  1. The Gathering 67 The Red Apple Restaurant & Inn 32711 Michigan Ave, Wayne, MI 48184 <--- Directions via Google 7:30 Thursday, June 15th. Really Big Sign Hard to miss. A casual dinner time gathering in a "Denny's like" environment. Club Attire Encouraged but not Required GLBT, Fashion Models, Cosplayers Goths, DGNers, Ex DGNers Re-Goths, Goths for a day, Horror Movie and Sci Fi (especially SW, ST, BSG and GoT ofc fans.) MTG players. Ingressers. The spiritually inclined, Science & History buffs. General weirdos. Totally normal open minded people. All welcome. Like all DGN events this is NOT particularly kid friendly*. Hope to see you there! Please invite any and all you think might be REMOTELY interested! Bring a good attitude! Please help Invite! If you want a card ask! If you really want one ask here in this topic. *like DGN itself , this is not "kid friendly". You can bring them but No F-Bombs will be held back. No sexual innuendos (or straight up sex talk) will be spared. If you can't get a sitter and your kids are not SUPER well behaved leave them in a kennel at home with food & water. This is NOT the place to post about how you're going somewhere else , or doing something else or intentionally not coming or some other BS. Thanks. That being said, Please help us get the word out! Looking forward to seeing you! If you would like one of our weekly "The Gathering" cards (Some Examples). Ask in person at The Red Apple <--- key step. *If you really want to make sure you get one. Just ask here (not in the FB page, that will be futile) and make sure you show up before me. Some time after I walk in the door and whoever has asked for a card (here) has priority. ** Cards Fine Print **If for some reason there are not enough cards to go around (There are typically only 7) 1. Ask at the gathering for a card (first come first serve, with the below exceptions) 2. If your name is not in this topic I'll hold off until someone who does have their name IS in this topic asks for a card. 3. Asking in this topic means you have priority over someone who has not, everyone that asks here (should) get one before someone who has not. 4. I'll hold one for Permanent Benefactors until it's clear they aren't coming if they've asked here. (If you are unsure what this is don't worry about it or have a look here) 5. If you've asked here, just ask at the gathering and you should get a card with no problem. 6. The order in which you ask here is vaguely "sooner you ask the higher priority" but is very hard to keep track of. If you wait until less than 24 hours before the event you risk not getting a card. I make one for everyone that asks here. +2 extra typically but not always the extras vary. No one owns (except Permanent Benefactors) a particular card. Hopefully if you slacked off or there is a screw up you can just trade for a particular card if you end up not getting it the one you wanted.' Corporate summary: Take the whole 2 minutes and ask. If it's not worth two minutes, you don't really want one. Hopefully none of the above will be necessary as everyone that wants a card IS GOING TO SAY THEY WANT A CARD HERE RIGHT? lol Hopefully none of the above will be super necessary and there will never be any drama over the theoretically "for fun" cards. (there never has been) But please request a card HERE if you want one.
  2. I was half awake , just couldn't sleep (partly sick, but nothing contagious just .. meh life) was glad I got to see everyone. Missed several people that were not there. I gave the hard sell for the HS Clash Royale Clan to several people, snagged... 1. Which is typical for promotion. Its hard! Hope to see you guys more often.
  3. yay pictures.
  4. Could someone help me tell people that if they want a card to ask here. After 50 damn times my voice is getting hoarce and there are particular people that will get upset and 'omg how mean!' As if I havent told them 25 times.
  5. A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (collected, illistrated spin off of game of thrones written by grrm)
  6. Right now its really only clash royale. Id have to actually turn on the computer and have a few $ for anything else.
  7. Im better now but stll not great. Things are pretty dark. The help for me is to snap out of it. The anxiety/depression are so bad they have been 'converting' into these physical symptoms. I just keep beating myself up for being a broke loser. It seems os superficial but having gone my whole life being a go-getter with zero $ problems it seems damn near impossible (but im still trying) to not just attack myself for now being the exact broke no job scrub I hate. When u cant even afford prescriptions much less anything 'fun' whats the point? Just breathing air isnt ebough. I hardly ever even smile. Not really. Im trying but it doesnt seem to be working anymore.
  8. Having been there several times (and partly there now) this really sucks. I know its hard to see but there are LOTS of people that really do care I know that for a fact. The problem partly is that many of us are broke/crazy so its hard to offer tangleable help that you can 'put in the bank' so to speak. Good therapy definitely helps this sort of thing. But its a two way street, you have to belivie that it can work. If you think you can or you think you cant... your right. We have to unlearn the built in self-doubt , automatic negativity and cognitive distortions. Have to learn to love yourself and not judge yourself, just observe, be kind to yourself. You deserve it. Why? Because you do! Its up to us to value ouselves first. Which can be very hard to learn after a lifetime of self dislike/low self worth. DBT/CBT is really helpful but you have to do it. The easiest way to do it (the best would be classes but many of us just wont do that) is self-learning apps. Headspace is the one that has had lots if research backing it up but is also the most expensive. 'Aware' is (mostly) free , Clam is the one Im going throuh right now mainly because I like the womans voice but only the part Im doing is free. All of these have good stuff for sleep too. CBT workbooks have lots of research showing real success with self esteem / depression but they are work. Google CBT Workbook there are tons of options. Anyhow as always I wish there was a teleporter. Damn geography gets in the way of a lot of life. You can get through this. *hugs*
  9. When you are the fixer / Doctor / Caregiver / One that always takes care of things, pepeople start seeing you as just 'they just do that' which is terrible. I try never to take people like you for granted. Beforr the damn accident I had this same issue. Im happy to hel but at the same time some apreciation would be nice. All I can do these days is offer apreciaton , which sucks, but I try to do it. Being on the opposite end of things now and having fully seen both sides I apreciate you more. Many people have been 'dependant' for so long it seems normal. Me Im still in shock how anyone would bother to help, it wasnt like that before. You are strong/energetic but ppl need to realize you are not an inexaustable resource and that your stock value is much, much higher than they realize.
  10. Wow. Ive seen them twice did reslize they had been around so long. Once when they came somewere in this vacinity and their pemanant show at Disney World (more elaborate).
  11. Thats great. I went to school for fine art but never did much sculpting its a harder skill as you have to 'draw' in 3D people dont apreciate it enough. (Pencil, Painting, charcoal, Pen & Ink is what i focused on)
