What is it with people asking for permission to write?
I'm sure we've all seen threads that start with something like "I've thought of this idea for a story/novel...", I don't dislike threads like this, I've asked for help myself, what gets on my nerves is when people write stuff like "so, it's this okay?" "is it interesting?"
It gets on my nerves because it's like they're asking permission to write the story, just write it dammit!! You can find by yourself whether it's interesting or not! Instead of asking something to make the story better, an opinion about the characters, the theme, the grammar, the tone, they ask whether it's original....come on!! Nothing is really original if you think about it!!
Widely speaking, there is only a handful of stories, whether it's 3 or 7 or whatever, deep down whatever you write is not original. Deal with it.
That's something else that gets on my nerves, at the minimum imply that a story may be plagiarized or even inspired by someone else's work, the original poster who asked for help goes on a rage on how his/her story is completely original. You asked for help, you got it, so it's not the praise you expected, deal with it too.
Everyone's view is biased. That's what I think. It does matter if you're thirteen or thirty or if you're Irish or Mexican, your view of the world is different, even if just by the thought that coffee sucks. That gives in-sight on why you write your stories the way you do, age does matter also in the sense of maturity, especially because I don't by that **** of fourteen year olds being as mature as adults, but that's just me.
I'll stop ranting here because my copy of "The Last Unicorn" just arrived, feels good to let out some steam and poison. Remember that this rant is not directed to you you. Don't bother responding if all you want to argue is how wrong I am.
Tomorrow is my last day of school...
I kinda dragged a few of my assignments (meaning I got low grades), but I'm happy it's finally done. I few weeks ago, when the teachers started giving us more homework, illustrations, essays...for a while I felt very discouraged and even thought about failing on purpose and start at another career or something, but I'm glad I stayed, it's like a big weight was finally let off.
I can't say I learned a lot this semester, but the few things I learned were good.
I hate my classmates. I guess 'hate' is too strong a word, but they don't like me very much either so...
Three months of vacations, woo! I definitely need those, and there's a lot I want to do, for instance ComicCon is on July, and I want to cosplay so it gives me plenty of time to work on my costumes.
There was going to be another convention nearby, but my parents decided to go on vacation that same day, I'm kinda angry about that 'cause I planned to cosplay there and now it's ruined...
On a happy note, now I have more time to write and stuff, so I'll probably post and review a lot more now.
I want to be as happy as I can during these vacations, because next semester I don't know how much time I'll have to even take a breath.
Junior High School and the majority of High School were a sort of torture for me, so when I got accepted into the college I wanted I made a promise to myself to be more assertive.
Compared to how I was before, I think I accomplished it rather well, I'm still a bit shy around new people, but I guess that has to do with the rotten humor I carry sometimes.
Things don't always go they way one wants (it's some kind of Murphy's law), but sometimes they come out so out of they way from what I wanted or expected that, I dunno, it's kinda discouraging.
Sometimes I wish I could be extremely violent and break things and smash thing and kill something, just to let out some steam....
I shouldn't be complaining about myself, dammit! It's pathetic!
~Please pay no attention, it's just me ranting.~
I hate people. Most people anyway. If it's not the US racists who want to abolish migration laws thinking there won't be any after effects on the country, then it's that idiot teacher who only answers in shrugs and can't think of anything else but partying and who's face I have to see every morning.
But most of all, I hate teenagers. I see now why fifteen year old girls want to date way older guys, boys their own age are just too stupid! And older guys only date them because they're stupid too!
What is it with teens thinking they're so great and special? They thinking themselves almost adult, and therefore they think they should be treated as adults, but guess what? You're still a kid!!
Teens want adult privileges, but they don't want the responsibilities.
I've noticed in other internet forums that teens have a very high ego level, that doesn't even qualify as self-esteem anymore. Just because they have a 'hobby' such as mechanics, psychology or computers, they think they're experts, I'll accept that some do have a very vast knowledge, but even so, their judgment is impaired by their immaturity. ("I know about this more than you, therefore, I am NOT wrong!")
Not even I like guys my age. The guy I 'kinda' like is 23, but occasionally I really dislike him, mainly because of his tendency to put up excuses or delays (I can see right through his lies).
About two or three months ago I had a minor car accident, the other victim and I called our respective insurance companies and I hit on both the guys they sent, even convinced the one from my insurance to take me eat tacos right then and there (and pay for me), and he was a bit less than 30.
Now I kinda understand why underage girls would want to date and older guy (even if they're stupid enough to get pregnant), so I'll say this a final time.
(Most [myself included])Teens Are Idiots.
(Ahh~ It felt amazing to vent just a little~)
