Next rant - If people sign up for tutoring, I wish they would actually show up.  Yesterday (and today, actually) none of my appointments chose to show up.  So, I lose money, they lose education, and I waste my time coming over here when I could be doing other things like prepping figures.  Bah.

Rant #2 - Weather in CA is quite stormy right now.  There was a large power outage and my CPU apparently doesn't last long on battery backup, so I was in the middle of closing things and telling people the power went out and it shut off.  Consequently, for some strange reason I lost all of my firefox bookmarks and firefox reset to default settings.  So, now I'm missing loads of bookmarks and I don't even know where to start.

Well yes.  I remembered firefox automatically makes a backup of your bookmarks every time something in them changes, so I scoured for the folder and found a backup that was dated june 1st, so all is well except for whatever I changed from then to the present.

Well, it's less of a rant because I don't like to air out my dirty laundry to other people very much. I said something that I shouldn't have to my girlfriends mom, I wasn't rude or anything but she took major offense and was already nagging my girlfriend so apparently after I left she got major grief for it and I feel like A) a jerk and B)an idiot.

I've been that way in the past as well, where I don't have a problem with saying something, and it grosses someone out or whatever, and they're like "argh, never say that again."  I'm not vulgar, I just sometimes am a bit too frank about certain things which might make others squeamish.  Maybe something I need to work on as well.

It was sort of that she got really really offended that I dared have an opinion that differed from hers, clearly marking me as an idiot. She was not nicely nagging she was attacking and making my girlfriend feel small and useless. She was saying stuff like "you can't handle yourself  in public enviroments; you're gonna get fired" etc etc despite the fact that my girlfriend has held a steady job for 2 years. It just really bothers me that she attacks like that and my girlfriend can't even say anything cause it just makes it worse and worse for her.

Prescribe her Season 1 of House?

Seriously, though, I have a friend who's in a situation like that, and eventually, he got out of the house and is living with his brother.  What does she need to do, though, to prove to her mom that she's responsible (other than the 2 years at the job) enough to not need :V's?

I think it's more of a control issue, her mother constantly tries to control every little thing that she does. It's kinda unfortunate but as soon as my girlfriend is capable of leaving she's gone; won't visit, probably won't call. She doesn't have anywhere else to go or she would be long gone. Thanks for the support but I don't really wanna talk to much about it as it's not my family, I just needed to vent a little.

Thank you, there's not many people I can really "chat" with; I make friends or I don't. This was really the only place where I feel like I can talk I guess.

That's kind of like my house but not as bad.  Once I get a good job, pay off my student loans, and put a down payment on a house, I'm out of my place.  It's sad, but I really do need to get out.

Which one's not as bad? That's really unfortunate either way, best of luck to all.

I'd stay home forever if I could, but that's kind of unprofessional and awkward.

Same here, my home life is pretty good and I like being here. But as life goes on we must go with it.

Yeah well my mom doesn't trust me, and that's my problem.  If I get anything in the mail, she has to be right there to find out what it is so she can blow up at me if it's something she might find remotely " :no: able" in her opinion (aka anything anime).

Case in point:  last week I got the remainder of my supplies for my PVC figure painting.  Since it's an imported package she had to sign for it.  I heard her answer the door and she was like "OH LOOK A PACKAGE... IT'S NOT FOR ME?  THEN I DON'T WANT IT."  So, she signs for it and takes off with it.  I knew what it was so I just waited patiently to see how long it was before it got to me (If it got to me).

So, she brings it in to me about 5 minutes later and is like "So what is it?"  I told her it was the other supplies I ordered.  Obviously not satisfied with that answer, she says
"That's not what it says on the box.  The box says 'resin figure'." 
Me - "Well, yeah mom, I ordered this stuff from a resin figure kit store, naturally it says that on the box"
"Well then open it."
Me - "Why, do you think it's something you won't like or something?"
"Just open it."
Me - "Why?  Apparently you think it's a resin figure, that's what it says on the box.  Or do you think it's something I shouldn't have or something?"
No response.

So, I opened it, pulled everything out and set it all out nicely and then asked her if that was good enough for her random interest.  She didn't say anything, so I packed it up and handed the box to her and told her to bring it back when she was satisfied.

Next time I'm going to leave the freaking box unopened in plain sight and see how long it takes before she opens it.  Unfortunately for me, Nendoroid Nagi is going to be very hard to keep in the box o_o;;

Stuff like that is why I need to move out.  It's not that I receive/purchase anything she wouldn't like, it's that she thinks I do when I don't.  I figured she should know she raised me better but apparently she doesn't think the way I do.  There are other reasons behind my motivation to move out, but crap like this is one of the main ones.

Just be glad she didn't go a step further and open it without you even knowing that it came. Then a few hours later before bed you get told that a package was sent to you but she took it for her own.

Which is why I organic don't like foods.

oops I messed up. It'd be weird if I was organic food. Then I'd hate myself and be all emo.

Hey that'd save the customers some time! :D

This is what I expect as it is, actually.

I kind of wish that there wasn't a stigma attached to staying at home, because I do rather like it as well.  My parents probably wouldn't care, though.

@sock - a lot of the time, they do that stuff for reaction, so if you act like you're cool with it, they won't bother you.  At least, that's my experience.  Or you can start ordering things that will make them be like ??? like a monkey wrench. leather gloves, a 24 pack of sudafed, and a lot of 3954 pieces of hotel soap.

@8C (look at it sideways) - :asd: I like having a place where I can spout off too.  Every so often I need it, perhaps more than I think I do. XD  We're happy to listen any time :D

If I had money to purchase random crap like that, I would, but at this point I don't really have a budget for that lol.

I need to rant too... My parents don't know I'm into anime. But I love it. Azumanga + Lucky Star = <3
Every time they pass by me watching Azu, I have to quickly open another tab. I can't keep hiding this forever, but they'll think I'm weird and my sister (who has a boyfriend in 5th grade!!) will start calling me a nerd. What should I do?!  8|

I don't know what to tell you, depending on how old you are there are different ways to handle the situation. But it's not a big deal, after all I'm into comics and video games; I'm the first to call myself a "nerd" it's not an insult to me it merely indicates one enjoys more academic/intellectual pursuits. I didn't have a girlfriend until I was nearly 19 and out of high school, I don't like casual dating it was either a commitment or nothing. Who you are is who you are, be that person and as long as it isn't illegal or really really out there they should be ok with it.


@Imasock my gf and I went to gamestop and got the same clerk that sold us the game, I just explained what happened and he apologized and replaced the game no problem. This made me  :)

I remember when my own parents found out about my anime interests.  My two friends who were at my house at that moment in time will never forget either.  Now I make them tolerate it.  I'll post pictures of my room sometime (which is still very tame as far as I'm concerned).  In my case, when they don't like it, I'll just move out (as mentioned earlier).  Just be you, don't worry what people think, because everyone is going to think of you in some way or another.  I hope people laugh when they think of me because I try to do what I can to be unique.  If nobody thinks diffrrently of you, then you'll just be the same as everyone else (at least, that's the way I see it).

Ah, good, good.  You didn't have to get anyone fired, cool.  (I did that once, boy was that fun, too).
