    I think that would be Prescriptum or something. That wouldn't be very handy though, because then the acronym would be PS too. So let's assume it's something like Pre-S, even though google gives no results on that. Ah well, no need for any apologies on the long reply. I like reading them.

    And yeah, you're right again. I think too that just wanting to have nice things isn't really the same as being shallow, status-obsessed, materialistic, or hedonistic. It's when we stop valuing the things we want for what they are, and just use them to aggrandise our self-esteem that they become status object, and their values become obsolete. Nothing but a pretty number that's bigger than other people's. There's nothing wrong with wanting anything as long as the acquisition is not really a means to an end, but more like an end to itself. This is a kind of topic that I have tried to express into writing some time ago, and I still haven't finished it. If man is capable of assigning his own meaning to anything in life then that means he is capable of making and breaking the value of anything that he owns. If the meaning is shallow, the value of the object will be shallow. If the person nonetheless cares about something he has, then at least there's relevant value assigned to it.

    Personally, I think that when a person wants to play one of those well-known question games of whether I'd want to have a million dollars or a million friends, I'd pick a million dollars, because there's no way a million friends could all be as earnest as just one really good friend. Of course, with a million dollars I could do a lot of fun stuff, but that is irrelevant to this analogy. What is relevant is that a lot of people assume going for a million dollars makes them seem anti-social. I think any really social person would not opt for having a million friends, because it automatically creates distance between all of them, in the same way the proverb "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" works.

    In any way, you shouldn't at all worry that I will think any different of you if you tell me about whether you like guys or gals. Most people like to think a single word answer to such a simple question can say a million things about their personalities. People are often prejudiced and almost require everyone who is gay to act like it. It's just part of this pattern recognition in people that is actually a really useful tool, until we start dealing with other people. People like to know these shallow things so they can put others in the right category, because they have their minds set to think that "gay people are all like this," "atheists are all like this," or "furries are all like this," and that's really dangerous. I'm gay myself anyway, and I've felt discouraged by some people's reactions to it. The worst response I got was that one of my friends just looked at me in disbelief and said that it couldn't be possible, because I wasn't feminine enough. He's managing to come around it though, and he's starting to accept that just maybe not every gay person has to behave the way he thinks they should behave, and that pattern recognition doesn't apply very well to human beings.

    I am normally not the one to mould my personality whenever I want to try and be accepted by that other person as a friend. My method of dealing with them is to keep them at relative distance, and when they try to uncover something I don't feel comfortable sharing with them, I just act vaguely, and leave the question open instead of answering whatever they want to hear. If the cycle of distrust continues, and I find that the person has little to offer as a person who gives a genuine crud about my person, and not some façade, that's when I try to keep them permanently at distance. I might think they'd be great friends to game with, or hang out with at their place or mine, but I'm not going to stress myself on trying to break a concrete ceiling in a friendship if I'll hurt my face on it.

    I am certainly planning on staying in Pokécommunity in the long run. I can't guarantee adding a "forever" adverb to that sentence, but I think you know what it means. I am certainly not going to go on unannounced breaks for nearly a year at least, and if I do leave for an indefinite amount of time, I'll have the courtesy to tell others, and in any way I will promise a return then. It's very nice that there are other people around here whom I can relate to.

    Yeah, I texted him earlier, and he was out house hunting. Between that and work, he doesn't log on anymore... at least when I'm online.

    What's your major? Assuming you're in college anyway... but if you're not I don't see how you could only have 2 hours of school a day. lol

    Pretty good. I only had a couple hours of school the last couple days, so I've just been playing games and stuff all day. lol

    Though, I suppose I should be studying and doing homework too. lol

    and i agree, it is hard, but in order to fill up one whole space, you need either a background or a super large pic, which can be hard to find :/
