I'm back, I guess - Trar - 08-28-2012 02:32 AM

After having my life change considerably (which involves not being in public school) and drifting away from this forum for a while, I decided to come back. Glad to see the place is still alive and kicking! Hopefully I can get some answers here (or at least a good time); despite all I've learned in the interim there are still some things that trouble me (howe 2 be teenagerd part 16 teh reutrn of wwwwwwwwwwww). At the very least, I'll make sure not to forget the troubles of youth.

Hello.

You missed a hell of a lot. The site was down twice and the latter sent most of the old members away.

You can read about that here: http://www.school-survival.net/blog/p/ss-forums-notice/3961

Typical. Razz At least it's back now, thankfully.

Welcome back Biggrin

How'd you get out of school, btw?

Welcome back I vaguely remember you from my lurking days.

It was a number of years ago. I was suffering pretty badly in school, so my parents pulled me out and we prepared for homeschooling. Unfortunately, some events happened that got in the way of this; and if I may say so myself it changed me as a person. Right now I'm biding my time and aiming for a GED, and college after that. I haven't gone back to school, since it would be quite a strain on my family (not to mention myself) right now and I really don't want to waste any more time there anyway (i'm sure you should know why).

I wish I could remember you, but it must have been in my short-term memory. Razz

Welcome back! Remember me?

I earned my GED and I'm in college now.

Somewhat. How's college, anyway?

Actually pretty fun. Homework's a little slim, not that I'm complaining. Doesn't really feel like I'm learning much, however. But maybe it'll pick up. Also I'm transferring the nearest chance i get.

I'd like to go to college myself sometime in my future; hopefully it'll happen. And may I ask why you're transferring (dorms or colleges)?

Apologies for supreme necro bumping, but I didn't feel like making a new thread. It's been a while, but I feel I'm finally making progress. I've been feeling more confident, looking into colleges in my area and hopefully being able to start on a GED pretty soon. I'm also hoping to find a job sooner or later, but that's just hope. (We moved from the coast to a smaller inland town, near a city we used to live in.) My family's acting like a bunch of fucktards as usual and while they really piss me off sometimes, they can prove helpful at other times (my mother's been trying to help me with the GED but that's hit-and-miss). 'Course I should probably pass Driver's Ed first, get my permit and find a decent truck first... I've learned more about the world and some of its troubles recently, and after struggling through lots of bullshit (long story, believe me) since about late 2009 or so, things are looking up; I feel better and ready to start taking on the responsibility of Growing Up™. And I might even be losing weight! I'm just trying to take it easy for now and work towards what needs to be done, slowly but steadily(ish).

We tell everyone that I'm homeschooled, and my little brother is currently being taught basic skills that way (but it's not going very well since my parents are assholes to put it bluntly), but I think a more accurate description is that I'm being unschooled. Luckily for me, I've realized my responsibilities and duties when it comes to my future. (And if my brother has to go to public school I might have to go back too; he's been through enough even if he can be real annoying, and I don't want to see him suffering alone.) While I've been occupied a lot lately, sometimes my thoughts turn (somewhat involuntarily, I may or may not be unhinged from the past couple years yes it was sort of that bad) to my old school days, and consequently SS. I haven't forgotten the problem of public education (or maybe it's still working *just fine* as Gatto said), or about you guys (even if I don't post here and I'll probably post infrequently since I still don't have reliable internet access), or about the old school friends that I'm trying to get back in contact with. The friends in question are on the honor roll at the high school I might have went to as well had I not decided to drop out, and had life suddenly decided to take me on a rollercoaster that while painful as all hell, helped me find who I am and what I might want to do. I'm trying to find an e-mail address to contact them with; hope they don't (still) hate me...

I'm doing okay, and I hope you are too after reading all of that.

Welcome back Smile

Long time no see and stuff. Good to hear things are going well... mostly. Smile


RE: I'm back, I guess - brainiac3397 - 04-12-2013 09:22 PM

I still dont know who you are but welcome back, again and again. Congrats on not being screwed over by some unknown force lurking in the shadows...


I'm back, I guess - Trar - 04-23-2013 06:11 AM

Actually there's been a bit of that going on, but it's a long story and hopefully over by now. It should be; I beat Deus Ex a couple months ago. As for my life...it's kinda similar.

Let's just say that I've learned a lot, not just regarding who I am as a person and what my role in society is (and could be), but about humanity as a whole. And we're some pretty magnificent bastards. I also learned a number of interesting things (keyword interesting), and I dare say I am generally more intelligent and (slightly) less impulsive than I used to be posting on here, if not simply a different person. I think.

That's a good sign. Always doubt what you think you know. Wink Good to see you back on SS Trar. Do you plan on attending a community college in the upcoming years, or do you have something else in mind for your education in the future?

Deus Ex the original, as in the first Deus Ex with JC Denton and MJ12/UN(and zeitgeist)? I love that game...


I'm back, I guess - Trar - 04-25-2013 06:55 AM

@ brainiac3397: Yes, that Deus Ex.

@ |55555|: Yes, it's good to be back, especially now that I'm basically more knowledgeable and mature than before. (I say this because I read through my older posts recently. Razz) Nice to see you're still kicking too. Community college is definitely not out of the question(I intend to go eventually), but I need to get the GED sorted out, and quite possibly find a job and undergo Driver's Ed. And money is very tight, so yeah.


I'm back, I guess - brainiac3397 - 04-25-2013 08:16 AM

I have an urge to quack.

Fill out a FAFSA. I did a couple months ago and basically I'm eligible for enough in aid to get me through community college, but not through the four year college after I transfer. I'm just gonna figure that out later. Worst case scenario I have border-line rich relatives to turn to.


I'm back, I guess - Trar - 06-12-2013 11:15 PM

Nope, I'm in Maine. And I will definitely look into FAFSAs when the time is right.


I'm back, I guess - Trar - 12-08-2013 09:41 AM

I'm back again right now. I guess I'm that sort of intermittent poster. And I have not forgotten the struggles of youth.
