I'm barely getting enough hours at my retail job to survive and have had no luck in finding a second job. I've slowly grown to hate it, the customers here are so entitled because we coddle them and it's made me really appreciate retail/service workers even more.

I've been working customer service at a grocery store for almost three years, I've been applying for full-time jobs after graduating uni or even just a new part time that pays better and I don't get any messages or notifications back even for a flat-out rejection, it's become really disheartening. Even though I hate this job I've become dependent on it and feel anxious about working elsewhere.

have a nice story of what an average customer is like:
>At customer service desk, looking around, accidentally make contact with lady, she starts waddling over
>she's is basically a troll, gross body and the deepest gravelly voice so low I can barely understand her sometimes
>She's always trying to return shit for cash, without a receipt, etc.
>lo an behold trying to return shit from another store
>Ask her for the shoppers card that was used on the order
>Gives me her card, tell her it doesn't match, she says they used a different card
>Tell her we can't return it without the card matching
>in .02 seconds she's screaming "FUCK WHITE PEOPLE" and starts yelling about how the black people let her return stuff, how I'm racist, ugly, etc. etc.
>waddles away, stops and screams for a manager, keeps moving as everyone ignores her
>Goes through checkout where she can still see me and keep yelling insults
>she's white

Anyone else have work crushes? I work in a small company and me and my closest coworker are the only people in the same room in the office. He's not like dating material and I'm not like physically attracted but he's kinda sweet/cute in a way. I keep getting a little excited when I see some skin though and I've had a couple dreams that stuff happened. I know this is pretty common so I was wondering if anyone else had stories.

I'm a GD major as well. Look out for events at your school (professionals from behance or adobe just came to my school and we have a lot of professionals that are giving talks) and it's super easy to connect when you're in a familiar environment. Also look for talks and meet-ups in your city, they're really fun. Creative jams are also great.

You can also try to connect with people on instagram, reddit etc. if you're active and post your work and message people. Or apply for an internship in your field! There's so many options, really.

You were 9 years old. It doesn't matter what was happening to you mother(although its very sad), grown ass adults should not yell at children and berate them for caring about animals.

When I was 14 and I was apart of some rping group. We got really close and one day I just decided shitpost and be rude to everyone in the chat anonymously.
One girl messaged me and asked me why I was being so mean. I was so fucking terrible to her and she ended up crying and leaving.
I ended up getting banned cuz IP and all that. Well this same girl had a boyfriend and he ended up talking me after I got banned.
So then after while, he said he had feelings for me and he wasn't sure what he felt for his girlfriend anymore.
They ended up breaking up and yeah. I basically cucked a girl who I was friends with for her boyfriend after I was terrible to her.

At some point Tumblr was actually a pretty decent website before it became the embarrassing cess pool that it is today. Discuss old Tumblr. Were there any blogs/tumblrs that you farmers loved to visit? Or someone that you actually liked/looked up to at the time? Crazies that you loved to hate? Fandoms you miss/were in at the time?

>I'll throw in my 2 cents

I could not get enough of Myrollingstar's tumblr blog, her pictures were so pleasant and pretty.It was so cozy to read and fun to see her artist alley/life posts and clothing hauls.Makes me sad she doesn't post anymore, but it's nice that she's moved on with her life.
I also slightly miss the homestuck fandom, it was fucking out of control but there's was always new content popping up(good and bad), it kept things fresh.

I joined in 2008 and was most active in 2010-2012, with it slowly tapering off as I got a career and everyone I was following was also growing up and getting into different things. My favorite tumblr was something like bruisedbeatenboys, which just posted fanart or doujin of anime boys with bruises or blood on them. I also really liked lawnlawn/bossies's tumblr, as well as milkmanner (who is now publishing Snotgirl). Thankfully I can usually follow any artist from those days on instagram, but sometimes I wonder if I'm forgetting someone I used to really love.

Was anyone in the roleplay community on tumblr?

I started lurking around 2009, but I joined in 2010 because I was really into online roleplay and tumblr had a wide variety of RPers.

Basically there was a "main" tumblr that had an admin who established the plot and characters, then you'd have to submit an 'audition' to be in the roleplay, and once accepted you'd create a tumblr page for your character and then get to interact with other people's characters.

It was huge in the Harry Potter fandom since people loved playing canon characters and/or being their own original character. It was basically acting out fanfiction. Other fandoms were popular, but most of RPs had original plots/characters, or were AUs/crossovers. The majority of it was non-sexual, although there were some dedicated to smut.

It was pretty fun, but the community pretty much turned to shit around 2014. There was tons of drama and fighting, and it's nowhere near as fun.

No. 192270

I was in the Transformers RP fandom on Tumblr around 2011/2012. It was one of the things that got me to sign up on Tumblr. Me and a group of friends decided to join for shits and giggles, and because we were all big fans of Transformers. It could be really fun when you got a good RP going, and I met some nice people through there. But it could also be stressful.

The community I was part of split twice. Once before I joined, and once after. And there was drama too. In fighting from various personalities over what kind of content should be allowed and what shouldn't, and just arguing sometimes in chats. Also, one person was RPing as multiple characters (as many of us did) but was also pretending to be three different people within the RP. This nutjob would pick a fight as one person, then would turn around and act nice as another. She manipulated a couple of people.

I sorta just quit in 2013/2014 or thereabouts. Sometimes I think about joining a different fandom, because I see people RPing my favorite character and all I can think is "you're doing it wrong". But then I remember the stress and the effort and I just chose to not bother.

A good RP that flowed well was really fun though, and I do sometimes miss those genuine good threads I had going.

My family and close friends would obviously be able to tell though, and the reaction I'd be most scared of is my father's.

I have a hook nose (I used to also be self conscious of how broad it is from the front, but I've come to embrace it. I find bigger noses cuter nowadays actually), tissue is "missing" under my eyes (causing permanent dark circles ever since I was 10~ish y/o), long chin which simultaneously looks weak from the side.

Sorry if this sounded whiny, I'm just very self conscious about my appearance. :/

oh, i see. i think that maybe fillers under your eyes would help your appearance but not look too drastic.

i think contouring could help with a weak chin and maybe your nose

No. 192169

Yeah, that'd probably be the first thing if I do actually decide to get something done.

Thanks for the advice! :) I do actually contour my chin, can't really get my nose to look ~natural~, always endd up looking obvious that I contoured, but practice makes perfect I guess haha

And yes, I love dark souls, played all of the three, the second one with the dlcs is my favourite despite it getting the worst rep. I still enjoy dark souls 3, haven't played ringed city, so I started a new build and hopefully will reach it soon.

I kind of dislike the pvp aspect of ds3.


> I really wanna get Bloodborne but I don't wanna spend megabucks on a PS4 just for the game. I wish they'd port it to PC…

Me too. I consider buying the game because dark souls is atm the only game I enjoy playing and it's been so for a longer time. Since ps now will apparently have ps4 games available this autumn, maybe there's a possibility to play it then?

Wow really? That's a shame, I'm happy I didn't buy the game yet. No turian romance?

No. 191917

There is a vetra romance, which is a female turian, but it's very short and with barely any content, like most romances on this game except for PB, Cora and Jaal.

It really sucks, i just want a krogan romance or a male quarian roamance (still salty me2 didn't give us the possibility).

Hopefully the DLC is still in motion and we get the so deserved Quarian romance from it or at least some meat (kek) from the rest of the romances.

Well I guess that's what we have to expect from EA handing the franchise over to some small offshoot of Bioware. None of those people had worked on the original. It really makes me sad that they fucked up the game so badly and from what I hear they're sort of giving up on it too. They want to take a "break" from it.

Help! i started working out 7 weeks ago and I've gained a nice amount of muscle but since I'm overweight it's jut that noticeable that I've changed at all (unless I'm flexing you can't tell how much muscle I've actually gained) and although I'm really happy with that I finally decided to tell my family (partly dreading this and partly so I actually stick to it) but all I got was lots of insults and questions everythibgvcaisr I haven't lost an amazing amount (they expect me to have lost 10+ kilos instead of the 2-3kgs I have lost on fat alone) and it's really upsetting since I've discovered I actually love fitness! And I really want to get some nice muscles I'm a girl so their focus is on weight loss alone.. now they won't stop bothering me when ever I try to workout… and some of them keep trying to derail me cause they've actually gained weight in the time I've been working out. Ugh what should I do? I'm not going to quit working out anytime soon but they have really bad eating habits and you can't out exercise a bad diet
Sorry for the blog post I just need some advice and google has failed me

Fuck 'em anon. If they can't be supportive and happy for you they don't need to be a part of your journey to health. Can you find a time when they're not around to workout? Or maybe even move your workout away from home? Regarding the diet, is it possible for you to make your own meals? Or depending on the type of diet you're trying to follow you may be able to find work arounds for what they're eating. When I was doing a strict LCHF diet and my family wanted pizza I would just take off all the toppings and eat that by itself and throw away the crust. Or if they were having hamburgers I would throw out the bun and not eat any fries.
