  • Mood: Rant

Now normally, most normally, I'm a pleasant, happy-go-lucky sorta person! I'm agreeable, tolerant, patient. But we all have our days, and I think I'm having one of those days *evil glare*.

That said, I'm feeling in a ranty mood. I'm going to list some things that are irking me to heck in the last few days. I don't expect responses or happyness in return, but it sure beats putting it all down in a Word document. Without further ado, Gen presents: An emo, socially challenged rant of epic proportions!

#1. Lets start with smokers. Nothing (much) personal, but please, if you're going to give yourself cancer, stand away from other people who do not want it. I was sitting at Nando's with Kritter5x, on a nice sunny afternoon. What the heck, I thought, lets sit out the front where there are some tables and get some air for once. Lining the windows were signs saying "Do not smoke within 4 meters" Yay! That means no one will smoke near us! Wrongo, stupid 16-yr-old whatever sits down next to us and lights up smoke after smoke. Ash at this point is blowing INTO my mild peri-peri chicken pita, and I am about ready to make a snide remark...
Unfortunately I don't like comfrontation and I never make a habit of telling smokers to please move away. I wish I did. Why should I sit there choking on smoke that is burning my eyes and lungs. Maybe next time I'll make a stand and take a chance.

#2. DA. Sort of in general, sort of not. I've said this MANY times before, but I really don't like the community aspect of DA. I'm not social, and I'm a busy person. Ok so there are a ton of people on here whom I really like and think they're wonderful, but they're heavily outweighed with annoying people. People who don't READ, then note, email or main-page me to bug me about it. "HEI PLZ DRAW MY FOX FOR ME???" No, I'm sorry, but I don't do requests. Never have never will, and this is ALWAYS written in my journal. I know that's a stupid place to look for it, but everyone puts it there.
Also people who say "Be my friend!" and "Add more stuff to your dollmakers, unreasonable things!!!" I understand some people don't know how Flash works, but for goodness sake, STOP asking for me to move heaven and earth. I encourage critisism, suggestions, items, design, but do NOT ask me to do 10-million poses and add 400 more clothes because "there's not enough!" That is at my discretion ><

#3. That new song by Alicia Keys. I use to love her, and I don't think I've ever switched the radio over for a bad song before this one. But I HATE that song.

#4. Rants. Oops ={

#5. My computer freezing and resetting... it's enough when it does it in the middle of me playing a game, but now it's doing it while I'm working!!! Aiee I've learned the hard way to save every few minutes.


Actually I thought I had a lot more to complain about than that! Maybe I compiled way too many things into #2 ?
Or maybe I just feel better already? Anyway apologies for this, because I don't mean to upset anyone, I just want how I feel to be known. I'd better get back to work, I took a good long break just to vent all this ^^; I need coffee and a finger bun now ;_;

Back next time with something slightly more upbeat!

PLEASE READ THIS: I do NOT do trades or requests. Do not email or note me asking me to draw stuff, it will be ignored. Yeah.

Wow, you've had a rough day? I agree with you completely. I hate smokers... Especially when they act like they can do whatever they want.
About your computer... I've had that problem before... My dad runs Symantec Anti-Virus software on his server and it works quite well actually. It could be a trojan virus like everyone else above me has been saying.

I've had a pretty rough week myself. I've been trying out for track and I did horribly for the first day. I could'nt even throw the shotput or discus even a thrid of the requirement. To make matters worse, I got a 16:72 seconds for the 100 m dash, which is slow by the standard. Half the girls that tried out did way better than me and they don't exercise, yet I did Cross Country just this past season and I should've done better. And on top of that, today I could've gone to practice but because of communication problems, my dad rescheduled my orthodontist appointment w/o calling me at lunch. So I walked home and now I'm stuck doing nothing because I screwed up.

Hope everything works out for you. Sorry about the long comment, I have a habit of doing that sometimes...

My dad's a smoker, already had a heart attack :[
But yet he doesn't give up. >.<

I love that Alicia Keys song. It fills me with happiness and joy! :D

And also, people on dA don't read, just stare at the preety pictures, but I hope it doesn't deter you from your artistic postings!

Later! [^^]

Well for the computer, I'm a computer technician for acer and you could try defragging your computer and before that a disk cleanup and how much RAM do you have in the computer?

Ranting is a good thing really, cause if you keep all that stuff to yourself, it will eventually manifest itself physically.

As for the smoker problem, coming from someone who used to smoke for about 13 years, some people are inconsiderate morons. I used to smoke and I respected the people that didn't smoke. Hell, I quite because my husband dosen't smoke.

Anyway, before I start ranting myself, I hope you feel better now, cause that is the important thing!

Totally agree with you on #1. I hate smokers!
As for the "so there are a ton of people on here whom I really like and think they're wonderful, but they're heavily outweighed with annoying people.", now you got me curious, am I one of the people you like or am I one of the annoying people?

Venting can be good at the correct timing, at least in my opinion.
Too bad I never had the courage to vent anything...

Ha...ha...^^; At least your rant didn't include lotsa cursing, like mine did. Hmm.....I don't think I ever said to add anything to the FDM's. Except more color choices....<< Ignore that. ^w^ Take care!!!!
