Well, to anyone reading this, welcome welcome!
I've been a long time Runescape player and have, for better or worse, stuck with RS3/ since its release.
I go in spurts. I get distracted by life, and hyper focus on things. Inevitably I take a turn right back to Runescape.
Something about its nostalgia + its ADHD Capable gaming system keeps me coming back to waste my time (I mean, I believe all video games are in many ways a waste of time, doesn't keep me from playing them a helluva lot).
I got back into it once the significant other got kicked outa the picture, and strangely have been doing much better ><.
I used to have no level 99 skills and now I have 5... Ive always just spread out my time on all skills because I get too bored grinding one. But for some reason I was finally able to grind out a few lol.
I finished Plagues End and Birthright of Dwarves.. got Imcando Mattock and Pickaxe (working towards Earth and Song since mining is already 99).
Honestly most of what was made easier was because Priff opened up to me... made things so much easier to grind on certain skills.
Finally have money, to where 6-7mil isnt "a lot of gold" to me anymore lol. (Managed Luck of the Dwarves, Grace of the Elves, and a few other middle-highend items)
I remember the days when just getting a regular ole Rune Platebody was worth more than most of my bank... Just glad I can finally be on the upper-ish end of capability lol.
Total Level 2468
99: Mining, Smithing, Fishing, Cooking, Divination.
So, just kinda an update. Ive been at home mostly, taking online classes and jobless (i hate that last part honestly) so all I Have to do is randomly grind on Runescape lololoololooool
Wave2:glow2: Selling Rune Ess 20 Each (psych)

this yourlisten website is trash and prolly give my virus
Sal's had been so intertwined with young me's development for so long it's funny to me how I'm still drawn to make this post even though it's been like three and a half years since my last one. In that time I've become a homeowner, gotten married, adopted a dog, and yet nothing drew a post out of me til now. Coming up on a year ago now the pieces slid into place for me and I saw the clearest picture of myself to date. In my first few years here as a freshly minted member I was a proud witness to more than a few forumers finding themselves and it's only taken me a decade to catch up. Sometimes I can only shake my head at young me but then again, who am I to judge? I forget how long ago it was but at one point this year I made a semi-subtle status update alluding to the subject of this post but deleted it after being surprised by a facebook chat invite to a group of slammers. Real life name meets internet folk, you know how it goes.
So I guess this is take two? I'm split between sharing a fundamental part of myself with a scattered group I considered friends and the status quo of shutting in. But today was rough for me, all I want to do is eat again or watch more Netflix. And I'm just about out of whiskey. There’s this weird duality where it feels like I’ve had to grow up so fast while dealing with doctors and insurance for the first time, and yet I’m experiencing at the same time the rollercoaster of self-discovery and emotions I would’ve associated with middle school. Whether it's today with you or a year from now with literally everyone else, I'll have to get used to trusting in people's goodness. And so, with more time on my hands than ever, I ask this one question: do you think there's a prominent trans slammer I might have been aware of? You know, asking for a friend.

So for charity, I will be boxing in an amateur fight on the 21st of March. I'm telling you this because you will be able to watch it on youtube, so I will post that for everyone to see. But as it's for charity, I need to do my bit. If you want to donate anything my page is http://justgiving.com/matthewzacharyfletcher
It's the first time of combat sport I've ever been involved in and I'm really excited to see how it goes! I'm really into boxing and watching fights and breaking them down punch by punch. Watching boxers weaknesses and strengths and seeing how they do with all that I know. Recently I made a bet on the McGregor vs Cerrone fight and won £300 based on a first-round win by McGregor in the first half of the round.
Just wanted to add if you haven't already considered it go and follow this topic if you're interested because it just keeps growing and growing.
So I've been pretty quiet recently, and that's not the fault of anyone here. Life ticks on and mine has been doing that. I stopped running my own business after the shop's bills were so astronomically high that finding profit was getting more and more difficult. I started working for a DIY/Hardware store in the UK, got promoted, and I'm working towards another promotion.
2019 saw the birth of my son Zachary, an absolute diamond of a baby boy and the best thing to ever happen to me.
Unfortunately, my relationship with my then-fiancee didn't quite work out. So back to being free and single, but I still have Zachary, and that's all that matters.
I got fat, fatter than usual. So now I'm trying to cut back and be a good boy. I've got a boxing match coming up in March for charity, and that looks like it's going to be pretty epic.
ik spreek een beetje nederlands
mijn nederlands is niet goed
this has become a life update thing. It's weird reading back on them and being like oh yea that happened random.
and in a previous blog said i was 'banging a total hottie'...
who is now my girlfriend and i remember my head space at the time and why i would say something like that (i was semi just taking the P one fifty five, but still) and looking back that's messed up and I would never even have those thoughts cross my mind about her now. Not that I've matured (i wish), just the way I perceived her was way off base with who she was, and that's crazy.
random how sheets change
and random how much I'm changing my sheets for this girl (apparently they sposed to be changed like more than 1nce a year)
hhaha I'll look back at that sentence^ and either laugh or cry, depending how this relationship goes. It's not on the rocks, but due to things said above (my perception of her, and even her perception of me), it means our relationship is built on a rough start. We don't have that tale of falling in love. Not that it should be all hollywood, but it's just not a nice story if someone asks how we met.
Thoughts? Every time someone would ask "How did you guys meet?" it would be this awkward, bringing back a lot of bad memories experience for both of us.
Is this doomed?
Is this good? Can we outlast anything if we got past this?
I wrote up some code for a post (further explanation there) and thought it was too interesting to not use for a Sal's-based post. Querying the word "Salmoneus" against my code resulted in the above image, where the green items are "closer" in meaning/presence to Salmoneus, while the blue are furthest; although I think it's interesting to consider the central axis more of a mirror than anything. The items in the middle are closest to 90 degrees with Salmoneus - interestingly enough words like "sensibility" and "micromollusk"
I want to know if "hotness" is in fact close to Salmoneus, where are our old members like Vera (oh wait that was Co-Z) or Miss Death (oh wait she might be dead) or KITTENBLOB
I just turned 24 a couple of days ago.
Just reread a bunch of my old blog posts and there was a post commemorating my 15th birthday. It's funny to read this old journal and see what I was like - some real teenage angst back there but some of the stuff that I posted about 9 years ago is still important to me (I posted a lot about Daria 9 years ago and I just contributed to a Daria fanzine a couple weeks ago).
Also I really don't want to see this forum die so here's some content.
HEY GUYS! I'm back. Zazzy gave me an oldschool bond for a week; anyone else playing oldschool still?? #SALS_CC #SALMONEUS_LIVES
I made a Patreon and am slating myself as producing Generative Art & Critical Thinking-based posts, but I've got 3D printing ideas and a lot of other stuff going around; if y'all have any thoughts (critical!! I wanna hear them!!) about my first post I'd love to hear them. Link is here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/24773177
Anyways, enough about me, what's everyone been up to lately? I miss Runescape and the community here; crazy how it's been over a decade for (almost? I'm guessing EVERYONE) the typical user here! Weird growing up around a video game as our common interest. Talking about playing Castle Wars is way more fun than talking about beer, drugs and the weather
