What We Played | August 20 – 26

by Jennifer KibbleAugust 27, 2012

This is a weekly segment where we share what games we are currently playing for our readers to get to know us a bit better. Said games can range from retro to current and from casual to FPS games. If we’re playing it, we’ll share it. Please feel free to comment with what you’re playing or your opinions on the games that we’re involved with.

Nick P: I’ve been playing the Ghost Recon Online beta. For anyone familiar with F2P shooters, GRO offers a different change of pace by emphasizing position-based approaches to defeating the enemy. There are plenty of suspenseful moments that resemble an Old West shootout or a paintball match, but there are occasional all-out firefights as well. I’m also particularly impressed by the deep level-up system and stat-tracking capabilities. GRO is shaping up to be a worthy addition to the F2P market. (I’ll be writing a GRO beta impressions article next!)

Matthew: The New Super Mario Bros. 2! Coins for days! Coins for days!

Jeff: Gran Turismo 5 is a pretty big game, but I’m actually pretty motivated to get as many cars as I can. The driving feels much tighter than Gran Turismo 4, and the cockpit view is much more comfortable. The work that Polyphony put into GT5 really shows. I also finished Spider-Man 3, out of some strange obligation to complete all 42 or so missions. Oddly, the Lizard subplot is very similar to the plot of both The Amazing Spider-Man film and game. Finally, I finished Portal 2 and immediately replayed it in Developer Commentary mode. It’s a lot of fun to listen to some of the most talented designers in the industry talk about how to make their game the most polished, intuitive, and fun product they can make.

Joel: Finally completed Mass Effect 3 and have been continuing to play Diablo 3 as a Monk. As well as playing Persona 3 on my Vita.

Logan: Guild Wars 2 headstart began this weekend so it has been nonstop Guild Wars for me! It’s been amazing and the problems it has had have been so small in comparison to other MMO launches that it is just awesome how well ArenaNet has done so far. Love the game and am getting the Collector’s Edition here on Tuesday. Super stoked for that.

Jen: Had a little bit of playtime with SWTOR but the majority of my gaming was with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. Sadly, my trip to Seattle for PAX was fast forward thanks to a pending hurricane/tropical storm, so my time with FoC was cut short. I want to play more!

Jake: While everyone is busy with their fancy Guild Wars 2, I’m preparing for the Mists of Pandaria launch. Recruited one character to 80, about to start another. Free level 80 monk, here I come!

Enis: Started my first run through of Borderlands as a Hunter. Love it! Finished the game last night and starting all of the DLC today. Played some Mass Effect 3 with John, had a blast. Can’t wait for the Leviathan DLC to come out Tuesday!

    Okay I “was” a virgin I am only in my very early 20’s
    last week I went to see my boyfriend and I stayed in a Hotel. He asked if he could stay to … it was a king sized bed, I didn’t want him to but he had to drive a lot and it was late at night so i just let him ( stupid me) I told him I didn’t want to have sex. ( we ended up four playing) just touching ..etc. (I don’t know how i let that happen )
    it was the 3rd night and we were touching and i turned over and I was half sleeping it was 3 am! he was fingering me .. i was relaxed and tired … (I had told him NO INTERCOURSE) all the sudden 0-0 ! I noticed his dick was a little bit inside! ( i was laying on my side my back facing him )I got pissed! and jumped out of bed ,cried and yelled at him. Took me 15 minutes to go back to bed he tried to comfort me and i bit his hand (drew blood) I asked him how long he was in, the next morning he said maybe 1 minute ( I don’t even know how i didn’t notice for one minute…. maybe i was sleeping and woke up, I do that a lot where I fall asleep ..) He wasn’t in all the way and it takes him forever to c**
    I am worried about pre-c** ….

    I wasn’t on birth control, no condom, no permission. He didn’t ejaculate at all.
    I know you can still get prego ? now this happened on July 4th 3am – 5 am.
    Of course I am mad and I took Plan B one step, after 60 hours it says with in 1-5 days…
    I know it works better the sooner you take it …….. ( I wish i had taken it earlier )

    i started my period June 20th to June 26th you don’t ovulate for 12-14 days after your period
    I had “sex” 8 days after the last day of my period…. and I took a plan B 60 hours after my period … he didn’t cum…he didn’t stick it all inside and he wasn’t in long
    I took an ovulation calculator and it said I am ovulating between July 14- 30th

    can you get pregnant with a dry penis?
    can you get pregnant when you are NOT ovulating ?
    what percentage do you think plan b worked after 60 hours?

    I am very stressed. I am not happy that this happened. I am depressed that I let him even stay in my room and I was stupid.
    ( I know posting this isn’t going to change anything but telling someone makes me less stressed , I don’t want to tell my friends.)
    I am just stressed waiting for my period that (should happen July 25th – August 4th?) its never normal period and plan b is suppose to make it off ….
    ahhhhh

    arrgh ! ^_^

    basicaly mate, i spent over 1 hour to CAREFULLY work out the answer to this question.

    bottom line is – i worked it out to be 41, off the top of my head.

    as it pans out, the answer is indeed 43.

    but i came feckin close ! ^_^

    here is the ANSWER i tried to post just now (EDITED…only it wouldn’t feckin post, took me straight to a GAY erotic page of ‘blankness’ and utter non meaning of gayness…)

    so here it is.

    it started in August 1992…be as accurate as you can Deano, reason being – lot of pre-16 year olds on here aren’t aware that when you say ‘1992’ you mean 1992/93 season (so it started in August , and finished in summer 93.

    my my…what times those were, those were the days as they say.

    i remember summer 92 well, the summer before the FIRST Premier League began.

    Leeds were the defending title champions…we’d won the FA CUP that year and I think United had won the League Cup that year (1991/92 …then called the ‘rumbelows cup’ .

    heh my dumb *** was a tender 13 yrs old.

    all i feckin did was play sega/nintendo/amiga , kick a ball about with me mates at the local park – swear at them when playing our 5-asides, slumber back home in sweltering heat – DYING to reach the refridgerator for a COOOOOLD glass of ‘fluid’ (anything did back then – key was, to get it ‘down you FAST, like Lucozade ! ^_^ )

    sorry, i got carried away reminicing on them days.

    how many diff clubs have played in it ?

    (chelsea, arsenal, united, liverpool) = 4 (none of these have got relegated since the prem started

    (spurs, villa, blackburn, west ham) = 4 + 4 = 8

    92/93 teams = * boooo! —>’ Manchester United’ ^_^ *, Aston Villa, Norwich City, Blackburn Rovers, QPR, -!-Liverpool -!-, Sheffield Wednesday, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Wimbledon, lol ‘Everton…^_^, Sheffield United, Coventry City, Ipswich Town, Leeds United,
    Southampton , Oldham Athletic, Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest

    working out way forward and looking at 93/94 season, we will now only include the teams that got promoted into this leage, since these were new teams.

    93/94 = Newcastle, West Ham and Swindon

    20 teams from 92/93 played in the EPL.
    17 teams from 92/93 season, remained put – 3 went down – 3 came up.

    so up to 93/94 – 23 different teams had played in the EPL

    94/95 – 3 teams came up – Palace, Forrest and Lecister city. Palace and Forrest had already played in the 1st epl season, leicester therefore were the ‘new team’.

    so up to 94/95 – 23+1 = 24, 24 different teams had played in the premier league. (god im gonna muck this up somewhere down the line….i’ll do my utmost LFC best for you all ^_^ )

    * wipes sweat off forehead *

    now , in 95/96- # of teams in the epl was reduced to 38 (previously 42). so only 2 teams came up.

    Middlsebrough and Bolton Wanderers.

    neither two teams had been in the epl before, so these were 2 new teams.

    so up to 95/96 – a total of 24+2 = 26 , 26 (different) teams had played in the EPL since it began.

    now, in 96/97, 3 teams came up. They were : Derby County
    Leicester City and Sunderland. Of these 3, only 2 were ‘new teams to have played in ePl.

    so up to 96/97 a total of 26 + 2 = 28, 28 (different) teams had played in EPL since it began ?

    97/98 – 3 teams came up. they were – barnsley, bolton, palace. bolton and palace hjad already played in the prem before – only barnsely were newcomers. so ONE new team had joined epl teams list.

    so up to 97/98 – a total of 28+1 = 29, 29 (different) clubs had played in the epl.

    98/99 – saw no new teams make a debut in the Prem I THINK…

    so up to 1998/99 (uniteds treble season…) 29 different clubs had played in epl.

    99/2000 – 3 teams came up, only 2 of these were ‘new clubs’ to epl. they were bradford city and watford.

    so up to 99/2000 – 29 + 2 = 31, 31 different clubs had played in EPL ?

    2000/01 – no new team had made a breakthrough into the EPL, with teams who got promoted into the epl in 2000/01 had previously already been in the prem. So up to 2000/01 it was still 31.

    2001/02 saw 3 teams come up. (For the first (and so far, only) time in the history of the Premier League, all three promoted teams avoided relegation – Fulham, Bolton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers. – So it was FULHAM FC, who were the ‘newboys’ to the EPL that year.

    so up to 2001/02 – a total of 31+1 = 32, 32 different clubs had played in the EPL.

    2002/03 …3 teams came up – they were : west brom, man city and birmingham.

    only 2 of those teams were ‘newboys’ to the EPL, they were west brom and bingham.

    so up to 2002/03 – a total of 32 + 2 = 34, 34 diff clubs had playe din the ePL ?

    2003/04 – 3 teams came up into the EPL that yaer, they were : Portsmouth, Leicster and wolves.

    of these 3, only 2 were newboys to the PREM – they we
    f***k me its still not shwoing the ENTIRE answer, as a question XD

    this is absurdly bent.

    i said 41, but its 43. give me the feckin 10 points lol.

    A total of 43 clubs have played in the Premier League from its inception in 1992 and the end of the 2009–10 season. Two other clubs (Luton Town and Notts County) were signatories to the original agreement that created the Premier League, but were relegated prior to the inaugural Premier League season and have not subsequently returned to the top flight. For a list of all clubs past and present see List of Premier League clubs and an amalgamated table can be found at All-time FA Premier League table. For a list of winners and runners-up of the Premier League since its inception, and top scorers for each season, see List of English football champions.
    deaaaaaaaaaanooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    DUDE…

    mate ? :-)

    um cmon.

    please….i feckin spent ages when I sat there, going thru season afte rseason working out which teams got promoted etc.

    i obviously cocked up somewhere, BUT – remember i put the ‘effort’ into answering your question.

    if on the basis of ‘who gave it their all’ in answering my question, gets 10 points – i do ! ^_^

    so cmon now – hand those 10 points over. ^_^

    **My cycle VS. Sex**

    Okay, now I have a MAJOR PROBLEM… now I met a beautiful man 6 months ago online and we’ve been sexually active with each other ever since then. However for the past 6 months I AM YET TO UNDERSTAND WHAT’S GOING ON. Check this out (the dates).
    –May 20, 2008: We met for the first time (a date) & had sex.
    –May 23, 2008: On my cycle
    –June 20, 2008: On my cycle
    –June 22, 23 & 24, 2008: We had sex
    –July 1, 2008: We had sex
    –July 16, 2008: On my cycle
    –Aug 12, 2008: On my cycle but NO sex at all in August
    –Sept 7, 2008: On my cycle
    –Sept 8, 2008: We had sex
    –Oct 4, 2008: On my cycle
    –Oct 6, 2008: We had sex
    –Oct 31, 2008: On my cycle
    –Nov 3, 2008: He’s coming up here (expected sex day)
    –Nov 26, 2008: Will put me at my 28th cycle day to come on. However, I’ll out of town Thanksgiving weekend sharing a hotel room (with my sister/ friend) in the same building where he’ll be but in seperate rooms. There’s a great possibility that we’ll have sex again and I’ll be on again for the 6th time.

    What I’m saying is that for the 5th time IN A ROW (come Nov 3, 2008 night) we’ll have sex and I’ll be on. Coincidentally he just happens to come ‘around’ everytime that I’m on and it’s crazy. The last time we were together (Oct 6) he said something about it; “Every time I’m here you’re always on your period.” I’m like “yeah I don’t know but that’s crazy.” My sis was laughin like “that is hilarious everytime you’re always on.” It’s gotta be impossible that he’d monitor or memorize my cycles as he don’t know the exact start dates so I wouldn’t say that he’s coming here purposely. I don’t understand. You mean to tell me for the 5th time I’ll be on again and we’ll be having sex? Then not to make mention of that counting Thanksgiving weekend will make 6 in a row? My sis called me tonight like “Maaan, (kinda chuckling)… you’re gonna be pissed”…. (I’m scared nervous not knowing what she’s bout to say). Then she said, “For the fifth time…” I cut her off and said, “What?? He’s coming up here?” She said “Yeah”. In shock I’m like “when?” She said, “In a couple hours.” I’m like, “Are you serious? Don’t play with me O hell nall for real?! Oh my gosh!” I just cannot believe this. :( We (he/ I) just don’t know that this would happen every time it’s unexpected but I’m pretty pissed to be honest. It was never a problem for either of us the first couple times but 5 times and its coming up in conversation as he’s asked why I’m always on.

    Surprisingly when he gets here tomorrow he’s gonna trip out to see another tamp hanging out and won’t even know that I’ll be on AGAIN!! This is some bullsh*t :( I feel like crying! I mean I’ll NEVER turn down sex from him for nothing. I’m sure you guys are wondering how come he won’t come when I’m NOT on? Well he works traveling alot so whenever he gets a break or free time to come up here then that’s when he comes and if it so happens that I’m on when he does come then hey… I don’t have control over when my cycle is in effect. For 6 years (since the pregnancy of my first son who’s 6 1/2 yrs old) I’ve always kept track of my cycles by putting them in my mini calendar planner. That way in case of pregnancy or if something else arises I can always go back to see the date. But this is really something. I’ve never experienced anything like this before.

    Question is…. How come everytime he’s up here and we have sex I’m ALWAYS on my cycle?
    He’s 39/ I’m 30. Thanks for lookin out ya’ll but please don’t be posting NO STUPID SHYT, just answer the question w/o all the bullshyt.
    I do not do the birth control thing.
    LOOK GRACE, don’t start with me okay mf I’m NOT a dam child or teen I’m 30 yr old woman. Yo a** NEVER read that I was 23 ok?!! I know how old I am so don’t get my shyt twisted with somebody else. U’ve been mistaken. UH GET IT RITE OK! I was born 9/4/78 and I have a 6 yr old son… uh please… don’t f**k shyt up, like I said I’m 30 n he’s 38, I was 23 seven yrs ago.

    Seems like you missed math class cuz you can’t count. I told ya’ll don’t post no MF bogus shyt if you do I’m gettin at you. Be nice n I’ll be nice.

    The Montreal Canadiens have 2 goalkeepers who really want to start for a team in the next year, They have Carey Price, and Jaroslav Halak.

    Jaroslav Halak :: 24 years old (To be 25 on May 13th) was the 271st overall pick of the 2003 Entry Draft, since playing for the Lewiston Maneiacs of the QMJHL, he has gone 6 seasons with a winning record, and has maintained a .919 save percentage over half a decade which is outstanding, he is also quite possibly the reason the Canadiens made the playoffs and are even in the second round of the NHL playoffs, he has said in numerous interviews he wants to be a starting goaltender in the NHL and wherever that is offered, whether its in Montreal or somewhere else, he will go. This year, Halak is 26-13-0-5, had a 2.40 gaa, with a .924 save percentage.

    Carey Price :: 22 years old (August 16th is his birthday) he will be 23 to begin next year, he was the 5th overall pick used by the Canadiens in the 2005 Entry Draft, he had 2 good first years with the Habs, going 24-12-3, and 23-16-10 getting them into the playoffs both times. This year he went
    13-20-5 and perhaps if he goalied one more match the Habs might have not been in the playoffs, Not to mention when he does make the playoffs, he is 5-11 which is not consistent at all. with an .896 Save Percentage and 3.15 goals per game let by. Price is also the culprit of having a bit of an ego, using a 5th pick on a guy can do that, he wants to start, and teams like New Jersey have been interested in trying to get him because they want to give Brodeur some resting time during the year and for when he retires they can insert a goalie right away.

    Price has reason to want to start, But will Montreal keep him and make him start in Montreal or deal him somewhere else. Halak also has a reason to start, but the Habs have made really weird moves in the past and we never know what’s going through the minds of their front office.

    So the Question is

    Price or Halak IN MONTREAL
    Price or Halak OUT OF MONTREAL
    Who is better in the long run, both being so young and still having at least 10+ years in them.
    Who would take a chance on Price
    Who would take a chance on Halak
    If given the starting role for a team like the Toronto Maple Leafs or Edmonton Oilers, how many wins would Halak pile up?
    If given the starting role for a team like the Toronto Maple Leafs or Edmonton Oilers, how many wins would Price pile up?

    Those are my questions for you

    I met a guy almost 2 yrs ago,we’ve dated for 7 months. I know its not long but I fell in love. The relationship didnt last, I would always text him alot and bug him to see me more then once a wk, I found out he’s a photographer who takes naked pics of girl at his house, getting over him was really though. Last time I saw him was in august we spent the night together. I told him the reason why I was texting alot is because I had fallen in love. Im 26 and this is the first time I ever fell and loved a guy this much. When I left his house last august I text him to please stop seeing me because im torturing myself going to see him when I know he’ll never fall in love w me. He replied that he was also seeing some other girl which hurt me so bad but I knew it was coming. Anyways I still kept texting him once a month and writing long text telling him how I felt etc. I know that’s pathetic trust me but for some reason I couldn’t get over him. He played me And im not ugly either. Not to sound dumb but I’ve been told I was the prettiest girl in my state. I haven’t txt him in 3 mo so few days ago I text him:hey I miss u,id appreciate it if u could still be my friend idk why u dislike me so much. I haven’t heard back from him. Last night at one am a girl called me from his phone telling me im an ugly b**ch and he doesn’t want my ugly ass and that they’re getting married and she also said she also said I need to stop sending him nude pics!! So I replied ok good luck,and I don’t take nude pics. She called me 20 times so I finally answered and she called me all kinds of names. Being trashy! Saying u want his d**k and stuff like that. She said I was a psychotic b**ch. I told her she’s ghetto b**ch and that if she doesn’t stop calling me ill go over and beat her ass! I’. What really hurt me is that he was there too. He could’ve told me himself he didnt want me to text him not her! And he wanted to see me 4 mo ago. Am I psycho? Had I known he had a gf I wouldve nevr text
    I know it was immature that I text him alot. But I have no idea when he got a new girlfriend! I would’ve never text him had I know that. What hurts is he could’ve told me and not have this chick call me at one am. Plus she could’ve just said hey im his new gf please don’t text him anymore or something. Thank u all for answering!

    I’ve had quite a few, but I’ll only describe a few, they are taken from a journal entry:
    (June 26, 2009) [20 days before he passed away]
    Michael Jackson came to visit and for some weird reason he was going to sleep in Mom and Dad’s closet (they have a pretty big closet). At first I had him sign 3 of my MJ CD’s, but I couldn’t find the rest. So he went to change his outfit and we went for a walk (me, my sister, and Michael). He seemed to physically be in the Dangerous era. As we were walking, we were playing a game where Michael would sing part of a song, his songs only, and then I would complete the lyrics and guess the song title. The dream ended with Michael singing “Stranger in Moscow” and me singing, “Kremlin’s shadow belittling me, Stalin’s tomb won’t let me be”. Then I woke up!

    (June 26, 2009) [day of passing]
    Summary: I dreamed that I went to Michael Jackson’s casket viewing and I met Janet Jackson there. As I walked up to look at Michael and say my final goodbyes, I realized that it wasn’t Michael at all, but his look-alike: Navi. So I yelled my discovery to everyone in the room, and chaos began. the end.

    (August 13, 2009) [16 days before his 51st birthday]
    I was at my cousin’s quinceanera, and Michael showed up so we all began doing the thriller dance together.

    (August 21, 2009) [6 days before his 51st birthday]
    I dreamed that it was the first day of school and already I had a lot of work to do, but our computer teacher gave us a wonderful surprise: Michael Jackson!
    he performed: Like A Virgin, Billie Jean, and some other song.
    I didn’t finish my work until he was almost done with the last song and this other girl was pretending to be a big fan so he was putting a lot of attention on her and I got jealous so I started spitting out every and any trivia that I knew of Michael and I told him I was so obsessed with him that my sister was annoyed at his music because I played it too much around the house. He thought I was weird and he started walking out because he had to go and I got so frustrated that he didn’t pay any attention to me that I started crying. I woke up crying. :(

    What could all these dreams end up meaning? any explanation would be helpful.
    if you got too lazy to read the dreams: i have a lot of dreams where I meet michael and I am truly obsessive over him in each of them and either he or someone else think I’m weird for it. I usually end up waking up at the climax of the dream.

    This is probably going to be long to give accurate amount of information so you can help, just bare with me…
    i just turned 26yrs old,
    i have PCOS have had it since i was around 19,
    from age 11-19 i had regular every month on the dot periods,
    been pregnant twice, 1st loss i had at age 17 (2003), and second loss a stillborn son i had at age 23 (2009)(20 weeks gestation) ,
    no living children,.. so since my age of 19 roughly my periods would come every 2-3 months, sometimes would regulate for a few months out of nowhere,
    longest i have gone without a period without a pregnancy was 6 months!! (doctor wouldn’t research why this was happening until i had gone 12 months without a period (which i didnt) as then it’s considered early menopause..) that was late 2007- early 2008, ..
    December 2008 was when i conceived my son (who was stillborn), after my son was born, my periods were back to roughly 2-3 months again, mostly the same in 2010,
    this year has been a bit different, pretty much have had regular periods around the same time every month, (31days, 34 days, 43days,50days) you get the picture…
    so they regulated randomly again.. me and my partner (we have been together since 2007 but known eachother 11yrs) don’t have intimacy often, hardly ever, so when my periods would be late, i wasn’t concerned about a pregnancy because there was no chance with no sex…
    but recently since September, we have been having frequent sex (after September 12th)..
    my last period was August 12th, it was expected to come again 26th September,
    didn’t show up so i thought it must just be late,
    had pregnancy/period symptoms for a few weeks,
    so tested on the 8th Oct to see for sure as period still was a no show, was negative,
    waited a week and a half, still no period to tested 19th Oct, still negative,
    had a blood test for HCG on 28th October, Negative,
    it’s now 7th November & STILL no period…
    the symptoms are on and off, breast tenderness, headaches, stomach cramps (sometimes left or right or both), shoulder pains, bloated, back pain, moody,peeing all the time,trouble sleeping…
    waiting for an ultrasound to check what’s going on (like i said i have PCOS so i have ovarian cysts, but they have never played up the whole time i’ve had them) so their checking on that for the ultrasound,…
    i’ll probably have that next week as it hard to get an appointment when you want,
    just sick of all this waiting to see what’s going on and want more advice than friends & family..
    is it even possible i am still pregnant even though the HPT and blood tests are negative?
    I am on day 88 of my cycle now, just really hoping this isn’t also one of those 6 months till a period again,
    it is an emotional rollercoaster!! i’d love advice, prediction on what it is & information thank you xx and sorry for too much information…

    I met Jay late January 2010 while I was still 16 years old. I might as well tell you that he was 26 years old then because it plays a major part in the story. He turned out to be my friends older brother and what attracted me to him at first was that he was drawing. I am an artist also, but my skills come no where close to matching up with his. Normally, I wouldn’t go for a guy that is so ahead of me in age but we got to talking and he was just so fascinating and talented. We started talking and hanging out a lot and in March 2010 we kissed for the first time.

    He asked me not to tell anyone because obviously he was embarrassed about my age. Between March and April I still saw him all the time and we would also kiss some more. Then at the end of April 2010 (which is the month I also turned 17) he met a 20 year old girl that he became crazy about and they started dating. He told me that he liked me and that if he were 17 again he would date me in a heartbeat, but because of my age things could just never work out.

    I started to avoid him by talking to him less and not seeing him anymore, but I just couldn’t let him go so easily. He loves Bram Stoker’s Dracula and back when we first started talking, he told me that if one of us found the movie then we will watch it together.

    I found the movie in Mid-May 2010 and I had to watch it with him. So while he was still dating the other girl, I went over to watch it with him and by the end of it we just started kissing. His girlfriend found out that I was over there but not about the kiss and sent me an angry message. To be honest, I was sort of flattered that she would be threatened by me because she’s so attractive. I told Jay that she sent me a message and he called me so I could read it to him. He told me that I shouldn’t feel bad and that she was crazy and possessive and that he was going to break up with her. So, all this time I believed that they broke up because of me.

    I lost touch with him over the summer because I was beginning to like him too much and I didn’t want to get hurt again but in August 2010 we reconnected and it became a sort of thing that we would see each other every saturday to talk, eat dinner, and kiss.

    October 2010, I told my friend how things were starting to go beyond kissing. Not sex though, I was a virgin and still am. Then she responded to me by saying that Jay has an STD. I was very upset and felt intrusive knowing this, whether it was true or not. I felt guilty that someone else had told me, so on one of our saturdays I spilled all the very personal things that I had never told him before. After I was finished, I told him that someone told me that he had an STD and asked if it was true.

    He told me that it was possible, that he had never shown symptoms of it but a girl he had dated in his late ‘teens had it. That was actually why him and his girlfriend from April-May broke up. Jay said that she was much more aggressive than girls he was used to and they had sex before he could tell her. When she found out she was very angry that he could have given it to her and dumped her. He said that the reason he didn’t tell me was because we can’t have sex but if we could then he would have gotten tested and told me. That was the last time I really saw and spoke to him.

    I graduated from High School early, so he and I go to the same college. From Oct 2010 and to this day, I see him around all the time but don’t really say anything except a passing “Hi, how are you?”
    I still get butterflies in my stomach everytime I see him and even though I havent been close to him in about 6 months, I like him so much that I can’t even stand it. My 18th birthday is today and i’m wondering if I should say anything to him, to try and reconnect or something

    What I really would like to know is what people think about this.

    Hello for the 4th time!

    I had my auditions on July 25 and it was very unbelievable and shocking, because I
    thought they were on August 1. I had my Singing and Dancing auditions on July 25
    and I had my Acting and Modeling auditions on July 26. Before I actually ask the
    question again, I want to share with you guys my experience and what I did at the
    SM building before and after my auditions.

    It was very freaky when I entered the SM building. Sadly I didn’t get to meet SNSD
    but I met 2PM and F(x). It was also meeting them because I got to takes tons of
    pics with my phone and I got all their autographs. They really helped and encouraged
    me to do my best in my auditions. I then met the manager (director) of SM and we just
    had 60 min greeting, talking kinda thing. He asked me a few questions like why do you
    want to audition for SM? and he asked if I had any specialties. OMG you could not
    believe the amount of people I saw there! There were tons, probably at least 500,000
    people or more. I was very amazed and shocked. It was so squishy and crowded with
    the amount of ppl and it was also really noisy. I then had to wait for at least 75 mins
    and it seem to take forever! I met 2 girls who were also auditioning for SM and one was
    the same age as me and then other was 11 yrs old. We spoke to each other a lot and I
    also got their email and I took some pics with them (Amazing how close friends you
    can make in 70 – 75 mins). Once 75mins was over, they called out my number (it was
    embarrassing and my number was 93). I then entered the audition rooms and I saw a
    big stage and a table. I met the 3 really kind judges and then we had to sort out some
    paper work. They asked what my name was and they told me I was auditioning for
    Singing first up. Before I started my Singing auditions, they warmed me up (doing
    special singing exercises that will get the singing voice more better) and they actually
    tested me on my singing skills and they asked me to sing the Do Re Mi Fa song. I
    was very nervous and my heart was beating very fast. After I calmed down, they said
    that the Singing auditions a up to 2 mins. So I sang Poker face and they loved it.
    I was so relived after I finished the Singing auditions (Although there we 3 more
    auditions coming up) and then the judges commented and made some feedback.
    I’m not going to share the other 3 auditions with you guys but it was similar.

    For Dancing we had to do a freestyle and we had to bring our own CD’s.
    For Acting we had to do a 20 min (max) play and try to impress the judges.
    For Modeling we got dressed up and we had to model up to 100 poses.
    If you modeled 100 poses (quite impossible, unless your a pro) then you’ll get
    accepted for modeling straight away but it has to be great poses.
    You also had to be at least over 150cm to audition for modeling.
    Luckily I ate Calcium 3 weeks before my auditions and I am now 151cm! YAY!
    I was aiming to do 70 poses but I did 65 instead which sucks! DAMN *sigh*
    The posing went for ages!! During you auditions, no one is watching but the judges.
    We had to pay $50 in South Korean money (won) for each auditions which means
    it cost us $200 all together (in wons), so we had to pay for auditions.
    So if any of you guys out there a planning to audition for SM (or any other korean
    companies), you should start practicing and preparing because the auditions a really
    hard. You have to be REALLY talented and your appearance also has to be good.
    Mum told me to wear a little bit of makeup but I wanted to come looking natural.
    My family had to wait outside (in a special room) while I was auditioning.

    So that’s just my experience in the auditions, sorry I couldn’t tell you guys more.
    There were so funny and awesome times in the audition.
    So the question is “How long does it take for SM to reply after the auditions?”.
    I am asking this question because it’s been 8 days and they haven’t replied yet.
    Does this mean didn’t get in??!?!?!?! OMG! i’d be devastated if I don’t get in, i’ll probably
    audition again and again until I get in. Sorry if this was too long. I wanted to share with
    you guys what happened while I was at the SM Building and while I was auditioning.
    Meeting 2PM and F(x) was the best experience I ever had in my life! I was actually
    crying, it was like a dream come true. Never give up. ^.^

    Hi,

    This is how it begins:

    I am a 26 years old man/boy (whatever is the right word). I work. I joined a dance class (since this is my passion) recently. Now, I am straight and I don’t look at every aspect with the goggles of s*x. There’s a 15 years old boy in the class who is a really good dancer. Incidentally, we are in the same batch. We dance thrice a week for an hour together, and that batch has two other girls, who are that boy’s age and the three of them are school-friends.

    Our dance class group (around 20 of us) had been to an overnight excursion, where all of us enjoyed, played, laughed, enjoyed. This was in June-end of 2008. There, I don’t know why I started liking him as a friend. After we returned too we didn’t talk too much, because he’s a quiet person, and I am also very very quiet a person – at least with new people.

    Then came an event, where in we all had to dance together in a close someone’s wedding, where we practiced together, and I started liking him more. It was only after the event that I joined Facebook, and was new to it. Added him as a friend, and talked a few general things. I liked him much much more, but still was not aware if he’s comfortable with me as a friend.

    I used to send him FB messages, SMS messages, but I hardly got replies back. It was his birthday late August, when I gifted him a printed mug with a message stating, “With lots of love and best wishes”, and by now, according to me, I had written quite a few times that I simply love him too much, as a friend, as a brother, as a buddy. He hardly replied to my mails, SMSs, etc…

    Possibilities could be that he has lots of friends, and I am just one of them, or he is not very fluent in computers (though this seems to be untrue looking at how frequently he logs in to Pet Society), or may be he’s too busy in his life to reply back to me. I really don’t know. Now, according to my understanding, he should be completely knowing that I love him too much, then wasn’t it his responsibility to be equally considerate? All I expected was the care of my love for him – I never expected him to say, “Yaaaa, I love you too…” and all that. But it hardly reflected from his actions. We continued dancing in our batch, but he hardly talked.

    I got upset day-by-day, since in spite of having told him several times, he never responded back. I used to wonder, why this boy is not even caring to reply to my SMSs/mails? Why is he not talking to me? Did I hurt him? Or does he think I am g*y, and is staying far from me? Somehow, I wanted to still tell him that his responses are lacked, and I am missing them badly. Or is he simply innocent, or unaware, or careless? Or is it that he is only interested girls and in those dirty things that teens usually like?

    For about a week, I was just awaiting, sleepless nights thinking about the above, back-ache due to thinking too much, stress, tension, headache, and many sad thoughts. Lack of concentration on work, etc. etc.

    Finally, today, I wrote this email to him:
    ***************
    “Enuf of that writing on the FB status each and every day. It’s very easy for everybody to read, make fun of it, forget it, but what pain I am going through is in my ACTUAL life, in my day-to-day living.
    My brain pains like hell at times. My back-ache is for the same reason. I have run into insomnia – I wake up at 4 AM and then unable to sleep.
    I thought reading those messages, sometimes I would get a mail from you or you would come up to me asking, ‘Why? What have I done?’, or may be the reason why I am saying that someone hurt me, because I am sure by now you know that YOU are that someone. I am also sure by now you know how much I love you (as I shamelessly wrote to you a few days back in my card and all). If not, I am very sad to know that you were simply unaware even after those long boring mails of mine.
    I just wanted to let you know that YOU are that one, whom I am referring to time and again, and I am 99% sure you know/knew that. If you didn’t, sorry! If you did and still didn’t get back, sorry, I will never ever bother you again. I may sound MAD, but this is what I am going through these days.
    Only when you feel you are missing someone in your life, my doors are always open. I am always there.
    I am really gripped by SADness today. I don’t want you to feel guilty though.
    Anything you want to clarify regarding this, any qns you may have in mind, feel free to ask. Anything you want to say to me regarding this, feel free.
    It may all be my mind’s game, I guess, but when you love someone so much, and that person simply doesn’t get back, it hurts, doesn’t it???”
    ***************

    What if he was innocent? Was I wrong? Will this break? How do I behave in the class now? I am unable to concentrate on my work, my life, and life simply seems to be aimless now. I might just go into depression, it seems. PLEASE HELP!!!
    1 hour ago – 3 days left to answer.

    Now, what has happened is I am unable to even s
    An important thing to clarify. I am not g*y. My words, messages may sound like that, but please don’t misunderstand me. My problem is that I am too emotional.

    I met Jay late January 2010 while I was still 16 years old. I might as well tell you that he was 26 years old then because it plays a major part in the story. He turned out to be my friends older brother and what attracted me to him at first was that he was drawing. I am an artist also, but my skills come no where close to matching up with his. Normally, I wouldn’t go for a guy that is so ahead of me in age but we got to talking and he was just so fascinating and talented. We started talking and hanging out a lot and in March 2010 we kissed for the first time. He asked me not to tell anyone because obviously he was embarrassed about my age. Between March and April I still saw him all the time and we would also kiss some more. Then at the end of April 2010 (which is the month I also turned 17) he met a 20 year old girl that he became crazy about and they started dating. He told me that he liked me and that if he were 17 again he would date me in a heartbeat, but because of my age things could just never work out. I started to avoid him by talking to him less and not seeing him anymore, but I just couldn’t let him go so easily. He loves Bram Stoker’s Dracula and back when we first started talking, he told me that if one of us found the movie then we will watch it together.
    I found the movie in Mid-May 2010 and I had to watch it with him. So while he was still dating the other girl, I went over to watch it with him and by the end of it we just started kissing. His girlfriend found out that I was over there but not about the kiss and sent me an angry message. To be honest, I was sort of flattered that she would be threatened by me because she’s so attractive. I told Jay that she sent me a message and he called me so I could read it to him. He told me that I shouldn’t feel bad and that she was crazy and possessive and that he was going to break up with her. So, all this time I believed that they broke up because of me.
    I lost touch with him over the summer because I was beginning to like him too much and I didn’t want to get hurt again but in August 2010 we reconnected and it became a sort of thing that we would see each other every saturday to talk, eat dinner, and kiss.
    October 2010, I told my friend how things were starting to go beyond kissing. Not sex though, I was a virgin and still am. Then she responded to me by saying that Jay has an STD. I was very upset and felt intrusive knowing this, whether it was true or not. I felt guilty that someone else had told me, so on one of our saturdays I spilled all the very personal things that I had never told him before. After I was finished, I told him that someone told me that he had an STD and asked if it was true.
    He told me that it was possible, that he had never shown symptoms of it but a girl he had dated in his late ‘teens had it. That was actually why him and his girlfriend from April-May broke up. Jay said that she was much more aggressive than girls he was used to and they had sex before he could tell her. When she found out she was very angry that he could have given it to her and dumped her. He said that the reason he didn’t tell me was because we can’t have sex but if we could then he would have gotten tested and told me. That was the last time I really saw and spoke to him.
    I graduated from High School early, so he and I go to the same college. From Oct 2010 and to this day, I see him around all the time but don’t really say anything except a passing “Hi, how are you?”
    I still get butterflies in my stomach everytime I see him and even though I havent been close to him in about 6 months, I like him so much that I can’t even stand it. My 18th birthday is next week and i’m wondering if I should say anything to him, to try and reconnect or something

    What I really would like to know is what people think about this. Gosh, I sound like a 10 year old girl in this whole story.

    Okay. This will be long.. WARNING.

    This guy, Konnor, i have liked for almost a year. Ive liked him since August 20th 2010. We started becoming good friends in september… october he was like my best guy friend. October 15th there was a highschool football game we went to, and we spent the whole time talking and sitting next to each other… I got texts from other girls saying ‘Get away! I like Konnor!’ and i always responded, ‘well, so do i?’. People came up to both of us and asked us if we were going out, and we always said no…?! though that night… it seemed like we were.
    Afterwards my friends and I went to Culvers and Konnor was texting me and my friend, Sara. He told Sara “you know, why cant girls tell guys them like them?!” and then i got the courage.
    I told him “Okay. I like you. Its been around 2 months. Please dont act weird around me…” and he responded “why would i act weird?”
    we texted the rest of the night stupid things… but after that.. we didnt talk for MONTHS. It killed me.
    February 26th he started dating my best friend, and by then i told everyone im over him. When i wasnt.
    So i gave to OK to my best friend. Us three walked to the buses and i had to see them say their mushy goodbyes to each other right in front of my face…
    Well April we finally started speaking again. And it was because of my best friend (his girlfriend) so i guess that was meant to happen. But they broke up around May… and him and i were already back to our flirty selves again.
    So we finally were friends again… not AS flirty and not AS close.. but good friends, like we picked up where we left off.
    June 10th we went on a ‘yay schools over’ trip to a Waterpark. We had our group of friends, a few boys and a few girls. Him and i were gonna ride a ride together but STUPIDALLY before that i agreed to my friend instead… i really wanted to go with him:(
    after that trip we had an afterparty at a friends house… Konnor and I were getting really close that night. We all ended up playing spin the bottle. and him and i kissed the most (THANK GOD!!:)) but the last kiss, i swear that it sparked..It seemed to last forever. It was amazing.
    A few nights after that, we all played truth or dare and i kissed him more that night too for dares. it wasnt as intense as the last kiss we had… but it was still kissing.

    A few weeks after, my friend Mckenna had a bonfire with me, Lexi, Lindsey (konnors ex-gf), Sean, Konnor and Rourke. Just all of us friends.
    Well, Lexi likes Sean, and I like Konnor and her and i were helping each other out that night.:) Mckenna, Lindsey and Rourke all decided to go away in the tent and it was just us four.
    It was so sweet because that night it was like a double date! Sean & Lexi, Me &Konnor.
    Lexi ended up on Seans lap and me on Konnors! then we all played truth or dare and we all kissed blah blah blah. But i really felt a connection that night.
    I look at him and get butterflies.
    A few nights ago, we were all at mckennas house again and went for a walk and he was by me like a lot of the time.

    I really INSANELY like him and i want him to like me. so badly. Ive wanted this for almost a year.
    Any advice? thoughts? opinions? comments? what should i do? I dont want to tell him again because i missed him when we didnt talk. i dont want him not talking to me again…

    SORRY THIS WAS SO LONG. I NEEDED TO VENT REALLY BADLY.

    For my birthday I always have a sleepover, and that’s what I’m planning on doing this year. My birthday is August 3rd. And I’m going on vacation from July 28th to August 2nd. And my best friend is going on vacation from August 9th until the day before we go back to school, but I really want her to come. And I know that I’m getting some games from my parents on my birthday that would be fun for me and my friends to play at my sleepover. So should I have my sleepover on a weekend before I go on vacation, like on July 25 or 26, or possibly July 19 or 20. Or after I go on vacation and before my best friend goes on vacation, in a weekday between August 3 and 8, and have some fun games to play?? But it’s summer, so most likely most of my friends will be home on a weekday…
