      Hi,

      Remember me? Probably not. It's been 8-9 months since I last made a journal or posted in a forum. In fact today is pretty much the first time since then I've logged onto the site. And it's quite possibly going to be my last.

      A lot has happened in the time I have been away from the site. I quit my shitty dead end job. I moved house. I met someone. I went back to school to begin a degree in media production. I travelled to Gainesville solo and attended The Fest solo. I made new friends.

      But as a lot of new paths opened I also closed a lot. My band is pretty much nonexistent. My acoustic guitar collects dust. I stopped playing video games. And I distanced myself from online communities.

      Now, I don't want to say anything that may offend anyone. I have nothing against Rooster Teeth as a company and the people I have interacted with here. I've just 'witnessed' a lot of, stuff, that put me off getting involved. And from that I stopped talking in forums and stopped signing into skype. Again, nothing against those I interacted with, I just got freaked out by others, a lot.

      I debated whether to keep my shiny star but, again nothing against Rooster Teeth, I just don't really watch much of the content anywhere near as much as I used to. I used to watch every single video soon as it was uploaded. Now I'm over a month behind the RT Podcast; a lot of Achievement Hunter videos have sat in my 'watch later' for weeks to only be removed without being watched; Haven't watched The Patch since October or so; Screenplay only got a few episodes in. Sponsor Cut videos are just wasted on me now. There is nothing wrong with any of them. I just don't have the interest I once had. So I thought there wasn't really any reason to continue to sponsor something I don't even use anymore.

      I don't really know why I wrote this. I set out to say hi & bye, but I just in a way wanted to explain why. There is a possibility I may return again. And maybe seeing this if/when I return may be a nice reflection. I don't know. I'm tired as hell and just rambling now.

      So will just say see you at some point.

    • What do?

      First free evening I've had in over a week and I'm stumped on what to do.

      I just came back from having a rehearsal and it went, okay. It's been a while since we last got together and as we were all out last night, we were a bit rough (Even though I don't drink I had to walk 2 hours to get home at stupid o'clock) And enthusiasm was a bit low, but we got stuff worked on and something new in the pipeline.

      I want to do a bit of song writing tonight so I have something new to bring to the table next time we get together. But I also want to do a bit of catching up on my video games, animes and I got a hold of HER which I'm very curious to check out. Also want to do a little bit of exercising, even though I technically did some at 1am.

      I have roughly 5 ish hours before I plan to go to sleep so I could attempt to do all of them, but I don't have much stamina left in me.

      And I'm back. Miss me? No? Aw

      So once again back to feeling better about things, hope it lasts longer this time.

      I went to see Imperial Leisure last night and getting to see old faces, hearing the music, and just being embraced in the energy that is generated at gigs was the right kind of medicine.

      Slightly bummed out that I found out that Goldfinger have had to cancel their UK tour due to a member needing surgery. Goldfinger are 1 or 3 bands that shaped my music taste and that I haven't grown out of listening to for 15 years or so. The other 2 are The Suicide Machines and my all time favourite band, Suicidal Tendencies - All 3 came from the 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater' soundtrack - and for those years I've always wanted to see them live. I finally got to see Suicidal Tendencies last year, getting to see The Suicide Machines isn't going to be easy as they only reunite every once in a while to play a festival, but I was so looking forward to seeing Goldfinger play in a couple of weeks. But I know it's out of their control and hopefully they will reschedule soon.

      I almost feel like I'm betraying RT saying this but, I've decided to go The Fest this year instead of RTX. Don't hate me! I thought about it and it came down to 2 reasons. 1 being with RTX only about 2 months away, I wouldn't have enough time to work up a decent amount of spending money. Had enough for flights, pass and accommodation but don't really want to spend 4/5 days not eating. The second reason is because music is and forever will be my one greatest love and I've been wanting to attend The Fest for the last 4 years, and with it being at the end of October it's going to easier for me to gain moneys.

      However I'm hoping to make 2015 my convention year. I've still never been to a convention and want to finally lose my con virginity. San Diego Comic Con is always going to be the dream, but i know getting passes are practically impossible. So I'm aiming to get to PAX (which one I haven't decided but tempted by East the most) and RTX. and I'm hoping @MiniMoosey plan for disneyland still goes ahead smiley0.gif

      That's enough rambling for me for one day.

    • A moment of silence

      Oh wow, I had a painful start to the day. Had to meet up with my ex so we could exchange the stuff we had left at each other's place, and it wasn't the most fun experience. To go from talking constantly and feeling full of sublime as soon as we seen each other, to then only mumble 'hello' and feel a sense of coldness is pretty shitty. It has also just dawned on me that not only has the relationship ended but I've lost a very dear friend, and that has been quite a shock to the system.

      I thought I had managed to get over things but turns out I'm still wounded. So because of this I'm going to be a little quiet from the site for a couple of days, just to give myself some time to wrap my head around things.

      So because of recent events I've decided I need to make some changes, the big one being my job. Oh how I loath where I work. Found something that seems suitable; another call centre but that's expected as that's all the North East has to offer these days. On the plus it is a inbound calls only position, so I won't be harassing people with unsolicited calls if I get it.

      Some, issues have arisen during the application process though. It's been a while since I've last applied for a job (July 2012 apparently being the last time) and for whatever reason, Microsoft office no longer exists on my laptop...and I can't open the file that contains my résumé. And because the product key is nowhere to be found and I don't want to buy another copy, I'm having to install a trial version, and the installation is taking forever.

      I wonder if this is a test from the Job Gods.

    • Everything Hurts

      Just want to say thank you to those who had reached out to me after my journal post yesterday, really means a lot. Still pretty bummed out about things but as they say 'time heals all wounds'.

      Speaking of wounds...

      I'm dying! Okay, okay I may just be a drama queen but seriously I am so sick it's unbearable. Not only is my throat still messed up but I've now got some evil virus or something taking over my body; my head hurts, my ears are blocked, my sinuses ache, I'm hungry but at the same I'm not, my sense of temperature is all outta whack, and the list goes on.
      I actually went out for about 45 minutes as I need to pick some things up and I ended up being so exhausted from it I passed out for a few hours when I got home.

      Eurgh I hope this passes soon.

      I don't know why I'm writing this, I guess just as a form of venting but I've had a incredibly shit time at the moment. My throat is messed up so work has been a struggle to the point that I had to dive out early as I was unable to speak. Also means I'm unable to do any rehearsals till it's repaired which really bugs me. And today my partner decided to end things between us. Wasn't a mutual thing and came out of nowhere so it's hit me pretty hard.

      I dunno I don't really have anything else to say on it, going to try and distract myself from it.

      I woke up today filled with anxiety and almost spent the entire day hiding in my room. But because the sun was shinning I forced myself to get out, and I am so glad that I did. I spent the entire day soaking up the sun catching up with friends, and family, that I haven't seen for weeks. Completely demolished all signs of anxiety.

      Now I plan to play through some video games and then finally getting to check out RT Radio.

      Hey, I just had a look at your Record Store Day blog and thought you might appreciate these links to great punk vinyl distros in the UK. You might know of them, but if you don't this could save you some decent money on importing records. The first two in particular seem pretty much tailored to your favourite albums.

        Indeed! To be honest I find it rare that I come across anyone who has similar tastes as I do. I mean I do listen to a lot of different stuff but punk and ska are my main loves

        No problem! It's actually really cool discovering people that are really into music on here. smiley1.gif

        Thanks for checking out my blog!
        And no I haven't heard of these before, I actually limit down my physical media as much as possible as I tend to move around a lot, and because I'm worried in case something will break (specially something as fragile as vinyl) I've gone for a more digital approach. But shall bookmark these for when (and hopefully soon) I am in a fixed location.

      Hello person I've yet to meet!

      Saw you connected to our Teamspeak server but disconnected in our welcome centre before an admin could verify you.

      Everything alright? Maybe a mic issue?

        Yeah, will try to log on another day, realising what time it is I'll probably end up waking my house mates.
        With any luck I shall make it to a RvB/RTUK
