It's been awhile....
« on: August 13, 2010, 06:27:14 PM »
I've been gone for so long from APK that I nostalgia'd looking at some of the thread names. I mean, I had 49 pages of "unread posts since my last visit". As far as what I've been doing: I originally decided that I was getting too sidetracked on the internet, and my plan was to try to turn my computer time into workout/training time. However, what ended up happening was me losing all motivation to do anything physically challenging for like a month and a half. However, it wasn't all bad. I reconnected with my gaming self on Fallout 3 and Battlefield Bad Company 2 (maybe not a good thing, lol), I became more active in my Buddhist studies, and just kinda chilled.

I wish I didn't let all of this happen without parkour, but I'm not going to lie; I did. I've probably gained a few pounds and lost some of my definition, but I still have a few months left of warm weather here to get back into it. I shall start pestering my friends to come train with me again, and make them help me stay motivated. I'd like to say "HI!!!!!" to everyone, and let you know I'll be frequenting APK again, as I've learned I lose motivation without your guys' help. If you guys would be so kind as to help me out, I'd like to know what's been going on here, in the PK community, and I'd love it if you guys could post some sick videos that've come out recently to help get me motivated again.


P.S. How do you guys like my improved grammar skillzzz?? I've decided to stop being lazy and actually hit the shift button and the apostrophe button now  ;D

We were taking care of your Shawn and he grew quite a lot! By level your Shawn has grown by 4! If you want him back, it will cost 500 of your soul.

Shawn now knows Grammar!

HOLYCRAPYES!

Also, welcome back Shawn! It's been too long since all of us "oldies" have been together. Which hasn't happened yet, but it's getting closer.

Welcome back Shawn!
I'm in the same boat as yourself, due to lazyness after an injury, so I hope you stay motivated and become twice as awesome as before  :D

Mine was just pure laziness. Now that I've started school I have a real reason to be a little less useful, but still...
