All About alext_b
After another long break, I finally decided to check back in. It amazes me to see that I joined this community way back in '06. I can't believe it's been so long since I've been away. Well, I'm still busy as hell, so much has been going on lately.
First off, for those of you who don't already know, my dad works as a diplomat for the US, which means he has to keep shifting countries every few years, and I get dragged along with him. So, a month back, we said sayonara Japan, and now I'm in India. I absolutely HATE the weather here. It's so hot and humid. And they don't even read manga here!! But otherwise I guess they're nice people. I've been here barely a month so I can't really judge.
Second, I'm now in final year of high school. The subjects I'm studying are: English, Japanese (2nd language, I had many other options as well), History, Political Science, Physics and Maths. I like all of these so I find them interesting more than difficult.
Lastly, regarding my presence here, I won't be here regularly until April or May '11. But since my b'day is in April and my GS anniversary in May, both work out fine Oh, and this time when I return, I'll be here to stay
I'll try to keep everyone updated. In the meantime I'll just lurk, and hope that some of my friends are still around.
Yes, I'm still alive. And no, I wasn't waiting for a princess to come and wake me up with a kiss My last blog post is date Oct '08 and I can't believe it's been a year since I last logged in. Glances at the inbox though, keep me glued to reality. Why have I been away?
Well, first of all, when I first left GS there was close to zero activity, and I'd found other places to go to. Plus, I was pretty busy back then and quite literally addcited to GS so I used to end up wasting a lot of time. I'm still busy but the addiction is no longer there...
Secondly, my system back then was old, really old, and couldn't run anything new. But now I have a new rig and decided to at least come to GS to take a look at what's floating around, and lost to my urge to log in
My rig: Intel Core2 Duo E7500 2.93 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 1 gb, with 2 gigs of ram and 1 TB HDD. I kept telling my dad that 2 gigs ram won't be enough but he said that I can get an upgarde when I need to. Same for the CPU. The GPU should last for a while but when it falls short I can just bridge it with SLI.
The first game I played was Assassin's Creed, something I'd bought a few months after it was released and was just waiting to play it I intend to go get some games this weekend, which is why I looked up GS.
I know my last blog post said this too, but once again I'd like to know what's going on around here...A short update on action/racing games would be welcome. And please let me know if there's enough activity around here to sustain me or not. All this, only if you guys still remember me...
Wow! Things have changed so much around here.....I couldn't recognize my profile at first and now I can't help but feel that I've been hibernating
I know I said that I'd be 'inactive until the boards picked up' but well, some personal matters kept me from returning. This is my first login since June. To be honest, I won't be properly back before sometime in '09 but I might still make random blogs like this one.
So how's everyone been lately? I checked my PMs and lot of changes seem to be taking place, especially in the EAF Union.I'd be really grateful if you guys could update me on what's been going on, both in the gaming and the GS community. Any special event coming up or some really cool game. I may or may not reply to your comments, but I'll definitely read them
P.S. Feel free to update me on your lives too while you're at it.
