      Have fun, now you have the song stuck in your head.


      Still around, still kicking. Unsubbed from SWTOR since they haven't released anything significant in almost two years except for story content, and the RP kind of fell off. Overwatch has consumed my life and my very soul, it filled the competitive hole in my heart I've had for a while that Halo 5 couldn't help. I've also gotten into WoW in place of SWTOR, never thought I'd see that happen but hey, I'm on Wyrmrest Accord if folks are around. Ark also caught my attention, because dinosaurs fuck yeah.


      My health is a hell of a lot better. Had to get some extensive testing done on my heart and while everything was clear, it was a bit of a fright and kicked my ass into gear to get back in shape. Down 20 pounds, woooo! I'm also planning a trip to Universal Studios with halosavior, Battlefrag, Kamikaze and some SWTOR friends so I'm really pumped about that.


      Work sucks. Supervisor role has stressed me out big time with long hours and hardly any rewards (1.8% raise? Fucking hell...). Been looking for a new job but no bites yet, kind of taking my time so I can find myself a job with daytime hours and good pay. We'll see what happens. Family's good, at least, though my little brother is a little shit and just turned 17. Where the hell has the time gone?


      Well, that's my short update on life even if it has been almost a year. Hope everybody here is doing well!

    • Woah...

      3 years ago

      Shotgunchief

      Things changed quite a bit...

      I'm alive! Again. Shit, it's been almost two years now since my last journal. I can't even remember the last time I signed in, but WOW I've been on this website for over ten years now. THAT'S A DECADE! Fucking hell...

      Still playing the Old Republic, with GTA V and Rocket League sprinkled in. I even started playing Modern Warfare 2 again, just for shits and giggles. Destiny and Unity were a flop, but I played the shit out of Dragon Age: Inquisition for a while, because wow that game was amazing. I need to pick up the new DLC still. MC Collection was nice once the game finally started working. SO PUMPED for all the games coming out this year - SWTOR expansion, Halo 5, Battlefront, Fallout 4... Good year to be a gamer.

      Real life has been kind of kicking my ass, with my parents divorcing, adopting a cat and finding out seven months later she has a terminal disease, and two hospital visits in the past five months. All's good now, as far as my health goes, and family stuff has settled down, but cat is getting worse. Probably won't be long now... but I'm just making the rest of her time the best and filled with tuna.

      To end on a much lighter note, I still work at the same company, but I've worked my way up to Supervisor and have a team of sixteen employees. It's a totally new experience, actually being the boss and telling people what to do and remembering you're an adult. I'll say stuff, then rewind in my head and be like, 'hey dipshit, you're the authority now, can't say things like that'. I miss the designing aspect, but I can do that at home, and the paycheck is sooo worth it.

      Well... there's a life update for you folks who still linger. Coming back here is a happy-sad experience, because there's so many damn good memories that I wish I could relive. Fuck being an adult. :P

      Until next time.

      Shotgun out.

    • Hey

      Shotgunchief

      So... I'm not dead.

      Seven months. New record? Probably. Don't really sign on much here anymore, if that wasn't obvious by now.

      Graduated, got a job, work third shift at a design company that creates ads for newspapers and magazines. I'm really enjoying it, awesome atmosphere, cool people, and I get to do something I enjoy.

      Gaming has pretty much consisted of GTA V/SWTOR, but given I've been working 50+ hours each week I haven't had as much time to play. Good thing I have OT though as I just had to drop nearly 1k on my car to get it fixed.

      Hope you guys are all doing good, and have a good Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate).

      Shotgun out.

    • Graduation

      6 years ago

      Shotgunchief

      So I'm about to graduate from college... Pretty crazy to think about, given I signed up on this website in eighth grade.

      What's everyone else up to nowadays?

      Shotgun out.

      P.S. If you're bored, or curious, some writing I've been doing. Figured I haven't posted anything in 5ever.

      The sound of the door sliding open and then closed echoed around the small interior of the cargo hold, magnified by the metal walls that surrounded them. Yet, Beviin took no notice of the Jedi Master's entrance as Vivek settled into the corner - all of her focus was on the cowering man in front of her. Ahart looked pitiful, with fresh cuts and bruises, tears streaming down his cheeks, curled up in the fetal position. Far from gaining any sympathy, this only further fueled the Special Forces soldier's anger as she reached down, grabbing the blubbering man by the collar and pinning him to the wall. A wave of lightheadedness washed over her momentarily, a reminder of the toxins still running through her system, and the urgency of the situation caused her to slam the man once more against the wall.

      "I have questions." Beviin's voice was low, cold, the danger that Ahart was in communicated clearly by the tone of her voice. "You have the answers to these questions. If you do not give me these answers, we will be here for a very. Long. Time. Do you understand?"

      "I'm only a pawn!" Ahart screamed, cringing away from Beviin as she held him up. "Please, I was just hired, I didn't mean any of-" His voice was cut off by the Major's fist as it connected with his jaw, stopping him mid-sentence as he cried out in pain.

      "I said do you understand?" She snarled, not even hiding the anger she felt for the man. He was responsible for forcing her on the run, hiding from the Republic like some kind of terrorist. The fake information, the false accusations, they all stemmed from this bastard. It was this man who led a Sith to her father, beating him down in the cantina and hacking off his hand. The image of Colyen lying on the ground, bleeding and broken, infuriated her and led to another swing into his gut.

      "Okay, okay!" Ahart cried, trying to double over from the pain but unable to due to Beviin's grip. "I... I'll tell you... what I can." It was a roundabout answer, a way for him to continue to hide, but for right now it was all she was going to get.

      Holy shit.

      Eight years ago I signed up.

      That's a long fucking time.

      So yeah... Anybody still here?

    • *pokes my head in*

      It's been a long time... a very long time. With Halo 4 right around the corner I figured I'd pop back in. Yeah, the site just isn't the same for me anymore... which is a shame, but I'm hoping Halo 4 brings back that love where Reach failed to do so.

      So, my life... very busy. Work, school, and a hell of a lot of projects my senior year has made it so I haven't had much time to game. This past week or two has been nice, haven't had much to work on, but next week things will be picking back up and unfortunately it's right when teh Haloes releases. smiley4.gif

      Assassin's Creed 3 has slipped my grasp, only because I can't afford it. Fortunately my older brother is willing to let me borrow his copy as soon as he's done with it. He's all big and bad now that he's moved out and got a full time job. smiley6.gif

      Still playing SWTOR. I've also been playing a lot of TF2 recently, what with Mann vs. Machine and then the Halloween event. If you haven't played either I highly recommend it, both are a lot of fun.

      As far as life goes, I'm going to stop working at Best Buy while I'm taking classes. The store here in Iowa City... fucking awful, management is terrible, everyone around me are lazy and hate their lives, it's just stressful and depressing going to work every day. Soooo... I say fuck it. Gonna try and find a different job in town, something more college student friendly given BBY wasn't going to let me go home for Thanksgiving or Christmas... fuck that shit.

      School itself is going all right. I'm in my second to last semester, though I'm currently struggling with a class I wasn't planning on taking. It's an art history class, and it's more tailored to graduates than undergraduates. Given I have no interest in the subject (French artists) and I was forced to take the class (the class I wanted to take, Web Design II, had to be dropped due to lack of sign ups a week before classes started) it's been rough. We'll see how that goes, but everything else has been going well. Graphic Design is by far the best - my homework this weekend is to watch "The People vs. George Lucas" and take notes for my project, which is a Star Wars ebook... yep.

      Um... I think that's all the big stuff. I'm not going to go into all the little stuffs as that would be one hell of a journal. I'll see about getting back on the website some more, but I ain't gonna make any promises.

      Take care all.

      Super, sweet, quick update.

      smiley9.gif I'm back from vacation... a month ago. smiley4.gif

      smiley9.gif I passed my portfolio review and I'm now on my way to earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design (fancy).

      smiley9.gif Plan on playing some dodgeball Sunday in a tournament representing Best Buy, totally looking forward to it.

      smiley9.gif The Seventh Virtue (TOR guild) has been greatly expanding, you should join us. Join us... Actually, our Mumble chat is usually pretty populated, especially around the afternoon/evening if you ever want to pop in and chat.

      smiley9.gif I'll be heading home in about a month after classes and are finished and once again working at my other Best Buy. Super excited to see friends again, and happy to be away from my douchebag manager here.

      As far as major updates go, I think that's pretty much it... I feel like I'm forgetting something important, but meh.

      Hope everyone here is doing well.

      If you didn't know I'll be leaving for Florida in a couple hours and will be staying in Orlando for a week. I'm excited; not only are we staying at a sweet place and going to Universal Studios, but I'll be getting the chance to meet up with Hilts. WHEW!

      I'm guessing the place we're staying at has Wi-fi, but if not, I shall see everybody on the 19th! Take care!

      • Shotgunchief

        6 years ago

        Pretty much... If you want, I can pass on the baton to you and see if you can revive it a bit, get some new members, but given I'm helping run an entire guild in SWTOR I just don't feel like putting in the effort.

        And to the person who negged me... I can guess who you are, but do you really have to resort to such childish measures?

      • grif99

      Also, you stoked for Halo 4? :)

      • grif99

        6 years ago

        Oh, well. At least it sounds badass. Well, I might renew my LIVE gold and try and find + play with one or more of youse, since I got decent internet the horrifying lag might be gone... but if it's Halo time I'm following tradition and doing campaign first. :D

      • Shotgunchief

        6 years ago

        Hell yeah! Totally looking forward to it.

        As far as the Vanguard thing goes, I'm the Vanguard class in both Mass Effect and SWTOR, and I also might be using the Vanguard armor in Halo 4. smiley6.gif

      we all know it to be true bev XD.

      but no, at first she's going to be understanding...then she finds the holocron, and learns what viv was. Ahkei prouposly left out that he was the leader, cause in this time line she is the leader of the seventh virture, because she is the one tasked to find everyone. anyways, im sure Viv's decendent is going to put up a fight, but i also know that she doesnt' know that Ahkei is force sensitive, and knows how to use it thanks to her mom....she just doesn't like using it, and most of the time refuses to.

      so it's going to be a fun chapter to write lol
