I found my balance before, juggling help.com and life.com. Anyhow, I am positive I can still bounce back. I must have my belief for survival.
I love my country, I will watch WWE Live in the US yet I will still go back to my hometown. I hope what you know about our country is true.
In Spain, they still think that the Philippines is still a primitive country. We know of Apple, other than the fruit. We have the richest of the rich, and the poorest of the poor here.
Say hello to Hacksaw for me. I am his fan from the Philippines. When it was still WWF then, and would have to buy wrestling magazines and all that stuff through snail mail. Since there is no internet then, and nobody here would bring that imported stuff. BTW aren’t you that fond of the Pawnstars in History Channel? They are huge, well literally and figuratively. Hehe..
Take care Dr. Ralph, see you when I see. Nice exchanges of chats.
Nice to know you are not alone, you got your loving family with you! That is something to be proud of and many people will envy you for that. Too many lonely people in the world, we don’t want to add up to that anymore.
But you know even if I am with my family, it still gets lonely. IDK, I guess things, feelings, emotions, life will never be perfect.
52 and 48 are not old. For some, life has only begun. =) Remodeling, meaning you remodel houses?! Sort of a construction company?
I live exactly in the Philippines, it is located in South East Asia. Ever heard of that?
I “live” here at Help.com when I am running away from Life.com so when you don’t see me here anymore, be happy for me. Because by then I had lived my life.
You seem to have a nice place, seems peaceful. I can never get enough of trees and hills. I prefer nature than cities. Hillbillys, reminds me of Hacksaw Jim Dougan of WWE. Do you watch WWE? Or the Pawnstars? Those are my favorites. When I go US, the first thing I will do is watch live WWE (though they went here in the Phils. and I watched it twice) and visit Las Vegas Gold Silver Pawnshop - featured in Pawnstars. That would be soo cool!
As for me, as far as I can remember I am typically a shy, not so confident child growing up. And I would be sooo obedient to my mother. So I really wonder where this rebellious and depressed attitude came from. Though I remember then, that I always daydream. IDK if there is something with it. What you think?
No I live with my wife and two of our five children. Our youngest child is 20 and he is still at home as is his older brother who is 23. They pay my bills, except for the mortgage so it is great. My house will soon be paid off so I will have nothing to spend my money on except myself and my wife. We are old… I am 52 and she is 48. She still looks great, though. Hardly any wrinkles and has stayed skinny even after 5 kids!
No, I don’t need another job I own a remodeling company and make a lot of money. I just write for fun and as a release. South as in Southern states in the United States of America… Tennessee. We are known as the redneck hillbillys who shoot guns and hunt and drive trucks and drink beer. Pretty much describes me to a T. I couldn’t live in a concrete jungle I love my hills and guns and hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness…. the Smoky Mountains is in east Tennessee and it is 600,000 acres of trees and hills and wild turkeys and deer and bear and wild hogs. The whole state is really a lot like that.
My mom died young and my dad committed suicide shortly after that so it hit me hard. I started drinking twice as much and needed people to talk to who were strangers…. here I am.
Do you live alone? How about teaching or writing as a part-time work? Plus you’ll earn on the sideline.
From the South? South America, like Brazil, Ecuador?
No I am not married, I think I will never be married. I am quite “selfish”, stubborn and would not allow anybody to have any hold on me. And I am not really fond of children. I hate household chores, I am happy that in country household help is easily available. I love pets though, but usually I have someone to take care of them.
I am 32, how about you? Life is so fast, you wake up one day and time has slipped away.
“Good morning, yesterday
You wake up and time has slipped away
And suddenly it’s hard to find
The memories you left behind
Remember, do you remember”
And that hits you, whether you have done enough, given enough or taken enough?!
About me lately, and been obvious in my latest post that I am “quite” back on depression lately. I was in 2008/2009. Would you believe I was able to sort of “snap out of it”? (I changed work which is the root cause of my dissatisfaction and depression) and now back in 2012, I am on the same “feelings” and situation again. I don’t know if it is mid-life crisis or what?! I really don’t know. I am too stubborn to go to a therapist etc. I don’t think I can talk to them. As much as I can write here.
I guess my story is I just love to write. If I have no one to talk to, I talk to myself. So Help lets me write and communicate and keeps my mind occupied so I don’t go crazy.
No I am an American. From the South where people are supposed to be backwards and inbred and stupid. For some reason it seems like the people from NY and California fit that description better than I. Sans is still around, and Steve the Gator Farmer got banned too I think. He started his own web site that was supposed to compete with this one and I joined but there was never anyone online.
I am really glad that we have gotten to know each other better okei! So what country are you from? How old are you? Married? Give me the real dirt….
Thanks for the compliment. That’s sweet. I am (kinda) educated. lol. And English is our second language here, though we have hundreds of native languages (depending on which island you were born). If I haven’t told you that I am from Asia, from what country/continent would you think that I belong? And you’re from England right?
Yeah, Linuxya is a lawyer, from Canada I think. I think his wife died but met a new partner. I don’t know if he practices law now. Do you happen to watch Drop Dead Diva?! And yeah I remember his Joshy Woshy lol. He doesn’t come here more oftern now, and yeah Phegee (a beautiful girl from England) just disappeared. How sad really.
And I remember Bogdan, his Romanian I think and is now living his life, got his girl. Got a job too I think.
What happened by the way to Max and Sans? They used to be here before, like everyday. What happened to them? And steve the alligator. lol. I like that guy, so misunderstood. I enjoy fights with him too. And littlenick. I just don’t understand that he will just leave this place, I have a gut feel that maybe he is just here. And how can the mods ban a person as in forever? Perpetual? It is sort of death penalty in a real world!
Well, I am certainly happy that you are always here Dr. Ralph. Pretty comforting to read the old familiar names of friends here who are often online. And old has nothing to do with age, it has got to do with friendships. Still it means a lot to know that you, and me, and the rest of the members are not alone.
Linuxya is amazing. I think he is a lawyer. There used to be some very smart people on here that don’t come around as much. Awesome mccool was a great friend of mine, he was always chasing all the girls, he started out calling himself Joshy Woshy Poshy or something like that. I think he was Scottish and his name really was Josh. I miss him about as much as anyone, I never did figure out how he kept from getting banned. He spoke his mind. Pheegee just disappeared too.
You know I never would have guessed you are Asian, your English is impeccable, but then again Asians are notorious for being an extremely intelligent race. They kick our ass in American schools.
yeah they’re my friends. back in 2009/2010 we used to have so many chats that would really top the most popular. we have likewise have other people there. nowhere to find now. well, except you. you seem to be here as always which is quite comforting for the old time users.
btw what happened to phegee? never seen her here lately. and drmccool/ awesome mccool, who i think has an eye on her. lol.
nope i’m not from uk or london. funny i was able to communicate with these british/american people considering i am asian. but they say i am quite articulate (ahem!) so here i am rolling with punches
amelia is from new zealand, roltz as far as i can remember is from ireland.. yunikat is my friend here too. but i guess he is quite busy with his life as his country portugal is in bad economic shape. do you happen to know yunikat?
i am watching the olympics but our country, seem to be one of the last. the last time we won a silver medal was i think in ‘97. lucky for the athlete in uk/usa to win against kenyans who would always won any race (including here!) i guess they are not that unbeatable after all
So do you know Amelia and Rolz? Amelia Earthling I am thinking, and Rolz the guy who had his picture with his little brothers. Are you all from London? For some reason I get that feeling… you watching the Olympics? How about the mens 10,000 meter run? Guys from Great Britain and the USA passed the Kenyan’s and Ethiopians in the last lap to win the gold and silver, it was crazy.
I see. So I was one of the few who asked, at least that makes me quite “normal” hehe..
Yah, I think I post much, mostly useless, out of boredom especially when Amelia, Roltz and the others would used to be here. Or when I was drunk around 2/3 years ago. Or topics that could help others. But if I need serious help, I would sometimes do it anon. IDK. 4years here makes me still feel *shy* lol. But kidding aside, the anonymity thing makes me feel kinda secure (free of judgment or doubt).
Nice chatting with you Ralph. See you around help.com. Keep replying. What will we do without you here?! And as you mentioned about him, I miss Littlenick. Tsk! I miss the dog avatar, his replies, him being around here.
I put that not a doctor thing on there the first day, it was not because you asked. Everyone still asks… Littlenick had over 60,000 replies, I am just a poser. How many posts do you have? I am going to have to check out your profile now okei?
Your profile reads: “I will kick you in the ass and tell you the truth. No not a doctor, not even a Ralph!”
I think I was the one who asked you if you are a doctor! So desperate I think then. =)
I checked your profile to see the number of your replies as you mentioned it in one of the recent posts, and yep, and omg, you got 31k plus replies. WOW do you ever sleep or get off here?!? You should be proud, I bet nobody beats that! And you should deserve an award!
But I think I have the most number of posts though heheh…
