  1. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Rant Thread   

    A girl who was one of my best friends until just over a year ago is suddenly acting really passive aggressively towards me. The reason we aren't friends anymore is because we drifted apart... or so I thought. She's arranging a trip with some friends (obviously not including me), my other best friend who I'm still in contact with was invited. It just really annoys me that she's calling people that she's known for barely over a year her 'best friends', then what does that make me? We were best friends for years and I stuck with her through so much of her drama and she repays me by posting snide remarks on facebook. I feel like I'm missing something out and someone has spread rumours about me to her and I feel like crap because she seems to have kept contact with everyone in our friendship group except me despite the fact that I was closer to her than most of the others. I don't know why I even bother to make friends sometimes because people always end up turning their backs on me in the end.

    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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.
    (I don't know if I've tagged correctly haha).

  7. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic What would you do if somebody posted you in the Snowflake section?   

    If that did happen, I feel like I'd try to answer everyone's questions and prove any rumours wrong. Then again it would be pretty entertaining to just lurk and see what people would have to say about me and what rumours and accusations people would make. Honestly though it is highly unlikely I'd ever find myself in such a situation as I rarely post anything on social media. In fact the only social media account I have is facebook and the last time I posted anything was 2009. The reason for this is because if I was to have any other social media accounts I feel like I'd post something I'd look back on and be embarrassed about and make myself cringe.

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

    I have exactly the same problem, after I've washed my face in the morning my skin looks fine (not too oily and not dry either) then after an hour or so it begins to look super oily and shiny again and it makes me feel super self conscious. I only use water and a light cleanser for sensitive skin to wash my face and I only use this once a day (twice at most). I also use a light moisturiser as I've heard people say that using moisturiser prevents your skin getting oily, but for me it has had no effect. To make matters worse I also have pretty severe acne. I feel like your best option is going to a dermatologist/doctor as I too don't know of any effective solutions and I feel like that's my only option too.  
    Does this really work? I have some argan oil at home and I use it on my hair and it does wonders, but I've never thought about using it on my skin (my skin is similar to OP's) because I thought oil would make it worse.

  9. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Mars Argo   

    I only found out about Mars Argo recently and I've got to say that I really like her music. My personal favourite of her songs is 'beauty is empty'. It's a little sad that I was so late to discover her as many of her videos are deleted, some have been re-uploaded to youtube but I feel like I've missed out.  I can definitely understand why people always compare Mars Argo and Poppy though it does get a little annoying as I like both of them so it sucks when I see people putting down one to praise the other.

  10. BionicBumblebee added a topic in Skincare   

    I've suffered from acne since the age of 11, it was bearable at first but as I've got older it's gradually gotten worse to the point where my face is just completely covered in acne and acne scars so it's impossible not to notice. I feel like it's really knocked my confidence and self esteem as it makes me feel really ugly. I've tried numerous treatments over the years, have an extensive skincare routine, drink plenty of water and have a relatively healthy diet but nothing has been effective. I'm currently 18 years old and I feel like my skin should have cleared up long ago which stresses me out because everyone around me who is the same age has clear skin. I've decided that the only solution at this point is making a trip to the doctor/dermatologist. As such I was wondering if anyone here has taken acutane before and what their experiences were. Most importantly, I'd like to know if it's actually worth taking it or not and if it is a solution in the long run rather than a temporary fix.

  11. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic RiceGum   

    I've never liked Ricegum's videos, I personally think that it's wrong of him to basically bully children. He could easily just ignore their videos/ comments about him, but instead he decides to mock them in his videos and his followers harass whoever he 'roasted' by spamming all their social media accounts with Ls and leaving nasty comments. While I do agree that the musical.ly s that some of the children make are inappropriate, it certainly does not warrant the bullying that Ricegum does. On top of all this it makes me cringe that he seems to think that he can actually rap when he has zero talent in rapping. Honestly he's just an attention seeker and the sooner his channel dies down the better.

    I absolutely love absurd and creepy youtube videos, here are some of my favourites:
    There are a few more that I've currently forgotten about, when I remember I'll be sure to share them. Hope I haven't given you guys nightmares.

    Is it just me or has she deleted her recent videos (the one about tanning etc). Does anyone know why? I can't imagine that it has anything to do with this whole re-branding 'rebirth' of her brand or anything so I'm confused.
    She's been pretty much MIA on youtube for a while now and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't return to youtube any time soon if at all because she seems to be busy with so many other things. It does make me a little sad seing as she stared off on youtube and she wouldn't be where she is today without all the support from her subscribers, but at the same time she doesn't owe anyone anything and therefore doesn't have to make youtube videos if that's where her passion no longer lies. I've pretty much lost interest in her at this point and I've heard many others saying the same thing. I feel like if she stayed more active on youtube she'd be one of the huge youtubers. In some ways I'm glad that she isn't as active thought as the newer videos just weren't my cup of tea, I used to watch her for her makeup tutorials and it seemed that her newer videos just lacked a personal touch and lacked personality (I don't really know how to explain this any better).

  14. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Rant Thread   

    Thought I'd come back to this thread because I need to get some more things off my chest:
    This relates to my last post actually. So basically the guy that likes me has now started messaging me even more than before, I thought it was bad enough getting bombarded with three notifications and now I often get up to ten at once. Some of the questions he's asking me are getting pretty personal and I don't feel comfortable answering them. This is as he's a friend, but we're just not that close. I'm finding it hard to stay calm and polite towards him, I find myself often ignoring my messages almost all the time. Then, just when I thought he'd finally left me alone, I found out that he's been stalking all my online accounts and has also looked at family members' accounts. I mean I get that he likes me and even though I don't like him back he's obviously still allowed to have a crush on me, however, I just feel like he's crossed the line and is becoming a borderline stalker at this point. Quite frankly he's destroyed any chance he might have ever had with me because stalking is behaviour that's just a huge warning sign for me. I just don't know what to do. I'm considering blocking him on all social media and just steering clear of him whenever I can, it would be for the best. This is the second time I've had stalkers and it makes me really uncomfortable. I'll put the other instance of stalking under spoilers if anyone cares enough to read it:
    To the guy that this all concerns: If you've stalked me enough to find this post, please just stop. I'm through being nice, this is the final straw and I won't tolerate your behaviour anymore. Stalking is very serious and won't be taken lightly.

  15. BionicBumblebee added a post in a topic Shave the face   

    I've always wondered about this too because I have naturally dark and thick hair so the hairs on my face are thicker and more noticeable than most other girls' so I'm super self conscious about it. Personally, I'd be too scared to shave the hair on my face because I feel like it would grow back stubbly and appear more visible because of that. I think the best solution would be laser removal but it's super expensive, other than that I think waxing would probably be better.
