It wasnt my fault it broke. I was just playing one day and then in the middle of gameplay the R button was all like "Hurpdurp, Not happening brother" and it just became a peice of clicky plastic. I treat the thing like it's made of glass. I've never dropped it, I've never damaged it. Odd jobs for neighbors on the other had isnt really a bad idea, but people in my neighborhood would probably tell me to go away, just because they could do it for free.
Your family doesn't have the money to buy you a fancy new toy. That's life, and you need to get used to it because it's a shame that you're sitting here whining about an electronic when your parents are worrying about what to feed you.
The sense of entitlement these days... Appreciate what you have. You have the internet for Christ's sake.
wow im sorry that you dont see it from my view. I do appreciate what i have, but when i dont have stuff that works, then it gets on my case. I already said it once but it helps me cope with all of the bull my mom gives me arguing with me about things that arent my deal. it helps me escape the stress when art isnt just enough.
While I understand that you need hobbies to help you escape from stress (everyone does), it just sounds pretty immature to come online and instead of venting about your stress in the family and asking for ways to help, you're complaining about an electronic and claiming that its "not benefiting the narcissist", whatever the hell you mean by that.
Mm I think you need to look up with narcissism means because I fail to see how it applies in this argument--you didn't really explain your situation and ask for help other than "waa my 3DS broke". Why am I being a pain? Because I'm sick of kids acting like self-entitled brats.
are you a troll? if you read the first post you'll get it. my mom argues with everyone in my apartment because she cheated on my dad and cannot accept it. She says my dad is wrong, but he didn't do a thing. She hurts people and if anyone says anything, she talks about "I've gotta do something for my self" or "Welcome to my world". She turns it around to be that she is the innocent one and if anyone doesn't say she is innocent in the family situation she created, then your a bad person in her eyes. I am happy what my dad and brother are doing, but my anger problems are getting more intense. People found out about my parents splitting and don't talk to me anymore.(I don't know who is saying what but it spreads like wildfire). I also accepted the church into my life, but the people who I have had great friendships with look at me like I'm some kind of disease, because they are "Atheist" or something just because religions sound dumb to them, even though there whole families are Christian or Church goers.I cant trust people because if you set an iPod on a desk, and idiot will snatch it up like it's some kind of ever magical device. I don't know what to do in life because people are kicking me in the teeth. The issue with my 3ds sounds very stupid to you, but it stems to times of how it helped me through the times of this year when my mom would come home in a pissed off mood from the man she had an affair with's house and just start yelling at people. She attacked me twice, me having an anxiety attack she just kept yelling and poking when I was in the fetal position on my back(which is not cool, it looks like she's got a deadly weapon in tunnel vision)When my mom would fight with my dad (which this is mostly happening in the house I moved out of 3 months ago, but these events had happened in the beginning of the year and throughout the summer)I'd play videogames to tune the world out, no worries just me and the game. I used to play consoles but my brother uses the same room as me now and its just hard to get in some time to get away and relax. I'm to the point that I am just really pissed off because of people's actions.
It's too bad you are having trouble with your family, but really kid. If a broken DS is your biggest problem outside of that.., if you can't get a 3DS xl.., get a normal one, you're a retro video game enthusiast after all..
Yeah i know I didn't mean to sound harsh. But you know, stress can be relieved in many ways so maybe you could see this as an oppurtunity to find out about other stuff you might like to do. This might sound nerdy, years ago when I moves with my parents to another house, we didn't have tv or internet for over 5 months. At first I was moping around until I found an old flute among the boxes. (My dad eventually went crazy with my attempts to learn to play it and threathened the internet/tv company to send me over with it if they didn't hook us up within the next 2 days) I never really learned to play it so not saying that you should start playing the flute., but who knows!
I do art but video games are just really good for releasing the anger and pain. I get mad because I cant play my Mario Kart 7 that I spent MY money on to play. I cant drift with my 3ds to keep up at high levels. It sounds dumb but MK7 makes me joyful and inspires my art. It gives me great organic shapes.
You think I'm that dumb? I don't think I'm gonna be able to get one due to my mom's bitchiness and my dad and brother are pinching pennies. (my brother buys tons of crap for himself and my dad but leaves me out.)
