I'm back. Sort of.

Yes, yes. I know. I've been gone for far too long.
(Tch, yeah. Who's complaining?)But I have my reasons. And on top of that, so much has happened. Pokemon related, as well as life-wise. It's kind of hard to put it all in here. But I'll give it my best shot.
Okay. So first, the reasons.
Let me just say this. The MAIN reason why I'm now drawn away from this site is...
X and Y.
Why, you ask? Simple: I don't have it. I don't even have a 3DS, so that kind of puts a damper on actually getting it. I somehow have to round up a couple hundred dollars in order to get both, and my family (myself included) just doesn't have that kind of money to throw about. But back to why it's pushing me away from here: Spoilers. I want to feel the magic of seeing a Pokemon I've never seen or heard of before. I remember it when I was a kid, and it was just so... perfect. It was that feeling of discovery. But now, this site is full of people a bit more fortunate than myself and these new Pokemon are spread all over the site... To me, it's an unavoidable torrent of spoilers. And it's an absolutely AWFUL feeling.
It's like this: You just heard of a book that's really good but nearly everyone has already read it, and now you're surrounded by people talking about the end even though you don't even have it... Understand my frustration now?
Second reason I haven't been here: Shame. I abandoned something I promised to be a part of. I let it die. In all honesty, it shouldn't have happened. I know I let a few people down. People who shall not be named, for the sake of keeping me from getting any more upset about this. And, if any of them are reading this, I deeply, deeply apologize for my actions...
Third reason I haven't been here: In all honesty, I just... forgot. This place skipped my mind. With life and everything else happening around me, I just... forgot. And that's really all there is to it.
-sighs- Okay, with that part out of the way, let's talk about life for a second.
I am now a full-fledged college student, taking 16 credit hours of classes. Midterms were just last week as well. I feel like it's going.. somewhat well. In all honesty, I'm probably failing my English class simply due to my own brain not wanting to take part in any of that. But BESIDES that, I'm actually doing quite well. The college itself is small and so are the classes -- the average size is around seventeen students.
I feel like I'm enjoying my time there. There's definitely a lot more freedom than high school. The only problem is that I can't find a damn job or anything. And the things I used to do in high school (build sets in stage crew, specifically) are now PAID JOBS that you have to apply for. And I did. And I called several times. And I never got called for an interview.
ANYWAY. Yeah. College is cool. The campus is cool. The homework load and study load is tolerable. The people are nice. And one of my professors was involved in designing nuclear power plants, worked at Fermilab, and takes classes himself for the sake of learning about something he's interested in. Yeah, he's a pretty cool guy. And a pretty cool experience. So far.
I think I've typed enough. This wall of text is probably big enough as it is.
Should you expect to see me around again? Maybe. Probably not in anything that has to do with X and Y shit. But other places, maybe.
Alright, I'm done. I hope to get back on here more often. Cheers.
And after all this time, I'll still tell you to stay awesome;
PS: I missed my one year Bulbaversery. So there's that, I guess. Yay?
PPS: For those of you interested (which in all honesty is probably none) Pokemon: The Illusionist is now titled Pokemon: The Fire. Because I can.
PPPS: If you read all this, I love you.
