Hello!

Post by Balsa »

Hello! Not sure why I decided to check here, but this definitely brings back memories. How are you all? Is there some kind of SWE-community somewhere, like on Discord or something? I'd love to chat and catch-up!

Heya Balsa!

No idea if there's an official discord, but my username is EyesofAvalon#9066. Anyone can hit me up there

Hey Star, hey Archangel (Nathaniel, right?) !

Long time no talk :) How are you all?

I'm very much alive, if barely. Kids. There's a reason why adults are exhausted all the time, have white hair, and have lost their hearing... :evil:

I too have migrated mostly to Discord: Highlighter#2873.

I'll add you, Star!

I have a Discord, but I use it so rarely I don't remember what the account is. I can't keep up with the whippersnappers and their newfangled appetizers.

Kids I understand, though. Got three of those now myself.

Lots of life upheaval for me right now (new house after 7 years, new job after 8 ) but it's all good. Just hectic. You?

I’ve got a 6 and nearly-3 year old. The second thinks he’s the first born and has the attitude to match. It’s crazy at times. :lol:

I went through similar upheaval a couple years ago. A job promotion/lateral move and a new house, all before the pandemic. It was actually great timing since we had more space for the kids during lockdown.

It’s all good, as you said!

Wish I had more time and energy for writing though. I do miss that hobby!

It's soooo satisfying to see all you 'kids' finally getting to where I was back in the days of Exodus being very active. LOL

My “kiddo” is turning 21 next year. She’s now older than when I started writing on SWG :lol: .... :cry:

Talk about young brats :oldrazz:

No! No way! 21?!

… and 21 makes logical sense given that I joined this place some 21 years ago.

Ugh I feel old. Not as old as Nich though…

The only thing I have to show for myself is a wolf tattoo and a lot of gray hair

I have two grown kids, daughter (married) 27, and and my son 31 who's getting married, and lastly my youngest daughter is 16, driving and will be a Junior this year. So that is what really took me away from Exodus, as you all are experiencing. Life really does grab hold at a certain age, and all the responsibilities that it brings.

For whatever reason, I’ve always envisioned you as an older grandfather type. Not sure why, perhaps it was your avatar. :lol:

It’s good to see your kids doing well and mostly all grown. Given their age, I take it you’re not 80 but closer to late-40s.

And Nich, you’re absolutely right. There is a direct correlation with having kids and the decline of my hobbies. :lol:

It is good to see you too Balsa. :) I will be 57 this year. I actually look closer now to my avatar, than perhaps ever. My beard is almost all gray now, and my hair is like a reverse mountain, white on the sides and it's moving upwards rapidly. LOL
