Yeah, strike out on your own, dude. Gather a couple of friends together and find somewhere you can all live (more people means cheaper rent) and you'll get it sorted out. It might take a while until your life becomes comfortable, but at least you'll be living somewhere you like.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.

i don't make that much cash for my own place

You could try getting in the graphical business (web or whatever). You're pretty good at it

Congrats to anyone who actually read through all my ranting.

Thanks :lol:

BTW, Are there any Uncharted 2 players here?

Yeah yeah yeah yeah :D
Dark Lord of the Sith is also a huge fan, but he hasn't bought it yet because he can't currently afford all his time (including university time) being devoured by a game :p

I suppose but i've done some searching and they generally require that i know some stuff i don't know or even want to be bothered learning since im not even gonna use it.

@Allathar/Vortigern - My actual friends are in different states or miles upon miles away, none of them are very good with money either ,even if they can be fun people. Thing like my current situation have been my entire life to be honest there have been plenty of other cornered situations as well, i just try to deal with it.

SGU was again awesome this week. Seems like it's moments before someone arrives at his mental breaking point... Telford was once again his usual sneaky bastard self, spending time with Young's wife and telling her Young still sleeps with TJ. Then Young finally does what he should've done a while ago: beat the crap out of Telford. Was good to see some of Wray's personal life, as well as Scott's. The poor guy, discovering he has an 8 year old son. Rush is once again manipulating everyone, but you can't blame him really, since the Ancient chair is probably the only way they'll be able to return home. Then there's Spencer, who it seems has run out of his supply of medicines (anti-psychotics?).
Spoiler

It has been reported that some victims of rape, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being raped. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

They should all just promote Rush to the leader and get this show off right.

Yes, because having a sociopathic scientist who doesn't want to go home leading the mission to go home will totally help.

*sigh* My parents are weird. For some reason they decided I was spending too much time playing games on the comp (although I keep it to under an hour a day) and they decided to limit it to only twenty minutes. What the heck? Twenty minutes isn't enough time to get anything done. And no, I'm not your average nerd. I'm a fairly athletic, social, and outgoing guy and I have no people problems or anything. My grades are up and I haven't really done anything lately to offend them, so...

Anyway, now that the random rant is over, I won't have as much time on Revora as I used to, because my overall computer time has suffered as well as the gaming time. Go figure. I won't "quite" be a lurker like TLC or certain others, and I still will be able to get on intermittently, but it won't be as regular as usual.

Most of you will read this post and go "What the heck? Who is this guy?" In that case, feel free to skip over my problems and don't waste your time. For those who do know me or care at all about this, have fun without me. If anything changes, I'll tell you guys.

See ya.

Have you tried... talking to them? Persuading them? Telling them that a mere twenty minutes of gaming isn't normal? That everybody else sits at least an hour a day behind their screens? Convincing them of the fact that the time you won't spend anymore on the computer, will instead be spend on drinking and drugs experimenting?

Oh, and the 'if you don't know me, feel free to skip it' part is usually at the beginning of a post. Just saying.

Implore them: what's the problem? Why can't do you what you want? Tell them you're sensible and happy. Eventually they'll bring life into it. Say: define life.

Point them to this thread and tell them that by limiting the amount of time you spend fulfilling your personal desires they will stunt your growth as a person and wreck your emotional development into a potentially well-adjusted adult. By dictating the terms of your youth, they are creating an ideal environment for the growth of a sociopath or, at best, a social incompetent, and it'll be all their fault. Tell them that if you grow up to be a serial killer it'll be because of how they raised you and they'll have to live with the guilt forever.

N.B. Vortigern will not be held responsible for the consequences of pursuing the actions suggested herein, and any attempt to follow my advice is done entirely at your own risk.

GAH!!! Ech... YESTERDAY'S STARGATE UNIVERSE EPISODE!

Spoiling...

How dare he beat up Rush! Not only that... leave him on that planet! Disgusts me... If Rush gets back, he better have a gun ready.

I was right, Spencer did commit suicide :p Fuck, got to hate Rush, but also love him for how he pulled it off. Can't blame Young for beating him up and leaving him on the planet though... After all, nobody likes to be framed for murder.

Wonder how Rush is going to get off the planet... Perhaps using the broken alien spaceship? Well, we won't know until two months. Meh, I hate mid-season breaks.

Br... break? I don't... Break?

Bah! Rush should be leading this expedition. And when he gets back, he will. I'll make sure of it. But yesh, the ship is significant in his return back to Destiny. Positive on that. It's all part of his master plan.

I'm reasonably certain I'm getting an M4A1 Airsoft gun for Christmas. My bros all have Airsoft guns as well, so it'll see some heavy use. I'll probably get a match or two on video and upload it to YouTube, if anyone's interested in seeing it...
