-modifying brand clothes, if I say this is because I just saw a post on egl
that made me cringe, I don't need to say names but, it really makes me sad. It's not only about lolita but brand/expensive clothing as a whole, I couldn't pay a lot for a skirt, just to pay again to get it tailored, most of the time just to get a skirt that doesn't have the right shape anymore. I know what I'm talking about here. If it's a normal piece and it's just a matter of 2 inches I'd say go for it, or if it's a brand item you found at a thrift store for 20 dollars or something but most of the times it's quite crazy. I don't fit in brand skirts, by just mere cms even, and I could do it myself, I trust my sewing skills, but taking apart a skirt just to get 4 cms more of room makes me want to cry D:
-adult people that are way too much in fandom (yes totally unrelated to the previous point xD). Now let me explain this one, I like fandom, it's such a funny place, however I'm fully aware that the moment I'm an adult life will be probably too busy to be in fandom 24/7, I'm not talking about just a job, after all it only takes 6-8 hours a day right? plus other things, the nights are for yourself; but, when you settle down, get married, have kids, taking care of things at home; it isn't just too hectic?
Not saying that you can't enjoy the things you like, you have time for yourself after all, just to check about your favorite series, or what your favorite band is doing, whatever; but some people even get the time to get obsessed (REALLY obsessed may I add) to fandom, posting secrets at fandomsecrets
and such (which really was what make me think of this seeing today's post) and such.
I've been around fandom for god knows how long, almost half of my life, I'm around almost all the time; and I'm also the type who will probably settle down way too late because I feel I need to do many things before that. I usually say things like I don't want to get married
or I doubt I'll have kids
but I know that eventually this things will come, at the rate the world is going I feel that when I have kids I'll be too worried thinking about raising them to be honest and caring persons to spend more than 2 hours in front of a PC. Probably, what makes me sad about these people aren't them, but their families. Even if I don't care about family as much as I should. Somehow, it makes me thing these people use fandom as a way of escapism. Once again, I may be looking into it too much xD
That's it xD on a side note, a test I found on the net some hours ago told me my mental age is 71. I'm such a granny xD go me~
