    I seem to come back to this thread a lot, then again my usually drama free life has been filled with drama this year and I need some place to vent.
    Anyway, I am so sick of having friends. I swear I have the worst luck when it comes to friends, they either move away and lose contact with me or turn out to be lying back stabbers. My friendship group that originally consisted of 5 close friends that had been good friends for years has now dwindled down to just one person (and I don't even know if she's still a friend either). For 3 of them we just drifted apart and moved on with our lives. The other 2 turned out to be liars and back stabbers (I'll refer to them as A and B). So friend A clearly doesn't care about keeping in contact with me, she'll ignore my messages for months on end and then reply with one word answers as if she just doesn't want to talk. Yet if I don't even try to contact her she'd complain that I'm not making an effort to be her friend. Usually me, A and B meet up every month to catch up, its been our tradition for years now. This past year A has either ignored our messages or made excuses. Turns out we ended up bumping into her multiple times as she had lied to us and made plans with other people instead. She felt bad for lying to bail out so she promised to arrange another meet up to make up for it, I haven't heard from her for months and I don't feel like I will again (she has told more lies, but I don't want to go into detail). Moving on to friend B, she has started complaining that I don't message her enough yet when I do message her she just ignores me. She claims that she isn't friends with one of the others from our original group and would constantly slag this other friend off. Turns out she was being two faced and I caught her meeting up with this other friend who she apparently 'hates' and I overheard her slagging me off to them. I just wish if they no longer had interest in being my friend they'd be honest with me, I'm always honest with them and now I just don't know why I ever bothered. From now on I think I'll stick to being a loner like I was before I had this group of 'friends'.

    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.

    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.

  4. 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'm so sick of my friends making my love life their business, they seem so concerned over the fact that I've never had a boyfriend to the point that it's really beginning to grate on my nerves. One of my friends had the nerve to ask if I was a lesbian just because I've never had a boyfriend, when will people understand that just because someone has never had a boyfriend it doesn't mean they aren't straight. A few guys have shown an interest in me but I just haven't found any of them attractive. My friend seems to think that I should just throw myself at any guy who shows a vague interest in me and quite frankly it's getting really irritating. I'm the sort of person that would rather wait for the right guy to begin a relationship with even if it means waiting forever I don't care because I have other priorities in life, especially at the moment with exams coming up.
    That's so true, one of my friends has recently became a koreaboo and she uses this languages app thing. Most of the people that chat to her on this app are middle aged Korean men who leave creepy messages. She says that she wants to go to Korea to meet them and I keep trying to tell her how creepy and dangerous it is but she just won't listen.

    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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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).

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

    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.

  15. 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.
