Beau Machinima and Mini Rant

Warning: Hide the kiddles! Colorful language ahead

I found a beautiful and amazing machinima for Helena by My Chemical Romance. I stumbled upon it watching Sims 2 MCR machinimas. This twat uploaded it to YouTube and bluntly stated that it wasn't theirs, with a link to the original. If it's not yours, don't upload it -_-'

Anyway, fantastic TS2 machinima, check it here.

<3 MCR

Wish I could have the CD. It was within reach! I was out and about on Tuesday and I saw The Black Parade on a CD rack. My dad was busy talking to a salesperson, so I just sort of stared at it for ten minutes xD The worst part (aside from the fact that it was overpriced) was that little label in the lower left corner. "Parental Advisory: Explicit Content." For shit's sake, my dad took away my Hedley CD because two songs said "fuck" and he didn't think "Don't Talk to Strangers" was appropriate, and that CD didn't even have a parental warning! He'd never let me get it. I can see where he's coming from. He just wants to protect his 'baby girl' from the big bad world. NEWS FLASH: I am no longer your baby girl. I am starting high school in September. Shouldn't that count for something?

I'm going to quote a Facebook like here, okay? Teenagers: The most misunderstood people in the world. Are treated like children but expected to act like adults. How can you expect me to act like an adult if you treat me like I'm six?

Alright, so that was a bit of blather. Apologies, but it is really frustrating that my parents can't let go of the fact that I am no longer their baby girl. I am going to HIGH SCHOOL in September. I officially left elementary school for the LAST TIME today.

*sigh* I'm going to try to get out of the house as much as possible this summer. As much as I love them, I need a break from my [immediate] family. (Cousins and shit not so much. I can at least talk to them about school without them judging all of the boys in my grade as ignorant twats because of sixth grade. They have matured since then. They are no longer all ass wipes who enjoy what brings me pain. They are all entirely fine except for the douchewaffles, but every school has those.)

And reading this over I now realize I sound like a whiny bitch. Great.

And now I'm talking to myself on the computer too. Even better.

I'm just going to publish before I do anything else stupid.

Updates on Pretty Much Everything

It feels like I haven't posted in forever, but it's really only been about a week (which is quite a while for me when you check my archive :P ). So, here are a few random updates. Note that they are in no particular order, I've just typed them as the came.

Moonlit Nights: The Luna Legacy
The site is up, and is over here.

I now know how to add text links!
As is obvious from the last update.

Monday marked my official grade eight graduation ceremony. It was fantastic! It was very well done, and I must say, the food was great xD I danced my ass off! Rocked the night with Sally, we're the party people :P Despite the angry rants, she's a great friend. As normal friends do, we have our disagreements, and they are more often than not ugly, but once they're resolved we're high flying again, so to speak. Anyway, danced like hell with Sally (even for the slow songs xD ) and just had a fantastic time.

The Last Day
Today was the last day of school. It was a half day. We spent most of the time outside. During recess (my very last recess :'( Damn I'll miss those) we took a huge group photo of most everyone in the grade. Of COURSE I forgot my freaking camera, but everyone put all their pics up on Facebook, so I'm good xD I'm surprised at the small amount of people crying, last year's grad class was blubbering like babies.

So... um... Yeah. That's really it. I'm pretty sure I've forgot something, though. May update later...

Coming Soon to a New Blog Near YOU!

I've decided to start a rainbowcy! I created a founder at the start of June out of boredom, but I'm officially going to use her! What with summer break starting next week, I'll have tons of time to get chapters done! I'm unbelievably excited! Now all I need is the latest Pose Player update, the latest update for Twallan's Animator, the Master Controller mod, Sugar Valley and a helluva lot of creativity!

Thanks to paco1200 for being my twentieth follower :D I'll gladly put some goodies up soon to celebrate these many milestones I've missed (lol, that sounds incredibly cheesy xD), especially with the coming of summer vacation :D
Now, back to that science project my teacher claims to be marking and putting on our report cards even though it's most likely too late in the year to change our marks. My last day of school is a half day next Wednesday.

LOL Yellowjackets

(By the way, are we the only ones pleased to find Americans calling them wasps instead of that silly name yellowjackets which makes them sound more like golfers…)
I've never heard anyone call them yellowjackets. before. Actually, that's the first I've ever heard of the term O_o

Jun 15, 2011

Thanks everyone so much for bringing my blog up to what it is today :D And we aren't just at 6000 hits, but we're also almost at 20 subscribers! One more and there's another bloggity milestone! Thank you everyone so much  :3
The Shininess feels loved <3

Behind Backs and Around Arms

**Warning: Hide the kiddies! Explicit language**
This is yet another rant about friend problems, so if you don't give a shit, close the tab.

This particular story involves Sally from my previous post, and some new characters whose names were also cleverly concealed with generic names.

It was a normal Monday, nothing new. I was talking with Sally and a few other people who I won't name because they aren't that involved in the rest of the story. We approached the topic of this dude who I will call Billy. I remarked, "Heh heh... He's a desparate asshole." And please read on, there is an explanation behind that remark.

This Billy dude used to date a friend of mine. They dated for roughly two weeks before she broke up with him. He continued to beg and grovel for her back, for at least three or so weeks afterwards. That begging involved multiple Facebook messages and letters in her pencil case. Then he treated her like a dumbass, claiming to be involved in gangs and saying it was good they broke up because of this ridiculous story: There was a dude outside the bakery when we were having lunch and when I left early the dude was there he had a gun and he stabbed my face and I got his gun and threw it on top of the bakery THEY ARE GOING TO KILL YOU (or something along the lines). This date they went on was on a Sunday. He came back to school Monday, 100% fine, not a single scratch or bruise. And this friend of mine he dated is my closest friend, so this seriously pissed me off that he was playing her for an idiot.

So I remarked this (extremely stupidly) and Sally went and told Billy what I'd said. I should have known better than to mention this around Sally (she's done this before) but I just wasn't thinking about it. It just popped out, and I know see just how stupid and immature it was to say that either way, whether Sally was going to tell him or not.

Time for the new characters (whom I will name after sims because I feel like it): Tom, Claire and Amy. (Tom Wordy [LN], Claire Ursine and Amy Bull [AMB])

So, back to the rant, Sally told Billy and all hell broke loose.

Tom is Billy's best friend, but I don't think he gave a shit. He's never said anything about it and he acts perfectly normal around me. But Billy, being the epic rage quit he is (he epic rages about most things he doesn't like) pulled a stunt of cussing me out and throwing a tantrum. He then got Amy to ask me why a bunch of times. I refused to tell them, because he had very specifically worded the letters "OPEN ALONE" and I'm fairly sure he didn't want anyone else to see/know about the Facebook conversation about being involved in gangs. I have refused to tell anyone my reasoning because if word of that gets around, not only will I be in bigger shit, but so will said ex-girlfriend. He has continued the hissy fits all of the time, and now he thinks I've been telling other people, too. I mentioned it ONCE in front of Sally. That was THE ONLY time I ever said it to anyone. The words have not escaped my mouth since.

Sally was already pissed at me for saying "Yay" when she said she failed a math test because I honestly wasn't paying attention (which I have explained to her multiple times, but she's stubborn as hell). Now she's pissed at me for what I said about Billy. I have not once denied it. I know that denying saying it will only get me in bigger shit. But now she and Claire are casting me out of the group as much as they possibly can and laughing about it (or at least Claire is, Sally not so much).

And now not just Billy and Sally are pissed at me, but so is Claire (this is where she comes in). Claire has continued to downcast me out of the group. Others have claimed me the asshole for saying such a thing (and laughing about that, too ["Ya, Caitlin's the asshole. Ah ha ha!"]).

This group of friends has a Facebook group, which I will call Friends because I don't want anyone trying to search it up. Friends consists of Sally, Amy, Billy, Tom, two other girls and myself, with Claire as one and only admin. Or at least it used to. Yesterday after school Claire booted me, and Billy made the most immature wall post (aimed at me) in the history of immature wall posts. I was going to drop anyway, but it still hurt to be kicked out, especially by someone I considered a friend.

Amy has stuck with me throughout this. She was pissed at me yesterday, but she, like Tom and one other girl, has gotten over it by today. She's been trying to help me and trying to see me out through this. I can't be more grateful right now, as she's the only one I can really talk to about this. She's the only one who was there and gets it. Though she's annoyed my reasoning is hidden, she still tries to help me.

Ramble over. *sigh* Bullshit's goin' 'round these days...

Generations PicSpam Part 1/2: Marioa Family

The following pictures were taken last Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The couple we'll be peering at today is the Marioa family, residing in Twinbrook. Sadly, no new town with Generations to incorporate all of the new items.

Here is the couple in question: Michi and Mario Marioa (I only realized it was all M's and that Mario and Marioa are virtually the same thing when I started the game xD). Oh, and Michi is pregnant.

And the babbeh's comin' :P

I always catch the BEST "Water is Broken FREAK OUT" faces xD

Meet Dylan Marioa. I forget his traits.




 Dylan got an IF! :D lol It looks like a cow xD

 A mother with a baby in arms and a bun in the oven ready to pop!

 lol Game glitch xD That happens whenever she picks him up to take him out of the stroller for a split second before the proper animation shows..

And I leave you with this piece of fail xD They just arrived at their destined lot.
Part 2/2 up later.

Why: The Ultimate Question

Ugly. It's a word we use to describe things we don't find visually appealing. It's a word we use to describe things that are bad, or things that went bad. It's a word we use as an insult to someone or something. Being called ugly, or calling someone else ugly, is not a nice thing.

Now, a while back, a few months into the school year, so I'm guessing 'round November-ish, a friend told me something. Let's call this friend Sally, for privacy reasons. Make note that Sally can be brutally honest - honesty can be nice, but in moderation. I once parted my hair too far off to the side and made a comment on how it didn't really suit me, and she said "Yeah, it looks horrible." I was talking to Sally, I forget what about, but she abruptly told me, "The guys think you're ugly, Caitlin. You may not have been hearing it, but I have."

The guys in my grade are hard to please, I know that. I've heard these two dumbasses talking about how there are "no hot girls" in our grade, and how last year's grade eights were hotter. Those girls were a bunch of makeup whores and sluts, with exorbitant amounts of makeup caked on - so mush so you can hardly see their faces - and low-cut tops to their belly buttons. Boys will be boys, I guess.

Now, I have a fairly good self esteem - I know I'm beautiful despite what people say, I never gob on makeup to cover blemishes (I only ever really wear mascara and a bit of gloss) and I've never been one to do something absolutely fantastic and say that it sucks. Despite all of this, that stung. That really stung.

I've been thinking about this a lot tonight. It's the very reason I turned my laptop back on, so I could make this post. But I've been thinking, why do I care? I know that I'm beautiful, I know that the guys are into sluts except for a select few I hang out with, why do I care?

It's just been bugging me, and I had to get it out. Sometimes you guys are the only ones there to listen when I need to rant (especially when it's 12:30 in the morning xP ).
