No, I've played the demo... Do you remember the post I made in the demo feedback thing about the easter egg...?

Don't know, but it is entitled a thread for my feedback in the demo feedback area. Not that hard to miss.

Well if you don't know, and I don't know, it obviously wasn't that important. XD

Forgive my double post, but I couldn't help myself. I'M BACK! W00T! And to think I was just getting used to it... XD Anywho, I wanted to state my own public opinions on something. 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

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!

It's going well so far, but I'd rather not go to science in about ten minutes... I am in a study which is being turned into a living version of the Perv thread! XD (Let's just say that many things are occuring that I will not post on the forum for being too explicit to disclose. No nudity, though, thank god!) I have a free study block a lot because of no homework. I have to stay for an hour using the internet a lot. Well, I'm off to science now. My teacher just dismissed me.

LOL!  Don't worry about it. :P I remember a few people in Grade 9 that were like that too. ::)

They'll grow up... eventually. :P

XD!

Yeah, that was one thing I really liked about high school.  If you work hard, you'll get good grades. 8)  The other good thing is the friends you make are awesome.  Even today (5 years later), I still keep in touch with a few. :)

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! :))

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
