Wow it certainly has been a while. Thank my poor gaming skills for my reappearance. I got stuck and was looking up a game guide when I decided to stop in and see how everything's going around GS. It seems to be a pretty sad state of affairs. Even more departures and changes from what I can see.
More and more people are just cutting loose, and they just can't be replaced. I really think the golden age is over.
But just some quick updates on my life.
Started Year 11 at school this year, and man is it hard work. I've taken up 5 TEE subjects (HSC for anyone in the eastern states, and if you're not from australia, well, I don't know) Physics, Chemistry, Maths 3A, Maths Specialist and the compulsory English. I'm also doing a Contemporary Music course which is great :D
Gaming is virtually non-existant in my life now, I just don't have the time or the interest any more. Sigh.
Been writing A LOT, songs and poetry and whatnot, and getting some tracks recorded with my sitser.
Other than that, this year has been a tumultuous one for me. For a few years now, I have been struggling with depression, and things were going pretty badly for me. All of it came to a head in February this year when I was taking a night time walk with some friends. I tried to drown myself at the beach. Thankfully they got me to come back out of the water. Since then I've found help and am taking a course of medication. Had some couselling sessions but found it didn't really help much and gave up. Everything is so much better now though, I'm much much happier, and I'm okay with who I am. Life is beginning to make a lot more sense.
Now while I might not be staying here at Gamespot long, I would very much like to catch up with any old friends, so if you're around and want to chat, PM me. Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org If any of you have msn you can also add me at this address
Or add me on myspace www.myspace.com/hungryjacks92

Well, that's all for now I guess...
Also, I realise I never did a farewell blog, so I guess this is it. To all of you still out there, goodnight and goodbye.
