Now.... now I KNOW I'm awful!!! I haven't been on in, what? Months?
Well, it's not just here. It's all the boards. I haven't had much time or will to do ANY rping lately. >.< It makes me sad, because it's something that I'm so passionate about. I hope it's just a phase. A very long phase......
Well, I added a little lyrics box from my favorite anime to make it up to you!
I know how you feel ~.~ It's like, you don't feel like you have the CAPICITY to write anything worth posting, plus you just plain don't have the initiative. I've been trying to do better, lately; postin' on stuff (or TRYING to -.-), mostly out of obligation to people who I'm RPing WITH. *tries to count the number of RPs she was in that died during her long absence between the end of august and now* *fails*

Listen, the both of you have obligations that are far more important than ANY forum you're a part of. Please don't feel bad for that which cannot be helped - you're both in school (high school, if I'm not mistaken), and to me, and a lot of adults, an education is extremely important.
I know it's not easy to get a good job in America, and the best way to give yourself the best chance at it is what you've both been doing: Studying, and studying hard. It's not fun (for the most part), and can often bore you out of your brains, but in order for you to even survive once you move out of home, you need your education behind you.
This message, though, isn't just for Sadie and Eve; it's for everyone on this forum, including visitors. If you have schoolwork you need to do, please do it. I never finished my education, and now, at 25 years old, I regret it. I know I'm a fast learner (particularly in subjects I'm interested in... lol), so I know I could learn at school, and I could have when I was younger and still in school. But I didn't. Now, all I do all day is sit on my butt playing SimCity 2000, Endless Online, talk to Kazuki (he's my RL fiancee, as well (yes, Sadie, we're engaged - I should have mentioned it on Niobe's Place), mess around with HTML and my forums, drink coffee and smoke cigarettes. It's worth concentrating on your education, believe me.
*gets out of mummy/older person/trying-to-be-overly-helpful mode*
*coughs with embarrassment*
Yeah, sorry peoples... I like to try to help if I can, and sometimes it goes overboard... lol...
Anyways, Sadie and Eve, to me, there's no apologies necessary, but thank you for providing it and an explanation. And neither of you are horrible staff members. On the contrary, I see a lot of good work done here by the staff, and I see a lot of respect between staff and members. To me, that's the ideal relationship to have on a forum. It works well, no one breaks rules, everybody appreciates everybody else, be it staff or members.

You're very welcome, Eve. And it's not being nice, it's just being truthful... lol...
ALRIGHT! I ADMIT! I'M AN OLD FART TO ALL YOU YOUNGSTERS! LMFAO!!!
*kicks self for not remembering the holidays*
Hey! At least I'm REALLY young at heart - when I wanna be... lol...
Happy holidays, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas (for those that celebrate it), and I can almost see hordes of members staying up just for a brilliant New Years Eve! That is, I know I'm cranking my sterio really loud come midnight... lol...

^^ You're sweey, Switch. Thank you for understanding.
(And, I knew you were engaged ^^ CONGRATS!!) I can actually remember back to MxO when you guys ferst met. Was it the one HYOOJ thread, the one that's title had something to do with demons, or was it another?

"The Demons That Lurk Inside..." It was one of Enzo's threads... Hehe - Kazu and I were chatting just the other day about that, actually... The way I missed the holstered gun of Relic's, so to be a smartass, he put it in bold in his next post! LMAO!!! Hell, I was still very new to RPing anything back then...
But I also met someone known as E-Daisy there... And I remember being struck then, as now, at her maturity and sense of fun... Oh, I found a cached page of MxO too, a thread you were in... I found that sig, too... you want me to send it to you as is, or I can make it transparent... Soon...
*remembers she just formatted the harddrive and got xp installed - is amused she has to hunt down all the graphics programs again*
Post by Captain Niobe on Jan 11, 2006 4:38:40 GMT -5
Not a problem... I just have to find all my graphics progeams again, then I'll send two versions: Transparent background and non-transparent background...
I'll use the email addy you have up at Niobe's Place... Is that ok? If not, PM me the email address you want me to send it too, and I'll send them ASAP (when I find the graphics programs I want again... lol - which should be real soon)...
*grumbles that she hasn't found embellish again yet*
