Some guys and gals may remember when I ranted about my old TF2 Clan, with the whole experience leaving a rather sour taste in my mouth putting me off the game for a while. Well, today I got an External Hard Drive ((320 GB, eight times the size of my laptop's Hard Drive >.>)), and am now currently downloading Steam and TF2 once more, as I have gotten the bug for it, and I genuinely do miss the game.

So, let's see how long this love affair lasts, shall we?

Also, got my pre-order in for Left 4 Dead 2 - Only a month to go!

Things move FAST!

Okay, as this may seriously affect when I can write, I feel like I should make a note of it. Last week, after nine months and two weeks, and a day, I started working again! However, as I also start college this Thursday...I may not be updating as much as I should...even though I haven't been doing that lately...

Anyway, :iconbidujador: has done a comission for me! Go check it out! The Scotsman commands it!

Also, check out www.youtube.com/user/DagfariHa… for my Let's Play Videos!

And finally thanks to all who watch, comment and fave - I am terrible with commenting back, but I will try!

I'm doing stuff, I swear!

Eh, long time, no update. I'm working on a three/four hapter story that I hope to start posting on Monday. My Birthday is just under 20 days, and oh! I've started my own series of Let's Play's. For those who don't know what they are - someone basically records themselves playing a game, and makes jokes and comments as they go. I'm doing FFV at the moment, so drop by, and tell me what you think!

It's something I had on my Bucket List, and although I admit it's not the way I thought I'd tick it off, it feels great to do so. I have done a bit of vocal work for :iconsincomics: new game - granted, it's a grunt and a hiss, but I don't care. Go check it out, only the first part of the game's been released - however, it should be rather good when all done up.

Also, I'm adding Voice Actor to things people can pay me to do list. Know anyone who needs a Voice Actor? Point 'em this way

First off, thanks for everyone who offered kind words and such 0 they are much appreciated.

Second, I'm kinda finding it hard to believe that it's mid-June already. Although that may be because of traditional Scottish weather...but I found my old mp3 player, so that cheered me up.

Third, it's four weeks, exact ((give or take a day or so)) until I go on holiday over to Philadelphia, meeting up with some friends, comrades and accquitances. I am planning some plots to do while I'm over there, as I may not get another chance to do so. Also, I've also got two other things on the go, one is done, or at least my input has been done - however, I can't reveal it yet, but I shall mention it when I am able to. The second one, is the main one I'm looking to do. Now this one is something I've wanted to do for months, and have now got the items to do so to some level of deceny. And no, it isn't art - I'd need five years, a genie, and a deal with the devil before I did that.

I shall reveal all...when I can

Also, feel free to commision a writer! Writers need love too! Namely Scottish ones!

Mainly this one! >.>

I think I'm in trouble...

Brace yourselves, people silly enough to watch me - I's in a ranty mood again.

Lately, I've been feeling like someone is messing with me, and I don't know who - everything that I try seems to turn against me, making it a waste of time. The painkillers I've been using the past couple of weeks have been messing me up mentally and emotionally - and lately the days have began to blend together into a dreary existance, only brightened when I'm talking to the people around me that mean a lot to me. My family's bugger all help, my friend of nearly fourteen years has most likely decided he can't be arsed phoning or staying in contact - constantly making me feel like I'm an intrusion or pest.

The worst part is that the barriers my mind set up to block out bad memories are slowly crumbling, all because I was stupid to keep a yearbook from high school...then read through it. To be blunt, I'm a lucky so-and-so for surviving those years, and I'm kicking myself for re-opening old wounds. On top of this, I've been getting stress pains in my right arm, prompting calls from an incredibly close friend who has kept me sane to visit a doctor, despite the fact I hate doctors ((As well as dentists)) with a passion. The worst part is, my parents are half-asking, half-telling me to stop hiding in the world I've created and the shield I hide behind and live life.

But why should I when what I have is safer, and makes me happier? How can I destress when I've got so much stuff to deal with? My only hope is that I get my head straightened out before my trip to Philladelphia...

Also, I'm still looking for people to comission me for my writings - I shall ask every journal, as I still need money. I am relatively cheap! And good! Help a starving Scotsman!

I need money - no way around it. However, as a writer, what I can offer is incredibly limited, however, as you can see from my gallery, I have enough confidence in my skills to be of interest to some people, and what I can offer - they can be from as simple as proof reading your work, to writing ballads and poems about your OC's. I have no idea how much to charge for these, so I am flexible. If you have any idea how much I should charge, or if you would be interested, let me know via Message here, or a Note.

General Rantification

----------------------------------------------------

It's a bit of a rant time, as well as other updates - possibly one of my longest journals, but I apologize - the need to rant is big, and dA foolishly gave me a way to do so.

First off, a couple of journals ago, I mentioned that I became a former clan leader. Although one of the reasons was my connection, it was not the main reason. Several months ago, back in September, the actual clan leader, Mass ((It's easier if I use online names, not like they google their own names)) was in a transition period in between moving houses while training to be an air steward - as one of the admins at the time, and having been made the match leader in his absense, I was made his assistant, then co-clan leader a few months later, in February - at first, things were going great, we were winning all matches, then about the time I was promoted, two members in particular started giving me crap about nothing changing that, in their views, needed to be changed.

There were three problems wrong with that. One, Although I was technically co-leader, I had no power over the demands they were making, two, I was only given the power to process applications, and three - they weren't asking - they were literaly demanding things be done. I refused, mainly because of reason one, but two and three played a part. After I called in the proper leader to get them to back off, things calmed down, but they were still not happy that I - a guy who was rather new to the whole clan scene was in charge, while they, who had a lot more experience at online FPS than I were not. I don't know if that is the genuine reason, but it seemed like it - not so subtle comments when I played led to me playing less and less, thinking about leaving and walking away - I put it ofs as I had told Mass that I would keep the clan running as best I could until he got back. That was until a good friend of mine in the clan left as he felt there was a witch hunt out on him. A bit angry that this had happened, I put down some new rules, because I didn't like what happened - this is when their true colours shines, where they completed their transformation into uter fucking pricks. After a couple of insults, and some rather pathetic attacks on my reasonings - I left, without a word of goodbye to anyone - uninstalled Steam, TF2, and removed the clanmates I did have on MSN from seeing me. A bit extreme, but it needed to be done. After talking to my former clan leader, we decided to keep in touch, and when both of us start playing eventually, and he decides to try again in the clan world, we'll team up again - however, I am now in a semi-retirement from the game, still playing now and then at my local gaming cafe, but that's it. When I do return, I'll be gunning for my ex-clanmates.

Got a job interview as well tomorrow, that will be fun - it's cleaning cars, but it gives me money that I need for my trip to Philadelphia in a few months.

Also, go visit :iconbidujador: - he's an awesome artist who's doing something nice for me, and deserves plenty of wub - go on, give him wub!

Switched from IE to Firefox

Add to the list I've got another job interview tomorrow, and that's been the most hectic week I'll have had in a while. Expect a new story in the next couple of days!

Ninteen weeks and four days ago ((Yes, I counted)) I was fired, terminated, booted, given the sack from a job which I hated. After numerous applications, telephone calls, and visits to the Job Centre, I finally have my first interview. It's been a bloody long time, but this may be a step in the right direction. It's one of the few good bits of news I've had this year, This, alongside the fact I start studying Media with Communication come August, and I may be finally getting my life on track.

Now, to celebrate! Not like there's any other reason to celebrate March 17th...

I;ve been spending the past couple of weeks thinking about...well, where my life is going. Spent a bit of time mocked, jeered, questioned - all from my ability to stay the hell way from the norm and be as odd as humnly possible. I've been drifting through the days, worried what people will say, but just a short while ago, I realised "Screw them" I will be who I wanna be, and not hide anymore. So, with that...I say this...

I'm asexual.

After playing such games as Dead or Alive with the intent purpose of mocking them without any reaction, it is a safe bet that I'm asexual...also I feel nothing looking at Angelina Jolie and George Clooney. Basic enough. I'm free! Freeish Freedom!

Well, I'm working on three things in terms of writing. First off, a random one-shot thing I should have made sooner, Chapter five of Backstory ((Expect that by 2010)) and an article for my local Football Team's Magazine. Not big news, but considering they are one of the top twelve teams in Scotland, and I feel damn happy about it! Not getting paid a penny, but it'll be the first time I've been published. So, that has gotten me out of this holiday funk! Now, no more sad holidays this year! ^^

----------------------------------------------------

I was going to wait until the actual day to do this, but I feel the need to yell at something, and Valentine's Day decided to push me today. Take it for the angsty, rage-fuelled rant that this is, but it's my journal, and I wanna get this out.

First off, people who take it upon themselves to bound up cheerily into my face and try and sell me stuff for a girlfriend that I don't have, then ask if I have a boyfriend! I am so not kidding! There are people that don't have someone for this commercial crap of a day that puts uneccesary strain on men's hearts and wallets. I haven't a problem with couples enjoying the day, but do not drag me into it! Do not say "If you smartened youself up..." or "Well, maybe you should get out more..." because neither of which are gonna happen! I am damn happy with how I look 51 weeks out of the year, and it seems to be that the week leading up to Valentine's day, everyone wants to play Cupid!

People seem surprised when I say I'm not after a girlfriend, and then they ask if something's wrong with me! I mean, what the hell? Am I not working right if I don't want to meet someone? Am I insane for being happily single? No, I'm insane for a different reason. The one thing I used to like about this holiday was the cheap chocolate, but I can't take advantage because I'm on a bloody diet! Everything's pink and red, and my one safe haven, a wee gaming cafe a couple of miles away, has gone all lovey-dovey, and I'm getting stared at because I'm playing Left 4 Dead, ripping apart a Survivor...

I swear, ever since the new year, things have been getting worse and worse. New beginnings? More like new bloody problems to deal with. Honestly? I do hope you have someone on this day, no sense in everyone being as angsty as me...

First Journal of 09! Woohoo! Now, With a New Year comes new goals, new plans and...new shiny stuff. After I went through the motions of what some people go through in years that I did in 4 months ((Finish College, Get Job, Get arse booted out of said job)) I was a bit bummed mentally and emotionally, so all I really did was play games and write. After the SFG, and the holiday period, I remembered why I switched stories - I have writer's block the size of...well, something really big. So, in order to help shrink it, I'm opening up freebie requests. If you have an OC who you wish to see in a story, or a ballad or something in writing form, featuring your character, then let me know. Also, in order to give advance warning, for the next month, I shall write...*Shudder*...Valentine Poetry, so if you have a loved one who you want a personalised poem for, note me and we can discuss it.

As for writing project's that are my own ideas? I have no clue - ask me again later >.>

End of the year, end of the SFG Story...for now, end of a lot of things, really. It's certainly been a mixed year, both personally and globally.

Everyone knows what's happened globally, so instead of typing it out, I'm just gonna point to this -------> sendables.jibjab.com/sendables… Jibjab's annual year review! ((Yes, it is incredibly lazy, but it's the holiday season, I'm allowed to be))

Personally, there was good with finishing College, getting a job, and starting the SFG comic, and bad with Losing said job, finishing writing the SFG story...for now, and some other problems. But, hopefully 2009 will be a lot better! Right?
