      I've been in and out on the site doing other life things, so I figured I'd check back in.


      I saw PUP live with @Hightower and sat with him watching @palmeirl throw herself into the mosh pit of Modern Baseball. She missed PUP, so we minded her things like two (Inebriated) dads while we watched her flail around.


      I saw Warcraft. Nothing too amazing but it's admittedly cool seeing the world I'd spent a lot of my teenage years trapsing around come to the big screen.


      I'm planning more trip stuff for August. Seeing a Japanese band called Toe in Dublin with @palmeirl and seeing PUP again in August with hopefully the same folks (And @CaptainNai!) in Birmingham.


      Also RT Ireland. I can't wait.


      Peace for now.

      Hey I'm still alive. Losing weight steadily and keeping on the path. Don't worry, I'll still be dead around the 35 mark, so don't worry about me sticking around too long.


      Junk food+drink ain't hard to give up. Haven't touched a soft drink since September, chocolate since December before Easter Sunday. Some might agree with me, some might not.


      Either way, don't make excuses. Don't make a thing out of dieting, just do it because you want to, not because you're obligated. I didn't call it dieting, I tried new food and I'm down just about 70lbs. I'm going to keep going but here is some more advice.


      Your first month or two is hard, but you forget the habit. You forget the compulsion and that is the best part because you won't miss it until you look at it one day in a supermarket or a gas station and go "Meh".


      If you're one of the few people still in contact with me, you'll be bored to death reading this because of how much I talk about my weight loss. Then again you also talk to me on a regular basis, so why are you reading an update journal?


      Anyways other than that I'm fine. Seeing some good friends at the end of the month.


      I was worried coming here would be a mistake. A sort of gateway back into old habits but I know I'm better than that. I miss some of you guys. But I don't miss here. Or a lot of the parts of here. And that is the greatest achievement I've made this year so far.

      I really don't use this thing like I used to. And that speaks to my presence dissipating from here largely because I've been more and more absent from the communities I used to frequent.


      I still consider myself in the RT UK and RT Ireland communities, at least in terms of attending events and meeting folks and I think that's going to be about it. I've also set up a place that I can still hang with some people, but that's not something I'm going to go into; it's a new place I call home and that's all that needs to be said. It's not a new group, it's not an exclusive club and it certainly ain't something I'm going to mention past this journal.


      Other than that I'm doing just swell. Take care.

      Quick summary.

      Hugged @Hightower. Multiple times.

      Had drinkies with @Drekr and @CaptainNai and a lot of others. Multiple times.

      I swung @palmeirl around while we danced to All My Friends by LCD Soundsystem. I'll call it now as my favourite part of the weekend.

      I then hugged the DJ who played it as the final song of the night by my request. Also one of my favourite moments to see how happy he was I made my promise to hug him if he played it.

      I hugged @palmeirl and @Hightower at the train station while holding back a lot of tears. (Poorly, might I add.)

      I waited at the bus station with @Drekr and @CaptainNai at almost 1AM for my bus back to the airport. More teary-eyed hugs and a lot more on the bus.

      Drowsily listened to White Panda to keep myself awake at the airport. Took the 6:35AM flight to back to Dublin and crashed on my couch at 11AM. I was awake over 25 hours.

      And now I'm here. Looking at photos of the weekend.

      And uh yeah. Kind of cried while looking at them for the first time. So here's to another year. And seeing all of you guys again next year.

      HEY THIS IS BIG TEXT.

      Oh hey it worked. Or it didn't and I'll look like an ass once this is posted.


      Aaanyways hey there, it's been two weeks since my last post and I wanted to just keep this "regular" posting going as I'm slowly but surely becoming less and less relevant on here.

      First thing's first; I attended RT Ireland. It was great, got to meet a bunch of new people and familiar faces which is always a ton of fun. Didn't get a chance to meet @burnie due to a dinner obligation with friends but we'll meet one day.

      Second thing is second; I didn't get into college. Well who cares. I honestly expected this and thanks to Ireland's mature student program I can probably apply in another two years, show them the portfolio that I've worked on (and am still adding to) and hopefully get in then. In the meantime I am going to be travelling a lot. Where to? Not sure. Amsterdam is an option, as is France and England, but for now it's still in planning.

      Third thing is third; I've left Rooster Speak. I don't want this to sound like a big thing so I'm just adding it here because I talked to a few people who were completely unaware of it recently and wanted to just say it. I've been gone for over three months with a few exceptions. My reasons being private and that I'd like to keep it private, I'll say I've had some of the best times of my life on that server. I've travelled hundreds of miles to spend time with those I love and will continue to do so, just outside of the group for the most part. I will still try to be part of certain events but will understand if circumstances prevent me from doing so. Someday I might come back, but for now I'm looking inward to personal goals and improving myself before anything else happens.

      I've been given small symbols of great friendships.

      I've met friends from there or by proxy who I will always consider friends for life.

      Quick update.

      I'm here. Looking forward to trips. Looking forward to seeing friends.

      Still hanging with some close friends and working on new ideas.


      Didn't hear from college yet, outlook bleak but whatever. I'll just use the money to travel. Probably Paris. Or Amsterdam.

      Probably Amsterdam.

      For what you ask?

      Just poking the admins about it now, I can't directly put my foot down on what time as I can't attend it anyway (xboxless for the time being).

      I do know with some of the admins that have gotten back to me Saturday is the favored day, but I've also been told it's Canadian Thanksgiving this upcoming weekend... so it might be good for the Canadian population of our groups if we knock it back another week... plus, maybe the servers will be a little more friendly by then.

      What do you guys think?
