      Goodbye, 2015

      5 months ago

      Never thought I would be saying what I am about to say.


      Well this year has been a roller coaster of experiences, excitement and emotions.


      This time last year I would never have thought 2015 would have led me down the path I am currently on


      • I never thought I would have been able to attend Lets Play Live
      • I never thought I would have attended my third RTX let alone being a Guardian and also an RT Sidequest Spectre.
      • I didn't think I could love my Roosterspeak partners in crime even more than I did before, I seriously love each and every single one of you, I may not be around that much but you are always with me in my heart and mind <3
      • I never thought I would be currently in a loving and committed relationship with someone who means the world to me and who makes me smile every single day since the day I met him.



      Thank you to everyone who has been apart of my 2015 no matter how much of an interaction we had you changed my life this year and for the better.


      I am afraid I am going to have to leave this journal on a sad note and that's the fact that and some may know this but I will not be attending RTX 2016 and I believe the sun is setting on my time here, I'll still attend events when and how I can, I just need to follow a new path for my life. I'll still be available on twitter and Facebook and texts if you have my number.


      " Boss... you were right. It's not about changing the world. It's about doing our best to leave the world... the way it is. It's about respecting the will of others, and believing in your own"

      I love you all

      Great News

      9 months ago

      After years of struggling through life and a lot of personal issues, I can finally say this.


      I am happy, I am in a happy relationship with the most amazing guy ever and I have never been more happy.

      His name is Nathan Lewis and although he may not live in the same city as me, we are making it work and its going great so far.

      Thank you to everyone who has stuck by me for such a long time and helped me get to this point


      Love Karl

      Society

      1 year ago

      This past weekend I noticed something that bothered me about society this past weekend, when I was at work on Friday night I went outside to get some air and I noticed a young woman sitting on the floor crying her eyes out Not uncommon for me to see, people having too much to drink and what not but something about this seemed different so I decided to go up to her and see what was wrong, she had lost her friends that she was staying with and couldn't get in contact with them and being the first time she was in london she was scared.

      I decided to sit with her for a while since I had nothing to do while I waited for my delivery to show up, after about 10 minutes or so I had to go deal with something and as I was standing there several people had walked past saying such comments like "what a drama queen" "guess she must have had an arguement with her boyfriend" and "suppose she shouldn't get so drunk she'd get taken advantage of".

      I got visablly annoyed at this because since when did we as a society think it's ok to instead of make sure someone is ok that we judge them and make fun of them. Some people might say that I did it for a certain reason or I was trying it with or or what have you and honestly I couldn't give a damn what they think and if I had a sister or a daughter I would hope to god if something like that happened I'd like to think someone would be there to try and help them.

      1 year ago

      In under 48 hours I will be leaving my house and starting my journey to Austin TX, unfortunately I have to work before I go.

      My flight is Friday morning and then I shall be out of the country until March 7b1OGCn.gif
      4DON8JS.gif

      I haven't had an actually relax and do nothing holiday in years, I hope I will run into some of you this weekend to see @newbs and @juls run the Austin marathon or at Lets play live or RT sidequest the day after.

      I'll probably make another journal from the airport because i'll have nothing better to do.

      hopefully see you guys soon

        Oh crap sorry I never replied, my brain has just been going 100 miles an hour, you don't need to repay me with anything all I ask is that if a community member needs help with something you do the same things I would do, it's ok when ever we are both online, we have plenty of time to play :)

        I used the warthog gun on the cliff, cleared out a part then moved it there and cleared out another part and so on, just take your time and don't rush it, it doesnt matter how long it took for someone else because the AI might have spawned differently for you

        yea, mostly used thoughs as well, but the area i was in just got really annoying lol, it was the part after 2 phantoms and you can no longer take your warthog

        every mission I used either the Magnum, BR, DMR, carbine, lightrifle, supressor for up close and personal fights and sometimes the AR I never used the heavy hitting weapons like that

        thanks, i'll try that i've been using the Full Rod cannon for the elites and long rang for smaller enemies

        It took about 9-12 hours I want to say and for requiem stay back with long range weapons, use vehicle weapons as far as possible and use your cover
