    Just wanted suggestions really so my bf birthday is still ages away and as u some know my parents don’t like him as ” we don’t know his family” as we both live in different cities. Anyways i really wanna go for his birthday party as it is his 21st and last year my parents didn’t let me go, nor the year before any suggestions?

    Mood : Confused
    • @positivity-vibes could I ask how old are you? if you’re 18+ your parents can’t exactly tell you what to do. If it’s an innocent party (aka not everyone getting drunk and such) I see no harm in going. You should support your partner. Best of luck <3

    • I’m 20 but the thing is in my family as we come from an asian background they aren’t open with dating and p.s i have been with him for 3 years but they don’t want to know him either

    • I would go to your boyfriend’s party and enjoy yourself @positivity-vibes, hopefully your parents will come to accept him if they get to meet him and talk to him, remember to keep on building your relationship and making it stronger as each day passes, try to stay positive and keep going, I’m always here if you need to chat or vent, inbox me…[Read more]

    For every woman that has sadly been submitted to physical and emotional abuse, don’t find excuses to let the relationship keep going. I’ve been there and I made sure things ended. I still have emotional scars that affect my current relationship so PLEASE stop enabling your own bully and abusive partner. Focous on YOU. Your future. Cause if…[Read more]

    • No one deserves to be in an abusive relationship @marikofujimoto, you are so right Mariko, we all need someone in our lives who will treat us right and give us love, keep spreading wise advice that helps others sweetie, I’m always here for you Mariko, stay strong, you are never alone, inbox me anytime if you want to chat :) <3 (hugs)

    • @oliver I agree. I also forgot to mention the same applies to men aswell. So no matter who you are, you deserve much better

    And I swear to god if I get any hurtfull comments like it has been happening on my posts when I’m this hurt, it won’t end up well. Save your sassy side somewhere else. I’m hurting.

    • @marikofujimoto I’m sorry you’re hurting, have people been harassing you on here? I haven’t seen problems really other than on the anonymous chat, but I haven’t been around too long either

    • Don’t let anyone be horrible to you @marikofujimoto, I want to see you being treated with love, kindness, care and respect on this site Mariko, please know the Blah community will always be here for you and so will I, you are a much valued member of this community sweetie, feel free to inbox me anytime if you want to chat, stay strong, you are…[Read more]

    • Why has my post been copied and pasted here @marikofujimoto and @tanisha, just curious :)

    • Well I am on this site to help others and make them smile @tanisha, I reply to just about everyone because I truly want to support the members of the Blah community, users do PM me, they can always message me as my inbox will be open to anyone if they ever need to talk :) (hugs)

    • @tanisha I suggest you to understand the conncept of the blah community. There have been things going on that I haven’t liked, but what happened on this post is absolutly ridiculous and childish. Oliver genuinly helped me ALOT during years. For you might be a chance to be a smartass with your sarcasm, but Oliver helped alot of people before you…[Read more]

    • @tanisha I forgot of a sidenote: if you want more positive people to help you, then go find others to help. No one is forcing you to talk to Oliver. He takes time of his day to reply and leave kind messages that don’t hurt anyone. However you use your words as you please without thinking twice. Once again, think what blahtherapy truly is.

    • You have pegged me wrong, @marikofujimoto. I m just trying to understand Oli and see if he wants to talk or not. I am not being sarcastic, and I am not knocking him down. You can read his updates yourself. I am a bit surprised that honest conversation is not accepted or welcomed by you on the forum.

      I do know that part of listening is giving…[Read more]

    I just ate a bunch of lasagna cause I completly lost control of my emotions. I was so happy and relaxed and proud of drawing. Wasn’t perfect but I was enjoying it. I genuinly hate living in this family. You have hopes? Dreams? Passions? haha what a big joke you are. No wonder I’m so fucking depressed and have anxiety blowing up the roof.

    • Don’t let your family be horrible to you @marikofujimoto, make all your dreams come true and always believe in yourself, you are talented Mariko, keep drawing, writing and do what makes you happy sweetie, smile and remember you have wonderful abilities hun, try to stay positive and surround yourself with brightness Mariko, you can do it, I’m…[Read more]

    When I try to draw and my mum says ”we aren’t born all for the same thing” and ”you know I’m used to your sister’s professional drawings”. Well NO SHIT, I’m just learning how to sketch and tbh I think I didn’t do too bad! Why do people shut me down? Shit.

    Mood : Angry
    • Your family really should give you all the support, love and encouragement in the world @marikofujimoto, keep drawing and writing poetry sweetie, don’t let anyone bring you down, follow your dreams and always believe in yourself, please know that the Blah community is so proud of you hun and so am I Mariko, smile and never give up, you can do it,…[Read more]

    I’ve been depressed and crying for hours.
    Sometimes I hate technology, my whole family is addicted. There’s no conversation, no people reading or writing or even walking outside. I hate this. I hope when I enter uni this year I can find a room there. So done.

    • Please don’t feel upset @marikofujimoto, your family really should try to bond and talk with you so you feel closer to them Mariko, do go outside yourself when you need too sweetie and don’t isolate yourself, try to stay positive and fill your day with brightness, find activities to make you smile hun, you can do it, I’m always here if you need…[Read more]

    • I agree, people are changing with technology so much.
      I’m so sorry you’ve been depressed and crying, I really hope you can feel better real soon and things will work out. :( ♥♥♥

    • @mariko I hope you do. Technology pisses me off a lot, too. Sorry you have to be dealing with that, people don’t seem to realize how they’re often making others feel unappreciated and ignored and it’s pretty inconsiderate and not fair to you

    • @princepossum and @invincible I thought I was weird for being so young and thinking this way. Makes me happy seeing more young people thinking the same.Thanks guys. Also @oliver thank you for your kind support :)

    I also need help finding some PDF files to get me started in chinese (mandarim) to just have a look at what I’ll be learning in july

    • I’m sure you will find great language resources online and as time goes on, you will become fluent in Chinese @marikofujimoto, hope everything goes amazingly for you Mariko, follow your dreams and never give up, you can do it, I’m always here for you sweetie :) <3 (hugs)

    • http://www.chinesebasics.info/

      No PDFs yet, but the site above may help. I found ! have to listen to the language a lot before my ear can begin to pick up the individual sounds. At first it just sounds like gibberish noise. Language is an amazing thing.

    • You should download apps which will help you with that. Since you can’t really get a hang of pinyin and hanzi just by reading them. You actually need to listen to know the difference. There are many apps which help you with that.

    Does anyone here draws as a hobby? I want to start drawing to relieve my anxiety and stress. However the pros here at home are busy so I need some guiding. So does anyone have tips or maybe websites with tuturials?

    • I’m sure you will find sites or resources to help you with drawing and art @marikofujimoto, I’m sure you will create wonderful pieces Mariko, I managed to find this – http://thevirtualinstructor.com – hope it helps you sweetie, have a fabulous day hun, I’m always here for you Mariko :) <3 (hugs)

    • @oliver thank you so much oli :)

    • I don’t know man, I’m a natural drawer haha. If you have art class/club in school, just pay extra attention in class and ask your classmates for help/tips. If I need tutorials, YouTube is my go-to website. Also, if you don’t mind, I’d like to have a look at some of your art. :P

    • @marikofujimoto I love to draw! The main thing I tell everyone is practice practice practice. I would say find something that really inspires or interests you as your topic, and make it a reference. You may not want to do realistic stuff, but either way, having references will help you a lot, to use as guidelines, so you can check where you’re on…[Read more]

    • @princepossum what about dimension (shades , etc) ? Will it come naturally by practising?
      My sister and dad are natural at this and they do it like is nothing, but my talent is writing, not drawing. So I’m literally starting from scratch and have some doubs.
      Also does drawing help you with anxiety? I was hoping would be a good thing for it

    • @marikofujimoto Those are good questions.. honestly I think it depends on the person, with art some things come naturally and some things don’t. I love colors but I have a difficult time with color palettes, but I am really good with shadows and textures in black and white because my mind is good at guessing what things look like in 3D. If it…[Read more]

    So I’ve been talking with some sister’s friends. And being 22 I never thought I would get along with 14 year old teens tbh, only because I thought they wouldn’t trust me. However is the complete opposite!! They text me everyday to enter a call and play games with them, and as soon as I enter the call they’re incredibly happy to see me around.…[Read more]

    Why THE FUCK is Portugal so hot?? is like a vulcano got in action… 29 degrees??? is just may!
    I hate the hot weather so much, my skin just explodes and I feel sick :(

    • 29 degrees is hot, really?

    • If it is humid, it is hot. We have a dry heat on the prairies, not to be confused with dry heaves, which is definitely not hot.

    • Also, I checked. It shouldn’t be that hot: http://www.weatheronline.co.uk/reports/climate/Portugal.htm
      Maybe it is climate change. Or maybe someone has pointed a big mirror at you all for some nefarious reason that the government is being quiet about. Do you live in the city? Cities are often heat sinks because of the amount of concrete and…[Read more]

    • @natalie-geroux its in celcius

    • @tanisha no, close to a beach and is still boiling hot. Is typical of Portugal but my body can’t handle this heat

    • What is the ocean like? Would it cool you off? Could you just walk into the ocean? I would love to live near a beach someday. I would walk into the ocean if I was boiling, unless there were ice bergs in said ocean, then I would just goof around in the sand, and longingly look at the ocean. I would take a big beach umbrella so the sun wasn’t…[Read more]

    • Yea, I figured that out. I guess 29 isn’t that hot for me since I am a sucker for summers at the beach. All the nice ice creams and chilled cocktails. And lazy days by the pool. Damn, I miss home.

    • Do stay cool and take care of yourself @marikofujimoto, it’s mostly sunny and mild here in the UK, hope you are having a great day sweetie, I’m always here for you Mariko :) <3 (hugs)
