Greetings to you all who remember me.

It is on the last day of 2009 that I return to you people, simply explaining the things that have happened to me over the past year. John was kind enough to sent me a message on Facebook, offering me to come back, as did others before him. This does not mark my return but I believe I owe it to people to at least tell them where I stand.

Fact of the matter is, I have not been doing well. As some of you might remember I took my leave on the Vault months ago, seems years however, as a person who had found love and was working hard to transform himself from being a carefree 25-year old into a 25-year old stepdad and a lover, for lack of a better term. I speak to you know, a 26-year old person who is neither anymore.

Fact that hardly anyone knows about is that we were already in the planning phase for the possibility of marriage, sometime in 2010. A month or two after I moved in there, things started going south. Her family liked me, all except her parents who raised her very strict and it was that, that ultimately led to the break-up. Her parents started criticizing things about me, my past or the way I was with her son. I never really noticed anything of those but then again, my knowledge of the Turkish language was poor at best so many of the phrases just went by me anyway.

Eventually things became clear that the way it was, was not making her happy anymore and after another week or so, it ended. I moved back home, and was confronted with how my life was before her. Mind you, she was the first real serious thing that I ever gotten into, so I was confronted with what a lonely life I had been living up to that point. It never bothered me, because frankly, I didn’t know any better. She had changed that, and once again I tumbled back in to that old way. The problem now being the knowledge of how much I had needed someone’s support and love. That was gone now.

So the months after that, this realization grew ever stronger. With that, came the unavoidable depression and worse. I have been on and off medication for some time now. There are few days when I do not wish morning did not come. Wounds that should have been healed by now have no chance of that because I am confronted with her everyday at work. She has found someone, and is now a married woman. I, on the other hand, had tried a relationship with someone else, only to find I was being toyed around with. That didn’t really help my current state of mind.

In those months I have alienated people around me, locked myself away to all but a very select few people. On Facebook, I have done so to numerous people of this community, for that I am sorry. Very sorry.

So here I am, New Year’s Eve and I am in bed, sick. I wanted to take this chance to wish everyone a happy New Year and I hope 2010 will bring us all good things. 2009 has been a year filled with ups in the beginning but it all crumbled down from that. The only positive note I can offer is that my gaming hobby finally landed me a spot at Chief-Editor at a new website in Belgium. Hopefully my help can contribute to it’s success.

With kind regards,

Stieven (MIB)

MIB they once called me. Yes, that was my name. But you probably never heard of him. [/hipster]

I guess it is time for me to re-appear again. How is everyone? Couldn't remember my old account, so I signed up with my FB. John talked me into it!

Yes, Greeney2 is still here. 😛

The modern definition of ‘racist’ is someone who’s winning an argument with a liberal.

I knew that was coming but to be fair, if greeney wasn't here anymore, this place would never be the same.

They are lying around somewhere.

Oh and how are you now with regards to your mental and emotional state? Are you in a relationship?
