No worries. I'm not usually on except the weekends on here anyhow. I've University lectures and assignments to do. Actually I should be doing that now, but felt like I dropped to many new comments on people's walls this weekend and felt like I'd leave them hanging if I didn't say something sooner. So I thought I'd just do a quick wall response now. Dang I'm surprised you had such a fun event this past weekend. I suppose that's where you met some cool peeps. I think moments and meetings like that are important and cool to experience. Hmm... ... ... I don't know if I've had such an experience before. If I have, it's probably been so long ago that I don't even remember it. I feel like first time meetings w/ someone, even over a weekend is not enough time to get along w/ with others unless you have that "connection", whether it's friendship or love. At this point in my life, if I did discover such a person with which I could relate so well so early, I'd probably question myself a lot and be in denial.
Also, in reference to my bad experiences on here, I think it's mainly because I'm a dude and that there are people on this site who are trolls in general or have some kind of mental issues. Not like super mental, more like they're maybe bipolar or depressed or socially awkward. Perhaps they're generally a good person, but I was just at the wrong place at the wrong time and suffered at their hands. I wouldn't really put much thought into it, but hearing about other people's experiences and comparing it w/ my own as I've been a member of the site, it can get downright oppressive. So, that's probably why I changed from a happy-go-lucky person to such a downer since my first day on this site. I think the community changed me. Sadly I couldn't maintain my happiness. I'm kind of glad there are "some" happy people around still (usually they tend to be the newcomers).
Oh... that's sad... I'm glad you've grown stronger through your hardships and haven't let it twist you. I think most of MO's users may be like that, a bit shy when you first meet, until you get to know them. I guess being online though, it's easier to shed that shyness quicker than in real life.
Hmm, now that I think about it, I was reflecting earlier how I was a happier person on here when I first started visiting MO, but then I met some of the more "active" users of the site and didn't have any good experiences, thus I think that's why I'm kind of a downer on this site now. I can still remember a person asking me why I was so friendly before. Lol, nowadays I'm attracting the admins of the site to berate me and what not. Not in an overly bad way.... just something I never thought would happen to me lol.
Wonder if I should not just pull up a persona and pretend to be all happy go-lucky again? Whoops, not sure why I'm telling you this stuff... maybe b/c I'm listening to some sad korean osts lol.
I hope so too. Guess I'll be busy this weekend then if I want to get out of this rut. I think it's hard to be that kind of person. The kind of person who tries to reach out to others or lend an ear. I feel like you'd get bogged down w/ other people's troubles and they won't necessarily do the same for you when you're down yourself. Idk, it feels sometimes like making oneself into a punching bag. Gah... reminds me of my ex-gf X___X.... Yea, I also think giving advice is difficult, especially when you can't really relate. But like you may have mentioned, just having someone listen is helpful in a way.
I don't mind your rambles. I tend to do the same. That's probably why I tend to leave longer messages and the like. Plus it kind of fills the void. In a real life conversation when people are talking, I don't really have the time to consider my words or think about other things as I say them. Therefore, I feel like it's much easier for me to communicate w/ others through text than not. I think there are plenty of people who are like that. Do you consider your online persona and real life person to be about the same? Sometimes, I think people can become less introverted through a computer screen.
Hmm, I guess I'm a bit of the opposite right now. If you haven't noticed, I've been sending "bumming" messages to people who have posted in the Introduction thread. I guess it reflects a bit of what I'm experiencing right now as well as my what I've noticed in my 2-ish months here at MaiOtaku.
Have you ever stacked up a list of things you had planned to do when you're no longer busy, but once you are actually free, you still don't even get that list of things to do done? I feel like that's me and the things I have to do, or more like reflects my reading list.
I'm glad you come off as an upbeat person online, just don't burn yourself out w/ it. I have been quite the happy go lucky person online before and I've realized it can take a lot of energy to be upbeat and the like. Have you noticed that?
Ah, well it's good to know you aren't a slob and can shake what your momma gave you at clubs. Not to say I know what kind of dances occur at clubs. I don't do any clubbing. Sometimes I think being fashionable is a brave thing b/c you have to dress much more different than the norm o.O... Being busy can be a blessing and a curse at times. Whenever I used to have summer vacation, there would be points of time where i'd wish I had school, just so I had something to do. Keeping yourself busy can be a challenge in of itself. I don't know if it would hold true to you, since you seem to be pretty upbeat o.O.
Oh, seems like you should make some music videos. Just thinking of some off the top of my head, I really how Big Bang, the korean group, do their music videos. I guess overall korean music videos are quite bright and vibrant and that seems appealing. You'd probably need some good dancers too.
Since you're so into art, do you consider yourself fashionable? What about being a good dancer?
How is University life compared to your JC? I've done some of both, and I've learned to enjoy smaller Universities.
Have you made any commercials or music videos yet? I feel like those would be some common videos that universities require you to do. Are you in your senior year? I feel like being a commercial director would be a profitable job as you'd have a lot of jobs all the time, but I'm not sure how the pay would be.
If I ever get interested in that stuff, I'll be sure to look for some experts. I can only see myself doing something like that for personal reasons. I could see myself in the future editing video for important events, like family reunions or weddings and the like. If I ever got really interested in animation, I think it'd be sweet to make a short animation. I'd probably start out with a good story and simple graphics.
Do you have a soundproof room in your house or apartment? Just curious b/c my cousin likes to do dubbing, but he's had confrontations w/ the cops before for being too loud. I feel like it wouldn't be too hard to make a soundproof room, but I don't know how soundproof you can make it w/ just he material you can buy online or at the store.
Well at least I believe editors have a fluid job, as they can work in multiple industries if the film industry doesn't work for them. One of the questions I've always kind of wondered is how people choose which software or equipment to use. I assume that people who go to school for film are introduced to the different types of equipment and software, but there has to be some more professional stuff that is standard or above standard. I mean I would find it hard to believe if a 10 million dollar film was made only using windows movie maker o.O...
Oh I didn't know about that. Hmm, I guess that's why there's so many B-class horror films. Reminds me of pornos and how those are can also be cheaply made for perhaps a lot of money or not depending on luck. I sometimes wonder if you have a really good storyline or writer who wrote a great story, if that would shine through everything? Maybe it would have to include some great actors? I've always kind of felt bad for editors b/c I feel like they have to pull a lot of over time to hit their deadlines.
