Man in the past year that i've been in this club so many people are gone and I cant even think of them, alot just dont really post anymore, or they're postin in a section I cant read.

this just kind of sux.

Some people I never see post anymore:

2kRedGhost
LP3800
SnM
Iliveonnitro

I cant really think of anymore off hand but had thought about a bunch of people that just kind of seemed to go away. and alot of the gurus and originals dont post near as often if at all anymore.

just an observation.

I agree, bulletin boards slow down in the wintermonths, not much new to talk about when it's to crappy out to do anything.

Yeah, the "snowbirds" come back soon as the weather breaks. Real modders can't get everything done over just the summer. It's taken me almost 3 years to get my car where it's at, and it's nowhere near done. I'm hoping this is the year I get some appearance stuff done.

Kyle!! What's up dude?! How've you been. Sorry to have missed you at this year's xmas party--I was in Florida and I wouldn't have been able to afford it anyways, lol.

Sorry I haven't been posting much. I do have a busy schedule. I'm applying to tons of colleges and now I'm starting to look at scholarships. Finals were the past week, and I'm working 20hrs/wk on top of my school work. I have 3 AP classes in school (macroeconomics, government, european history), plus math and physics which have homework every day on top of that. I've also been trying to work in every after-school club I can. That includes the school chess club, which only keeps me coming back because i cant stand losing :( wtf i'm a nerd. Next semester, on top of my 20hrs of work a week and school, I am REQUIRED to work 40hrs of community service, about 5hrs/wk. Plus, I'm adding a speech class to my schedule, which means more homework.

What free time I do have I spend with my gf and other closer friends, although that seems to be going down the shithole. This spring/summer I will take a break and quit my work or put in shit hours so I can dedicate my life more. I stock up on money for winter to spend over summers. That is, unless, I go to Kettering/General Motors Institute. I would start my full-time co-op job in july.

I do make time to search the forums almost every day during my lunch break in school, though. I usually just don't have anything to say that I can type quickly. I may be going to the meeting at Fudd's if I can get someone to take my work shift.

I'm still active...just passively :)

Peace bro,
James

Other hobbies become more interesting..

ANd also the possibility of getting new cars!!

PLus winter you cant really enjoy this hobby too much..

PLus you eventually run out money for modding. ANd realize that in the end it is not worth the $$$..

Also for college peeps. You get into finals, than christmas break for 3-5 weeks. So you never have time or feel like getting on the boards.

Im not sure where sweetness went. He was trying to sell his car, but I havent talked to him in months. Apparently he was on 6 days ago....from his profile.
