Re: Free Rants

thank you! it means a lot to hear. 

I've calmed down a little bit and I'm about to grab a tub of ice cream for The Imitation Game being on the telly in a minute... and tomorrow I'll spend some of the cash I got at the hair salon... I always love coming there... one of the hair dressers always desperately try to get to be the one 'doing' my hair. She always raves about how long and thick and pretty it is. lol. I think I need that 

(And I really do... my roots need covering, and have done for a month now!)

Re: Free Rants

Well, the hair salon was a bit of a bust... the girl I like was busy and I got an older lady to do it... who kept telling me how stupid it was to dye my hair black while she did it. She was actually pretty rude about the whole thing. It wasn't just advice, it was just rude, really. So yeah, it didn't really help my mood and I'm still pretty down. 

But at least my hair looks okay now.

That does sound like an uncomfortable experience.  Hopefully next time your regular person will be available.

Re: Free Rants

I hope so! On balance, my hair is so long that the rude lady had to ask someone to help with blow drying it, and the girl I prefer came running! That helped a bit

Re: Free Rants

Okay. I officially hate today. 

My boyfriend promised he'd be back after 2 weeks absence today (I even marked my calendar!) I'm so worried, hurt and angry... He could at least have sent a message somehow. He could have borrowed a laptop, tablet or phone from someone... it's really not that hard. I told him many times before how worried I get when I don't hear from him!
(I guess I 'know' it's not something serious at least... his friend has my email in case something bad happens). 

So, there was me... sitting with my laptop and phone waiting, and waiting... looking like an idiot. And my brain does this stupid thing where it right away starts to tell me that it's because I don't matter. 

Mum called me, with a date of that funeral... Saturday. I really wish I didn't have to go... I hate funerals. And add to that, having to worry and try to dodge a family member trying to make passes at you (I sort of hope he'll show some respect this time though... it's his dad!) 

And mum ended the conversation telling me someone else is sick with cancer now. 

I give up.

He came back Tuesday... thank goodness. I've been extremely worried!

It's times like these that long distance really sucks. I'm glad he's back though!

Re: Free Rants

This isn't really a rant, more like a predicament that I haven't had the chance to talk to anyone about.  Today we are going to be choosing next year's club president for one of the clubs I'm a member of at my university.  There are two people running for president I consider both of them friends.
One of them is in her first year but she has experience from being president of a club in high school and I think she's responsible and pretty level-headed.
The other will be in her third year next year and has experience from things she has helped organize since coming to unversity, and I think high school, too.  She's not as level-headed and I'm a little concerned about the fact that she can be quick to be excited or angered by things, even though I know she loves the club and I know she'd be committed.  Both of them are committed, though.  This girl also has been getting anxious about the vote and has had nightmares about nobody voting for her because they secretly don't like her - which I know isn't true.
I don't want her to be hurt, and I'm sure she could be good, but I think the other girl could be good, too.  I've changed my mind about who I'm going to vote for a few times already.

Re: Free Rants

that sounds like a bit of a tough one! I hope you figure out what's best. 
Though, if it's a closed vote, will either of them know who you voted for?

Re: Free Rants

No, I think our current president will be counting the votes.  It's anonymous.

so, they will never know who you vote for... right? I hope you figure out what's best!

I have a rant too... low blood pressure sucks. I spent the last few mornings with my legs up, drinking coffee and almost fainting... all because my dosage of anti anxiety meds were changed... grr

Re: Free Rants

That's not fun. I hope things get back closer to normal soon.

Well, the voting happened. I ended up voting for the girl in first year and she won the election, going with my gut as they say. I think my other friend was a little sad, even though she seemed excited for the girl who got picked.  I kind of felt bad for picking someone with less experience of the club over someone I've known for two years, even though I think she will do just fine. But I think I would have felt badly for whoever I didn't vote for and/or who didn't win anyway.
It's funny, though, pretty much everyone said they would have voted for me if I had run for president of the club! But I already have other commitments for next year, and I think I enjoy being in a club more if I don't have to think about as many responsibilities and just help out when I'm needed.  I need to manage my commitments for my mental health's sake. It was just funny how a couple people said I would be a good president and then a bunch of the others agreed. It was nice of them to say.

Re: Free Rants

I've read thru the recent posts and see that my mini-rant is really not much of an emotional issue in comparison :o But here goes.

I translate Harry Potter fanfiction as a hobby. I tend to go for long adventure stories the same way I prefer long case fics in BBC Sherlock fandom. So I'm two-thirds thru a 130'000 words story now and my beta reader suddenly complains that the story is boring because it's got too many details in it.

I mean, seriously? The Golden Trio solves a mystery to save the world and goes to all the cool places like  the Esfahan library in Iran (where the have a brush with the Rokh! gotta love Persian mythology), Toledo cathedral in Spain, the Oracle of Delphi in Greece and Terra del Fuego in Argentina, with the main narrative still happening in the UK. Such well-researched details make the story interesting since magic and wizards can't realistically be limited to Hogwarts in the adult world of HP.

That girl is a friend and one of two betas I often work with, so it's not our first adventure fic translation together, but I somehow think it may be our last.

Re: Free Rants

That's too bad that someone who has volunteer to help you is saying that.  Hopefully that won't be detrimental to the rest of the translation. It sounds pretty cool if you ask me.

Re: Free Rants

Yeah, too bad. I'm a great believer in doing only such things that are worth our precious time. It pains me to hear if somebody isn't having fun anymore. I offered her to "resign" mid-story but she's determined to see it thru.
