thanks for the support and responses, everyone. i think this is part of a larger problem that i’ve been going through for a while but have been ignoring or at least refusing to recognize as a problem. lysandre, i think you’re right in that this university isn’t a good fit for me (i’m planning on transferring to columbia u if all goes well these next few quarters), but i think the alienation and the unhappiness i’m experiencing are allogeneic and have to do with me as a person. i don’t know. i think i’ve just become disillusioned with college and i’m too embarrassed to talk to people and i’m just watching myself fail which is a problem, naturally. i'm having a bit of a meltdown but i feel like i'll be alright. i guess. incidentally, i ended up with a 95 on my calculus midterm despite not studying, so that was cool. i think i’m eventually going to go seek counseling while i’m here – i probably can’t continue going on like this without any form of recourse. i've joined a few clubs and whatnot, but everything is just getting a little frustrating. i'll keep going.
I didn't have many friends either in college and the one person who hung out with me in college was always unintentionally or not, ruining my self esteem. But joining a club or an organization will really help out. I know you might have a problem speaking to other people but just try to open up and don't give up. It sucks being alone. You could even go Greek if you're bold but if not Hey a club can be just as or even more fun. I've been a lot happier after joining a club and I don't feel so bitter anymore.
Honestly, it doesn't sound like there's anything wrong with you as a person, it sounds like your college just isn't a good fit for you... no shame in that. If your friends are in your hometown, why not consider transferring to a college closer to you, even a local community college? No education is worth going through what you're describing, and it sounds like you'd be much happier elsewhere.
That's awful :( I'm also finishing up my first semester in college, and I don't have very many good friends either. Most of them are just friends I talk to once in a while but nothing special. But all I have to say is just wait for next semester :) I just registered for my classes next semester on Friday and I am just anticipating it and I'm waiting for it :) if you just anticipate life and look forward to the next day, you'll be fine and graduation will seem faster, trust me!
Hey! Don't give up, hun. :c It'll be okay, just try to stay positive. <3 Stress can really overwhelm someone, so you have to take a step back to relax.
mijzelffan, i really don't remember
it's something along the lines of sd lucario / fighting gem terrakion / sdef hippowdon / mix jirachi / lo starmie / lo latios
i mean all of them are allowed in ou and i never have any problem with any of them when i'm playing higher up
i mean it's an obvious troll but sometimes i like to vent so i take the bait lol
What was your team?
Troll's gonna troll. Play how you want to.
You gotta get there while you're still in your prime, man, or else it's down-hill from here. Just look at me. I'm a has-been. I'm all washed up. I coulda been somebody. I coulda been a contenda.
I don't know why, but I found it strangely relaxing. I almost, sorta... liked it? All I know is that before you call that the weirdest music video ever, I'd like to postulate that the video for Miley Cyrus's new song is weirder. I say this because Miley's video was specifically designed by the mantra "How can we shock and appal Miley's former target demographic thus stirring up controversy which will translate into sales?"
Fucking weird man.
Thanks for letting me know, everyone! Sorry for replying rather late; my foot hurts a lot right now and due to some other circumstances, I sort of forgot I even posted this. @FANG-TAN, I think I probably chose the wrong expression when I said "enjoy more" - granted, I like playing them a lot more than some of the main series games (see: BW, DP), but overall, I think I'm more of a fan of the main series games, at least up to RSE. Although I haven't played Pokemon Conquest yet (it's something I intend on doing in the near future), I'll find a few hours to play with it and see if I enjoy it.
I don't. I think the Mystery Dungeons games are good, but not even the best spin-offs in the series (that honor goes to Pokémon Conquest). I actually prefer Pokémon Conquest over some main games, like the Generation II ones and HGSS. If they make a sequel for Pokémon Conquest it have potential to be so great and easily one of my most favorite games in the whole series.
The first Pokemon game I played was Red Rescue Team. I feel closer to them than the main games, I could say.
I probably can't say that I enjoy the PMD games more than the main games, but I get just as excited about them as I do about main games. And I can say that Red Rescue Team is probably my favorite Pokemon game.
I LOVE the Mystery Dungeon games, as an extension I also love the Pokemon versions as well. Can't say I like them *better*, but I really love the stories and dialogue.
(I didn't say "Am I the only one..." because you're never the only one.)
But to answer your question; no. Conquest comes close. If there was a little more polish, available mons, and certain Pokemon weren't outclassed by their pre-evolutions because of the restrictive move system I might actually prefer it over the main series, as I like the genre more.
I heard of Cunninglynguists through a Cracked.com article about stupid rapper names. They said the worst part about their name is that they're actually pretty good. I guess I need to check them out now.
Also Happy Bulbaversary and stuff.
congrats on your 3rd bulbaversary
What they really should do is not be afraid to raise the rate of normal poison to like 70% or something so its more competitive.
