[color=gray]Well after a short discussion in PM with Spartan, i pointed out that the "Introduction" board was for new members only, and there was nowhere for existing members who never got the chance to post an introduction to tell the others about themselves. So he suggested a "Tell us about yourself" thread under general discussion, so this is it :D! Me Well hello there all, name is mobil, real name is Josh, been hanging around these forums for a few months, reading all posts in general, only replying to a few though lol. Decided it was probably time to post this I'm 17, live in a place called Orange NSW (Roughly 30 minutes out of Bathurst, anyone into Australian or TOCA racing will know this place, home to Mt. Panorama Racetrack). Work in a dead end job at Coles supermarkets, hopefully will be moving into a -better- deadend job pumping gas at United Fuels. Left school after completing yr10, am currently planning to move overseas to help out with a project i've been a part of opening an internet cafe and assisting to run a technology/application development/programming center & website in Vancouver Canada. Have lived in Australia all my life and lived in Orange for -most- of it, Lived briefly in Bathurst, Kelso and Rockley, all places around here. I have a girlfriend (Dez) Who lives near DC in the US, we been together for a little under 2 months now, and i love her more than anything else in the world, regardless of the distance between us (Which will soon be reduced, pending approval of my passport and residency in canada). Anything else about my day-to-day life i put in my blog (Link in sig). Basically everything that happens in my day is put in there for all to read, lol. Thats pretty much all about me (Y). Look forward to getting to know alot of you better than i already do . As alot of people have, i stumbled across this website by pure chance, as in just out of curiosity i typed "gamingforums.com" in the addressbar to see if it lead anywhere and i came straight here :D.[/color]
[COLOR=Red]A LITTLE ABOUT ME[/COLOR]:
My name is "Lust", used to be known as "Covin Narcissus" - I have no idea why I changed it. In real life I'm known as Emily - oi, what crazy nicknames I have - Em, Emmy, Emzy, Em'lay - it's crazy how many variations of my name people can come up with!
I currently [COLOR=Red]exist [/COLOR]in Albuquerque, New Mexico and, well, it's been raining all day. I love the rain! [COLOR=Red]<333[/COLOR]
[COLOR=Red]WHAT IT WAS LIKE GROWING UP & MY FAMILY LIFE[/COLOR]:
I was born in Mesa, Arizona and lived there until I was about 4 year-old then I was moved to a small town, Gallup, NM and I lived there for about one year. I've been been living here (Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA) ever since. I like it here, it has very pleasent weather, though it can get a bit windy at times and, yes, [COLOR=Red]we have a fire season[/COLOR], who knew? I think one thing I like about New Mexico the most is that there isn't a lot of people (compared to Arizona or California).
I have three brothers and sisters - Paulette (26, today is her birthday, actually), Michael (23) and Rachael (19).
I never really knew Paulette when I was growing up since she's ten years older then I am. She's a dating a doctor, is a nurse and has a four year-old son named Frank from her most recent marriage (she's already been married and divorced twice!). Unfortunatly, Frank has been picking up my bad language and repeating it to her, so I have to watch myself when I'm around him.
Michael broke my car! He's the one to blame for all my tomboyishness. I would've ever watched anime or played video games if it wasn't for him! He's a truck driver so I only see him about once ever two months.
As for Rachael... my parents got into an arguement with her and they're not talking - she's really spoiled. She got her tounge peirced, but I'm being a good sister and I haven't told anyone - yet (hehe, she talks funny now).
My dad currently lives in Lubbock, Texas. My parents aren't divorced, but my dad couldn't find a job anywhere else! His apartment is sooooo cool. I wish I lived in one.
I've been to so many schools, too many, actually.
I went to a school called "Puesta Del Sol" through all of elementry - I can't remember it much but it was okay, I guess.
Through middle school I went to [color=red]four[/color] different schools. When I was in 6th grade I went to "Holy Ghost Catholic School". In 7th it was off to "Sandia Veiw Junior Academy" which was a Seventh Day Adventist school. For the first semester of 8th grade I went to a public school [finally] called "Eagle Ridge" and then for the second semester I went to "Taylor".
In high school I've been attending only one and it's called "Cibola", it's aright I guess. I'm a Junior now [w00p, class of '06].
Some of you may think that switching from school to school was difficult, but it really wasn't - I wouldn't ever take the things I experienced. I learned a lot from all of the schools [not just academically-wise].
[COLOR=Red]WHAT I LIKE TO DO ON MY FREETIME[/COLOR]:
I like to go to the gym. I don't think I need to loose weight, or anything, I just like going there and not feeling guilty when I lay around the house for the rest of the day, eating whatever I want. I've met a lot of -interesting- people there and it helps raise my very low self-esteem.
I used to enjoy swimming, but I think since I've done it since I was really young that I don't enjoy it as much anymore - I find myself slacking off a lot and I've dropped out of it.
I also enjoy making movies, a frined of mine got a video camera for Christmas and we're making a documentry about this one boy we know who's kind of weird. It's so awesome. I can't wait to see the finished product!
I wouldn't call myself a "loner" but I hate putting myself out just to make a friend, when I already have enough. I hang around one person at school - Steven, he's probably my best High School friend, not including aquaintences, of course. When I'm at home, I'm with Roxie, my long-time best friend.
My favorite person is probably Ryan (my boyfriend!) because he's always so respectful towards me and has helped me through a lot. He is so dear to me, you know. <3
On the internet I might seem a really extroverted and out-going, but in person I'm almost the exact opposite. Sometimes if I speak out or talk too much I soon regret it. I've gotten over my low self-esteem a lot over these past few years and I'm not shy about everything anymore.
I don't really care for other people's problems, unless it's of someone I really care about but I do give good dating advise, though I don't have much experience in that field for myself.
I don't think I'm pretty since not many people have told me so (unless it's from a good friend), and it's always nice to be complimented by someone!
Sorry for the freakin' novel, everyone.
well imm 14, and i have hair.......
w00t! Lambys back! Nlogn time no see!

Yeah! The party is back in GF!
Anyway, I'm 15, a friendly guy, not easy to piss off. I'm in my freshman year in high school. I enjoy gaming (obviously), mostly first-person shooters and a few RPGs and strategy games. I also like anything that involves being outdoors especially in winter.
Why couldn't he just not come back, he's already managed to spam this perfectly good thread with his lame response.. (Lamby, you are not funny, get that through your under-developed brain of yours)
I'll make a slight effort but i don't have time to go into huge detail.
Was born in wales (i'm not welsh at all). When i was 4 me and my family moved back to England. Been here ever since, i'm northern blood with a kind of northern/midlands accent. I have a mixture of accents as there are so many in the Uk x.x.
Finished school nearly 2 years ago now and i'm looking for a job, i'll work untill i go to college september this year.
In my spare time i play alot of games, go to the pub with my mate(s) and stay over there house a few nights maybe, gaming and binging.
I also talk to my girlfriend as often as possible, Emily her name is, I love her to bits!
Right now my nan is very sick, my family is very upset about that, especially my Mum, i feel so bad. All i can do is not think about it because I worry myself sick about my nan, almost litterally.
I am the only one who is actually cooler than AzH
