Not even a need for a doctor's note? Things sure are easy over there

Must be a sweet professor. We need a doctor's note to excuse us from an exam.

At the time I registered Asuki was my only anime source so when things were licensed I didn't understand what happened, when I came back I was fully intergrated into using torrents etc. =)
But I'm male, granted I was 13 at the time, but still...I can't really read my posts without cringing and thinking "Oh..my God".

I said some stupid stuff when I first registered here as well. And as can be expected from age 14-21 I have changed quite a bit. Not sure how much my posting style has changed; even back then I took a conversational approach like I do now. The main difference is my ideas and maturity level.

That first post is still unmistakeably yours.

This got me curious about myself, but I find I run up against the Great Time Wall of 2005 when Animesuki crashed into a black hole (with toasted backups). So unfortunately, all I can point to is some inane "who do you like?" post in 12/2005 though I had a fair number of postings a year or two before that (I think I started appearing here in 2003?)

Not much changed other than I'm less likely to be a curmudgeon at any given instant (hard to believe, yes).

If you were here in 2003, shouldn't your account (minus most posts and threads you made in 2005) be safe? I thought that 2005 incident only affected those of us who registered in 2005 pre-December.

It destroyed my "pre-December 2005" account, I had to re-register. My memory is a bit fuzzy on where in 2003 as I was splitting time between several forums looking for one that I liked the moderation of. I was here before Shuffle! had its original run starting in Dec 2003... so that pretty much puts it in the 2003 period.

I'm getting confused, was that account made in 2005 or 2003/4? Because you said you posted a year or two before 12/2005, but I thought only accounts made in 2005 (but before December) were destroyed.

Uh, Shuffle started airing in July 2005. The game itself didn't come out until 2004.

Come to think of it, why does TRL always post within the template of "A Hero of a Thousand Faces" when it comes to deep-thought topics, with near zero humour? And he seems to be the only poster whom I have consistently read doing so.

EDIT :

Okay that is the last straw. I just lost one of the most important things in my life : a proper home.

I fought with my dad just now over a faulty air conditioner, whom he got a colleague to install years ago. I pressed him to get me the number of the person who installed it so I can call him tomorrow, and he just ignored me, when I slipped the word "idiot" from my mouth, he tried to hit me. I was so close to grabbing the tweezer from the oil-lamp at the altar and stabbing him but I did a shove throw instead, and my mum came out of her room and broke up our fight.

He was ranting that I wasn't studying and playing games all night (how can a person get Bs and As WITHOUT studying?), so I corrected him that he is just being idiotic, not providing for the family and having extramarital affairs. He told me to quit school and go work, so I just blasted him with every single mandarin and hokkien vulgarity I learned in my juvenile days. I was wrong for losing my temper, but that is certainly the limit. He claims that he has his limit that I was pestering him everyday about the aircon, but I only did so just now because it spoiled only today.

I was contemplating between taking him to court tomorrow for assault, but my exams is at the end of this week, and my mother's job as a babysitter hangs in the balance due to her image being ruined. At this rate, I am going to be stuck at a dead end job for the rest of my life for dropping out of college/university in my first year.

I find it astounding that I lost almost everything at this moment and am still standing : my savings, self-esteem, friends (all of which have gone overseas for their further studies), my ability to play the piano, my empathy and now, my home. What I have left are the few thousand books stored in my head, my sanity, and the less than $2000 in my bank. The next thing I would lose is my place in university because I have absolutely no money left to go there and get a piece of paper for my future.

My mother suggested that we each go our own way once I finish this semester - I would quit college and work, my sis will marry and move out, and the house would be sold and the cash will be split amongst us equally.

Have I really hit rock bottom with no chance of recovery? Or do I really have nowhere else to go but up?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

I believe he said he was in journalism at some point, which is what I'd assume it can be attributed to. Even when I disagree with him I feel swayed by his persuasive writing style

Still am. Listen to enough views from all different angles, and the shades of grey will grow only deeper. The challenge is not to lose yourself in the mist.

It gets harder every year.

That is because you get older and lose more braincells, thus slowing your analytical capabilities, not alot to do with that you have heard more.

Seeing from a perspective doesn't mean that one has to take that stand. Siding with anything or anyone is a choice, which includes the options to be neutral and walk away.

Come to think you it, you don't have to fret so much. Next year is your zodiac year so you should have a buff in 37 days - right at the start of an economic boom (or maybe 3 months late). After all, the best things in life are often kept simple and free.

Having Turkey day cumming up, I have a question.
How many people on this forum celebrate Thanksgiving? I know that many aren't from the states.

I don't, and as a bonus, I think you meant "coming" instead? Otherwise your statement has very unfortunate implications.

Cheers.

Unfortunate indeed.

No thanksgiving here either, which is kinda logical due to my location; no, not the one listed on the left, I meant Europe. ;D

At least I believe so, never heard of it being widely celebrated on this continent. Never really cared to research this stuff either.

Ah, the wiki lied to me or I misread it... bleh, I suppose I should start writing things down so I can look up my own chronology.
edit: ah I grabbed the wrong data, it aired July 7, 2005 – January 5, 2006

I do know I was here before the meltdown and had to reconstruct everything from scratch including re-registering. Everything else is foggy (filed under trivial memories and thereby buried in dust).
