    Some thoughts of my time in Vanadiel

    Hello all, you all don't know me from Jack Nicholson, but hear me out anyway

    Like many of you here, I played FF11 and love/d it. Hopefully unlike many of you here, I am a longtime sufferer of mental illness. A few years ago, I decided to write my life story and struggle with such as an act of healing and reconciliation. FF11 has played no small part in that journey, which is why I am making this post.

    http://www.tomato-of-justice.com/vanadiel-ah-vanadiel/ - is the chapter of my book which most directly deals with my time there.

    I hope that anyone who reads it gets a kick out of it, and that my memories of my time spent there resonate with you in some way.

    Thank you for reading this far, and I hope you enjoy my writing. May Altana watch over and guide you forever.

    Oh, just take a look at the shouts on the game. I assure you, a disproportionate number of individuals around XI are mentally ill.

    Also, your "Welcome" section:
    I no longer have any mental illness of any kind whatsoever. (certified by my kind doctors who have been with me for much of the way.)
    And which charity does 10% of the proceeds go towards?

    I have a feeling that we are going to be taking more about him blaming Osama Bin Laden for him not losing his virginity instead.

    Crediting hentai, Evagelion, and of course anime for being alive still is a bold move too. The potential in this trainwreck is off the charts.

    I focused on the special titles like "get a job they said" or "my (non-existent) sex life"

    The real meat and potatoes, if you will.

    'My mom helped me email my boss asking him to hire me back, no response'

    Oh my.

    gods forbid a teenager actually asks his parents for advice on something they aren't experienced with. oh my indeed.

    OP, you probably know this already, but spicy is... special. very, very special. as special as our current president special, just in a different way.

    so long as you keep trying to learn and grow from your experiences, you're doing better than most people out there ever try to do.

    FFXI also helped me a lot with my life, my playing and musing on the story helping me to figure out more about myself. another series of stories that really helped me out was a lot of the forgotten realms novels, particuarly the ones involving the legend of Drizzt, the outcast dark elf. in all the novels involving him as a main character, different arcs of the novel start off with him reflecting on various aspects of his journey. there's a ton of insightful observations in there. you don't even have to agree with his conclusions, but you can see his reasoning and it's a great guide to helping you reach your own conclusions on various topics.

    also there's lots of adventure, magic, and 600 lb panthers involved.

    Why is it important how much the panther weighs?

    SMH at feline weight shaming

    lol! she's pure muscle, never fear. no one ever would accuse Gwen of being ugly! (though a her favorite dwarven cushion is rather unhappy about the weight part.)

    I'm sorry, did you even read the section I was referring to? Please do that, and after if you can tell me that again with a straight face. Then we can take it from there.

    Such a valid question.

    Getting laid is the most important thing in life.

    I read the page about having mom email his boss. I guess I've turned out better in life than I thought I had.

    Don't detract from how much of an asshole people think I am for saying "oh my.." about that.
    Ruining my cred.

    Ha! I mean, I could actually see this being a total troll thing. But then again that job blog post could be completely true. I've unfortunately had a front seat to a coworker for the past two years doing everything short of of wiping the asses of her 22 year old sons.

    Wow so people actually replied?

    I hope you all liked it. If you didn't well too bad. I wrote as honestly as I could.

    For the record she didn't email my boss, just advised me to. And I was 19, it was my first job and I had severe depression.
