bottom line

the bottom line is-I'm here to have FUN!! when I stumbled onto this site I thought it was a really awesome way to simultaneously create and connect with people across the globe. that being said, this is not my whole life. it's a hobby. some people seem to take this to a new level- harassing people over petty things and making the whole experience unenjoyable- and I try to steer clear of that sort of thing. I understand that time deadlines are EXTREMELY important to some people so I do respect them, but it is not the end of the world to me if someone sends things a couple of days late, or interprets a prompt in their own expressive way. I won't stress about it. I just want a drama-free environment where I can make cool things & meet cool people :)
