LIFE STUFFJust wrote a break-up email addressed to the job I interned with for two semesters. The reason? Because I'm switching my major from Computer Engineering to Communications (which should just feel immensely easier at this point) because I've done engineering long enough to know that I hate it and I'm going to pursue a career in major sports media because that's something I would actually enjoy rather than something I do because I'm kind of expected to and there's more money to made there.
It feels like I have both given up on something and made a very grown-up decision to do what's best for my own happiness. It probably HAS been both.
EDIT: are you fucking kidding me, I can't embed .pngs? EDIT AGAIN: okay wait maybe I can? wtf website
Uploaded a couple of screenshots I found in an old folder of some shit that happened on RvB.
I wonder if gfunk Geoff still buys sponsorships?
Remember if you tried to scroll down without clicking out of the Mod This box, it would just give one of everything?
This always bugged me. No idea if it's still like that.
HURRR FIRST POST
This was a pretty big deal when it happened. I know because I took a screenshot.
And here's DSchneider asking to be a moderator in his first ever post!
A couple of ghosty mod points!
At some point, I was Alsace's son!
fuckin' 1337, bro
Remember that time the user count just kept climbing and climbing?
Back when you could collect mod points, I had a bunch of them!
Not sure what the occasion was to screenshot this, but it reminds me of a time some girl and some dude were in some thread, and at some point she said she would post a picture of her in her bra if she got 50 mods on one post (I don't think she was a karmawhore, I think she just said it to make a point about something). That dude couldn't afford it, but I was like 14 and that idea sounded awesome, so I dropped 50 Zings with the comment, "your move." Pretty sure it worked, too. No idea who was involved at this point.
Also, this shit was popping up around the internet for a while.
This becomes cooler once you remember that only sponsors could (can?) check their stats.
Hey, here's a better view of my obscene mod count, right before it got to full-blown ridiculous.
Kind of neat to go back. I bet I have more old RvB community stuff (BUT CERTAINLY NOT RVBTV5, AND THEREFORE NO ONE SHOULD QUESTION WHY NOBODY HAS ANIMATED THAT WHEN WIZ5 DID MOST OF THE HEAVY LIFTING ALREADY, OH NO CERTAINLY NOT THAT) and if I come across anything else people would find interesting, I'll probably post it here.
(NOT RVBTV5 THOUGH BECAUSE I MOST DEFINITELY DO NOT HAVE MOST OR ALL OF THE PROJECT FILES FOR THAT SO SHUT UP WHY WOULD YOU EVEN BRING THAT UP)
super magic edit again: Okay I did find more stuff but I already uploaded this shit tonight and ask me again later.
Oh jesus. I just found a big folder on my external HDD of screenshots of interesting things I've taken on RvB. Some of these are hilarious to remember, some retarded. I will post these at some point in the future.
