    Oh crap! Way to go everyone. They just derailed our conversation with the thread Libra! :@ Now what do we do! :P Quick lets spam post this and take it back! :D :P

    Aww... stop making me feel special woman. I'm not supposed to blush and all you know. :P And we're not some hours apart, we're literally half the world and half a day apart. I take it, you're on the east coast then Libra. Because I'm familiar with that midnight timezone too. :) And ofcourse I went to sleep. Eventually. I mean you did keep me up all night. ;) :P

    Well, when design is what you do for a living. Its hard not to be into it. Or think about it. You do it long enough and it most translates into everything you do. I remember wanting to tear my hair out in frustration so many times Ive been out. And all I can see is materials coming together. Table and counter, stool heights. Age of the buildings. Width of the streets. How life spills over into them. How it differs in a small street to how people are on a wider avenue. And floor materials. How they put something together. How beaten brass comes together with granite. And how you can take out the roof in an old prewar industrial loft. And retrofit it with dappled sheet. And make something completely new out of it. And thats all you can see or read, or breathe. And people on the other hand, everyone around you are having fun. Conversations. Jokes. Eating. Drinking. And this is all you're doing instead. Anyways. Now that rant is over. :P

    I know right. Stuffin that hoe. Pocket. -__- And yeah, I get that. I dont get people who put their phones in their back pockets. I dont even put my wallet in there. Who wants their money or their phone to smell of their bum. I mean. But its a strange world. And some people get off of some things. Not me. Whew. Thats what I meant by phone hanging out though. The side or the front. Who made you go thinking of butts though. I wonder... And lady purse! Aha! I get it now. :P

    Hey! How did you know that I could read you all out that clear though! :O :O :O I thought that was my secret. :P ;) But still, stop being cute. Miss I got 2,099 posts, and a problem aint one of them. :P I'm not making you talk THAT much. Just enough. :) But hey, just be warned though. This might not last forever. TechFreak's got his eyes on us. And he's prolly recruiting a bunch more. So much for that bashful and the attention from one person then. We're both gonna be disappearing like the lochness asap then. Get that Libra burrito ready quick to hide into.

    I laughed when I saw that you had to post a separate reply from everyone else just so all that conversation wouldnt get mixed in with the thread. It was funny. And that darn overused word already. Kinda cute. :)

    Greywolf, you old salt. That is a wonderful way of adding more usability to a device. I've seen your other posts pertaining to pen add-ons as well. And while the points you raise about the point offset and screen calibration are legitimate issues. It is more a point of contention with pen hardware than it is for the software/OS or screen tech of it. On your Iconia, btw I love that little baby device, you calibrate it and the OS compensates for the hardware offset in the cursor. Sadly, because our Lumias and WM10 is not inking ready yet, and the OS doesnt accommodate for pen input yet. You dont have the luxury of OS/software compensation for hardware pen/cursor offset just now. Come the RS2 update. I am hoping that it will be built into the phone by then, courtesy Microsoft's emphasis on Inking support of late, and the pending speculated launch of Surface(Rumor) phone.

    If you've ever used the older windows tablets with wacom provided digitisers, you'll learn that there is always a certain degree of cursor offset left. No matter how much you calibrate it. And you learn to draw, paint, or take notes - however you use the medium - naturally compensating/accommodating for that hardware offset because of the difference b/w the digitser/s layer, screen, and the glass itself. Here. You have two/three layers instead of three/four though. So there is that, to give you a better deal between the cursor offset. Its only starting to get better of late now what with Wacom introducing their EMR tech, their Cintiq line of devices, Microsofts NTrig work, and the proliferation of bluetooth input styli/pen.

    But given all that, the 950 is much better than the 640/640XL in terms of missed touches. I would vouch. Because I tend to get much more missed touches, maybe its those darned softkeys but who knows, than I ever did/do on either the ATIV SE, the Lumia 520, or the HTC 8X. It was something about the panels and digitisers they shipped. That was the first thing I noticed. Immediately. The first time I used the 640 too. So you will most probably have a much better experience on the 950. But Libra can be the judge of that here. Since I have never owned this device. :(

    And hey TechFreak! We're not that young that we remind you of old habits and older times mate. :P And yes, guard the convo convoy! Keep that convotrain on that convorail! ^~^ :D But like seriously. Thats funny. Making sure no one derails our convo. I like that! ^_^ Sadly, I only ever have two hoe pockets to stuff and hold things into. And my measly man hands. Only two of those too. Sad times. :(

    And Jack's prolly on Google Fiber. Or in South Korea. Seoul. :P Only two places I know where you can get 50 gigs down in two minutes. :P

    And Libra. Try pulling some pointers on my 640 Battery Life thread for helping with your battery expectations? If you put in the ones that help for you, you might get a better time with that battery then girl. :) ^_^

    Lolol.

    Oops I'm sorry that I kept you up >.< I hope you don't have to work today. Wait, we are? Yep, I'm on the east coast. I'll have to keep that in mind next time xd

    Wow, cool! You probably have some interesting design conversations. I don't think it is a bad thing to notice detail.

    Ooh lol. From what I have noticed, a good amount of my fellow girl friends do that and my sister does too. That's why I thought of that. Lolol.

    Actually I didn't know. Most people are like shocked that I am shy when I say that I am, but somehow you got it off the bat. :o Lol >.< Omg Libra burrito! You're funny.

    Cute might be overused but it's accurate. Haha, I wanted to address you separately xd It's more fun that way. I will recheck out that thread of yours, thanks xd

    I see someone is all super confident about the cuteness they're packing. I like that. ^_^ :D Feisty. :P And hey, I like burritos okay. Especially people burritos! (^~^) :3 Plus, shy unshy people are the best anyways. They're like out there and never there at the same time. So you gotta burrow in and see, find, which side of them do you get. Is fun. And feels nice too. Good nice. ^_^ However, I see someone enjoys their fun seriously. You take it seriously I see :p :D

    Well, you already kept me up all night now. Too late. Cant do anything about it now. :P You're prolly gonna end up doing it again anyways. So its alright really. ^_^ I dont mind and I had a good time. Legit. Was awesome. But I did have work today. Had to go do a site visit and all. Talk a client through. As well as contractor. I really make it sound much more fancier than it is. It was just standing around in the humid heat in a workshop and then outside in the dust, grime and sawdust at the store being renovated. Anyways. So they had to drag my dead body off the bed and throw it out the house to get me up to go and do that stuff. But all done. And dusted now. Ended up going over well too. Since client is an old friend. And thus a very difficult client. Also all informal too. Consequently. Thus. It went over pretty well. Despite all that. Also got my friend who's doing the project with me his notebook upgrades with him along the way too. So is all good. ^_^

    Too much design and too much detail. Also bad. We have no life outside of these tinted lenses now. You spend your time in there long enough. And all your friends are either in the past tense. Or they're also people like you. In the same muck.

    And oh gosh darn! Thats possibly the worst possible place to put your phone in. And I'm not just talking about booty dialing. (Not to be confused with booty calls. Ofcourse.) Easiest way to crack a screen is to rest the full glory of your butt on it. Legit. -__-

    And yes, we definitely are on the other ends of the world. Sad facts. Its. :(

    That is true, I agree with you about that. Haha, I try :P Not many see it, so again you are a lucky one. I'm also pretty serious too lol.

    I know but still xd. Yeah it was fun, glad that it was worth it at least :) Haha yep, for sure. Aw okay, good that you got through work alright and that everything went well. Are you off on Sunday? A curious mind would like to know lol.

    Aw, I see. That sounds sad and also hard at the same time. Hopefully the people in the same place as you aren't too bad right? Well you are also here on Windows Central too, but I get what you mean.

    Lol! Had to try not to laugh too hard enough to crack my wrap. Under the hair dryer at the salon at the moment. I feel the same as you though!

    Aw that's a bummer. :(

    Well after all it is supposed to be a flagship device so high expectations of this tier of devices is to be expected.



    Haha, these essays remind me of old habits and besides it's a good read.

    I can totally relate about being given multiple phones to hold... then again I usually have a lot pockets.




    That makes my connection slower than molasses on ice in comparison... http://forums.windowscentral.com/ima...20/grincry.png.

    Yeah, totally get how frustrating it is when you put on a cover perfectly to find there is a rogue hair lurking underneath the surface...

    Agree with being cute or feisty Libra? :D :P :D :D :D Bwahahaha!!! This is so much fun woman. :P And staahhppp making me feel all special alreadddyyyy, or I'm going to turn all awkward shy tooooo. You know guys dont do that. Not unsecretly anyways! :O :@ I'm laughing right now. And I spend enough time being serious. It can get pretty rotten pretty quick you know. :/ So best dispense with the rotten bits here. ^_^

    Well I know for a fact that it was definitely worth it. If thats what you mean Libra. ^_^ And is it just me, or am I sensing it right when I'm thinking that I'm going to like my Sunday more if I'm off on said day. ;)

    And it might come across as surprising as anything. Or however you want to put it. But I'm not a big people's person actually. And I usually make sure to keep my distance. From everyone. In a very undistancy way. It usually works out. Too well. In a very sad way. But. Le sigh. Lets just leave that be. Plenty of life left to talk bummed out. :) But hey, I picked up on the forums at around a good time. For me. So it actually does help. Thank you. ^~^ :)

    And you feel the same as me. About butts. Now what does that sound very wrong to me miss. Smh. Tut tut tut. Libra! I never. Even. Oh my GAWD. How could you! :D But butts are pretty awesome. They're really great actually. Until the eventual fart. Especially if its a nasty one in your vicinity. Thats a little hard not to react to. But all in all. Pretty great little things. If they dont break phones. I dont mind. ^_^

    And damn, whats that SALONTREATMENTDO. O_O O_O O_O O_O O_O O_O O_O *SECRETLYSUPERCURIOUS* :$ But yesh yesh, laugh just a little too hard. Crack that wrap just a teensy tinsy bit. It'll make it all perfect. Just trust me on this one! O_O

    And yeah. So much a good day at work. My life is one long ducking jinx. Just had a long session of getting cussed out by said client/friend. Over the phone. Because we apparently screwed over his design, and his money. For our kicks. And that we fix the mess and pay for the 'duckups'. And that my friend partnering with me on this whole crap project walk out. Or it falls through. I've spent the last few hours sitting seething here. -__- Also why no reply. Wouldnt have been nice to sit down and write you down a reply that wasnt fair to you. So there. Whew. My life story in a big nutshell.

    I meant cute. I'm too sweet to be fiesty :P Haha! I can't say that I'm too sorry xd

    Yep that's exactly what I mean. You're sensing correctly. Wouldn't want to make you super tired for work. Uh, again I mean, lol.

    No way! I would have never guessed that. You're a really friendly person though :o Aw okay. You're welcome, glad that you are here :)

    LOL @ the whole butts thing.

    Just regular maintenance to have my hair look pretty lol. Nothing out of the ordinary. Haha, I couldn't do that, but I did laugh though.

    Oh no, I'm so sorry :( That sucks! That's messed up. I can only imagine how frustrated you feel right now.

    Well. I can take cute. Any day. All day. Every day! Just saying ma'am. But you know what. Never say no until it happens. And you never no not feisty. Until you are. ;) Just saying. ^_^ :3

    And no, tomorrow is not work day. Not anymore. ;) :P But tomorrow is the sit down and have that ugly conversation with your friend that neither of you want to have. And wrap this up. See if we're on board the project. Or not. Out. Dont underestimate my ability to not tire though. I wrote stamina. Then I had a smh moment. And backspaced. But we stay up for days on end when projects are due on deadlines. All together. Not a healthy lifestyle. Definitely. :P

    But yes. Mama taught me never to say no, when I girl asks. And I've never done otherwise. Cross my heart. So yes. I'd rather like my Sunday. And have it too. Than otherwise. So I'm all free for you. On said Sunday. You just have to show. :) ^_^ ALTHOUGH. Uh. What exactly are you going to do. Make me super tired for work. o_O? *shiver me timbers* Women are so scary! Somebahdy! Haaalppp!!! :O But I like how you only had a problem with super tired. Cute. :)

    What, dont tell me you dont like butts. You just agreed with me not thirty minutes ago. Mean person! >_< :@

    But hey, really friendly doesnt mean friends. Just means easy to be around. And comfortable. My circles pretty small. :/

    And dont tell me about things I cant see. >_< :@ Hmph. Such a horrible horrible person. Shame on you! (I feel so mean right now. Its weird. O_O I dont know what to do! Urckh. Arkh. *Dies*)

    If you say so >.<

    Ohh okay. Ahh, good luck with that. I hope that you'll have the best possible outcome! Haha, I can believe that for sure.

    LOL. I'll show up but probably not as early as I did today :). Not a morning person, and I also have church. I don't think I would do anything out of the ordinary...but what is even ordinary anymore haha.

    I think I'm indifferent about butts. Since you said not to tell you about things you can't see, I can't elaborate on that personally xd

    Ohh okay, I see. That makes sense. I don't think a small circle is a bad thing if you feel like you can trust them, unless you're like trying to seriously date people. Then it sucks. I would say story of my life, but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    You did ask though, so that's why I answered :P. Too shy to ever post a picture of myself wide open in general, would rather save such things for social medias lol o_o

    Hey! Dont scrunch your nose at me little girl! I didnt say you werent cute. I said. Possibly feisty. Until proven otherwise. :P Hehe.

    And I wouldnt count on that really. I've been on a run of the worst possible luck. For a very long time now. And especially much more pronounced these past few months. Remember those PMs. The very first few. :)

    Hey. Church is important! ^_^ Faith, whatever it is you have it in, is always important. Its what makes the world go around, and keeps what little humanity we have left intact. In us. Because thats where the kind smiles, and lit eyes, for no real reason, come from. :) Whether its in your religion, in people, your work. Yourself. Its important. :) So make sure you do that first okay! :@ >_<

    But yeah. I am definitely not a morning person either. I am often a sleep at morning person. Never a morning person. But early mornings are really pretty. Especially the sunrise. And the air. Itself. It smells of the new day. :) And what do you mean out of the ordinary! O_O :O :O :O What were you even planning. *Runs away scared* Kidding. But lets wait and see for the morrow. We'll learn what the new normal is soon enough. ^_^

    Very funny okay. Stop being such a mean tease. I take that back. You can totally tell me about things I cant see. Serious! :P :D

    Small circles, and insular people. Eventually something's gotta give. Go bust. Anyways. :) And dating generally sucks. So does skirt chasing. Unless you're a certain brand of person called a boi. Starting with an F. That. Or a manhoe. In this case anyways. I dare'nt ever speak for the fairer gender though. Too risky scary, that. But I can totally understand the story of my life part of it. But anyways, promises and stories usually dont pan out. Past the honeymoon period. Seeeeee! Told you! Jaded bitter soul. You wouldnt believe me. :P

    And well. Since you now you've told... But you do know what that last sentence you wrote in there means right? Think carefully! :D Bwahahahahaha! I feel so evil right now. For having found you out on that. :D :D :D :D :D But yeah, I did wonder for a long while though. Why does this person, who is obviously an old member. And very visible. Never have an avatar. Like. Not even a picture of a kitty. Then I figured. Eventually. :) ^~^

    And I think it is about time. Right. That we officially petition to rename this thread. Libra and Weren, or Weren and Libra's excuse of a 950/650 thread. Or Libra and Weren's Derail Thread. Or Pretend Rail Thread. Or some such thing already. Because this is practically a farce. We're running an underground aboveground thread of derail under the guise of talking about phone sizes. On that note. We do bring up a phone or two. Every ten posts or so. So I'm pretty sure still relevant.

    First, I'm dead with the name suggestions, but agreed lol! Went for a dinner break of some pizza.

    I do remember the PMs, yes but I'm still optimistically hoping for you to get a good break in there.

    Haha, okay. I'll take that :)

    I'll do that for sure. You are right though, I happen to really like my church anyway.

    I love the "sleep at morning" comment, I'll take your word for it. Yep we will see for sure :)

    Lol, okay. Going to keep that in mind. As for what I was going to say, I'm indifferent about butts, because I don't really notice them. Also I don't really have much of one.

    Yeah or it can be an awesome circle for life! Not really life, but a good while. Oh goodness, don't remind me. I'll confess that I haven't dated seriously. I have had a few relationships but like seriously dating and hoping for the best from whoever you meet is kind of exhausting. Then again, I am kind of an oddball with that anyway. I still can't believe that you are a bitter soul, but okay. xd

    LOL. You're half right. The other half is that I am indecisive about what to put. I'm weird about forums, but obviously for my other social medias, I have a picture of myself. My reasons are kind of layered, but it goes down to the fear of judgement essentially. Fear of being judged as a girl into tech, fear of being judged for my race, fear of being judged by my appearance, etc but really those three.

    Greywolf, you old salt. That is a wonderful way of adding more usability to a device. I've seen your other posts pertaining to pen add-ons as well. And while the points you raise about the point offset and screen calibration are legitimate issues. It is more a point of contention with pen hardware than it is for the software/OS or screen tech of it. On your Iconia, btw I love that little baby device, you calibrate it and the OS compensates for the hardware offset in the cursor. Sadly, because our Lumias and WM10 is not inking ready yet, and the OS doesnt accommodate for pen input yet. You dont have the luxury of OS/software compensation for hardware pen/cursor offset just now. Come the RS2 update. I am hoping that it will be built into the phone by then, courtesy Microsoft's emphasis on Inking support of late, and the pending speculated launch of Surface(Rumor) phone.

    If you've ever used the older windows tablets with wacom provided digitisers, you'll learn that there is always a certain degree of cursor offset left. No matter how much you calibrate it. And you learn to draw, paint, or take notes - however you use the medium - naturally compensating/accommodating for that hardware offset because of the difference b/w the digitser/s layer, screen, and the glass itself. Here. You have two/three layers instead of three/four though. So there is that, to give you a better deal between the cursor offset. Its only starting to get better of late now what with Wacom introducing their EMR tech, their Cintiq line of devices, Microsofts NTrig work, and the proliferation of bluetooth input styli/pen.

    But given all that, the 950 is much better than the 640/640XL in terms of missed touches. I would vouch. Because I tend to get much more missed touches, maybe its those darned softkeys but who knows, than I ever did/do on either the ATIV SE, the Lumia 520, or the HTC 8X. It was something about the panels and digitisers they shipped. That was the first thing I noticed. Immediately. The first time I used the 640 too. So you will most probably have a much better experience on the 950. But Libra can be the judge of that here. Since I have never owned this device. :(

    I enjoy the use of a pen on both my W3 and 640 XL, I am no artist and my hand writing/printing is about the level of your average 7 year old

    I do think screen quality plays a roll here, and I will guess that the same pen on a Lumia 950 will be closer to my W3 then the 640 XL. I also think the code is in our phones now, just not switched on.....until connected to a larger screen via Continuum, as I have heard the draw function is in OneNote on Continuum but I can not confirm this as I do not have a dock or 950 XL as of yet.

    Now not the same as Ink support, I can kind of Ink on my phone with the use of apps + screen cap much like I did with your post above on my 640 XL
    ( Underline done via on screen ruler+Pen in Notebook Pro )

    My feeling is Microsoft is dragging their feet on this, and the only reason I can think of for such a delay is there must be a Surface Phone in the wings, and Ink is something they want to tie into it. Something they want to push in enterprise....but I am not an insider so this is just a gut feeling.

    Yeah, me too. Couldnt come up with a single decent name suggestions. I was half thinking of redacting all the lame names I came up with. Then I went all. Okay. Whatever. I came up with bad names. Might as well just own with it. But yeah. I fell asleep waiting. It was five-ish. In the AM. My four/five hours of sleep a day is still working out. Better than my 12 hours of sleep routine anyways. So there's that. :)

    Well, I've given up on getting a break out of it. But lets leave that. I still do things like I have the absolute best run of golden luck. Even when I know otherwise. So I'm one of those stupid people.

    And good! You better take it! ^_^ And its good that you like your Church. Being religious, about anything, is always a good thing to have in your life. :) Sunday already here though. :P But I know your free Sunday probably wont start until another half a day or so. After your morning and noon is past. :)

    Hey! All butts are born equal! Dont discriminate against yours. >_< :@ And all shapes are nice. :)

    Dont worry, I am completely crap at making relationships work out over the long haul. I'm an exhausting person to be with/around. For the many number of substantiated or otherwise reasons. I dont do much by way of the hoping. Still go through the motions of it as if I do. So what can I say. Usually works out for the better for the other person though. After they're done. :) So hey, that dont remind me train works both ways yaknow. :P But yeah. A good person. Or few. For a good while. Without the emotional tax. That sounds nice. :) ^_^ And definitely bitter old soul. :P

    Yeah, figured kind of as much. I suck at making decisions too. Is kind of a fact. And I usually dont care about putting up a picture. Of myself either way. I usually have something or the other up anyways eventually. But mostly not myself. But I just figured, heck whatever. This time. Doesnt really matter. Even if I'm not fond of my own pictures that is. :P I'm much more cautious about social medias though, but thats just my tin foil hat acting up I suppose.

    But hey. You cant ever stop doing something just because you think the world is going to pass judgement on you. Because its going to do that anyways. So wear your badges proudly. Whether they be your race, gender. Appearance, interests. I get called out on race, religion, clothes, appearance, country, ethnicity, interests. Most everything I can think of. And most things that help make who I am. Doesnt mean I stop being them. Just one more thing to take in stride. Thats all. :) The world's not getting any kinder. But you can. :) ^_^

    Well you are right about that Grey. The feature has been written in across much of the Windows OS already. Its just they seem to be so stubborny fast about enabling support for it into their mobile OS. Only reason I can think of as well is also that they're saving up on it for their halo devices. Otherwise losing so much ground to Samsung/Android over something they can write in and enable so easily. And also you will have a much better time of it with the 950. So you can definitely rest assured about that. :)

    And your handwriting recognition is down pretty pat. Actually. Only way you can have it any better than this is by having a device meant for pen and tablet input. I use mine for the occasional pretend art. So this is very good! :)

    Aw okay, four hours of sleep sounds hard. If you say that it is better, I'm going to take your word for it.

    I see. I still don't think you are stupid though. Every outcome is not always meant to be the same forever. :)

    Yeah that's right. Because I'm so excitable (lol), I am typing this before I even go. It's 9am, need to get ready soonish. I'll need a better understanding of our time difference...for reference xd

    Alright, if you say so xd

    Aw okay. Sometimes it is possible that the right person hasn't come yet. I think it will come, don't know when though. Now I can say that I see the bitter old soul thing xd

    Ohh okay. Noted. Well, it's a nice picture that you have here :)

    That's true, you are right. That's a great way to look at it. I know that you are right but I'll rather not here. In a good amount of scenarios, I own it. I can imagine that you do, people suck a good amount of the time xd

    Its okay. I make sure to manage to die somewhere in the middle of it all during the day anyways. Its good to die another day. Every day! ^_^

    I count on my stupidity pretty much. To get me through the day. The day I choose to get some sense back in my head is the day I turn that switch off. And stop being me. And start being successful in life.

    I know you are. I mean excitable. And typing this out first thing in the morning. Both. :P Hope you dont waste all your day on me instead of doing the things youre supposed to Libra. And lets see. How's about this. For timezones. And time differences. Turn back the hour hand by three hours on your clock. And flip the AM to PM. :) ^_^

    I do say so! :@ Hmph! And when enough right people pass through. You start looking for the left people. Because two lefts always makes a right. Or some such thing. But eventually, you realise that any person can be the right person. So its all just a whole load of talk. Really. But I see that now you see. Finally. :P

    And thank you! ^~^ One of the few that I have. Even rarer because it has a suit in it. I'm not much of a big picture person. At all. Sad factoids. Me and pictures dont gel well together.

    And hey, its alright. Its your choice anyways. And I can understand choosing not to. Especially with the amount of crap I get. Even here, back home for a lot of my lifestyle choices. And this is not even talking about the absolute sh*t that happens everytime I travel. I can understand the not doing it part. Its smarter that way anyways. :) ^_^

    Okay, this is take 2 (lol). I typed most of my reply to this post before church on my phone but somehow I closed mTalk or something so all of my responses are gone (of course). I was so disappointed that this happened to me. Anyway, here goes.

    Sleep is important. Hopefully you are getting okay sleep at least. If you say so xd

    Wait, why can't you be both? I don't understand. Shouldn't it be possible to be both yourself and successful?

    >.< At the time, I wanted to type that you wouldn't be interrupting much, but you know how the day went. That time difference explanation makes sense, thanks for that. Going to keep that in mind. Just in case, I added the time to my world clock on my phone. xd

    That's a fair point. I think different people have different relationship/personal requirements that are important and need to be satisfied in order to be considered, beyond the whole "I like them and they are cute looking". Not like petty ones but things that might be big. Yep, I do. :o

    You're welcome! :) Really? I would have never known. Guessing that you are more likely to prefer to be behind the lens, rather than in front. I say that based on what you mentioned about you and photography before.

    Aw, I'm sure that you have reasons for your lifestyle choices. That sucks that you get crap for it though. As long as no one is out here asking why I'm not married yet, I'm good :P Luckily, I live in an area where it isn't shocking to be my age and not married. That's true, but now you know that about me, in this space xd

    Yeah, I do take 2's all the time. Because karma and luck, both dont like me very much. :( And yeah, sorry about the near permanent absence. I've been having one of my episodes. Again. Not too surprising. But still. I'm sorry. :( On that note, you shouldnt be worrying about sleep atleast. I've been going 16 hours a day pretty strong. :P And no, success doesnt mingle with that. There needs to be a certain unerring drive for that, the ability to step over things, and people. Doing things that dont necessarily always mix with the morality and ethics of who you are.But anyways, I digress.

    And are you sure about keeping that time difference on your clock. You did warn yourself all on your own you know. :P And hey, you're not the only person who gets bothered about why there arent lots of little yous crawling around you know. :P But such is life. I'm not, however, too fond of people, or relationships for that matter. They're all pretty toxic anyways. Even the ones you want. :)

    So brief. Wouldnt have expected that out of myself now. Would I. :/

    Haha @ the brief comment. Well, sometimes we can surprise ourselves :) For the record, I don't mind if you are brief or on the essays track. It's all good either way.

    Aw okay. I appreciate the apology, thank you. Sorry to hear that you had an episode :( Whoa, 16 hours?! Do you ever like, actually crash? Haha yeah, that's true. I have experienced it, kind of, when I was in a relationship with a guy who was 6 hours back from me. That was SO fun and to add to that, I was in my senior year of university. That was interesting...

    Ah I see. You would know. If you say so. I think I get where you are coming from though, I mean in a general sense.

    Lol! I'm sure. I wouldn't do it if I wasn't :) It's helpful to me, especially with those awkward time breaks when it is noon/midnight on one side. How did I warn myself? :o Ohh, yeah the kid conversation. Not going to happen (more like I wish it wouldn't happen), but I do feel for you there. Noted, but you have to have some exceptions, right? Guessing you mean more like people in general.

    I can confirm screen quality plays a big role in this !!!! I was looking around for a back up phone, and saw Microsoft has the Lumia 650 reduced in price, so I figured go new for less then take a chance on used.

    The 650 OLED has a far better feel with the Pen I use then the 640 XL LED, also by far much less off set to deal with !!!

    The end result is also better !!!!!!!
