Haha. No, unfortunately not :)
He was giving some talk about... Something. It was obviously very important, considering how well I remembered it.
Thinking about it some more, I would wager that he was talking about not doing stupid s**t on schoolies :)

I know I don't post much here anymore. I have been recruited to the Skaven cause recently and am currently going through something of a phase with them. http://s6.zetaboards.com/The_UnderEmpir ... le/222147/

Nonetheless, just in case any of you were curious as to who that weird guy was who was on the forum a while back...

Image

I know, I know. The shorts...

If one thing can be said about the rest of the pictures here it is that they make me feel young, skinny and distinctly beardless.

I'm John and I am currently studying the practice that uses the machines that comrade krysith makes. Meaning I'm studying Radiation Therapy. It was partly the similiarities between LINAC's and Warp Lightning Cannons that provoked the switch to the little rats. Unlike krysith I just couldn't resist. ;) I live in Ireland and have a penchant for juggling, acrobatics, cycling, writing, warhammer and electroswing music.

I'm 24 year olds. I'm from Los Angeles, California. I enjoy Warhammer, MMA, football, soccer and Legend of Zelda. I am a brown belt judoka. I was in the Marine Corps from 2007-2011. I use to play Word Eaters but, I hated the last codex. It destroyed my whole playing style. I also could eat pizza for the rest of my life and be happy.

The Barclays Premier League, imo, is more popular then MLS in the states. We have a lot of Man U and Arsenal fans.

Lol funny thing is though if you show a British person wearing a Chelsea fan a group of Millwall fans he will know to avoid them and cover up his Chelsea badge. If you show a foreign fan a group of hooligans he will feel curiosity at what shirt they are wearing, he will confusion over their sudden hostility, then he will feel pain. I think no matter how much you watch football on the television you cannot even remotely begin to understand certain rivalries until you live here for a bit. And even then you will never understand the violence attached to those rivalries.

I'm not real comfortable with putting my pic up on the net. So I'll post this one because it's how I see myself, er, it's just so cool :P

I am [REDACTED] years old. I'm a diehard fan of the older metal and I used to play High Elves.

Hey Guys!

Really neat to be able to put some faces to names. Totally agree about civil discourse - a lot tougher to nerd rage on somebody when their face can haunt you at night.

My name is Derek, I'm 29 and I live in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. My hobbies include, but are not limited to:

- Homebrewing beer (in case the name wasn't obvious enough :P)
- Mountain Biking
- Using my car as a locker
- Snowboarding
- Obsessing over Warhammer
- Playing bass guitar in my band
- Making concise, bulleted lists

I'm an IT guy by trade, but my educational background is in business. I run a small IT company alongside a friend. If I start getting PM's about computer problems though, I swear to god...

Me with my wife (She'd probably kill me for putting up a picture of her, but a) I'm too lazy to crop her out and b) the internet wins, every time):

Me getting ready to kill myself on the trails:

Greetings to you guys.

My real name is George and I'm 28 years old. I'm curently working in a call center of the leading phone company of Greece (OTE) to make a living but my actual (and hopefuly main in the future) job is artist. I draw pencil art, oil paintings, digitally processed art from portraits to cover artworks. A link to my art blog for anyone who might be interested is on my signature.

Image

Apart from art and warhammer I like reading comics, watching Anime, listening to music (mainly metal) playing video games (mainly j.r.p.g.s) and pen & paper r.p.g.s!


Cheers to all and nice to meet ya. :)

Well I'm feeling about as low as possible right now. I know I posted a picture of me with my girlfriend on this thread but we split up yesterday. 2 and a half years together. To be honest I wasn't in the right place mentally to start a relationship when we started going out, I've had issues going round my head and my ex before her won't let me see my son. Gradually as I've fallen further into feeling low about things I struggled while finishing off my degree and struggled through trying to become a teacher, an endeavour I ultimately failed in as I couldn't cope with the workload.

I know everyone goes through shit things but I think I had let them build up and stress me out in a way which wasn't healthy and the last couple of years have been pretty bad indeed; my dad died in Jun 2010. Anyway these last 6 months I've spent applying for about 30 jobs a week and constantly being knocked back. We were ending up spending all day everyday in the house together with only each other for company and started bickering a lot. Ultimately we broke up yesterday when she said she feels like she can't go on like this anymore.

My constant being knocked back from one position after another has really made me struggle to see where my future is coming from; I've tried several considerations as to how I may be able to even start up my own business and 'create' a job for myself since I cannot seem to find one. Every avenue I've persued has been financially unviable though and this struggle with seeing a future for myself has led to me being very depressed.

Recently I've been a horrible person to be with. Over the past few years I've held onto a lot of resentment towards my ex, but that's waned and has been replaced it seems with just passiveness; I struggle to get motivated or enthusiastic about anything anymore and I snap at people over nothing. I need to feel some self worth again, like I'm doing something with my life and it's going somewhere, I'd happily work for free just to feel like I belong somewhere but the (few) places I've approached for voluntary work so far have all said they cannot take on volunteers!

With us having split up I've decided to just take some time concentrating on me. I want to get myself mentally in a better place before I consider where to move next, I'd love for me and Siobhan to try starting a fresh when I'm in a better place mentally but I think she would rather move on. Either way if I am ever to have a strong relationship again with anyone I need to be happy with myself first and foremost.

I've decided to try and make a few more friends up here, my family moved while I was at uni so all my childhood friends are over 200 miles away, and uni friends are 250. The few friends I do have round here are friends through boardgaming/warhammer, but I find it difficult to connect to most of them as with the boardgamers I am the youngest by a significant margin and the wargamers I know are all either really over the top interested in being in character the whole time or are complete power gaming arseholes... I know another guy who plays fantasy on a part time basis (normally does boardgames with us but he's offered me a game next week, only he seems to be even more of a dick, only wanting to play soft lists with no lord level wizards and only painted models).

To try to pick myself up a bit and try to get some kind of feeling of self worth back again I've decided to try and join a sports team to get fit and make friends. I used to play a lot of Rugby and was quite good when I was at school. I was 6 foot 3 (192 CM) by 15 and was about 14 stone (90 kgs give or take) and played second row. I was pretty usefull at that age. Problem is I haven't grown upward or outward since and cannot hack it playing against people who are 6 ft 8 and twice as strong as me. I've considered playing a different position but I just don't have the speed or fitness to play in the backs. Last game I played was 18 months ago and I haven't played regularly in 3 years. So I'm considering playing football instead or at least attending some training sessions to try to get fit. I reckon I am reasonably passable as either centreback or centre forward when my fitness is ok.

I've widened my jobs search too now and applied for no fewer than 70 jobs just today. I've heard back already from one in Peterborough which is sounding promising and it's described as a graduate position so they don't mind taking someone on who doesn't have that prior experience. Hopefully something comes from that or from one of the other things I've gone for. I'm going to head down to the local pub this friday too and see if I can make a few friends down there...

I just need to focus on me a bit and get some value back into my life. I'm going to talk with my doctor about things this week and see if I can be referred to a councillor as I am so depressed and lonely. Anyway sorry to derail the thread a bit...

I'm the guy wearing sandals. This is a group of my friends before an event.

Hey all. My name is Will, and I live in Orange County, California (US). I am a History Major, and I plan on getting my BA within a year or so, and then getting my teaching credential.

I currently work as a volleyball coach, and I coach both men's and women's. I coach at a high school, as well as a local juniors club.

My local GW is Games Workshop Morningside Plaza. I play High Elves and Orcs and Goblins. I've played a bit during 6th edition, and after a long hiatus I got back into the hobby about a year ago.

Besides warhammer I enjoy surfing. I try and go at least twice a week. I also enjoy going to the gym, and just hanging out with friends. Working two coaching jobs and going to school full time doesn't leave me much free time, but there it is.

@Andrew_uk: I'm not in my best shape phycologically either, so I know a bit where you're coming from. There are many people feeling blue these days.

My advice is to spend as much time with your friends and the people that care about you as you can. Best remedy imo. :)


Cheers, Sieg.

[-X If only it were that simple. My parents moved away while I was at univeristy and so I now live about 200 miles away from my childhood friends, and 250 miles from uni friends. Me and my girlfriend had a pretty poor relationship this last year due to a real break down in communication and a kinda stale routine we got into. I miss her though. Even if we didn't ever feel like we were resolving things or moving forward at least we were always there to talk to and to hug.

In this last 6 months especially she became more like a best friend than a girlfriend but she's the one person I'd like to be able to turn to now that I feel down. She wants her space and tbh, having had to put up with my low mood all this time she deserves it. I'd love to be able to contact her when I'm healthier though just to catch up and see how she's doing but I doubt she will want to do this. Even if we did I doubt we'll ever get back together. We shared so many dreams together and I do care about her so much that if/when I am healthier there is nobody I would rather be with... but I won't even go there unless we are able to communicate better together.

I just need to focus on me for a bit and that means making some friends up here (anyone on Ulthuan in North East Lincolnshire?) I'm signing up to a sports team to try and get fit again definitely and I should make a few mates that way. The only real friend I have in the village my own age is a girl I worked with over last summer... I've asked her if she'd like to go down to the pub one day just so I can meet a few people and she's said she would but while she works here she lives 10 miles away!

I should get some self worth back by making some friends, getting a job and joining a sports team to get fit. I should have done all that months ago and did try (been applying to alot of jobs!) and I started going to a boardgames club but the people there aren't my age and so it's hard to really talk to them.

My advice, trite as it sounds, is arrange to get into a new environment for the next two or three months. A holiday from your current surroundings. Having relatives in distant continents works for me.

You need a fresh perspective and a way to reenergize the batteries.

Hi, I'm Nick and I thought that I would add some crossover from the Off-Topic forum. There appears to be 2 separate worlds on U.net and I'm only part of that weird other one. I'm 25 and an Assistant Produce Manager at a grocery store.

The only little help I can offer is... try to rebuild from the ground up. Healthy food, cut all bad habits (smoking, w/e), go for runs and just try to force change. Think of every day alive has a win rather then a loss. Its not easy to just change everything like that (I've tried a few times and failed) but every bit helps. What you are going through happens to other people too, so hang in there.

+1 to this. Rediscover the things you really like and get some time for them.

Have to agree with this. It's a such a shame though you have a son that you can't take with you otherwise my advice would be to move and start again. Naturally Australia would get my tick of approval. ;-)

This isn't an awful idea actually. As well as looking nationally at various jobs I have a cousin who works in psychometric testing and he is forever going to conferences in the far east. Due to psychometrics being closely related to recruitment he's looking into pulling a few strings for me and seeing what contacts he can make. I think Singapore/Malaysia/China might be too much of a cultrue shock for me though... Canada, Australia or New Zealand I would be well up for looking into as all those countries really interest me and I would love to visit them at some point in my life.

NZ I especially want to visit in 5 years time - British Lions tour there in 2017 and that has to be the 2 greatest rugby teams on the planet... no offence meant to an Aussie there but NZ have consistently been the best international team in the world for a larger percentage of time than any other country. Seeing England play NZ at Twickernham in 2001 was the greatest match I've ever been to, not least because we won by like 2 points :D it was such an action packed second half though and we were holding on just.

I think going on holiday though won't really solve a lot. I need some meaning back into my everyday life first. On a plus note I was talking to one of the younger guys at the boardgames club tonight who doesn't come down that regularly... might go out and meet a few people with him some time and I'm trying to persuade him to join a footy team with me as he's trying to lose weight and is football mad lol

Just stay away from queensland, the heat and humidity does funny things to your head. ;)

On a more serious note, I know how you feel. A few years ago I've spent half a year at home being unemployed. And it sucks. The main things are that you can get seriously tired from doing nothing and you get very good at wasting time. I'm impressed by the amount of job applications you manage to send out.

Do you let other people read your letters for you before you send them? Experience teached that other people always find a few things you've overlooked or offer a fresh perspective, which in turn increases your chances of getting an interview.

Also, if you're thinking about working abroad, have you given some thought to the Netherlands/Belgium? I know the weather is worse here then in Australia, but it's closer to home and everyone speaks english here too (and like in Ozzie, we too have a funny accent). I have a few collegues who only speak english (and hindi, but that's because I work in IT...). And, it's the region with the lowest unemployment rate in the EU.

What kind of job are you looking for. Or at least, what kind of job would you most like to have, since you'd probably accept any job at the moment.

Ideal job: Operational researcher - never going to get this though, despite my Maths degree specialising in operational research there are just too few of these jobs available.

Job I'd love: Data Analyst/Forecasting Analyst/Performance Analyst/Business Analyst

I'm actually starting to feel a little better after only a week! Losing my gf kinda forced me to make a few better friendships, I've contacted friends I've not spoken to in a long time, I've got to know a couple of the guys down at the boardgames club a bit better and I'm trying to mix in new circles... Best of all I've tidied my room and my car both of which have been a tip. While I've been feeling low I've not had the motivation to do it but the mess has been getting me down more, this morning I forced myself to do it and I feel much better for it!

I've come to feel quite annoyed with my ex actually, she's more or less admitting by wanting us to break up that our relationship had failed. I'd been saying there were things wrong for months and months but I kept trying to talk to her about things so that we could get better and she didn't ever want to talk about it and if we did it still didn't change anything. I'm annoyed that she gave up without trying to talk things through. I'm especially annoyed because she will have learned from all this and next relationship she has will probably be better, but it should be with me and looks like it won't.

I spoke to my GP yesterday and he's put me on antidepressants though I'm not sure if I really want to be taking them, we'll see how it goes. Hopefully I will be able to see a counsellor too but I've tried going down that road before and got fobbed off a bit... Anyway Monday I've managed to arrange to see an old friend after my job interview so that should cheer me up a bit.

Hey andrew that sucks! Sorry to hear that. I have also been through a bit of a rough patch recently so i know the feeling when the world
Feels like its going to hell around you. Quote that always keeps me going when I'm feeling down and having a rough patch:

"when you're going through hell, keep going."

-Winston Churchill

All the best man.

Just giving this thread a slight bump so more people can introduce themselves :) I, for one, really appreciate that the people on this site feel like sharing some of their personal lives as well!
