Holy shit, tonight was so very needed. Getting out and hanging out with a real friend has been something I've been needing. I didn't realize how starved I was for conversation and quality time with someone who isn't in my family. We just watched movies, they fiddled around with their instruments for a little bit, and I got to see all the stuff they've been working on in the last year regarding thier video game. I had such a great time, and now that I'm fully vaccinated, this needs to become a regular thing. There are plenty of people I haven't seen for over a year now that I would love to catch up with in person.
Took care of some bills, washed my car, paid too much for gas (but I think that has less to do with the pipeline thing and more to do with the fact that this is Southern California and nothing is cheap)... I hate being an adult sometimes. But, tonight is something to look forward to. Movies with a friend for the first time in months and months. I need this.
This is why I don't tend to do nice things for people. It always gets thrown in my face.
Do you guys actually read the bullshit you write for your Coven pages? Because it doesn't feel like you do. Or you're all just idiots who don't know the most basic rules when it comes to grammar. I swear, I should just start offering my services to fix the shit writing on your pages. I'll make things sound like they weren't just copied/pasted from every other Coven, while also ensuring that you don't look like an absolute idiot by putting apostrophes where they don't belong or spelling even the simplest words wrong.
I don't know what all that was really about, but if you're trying to bait me into something, it's not going to work.
I'm going to leave this here for the kids who think I'm "attacking" them because I rate them low. No one is going to get an automatic ten from me. Ask friends, ask well established members. I am a harsh judge, deal with it. Put some effort into your profiles, don't just copy and paste the same shit over and over again.
I can't be bothered to keep up with all the profiles some members own either... not the hundreds of name changes made. I rarely rate a profile at this point. Just too much hassle to deal with the drama that comes from a rating, especially if you are a person who rates honestly and not just a 10 giver.
I don't often take pictures of myself that I like, but I like this one. Probably because I'm in the dark.
I'm not quite sure why, but it really annoys me to see that the school system has failed so many. People don't know basic grammar, basic spelling, basic math and science. I'm not college educated, I tried, but I don't do well with forced education. I like to learn what interests me and I like to do it in my own time. But even so, I payed attention and learned something in the 12 years I was required to go to school. Why haven't so many others? Why are the most basic of things beyond their comprehension? You can't be that fucking stupid, can you?
It's not just here, though the amount of people who don't know the difference between "a lot" and "allot" makes me want to cry. I see it on Facebook, I deal with it in my real life. It gets to me. I don't know why, it's not like it really has any effect on my life, but it bothers me. Is it laziness? Stupidity? Disability? Any combination of the three? I don't know, but I don't like it. When someone talks to me online, using text speech or misspelling basic words more than what I deem acceptable, I immediately stop talking to that person. If you don't have the ability to talk to me like an adult, I want nothing to do with you. You don't need to be professional, you just need to not look like a fucking moron. And when you're too lazy to see how a word is spelled, you fall into that fucking moron catagory.
And, this isn't me saying I'm perfect all the time. I'm not. Not by any streach of the imagination. But, the difference is that I will look something up if I'm not sure of it. I will read and reread things and try to sort out typos and misuse of words before I send them. There will always be mistakes, again, I'm not perfect, but I do my best to limit them as much as possible.
It makes me mental as well! I am by no means perfect. I too make grammar and spelling errors from time to time, especially when in a hurry, however I know the difference between WANT and WON'T! There are times that I will make a post or send a message from my phone and in my rush fail to read it over before submitting it only to find that my smart phone is stupid and has "corrected" something that was already correct. THAT irritates me to no end as well. I home school my son due to not being happy with the public education system.
I just bought the cutest pair of Minnie ears from a little Etsy shop. They're Kylo Ren themed, because of course they are. I was looking at what was available for May the 4th via the Disney Store, they have Darth Vader themed Minnie ears for pre-order, but honestly, they aren't that nice. So, instead, I got the ones from Etsy that I've had my eyes on for a few months. So now, when I can finally go back to the parks, I'll have my Kylo Ren mini backpack and wallet set from Loungefly, my Vader Adidas, my Kylo lightsaber necklace, one of my many Star Wars shirts, and a nice set of Kylo themed Minnie ears ready to go. Bit much? Probably. But, what can I say? I'm a Star Wars nerd, have been since I was a kid.
