But it’s usually right near all the other soaps and her loofah, so I think it’s probably something she actually uses while under the water.” “I really don’t know how it all works,” Ferris added. “All I know is that in between Sarah getting into the shower and getting out, there’s a rock involved.” Ferris, who said he was unable to determine exactly when in the showering process the rock first comes into play, told reporters he is equally clueless about what part of the body the rock is used on. In addition, Ferris said he occasionally inspects the roughly 3-ounce object when he’s in Milstein’s shower, and told reporters that the rock is nearly always wet and is occasionally moved to slightly different spots within the bathtub, leading him to believe that his girlfriend uses it fairly regularly. He also noted his girlfriend’s bathing time never seems particularly longer than the average person’s considering she has added a rock into the mix. Ferris added that all attempts to incorporate the rock into his own shower routine have ultimately been unsuccessful. “I tried rubbing it on my skin once, and it hurt,” Ferris said, concluding that pouring soap and water directly onto the rock neither made it softer nor easier on his skin. “I could maybe see how it could get some dirt off of your body, but it seems too painful to work. Her skin usually looks nice though, so maybe I’m wrong.” “There is a chance it could be a hair thing,” Ferris continued. “Maybe she rubs the rock in her hair? I don’t know.” Ferris confirmed he has considered numerous reasons for why his girlfriend uses the rock in the shower, including that she has some type of skin condition, that the rock is some sort of weird tradition her family has, or that everyone uses rocks in the shower and he has been out of the loop the entire time. “It could be for cleaning the bathtub,” said Ferris, adding he once suspected the rock was a device for making the bathroom smell nice, but then noticed it had no discernible smell whatsoever. “Like every few weekends she scrubs the tub with this rock? I guess I could see Sarah doing that.” While Ferris said he is mostly certain that the rock was initially purchased at a home goods store of some kind, he was not able to completely rule out the possibility it was just a rock that his girlfriend found on the ground and decided to put in her shower. “I wonder if I should put a rock in my shower for when she’s over here,” said Ferris, who said he once tried to locate a rock at a Bed Bath Beyond, but left after not wanting to walk up to a sales clerk and ask them where they kept their “shower rocks.” “Or I could just tell her to leave a rock at my place if she wants.” “I’m probably not going to do that,” Ferris added. At press time, a visibly perplexed Ferris had seen the rock sitting in Milstein’s trashcan and then looked in the shower to see another rock sitting in its place.

Rock Apparently Factors Into Girlfriend’s Shower Routine
SEATTLE—Saying he was confused about the full extent of its purpose as well as its overall benefit, local man Jacob Ferris, 25, nonetheless surmised today that the oblong rock located in girlfriend Sarah Milstein’s shower caddy must somehow factor into her bathing routine, sources confirmed.
“I guess at some point while she’s showering, she rubs a rock on her body,” said Ferris, expressing what he claimed was “the only possible conclusion” about the light-gray rock in his girlfriend’s bathroom. “I mean, it looks sort of nice, so she could just have it there for decoration or something. But it’s usually right near all the other soaps and her loofah, so I think it’s probably something she actually uses while under the water.”

If l post something and don't say it's in some level of a finished form or hey let me know what you think, probably best to assume I'm not looking for your red pen insight in my inbox. literally like, I got my first comment on a fic a while back that wasn't just keysmashing or compliments or wtv, it was literally just advice, but it hit me like a sack of bricks to the face and lost the will to continue the fic I was working on when I read that comment my mood plummeted off a cliff in the span of a couple sentences. This is pretty Rich actually, because l have had my life destroyed by online Critics on stories I just posted for fun Thank you, Kedreeva. This is also how I feel when my partner tries to give me concrit on my Overwatch game play. I didn't ask you for concrit. Please leave me alone. You're ruining my fun thing by turning it into homework. Unsolicited concrit is entitled wank #honestly keep it to your damn selves # constructive criticism is a huge part of why I don't fucking write anymore ck off with that shit #I've seen too many writers give up tAnd stop writing few a ss holes who thought they needed to tell these people that they didn't like their story for some reason #1m sometimes still thinking about that one Concrit comment I got years ago #important #fanfiction #writing #criticism #that's one of the reasons I never write sterek again #whereas with my writing?

This isn’t even all of them, this is just from a FEW posts on the subject. Read through these, and then look me in the eyes and say you’re ~helping writers~ by leaving that criticizing comment on someone’s fic when they didn’t ask you to. You’re hurting or, at best, annoying us. You’re hurting fandom. You’re not helping us.

 I have peopleI take my
 work to for critique. Serious
 critique. I want that
 criticism, and to be better. If
 l post something and don't
 say it's in some level of a
 finished form or hey let me
 know what you think,
 probably best to assume
 I'm not looking for your red
 pen insight in my inbox.
 literally like, I got my first
 comment on a fic a while
 back that wasn't just
 keysmashing or
 compliments or wtv, it was
 literally just advice, but it hit
 me like a sack of bricks to
 the face and lost the will to
 continue the fic I was
 working on when I read that
 comment my mood
 plummeted off a cliff in the
 span of a couple
 sentences.
 This is pretty Rich
 actually, because l have
 had my life destroyed by
 online Critics on stories I
 just posted for fun
 Thank you, Kedreeva. This
 is also how I feel when my
 partner tries to give me
 concrit on my Overwatch
 game play. I didn't ask you
 for concrit. Please leave
 me alone. You're ruining my
 fun thing by turning it into
 homework.
 Unsolicited concrit is
 entitled wank
 #honestly keep it to your damn selves
 # constructive criticism is a huge part of why I don't fucking write anymore
 ck off with that shit
 #I've seen too many writers give up
 tAnd stop writing
 few a
 ss holes who thought they needed to tell these
 people that they didn't like their story for some reason
 #1m sometimes still thinking about that one Concrit comment I got years
 ago
 #important #fanfiction #writing #criticism
 #that's one of the reasons I never write sterek again
 #whereas with my writing? Dont -please
 #even if y
 #1m going to remember the one inconsequential bad thing
 #AT MOST you can point out like a spelling error or two
 #but honestly don't bother if I missed them on the proof then I probably
 don't care enough to edit it again
 ou leave the nicest comme
 nt otherwis
 NOW
 #as someone who writes
 #i hate hate hate concrit on works that are posted unless I've specifically asked for
 more
 bad that im s
 ometimes way too much of a wimp when it comes to
 concrit
 #Tbh I'm very wary of criticism
 #I've had most people do it in a way that negatively affected the way I see
 my work
 #Asking first is a wonderful way to go about it!

When I say “writers don’t want your unsolicited criticism” and “leaving unsolicited criticism on fanfiction hurts writers” THIS is what I mean.
This isn’t even all of them, this is just from a FEW posts on the subject. Read through these, and then look me in the eyes and say you’re ~helping writers~ by leaving that criticizing comment on someone’s fic when they didn’t ask you to.
You’re hurting or, at best, annoying us. You’re hurting fandom.


You’re not helping us.

 Fun story my history teacher told us: his
 grandfather during the industrial revolution
 walked past a flyer which said "looking for
 smart strong boys" so he went into the
 factory, said "i'm strong and smart", and he
 had that job from age 13 to 78
 kaiitea
 and this is why they expect the younger
 generation to simply "get a job" ahh it's so
 much clearer now

Ass, Bitch, and Crazy: One time I was playing the sims and I wanted to make me and mike but l wanted to make us separately and have us meet. But when I moved into my house, I had this sexy ass neighbor. I figured I could have a fling with him and break it off and get with Mike later but then the neighbors kid got attached to me and I couldn't just end it when I was so close to his daughter. I really cared about him too. So the only thing I could do was have it end in tragedy. That way I wouldn't have to break up with the guy and I could adopt his daughter to stay close to her. He passed away peacefully on fire in the kitchen. Now in previous games, when a kid is taken away by CPS, the next kid you adopt is the same kid. Welp that didn't carry over into sims 4 so the daughter ended up being taken away and erased from the game by the great sims deity. l'm a sentimental man, so l kept neighbor mans tombstone around. I'd occasionally chat with his ghost, but he seemed cold to me. I can't help but thinking he was a bit mad his daughter no longer existed. But this escalated once I started seeing Mike. His ethereal visits became more frequent and more hostile, usually breaking my electronics or creating a mess. But he went overboard when he started the fire. Being a sim the died in a fire, his ghost had certain abilities specific to his death (setting fires). He got pissed because I kissed Mike so he set my couch on fire that ended up barricading us in the bedroom. Now l couldn't find the fire alarm in buy mode and I hadn't had the foresight to predict my spiteful ghost died-in a-fire ex boyfriend would be an afterlife arsonist to care about it that much so a lot of the house had burned by the time l could get the FD there. After having almost nothing covered by insurance (thanks Obama), Mike sat me down to have a talk with me. While l couldn't understand him, l imagine he said What the fuck you need to deal with your crazy ass ex boyfriend ghost. This never would have happened if you weren't a thirst little sim bitch and dated me first." I approached the grave. It was time to release him. He was waiting for me. He knew this was the end. That after this, there was no coming back from the afterlife. I know he tried to kill me, and he knows I got his daughter deleted, but at that moment, it was just like old times.
