Gotta get zaz to host one for 2024 and the 10 people who still come here regularly will get all the other awards while you win one for Photoshopper of the Year and Best Sig since nobody else is making them :lol

Don't try too hard or put up a front. Make sure you're actually listening and responding to what's being said. Being genuinely nice but appearing too keen or desperate to please can be off-putting.

Re: fuck family

Post by Merinda »

Feeling very depressed today.

Had a falling out with both of my brothers in law and in a way, my sisters also.

Just feel like cancelling the wedding and eloping to save the drama.

Also I forgot to take my meds 2 days in a row and that hasn't helped.

Sorry Merinda. Weddings always cause arguments. Don't take any crap from people telling them how YOUR wedding should be run. It's you and your partner's day, not other people's.

So sorry to hear this, Merinda.

I've long since decided that I'm not having a wedding. It's for these exact reasons, as well as the fact that I would rather not spend the money on all the extra stuff associated with them when I could spend it on stuff that my future wife and I actually will like in the long term.

Thanks guys.

Initially, we were going to elope because neither of us are particular keen on a big ceremony and because our parents wanted to be there, we compromised and decided to go as simple as possible and just do a registry wedding, 30 guests, $500 bux, simple.

But even that seems too fucking hard for people to get their shit together for.

I don't care about anything other than marrying him but at this point it feels like I'm working around everyone else and no matter what I do, someone will end up pissed off.

Also, Max, regarding your question re advice for speed dating, I don't have much but make sure you smell good. It's very attractive.

Sorry you have to deal with all of that drama, Min :hug Like Crumbso said, fuck what other people say or think or do about YOUR wedding. Although when it involves family I know that can make things really complicated. But the reality is you cant please everyone or meet everyone's expectations about what they think is best for you. Only you know what that is. Hope that you can find a solution that you're at peace with.

I went and saw Sleep Token last year - drove 4 hours each way. They announced their 2024 tour - playing in May about 15 minutes from my apartment. I signed up for pre-sale tickets on two different outlets. They sold out in less than 2 hours... I've NEVER had that problem with any of the Alter Bridge or Creed concerts I've gone to. Oh well...

There seems to be an insane amount of hype surrounding this tour. Since the show is local maybe check around on social media groups between now and the show and see if anyone needs to sell their ticket.

Yes, or pay silly $ for a resale ticket online. If all else fails I may have to go stand outside the Vibrant Music Hall on show day and beg...

For the whole thing. It covers the venue, the celebrant and the marriage certificates.

Doesn't include food or anything but we'll probably have lunch in the venue after.

Since I'm ramping up promotion for my music lately, I might as well drop a link to my TikTok page here.

http://www.tiktok.com/@maxim6speed

I would greatly appreciate it if some of you guys followed it.

I'm currently putting together a wedding party with my fiancée for June 2025 and the whole thing will be like 22800 PLN (which is like 5.5k USD) for about 80 people including food, service but excluding alcohol, decoratios and accommodation for the guests from afar. Hopefully the inflation doesn't get any worse.
