Making sure this thing is still on.

I guess I'm going to go and change my avatar. That @ezracooperst is making me feel things again. I can't be my old surly self anymore.
How is everyone? I know all my journals have been bleak for the last... like... 3 years. For those still around and reading my stuff. Thanks.
One big thing with me right now: I'm getting together a local group to DM a campaign of D&D. I'm more nervous than anything and I'm not even close to ready, yet. No matter what, I'm going to be sending word out in a few weeks to get people together to have a character creating party. I'll be setting it in Tal'Dorei since I know more about the world of Exandria than Faerun because of Critical Role.
Speaking of. I better get back to my binge watching (Episode 86 right now hoping to be caught up in just a few more weeks).

Never felt so out of touch with this place. Hell, I still have my damn Charlie Brown Christmas tree avatar... I would change it but not sure I want to spend the next 15 minutes fighting the site every time I switch pages of images just to find a replacement.
Oh well. I'll keep it. Shows how much I care these days until I see some much needed changes.
Will I make it to 14? idk... we'll see.

That was incredible. I've only been to RTX and the difference is that it wasn't ONLY friends that made this convention so amazing (friends always helps a lot, though).
Now I have to decide whether I come back to PAX South for my next one or go do Unplugged... Decisions, decisions...

I'll be getting into Austin either late night Wednesday or morning/afternoon on Thursday depending whether we sleep or not. I'll totally be down with meeting up with folk for lunch Thursday before heading down to San Antonio.
You can message me on Twitter @rvbdopp if you want to contact me directly since that will at least give me a notification.
Hope to see some faces. :)

I think one of my biggest flaws is that I want to feel included in things.
I know what you're thinking, "well, duh! We all do!" But I don't think this is something that a lot of people see and one that impacts me personally. The problem is that I start trying to force inclusiveness. I think, "Wow! This thing seems cool, I think I want to do that!" and then I realize that the only people I know who are also interested are scattered across the U.S. and not anywhere near me.
The newest one is board games. I've bought at least 5 board/card games in the last couple of years that are incredible games. I've opened and played them about 3 times... not 3 times a piece, just 3 times total. I try to get people interested, but no one around here cares.
I also really, really love playing D&D twice a week online with friends. There's no other game like it in the world and each game is an amazing experience mostly due to the people I'm playing with and my DMs. I've been desperately wanting to play with people around here and have found interest from a few, but no one can tell me that they want to actually start playing. This is after I bought books and dice and other things to get ready to possibly DM my own campaign. I've even started figuring out my campaign. The most I've been able to do is play with the wife and kids. While that is really fun and they seem to enjoy it for the most part, I really want a normal adult game of D&D locally.
Anyway. I put this here because this is the most hidden social media places nowadays. Just wanted to get it off my chest.

Why do I keep coming back?
Only like 2 of my friends ever update journals. I never post. I barely read anything on here anymore. Been debating just deleting my profile, but I'm too much of a sentimental being for that. I may just take it off my bookmarks list so I stop clicking in and being sad.
Shoot me a message on Facebook, or Xbox Live, or hangouts, or whatever if the site ever gets better.
I would say it's been a great 12 years, but it was a great 10 years for sure.
Only if you give it to me in person. <3

I actually couldn't think of anything when I first saw this in my comments. I, sadly, had to take it to Google to jog my memory.
Only two really stands out to me. The first is the Super Mario 64 sequel that apparently for turned into Super Mario Sunshine or something.
The only other one that comes to mind is Silent Hills. Man, what a waste.
