Hey everyone if you're reading this at all.  If anyone wants to get in touch, even if only to say hi, please do.  My steam is neonrideraryeh, I'm on that all the time I'm online.  I'm not really on skype anymore.  You could find me on discord sometimes if you want to add me, same username there too on everything.  Also on reddit if anyone wants to PM since I often don't remember to show up on this forum.  I don't check it too often and still figuring out how it works, but I have twitter as well, also a facebook but again not on it often.
Discord ID numbers?

I'm struggling with what I want to go to school for. Part of me says Auto tech and be a mechanic but that shit is so expensive cuz of the tools and shit. Another part says plumber cuz it's easy to get into. I dunno. Life is hard ;-;

When I was in school for diesel tech a few of us received cards for 50% off our first order at Sears.  I applied for a Sears credit card and bought the largest Craftsmen set they had (ratchets, sockets, wrenches/ratcheting wrenches, various other tools, literally the works) with no interest rates, perhaps wherever you go may have the same sort of deal.  Their lowest accepted payment is like $25 a month.  Specialty tools you just buy as you need, and borrow from coworkers if you're desperate.  Go on craigslist and buy a decent cabinet, and go to Harbor Freight for the rest.  I know everyone really bags on their tools, but if you take care of them they'll last.. and even if they don't, most of their stuff has a lifetime warranty.  I bought a DA, die grinder, air hammer and a few other air tools from them a few years ago and they all still work like new.  I'd also highly suggest buying things like impact sockets and 1"+ wrenches from them.  Their prices are impossible to beat, especially when you're just starting out.

And it really goes without saying, but stay away from the Snap-On and Mac tool trucks your first couple of years on the job.  You might feel like a badass with the top-tier tools, but what you're paying for them really isn't worth it yet.

Make a personal list of the pros and cons of each. Decide based on that.
Which decision do you think you'll be happier with say, 5 years down the line?

Time for my own update.

Things are not looking well.
I'm 24 now.
And all the things that I had going for me, are gone.
My girlfriend left me 7 months ago.
I was an intern at Electronic Arts for the second time, but they told me they wouldn't hire me back.
Learned that my grandpa has had untreated prostate cancer for two years.
Financially and health-wise, my family isn't doing great.
I fell in a depression and while I'm meeting with a psychologist, my family doctor and two career advisors, I don't feel like trying anymore.
Everything I try fails miserably and I can't focus on anything.
Being at the same school as my ex is too hard for me.
I'm leaving the city at the end of April, going to live with my cancer grandpa for 4 months.
It's ironic. I was gonna graduate by the end of August. But I don't want to anymore.
I don't know where to go. I don't want to go anywhere.
Right now my only focus is keeping active the part of me that still wants to be alive. And it's getting really tough.
Got my antidepressant prescription two weeks ago, so chemically I'm working on it.
Plus all the other daily exercises I'm doing.
But dreaming every night that I'm back with the woman who lit up my world... most days I'd rather not wake up.
I used to be such a success story... it's a shame that I'm where I am now. Wasted potential.
Oh well.

Sorry to be such a downer.
I like you guys.
Godspeed.
I'm sorry about that Rosim.
I hope your Grandpa recovers and your family improves in terms of health and finances.
Make the best of your time with your Grandpa so you have no regrets.
Failure happens to everyone, but don't let it define you. Failure is something you do, not something you are.
You didn't succeed because of your girlfriend. You succeeded because you worked hard.
And while it sucks that someone who was clearly very dear to you left your life, life goes on.
Try to appreciate what you do have. I know that's way easier said than done. I'm not saying to ignore
all the bad. You should accept the bad as part of reality. I'm just saying to try to appreciate the good too.
What you appreciate could be anything and something I can't answer for someone else.
But it could even be basic shit like food, water, sunlight, or a nice breeze, as silly as that sounds.
Sorry if I sound preachy. Take it as you will and form your own conclusions.
Wishing the best for you dude.

Are we doin' life updates in here for the people that barely show up anymore? Sign me the heck up, lads.

In my senior year of high school currently, just finishing everything up. I've been accepted to several different universities and plan on going to one on the other side of the state around August to pursue computer science and graphic design. Pretty sweet deal, in all honesty.

Played through the main story of Pokemon Moon, but that's about it. It was honestly better than Alpha Sapphire, which I couldn't even get past the third gym in. It was just too boring for me, sadly. Pokemon just hasn't been as hooking for me in the most recent editions, and I feel like being on this website when the previous games game out helped me stay interested in them. Instead of Pokemon, I've spent more of my time on art and actually talking to people. Got into professional wrestling too, because my interests always seem to gravitate towards the less feminine ones. That's just how it goes, I guess?

I've definitely been a lot more confident as a human being in the past few months, though. Finally separated myself from my ex girlfriend (which I don't know if I even mentioned here: she broke up with me back in 2014 or something) and went through a couple abusive relationships, one emotional and the other a bit more uncomfortable. Only surrounding myself with people that actually care about me, and thankfully my mental health has gotten a lot better. Still have issues with depression, anxiety, and god knows what else wrong with me, but long gone are the weeks where I would spend every night trying to die. I'm sorry for being such a piece of shit back in the day about all of that, by the way. I overreacted over a lot of shit back then and I probably caused a lot of annoyance or distress with the stuff I said sometimes.

I'm 18 now (don't look like a piece of shit anymore nowadays http://tinypic.com/r/15ea0ew/9 ), and holy shit it's actually kind of crazy to think I joined this forum at age 12, what with half of the things I was saying. That being said, I absolutely don't regret it. Being on here, for as short as it was, was one of the best things that I was a part of. You all were so nice to me and I seriously can't thank you enough. This website formed me into the sarcastic asshole I am now and I really can't thank y'all enough. Thanks for dealing with me, friends. I still care about you all so much, believe me.

Hey, if possible, we should get back in touch. I really valued your friendship.
