Post a Former Member you Miss and Why

thats awesome! I remember when you had that injury and were going through some rough nights. Glad that things have improved tremendously in that regard. Glad that you have plenty of opportunities in your life to chase after, injury free. My mother just got done doing that for one of her best friends wedding. She basically was the main planner and had everything set up and organized. She's done it before though. Good luck with your sisters ceremony!

Much presh, yeah that's pretty much me now as my sis is preggers.

as for me, I've just been around really. I am still a warehouse manager with this small company. After putting a lot of thought into my future I have come to a realization that I might really enjoy a career in the forensics field, like working for the police perhaps or a private company. I have taken a real interest in case files and projections and the psychology of crime and crime scenes. It's fascinating to me and something I've shown to be very interested in learning about, so I'm definitely gonna give that a shot. Met a girl last August who I'm proud to say I'm in love with. We are planning on moving in together within the next 12 months or so. She's a very successful girl for this state of her life. She just turned 21 and will have her bachelors degree soon in paralegal studies. She works downtown on a big office. I don't deserve her but I love her to death. 

Good shit, that's a field you can do some good in. You taking some courses on the side or do you really need to go fulltime education on something like that? 

I wasnt into dating people a  bit younger at first but it's kinda refreshing sometimes, glad you're happy.

Thats pretty much me. A few years ago, I started having plans 5 or 6 days and nights out of the week. And just grew distant from the forums and using social media and even getting on Xbox live. Taking up more interests and meeting her has kept me out of the house even further, which imo is great considering how I used to spend my time at home alone not really doing much. I'm much happier now than I have ever been, and grateful to have the great things I have in life.

Yeah same here pretty much

yeah I used to be the same way. I only liked to date women older than me, and even then I was really only hooking up mostly. Then I met her and thought it would be a fling that may last a few weeks or months, but never imagined having so much in common and feeling the way I do. Definitely a blessing to have met her, especially the way I did. Come to find out we grew up in the same neighborhood, 2 years apart and 3 streets away from one another. Funny how stuff works out. She makes me a happy man and I couldn't be more excited. 

 

 

As for school, my plan right now is to keep working full time and save up what I can. She works full time too and makes way more than I do, currently, so we are both in the process of saving up and looking for places to move in together. She graduates this winter with her bachelors degree, and our hope is that by next spring or summer, she will be completely done with school, and then I'm going to either go back full time or enroll in a decent amount of single courses to get some progress on that. I may take a class or two before that point just to get my feet wet, but right now I'm fine with just saving what I can in order to make the next steps I'm taking in life that much easier. 

 

 

She has no idea about my former halo career or my liking to make and watch video game montages. That's my secret weapon should I ever need it ;)

 

speaking of which, how often are videos being put out these days? I have a lot of great halo 2 stuff from Mcc, I was thinking about making a video and releasing it, but not sure if this is even the place anymore 

 

Titanium, all grown up. Hey.

 

SicktisiK is probably lurking occasionally. I talk to him regularly.  He's alive and mostly well, eating french fries like it's no one's business.

hey dawn! :) I wouldn't say 'all grown up' but considerably so from how I was at times when I used to frequent h2f. Funny how growing up is unavoidable and with it comes priorities, responsibility and maturity. But here I am, working hard to show that I too am capable of doing it lol. How are things with you? How's Marshall? Still with the dark skinned beautiful partner? Lmao. 

 

I figured Collin/Colin/Colon was still around somewhere. I think I saw his name on some threads I viewed and he mentioned still lurking a fair amount. I see he has moved on from Diet Coke and graduated to French fries. Can't say that's totally surprising. 

Oh he's always been on the french fries, but he has moved on to beer for sure. haha.

Marshall's swell - 7 now and in grade 2. My little guy, Fox, is just over 2 now. But no, Michel and I aren't together. We broke up in January after it had been a long time coming...but life goes on. He still very beautiful. It'll take a long time before someone can step into his shoes. For now I'm just trollin' Tinder and keeping myself occupied with my business and kids.

Happy to see you've found a good woman to take your heart :)

yuck. Hope he enjoys his beer lol better him than me. I can't stand the stuff. And ahh that's crazy! I remember hearing about him growing up, always enjoyed hearing about your escapades together and seeing your joy watching him grow. Another child eh!? Congrats! That's awesome glad to hear it  and sorry to hear about Michel, but some things happen for the best, hopefully that is the case here. I used to be the same way with tinder pretty much just using it with no expectations and letting whatever happen. That's actually how I met my girlfriend and we both are extremely surprised and thankful that it was tinder that allowed us to find each other. It gets a lot of shit and probably rightly so but it worked for us *shrug*

 

hey titty, still pwussyfooting around beer at casual social gatherings? come now

big time. Generally I try to get people to do shots with me so they can forget about me not liking beer and I can have a funny response if they try to give me shit for not liking beer. It's just not for me, can't help it man lol

You can, I believe in you

awww man, titty isnt the ignorant little douche from halo anymore that i probably was too. too proud.

the beer thing is kinda nuts tho.

I miss: Contra, Tanker, Haze, Slutsmasher, Urlacher, SirTopEm, Lagzalot, Vamp (GFX section king), Zalak Zaveri (can't believe I remember that name after all these years), STL, NiceGuy, Don Miguel, Balles, Skerer, BeeArePro, Pinball... I know there are many many more, but 'ats all I got for now.

I miss chatting on Aim with everyone, customs, pwnin n00bs in matchmaking, sword/rocket glitching, super jumps, and getting to the top of Headlong to find the golden warthog that didn't exist.  

I grew up on a street full of kids my age, so we were always playing football, basketball, street hockey, rollerblading, climbing trees... outdoor stuff.  I got into gaming because of Halo CE, and then got addicted to H2 online.  I spent way too many hours playing that game.  I loved every second, and don't regret a thing!

H2F changed so much for me.  People outside of H2 or H2F didn't understand how a website or an online game could mean so much to one person or have such an impact on someone, but it provided the perfect outlet when I needed it most.  It was all a fortunate accident that I got into gaming.

Since I put down the controller in 2008, I haven't looked back.  H2F will always be in the back of my mind, as well as the friends I  spent countless hours with (most of which I've never met face-to-face).  Sometimes I really want to go get an Xbox, Halo MCC, and binge out on some H2 online once again.  I just don't have the time these days.

Weird thing is, I haven't played games in FOREVER, but I follow OpTic Gaming like a friggin fanboy.  I've been watching Scump and Hecz for about 4 years like they're some professional sports team.  The way I've been watching the Texas Rangers, Cowboys, and Lakers, is how I've been following OpTic.  It's weird.  My partner makes fun of me all the time.

Which brings me to my last little rant and nostalgia of the night.  I remember BeeArePro being the only openly gay member on H2F.  I'm sure there were more, but he was the only one I knew of.  I remember I responded to one of his threads that was something like "Ask a gay guy", and then he PM'ed me asking me if I was gay.  I remember being so scared opening up to him.  He was the first person I ever wrote or spoke to about my sexuality honestly.  I didn't come out to my friends or family til 2012, but I'll never forget him for showing me it was okay to open up and be yourself, and for him being the very first person I was able to reveal myself to.  In my life there has been two life altering/defining moments that I can pinpoint and say "This happened at this exact time, and my life changed forever."  One event was walking into a piano shop that I thought was a record store and meeting someone who forever changed my life (basically gave me life), and the other is stumbling upon H2F in the summer of '05.

It would be cool if we could get a whole new generation of Halo gamers here.  That would be worth sticking around and watching.

Thats dope Kool aid, gives me good feelings about this place. Skerer was a pleasant person, still weird to see those names and have an instant feeling to how that person was eventho Ive never met them. 
KoolAid! How's it going? You seem to be in a good place these days. It's been along time since I've talked to anyone off here.  
Can you just fucking die already?

Where the hell did you come from?!  I never thought I'd see you again, 'ol timer!  Holy shit!  Waddup doh! 

Things are going pretty well here.  Just constantly fighting the urge to buy a gaming setup to get back on H2.  How have you been?  My mind is blown right now.  I can't believe its you... It's really you! :p

Alive and well. Had ups and bad downs but life goes on. Doing pretty fucking awesome nowadays. It's been awhile. 

 

I broke down and got MCC and play sometimes when I have the time. I'm still at terrible at the game as you remember. We should catch up.

Arrow and MagicSauc3 if you guys ever see this ILYSFM ILL NEVER FORGET OUR BOND xoxoxoxoxo
Fuck y'all for not missing me.
All I remember about pistol is he did nothing but brag about his life.   I miss Big V.   I talked to him on facebook sometimes but he has gone dark in the last few months.
