    How to overcome shyness
    I've always been super shy and introverted and it's made life pretty difficult at times. I've always had very few friends and currently none at all because I can't talk to anyone unfamiliar and when I do I'm barely audible or turn bright red. I can't even go to shops or anything because I don't know what to say to the people at the checkout. Sometimes when I try to talk I open my mouth and I just can't get words to come out. It's gotten to the point where I rarely leave the house because being around crowds stresses me out, I just feel like everyone is staring at me and judging me or something so I avoid eye contact with everyone. Has anyone got any advice for overcoming this because I feel like I'm being held back in life and I just don't know what to do at this point.
    OT: Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place, if it is better suited in another category feel free to move this thread.

  3. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic kpop crack youtubers   

    I used to watch some Kpop crack videos back when I was still into Kpop, mainly EXO ones. One thing I have noticed is that a lot of the jokes are really sexual, maybe it's just me being prudish but it made me feel a little uncomfortable. I can't remember which exact video it was but I remember in one EXO video in particular there was a dance practice video and they zoomed into one of the member's crotches and it made me super uncomfortable because that's just going too far in my opinion ( I believe the video may have been by SwogliciousPuppysaurus). They should think more about how the idols featured in the video would feel if they saw the video before they upload it because they're just embarrassing themselves and giving the fans a bad name.

    Personally I have mixed feelings about Buzzfeed. I hate to admit it but, I do enjoy watching some of their videos e.g. the makeover type ones and the ones like the wedding dresses across the world, historically accurate Disney princesses etc. However, I also dislike how they push a political agenda, in particular all this 'body shaming' nonsense. I can understand that people who are overweight do receive criticism for simply existing but I feel that instead of trying to push their agenda to change people's beauty standards and make them feel like jerks for having preference they should promote health and fitness. Some of their employees are quite annoying, for me I find Kelsey (I think that's her name anyway) super irritating because she always whines about being single and tries way too hard to seem relatable but just comes across as kind of obnoxious. However, I do like most of ladylike especially Jen and Freddie. What I don't understand is why Eugene is so popular, he's kind of boring to me, I can understand that people have different opinions but he just has so many fans that I'm a little confused. I swear every time I check the comments section on a video he's featured in there are hundreds of comments fawning over him as opposed to comments focused on the contents of the video.

    Pretty little liars
    Seing as season 7B is going to start soon I was wondering who you guys think AD might be and what your opinions are on the show.
    Personally, my main suspects are: Ali, Aria and Wren. Though the Spencer is A theory has got me suspecting her a little too. The reason I suspect the aforementioned characters is because apparently AD was in the pilot episode which kind of narrowed it down.  I've seen some people saying it could be Melissa but because of the schedule of her actress it seems like Melissa may not even be in 7B or may only make small appearances which makes me think that she isn't going to play a very big role in the story.
    I really hope they haven't messed up the plot of the show because for me it's just gone down hill since season 5 because of the disjointed plot and plot holes. So I really hope that they actually did plan AD from the start like the claim.
    Also, couples wise who do you guys want to end up together?
    I'm hoping for Hannah+Caleb, Aria+Jake, Spencer+Wren and Emily+Maya. I highly doubt the last three will end up together though (especially Emily+Maya for obvious reasons).
    I added a poll with the most common suspects because I think it'll be interesting to see who is most suspected.

  7. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic JREKML   

    I've seen a few of his videos back when I was still into Kpop, he seemed like a quite funny guy. However, I always got the impression that he was sometimes too scared to state his true opinions on a song in case he upset any rabid fans. I've just checked his channel again recently for the first time in a few years and I have to say it seems like he is a little less genuine? (I don't feel like this is the best word to use but I can't think of a better one right now) than he used to be. What I mean is, it seems like he doesn't enjoy what he does as much as he used to and his reactions have became more contrived with less variation. Maybe I'm just being overly harsh because I don't really enjoy reaction videos. Nonetheless, he still seems like a nice guy so if the comments about him cutting the lines are true that's honestly disappointing.

  8. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Unpopular opinions   

    I haven't posted to this thread for a while so I thought I'd share a few more of my unpopular opinions:
    I can't stand Kpop anymore, especially BTS (and the other million try-hard hip hop groups). I used to listen to Kpop quite avidly from 2010 until around 2014 ish, but over the years as it's become more popular the fans have become more and more obnoxious and it's sucked all the enjoyment away. I'm so sick of seing people leaving the 'OMG your an armyy to!!!!111!!!' or 'OMG fellow Kpopper!11!!!!!!' comments on every single video even when there is no remote connection to Kpop. I don't care if people say it's only a few BTS fans that do this, I've seen so many at this point that I couldn't care less how many of their fans are like that as I've seen more than enough of them to irritate the hell out of me.Relating to my last point, I hate how people describe Kpop groups as 'dorky' and say how these idols are so cool for not caring about their image. I mean come on, do you really think that they don't act in a contrived way? The so called 'dorky' behaviour is an image in itself as the idols are told to act that way to seem more relatable and 'quirky' to their fans.I despise it when people call themselves '_______ trash' when they're a big fan of something. It's not funny or original. If you are a fan what's wrong with just calling yourself a fan.Fat/obese people need to stop complaining about not finding clothes in their size. Seriously, whenever I watch TV every single damn advert for clothing is exclusively for sizes 12-32 (UK size) and yet fat/obese people still complain about not finding clothes in their size. Besides if you're so fat that they don't make clothes big enough here's a suggestion: lose weight.No one is naturally obese. I hate it when people blame genetics for their weight. Get some self control and learn to control your portion size and eat a more balanced diet. Sure, some people have thyroid issues etc, this makes it harder for them to lose weight but it still doesn't mean that it's impossible to be a healthy weight with these issues. I wish people would take more responsibility for their weight before blaming everyone and everything else.

    I just took the quiz and I scored equally for Ojou and Yamato nadeshiko, I feel like the descriptions did fit me fairly accurately
    Taking quizzes like this is my secret guilty pleasure when I'm bored

  12. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic How to deal with a racist friend?   

    To be blunt, as the other users have said already it would be best to just cut them from your life. I've had a similar experience because I'm from England and when the whole Brexit vote was going on it really showed me which of my friends were racist and which weren't. Some of my friends made remarks about refugees and immigrants in general that left me feeling really uncomfortable considering the fact that I'm mixed race. When I confronted them about it they just awkwardly said that they didn't mean to offend me and yet they clearly had not changed their views which I just can't forget, so I've cut contact with them. While it is sad to lose friends who were once close, it's for the best if they've began to show their true racist self.

  13. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Pewdiepie   

    Just to give my two cents on this whole mess, I don't think he thought about what he was doing at all which is really stupid on his part. Honestly as a public figure he should have realised that there'd be backlash for his joke whether he was serious or not due to the sensitivity of the subject matter. In the past the media were always the first to jump at any chance to criticise him, so he should have realised that they would do the same this time too. On top of this people now a days love a good old witch hunt and jumped straight onto the hate bandwagon which blew things way out of proportion without even caring to watch his video first. However, I do feel like he went too far this time with his edgy humour. I had just started to like him and now I'm just not so sure what to think.
    In regards to the videos made by Mark and Jack, I feel like it would have been better if they'd just kept their mouths shut. In the past when youtubers got themselves involved in drama of any kind it never worked out well. So, if anything they're kind of drawing more attention to the matter and adding to the problem whether this was their intention or not.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to reply.
    It seems that it is probably worth me giving acutane a go from what you have said and haha I'll remember to avoid retinoids.

  15. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Am i the only one with this skin problem?oily skin problem!!   

    Seeing as you asked, just thought I'd give an update: I've been using argan oil rather than my usual moisturiser since this post and I have to say that it does seem to have had some effect. My skin is slightly less oily than it was. It does still get a little oily but it takes longer than it used to. However, my acne is still just as bad as it was previously.
