Five Things Which Annoy Me:I
. Being told to visit someone's gallery/deviation. I don't mind people asking me to visit specific deviations to give constructive criticism, but you could at least write a note specifically to me and not to a whole list of people and tell me why you want me to see it. Please, please, please do not send me a message on msn/yahoo/aim just to get me to look at your gallery and give a bunch of comments. When I talk to someone new I ask him or her if they have a deviantart gallery, and if they do I visit it. I'll comment on a specific piece if you ask, or on any that catch my eye. If I feel like it
. Being ordered
to visit someone's gallery/deviation. It takes very little effort to be polite, and rudeness ticks me off so much. It also triggers my annoying tendency towards passive aggression, so don't expect much out of me.III
. People who only
talk to me on msn/yahoo/aim when they need something, have a new deviation they want me to comment on, or to ask me to do something time consuming for them. I don't mind viewing a picture, doing a picture, helping with a picture, coding a website/layout, or teaching someone to do something if they are a friend of mine, but I resent being talked to only for that. I like helping people, but I really dislike being taken advantage of.
And if I have you one my watch list, most likely I've already or I will see the deviation you want me to look at.
I'm very sorry, but I think I'm going to have to start charging for this crap. Or just refusing to do it. Oh, guilt.IV
. Being yelled at for not giving/returning comments. I know I'm crap at it and I feel really bad about it. I'm really pathetically, painfully shy, though, and most of the time I just don't know what to say. If I like it I'll add it to my favorites (and comment if I can), and if someone asks me a question I haven't already answered numerous times on the same deviation I will try to answer it. I interact better one-on-one with people, so if there's something you really need to know note me, email me, or send me an instant message. Otherwise, though, just remember I suck, but still appreciate every single comment/fav/whatever I receive. Even the ones that don't make any sense.V
. Drama. Come one, people! Why must we all act like bitchy junior high students to people we will most likely never meet in real life? And yes, I know I sound kind of hypocritical here.
And to prove that I can think of something nice to say, here are some things that I do like:Five Things Which Do Not Annoy Me:I
. Comments. Yay!II
. Talking to like-minded people on msn/yahoo/aim. Which sounds almost unbearably corny and stupid
. Art. Especially vector art. IV
. Books. As long as they aren't crap.V
. Roman numerals. For I am a geek.
If you have any questions, comments, gripes or complaints, please tell me. If you think maybe you are one of the instant messenger type people I was complaining about, the fact that you're here reading all this crap means you most likely aren't.
My sketches. For my sweetheart, the drunk. Mwah.
