Well, it counts the same way the PENTALIST does. :P
The Pentalist from before we had Art Reviews...
That's true, I had totally forgotten about Art reviews. (Probably because I don't have any.) ^^;
Yeah, it's a bit complicated with total stats, so I still rely on NGLogs to count it for me.
I suppose it would be, now that I consider the Art reviews. It'd just be your NGlog total + medals + Art reviews = total stats then? Hopefully byteslinger can get it updated at some point.
Well this sucks, seriously. When I think that I moved together with my gf after about 6 months... :P
Ok, we already where 23 and 22 respectively, and my mom more or less kicked me out (sounds more serious than it was ;) )
We were a few years younger -at that awkward time right after graduating high school. I think that's a big part of the reason why things didn't end up working out... Anyway, so did you end up getting married shortly after moving in together, or was it more recent?

Careful guys, this is a three-parter here.
Holy shit, dude. D:

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 would be nice, though it's not a huge deal for me to do some quick addition to find out my real total. I do hope she is able to get it done eventually, though, seeings how NGlog is already keeping track of user's medals/points.
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.
The memory will lose it's sting in time. Hopefully it wont haunt you for too long, seeing as you two weren't together over the long haul. I suppose you might be grateful for that, in retrospect.
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.
Yeah, I somehow didn't think it really was. :P It really is a damn shame gfox isn't around anymore, as we could really use someone like him around here to thicken up the conversation a bit. (Hell, even Coop's presence is beginning to be felt less and less around this thread. And if he stops posting congrats lists, I'm going to have to resort to congratsing myself. ;_;) Anyway, at least you are still in contact with him, and even on NG no less! Make sure you tell him Metal says hi and that he's updating your old Pentalist next time you talk to him. (He better remember me!) :P
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've been exercising now for almost a year and weight training for the last few months. I'd say it's made me a bit more outgoing, not to mention increased my energy substantially. I only wish I had access to a pool, as swimming is arguably the best total-body exercising you can do.
Anyway, I would recommend going for a swim as often as possible, it'll be good for both your physical and mental states.
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.
I could see how frustrating that would be; her using social media as an outlet to problems that she should be discussing with you, in private. It seems like she wasn't taking things very seriously, in terms of trying to work through the issues she was having, that or just very confused.
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
I can kind of relate to that. I highschool I hung out with a group of friends, some of which I did nerdy stuff with, others I played/talked sports and others music. But we were all friends with each other and hung out together as a group, nonetheless. (Probably because most of us went all the way back to grade school, before many of our interests developed.) And yeah, about the furries -you should keep them... quarantined; it might be best for everyone that way. ;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.
To me a "best friend" is just the person who you feel most comfortable around/have the most in common with. Like if you were to go on a road trip for a week and you could only pick one friend, who would it be? :P While I hung out with a lot people in school, there was that one guy who was my best friend. Interestingly enough, we were both giant nerds, both of us being hardcore into DBZ and Pokemon (especially the former). We both drew DBZ fanart and played the card games and shit. (Oh, and not to mention were were both huge Nintendo fanboys.) Lots of good memories there, anyway. :)
As far as relationships go, I cannot and should not expect 100% common interests between the two.
That girl I was speaking of before and I were pretty damn close; one reason why I truly regretted that loss. :( Anyway, I'd think that over time you would start to adopt some of each other's interests, to some extent.
