  1. Yeah, as LisaDavis said, the pope can't really express personal opinion on a subject like this, and his word is considered the baseline from which all Catholic priests have to follow, though I'm absolutely sure that not all of them agree on this stance. While it is nice to hear, it's not super comforting. LGBT members have not only been mistreated in the past, but heavily mistreated in present day as well. It'd be a huge step forward if someone like Pope Francis would claim that the church should seek forgiveness for present conflicts and abuses, but that doesn't seem likely, unfortunately.
  2. I love rereading anything from A Song of Ice and Fire as well as A Series of Unfortunate Events; I really like jumping back into series with a lot of books because often they're pretty self contained conflicts or are just plain fun adventures I love to remember. I don't know why, but these are super re-readable and I'm always coming back to them! I also love to reread Pride and Prejudice, simply because it tickles my fancy in such a huge way. It's like the perfect rom-com, and so witty and fun! Absolutely love it.
  3. There's a bit of a misunderstanding here! Gaming isn't technically considered a sport in the physical sense, but an e-sport, aka competitive digital gaming. The wording is slight but the difference is pretty big, and mostly it being that sports are generally considered a physical activity, but honestly the ideas can blur sometimes. Occasionally chess and poker are considered a sport of sorts since they tend to be done physically, and some gaming requires a bit of physical fitness as well like with pinball machines (which require the user to stand up to use), games like DDR which require the user to "dance", and shooting games which have a heavy gun-shaped controller to play. Also, I would say it requires a lot to have the reflexes and timing involved in a lot of games to be a competitive player, such as FPS titles and racing games. Also sports aren't always good for your health! Those involved in football often suffer huge physical repercussions for playing, and ballet is notoriously brutal on dancer's bodies. I hope this cleared up the difference between e-sports, sports, and went over a bit on how the lines can blur!
  4. I love to draw! I was very into cartoons at a young age and continued to draw well into my teens as a hobby, though I've cooled off a lot on it recently. I don't think of it as anything but to just pass the time, but I really admire those who are really talented and have a true passion for it. Here are some headshots of a few character I had bouncing around recently - sorry it's nothing refined, I can't really find anything fully rendered that I still like right now, haha.
  5. I used to smoke a little bit in highschool, but I quickly realized it was lame and unpleasant and didn't really make you look any cooler. Speaking of lame things though, I'm a little interested in vaping. Seems silly, but looks sort of fun? I tried it a bit and the flavors were neat to try too. I still drink socially, but I'm not super into it otherwise! Although I suppose I wouldn't mind a bit of wine with dinner or something like that, nothing heavy. I'd definitely never drink alone, though.
  6. Man, that is exactly what happened. It was kinda sad, because back then we were really into Green Day and, if you will not judge too much lol, Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance and things like that. But honestly, I think I've discovered that I like listening to music much more than I like trying to make it, as fun as ukulele is to mess around with. But I appreciate your encouragement immensely, I'm really touched honestly and maybe, if the moment is right and the opportunity arises, I won't shy from it. <3
  7. I would probably say the beauty product I absolutely could not live without...would be BB Cream / Concealer / Foundation / Setting powder and everything else that goes into the skin routine! While I love eyeliner and blush and eyeshadow, I think the key to a done up face is in the base you make with your skin, so I'd probably die without all those. If I had to pick just one though, I'd say foundation is most important. I love makeup though, I'd be so sad without them all!
  8. Hi! Welcome to the forum Lane, I hope you'll have a great time here! So far the community has been very warm and kind, so I hope you'll have as good of an experience as I have so far. Feel free to ask any questions you have and again, welcome! Glad to have you~
  9. One of my best friends is majoring in Computer Science. I honestly say follow your dreams, since STEM fields are only just recently opening up for young girls learning to code and explore in those areas! It is still very male-dominated, but I think the only way to solve that problem is to just do what you love and do it well, nevermind what comments you'll get.
  10. I used to try to teach myself bass guitar with the dreams of starting a band with my friends, which we actually did try to do for a while! But after that sort of dissolved after a few jam sessions, I picked up ukulele as a hobby and found it suited me best. It's simple, fun, and great for busting out songs without much set-up. And the strings are way smaller than a bass's, so I found that it was way easier on my fingers too! Other than that, I played a bit of flute in middle and high school for band class, but never played it outside of having to practice for it. I must have small lungs or something, because I always ended up out of breath!
  11. Kind of a weird suggestion, but do you play video games? Games really help me destress in a weird way; when I can't seem to turn off my brain and stop thinking about unpleasant things, it really helps to just take some time and get wrapped up in one specific task. Especially if you can find a really calming game to get into like The Sims or things like that. It's not for everyone, but it's fun and good for relaxing in my opinion.
  12. Weirdly enough, I think I've always known ever since I was a child. I remember having crushes on both boys and girls, and I never really stepped back and thought, huh, is this weird? It always seemed completely natural to me, and I didn't find out until later that it was a little more uncommon than I had expected. So I never really had any feelings of denial, or that I was faking it, or ever confused. In that way, I think I got pretty lucky - except for maybe the reactions of my parents, which were negative to say the least.
  13. Personally, I would choose to adopt. Neither my girlfriend or I feel the need to experience pregnancy, though we still do want kids someday, so I imagine that adoption would be the right choice for us. And there tons and tons of beautiful children who are waiting to have a family, so I think I'd feel good giving one of them a home, one day in the future.
  14. I've actually been thinking a lot about becoming vegan or vegetarian. I don't eat a lot of meat, and I know it's one of the best things to do for the environment. However, I do sort of worry about finding supplements for proteins and safely removing that part of my diet, as well as a few concerns about the financial impact. I've heard that some vegan foods can be quite expensive, though I could be wrong. How expensive are vegan foods/replacements, in your experience?
  15. I agree, that was actually a lot of my problem with the film. It made me sad, but I was kinda grossed out by the sexual scenes in the film that were more about fetishizing lesbianism than they were at honestly trying to portray a real relationship that happened to be between two girls. And yeah, that ending...
