Long Time No See...

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I'm sure there's many of you who have no idea who I am, as I haven't been active on here in a couple years. So nice to meet ya'll :) To everyone from back in the BO2-BO3 days, wassup? I've been missing this community, all the deep theories about maps/EEs; you guys were there for me at an important stage of my life when I was a teen who didn't relate to my peers who were more interested in rural town gossip than the stuff I cared about. And I'll always be thankful for that.

 

Anyways, I thought I'd give those who care a recap of what I've been up to the past couple years:

 

  1. I stopped playing videogames as much - Other than having a lot less free time, idk what it is, but my interest has definitely went down compared to what it used to be: I used to be obsessed with gaming and spend hours upon hours each day dedicated to being the best, discovering secrets, etc. Now, I still enjoy videogames, but I play them more casually (2-3 times a week for a couple hours) though I am trying to at least do the Easter Eggs on BO4.
  2. I've continued to make strides with my music - My passion for Hip-Hop has increased exponentially, and I've done some pretty cool things with it. Shortly after my first mixtape, I started to make waves locally and got to perform all over town. After that, I went on to release 2 more, the latest of which I was able to get placed on Spotify and Apple Music. I also released my first music video, got my music played at several parties and tailgates at my University, and have been able to perform in Atlanta a few times which was lots of fun. Along with that, I've collaborated with lots of talented people and have developed my skill into something I'm finally proud of. Now, I'm working on learning how to produce my own instrumentals and I'm working with an EDM DJ to make some genre-bending music to perform at raves, as well as continuing to grind on my solo music. Each year things get so much better and I'm just excited to stay on this road.
  3. I've been going to University - I got accepted to Georgia Southern University shortly after graduating in 2017, and I've been enjoying it there so far. There's been a lot of good and bad times, but I've learned a lot of academic as well as personal knowledge. Met some pretty girls lol, partied some of course, but overall I've been focused on my grades and music. This past semester I got all As and impressed a couple of my professors which was pretty cool. I feel focused with the structure here and enjoy it much more than high school. I am currently majoring in Psychology, though I am contemplating adding a Marketing minor as that field interests me a lot and would also have the added benefit of helping me with my music career. 
  4. I broke my collar-bone - On Halloween last year, one of my friends decided to take us dirt road riding in his jeep. He lost control after hitting a loose patch of dirt and the jeep flipped over. Me and a female friend both sustained broken collarbones, while another friend got a concussion and everyone else (luckily) was fine. The EMTs told us that realistically in that crash we should've all died, so that moment really shaped me. The hospital neglected me when I arrived sadly (they made me wait 3 hours for pain medication and would be joking around in the halls for 20 minutes at a time instead of checking on me, wouldn't notify my Grandma to come see me for over an hour until she complained because they "forgot", and then forcing me out the room once they did and making me put my sling on myself which wasn't even the right size). Along with that, I didn't get my pain medications prescribed for 3 days so I was forced to lay in bed immobile, with my broken bones popping out of place and rubbing against each other and feel the whole thing. My only solace until I got the prescriptions was some CBD oil my cousin brought over. Anyways, that event traumatized me pretty bad for a while, I would wake up after reliving the crash in my nightmares, and it took me over 6 months to be able to ride in cars without having a panic attack. I had to wear a sling for months and was very weak with my shoulder and arm for a bit. But it got better, and now I'm comfortable with everything. It was just a low point in my life.
  5. I experimented - I know this thing gets frowned upon by some, but yes I started smoking weed. Not all the time, but it helped a lot with anxiety and getting out my shell as well as with my creative endeavors. I actually started it before I ever drank alcohol. Now understand, I am not promoting either substance. You shouldn't rely on any substance for anything, and you shouldn't try anything just because I did. But for me personally, I enjoy the effects of THC and I know how to balance it with being a productive member of society. (If this stuff shouldn't be discussed on this forum I will gladly remove this section)

 

There's obviously more that's occurred in the past couple years, but that's the quick summary. Anyways, I won't be able to post everyday but I wanted to return to this place and start posting occasionally again, to start getting familiar with the new members and catch up with the old ones, and maybe conquer these easter eggs. Thank you for reading all of this and thank you guys again for being awesome,

Heyooooo, Speedo. I missed you a whole bunch and I am glad to see you return.

 

1. Yeah that pretty much hits everyone at some point in his/her life videogames can't be the prority all the time. ^^ What games do you still play? (Aside from zombies)

2. Congrats!!! How did it feel to perform in front of people? Especially with your very own songs? That must have been sick as hell. I don't know if you knew this of me, but I had a hard time enjoying hip hop back in the day and still do, but there are some songs I managed to enjoy these past few years.

 

4. Holy moly, I am glad you survived that, but the bad treatment in the hospital sorry to hear that and of course the crash in general is terrible, but kudos to you for beating the panic atacks. ❤️

 

5. Seeing as you study psychology you probably know this already, but be careful with weed. (triggering psychosis etc.) But it looks like you are responsible enough. 😛

Really happy that you checked back in, Speedo.

1. I play some GTA, Fortnite, God Of War, and I've been playing some of the new Red Dead at a friends, hopefully gonna get it for Christmas cause what I've played so far has been amazing.

2. Honestly, it feels amazing performing. I get a huge rush of energy, especially to see people react to it in a positive way. It's really cool when I get to travel somewhere I've never been and there's a crowd of fans waiting for me. I understand the lack of enjoyment with rap, it definitely isn't for everyone. What genres do you listen to if I may ask? 

 

4. I really appreciate that, that's real. As terrible as it was, I learned a lot from it and it reminds me to stay focused because tomorrow isn't promised.

 

5. Definitely understand the risk factors associated with it, I actually did research on weed for a year before I would touch it lol, I appreciate the warning though. Sadly too many people go into it blindly and I hate to see that, the lack of concern people have for the substances they are putting in their bodies, and in hand affecting their minds is disturbing. Harm reduction is key! That said, I definitely enjoy it. I just make sure to moderate my usage and frequently take breaks, as well as using it as an enhancer instead of the main activity.

 

I missed you a lot too btw, how have you been Lenne?

Nice variety of games. 🙂 I agree I also bought RDR2 a while ago and I love it, but I had to take a break from it, cause all the stuff is a bit overwhelming. haha

Sounds great you can be proud of yourself for that. I pretty much listen to everything else. haha The genre I like the most is electronic music, but other than that I feel like I listen to a variety of artists and not really looking at the genre. Though I gotta say in regards to rap I do enjoy me some Kanye. ^^

Yes I have also learned in the past years to not take life for granted.

 

I am doin decent, these past years have been a rollercoaster, but now it is starting to calm down for a bit which is nice especially cause I have a hard time during christmas. But everything considered it could be worse. Thank you for asking.

 

I am gonna listen to your music during next week. ❤️
