    Officially received my license to practice architecture! Huge life achievement for me. I started studying to be an architect in 2008 and quit FFXI because it was negatively affecting my work (not the first time). It took 6 years of undergrad and graduate studies and 4 years of professional experience to obtain this license, while still gaming vicariously through you.

    Now who has a beautiful old historic building they need preserved?

    Went hatchet throwing with some friends last night, best friend said to stop by his house after as he had a gift for me. Was expecting a groomsman's gift or something since he said it was only for me and the wife might not like it.

    Turns out he had a bottle of Blanton's for me that was bottled on my son's birthday, he had been searching for it for months and had to do a few trades to get it. What a fucking great gift, gonna open it on his 21st.

    My son is 5 months old I think he's been looking for it the whole time.

    Could you design a building from FFXI and sell it to a client.

    To say it hasn't influenced me would be lie. . . .

    A chick I thought ghosted me texted me back, apologized, and set up a date for next week.

    Texting with girl/guy when dating. Guy/girl stops responding and is never heard from again.

    Basically just the coward's break up. Even if I've only gone on a single date with someone, I'll send them a "hey I wasn't feeling it, good luck to you" type message instead of leaving them wondering

    You meet someone, all conversations are going great, then it stops mid conversation (via text). They stop responding or are non existant.. like a ghost

    Oh. I always considered that a weird breakup or w/e. I guess I don't get the comments like "ghosting me".

    edit: ghosting = not responding. OK we good.

    After a few dates is one thing, still shitty, but I've heard some pretty bad horror stories of people dating multiple months and then the person disappears. Takes a special kind of cowardly asshole to do that.

    My favorite variant is the ghost catfish, where someone pretends to be someone else and then ghosts you mid conversation. Whoooo spooky w/ whiskers

    I've gone on plenty of one-and-done dates and that was fine, even a couple where she or I wasn't feeling it and said so. Also totally normal. The phenomenon of everything going great, making future plans, and then vanishing without explanation, that still irks me. In this case it worked out at least.
