      If anyone ends up reading this, thank you.

      As you will have noticed I barely ever post journals, and I barely ever post comments in any thread either. The only reason I come on anymore is just to download the Drunk Tank podcast and watch RvB, and also I can waste time my going through all my alerts.

      So now while I have the time I've decided to finally post another journal and give a little update on what's happening in my life.

      Start with the easiest stuff to talk about: University crap. I finished 1st year a couple of weeks ago, and have started studying for my exams in May. Got four to sit in May, and one to sit in August since I was ill during the first set of exams and missed one. So I get to go and take my 1st attempt with all the people who failed first time round smiley4.gif

      So far I have yet to get a job, haven't really tried that hard since I have enough to do me for a while and I can't really be bothered. I do realise that's a very bad attitude to have, however my exams are the most important things in my mind.

      Myself and four friends have secured a flat for 2nd year, it's in a good location and I'm really looking forward to that. Still need to organise internet, insurance and whatnot but we're not moving in until August so we've got time.

      Now a couple more serious points. Something I haven't talked about much to anyone really, my parents split up back in September on my frist day of Uni. It's been niggling away at the back of my mind since and I can't find a way to express how I'm feeling about it. It doesn't help that my brother seems unphased by it as he'd lived away from home for two years at that point.

      Also my Gran (Dad's Mother), suddenly became paralysed below the neck and had to go to hospital. No-one thought she'd live for very long past that but as of now she's been moved to another hosiptal and has recovered some movement in her arms, but Dad told me the doctors don't think she'll ever walk again.

      Generally I don't like telling people about my problems because I'm always of the opinion that other people will probably have their own problems which will be worse than mine but since this is the first time in forever than I feel I can say something about it, then I have done. (I'm shocked at how how badly worded that sentence is, yet I can't make it any better smiley4.gif ).

      If you're still reading by this point I thank you again, I may try to post somewhat more regularly should I get the urge but otherwise goodbye.

    • Update

      Over the past 2/3 months I've kept thinking about writing an update on what's going on in my life. Now is the first time I've actually bothered to do so smiley4.gif

      So I'll start with september: I moved into Hermits Croft (uni flat) and have started uni, infact I've got exams starting next week and I still haven't done any revision smiley7.gif

      I met a bunch of people in the first week who have become my main group of friends, half of whom do chemistry so we always go to lectures together and such. Also joined three societies in the first week, Chocolate, Gaming and Computer. Been to ChocSoc the most, only been to the toher two once each as GameSoc only does a lan every 3 weeks and I've been busy at those times, and I'm not actually techy enough to be part of CompSox. So free ChocSoc every tuesday is how I spend my time smiley6.gif


      Infact screw date order because I've forgotten what order things have happened in.


      I got a computer monitor to let me play my 360, didn't want a tv cause then Id have to pay the tv license fee. After setting up the monitor I realise it has no form of speakers smiley4.gif So I spent the next 2 weeks trying to get speakers and something called a female to female gender changer to allow my plugs to plug. Once I had that sorted my friend Matthew told me how to bypass the internet we have and actually get Xbox Live to work so that was nice, oh and got ODST and played the hell out of it. Very good game but little replay value once I had all the achievements. I did however complete it solo on legendary.

      Actually before I had speakers, I borrowed Mass Effect and completed it. It's very odd playing through a game for 16 hours and having to imagine all the sound effects.


      Moving onto november, I went to see Rise Against live at the O2 Acadamy in Newcastle. First time I'd ever seen a band play live and it was fantastic, they played all the songs that I knew and I sang and headbanged my way through the show. I had a very sore neck the whole week after smiley3.gif

      I was there with two friends, Anna and Bryn. We were trying to get back to our Travelodge after the concert and we got herendously lost and ended up in the roughest area of Newcastle and was very lucky that we managed ot get a taxi from there at 2 in the morning. Although we got lost the roads were so quiet that I decided to walk backwards across all four lanes of a dual carriageway, and all the way round a roundabout smiley0.gif


      And of course last week it was my 18th birthday, I got £295, a new phone and a hip flask. While 18 is the big age to reach in the UK because it's the legal age for buying alcohol, I don't drink so it's really that big for me. Although it does mean I can finally buy 18 rated games and such from stores.


      So yeah that's as much as I can remember about the past 2 or 3 months at the moment, and it's proabbly going to be the only journal for the next 2 or 3 months as I don't really post that much on the site anymore. I'm still online almost everyday, I just don't bother being very active but I always make sure I listen to the Drunk Tank.


      PS. I love you all... sexually.

      I've noticed that my past few journals have been about things which just don't matter in the real world, so I am going to change that by talking about something that actually matters.

      After weeks of waiting I have finally received an offer for accommodation in Edinburgh where I will be staying for my 1st year of Uni smiley0.gif The address is 1 Hermit's Croft, which is a few minutes closer to the King's Buildings (Chemistry section) than my first choice of accommodation is. All I've got to do now is accept and get my parents to pay for it and I'll be good to go.

    • Wanted for Genocide

      Sijore

      I can now add both GTA4 and L4D to my 100% list as I earned both Wanted and Genocidest today. If you don't know what the Wanted achievement is, it requires you to be rank 10 for which you need $5 000 000. The fastest way to do this is to play Hangman's NOOOSE which gives $4500 for 3 minutes work (2 minutes if I'm playing with competant people, which I'm not most of the time). That works out as over 1000 plays and well over 100 hours, so yeah I'm done with that and now that I've finished L4D I have no more games to play smiley2.gif

      I just hit 10 000 posts on the site (woot woot and all that). I've now just got to wait for my milestones to update. Which they won't because I have two other milestones which have not updated despite bettering them over 2 months ago.

    • Another complete waste of time.

      10 years ago

      Sijore

      Yeah so I decided to go through my journals and + mod every comment. It was quite odd seeing how immature and slightly emo I was when I first joined the site. I do hope I've improved a bit since then smiley4.gif

    • Well that was a complete waste of time.

      10 years ago

      Sijore

      I just went through all my 22 pages of comments and +1'd each one. If I'm presented with a counter, I feel compelled to do anything to increase it and so I have wasted some of my life increasing this one.

      I did actually find some interesting stuff though. I remembered all the people I used to talk to, I found the comment of K0Z first mentioning the BlackDawn (revealed on Day 00) and the time Gus blocked me because I commented on a suposadly locked journal.

      Well today marks 3 years of me on this site. Strangely enough I have kept almost all of the friends I added in those 3 years and have tried to keep my list small so I can be bothered to comment on journal/pictures etc.

      Also I completed Ninja Gaiden 2 on Mentor mode today. Only Master Ninja left to do smiley7.gif

      they changed it to cell shaded about halfway through development. I think it helps it set itself apart from other games out now. I heard alot of "OMG THIS JUST RIP OFF OF FALLOUT 3 BUT THEY MAED MOAR GUNS" and "DIS JUST RED FAKSHUN BUT NOT ON MAS" on forums and stuff.

    • MurcielagoAI

      9 years ago

      Ah. Yeah blood drive is terrible for submission in general IMO. I usually only play guardian. I spent the 1600 on All fronts pack and now i pretty much only play Horde with the other 2 friends i know that bought that. I kinda think it was a waste since they still haven't fixed the horribly broken multiplayer

    • MurcielagoAI

      9 years ago

      I saw those guys do that to the meat flag by going against a wall with it and then had 2 of their teammates grenade tag it. My friend un glitched it by hitting it with a mortar.

      I mostly find the Sandtrap scene and Lopez funny. But that's just for the last 2-3 episodes. The others weren't so funny.

      Yeah that is the most effective way. Which i myself have done a few times. But it just gets to a point where it's infuriating. At the pit everyone rushes and and spams grenades for the rocket spawn. I just get tired of Halo very quickly. I think bungie needs to put a warning that says multiplayer is best in small doses if you hate grenade spamming and weapon whoring.

      That's why I said they the funniest current running series. Old RvB is funnier though.

      Also, make damn sure you're in a major that you love. Or it'll be a fucking waste of time and money to go to college.

    • Tetrameth

      9 years ago

      First time ever in college?


      Well, for one thing, don't skip too many classes and fuck around doing nothing. Make sure you study for the important ones and half the easy classes there for breaks from hard ones. Fuck around on weekends if you're not taking classes on weekends. Make sure you pay attention to the majority of what your classes grade on. If a class is majority tests, then study for tests. If a class is mostly lab work or something, focus on that.

      Focus, focus, focus. Keep your eye on the prize, it'll benefit you in the long run. Don't do what I did freshman year at my first college. Which was skip classes due to laziness and hang out in the commuter lounge for a good part of the day. That wont' get you anywhere.


      Hope this helps.

      No they're 60 dollars like Xbox. PC is the cheaper one, that's why most of the games like COD, Fallout and Oblivion I got for PC plus you can mod them.

      Still look at it this way.

      Yeah, the What Are You Listening To thread was about 1500some posts when I came back.



      I would read about 100 pages a day at least while on vacation. Well, for the first week, I did. Sometimes I got up to 200 pages a day. But the second week I was kinda burnt out and didn't read too much until near the end of the week. I read the night before we left until the sun was starting to come up. I only did that because I was close to the end of the book and wanted to finish before getting home because I knew once I got home I'd probably be glued to the interwubs to read anything (provided the router issue was fixed, which it seems to be for now, miraculously).

      How about this? It is another piece from 'The Raven'.

      But the raven, sitting lonely on the placid bust, spoke only,
      That one word, as if his soul in that one word he did outpour.
      Nothing further then he uttered - not a feather then he fluttered -
      Till I scarcely more than muttered `Other friends have flown before -
      On the morrow he will leave me, as my hopes have flown before.'
      Then the bird said, `Nevermore.'

      I don't think that the stuff I wrote earlier will work for this. I will keep looking for a good piece of poetry.

    • Bayard FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold The uneasyDreamer

      I tried writing this one myself so don't be surprised if it sucks. I will keep looking for good stuff by other people as well.

      "From out the night the serpent slithers
      through the prey sending shivers.
      His dead eyes do mark the night and
      all fearful creatures flight.
      Through the shrouding night he goes
      though his goals none shall know."

    • Bayard FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold The uneasyDreamer

      That text is actually from 'The Raven' by Edgar Allan Poe.
