    Hey Ben, you're not alone, man. Ms. Rubes will be 21 in 6 days!!!! Cash donations to the Lyndsey Rocks Foundation will be accepted, though blank checks are preferable.:D

    Seriously, my 21st birthday is the 16th and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be home by myself since Marcus has to work and so does my mom. If anyone could arrange for Marcus to come see me as a birthday present, I will love you forever and ever.....

    Taco, that's your cue....^_^


    I have been seriously thinking in the last few days do I want to give up videogames altogether or not. I'm just not feeling the competitive spirit that much anymore and considering I am just absolutely sick of MvC2 and there isn't much else that anyone is playing, I'm thinking of just not playing anymore. I don't even have regular comp since Marcus is always playing, we don't have a decent arcade near by ( it's a 2 hour drive to a decent one), and I can't really practice and learn more like I should. I'm thinking I should stick with it but I don't know.

    I can play other games besides MvC2 a hell of a lot better, but there just isn't anyone to play. How I wish that I lived in a better city somewhere. Alot of my friends that I've talked to both male and female say I should stick it out and just keep working on it because I've got the potential and I'm a decent player. I don't know, it's just that I'm tired and burn out.

    And for the record, I'm not even stressing about the bullshit that is people running their mouths. I'm secure in my abilities and my knowledge of the games that I play. I feel like, as long as I've been playing and as much as I strive to be a good sport about winning and losing, I think I'm pretty well known for being a good player just based on my attitude. I don't think anyone can ever say that I'm foul with my games.

    So ladies some hardcore advice please. I need some help in deciding the path I should take. Thanks.

    Take care!

    uhhh... o_o *fumbles around some numbers to call* >_>

    Ronin: me = crazy. known fact in girl thread. I think Phil was right.

    anyways, I started summer school today.. MAN my prof had to have been an elementary teacher. she made us write our name and explain it so everyone else can learn it.

    "Hi. my name is Jeanatte. its a french name. means generous. I don't know who named me but the nurse that wrote it down spelled it wrong (dumb bitch) hence the 'a' and not an 'e.' I don't like my name cuz its waaaaay too formal and as you can tell, I'm not. you can call me Jen but only 2 people can call me Jenny or Jenna and sadly none of you are those 2 people. thank you"

    that's a tough one Rubes. well, I know not everyone is up and willing to move to a town with a decent arcade as their sole reason for relocating. "recruiting" others in your area might help re-ignite that competitive spirit in you. it'll give you a chance to practice with others as well as teach & learn.

    we all have to prioritize our time and effort in everything, including gaming. some weeks games are at the top of the list, some weeks they're no where to be found on that list. If you can make the time each week to play, then I encourage you to do so. Don't just quit simply because you're the only person playing in your town. Getting burned out on a game is normal. By all means play other games too, but go back to MvC2 after a while and see if you're still tired of it or not.

    if you can make it to some of the larger tourneys this summer, even as a spectator, this might also give you some encouragement to keep playing.

    ultimately it's your decision to stick with it or not. and I'd hate to see anyone quit playing altogether. :(

    Sakura- some places wont let you rent even if youre 18. You have to have records of good credit and parental permission/cosign, etc,etc....I know. It sucks. Your supposed to be an adult and pay taxes and work and be a good member of society - and you cant even fucking drink or rent a car!

    Rubes - hon, I completely understand. I everyone hits a wall at some time or another. Just give it a break for a while, and come back to it. Maybe you need to find a disciple to the game, and focus on that for a while. If I lived near you, Id volunteer, but I think Im going to wait for the next game to start on like SakuraF once suggested.

    Weeks - dont look smug! I'll perform an act of violence against you!!!

    Tacochan - your full name is gorgeous! It sounds like it should be a name in Tank Girl or something (maybe cause it kinda sounds like "Jet"?) Anarchy driven super heroines of the world UNITE!!
    I hated my name when I was younger. People would mispronounce it all the time or tell me they were expected an exotic tall african girl instead of me. I think Ive kinda grown into it. Maybe they dont get someone exotic, but they do get someone a little odd. The names gotten more popular because people in the Netherlands and Sweden and Germany have been naming their daughters (and cats) "Misha", but people still always say it "Mis-sa" instead of "Mee-sha" ...oh well. Its cute though, my boyf's neice cant say my full name so she's yell "SHA! SHA!! COME HEEEEERRRREEEE!!! BYE BYE!! I LOVE YOU!!!"

    She's so cute, its criminal.

    Jeanatte is a fucking dope name, even if it is spelled wrong. You try intimidating people with a name like "Phil"....why do you think I chose such a dark alias to go by in the SF community? My name doesn't fit me at all IRL.

    WHAT UP DOGS!!!

    Just thought I would come and drop a line in the new female thread since I posted in the other one sometimes. HEH.

    Rubes-I understand what you are going through with all of the questioning games and what not but I can tell you that is a decision that you are gonna have to make on your own because if someone else helps make it and you end up regretting the decision it could affect your relationship with that person mainly for the fact that you are regretting what you did and don't want to blame yourself so you try to pass the blame off on someone else. Besides You cant stop playing MVC2. That game is mad fun. Come to our next tournament and I guarantee you will not be feeling like this anymore. You will have a blast playing MVC2 and probably Super Turbo and XVSF. So the point I am making is you have to really analyze your take on this and decide for yourself because it is you and your life not ours.IMO

    PEACE OUT
    Kevin

    AkA: Big Sent

    And anyone else that wants to come in the female thread and start flaming know that from here on I am keeping watch on this thread and will personally fly to each and everyone of you's house and smack you up just because I can.

    its not trendy clothes its just odd. if you want trendy go look at Non-No. that's basic trendy style. stuff like FRUiTS, Kera, Egg, and Cutie are for the more experimental types. FRUiTS is the colaboration on all types. Kera = gothic lolita, jrock, punk and some cutie. Egg = yamambas and Cutie is exactly that. cutie fashion. also like jpop fashion. so cute and colorful its revolting. only reason I love FRUiTS is because of the punk boys and the gothic lolita girls. I normally try and make my own clothes from looking at what they have.

    Dr Ben: I have numerous ideas for where to shop if you like those weird fashions. tell me what you're looking for and I'm sure I can find it on eBay for under $15. :)

    No, I said "Trendy, Trendy", You misunderstood me.

    Trendy = Cool, tight, fresh, etc. in Japanese Slang

    It's prononuced "Tou-rIIIn-dy" that is in a nutshell all of the styles grouped together.

    i.e. Techno = Drum & Bass, Trance, Jungle, etc.

    Trendy, Trendy = Egg, Pop, Punk, Stoner, etc.

    You have that fetish TOO?!?!?!?!!! OMG! Youre only the second girl Ive met who has this urge to keep people. 'Cept I wanna keep them in huge glass jars. Only my friend Ahren gets my closet. And the vodka. And the poptarts....

    FRUITS kicks ass! I got two gift cards for Borders and finally bought the book. I saw a new FRUITS mag on ebay I was going to buy but Im trying to be better about my spending...heh heh. Everytime I look thru the book thou I see new stuff I hadnt noticed before. Ive fallen in love with Swear shoes. BRIGHT COLORS!!! Their like the Lawrence kid-punks only amplified. I dont like the croqueted "grandma" look though. Bleh..... I never have. That style should DIE!!

    Weeks - BenRa needs to get some new stuff too, and you KNOW Im always up for shopping and weird stuff. I get my paycheck next week and I still have that shitload off hot topic dicount cards so that can be at least one stop for fun shirts. I still want my "You Suck" bunny rabbit top. Taco has good taste in clothes though, you might have to take her up on her offer too.

    I have so much sewing to do to fix up some of my clothes. Im so lazy about projects. I finally bought some sewing glue so I think Im going to start taking some of my stuff to work for something to do for break.

    Hey guys, I need a bit of advice.

    You all know I work for a shitty company. The managers treat us like three year olds and we often arent allowed to talk to our co-workers without getting written up. Everything is tightly regulated and you get punished for mistakes even if its their outdated computer systems fault.

    I just got a job offer from a small company I applied to a couple of months ago. This company seems good, flexible, Id keep the job through the school year and the management has a hands on relationship with its employees, which is something I highly value. The only problem is they pay 7.00hr while Im getting paid 8.00 at my current job. Thats like a 40 bucks difference for one week and 80 bucks for two weeks....plus I can potentially make hella overtime at the one Im currently at.

    Advice anyone? I dont want to take the pay cut, but I dont want to be miserable either..... The manager at the potential company offered to re-interview me and show me the ropes and even train me a little to see if I wanted the job. She said with my experience if I would take a leadership role I could probably get a raise fairly soon, but it still prob wouldnt approach what Im making now.....*SIGH* Im going to discuss this with my family since Im trying to save up for college but my nerves may be shot by the end of this summer with this current job.....
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    D9: I say take the paycut with the more compatible job at this other company. no matter how much money you make it's not worth the misery you're suffering right now. I was going through something similar at Musician's Friend and decided to leave and work at this small proprietorship (liquor store) and I actually like going to work at the store. the people are cool, hours are good and pay is reasonable.

    you're happiness as an employee is more important babe. otherwise you'll burn out or go postal a lot quicker at your current job.

    good luck sweetie with whatever you decide to do.

    TC: yeah we love FRUITS!!! :D I originally made that AV for someone else but he didn't want to use it. *shrugs*
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I'd say take the paycut. its what I'm going to be doing. I work for a Dept of Justice right now and its soooooo not fun working with lawyers. I practically wanna have a stroke every time I come home. so I have an interview coming up at Hot Topic. I'd rather work somewhere where I don't have to confine myself to a strict dress code and lack of communication. that and I feel like my cubby is getting smaller and smaller each day. :confused:
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    It all depends on what you're working for. If you really need the money, sometimes you have to suffer through with a really shitty job to get it. If you're mainly using the money as spending cash, then you have the option of going to the easier, more comfortable job.

    I've been at a job for 4 years, and have worked my way up to being the manager of a small health food restaurant. Basically I'm in charge and make all the decisions, which is a LOT of stress on me. I also only make $7.40 an hour, what a ripoff. But I have the power to dictate my hours whenever I want. Thats why I can take off time to go to ECC, MWC and EVL...I tell the boss I'm going, and he gives me the time off no matter what. So I'm suffering in a really shitty job, with shitty pay, for the sake of being able to take off hours when I need to for schoolwork, trips, etc.

    I don't know if any of this has helped, but my advice is that if you don't absolutely need the extra buck that they're paying you right now, then go to the easier job. I know firsthand how much it sucks to be stuck in a job that you hate, but at least I'm there because it has a fringe benefit that you can't get anywhere else. The extra buck isn't enough in my opinion to stay...
  • RubyHeart4everRubyHeart4ever Retired lady gamer Joined: Posts: 61
    D9, darling, take the easier job. I went through the same thing and in the end I would have rather had no job than stay at the one I had. The stress and the feeling of miserableness is not worth the money, because eventually you can make the money again.

    It's like being in a relationship where there's something obviously wrong and keeps going wrong: the stress of staying and trying to be patient isn't worth it when you can find it elsewhere.

    Not to really change the subject, I took a few days off and thought about what I wanted to do about games. Right now I'm going through a lot of changes in my life, self-imposed changes, and I realized that some things had to change in order for me to even be able to keep going on and be healthy. Videogames have been my life for 14 years. Sometimes they make me want to go out and do something horrible but for along time it was the way I met people and set me apart from everyone else that I knew and made me unique.

    I have seen the ugly side of videogames and I have seen the fun side of games. It's the fun side that keeps me wanting to play and learn new things. For right now, though, I have decided to stick with them and concentrate on the games that I have fun with, instead of staying with MvC2 which had, in the past, turned me against playing games altogether. I don't like the game and like Angie said, I need to step back. I'm going to still play it but it won't rule my life and make me become what I saw it turn my best friend into.

    I want to thank everyone for trying to help me and taking the time to give advice. I really appreciate it.

    I won't be on for a while because I have a family emergency at the moment. My uncle was put into the hospital the other night because he apparently had a stroke. At first they thought it was mild but it turns out it may have been more. So while I'm worrying about that and my relationship problems once again, I don't think I'm going to be on SRK for awhile. I didn't want you guys to think I've totally dropped off the face of the earth or I forgot about you. I haven't and I won't.

    Rubes
    Maybe one day I'll get back in the game. Right now, though, let's just call it what it is: Retirement.

    Rubes, sorry to hear about your uncle. I will keep him and your family in my prayers this week. I'm glad to hear that you are focusing your energies on other priorities in your life right now, but that you are not completely giving up games altogether. I hope everything works out for you and hope to see you back on the boards here soon. good luck to you sweetie.
