I've been away from this board and 4chan for several years now. I was just wondering if any of the old /soc/ialites are still floating around. I've seen one or two faces I recognize, and far too many pictures of Maxim, but that's about it.
Come out of the woodwork to say hi if any of you are still lurking,
an old namefag of no importance.
this was me, back in the day.
I am older, emptier, and hairier now.
Well there was an oldfags thread like idk a month ago and someone posted that Elton chick and was talking about how he used to spam futa, so I'm pretty sure it was him.
Castiel always seemed like a cool cat.
I always liked R-ant too even though he could be pretty obnoxious.
I'm not sure if I remember you or not. I mostly just remember the people who were like alllllwayyyys here.
That sure sounds like him, yeah. I never understood the whole Elton obsession.
I got along really well with r-ant, we used to skype and stuff, but damn right he could be obnoxious.
I was never as omnipresent as cas, nobz, haunter, trig, buu, kotz, and the like, but I still put wayyyyyy too much time into this board.
I have no clue where anyone is. I didn't get on here for years and then just started stopping in a few months ago.
Its not antwhere near as entertaining now. The circle jerkers are all really nice, which isn't any fun. Less landwhales, more dix. More and more robots all the time. Shits for the birds tb.h
Yea ge kinda did. I recall he used to do drugs but was now clean.
Last i heard of him he was into some chick here and he left soc for her apparently...like almost a year later i had a kik message from him saying hi but i saw it like 5 months later and by then he no longer had a kik
this board has been shit from its inception, but in the past there were occasional good threads. I know Cas lives in Japan now, and thats about it. And I think trig got laid, finally.
hmm, well I hope he's doing well. So many of the oldfags seem to have had relationships stemming from this board - including myself.
enh. My fiancee ran away, so that part is shitty. But I get to do work that I love, so that part is ok.
I can finally grow a decent beard, but my hair is thinning and my eyesight is slipping at an accelerated rate. In short, no different than anyone else really.
how about you?
I finally broke 100 lbs. I don't drink every day anymore and I quit doing real drugs. Even pot I only smoke on occasion. I like myself a lot more these days.
Still no career though, and I also am starting to have vision problems. Instead of losing my hair its all turning grey.
I got a new boyfriend recently, and he is pretty fucking great.
All in all life is good.
>I miss Nobz... and Cas.
I came here for the first time in months because I wanted to masturbate.
That's it really.
Hey, I'd prefer to go grey than lose it (I am greying too. When did 30 become the old 45?)
Good stuff on the drinking, drugs, weight loss and boyfriend. That's a pretty good streak that you're on. I'm sure the career part will follow suit soon enough, anon.
I was around from late 2012-2013. Used to have long hair.
oh i used to post in all of the threads! i was on /soc/ from the beginning of my transition to...i guess now? not so much now tho lol. i miss all the old posters.
thanks ^__^ ye i do look a lot diff
It's true. I'm living in Tokyo now with no real plan to return home and I've basically been fucking around unemployed for the last half year after collecting unemployment/autismbux. That ran out and I just rented a place with a girl I'm seeing in Shinjuku, but really I do nothing all day but study and read comics. Just turned 25 so I'm not in too much of a rush to pull my life together, all things considered it could be a lot worse.
Aaaaaand, I've found the only thing on this board worth bating to.
Weight gain** thanks though.
Is this real life?
Maybe I just don't recognize you. I do remember a realllly nice trap that posted everywhere. Always had different wigs. No idea on the name though.
bate to me bby lmaao
you look so familiar but i don't think we ever spoke
i used to have a ton of diff hair colors, but they weren't wigs so idk
I forget that you're a good deal younger than me I want to go to Japan and be a weeb for a while. Check out the sakura and stuff.
I got a Grateful Dead tattoo a while back - it makes me think of you sometimes, and then I feel weird.
what are you like 30 now
>Still being alive
I actually fixed my mental health up and quit watching cartoons. I think the two might be related.
Dying is so over-rated now.
If we spoke it was only a handful of times.
I think I had a crush on your transitioning friend(?) named Avery.
It's really awesome here, but it can be soul-crushing. I wouldn't trade it though. Sometimes I go through phases of hating it but then I remember I'm basically living what other people dream about. Plus I get to see yakuza daily and can eat sushi like it's fast food.
What I would kill for a fucking taco though.
wasn't the other bearded one prometheus or thor? i forget. altho i'm actually gonna chill with haunter next week so there's another namefag. also oh okie, then hi!! ye i had every hair color ever so that's prob why lol.
maybee. it was so long ago i barely remember. did yall talk lots or anything? aves is still one of my best friends actually.
I dunno there were a lot of bearded namefags like angry norse god and rory and lurking technically and some other people.
why the fuck do I still have these pictures
I don't even remember the context
Ive dealt with a reasonable amount of soul crushing, Im sure I could handle it. Maybe I will hop a plane over there. Hanami will be coming up in a couple of months, right? And I could go taco-free the rest of my life, easily.
Thanks, friend. I get a lot of comments on it.
I don't feel like flying to Hokkaido, only to violently maim a cow while avoiding the police and immigration authorities, but I admire your determination. Fairly certain I can't fly within or out of the country without my visa status being flagged and potentially being kicked out of the country for a number of years too.
Basically I'm an illegal alien without tacos.
That really shouldn't be a thing that exists.
Not really, just instagram friends. Thought she was beautiful though.
rip in piece
Like pubes on his face count kinda.
>Still got all my people folders
Keeping it for the rest of my life for memories deal with it.
Early April would be the best time to see it.
I think people spend a lot of money visiting for a week or two, almost as much as if you just rented a furnished monthly mansion (literally $30/day, cheaper than most hostels/share houses/airbnb's - the downside is online info's usually japanese-only). Americans get fucked over, no potential for working holiday visa, but I would say if you had a month or three to kill and $2k saved up, it wouldn't be a bad way to live. Summers can be unbearable though.
I remember that crush of yours now. I have my folders I haven't even touched in ages - it's better for me to pretend it doesn't exist but I can't bring myself to delete it.
She still has tumblr, right? I think I unfollowed nearly everyone and can't remember.
Ang is the one I was thinking of. Do you have the circle jerk gif with the butt fucking orgy?
And whatever happened to Rory? I liked that guy.
You look fantastic! You were always pretty but you've definitely aged well.
she is super beautiful!
he still posts every now and again. idk i talked to about a year ago? maybe a bit longer and he was very into craft beer. seemed like he was doing ok. also thank ^_^
No I don't think I do. I know what you're talking about though.
>you will never derail threads and make a bunch of people mad again
I was never good at much but I could sure pull a vidya discussion out of my ass at any given time
at least lurking an hero'd before seeing the disaster that was ds2
Summers unbearable how? Heat? I spend my summers excavating in Greece, so I can deal with heat. I've got a good deal saved up (yay cancelled wedding) so maybe something to look into somewhat seriously.
Markii (barnowl) and I were in a relationship for almost 2 years, just grew apart with the distance. She was thinking about visiting me this christmas/new years but it never came to fruition. She still has her tumblr, yeah, but doesn't use it too much anymore from what Ive seen.
Would I be wrong in assuming that was the cancelled wedding then?
Summers just suck because of the humidity, everyone really stays indoors because hell, work culture. I was jobless then and just miserable, no money to pay for air conditioning. Had to change my shirts like twice a day.
Summer festivals in Japan are one of my favorite things in the world though. They start a bit later in the year but I was going to a different one every week all summer, drunk off my ass the entire time.
>I spend my summers excavating in Greece
Man, I remember when you recommended that to me. I seriously considered it.
Beef isn't the problem, it's $10 for a 7 pack of tortillas and $8 for a small pack of cheese that makes mexican food a luxury here.
Yep. I remember toward the end of 'active' /soc/, he had posted a few times about his father coming home and giving him the ultimatum of either finding a proper job to stay where he was, or being forced to move back to his home country, IIRC. I think within a year after that was when he did it so I assume that was the reason why.
I found out through buu but I can't remember when she told me exactly.
no, the wedding was the girl I met after her. barnowl was seriously considering moving to canada with me though. She lives in Boston now. Im just really good at attracting women and then getting them to leave me once I make a commitment. Its a neat skill.
I remember you posting on your tumblr about some shows and festivals that I was seriously jelly about.
The archaeology gig is pretty awesome. Although I admit that I should really be much more fluent in Greek than I am at this point.
Yeah, I probably blowed way much more money than I should have on those concerts. I think I overdosed on seeing Boris too many times.
Godspeed You Black Emperor is playing here in a month or two and I'm crazy hype, even if I didn't give a damn about the new album. Just seeing them in Japan is cool.
I definitely should at least be able to speak more Japanese by now. I have this problem where my listening ability is off the charts, but I can't make original sentences on my own. Really limits me to only having full conversations with someone whose English listening is as good as my Japanese, or those who have just studied/live abroad anyways.
Ugh, its been years since I saw Boris, and I havent seen GYBE since before their hiatus. I did see Silver Mt. Zion somewhat recently, so I got a little Efrim fix.
My language skills seem to be similar to yours. My comprehension is good, but I have difficulty replying to people. Kind of hard in small towns with almost no english. There was a girl from Tokyo on the excavation this year so she taught me some Japanese vocab while I taught her some Greek. She was waifu material...Ayaka Kawazu...
