jeez, it's been a while since i've been on newgrounds, so i'm making a post. it's gonna get kinda stream-of-conscious here, so please forgive me for that.
I can't believe 2015 is almost over, and that Christmas is almost here. what a crazy year this has been!
my return to college (which I elaborate on here and here) is turning out very well so far. I managed a 4.0 this semester! I really really hope I can keep this up! I also mention in one of those links that I've been losing weight, well, I'm glad to say that I'm now down almost 60 pounds. I feel a lot better, but I really need to go clothes shopping soon, because my clothes are starting to look kinda baggy.
2015 has had it's ups and downs, but overall it's been a pretty good year for me. I'm pretty optimistic about 2016 and what it has in store for me.
anyway, that's it for now, hope everyone's having a good holiday season!
has it really been that long since i created this account? holy shit.
you know, i was originally just going add the following text to my previous post, but fuck it, it deserves it's own post
anyway thought I'd just pop by to say that college is going really well so far, going back for a second degree is turning out to be a good decision so far. I'm currently learning how to program in C, and I'm picking it up pretty quickly so far. I also am currently making A's in all my classes, but It's only been a month since school started so I'm hoping I can keep it up!
Also, I've been continuing working at losing weight, I'm now down 35 pounds. I feel quite a bit better as a result, but there's always room for improvement.
Anyway, I've run out of things to say so back to my regularly scheduled inactivity!
so what's been happening to me lately? oh, nothing much, just some big changes in my life.
I mentioned in Asandir's interview with me that I was aspiring to be a high school math teacher, and (at the time of the interview) I worked as a substitute teacher. Well, things aren't that great here in the state of Indiana when it comes to education, not to mention the fact that I've had a tough time trying to get hired on as a full-time teacher. I felt like something had to change. so, I've given up on that dream, and decided to go back to college. Back in April, I was re-admitted to my old college to pursue a second degree. This time, I'll be majoring in Computer Science, with a minor in Computer Engineering. I don't need to do gen-ed again (because I already have a degree), so I should be done in 3 years. I haven't yet decided if I'll go to grad school, or get a job in the field.
this also means that I'm no longer working as a substitute teacher. it was good while it lasted, but I felt like it was time for a change.
among other things, I've been working on losing weight, just doing the usual diet and exercise thing, with some help from an actual nutritionist that my regular doctor referred me to. I gave up pop entirely, (started drinking coffee for my caffene buzz), started watching what I eat, and exercising more. I'm down 13 pounds so far (I've been at this for about 7 weeks, and the CDC reccomends that losing weight at a rate of 1 to 2 pounds a week is the best way to go, so I'm doing good so far).
other than that, not a whole lot's been going on. i'm taking it day by day. and i'll stop now before this post gets too livejournaley (is livejournal even a thing anymore? I don't know, they faded away eons ago)
as far as my activity on here goes, eh.. i'll drop by every now and then, i don't know how active i'll be on here to be honest. but anyway, i'm done typing for now.
EDIT 7/17/2015: Had an appointment with my nutritionist earlier today, I've actually lost 19 pounds since I first saw him on May 29, so I'm doing pretty well here!
EDIT: 5/16/15: I'm back, well, kinda sorta. will make an update post later.
Yeah, I'm pretty much gone from this site. This is the least active I've ever been on here, mainly because real life has gotten in the way plus I've kinda lost interest. I'll probably be back someday (I usually do end up coming back), I just don't know if or when.
Anyway, I just want to say thanks Newgrounds for all the fun you've provided me over the past 10+ years. It's been real. and some of you on the BBS were pretty rad, I'm gonna miss y'all.
this new layout looks good! nice job admins!
EDIT: after browsing for a bit, i realized that i don't really care for the new level icons and i don't like the new auras either
plus, all the greasemonkey scripts i use for the BBS are broken now, bah. i had a greasemonkey script i cobbled together (from another greasemonkey script someone else already made, can't remember who made the one i used as a basis for what i did here at the moment) that highlighted the names of the users i liked in one color, gibbering morons in another color, and all of my accounts in another color in the "Users Online" list at the bottom of the list of topics. i quite liked using that one!
yeah, yeah, first world problems, i know.
ah well, i'll get over it. i'll probably update this post later with more of my impressions as time goes on, in the meantime, i better get around to making a new sig and readying a new profile pic/avatar.
but on a lighter note, i'm liking the new emotions. and still, my impression with the layout is mostly positive.
So, you decided to come to my profile, of all places.
Was it something I said? Did I make you angry? sad? laugh? learn?
Are you one of those guys who likes to click profiles at random?
Well, since you're here, feel free to make a comment, I will usually reply.
or don't, I don't care.
