HI AGAIN

I'm in one of those "fed up with everyone" moments, where you wish everyone would just fucking explode, you know? The reason: politics. Elections for pretty much everything representative were held this past Sunday. And by God, people just KNOW how to crap all over the place when it comes to politics. Seriously, how can everyone be so reductionist and downright stupid? Disappointing.

Anyway. Dream Theater concert tomorrow. Good stuff.

No. And there's no chance that I will ever use it. :/

It's free! Everyone has "smart"phones nowadays! Give it a shot, it's addictive and makes you extra non-productive.

Would it (unfortunately) shy the activity in this thread? I'll be back (eventually) to see the outcome of this idea.
Just post here more often instead! :P

See, I'm trying! It gets tricky though, as I am living an "adult" life, leaving home at 9 only to return 10 hours later. Meh, I'll use the "I was happy and didn't know it" cliché.

In the meanwhile, I've been doing good. I have an internship (apprenticeship?) job on the Ministry of Foreign Relations!
Why does this remind me of the Ministry of Truth? Say, does the slogan of your Minifore read something like "War is peace, Freedom is slavery, Ignorance is strength"? :P

Hahahah sort of, diplomacy sometimes involves lying and hypocrisy. Say for example, we condemn the Russian invasion on Ukraine, despite having them as a great economic and political partner on the BRICS bloc.

It's an Orwellian world. Our enemies may change, according to our convenience.

Also, I think "internship" is the right word here. Apprenticeship would be appropiate if you'd work full time there with a chance of being fully employed once you finnished your apprenticeship.

Meh, I wish it would be an apprenticeship then. The way to work full time on the Ministry is a long and suffering one.

And what have you all been up to? I'm rather nostalgic today with NG stuff :(
Not much. Daily depositing my Experience, getting about 3 B/P points a day, not posting much... mainly because I work full time as a software developer now. Not that much free time left for NG, heh.

Good stuff. That thing called "real life" gets the best of us :/

Do you like your job?

OMG HI!

BAHAMURRAY! I miss you, lad!

8 YEARS ON NEWGROUNDS (sort of)
That's still impressive.

It's something. I've been really active for four years, and dead for the other four. Says a lot about life and growing up and everything.

I'm feeling nostalgic, sorry.

Also, I had an idea the other day. I sort of miss you guys, you're my internet friends. And I would really like to keep in touch with you guys :(
Same to you. There's many here that I wish I was still in contact with but when they leave this site and I don't have them on contacts anywhere else, there's no way of speaking to them. This is why I always want to see if anyone on here can add me on Facebook. I would suggest Twitter but considering all the depressive stuff I put on there, it's best that no-one follows it.

I can tell so many names that I haven't heard of in so long: Auz, Coop, you, Haggard, gfox, NEVR, Hybrid-of-Souls, byteslinger, Gagsy, Casualty... there's more. It's unfair not to mention everyone, but anyway... "saudade" :(

I've just deactivated my Facebook (again). I can't stand people crapping over politics, so when the elections end in three weeks, I should be back. Really, it's depressing. Angering. Saddening. Anything but good.

And I followed you on twitter, back when I used it :/

Here's an idea: what are the chances of we creating a Whatsapp group? Do you guys use it? Would it (unfortunately) shy the activity in this thread? I'll be back (eventually) to see the outcome of this idea.
I don't use Whatsapp and have never really thought of trying it out.

It's a great substitute for regular texting. If your other friends use it, it's useful.

And what have you all been up to? I'm rather nostalgic today with NG stuff :(
Working and having my night outs, although work has distracted the night outs. Can't be out as late on Friday and if I'm out Saturday, the same rule applies. I make better do with Thursday and Sunday nights providing there's no extra work the following day. As much as I hate work taking some social life away, if I get good pay on some weeks then it will mean I'm getting closer and closer to having the funds for a new laptop.

ADULTHOOD, YAAAY :(

And do you still use that same laptop with Windows Vista and all?

I rarely take to politics since both sides, while some might argue and mean well, have a load of other negative effects that might take place sadly.

Anyway. Dream Theater concert tomorrow. Good stuff.

It's depressing that I can't hang out with friends as often as we used to.

There are some friends that I see all the time but then there are those that I rarely get to see which is a damn shame. I always say to keep in touch over the internet.

Sure is. There's only six months left for me until I can no longer level up. Gotta admit, I will miss reaching new levels once every while. At this point I wish they would consider adding more levels.

I'm fucking jelly. They're one band I still need to see. After seeing so many bands I've wanted to see, Dream Theater are still one that I am in need of seeing at some point. I'm hoping for their next world tour which is when I'll see them. I'll go on a fucking loan if I have to just to see them.

Of all the jobs I've had, I've never been so depressed with one like this before. There's a lot of factors that's made it hardly enjoyable for me. For starters, the location is terrible for me, particularly when Saturday mornings it's either my parents give me a lift or I have to pay 20 fucking quid on a taxi and that's a fifth of my wages for the week. That's the first issue with the job.

I miss you too. Keep in mind, I am still on Steam but to play video games is at a minimal use due to my laptop performance but hopefully that won't be for much longer.

That's still impressive.
It's something. I've been really active for four years, and dead for the other four. Says a lot about life and growing up and everything.

That's just life. Even I have mostly moved on from this site. I say mostly since I'm not as active as I used to be in the old days. Sure, I still login daily and have kept up with my depositing but it's not like in the days where I did shit tons of icons for the site. To be honest, my development with life has been for the better. I've been going outside a lot more often over the last 18 months and I have managed to make a lot of new friends over that time. Even now things are still developing as I meet more people which is good for me since eventually I gotta meet the one from all of this.

I've just deactivated my Facebook (again). I can't stand people crapping over politics, so when the elections end in three weeks, I should be back. Really, it's depressing. Angering. Saddening. Anything but good.

Best you can do with that kind of stuff is to unfollow those who talk about politics. You can easily unfollow someone and not unfriend them so it works wonders.

And I followed you on twitter, back when I used it :/

That was my old account. I am on a new account but I am considering abandoning Twitter. I rarely make use out of it nowadays and most of what I need to catch up on is on Facebook anyway.

I recently started up Tumblr again but with only following four people I'm not getting much out of it at this time. I'm hoping maybe I can meet new people over there who are local (or at least somewhat nearby) since I did it before but unfortunately stopped talking to a few certain people to the point where I resorted to deleting my original account.

I don't use Whatsapp and have never really thought of trying it out.
It's a great substitute for regular texting. If your other friends use it, it's useful.

Facebook tells me not many of my friends even use it. Oh well.

And do you still use that same laptop with Windows Vista and all?

Yep, it's still that piece of shit but I really do think after Halloween it will be time for me to finally get a new one. Granted, it would leave me with hardly any money for Christmas shopping but I'll have to build the money back up with getting extra hours and hopefully having my working tax credit sorted out by then.

Leveled up. Am now level 35.
Can't tell if this is a good thing or bad thing.
The good - I have more voting power and well.....other good things that go along with being this high of a level.
The bad - This kinda shows I have too much time on my hands.....same with my having 13,500+ posts.

40k experience points! I also noticed I'm only 41 points behind #50, which is surprising considering the fact that I am ranked #52. The journey from #100 to the top 50 has been such a long one. I entered the top 100 in October 2009(!) and I've missed like 1 or 2 deposits since.

There's this one couple, we don't see anymore. Because, everytime we go out meeting other friends, they don't have time. And every time THEY go out, we don't have time. It's so annoying.

- Am drunkish, ignore any possible typos.

Like I heard the other day: "The shit is the same, only the flies that will change".

But that's not even what bothers me the most. The people talking about it, friendships getting sour and all the hate that floats around these debates on social medias and such. Many preach for more tolerance, though it only seems that it's only more tolerant if there's an agreement. Otherwise it's a cesspool.

Anyway. Dream Theater concert tomorrow. Good stuff.
Would love to go see them or Mindless Self Indulgence live one day.

Are they the band with all the juggolos and magnets and stuff?

Are you changing your "real" name to match your gender? I had a few known people who legally changed their IDs to match their gender, despite being bureaucratic. At least politics is making some progress towards this, though it isn't nearly enough.

I'm doing good. Nearly one whole year in a serious relationship with my girlfriend. Halfway through graduation. Shitty-paying/great-learning internship. Though I'm getting kinda fatty :(

ooooh you gotta see them. it was the second time I saw them live. I miss Portnoy's drumming, but Mangini does well. Hop on a bus to London the next time they come around UK, it's worth it

where are you working at, anyway?

And hell, I try to make the best out of the shitty situations I have at my internship. The excessive demand of stuff I have to do everyday only makes me think "goddammit I want to finish everything asap" amd feel like a champion afterwards!

But yeah, location issues are pretty big. And warking saturday mornings? Damn, that's an ungrateful joobie :/

BAHAMURRAY! I miss you, lad!
I miss you too. Keep in mind, I am still on Steam but to play video games is at a minimal use due to my laptop performance but hopefully that won't be for much longer.

THAT laptop!

Heck, I wish I could have a beer with all of you. I should visit Europe again in 2015, though nothing is confirmed.

It's something. I've been really active for four years, and dead for the other four. Says a lot about life and growing up and everything.

Do you still have your User of the whole fucking Year trophy? Hahahah that was a great one.

And honestly, I'm glad I moved on. All those years of reading "go outside and get a life" to other people on the BBS... well, I have a life now. I have friends, I have personal "achievements", whether I can call it like that or not. I have stuff, you know. It isn't just sitting around this same very desk everyday and lurking around the internet the whole day. I'm a busy dude!

I've just deactivated my Facebook (again). I can't stand people crapping over politics, so when the elections end in three weeks, I should be back. Really, it's depressing. Angering. Saddening. Anything but good.
Best you can do with that kind of stuff is to unfollow those who talk about politics. You can easily unfollow someone and not unfriend them so it works wonders.

Guten tag...? It's night time here, I don't know how to say "good evening/night" in German :c

You need to capitalize the second word. "Guten Tag". "Tag" is a noun and therefore must be capitalized. :P
Good evening: Guten Abend.
Good night: Gute Nacht.

But if you are in the northern parts of germany, you can forget about all this crap and just say "Moin". Whether it's morning, lunch time, afternoon, evening OR night!
"Moin" basically means: "Hello there Sir (or Madam). I wish you a pleasant $time_of_day! I hope your family is well and I also whish you good health and a long life!". But since we are kind of tight-lipped up in the north, we shorten that a little bit.

I know what you mean. Where on earth are those people that seriously say that Angela Merkel does a good job? >:(
I'm not an expert on German intern politics, but I can kind of say that she does a good job on foreign policy hahahah

Only because there really isn't any competition out there.

... because you don't have Whatsapp yet! It's missing an extra icon on yer phone ;P

Nah, I'm passing on this one...

How many hours do you need to work weekly, minimum?

40 hours a week. But at least we get 30 days off a year, plus the bank holidays. But the evangelic north gets fucked really bad. In the federal state where I work, we have 9 bank holidays. In the southern (catholic) parts, they have 13!
Oh well, I'm neither evangelic nor catholic, but those 4 days really suck.

It's an Orwellian world. Our enemies may change, according to our convenience.
But we have always been at war with Eurasia!

Maybe those guys that test products like mattresses have a better work life... I also wonder if those people that test mattresses are the same that test the quality of condoms?

Yeah, it's that. You angry over it? As for me, my level did not change via the Halloween update. Shame that but oh well.

Also, why do I need Whatsapp when I have ICQ, MSN, AIM, hell even SKYPE? ;)

I can give you that on Skype but who's even using the other three nowadays? lel.

There's this one couple, we don't see anymore. Because, everytime we go out meeting other friends, they don't have time. And every time THEY go out, we don't have time. It's so annoying.

Bah, it's one of them. I've had that with a few nights out of mine. Whenever I'm there, certain people aren't but when they are, I'm not there.

Say no more. I feel bad enough already. :P

After seeing so many bands I've wanted to see, Dream Theater are still one that I am in need of seeing at some point. I'm hoping for their next world tour which is when I'll see them. I'll go on a fucking loan if I have to just to see them.
ooooh you gotta see them. it was the second time I saw them live. I miss Portnoy's drumming, but Mangini does well. Hop on a bus to London the next time they come around UK, it's worth it

I don't need to go all the way to London to see them. They always play in Manchester for their tours so next time will be my chance. I know a Dream Theater fanatic so being with someone is definite, haha.

Of all the jobs I've had, I've never been so depressed with one like this before. There's a lot of factors that's made it hardly enjoyable for me. For starters, the location is terrible for me, particularly when Saturday mornings it's either my parents give me a lift or I have to pay 20 fucking quid on a taxi and that's a fifth of my wages for the week. That's the first issue with the job.
where are you working at, anyway?

At a retail store.

But yeah, location issues are pretty big. And warking saturday mornings? Damn, that's an ungrateful joobie :/

I'd be more content with it if it was reachable via public transport but it's not for me. Sundays I'm fine with since I get there at 9 which is a lot easier, actually. I often get a lift from someone to get there but if they can't do it for whatever reason, at least I have a bus to get there as a backup plan.

I miss you too. Keep in mind, I am still on Steam but to play video games is at a minimal use due to my laptop performance but hopefully that won't be for much longer.
THAT laptop!

Yes, that fucking laptop. It's really been a burden to me for most of the time that I've had it and at this point it's really hanging by a thread.

Heck, I wish I could have a beer with all of you. I should visit Europe again in 2015, though nothing is confirmed.

If you happen to do so, come to Liverpool. :)

That's just life. Even I have mostly moved on from this site. I say mostly since I'm not as active as I used to be in the old days. Sure, I still login daily and have kept up with my depositing but it's not like in the days where I did shit tons of icons for the site. To be honest, my development with life has been for the better. I've been going outside a lot more often over the last 18 months and I have managed to make a lot of new friends over that time. Even now things are still developing as I meet more people which is good for me since eventually I gotta meet the one from all of this.
Do you still have your User of the whole fucking Year trophy? Hahahah that was a great one.

Of course, why would I not have it? Sure, I tend to forget from time to time that I have it sitting at home but it's still there and shall remain with me.

And honestly, I'm glad I moved on. All those years of reading "go outside and get a life" to other people on the BBS... well, I have a life now. I have friends, I have personal "achievements", whether I can call it like that or not. I have stuff, you know. It isn't just sitting around this same very desk everyday and lurking around the internet the whole day. I'm a busy dude!

That's good man. I am like that myself nowadays but I still give myself time at home. I have to do that for half of the days since if I'm out everyday, I'll be fucking bankrupt in no time thanks to booze and ciggies. I keep my outside schedule no more than four days a week but with the coming events I may have to reduce it to just twice a week.

Best you can do with that kind of stuff is to unfollow those who talk about politics. You can easily unfollow someone and not unfriend them so it works wonders.
But man, that would mean unfollowing a LOT of people. Even some good friennds of mine can get pretty low on debating standards.

Ah damn, that's a shame. Maybe just mark those posts as "I don't want to see this." to try and give Facebook the hint that you don't want any political shite on your news feed but that's probably not effective in the least.

Yep, it's still that piece of shit but I really do think after Halloween it will be time for me to finally get a new one. Granted, it would leave me with hardly any money for Christmas shopping but I'll have to build the money back up with getting extra hours and hopefully having my working tax credit sorted out by then.
I remember when you bought it and you were so flattered by it hahahah (except when it kind of toasted after a few months of usage due to overheating :/ )

Yeah, and it wasn't until like six months later or so where I became unhappy with it. Sure, it could be a rinse and repeat with my next laptop but that one will decay and age as well. There's no escape from gadgets going bust at some point. I'm hoping with the new laptop I get it will have a much lasting effect and will be more satisfying. My sister has had her laptop for a few years now and hasn't had all the problems that I've had with a Toshiba laptop.

Leveling up to a newly created halloween icon is somewhat special. But Cthulhu cannot be GOLDEN! :/

I chat with people regularly via ICQ. But haven't used MSN or AIM in ages, haha. But since I use pidgin it's not THAT hard to simply log in... ;)
However, most of the time I use Jabber.

So yeah... really no reason to start using Whatsapp.

Bah, it's one of them. I've had that with a few nights out of mine. Whenever I'm there, certain people aren't but when they are, I'm not there.

There just HAS to be a word for that...

I'm now at 35,000 EXP.
I'll also have my 12-year anniversary on this site in just a little while.

With both of those in sync, it's a good time for me to retire from the site, honestly, not like I did much outside of depositing the fact few years. Was a fun ride.

Like I heard the other day: "The shit is the same, only the flies that will change".

Well, that's a true saying to live by in regards to most political issues I've seen.

But that's not even what bothers me the most. The people talking about it, friendships getting sour and all the hate that floats around these debates on social medias and such. Many preach for more tolerance, though it only seems that it's only more tolerant if there's an agreement. Otherwise it's a cesspool.

That or idiots will try to invoke a slippery slope fallacy, which in this day and age is incredibly childish of any person to be arguing in regards to with some issues. It's more of a laughing thing. :P

Anyway. Dream Theater concert tomorrow. Good stuff.
Would love to go see them or Mindless Self Indulgence live one day.
Are they the band with all the juggolos and magnets and stuff?

Fuck no. XD They're Nu-Metal / Synth Rock. The lead singer has pink liberty spikes for a haircut and has a side project called The Left Rights. Most of the songs are "calling you out" or "calling me out" or "make fun of me time." Gets me pumped when playing games or makes me want to sing along. :)

Are you changing your "real" name to match your gender? I had a few known people who legally changed their IDs to match their gender, despite being bureaucratic. At least politics is making some progress towards this, though it isn't nearly enough.

Yea, legal name change will be ahead as well. Why keep the old name I don't like or have ever felt is really my name?

I'm doing good. Nearly one whole year in a serious relationship with my girlfriend. Halfway through graduation. Shitty-paying/great-learning internship. Though I'm getting kinda fatty :(

Almost half a year with my wonderful girlfriend, shitty paying job, saving up to move out, going back to college in the spring, etc etc.

It seems I missed my 10 year NG anniversary earlier this year :(

I'm guessing medal points are only considereda milestone at each 10k increment, and medal count per 1k increment? Hit 25k points and 1,5k medals today, see.
