Title: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-04-06 23:08:11
Okay so, I kind of got the idea to make this thread to keep people's life updates in one place and not have a metric ton of random life update threads everywhere.

So basically, if you have a major life update, like: if school gets super busy and you want to let people know you won't be on often, if a relative died and you won't be around, finals week, an earthquake ravaged your city and you won't have Internet, your mom grounded you and you're secretly online in the middle of the night now. Whatever the (major) update may be, this is where you put it. That way, when the crisis is over, you can neatly update the community without having to make a new thread to announce that you're back.

Does this sound fine and dandy for everyone? I felt it would help keep things more organized.

Sounds good to me. :3

I don't really have any major life updates to really announce on my end. Everyday's the same-- eat draw game sleep. XD If I'm not on the forum posting I'm likely just on Skype chatting with pals and drawing.

Blurr... That's not the point of this thread *falls to the ground*
If you have a major life update, like: [examples]. Whatever the (major) update may be, this is where you put it.
This is what this thread is for. It's for major news that affects your time on the forum. Not a casual tell us the happenings in your life. Please do read better. Thank you.

But he was also saying the idea was a good one, which was answering a question I asked. But yes, I do realize that now as well. From now on, this is strictly for major life events that will affect your time on the forum.

This is a minor update to everyone, but I will be gone unless I come online till Sunday.  Just wanted you all to know as I head to the land of the Midnight Sun.  The last frontier.

Take care and hopefully talk to you all soon. 

UPDATE: I have my laptop, but I won't necessarily have time to be on.

It is the final 3 days of classes and then finals week happens. I made a journal on da but I need to say this here too. I will not be active and I may even be gone for days at a time without logging on. There is a lot of pressure right now happening to me. Feels like a weight on my brain honestly... I will do the best I can but I know that as much as I want to be here on psf A lot I know I can't until things are done.

If I do get too stressed I know where to go to ease my stress :) this place is an amazing place. Thank you guys for making this place awesome :) I would write down specific names but I have to go to classes today in 5 minutes. I wanted to take a minute to say this before I go so you guys are not worried about me if I don't log in for a day or two at a time during my final days of school.

I know I am not the only one who is stressed or busy. Everyone, good luck with what you are doing. Be safe and do what you can do :)

Hey, so I may not be myself really or have much new for a bit.  I'm going to try and get over it as fast as I can.  But my girlfriend of three years said tonight to me she thinks it would be best if we stopped seeing each other.  I asked for a reason and she said that it would be best for our futures.  She said she really wants me in her life still and I was like the greatest person she'd ever known and all, but... I don't know.  If all that is true, why did we break up?  I had no hints this was coming.  Everything was going great. :-/  What was worse is she didn't break a tear until the very end.  I was the cry baby, and I tried really hard not too. :-/  I just don't know how you throw away all we had together away so suddenly and easily. :( 

Okay, I will stop talking now.

I'm sorry, APD. That is unfortunate but hopefully better in the long run.  I can tell you though, that everyone at some point in their life, will deal with the same horrible feelings you are feeling.  We are here for you, bud.

We are here for you, APD.  Sorry about that, it is grueling, but try to not have it eat away at you.  Sounds like she really respected and liked you and nothing can take away the memories you made together. 
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-05-09 06:21:24
Oh man wow, that's terrible. I feel like I'm getting a sense of dejavu, this has happened before, right?
Man, I don't know what to say. Is she going through something tough right now? I recommend talking with her, let things cool down a little and maybe try talking with her and trying to find out exactly why she wants to break it off. Even if at the end of it you still stay apart, you'll have the closure of knowing why it happened. It may be that romantic feelings just died down, and while she still thinks your a great guy, there's no spark there anymore. I'm not sure what her reasonings are, but I'm big on communication.
I mean, if she at the end did cry, it was painful to her, so... I'm not sure where I was going with that. If things don't work out, you still have the good memories. Don't let it drag you down, you will survive as that song goes. It's hard at first, but over time the sting will fade. We're here if you ever need someone to talk to.

Good to hear from you again, I was beginning to worry. ;)



I guess this is the sort of thing the thread's for.  One of my dogs developed a mass which I had sampled last Friday, and while the results aren't conclusive there's a strong indication it's pre-cancerous at the very least.  I'll probably still be around to keep myself distracted, but if I seem terse or miss responses, don't take it personally.And apologies to those who came by in chat; when I do use chats I tend to leave them open whether I'm actually at the keyboard or not, so fairly often I'm essentially drooling down my chin and staring into space when you catch me there.


Oh no!  If you caught it early, you can hopefully do something about it though. 
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-07-01 04:32:37
Ah, I'm so sorry to hear that Hulk! And no problem, we understand. If you caught it early, there's a good chance removing the mass will take care of it. I believe sometimes they might want to do ultrasounds to check if there are more masses, but that's usually with animals that are also exhibiting signs of not being well. But that might just be the clinic I worked at, they had a bunch of shiny toys.

I hope things go well for your dog.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Smiles2us on 2016-07-01 10:18:48
I do hope you can take care of it.  Do not delay, Hulk.

Nice to see you Patripony. :)

Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Silverwing on 2016-07-01 11:33:39
I really hope it works out since you caught it, sounds like early.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-07-03 07:21:47
Wow, I can imagine that's pretty nerve racking. Are they going to have a specialist look at the sample as well so they can be 100% sure?

I really really hope all goes well for your dog. (S)he's a good looking dog. German Shepard in her?

As for what's the more appropriate thread, it's your call. I think it's fine here.

Aw, that's good news!
It's really sad when you can't tell your animal why they have to wait, why you seem to be doing nothing. And it hurts so much when you can't do anything for them. But help is coming soon, and hopefully it will alleviate his pain. For his paw, perhaps try putting socks on him? Don't know if he's the type to just pull 'em off, but it might help a bit.

I hope all goes well.

Ah that was smart of them to take the skin around it too. Can't be too careful with masses like that.
But wow, unreal how fast they can grow. It's good they got it off, but now to wait for te results. Here's to hoping they're in his favor. He's in my thoughts.

Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-07-15 10:24:01
Yeah, I think there's also some correlation with them eating and hard exercise/running afterwards. It's crazy how fast an animals condition can deteriorate. And even scarier when you know they can't tell you somethings wrong.

That's good, nice and easy simple steps. That's so sweet how you take the time to feed him a kibble bit at a time. So spoiled :P and whoops! It happens to the best of us, as long as he wasn't hurt.

I'm happy for you Hulk :)

Life update for me: stupid drivers on the road = LOTS of stressful encounters. I swear I have someone unseen watching out for me because there's been a few close encounters with serious car crashes that I've had the past week =(

Other than drivers being in the wrong lane and construction on main roads making delivering pizzas a living nightmare, I made over 1000 dollars in two weeks =) Every dollar went into my next college semester payment, but it's still 1000 dollars less than what I had to worry about before. I'm thankful for having work. It's just time consuming =(

There've already been reports of accidents from people hunting Pokemon while driving.  I think that might just be a teensy bit worse than talking on the phone while at the wheel.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-07-23 16:37:34
First, congrats on the good news for your dog, Hulk. Just gonna have to keep an eye on his paw for reoccurances. Which I hope doesn't happen, looks like they did the right thing when removing the skin around the mass to be safe.

Okay as someone who let my sister play it while I'm driving... Why would you?? Literally almost no Pokemon pop up, it's very rare and only when you're going slow, and if you do pass pokestops you most likely are going so fast that you don't get the chance to spin it. It's so stupid.

Thank you APD and Soda! I really appreciate the comments. I also completely agree with Hulk and LP. Pokemon go is everywhere, but honestly I don't think that app was responsible. Some drivers just plain get confused or get road rage or plain miss a turn. I see things happen every day. I try to avoid conflict on the road as much as humanly possible.

Post by: HulkbowSMASH on 2016-07-24 00:54:03
It just sounds like one of the latest things to add to nutty driving, and could get worse as more start playing.  About all you can do is drive like everyone else is insane and try to always have an eye on escape routes in case evasive maneuvers are needed.  So be safe and drive carefully...while, of course, getting those pizzas delivered on time.

So, I took my computer to my old school. Unfortunately he couldn't fix it on site but he sent me instructions on how to fix the problem. Crossing my fingers that it works. If not I have to dig around and look for old discs the laptop came with to restore it. But that means saving everything and backing it all up. Something I don't want to do. But this is my last ditch effort to save my computer. If it doesn't work, I'm gonna be forced to cough up the money for a good one and somehow make the decision in less than a week. Or else I'm toast for the school year.

Also, I got my updated drivers license. And I hate it. I look fat in the picture >_> Guh.

Going back to college soon. And I can't wait. Finally get away from this place. I'll miss my dog and my dad. Not much else really. So yeah... This week is going to be busy. With packing and doing last minute things to get ready to go back to school.

Lol.  No one ever likes looking back on their license pics. They either get old or fat. ;)  I'm sure you are overreacting on yours, but yeah, lol, I know the feeling.

I do hope the laptop fix will end up working, and hope college goes good.  Glad you are excited.

I know, I know.  It is a thing to be nervous about.  But your positive, Miggs is that you get to go home to regularity.  First days are usually just orientation of the class.  A welcome.  Don't get too worked up. :)

Should have talked about this earlier.  Try not to be nervous hun.  But I am gonna be honest, I had butterflies too.  But when you get there, you will realize tons of other are in the same position as you, even if they don't show.  It is a normal human emotion to feel nervous at new things.  Just tackle it head on, and by the end of the first day, maybe even the first class, you won't be nervous.

Just be warned, the syllabus' they pass out will be far more scary then the classes actually are.  ;)

No but yeah, they usually go over it with you anyway in class. It's simple, the rules and stuff. Nothing too crazy. And don't feel too nervous, it's gonna be fun :) you'll meet tons of new people and learn new things. It's a great experience. You're not staying on campus though to live? Interesting, it usually is more economic though. Good luck, friend!

Sorry to derail but... Computer is not fixed.
I had two big problems. The solution I was sent only fixed one, which didn't allow me to do anything and made the computer super slow. However, after I reset it, I was excited to see my computer register wifi... Only for it to not matter because I STILL CAN'T CONNECT TO THE INTERNET! Gaaaah!

And Google gives overly complicated answers on how to fix it. Using terms I don't completely understand and mentioning opening things I don't know where to find

I hate Macs.

It was 4 years old but still ran very well. The problems only happened when computer forced the Windows 10 update.

And I have no idea Miggs. I don't even know what that stuff is or how to fix it. Windows always gives me the "couldn't automatically detect the serves proxy" or something like that when I troubleshoot the wifi.

I hate Macs.


Thats not a good reason. ;)  They are wonderful computers.  Whenever people tell me they hate them, they have no reason other then it's different to the PC they grew up with.

I switched to Apple several years ago and would never go back. 
Title: Re: Life Update Thread

Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-08-23 16:46:15
I don't like them.

Trust me, I dislike people who hate things cuz they're different looking than what they're used to. Like how people bitch and moan about how the Skype updates suck when they don't. They just look different. But I actually can't stand Macs. They're fine for personal usage and what not, not really for hard work. But I can't stand the trackpad, I can't stand the keys. I've tried working with them and they just aggravate me. Also, I don't really ever see anyone gaming on a Mac. So... There's that too.

My parents are willing to help me with getting a new computer, since I need it. But they are expensive. Especially ones that will reliably work for a long time and can withstand heavy workloads and tons of tabs open (like when I update the SneezeWiki. I sometimes have over 30 tabs open including school work). And then one that can also at least run simple games. But don't tell my parents that haha.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: RainySunshine on 2016-08-23 16:51:36
I don't like them.

I'll just say this.  I use my for video editing, like hardcore editing.  I used it for sound editing and recording for my friends musical group.  I have to sometimes combine the separate instruments together with the vocals.  Photo editing and all my artwork, combined with a tablet.

I use basics such as graphing and word processing for work, as well as taxes and other info thingies. 

It is connected to my phone and FaceTime (which I don't use a whole lot), but the computer gets my texts and I just type out my texts from my laptop to my friends and it sends it back out as a text to them.

This computer is already over 5 years old, but has all the current updates, because Apple releases them all for free.  Never had adware, malware, or a virus.  Never had a problem, has always worked.

I play Cities Skylines on it, which is very intensive, as well as some other strategy games like Civ and even have Total War working on it.

But to each their own.  I used to be a PC guy, but I took a blue screen to the knee one to many times.

Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: RainySunshine on 2016-08-25 15:30:22
I'm sorry.  I should have done better.  I did a dumb.  I usually am so thorough...

I've only seen two scenes of that movie.  The Dad being a whiney wimp to his son, and some sky falling scene.  I saw the first scene twice.  No more then 10 minutes of my life I have spent on that film.  Is it really horrible? 
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: 1234 on 2016-08-25 15:30:39
Watched it when I was a little kid. Of course, back then, I wasn't able to really make the difference between good movies and bad ones, so I didn't know I was suffering. XD

I mean, seriously, I would've watched The Room, I would've thought it was the best movie of 2003. XDD
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-08-25 15:34:49
It is god awful Rainy. Like, it's just a disgusting movie.
It's so incredibly mean sprited. And coming from a person who likes when kids shows do have some level of that, this takes it to a new level. The kid character is like saying he wants his dad approval, but what he clearly wants is his dad to at least love him. Not wish he didn't exist. It's just... God. It's like, Disney's lowest of the low.

Even as a kid, I for some reason couldn't stand this movie. As I got older I forgot about it. When I saw it again as an older child I realized why I didn't like watching it as a kid.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: RainySunshine on 2016-08-25 15:38:09
Wait, his Dad doesn't even love him?  What the heck?  Does he not have a Mom? 
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-08-25 15:43:25
His mom is dead, par Disney course.
I mean, from what you get from the movie, the dad is a horrible human bean (that's a chicken). He never stands up for his son, acts embarrassed to be even related to him, tells him to just lay low and not draw attention to himself so he doesn't embarrass the both of them, and only just maybe shows him a bit of love when his son does something that is amazing in sports. That's the only moment he bonds with his son. And then right after that as soon as his son needs him but it would come at the cost of his losing face he turns his back on him. It's really just a wretched movie that Disney should be ashamed to have made.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread

Chicken Little doesn't really do anything wrong. He's just small and a runt. And everyone mocks and makes fun of him. He's treated like a big loser. The town is actually chill with his dad. He's some old school hero or something. But they start to hate him when Chicken Little does the whole sky is falling thing.

Eh *shrug* recall I'm an easily annoyed person, people doing idiotic things get on my nerves so maybe it's just me. It's one of the side characters. I don't think it's enough to ruin the film, as I still enjoy it despite that.

So I know this shouldn't bother me... but it sort of does.

I found out today my former girlfriend has a new boyfriend and apparently he is a jerk who treats her very poorly. 

I feel bad knowing she got a new boyfriend so fast (like did she secretly already have him when with me???  maybe???) and I feel worse that this guy is using her.

I guess there really isn't anything I can do... and probably it's best not to think of "what ifs" and ask questions... but... I don't know... any thoughts?  This happen to anyone before?  Why do so many girls fall for complete jerks?  I was nice, and I know many nice people who can't seem to find anyone.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2016-09-18 17:30:42
It should bother you, APD, seeing someone you care about being used.

And usually, sometimes girls go for a guy as soon as they break up because they want to be in a relationship again. It does feel bad when someone finds someone so fast after a breakup. It sucks.

It may feel awkward, and like weird, but I really feel you should bring it up with her. Make it clear you're not trying to get back something you had, but you still care for her and don't think it's right that she's with this douche bag who's just using her. She deserves better.

Title: Re: Life Update Thread

APD: Yeah... that is tough. If try to talk to her (based on my experience) you will kind of be shunned or not treated too well, and it might hurt you more, in all honesty, APD.  Not everyone is the same, and she probably still does care about you.... ahhh... I don't think I can help in this situation honestly, I will come off as too blunt.  All I'm trying to say is you may come out more hurt trying to help her.  Don't do the worrying for her, place your worry into something beneficial.  I'll message you what I mean. 


Paws: You have indeed been busy.  I haven't heard of Visual Snow in years.  I remember someone I sort of knew had that, and I had forgotten about it.  I really do hope everything else works out for the best.  Glad to hear you got some good summer experiences as well. :)  Nice to see you post again, missed you.

Thank you for the feedback everyone.  I really did appreciate it.  It just really bugged me, because I don't want to see anyone hurt, especially someone I had... still do... have feelings for.  I need to get over her though, I know that....  I just don't know how she can forget us so fast and move on, even if she is just looking for a new companion, how can she just ignore what we had going on....... ugh... I'm such a wreck right now thinking of all this emotional gunk.  Pbbbhhtt.

(http://swimmingintheinkwell.deviantart.com/journal/Proper-Journal-Update-634813733)

I've been pretty overwhelmed lately, but I do lurk almost every day. And I miss talking to you fine folk! I've been way more active on my blog but hopefully I'll also be back at it again here soon.


Oh my goodness!  Look how busy you are with good and not so great stuff.  But I am sure in the end it will be good, and if there is an issue, they'll know how to make it better. :)  Keep you in my prayers.

That really sucks Paws. Do you have like ADHD? I know I do, fortunately with like therapy and stuff I've been trying school without meds. I hope you figure out what's going on and those hormone tests go alright.

I have shown signs of ADD/ADHD for years. I wouldn't be surprised if I come out diagnosed with one of the two by the end of all this.
I've been formally diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (and Asperger's, but it turned out to be a misdiagnosis), and I've been off medication for at least six years now. I've always just sort of been *managing* as far as my anxiety goes, though I still get overwhelmed very easily, and I did struggle with thoughts of depression through the course of the summer (which is also something I've never been diagnosed with but I suspect I have).  And really, my hormones have always been sort of out of whack and closely related to how and when my anxiety flares up, which is why we think some of the answers might lie in there.

Funny enough, my mom had suggested taking me to get my hormones checked just before I found out that I have Visual Snow. I had been doing okay up until that point, and then the VS discovery sort of threw things out of whack again.

Odd that you haven't been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD then. But if you do have it and if they get you on the right meds, it really helps. And then hopefully slowly you'll be able to not need the meds. It's great.  I get what you mean about anxiety. It's rough sometimes. And yeah, hormones tend to mess things up. I know mine were messing shit up, but eh, we righted it a bit.

Huh , how interesting. But if you've had VS this whole time, haven't you already sort of learned to cope with it? Or has it just suddenly started happening?
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: RainySunshine on 2016-09-19 22:46:16
Geez.  All that stuff going on.  I really do hope it all works out.  Sometimes those things, with proper meds or work outs, actually do go away.  I know someone who eventually didn't have to take meds for some of that stuff.

Exercise does help with ADHD, I do have to say. I remember the semester my parents forbade me from swimming, which I had been doing apprx 4 times a week. My school work deteriorated, and I was really depressed. It wasn't until my therapist basically told them, that no, exercise helps because it kinda gets all that extra steam out of your system so you can concentrate better. Those were dark times...

But yeah, I hope for the best on all your tests and stuff and if you do get some bad news that you'll be able to correct or get help with it :)

I accidentally tore up the charging port on one of them. The other one got an exposed headphone wire stuck inside of it.

So wait. It's not broken then?... It just had a headphone wire stuck in it? Can't you still use the second one? Did you break them on the same day.

FOR CLOAF

The closest Geek Squad to you is in Spokane, 114 miles away.... or the Tri-Cities, 113 miles away.  You truly do live in like... the most out of the way, most random town, anyone could ever live in. 

But there is probably.... NOT... a local computer shop.....  But there is computer shops in the other mid-sized towns around you, Try going to Walla Walla or certainly Pullman has something for all the college students.  Also Lewiston and Clarkson would have computer shops, but no Best Buy's...yet.    All the towns I just mentioned all have colleges, so they would definitely have computer shops to repair student's and their stupid behaviors. 

I did more searching, and your town has a place to possibly get a computer fixed.  It is called, "USA COMPUTER TECH COMPUTER RESCUE."  Real good name.  It is on the east end of town somewhere past a NAPA Auto Parts.  I can't find the business building... but they have a number, might be worth asking where they even are... could be some dude in his garage for all I know.

(509) 730-5576  <---- Their number.

Hope that helps, Claof. 
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Captain Ridiculous on 2016-09-20 19:09:06
Claof, that is unfortunate.  You don't live in a place with many services, per say.  But if you and your family do all your shopping in nearby Clarkston, like a Walmart or Costco or something, then there are several computer shops there.  I know that.  Also Walla Walla, in the opposite direction has a handful of computer shops and repair clinics.  I can think of one in College Place (little town right next to Walla Walla).  They run for the college students and the farmers who are running their operations in the 21st century, I jest not.  There are some real techy farmers out there.  Wineries are pretty technology driven.

If you have to have a the Geek Squad guys... they will probably charge a pretty penny coming from one of the Best Buy store's in either Spokane, Kennewick, or Pasco.  No matter what, it is over a 100 mile drive for them, one way.  Luckily those black and white Volkswagen Beetles get decent enough gas mileage.

Before trusting a small town repair man, check their reviews, if they have any, online first.  Maybe ask some people at school where they get stuff repaired, because certainly someone has had to need something repaired before in that town.  Otherwise, go to one of the larger cities and get it done the next time your family goes on a shopping trip to load up.

Don't know why you'd say where you live on the Internet. That's pretty dangerous. And I know some sites forbid you from saying your town or anything more specific that state for your safety and all. They can't guarantee some creepo won't see that info.

Finally have a few updates on my current health situation!

About three weeks ago, my mom and I went out to the endocrinologist, where I ended up getting sent off to do both a blood test and a 24-hour urine collection. There were a couple of possibilities of what could have been going on with me -- high testosterone, high cortisol, or even potentially cysts and/or polyovarion cystic syndrome -- so she had me do both the blood test and the collection as a thorough check.

We just got the results yesterday, and as it turns out, I don't have any of those (thank goodness)! It turns out I have a Vitamin D deficiency and slight anemia. Which actually does explain a lot about my energy levels in general. The Vitamin D deficiency is something I've had for years & used to take supplements for, though, so this didn't come as any great surprise.

I'm still looking into seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist regardless -- mostly because my mental state is still pretty shaky and if there is something wrong that I can get treatment for, I would want it.

Hey, so I'm going to be gone a day.  I'm going to go visit my Grandmother.  I usually talk to her once a week, we are really close, but for some reason no one is picking up the phone and I haven't seen her in a few months.... so.... kind of spur of the moment, but I'm going to go drive over right now and see how she is.

Something isn't sitting right with me that no one is picking up her phone... but I am trying to ignore that.

See you guys in a day or so.  (She has no internet or cell coverage around her house).

Thank you for your concern everyone.  She was fine, and it turns out her phone company had been updating their lines and her phone was out for five days.  I couldn't believe a phone service would do that for so long.  It took them a week, but I guess they assumed everyone had cell phones. Well not Granny.  They got her phone line fixed, as well as everyone else in the area, the other day. 

I will be honest, I was really nervous driving up there.  I was... kind of expecting the worst.  As you all know, this year has been kind of hard on me.  So I didn't have a whole lot of confidence and was worried how I would handle the situation.  I didn't want to see what I was worrying about.

I had opened it up, because something had gotten inside it. I tried getting it out with the end of my headphones. Unfortunately I forgot that the end was made of metal. I had also dropped it many, many times. Basically, it was held together with duct tape for a few years.

Snow is beautiful, and it can cause some cute sneeze situations in real life and fiction scenarios(seriously, when I try to look upwards while it snows snowflakes landing on my nose it causes me to sneeze XD)

I may take a break this week. I have so many tests and I'm not really in a solid mental state. Just really anxious and stuff. So I'm gonna try and keep to myself a bit and see if that'll help me focus. I'll still lurk. But yeah, busy busy busy for the next few weeks.

Thanks guys!  It wasn't too elaborate, I did it in our new apartment.  When she wandered off to measure something I snuck into one of the empty rooms then texted her phone something a friend drew for me.  After that well, that's personal :P

Just wanted to tell you guys, I won't be talking here as much as I used to.

There's stuff going on, and it's got me quite depressed. It's gotten to the point where I shouldn't say anything, out of fear of hurting people. That's how bad it is.

Don't ask what's happening. That's something I'd rather keep to myself. All I can say is, I'm in a painfully conflicting situation.

I won't be on for a while. Don't know how long. I've been so behind on schoolwork, that I've been getting around an hour of sleep each night. I've also been going through depression lately, and haven't had the motivation to do much of anything. Not even stuff I like to do. Other than that, my (already severe) social anxiety has been getting worse, and I've been getting way shyer. It's gotten to the point, I can't even handle talking to my best friend.

I'm back. I realized that I don't have any friends, nothing to do, so I couldn't stay away for more than a few days. My social anxiety has gotten so bad, I can barely be around my own family. It's been so frustrating that I have nobody I can talk to. I find I can be the most myself online (especially here).
Title: Re: Life Update Thread

Welcome back.  We are always happy to see you.  But at the same time, you gotta try to talk to people, or be around people.  You can't close yourself in, hun.  You got to find the source of your anxiety and why you started that behavior in the first place, then tackle it head on.

How bad does your anxiety actually get?  You have full blown panic attacks?
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Death Blossom on 2017-04-10 11:06:42
Anxiety can be hard to deal with, I understand that. As others have said, it would help to find a therapist. There's only so much "arm chair therapy" we can provide. Don't shut yourself in, don't "tough it out", if you need help there's no shame in seeking it out. Your family is also there to help you. I get the uncomfortableness one can feel with family, but at the end of the day, they should be willing to help you and acknowledge when you ask for help. I'm sure they'd appreciate you being honest with them about how you feel.

I instead want to say I'm alive and I have finals week next week. After that I will be free for a short while :D I just got to push through stuff. My last final is Thursday morning.

Not really too much of an update, but I guess here's some shit that went down over the past two days in my town. I dunno why I feel the need to share this, just, I dunno. Shit was pretty crazy.

I've never really experienced anything like it, you know? And it's not really anything special, everyone goes through a natural disaster at least once in their life. But basically we got kinda hit with a tornado, basically. I dunno if it was just the winds, or if it the thing ever touched ground, but to me it just seemed like real strong rain and wind. I dunno. The whole thing is real weird for me because I don't think we've ever gotten a tornado down here.

I don't even know if it should be posted in this thread :/

The canal area was more flooded than that. This was about an hour or two after the initial rain had stopped.

Yeah, it's fine, no serious damage aside from the fences, minor leaks, and broken shingles.


We didn't hide from it at all. Like, so it was basically tornado winds, but I don't think it actually hit ground, otherwise we would have been in a very much different situation.

The storm itself didn't last too long, but it did some damage, you know?
Title: Re: Life Update Thread

I don't know!  Never been in a tornado!  Don't like a region that has them.  I'm really happy you guys are alright though.  Maybe a good time to plan incase of a touch down tornado on where to go and stuff.  Do you guys have a cellar or a basement?

Glad you are safe.

Sunday's "downburst" led to power outages, flooding and structural damage at the World Trade Bridge between Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. The bridge was closed to traffic until further notice.

According to an NWS storm report, the downburst had estimated winds as high as 80 mph, and the damage path was about 6 miles long. The storms were also deadly, as 14-year-old Aldo Jordani Rojas was electrocuted when he stepped into a puddle that contained a downed power line, the San Antonio Express-News reported.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Silverwing on 2017-05-23 18:57:08
Sustained winds at 80 is high, but surprisingly still not as high as a tornado or hurricane!  Amazing it caused so much damage. 

I've had 80mph gusts here, but not sustained.

One of my biggest personal nightmares (don't get ANY IDEAS Nightmare Moon...) is having an incoming tornado happen in my general location. Way back when I lived in Texas there was a strong wind storm but no tornado and my younger self was in a big panic state of mind. XD

Seriously though, I'm thankful you didn't get hurt Miggs. Some damage can be fixed but a life lost cannot be fixed. *hugs* I hope you have a better summer =)

I know you're talking about the two people that died during the storm, but it's fucking crazy because a family member passed a day after our power came back.

But jesus, you've been really fuckin' busy with life, dude. You're real strong, though, toughing it all out at once at the same time. I'm glad you're OK though, that car shit is really freaky.

Are you getting paid for the shifts that you're taking, though? Because at the least, like, on the brightside, you'll be getting paid more, right?
Hope things clear out for you man. Best wishes.

Thank goodness you didn't get hit, Mysterysneeze.

So you got a brother heading away, and a sister incoming!  May I ask the reason, because I am not aware what happened in 2010-2014.  If it is personal, I don't need to know.  Missions trip or something? :)  That is both exciting and nerve wracking.  Glad you are okay though.

And having classes not work after you have your ideal classes set up is a HUGE annoyance.  I know.

Thank you guys =) I really appreciate the words.

Yes Miggs I did get paid more. Not overtime pay sadly, but I did get regular hourly pay.

Yeah I can explain Darrin ^^ it is totally ok. I know not everyone here knows me for that long.

It was from 2012-2014. I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints (Mormon :) it is much shorter to just say I'm a Mormon XD) I went on a two year church mission where I was practically gone from online entirely. My little brother is going to the country Hungary. My little sister returned from her mission in Boston. Anyone can choose whether or not they want to go on a church mission. I'm not gonna lie, I loved my mission and I learned a lot about the world and how to really care about other people and serving others. It was also really difficult some weeks too but my church mission was very worth it.

I won't be on much at all starting tomorrow.

Recently, so many bad things have going on.

     1: I tore my tendon and nerves in my hand

     2: A teacher that I can't stand is becoming the new principal. She has a worse bias against me than the other teachers.

     3: I was on the computer, and forgot to close... more than a few tabs. He saw my username (TheFetishPony) and is threatening to tell everyone I know about it. It's been a few days, and he still mentions my username, so he remembered it. If he does, suddenly all my fetishes will be
exposed.

     4: My trip back to Boulder, CO to see my friend, has been delayed by over two months.


Plus, I'm applying for my first job tomorrow. If I get it, that'll use up lots of my time.

Crumb!  So some loser, jerk friend saw the username?  :(  Quickly change all the usernames everywhere while you still have time. 

Also that stinks about the teacher becoming a principle. :(

Nvm.

Just to clarify, it's not the teacher, it's my nephew that knows my username. I guess I deleted that part by mistake. My nephew is an 11-year-old, who enjoys embarrassing me.

Depends where you usernames are, but almost every single website has user settings that lets you change your username.  You should know this, you are a computer guy.

I wouldn't be as worried about it though since it is an 11 year old.  They tend to forget and make stuff up.  No one will take them seriously.  But changing your usernames would be a extra precaution.
Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: AnyPoneDrawn on 2017-08-16 15:09:15
I just did a search of that username, TheFetishPony, on Google and the three main websites that it appears up on can all have their usernames changed.  DeviantArt is more stupid about it, and will only allow you to change your username once a year, so that will be a more permanent change.  FiMFiction and Pastebin are easy changes. 

Title: Re: Life Update Thread
Post by: Claof on 2017-08-21 23:27:55
I'm going to be on more now. Lot's of issues have gotten resolved.

My IEP mentioned that if the principal ever calls me in for something that isn't against the rules, or that wasn't me, I have the right to speak in only Latin or Italian while I'm in there. She can't do anything about it.

I still can't move my fingers because the tendon hasn't healed yet. That's good because the teachers can't make me write.

My nephew forgot the username, so I'm in the clear.

Dunno if it's just paranoia, but I'm anxious as shit about a hurricane that's gonna be hitting Texas. Most of it's going to be on the east, but we're going to be getting a shit ton of wind and rain. We have a much better roof that apparently is going to last 20 more years, but I'm still nervous. Dunno why I'm putting this here. Just...fuck.

I'm a bit anxious for both of you. But I know things will work out in the end.

Look here. THINGS WILL WORK OUT.

@System423 Awww, you're too sweet.  Thank you and I am nervous for you right now.  Was all day hearing the reports of the hurricane.  Watching the Weather Channel when I got home didn't help any. :P 

@1234 It's good for me. :)  Thank you for your support, Numberino!

I can tell you both that everything went really good... and now I am worried I will get the position. ;D I guess that is a good thing?  I'm so torn on this.

I'm watching it right now.  Looks like areas are losing power and could be out for several days.  That means no gas, no ATM's, no power at all!

Not really an update on the hurricane situation, but I guess to make light of it, my friend reblogged this on tumblr (http://fullmetalpikmin.tumblr.com/post/164639254003/beforecommon-me-a-texan), I just had to, also.

And my dad showed me this, from when Hurricane Rita was a thing.

Wellll it's been a while since I've shown my face around here, eh?

After a delay in getting started, I'm so glad to be reporting to you all from art school in the sunshiney state of Georgia!! Things have already been SUPER busy on my end and it's been weird trying to find my footing, but I'm determined to work hard and make the most of my experience! I've met a lot of cool people already and am slooowly working to building friendships with a few. It's a lot different than what I've been used to for the past two years, natch, but it's so good to be here and on the path to achieving my goals.

Hope you all are doing well!

Hey all. I've...been honestly not good. At all really. It's been a long while since I have logged on anywhere online. I'll explain in more detail later when I am able to.

Thank you guys so much for what you do =) You have supported me a lot and I hope to return when I can soon!
