Just a small note

As a person who suffers from mental illness and suicidal thoughts, I really can't help taking it personal when someone calls a person stupid and judges them for committing suicide. They DIED FROM THEIR ILLNESS! You don't judge someone for dying from cancer. Don't be a dick, respect death regardless of cause.

Trolls are essential to the health of the internet

Having been a regular internet user for over 12 years, I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the world wide web.
  I have been on both sides of the trolling coin. Never to an extreme degree, but I have gave and received some light trolling in my time on the internet. I consider myself a student of internet culture. I have spent hours trawling around Encyclopedia Dramatica and rather enjoy reading about the elaborate trolling schemes towards the many LOLcows of the internet. It's one of my main sources of entertainment.
  Now I am not saying that trolls should be kept around purely for my amusement. I think they have a legitimate use in cyber culture. They are the teachers of the internet (kind of). Let me explain:
  Lets say you are a fresh faced 14 year old (much like I was when I first got internet in my home) let loose on the intertubes. Maybe you join Tumblr, DeviantArt, Gaiaonline,  or any number of online communities popular with the youth of the internet today. You are young, precocious, and naive to the dangers online. You fill out a profile on any or all of these social websites. In hopes to seem open to making new friends you share your name, phone number, email address, postal address, etc. You talk about your belief that deep down you are a fox/dragon hybrid. You post your MSpaint artwork of your "fursona". You find like-minded individuals. "Thank goodness!" you say "I thought I was the only one *tear rolls down cheek*".
  What a beautiful scenario. A young and insecure teen finds his/her place in this world, finally. A place where they can do no wrong. People embrace them with no prejudice. They are not judged on their spotty, gangly looks. There's no adults telling them what to do. This world of the internet is what they have been looking for all this time!
 But is that really such a good thing? A world with no consequences? I'm not talking about legal consequences, but social consequences. As social creatures, we need to learn how to act/not act around other human beings. The internet is a whole new social world, with different rules that we all need to learn. But how do we learn? Trolls!
 Lets go back to our 14 year old fox/dragon other-kin. They posted all over their chosen social network about their most personal thoughts and information. A wild troll appears! With minimal snooping he finds this child's vital statistics. Address, phone number, D.O.B., etc. A lot of things that are very unsavoury can be done with this information. Identity theft,  a paedophile could easily find you, stalkers... just to name a few.
 But what does the gentle troll do? Says a few nasty things that make you think twice about over-sharing every thought in your head. Maybe he'll make a few prank calls, send you a few pizzas, sign you up to "big cocks weekly" magazine. This will be very annoying and rather embarrassing, but at the end of the day what is the only real consequence of all this? You're parents ban you from the internet for a while and you learn an important lesson about posting personal information online. Trolls make better & safer netizens; and hey, if someone cannot learn from their mistakes, that's not the fault of the trolls and why not exploit the situation and have some fun while they're at it?

Me? Wearing a DRESS???

You might already know this, but I'm very much a jeans & t-shirt girl. I dont wear dresses or skirts unless it's a special occasion. Lately I thought I'd try to make an effort to change that. I found a really cute dress on sale in H&M and some leggings. Also did some online shopping for some leggings.

So here's my new casual dress look!

Ignore the derpiness of the pics. >.<
I really like it and it feels comfortable. There may still be hope for me yet. :)

Oh and here's the leggings I bought on ebay (still waiting on them arriving though)
