According to NGLogs, I now have 100,000 Total Stats!I wish NGlog would count medals. (Seeings how it claims to count the same way the 10k list does.)
Of course I reached that goal on the Hexalist quite some time ago.
Anyway, seeings how the Hexalist is the authority on what is/isn't a stat, I'd say you reached 100k...quite some time ago. :P
I was meant to comment on this before. Although I mentioned 140,000 total points the other day, I've already reached that a while back considering the inclusion of medals. Maybe we can have a discussion with byteslinger and see if medals can be counted for the combined total. At this point I find it to be acceptable so we should throw some thoughts around in the NG Log thread or something.

That said, I'm still a bit down about the break up but I've been talking to some people and looking back at things, more and more it seems that it was for the better but on the other hand, it does hurt to feel how much we could have done together and what we planned to do in the near-future and now it's all gone out the window.I remember my girlfriend at the time asking her mom if she could go with me on vacation over the weekend of my birthday. So, yeah, there's a nice, depressing story for ya. :P
I can easily look to myself and think at least not so much went down the drain as it could have. The most that we did with each other during the relationship was being together in one city which was the central point between the two of us. The only other thing was hanging out in one place in Liverpool and then a pub crawl, the latter being the downhill point. It's unfortunate that the city where we had our dates will look painful to look at when I'm next there but I can't avoid these places forever, particularly when they're so local. I may find myself in that said city next month so I can tackle any fears/hurtful emotions I have when going through there sooner than later.
I'd try and get the worst feelings out of the system right now but life insists I push forward as opposed to dwelling on past misfortunes.It's best not to dwell on these kinds of things, anyway, they tend just to linger around and turn sour in your gut. :P
That's why I'm wanting to get them out sooner than later. If my heart feels minimally hurt on a daily basis then I'm on the right track.
Oh, and for the first time my replies have to be separated into two posts. Shame it's not for the happiest reasons but at least it's getting us all talking.For the first time, ever? Now that's saying something. ;)
Hahahaha, if only. What I obviously meant was that it's been a long time since we last needed multi posts for quotes. It was much easier when gfox was around but... you know. I've said to him myself during a recent PM that I no longer put pressure on him to start posting here again. I see him less and less for depositing and even on Steam so that's saying something. I last gave him a double PM to reply to everything and next time it might go across three or four messages, haha.

You know what, I was able to enjoy myself a lot with them last night online so I wasn't entirely depressed all of yesterday.Good. I don't know if you exercise at all, but I've always found it to be a good outlet for those kind of emotions, and a good confidence-builder, besides.
Not the first time I've heard that lately. Exercising is something that I've put on my new years resolution and while it might be a generic one, it's one that would do a lot of good for me. Now if only I knew which friends go to the gym on a regular basis. I would have to make it somewhere that isn't over the water and thankfully I do have friends on this side so who knows. As a matter of fact, I was meant to be seeing if a friend of mine is still taking weekly trips to the swimming baths with his brother but I haven't heard anything about that since the start of the year. Mind you, I'm not fond of the local swimming baths with it being Birkenhead and all but it's always worth giving it a shot if I'm with someone I know.
I know for next time whenever something just isn't right, maybe a bit of time on their own will help but if they persist on not seeing me on dates when we're meant to be together, I'll have to speak up for myself. For a relationship, I want to be happy with a girl and do all sorts of things between the two of us whether it be walking around one city, watching a movie together, going to live shows, taking adventures, etc. You know, what a couple should actually be doing. Common sense surely tells you that the two should be there for each other in the most difficult of times but that wasn't happening for me in the end. She was just distancing herself away from me more and more.Yup, you know you've found the right one when she's like your best friend, with teats. :P I remember playing through the Wind Waker with her left hand controlling the joystick and my right hand controlling all the buttons. (Hmm, now that I think back on that; what does that say about who was in control of that relationship?) lmao
And a best friend would not hide away their troubles if they are in need of help and they broadcast all sorts of shit on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. They would be willing to listen out on what their partner says and not just throw things right back at them. If you try and make others feel better, you should take for granted that there are those who will do the same for you in return Those problems are why she didn't seem like a best friend to me in the end. I do feel a love partner should also be like their best friend in the sense that they would talk about common interests very often and be there to help each other.
Personally I don't want to think I have a single best friend as I have quite a diverse lifestyle. I'll hang out with people who play role-playing board games and card games (*cough*nerds*cough* XD), I'll be with those who I know from a local rock bar that I go to on occasions, I'm willing to see old friends going all the way back to secondary school, I have my rare chances to meet those from Newgrounds and then I have some, uhhhh, furries. Some of them may mix and match just fine but having something like furries going to said rock bar would probably cause a riot. :P
HOWEVER, if there is someone who I can deem as a best friend, it's the one who's been seeing live shows with me on various occasions. Not to put everyone else down but it is hard to top someone who's been willing to see live shows with me because we both liked the band(s) we saw. It doesn't stop at music, though as we also have common interests in video games and TV, particularly with Red Dwarf and Doctor Who but I have a shit ton to watch before I'm even considered a hardcore fan of the latter.
As far as relationships go, I cannot and should not expect 100% common interests between the two. While me and her weren't 100% for sure, there were common interests as well, particularly with heavy metal and that was something that could have expanded if things had worked out better. We were wanting to see live shows together but... that's another thing that just won't happen now. At least she had better interests than the previous one who I tried to go out with. Apart from one thing, we had nothing in common whatsoever. I never want to be too picky with what a girl likes/doesn't like as I would only find myself impossible to please. There are reasonable measures, though as if there was one girl who could not stand heavy metal at all, then clearly it wouldn't work out all that well. I just said to myself that a relationship should at least show we can enjoy ourselves with our activities and if we weren't going to have fun, then it's not going to work out.
