    Ffffffine.

    i feel lonely right now.

    is that still too vague?

    I don't think that alarm ever turns off

    okay, fine, you want details? i'll give you details. i'll give you details that will make me wish i didn't.

    i'm a real shut-in. I have been ever since a really bad bromance break-up caused by my own assholish nature. That happened about 8-10 years ago. Basically, my best friend kinda dropped me for other, better friends and i never really healed.

    Problem is, I get lonely every once in a while because, as introverted as i may be, being a shut-in is not fun all the time.

    One thing i never managed to do but wanted to is play an actual real-life tabletop RPG campaign with people. And i really would love to do that. i tried online Tabletop RPGs, with programs, over IRC or play-by-post and it just doesn't really work for me.

    Anyway, until I can manage to heal over that time when a person i considered my best friend decided that i was a bad person, I think i'll keep getting lonely every once in a while. it's kinda hard to get a better sense of self-worth when you also struggle with depression, tho.

    Aaaanyways, i hope that's enough details.

    Have you thought about mending that bond?

    Might help, or, at worst, give you some closure that you need.

    Find a group that gets together and join them for the tabletop thing. If it doesn't work or you don't like it, don't go back again.

    The past is useless

    The worst thing you can do is allow someone who wronged you to define your life for a second longer than you need to get over them

    Your life will not change unless you change it yourself

    Moving forward is painful and scary and hard but if you work at with enough intensity and drive it will drown out the agony you feel about the past (I speak from experience)

    Matt, I thought the conversation you were in in the Tube thread about RL names vs forum names was super interesting. Do you just not like Pony because it's Pony or because it's not your real name though? Like, if it was something else, would you be more comfortable being called it?

    Edit: Wait, sorry for calling you Pony in a post about why you don't like being called Pony *headdesk*

    to answer your question directly

    I don't like being called Pony for two reasons

    1. Is I don't like MLP and I never have and I don't want to be associated with it, this username predates the existence of MLP:FiM and its meteoric rise in popularity and the "brony" phenomenon and I want to be as far away from that as humanly possible. Hence why I don't use an actual pony avatar anymore, for example.
    2. The name Pony I associate with the forumer identity Pony, and who I used to really be on this forum and the kind of things I used to do and say. I do not like that person and do not want to be associated with that person anymore. It's bad memories, bad feelings, bad history. I want to walk away from it. I have grown up a lot in the ten years I've been posting here and I am not the person I was when I started. I am not really Pony anymore.

    Oh god, Hakkekage Polygon got some new deets on this Fire Emblem thing. The good news is that this new one has same-sex marriage in it! Cool, good for you Nintendo! Except not only does it sound like they are definitely going to do the two completely separate versions thing, but gay male relationships are exclusive to one game, and gay lady relationships are exclusive to the other. Conquest has man on man action, Birthright for your waifu on waifu needs.

    http://www.polygon.com/2015/6/23/8836513/fire-emblem-fates-same-sex-relationships-nintendo

    I guess if I ever get that game I will have to get birther version then

    there's no way i'm not getting both

    I think i will start with Conquest because that's supposed to be the easier one, right?

    I need some practice before getting punished for poor strategy and having to restart my game 10 million times

    whenever you are nervous about something like this, the key is to do it as wrong as possible

    like throw in four extra vowels

    like

    Aweeoowaaweewa

    and they know you're doing it on purpose and having fun

    so that way you get corrected and now you know how to say it right

    Speaking of names and internet identities, my friend and I have been introducing ourselves with our real names when recording our podcast and I'm wondering if that's something I'm comfortable with. I mean, this is what everybody on every podcast seems to do already, and no one will ever really listen to mine I'm sure, but at the same time it's not as if I am just going around volunteering my first and last name to the [chat] thread normally, right? That would seem like a silly thing to do, and why would anybody do it? But if I were to post a link to this podcast, I would be doing just that. Not sure what to do, could just do first names?

    Make up an alias with a cool last name?
