Hm...play video games, board games, go on a YouTube music spree, get her to ramble about something that happened to her (i.e. funniest/weirdest thing that's happen in the past year, her favorite new movie, etc.), discuss/debate favorite books and TV shows, play with her pets (if she has any, ESPECIALLY if they know tricks)....stuff like that. :D Also, if she/you would find it fun, mess with each other's hair. Braids, curlers...that sort of thing. ^_^

And you're NOT an idiot. O_O

Just keep the ball rolling, okay? Keep asking random questions to get her talking. That's what I find the most effective--small talk that gets the other person involved. :3 Their opinions on movies, books, celebrities, music, political/religious issues... (Just STAY AWAY from the weather. o_o That's too bland and inpersonal. You want them to feel good because they can say their opinion, BUT you don't want to interrogate them. XD Be sure to give YOUR opinions, too, or it makes them feel like you're grilling them.)

do i seem like a dumb computer addict? that's what my own mom thinks i am. she said that as long as im online, i'll be happy. but thats not true. she doesn't know that i get cyberbullied frequently and that i can do things other than go online. im stuck in india, where theres literally nothing to do. i hurt my foot so i cant go running, and i've already read every book in the house at least thrice. but despite all this, my mom still calls me a brainless weirdo who cant do anything except update her status online. no one si listening to me right now, which is why my life feels pointless. and my parents were actually arranging to put me in an asylum and make me cut school to see the psychologist, who is one of the meanest people i know. its ok if no one reads this; i've never been listened to anyways.

Psychologist?! Your parents need to go to one.
Life is not pointless.
You get cyberbullied? Link? I need to defend you.

No. You are NOT insane, nor a computer addict. Your mom cut a few brain cells it seems like, because a mom does NOT have the right to say that to her daughter. You need to talk to her.

That's bullshit. Don't listen to that. Go to the library. Bring a pad, a pencil, a computer, a library card, an iPod, and about ten bucks. Buy yourself a soda and a pack of skittles from the nearest store, then sit outside writing, or on KidPub, or listening to music, or reading. It calmed my life down when I figured out how to do that.

You are NOT a 'dumb computer addict'. If you are, then what are we all? You seem perfectly sane to me, and you shouldn't have to see the psychologist if you don't want to. They can't put you in an asylum just because they think you go on the computer too much. Don't let your parents get you down. Your mum shouldn't call you names, she should be there to help you. You are a great person, you're listened to on KidPub, and we'll be here for you.

Quote:

Etymology
"Bull", meaning nonsense, dates from the 17th century,[2] while the term "bullshit" has been used as early as 1915 in American slang,[3] and came into popular usage only during World War II. The word "bull" itself may have derived from the Old French boul meaning "fraud, deceit" (Oxford English Dictionary).[3] The term "horseshit" is a near synonym. Worthy of note is the South African English equivalent "bull dust". Few corresponding terms exist in other languages, with the significant exception of German Bockmist, literally "billy-goat shit".
Why do they take it so seriously? :p

DragonRider 06-20-2012 05:25 PM

My friend at school (well, I say friend...) started swearing at me. What she didn't realize was that a teacher was standing right behind her. I don't feel sorry for her getting in trouble. She called me a f***ing b**** etc.

TheAshWolf 06-20-2012 05:32 PM

Need to vent, feel free to ignore.
 
I'm not one for first-world-technology problems. O_e But this is serious.

My laptop's keyboard is malfunctioning. ;_; Several of they keys don't work. The light on the Caps Lock button isn't working right. And if I turn on Caps Lock on the broken keyboard OR my wireless one (which I'm using now), it types "I88888888888" and doesn't stop until I press it again. e___e

I can't type very fast on my wireless because I'm not used to it. The Backspace key is SUPER TINY. The Enter key is unreasonably big. AND I've never used the Shift key to capitalize. I always just tap the Caps Lock. x_x

Normally, I wouldn't care. But I NEED to write my book. It's one of my main lifelines. And I'm already under enough stress already. I don't need to worry about getting my keyboard fixed. x__x

*le end rant*

DragonRider 06-20-2012 05:36 PM

Um. Right. Um. *awkward glance* Take it to a computer repair shop to get it fixed?

TheAshWolf 06-20-2012 05:49 PM

cursing
 
e_e No, cursing won't cause an earthquake. It won't give you a horrible illness. But you know what? It's disruptive. It's disrespectful. It's severely immature. It promotes negative thinking. Using that kind of language in a public place/website is INCREDIBLY inconsiderate.

Do I ever curse? Yes, I do. It slips out when I get overemotional. I'm not perfect. But I AM trying to stop the habit. Because, in my opinion *points* cursing isn't acceptable behavior for anyone.

Do I care that you think I'm immature? You can't stop everyone.

cheezemziez 06-20-2012 05:53 PM

Did you see the poem on the Wikipedia page?

DragonRider 06-20-2012 05:54 PM

I swear a lot, mainly because I am surrounded by many people who swear, so I grow into the habit. I am trying to stop. I have a new method. If I think I might swear, I tell myself to imagine what the Doctor would say. And I don't like to disappoint the Doctor.

I'm not calling you immature. Nor am I trying to stop you. I'm just stating my opinion on the matter.

It would mean a lot to me (and a lot of other people on here) if people wouldn't use that kind of language.

ME, she wasn't calling people who swear immature. She's says that they sound immature and/or are being immature when they curse. Please, don't get so defensive when people are stating their opinion, because it's not always going to be directed towards you. I agree that she can't stop everyone, but that doesn't mean she can't try, and that certainly doesn't mean you need to be rude about it, which was how you sounded in your response. I consider what you just said immature, and that is my opinion, so snap if you want to, but that will not phase me. It will just prove my point. And please, don't take this the wrong way. I just have no tolerance for immaturity like that.
