    • Taking a Chill Pill

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      Wether you have noticed or not, I've change considerably in the last three months. I feel I've become angerier, more emotional, alone etc. etc., for whatever reasons and I fear that unless I do something about it, I'm going to end up hurting some people, maybe even lose a few good friends. That is why, in the best interests of myself, I'm going to be away again for a while. Not sure on the length of time I'll be away for this time, but I'll be using it to relax, chill out, get a few things going and most importantly find a life outside of my computer screens (OMG Daul Monitors).

      A few major things I'll be looking at doing inculde getting myself a full-time job. That requires re-writing my CV and updating it to make it look semi-decent. Then I actually have to find something I might find fun, forfilling and most importantly, pays a lot. Right now, £320 a month isn't cutting it. I need at least 4 times that with my current plans. I'm looking at something aimed at the computer industry or media industry, something basic, even if it's filling databases or something like that. At least it would beat my current employment, which is still feeling up and down (I'm doing 2 seperate shifts on Saturday. Yay >.<) and very, very boring. The 10% discount in nice, but I hardly earn enough money to use it anyway.

      Another reason would be to focus on my gym work. I find that already I'm feeling better body-wise, even if a difference isn't noticeable to the naked eye. But I'm getting there. After nearly destorying my arms last week, I find doing the same amount of weights easier and upgrading them quicker, too. Still working on being able to run that mile however, being a heavy asthmatic at all (I've been over-dosing my medication lately because it's been that bad. And NO, I haven't been doing it on purpose. You'd miss me.)

      Writing and Machinama work needs doing, too. I have my ideas and time, yet I haven't started either yet. For those wanting to know what's happening, I have several different projects lined up. Automatic Shockgun is to be my novel, GunBrothas is to be mine and Martz' Machinama using Halo... Actually, it isn't. Sorry to get your hopes up. It'll be made using "The Movies" and will feature in ArKayne's contest (If I'm not here to submit it BTW, Martz will.). Also, a live-action series is in the works and maybe a low-budget movie or two. Just for kicks, you know. So, I'm going to be quite busy.

      I have some games to get on with as well. My Dreamcast, for which I just recently bought a fuck load of stuff for, isn't getting any use, so that's a must. Also, after watching videos of Guitar Hero 2 (OMG Pulp Fiction theme *Cums*), I need to get back onto the original. I need loads of practise still. I suck ass. :D Also, I think I have a couple more PS2 games to complete and maybe some time completing the challanges on Guilty Gear X2 Reload for the XBOX. I want those bonus characters damnit.

      Last but not least, I need a social life. I'm considering going back to Wrestling Practice after a while out (due to a neck injury. Let's just say, I could of shattered it several times) to take some anger out and learn a few techniques. With the gym work as well, it'll help make me stronger, faster and less likely to kill myself. Also, if I had the time off work to do so, I'd take up Kendo. But of course, it's on Wednesday nights when I'm working. Ghey. I'd ask for time off, but people are leaving left and right. We lost another one today. D: One of the reasons for my double shift on Saturday. My day's fucking gone. ¬_¬

      Ironically, I'm taking a break just as I get my PC fixed and running smoothly again. Ah well. I have a few games to occupy me if I'm bored. Maybe open up AIM and all that, too. 'Course, that's if I'm not talking to Lauren, though. She got a cellphone! Means I'll be up until 8 every night talking to her. Fun times ahead! But yeah, I'll try and keep in contact.

      For anyone wondering if I'm in a good or bad mood writing this, I feel pretty good. All I say is Lea... Those pictures of you are adorable. They've made my night. I still don't get why you put the Death Note in your pants, but we'll ignore that for now. XD

      But yeah, I'm just taking some time off to releive some stress and all that. It'll do me good, seeming as Summer really is offically over for me. Thus, depressing fog and freezing tempertures. I hate those. ._. Like I mentioned, I don't know how long I'll be away for, but it shouldn't be more then a few weeks. Don't wait up for me, OK? ^^

      Oh, and just to be sure, I'm turning Friend Requests off whiles I'm gone. If you want to be my friend, send a messege. As for any outstanding requests eg. Banners and stuff, they will be done for tomorrow. Also, if you are still interested in sending letters and stuff and don't have my address, messege me TONIGHT.

      It was nice to be Featured again, though. Makes up for the popularity I won't be getting when I'm away (as though I had much anyway XP). I might leave a few pictures before I go, for anyone interested in knowing what I look like at this point (once I've shaven).

      To make things short for 90% of you: I'm gone for a few weeks.

      Until then... I'll be seeing you guys. :D

      "Bob Dylan once wrote, "The times, they are a changing". Ron Burgundy had never heard that song."

      UPDATE: I'm going to start at the end of the week. So yeah, you have to put up with me a bit longer.

    • Another Question Time

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      I felt that before my time as Featured User runs off, how about we do a little Q&A so all you guys can learn something about me. I feel it's only there that if you come to my profile that you should know more about me then what my profile says. Of course, there's also my friends on here who are free to ask me anything they're curious about.

      The rules are... there aren't any. You can ask me anything you want about me. Uh... but no shitty questions or insults. You'll be ignored. However, I know that the most of you are respectful to other people, so let's go.

      Ask me anything, peoples. :P I'll reply to your questions here in this journal (in the comments area).

    • WTF Again?!

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      I'm Featured User again? How the hell does this happen? O_o

      I won't do the whole speech thing I did before, but I'll just say thanks to everyone, to the staff, to my friends etc. etc.

      Now I wish I hadn't woken up so late. Fucking 5 in the afternoon. This is what happens when you're watching Pulp Fiction all night.

    • This... is MSN...

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      Uh... Michael Stampede News. Yeah...

      Haven't had a good journal entry in a while. I admit my last one wasn't a good idea and the one before that was very vauge, so I'm going to start by clearing a few things up.

      --------------------------------

      SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO?

      --------------------------------
      My last journal was a bad idea. I'm not leaving and I made myself look like an attention whore because of it. I admit considering it again a few weeks ago, but ultimately felt that saying such a thing to start off with was a shitty idea. So, I apoligize to everyone about it. I am however looking to spend last time on here though for numerous reasons. The obvious being late nights and publicity whores, but they inculde getting a full-time job, fitness work and self-education, being that I lack money, fitness and intelligence (at least, I think so).So yeah, I'll update oyu on any progress I make.

      --------------------------------

      AM I COMING OR GOING?

      --------------------------------
      In the journal before that, I annouced that I wasn't going to Texas, and that the trip was cancelled. Well, it's not been cancelled per se, just pushed back... Until Spring Break. It means waiting almost half a year before I can see her, which sucks. It was mainly due to perental problems on both sides, time problems and cash. Although I tried my best to make up the money for it, I couldn't make it. Let's just say both of us felt very low because of it.

      But, I still love her, more then ever. It'll just mean waiting a bit longer for what I want. It'll be worth it, though, I'm positive. She'll be off school for a while AND she'll be old enough to do certain things, plus I'll be able to see some of my other Texas friends. It'll be awesome. Gives me a chance to make some serious cash and all that. It was depressing that I won't be there for her birthday and that I have to wait EVEN LONGER for love... but I'm hoping that Lauren is the one for me, I honestly do.

      --------------------------------

      STAYING IN TOUCH

      --------------------------------
      Recently, I received a letter from Kristin (Sakura18) telling me about her days and time away at Boot Camp. Receiving this letter, it made me feel special. It made me want to receive letters more often. So, I'm asking if anyone's interested, who wants to send me a letter? I think it would be cool and stuff. Or, if you want, I could send some of you guys one. All you have to is ask, because I'm in a writing mood. I'm willing to give my address out, but only to friends.

      Also, once my PC is fixed, I'll be able to phone people again. Anyone wanna talk? Just ask, I wouldn't mind. I can give out my mobile No. as well via a Messege, but unless you have an International Calling Card, I wouldn't phone me.

      I just feel like talking and keeping in contact with more people.

      --------------------------------

      MORE UPDATES LATER

      --------------------------------

      I'll update you guys on other things in another journal later tonight. smiley0.gif

    • At this point...

      The trip is cancelled.

      Further details to come when I get them.

    • I did it...

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      I fucking did it.

      I'VE FINALLY FINISHED COLLEGE!!!!!

      After 12 hours non-stop on Flash and Photoshop, I am now officially free.

      Now don't mind if I'm not on for the next week. I'm going to go collapse into bed and stay there. That is my victory.

      I guess you could say... my trip's on.

      Uh... that is all?

      - Mike... FINALLY OUT OF PRISON COLLEGE!

    • Real Problems

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      - My PC... has died. I mean, died. I was up until 7a.m. trying to re-format the damn thing only for things to fuck up further. Losing everything was bad enough, but losing everything when my assignment is due TOMORROW makes this the worse possible situation I could be in. Why the fuck didn't I wait? Why? I'm angry now... It's my own damn fault. I'll be up all night half-assing this work or face certain failure. Lucky me...

      - I got my paycheck today. Now, unlike my brother, I got most of my paycheck... Just one problem. You guys know about the trip, right? Seems I'll only have enough money this month to get there. Just... get there. No spending money, no emergency money, nothing. This comes from being an idiot again. Again, why the fuck didn't I wait?

      - I won't be on-line much until my PC is fixed, which sucks to say I need people more then ever. Just, what am I supposed to do now? I'm not cancelling the trip and I'm finding a solution towards the work. I just need some assistance.

      My days of reckless spending and trying to make everything perfect has pretty much finished me for the moment. >_< I know you guys can't help much... but any advice would be awesome. Again however, I am not cancelling the trip. I promised her with my life that I'll be there. So... I don't know.

      - Mike.

    • Comments, Comments, Comments...

      12 years ago

      MikeStampede

      I have 88 watchers, but am receiving very few comments. I understand my last journal was kinda bullshit... I did have an idea for it but that kinda vanished mid-way thru writing it before it became just another boring story of the most unattractive things in my life... but we'll ignore that for now and probably forever.

      So, with that said, I was want to know who's watching me still. Friend or not, I want to hear from as many of you as possible. At least a quarter of you.

      If you watch me and you're not on my friend's list, I like to repeat something many of you hadn't caught in the pervious journal. I'm accepting the next TWO friend requests I get, whoever they might be. I've already had one. So, if you want to become my friend, do it now.

      Other then make this a watchlist journal, I thought I'd mention that today, I will be in college for the last time to finish my final assignment before celebrating. To add to that, Laury-chan has got her parents to let me stay with her in Texas, so that's doubly awesome. Plane is leaving 2 weeks on Friday... I can't wait. smiley0.gif

      Oh, and it seems my sponsership expired a few days ago... I wish they'd fix this whole thing. While it's nice to have an added extension to it and all... I don't know, I just wanna get my next payment in ASAP. No, you can't buy it for me (auto-renew). Besides, I doubt anyone would offer anyway.

      I guess that's all for now. smiley1.gif However, to add a little spice to this journal... ITT, we post our video game heroes.
