Your gratitude is most admirable, your majesty. If thou would wish, you could be my royal Neighbor over to the North of my humble kingdom.

And new rules for my thread: Whenever Yonkey posts in here, it is mandatory that no suffer whatsoever be used. And must also give one spoiler per month... XD Anyone else can use Suffer though! XD

Thank Rosella! Does it cost money to do? BTW: I'm going to bag groceries for about four hours or so. I leave at 2:30 and end at 6:30. (I'm bad at math...) Also, I'm getting new shoes, as I was in the rain picking up carts for 45 minutes yesterday, and my shoes are screwed!

EDIT: I'm getting an award at my school! I haven't been told what, but we received a letter in the mail claiming that I'm getting an award... I honestly think they have the wrong person! Unless the award is Housemaster's Best Friend award or Teacher's Pet award!

Ooh! I've never gotten any of those kinds of awards. XD I'm not sure if it's the same where you live, but where I am, the invitations by mail are REALLY exclusive, and only for UBER awards.

Thanks so much! The awards ceremony is on tuesday of the incoming week. (The 13th of June) I do not know what kind of award it is, but speculation points towards the Core Values Award, which is given to (I think) the student that best shows the core values. The core values in my school are Learning, Responsibility, and Respect. I just hope it's a good award! It could also be Perfect Attendance, which is unlikely as I was absent a few times. It may be though. I don't know! Also, I'm reserving myself a DS Lite later today! And Deloria, you asked me on IM lasty night about my article for my site, it's now up on the blog if you wish to see it. It's called Political Rant. I put a lot into it. And I know that political issues are not allowed on these forums, so discussion of my blog entry should be brought to my site, where I will allow it to be disscussed on the forum. (I thini they're not allowed because of flame wars, right? People having different political views and what not...)

Yep.  When there are topics like politics, religion, and other controversial issues, there is no "right" or "wrong" one, yet they always seem to escalate into flame wars and offensive behaviour with someone always wanting to be right. ::) So, we prevent this by banning those kinds of conversational topics altogether. 8)

Post by: dark-daventry on June 13, 2006, 10:57:22 AM
Sorry for double posting, but I had to... I was visiting LS today, and noticed some very strange things... I'm going to be in a program with a modified group of rules than that of the school. I was in a language arts class there, and some kid had a tick in his hair. It came down on the table, and a kid stomped on it. It didn't kill it, ande so it got knocked to the ground where a kid took out a lighter from his pocket and enflamed it on the floor. Very strange. The kids were allowed to do that apparently. Then, in the same class, we for some reason started talking about condoms, and how there are female ones now too. They were saying that the ones the school gives out broke quickly... *Shudders* Believe me, if you ever get transfered to LSRHS, DON'T get into the Central Program. (LSRHS stands for Lincoln-Sudbury Regional Highschool) It's so strange, believe me! I then went down to some other program, something called the reach, and it was people learning things that I had done in kindergarden. (They had pics of numbers and stuff like that.) The only reason I was there was because I have trouble in math, so I will go there for math. It's strange, really!

That's all! I'll go and post the happenings of my awards ceremony later.

Post by: dark-daventry on June 20, 2006, 06:12:42 PM
I'm back in da house y'all! Do what you wish with those posts, although I was debating whether to even post such a thing earlier. My awards ceremony was nice. I was presented with
the Jean Alley book for creative writing.
My teacher has more than once praised my ability. And yonkey, I'm so unused to you with a new avatar! XD I think it'll take some getting used to! I must inform you that it is increasingly likely that you will see less and less of me in the coming days/weeks/months because of current events. None are negative, but are fairly important. I am speaking this friday at the 8trh grade moving on ceremony, I am going to camp for six weeks (A day camp, so I will return here during the summer a little), taking a few teachers out to lunch to thank them for the outstanding help they've given me in sorting out my life. (The three of them are extremely accepting of me, despite rumors, and other such things. They were with me when I first entered the doors.) I wish the silver lining the best of luck, and remeber this: May the fans be with you! XD I will make every single effort in my super-human power to come to the huge event. I will try my best. Another reason why you may see so much less of me, is that now I have a renewed addiction to the Sims 2, which is very, very uncommon! XB

Dark-Daventry wishes you all the best of luck!

(And please note I may be on the forums more frequently as well. I was only stating what may occur, not what definetely will. Just letting you all know!)

Post by: dark-daventry on June 28, 2006, 04:05:17 PM
Ahem! I have returned (For an hour! XD). My moving on speech was well accepted. The teacher, a wellness teacher, was crying with joy when she came up. She was so happy and moved by my performance. My "diploma" has written in it, I quote "For his love of the written word, especially Science-Fiction, and his enthusiasm in Science Crime Busters". My teachers claim to miss me so much. I also got a graduation present when I returned home, which I cannot discuss.
It was tsl! XD
Actually, it was money. My birthday is in the next few weeks, which I have requested, against my own statements and beliefs, an Xbox. I just thought it would be nice to own one, and try Halo. Do not believe that I have been moved to the dark side of Gaming, because I am still an active believer in Nintendo's legacy and teachings! I don't care if sony or M.Soft bashes them, because they still live on through time. No one can deny that they did revitalize Video Games with the NES and SNES. It is undeniable. (In my opinion.) In other, months old news, I moved from cameo pants to Jeans. I used to hate jeans. Now I seem to have an addiction to them. And my newfound addiction to the sims seems to hold true. (Especially when I know not so exclusive details on the next EP and SP! Go me! If you want to know such information, just ask me, because it was already revealed. Believe me, the only inside contact I have anywhere is bandai, and I haven't heard from him in months. Although I do have some nice and very exclusive info on Digimon's future, that no one on this entire forum knows. I hope. And I have been sworn to secracy. So I shall uphold my promise.)

Peace out!  :thumbsup:

Party in the house! I *could* share my digimon info, but I think it best if it remains secret for the moment. Please note that I received an e-mail telling me of secret plans quite recently. I'm sorry about this, but I have been sworn to the most strictest decree of secrecy and security on TSL. *"accidentally" hits send to all* You will have to go to my imaginary frienhd Bob's house for the game. He's giving pirated versions right now... Also, you may see me gone for another leave of absence. I will do my best to show up at the big event... That is, if I don't have work or camp... If not work, then probably camp, if not camp, then probably work. I may not show for certain reasons... Bye...

Anyway... There is some news on my front now... If you wish to hear it...
I'm getting a raise at work!   ;D
Also, I am doing my best to attend the big event, but it depends, because I could very possibly have work that day. (unless it's a weekday. In which case I will be at camp until about five or so. It depends on my schedule...) I apologize for my absences, but there will be more coming, I can tell you that... I try to get back on as much as I can, but it's hard... Luckily I don't have work until 2 PM today! Unfortunately, I'm going out in a few minutes probably... Anyway, see yah... And why would I want to change my nick name to Zeus? What is the point of that? And last time I was in there last year, I couldn't do a thing with it... I had no idea how to post a message or change my nick or anything. Mainly because I've never even used chatrooms and what not. I use IM, but that's about it, besides forums... And e-mail...

okay... Sure... Thank you for clearing that up for me Yonkey! I believe I may have work that day. Unfortunately, I do not yet know my hours, nor will I until the day before. T's sad, but it is how the world works, is it not?

Does anyone even care that I'm getting a raise?  :'( XD

I'm getting raised 25 cents! XB Go me!  ;D

Also, I will do my utmost best to appear as a "guest of honor" at the event. (Will you have the huge, sparkly red carpet emblazoned with "Dark-Daventry in the house"? XD) Farewell to thee, humble Kingdom of TSL. I shall return on the morrow (eventually... Not tomorrow, though, I bet...) and wisheth you all well. And what happened to my happy birthday? No one said happy b-day to me...  :'( I don't know what happened to the Haven b-day thread, so that may be why, but, um, yeah.... Bye...  :P

What do you mean? I get paid 7.50 per hour now! I was previously 7.25 per hour. It's quite nice... How is everyone doing? I'm at my very last day of camp! Six weeks, gone... And that means I return to working on fridays... *moans* Oh well. Are there any upcoming events which may/may not interest me? Also, I realize that this could be quite off topic for my thread, but a show I really like is in danger. The show itself went off the air ages ago, but it's dvd sales are declining, and the next set may not happen. I was told to tell 1,000 people about the show entitled Gargoyles. It's a very well made show. Great storyline and everything. If you see it anywhere, look at the storyline description, and then purchase it. The more people buying it the better. And if this particular discussion is not allowed on the forum, then I shall remove pronto.

Enjoy!

Post by: dark-daventry on August 17, 2006, 10:25:51 AM
Before, I believe. Either way, it wouldn't be allowed, would it? And on a more personal note, some majorly distressing news has arrisen in my family that I cannot discuss. I will only say that I am now locked inside the house for god knows how long. (The news does not involve me. It involves my older brother.) My sister just told me I couldn't go outside because if our mom calls, my sister wants to know where I am. The funny thing is, I went out about maybe more than an hour ago, and so did she. And she let me. Very weird. And when I mean just told me, I mean literally, like ten minutes ago she told me. I'm a bit upset now. So I guess I'll be on the forum a bit today to help pass the time... I feel like I've been quarentined. (I have no idea how to spell that, and I'm just too lazy to use the forum's spell-check.)

Good point!  ;D I can't believe I spelled it right...  :o :o :o :o *bows to his majesty, the god of spelling* Wow... On another bright side, I don't go back to school until september, and seeing as I'm out of camp for the summer, and I only work fridays saturdays and sundays, I have quite a lot of freetime for now. Also, have any of you heard of "crocs"? I just got two mock up brands of them. One by a company called Airwalk, which I believe made the same exact shoe except with a very slightly different design. Then I got L.L. Bean's version of them in the mail. LL Bean makes a very different version. But in a good way. To save you from my possibly boring comparison between the two, I shall make a spoiler tag, and then I shall make a thread dedicated to them in the off topic section...

The LL Bean version definetely has a better feel. Sturdier than the Airwalks. They have much better grips. My sources inform me that the LL beans do not slip on water. I have not tried it myself. The airwalks do. I tried. Luckily I balanced myself before I hit the ground! A downside the LL Beans is that the strap on the back comes off, and that is the only way to turn the shoes into slippers. The airwalks as well as the crocs just slide smoothely and do not come off. I would have to conclude that in personal opinion the LL Bean pair is better.

Anyway, I just got wind that my parents are returning from their destination now. They are returning home earlier than they had in the past. Anyway, bye...

Post by: dark-daventry on September 10, 2006, 04:59:46 PM
I feel it neccesary that I apologize for the events that had happened earlier on in the year regarding my application. I do realize that maybe this shouldn't even be posted, but I wish to apologize very much for the events I had caused. My intentions were meant only to get on the team, not to raise anyone's hopes or anything of that sort.  The events that followed my application were entirely my fault, if not the entire thing. I acknowledge that I had made a terrible mistake. The mistake was not applying for the team, but it was that I allowed someone else to talk me out of it. I believe that she had meant no such thing to happen, and was only expressing her own opinions regarding my application, which I admire her for doing so. This post is only my apology, which I realize is late, very late, actually, but I suppose better late than never! And so I apologize especially to Say for getting her hopes up on me, I do hope that I will be forgiven for what I did. And for those that do not know of this event, I personally believe that it remains that way. I have made many mistakes in my life, some that I regret more than others, some that I wish I had never done. But we are all human (I hope!) and mistakes are part of our nature. There is no human alive that has never made a mistake, because then they wouldn't be human. Mistakes can be very small, and also very big. The one I made is one that I regret deeply and wished that I never did. I had hurt people, and I did not wish for that to happen. Do what you wish with this post, but I just wanted to express my deepest apologies. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

edit: Thanks for moving it to the right place!

Post by: dark-daventry on September 10, 2006, 05:26:29 PM
Thanks Yonkey! I owe you one! Also, on the real life front, the issues I think are getting resolved little by little, but Iam not positive. (My parents don't tell me too much of what is going on.) Also, I have decided to disclose the information, but with a request that it is not spread from beyond this thread, and that it not spread to too many people. To help protect the information, I shall put it into spoiler tags, but I do want to know if there is any other way to help minimize the information flow...

Well, here it goes... My family has had a history of cancer, and so now my older brother might have it. I've already lost an uncle I've never met for the sole reason of cancer. He died of some form of cancer (can't remember the specific type) before I was even born. He died before my parents met! I think he was in his twenties... My other uncle had it, and survived it, my cousin now has it, and my older brother may have it, although that possibility is decreasing now. It might be a virus, the doctors are not entirely sure. Anyway, I do not want this information to spread too much.

That's about it...

And you know, I think you might be right anyway yonkey! Why else would I have made that mistake...? It might have been fate! Who knows! I'm just happy I'm part of such an accepting community! No matter what happens, I know I can rely on this community, whether good or bad. I thank you very much for being so nice! Even after what I did I am still well accepted here among many. (I think) But I am glad I finally apologized! I have now had a weight lifted from my shoulders. Now I have another weight, and that one is called High School! I have begun high school! I'M A FRESHMAN! The school I attend now is a maze that you cannot escape! It was built massively for a reason. The population of the two towns it accepts has been bigger, and so a bigger school was needed for it. I have had three days of high school, one of them an orientation. See yah!

Post by: dark-daventry on September 10, 2006, 06:12:59 PM
Thank you! I think I may just stick around for another two to three years on this forum, depending on how accepting this community will be! But I do know this: If the mods and everyother team member keep up the good work on this forum, I can assure you that a big community is a definete. I swear I have never seen such an accepting community ever. On other forums I feel like a complete stranger, and on some the members actually talk bad about other members or puit them down. And on one, that I now do not visit anymore, I was defending someone that everyone else thought was a fraud. I was defending him because to me he seemed legit, and hmade predictions that eventually came true. He made claims that he worked for a company and had inside information on the next season of a show that I had liked (and still do!) Everyone said there was no more seasons, but hev said otherwise, and just recently a new season was announced. Before it was announced, I defended him, saying that even if he is a fraud, he did something that I can not thank him enough for. He gave me hope. Hope that a new season was on the horizon. Even if he was a fake, he had given me hope that the show would go on. I am happy that he did that. They should have been happy as well, because they at least got hope. Eventually, however, I was driven out of the forums by someone called DemonSlayer. I never returned. (Well, I did once... but only to promote someone... That I disliked very much. Don't ask me why I did, but I did. I don't even know!)

Thanks!  <3 I am planning to stay for a while, so I hope to have fun here! Even if I'm not part of the team, I know I've made a connection here, and will never forget it! You guys are so nice! Much more than other forums! Won't you join mine? (Don't worry, it only has nine members! XD don't feel pressured!) I do believe that this game has immense potential, and that the team is dedicated. When people come on here badmouthing you, I know in my heart that you are worthy of your cause, much more than other fan games. This game was built on the foundation of the fans, and the fans alone, and it will not stop because a few people bad-mouth it. Besides, I got to experience first hand how passionate the team really is, and I must admit, it's amazing! So whenever people say bad things about you guys, I know it's not true. And the VU incident brought the fans together, and it's probably what makes you guys so special! No other fan community has banded together to overcome a huge company like VU and actually suceded. I feel very special to have been here for that time, and I know that everyone else is too. This game has endured so much, and I know it will never stop because of what a few punks say.
Title: Re: Dark-Daventry's Thread
Post by: Yonkey on September 11, 2006, 09:41:34 PM
Yeah, to me the VU challenge wasn't really a challenge at all.  Basically, all we had to do was show our passion.  So, I made sure our fans did that by not biasing them in any way, and ensured our team did that as well by helping them focus on the task.  I couldn't predict what would happen, but I knew that if we showed our passion, VU would show their compassion. 8)

Ah, the VU talk... one of the many "secrecy" of the "empire" huh?
Hahaha. Truth to be told, unlike Neil-o over there... It was unexpected for me, because why would VU would hold back for so long if they were really interested in protecting their IP and whatnot? Either way, unexpected after so many years, everyone was pretty much upset about it. I still remember talking to Cesar about it and reading member's comment sort of like: "Alright, guys... what now?" Overall, it was one of the worst moments for TSL team, which truly became much better with time.

Luckily enough, Catherine and Matt came along, they shaped up a nice group and did great things. I personally couldn't feel more blissfully happy to have people that actually care for real, no pretending involved, no lies, just TRUTHFUL effort and support. Not just myself, but I do know that everyone else who really support us will be always thankful to them! <3

Oh, I must add that, Neil's comment were more of a personal feeling rather than just a general overview (or a strategy). Just need to clarify that because some around here do get offended, apparently, as well as they seemed to be ticked off by the fact I don't care about their impressive free time.

Moving on with stuff that are actually interesting :D

Let's talk about your best and worst most recent moments!! :P
I'll go first :D


Worst moment (same 1st week I got to Portland): Getting lost in town! There isn't a worst feeling in the world than knowing absolutely nothing about where you are and where you are supposed to be going in a foreign place, with weird people around you in a hot day. Seriously annoying.

Best moment! (yesterday!): Mah engagement ring arrived! It is so beautiful! :D I should post some photos of it :)

Oh don't worry, just being here and being yourself speaks louder than anything else, and I did mention it before, real fans come around and just stick around for the right reasons and being simply honest. But on the other hand I'm beyond disappointed with some facts I have seen happen as well as disappointed with some people because of it (not you dark!).

I wonder what the problem is with some people that just stick around to mess and cause nothing but trouble, and just to clarify, by trouble I mean illegal activities, harassing forum members and violating legal documents and being completely disrespectful in one too many ways pretending no one would know or care, or at the very least they would be caught up. And as shocking as it is, yes, "fans" have done this, people I would never even expected to and I kinda cared deeply, It is obvious it was just one way because they never truly cared. Trouble doesn't mean me being here or being there for whoever who needs me, because if you ask me a fan is much more important to me than anything else, which is my job and I have done ever since 2003 otherwise this community wouldn't even be a reality, and not even NEIL would be around.

Sorry for the rant, but I felt like explaining this to you so you don't take it personally :) I don't sugar coat anything that is not allowed in this team neither in this community, neither I particularly play any games, what you see is what you get, as well with this team. So, I'm happy for knowing only very few seem that absurd.

Moving on, Dark I totally agree with what you just said, it was kind of sweet to see that many gather up and support us. It shows the adventure world is far beyond from being dead. And it is SO refreshing that the majority of you seem to be REAL and just with no DRAMA or pointless mind games that border into Illegal and just flat out useless. THANK YOU for that, THAT IS the real TSL community. <3

Oh and for the record, I'm glad you feel better :)


Luckily enough, Catherine and Matt came along, they shaped up a nice group and did great things.

I felt truly awful about what I did, and am happy I had apologised, and am ready for life's challenges. (I hope... Hopefully nothing too sudden!

Post by: Yonkey on September 12, 2006, 05:41:46 PM
Definitely. :)  To go back to the VU thing, I remember lurking at a lot of sites that talked about us, and seeing many people claim that this entire project was a mistake.  Obviously, I never listened to them then or now, nor did I react to their foolishness either, because standing up for "pride & prejudice" was probably the last thing on my mind at the time. ;P

When I was about to make the announcement public, I seriously didn't know what would happen.  I was expecting it to be quite 50/50 because there was no cut and dry answer.  However, I figured the reason they told us to C&D was because they learned about us on the wrong pretenses.  To this day I don't the exact reason why they sent it, but I think they realized that they made a huge mistake too.  And you'll notice that now they're trying to fix it as well. XD

Best and Worst Moment for me actually occured within 24 hours of each other.  I won't bore you guys with the details, but I went from my lowest low to my highest high and also learned what's truly important in life. :)

I realize this may get deleted, but shall post anyway. This is addressed to Neil. I wanted to thank you for restoring me to my former glory, and I look forward to your return! (as long as you don't repeat this...) Also, I feel I must apologize for some of my actions. During this incident, I admit that I had slightly different feelings towards Neil, and as time progressed, I started to dislike neil a bit. No offense to you. The post made in my fan fic thread was a bit upsetting, although I realize that you had not known of my situation, so I forgive you. Also, I apologize to some for being kept up-tight about the situation. But as I stated in Neil's thread, it takes more than a posistion change to knock me out! I'm a loyal member of the forum, and will be for years to come! VIVA LA TSL! XD

Post by: Yonkey on September 15, 2006, 08:13:46 AM
That's good to hear DD.  I was using the test as a means of proving something to others, and to yourself, but I see that don't need to do that anymore.  It was all just one big misunderstanding. 

But since you did take the test truthfully, I'll show you what I learned from all this.  I've learned that being "good" or "bad" is not something one can prove to people.  Each of us inherit both and make decisions based on what we think is "best".  My definition of best is context-sensitive, and directly relates to the solution of a problem.  However, the solution to a problem is based on success/failure. 

The logical dilemma is that in order for me to succeed in something, something else must lose.  That's why I don't believe in conventional methods of solving a problem, because I don't want them to lose either, I want them to learn.  Then the issue becomes with want.  To want people to learn is to force them to, which is again something that I don't do.  But, since the consequence of this is a downward spiral, which is something I disagree with, I never give up hope that one day they will learn.  Regardless of anything else.

I'm not the sort of person that will come back and say "I told you so", which is why I give people a chance to own up to the truth to begin with and avoid all this hassle, particularly once they hit rock bottom and beg me for their help after it's too late.

The thing to keep in mind is that it's never too late.  The truth is that I actually never cared if you were 60% bad or even 100% bad.  I know that you're not the originating cause of your mistakes, and that the originator actually isn't any of our fans, non-fans, team members or ex-team members.  People can point their fingers at me all they like, but it's actually not me either since I don't cause all their mistakes either.

In any case, people can believe whatever they wish, and I won't stand in their way.  The flipside of that is that by not standing in their way, I won't be helping them back up either.  There are some things people must learn for themselves, but that's outside the scope of TSL.  So, in order to teach this, I must step outside the scope of TSL as well, at least temporarily.  My "help" during my time here has obviously been misinterpreted as something else which I don't agree with.

But anyway, just keep in mind that deep down I know that you never did anything "bad" or anything you need to apologize for.  It's just human nature.  And to those that profess otherwise, I'm human too. XD

That was a great speech!  ;D Your work here will not go unnoticed. The positive contributions you've made to the team will defintetely be remembered. At least I'll never forget them! And despite what's happened here, I still wish to strive for the team, to earn my way there. In school my grades may not be too good (then again, my parents say I'm a good student! XD), but I strive for the prize. Although education in the eyes of my peers is not seen positively, and I may even hate the work, but the prize is good, and I do what I am told to the best of my ability, which is all I can be asked to do. You can only do as much as you can. In order to do more, you must work your way there, and do the tests truthfully. Life has hurdles, sometimes intentional, and in order to surpass who we are and become what we want to become, we must overcome the hurdles thrown at us. For more on my rants, visit my blog.

To avoid my threade going into oblivion all together, I shall revive it... I am in high-school for anyone wondering, and it is very exciting... I wish I didn't have to go science today... Argh.... Well, in any case, I just thought I would give people an update on my life currently... My family is doing well, and things are clearing up nicely. It's starting to return back to normal. No one is sick anymore, and my family feels very well. I am concerned however about my grandmother. She's around 90 years old, and has had operations galore. A few hip and heart operations, among others, and she's still kicking. Although I heard she may need another one. My dad said it is minor, but still. I lost my grandfather to Alzheimers in second grade, and I never knew him, nor did he know me. My mom lost her brother before my parents even met. He was twenty something.  (I prefer not to disclose why he died.) So I dearly hope my grandmother survives. My mom's side of the family is doing well. My grandparents on her side are getting through life well.

Well, that's all for now!

Unfortunately, I do not have much. One kid today took a hold of my sweatshirt around my waist, and then pulled me across the hall, and eventually I fell over, hurting my leg. My leg feels better, but still. He claims that he just wanted my sweatshirt, and I have no doubt that's what he wanted. But I always double-knot my sweatshirts so when I walk they don't come undone. He also threw my hat down two floors, in what's called a Lightwell. It's sort of a balcony in the middle of the building in which you can see to the lowest floor. He threw it down that, claiming he intended to throw it against the wall, but just aimed too high. I don't think him and I will be friends too much longer... Oh well, that's about it. I was sitting at a table during lunch with the GSA to get people to become an Ally, which is someone who wants to stop harrasment of gay people. The people who sign are not neccesarily gay, but support them and want harrasment to stop. We got a lot of signitures. We also had a table last wednesday dedicated to celebrating national coming out day. We handed out tons of ribbons! They really liked all of my support! (I gave up my entire lunch block for it. I had a full hour and a half lunch, and gave it up for the GSA! :))

Post by: Yonkey on October 18, 2006, 01:24:04 PM
Harassment in general is I'm sure something your school won't tolerate, so you could always report it.  I'm not really sure if they'll do anything or not though, it depends on the administrative staff. 

I didn't really experience any bullying when I was in grade 9, because they mostly picked on the really short people. ::)  I also looked a lot older than I was, so they were probably too scared to even think it. :P

But yeah, my best advice is to form a group of friends.  Or better yet, become friends with at least one of the toughest people in your grade (that's what I did :P).  I used to make a couple friends in all my classes.  So, I didn't have a "circle" of friends per se, but I liked friends that were in other circles.  So, while I could have joined whatever group I wanted, I only really decided on one in my senior years.


EDIT: Grammar. :P

Heh, I know what you mean actually.  Some of them never change. ::)

I guess the more important thing is that you grow up, and realize how truly pathetic they are.  Consequently, if anyone tries anything similar to you again, you'll know exactly how to deal with it. 8)

So, the way I see it is that it all comes down to experience.  Sure, it's a bad experience, but it's one you won't forget, and hopefully one that you'll learn from so that if it ever re-occurs (which it usually won't), it won't hurt anywhere near as much. :)

For give my double post, but this is fairly important. My dad got into an accident on halloween night (go figure XD!) He is fine, and it was a three car accident. His car is a bit dented, but nothing serious or longterm... He was just turning into my road, and a car stopped behind him, to let him go. Then another car zoomed right down the road smashing into the car that stopped, and that car just barely hit my dad's car. No one was hurt, however the car that hit first did get his front totaled... My dad now has to fill out papers and stuff...

Please forgive my constant double posting in this thread, but it is vital. Someone extremely close to my family
has less than 2 weeks to live. She is a woman who used to tutor my sister and I, and she is/was a great person. She's suffered from cancer around her eye, thus causing her eye to be removed, but seemed to have adjusted quite well. Now, quite recently in fact, she has been suffering from pain in her sides. Evidently, it was Liver cancer.  She is dying, and is in a lot of pain, and she was an important part of my life. She is not neccesarly related to me, but she is still extremely close to us all. My family has had to endure cancer's burden's more than once, twice, or even three times. My uncle, whom I have never met, died in his twenties from cancer, another uncle survived it, my mom survive skin cancer, and a cousin of mine has it currently. But I find it rather shocking that such an important person in my life has been infected by it's burden of evil. I knew her since my second year in kindergarten, and I will am devastated by such news. I am now in highschool, freshman year to be exact, and have known her since way back then. I will never see her again. And she was an amazing woman. She's gone through cancer twice, and now her battle is over. It is truly devastating to me to hear such sad news. This news I just learned last night. In only a whole weekend she has been predicted to die in less than two weeks. I will miss her very, very much.

Again, I hope you forgive my double post. A lot has happened recently, and this threade is one of my only escapes from life's many, many burdens. As heavy as these burdens are, I intend to live strongly, and cherish those close to me for eternity. I will always remember those whom I cherish, and even the memory of those I never met, I will carry on forever...  :no:

Sometimes that's just how things turn out. But there's always a reason for them. I'm Catholic but because of this forum's rules I won't go into much religous talk. I must say that I am sorry and that I will be praying for you and you're family/family friend.

I regret to inform you that two weeks and a day after she was diagnosed, she departed this plain of existence. She was a great friend to me. She was my aid in kindergarden (Yes, I had a teaching aid in kindergarden. I prefer not to say why.) and my tutor in later years. She and my mom were close, as were my sister and I. She tutored my sister and me, and I shall never forget her. She was a great, great woman, and will never be forgotten by those who knew her. Later on I may post a picture of her, but it depends. She will be missed, dearly.

Well, sorry for not posting anything in my own thread sooner, but I kind of forgot I had one... An update is in order, is it not?

To begin: I PASSED DRIVER EDUCATION JUST EARLIER TODAY!!!!

Yesterday was my 16th birthday! I got my very first Cell Phone! YAY! XD

To those wondering about those who have recently died in my life, all is well thus far. It has been a very rocky road for me and my family, but we've survived and pulled through all of the hard ships! The teacher who died earlier this year, I have noticed that the pain kicks in sometimes months after their death. It hurts to think that someone I've known since kindergarden suddenly died of cancer without warning. She died within two weeks of being rediagnosed with it. As they say, the good die young. And she was pure of heart, if you ask me. She was a very loving, caring woman, who I'm sure will watch over my family! R.I.P.

And to move on from that sad note: I've been promoted once, I got a raise, and now I'm up for another promotion! Let's all hope that I get it! Keep your fingers crossed! So, how is everyone doing? I'm currently on summer vacation in my neck of the woods... How are you all doing?

Well actually, I plan to get my Permit this week!  :P I still have a lot to learn about driving though... I may drift in and out of the forum periodically. It all depends on how my schedule deals itself out. Oh, and I have succesfully graduated freshman year in high school! I am now a sophomore! I just hope this school year won't be filled with as many hardships as the previous one was. Not just my own losses, but also those of the school in general. It's been an extremely rocky year, what with students who's lives have been taken from them. Numerous kids, not just one. Some were self-inflicted, others were accidental, and some were completely unexpected. I really prefer not to get into the matter, to protect my identity really, so no one knows where I live. I mean, I don't want Michael Jackson visiting my house all of a sudden, do I? Anyway, looking up to the future, I'm quite pleased. I mean, afterall, ReBoot has been revived! For THREE MOVIES! AND THE FANS CHOOSE THE PLOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've already voted for my favorite, which is ReBoot: Arrival. Go to www.zeros2heros.com for more information...
