@FPS_Gamer123 We're actually changing it next month haha, it'll relatively be the same, but we're introducing a shoot ton of new stuff (including community blogs!), so everything needs to be rearranged a bit.
I'm not serious about the title by the way, by all accounts I'm simply struggling to decide what to do with my life, but I certainly don't consider it a midlife crisis.
I apologise for not blogging more regularly, but the truth is with the site being as hectic as it is, school, and writing a book and balancing a social life etc, I tend to even forget that I have an account on here. I've read pretty much all the blogs that I've signed up to, so I'm still up to date with you guys, I just am not commenting as much as I was before.
Also, RobotGeek is getting a blog system much like this which I have to extensively test out, so a lot of my blogs are being written there at the moment.
I actually turned 19 during the week, which prompted a revelation I didn't really wish to acknowledge before.
I hate Birthdays, well, mine in particular. I realise this probably makes me sound like something of a old miser, when quite evidently I'm not, but I've always found birthdays a little weird, even since I was a kid. Sure, I enjoy getting free stuff, who doesn't? Yet it's the forced and incredibly false "niceness" of my peers that always puts me a little on edge.
People that I'll never talk to for 364 days of the year suddenly take an interest in my life and celebrate the fact that I came out of my mum's belly 19 years ago, despite the fact I've had no discernable impact on them whatsoever.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the company of my friends on my birthday, and I don't mind getting birthday wishes from them, but I find myself growing weary of other people around me quite quickly, simply because I have to be nice in return as well.
A typical conversation goes like this.
"What did you get?"
"Some guitar stuff, money"
"Oh you play the guitar?"
At this point, I realise that these people know nothing about me, and I try to end the conversation quite quickly.
"Yeah, I've got to go"
"OHH, where you going? Celebrating anywhere nice?" - This tends to be a subtle hint that they'd like an invite to a party if I'm hosting one
"No, it's a quiet affair this year."
"Oh, how comes?"
And the inane drivel goes on...
At the end of the day, I tend to be in a terrible mood because I've had to endure conversations with people that I genuinely can't stand, and what's worse, They're being NICE to me, so I have to be nice back!
@FPS_gamer123 It's not too bad actually! A fair amount of work but I'm enjoying it! I'm starting to look into video recording stuff and more unique content now, but I look forward to seeing you around the site!
Hey Dan, how's RobotGeek coming along? I've been pretty busy with school to keep track, I'll be heading on more often as second semester begins =D
"when quite evidently I'm not," Evidently requires evidence! I see no evidence. There may indeed be evidence that you are not old, but the fact (proved with evidence within the blog) that you are going through a midlife crisis is evidence to refute this claim, and well, the miser evidence is plain for all to see! Now that I know you play guitar, am I qualified to wish you a belated happy, uncomfortable birthday?
