ALSO... What is up with all the hate people are giving BBCoders right now? These people put hours into their work so that someone else can use them for free. Love or hate them, at least respect their hard work. You going off about how you hate them without acknowledging that first makes others feel like shit. You can at least be decent and understand why people might like to use them or why a coder creates them in the first place. If you hate bbcodes, ignore them and look elsewhere! It's that simple. I'll never understand why people have to bash on others for something they like when it's not hurting anyone.
Thank you to all our coders! You do so much for people who love to immerse themselves in a universe. Be that through the writing or through visuals or both.
Random thought of the night: It genuinely scares me how dependent I am on my family. Like, I've nothing if I haven't got them. I'd be ruined without them. And I don't mean family in a I'm married and have three kids kind of way. I mean the way in which I'm a grown ass adult and still cling to my parent's hip pockets and won't go out anywhere unless it's with one of my sisters.
Having a bit of a melt down. I might be absent for a few days here, but I'll shoot everyone a message when I get back. If I've expressed interest in joining anything, I'm very much still interested! I'm working on my characters in the workshop and I'll have them posted as soon as I can.
I've the urge to share something with the world. To leave some small part of myself behind after I die or everything's gone to shit. But how is this feasible when I've an even stronger urge screaming at me to stay in bed all day and do nothing? Or why should it matter when there are so many other things I should be spending my time on? Things that are infinitely more important than writing some fantastical book about characters that could never dream of impacting the world the way I want them to? I mean... I'll give it a go, but I've been saying that since high school and it's been almost five years now with no progress.
The current state of the world is seriously bumming me out. It has been for some time. When do things get better? When can we all just rest peacefully and live our lives without some crisis breathing down our necks? When can we all be happy and content and not feel guilty about it? When will things finally be okay?
