How many times have yead read the titular phrase on the internet? Be it YouTube, a fanfic, fanart or a blog, how many times have you seen that phrase?
It pisses me straight off.
Why? Because if you write that, then people criticize you, you can always fall back on:
shrugs I was bored so it doesn't really matter.
Wow, what a spineless wuss. Take pride in your work. Embrace criticism. And I mean REAL criticism. People seem to use that because they're afraid of some asshole coming in and posting, "HAHAHAHA! THAT'S SO BAD! I could have done way better with my hands tied around my wanker!" That's not criticism. That's a jealous motherfucker.
If someone tells you, "Wow, that's really bad. You might want to try X Y Z", that's honest criticism and comments like that should help make you stronger instead of being a WUSS and shrugging everything off with, "I was bored HERP DERP!"
"So what if people really were bored Greg!? HUH SMARTYPANTS!!?"
Uh….I don't give a FUCK if you're bored. Does anyone else? Do you need to know if aniMeGRRRL432 was bored or not? Did we really need that?
You don't need to justify shit. You did what you did because you wanted to make something. It doesn't matter how, it doesn't matter why, you just did. Put it out there with pride. Listen to your critics and learn from them. Don't become some freakin' slug that's 'bored' everytime they scan something or throw together a movie.
The opposite case is, "I MADE THIS DEDICATION TO (insert pop culture figure) BECAUSE hE'S TOttally AWEOSME N JUNK!", so there are two very clear ends of the spectrum really.
