So, I valeted cars for about 9 years, the first half of that was back in the tm2pc days.  After a while I got sick of parking cars.  I did my prereqs for physical therapy assistance school and went to PTA school from 2012-2014, graduating at 30years old.  I got married after graduating and live in my hometown with my wife who is a flight attendent from Texas.  I've been working in a nursing home for 3 years now and I really like the work itself, but sometimes the business side gets annoying and really borderline ethically. 

I got into pretty bad car crash in 2010, and I had no direct injury at the time, but I think something got messed up in my spine because I slowly developed ongoing pain in my left neck/shouder/hip over the next several years and I've been trying to work it out of me for the past 2 years, I've seen a chiropractor and 3 physical therapists.  I'd say its about 70% better, but not perfect and it still bugs me everyday.

My brother Afro from TMA also, lives in Orlando about an hour away, and we race go karts in real life, and we played GT5/6 on ps3 for several years and now we play a little project cars on ps4.  However, we have both expressed interest in playing tm2pc again, although we don't have near the time we did 8 or 10 years ago.

Holy shit! The return of AIC3D!

Now we just need Minion's Grandpa and CodeMatt to come out of the woods too and we'll be back in fucking business.

I'm just strolling around seeing what everyone's up to and hoping that someday we'll run into an improved version of tm2pc or a new generic version.

Still alive here...I can't seem to access the other site anymore. Is it done for?

Life-wise, it's changed a bit. Headed back to college and just working for the most part. These past few years, my interest in gaming has waned greatly. Just looking for other horizons in life. Generally, I tend to still play games but on a minimal basis. There's a spare PS4 in my room from a friend but don't have anything to play for now.

I will buy a PC sometime soon so I can attempt to try out TM2PC. I gave up on that venture long ago since my PC crapped out on me. I've been using laptops for a few years now and wish to get back onto a desktop.

Hopefully you guys have been fine this whole time. Assuming you remembered who I am.

Yea. Still here at least. Other site didn't make it.

Anyways, we're pretty much lurking here now. You can't tell but you are the most recent activity for the last couple days.

Congratulations!

Well, isn't that special? I kinda got the idea seeing as how some threads have its most recent replies dating from months back. Good to see that you're guarding this place from the spammers and such, Mags. Also cool to see that you're alive.

Does anyone attempt to do anything along the lines of Xbox/PS4 parties?

I ain't guarding this place LOL! I'm like the dirty hobo pan handler on a street corner begging for change in here.

I'm still X1. You've been away for so long, I had to clean my friends list.

Got a dollar?

God, I've been on this website since middle school. I'm on my last year of college come September.

I've done a lot of growing up since then, but decided to go for a career in game development.

I still feel like such a jackass for my racist remarks back when TMPS3 almost out. I can't believe I wasn't banned for it. That is not me anymore, and I am almost embarrassed of how much of a little shit I was all those years ago. I was in a bad spot in my life. Bad home life really, and I was just angry at the world. I still am, but not in the same blatant disregard it was 5+ years ago. I went to college in Philly, and really realized what diversity was, and to not be such a close minded piece of shit. I can never take back the stuff I said, but it's something I feel bad about.
I still think new rap is awful though, that will never change.

I went to school for something I love, and I hope I can be successful at it. The more I grow up though, I tend to still be cynical as hell. People treat their lives so recklessly. You have one life to live, and people tend to just settle on shit, or treat themselves horribly. I had terrible anxiety the past year, and had to see a cardiologist for a heart arrhythmia. Luckily my heart is healthy, but that stuff really scared me, and put stuff into perspective. This is life, this is it, make the best of it. Take chances, and do what makes you happy. I think we should all try and move society forward. You guys have seen how sensitive we have been the past few years in the media. The irrelevant shit we fight about, while the world could be so much further ahead. We all need to work together for a better tomorrow.

I've always posted stuff regularly, and the community, as small as it is, was always helpful. I'll continue to lurk and post a few things here and there. I hope you guys get to play my games one day, and I hope success and happiness for all of you guys as life goes on.

Technically, I don't own any of the newer consoles. My friend let me borrow one of his PS4's for some online co-op in F1 2016. Reason for not owning one is that these consoles come out so quick. One day, they bring the XBone slim and now... Xbox One X. It does sound good but for now it'll be PS4 for me.

As long as you don't hang with the wrong crowd, then the rest of your college (perhaps Graduate too?) life will be ok. Some of the people that go to my school, the tuition here is pretty pricey and there was this one dude in my class who has about three probations or something like that on him and treats it like it's nothing. At least he's rich.

Dollar? How about a sammich? Or a six-pack? Bewbs?

I realize I've been off this site again. Oh well.

I mentioned in my last post from several months back that I had gotten an RV. Still living in it, still working as a custodian at the local high school, still alone and depressed... I don't really see myself making much progress. I'm just...chilling pretty much. Taking prozac, though I don't really notice anything different with it, been seeing a therapist, though right now I can't get too far because even though I have a truck that's driveable, it's still not registered and I'm still trying to get that sorted out...

Still trying to look for a broad ever since Crystal broke up with me, but I'm having no luck there whatsoever. Tried applying for food stamps but no response yet; I'm probably not eligible for it anyway.

Although I admit I do kinda miss living in New Jersey, where I am now is still better than living with my family... I do love my family but they're just too stressful to live with...

There's really not much else for me to say. I hope you guys are doing okay.

I know it's been ages, but sorry to hear, man. But keep doing makes you happy and I'm sure things will get better.

Don't know who is still around, but i appreciated the TMA community when i was younger and TMB was a new thing. Hope everyone's doing alright.

Not sure if there's any point to it, but I've had a lot of family tragedies in my life, beginning with my dad dying in a car crash when i was seven.

My mom raised my brother and i as a single parent and a housewife, but managed to make ends meet, largely without us ever having our childhood innocence compromised.

We moved a few times, including renting in a somewhat sketchy neighborhood soon after my dad's death.

Flash forward a decade or so, my brother's become a lawyer and I'm in medical school. He worked and taught while in University to help with experience as well as finances. Within a year of him graduating, he also died in a car accident.

It's just my mom and I at this point, but i go on to finish University myself and am lucky to find a wonderful girl who makes me happy, and we get married.

Not long after moving out, i get the strangest of calls from my mom and realize something's not right, and i rush to pick her up and bring her to the hospital for a check up. My original intention was to make sure it wasn't a heart attack: turns out it was a form of stomach cancer.

Thankfully it's relatively early and I knew everyone who could speed things up at the hospital, and within 3 months she's formally diagnosed, has had her surgery to remove the tumour, and recovered extremely well from the ordeal and can live independently again as she's accustomed to. If anyone's ever doubted it, my mother's got the strength of a lion.

So I'm still working at the hospital, unfortunately my hours are not the best. I basically work 7 days a week, but i realize it's more important to be thankful for what i do have, including health and family.

I guess i probably should mention that I'm from Trinidad & Tobago, if isn't known already. And incidentally, i keep my sanity with art.

Good to hear from you again, Trich, it's been a while~ Sorry to hear about your family, though...

As depressed as my post was, at the same time, I really don't have it too bad either. Even though it's not the best, I am glad I live in an RV. I used to be so fascinated with RV's when I was a kid (they don't call them "Recreational Vehicles" for nothing).

I'm also starting to feel okay with being single. If a girl whom I like and likes me comes my way, great, otherwise, I think I'll just try to make friends instead. That's probably how I might meet someone like that anyway.

And I may be having trouble with getting the truck under my name, but as long as that's taking, even that won't last forever. Even if it ends up never happening, I can always just buy another cheap vehicle and get that under my name instead.

My job still has shit pay but I have some really great co-workers and I do get plenty of time to chill whenever it's not very busy. I'm also thankful that I live cheaply enough that the pay I do get does help me out a lot and at least I'm not in debt like a lot of people are these days.

I still need to do something about my depression, though, that's the main thing that's really holding me back as it really corrupts my thoughts big time. That's why I'm shifting priorities to making friends rather than finding a date.

Sorry if I scared anyone here.
