All About julian_jr
Been quite a while since I've been around. Yesterday by random chance I decided to stop by to check up on the site and while checking things I out I noticed I was one day off from my six year anniversary on gamespot! Well today's that day, its now been six years since I created my account on gamespot.
So you may be wondering what I've been up to? Well first, I recently built my first ever pc and have switched to being purely a PC gamer. Below are the main specs of my PC for those curious:
-2GB GTX 670
-two Samsung 830 256GB in raid 0
-i7-3770 Ivy Bridge
As I mentioned earlier, I've been doing PC gaming now. At the moment I'm playing Battlefield 3 and Guild Wars 2. My Origin name is Valrok213 and my main character's name in GW2 is Francis Cooke if you're interested in adding me on either game. I'll probably get more games in the future but for now I'm content with the two that I've mentioned.
Aside from gaming, I now work as a co-op student for a company. This current semester I am working full time instead of taking classes at school. So far I've enjoyed it since I'm making a decent amount of income and don't have the stress of school for this current semester.
Well that's about it on what all I've been up to that stands out... I don't usually get on gamespot anymore but I always end up coming back randomly to check on how everyone is! It's good seeing familiar names still around the site!
28Jan 12This account is now five years old. It's amazing how fast time flies, I remember when I created this account back in the day I was still in high school in either my freshman or sophomore year of high school. Five years later I'm in my second year of college, and a lot has changed. So here's some of the things that I remember from when I first started, you can compare them to how Gamespot is today:
-Unions being relatively popular still and being glitch free when I originally started. (note: levels recently started again)
-The old layout from 2007, which displayed a much better representation of your level as well as emblems being called just "Emblems" rather than achievements today. Also, all of them were shown at once.
-Level 40 being considered a really high level.
-Reaching 10,000 posts was considered quite the feat.
-Level 20 was the toughest level around for the most part.
-All the older admins and mods who have left the site.
-How to Gamespot was called "Welcome Newbies"
-The Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3 were still relatively new consoles.
There's more things, but those are things that I could think of at this moment that stuck out from back when I originally started in Gamespot. There's been a lot of users that I've known who have left this site as well.
Now as for me, I've been extremely busy lately with school. This semester has been extremely difficult so far, with none of the classes being considered easy, although for now things are going well. I'm now getting into my major and notice the same people in all of my classes each semester, which I find to be pretty cool. Also, I've signed my first ever lease a week ago and have my own apartment for the following school year.
Well that's enough for now, here's to another five years in Gamespot!
9Jan 12I just noticed that I reached level 50!
Ok, now onto more important matters, school starts back up for me this Wednesday. I think I'll be heading back to campus tonight, since I have a few things I'd like to do before classes start back up. I'm hoping that this semester will be as successful as the previous one, however I'm also noting that this may be the biggest test I've had yet in college with my classes being the following:
Design of Logic Circuits
Intro to Software Engineering
This will be the first time that I haven't had any general education courses, and look forward to being able to focus completely on my major.
