  • Heartless Bastard Mother Fucker

    Story Time!


    About 4 weeks ago as I was leaving class, a girl in my class approached me. Her pretense was about some presentation she had to do for our class. I had never spoken to this girl or noticed her before, but evidently she sits behind me. We talked for 40 minutes about ourselves in which I found out she doesn't like video games, anime, camping, hiking, or drinking, so... not much in common. She ended up getting around to saying that she thought I was cool, and she would like to hang out sometime over spring break. I said sure because I was flattered and didn't want to be rude to this girl who had the courage to approach me in the first place.


    As I was busy painting my room the very next day, she starts texting me a lot asking what I was doing. I responded by saying I was busy painting the trim in my room. She responded by saying she was lying in bed looking at memes and continuing to text me (this was at 2 in the afternoon). So she's lazy, and I keep myself busy. Again not much in common. She asked if I could hang out in an hour, so I said sure (putting my painting project on hold).


    We went to the park, and she bought a piece of pie, grabbed and extra fork (without asking me), and started to periodically offer me bites of pie. Not really in my comfort zone for a first date hang out. Then we walked and talked for about 3 hours, mostly about her, and any time I tried to relate something to myself she managed to put the focus back on her and her friends. After we had talked for a while she pulled out a book of "songs" she wrote in high school, and handed them to me. I read a couple which had to do with first hand experiences of bulimia, anorexia, and cutting. I asked her what kind of music she had in mind for them, and she said she didn't have anything planned for them, just lyrics. Every last word of every line rhymed with the last word of the line before, so not great, but I was being polite by changing the subject. She then proceeded to read every song in the book to me (about 9 total), all dealing with the same high school bull shit (she's 21). I showed her some of my music, and she seemed disinterested, again shifting the focus back to her music. The "hang out" kind of fizzled out from there.


    I determined from that, that we were not compatible, and decided I would not go on any future dates hang outs with her.


    One week later she asked me to hang out again. I was completely disinterested, but I didn't want to have to keep making up excuses not to hang out with her, and I wanted a clean break. I didn't want to hurt her by ghosting, so I decided to hurt her with honesty. I told her I was not interested in anything further. I knew full well that "hanging out" is a cop-out way of asking someone on a date without it being considered a date. It makes someone seem like a real big jerk if they refuse to hang out with you as opposed to refusing to date you.


    I left the conversation there, not wanting to have anything to do with her anymore.


    Today she approached me thinking that I didn't get her last message about me misreading things. I told her I didn't misread anything, I just didn't think we were compatible. We don't share any common interests, and we're in different phases of life. I have limited time, taking 6 hours of classes and working 36 hours, so I have to be careful with how I spend it, and who I spend it with. She asked if it mattered that we don't have common interests. Umm... yes. It matters. Then she asked if we were just not going to talk or hang out anymore. I said I guess.


    So now, hopefully, that is done.


    I just don't understand how you would want to be friends with someone with no previous history of communication or anything. She just thought I "looked cool" which again, is flattering, but that is not what friendships are based on.


    I learned at 17 what a lot of people seem to still not understand: Not everyone is going to like you, and that's OK. They don't have to, and that is not your problem, it's theirs.


    Sorry for the long post, but this has been on my mind for a little while, and I feel like today it was finally concluded.

    Kerrin_K

    Hello! My name's Kerrin, I'm a 3D animation student currently studying at SCAD, and graduating this spring. I've been a long-time fan of Rooster Teeth, since I first saw Red Vs. Blue when I was 13. Ever since I've pretty much been a lurker, checking out new episodes of RvB, reading comics, watching Achievement Hunter, and podcasts, and basically everything thing that's been done over the last 9 years. I've especially loved all of the new animation that's been coming out recently too, so I figured it's time for me to actually become a member and create an account.

  • #Fit4RTX 2017 Week 12 - Now for the Baby Bulk

    1 day ago

    Tropes Displaced

    All right! So I finished phase one of #fit4RTX 2017! I managed to go from 183 to 160 in terms of weight, but I've also got myself down to about 10% bodyfat. So I'm not at exactly where I wanted to be but I am also not quite done yet!


    So here's the plan for the next four to six weeks: Get big. Only do it healthy, though. Still tracking calories, still giving myself a max cap, and still eating healthy food (clean carbs, healthy fats and lean proteins). On MyFitnessPal I've basically set it to the slowest possible size gaining option and am going to reorganize my workouts around hypertrophy. Then, in mid-May, I'm going to shred down again. Ideally, I'll have gained so little fat when doing my muscle that I'll be able to get down to my original goal of 9% bodyfat or lower.


    Kinda makes me wish I had the time and ability to cosplay - I feel like I would be great as a "Savage" variant of Mogar or Broly if everything goes according to plan.

  • New Show Idea

    10 hours ago

    matteflowers FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold Cappy

    Hey y'all, so I've been working on this new idea for a youtube series on my channel. It wouldn't be about gaming really. More of a pseudo-educational series about business, accounting, corporate and personal finance. At least that's the starting idea, I'd love to expand it into more topics, but I'm starting with a passion of mine and something I know decently.


    The working name for it is "the Growth Show" (vague plant/flowers pun intended), but if you have other thoughts on that let me know. Other than that, I wanted to know what questions or topics you would be interested in? Currently I'm planning on high-level chats about things like: business health metrics, taxes, basics of retirement accounts (like 401ks and IRAs), credit cards, loans, interest, as well as how to make basic financial statements and the differences between traditional business (accrual) accounting and the usual cash-basis most people use, as well as interesting business models (I personally love to look at how different companies and individuals make money in different ways).


    Those are just some ideas, but I would love to hear what's on your minds. And even if it isn't businessy finance sort of stuff, maybe there's a place in the show for episodes around those things as well.
