I never expected to hear this news, I mean "expected" is the keyword here. No one expects to lose a friend, acquaintance, loved one out of the blue, Sure, I never met Monty in person but as community all we share a love, or bond with each other, and to those entertain us. I would like to think we are all Family and losing anyone of us is blow to our hearts... I guess what what I'm trying to say is thank you Monty for everything you brought to this world, and that we will miss you. <3

Jeez, has it been that long since a friend of mine decided to show me a random internet series called RvB: Reconstruction? I swear it feels like it was forever ago that I went to youtube try to find more of this awesome show, and to marathon through the first five seasons in less than a month! I believe it was only then that I decided to search for this company "Roosterteeth" on Google to find a this peculiar place.
To be honest, I think I lurked and creeped around without an account for awhile, (especially around the Staff profiles)
After feeling a bit more comfortable with the idea of joining the website, in my head, my brain was at work thinking up a username that would define and represent me in vast online community, one that that I could be proud of, and maybe told the people who saw it something about me.
Instead, my scumbag brain cracked under pressure and popped out the username........ hatesgriff23. Facepalm. No seriously. "That's the best you come up with!?!", I internally yelled at my Brain. Not only am I insulting people who adore Grif, Geoff Ramsey, I spelled his name wrong with two "F"s
Now everyone together now. FACEPALM!
But where did the time go?
Well, one of the few things I remember doing was post a journal, but not any journal, a poll specifically asking about which console they prefered. Of course me being a naive newb of the website and the internet in general, I was expecting some sort of response. It never came, not surprisingly.
Fast forward a year, the Golden age. (For me at least. lol)
By then I had many friends here :
MrPatriotic, now known as Box.
and many more. I with disneyjedi87 and TbErNaNd were busy spamming you guys with motivational posters from the RT shorts ( I swear that they wrote and filmed all shorts after season one to make it impossible for us three to come up with posters! It's a CONSPIRACY MAN!) so much so that we made a group for it. We shared laughs, tragedies, adventures, hardships on various forums threads, journals, group posts and hell I played a few games over xbox live with a few of you.
Fast forward to now, this place has changed so much since I've gone. I mean, I would check in now and again but never really do anything. Heck I don't even know how many of the people that I listed are still active on this site, let alone all the ones I didn't.
Well anyway, I guess I just wanted to say hello to those who are still here and to kinda say that I miss this place and you guys.
P.S. If anyone ever, and I mean EVER needs a buddy in Borderlands or Borderlands 2 on the xbox 360, let me know cuz Im not sure if Ive said this... I LOVE THEM!!!!! Seriously. I will put the disk in the tray at the drop of a pin! lol.
P.S.S It feels so strange to how Achievement Hunter grown and changed through the years, and hopefully they're here for many more to come.
P.S.S.S Sorry for missing words, I should go get that check out.... meh *shrug*.

It is complete. Well, it has been for a while now. I got the bandages removed on Tuesday, and the only restriction I have is no physical exertion, and I can't lift over 20 lbs for a month.
Knowing myself, I'll probably forget at times and do stuff anyway.
P.S The person who said, "Laughter is the best medicine" should be punched in the face because laughing was one the WORST thing ever the days after the operation. And, what made it worse was the fact that it was a vicious cycle. Something funny would make laugh, the sharp pain from the contracting muscles makes me laugh more, I try to suppress my laughter, which just makes laugh quietly even more, in turn causes more pain, which causes me to giggle at the irony at the situation of it all. IT WAS HORRIBLE, self inflicted torture! X[
Looking back though, it's still kinda funny to me. lol

Today at 1pm (PST), I will undergo surgery to remove my Gal Bladder. Why? My mom side of the family has a knack for developing stones in there, which causes painful cramping when you eat something (i.e Tomato, but surprisingly not Ketchup.) that causes your gal bladder to contract.
More info here.
So, its not life threatening, but really annoying.
Got to go!

It's been a while hasn't it. So much happened within that time I wouldn't know where to start.... Oh! (grabs airsoft revolver and shoots at a conveniently hanging target, covered with topics.) Hits:Mass Effect.
Damn. Why couldn't be a more relevant like....um.... like...err.. SOOO Mass Effect.
I barely completed the trilogy 2 days ago. I know, the latest game came out ages ago, what the heck were you doing all this time!?! In all honestly, I playing Borderlands 2, a sequel to a game that I logged over 800 hours. <.< (I don't have a problem, I swear!) So, if I played the first one for that long you could guess that I would put in some time for the newer one. If you guessed yes, then good job. If not... you get a star for trying.
Back on topic. The bigger factor of why it took me so long to finish the series was because, when the third came out, I had just borrowed the first one from a friend. I played it twice because my first playthrough went perfect but, I romanced Liara. Some of you who played the game are wondering whats wrong with Liara? Nothing. I just wanted to see how the romance arc would go with Tali in the second one. (For those who don't know what I'm talking about, Tali cannot be "romanced" if you import a character from the first game who had a relationship with another character)
Once finished with that, I moved on to the second game. I spent less time with this one because I got lucky and made the right choices and had all team members loyalty for the suicide mission the first time. Yay, no one died!
I wish I could say the same for the third game. Not that it was my fault, story arcs had more control on who lived and died in this game. As for the endings, I never got to see the original ones for myself because I had downloaded the extended cut DLC by the time I finished this game. (Indoctrination Theory is the greatest thing ever.)
I think this long-winded excuse of a "Hello" has gone on long enough. Kaybye!
P.S Yes, I know there were more relative topics, such as Halo 4, Presidential election MLP Season 3 etc.
P.P.S I don't care what anyone says, the Mako is awesome.
P.P.P.S. Please excuse missing words.

Hi whoever is reading this!
I just got back from the orthodontist where they have begun removing my braces. Today they removed the palate expander from the roof of my mouth, and on the next appointment, everything else comes off!
In other good but lame news, I finished my report on technology addiction (gosh, I'm such a hypocrite) a few days ago, and all that's left is to complete is my fieldwork. My fieldwork if anyone is wondering is, to survey at least 100 people with a survey I have created. [sarcasm]Yay!![/sarcasm]
I wish I could play/interact with you guys over XBL more often, heck I think I should make a checklist!
Disneyjedi: If he ever goes live. lol!
Feel free to send an invite even if I forgot you on the list.
