OKAY GUYS I HAVE SOMETHING THAT HAS ME FIRED UP. It’s not emotional I just need advice. Nothing serious.

So, me and my friends are having an argument... about uno. Every time I have played in my entire life, with classmates, with neighbors, with peers, with friends, with family and so on, weve always played it so that whoever gets to uno first WINS. I have never had to explain or got into an argument about it. Everybody at school, and my friends and pretty much everyone plays it that way. You win at uno when you have one card, but you can keep playing till 0 to determine the other place winners.

Until twelve years into my life, I have 2 friends who think otherwise. We are about to play iMessage crazy 8. My one friend has never played before. She says “what’s the difference between crazy eight and uno”. I say “uno you win at one, crazy eight you win at 0.” Suddenly my friends start text screaming at me. They say no, in uno, you win at 0 cards. UNO AND CRAZY EIGHT ARE THE EXACT SAME THING! they say. I DISAGREE HOWEVER and I literally pull up a screenshot of the official uno rules where it says, I will insert a quote now: “
The Official Uno Rules states that after a card is drawn the player can discard it if it is a match, or if not, play passes on to the next player. The other type is where players continue to draw cards until they have a match, even if it is 10 times. The game continues until a player has one card left.
They continue to say the uno creators must be wrong. you have to admit, that’s kind of a weak argument. I’m obviously winning this argument, but they continue to keep text yelling. Now I’m startinf to doubt myself.

If they are right, does this mean all the people I’ve ever played uno with have all coincidentally played it the way I have been playing it?
How do you guys play uno? No arguments please, I just want to know. My two friends are the first people I’ve ever met in my entire life that play uno this way (this way being the winner must have 0 cards left. You just yell uno for fun, and it has no significance towards the game)

The only way I’ve ever played uno was first to 0 cards wins. You say “uno” and if you don’t say it before someone else says it then you have to draw cards. That’s how everyone else I know plays it as well.

That’s cool. I think it might just be that, maybe it just kind of depends on where you live. After looking into the topic more, I realized here are just different groups of people who do it different ways. In my old school and neighborhood, my classmates and friends played it the “first to uno” wins way. I remember when I used to play uno all recess with my friends. But, once I moved, I’m seeing more people play it to zero to win. I think all in all more people play it your way, although I know another group of friends in Maryland play it my way. I guess it all depends.

All in all we’re still playing the same way, it’s just the timing of saying zero is different lol.

Heh, haven’t played uno in years. But from what I remember it’s first to one. Gl with your friends.

Ugh I'm too lazy to upload all the screenshots but
There was this content creator who posted this IG story that I interpreted as "demeaning towards another artist", but she wasn't usually one to do that, so I triple checked her wording, checked the artist she shared the post from, made sure I had all the context, and I still read it negatively.
So I sent a private message to her, and as politely as possible, told her that I interpreted it as such, sorry if I misunderstood, but if I misunderstood, then perhaps others will also misunderstand the way I did.
And then the creator replied: "I think you misunderstood me. Read my post again. Read hers too." (Which for the record had no caption) "You completely missed the point" (and then some I'm too lazy to type) "...because I don't wanna receive anymore judgemental DMs and comments like this"
nd I'm like,,,,,, ???????
How does apologizing for possibly misunderstanding in advance, pointing out that if I misunderstood than others might too, and saying "...(this post) might impact them negatively, but I don't think that's your intention" qualify as "judgemental DM(s) and comments"??
I mean Idk she probably puts up with a lot of trolls and sure it's ok to be a bitch sometimes cause there really are people out there who attack ppl in the public eye maliciously over inconspicuous things but like,,,,, did she even read a word of what I sent,,,,, I was apologizing profusely throughout the whole message I sent her and honestly she probably just copy/pasted that to every single message she got about the story but
If she didn't
What a Bitch :)))))) and tbh even if she did (copy/paste without reading) she deleted the original and posted a super passive aggressive follow up but like... Lady u gotta take at least partial blame if a there was a significant enough amount of people misunderstanding u that u had to delete the post????? Probably also not the best way to word things
Also if u guys wanna give her the benefit of doubt (I mean I'm venting from my pov) I can send the screenshots to u via Google hangouts

heeyyyy here to vent again lol
I feel really lonely sometimes. I've never been a really social person- I've never been good at socializing and it was either being aggressively social to make up for being lonely inside or making zero effort to fit in into a group because I know I'll either be disappointed by who they really are as I get to know them, or I'll fail and feel bad, so as a coping mechanism I don't try altogether.
This has been a problem since I was very young though I only started to recognize it in the past 3 years or so. Over the course of my younger life I was very very lucky to have some friends that were literally ride or die with me, so I didn't care that I was often never really well liked by everyone else.
Besides this, my attitude towards friends and non-friends are drastically different. Of course everyone's nicer to their friends, but for me it borders on aggressive and rude towards non friends. (I've been trying to be less of a Bitch™ so it's a bit better now, but still, this used to be a bigger problem.)
Problem is, since I retook year 11 because of my depression, all my friends are in year 12 and studying for their college entrance exams. Literally every single person. The only people I know from grade 11 are the people in my class right now and some from band, and I don't really know my classmates all that well at the moment (I restarted school in October as opposed to September, and missed that window of getting to know everyone else & friendships forming stuff)
so yeah... Not a lot if stuff to look forward to in day to day life besides when my friends finally finish their tests and I can go out with them again (the day cannot come sooner) and of course spending time with my boyfriend.
It's not that my boyfriend isn't enough or anything, it's that I miss the people in close to and the loneliness mainly stems from that.
Of course there's this sub problem of me being terrible at making friends and needing at LEAST like 6 months before I warm up to someone (this varies, but generally for acquaintances it's that; with some people I guess we just hit it off bc our personalities r compatible or something? And I warm up much quicker to those ppl but obviously there's not going to be someone like that in every group of people I meet... They're gonna be far and few tbh.)
Also since Kp is pretty dormant nowadays I just log on, check to see if anyone's replied, nope, then log off feeling Idk, empty?
