i'm sorry herbi that you saw the post can we talk about Kyle Broflovski the Good and Bad i was trying to help and i told him now to disrespect Jewish religion and he said Sorry and i was Trying to help so we can all get along
When I told them not to fight, I was referring to the other people who were getting angry and talking back, not you. I can sense you're a kind person who wouldn't do hurtful things to others, so don't worry, you're doing just fine.
Sorry, I apologize for the inconvenience I caused. While I was undoing Rabbiterguy's edits on Token Black, Silas already reverted his edits before me, causing me to delete those language pages again as I already published it. I see that you already undid my edit. Sorry!:((
Hey :) Since you were so curious about who Tyna was and thought my brief description of her reminded you of yourself, I thought might want to read through this character whenever you get the chance and see whether or not you relate to her. Here is the story below:
Tyna Weaver- African American ancestry; The younger sister of Jeffrey Weaver, Tyna is a young African American student at the middle school who recently moved to New York from Sacramento, California. She is described as being a quirky “every girl” with an offbeat energy and love of metal and alternative rock music, which distinguishes her vastly from many of her fellow peers of color. She has a distinguished love for sci-fi and enjoys reading paranormal sci-fi alien romance books, along with vintage sci-fi and horror comics from the local bookstore. A defining aspect of Tyna’s personality is that she is sensitive, yet free-spirited, always expressing her beliefs in a calm, composed manner.
She is generally seen as a genial, thoughtful, cute, and sweet girl. Her peers have often described her as having a positive, admirable personality and is considered likable with her reluctance to offend and desires to be tolerant and inclusive of those around her. She is an outgoing person with a strong conscience and clear sense of right and wrong, with a well-developed value system and lack of desire to compromise her beliefs for the sake of others. While she is generally well-intentioned, Tyna is nevertheless slightly awkward with her inability to express her emotions clearly, often bottling up what she feels due to having been reared in a loving, yet emotionally distant family. She came from of a stable middle-class upbringing with a mother named Nyla who works as a veterinarian and father named Jerome who earns his living as a landscape architect, yet was deeply affected by her parents’ sudden separation when she was 11 years old, leading her to move across the country with her mother after she received a job offer in New York, meanwhile her father relocated to Oakland and pursued a romantic relationship with another woman.
She often seeks refuge in her older brother Jeffrey, an academic athlete who is skilled at playing basketball, yet expresses a nerdier streak with his love of board gaming and learning trivial factoids. She and Jeffrey are exceptionally close and often bond over video games in the evenings while their mother is working. The two are very much into healthy eating and consider themselves “lacto-ovo vegetarians”, refusing to eat meat, fish, or fowl, but allowing themselves to consume dairy and egg products. She also has a strong love for small animals, being known for wanting to keep many pets at her home despite her mother’s reluctance with her recurrent allergies. She claims to be one of the few people she knows who actually enjoys and celebrates Earth Day, as she sees it as an opportunity to pay respect to her natural environment and do good things for the planet. Tyna doesn’t often take herself too seriously and tends to be rather easygoing and spiritual, considering herself a humble being who “falls in love with souls, rather than faces.”
She has previously received subtle bullying from several of her more popular peers, including a lighter-complexioned African American classmate from her native California named Evelyn who expressed a certain level of haughtiness and sense of superiority in her actions. Tyna is rarely envious however and tends to be forgiving to a fault, often appearing as a calming presence before those around her with her caring, sympathetic nature. Fun and energetic with a magnetic look, she puts on the air of an enlightened individual, although ultimately, she is simply an average girl seeking excitement in her life. She tends to be very direct, but surprisingly wise when advising others and appears to know much about how people work. She can be incredibly insightful when she speaks, shocking others with her strong, astute observations of her environment and deep reflections over life matters.
Tyna is also slightly artistic, often creating elaborate doodles in her notebooks in her spare time and impressing others with her keen attention to detail when creating a new drawing. This leads her to be befriended by Hannah Bergman during their art class, once she takes note of Tyna’s undeniable talent and offers to introduce her to her best friend Mia Carmichael and the rest of her friend group. Tyna quickly connects with Hannah and Mia once they bond over their similar artistic visions and sense an instantaneous chemistry among themselves, as Tyna charms them with her wit and stories of her past life in California. Having little memory of having lived outside of New York State beyond a brief stay in Minneapolis the summer after her 2nd grade following her mother’s death, Hannah is intrigued and fascinated by the prospect of life in a completely different environment, having fanciful visions of the California lifestyle based upon what she has previously seen in films.
Tyna often uses this as an opportunity to slightly stretch the truth to charm her peers and be better received by them, a notorious habit she developed from a young age in her quest for acceptance. Despite her seemingly confident and self-possessed demeanor, Tyna has a slight insecure streak and has often made note of trying to distinguish herself from the rest as a means of achieving social approval and status. While she usually enjoys exhibiting emotional honesty and authenticity, she enjoys standing out among her peers and has made it a point in her personality to try to be unique. She describes herself as someone whom voluntarily tried to deviate from the norm and enjoys making her personality appear radiant and all the more colorful. Although the lies are later discovered and bring some tension among herself and her new friends, Tyna is nonetheless forgiven and accepted into Hannah and Mia’s small friend group, during which they will often spend time together during their lunch periods and visit each other’s houses over the weekends.
She remains one of Hannah’s and Mia’s closest friends and occasionally tries to provide Mia with inspiration for her blogs. The three keep in touch after high school graduation, even as Tyna goes on to attend Pennsylvania State to pursue a degree in Environmental Science. Her personability earns her many admirers, including a slightly nerdy, bespectacled classmate named Matt Brody who openly expressed his affection for her through a gushy, handcrafted love note that Tyna received with “shock and mild discomfort.” Tyna goes on to date Eitan Rothstein for some time during her high school years however after receiving Hannah’s blessings, once Hannah ultimately claims to have resolved her past lingering feelings for Eitan and agrees to maintain an amicable friendship with him.
Tyna has medium brown eyes and is described as a pretty girl with a rich brown skin tone, along with a small, heart-shaped face and a sweet, dimpled smile. She often wears her coarse afro-textured hair in its natural state, with a variety of colorful headbands, and stands at around average height at a consistent 5 ft 3 ½. She wears braces throughout middle school but has them removed the summer before 10th grade. Although she and Eitan are happy for some time, considering each other their first loves, their relationship does not last once they part ways and attend separate colleges, with Eitan choosing to focus completely on his studies to become an electrical engineer at Columbia.
She goes on to pursue an on-and-off relationship with a fellow African American student at Penn State named Miles Fitzgerald who she ultimately breaks up with due to their clashing lifestyles. Tyna eventually marries a handsome man of Afro-Dominican descent named Cruz Castillo who works as a writer and photographer for a travel website called “Solo Friendly.” They wed each other in a reception held at an art museum in Philadelphia and give birth to a daughter they name Iliana Nachelle Castillo. Tyna winds up pursuing a job as a researcher and assistant professor at a local state university in Harrisburg and later gives birth to a second child, a son named Forrest Arnell Castillo. ENFP 4w3
Cool thanks for sending it to me! Some aspects are quite similar to me, while others are quite different. Did you come up with Tyna before or after you knew that I'm a vegan metalhead? I just found that similarity almost uncannily striking.
Lacto-ovo vegetarian is not the same as vegan though. I was a little disappointed as you had said she was a vegan earlier. Vegans don't take animal products including eggs and dairy. I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian since age 15 and became vegan at 22. Gotta put up with awkward situations now and then with people not understanding what I don't eat. Is it just Tyna and Jeffrey who are vegetarians and not their parents?
Despite this I was never one to keep pets other than fish I was given. I was actually terrified of animals like cats and dogs when I was young. After I gave up meat my fear faded away. I think deep down I felt uneasy about eating animals, but I didn't consciously think about it until a couple of events made me reflect. I wouldn't really consider myself an animal lover but someone who values animals' lives. That's another vegan stereotype that I don't fit. Another one is not being fit and healthy lol.
It's so cool that Tyna is a cute and sweet girl and a metalhead. I am like that too. Many metalheads seem tough and more gloomy. I like to be a bright positive person but there are times I can get overwhelmed by negativity. I was much gloomier when I was younger and only found metal when I was 17. I wonder if I had gotten into metal earlier, it would've improved my mental health, because I found a place where I belong and don't have to conform. I desire to be inclusive and tolerant too. Unlike her, I do get envious of people, and I have a hard time forgiving people who have done hurtful things. I got bullied and ostracized when I was young too, not being able to fit in, took me almost a decade to move past some of these things, though there will always be something lingering. Even if I seem nice outwardly, I do have many not so nice thoughts inside, that I don't really tell people. I am spiritual but not religious. I can take things too seriously quite often, but I try to be easygoing.
The habit of stretching the truth is something that is completely different from me. I would consider myself more or less incapable of lying. I need authenticity. Unless I sort of believed something that was incorrect and said it out, then later realised I had lied to myself on some level. I am also almost incapable of killing little insects. I'm guessing Tyna's love for horror is sort of her darker side that likes metal. I was very scared of horror all along but was into it for a period when I was depressed. Now not much anymore, but I'm less scared of it.
I am artistic like her, but probably more so than her. I can't relate to growing up in the states and being African-American simply because I live on the other side of the world. I've never worn braces either though my teeth are hereditarily not good and I did a root canal a few years back.
It's so cool that you write about what she grows up to be. So sweet. Idk what lies ahead of me and if I'll meet a compatible man.
Last time I did the personality test I got ENFP too. Idk what is 4w3 though.
Will you be posting your OCs on a fanfiction website like Wattpad? I think they'll be more suitable there since it's off-topic from South Park. I love reading about them and if you post them on a platform like that let me know I'll go read them.
Hi. I actually came up with the idea of Tyna being a metal head and vegetarian before meeting you, but ironically did notice later on that some of the similarities between herself and you were kind of uncanny. While I am not African American and did not grow up in that culture, I like adding diversity to my stories as I have said before and including all kinds of people. I feel many black Americans are poorly represented in the media too and wanted Tyna to be less of a stereotype, which is why I thought about giving her the traits I did.
It is interesting to here some of your background story, as I can relate to many of the things you mentioned as well. I too get jealous of people very easily and have a habit of comparing myself to other people, especially women who I believe are prettier or more successful in some regard than me. I have a hard time forgiving people and can take things very personally and I said before, can be quite sensitive to rejection and want to be liked and approved of. I also do value authenticity and don’t twist the truth as much as Tyna does.
For the most part, I am an open book and have a hard time bottling up my emotions, so I can not really tell a lie. I am not so much concerned about being unique and standing out either, as love, security, and acceptance motivate me more. This does not mean I will compromise my values or beliefs though, despite the fact that I do tend to go with the flow more and try to me agreeable with others.
Don’t feel too bad about your past. I am sure many people do find you beautiful and would want to be with you. Any man would be lucky to find compatibility with you. If anything, I am the one who is more afraid of not finding anyone, since most of the guys I like tend to have “types” that I do not fit into, either physically or personality-wise. I once liked a guy for instance who was only into redheads, for instance, while another person I was attracted to only liked artsy, soulful girls who were musician types like him, and I am obviously not too musically-inclined.
I have also met guys who thought I was too shy and lacking in self-confidence, and conversely have met guys who said I was too forward and “came on too strong”. I even had a guy tell me once that he didn’t find me attractive or pretty because I had Hispanic features and a brown complexion, while he only preferred white girls despite being Hispanic himself. You can’t please everybody, I suppose.
I am considering posting my stories on Wattpad too, as you suggested. I know these are kind of off topic to South Park, but I really wanted you guys to see them and to receive feedback on them. I will be opening an account on that site soon and hope you will follow my new stories and posts. By the way, the “9w1”, “4w3” etc. that shows up after my characters’ MBTI type is their enneagram, which is a number that describes your personality based on another personality theory that is in the internet.
I thought I was a 4 when I was young only in that I was always envious and quite emotional with an inability to let go of the past, but feel it doesn’t completely fit me because I don’t aim to be unique on purpose or call attention to myself simply for being “different”. I value love between myself and others and acceptance though and feel a sense of security in my environment is important. I am not sure which of the enneagram types I am, but believe I am an INFP. Do I also seem like an INFP to you as well, in terms of MBTI, or what type do I appear to be?
Out of my characters, I am definitely Mia however, although I have a lot of Hannah in me as well.
Oh dang Tyna's similarity to me is indeed uncanny! Wow! Would you make her a vegan? I would be very happy if she is but it's up to you she's your character after all :) You'll definitely know more about African Americans than me, I hardly meet any in Singapore. I love how you are trying to debunk stereotypes.
I take things very personally and have trouble dealing with criticism and rejection. I'm slowly trying to learn to overcome these things when I face them. I realise that I need to make time for myself, love and be kind to myself, because other people are not always able to provide me with what I need. So even if I'm faced with a situation where I feel hurt and misunderstood, I can try to take care of myself.
I am also quite an open book. But I often also numb myself to how I feel. If I'm upset it'll affect everything. Apparently some people can put emotions aside when say, they're at work and deal with them later, but I can't, it'll affect everything. I guess that is ok, being sensitive helps me be more in touch with myself.
I can't compromise my values. I just can't live with myself that way. I can't imagine not being a vegan, I think I would've done it sooner or later. I like standing out. Sometimes I get awkward though.
Eek some of the guys you've met sound really shallow, liking people based on their appearance. I don't really connect with those sorts of people, they're not the kind that I would attract into my friend circle. It would be nice to find a partner, I hope to eventually, but it is not my priority as the most important thing is for me to live well. For me, personality and values matter the most. With most people, I can be friends but for a relationship, it is an entirely different matter.
I thought you look pretty nice on your Fb profile. I was surprised you didn't think so. I think everyone has their own beauty. I don't care for looks, a person's character is what matters to me.
Let me know if you make an account on Wattpad, I'll check it out.
You do sound like an INFP. Well the NF types are pretty similar. I used to be borderline E/I but I think I have become quite extroverted over time VS very introverted when I was a kid. I briefly read up the enneagram types, I think I am a 4.
Your response means a lot to me. Talking to you always makes me smile :) It's always nice to have someone to relate to. I am glad you see me as being an INFP and that you previously identified as one yourself.
I first learned about the Myers-Briggs test in my early teens and learning about the INFP type clarified a lot of things for me. While some people saw me as being an ISFP and others who didn't know me well mistook me for being an a INFJ, I felt I was too dreamy and had my head too high up in the clouds to resemble an earthy ISFP, who are much more down-to-earth and sensual, whereas I am neither as decisive, focused, or driven as an INFJ.
I also noticed that INFJs tend to be thoughtful and caring people, but have a harder outer shell and seem more serious and less approachable from a distance, whereas INFPs have a softness and childlike energy, as well as an innate curiosity about them that I find appealing. For instance, many people believe Kyle Broflovski is an INFJ, and I personally can't relate to well to his character since I can't match up to his intensity. ISFPs are also very kind and compassionate, but tend to prefer more practical pursuits and to experience and enjoy the moment for what it is. They don't analyze things as much as INFPs do and are generally quiet, sensitive souls who live in the present. I believe Stan Marsh is an ISFP, most likely, while Butters is an INFP stereotype.
I like ENFPs as well because they are similar to me, which can make me connect with them more easily. I love their enthusiasm for life and playful optimism. You also shouldn't worry about being too sensitive or emotional, as those are common traits of both INFPs and ENFPs, as well as NFs in general. There is nothing wrong with you. You probably just tend to feel and process things more deeply than most, as do I. The fear of rejection is also pretty common and normal, but you have to realize that for every person who doesn't like you, they will always be at least one person who will accept and appreciate you just the way you are.
You are right as well in saying that perhaps many of the guys I have met have been rather shallow. I tended to almost exclusively become attracted to guys who were around my age or slightly younger, and many of them lacked the maturity level to be in a committed relationship. A lot of the guys I met could possibly have been superificial because they were primarily focused on just finding a pretty girl to have a good time with and weren't focusing on the deeper attributes about a person that are more significant in a relationship, such as personality, shared values, and common interests.
Some people have actually advised me to seek out guys who are a little bit older, perhaps in their 30s, if I do want male companionship, as these types of men tend to be more grounded and level-headed and aren't as shallow. It's also best to seek out a relationship from personal experience when you are financially independent and emotionally mature enough to handle the responsibilities of being with someone as well, as the best types of relationships in my opinion are those where both people are mutually supporting and helping one another and know which direction they want in life. I am sure you will meet the right person when the time is right and that you shouldn't be so hard on yourself.
I am thinking of creating a Wattpad account soon and publishing my stories there. I will let you know when I do and send you the link to it. I also wouldn't mind making Tyna a vegan either. I actually became more interested in the topic of veganism from watching South Park after observing Heidi and Stan's characters, as well as from talking to you. By the way, what do you think Scott Malkinson's MBTI type is? I know he is fictional, but he is an interesting character to me and was wondering what your opinion on him was. I personally think he is a socially awkward ENFP, because he seems to like receiving attention and gains energy from being around others, but is also known to be sensitive and rather misunderstood. He also seems like the type of person who loves to stand out and engage with new people. What do you think?
It's always a pleasure talking to you :) I hope to hear more from you soon. I am also glad you liked my Facebook profile picture. I thought you looked rather nice in your profile images yourself.
Sorry for the late reply! It's nice that you think I look nice too.
It is interesting to think of Scott Malkinson as a socially awkward ENFP. Reminds me of being very socially awkward when I was young, but I was a lot more introverted than I am now.
Based on your descriptions of ISFPs and NFs, I am definitely more of an NF. I am very sensitive and can analyse things, I'm free spirited and get idealistic. Being sensitive is part of my emotional makeup. On the good side, it makes me more in touch with myself and my values and empathetic towards others.
I guess because of my personality I meet people who are genuine rather than shallow. Age doesn't always matter. I know young people and teens who are great authentic people. I can't imagine myself dating someone in their 30s. Being in a relationship can happen when you are young too, it was the case for me, you just have to be practical about things and consider the consequences. And always, always respect yourself and the other person.
Look forward to seeing your Wattpad account. It'll be wonderful to have Tyna as a vegan, she could be vegetarian first then vegan, like me. It broke my heart that there is so much cruelty and death to obtain milk and eggs as well. Female cows are forcibly impregnated, have their babies taken away from them, and males are slaughtered for veal or bred for slaughter, females are subject to their mothers' fates, and when a cow is no longer productive she is slaughtered at a fraction of her natural lifespan. Chickens are crammed into tiny spaces and overfed and they get lots of health problems, male chicks are crushed or ground to death by the hundreds. I didn't want to know when I was vegetarian, as it was the best I could do then as I was young. I went vegetarian at 15 and vegan at 22. Since you're interested I'm saying it here, I get afraid people get put off about me talking about it. I feel so free as a vegan because I know that I am doing my best and not supporting the death and suffering of other living beings. I love food and I don't feel that I am missing out at all.
I created a new Wattpad account yesterday where I published several of the stories and character descriptions I have created so far. If you want to find me, type in girl-with-no-job and look for a story called “entwined” so that you can find them. There are a total of 66 characters, and the first one on the list is Mia, who is titled “Amelia Jo Beatrice ‘Mia’ Carmichael”, since that is her full name. I hope you take the time to read them sometime :)
I will respond to what you sent me yesterday more thoroughly once I get the chance. Your ideas on veganism do sound very interesting to me. I also left 2 new replies to you on my “OC Characters, Part 4” thread with my story about Hannah if you want to look at them.
Let me know if you were able to find my Wattpad and get access to it whenever you can. I look forward to your feedback. I will also make those changes and adjustments to Tyna’s character when I can.
Ok cool I found and followed your profile on Wattpad, I'll read the stories over time. Wow 66 characters is a lot! Is your profile gonna be these character descriptions or you'll have stories as well?
That is pretty cool you can make Tyna a vegan :D So sweet of u! Yeah, I could not bear to eat meat when it dawned on me that every time I had meat, an animal lost their life. What more the kind of horrors and misery they endure in factory farms? I also found out about the environmental issues and health benefits. If more people can eat more plant-based, it will really help our planet and humanity a lot.
Sorry for the late reply to this message, Wong Si. I’ve been trying to get back to you, but didn’t quite know how to respond. I find it very honorable that you decided to transition from vegetarianism to veganism and find it disheartening that so many animals have been tortured for the sake of feeding mankind.
I once had a conversation with someone who told me that she felt no guilt over the consumption of animals, as it was part of the natural chain of life and that inevitably, humans would nourish themselves through eating the less developed, more powerless species. Then again, I believe this can also be said about any powerful animal in general- those on top with often prey on the more vulnerable and feeble species and obtain their energy through these means, unfortunately.
I found your commentary on veganism to be very interesting however and consider it saddening that so much pain must be inflicted on the creatures that are placed on a lower level of the chain to feed and energize what could possibly be the most powerful animals on earth- Homo sapiens. I might consider trying vegetarianism in due time, but it will be a gradual process.
On a different note, I edited some of Hannah Bergman’s story and changed some of her hobbies on Wattpad to make them a better reflection of who I truly am and the type of people I usually seek companionship from. Her personality is still very much the same, but I made her a bit more artistic in terms of her interests rather than nerdy, as instead of being a “computer geek” as she was previously, she is a self-described “art nerd” who is deciding between becoming a graphic designer, multimedia artist, or interior decorator.
I also replaced her love of Naruto with a fondness for teen dramas like Degrassi and 13 Reasons why as a guilty pleasure (seeing as I was fond of these types of shows growing up myself). I feel this way, her hobbies will more align with Mia’s, seeing as Mia is a writer who has a creative streak of her own. The old Hannah’s interests seemed to be more along the lines of me wanting to project my own ideas of who I thought Scott Malkinson was onto my own character, so now I changed up some of her hobbies and made Hannah her own person (while still keeping her pretty much the same personality-wise). You can read through the changes if you want sometime :)
Also, did you ever finish reading Mia? I added some details to her character as well and made some small updates on her story. It’s always nice talking to you. I hope to hear more from you soon!
Hi! May I trouble you to help me add Syntech Hologram Company in Portal: Locations and the One-Off Locations: Portal? Thanks! I think there is something wrong with that page as so could you help me add it? I need to find out if you face the same problem too. Sorry for the trouble! Thanks a lot!
I managed to add it. There's no portal for One-off locations. Is it the issue where you have added an image to the gallery but when you click "Finish" the gallery just doesn't save? I get that problem sometimes. I may need to close and reopen the browser or try again the next time I switch on my computer. Another workaround is adding in the image in Source Editor if you know how to use it. It takes a bit of figuring out and you can look it up on Community Central.
Oh that'll be nice. Would you be online tomorrow around the same time as when you sent this just now? You can reply to this thread when you're online and I'll put my facebook profile here, when you've added me I'll delete my message since this wall is public. Putting it up for a while for you to find me should be fine.
Hello! I apologize for the late reply, as your messages towards me are always very interesting and make me think. I am glad to see that we are so like-minded and that you can relate so well towards me. I also enjoy attracting people with whom I can have meaningful connections too and highly value sincerity and openness in others, although I will admit that I did have a habit of pursuing one-sided friendships where I was giving more than I was receiving due to having gravitated towards the wrong people. I do believe having common ground is one of the most important parts of a connection with someone and that I could have struggled to make friends in part due to my shyness combined with my trying to force myself into social groups I didn’t quite fit into or belong in.
It is interesting that you described that you work behind the screens as an animator or creative professional. You career sounds very fun and it really does remind me of the job I mentioned Cason had in my fanfic :) I always wanted to create a web comic of my own eventually based on the many characters that I have created based on some of my life experiences, although I wouldn’t mind writing a novel or series of short stories based off of them either. I realize becoming a writer or published author is very difficult however, which is why I haven’t pursued it as a full-time job, but rather a passion I enjoy on the side. Still, I am glad you followed your heart and are doing a job that makes you happy, which is likely why you seem to know so much about how South Park works behind the scenes.
I invest a lot of myself in every character I write and feel most of them reflect at least some part of who I am. Mia for instance was definitely me in a lot of ways, although I have become somewhat less guarded and shy over time. I would say she was very similar, if not identical to me, while I was growing up however. If anything, the best friend I wrote for Mia named Hannah Bergman is a more accurate reflection of the person I currently am- intelligent, openminded, and slightly playful, yet awkward and somewhat socially oblivious with a sweet demeanor and naturally quirky flair. While Hannah feels conflicted between standing out and blending in among others, she is a humble, honest unassuming person who is fiercely loyal to the few friends who do understand her and has a childlike energy and curiosity in seeing things. I feel this is me in a lot of ways too.
Like you, I also enjoy music of any genre as well, although I do tend to gravitate towards songs that have meaning behind them. Sometimes I will listen to an upbeat tune if the lyrics energize or inspire me, but I am not afraid of a slower song either. As I said in a different thread before, I am not a fan of most rap or hip-hop music, as I don’t like the content of some of the lyrics. I will give credit to metal music though and say some of the meaning behind it is deep and profound and speaks the truth about the world in a lot of ways.
I didn’t mean to say all of Western culture was bad necessarily. I do appreciate the liberalism of it and do identify with it a lot more than the conservativeness of Eastern culture, as you said, but simply wish American society wasn’t so competitive and materialistic at times. I think it depends on the region of the US you live in or visit in terms of how friendly people will be to you. Texans for instance are known for being very warm and open towards visitors and are much more engaging that someone for New York or Boston, who tend to be colder and more direct. Racism also depends on where you go as well, as it is not obvious or apparent everywhere you go. I myself have never directly experienced discrimination for being mixed race or Latina while in Texas, although I am sure there are some parts of the Deep South or Midwest where some prejudices might show more. I am only assuming this based upon recent events that have happened in the news, although that information itself may be biased.
I think above all, I fit in best in a place that allows me to be flexible and express myself creatively. I would also prefer to be surrounded by likeminded people too who understand me. I appreciate your kind words in the most recent South Park thread I posted on too regarding my opinion on Scott Malkinson as a best friend. I think you are a very kind and considerate person too based upon what I have heard from you and the way you express yourself when we talk :) I hope to hear more from you again soon!
It's so cool how we find people like minded to us online even if we struggle with that in real life. I'm glad to be friends with you, I feel like you're someone who needs a friend as you find it hard to fit in and relate to people. Common ground is really important. When I was young I also tried to join social groups that weren't right for me, I feel you man. Even now, I can get quite socially awkward at metal concerts. Even though we like the same music a lot of people are different and I don't fit in so well, I'm a bit of a loner, with some acquaintances I talk to a bit more.
I like music a lot too. I feel that metal music is quite often honest in depicting our fucked up world, without trying to gloss over and beautify things the way I feel pop music sometimes does. It is cathartic and relatable. I like feeling a bit rebellious as I was brought up as a "good girl" which also made me feel uncool and unpopular as a kid.
I think a lot of creative work is at the computer. You need the software to do all your stuff lol.
Would be interesting if you could write a fanfiction and post it somewhere and I can have a look at it. It's interesting how the characters reflect who you are at different stages. I have a childlike energy too.
Indeed the States vary so much in different places. It's good that you haven't really faced racism. It sucks to know people are so materialistic though. Anyway, hope to chat with you more on Facebook.
I’m really glad that you decided to be my friend. I usually connect well with people with cultural backgrounds that are different from my own l, as I have mentioned before, and it’s nice to meet someone from the different side of the world and still connect with them in a way. I admit that I was also kind of a loner back then by default rather than by choice, since my shyness kind of isolated me from my peers and made me easily misunderstood. I was referred to as all sorts of hurtful names, even “autistic” at one point by someone who didn’t understand the crippling effects of social anxiety. I have never been diagnosed as having Asperger’s or any form of autism however, nor have I had any symptoms of it beyond the social awkwardness, and always did very well academically, even being enrolled in advanced English courses when I was younger.
I will say that I am a huge procrastinator however and am easily distractible, which is certainly not a good thing. I was very OCD about my grades throughout elementary and middle school, as well as part of high school, yet by college, became a little laidback when it came to my study habits, which again, is not good. I still graduated though and am doing my master’s this fall, so I am guessing I am okay.
I found what you said in a different thread regarding your prefering edgy people over innocent ones like Scott and Butters interesting. I am guessing that music is a form of self-expression for you that allows you the freedom to feel and experience the emotions that might be restricted in a more conservative society, right? You seem like someone who is very colorful and prefers a liberal lifestyle that allows you to be more open and expressive. I can tell by the fact that you mention your creativity and love of being artistic so much, which are things I like in a person. I feel as though I am usually just attracted to people who are kindred spirits, in the sense of having similar qualities to my own due to it making it easier for me to connect with them. I value kindness in the people I meet most certainly, but also love idealistic people with a playful and childlike energy for friends too. I know this kind of contradicts some of what I said about my character Cason, though.
I was never very popular back then either and was kind of an art nerd, like I said before, who turned to her own imagination and different creative outlets as a means of escapism and self-expression. In fact, I’ve had more intense crushes even on fictional characters (that I usually age up, by the way) than real people in recent years due to my desire to craft the “perfect partner” for me in my head in a way. It’s much harder to gradually get to know someone in person, since a lot of the people I meet at my university are often very closed off and guarded, so imagining these characters and writing fan fictions allows me to somehow feel the form of human connection that I am lacking. I suppose that sounds weird, though.
A fun fact you might also want to know is that psychologically speaking, those who listen to metal music are said to be deeper and more intuitive, seeing as heavy metal is seen as being more complex than other genres of music. They are said to be more intelligent too due to their ability to grasp the abstract messages of the songs they listen to.
It is always nice to talk to you. I’m sorry for not replying to you sooner. I usually take my time in messaging people back as I think through what I want to say. I hope to hear more from you soon!
Hi. I’m sorry for not messaging you sooner. The reason my Facebook is not up is because I decided not to use it any more for now, due to it being too distracting for me and consuming a lot of my time. I do enjoy talking to you and was looking forward to what you were going to reply.
I’m actually sorry myself if I ever made you feel uncomfortable with the overly emotional content of my posts and messages towards you, as I know it was a lot of baggage to put on you. I suppose I am a very sensitive person and that you are right to an extent in that I do seem to take some things very personally and anticipate the worst at times due to my past. I have an intense fear of rejection and always assume I will unintentionally bother people by being myself or sharing parts of who I am. I know it’s not right and I do want to change this aspect of myself. I am currently working on that however and am trying to improve.
I felt the reason I opened up so quickly to you was because I tend to trust and open up to people rather easily, which in turn can make me feel kind of vulnerable and exposed. I also worry about coming on too strong to others since I want to offer so much love to people, yet don’t realize that everybody works in a different way and people have their boundaries. I think most of that just comes from my being lonely for so many years and feeling happy whenever I feel so much of a connection with someone.
I also apologize about the comment regarding feeling jealous of Sophie Gray. I know that she is fictional, but that you like her very much as a character, so I respect that. I also know I shouldn’t compare myself or envy people who are not even real. I feel Sophie just reminds me of the type of girls I always wished I could be and tried to emulate, but could never be. I hope I didn’t weird you out by obsessing over Scott Malkinson too much as well. I understand that neither he or Sophie exist and feel like I just project a lot of who I am onto certain characters that I like, which can make me become emotionally attached to them. Scott is Scott though and I am me, so I can’t compare myself to him either.
Like I said though, I do enjoy talking to you and am not angry or mad at you. Ironically, I was the one who felt as though I had made you uncomfortable in some way, and I am sorry if that was the case. I hope we can continue talking and messaging each other in some way and that you do respond to this. Sorry, once again.
I hope you are not mad at me and that you still want to be my friend.
Don't worry about it, I'm not mad at all and I'm not weirded out 😊 It's only normal to feel certain ways about characters. It's great you took the step to stop using Facebook for your welfare.
Will get back to you again with more of my thoughts and opinions when I can sit down and think through after work hours. Just wanna let you know I'm good 😊
I am not sure where to contact them, but I did give you links to the forum and wiki. It would be best for you to reach out to official South Park channels yourself if you wish to convey anything to Matt and Trey. I generally don't do things on behalf of other people. If you want you can also try messaging the official South Park social media pages and see if you get a reply.
Oh hey!!! I was about to go post on your wall actually. It's been nice meeting you here and chatting in Discussions. Do you live in Oklahoma, USA? How old are you? Also my birthday is 17 June 6 days after yours.
