I am FAR too annoyed by people spelling simple words wrong. Like, today, I saw someone spell the word "recent" as "resent". And then there's the constant misuse of "there", "their", and "they're". I don't know why, but that bothers me FAR beyond reason.

Exact conversation that just occurred:
(Note:I'm sweeping the living/dinning room while meg is doing the dinner prep dishes in the pantry)

Meg's Sister: (leaving her room) What are you doing?
Me: Sweeping, watch that pile.
Meg's Sister: I was beginning to think you never did anything around here.
(Walks away)

Bitch, please. I sweep most days before I leave for school, do dishes, clean the toilet and sink regularly, wash the bath tub once a week, vacuum the couch and just generally tidy up. Today I got home from school and started getting the trash ready to go out. On the other hand, I NEVER see you clean. Ever.

What? Does she think the place just magically cleans itself?

So far, the two biggest sites I've joined for voice acting require a yearly membership for a ton of money in order to even be viewed for possible work. THIS IS HIGHWAY ROBBERY! Where the hell is the little pee-on like me supposed to go to even GET work in this industry? Huh? Tell me that. Where do I go? Where can I go that doesn't try to bleed me for cash and not even offer guaranteed jobs? I HAVE NO FREAKIN' CLUE. I am poor, so anyone who starts up that pay-to-play crap can go *fill in the blank.* If I'm going to pay $300 a year, I'd better damned well be guaranteed multiple gigs.

EDITED: Behind The voice Actors is free, and wonderfully gives the little guy a chance. The projects are unpaid, but I don't care about that. I just want to audition and be cast. Whatever job I get (and I've already been cast for two) I have and will put 100% into the work. Give me a chance, and I'll deliver the best of my ability as it improves.

I am poor, so anyone who wants money from me to join their silly little con-artist site can go make friendly with a flock of sheep again, and again, and again. *growls.* If those sites had shins, I'd break them.
I'd be wary of websites that charge you for that.
'Back in the day' when my mother was encouraging me to get acting and modeling gigs she paid $40 for a membership to some website that has you upload your information and photographs as basically a portfolio website. Shady as hell man.

Exactly!

Also, If anyone is going to cast for their project, they need to look at the talent in the recording, and not if they'd paid, or if they have their own shiny home studio. If the talent is there, it won't matter what they use to record, or how much money they've forked over.
"It's a sad artist who blames his tools."

I audition using a headset mic wrapped in 2 nylon wig caps, and I've been accepted for two jobs so far. Sure, I know someone with a half decent mic set up for recording the jobs I have been cast for, but auditioning with the headset mic is my way of saying, "Are you listening to my delivery, or are you just concerned with the tech?"

Ah, ranting and raving thread. How I love you.

Late to the conversation but on the one work day a week thing, that was one of the things Target did to try to get me to quit. Many bosses don't like to actually fire people so they try to make work so unbearable that people quit. In the end, Target succeeded but they did pull a lot of other shit before I actually left.

My baby, he keeps bringing up the idea of me visiting him sometime in the next few weeks before he deports. I miss him a lot I know how hard it is for him to come down and visit me but I know it would be impossible to convince my parents to let me visit him. Let's just say mom wouldn't let me go with my birth-father to visit my grandma in Florida. It hurts me every time he brings it up.

Also my "friend" needs to stop trying to take care of everyone. If I want something done or said I will say it or ask someone to say it. They have gone around telling everyone my (old) gender identity with out even knowing if I want them to know! It nearly forced me out of the closet to my parents

Quick little rant- why must I mentally be so much older than any of my peers my same age? Because as far as romance goes, it causes me to like people several years older than me (17-18 year olds) and vice versa.
Of course, I'm really not opposed to age differences like that (as long as the connection is there and the younger of the two doesn't feel pressured or in danger [And as long as they are able to keep from getting in any kind of legal trouble, if your state has such laws], I see no problem), but it is incredibly frustrating to know I'll probably have little to no chance of ever having a normal, lovey, teenage relationship because of both my sexuality and mental age- everyone I'm interested in or is interested in me is either a girl or a few years older than me, which neither of my parents is okay with, which means secret relationships all the time and no going out on dates and such..which is kind of a bummer.

The idea you have of a 'normal teen relationship' isn't nearly as true as you've been lead to believe.

If it's any consolation I didn't date until I was 21 years old and have now been living together for over a year.

Things will work out in their own time. There is no 'normal' or some sort of goal you have to meet. I swear that you have way more time for stuff like that then you might think you do.

Learned today that I have an "F" in Language Arts. Oh well, screw priorities. If I passed my exams then I passed this school year anyway.

I got a phone call from a company about a position they thought I may be interested in, and they told me to go to their site and apply. After going through the long application and entering all my stuff...I can't submit it! Not only that, the upload resume thing didn't work so I had to enter it all by myself! WHAT THE F!?!?
