Quote from: Felix on May 10, 2022, 03:48 PMEverything you said is so true. The beauty of a forum is when you have time it is always here and if you are posting to a topic, you know where to go to see the replies. A forum feels more like family than monster social media. I too left all social basically. I might tweet once a month or so to respond to someone but my heart isn't there. We have been in some good forums, some bad too I suppose, but when it's good it always feels more like home. Here right now. This is a friendly uncrowded home. We can come and go and it's laid back. I don't feel the pressure that has come at other places to manufacture. Here, it can just grow, naturally.

There are no "what you should see" type of algorithm to display posts from certain day or someone (probably they have those addon codes, but I'm sure true forum owners will stick to the classic styles! And we can always have threads and on-going conversations and discussions in the forums, that may also be helpful to some guests or new-comers!!! That "oh, I'm not alone facing such and such" or "just having a good day (or satisfying their sad angerful of moments) reading the posts here as guests or lurking!" This forum is young 1-2 months old. I have been relatively active on here even solo, just that this past few weeks and perhaps 2-3 more weeks ahead is my west to east coast, reverse manifest destiny cross-country move, so everything from time and budgeting and preparing for the new poisiton after the move is CRAAAAZY! KALAZY!!! BUT after that and even here and then, THIS IS MY HOME!!! I grew up with only 2-3 good forums, 1 was on Myspace and the other was where we all met, and the last, BIASED of my own
Quote from: Felix on May 14, 2022, 03:39 PMJust take your time as you move and start to get settled. I am glad it's not me. I have only lived in three houses and for all but one year of my life I have lived on the same block. I have never had the desire to be elsewhere. They say you can never go home again, but since I never left like most people I grew up with did, I am home. Now this is my forum home and the only social I have posted on.You take care of your moving and I'll keep stopping in even when it's slow.
Quote from: Ko on May 17, 2022, 01:11 PMI envy that too! Too many moves in my life and leaving people behind and not being able to meet them again yet or will never be, some RIP! I cannot wait to finally settle in a home, without having to move for studies or move because of rent going up by $200+ per month at each yearly renewal (being in California). My 5 years plan! AND YES! Where we feel belong is home! My home is more online too since "the moves". From myspace days to random classic messengers chats to short-lived social networks to good old days of Facebook, Twitter, etc. I have "friends" of 20+ years! some having even met but close!
Quote from: Felix on May 21, 2022, 03:32 PMI hope when you get your home it is everything you want it to be. I have a feeling you will make that so.Yes, I am so happy I never left as I did not need to. The only thing I missed by doing so is I never got to build my dream home. A simple thing and grateful for not having that expense and just spending on redoing on a couple of these old houses. But what is best is I am where all my memories were made. I may build a Pop's cabin just to scratch that itch. Shoot I may need it someday.
Quote from: Ko on May 23, 2022, 12:20 AMWe are thankful to have a good living, so to speak, with a roof on top and food plentiful and having our basic needs and some desires fulfilled, while living in apartments or having to do that local moves of current years! We may or may not have a our dream home, but we WILL have a home where there will be less stress for my parents and they can focus on hobbies missed out, and I, most of my missed childhoods! After age of 12, although not in a tragic way, my childhood was GONE, the moves and having to take my part of leadership role, while scared , with immigration or translation of official documents need or legal matters!! When I left the forums, my last real social network, I went to the Caribbean for study with my then gf whom I proposed too fast, being love blinded. Fast forward 2 years, ex-fiancée now. Fast forward 4-5 years, here I am! Goals fulfilled to what I wanted but single. My life is hard as is with the career choices with not much time for outside fun, and my childhood and my parents' financial and stabilizing isn't too fond by others, especially these days where "family lifestyle isn't a norm". I'm older now (non-traditional in my career due to my age) and my main dream home is just for my parents and I and whomever is willing to join us with God's blessing!BUILD THAT CABIN!!! DO IT! it'll also keep your mind kalazy planning and remodeling!! Enjoy the ride of continuing a building from the days and some roller coaster flashback ride! I SOOOOO WANTED to build my childhood home replica here in US.... although most back birth country are RIP.
Quote from: Felix on Jun 08, 2022, 08:44 AMI remember when you fell head over heels for someone at the near end of Kalazy. It did seem like it happened so fast that I thought it was too fast. But it happens that way because it has for me twice. Love at first sight. Do not be bothered by being single because it could change just as fast again because it can and does happen just as fast as then. Maybe next time it sticks forever. Who knows but always just try to enjoy this waiting period while you protect your heart. Someone will appear for you when the time is right, I just know it. Seems you are too busy at the moment, but busy or not when it happens, it happens.I think it's great and I don't find too many people who revere their parents and wish to care for them like you do. I retired to take care of my parents who are now gone. I was always here on property and always did anything needed for them from a 10 year old small boy till they were gone. I can think of nothing I am more proud of than that. Taking care of who brought me into this world and loved me the whole time. I hope you get to build that dream home. If not though I know you will be there for them and that is enough. It is your time that means more to them I am sure than four walls. Family lifestyle may not be the norm, but for good people it is the best.Maybe I will build that cabin in a couple of years when more money is freed up.
