Thread: Am I back?

  1. #1

    Default Am I back?

    I'm undecided on this.

    On the one hand, I've pretty much completely isolated myself in real life. I have only around 5 people on my MSN list left, one of whom has moved to California, one that I met on a plane back from Europe, a guy from Toronto who hasn't logged in for a while, one guy I'm waiting for an update on a video he's supposed to post that I'm in before I delete him, and one person I know in real life that I haven't seen in a couple months.

    Between work and school, I don't really have any free time the last couple of months. Most weekdays I'm up by 7:30, home at 22:30, with an hour or half hour break around 15:00 where I stop by my house and grab a quick dinner of leftovers. Weekends I usually start work at 12:00-15:00 and finish at 21:00-23:00. So, I really don't have the time to hang out with people. My "free time" is usually after midnight on weekends, or I'll get a random hour or two on a weekday.

    What does this have to do with anything? Well, I've been getting into old habits that I had when I was younger and didn't talk to anyone. It's almost like I forget how to be around people. I need to do something in my free time to socialise, but I really don't have the time to go hang out with anyone in real life. I figured a forum and/or chat would be the best alternative.

    On the other hand, I wonder if I'm just killing time. I do use sites like this to keep myself from doing homework. In fact, I can think of three projects that I'm supposed to be doing right now worth 10-15% of my final mark in each course. Is that really a bad thing? I'll probably get it done last minute, like I always do. I'll probably get low-to-mid 90's, like I always do. I could probably do better if I didn't waste my time on stuff like this.

    I also have issues with the colours. Some of them are just too bright. Not bright as in it makes them girly or anything, but that really light tan coloured one is not only difficult to read, but is not aesthetically pleasing. I don't see how that colour got chosen. It's such a bland colour, and it just looks ugly. I think basic colours work better, like red, blue, yellow, and green. The tannish yellow is too off from that and looks weird.

    I'm just being petty, but for some reason that really annoys me. I'm kind of going off on a tangent here that can be summarised in a simple way; things have changed. there are a lot of new people here, as welll as a lot of technical changes, and I'm wondering if I would be better off finding a new community to chill in and make a fresh start. I get along great with people, at first. As long as I get out before I get too involved, things seem to work out fine.

    As for what I did in my free time... a lot. If you have any questions, that's what the text boxes at the bottom are for. I'm currently moderated, so don't expect an answer right away. I'll probably wait for a few question to crop up before I post, so as to not cause anyone too much trouble having to approve posts, and also keep from having like 5 answers in a row done at the same time, even if they were written 20 minutes apart.

    Well Zephy, it's good to see you around again Wherever you end up, I hope you find a place where you're happy and where you find the kind of social interaction you need. So you're working a night job, eh? Yeah, that'll eat up your life like nothing else :/ I work from 5 in the evening to 2 in the morning, or 17:00-2:00 for you 24-hour folks , and between a full day of school and a full night of work there isn't much time for friends.

    Well, for what its worth, I wouldn't mind seeing you around once again as I generally enjoyed reading your posts (the ones that didn't cross the line, anyway ^^), and I'm sure that I'm not the only one here that would welcome you back. Not to say that everybody would like to see you back, but whatever. In some sense, coming back here might be a fresh start since we have had so many new members since your moderation started.

    Anyway, I'm rambling on. Welcome back if you decide to stay, farewell if you decide to go elsewhere.

    Join the club, get the t-shirt. How many of us can really say that we don't use internet forums as a means of procrastinating. I've come to the conclusion that if I weren't procrastinating here, I'd be doing it through some other activity which I enjoy less.

    Join the dark [skin] side. I've hated the default blue theme since the upgrade. I think the colors blend together too much and it's a pain to read.

    I'm currently using the "New Black" skin. I prefer the color choices on the "Dark Skin", but it's notoriously buggy, whereas "New Black" seems to be fine for everything other than profiles.

    The background colours haven't changed. It's people's names. They are just. so. ugly. ARGH!!! I actually hate that tan-y colour. Even if I was able to get that rank, I'd purposely avoid it because I hate the colour. Also, your name is pink. Only Talula can have a pink name. Anyone else with it looks weird. >_>

    The yellow color is actually supposed to be more of a gold-like yellow.

    My label and Talula's are "plum", with the idea being that it's a lighter shade of purple. I'm not wild about "plum" either, but, meh, it's not a big deal to me.

    Well... tell me how to fix my colours. It's gosh awful seeing the ugly tan and pink colours.

    Well, do what'cha want Zeph. I don't personally care if you come back... you don't seem quite the same as before. I'm willing to give you a second chance, maybe. *Shrugs*

    Do what you want... we could always use another person besides myself and usually Shuk to squash the deekerphiles that seem to be migrating here recently.

    I might seem to have changed, but you certainly haven't. >_>

    Probably won't be saying anything to creepy people, unless they start infringing on a person's personal space, at which point i'll probably just report them. I'm moderated, so the post would be delat with before mine was shown, anyway.

    Well I am happy to see you back; and my username color is unchanged, which is perfectly fine by me; I like it this way.

    I am guessing you do too.

    Obsessive-compulsive people can cross lines and even when they know they are doing so they can't help themselves easily. I am one, I know; and I get also the tendency to ramble, but it makes me happy in a way (and in a way it makes me gag) to see how I must come across sometimes; hail brother!
