I know the feeling. I often get the feeling I'm an old lady. Especially now that I finally got myself a full-time job, the hours are definitely aging me rather quickly. I find myself going to bed by 9:30 most nights! I don't know how I used to get up so early to go to school and then stay up until all hours of the night. But really, 24 already? It's so crazy thinking that I joined this place eight years ago and that I was only 15 at the time! Seems like yesterday, doesn't it?
I don't mind coming here to reply to VMs when I get a chance to hop online. MSN would be a good option as well... but judging by the time stamps on all of your messages to me, I somehow don't think I'll ever catch you online! XD I'm usually only around at this time (5:30-ish) for a couple of hours. It's too bad about the social networking, as that would have been the easiest method (I'm assuming that to mean no Facebook/Twitter), but PC certainly works for me.
So anyway, how are things going for you? Good, I hope :)
No kidding about our age! I can't believe it myself. 24, that's dangerously close to being halfway through your 20s. In some ways I feel like I'm 100, but in others, it's shocking.
Hmm....for contact, I'm sure it inconveniences you to hop on PC just for VMs when you're no longer an active member, so MSN is an option for me. I'm embarrassingly old-fashioned when it comes to social networking (I have a lot of people IRL that would make my life inconvenient if they tracked me down in cyberspace <_<), but if there's something that's most convenient for you, I'll be as flexible as is necessary :)
You're welcome! I hope you had a good birthday. Crazy to think how old we're getting to be though, isn't it? The last time we properly spoke we were only 18 and not even done with high school yet! (Though I'm sure that probably felt old to us at the time!)
We should definitely find a way to get in contact more often. What works for you as a method of contact?
I stumbled back on PC the other day, and I noticed that it was your birthday today. So I wanted to wish you a happy one! Sorry that I haven't gotten in touch with you since May or whenever it was last. It'd be nice to catch up sometime, I think. I hope everything is well with you! Take care! :)
Oh wow, it's so wonderful to hear from you. I'm so glad to hear about your engagement (and to a PC member, no less!) and that you made it through college okay. Those worrisome issues like work and family will work themselves out in time :D
Oddly, in spite of my parents' paranoia they never really screened my mail, and would have probably forwarded something from you to me at college without question XD When I think about it, I probably wouldn't have been so cold as to not reply to a letter sent from you, so maybe this would have all resolved much more quickly if that'd happened XP Who knows, though. It's just nice to suddenly be among everyone again.
I'd be really happy to keep in touch with you, and I'll be sure you send you an email later! I also might be drafting a blog post to get newer members up to speed on who I am that will include a pic of the bookmark you made for me in the next few days, so I'll link to it if I end up making it!
Matt told me that you were back so I thought I'd come and say hi. :) I always wondered what had happened to you all those years ago. I finally got through your wall of text and you definitely had quite a story to tell. I wish I could have helped you through your troubles but I understand why you wanted to get away from everything. Like you, I graduated last year and I'm still looking for full time employment. XD
Every so often I'd re-read the letter you sent me and ask myself if I should send you a letter to ask if you were okay, but then I didn't know if you'd get in trouble so I always decided against it.
I don't come on here anymore and I never have a chance to come on MSN, but I would love to keep in touch with you. So much has changed since we last spoke! If you want to email me, my email is [email protected].
