I fear I may be on the way out of a relationship for the second time in a year. Adult life is hard sometimes.

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully, next time you'll find someone who you're compatible with, and hopefully that happens soon.

I definitely agree that adult life is hard. I'd love to go back in time and freeze my age at around 17. That way I'd have the freedom to drive an automobile, but I wouldn't have to worry about adult responsibilities. I'd take high school classes over adult responsibilities any day of the week.

And to think I used to think that my high school teachers threw too much work on me, while after I finished I'd just play video games, drive around with my friends, and text my friends on AOL Instant Messenger all the time. If only I knew what was coming, I'd definitely had taken high school a lot more seriously.

Going off on a bit of a tangent while I'm talking about high school, I'd have loved to have been diagnosed with ADD as a kid rather than an adult. Then I'd be able to do my homework without pulling an all nighter or doing my work in other classes on the day it was due. Especially since with the diagnosis, I'd realize why I could never stay focused enough to do the work on time. I always just thought I was a slacker.

I even had a psychiatrist, but she was really no help. She did diagnose me with high functioning autism, but she didn't offer any advice or help me in any way. She just introduced me to another student, and he had issues similar to myself.  I think it was basically just putting us together to kill two birds with one stone, as she basically just left us to deal with stuff on our own without offering any advice. It was pretty much the blind leading the blind.

I was assigned a psychiatrist due to an incident involving kids kicking me in my injured knee and preventing me from using the bathroom. They kicked me and led me to the left of the entrance and I couldn't take it anymore and I relieved myself there, which happened to be right in front of the window to the teacher's lounge, which was tinted on the outside, so I didn't know what was there. Of course, the kids that kicked me were at the entrance away from the window, so none of the teachers saw them and of course no one would verify my story. I got in big trouble and the teachers thought I had a screw loose. In the meantime, the students who kicked me got no punishment because no one could verify that they were there. The psychiatrist and the principal, the latter of whom I had to talk to the day the incident occurred after I was called down to his office via the intercom, probably thought I was making it up.

Plus, I kept not getting the letters that my psychiatrist wrote to give me my scheduled appointment date. All of the notes for teachers and students went in plastic folders that were attached to the door, so I don't know if other students took them or if my psychiatrist just gave up on me. My psychiatrist never called me down to her office on the intercom or came up to talk to me during homeroom. So I'm inclined to believe the latter was more likely, since you'd think the psychiatrist would put some extra effort in to make sure that I still saw her. I even told her that I never got her appointment schedule notes during the one time I did get a note with my appointment. That was the very last time I ever saw her. That was my freshman year in high school, and I never saw her for my second semester during my freshman year. And I never had a psychiatrist in my Sophomore, Junior or Senior years. Plus, I was never reprimanded for not going to see the psychiatrist, so I guess that shows how much the staff cared about me at that high school.

So, yeah. I guess I'll amend things. I wish I could freeze my age at 17, but I'd definitely go to a different school.

I kinda miss my high school work ethic. I don't miss my high school anxiety, constant migraines, and random outbursts which were likely a result of said work ethic. Also, I think I've learned to cram the same results into less time now, so I'm ultimately happier and probably more efficient.

Now if only I could get my college exercise routine back... (current exercise consists of walking to get a hamburger).

From grade 3 til 12 I saw a psychiatrist and rotated through various pills that slowly killed me inside, but made me a functioning member of society.  I stopped taking them as an adult.  I make do.  I have problems...  lot of problems, but I make do.

I definitely wish I could do high school again.  I'm so much more prepared now.

Hey, I can chime in on relationships too.  So yeah, I'm single now, after a 10 year on and off relationship.  I'm in my mid-30s and don't know what to do with this "single" thing.  Life is hard.

I didn't mean that to read as dark as it did.  I really am coping just fine.  I'm an adult and life goes on.  So... uh.  Next topic?  I don't know.  I play outdated game, watch outdated movies and don't watch TV.  I've got nothing!

Haha! No worries. I think the three of us all just wanted to air some frustration. Hope things work out for you and for you, Jenni!

I play some new games (Civilization VI, the XCOM 2 expansion, and Prey), but I don't think that there are many others here who are particularly interested in those games. Except mr. Big Bird, of course.

The fact that they brought Jim in, brings some credibility.  I kind of want to see it.  For some reason he doesn't do Tigger though.  I find that puzzling.

It is officially my birthday, which interesting enough lands on both international women's day and the birthday of the man who made the odyssey(brown box).

Happy Birthday, Zacal. :)

 

I've been playing more board games and reading/listening to more books lately. Unfortunately people didn't post much in those threads even when the forum was active.

I'm just now seeing this. This is nice to see. I'm really drunk though.

I look the best in drunk eyes, so it's ok. ;)

I decided to go for the GOG.com $3 mystery hat even though these things are always a crapshoot, and I actually got a game I wanted: Worms Armageddon.

St. Patrick's Day is my birthday, so I guess I've got a little birthday luck going on this year.

Sorry, I've been having a really rough couple of weeks.  I haven't really been around or even thought about it.

Everyone here probably already knows this, but I just saw that The Curse of Monkey Island has been released on GOG and on Steam! Wow!

A pirate I was meant to be!
Trim the sails and roam the sea!

WOO!

Already bought. I haven't played this one in awhile because it's the only one that's really tough to get running, even with SCUMMVM and all.

Discord was a mistake.

I dunno, every time I pop into discord it usually takes hours or sometimes a day for someone to reply.  There just doesn't seem to be a lot of activity in the Double Fine fan front, period.

It seems just that whenever Double Fine is in between projects, the activity drops, but when they release something the activity rises: even for their off-topic forums.

I'd imagine once Psychonauts 2 comes out the activity on the forum will be a much higher volume than the Discord. But, of course that remains to be seen, since it's really too early in the life of the Discord to really make projections about activity spikes and drops.

I'll still be around.  My forum lives are about 10 years on average.  So I've got a good 4 more to go.

I usually only abandon forums when they shut down or massively change(that actually wasn't a TTG knock.  I had another one in mind).

I'm a pretty loyal puppy.
