Well, I am being very careful with the furries I'm getting acquainted with that are beyond my local friends. While I can understand their fetishes can be seen as odd to many (I have to draw the line somewhere for their porn), I don't see what's so bad about the fursuiting aspect. They can actually look adorable when you see them in person and to me, it's not much different than those dressing up as various Disney characters in the theme parks. That said, there's some red zones from the fandom that I cannot tolerate at all,
I can stomach furries better than bronies. All I can think of is that My Little Pony was a show that was around when I was a kid. It was meant for little girls. I swear, if I, at the age of 8, walked into class wearing a MLP t-shirt, I would have gotten my ass kicked by my classmates for being a fucking pansy. Now it's okay for teenage boys to be obsessed over this shit. I just don't get it. :\ DAMN TEH INTERWEBZ.
babyfurs being the best example... I just don't understand them at all and it can't be a sign of a sane person. You can certainly quarantine them. :)
Don't even want to know.
Well, I can't judge you over DBZ for anything at all. If I play Yugioh then what right do I have? :P
Come on, man. I was 13, sitting 3 inches away from the screen, watching as Goku turns Super Sayian for the first time. IT WAS GOOSEBUMP-RAISING EPIC! I, as recently as last year watched the whole DBZ series from start to finish; it was cool, but not nearly as epic as it seemed when I was a kid. :(
Just nerdy, and there's nothing wrong with that. :D
Yeah, I was willing to listen to her on all her interests. She does expertise in dancing and I've never been much of a dancer all my life, unless headbanging and pushing shit around in moshpits counts for something, haha.
I don't know how much heavy metal she knew but she's good to know Burzum, Diablo Swing Orchestra and even Sunn 0))). Only a fan of DSO here but Sunn 0))) aren't the most accessible metal band to get into. Infact, she knew that I liked Helloween a lot and when she drew a picture of my dragon character, she did put a Helloween T-shirt on me and that put a huge smile on my face. :D
She probably knows more metal than I do! Now, if you're talking anything from the rock/metal spectrum from 1970 to 2000, then I might stand more of a chance.
Still, there was still a ton more we could have explored together. Maybe since we're still on best friends status despite the break up, I can still show her a lot from metal.
Definitely, if you guys are still able to maintain a friendship after a falling out, that's awesome. I actually envy that.
He's not so much on music in general but he knows I like my metal a lot. Still a cool guy for sure. Keep in mind that I do have a fair amount of friends who aren't as big into heavy metal as myself, one friend and my sister are. There's different interests but we're still all cool together.
I remember hanging out with a bunch of Spanish dudes at my last job. We had nothing in common, save that we all did same job, yet we still had a great time, talking about...well, nothing in particular. lol And now I know how to call someone a faggot in Spanish! :D
there was unfortunately an argument with one of her roommates over it that night.
Roommates always seemed like a prickly subject to me, though I have thankfully been able to avoid any thus far. I could even see good friends getting on each other's nerves when faced with each other day in and day out like that. (Then again, I could also see how parties would get on one's nerves as well, if you're not a part of it.) :P
It was a really sad time when they all moved onto secondary school while two of us were a year behind. The academic year between myself and those who I knew was always the worst part of school for me. When they all left for the next part of their lives, I was stuck behind. Some of them I've not been able to ever see since they all left so who knows where some of them are now?
Wow, that is kind of a sad story. You were so young then, it would be probably more than a little awkward to try and find some of these people now...
It was worse in secondary school considering all that hell I had to go through. Every single fucking day there I was always afraid of being bullied and generally it happened. The teachers and support staff never did a single goddamn thing to help me and some of them only made it worse for me. By the last year of school I was just ready to get myself expelled and fight those who would attempt to screw around with me. I did have a few fights as a result but it never got me into huge trouble, surprisingly enough. Again, the most crucial part of my life and I could have thrown it all away but the exam results I got were all passable and within the highest grades I could possibly get.
Ugh, I do know what it's like to get picked on, though my situation in high school wasn't quite as bad as what you described. I remember my best friend and I were always hanging out, you know, attached at the hip, and there were a couple dumbasses who apparently had nothing better to do than ask if we were "gay" all the time and to spread rumors and shit. (Yet neither of us ever did anything to foster such an idea -we were just unfortunate enough to be chosen for their stupid game, apparently.) I laugh about it, now that it's so far removed, though. Kids can be so damn immature; I just can't believe that I actually let it bother me at the time.
Even though I did have a hellish time, I can easily agree that at least it didn't turn to catastrophic events like attempting to burn the school down and having myself stuck in an asylum for a few years (*cough*Sirtom*cough*)
Yeah, I think a little more highly of you than that. How does a dragon buy petrol, anyway? Oh wait, dragon doesn't NEED petrol. lol
However, even if I may have not had the worst time imagineable at school, how the situation was handled was still inexcusable for them. Even to this day I still hate them all and would rather not see them anywhere in sight and if they did try to approach me, I won't mind being openly honest about my own feelings and tell them to FUCK OFF!
I remember you saying you'd never want to work at your old school before. After reading this post I can understand why. :(
My dad tried to ask me if I remembered her and I told him that I didn't have fond memories at the school at all and he spoke against me for it. That alone really killed my mood and it didn't help when further on the night my dad decided to poke fun at me for various things so I was damn close to storming out the restaurant and heading back home.
Wow, what a bullshit way for your dad to act, especially at a family occasion like that. At least you were man enough to stick it out -I probably would have told him off and walked out.
And even if this shit happened seven years ago, there is still that one that I still despise a lot for what she did to me one day. Due to computer issues, I was under stress one day and wasn't able to do a lot of work so she called me in and told me off and she should have fucking known better that she should have dealt with someone with a mental disability a lot better than that. I tend to not excuse myself with saying "Oh I have Aspergers" but when it comes to a pupil in a school and you treat them badly despite knowing what stresses they have, you're a sick fuck and I hope karma hit you hard somewhere down the road!
:'( I can't even fathom talking to somebody like that, and to a kid no less. Maybe she'll get hit by a train, or maybe one of them double decker buses you got over there? :x
Whoooa, I guess I said a lot about school there but I suppose if I start looking back at things, I'm gonna go on a train of thought. I apologise if you actually read through all of that but I suppose it helps to explore the mind. Hell, I'd be amazed if anyone else actually read all of this.
I'm still here. ;P
