Poor Mitchy,
I'm shocked that you don't know anyone on here.
Maybe you should meet me.

I deposited $113.40 into PoweredByCNG's bank account, does that mean I know him? :lol:

That's different, all my friends think my sketches of buses are cool, and that it doesn't matter what your drawing as long as its good. With the right friends, you can like what you want. One of my friends likes soccer, I hate soccer, but that doesn't matter to him or me.

I guess those VIC kids are getting up to no good. :lol:

Not only in VIC Ryder, but in WA my old school liked my drawings (albeit I actually had time to do them nicely), but my new one that's that I'm weird for liking buses. I go to them and say "Well, thank you, you a**ehole."

I kept my hobby a secret for the 12 years I was at school. Best thing I ever did although my real life did sometimes cross paths with my school life but I managed to work my way around it... :?

I for one only have a couple of friends who know I like buses, other than that, I keep my hobby low-profile and very discrete. I don't even ride buses in my own area so I don't bump into any of my friends or people I know from school. Being 14 and in year 9 it is difficult to fit in because society is ####ed (yes i swore big whoop, we are all big girls now) up these day, anyone will judge you on anything. Advice is to just keep away from people you know from school when travelling on buses ect... and don't be nerdy or talk about your hobby with other kiddies at school.


Also an update: I have recently started meeting up with Mr.OC Benz

It seems this transport lover community is no different to any other scene.
You have the popular personalities and those that get gossiped about for being different.
The gunzel community is just as guilty of excluding others, being judgemental and other treacherous behavior as high school adolescents or so called adults at any workplace.
Few people can be trusted in general sadly.

It's technically not swearing if its censored now is it? :wink:

But how do they know that you're travelling on the bus to actually commute from somewhere instead of riding it for fun? Unless you had a camera with you it's not so obvious.

It seems as though I'm lucky that I go to school where I'm not bullied or victimised for liking transport. Do some people think it's a weird hobby? Yes of course, but I simply explain to them that it's no different to other mainstream hobbies such as playing sport or computer games (such as your Skyrims and your CODs). Some have even taken interest in it as well (I was impressed when one was able to state what CDC stands for). Some people I know have hobbies I think is weird but I could care less about it, it's not as though I'm going to judge them over it. I see their hobby as the same as mine. That being said I'm sure some people aren't as tolerant., it can be a rotten society we live in sometimes.

Now as for the members I know.

Well when I typed it, I didn't censor it, ATDB must have done it automatically.

Yeah, I always carry a camera with me, and some notes/paper and pen sometimes.

I keep my hobby secret-that's why I barely take pics of buses. Sometimes I'll get a sneaky shot or record bus sounds while I'm on a bus, but still...

I haven't met anyone on this board in person, however something tells me that I have crossed paths with many of you. Like at the Sydney Buses MAN SL202 tour and the Sydney Bus and Coach Show 2013. etc.

So hopefully I can make some acquaintances in 2014, I'll put that on my belated New Years Resolution list!!

Thanks,

I kept my interest of buses well obsession to myself until on Facebook when people I knew saw me commenting, liking or uploading bus pictures. I tried to keep it secret with the Facebook pages and groups BUT if I comment or do something on the groups Facebook says XXXXXXX Commented on this or XXXXXXX Liked this. You can't help it .....Then I just deleted everyone from school, if you want I'm happy to be friends with you on Facebook I'm a friendly young bus enthusiast and always happy to talk :-) Thanks.
