow and if I find any more, I'm going to show it to my mom and tell her to talk to him about it.
Knowing my luck, she'll accuse me of it, despite the fact that I haven't used the desktop at all, except to play AoE II after work a couple of times.

So the boyfriend and I talked to a lady about adopting her puppy that she couldn't take with her to Chicago. She was really nice and talked about how much she'd love for us to have the dog, and that she'd drop her off on Friday.

Never called, never showed, wouldn't answer her phone. If she changed her mind, it would have been fine, but jesus, would it hurt to let me know before I took the time to puppy-proof my room? I'm glad I already had the supplies or else I would have been out the money for puppy chow.

Okay, so since I'm just a contract worker, we sometimes get days off when the coupon backlog is low, because otherwise the full-time people don't have enough coupons to scan.
Now, I'm thrilled to have two days off, because I want to do shit with my acapella projects.
Friend at work says, "Oh yeah, she's okay with having it off, because she doesn't have bills to pay, LOL."
Bitch, I'm going to a school that costs $14k, and I've only got $4k saved up, after not spending a single penny for three solid months. That's counting the $1.5k I had saved up from my last job. Yes, I don't pay rent, or for food, because my parents rock, but I'm only here for another three months, and I didn't even make a full $3k in the last chunk. I like having a day off, because, unlike you, I need a job that mentally stimulates me. Sometimes, scanning coupons for 8 hours makes me squirrelly, and I want to leave. It doesn't mean I'm dancing around my house, chanting, "YAY! I'M ESSENTIALLY EIGHTY DOLLARS POORER!" (not counting deductions).

Just...fuck off. I don't pay bills, but I do need the money. Don't act like I'm here for the fun of it. Coupons are NOT that fun.
I mean I did get one that was for a free banana yesterday- just one free banana, no specific brand- and that amused me, along with the time I got over 2000 coupons for Vienna Sausage in one order, but still.

I also feel bad, because when she says shit like that, I just sit there and look at her, like, "You have about three teeth in your head, cashed in your RRSP to go to Cuba, with the reasoning that, because your husband had them, you didn't need one, insisted that a metaphor and an oxymoron were the same thing, and plan to retire in six years, at the age of fifty-five, with nothing in the way of pension except CPP, and buy obviously hot (as in stolen) items from Hong Kong and don't even realize it. You are the absolute essence of everything I never want to be."

I feel bad that I have sort of a snob complex, but at the same time, part of me feels it's a valid one to have. I'd feel worse if she wasn't such a bitch, too.

Because sex is all men are interested in, right? They're not capable of wanting to feel an intimate connection with somebody or wanting to find someone they can entrust with their feelings so they don't have to keep it all bottled up until they explode and self-immolate, right?
Because when a guy wants a relationship and is disappointed he can't find one, he's just a chauvinist pig thinking with his dick?
>> US No. 11986
no,but when someone uses the term "friendzoned" seriously they're most likely an entitled douchebag.

It has nothing to do with sex. I don't give a crap about sex. If I wanted sex, well there are easier ways to get that. I just want someone to love me. But no! No one ever has. I try to get into a relationship, and we inevitably wind up as just friends. It has nothing to do with entitlement, but with loneliness.

You're not lonely. You have friends. That's something to appreciate, isn't it? Sure, these girls are interested in a romantic relationship with you, but they still want to be around you, and spend time with you. And guess what? When they inevitably fall in love with an asshole, you're the one who gets to be there to comfort them, and be with them on a far more intimate level than any simple boyfriend could be.

It's easier to blame the woman than it is to do some self evaluation. Perhaps it's your severe personality flaws that's preventing you from forming a meaningful relationship.
>> US No. 11994
or maybe there's nothing wrong with the guy, but the chemistry on the other person's end doesn't quite fit. And there's nothing wrong with that, though it sucks.
Also, orientations may not fit at times!
difference is if you think someone "owes" you a relationship, then you are an entitled douchebag. wanting a relationship in general isn't.
>> US No. 11995
Who said anything about blaming the woman? The only constant factor is myself, so I know I am either doing something wrong or as
said, I am just not meeting the right person.

I never intended for this to become an argument, just for it to be a simple expression of my disappointment.

Anon, no. You are beautiful.

Events with astronomical odds of occurring are occurring out there, like oxygen turning into gold. Millions upon millions of cells compete to create life, for generation after generation until, finally, your mother loves a man, and against unfathomable odds you are born. To distill so specific a form, from all that chaos. It's like turning air into gold. A miracle.

Every time you so much as speak to another person you are impacting a giant equation we call the universe by affecting that precise moment in their life. What you say might hurt them or offend them, but if they let that get them down that is nothing you can help in retrospect. The best thing to do is look forward. No matter what anyone does or says they can easily become a positive number in the grand equation by trying. It's never too late.

You're not a disgusting person. Hitler was a disgusting person. Until you kill at least one person, just chin up. Do your best. It's all the universe could ask of you.

(This is my personal justification for being a dick all the time and somehow I manage to get people to love me for it-- there's hope for you.)


...Uuh, my feels are... I'm incredibly pressured by my finals. I'm wondering, naturally, if I have what it takes to be an artist. I'm being hit hard with the reality that I chose a difficult, time-intensive, and creativity-dependant field and yet I know I'm much less cut out for anything else.

I'm also becoming increasingly embarrassed when people ask me about my schooling because a lot of people don't think there's a career in art (pfft) and game art just seems to sound like bullshit to a lot of (mostly older) people. I've also gotten ridiculed twice in a couple months for thinking a female has any place in the video-game industry... I know all this stuff is stupid, wrong, and pretty fucked up, but it's hard to smile and shrug it off when I reeeeally want to rail into people who think these ways.

Anywho my project is due in like a month and there's no way I'm going to be able to model an entire map by myself by then, haha... Luckily my process sketchbook is bursting with material, and the college I'm transferring to only requires I pass and not get a merit or distinction. (I would like a better grade than "pass" though!) I guess I can write a few pages on how I learned why I couldn't manage to make a whole map solo in the space of a couple months!

I get really discouraged coming to the chan anymore because I want to post my work and get polite crits, but this isn't 2008-2009 anymore and I just see a lot of dickery being tossed around.

Picture related, it's something I wanted to get critted.

Hopefully, though, I get this job for the summer and I can take the time to look for another full time job.

After lots of IRL drama, I find myself wandering back here looking for old friends, or at least old draw buddies. It's very weird not having a community or niche to just casually go back into.
I've been trying to draw again and have been hoping to find a buddy, mentor, or hell anybody to just look at what I have and critique it. I haven't drawn in so long and I'm trying to get back into it, I really miss making things.

tl;dr so ronery ;;
