When I first posted, I was in a new job I was excited about and posted from work.

Now I'm sick of that job AND I got laid off from it and I post from home in my PJs.

When I first started posting here, I was doing alright in college and I had a regular job. Now I'm unemployed and I'm failing the two courses I'm taking right now.

There's another aspect that I forgot....a pretty significant one.

When I first started posting I had no girlfriend (hadn't had a "regular" one for years actually) and I was clubbing every weekend.

Now I have nice girl and we stay in every weekend.

When I first started posting, I was in school, had my own house with my 2 dogs, had a nice job, a residency at a club, playing house parties and reaping the intimate rewards that came with them. This is a damn good thread by the way. Now I'm in Seattle, I cant get a job doing what I went to school for, I'm living off my credit card,(I cant afford to renew my subscription to GR)I have a steady GF(the only thing good going since) who is understanding of my situation thank god, and I got a crack in my windshield.

On a positive note, I've been reading books;All families are psychotic by Douglas Coupland is the shit just like the rest of his books, and I've been enjoying the great outdoors of the northwest via hiking and sightseeing w/ my GF, friends and my dogs (I love my dogs, I'll post pictures of them soon).

This is all transitional for me. I aint stressin shit. I'm not in a hurry for upward social mobility. In my present state I have to be grateful for the people who love me including you MF's up here in the robot lounge (you know who you are).
peace

new job, new semester at school, not quite as broke as when i first started posting (that can change at any moment), but waaaaaay more addicted to the internet now than before. i guess i can be happy to say that instead of being addicted to playing euker with other people on yahoo and downloading from napster, i am now addicted to the robot lounge and aim. THANK YOU GR!

oh yeah. i think the robot lounge has made me a bigger dork than i was before (it's not that big of a stretch), so now i talk about my "internet friends" and get weird looks from my boyfriend and best friend like i'm talking about my imaginary friend who i drink tea with every afternoon @ 3. yay. now i'm depressed.

<pre><font size=2 color=black>When I first started posting, I had just finished the fall semester with A's across the
board. I wasn't questioning where my life was going. I didn't acknowledge that I
didn't want to be what I was studying to be. Now, my gpa has gone down significantly.
I'm thinking of dropping out of college to pursue my dreams. I didn't even have a
dream when I started posting. I'm reading alot more than I used to. I'm crying more too.
One thing that hasn't changed is that I still don't have a girlfriend.</pre></font size=2 color=black>

considering the lounge anniversary is comin' up i guess its a good time to reflect anyway..when i first started posting.. i was living in the shitty attic of this house, i had just finished a summer of taking 3 classes straight I was still in the midst of recuperating from a falling out with a friend of mine and i just started one of the harder semesters of my life, plus i had no job..all in all, I think i'm way better now than when i started posting...maybe partly cuz of this board, i have another outlet to express myself and have gotten to know a lot of cool peeps

keep ya heads up yo

10-06-2001, 10:10 AM
Um, i started posting like 3 weeks ago... i'd say i've changed a great deal.

I haven't been on long enough to compare "before und after", but my life is better because of the board in little ways. I've been turned on to cool music and movies,
had interesting discourse, and met friends in my area: Sethius and Shoegaze. I hope to get to know all of you
better in the future. Oh yeah, I'm still friggin' single...

Asharak
10-06-2001, 10:00 PM
I guess another thing that's different is my health, which has been failing for the past few months. I've recently joined the Dick Cheney Club, which I think is stress-related, the cause of which is probably my crappy Compaq laptop that keeps screwing up all the time and driving me up the wall. My doctor referred me to a cardiologist to go see sometime next week, but I don't know if my HMO will cover it. My stress-anxiety medication hasn't reduced the chest pains or the irregular heartbeat any either, so I'm sure it's something more serious. So if I stop posting here permanently in the near future, it will most likely mean that I'm dead.

lets see, i've only been posting for about two months.

first off, i would say that i have had the pleasure of conversing with and getting to know some cool people, whose caring and love i came to greatly appreciate during the whole wtc disaster.
i spend way more time on the internet than ever before.
i spend much less time working which may get me into trouble soon.
i ruminate more often than i would care to admit about various threads and posts on the lounge, leading to imaginary arguments in my head.

before GR, i used to be a hairy midget who got all the chicks with his magnetic personality.

now, i'm a hairless bohweemuth that's afraid that everyone know's what i'm thinking. oh, and i like stuff nowadays.

i've always been an internet whore. it started with mIRC. that program was all i had in highskool. now i've moved on to GR. so rather than being productive and stuff, i use my time to throw down my $0.02 on shit that shouldn't matter so much to me. ah well. i love it and i'm not changing, unless i get some sweet sweet lovin. then i'll relish being the whipped-azz boyfren.

til she breaks my world in two and i end up pouring sugar in her gastank and pulling an icepick on her new man. that'll show her!!!!

uhhhhh, i think i need a nap.

I dunno if it's just that the people who posted to this thread are going through transitional periods in their lives or what but it's making my life feel D-U-L-L. I started posting right off (wow, I guess that makes it nearly a year) and I am still in the same job, same girlfriend (non-existent one, that is) and still doing the same type of stuff for kicks. Maybe I'm stuck in a rut?

Oh, and all the posts concerning academic ineptitude, brings me back to my school years…. I hope that it doesn't get ya down too much. In the end it didn't mean shit for my life (at least not as yet).

I haven't seen this thread in a long time either. I didn't post a reply to it because I was pretty new back then and didn't really have anything interesting to report. I was pretty much wasting away in dead, suburban Northeast Philadelphia with no job, no social life, and no computer. All I had was an old webtv console in which to get online with. Now, I'm living in center city, have somewhat of a social life, and a brand new computer. I did have a job but I lost it about three weeks ago. I didn't like it anyway. The good news is I've managed to save up enough money to get into business for myself. Yes, my sister and I are going to try our luck in the fashion retail market! So, yes I would say there's been many changes in my life this past year.

work is like - not making sense. a stooopid woman who knows nothing and whines all the time has been promoted to manager status. we moved from offices (yes - wiff a door that closes) into cubicles, like in dilbert and office space.

my house is messier.

i still have no female companionship, and am missing it.

i have some new frends that are rich - this is a good thing. i am going sailing this weekend wiff them on their boat 56 foot ketch (memorial holiday) YAY.

i lost some weight, but haven't gone to the gym in like 2 months - go figure.

i read the GR posts a lot before ever posting. really glad to read the collected dialogues of people with taste. it was interesting to see many things i already knew and liked plus the bonus of new things to know and like. i found Giant Robot, the magazine, in the more formative and transitional part of my life. reading it impacted my life because it was a linking point to many other experiences that i was at a loss to find on my own. other magazines were common and unrelated. this place is a gold mine. new music. information. opinions. finding a new thing is what life is all about. creativity. stimuli.

i see orange when i close my eyes because of this place.

sadder (ahh love lost) yet, a little more centered, a little more together i suppose.
it's my 1 year anniversary since i first posted under a different name and while i go through periods of time when i get bored of this whole "posting" thing i always come back, maybe not as eager and stoked as i once was (i was crazy about the lounge at one point, i tested relationships when i would visit someone with the express intent of using their computer to come on here or post at work on my lunch hour or go to an internet cafe and spend 5 bucks an hour to post random thoughts). yah, i was hooked once. it's still cool though and still remains the only board i have ever posted on.

when i first started posting I had never been on another forum and never knew what the hell was supposed to happen here. So I started posting and it turned into a refuge to turn to and feel like there were people who enjoyed to think about things and read about things and laugh about things like I did. So it's kind of a place of belonging for me versus a place where I want everyone to notice me no matter how foolish I seem.

When I first joined, I would've carefully thought about my response to this question. Then I would post a page long tirade, touching on a wide range of totally irrelevant, yet extremely heartfelt bullshit. I would edit it about six times.

I would continue to think about it, possibly for days. If no one responded (it usually killed the thread) I would repsond to it wit some really vague shit like "that's always the way".

Then I would delete the first post.

And leave the board for 6 months.

I care a lot less. It's not the same as being burned out. I felt burned out for a while, but I think I've just withdrawn any emotional investment. I'm more irritable, less sociable, but don't care enough to get into long-drawn-out battles. Nothing makes me cry anymore, though sometimes I still feel sick and angry. Other people probably like the version of me that barely posts more, but I liked the old me more. I used to be more interested in throwing parties, more interested in organizing meets.

I would say it's had a bad effect on me, but then I met some people through here that mean a great deal to me, and that more than makes up for everything else.

I still occasionally get riled up and start to post firey retorts to stupidity...


but I start a response and about halfway through the second or third sentence I think "ahh...who gives a crap..." and I just go do something else. getting riled at people on the internet is a waste of time and emotional energy. I just accept the fact that there are a lot of idiots in the world and I'm probably not going to change that in any significant fashion.

i basically don't do any chemicals now, so my rants and raves have tapered off, although i still think the same things i always did, i just keep them to myself more..

i feel less need to explain stuff to people [whether they wanted to hear it or not hah!], plus the fact that without chemicals it's harder to maintain certain lines of thinking to the extreme extent needed without a maximum expenditure of effort and concentration [which these days i need for other things].

and i have to actually get up in the mornings now and do stuff so i can't sit on the internets for hours at a time like i used to ..

also i think so much stuff has been covered on the forums in the past [and i still feel like a relative newcomer] that sometimes it feels like everything's been said in some form or another..

Man, I don't remember what was going on that had me feeling so negative. I think I just got sick of internet fights. I miss the old parties quite a bit. 5.92's house, Iago's house, my house. We had a lot of fun and it was such an oddball crowd. I'm now the happiest I've ever been. From the day my friend Dennis said, "Hey, you read Giant Robot, right? Did you know they have a store? and I went in and Bill Poon told me to check out the Lounge, to now being FB friends with atomiclitorisbox's toddler and having a babybot of my own.

What a long, strange trip it's been, as a drunk man once said.
