      Too long, simply too long. I have been keeping up on RvB episodes, but just haven't been present much at the site. I hope to change that, as this is better than facebook to me atleast, and I've been spending too much time on that.

      I haven't had much time for games lately, as I'm busy with college and band. I have mainly played runescape between classes, because it's easy to access for me. ODST I'm only about 3 missions into. I really wish I could finish the campaign, but when I get invited to play some firefight, I can't turn it down. Not to mention I'm slow in the campaign cuz I'm trying to find all the audiophiles myself and essentially just search the entire town for hidden things.

      Hope everyone's doin good!

      I'm getting ready to format my laptop, which is getting a bit full and just needs a good, clean sweep.

      During this, I have backed up all my music to my external HD. It's a 1TB drive from Western Digital, and I've put over 10 gigs of music on it. I have iTunes on my laptop/PC referencing to a library file on it, so it plays all the songs from off the drive (I checked the file paths on iTunes, so that's all working).

      My question is... is it going to seriously mess up my hard drive if I do this too much? Obviously, music isn't the only thing I'm using this for. I'm going to be redownloading the RvB episodes to move to here, as well as moving a ton of pictures and such to it, so it needs to last. How badly will this deteriorate my Hard drive?

      Basically, what I'm asking is... do other people use this setup to play music, and has your external drive been perfectly fine through it all?

    • Halo fix

      I haven't been around much... BUT I'm on a halo fix... Halo 3 tonight at 8:30PM for squad battle! If I have a party of more than 6 (have about 2 confirmed guests so far), then we can switch to team flag.

      Maybe I'll see some people on!

    • A new perspective

      xmrsaturnx

      So, this past weekend, I spent my Easter in Happy Valley because of an early morning Sunday shift. Because I wasn't going to make it home for Easter, and everyone up here I'm really close to had already gone home, I decided to work. I put in 18 and 1/2 hours this weekend, which should net me atleast 165$... nice for 2 days of work!

      I also did a lot of thinking this weekend. For those who don't know me in real life, I can be quite the negative person. This is something I find a major flaw about myself. Since then, I've been a lot more open when listening to people, and I try to get involved in conversations, even if they don't greatly interest me. But as told today, I'm still not quite there yet, and one thing I need to do to really help fix my negativity (and build up more confidence) is hit the gym again.

      I've been letting myself go, so starting IMMEDIATELY (none of this next monday crap, or tomorrow crap) I'm back on a diet. If I can lose a good deal of weight, I'll feel better about myself (less negativity, like when I call myself fat or ugly), and I'll build up some confidence (less fear approaching a girl I have interest in). It starts now.

      Conversation also turned to my ex, who apparently has little compassion and has definitely changed. Heck, I could care less. She made it clear she wants me out of her life, so I'm doing just that.

      I think I may have to give up gaming for a little bit (maybe a little gaming on the weekends?), but I need to focus on getting out of the rest of this semester first, and focus on keeping myself healthy. After I beat Halo Wars (which I should be doing tonight), then the Xbox is off for the rest of the semester (except maybe the weekends?)

      Anyway, I must get back to studying for micro. Ta ta!

      Since January, I've sort of been in a hiatus from red vs blue (and halo 3 in general). Don't get me wrong! I stop by and read the comics/check out the new videos (I loved Captain Dynamic btw), but I haven't really been doing anything else.

      So, now that I'm finally almost over her (90% I'd say), I can move on with my life. I've been playing a lot of Halo 3 again recently, and Summer is rapidly approaching... a Summer where I'll be single for the first time since... 9th-10th grade.

      Also, I just purchased a 120 GB hard drive from amazon.com ($124, and I was trying to avoid all the HDD's on ebay.com that were shipping from foreign countries), so I should have that before summer. I'm planning to transfer all my stuff over to it (or maybe I'll keep rock band alone on my 20GB?) and have a new hard drive to game with. After I have all that space, I'll finally read my Halo 2 maps so I can play some Halo 2 again (I had to delete them, too much memory given to them)

      In other news, classes are going well, and I'm down to the last 3 weeks. I'm not really trying to find love anymore, cuz love kicked my ass already!

      Hope everyone is doing well!

      I'm starting to feel better about this whole relationship thing. I had been saving for a ring, but since I don't have to do that anymore, I finally bought myself an iPod Touch.

      I am in love with it. It's a 16gig 2nd generation touch. Anyone want to help me figure out how to download RvB to it? Does it play .mov or just .mp4?

    • Facebook makes it official...

      8 years ago

      xmrsaturnx

      Last night (I saw it this morning), her relationship status officially changed to be in a relationship with this new guy... I had my suspicions they were dating before this appeared, even 2 days after breaking it off with me, but seeing it on facebook made it so much harder.

      On Wednesday, having tried to be there as the friend for 2 weeks, I had to cut off all contact. This included limiting her ability to view my facebook, blocking her on AIM (both screennames), and blocking her on plurk (a site that is all about status updates). I thought that was enough, but I could still view her facebook, I could still view her plurk page, and I was getting by all right, thinking that I could handle seeing the relationship thing on facebook.

      Apparently I couldn't...

      I have crashed this morning. I saw it, and my world sunk, because now it's official. No matter how much I suspected it was started beforehand, now it was definite. The girl I had dated for 4 years had moved on to someone else in less than 2 weeks...

      I even had my proposal planned out. I'd ask her parents and buy the ring over spring break. I'd visit her during her spring break. That summer, I'd go visit her (she's staying where she's at to work on research this summer). We'd go out to a nice dinner, then to see a Orchestra concert together, then spend the night at a hotel. I would propose to her sometime in there. That's all thrown away now. I guess it's better this happened before spring break, so atleast I didn't already have the ring bought...

      It makes me wonder if there were feelings over christmas that I missed. Did I miss the signs? Was I that bad at reading my girlfriend back then?

      All I know is that I'm crushed right now. I've proceeded to remove her and all her duquesne friends from facebook, delete my plurk, and block her relatives on twitter (she doesn't actually use twitter). This leaves communication to email/phonecall, and that's all I'm leaving it at. I left one final journal entry on livejournal to read. Whether she reads it or not, I don't know. In one way, I hope she does, but in the another, I'm afraid of messing up whatever she sees in this other guy. If she doesn't love me anymore, it's not something I can change.

      I know I still love her... I know that if I see her again in public, I'm gonna cry. I know if I see her on the arm of this other guy, I'm gonna cry... I just know I'm gonna fall apart if I see her, so maybe I'll never have to see her again.

      Sorry for my ranting... I need a place to let it out, and sorry RvB community for putting you through it...

    • Hi RvB community

      I know... no journal updates in over a month and very little activity. I spent most of my christmas break with the girl I love, that I didn't have time to post anything. I was also in california for the rose bowl. However, things have become quite depressing in my life, and I feel the need to share them. I got back to school and everything seemed to be going my way. Got a promotion with my job here, classes were easy, and I thought my girlfriend and I were doing well.

      Apparently not.

      My girlfriend, of about 5 years (besides a break I made and just a little less (february would be 5 years altogether), wanted a break. This came out of nowhere... a Friday night, after I had finished a supervisor shift. It was freezing outside, so I did not press on, but tears began to roll, and I'm a very hard guy to make me cry.

      So, after a long morning of work in which I had no correspondence, I got to talk to her, and she explained how she felt guilty not being in touch with me everyday because she was that busy, and that she was losing weight over it. I tried explaining that you don't have to worry about me, I'm here for when you need me. However, that wasn't good enough. I repeated several times "Just tell me if there's something else I should know about", and she said no. I asked if I should move on, and she also replied "no, because I still love you and there's a good chance I'll want to get back together real soon"

      However, Sunday, right before I got to watch my steelers play for the AFC championship, I find pictures of her ice skating with friends from up there, including this one guy that she was studying with a lot. I knew him from December, raised question, but then trusted her that she wouldn't do anything to hurt me. Well, these pictures included one where they were really close, and I immediately jumped to a conclusion, but then tried to think "maybe he's making a move on her" or "maybe it's just coincidence". I went to a trombone party later, and got back in at 3 to see messages of "we need to talk asap"

      So we talked, and she said that she sort of wants to try a new relationship, to see where it would go. I said that "why didn't you tell me", and she said it came out of nowhere. I don't know what to think anymore. They're not dating yet, and I told her that I can't really support her on this decision because I still love her, but that I would help her as best I can. Turns out, my friends knew before me because while I was at the party, my friend called her and asked her what was happening, and that if she doesn't tell me soon, by the next day, she would have told me. Well, she needn't have told me, cuz I found out that night.

      I've cried... a lot... it takes a lot to make me cry, that is undeniable. However, several times, while trying to talk to my family, I just started to lose it. This was the girl I was planning to propose to in the summer. I had plans to buy the ring over spring break and begin payments. Summer, I'd take her out for a special night where I'd propose. That obviously has changed. I've lost the girl I thought I'd be spending my life with, and whether I get her back is totally unknown to me.

      Now, I originally was posting statuses to let her know how I feel, but have stopped. I have begun to think that, if she still cares about me, she'll ask me how I'm doing and we'll still talk. If she feels like a fallback option, it may convince her. If she feels like she's losing me, maybe she'll come back. Only time will tell. For the time being, I'm attempting to better myself. That includes getting active in more school activities, losing some weight, working out to build muscle, and generally just making my social life better. I AM NOT searching for any relationships right now, as rebounding is never the answer, my sister said, and it won't help whoever you rebound to. So, instead I'm gonna let life take it's course, and when I meet someone randomly, and we seem to hit it off, I'll know I'm ready to move on. I just hope that it doesn't get to that point, because I still love her, and right now, my heart is broken, but it's hard to keep telling her that through statuses, so I'll let her live her life and see what becomes of my future.

      Sorry for the rant...

    • Rawk Band

      8 years ago

      xmrsaturnx

      In my free time here, which I've had an abundance of since the football season is over (except for our bowl game), I've been playing rock band 2. Now, I'm already good at guitar and vocals, so I finally decided to suck it up and play drums on medium. Surprisingly, I'm already playing on hard and almost ready to make the jump to expert. Then I could play any instrument on expert when playing rock band :D

      But besides that, I have one last final to take, which is on wednesday. I have absolutely NOTHING to do tomorrow and Tuesday, except for a 2-6 shift on Tuesday... Why couldn't Bungie's weekend Grifball extend through Tuesday? Anywho, I'm working an 8-midnight shift, then playing halo 3 (mostly grifball, but probably some other gametypes) for most of the night... sleep isn't an issue, I'll sleep all day tomorrow, lol.

      So, if anyone is on in approximately 4 hours from this post, hit me up to play!

    • fuckin mic...

      9 years ago

      xmrsaturnx

      Well, I decided to play some halo 3 again tonight since I saw Jen and 2 others, who I don't really know, but I'm sure I would have got to know a little better had...

      MY MIC NOT BEEN BROKEN!

      For some reason, my 360 mic is broken. I guess a year and a half of abuse has finally ended it. The only reason I probably havent noticed til now is because when I play rock band 2, which is the main game I've been playing online, I use the mic I sing through to talk to people, so that one works. But my gamer mic, so to speak, is done for. I still plan to play halo pretty much all weekend, it's just a matter of getting a mic now that is in jeopardy. I'm asking my friend up here to drive me out to gamestop on friday to pick one up, and hopefully, I get one, cuz it's just not fun without one.

      In other news, I'm leaving for California on the 29th to play with the blue band at the Rose Bowl... GO STATE, BEAT SPARTANS!!!

      Down to my final week and a half of classes, then finals. Hopefully, all goes well, and I can not worry about my grades as I head home for christmas. I asked for a bunch of CDs, since people wanted gift ideas. Probably no new games this season, but if I get any money, it will be converted to MS points for rock band 2 downloads and arcade games probably.

      I'm also applying for an senior consultant position with my lab consulting job, which will give me more responsibilites, like checking the labs, taking care of problems normal consultants don't deal with, and reporting back to my bosses. I hope my interview goes well!

      That's about it :)

      I support people with disabilities in their homes. Some times I work 3pm to 9pm...sometimes I work 9pm to 9am....we get paid to sleep...we have our own bedroom. But my permanent shift is live in weekends. So I'm usually here for 66 hours. 42 awake and 24 sleep. I put in an additional 24 hours today till tomorrow equalling 90 hours because its a stat holiday today so i'm earning 24 hours of overtime (time and a half)....I bring my laptop and when we aren't doing much I rip neighbouring internet.....I should really send those people a thank you card LOL....
      we are in a union...which sucks (this particular union...=joke) so our employment rules are as follows.
      anything over 10 WAKE hours a day on week days is overtime (sleep never counts except stat holidays)
      anything over 16 wake hours on a weekend is overtime.
      exceeding 50 wake hours a week is overtime
      working on a 24 hour period off is overtime and we have to have 2 24hour periods off in one work week....
      so ya. I work a lot. LOL but i can also pick up extra shifts if i want and such.
      does that make any sense?
