Actually, since yesterday, a few things have been catching up with me... Kinda getting me down, but not too badly. Other than that, I'm alright.

How about you?
#664 to #663 - thezephyr **User deleted account** has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #665 to #664 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
It doesn't bother me... I worry about people, too.

And overall, I'm trying to make it so it doesn't affect me so much. Trying not to think about things too much...
#653 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Good morning Dammriver, how are you?
#654 to #653 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
I'm alright. Just a few things coming back up/getting to me...

How are you?
#655 to #654 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Well doing good for the most part.

So long as no one makes me try to take in all the problems I have to deal with all at once...I should be fine.
#656 to #655 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Well, hopefully nobody does bring it all up/try to have you take it all in...

Is anything else bothering you/did anything new come up?
#657 to #656 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Friend losing internet access for about 5 months soon....that's about it really.
#658 to #657 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Alright... Is there anything that you want to talk about?
#659 to #658 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Sorry for the late reply....was filling out applications for financial support.
#660 to #659 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
That's fine, sorry for my late reply. Gotta love shoveling snow.

So, is there anything that you want to talk about?
User avatar #661 to #660 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
not really at the moment
User avatar #637 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Hey dammriver. how are you?
#638 to #637 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
I'm alright. How are you?
#639 to #638 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Ear acting up.....is ringing at a high pitch....more so than usual........headache getting worse....what do?
User avatar #640 to #639 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Could you fix it again, or is it not too bad?

And could you take asprin, ibuprofen, or tylenol?
#641 to #640 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Not right now....

and I thought I DID fix it....there isn't really much I can do on my own....it just randomly started happening.

Its really starting to worry me again.....I can hear high pitched sounds made by some devices and my other ear cant. Example: when I look behind me the receiver next to me will give off a ping every second....but I cant hear that in my other ear.....
#642 to #641 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Is it too bad, or is it barely noticeable?
#643 to #642 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Oh no...its noticeable all right....it tends to be less noticeable when I relax.....is there anything related to stress or blood pressure...or anything that could affect that?


Also isn't hearing some high pitched sounds considered a good thing because we eventually lose that ability when we grow older?
User avatar #644 to #643 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
In relation to blood pressure: that could affect it... I'm not sure how much it would, though.

And yeah, hearing high pitched sounds is a 'good' thing... Remember when I asked you if you live next to any high-frequency radio transmitters, or some high voltage lines? That's why... They give off a high pitched sound. Then again, so can some household appliances and items.
#645 to #644 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Uhhhh.....also can you find ANYTHING regarding a sound emitting from somewhere that shot a vibration clear through BOTH ears....felt like a string running through my head was just plucked.....
User avatar #646 to #645 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
... Any type of older-model TV (that's on) near you? Other than that, I'm not entirely sure... Is it like a vibration, or just a high-pitched noise?
User avatar #647 to #646 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
A vibration like a described......it lasted a second but.....I felt it
User avatar #648 to #647 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
I'm not entirely sure what it was... Anything else happening that's somewhat odd?
#649 to #648 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
Well....could just be blood sugar causing the ringing its gone for now......also my stomach seems to be making a lot of noises lately....especially when using the restroom......I think I should start eating more.
User avatar #650 to #649 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
It could be a blood sugar problem...

Do you have any of these symptoms, etiher: headaches, double vision, staggering or inability to walk, a craving for salt and/or sweets, abdominal distress, allergies, unusual patterns in the frequency of urination, skin eruptions and inflammations, pain in the neck and shoulder muscles, memory problems, sudden/excessive sweating, or any others?
#651 to #650 - princesscadence (12/30/2012) [-]
a Headache, I think the distress thing...felt a little bit earlier, and just grinding my teeth at random the worse it gets....my body's personal way of helping me calm down by thinking its just me causing it.
User avatar #652 to #651 - dammriver ONLINE (12/30/2012) [-]
Go here: You need to login to view this link

Go down to the 'Causes and symptoms' subsection, then look at the paragraph that starts with "Mild attacks, however...". Either that or just read/skim through the whole thing... It seems like it's kinda accurate.
#629 - princesscadence (12/29/2012) [-]
Hello, how are you today?
#630 to #629 - dammriver ONLINE (12/29/2012) [-]
I'm pretty good, how are you?
#631 to #630 - princesscadence (12/29/2012) [-]
Good....and glad I remember I have so many alts..

have to upload a private picture and I have one that is almost unknown to anyone. So it will be perfect.


Just have a slight headache today is all and liked the new episode
#632 to #631 - dammriver ONLINE (12/29/2012) [-]
I haven't seen the new episode yet...

Why do you need to upload a private picture?

And how many alts do you have? I only have one, and the name is silentguardian...
#633 to #632 - princesscadence (12/29/2012) [-]
Private picture for Cupcakes....


and I have about 6-7 alts. Just in case something goes wrong.
#634 to #633 - dammriver ONLINE (12/29/2012) [-]
Ah.

Not a bad idea... It's always good to have a backup plan.

Anything that you want to talk about?
#635 to #634 - princesscadence (12/29/2012) [-]
Not that I can think of....gonna go into TF2 but still be here using the web browser.....just wont upload pictures.
#636 to #635 - dammriver ONLINE (12/29/2012) [-]
Alright...

Have fun!
#589 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
Good morning, how are you?
#610 to #589 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Well, it is relatively still around the holidays... I do agree, though. It seems slower than it used to be...
#611 to #610 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
I happen to know a good amount of users who frequently posted but haven't seen them in PV in ages.....
#612 to #611 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Eh, me too... It would be nice if they at least checked in sometimes, but I don't know.

And we do tend to get many new users, some just don't stay too long...
#613 to #612 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
The problem of that lies with the speed. Most people are used to a faster pace in order to have much more activity and keep them busy. But our users tend to have other things to do and with so few at the moment the thread is incredibly slow and those people really just cant find the motive to stay in PV.

Sure more posts would be covered if we increased the pace but the problem WAS it would cover important posts....but tell me, how many 'Important' posts are actually on PV to begin with?
#614 to #613 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
True... We could go back to the original idea... We get an increase of people, and leave the more important problems to Cadence's place/Canterlot Castle. The problem with more users is that there can be 'too many'. If we get too many users, it tends to make it so there's less of a 'family' (more brotherly/sisterly) feel to it.
#615 to #614 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Yeah, but I grow attached to every user we get...and it pains me to see a new one come and hardly return or know one for a long time and leave us especially with what few we really have at the moment.

Each user we get has my attention and whatever aid I can offer with ANY problem they have whether it be on FJ or IRL.
#616 to #615 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Same with me, and I try to let them know that...

The problem is: how we are going to get the influx of users?
#617 to #616 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Spread the word a bit but not make it too obvious.

Have Pansy or someone else train the guard to be in top condition so that the title of Guard still holds its name around here. This thread is nice but it needs to have a backbone to it.

Increase activity on posts as much as we can.

Keep the rules enforced and keep the users friendly to one another and keep conversations going.
#618 to #617 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
It will still take time... It could work, though.
#619 to #618 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
That it will....but we NEED to change something. in order to grow and the most common thing mentioned by new visitors is the slow speed is too hard to get used to. We need more active users and active posts/replies to keep people occupied while they are here and to add more variety to the chat in general.
#620 to #619 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Could ask PV to post more about whatever they want (as long as it follows the rules).
#621 to #620 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Here's an idea:

We keep this group of users close since we grew here together and every user here can talk to each other as a group on Canterlot. Ponyville will become a general thread for all users new and old.
#622 to #621 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
That's good, too. I think it would be kinda hard to pull this group apart, though...
#623 to #622 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
I will see to it that no matter what happens this group will stay together.
I will see to it that no matter what happens this group will stay together.
#624 to #623 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Shouldn't be too hard to do... Everyone is so close-knit... I think it's amazing...
#625 to #624 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Yeah...sadly there are things that no matter how hard I try I can never get over them. My mind is like a photo album....so many great friends in the past....so many who probably don't remember a thing about me.....I still hope they are doing fine.
#626 to #625 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Ah, I know that feel... Many times have I looked back and wished that I could go back, or at least see some of the people that I knew again... A lot of memories :/

I try to not let it get me [too] down, though. It's fun to reflect, but it can be depressing...
#627 to #626 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Wanna know the WORST feeling for me....finally meeting someone who can understand my interests and not managing to be on good terms with them as a good friend.
#628 to #627 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Yeah, that's another thing. Either not being on good terms, or having them just not care... That's happened with me a couple times...
#590 to #589 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
I'm pretty good, how are you?
#591 to #590 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
Still doing great, got some sleep but wasn't a really good dream....all I'm gonna say is I hate spiders even more now.
#592 to #591 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
That's good. Speaking of dreams, this is a pretty interesting site: www.dreammoods.com/

I found it a few days ago, after one of my dreams. I don't know if it's all true, but it's pretty interesting.
#593 to #592 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
oh well then that may be interesting to read when I have the time.
#594 to #593 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
If you go to the dream dictionary, you could look up key words (like spiders). It's pretty cool.
#595 to #594 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
Uhhhh....well....just read up on what that dream page said about spiders....and my god it was pretty damn right.....
#596 to #595 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Yeah... It's pretty interesting... I analyzed a complete vivid dream that I had, and it was mostly correct...
#597 to #596 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
I'm currently trying to remember all the dreams I can and its pretty darn accurate.


The spider one though was really surprising though since it happened the first time I got managed to get some sleep after hearing Greatnames sent me the one thing I have been wanting for so long.


How did you find this site anyway?
#598 to #597 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
I actually only searched google for something like "what do my dreams mean?" I found out that it was pretty accurate and I like it now.
#599 to #598 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Well now I like it too....still trying to remember any other dreams I can.
#600 to #599 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
I try to write my dreams down... It's hard because I forget most of the time, but when I remember it works out well...
#601 to #600 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Hello...again.

still doing well?
#602 to #601 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
I am...

Is something wrong?
#603 to #602 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
Just feel conflicted.....

I feel as though I am losing a close friend....and can't shake that feeling.

I haven't had a conversation with him him in awhile.....and when I do talk to him sometimes our conversations end shortly after.
#604 to #603 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
Hmm... Next time you talk to him, you could tell him how you feel... You could tell him that you want to talk/do things (games, just chatting, etc...)
#605 to #604 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
I will...in fact, going to try and get a message ready to send to him tomorrow.

My emotions are just.....conflicting with one another...the appointment and end of the year has me worried cause my parents have kept threatening stuff all month....
#606 to #605 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
I don't think that it will go bad... Try not to let it get you too worried, okay?
#607 to #606 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
I'll try....with finally having something that I have wanted for a long time it shouldn't get me too much.
#608 to #607 - dammriver ONLINE (12/28/2012) [-]
That's good; hopefully it doesn't...

Is that all that you're conflicted about, or is there something else?
#609 to #608 - princesscadence (12/28/2012) [-]
There is something else actually.

Ponyville seems less active than it once used to be....many users who posted frequently have left or are hardly ever around any more. I mean I'm one for having a thread at a decent pace but something about the way it is right now is just.....kinda too slow.


Ponyville may not have speed but it has understanding and a friendly userbase.....just needs more users....we need to find a way to expand that but not make it too big of a notice that we are accepting users.

True that Lunar has a large portion of users on his friends list but keep in mind that most of them are rarely seen here in Ponyville.
#563 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Hello, how are you doing this afternoon?
#564 to #563 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Sorry for the late reply...

I'm pretty good, how are you?
#574 to #564 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
So how was your day?
#575 to #574 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
My day was pretty good. Plus, it's snowing now :3

How was yours?
#576 to #575 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
My day was just great, hoping on getting some sleep tonight.
#577 to #576 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
That's good to hear.

Did you not get a lot of sleep last night?
#578 to #577 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
Nope, was too excited from all the good news and things that happened that day.

Still am pretty happy but I really need to sleep tonight, its not good having not slept for 3 days straight.
#579 to #578 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
Yeah... Well, at least things are going better :3

Should make sleeping easier, too.
#580 to #579 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
I know.....just waiting for that package to show up in a few days.....til then I am just finding something to pass the time.
#581 to #580 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
FJ tends to be pretty good with keeping you occupied... other than that, youtube helps. Plus, researching things can be fun, too.
#582 to #581 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
True....also a good thing is I can be on FJ and inside a Steam game at the same time....my computer still runs perfectly even if I am using the in-game web browser...only downside is its harder to find the picture I want to use.
#583 to #582 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
Well, that's good. There's a lot that you can do on a computer... Surprising, really.
#584 to #583 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
yeah but I like to spend time with the people I like to be around here.
#585 to #584 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
Me too... I've met a lot of really good friends/people here.
#586 to #585 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
I know.

Anything you wanna talk about tonight?
User avatar #587 to #586 - dammriver ONLINE (12/27/2012) [-]
Not really much of anything...

You?
#588 to #587 - princesscadence (12/27/2012) [-]
Not much really.
#565 to #564 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Still doing great, so glad thing took a change for the better when they did.


Also, still trying to figure out what to spend my time on.....thought I might actually spend more time on FJ.
#566 to #565 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
That's good :3

And that's what I do... It's nice, plus you talk to a lot of people
#567 to #566 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
I know....plus it keeps me from wondering what to do at the moment.
#568 to #567 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
True...

Anything that you want to talk about?
#569 to #568 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Not that I can really think of....ears and nose feel kind of stuffy but I think that may just be because of the weather over here.

Glad to see ponyville is showing our newest member respect.
#570 to #569 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Oh, speaking of weather, there might be snow tonight :3

And PV usually shows every member respect, so I wasn't worried
#571 to #570 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Glad to hear its been snowing here quite a bit actually.

Also I knew that PV would respect him. We may not be big but we sure respect everyone's opinions.
#572 to #571 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
We barely got any so far...

And yes, that's why I love it there.
#573 to #572 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Its good that its snowing though its annoying having to shovel it.

plus with cupcakes on the thread, it helps me be more open about diapers too.
#556 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/26/2012) [-]
Hey Dammy.
#557 to #556 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Hey Haunter...

What's up?
#558 to #557 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/26/2012) [-]
Not too much. Had two mini balls of chocolate, a small orange and a small slice of pie, all I've eaten the entire day, so I guess I'm a little hungry.   
   
How are you? Feeling better?

#559 to #558 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Yes, I'm feeling better... I'm a little hungry, too, but better.

How are you?
#560 to #559 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/26/2012) [-]
I'm doing very fine. Need to work the next week, gotta earn da monehs for a new laptop.

#561 to #560 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Haven't been up to much of anything lately... Just been here, for the most part.

You?
#562 to #561 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/26/2012) [-]
Same here, been chatting to a few people, haven't done much. Gotta work for the next week, but that's all really.

#537 to #536 - dammriver ONLINE (12/25/2012) [-]
Hi!

I was actually just going to post a comment on your profile..

How are you?

And Merry Christmas :3
#538 to #537 - princesscadence (12/25/2012) [-]
Feeling MUCH better. MGN sent me the one thing I have been asking for.
User avatar #539 to #538 - dammriver ONLINE (12/25/2012) [-]
Awesome! Along with that, are your ears still well?

And how did your interview go?
#540 to #539 - princesscadence (12/25/2012) [-]
Ears still doing a better....


Interview was moved to Friday hence why i broke down when you weren't here.
#541 to #540 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Well, at least you're happy now...

Is there anything that you want to talk about other than interview-related/bad stuff?
#542 to #541 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Well met someone who's vector work I like and am giving him access to Ponyville, as soon as lunar is there to accept the request.


The only thing I need now is financial assistance for my family which I will ask more about at the next appointment.
#543 to #542 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
That's cool! More vectors in Ponyville :3

And hopefully that goes well, too...
#544 to #543 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Me too...should anything come up I will let you know.

If it be an urgent need of something I will tell lunar and all the guards of it.
#545 to #544 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Alright, but try not to worry about that until Friday.

And that's a good idea.... Let them all know about something important (like that) before it gets to you too much.
#546 to #545 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
I will....and glad everyone I told still treats me the same.


Gotta go eat and just know if my thoughts are correct the next thing will be a huge emergency should it happen....but hopefully it wont.
#547 to #546 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
You are the same person that you were before you told us.

And what kind of emergency are you thinking of?
#548 to #547 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
Forced out of my house...but I will try and get things ready with my friend as a back up. I wont go with what my parents suggest. I'd rather stay with my friend and will notify my counselor of anything they say to do and how it affects me to see if I can get help with that.
#549 to #548 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Well, at least you'll be able to talk it over with your counselor/be prepared if it does happen. Hopefully things will be somewhat stable by then.
#550 to #549 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
I know, for right now I am happy
#551 to #550 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Which is good ^^

Anything else that you want to talk about?
#552 to #551 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
I don't know, anything you wanna talk about? Today was pretty great for me...started out bad then went to possibly one of the best days ever.
#553 to #552 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Eh, not much... Today was good for me, too. Got to see some people that I haven't seen in a while. Tomorrow might be better, though
#554 to #553 - princesscadence (12/26/2012) [-]
I know....feeling much more positive after today....even if my other problems still persist they aren't getting me down like they used to.
#555 to #554 - dammriver ONLINE (12/26/2012) [-]
Awesome!
#535 to #534 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Whenever you get back, just know I am not feeling to good right now.
#506 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Good morning, how are you today?
User avatar #528 to #506 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Well, will it make you happy, or at least happier?

If it will, then I wouldn't classify it as ridiculous...
#529 to #528 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
of course it will make me happier...

But in the eyes of other people it will seem kind of strange.


Right now I feel pretty bad since I didn't have a whole lot to eat yesterday....Mother is doing a whole lot of baking and stuff for Christmas...so hopefully it will be nice.
User avatar #530 to #529 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Have you eaten anything so far today?

There's a lot of baking going on here, too.
#531 to #530 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Yeah eating breakfast right now.....and I can tell in a minute my parents are going to come up and ask me to shovel the driveway.
User avatar #532 to #531 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
We don't have any snow up here :/

I have to go for a little bit, though... See you later...
User avatar #533 to #532 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
See ya
#507 to #506 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
I'm good, how are you?
#508 to #507 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Just got up...so pretty tired.
#509 to #508 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
So, is anything going on right now?
#510 to #509 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
No not really, still have some time before anything actually starts happening.
#511 to #510 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
What time is your appointment?
#512 to #511 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
2 PM...so i have about 6 hours still.
#513 to #512 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Ah, well I think it will go well.
#515 to #514 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Just try to stay positive...
#516 to #515 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
I can try, but its been hard to stay positive when nothing has been going the right way lately.
#517 to #516 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Well, hopefully you'll feel a bit more positive after the appointment today...
#518 to #517 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Unless I get told that I still wont be able to get an income for quite some time...then it will be bad.
#519 to #518 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Hopefully they don't say that...
#521 to #519 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Going to go take a shower....if you haven't gotten a reply from someone who you sent a message to, try to talk to them about it. I will be back soon
#522 to #521 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Alright... I got one reply from Pansy, and he doesn't have it, but he is wondering why you need money....
#523 to #522 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Just tell him its private....and I've told enough people as it is and the next person whom I want to tell is a person who can actually get it for me.
#524 to #523 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Ok... Why not ask PV? You wouldn't have to say why, unless someone could...
#525 to #524 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
I'll wait til after the appointment.

Plus its just hard for me to ask for anything from someone.
#526 to #525 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
*hugs*

Alright...
#527 to #526 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Its just not who I normally am to ask for something....especially something so ridiculous....for a ridiculous reason.....
#520 to #519 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Can only hope...since I just have a feeling it still wont be awhile before I get any source of income
#504 - robskul (12/24/2012) [-]
hhhapppy holidays river :D
#505 to #504 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Happy holidays!
#447 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
morning, how are you today?
#499 to #447 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Well, even if it was just something related to the season... Like snow or something, and a new song with a few/all of the [at least] mane six. Plus, this season, we haven't really seen much of Fluttershy, or Rarity... We've seen some Twilight, but not much Spike, either.
#500 to #499 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
fun fact....Rarity hasn't had an episode all year.
User avatar #501 to #500 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
They should have more episodes of them all together. And with Rarity/Fluttershy.
#502 to #501 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Yeah...I'm gonna try and get some sleep now. If you can try to talk to the people you sent messages to tomorrow morning. If none of them will help then I will see what I can do.
#503 to #502 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Okay... Sleep well, and if for some reason I don't talk to you before your meeting, good luck :3
#468 to #447 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, even if it was just a 'for now' solution... I don't know what, but something might work...
#479 to #468 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Im back...had an eye migraine not too long ago so I feel a bit sick and my eyes and head hurt.


Did you talk to people while I was away?
#480 to #479 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Those are never fun :/

I sent a message to Lunar, but didn't get a reply yet... I've been thinking of who else I should talk to... I'm thinking way too much into how I should choose people to ask...
#481 to #480 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Ok.....gotta lie down for a bit my head really hurts right now to be in front of a computer screen. Gonna get some medicine when I go to eat dinner then take a shower afterwords.


If your having any trouble just ask anyone in the guard...I believe they have served under me long enough to not reveal any embarrassing information about me. They have a pretty good idea of the person I am.
User avatar #482 to #481 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Okay

*hugs*

feel better soon.
#484 to #482 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
I'm back...head still kinda hurts.....were you able to talk to anyone?
#485 to #484 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Nobody that I sent a message to replied as of yet...

I'm going to go for a little bit, though... I should be back in an hour or two...
#486 to #485 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
ok..let me know when you come back and hopefully they reply
#487 to #486 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
*hugs*

I'm back... They still didn't respond...
#488 to #487 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
have you tried leaving a message on their profiles saying you left a message....or have they been offline or away the whole time?
#489 to #488 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
I haven't, yet... Two of them have been offline for the whole time. The others... Well, I'll leave the comment.

How are you?
#490 to #489 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Still down a bit...but my migraine seems to have killed my emotions again because all I feel is sick a bit.
#491 to #490 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
Alright...

Also, before I post the comments, what if you posted a comment on Ponyville (not specifying anything, but) asking if anyone has an extra $35-40?
#492 to #491 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
I will....after we hear back from the people we sent messages to.....would be pointless if one of the people we sent a message to agrees.
I will....after we hear back from the people we sent messages to.....would be pointless if one of the people we sent a message to agrees.
#493 to #492 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
True...
#494 to #493 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Yeah...would be kind of odd.

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and my appointment....hope it goes well or we at least get a good reply back from someone.
#495 to #494 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
I think it'll go well... Even if we don't get a good reply...

Other than this, is there anything that you want to talk about?
#496 to #495 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
Not that I can think of.....
#497 to #496 - dammriver ONLINE (12/24/2012) [-]
... In relation to MLP... Are we supposed to get a holiday or seasonal episode?
#498 to #497 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
I dont think so this year....because it would be hard to come up with another good Christmas theme episode.
User avatar #483 to #482 - princesscadence (12/24/2012) [-]
If you need a list of the guard dont be afraid to ask in ponyville.

See ya....
#469 to #468 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Sorry but there isn't anything I can think of that will work....
#470 to #469 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well... Is there anything that you want to talk about...?
#471 to #470 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
I cant think of anything to talk about...but have nothing else to do.....I fix one problem and another thing shows up that affects me almost as much....and now my head is starting to hurt a bit....just great.
#472 to #471 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Is your brother awake yet?

Also, just... try to relax your mind a little bit...
#473 to #472 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Surprisingly no, he still isn't awake. Its almost 1 PM...

and I keep trying that but it just keeps coming back after a few minutes.


#474 to #473 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, hopefully your mind won't stay on that topic for too long...
#475 to #474 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
I know.....I'm gonna go for a bit. Do me a favor and see if you can find anyone in Ponyville that you can trust to find out if anyone will at least send me this one thing to make life a bit happier than it is right now.....cause if I get some news tomorrow stating that I still wont be able to make an income for a quite a while I think I am going to lose it again...
User avatar #476 to #475 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
I'll look around... Just someone trustworthy that could get it?
#477 to #476 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Yeah....someone whom we can trust and who will be willing to get it.

I will provide additional information should the need for it come up.
User avatar #478 to #477 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Okay... I'll try...
#448 to #447 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Morning... I'm in a bit of a feely mood, but other than that, I'm starting to feel better.

How are you?
#449 to #448 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Eh, still feeling a bit down this morning.
#450 to #449 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Any particular reason why?
#451 to #450 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, yeah....but its highly unlikely to be resolved before I get a job and that is still going to take awhile to get.
The reason for that is I dont think anyone I know here will order me something so ridiculous and a bit high priced.


The only person I can recall who ever did order something for someone they haven't met is me for buying one of my thread users a T-shirt from welovefine.com that cost me $50
#452 to #451 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
What is it?

And that was nice of you :3
#453 to #452 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
kind of embarrassing so I will send to you in a private message explaining everything after I get breakfast and take a shower.


and I know...felt like giving a random user something nice since I was in a generous mood that day.
#454 to #453 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Alright, talk to you then.
#455 to #454 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
ok I'm back for awhile.
#456 to #455 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
How are you?
#457 to #456 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Still feeling the same...

Waiting on my brother to get up so we can hopefully play something together....he has a habit of sleeping in.

Still have an appointment tomorrow on Christmas Eve of all days...hopefully it will go well and not take too long.
#458 to #457 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
With the appointment, aren't you already guaranteed the assistance?

And that's cool, anything in particular that you play?

Sorry if my next few replies are late
#459 to #458 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, this next appointment is focusing on paid internships and which ones I qualify for.

Usually some TF2 and a few games but usually run out of things to do pretty fast.
#460 to #459 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, you did good on the test, right?
#461 to #460 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
I guess....didn't exactly nail all of it just most of it. Still bombed horribly in a couple areas.

Right now my emotions are starting to confuse me.


God dammit why must my desire for one thing be affecting me so much recently....its starting to show up everywhere I go now. Why must life taunt me like this
#462 to #461 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, I think it'll go fine.

And life is a cruel mistress... I think I know how you feel, though... With me, it's kinda stupid, but it's my desire to become a police officer... It's sometimes the only thing that I can think about, and that shows up everywhere :/
#463 to #462 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Yeah...for me I have no idea why its beginning to affect me so much recently. Usually like it is right now it makes me extremely depressed or at least devoid of any feeling....I try to change that but nothing works. Right now I don't feel like doing ANYTHING....not sure how long it will stay this way...possibly a few minutes or hours.
#464 to #463 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well, hopefully not too long... Have you tried going for walks or something like that? It [sometimes] works for me, but I go at around 8 or 9 at night... It just helps to clear your mind.
#465 to #464 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Tried, my mind just cant stop thinking about everything.


I fix my ears and now this happens the day right AFTER telling someone about it.....what are the odds....its improbable.
User avatar #466 to #465 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Is there anything that could possibly take your mind off of it for a while? Watching a movie, listening to music, talking about something else, or anything?
#467 to #466 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Not really seeing as how its just going to come back over night regardless.
User avatar #425 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Hello
#446 to #425 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Ice cream assault :3

Okay, talk to you later.
User avatar #426 to #425 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Hey

How are you?
User avatar #427 to #426 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
doing good....decided to try and clean my ear....fixed it a bit but feels funny now
User avatar #428 to #427 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Was it bothering you earlier, or did you just want to clean it?
User avatar #429 to #428 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
it was bothering me a bit....now it feels funny and still bothering me
User avatar #430 to #429 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
How does it feel funny? Like something is blocking it, or what?
User avatar #431 to #430 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
still sounds like its not getting a whole lot of sound like it should
User avatar #432 to #431 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
So, it's like wax buildup, or are you not sure?
User avatar #433 to #432 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Its that I'm sure of it...but cant get it professionally cleaned without the money to pay for it myself. I gotta go for a bit but I will talk to you as soon as I am free to again
User avatar #434 to #433 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Okay, talk to you soon...
#435 to #434 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Im back for a few more minutes
#436 to #435 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Sorry for the late reply... I was writing out a dream that I had...

Is there anything that you would like to talk about?
#437 to #436 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
ears are bothering me less now.

Going to watch a movie with my parents later tonight and loved the new episode.

how are things with you?
#438 to #437 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
That's good... have you tried any OTC ear cleaners? Not sure how well they'd work, but it's worth a shot...

That's cool! What movie is it?

I still haven't seen the new episode, yet... I'll end up watching it later.

Things are good with me... I'm sick, but hoping that I'll get better soon.
#439 to #438 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
going to watch Total Recall.

I haven't tried those...all I have been using is a paper clip unwinded due to its small size...works like a charm at times.
#440 to #439 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Tell me how it was when you get back :3

It's some kind of ear drops... They range in price starting at around $6... The paperclip idea could damage your ear more, fairly easily... Just... be careful...
#441 to #440 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
It wont be some time before I have to leave....

and I know the precautions and am very cautious. Ear drops I have tried before but they end up making it worse since the purpose of them, or at least the ones we own right now, is primarily to make the wax softer so its easier to remove....but in the process it collects them together forming a perfect seal around my ear canal making me deaf for the time being and has so multiple times.
#442 to #441 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
Well... the infomercial (like most) is pretty stupid, but how about something like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Htbo1yW6qeU ?
#443 to #442 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
How was I not aware of this? It seems so much similar and easier than most cleaning methods I have been through....manual and water cleaning. Manually hurts like a bitch and the water one its loud and will cause me problems.
#444 to #443 - dammriver ONLINE (12/23/2012) [-]
This just came out recently, I believe... Do you think something like that would help?
#445 to #444 - princesscadence (12/23/2012) [-]
Probably....if it doesn't have any catches to it but what could there possibly be....


anyway, going to take a shower then watch the movie with my parents.
#404 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Hello, how are you doing tonight.
#405 to #404 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Actually, I'm doing better... It's weird how I got myself happy...

How are you?
#406 to #405 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Doing good, just a bit lonely considering I am still searching for someone with my interests...its hard really since its kind of embarrassing for me to talk about sometimes.

Anyway, have an appointment on Monday hopefully it goes well since it is Christmas eve. Other than that I am just fine.
#407 to #406 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Yeah, I know how you feel... Plus, it can be hard to tell someone how you feel about them...

I'd imagine that it would go well. As you said, it's Christmas eve!

And I talked to my local state PD... They apparently have a lot of volunteers, and a surprising amount from their department alone, considering it's almost a two hour drive. It makes me happy to know that...
#408 to #407 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Glad to hear....my family is just getting a few more holiday things made....such as cookies and stuff.

Today has been great and my ears are not bothering me as much for some reason.
User avatar #409 to #408 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
...And I just remembered that I need to get a few things done... At least they aren't [too] important...

And that's good... Did you do anything different today, or was it just random?
#410 to #409 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Random as usual....
#411 to #410 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Ah, well at least it's better today.

Is there anything that you want to talk about?
#412 to #411 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Sure though my replies may be late....


What do you hope to accomplish later in life?
#413 to #412 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Later in life... Well, I hope to accomplish a few things. First, and most importantly, is my goal to save at least one life before I die, no matter what it takes. Then, I have some others, such as getting my electrical license, and becoming a police officer. Oh, and on top of the 'save at least one life', I also want to help people along the way...

How about you?
#414 to #413 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Using what medical knowledge and engineering knowledge to make a person who is always at peak physical performance. A few enhancements to nerves, mind and heart. It will all improve a bit alone but I will also start the idea of a suit to go with. It will be mostly bullet proof and explosive proof to some extent. It will have a small life support on it to help its wearer survive in tougher situations. It will be used mainly to help protect others and will have a few weapons on it for personal defense.
#415 to #414 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Hmm... that's interesting... So, pretty much a man-made super human?
#416 to #415 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Yep...the few weapons I will give the suit will also be special.

and while it does seem like a great idea I will be sure not to give out any details to the public or other individuals. Because I do not this to be used in war or abused in anyway...this is mainly designed to help others rather than focus on causing harm to others.
#417 to #416 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Well, there are always ideas... Ideas can be found anywhere, and don't be afraid to change your plan, even if you're already halfway through it.

I actually had an idea for a weapon that could potentially be very powerful, if used correctly... It basically would shoot a thundercloud toward something... I can't find the folder where all of my ideas are stored, though.
#422 to #417 - thundercloud (12/22/2012) [-]
you called?
#423 to #422 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Ohai!

Sorry about that...

Something wrong?
#424 to #423 - thundercloud (12/22/2012) [-]
no,nothing wrong
#418 to #417 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Anything else you wanna talk about?
#419 to #418 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
Well, it's kinda random, but have you heard of the band 'Breaking Benjamin'? They are my favorite modern band :3
#420 to #419 - princesscadence (12/22/2012) [-]
Cant say that I have
#421 to #420 - dammriver ONLINE (12/22/2012) [-]
They are kinda on the quiet level... They mainly stay in the rock genres, and a lot of their songs have a lot of meaning, depending on how they're interpreted. If you like songs that fall under that category, you should listen to a few of their songs and see if you like it :3

Other than that, is there anything that you want to talk about? I can't think of much more...
#401 to #380 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
Yeah, me too...

Tomorrow I'm going to try to call my local state PD and ask if they need any help in Newtown over the weekend, as long as nothing else happens...
#402 to #401 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
That's very nice of you. I would do the same if I wasn't in my current situation.
#403 to #402 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
It's just that it's so close to where I live, and I know that the officers are working 24/7 there... Even if it's just to block traffic... Pretty much all that I could donate would be my time...

But yeah... such is life :/
#381 to #380 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
Sorry about the late reply...

Hello, how are you?
User avatar #382 to #381 - princesscadence (12/20/2012) [-]
Doing better I suppose.

Appointment got moved to the 24th.
User avatar #383 to #382 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
What appointment was that?
User avatar #384 to #383 - princesscadence (12/20/2012) [-]
The one for getting my paid internship.

Gonna go for a bit.
User avatar #385 to #384 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
Oh...

And alright... I might not be here when you get back, but I'll be here later.
#387 to #386 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
Hi...

How are you?
#388 to #387 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
Feeling a bit better. Not a lot but still a bit.

Just managed to get some money in my Steam wallet from selling TF2 items and bought a game for myself....so I'm happy for that.
#389 to #388 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
Well, both of those things are good...

What game did you buy?
#390 to #389 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
Star Wars: BattleFront 2....my friend bought it and I thought I could spend some time with him and I really liked the game back when I had it....well, when it was still in working condition that is.
#391 to #390 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
I've never played it, actually...

Is there anything that you want to talk about?
#392 to #391 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
Ummmm....

Not really.....what do you like to do in your spare time?
#393 to #392 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
A few things... Sometimes I draw, listen to music (right now, I'm actually listening to some MLP stuff), come on here, go for walks, [sometimes] play games, but for the most part, I think...

You?
#394 to #393 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
Play games, Listen to some music, talk with my brother, visit here occasionally

At night I just look at a few pictures and look around dating sites with my interests to help keep me in a decent mood since my ears act up during the night.
#395 to #394 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
I actually don't think I give music enough credit... Music is the thing that usually keeps me moderately happy, and sane...

I'm pretty sure I asked before, but is there any particular music that interests you, or something that you prefer?
#396 to #395 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
Not that I know of....I just like whatever sounds good to me.
#397 to #396 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
Same with me, for the most part... it also depends largely on my mood... I like a lot of older musicians, too, such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc...
#398 to #397 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
Well my ears have been pretty good lately...I hope they stay that way.


Not looking forward to everyone talking about the world supposed to be ending tomorrow.....its going to be quite annoying really.
#399 to #398 - dammriver ONLINE (12/21/2012) [-]
I'm just hoping that nothing happens... I don't want there to be a lot of riots, or shootings, or robberies, or anything like that happening... Hopefully it can pass by quickly and calmly... we don't need any more mass-shootings, or even just murders/riots to happen this close to Christmas...
#400 to #399 - princesscadence (12/21/2012) [-]
I know....I would hate to hear any more news about something like that happening.

Ey Dammy! Hey! Down here!
#367 to #366 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
Hi! What's up?
User avatar #368 to #367 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
Not too much, got back from the doctors, they removed the thread from my ear, raw water stopped flowing, so I don't need wool in my ear anymnore, so yay^^ How are you?
User avatar #369 to #368 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
That's good!

And I'm alright...
User avatar #370 to #369 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
Aww gosh dang it, only alright? What bothers you?
User avatar #371 to #370 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
Well, ever since Friday, my mindset hasn't been quite the same... Plus, I'm not feeling too good today.
User avatar #372 to #371 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
Poor Dammy D: *Hugs* Anything you need to get rid off your soul?
User avatar #373 to #372 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
No, not really... I just haven't felt the same since that all happened. I think that it's mainly because I live kinda close, and I know a few of the officers/paramedics that had to respond...
User avatar #374 to #373 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
Since what exactly happened?
User avatar #375 to #374 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
The school shooting... I don't know if you heard about it, but there was a school shooting at an elementary school, which killed 20 kids and 6 adults... It happened in Connecticut, USA...
#376 to #375 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
Someone shoot... 20... That can not be... The world is going to end, yes... through the human race...

Yep... That's what got me in this mood... If you end up wanting more info, ask me...

It's... depressing. Plus, everything that resulted from it...
User avatar #378 to #377 - haunterbrony **User deleted account** (12/20/2012) [-]
It's... hard to hold back those tears. I don't think I want more info... I heard enough. I.. I need a beer. Or ten.
User avatar #379 to #378 - dammriver ONLINE (12/20/2012) [-]
*hugs*

Sorry that I didn't warn you about it being depressing... I've felt like that for the majority of the past 6 days...
#352 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
Going to take a quick shower, then I will come here to talk to you.
#353 to #352 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
Okay... Something bothering you?
#354 to #353 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
I'm back, and no...not much bothering me. Although I fear that all the stress I'm under will cause me problems one day.
#355 to #354 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
Well, I know that stress can be good and bad, depending. Too much can be harmful, and pushing it aside can be bad. So, before anything [severe] happens, if you ever need to rant or vent, I'm here. Just give me a 'heads up' first, if you can.
#356 to #355 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
Sometimes...I just wonder what I am doing with my life...my room is a mess, my body is in poor condition and my mind tends to just run off......

But, I hope to fix all of that someday.....its going to take a long time though.
#357 to #356 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
Oh, so do I... I plan way too much into the future, think of things that could happen, how they could go, and so much more... even for the things that have such a little chance of ever happening. I don't worry about my mind wandering off, though, considering where I 'wander off to' is a "better" reality most of the time.

And yes, time... It will get better, though.
#358 to #357 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
Yeah its really frustrating at times especially when my concentration breaks.

But on the other hand my Immune system seems to have been building up and getting used to being exposed to....well a not so pleasant environment.
#359 to #358 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
Yeah, I know what you mean...

Are you around a lot of sickness, or chemical stuff?
#360 to #359 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
Well....kind of. Parents are sick most of the time and my room probably isn't healthy to be in either but my body has gotten used to it.

At least I'm not like most of the kids in school who someone get sick just about every 3 weeks and cant stomach much if something smells bad.


The only thing really I have gotten that needed medication for was an ear infection and that I knew was going to happen but my parents didn't listen to me and even the doctor understood that I knew exactly what I was saying.
#361 to #360 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
My tolerance of things (smells, sickness, etc...) seems to be pretty high, too.

And at least the doctor understood and gave you the medication needed. I can understand how that situation could be fairly annoying, though.
#362 to #361 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
Especially since I really didn't want to have to go through it....

Cant really say I like how bad I look right now, but.....at least I'm not making big mistakes like a few others.
#363 to #362 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
You know, I love how everyone (that isn't like "us") thinks that it's so bad to spend a lot of time on the computer... Just look at the rest of our generation! Kinda surprising in a lot of ways...
#364 to #363 - princesscadence (12/19/2012) [-]
I know....even though my friends here are not IRL they are still human beings that I cna converse with nonetheless. Plus, I am no where near as social as I am on the computer....and my hand writing sucks to be honest.   
   
At least I'm not the kind of person who gets in way over their head, or overreacts to something small leading to doing something they regret. I'm just doing what I can....sometimes personal matters interfere with my progress on things but that's just who I am.   
   
In fact, I get a lot more information from the computer than I did in my schools. I'm currently reading up on some first aid guides seeing as how I couldn't take the class in school because it filled up before I could be put into it.

#365 to #364 - dammriver ONLINE (12/19/2012) [-]
Yes, they are real people... Not only that, but they are from just about everywhere.

I... tend to take on a lot at once, and get in over my head... The thing about that, though, is that I get very stressed out, but end up getting it done... It's interesting, really.

First aid is always good to know... I actually know a lot about what to do/how to take care of someone until EMT's arrive, and have a CPR card, but I haven't had to use any of it, yet... Probably for the better, lol.

Anyway, I have to get up for school tomorrow, so I should probably go to bed... So, goodnight, and I'll talk to you tomorrow.
#343 to #342 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
Hello.

How are you?
User avatar #344 to #343 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
Doing good for the most part
User avatar #345 to #344 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
That's good...

What's up?
User avatar #346 to #345 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
Not much...still feeling a bit pressured.
User avatar #347 to #346 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
Pressured about what?
#348 to #347 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
THe usual stuff like being pressured to find a job and such.

Plus my friend may have made his life a lot more difficult if he is telling the truth.
User avatar #349 to #348 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
What did he do to make his life a lot more difficult?

And you're getting the help with it, so what's the problem?
#350 to #349 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
My friend is unemployed and still not living on his own yet and he says he may have gotten his girlfriend pregnant.

Its nothing to worry about...if my parents could be patient.
#351 to #350 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
Oh... Well, **** ... Hopefully he didn't, then...
#330 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
Going to take a shower, then I will be back here to talk with you.

#334 to #333 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
Doing good for the most part...no surprise that I still am worried about my ears but not as much right now.


Right now I'm just seeing how ignorant some people are at marketing and other things.
#335 to #334 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
Where are you seeing that? It happens at a lot of places, but which ones are you talking about?
#336 to #335 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
Specifically the gaming industry...   
   
A few of the free-to-play online games still seem to have trouble understand what will get more people to stay with the game and pay for it more.   
   
Planetside 2 for example, its a great game and free-to-play plus its massive, the downside to that game is there is no balance to deal with aircrafts demolishing everyone. Free-to-plays have to spend weeks and possibly months depending on how long the play per day just to buy 1 weapon to help deal with the problem, and even then its not all that useful.   
   
SWTOR, this game just went free-to-play but EVERYTHING is limited. F2P's earn 25% less exp, everything costs more and you sell for less, you cant use titles and can only have 2 characters per account, you also cannot use rest areas or get certain reward items unless you pay monthly. The problem here, is even though people are getting the game's experience, they feel as though they are being cheated out of...just about everything. Even if one pays monthly for the game its still a good sum of money to pay just to enjoy the game.   
   
Most successful game companies I have played in have no content restricted and no limits on the F2P players...however, the people who pay just the better looking clothes, weapons, accessories, etc. through random chance items bought with money....its gambling really.   
   
TF2 for example doens't limit their F2P, only a reasonable inventory space and cannot find hats. Since TF2 went F2P valve saw a massive increase in profit of the store alone because buying keys and uncrating items becomes an addiction.   
   
   
TL:DR Cutting out game mechanics for F2P= not good   
Paid items that give you a chance at rare items + unique looking items for the game = good, so long as they do not make the payer overpowered thus leading to Pay-to-Win territory

A lot of the gaming companies don't listen [much] to their customers, or at least not a large amount of their customers. It seems like it works like that [mainly] for companies that have a very high profit margin.

Ignorance is everywhere, though. From companies to politics, and everywhere in between. It gets pretty annoying, too.

Plus, the games where you can pay to win are very unbalanced, and I think that it actually takes most if the fun out of the game. Kinda like hacking. If you have everything available at your fingertips, and nothing to look forward to, it gets boring.
#338 to #337 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
That and if you make a game F2P they need to understand that there is going to be a majority of free players. Therefore, most of the complaints are coming from them being treated unfairly...well, the reasonable ones anyway.


Ugh...right now I'm not feeling too well....mentally that is.
#339 to #338 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
Whats wrong? Worried, this topic, or something else?
#340 to #339 - princesscadence (12/18/2012) [-]
Its just my ears again....their acting up once again and its breaking my concentration greatly.

I got my results back from the test I took last week, I did well in everything except I bombed the Reading portion of the test. Still was eligible for the help though.
#341 to #340 - dammriver ONLINE (12/18/2012) [-]
Well, at least you'll get help with finding a job... After that, you'll be able to get your ears fixed, so just keep looking forward... It'll get better.
