Well,This part made me realize that I spend WAY too much time on this site,And thinking about 'Scape. I would literally check this site at LEAST 20 times a day,and I spend all day thinking,Hmmm Charos + 2x Greenscales = 330,Now what would be good for the last 170 points

I have now resolved to only be on this site for a little bit in the Early morning,And after Dinner.

Also,SoA,I want you to know that I'm praying for you and your Family,And I hope other Christians on this site will do the same.

Re: Problems.

It sounds like you are in a very rough spot in your life- school, family finances, a family split.

People take drugs and drink because, for a little while, they are able to forget the unpleasantness and the emptiness in their lives, they escape the pressure and briefly forget about the things they cannot change. It's a negative action because it doesn't help their situation. It costs money and in the morning all the problems are still there and probably they feel sick.

People become obsessed with Scape (I'm guilty) for the same reasons- it gives me something to think about when my life spirals out of control. When I was losing my job, I made up a new master set. It's something I like, it's a refuge and it made me happy, and gave me hope for the future. Helped keep me sane. Life must have hope and joy. Scapedreaming is not negative because you have friends here, you touched and helped people even if you didn't know it, you exercised your brain and your creative abilities- thus increasing those abilities, you contributed to something bigger than you - think the force in Star Wars- you contributed and this force is with you.
Plus Scape, unlike alcohol or drugs, is a one time purchase and lasts for years.

I know I sound corny but I don't care. I'm still in a roughish spot, but I understand better that the things I can't change aren't worth suffering for, and then I go home and make customs and have an awful lot of playing with family and friends. One of my good friends just lost his house- it's awesome to see him laugh and get excited when playing.

Now I'm rambling, sorry.
If you let yourself be filled with negative things it will poison you. It's okay to put positive things in- joys. It actually makes you stronger and better able to deal with negative.

You'll get through the rough spots- you just have to get up everyday and make it to bedtime. But spend time cultivating the things you enjoy and love- happiness is something you have to grow yourself. Sure sometimes you stumble on it and that's great but real prolonged wonderful happiness is hard work. It's doing the things you love, and being nice to yourself. And you'll be surprised how that "leaks" into everything else- relationships, situations, and it makes your whole live better.

Scape on, SoA, Scape on.

No, it was a novel about time travel.

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

Re: Problems.

I hope you change your mind SoA. I feel like if I was going through a hard time, the last thing I would do would be to leave this community. I am more amazed every day by the quality of people who frequent this site. You have been one of my favorites. Fan-Fic was the first 'group' I got involved with and I am extremely happy I did because it gave me the opportunity to interact with you and enjoy your well written tales. You have a gift and I hope you continue to write even if you do not return to HS. I wish you all the best and will refrain from suggestions because more qualified people have already given theirs.
Time has a way of healing all wounds. In time I hope to see you again. Peace....

Re: Problems.

I was informed by my younger brother Ninja Status (said somebody PM'd him) that I should look at this thread. I'm stunned, to say the least, at two things:
Spoiler Alert!


Right, so as I said in the OP, I still have some problems going on. The good news is, they've gotten (slightly) better over the past couple of weeks. My guardians, for lack of a better term, have gotten a bit less, shall we say, petty with each other. My grades are on the rise. The financial situation is still bleak, as ever, but I can deal. And to cap it all off, (I didn't even know this was going to happen), some of my favorite relatives have moved down here from Chicago in the past week (go figure, metropolis to desert wasteland). So in a nutshell, things are leveling off, whereas they were in a sharp descent a few days ago. I hate plotlines that can't be consistent. Of course, times are still tough, but as I said, I'll deal.

The completely amazing replies here have made me decide that I'm going to stay on the boards. And to be perfectly honest, the past days have had my hand itching to go for the mouse, to get on and post something. I refrained. I should have listened to the twitching fingers. Thank you all so much for supporting me.

To be honest, I think this was a good idea for me, to try staying away. It was good in theory, but it drove me near-insane in practice.

So, yeah, in a single sentence I could have used instead of a long post: I'm back.

Re: Problems.

Very cool. I was I bit sad yesterday. Glad to have you back. What a great day. The return of SoA and the C3G release of Ghost Rider. Beautiful day, great to be alive.

Re: Problems.

Welcome back. Just remember: Moderation. Don't spend way too much time doing anything. Well, except being happy. You should always be happy.

Don't think of it as being outnumbered. Think of it as having a wide shot selection!
