Um, thanks to a friend, this is also going to have an advice section, lol. So if you have questions, comments, or concerns, e-mail me at email@example.com If it's a question you'd like for me to answer in the advice column, please put @ADVICE in the subject. If you want advice, but don't want the question to be featured, tell me.
I'm not always right, and my opinion isn't the only opinion. It's just how I think, alright?
following brain itches Theme by Adam Holwerda.
so, i know i just updated, but whatever. i just had to say that ever since i haven’t had much time on the computer, i feel like i’m left out of a lot of things. chats mostly. well, not only that, but i feel like i’m not as close to the people i was extremely close to anymore. it’s kind of frustrating because i really want to be a part of the group again, you know? i don’t know. it’s just really upsetting. i miss you guys. especially jess, erin, cam, india, brie, brie2, and SO many more. =/
WE WILL GET YOUR BUTT INVOLVED. <3
okay, this is not a mean or anything. but guys. srsly. because you’re on caution staff doesn’t mean anything. it just means you’re working on caution. it annoys me about how people think we’re all high and mighty and we think we’re all cool because we work on it. we’re not. i just had to get that out. because honestly. i don’t think being on the staff is cool. i think it’s fun. as in, having friends, working with people and making people realize things they did wrong. for instance - stealing. it isn’t just fun and games guys. so stop making it seem like we’re the bad guys if we’re on the staff. because we’re not. i’m sorry if this offends you or anything. but i’m being honest. we are not mighty or conceited or anything. maybe you think we are, but honestly. that’s just how you think it is.
jsyk, i kinda love you. <3
jsyk, i ditto the above.
i’ve never been good at blogging or keeping them updated but let’s keep this going. even if no one reads this, at least it’s out on the table. we need that right now. i think that the fact everyone is resorting to anonymous blogs is really sad. every day a new one pops up because no one will put themselves out there to say what’s on their mind. does that sound wrong to anyone else? these are people we love and talk to daily who don’t feel comfortable enough to be honest with us because they’ll be attacked for their opinions. that’s all they are, opinions. everyone has one. everyone’s is different. why is it such a big deal? no one should feel like they have to keep quiet and hide who they are, ever.
Skylar is completely and totally right on this. No further comment.
There’s this feeling you get when you’re out of line, and you know it, but you can’t stop. You try to hold the words back, but they start to gather behind your lower lip, building up until your chest feels cold and you need to let it out so you can breathe. When you start to spill, the words come out like crushed ice in one of those stupid dispensers all the “expensive” refridgerators come with now. Nothing sounds right, no matter how hard you try to make it, and finally, you get so frustrated that you can’t explain yourself without being awful, without throwing obscenities around, and without hurting the person you’re talking to, whether you want to or not.
Last night, I experienced that hardcore for the first time in a long time. I try not to blow up at people, but I let my own biases get in the way. I forgot to remember that the person I was talking to was my friend. It was someone I cared about, and someone who had shown nothing but support for me. I learned how stupid I could be, going off at her for doing the same thing I promote constantly. She cared about her friend. Me? I was offended by something stupid. I crossed the border between rightfully upset and plain out ridiculous. I hit that point where sorry just wasn’t what the friend wanted to hear, and where I wasn’t sure if I was sorry for what I said or if I was sorry that it hurt her.
We’re not always going to agree with our friends on everything. We’re not always going to believe the same things, or find the same things morally reprehensible or absolutely hilarious. We’re not always going to see eye-to-eye. A good friend knows when to stop and accept that their opinion isn’t necessarily right, and that whether they believe it or not, they should back off of the person they disagree with. Last night, I did not act like a good friend.
The moral of the story is that you can’t force your opinion on someone else. You can’t say, Look, I’m right. You’re wrong. Believe me, or go screw yourself. That sort of attitude is way out of line and way stupid. At the same time, you can’t change your opinion constantly because someone feels differently than you do about a situation. Be an advocate for what you feel is right, but don’t be a jerk about it, you know?
I hope anybody who reads this will think about it the next time they’ve got… creative differences or whatever with somebody.
… haha, i managed to sound so cliche there, but yeah. i love you guys.
Hey there! My name is Nora, and most of you probably know me or you wouldn’t have followed, lol. I’m sixteen, I’m from Eastern Kentucky, and I staff on Caution, Burning Down Neverland, and Crime Clash. My username on Caution is NORA CONVERSE, and hmm. I’m a big sister. I’ve got two little brats running around the house (God, I love them). I have a cat and three dogs? And my parents are still together after seventeen years. Things get rocky in my family, but we pull through, and we have God and our friends to thank for it. I cuss too much for my own good, I freak out and worry easily. Dad has heart disease, and he’s in and out of the hospital all the time. Mom and I can argue a lot, but that’s because she’s my mom.
You guys aren’t here to see that stuff, though.
This isn’t my personal tumblr. That can be found at noraconverse.tumblr.com. This is where I’m just going to be honest and tell you what I think about events in the RPing world, about international and local news, and about random issues that don’t make a lot of sense. This is where I’m going to offer to give advice, although it’s up to you to decide whether or not it’s good advice. Honestly, I don’t know best. I know what works for me, and I know what I’d tell my friends in these situations. At the end of the day, I just want to be able to be there for people I don’t talk to as often as I should.
If I ever offend you with something I post, tell me. That’s not the point of this.
Once again, my personal twitter and tumblr are both noraconverse. My NORA KNOWS twitter is http://twitter.com/noraknows and just holler for contact details outside of twitter and tumblr.
