Well, I want to cringe whenever I see my older posts, so maybe that's a good thing as it represents change. I was a little cunt.

Pretty much the same. Relatively less money these days though, due to price changes in food and gas, and only working seasonally.

Hair's long again though, it was crew cut when I was 20.

Look at the bright side. At least you still can afford an avatar. Turkey's girl is gone.

Kaz, I remember you saying something similar about not being interested in anything around 5 years ago. Step it up.

To live past the end of your myth is a perilous thing.

Also I feel wiser, kinder and quieter. All improvements.

Also, some things are so good they don't need to change much. See: sharks. =))

So here's a story: I still don't get along all too well with most people. I'm a freaking alien monster thing annoyingly irritating scary or something. I make it a point taking a risk, give it a try anyway from time to time. No promising results so far. Time again, I had to find out even artists are just people too. Bummer. I'll never understand how people let petty social hick-hack and personal misgivings blind themselves for great potential in creative collaboration, something greater than any one ego. But hey, we all make choices, and I'll make mine. Technically. And sexually.

Speaking of makeup, I'll be in/around New York for a month come August. I know most of you live on the west coast, but to everyone playing for the other team, care to say hi in person?

It's funny how I'm one of the few people here who actually ended up making videogames for a living, considering I never contributed to ToB itself. Whatever happened to the other contributors?

I took a specialization in game design with my software engineering degree. Of the 15 people in my graduating year with this...minor I guess you could call it, I'm fairly certain only one actually went into the game industry.

As for 10 years ago me. I was 17, graduating from high school and fat. I lost a ton of weight and I'm basically a completely different person, not including that I am married and own a house now. Bunch of shit happened to me though, my sister-in-law (well, future sister-in-law at the time) and her boyfriend, who was my close friend, died in a car crash. Then two years later, my Mom died suddenly in her sleep without warning at 52 years old, six months before my wedding. It has caused me to not waste my time or take shit from people I could care less about.

Not to bring in my sob story, everyone's got shit they deal with, but that is why I am so different compared to ten years ago. I know people who haven't changed one bit in ten years.

@gandalf
Damn, that's some tough shit. That's quite something you still manage to hang on and hang around. I don't really know what person I am, how I'd really react in such a tough spot, life hasn't tested me in that. Here's my contrast:

I have no landmarks in life, no points of orientation, no milestones. Not only that, I don't even have them indirectly through those of "friends"(?). No celebrations, no graduations, no applications, no events, no "next phase", no close persons, no goals and nothing to own. In short, no real history. That's a life like dreaming into a moody day without a clock. For this reason, even though I may have learned this or that trick of the mind, I don't think I have developed as a person to a significant degree, this you can only do socially embedded, in intimacy to others, good or bad, whereas I am distance, living in my head, a recluse outcast. Well I guess I grew a bit in that I had a kind of surrogate relationship with some of you here from time to time.


@Zeuter
It's funny we've never met, considering we are living rather close comparatively, yet you are more likely to meet others cross-atlantik. =D

Sorry that shit went down for you Gandalf, but I'm glad you're doing well.

Actually I did re-read Dune this year or last year technically. I remember thinking it was more enjoyable this time around than when I was younger.

Zeut when are you going to be in New York?
