Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I debated whether or not to post this but I feel I could use some outside perspective on things.
Recently, as in last month, my girlfriend of four years dumped me during a particularly turbulent time in my life due to family and personal issues. This hit me incredibly hard, not to say I didn't deserve it I was not the best boyfriend. But I have to say this hit me unduely hard due to my personal situation outside of her. It's led to a deterioration in everything I've been doing and a lack of will to do a whole lot else (Lead to me dropping 3 of my classes and not going to any of the classes I kept). I wake up with every intention to do so and then just don't go.
Fast forward a month and I am starting to feel better. She and I don't have much contact despite me trying to (probably a dumb idea). I wake up the day after my birthday, had a blast with friends went out drinking, to find a message from her on my facebook. In it she tells me that she has a new boyfriend and that she won't have any more contact with me for six months. She intends to be friends with me in six months. This kinda rocked me completely and sent me back into the slump that I had just been working my way out of. Again quit going to class and doing the things I enjoy.
Recently all I've been doing is playing video games and drinking beer. I go back and forth between feeling okay, incredibly depressed, and wanting to break everything within 10 feet of me. Basically I think I am just looking for advice on how to move past her quickly. I can't handle this whole set up of feeling like shit and skirting my responsibilities but I wake up everyday and just can't bring myself to go to class or do homework. When I try I just get sad and depressed and bust out a video game. I apologize if this was rambling and not exactly to the point I just need some ideas on ways to get past this and PA has always been good to me in the past.
More information if it helps I am 21 she is 22 we had been dating since late highschool and I transferred colleges to be at her school. We also had a brief stint of living together.
