Felt that, seeing how this site is going to go tits up in about 2 months, I thought I'd put this thread up.
It's purpose is to chronicle what's been of our lives since we first became aware of each other's presence back on pchan, and maybe add some thoughts in retrospect. And given the thread title, feel free to be as introspective and self-centered in these stories as you wish.
So, being OP, I figured I'd start off with my life story (since 2010).
Honestly, S1 horses helped me through an unemployment rut I had back from first year uni. That and binging X-men Evolution. Then I entered second year of uni and had my gf. I introduced her to horses and things were alright for a time. Actually it was a year from then that I went into the whole tabletop hobby. That, in its way, helped me retain a network of friends away from home and prevented any undue emotional stress as I fell out with my gf. My application to go into optometry didn't work out, and I had finished my uni degree. Oh, during this time I also tried to apply to med school twice but it kind of fell through
So then I thought about doing it in Colombia. The first semester I was homologued into was a bit rocky as I was adjusting to the environment there, though due to not having histology I was set back to familiar territory. Made a couple of new friends and a handful of acquaintances. It was during this time that I started watching Urusei Yatsura (and tbf, came to understand why people had 2D waifus) on and off, to be finished about 7 months ago. As far as her works go, and judging from Ramna and Inu Yasha, they have a tendency to meander and give blue balls, so as much as I liked UY, I wouldn't watch it again.
The second semester I attended was gangbusters for me, though my friend had to redo almost the whole semester. He's still in school, but we only see each other on Mondays now due to time concerns. Third semester on the other hand, threatened to overwhelm me, mostly with Pathology. While I did pass that course, yet another friend of mine didn't make the cut and currently is staying away for a semester (Luckily I live like 15 mins walking from her, so we meet up whenever time permits).
Had this year's summer at this point, which I mostly spent trying to 100% Ironclad Tactics (which I very nearly finished, save for one particular mission in the European DLC) and finishing Darkest Dungeon. Oh, and getting some boardgame and getting introduced tPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
