Cavemonkynick posted a topic in The Journal ZoneHey everybody. I am Cavemonkynick, or just Nick for short. I'm currently 19 and am in my second semester at East Georgia College. I joined SFO a few years back but never really strayed to far past the Fan-Fiction fourm. Latley I've been getting a little more active, parcially due to my girlfriend joining the navy. She kinda was my social life, save like three other people, so yea. I sunk myself back into my fanfic for a while and got a bunch done. A buddy of mine dropped in on me a few weeks ago and finally read it and sugested I do a raido play. Sp i put it out there and got decent responce but best of all got to meet some really awesome people, you know who you are:) and whether they know it or not they really have helped me through a extreamly hard time in my life. I won't go into all the details but Bailey (my girlfriend) and are very close. Weve been together for almost 4 years (October 24) and so when she left for boot and i couldn't see or or even talk to her, my world was shattered. An entire piece of my life was gone and i didn't know what to do with myself. Now this was all six weeks ago. About 3 weeks ago is when I got back into this fourm. While I still feel that missing piece, i found people i can talk to and get my mind off of her not being here. It also helps that she graduates a week from friday and i'll finally be with her again. So anyways, i think this will sort of be a place where i can just lay out thoughts and stuff and hopefully get some input. For this one I've got a second project I've technicly been working on in my head for years but just started writing a week or so ago. Heres the first paragraph: My story doesn’t start with “Once upon a time,” or “Long ago, in a land unknown”. Heck, my story doesn't even start with me. It isn’t about a knight in shining armor or single hero starting from nothing building an army and overcoming impossible odds. It’s not about searching for a lost artifact that holds the power to save the world. It’s not about romance or forbidden love. It’s about a man and two of his closest friends fighting for what they believe in. It’s about facing your demons and trusting your heart. I am Tomas Aran… and this is my story. So tell me what you think, an if you'd like to see more. Welp untill next time, thanks for listening... reading... whatever:) Nick
Redeemer posted a topic in The Journal ZoneI deleted my old journal and decided to start a new one. I did this because my entire life has changed drastically recently, and I want to move on. I just want to erase the past and step forward into my new life. Along with my journal posts, I'll also link you to my "song of the day", which will always be a track that I recommend. I'm quite picky regarding my music, so I hope you like what I post. I'm also going to post little "life tips" at the bottom of each post, to share with you what I'm doing to make my life better. It'll mostly involve health, but sometimes it may include advice or inspirational quotes. We'll see. So. I was dragged up to my friend's house for dinner yesterday. She made spaghetti bolongese, but it was a strange one, with paprika and peppers through it. I really enjoyed it, but I got half of it on my shirt because we had already consumed half a bottle of this fancy French red wine before eating. It was really strong stuff, I only needed two glasses and I was gone. This friend and I are also going to Toys R Us this week. This will be my first trip to a Toys R Us. I know, that's insane. I'm 22 and I've never been in one, haha. I'm eager to buy a new plush or figurine to celebrate my first visit. I'll post a picture of whatever I buy next time I update my journal. The reason my friend is doing all this for me is because of recent happenings in my life. Someone who I've known for 2 years and been very close to has finally pushed me to cut off contact, which is really hurting for me too. But all we do is fight, and he judges the way I live and my lifestyle, my choices (which aren't always the smartest), and even the times that I call. I've done my best to keep this person happy, but I feel like I've failed, and since it hurts me so much when we fight, I've decided to tell him that we're no longer compatible personality-wise. He didn't take it very well, and hasn't been in touch since. I don't expect him to, since I apparently broke his heart. I'm just trying to do what's best for both of us. My student funding body are also being wankers. I've never had a pain-free experience with them, but I can understand why. See, I switched about two thirds way through my nursing degree to do counselling, so my funding changed. We also have a limit to our total funding, so I had to start paying some of my previous funding back in order to get funding for my new course. They settled with monthly payments of £20, which I can afford. Recently, things have been tough for me, and I've not had any money in my account for them, so as expected, they sent a letter to my mother. She called me on Saturday, telling me this, and I expected it. What I didn't expect was the £2000 bill. The letter apparently didn't specify where the number came from, just that I had to pay it off or I won't get funded for this year. Which starts in two weeks. So yeah, my dad is going to give them a call. I asked him to do it because whenever I phone them, all they do is push me to pay rather than work something out and talk to me like an adult. I can beg them for advice or some kind of reasonable monthly payment, and all I get back is "Do you want to make a payment now?". So yeah, waiting on feedback from that. But in the meantime, it's time to get my life together and focus on what's important. When/if I get student funding, I can start going to the gym again. I feel so lazy from the summer. I had to postpone my membership because I couldn't afford the monthly payments. So it's scheduled to start up again as soon as October arrives. I'm looking forward to getting out there and feeling good after a work out. Dat sauna. Kitty update! Reno is getting pretty tubby. He's really, really heavy too. When he comes over for hugs, he'll climb up onto my chest and fall asleep with his head just under my chin, and the weight! It's impressive actually, because he still runs around at the speed of light. I wouldn't say Reno's needing a diet just yet, but I'll be watching his kibble intake anyway. Nina is putting on weight too, which is a good thing. She's always been skinny, and it worried me so. But recently she's gotten a round little belly, and her fur feels softer too. I don't know what I'm doing right, but I better keep doing it! I've been playing a lot of Dragon Age 2 recently. It's actually very enjoyable. I've heard people complain about the recycled dungeons, and while I see their point, I don't think it's that bad. I play for the story and characters mostly anyway. And it has some very heart-warming references to Origins, which makes me smile. I need to draw sometime. I haven't made anything in a while. Feels bad man. I'll be doing something today, for sure! I've been saying that since Saturday, but today will be the day! I will draw something instead of losing myself to Dragon Age 2! Song of the day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WpNTSR44Lg Tip of the day: I've recently discovered that green tea is excellent for brightening up and clearing up skin. If you have acne or dry skin, try having a cup of green tea morning and night. You should notice the difference in less than a week. Green tea is also a great detox, flushing out toxins and aiding digestion. So if you're also wanting to diet, have a green tea with every meal. Try not to have too much though. You should have less than 6 cups a day, otherwise you'll be overdosing in nurtients, and that can result in complications later in life.
Furygun81 posted a topic in The Journal ZoneAlrighty, Redeemer suggested this and here I am! I guess I should begin this topic by explaining myself. I'm Aaron, and this is the story of my life. I live in the UK, and I think life's too short to be boring. I'll begin with the events today. Today I finally ordered the Star Fox 64 Player's Guide! It seemed to all be going swimmingly, until... I got an e-mail. It was refunded! WHY? Y U NO SELL ME PLAYER'S GUIDE? (thanks to DZ Composer and Psygonis for explaining this to me ) So hopefully I can find another copy and order that but things aren't looking that good. I need to find one that ships to the UK. In other news I saw Amy again and still didn't get round to asking her out (beats self up) As well as that I got chosen by Ubisoft to test out the new Assassin's Creed: Revelations Multiplayer BETA! It's a good game, the mechanics have largely remained the same with the additional of more game modes. Instead of launching first-timers into a match against the Level 50s in sets you up with people with similiar skill levels. So that's a good feature I like. As well as that there's a training mode, where you can set up a match with bots, and practice (or at least that's what I gathered, seeing as all I could do was play either online or training matches. An interesting game mode that caught my eye doesn't involve a compass indicating where your target is, but rather they are one model, and there are no lookalikes. You are still informed when you're in their line of sight but not where they are. It's in this game mode you need to have a sharp eye. Other than that it's a brilliant beta and I can't wait for the real thing!!! Also, I got pwned at Star Fox 64 online on Project64k. Not much to say there other than Landmaster fail. Okay, not much else to say other than went down to ASDA and did some shopping and went cycling down there. So that's it for today, will probably update around the end of every day. EDIT: Actually forget all that about the Player's Guide found a copy and it's ordered.
