Get it Out

All credit goes to former member Ainsley.

Since the original board seems to be gone, here's where you can now rant about whatever's bothering you, no matter what it is.

You need to be a member of NMG Members to add comments!

  • Im in high school theatre this year bc Im in high school and like ......... everyone is so much better than me. I feel like this annoying little freshman who shouldnt have even gotten in
  • Recently, I've been coming up with really g o o d and c r e a t i v e ideas for stories and stuff, but I just can't commit to them. I end up dabbling too much and losing the ideas that were originally good. I don't know how to fully set something up so I can write it, start to finish, and be proud of it. I also have these bad feelings about my characters and them being super cliché or have no flaws and will make for boring plots. I know I'm a good writer, and everyone tells me that, but sometimes it just feels a bit hard to believe. I want to be a published author when I get older, and I want to write things that I'm proud of, but I just can't. I can't stay focused on a plot and I end up just hating my characters and giving up. It all just makes me feel useless.
  • So this is an interesting situation:
    About a year and a half ago, this girl told me she had a crush on me. It was on the second to last day of school, and she was so sweet and I think at the time the feeling was mutual, but I didn’t really tell her that. A week later, I left to go to Italy for a month. When I came back, she told me she didn’t like me anymore and told me she was probably straight. At the time, that really hit me hard because I had just come to the realization that I may have had a crush on her and that I was bi. I soon accepted the fact that she was straight, but I’ve had a minor crush on her ever since. Sometimes I feel like I’m getting ‘crushing’ vibes from her, but I can’t tell if I’m imagining it. I want to tell her how I feel, but I’m also terrified because I know that it will ruin our friendship. We’ll be going to different high schools in a year, and I only have one last school year with her to see if she likes me back and I’m honestly stressed about it.
    • aaaaa sounds stressful. I'm not sure what other advice to give besides don't let it bother you for the rest of the school year. Act n a t u r a l around her haha
  • I just watched the trailer for the movie The Hate U Give. I enjoyed the trailer, and I'm excited for the movie to come out. Then I made the mistake of reading a whole bunch of comments. I simply can't believe how so many people can post such hateful remarks. I read a few that said that Khalil got what he deserved, and it just makes me sick, every single time I see comments or articles like that. It honestly really depresses me too, because it reminds me of how messed up our world is.
    • Aw, yikes.
      It sounds like it'll be good. I'm interested in how the representation etc. will be like in the movie.
  • I'm so iterated, frustrated, and just plain old mad right now. My brother won't stop giving me a hard time for everything (including being on NMG which is none of his business), and just isn't being at all nice right now. Ugh. I'm just going to go outside because I can't take it right now. He has also threatened to quit a performance for my uncle which we've been working really hard on. arrrrrrgggggggggggg
    • Ahhh I can relate so much. Especially on the last part wow. Me and my friends and my brother had a whole show planned and my brother didn’t like one things about it and then refused to do it. Anyway, I’m sorry. Sometimes times are like that with siblings and it seems like a good idea to take a break. Feel free to PM me if you want to rant more or anything. I have lots of experience in brothers being like that <333
      • Ugh, I'm sorry. Thank you so much. <33 I think he changed his mind and the show will go on, he apparently just said it to make me mad.
        • Yeah, that makes sense

Worried About a Parent's Mental Health

“My dad has this obsession with cleaning, and It has gotten to the point where it has affected family life, and cleaning is the first thing he thinks of when he comes home. I am trying to help him, but every time I broach the subject, he changes the subject to "me helping him with cleaning". He won't admit he has anxiety and perfectionism. He says no to a therapist and he won't let me help him, so I don't know what to do. I'm worried that he is making himself really unhappy.” -Kate Oh man I’m…

Dealing With Stage Fright

I really like to sing and act. People say school musicals are super fun, but whenever I sing in front of an audience I stink. I really wanted to try out for a part but I was too nervous. What do I do about my stage fright?  - EV   Oh geez, I know how you feel. Stage fright can be very frustrating - nothing throws a wrench into plans like getting the jitters right before a performance or audition. Maybe before you have to perform or audition, try to take a few minutes to do something that calms…

Letting Go Of The Past

I sometimes have trouble letting go of things that I regret. I'll spend days just worrying over what I should have done better. How can I let go of the past and move forward? - Anonymous   Oh goodness, I can relate to this so much that it’s almost painful. The past—especially the parts of the past that we regret—does have a way of overstaying its welcome in our minds; I think it’s a somewhat universal difficulty, or at least one that many of us (including me) struggle with. The good news is…

When Friends Are Ignoring You

“At school, I feel like my friends are ignoring me, and don’t really want to be with me. Sometimes I don’t want to hangout with them because all they talk about is boys and crushes. So I feel like feeling left out and alone makes me a hypocrite, because stuff like that doesn’t interest me. But when I think about it, I think that all my friends have more friends they’d rather be with than me. Sorry if this is tedious. Any advice?” -Anonymous Gosh, I know almost exactly you feel. Especially with…
