      Hey people who bother to read my little posts! :D So I think the last time I posted something was on my birthday. So I thought I'd give an update. Not as active as I use to be. I don't really dig the new layout of this site. :/ I still stalk the site, people's postings, etc. If I haven't commented on any of your posts in awhile, I apologize. I've been really busy doing adult stuff.


      Well besides working, I have been going out with the most amazing person ever! ^_^ She is the peanut butter to my jelly, the ham to my eggs, the glove to my hand, the Rick to my Morty, etc, etc, etc. :P I started house hunting in December and I'm happy to say I found a home! You don't realize how long a process it is to purchase a home........it's dumb and a bit stressful. But I'm finally at the home stretch! (no pun intended) Closing is Feb. 22nd and everything is looking great. And to top it all off, my girlfriend is moving in! So excited! Right now we're in a semi-distant long relationship. I live in Chicago and she lives in Michigan. But soon we'll be together. I can't wait to see her everyday and know that it won't be for just a weekend.


      Let's see what else......I have been working my dream job for almost 18 months now. And I couldn't be happier. The work can be physically and mentally exhausting at times, but it's still worth it. And the pay is not bad either. :3


      Honestly I think that's it. I mean, there are other things that are going on.....but they tend to be a little more personal. And i really only want to focus on positive. :) I hope everyone else is doing well. I miss gaming with a few of you guys.......and talking to others. Hopefully the next time I post it will be after I move in. I'll post some pics too! :D

      well it's been quite a while since I've posted anything worth talking about. that and still getting use to this new layout......bleh! lol. anywho for anyone who even reads my journal, here's the skinny:

      I've been working my new job and loving it! sometimes it can try a person's patients, but over all it's a very rewarding career. that and the pay is amazing! I finally feel like a REAL adult. It feels good when you can stand on your own two feet and not be supported by a family member. speaking of my job, it's already been one year since I started! wow! time sure flew by quickly.

      I am also looking to become a homeowner for the first time and I'm super excited about it! I saw my very first house yesterday. It was really cool.......but I think it might be awhile before I find the right house for me.

      along with looking for a new home, I have found a woman who is absolutely incredible! we have been officially together since the 27th of July and I couldn't be happier! ^_^ being single blows and trying to find that right person who likes and accepts you for you is harder than you would think. lol for all the "you's" in that last sentence. :P

      unfortunately, I won't be attending RTX this year like i wanted to. :( I was really excited to go, but getting use to my new job schedule, love life, and other adult responsibilities, RTX had to take a back seat this year. I am definitely looking forward to attending next year and meeting all the people I've wanted to since I've joined this site. special shoutouts to @LoZelda, @Kaoru27Umi, @zeeazn5525, and @Audrey! you guys were some of my first friends on this site. and hi-fives to the rest of my friends list! you guys are awesome too.

      I hope everyone is doing well and continues to make this a great community to be apart of. :D

      it's been quite a while since I've posted anything. between work and other adults things, this place seems to have really taken a back seat. I liked being super active before........but now I can honestly say I really don't miss it all that much. I think it's because of what another fellow member told me.

      It made me a little sad to hear..............but when I thought about it, it kinda seemed to be true. they informed me that they would not be attending RTX this year. but the reason being is because it seems a lot of the fan base of RT and AH well..........are kids and teenagers. now I'm not saying that's a bad thing .......however I had to ask myself, do I really want to hang around a bunch of kids half my age?

      I'm 31. yes, I know people my age attend RTX as well. but I'm also sure a majority of them are way younger. and younger crowds tend to be more obnoxious.....it gave me a different perspective. It made me wonder if the people of AH and RT wanted to cater to this age bracket? or if it just sorta happened and they were like, "F**k it!"

      It would be cool to meet other people in my age bracket who also appreciate RT and AH though....but I dunno if it's worth my time. what do you guys think?

    • blah!!! 7 facts?! WAT?!

      4 years ago

      OPTIMUSX26 Autobot

      yeaaaahhhhhh so I guess this is where I'm suppose to divulge 7 facts about myself......thanks to a certain someone tagging me on her timeline *cough* @zeeazn5525 *cough* my first thoughts about this were....

      InigoMontoya.jpg

      but then I was like......................

      Whatever+motherfucker+if+this+is+a+repos

      so here we go!

      Fact #1: I'm a huge fan of Transformers, particularly G1 and Beast wars. Robots were always cool to me. and ones that could turn into stuff was even better! classic good guys vs. bad guys. I've always considered myself a "good guy." probably why I have the Autobots symbol tatted on my right shoulder and Optimus Prime on my left. :P

      Fact #2: I can't stand people who like to judge others. it's very easy to sit there and point out someone else's flaws, all the while ignoring your own. there is no one on this blue sphere who hasn't made a mistake or done something regrettable. I think being able to admit one's mistakes and work on their personal flaws is something everyone should strive for. I know I do.

      Fact #3: I use to be insanely fat! but over the course of the last 5 years I've been able to shed 50+ pounds and keep it off. I use to be real self conscience about my looks and my weight. until one fateful day my cousin put it all in perspective for me. it was a conversation that literally changed my life. not only do I look good now, but I feel good! :) you'd be surprised at how much confidence you gain from just a little self improvement. :D

      Fact #4: I struggled finding a full time job for the last 3 years. yeah life is a cruel evil SOB! but despite being mentally beaten down by it, I never gave up. and now I'm working my dream job and have no more financial woes! yay!!!!!! :D

      Fact #5: I'm a pretty stubborn guy. usually once my minds made up on something, that's pretty much it. I like to beat to my own drum. I don't like people telling me what I should or shouldn't do. after all, it's my life! I like to figure things out for myself usually. I also don't like accepting help from others. not saying that I don't appreciate it, but I like to do things myself. kind of a macho thing I guess lol.

      Fact #6: I'm a super loyal person. I have very few REAL friends now a days. but if you are fortunate to be called a friend by me, know that I got your back no matter what. it goes the same for romantic relationships. I'm a one woman kinda guy. still looking for that special someone. dating is a pain in the ass though! lol >.<

      Fact #7: I did not enjoy doing this lol. coming up with 7 facts about myself was tough. I usually don't share personal information with just anybody. but sometimes it's nice to step outside your comfort zone every now and again to experience new things! :) no I'm not going to tag anyone......because let's face it......do these things really even matter? meh! who knows. :P

    • what I've been up to....
