Back In The Saddle

It's been so long since I last visited PC, such a long time... I've decided to give the place another shot. Though it has only almost been a year, a lot of stuff has changed in my life.

All of my old PC friends (give or take a few) disappeared or phased out of existence. The only friends from PC I kept Was Travis and Abe. I goofed around with forum software, made a decent community for about 3 months until that died, Started a game server that was fun for the time until I got sick and tired of not enjoying the game. I got addicted to 1 sandbox game after the other.

I eventually joined a great minecraft server where I met some of the best online friends ever. Eventually, I became an admin on the server and loved it. It is still tough keeping up with all of the server software and plugin updates.

I Had to deal with depression problems with friends which in turn made me depressed for awhile. I ended up getting a sleep disorder for awhile, making me pass out after school, and making me wake up perfectly fine at midnight like it was day time. Started exploring more pathways, Tried some drugs, had the biggest catastrophe with one of my oldest friends ever that still to this day I have nightmares about.

I ended up being in the most fun class ever, all of my current semester classes are computer or technology based, having fun almost every day coding with current classmates which have become more or less really great friends. I signed up and got accepted to college for either computer systems or computer engineering. (kinda bad, but I forgot which one I eventually chose)

I got fed up with my endlessly breaking laptop and having to use my father's macbook and assembled an awesome gaming PC.

My grandpa passed away from a stroke and I never got to see him in the hospital once while he was sickly and dying. I got over the death of my grandfather fairly quickly , and I never felt any sadness at the funeral. I have no reason why I never shed a tear at the time but looking back at it, I miss him now.

I started recording let's plays for my youtube with my current friends and lately haven't bothered to edit or upload them.

A couple weeks ago I started getting driving lessons and have never felt nervousness of that magnitude before. After ever driving lesson, I go home and pass out only to end up awake at early hours which I have nothing to do but type like I am doing now.

You know what the funniest thing about depression is? It takes away all that you used to find fun and makes you end up feeling bad all the time and sleeping all your time away. The worst thing about it is that it comes back at random ready to strike, and each time is harder than the last.

I have decided to come back to this forum because I remember at the time (around 2008) I made some really kick ass friends here that I kinda miss now a days and I want to regain contact with them.

I've had quite the bit of challenges and scuffles a long the way, but here I am roughly 1 year later, just 1 month shy of being here for about 3 years, still kicking it, ready to apply my new-found abilities and get back into the activity I once loved called ROM Hacking.

To all the people I've had beef with in the past, I am sorry for being an immature douche I once was and I hope we can still do what we used to do.

Also to anybody in general, I hope we can talk, meet new people in general, and grow up into happy human beings. Thanks for reading this guys.

    I hope so to, I remember having so much fun on here back in the day. This time I think I will get more technical with romhacking. All I used to do was tile insert, so now I think I will script and possibly try some asm coding.
