    Yeah, my friends who've been watching it are always raving about how good it is. And I hear that it's getting renewed for a second season. Looks like I'm gonna have to start watching.
    Link's Awakening is one of the more underrated games in the franchise. Still, I think it was the second video game I played (after Pokémon Yellow) so it holds a special place in my heart. And the main theme is so hauntingly beautiful.

    Does it ever upset you that it's possible that the best years of our lives are already behind us?
    Wow, that sounded really depressing. :(

    Neither do I. :\
    But I have thought about those kinds of things before. Like, do we all see the same colors? I mean, we all call the sky blue but what if the "blue" that I see is actually your "red". Sensory input is so subjective that we could be living in completely different universes (at least, we perceive them differently) but never know it because we just assume everybody else experiences things the same way.

    Aw, you should really live in a dorm. It's so much fun. The freedom that you gain from going off to college is great and all but the real fun part, the part that I love, is living with an awesome group of guys. You have no idea how sad I was when I had to leave (I was tearing up, that's how sad). Honestly, I was more sad about leaving college to go back home than I was leaving home for college. Anyway, I think you'll have a blast either way.

    ALSO: Please let me know if you want to do a movie transfer so I can plug my computer into the Ethernet. I moved all of the movies that I mentioned in that one VM into the folder so you can start with those if you like.

    Those were the best days, I'd have to say even if I didn't know what to say.

    I'm excited! I think I have a few ideas for yours buuuut not really sure where to go with it quite yet. I've got some time though :D

    Awesome! Avatar keeps getting better the more you get into the show. For example, you haven't met Toph yet. And, of course, after you finish the first three seasons there's always Korra! I need to start watching that too but maybe I'll just wait for you. :)

    That screenshot is from Link's Awakening. It's, arguably, my favorite Legend of Zelda game and a strong contender for my favorite video game in general. But that's another story...

I've basically been as gone as you have, although I do come in from time to time to check up on things. Don't hold silly things like not being here against yourself, especially when I've been doing it too... you really haven't let me down at all, ever. I understand it when you need some time away from this sort of stuff and get things sorted out in your life, which is far more important than being online. :(

I meant to respond to this a while back and it's been sitting in my Reminders list for a long time but I only got around to it today after seeing some motivational post on 4chan about how "the time is now" and all that kind of stuff. I feel like I take your friendship for granted. I just assume you'll be there when I need you but I'm not there when you need me. I mean, I've been gone for four and a half months. That's a really long time. True, I had a lot of **** going on that I needed to take care of. But it kills me that you probably had even more problems, it being your senior year and all, and I wasn't even here. I'm really ashamed of that. And that's why when you say "it's really important for me to be able to believe in someone" I feel a real, tangible pain in my chest. I feel like I've let you down. Part of me tells me that I haven't because if I had, you would have left me long ago. But the other part of me just can't get past my selfish behavior.

    I came back here to respond to your messages and I envisioned it would be a happy thing. But I guess, in coming back, I realized that I don't have much to be happy about here. So with the motivation that that stupid post gave me, I'm going to make a promise. I promise that I'm going to be a good friend from here on out. I keep telling myself, "tomorrow's the day that I'll change everything and become the person that I want to be". But I've realized that tomorrow's not a good day for that. Today is. It has to be today. That's why I'm here. And I'm going to do whatever it takes to make it up to you. I'll check PC every day. I'll start using my MSN. I'll make an account on Smogon so we can talk there. Hell, I'll even fly out to meet you in person and shake your hand if that's what it takes. I know it sounds cliché but I really am determined to make this right, even if you think it already is. The past is the past and from now on I'm going to be the person I should have been. Because you deserve that guy.

    ALSO: Congrats on four years. Here's to four more good ones. :)

We were both the biggest grammar Nazis in the world (although I've definitely eased up on that). "Me either"... XD

    I found that log of my favorite quotes from our conversation, btw. Remind me to send that to you sometime... has your PM box expanded? I might try to PM it to you in a few minutes. Or maybe I'll just VM it. Or maybe I'll blog it. I dunno. You were the original inspiration for that first blog that I posted - the one with me thanking everyone for their impact on me. Wahey! You've been a bigger inspiration to me than you have ever thought, probably. You kept me here, you kept me sane, you kept me enjoying life. You told me a secret, once, and I swore I'd keep it. Maybe it's just me, but I still sort of view that secret as the means that glued us together. You've been with me for all this time, and I really miss the days that we used to spend entire days hanging out and just chatting over whatever. We talk sometimes, but damn I miss the old days.

    This page has had 41,041 visits... Reminds me of rep and when we sort of had an unannounced competition to get more posts and page visits than the other, and I sort of pulled away as soon as I got my mods. And I'm really not sure why I ever got mods instead of you, especially since you were MUCH more qualified and everything. You were an excellent mod, imo. But really, more than that... you've been an excellent friend, and still one I'd trust with anything and everything. I really just want to quote from one of those "thanks for everything" blogs that I had posted:

    Quote:
    I've been thinking about it, and I realized that it's really important for me to be able to believe in someone or something, and trust that they are going to be there whether I'm down or up or drunk or dead, that I will get an honest and from-the-heart response from them, that they'll catch me if I fall. And this one goes to perhaps my best friend that I've ever had whether in real life or internet, colcolstyles. There's no one more important for me to put in this list, honestly. I hope that I've been able to be there like you have for me, pal. You and your crazy statistics and lists and comic-searching skills. Stay awesome forever, bro.
    And also this:

    Quote:
    It's really no secret that colcolstyles is probably the best friend I have on PC, if not one of the best ones I've ever had in real life, too. I dunno what it is, but it's like we're two sides of the same coin - we're the same, but we're the opposite at the same time. You're a science and math man, and I'm an English doof. You're calculating, logical, consistent, and perceptive, where I've got my head in the clouds, constantly being distracted by anything and everything, letting the wind take me where it blows. You've got those things you never change or hardly do (your avatars, signatures, "Yours truly", etc) while I'm stupidly sporadic and constantly change everything I can all the time. But I guess opposites attract, right?
    I really hope we get to catch up sometime. See you later!
    The sad thing is that you have told me how much I mean to you before. But what's even more sad is that I don't think I've ever reciprocated.
