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.

Here's an idea: what are the chances of we creating a Whatsapp group? Do you guys use it?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?

It's funny, I'm in work again yet my job is making me more depressed than I was when I was unemployed. I guess there's no way of winning for me.
Jobs can be depressing, but hey, money drives the world. It's a necessary evil, we only have to make the least worst out of it (or am I being too pessimist/nihilistic here?)

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?

24 years of German reunification!
Sweet! 24 years of the end of a polarization. Man, International Relations theorists and writers love to talk about this. So much I'm actually starting to dislike some of these topics :(
