Of course I reached that goal on the Hexalist quite some time ago.

I wish NGlog would count medals. (Seeings how it claims to count the same way the 10k list does.)

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

Good luck. :)

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. (She had just turned 18 at the time and was still living at home.) Her mom consented initially, thinking it was just a pipe dream we had, or something) but then suddenly started freaking about about it later on when she saw that we were actually serious about it and getting ready to leave. Being a legal adult, she could have went with me, but decided not to upset her mother and stayed home. (Keep in mind we had been dating for a couple years at this point, and her mom knew who I was and seemed to like me well enough.) So anyway, I had to literally unpack all my shit and call the hotel to cancel the reservations at the last minute. Needless to say I was furious about that for quit some time. She kept telling me that we'd get the chance, but we ended up splitting up a few months later. So, yeah, there's a nice, depressing story for ya. :P

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

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. ;)

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.

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

Well there you have it.

That's definitely the right attitude to have. Just sitting around idly and dwelling on it is something you want to avoid.

Touche. I know I said to not dwell on it too much, especially when I have something big to look forward to shortly but it helps to look back and know what went wrong. As you said just before, it's a matter of taking it from experience. At least now I can set some real standards on what I want from a girl and feel whether she is right for me or not. Unfortunately, my main issue all this time is that I don't know as many girls as I should and those that I do know are already taken. It's both that I didn't try asking them out or when I first met them they were already with someone. This is why I feel I should spread my wings some more (like a dragon damn well should, hahaha) and meet new people. Who knows who I could end up meeting by doing this? This was actually my attitude for most of 2012 so let's get back on track with that!

Well put. I've always been pretty terrible about meeting new people, so all the girls I've ever met were introduced to me, or coworkers, most of which are already in relationships, of course. (I actually lost a good, long-time friend when a girl got between us, but that's a different story.) Anyway, find something you enjoy doing, and try to find some like-minded people. (I would imagine the internet could be a helpful tool in this pursuit.) Though it's easier said than done, as it's something I'm going to be trying to work on myself here this summer. Lets see how that goes. :\

Yeah, it's a bit complicated with total stats, so I still rely on NGLogs to count it for me.

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 ;) )

Careful guys, this is a three-parter here.

So about this working trial. A little complication occurred on the way. It wasn't anything to do with me or the place I was meant to work for, one of my references is ill right now so they need to find someone else within the same business to take over. Since they couldn't get back soon enough, they are unable to put me on work trial until otherwise and they put someone else in instead. It may not definitely work out for whoever they've put on instead so there's always a chance to be employed by them or there'll be other opportunities from the agency to offer to me.

I was able to catch up on some old friends today so that took my mind off things, even though I did let them know of recent events. That said, they were able to amuse me so I'm still enjoying myself. While I have been saying a lot in these posts, since the start of the writeups I've only felt really down once or twice throughout.

One hour journey means one extra hour of sleep while traveling to work, lol. I enjoy the extra nap time I can get in the morning and/or in the evening, when going back home.

On the bus journey to the school and back (only to see where it was), I did feel like my mind was asleep while I was on it. However, I can't let it be too sleepy, otherwise I'll miss my stop. I wasn't even sure which stop I needed to get off at and it turned out the one I thought I should get off at is the right one providing I do work at that school.

After the actions I took, she did realise what she was doing did go too far but unfortunately, she couldn't be with me anymore as a result. It's possible that she felt she gave me too much trouble and I would have been willing to give her a second chance. However, she did say relationships were something that only put pressure on her mind so I think it's about time she stayed on her own for a good while.
From what I know, it's the pressure that can trigger the urge to cut yourself. May it be pressure because you are bullied at school or at work, or that your life is just very difficult right now. I'm just glad I have some sort of "natural barrier": I cannot see my own blood, it makes me feel sick, heh.

I can't say she's had an easy life because she established her past well enough, unlike most things that are going on with her. She tends to take a lot of things personally from what I gathered here and there and if she was the one that was starting mischief and then gets herself hurt in the process, she'll put the blame on others. Meeting some of her friends for that one time easily showed me that.

As for cutting myself or any form of self-harm/suicide, it's something I don't think I could do. Even if I'm in the worst state of my life, it would probably still be hard for me to just go ahead and kill myself. I could have a gun, a knife or a rope that would be the way to end my life but chances are I'd be too afraid to just accept the pain. Not sure whether I find myself to be a pussy for thinking that way or not but this can be a touchy subject. I'm hoping she does find a way out of the mess she put herself in and stays away from that troubled past.

I think one of the problems was how soon it was for her to be with me after her previous break up.
I heard that one as well from a friend when I still was going to school. She had a new boyfriend just three weeks after her break up with the previous boyfriend. It didn't last very long and she said that it was just a big mistake on her end. She needed more time to get over her previous break up.

I know one that just left someone for another girl immediately. I'll admit the relationship for that one was a weird one but it wasn't a good way to handle things. Like I said a few times here, I don't know as many girls as I should do so the odds of even finding someone again really soon is highly unlikely. At least that helps me out to not go into another relationship so soon and still have some troubles with the previous events pressuring my mind.

It'll be hard to see her the way I did before but maybe this is still doable. As long as she does take her time on things and do what is best for her, I can't see many reasons as to why we shouldn't be friends at this time. I'll just have to see how she is whenever I do see in person her again. Maybe when she is feeling down it might be easier to make her feel better.
You'll just have to wait and see. If it doesn't feel right, you can always avoid personal contact. But I think you should at least try it out to meet her again as a friend.

She's fond of me enough to have a photo on her wallpaper with both of us on (including other people) so it's not like seeing my face is filling her heart with rage. That said, letting herself recharging her batteries should give her a good feeling for when she's back with friends that we both know. I'm only going to feel bitter at her if she goes against her own words to me quickly after the break up which would further put a dent on trust and that's not something either of us should risk. If we can remain friends, it would be a step up from her other two ex boyfriends who she no longer even speaks to so that's something to do to give her more confidence in life.

Not bad, not bad. They're not a high priority on my list to see, though but it's always good to hear big names playing around here.
Iron Maiden will be playing here. ;)

Lucky, they're only playing in Download. I'd much rather have their own big venues than festivals. I suppose my next chance will be whenever they record their next album and I think it'll be another two years until we hear another Maiden album and they say they only see themselves writing another record or two before they call it a day.

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.

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.

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.

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.

(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.

I have been hit and miss with people. From 2012's experiences, I've met a few people in Chester, one of them being a dragon fanatic like I am, and since I've seen them I've had some games on TF2 with them and for a game that you can play so often, that's always good for us all. However, for a bad experience with an attempt to meet friends of friends, the new year celebration just went past is a great example of that. One guy and his girlfriend were hostile to us and we were not fond of each other because of conflicting interests. Plus, he felt like he had authority over the party when it wasn't even his own fucking place. He did have that "NO FUN ALLOWED" stigma to him.

It's a shame where I meet some of people haven't resulted in finding as many girls as I should have but I can always keep trying to look around. It's either I give up and not find anyone at all or I can look anywhere and meet anyone new that I think I can get along with. So yeah, meeting new people is always a gamble. You never know who you'll meet and while some of them will be rotten apples, there's always diamonds in the rough so it's always worth exploring.

I would imagine the internet could be a helpful tool in this pursuit.

It SHOULD be a helpful tool but sadly there's huge downfalls for using the internet to find a possible love partner. There's always those jackasses who'll pretend who they're not. Newgrounds is certainly not a good place to try and find someone you'll love. While there have been some successful relationships where both met on this site, that's really once in a blue moon and this site isn't really a source for finding someone. Maybe you can hang out at meets and get along with a lot of new people but to seek for a relationship, it's not the most ideal place.

I'll admit that the only forum I even post on nowadays is the NG BBS and even that's showing a decline of activity. Probably not so good on me when the only other forms of communication on the internet for me is the main social networks. Maybe I can wander around on the internet and see which places can interest me. It would be nice if I could rekindle my interest in the Metal-Archives forums. I can talk about metal a lot so why did I end up slipping away from there? There's a lot to consider so I'll tackle things one at a time.

After a while your body just "knows" where to get off and you'll wake up from your doze automatically.

At least that helps me out to not go into another relationship so soon and still have some troubles with the previous events pressuring my mind.

Yeah, I guess it wouldn't be "fair" to the other person if you just use her to get your mind off of your previous relationship.

I could have seen them at the Wacken Open Air. But since this festival turned into one huge pile of dogshit I rather not spent any more money on that... not even for Maiden!

I've been speaking to her yesterday. Although the text she sent me originally went to the wrong person, we were talking a bit and things are still fine with her as far as friendship goes. To be honest, while she's very difficult to understand on the inside, I'm at least happy for her to have taken the break up much better than the previous ones. There's been no Facebook meltdowns or anything and she still thinks of me a lot. As a matter of fact, speaking to her yesterday was the most fun I had with her in a few weeks.

After a while your body just "knows" where to get off and you'll wake up from your doze automatically.

True that. Rarely I miss a stop on my road when getting back home because my body is programmed too well when to get off.

At least that helps me out to not go into another relationship so soon and still have some troubles with the previous events pressuring my mind.
Yeah, I guess it wouldn't be "fair" to the other person if you just use her to get your mind off of your previous relationship.

And that's what kinda happened with her when she was with me considering how little time she gave herself between break ups and another relationship. She did admit that she still hadn't got over the last relationship so how she feels about the break up with me is not entirely clear but surely it's better handled this time.

Lucky, they're only playing in Download. I'd much rather have their own big venues than festivals. I suppose my next chance will be whenever they record their next album and I think it'll be another two years until we hear another Maiden album and they say they only see themselves writing another record or two before they call it a day.
I could have seen them at the Wacken Open Air. But since this festival turned into one huge pile of dogshit I rather not spent any more money on that... not even for Maiden!

That's the sad thing. It seems most of these festivals seem good at first but then they turn to shit after a while. This is why I much prefer standalone shows and never festivals.

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?

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.

Good start there -and his opinion on metal is...? ;)

One guy and his girlfriend were hostile to us and we were not fond of each other because of conflicting interests. Plus, he felt like he had authority over the party when it wasn't even his own fucking place. He did have that "NO FUN ALLOWED" stigma to him.

Yeah, I remember you talking about him. I still say you guys should have jumped his ass. :D

It's a shame where I meet some of people haven't resulted in finding as many girls as I should have but I can always keep trying to look around. It's either I give up and not find anyone at all or I can look anywhere and meet anyone new that I think I can get along with. So yeah, meeting new people is always a gamble. You never know who you'll meet and while some of them will be rotten apples, there's always diamonds in the rough so it's always worth exploring.

Well, the way I see it is you're going to meet new people in life, whether you want to or not... (school, jobs, etc.) Though you can always do more on your own, as far as you know...that whole "socializing" thing. (lol) Anyway all you can really do is take the good with the bad, because, well, that's life! :P

At 3/20/13 10:31 PM, Bahamut wrote: It SHOULD be a helpful tool but sadly there's huge downfalls for using the internet to find a possible love partner.

I was referring more to finding social groups, like people who get together to go hiking, for example. Probably should have clarified that a little more.

Newgrounds is certainly not a good place to try and find someone you'll love.

Yeah, I wouldn't think NG would be all that great for finding a girl, for many reasons. 1. The guy/girl ratio is like 100:1. 2. Most are probably going to be under 18 3. Any girls on the BBS are going to be constantly harassed/pestered by horny teenage boys and probably not be interested in getting to know anyone from NG in that way. (though some seem to enjoy that kind of attention.) Anything else? Well, most people in the General Forum are freaking queer as springtime, if that counts. lol

While there have been some successful relationships where both met on this site, that's really once in a blue moon and this site isn't really a source for finding someone.

There's two couples that met here, right? I always thought that a really neat story.

Maybe you can hang out at meets and get along with a lot of new people but to seek for a relationship, it's not the most ideal place.

I'm pretty sure Gagsy loves you...Or is it only your plushies she's after? :x

I'll admit that the only forum I even post on nowadays is the NG BBS and even that's showing a decline of activity.

But you're never allowed to leave, you understand that, right? :P

On the other hand, a few months ago I didn't get off in time. But not because I was sleeping, but because I was reading. And the station I have to get off and the station before that look pretty similar. So I looked out of the window and thought I still have one station left... and then I realized my mistake. >_>

W:O:A would still be good (but overpriced) if the people who went there would actually care for the music. But it seems like that about 50% of the visitors are just there to "have a look at it" and don't know or see a single band or even listen to any metal at all. For them, the festival is just a reason to whoop it up.

How about we all just have a slumber party and talk about stats all night. It doesn't have to be about who wants to be gay with who. XD

*who wants to be gay with whom. There is never a time to allow your grammar to slip!

Well, last season's breakdown went like this:

Sunday - lost every match, except a friendly. I was captain.
Wednesday - finished mid-table, runner up in the senior cup, winners of the invitation plate.
Saturday - Won the league (1st XI); Runner up in the league (2nd XI).

I was scorer for the most part on the Saturday team. I did play two games and took a couple of wickets.
Sounds like you did pretty well, overall. Good luck this year! Out of curiosity, is there any video of you playing on YouTube, or something? I'd be curious to see it.

There are a couple of videos of us celebrating after winning. From 2011 2012 and hopefully one for next season ;)

Did you end up making it onto the top 100 list before or after Auz consolidated all the reviews together? I remember you had yet to make it on, back when I was still updating that list.

So you must have gotten married fairly recently, then. If I weren't notoriously inconsistent with my activity here on NG, I probably would have known this already. :\

Yeah, I was the one with the camera, hence why the quality was so poor. Perhaps if I can get a girlfriend who is willing to attend a game or two, she will get some action shots of me in the middle, or even some video footage. We shall see.

Did you end up making it onto the top 100 list before or after Auz consolidated all the reviews together? I remember you had yet to make it on, back when I was still updating that list.

Maybe "someone" should write her a message? :P

I don't know. Is 7 years later "shortly after moving in together"? :P
So you must have gotten married fairly recently, then. If I weren't notoriously inconsistent with my activity here on NG, I probably would have known this already. :\

Since 11.03.2011... oh wait, wrong date format. For you, it should be 3/11/2011. ;)

Aw, come on! Well, at least my mouth is free to prep some spitballs now. >:)

Yeah, I was the one with the camera, hence why the quality was so poor. Perhaps if I can get a girlfriend who is willing to attend a game or two, she will get some action shots of me in the middle, or even some video footage. We shall see.

I'll be honest, I was kinda hoping you'd be the crazy guy spraying the champagne everywhere. (Though I know your likeness well enough to know it wasn't at first glance.)

As if my week couldn't have been shit enough. We all know my relationship problems but life thought it wasn't enough so the next thing to happen was getting screwed over with the job just because of references not getting back to the agency in time. The last thing to happen, well, I just so happened to have taken the wrong fucking train tickets with me and I missed out on the London trip as a result. While I'll have saved a bit of money by not going and will get refunded for the train tickets, I could have done with going to the live show to see Gojira and Ghost on stage just to see something. Instead, I did see some friends today but in the evening I got a headache from my cousin. He may be very young but my patience has its limits, particularly at this time. The week ahead better treat me well.

Sorry for the four-parter guys.

Listening to:

Too much. This took me forever.

Well would ya look at that? Let's see if I make you do it again!

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.

Eh, it's nice to have it more accurate.

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.

Let's see what I can do from now until Thursday. My sister will be here for the Easter weekend so I'll see if I can get all my worst feelings out from now until then. I've been feeling really depressed all day. The various unfortunate events don't help me at all but I am trying to fight through this difficult time. I'll admit that perhaps I was a little too overconfident with some of the things I've been saying here. I want to be positive for a change but it's just not easy to keep it up all the time. I guess additional shit happening just doesn't make it any easier for me. I'm sure if I did get the work trial as promised and went to the live show, I'd be in a better mood right now.

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

Yeah, I'm surprised I could even reach him at all that way. I just knew that if you're going to deposit at least half of the time, you WILL notice new PMs in your inbox. He must have took a good half hour at least just to reply to me so it's great that we're still in contact. As for the whole LUL activity, you are damn right about that. It's hard to even post here on a daily basis now which is a damn shame. This place has been like my internet home but I guess times are changing. Anyway, I'll make sure I note you on the next PM I send to him. I'll give him the necessary time to respond to my latest messages.

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.

I got back to said friend and he said that the plans are fallen since his brother felt it wasn't getting him to lose some weight. Looks like no plans for regular swimming now. I did it so often a decade back when I went there with my aunt on a weekly basis. Then things drifted away and we weren't up for it anymore. Back then and even now I feel swimming is one of the more fun forms of exercise. It's always a blast when you can swim with friends and if you can give your body some exercise in the process, it's a win-win situation!

Whatever people I know do for regular exercises, I should ask on Facebook sometime soon and see what goes on. Maybe one will do just work outs at the gym but anything should be good. Well, perhaps not everything as I won't jump into one sport for an activity due to potential risks with some of them. I suppose if there was one sport to do it would be tennis... *remembers his own name* Goddammit Andy!

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.

One did say to me that she probably wasn't in for a serious relationship. If that's the case, I just wonder how she managed to stay with one guy for 18 months. Maybe sometime last year things started to change for her and she's not been the self that she should be. I suppose I'm not much better when I use Newgrounds to talk about what's been going on between me and her but at least I'm not using this place to vent out on my own mental issues which some have done in the past and got themselves in an ugly situation as a result. I won't name and shame but some may remember an incident or two.

At least I never showed her this site. I felt from the very start when I knew she was a sensitive individual and bringing her to the BBS would only lead to misery. You know, despite how much I've spent on here, I've not mentioned Newgrounds to many friends in the outside world. Only my friends going back to secondary high school and the other odd one or two know of my presence here. One could argue that I should try and get more to this site but I feel some things that are on the internet are best kept there. And besides, most I know seem to be more into 4chan so it won't work out all that well for them.

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

Well, I am being very careful with the furries I'm getting acquainted with that are beyond my local friends. While I can understand their fetishes can be seen as odd to many (I have to draw the line somewhere for their porn), I don't see what's so bad about the fursuiting aspect. They can actually look adorable when you see them in person and to me, it's not much different than those dressing up as various Disney characters in the theme parks. That said, there's some red zones from the fandom that I cannot tolerate at all, babyfurs being the best example... I just don't understand them at all and it can't be a sign of a sane person. You can certainly quarantine them. :)

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. :)

Well, I can't judge you over DBZ for anything at all. If I play Yugioh then what right do I have? :P

Lame-ass confirmed!
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.

Yeah, I was willing to listen to her on all her interests. She does expertise in dancing and I've never been much of a dancer all my life, unless headbanging and pushing shit around in moshpits counts for something, haha. I don't know how much heavy metal she knew but she's good to know Burzum, Diablo Swing Orchestra and even Sunn 0))). Only a fan of DSO here but Sunn 0))) aren't the most accessible metal band to get into. Infact, she knew that I liked Helloween a lot and when she drew a picture of my dragon character, she did put a Helloween T-shirt on me and that put a huge smile on my face. :D

Still, there was still a ton more we could have explored together. Maybe since we're still on best friends status despite the break up, I can still show her a lot from metal.

Good start there -and his opinion on metal is...? ;)

He's not so much on music in general but he knows I like my metal a lot. Still a cool guy for sure. Keep in mind that I do have a fair amount of friends who aren't as big into heavy metal as myself, one friend and my sister are. There's different interests but we're still all cool together.

One guy and his girlfriend were hostile to us and we were not fond of each other because of conflicting interests. Plus, he felt like he had authority over the party when it wasn't even his own fucking place. He did have that "NO FUN ALLOWED" stigma to him.
Yeah, I remember you talking about him. I still say you guys should have jumped his ass. :D

We shouldn't be seeing him again. I think the host will know to be more careful with mixing friends from different places (again, see above about my whole knowing people from five different parts of my life). While she did hold a party for one's birthday last week, there was unfortunately an argument with one of her roommates over it that night. I feel bad for her since I'm sure she enjoys us all and doesn't want things to go sour for the night. I wouldn't blame her if she doesn't host another party like this again if it only keeps giving her hassle from others.

It's either I give up and not find anyone at all or I can look anywhere and meet anyone new that I think I can get along with. So yeah, meeting new people is always a gamble. You never know who you'll meet and while some of them will be rotten apples, there's always diamonds in the rough so it's always worth exploring.
Well, the way I see it is you're going to meet new people in life, whether you want to or not... (school, jobs, etc.) Though you can always do more on your own, as far as you know...that whole "socializing" thing. (lol) Anyway all you can really do is take the good with the bad, because, well, that's life! :P

It's no doubt that schools are generally the first place where you meet new people that you will always remember or even friends. Maybe others don't have fonder memories of primary school (or elementary school for the Americans) as I did. I was in a class of 8/9 and we were always together. It was a really sad time when they all moved onto secondary school while two of us were a year behind. The academic year between myself and those who I knew was always the worst part of school for me. When they all left for the next part of their lives, I was stuck behind. Some of them I've not been able to ever see since they all left so who knows where some of them are now?

It was worse in secondary school considering all that hell I had to go through. Every single fucking day there I was always afraid of being bullied and generally it happened. The teachers and support staff never did a single goddamn thing to help me and some of them only made it worse for me. By the last year of school I was just ready to get myself expelled and fight those who would attempt to screw around with me. I did have a few fights as a result but it never got me into huge trouble, surprisingly enough. Again, the most crucial part of my life and I could have thrown it all away but the exam results I got were all passable and within the highest grades I could possibly get.

Even though I did have a hellish time, I can easily agree that at least it didn't turn to catastrophic events like attempting to burn the school down and having myself stuck in an asylum for a few years (*cough*Sirtom*cough*) and while I did see a psychiatrist a few times and even had someone else to see me once a week for the last two years of school life (because the support staff were shit at doing their jobs to help someone with Asperger's Syndrome), I was nowhere near the point of what my ex has to go through just to try and help out with her mental issues.

However, even if I may have not had the worst time imagineable at school, how the situation was handled was still inexcusable for them. Even to this day I still hate them all and would rather not see them anywhere in sight and if they did try to approach me, I won't mind being openly honest about my own feelings and tell them to FUCK OFF! Thankfully I've only ever bumped into those useless shits once or twice since leaving school so my unfortunate encounters are at least extremely rare. Then again, maybe they have spotted me in town somewhere a few times but either they knew to keep their distance away from me or listening to music on my iPod makes it piss easy to ignore them, possibly both.

Sadly, I've had the misfortune to see the former headteacher of said school when the family was out for my nan's 75th birthday at a restaurant in December. I was looking forward to the evening and everything but then came her, my mood died entirely. I immediately headed to the bar and got myself a drink. My dad tried to ask me if I remembered her and I told him that I didn't have fond memories at the school at all and he spoke against me for it. That alone really killed my mood and it didn't help when further on the night my dad decided to poke fun at me for various things so I was damn close to storming out the restaurant and heading back home. I didn't want to ruin my nan's 75th birthday but some people in the family should know fucking better by accepting that I didn't have an enjoyable time in secondary school at all.

And even if this shit happened seven years ago, there is still that one that I still despise a lot for what she did to me one day. Due to computer issues, I was under stress one day and wasn't able to do a lot of work so she called me in and told me off and she should have fucking known better that she should have dealt with someone with a mental disability a lot better than that. I tend to not excuse myself with saying "Oh I have Aspergers" but when it comes to a pupil in a school and you treat them badly despite knowing what stresses they have, you're a sick fuck and I hope karma hit you hard somewhere down the road!

Whoooa, I guess I said a lot about school there but I suppose if I start looking back at things, I'm gonna go on a train of thought. I apologise if you actually read through all of that but I suppose it helps to explore the mind. Hell, I'd be amazed if anyone else actually read all of this. Now if only I was more able to find out what went wrong with my ex instead of just taking vague reasons, it could have worked out better now. I only wish I could just grab a Psycho-portal, dive into her mind and fought all those demons myself.

Awesome points rewarded if you got the reference just then.

I was referring more to finding social groups, like people who get together to go hiking, for example. Probably should have clarified that a little more.

Yeah, I knew what you were saying and should have took it more that way than how I approached it. Ah well, it's been giving me thoughts so it's helping in one way. That said, I am thinking to myself on where I should be going for online socialising.

Yeah, I wouldn't think NG would be all that great for finding a girl, for many reasons. 1. The guy/girl ratio is like 100:1. 2. Most are probably going to be under 18 3. Any girls on the BBS are going to be constantly harassed/pestered by horny teenage boys and probably not be interested in getting to know anyone from NG in that way. (though some seem to enjoy that kind of attention.) Anything else? Well, most people in the General Forum are freaking queer as springtime, if that counts. lol

I can't help but feel that I possibly have some of the worst interests in terms of trying to find a girl who shares things in common with me. Newgrounds certainly has a horrible gender ratio and it was even proven on a questionnaire the NG staff wanted users to fill in. It may not be the most accurate form but it does show. Plus, half of the "female" users are likely to be bullshitting about their gender so make the ratio even more unbalanced. I don't want to think it that way but let's face it, this is fucking Newgrounds we're talking about.

And I tend to feel bad for the women that feel they are harassed/pestered by males. I'm not talking about here but rather anywhere on the internet. The internet should be bringing people closer but you've got jackasses ruining it for everyone, thus making a search to find someone online tougher than it already is. I'm not saying the internet should be the main/only place to try and date someone but it can be a tool to find someone who's right for you if done right. My sister met her partner on World of Warcraft and they've been engaged for 3 1/2 years now so good things do come out of meeting people online. Still, caution is always advised but I knew before attending the NG meets, it was reliable since not only would bad incidents spread on the site, I knew some individuals on Stickam chat back in the day and the use of webcam is one way to know you could potentially meet someone.

I mostly feel the right one for me is possibly somewhere on the internet. I've given the dump I live in many chances to find the one but my results have been bleak for the most part. I may have had her for a few weeks and she does live within a close-ish range but when I look at where I go and hardly get any luck, then perhaps I can find the one to love somewhere online. Not sure where exactly on the internet, though but it's a long road I possibly need to search in.

While there have been some successful relationships where both met on this site, that's really once in a blue moon and this site isn't really a source for finding someone.
There's two couples that met here, right? I always thought that a really neat story.

I won't list them down but I do know a few on here.

Maybe you can hang out at meets and get along with a lot of new people but to seek for a relationship, it's not the most ideal place.
I'm pretty sure Gagsy loves you...Or is it only your plushies she's after? :x

Nah, it's all about the plushies.

I'll admit that the only forum I even post on nowadays is the NG BBS and even that's showing a decline of activity.
But you're never allowed to leave, you understand that, right? :P

It sure has been. She even made a random tweet tonight to say that I'm awesome and I appreciated that compliment a lot. Now if only she could start accepting all the compliments that I gave/give to her. We're still on speaking terms over there and even on text so that's a good thing. I did like how she said she likes that she can share her favourite activity with me (that being listening to a CD that she has). Maybe a relationship won't happen with her now but at least there are ways that I can still make her happy.

On the other hand, a few months ago I didn't get off in time. But not because I was sleeping, but because I was reading. And the station I have to get off and the station before that look pretty similar. So I looked out of the window and thought I still have one station left... and then I realized my mistake. >_>

I think the story with my dad one Christmas was funny. He was so drunk he fell asleep on a bus and by the time he woke up, the bus already went through a whole circuit and asked the driver if the bus had even started.

That's the sad thing. It seems most of these festivals seem good at first but then they turn to shit after a while. This is why I much prefer standalone shows and never festivals.
W:O:A would still be good (but overpriced) if the people who went there would actually care for the music. But it seems like that about 50% of the visitors are just there to "have a look at it" and don't know or see a single band or even listen to any metal at all. For them, the festival is just a reason to whoop it up.

Heh, and if I went it would be because the lineup was damn good enough to travel all the way there.

Just take your time, the right one is out there.

Yeah, I like to be sure of that. It will be quite a puzzle to figure out who and where, though but I can't just sit there and do nothing.
