Hmmm ... I don't like to rant much but feeling down at the mo ... I find certain things so irritating plus I feel pretty paranoid that some one I know may of bad mouthed me to some one I like basically warning them off me ...

I could be overreacting but I don't know ... ughh feel shitty basically.

I want to join in with the Homestuck group at October Expo because I usually have a good time and meet great people at cosplay meetups but my social anxiety has another thing coming. I don't know anybody who will be there on the Saturday so that doesn't help matters, and I don't want to leave my non-cosplaying friends out anyway. But my main problem is my anxiety and I just feel like I don't have the confidence to go and meet up regardless of everything else. Bluh.

And I'm just really lonely lately, which also sucks.

Balls, balls, balls. With a side ordering of crap. D:
Ran out of resin for my hooves and now I'm having to resort to filler on top of the resin. Not happy about this, I have no idea if it will work out. D:

Didn't realise you had to audition to be in our Uni orchestra so I don't actually have any music or preparation for it... Gotta wait til next year to join as it's impossible to even relearn something in under a week without doing a crap performance or putting in hours of practise a day which I don't have time for :/

Kinda sucks because I'm the right grade to be in it and they even said they needed more violinists. Pahhhh!

I am seriously hoping the String orchestra is going to run again this year and that they don't hold auditions so that I can join that. Otherwise I will have to wait til Xmas to play with my local county orchestra to play again. And I will be crap by the time that comes cause I've been lacking practise for 3 months .__.

Wish I played brass or sax now. Then I could join Jazz orchestra and not have to audition

Couple of things.

First, the heat is still too much. Managed tyo go out without feeling too bad today, though yesterday left me with one hell of a headache.
Not what you want before your going to a comedians show.

Also, the fridge-freezer packed up this morning. Wouldbt be so bad, but the family shop is done on a thurday, so alot of stuff we just bought is probably gonna have to be chucked out now...

But yeah, a lot of people I know don't seem to agree with the heat very well. Have you talked to your boss about it? If it's a medical condition maybe they could make a special arrangement? Even if you can just go for a glass of water every now and then.

And play Clock Tower 3. "Hmmm, think I'm safe here." *Serial Killer ambush* "HOSHI- WTF-" *Dies*


Unfortunately, it's a skin condition so glasses of water do not help (and we're allowed to have a bottle of water or squash, even a cup of tea, as long as it's out of the way of the customers). As it stands, the room I was working in is a customer free zone so we're allowed to eat/drink whatever but it has no ventilation in it (which is being complained about constantly by all members of staff who have to work down there) so the air is just hot and heavy (in the winter, I've been told it's actually quite pleasant). My condition was aggravated more so since it's mainly focused on my chest, which I had to use in order to get mail order catalogue boxes down. Which are heavy. Really heavy. One box contains 275 32 paged catalogues O_o

Hmmm, no thanks on the game. Things jumping out at me = screaming. Heck, I still scream whenever the redeads in Ocarina of Time scream. That's how wussy I am. Queen of the wusses! XD



Job hunting is still being evil. REALLY EVIL. Primark has a stupid "end the sequence thing". For the life of me I couldn't work it out. It sucked.

And boots has a horrible application progress as well!

I'm gonna be so poor this month, what with not having a job any more and Batman Arkham City and The Sims 3 Pets coming out on the same day, then Novemeber having Assassins Creed Revelations. And with the costumes I want to make for Kita (which are always expensive for me cause I'm an idiot like that)

Agh, well that sucks! I guess you can't realistically expect anything else, I guess. It's good of you to still soldier through it, though.

I'm probably one of the most desensitised people to horror but even I have my rules. Like NO FREAKING SPIDERS. Also those Zombie things in Wind Waker still creep me the hell out. You can see one in the distance but there's nothing you can do, so you can either waste a light arrow or be brave, endure the glass shattering scream and then fight it. I choose the light arrow every time. Damn things.

Also the armoured serapedes in Gears of War 3 creep me out a tiny bit..

I sometimes wish that I could turn on my emotions. I keep wondering whether I'm a selfish or heartless person but then I find myself fighting to care. I also have a problem with conflict: I just can't do it. If I don't like what someone is saying to me, 99% of the time I won't say anything. I don't have trouble with sticking up for myself in sticky situations. I just can't be bothered to say anything almost every other time. It's like the second I get furious, it just disappears and I'm left thinking, "oh... nah."

Recently I've moved back to my mum's. I was initially only staying for a little while, which was my dad's choice; when he and my stepmum finally allowed me back home I had to tell them that I didn't want to come back. I'd expected them to be upset, but I hadn't thought they'd be angry on such a level. They dragged out a lot of crap that I guess I didn't deserve, but why bother to say that? What topped it off was the huge guilt trip they tried to pull on me because my twin sister also left them under similar circumstances a couple of years ago. I thought about it and tried to apologise, but didn't. I don't like to say "sorry" when I don't mean it, you know? It's a shitty thing to do.

The truth is that my reason for moving to my mum's is "it's just what I need right now." I know and my parents know that that's just a roundabout way of saying "because I want to." I guess in the end, that's how it is. I don't know anymore if it's a good or bad thing. I genuinely wish I could care. I'm not asking for anyone's pity or sympathy, I just want to get this out so maybe one day I can sort my thoughts out.

I know, I rant too much. My bad.

This might not seem like something that I should be ranting about, but for some reason it has really bothered me recently! I feel like a bit of an idiot because it’s not even that big of a deal. I don’t even know why I think it’s something worth mentioning actually, but I reaalllllyyy want to rant about it!

Reading a couple of issues of Neo magazine recently, I discovered that there was... there were... a lot of breasts in that magazine.

I know how ridiculous this sounds, but in my opinion I think that it is a little unnecessary! It almost seemed that most of the anime women and girls were wearing next to nothing or had really tight clothes on...

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t care about stuff like this usually, a boob doesn’t bother me, but for some reason it did this week. God knows why. I’m not prude!!!

Perhaps I’m reading into this too much.

TBH, it does get annoying for me how much fan service goes on... It's a bit ott. So I see what you mean when you get irritated by it. Everyone has a breaking point about it lol

Which is why I love animes/mangas like FMA (Brotherhood)! It only focuses on boobs twice I believe, which is for humour purposes. An excess of boob gets a bit annoying.

Not a prude either (well, as long as it doesn't involve my body but that's self confidence more than anything), but seriously, it makes it hard to cosplay girls when they have their boobs hanging out all the time.

Whilst I'm on this rant, I'm also gonna whine about how revealing all their clothes are concerning ladies. I feel I can only cosplay guys cause they actually wear something rather than paint/a metre of fabric *rant rant rant*


@abcity: TBH, from what you said it looks like your dad went and said "no we don't want you hear atm, go to your mums" then expected you to skip on back when he did want you back. So don't feel guilty.

As to not retaliating, it seems like you're taking the higher ground and seeing that they are not worth the issue, whoever they are.


And Han, those are ReDeads. I first encountered one as a child. Scarred for life lol.

Seriously though, using the guide for Twilight Princess, read that "in the next room there will be ReDead Knights".

... Guess how long it took me to work up the courage to enter that next room. I think I've developed a phobia of them...

I have to agree with this. While I certainly enjoyed the fanservice when I was younger, its lost most of its appeal now.

It seems like they are just putting it in these days for the sake of filling up time/pages. Almost like its becoming the new 'flashback' filler material.

And while im no pride either, im on the shy side. And there are so many costumes I can see myself not even being able to ask a photo for, because they can be so revealing. (And I have trouble enough sometimes if the cosplayer themselves is cute, this would just make it more arkward!)

I've noticed this too. I have nothing against a little fanservice, but it's getting to the stage where I don't have a lot of option when it comes to cosplaying girls - it's either wear the equivalent of a belt and a bootlace or grow boobs not dissimilar to two small children.

As a side note, I think Neo have really improved - I still have the second issue lying around somewhere. Despite the boobage, you gotta love 'em.

@Nixie; Thanks. (:

Yeah I flicked through your Neo and there's a set of boobs on nearly every page! A bit of fan-service never hurt anyone, but this weeks seems full of boobs O_O

I think perhaps they feel if they fill it with that kind of material it might sell more? -shrugs-


06 Oct 2011 - 09:5871687
Yeah. I wish they'd get rid of thnat Fanservice Hall of Shame section. It's just a waste of space. On the flip side alot of fanservicey series' have been comming out lately.

Gosh this one person is driving me nuts, really. We were once good friends, but that changed when she suddenly changed plans at a convention. (a rather long story, but the short version is this: she had problems at her job and thus wanted to stay at home. Fine with me, I do understand that. But what made me angry is the fact that she did not tell me - another friend had to 'force' her to tell me and in the end it was sunday afternoon and I stood there, trying to find out how to reach my friend's place all by myself. I confronted her later and three weeks later I finally heard her apologize. But after that our friendship hasn't been the same.)
Her actions now actually should not bother me, I guess. But they still drive me mad. My best friend's Dad died a few weeks ago and she knew that he was sick, she knew about his condition.
But all she did was talking about herself. Herself and her fandoms. Never did she write her to ask how her Dad is, how she feels.

And now she read about the funeral and she just talked about her flowers at home.

So happy I found this! I need a good vent!

So basically theres this guy at uni, and I lived with him in halls, and he's one of my best friends, and that was it! Then over the last christmas holidays I developed a crush on him and it was all very sweet, but then one day I told his housemate about it in cofidence whilst drunk and she went home and started teasing him about it.

Ever since I've been getting mixed signals from him, because he has a habit of fancying the pretty, tanned, skinny girls (you know the ones) that we're friends with, and me, being the nerdy, girl next door (as I would describe myself)girl, I don't seem to get a look in. I've been getting mixed signals off him for ages, we've had friends go 'hey you two should totally sleep together' and 'OMG just take the chance and kiss him' which I didn't want to do because like I said he's one of my best friends and lives in a house with a large quantity of the rest of my friends, I don't want to fuck anything up!

So last night we went out with a mutual friend and got just a bit drunk, and when the guy I like left me and mutual friend got to talking...

It turns out that guy I like 'is going through some stuff right now' and long story short, still fancys skinny girly girls but 'really wants to fancy me' because he has a chance with me.

So the reason I'm upset (and still in bed at 12.20, aside from my hangover) is the fact that I thought that if he liked me, it would be for me, nerdy, clumsy, me, and its not! The whole reason he 'wants to' like me is because with me he has a chance at getting in my pants.

The super annoying thing is that for most of my teenage and adult life I've had to compete with these glamourous, skinny girls, and I thought for once a guy I like might actually like me over them, and I was wrong, and I'm devastated!!

OK, and breath.... rant over! I needed that!!!!!

Fact: Most men get put off by the glamourous looking girls.

Did you know that one of the most popular running photo runs in NUTS magazine was of the "girls next door" shoots.

I for one would say you are an attractive girl. And the "shit he's going through" most likely some bollocks guys make up to obfuscate feelings and communications.

Why am I saying this? No, I'm not a feminist, I have a mutual feeling of contempt for humanity in general.

I'm saying this because I'm sick to the back teeth of guys who act like little boys. Using the push-pull attention seeking thing, mixed signals, confuse and go in for the kill kinda thing.

Where does it leave girls like our Ally? Confused and wary of guys in general, which fucks things up for nice guys like me. What. I'm actually quite pleasant. Don't look so shocked.

The one I was with before she left (I know, boohoo) wasn't glamorous, or tanned etc. But she is pretty, and cute, with very pale skin. I'm a fairly vain and self obsessed individual, I'm very much attracted to looks, but I could see myself asking you out without hesistation, Ally. Should circumstances come to it.


06 Oct 2011 - 14:3271701
@ClosetFanGirl

Judging from you're profile picture you seem like such a pretty girl and I find it kind of sad that any guy wouldn't appreciate that. We seem to live in a world where some men feel like they can't be honest about their feelings, so instead have to play silly games. I know what its like to be messed around by a man who's giving off mixed signals but there are, I promise you, plenty of men out there who do appreciate a girl who knows how to be herself.
