    Now I'm not one to complain on the current bss.studio website, because it's great. But I'd be lying if I said the design of it all doesn't feel a little bland to me sometimes. Maybe it's the artist/designer inside of me, but I feel like it could look a bit better and more calming. If you're all interested in this, I'll be more than happy to continue with this project and get in touch with Jesse or someone to actually make these changes a reality. That being said, I'm 100% okay with not applying the changes. And in that case, just enjoy a fan-revamp of BSS! I also included the new BSS-logo because that's the part I'm most proud of. Matt/Cwilk

    @Jesse V. I love this question, and I'm glad you've added your own. For we all have things that worry us. Please continue to be awesome because you really are, and there are many people who think the world of you, regardless of who is smarter than you. I think there are far many people who are smarter than me who could help you in your situation, but it is not the person who knows the most, or understands the best who is the one who makes the difference. It is he who takes that knowledge and makes a leap of faith if you will. I don't know the details of your question, or even what concerns that you might have about this, so I have to speculate. That speculation suggests that you might be worried about your employment when surrounded by these people who know more. Hopefully that is the majority of your concern, because in the end I think we all actually do want to be surrounded by many smart and wise people who help us to grow and to learn. Next step, examples from my experience. First from golf, then from business. In the golf world while I worked there I was surrounded by so many people who were more concerned with the aspects of golf and understanding the game and making sales than I was. There were people who knew how to work a room, and get people to enjoy themselves far better than I did. And so there were many times that I was really worried about the prospect of being beaten out for the position or for not understanding enough. What I found was that I was far more skilled in other areas and those same people I looked up to for their ability to work with people, looked to me for answers when it came to numbers. Second example, numbers where I am far better than most people. I surround myself with friends who are far better with numbers than me. I have a friend who does coding and works for MIT. I have a friend who's an engineer who's done work with General Motors. I have a friend who was the president of our university's student body, had three majors, and is an auditor for a really big accounting firm. All of them know numbers better than me, by a long shot. For the longest time I felt lesser than or not good enough when I was around these people. I felt like didn't stack up. But after years of doing such a thing, around the same time that God came in and change my life in other ways, I noticed a shift here as well. Instead of focusing on how well I matched up to them, I got excited about the fact that I had friends who knew so much, and that I could learn from. In fact, I've learned so much from you personally, you wouldn't believe it. From running a stream, to operating a webpage, to interacting with people via the interwebs, to just life in general and dealing with long term struggles. You don't need to be this wizard of wisdom to make a difference in our lives, or yours for that matter. You just need to be the Jesse that all of us already know and love. This isn't an overnight change, or something that goes away just because. I still find myself doing the comparison thing to others. I recommend rereading @Joe 【CDVNL】's post on the comparison trap again. It's good, and I find myself rereading it when I start looking at others as better than or lesser than me . And my personal favorite story/helpful remembrance is the story of Jesus. The truth that you don't have to be perfect, excellent, or even good, because someone else did that for you. And that makes life's journey way easier. Love you friend, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones

    Hi, scrapped the other one, so here's a new one. Hey, my name is Michael, but I call myself Aaron. My girlfriend Juliet broke up with me last Monday, and literally the day after she started dating one of my best friends. Turns out she started liking him about a week before we broke up. This has made me more than a little depressed and this situation has caused many other people to leave. I still have feelings for her for some reason. Idk what to do, any advice?

    It was all done in an image manipulation program. I altered a screenshot of the interface. As for specifically what I did, I created the image below for the background, and implemented the rest straight on the demonstration above. I could create suitable PNGs for the logo with the gradient and the bars on the top. The rest is color manipulating, which may be problematic for some elements, though I haven't seen the actual code. Heck, you guys have the upper hand on coding knowledge so really I don't even know how hard it is to implement anything. As for the colors, I made most elements bluer (I can help out with what color for each element exactly), and I made all fonts darker except the text on the top transparent bars, which I made white. That's pretty much all. Feel free to ask about something or DM me.

    Yeah I thought it would be a nice idea for some people (like me xD) who need/have some ideas for lyrics for songs. I hope we can help each other.

    I just like writing stories on here... So, I'll be honest, I joke about suicidal people sometimes because they're mad stupid. BUT, I'm mad stupid too. ALSO, 99% of the time, they're not gonna suicide. If they wouldn't originally, they're not going to if you made a joke. Either way, I been suicidal for years, but I'm not satisfied yet. My suicidal intentions are solely based on that I don't want to live. I have no reason other than I just don't want to be alive. People generally suicide because something's happened to their loved ones or themselves and they feel like they don't want to feel anymore. I'm a bit of the opposite on the case. I don't exactly have a sense of sorrow or happiness.. Instead of feeling bad for someone, or feeling bad when friends die, etc... It's just a sense of void, not depression, just no thoughts wrap around as, "Oh my god, I miss them." it's more like, "Well *** happens." I got my first car and got fixed up on life, but yet my aunt, nor' uncle has never seen a smile on my face for being happy. Yeah I'll laugh at a joke, but happiness and jokes are two separate entities. It's been this way ever since I've been alive, or well at least ever since I could think for myself. But I don't really think unless I have a lot of time to think and nothing else to do. I never got to "Why I'm a bit of the opposite case." my b, well so... Dead Mother @ 12 Dead Friends @ 14-17 mainly cause they're dumb a**es (See I got u Joe, I censored it, heh) and decided to get in trouble with the wrong people and get shot. Poor/Homeless Ghetto/Section 8 Every chick I ever dated cheated (except the one I'm with now) Abusive Father, this fu**er was trying to persuade a police officer to take me to jail to get rid of me lol. Literally had to eat plain bread with butter/sugar for years on edge and once every half a year we'd have a few ramen things. But we ran out of butter n sugar often so it was bread or bread with water. 1 of 11 kids I never had any problems with any of that, it's non-existent to me, it's still a memory, but I never felt for any of it, I just look upon it like, "Well, gg bois." I don't need help, dw bout it bois, as I said, it's just I want to die, I'm just waiting for if my gf ever leaves me, then yeah. Don't wanna leave her sad. I'd rather disappear without her knowing so it's easier. People say, "Wait until I'm WOKE." I'm more awake when I'm asleep. I don't wanna reset my life. I got a bunch of bad cards, but I was able to change it all around, it doesn't bother me. I just want everything to end for me. It sounds nice.

    Have you ever been hurt before? Whether physically, mentally, or emotionally, there are hurts that we all face in this life. Pain is caused by others. Pain is inflicted by ourselves. And if that was the end of the story life would be very bleak indeed. But we know that it isn't. We know that there are so many great things that come out of the gift of life. We know that there are a million possibilities waiting to be explored. We know that the world is waiting on us. So what do we do? We stop focusing on the pain. We stop focusing on the fact that we've been hurt and we start to focus on the things that are better. Would you rather spend all day worrying about someone hurting you again, or would you rather go spend the day with that person having fun? Would you rather stay at home all day and not go outside because of something you've seen, or would you rather enjoy the sunshine with your friends and family? Focusing on the hurt takes our eyes off of what is good and focuses it on the bad. "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, thing about these things." Take your eyes off the hurt, so that you can see life again. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones

    Steins;gate 0 is a very good show if you liked steins;gate, it requires a decent amount of explanation before you even start the series though. There was good sequels that I haven't watched for the most part like AOT 3, overlord 3, free 3 and my hero 3. Cells at work is surprisingly good and I'd definitely recommend that. If you're isekai trash like me isekai maou has been pretty good, though it should be noted that it's an ecchi. I've heard hanebado, banana fish and asobi asobase were good, but I haven't watched an of them. To finish it off high score girl and back street girls are supposed to be really good. That now concludes Narken's anime nerd out session.
