What a trip.

I haven't logged in in probably at least two years, I somehow totally forgot about BS. I can't believe I remembered my username/password after all this time. I'll probably forget to check on this, and I can see that there will be a very limited cross-section to even see this thread (let alone answer it) but I'd be interested in seeing what everyone's done with their lives - after all, we're quite the eclectic bunch.

I've done quite a bit of growing up. At 25(I'm now 26) I decided to get my shit together and go to school. I'm on track to become an accountant, and I'm on the dean's list so I'm doing pretty good all things considered. I've stopped doing drugs(outside of music festivals), and I'm devoting all of my efforts to getting through school as soon as possible so I can start my career and marry the woman I love (she's in school too, to be a nurse).

What about you?

Also, I invite anybody who would like to to add me on FB. the.sam.perkins is my URL extension.

Good luck! I just finished school again, about two years ago. I've been working steady since then, and saving up for a house(damn expensive up here) I've slowed down on a lot of things, but sped up on others. We'll see where it all ends up

Let's see, let's see . . .

Well, in the interim I've struck upon this weird question of online usernames. I have multiple ones in different places, some more "public" than others, i.e., some with my real identity attached.

By now, how much have I attached to "Rexfelum"? I can't even say anymore. Granted, any weirdo trying to dig out "SUPER PERSONAL SECRETS OF SHAME" would have a difficult time finding anything in old Broken Saints posts. (Yay, you've learned I hold a doctoral degree!)

But I guess the shortest version of a "life update" is this: I've done more stuff than I ever thought I'd do, not all of it terribly interesting. "Where I am now" may vary, as I've already lived in three out of four corners of this nation (and visited the fourth), and I'm only here now for work. Work that, I might add, may easily take me elsewhere again. Still doing new job applications.

I've also moved on to enjoying lots of other online projects and communities. Communities are awesome! Especially when not COMPLETELY infested by idiots.

And sometimes I have precious little time to devote to any of the above. Days really can be short. Ah, well. At least the cats are cute.

No matter how often it happens, I always seem to wind up crawling back to this place.

Things have been... all right, for better or worse? I'm engaged now to a beautiful lady, been trying to see if I can work out a full time writing gig after publishing my first novel.

You know, just skating by making ends meet.

No big d.

Hope everyone else is doing well!

I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area working as a library assistant for Contra Costa County. I still write, when I can. My living situation makes things a bit difficult on that front.

Not even sure where I'm at anymore. I'm working for the same company I've been with for many years now, but the mental energy conducive to writing outside of there has withered to all but nothing. I'm considering moving south, but haven't decided what sort of job to look for down there yet.

On the plus side, I've conquered the drinking problem I had when last I frequented here. And eventually went back and finished getting my expensive piece of paper. Hurray for me!

And that's about it, sadly. Work, karaoke, and sleep have become my days.

I am happy everyone is doing well and that facebook has kept us some what connected.

I have done a lot in the past two years challenging myself ie skydiving, climbing down a waterfall, and realizing that getting out of the cubical barnyard once n awhile isn't so crazy.[/i]

Happy New Year, y'all.

Thought I'd pop in after seeing the BS facebook post with theories about what Raimi and Oran would be doing right now.

I'm really, really happy with my life right now, guys. Since the last time I've been active, I've had some real ups and downs, but right now I'm on a serious up. A few months ago, I started a job that I've absolutely fallen in love with, I spend most of my free time belly dancing at a local studio, and I've been romancing the same rad dude for 5 years now and we're still not sick of each other.

A pretty big chunk of the last few years sucked. I was officially diagnosed with chronic depression. I graduated from college with $15k in debt and moved to Madison, Wisconsin. I got a job in medical tech, but it was absolutely soul crushing. I was regularly having panic attacks from the stress of it, so I quit and wound up accumulating a few more grand in debt.

It's been totally worth it to leave, though, because I've found a career that I absolutely love. Now I'm a QA Tester at an educational video game company, and I work with some of the most interesting people I've ever met. I don't make much money, and are a lot of spreadsheets and repetitive tasks, but it's some of the most rewarding work I've ever done.

Yay! Aside from all the bad parts. But seriously, getting involved in something creative that makes people happy is fantastic. If you've been seeing my wife's posts on Facebook, you know about my own efforts in that direction, and I'd love to get involved in even more.

Ah, but those job applications I mentioned above? Yeah, precious few of them have turned up any leads. So I'm plugging along with what I have and I continue to keep looking. Lemme know if your own company needs more people like you!

I can't change my profile picture, and I've lost a bunch of weight. I had my 10 year high school reunion this past fall and I weighed about 260lbs. My lowest weight in high school was about 290-300. I graduated at 350 and had topped out near 400.
Otherwise, still in Wisconsin. Still working a dead end job at OfficeMax, now part of Office Depot Incorporated, soon to be part of Staples.
Working on paying down the last of my debt. Got a new car. Working on my backlog of anime to watch. Probably gonna re-watch BS this year again.
I just noticed its been almost 10 years since I joined this forum. I just turned 29 two days ago, and thinking back to how I'm hardly the same person I was when I first came here. I'd say I've learned a lot and become a better person overall. I hope the next 10 years will be much the same. Continued learning, self improvement, and bettering the lives of others as much as I possibly can.
Oddly enough, I got the urge to come back here from a thread on 4chan of all places. Brought back the memories of college, gaiaonline, newgrounds and of course BS.
I have to say, I do appreciated everything I learned here. A lot of the topics I posted in were rather heated, but it managed to force me out of my comfort zone. I had to think more critically about things I had taken as fact from my upbringing. Debating over topics with people who had different viewpoints helped me to understand how small minded I was and to be more open to other opinions.
I'll probably drop in again, like I have in the past when I feel the itch. Until then, I wish you all the best in whatever life may throw your way.

Odd, I remember posting here in response. Ah well. Technical difficulties, please stand by . . .

So I'm still here, though I suspect you are more "ancient" than I was, at least in the now-many-years-removed measure of people following Broken Saints. Yup.

Somewhat odd, one might say, the mix of places I check for updates and news. Not that I expect plenty to appear on this forum; just that I check it.

So new job, better growth than the last, but less flexibility. also the commute sucks, but better pay, so it all works out. Single again, but thats not anything to write home about

I'm in Chiapas, sitting in a small, wooden chair at the hostel I'll be staying a few more nights at. In a few minutes, I'm going to go eat some pizza.

That answers your question, right?

I'm currently back in university, studying the dark arts of finance and the law. Since last posting here...I don't know, five years ago?, I finished my undergraduate degree, worked in professional politics for awhile, and found a fabulous partner.

I also moved across a continent, leaving the fabled Coast City behind for the great, big, populace interior.

It is all, in sum, a great big change.

The especially sad thing is that I can barely remember the names and details of some of the people who posted in this here thread. My memories of this place have already begun to fade, especially of its heyday 12 years ago. The benefit concerts, the trips, the forum drama, the relationships begun and ended here. I can only remember the bits and pieces. And this imperfect memorial only goes back so far -- and now, instead, possesses mere memories of memories.

That's a sad thing.

I can't even believe this place is still here....

In the LA area (yet again), being a dad, staying a little more grounded than I used to be. But, I must admit, I do miss it. We were amazing, weren't we?
