      No, not the karma that comes around and bites you in the ass. The karma level on the site is what I'm talking about. I've been sitting at 99% to the next level for a while now, and I've been active on the site; commenting, posting, etc., etc., yet it remains at 99%.

      The funny thing is, I went from 96 to 99 in almost a blink of an eye, yet I can't quite get that last percent. It feels like I'm downloading something, or burning a disc. It gets up to 99% in no time, but it takes that last one percent 100x longer than the rest of the file combined.

      Or otherwise known as why I'm broke and have no free time.

      It seems that with each year of college, I have less money available, and less free time to spend on things I enjoy.

      I budget my money very tightly, but yet, I seem to only fall further and further behind. Part-time jobs are not able to cover the gap that is being generated. If anyone has any ideas of making quick money, I'd be happy to hear them.

      As for less free time, this goes along with the working. It seems to me that the longer some people are in school, the more time they have...ei, a college senior has more free time than a college freshman. Personally, I have the exact opposite happening. I had more free time when I first started going to school than I do now. It just seems discouraging. Maybe it's just a relative thing, and I do have free time, but it just feels as though I don't.

      You are a Generous Builder.

      You are a Builder
      *You are detail-oriented, cautious, and practical, making you a BUILDER.
      *You are excellent at focusing on the concrete, functional elements of things, so you're good at making things happen.
      *Pursuing novel ways of doing things helps you to be efficient.
      *You're great to have on a team, as you understand how things work and don't let your ego get in the way.
      *You're perceptive, down-to-earth, and realistic.
      *You don't see a need to commit to a set routine or schedule—you'd rather improvise a little.
      *Although you may doubt yourself sometimes, you have the skills and the curiosity to pursue broader adventures.
      *You like to consider a lot of information before making big decisions, and you think about that information in realistic, thorough ways.
      *You don't concern yourself with flashy styles or surface appearances—you're far too sensible for that.
      *You tend to believe that things happen for a reason, and that not everything is under our control.

      You are Generous
      *Your awareness of those around you, along with your nuanced perceptions of the world at large, makes you the GENEROUS person that you are.
      *You value time to yourself and understand how rich your private world can be—you know that you don't have to go wild to have a good time.
      *You are excited and energized by ideas and often enjoy things more through observation than through experience.
      *This tendency gives you an appreciation for different perspectives and opinions about the world.
      *Being as aware of others as you are doesn't mean you find it easy to trust them immediately—this is something that happens more slowly for you.
      *Despite this, you are aware of the complexities of many situations and are reluctant to pass judgments on others.
      *Although you have fewer friendships than some people, those that you have are meaningful and are important to you.
      *You value spending time alone—it is while reflecting on the world around you that you often learn something new about yourself or begin to understand something that's been bothering you.

      Just got back from Put-in-Bay, OH for a weekend camping trip.

      Came home and had Dinner with my parents...grilled foods and such.

      Now I have nothing to do.

      The person I was supposed to hang out with tonight decided to ditch me...I should have seen that coming.

      For clarification purposes, the person was a she, and yes I did have feelings for her.

      Note, past tense, had.

      Long story short, she's a liar and an adulteress...she's interested in a married man, and he is interested in her.

      I give up on relationships.

      Happy Independence Day.

    • Snow, where are you?

      ssjvegetto87

      For the first time in a very, very long time, I can say I'm looking forward to winter. I'll be going home for break, which is only a couple of weeks, but that's nice, plus, I just got my gear.

      After subtle hints for the past 6 years, I conned convinced my parents into buying me a snowboard and related gear. Right now it's sitting at my parents' house, else I would have pics up already, but I'm going home this weekend for Guard Duty, so if I think about it after setting up the bindings, I may just get some pics up.

      Next up is getting the jacket....which may be a bit more difficult...it cost more than the board, bindings, and boots combined....

      ssjvegetto87

      So...I'm 22 today...and I haven't slept yet. It is as of now, 3:45 in the morning. I've been up since 7:00am Wednesday morning.

      I see this as meaning one of two things. Either 1, it is the start of an amazingly epic day that will not be describable. Or 2, a bad omen for how much the day is going to suck balls.

      I'm really hoping it's the first...but with my luck, it'll be the second.

      I have class from 9:00 am until 10:00 pm, and I'm seriously thinking about skipping my night class.

      College....where people go to have dreams crushed by the reality of what the real world holds.

      P.S. I'm addicted to the website Texts From Last Night. You should check it out. No matter how bad you think you've screwed up, know that either you're not alone, or somebody has done far worse. It's like the non-photo version of People of Walmart.

    • Time goes by...

      6 years ago

      ssjvegetto87

      So, wow. Um, today marks my fifth anniversary of joining this site.

      Where did the time go?

      I was just a little sophomore in high school when I joined. Now I'm a junior in college. I have one of the most kick-ass jobs around (don't quote me on that, I complain enough about it that it isn't all that great). I'm getting an education and experience/training in something I love to do, computer work.

      Ok, so the love life kinda sucks at the moment, but still that has it's benefits. I don't have to worry about pissing anyone off when I do what I want to do. Which back to listing all the good things that have happened since I joined, I have my own place within walking distance of the University. I don't rely on my parents for anything (which may seem stupid, but I know several college students that rely on their parents for everything. Not because they have no choice, but just because they're too worthless to do anything on their own.).

      Hmm...As for on the site. What is there really left to be said? You guys are some of the most supportive (or rude, but don't take that in a bad way, it's usually reserved for those that deserve it...usually) people around. I've always felt like this was more of a community than most sites dedicated to social networking....yeah, that's a jab at facebook and myspace, deal with it. Granted, I personally have only met a handful of people from this site, I know there are many users that have made great friends through here and do things at least annually, if not more often, without them being convention related.

      I know this summer, one person asked the forums for help. Normally these things seem to just get answered by oen or two people, then shrivel up and die. This one though, I think it really has become something that a lot of people, especially high school and college students, can find use in. It was about Enlisting in the Military. Between myself and several of the other past and present military members really wanted to make sure she got all the information she would need to make the best decision for her. She has decided to go Navy Nuke, which is awesome, and I like to think that it was our efforts of explaining things that helped her make that choice.

      That's all I really have, so i just want to send a "Thank you!" to all the guys at Rooster Teeth for making this site and keeping it awesome enough to keep people here. You guys don't know what you created, but it's taken on a life of it's own beyond anything you expected. In this case, I don't think anybody could have asked for anything better.

      Here's hoping we have another 5+ years of awesomeness.

    • 'Twas the night before the night before

      7 years ago

      ssjvegetto87

      Alright, so it's officially 2 nights before Christmas, and I really think that the whole season it overrated.

      I'm sure I'm gonna get neg bombed for the first comment alone, so if you're still reading, help me out by canceling out those neg mods, at least if you agree with the rest of what I have to say.

      I'm not a Christian, and I make no claims of being one, but for what Christmas used to be about (the birth of Jesus) to what it is now, the whole season has become a farce.

      I know people who spend more time shopping for that "one perfect gift" that will likely never be used or possibly not even wanted by the recipient. Come on, give me a break.

      Hell, my best friend of 8 years really brought that to life this year. She told me (yes, I'm a guy, my best friend is a girl, and no, I'm not dating/sleeping with her, and no, I'm not homosexual, now that that's cleared up, I'll continue.) that she didn't want anything for Christmas other than something that I would draw for her.

      Think about that for a moment. I offered to get her anything she wanted, no matter what it was, and she told me that all she wanted was a picture drawn by me, for her. She didn't tell me what to draw, didn't give me any hints as to what she wanted to see, but simply told me that she wanted something drawn, by hand, by me, as a gift.

      I think that shows that the greatest gift to give someone doesn't have to be determined by the price tag, but can instead be determined by the thought you personally put into it. Yeah, I could have just as simply gone out and bought her something cheesy that she may or may not have liked, but for all that time and effort wasted, I was able to actually do something by hand that she truly enjoyed.

      Maybe that's just the way our relationship is, but next time, before you hand over your paycheck, or swipe your piece of plastic, try to instead think of something that they would like that you could do yourself. Screw the "Well, they spent this much on me last year, so I have to spend this much more on them this year" thinking. Instead, think about what they like, and put your heart into making something for them yourself. It'll likely be more rewarding for you and for them.

      Hell, my friend knitted me a scarf, one that I'll probably even actually use. I never wear scarves, and this one is badass enough that I just might start.

      Also, this isn't entirely without nudging, but is instead brought about by Aoina's post about what she did for her brother. That's a perfect example of what I'm talking about.

      Oh well, I guess that's just me, my best friend, and Aoina.

      So I'm a little late...but I've been in Cali since Sunday. I'm here for two weeks strictly for military purposes....kinda. They're paying me to be here, and paying for my trip, and I'm supposed to be learning stuff, but I'm just enjoying my time out here mostly.

      So...yeah..that's my life until Friday December 12, when I return to cold as fuck Ohio. That's all for me for a while, and I don't know when I'll be on again, so I'll talk to you guys when I can.

      Pft no way man, king all the way. Yeah interestingly enough I don't drink coffee that often. Not even once every day. I've been so busy lately, but I'm for sure going to be using it more with Comic Con approaching so fast.

      Thanks. :D I really do like getting input from people, but there are times when I feel like just posting and since I have the option to lock comments I shall use that to my advantage. Hopefully it'll act as a deterrent if people do feel like commenting me up or messaging me so they can think through before freaking out.

      Then again I'm being a tad on the cynical side, but I've had my fair share of stupidity on rvb, over much lesser issues.

    • Aoina InvScreen

      6 years ago

      Thanks, I locked comments because there's a few people whose opinion I care not to read. I figure being proactive and locking the comments in advance would be better than anyone starting up shitfit fights or something similar.
