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.
Jeez, as if you need any more BS right now. There's not much I can do through the internet, but just let me say that I'm feeling for ya right now. Well, I suppose all I can do is reply to this post of yours. ;)
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.
I'd take some of that money and buy yourself something you've had your eye on. At least a case of Guiness or 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.
Cool you at least got to hang with friends. And you already know my opinion on kids, so I wont go there. ^^
Sorry for the four-parter guys.
You've been going to some shit lately; if talking about it here helps you vent, then by all means go for it.
Too much. This took me forever.
A four-parter isn't to be taken lightly! :P
Well would ya look at that? Let's see if I make you do it again!
Eh, it's nice to have it more accurate.
I sent byteslinger a PM today and she sounded optimistic about it. Now we wait...
I'll admit that perhaps I was a little too overconfident with some of the things I've been saying here.
It's an easy trap to fall into, when you're feeling the effects of a new relationship (especially your first one). That's why I was kinda cautioning you against making any drastic decisions before letting things play out for a while, though I'm sure it's nothing you needed telling. Any advice I thought of giving you at the time seemed really obvious, yet people tend not to think with their heads when they really should be sometimes, you know?
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.
Is he still depositing? I had just assumed he left NG totally. (Though I did see gfoxcook, gfox and gfoxclock on the recent logs on NGlog not too long ago. Needless to say that was a surprise.
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.
It was a real shocker to me when I first came back to the site. Of course I start getting involved in the conversation when things are at their lowest point ever around this thread. -__- But I suppose if I wasn't here it would just be you and Haggard chatting with a little Coop sprinkled on top. :P Odyssic leaving was really what made it seem like a ghost town around here to me, even though he didn't partake in discussion much (at least not since I returned.) *sigh* well, at least there are still users coming here with rank-ups and milestones. This has got to be the greatest thread in NG history; over 12 years old and coming up on it's 3,000th page, no less. Pretty amazing when you think about it.
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.
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!
Definitely, and it works everything, all at once, too. I can honestly say that I've never been so damn hungry as I am after a good long swim. I guess these days I'll just have to settle for hiking, which is something I plan on doing a lot this summer. I've found a site that shows all the major peaks in my area; I'm going to try to climb 2 a month -lets see how that goes. (And no, I don't live in the Rockies or anything; the mountains around my area are pretty tame in comparison.) lol
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.
I would highly recommend weight training -it just makes you feel good, especially when you first start, as you gain strength quickly at first. I'll tell ya, there's nothing quite like reaching a goal and knowing that you're stronger than you were just a couple weeks ago. If you've got a place to go, give it a try and stick with it.
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!
I was actually talking to an old NG friend today about (playing) tennis. It's one of those sports that I've always wanted to try, but never did (mainly due to not having proper equipment.) Racquetball is another similar sport that looks really fun. Anyway, the only sport that I've played as an adult is badminton, which I am actually pretty damn good at. (I'm not ashamed to admit it, dammit!) lol
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.
Yeah, but the social media is different, though. When you're venting in a place like that, people you know are going to see it and it really makes public things that should be kept between you two. I think that's a little different than chatting with some guy who has never met any of the people involved and lives on another continent entirely. :P
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.
Understandable. Sometimes I think I wouldn't wish the General forum on anybody.
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.
It's been largely the same for me, really, though I can't tell you how many of my friends I had tried to get into NG, but none ever took to it. I always thought how awesome it would be to see your RL buddy listed on the wall of users browsing the BBS, or to say "dude, did you see that fucked up thread last night?" when meeting at school the next day. Of course this was all years ago, mind you, when I was a young and impressionable noob. Now almost 9 years later I'm just an old, jaded noob. :P
