    • Well, School's Here Now

      Nothing really to say outside the title. I got a bunch of work to do. Some of it I should have been doing for a while now. Oh well...

    • Summer's coming, eh?

      12 years ago

      The_Mellor

      Well, it won't be a summer vacation for me. I've accepted that I am going to be working a pretty schedule from here on out. It's time to say goodbye to my school days. Life happens.

      It'll be nice to be around my family a little more, though I hope I will see some of my friends around. It's pretty easy to keep in touch when we all live within 5 city blocks of eachother, but not so much when we live across the state and even the country!

      I still want to hang out at school with my friends, obviously, but I'm committed to making this transition. It's time to see what I can do...

    • Growing up is so hard...

      12 years ago

      The_Mellor

      As I am here finishing my third year in college, it never fails to hit home that I will soon be out and on my own. Up til this point, I've had my family to fall back on for anything I might need or want. It especially hits home when I can't just drive or walk to my house like I could for the last 5 years since they moved 10 miles out of town.

      Probably the biggest factor in my anxiety is the prospect of having a full-time job that requires extra time outside of the normal schedule. I fear 'the man' and his ability to destroy me as a person. I don't want to be some mindless drone that generates income for some rich guy while getting little to no compensation. Perhaps even worse of a prospect is the hectic and high-pressure job which requires all my free time with the same lack of empathy or sympathy from the higher-ups. Can I find a job in which I'm respected, paid what I'm due, and don't have to spend all my time and energy completing?

      I guess what it all comes down to is that I don't want to completely give up a gamer lifestyle. I want to be able to do the fun stuff, to have fun. It has been my philosophy that one makes money in order to do what one wants to do in one's spare time. Of course, I want to enjoy my work, but I think I will enjoy my free time more. I simply don't want to work for the sake of making money for money's sake alone.

      If this all made sense to you, then congratulations. I don't think there's much more to say. I'll end up working either by this summer or certainly by next summer. I'll get over my anxiety and we'll see if I make the adjustment well or not.

    • I've been gone again. This is a trend.

      I keep skipping out on RvB and the forum. It's not really intentional, but I guess I can't keep up the effort required to always participate. It wasn't on my list of priorities while I was on my Caribbean cruise interterm. Besides, it would've cost me 75 cents a minute (on what I presume would've been a slow system) just to use the Internet. That's my current excuse for not participating over the last two months.

      BTW: If you want to see the pictures, look up Andrew Mellor of Doane College on Facebook,com.

    • Conquer Club member HaveABanana

      I am one of Conquer Club's newest members along with my brother, melloryellor. We are in two games together, though we haven't allied yet. I think we might though. 3 of my first games are looking pretty good. Don't ask about the very first. It's not over yet, but it might as well be. I think I have provoked my first vendetta. I took Australia from a guy named Kern and he went ballistic in a suicide-bomber rampage in an attempt to screw me over. I felt bad, but not enough to give it back. Poor guy lost his entire army to my 3 defenders. Yay random chance.

      If you play, look me up I guess. I generally do alright, but I'm not the best at Risk-esque games.

    • I love Axis & Allies

      12 years ago

      The_Mellor

      It's so hard to get a good game of A&A going. There just aren't very many people who like to play AND are good at the game. Last night, we got our game on. And it was awesome. To make things even better, one of my acquaintances who also happens to be an asshole ended up as Japan while I was on the allies as USSR. To make a long story/game short, we smashed Germany and neutralized Japan for the win, giving me bragging rights against my asshole acquaintance. He always talks about awesome he is as Japan. Maybe next time!

    • I finally joined the Guitar Hero craze

      12 years ago

      The_Mellor

      I gave in and bought Guitar Hero 2 with 2 guitars so I could play other people. Over the last 24 hours, I've been playing almost nonstop on Easy and Medium to get used to the game. My wrists and forearms have rarely been so sore..! It was pretty rewarding though. Despite what I may say to other people normally, I like games of that nature. I especially enjoyed Trogdor and Sweet Child O' Mine when they were given to me. I may have to invest in the first so I can play those songs....

    • I'm not dead. I guess.

      So it's been about 2 years since I messed with my profile according to the system. I've been busy and simply didn't bother to log in when downloading my RvB bliss. I've thought of becoming a sponsor, but nothing ever comes from it. As you can see, I am still alive. I wouldn't count on my active participation too heavily, though. Does that make me a bad person? Perhaps.

      It's getting to be Christmas again and I've got a few things to look forward too. Namely, I'm getting a new computer on which I can finally play new games. My old laptop just wasn't up to snuff for games this year. Well, see you all around. Or not? Who can say?

    • I'm back from....vacation....

      14 years ago

      The_Mellor

      My family went to New Orleans for the winter break. The total driving time was almost 4 days (daytime). We found out the hard way that New Orleans isn't much of a family vacation spot. It's a great place to go without your mom and little step-brother. I think that right there should give a good idea of what I had to put up with for the last week.

      Christmas was pretty cool though: I got some lounging clothes, some money, candy (and Tic-Tacs), Magic cards (including a whole Unhinged box), ESPN 2K5, calanders, and some other stuff.

      This will not interest probably any of you, I am just making it for my own record.

      I bought $30 of cards on Magic Source Online through Pay Pal. I will be getting some very nice cards here soon. While I was at it, I added a bunch of new images for my profile. I may be getting to be too much of a Magic geek.... Only time will tell.

      Good call. I don't like the idea of having to pay to play a game that I already paid for in the first place.

      That wasn't gear toward you. It was geared to that other dude. I was saying that every long lasting thread has had ALOT of spam. I'm glad that you did that.

      I just changed my mine; You belong in the FF7 thread. Trust me. No one in there really likes FF7 and EVERYONE there despises fanboy's very existance.
