Good Hmmm, let's see. 10/21/2014 9:12:23 PM

Joined Marines in 2007, been in since. Deployed once in 2010, and again this coming December. Currently doing deployment training in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Uh, oh yeah, got married in 2010, so that's a pretty big deal. Still talk to Zippo occasionally, and found a letter from SodaGuy from when I was in boot camp. Good times. Definitely a nostalgia trip. That rediculous eM Vending Machine, haha. Wow.

Love, your hate. Your, faith lost. You, are now. One, of us.

Not sure why this is still my home page as the forum sees about a post a month tops. Happy

The only person from here I talk to regularly still is Kai Briggs's ex-wife. Almost got to meet her in person a few months ago, but out schedules didn't work out. Oh well, such is life!

Site says my last post was in 2007. I think I lurked around for a while after, though.

I ending up leaving college and moving to TX before joining the Navy. Been in for about three years, deployed once, and I've been sent on a few short detachments.

I found out that there are a lot of people who play MTG on deployments, so I've picked the game back up again.

Anyway, just saying hey. Be well, all.

Howdy again, strangers.

Can't believe it's been 18 months already since my little check-in message--I feel like somebody's hit the fast forward button on my existence.

Anyway, the big thing going on at este momento is the fact that since January I've been residing in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where I'm working for one of the branches of the United Nations(!). This isn't a permanent gig, thankfully, rather it's my required internship to complete my Master's, which I should be receiving in about a month. After that I'm once again descending into the madness of the job hunt, so who knows what crazy corner of the globe I'll end up. Hopefully somewhere there's at least a bit of moolah to be made.

Anyway, I was extremely bored today (it's quite hot, I don't have a car, and it's not safe to go too far outside) so I got the itch to stop by and wish you chums well.

EDIT: I just realized my signature image is painfully out of date. I'll let it stay in memory of the false hopes I had for Michigan football at the dawn of 2011.

Wow, it feels like yesterday I read that post. The days just fly past as you get older.

That awesome man, what are you majoring in? What field are you looking at career wise?

Damn, after all this time using the various tags for quotes and links still feels like second nature after all this time.

EDIT: I check in these forums way too often.

RE: RE: Random Comment 5/4/2015 2:36:06 AM

My god how the times have changed strider. My "favorite Quotes" still has you in it from over a decade ago.
I feel as if I have come a long way from when I was a kid. Since I was 14 I fell in love with a lady who meant the universe to me, she slept around and to spite her I joined the military.. All things considered it was probably one of the greatest decisions in my entire life, and I'd run back to them in a heart beat if I had the chance. When I was 19 I was a pedestrian and I was struck by a 1998 ford taurus. I totalled the car and spent a few weeks in a coma. After I woke up life happened and I received an honorable discharge from the military instead of a med board, developed a drinking problem, lost just about everything, and met my now wife. She picked my ass up by the scruff of my neck, helped me conquer alcoholism, and put me in school. Now at 25 I'm a sophomore in the UK engineering program and I have an expected graduation date of May 2017. I'm very hopeful for the future for the first time in years, and although I am a man who staggers under the burden of his own regrets, I know that in time I will be able to atone for my past sins.
It's strange, I have such a crushing wave of nostalgia every time I get on this website, it is at the same time sentimental and gut wrenching, seeing the remnants of my decks that made it through my 2009 purge; seeing my thoughts and mannerisms on old posts from days long past. I feel as if it would be a good thing to visit this website one last time when I die as an old man (hopefully) many many years from now, just to get this nostalgia one last time.
I often wonder if the reason why we no longer visit the site with such zeal is because of the power shift that has happened in magic cards over the years. With this shift, cards become more and more powerful and our lust for the game and all aspects of that game simply diminish. Why try to break a format when you can simply get on starcitygames and net deck something that works. There's only so much we can say to each other when we break our own arms jerking ourselves off about how incredible our splinter twin combo worked at our local game store.
Alas, I must get back to calculus so I don't fail all of my finals tomorrow, but I do in the very least try to check the website a few times a week. I know it's dead, but death has never bothered me; I know life will come from death, even if it starts with something simple like me posting a type 4 decklist for a new player to get excited about. We have truly passed the torch on to a generation of stagnation.
-Lucas

RE: Random Comment 5/15/2015 10:38:33 PM

Hey everyone just stopped to say hello. Can I jump on the nostalgia bandwagon? Firstly, I am posting to the gdf on a cell phone something I would have never imagined. It's comforting to hear how each of you found solace in this place, I echo that sentiment. As a lonely 12 year old growing into an awkward teenager you were my guys. I still sometimes bring up the forum I used to haunt. Love you guys keep it real
