DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Hello everyone, anyone remember me?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is a tough message to write. Given my past standing in this community, and my abrupt leaving of it a few years ago, I'll understand if you guys have forgotten or no longer welcome me here. But, I owe you all an explanation for why I had to take an impromptu hiatus from DM, and then ask your forgiveness:

 

In 2012 I had moved back to Seattle and started a job there that gave me a lot of freedom to contribute often during the day. Unfortunately that stopped being the case, so I was only allowed access to the site after work. Then a string of issues with room mates using my rent money for things other than rent kept me moving throughout the year until 2013, when my father passed away and I effectively gave up trying to stay on DM, Facebook or much else. I kept going for another year or two up there, but in 2015 I took a job back in Portland, OR and moved back down here, only for my grandmother to pass away a month later. I'm not asking for sympathy, just explaining my situation. 

Following all of that, I finally began to settle into life here, therapy helping me through some of the worst of it, and things have somewhat started to improve. I wanted to come back so many times and just explain what happened or see how people were. I just hadn't felt ready to be a contributing member again, nor to face the questions or judgements. Not that I think poorly of any of you, but it's human nature when someone disappears to wonder how, why, etc. 

So, here we are in a slightly more optimistic 2016. As I said, I have missed many of you greatly, and would love to be welcomed back if at all possible, in whatever diminished role available, and would like to ask you guys to forgive me for deserting previously. 

I hope everyone's done very well, and optimistically I look forward to a future mafia game or something.

All the best,

TRL - Jesse

I think people go on hiatuses (is that really the plural?) all the time, and as long as there wasn't any bad blood I don't see why you wouldn't be welcomed back with open arms :)

I don't believe there was, but I was technically staff at the time, so I'm sure that's especially frowned-upon. Still, I'm hoping you're right!

Heh, yes, my nickname of "TRL" stands for The Random Lightie, so if you're of the dark, I expect some bad blood.

    • The educational system in South Africa is the same as in many countries. I want to talk about what kind of educational system is in America. Kindergartens are not very popular in America. Parents prefer that their children study with their nannies or with them at home. Children go to primary school at 5 years. Children graduate from primary school at 11 or 12 years old. Children who are smart and who study for each class one year, finish school at 11 years old. Children who have difficulties with learning, and who repeat their studies in a certain class, finish school at 12 years old. Children go to secondary school at 11 or 12 years old and children finish high school at 14 or 15 years old. A high school has a duration of 3 years. For graduation from school, a student must write a graduation paper with which the college essay writing service www.paperial.com can help and a student must pass exams which belong to different fields: such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, and so on. After a student finishes school, he or she can go to college where he or she will study for 2 years or may go to college or university in which he or she will study for 4 years. In order to enter a college in which students study for two years, or to enter a college or university in which students study for 4 years, a student must pass the entrance exams and have a card in which there are good grades received at school. After graduating from a college or university which obliges a student to study for 4 years - a student can enroll in a magistracy and study there for 2 years. In conclusion, a master can study 3–6 years in order to obtain a doctor’s degree.
    • You can’t touch the source without reaching through the taint. 
    • "if the number of qualifying candidates is too unwieldy for a single debate, the Democratic National Committee said it’ll hold primary debates on multiple nights if necessary, assigning candidates randomly to the two debates"   That opens up the possibility of a lot of mischief.      " 1 percent support in three national polls or polls of early primary states, or raise money from a minimum of 65,000 donors from 20 states, including at least 200 unique donors per state. "   What polls? Do candidate polls count? Who decides if a state poll is worthy of inclusion? Do polls which have more then a 4.5% magin of error count (many early polls are at or over this level although they are statistically unreliable)? How do you include candidates with one or two percentage support if the margin of error in even the best polls are above 2.5%?
