      It was something about me having to Guard some dude named Ian.

    • So, uh, it's been a while...

      3 years ago

      Drekr

      The last time I posted on here, it was over a year ago and I was very, very drunk indeed.

      To get this out of the way:

      Q: Why did the three month hiatus to concentrate on your exams turn into nearly two years of silence?
      A: Because I make poor life choices.

      Really, there's not much reason why I couldn't have been posting here, but the more time I spent away the harder I found it to motivate myself to come back, for one reason or another. This eventually spread to much of the rest of my web presence, as anyone who saw my many failed attempts on becoming active on Twitter may have noticed. The most I managed was to keep a semi-regular presence on TeamSpeak, but nowhere near as much as I would have liked.

      That is not to say, however, that I abandoned RT completely. I've still kept up to date on their content, attended the last couple of RvB:UKs, even flew halfway around the world for RTX.

      As for the rest of it? I managed to get through high school with grades that were, well, let's say 'good enough', and somehow blagged my way into the University of Sheffield, on track for a masters degree in Aerospace Engineering. The course even has the third year take place in America, so maybe I'll be able to interact more with you guys and keep a reasonable sleep schedule at the same time, two things that are a bit mutually exclusive right now.

      That time I decided cosplaying obscure characters was worth walking through a major financial district in a onesie.

      10394467_10203749888021246_1096499910168

      That time I was apparently quite concerned about @Eoin taking a photo.

      999356_4450639483842_479138110_n.jpg?oh=

      That time I realised my karmic destiny to carry on the glorious legacy of Top Gun.

      Br6hiEBCAAAFv41.jpg:large

      That time me and @Sibwarra decided not to try our luck with the very large bouncers in Austin.

      BsKE1ZKCQAAOEEk.jpg

      That time I tried very hard not to cry at animated dragons and drowned my sorrows in food far too good for a cinema.

      BsXTJfCCYAEspUr.jpg:large

      That time I found the Gordough's super-secret WiFi.

      BsDJfF4CAAAZSLB.jpg:large

      That time I got bevs on the river.

      So, yeah. Hopefully finally sitting down and writing this (about four months later than I intended to) marks the start of me being more active again on here, even twitter if I can manage it.

      Either that or I'll see you guys in 2020.

      Do any of you guys have a PS3? Due to recent events it's the only platform I can game on at the moment and it'd be nice to interact with you guys some more as I try to break out of the three month Internet hiatus I inadvertently slipped into. Drop your PSN ID in the comments if you're interested in playing a few games together.

      It seems like this is the time I finally get around to writing a journal, a mere month after the last. Unfortunately a string of exams throughout January kinda negated any chance I had at coming online for any productive period of time, but now that's over I'M BACK BABY, and as a way to get myself active on the Internet again I decided to finally take the plunge a get a twitter account.

      Some of you may remember from a journal a while back that the username Drekr was taken on there, but I've managed to find an alternative in the somehow untaken @Going_Cakeless

      If you guys can drop your twitter handles in the comments it would be appreciated, and much quicker than trying to find you all manually. Follow me back if you want, I'll try not to be too annoying.

      EDIT 05/03/2015: Twitter was changed to @DrekrGB some time back, after I realised that a meme is not a good basis for an online identity.

      It's a thing I spent today inventing and practicing.

      Basically... there's now a thing as Crunk Jesus.

      Then I got access to the wine cupboard sometime around midafternoon and the creative process kinda went downhill after that.

      I finally got off school for the holidays today, so of course I feel like death would be a sweet release at this point.

      The first three things I did when I got up this morning were literally:

      1) Fall over
      2) Throw up
      3) Fall over again

      DUDE FUCKING GET ON YOU BITCH SERIOUSLY no rush though.

    • SirPenguinIV

      5 years ago

      Alrighty, tomorrow, you up for the FIRST EVER recording of the Train Wreck podcast? I was thinking around 2, but Eoin can't make it at such a time - will around 5-6 be alright? Also, I think it's the three of us and Lana, and possibly Mal if he can make it, reckon we should invite any others?

    • SirPenguinIV

      5 years ago

      Ok, Eoin and I are sorting stuff out about the poddy (he reckons he'll be done tonight, too bad for you).

      I've figured out a way to host it on Tumblr by redirecting it to a DropBox file and using the Tumblr RSS feed, and we were brainstorming renames for the podcast. It's tricky though, all I've come up with is The Peas-in-a-Podcast.

      • Drekr

        5 years ago

        I should know better than to make a bet 20 minutes before going out until 2am.



    • SirPenguinIV

      5 years ago

      Get on, you penis, we're all on here already.

    • SirPenguinIV

      5 years ago

      Dude, sorry for not doing the last podcast with you, I wanted to get one out before I left and it was planned the evening before (i.e. 2 am).

      We should be able to do another one soon, you up for it?

      (Also, your presence was sorely missed, don't you worry. Also also, you excited for results day?) Also also also, once I finish my next book, I'll start Homestuck again)

      • Drekr

        5 years ago

        AND NO PONIES EITHER

        *weeps quietly*

      • SirPenguinIV

        5 years ago

        Ah, good, I thought y'all may be planning another, that's a good sign!

        Oh dear, are you going insane? Both no Homestuck and Results day to content with, huh?

      • Drekr

        5 years ago

        Yeah, I think we've got one planned for Friday so Mal can join in.

        And Homestuck's in a three-week plus break at the moment. 24 days in, the fandom is slowly going insane.

        And I'm fucking terrified for results day.

    • SirPenguinIV

      5 years ago

      I'm going up to Liverpool this weekend, so unless it's on Friday, a recording is seeming unlikely.

      Have I mentioned how we're super professional on how regularly we record and such?

      • Drekr

        Dude, we are so fucking professional. There's so many binders and secretaries up in this shit it's unreal.

      Hello =) I know you don't know me but i noticed your profile from various rp groups and i noticed you like Skyrim so i was wondering if u would be interested in a Skyrim based rp =) I noticed u are in a 'Skyrim based rp group' but that rp seems to not be going anywhere no offense and i sincerely mean no offense against it while me and a good friend Brian who i believe u know, have been working very hard on our own rp so i was wondering if u'd be interested in joining =) Of course if u'd rather stay in urs and wait for it to maybe start up and come to life then that is completely understandable as well, i am just extending a friendly invitation you can choose to accept or not
