 :accomplished: Hello there! I'm WithFurvor, but you can call me Winters if you want or WF or anything really. Just don't call me late to dinner. I'm a writer with a couple of stories up on SoFurry and FurAffinity, and I also make a little music here and there.  I post stories every other Tuesday but I'm trying to get up to a better speed with that. My fursona is a blue house cat with black arm and chest markings. I used to be a part of the furry community a long time ago and am reintegrating to make friends and see if I can't get some commissions eventually. :3

Anyway, glad to be here at Furrie Haven!

Hey there Grim! Sure I remember ya! I'm not exceedingly active here either I am afraid, hence the late reply and all.. I'm in the middle of the very beginning of my master's thesis, so I'm kinda busy myself.. Sorry to hear about all the hardships.. I really do hope things will turn a brighter coin for you soon. Still, nice to see you around again!

I'm sure I was friends with a lot of members here, but if you're referring to the IRL friend that referred me here it was Darkly Yours, not Puppet Master. I saw the Discord server post already and tried searching for it but it doesn't show up in my results :o

Hiya!

Of course I remember you.  You and Puppet Master were friends, right?  Wow, it really has been a while.  Glad to see you thought enough of this place to return. *hugs* :3

Yes it's not really that active here anymore, but there is still the feeling of it being a family.  Most of the activity is over on our Discord server, which Kat linked to here > http://www.furriehaven.com/forums/index.php?topic=5984.msg119240

Nice to see you're ok, even with all the hardships.  We've all been going through plenty of changes ourselves, but it's nice to reconnect. ^^

Wow... It has been a long time. Nine years. I'm not sure anyone would remember me. Back when I was last posting I was just graduating high school and in love with someone I was convinced I was going to marry. It's nice to see some of the original crew from back then are still posting here. An update on my end since I was last active (beware, barely any of it is positive):

- I was broken up with via text message by that "someone" I mentioned earlier
- I found out that the missionary group she belonged to was actually a sex cult and that our entire relationship was just her trying to recruit me
- I started smoking cigarettes
- I studied computer science and artificial intelligence at a community college, but dropped out
- I became a very reputable software developer via open-source contributions
- I worked for one of the world's largest digital media agencies remotely (lost the job because the CEO was a womanizing douche who got carried away with his harassment and ended up getting caught and judged and the company disappeared into the ether)
- Moved out and lived on my own in a different city
- My parents got divorced
- My mother went to rehab for benzodiazapene addiction
- One of my closest and oldest friends committed suicide
- I started several failed startups
- I had a motorcycle accident and couldn't code for months, so I couldn't support one of my open source tools and received death threats via email (my real name associated with my work so that scared me) and I took a long break from the internet and coding in general
- I began playing FPS shooters at a competitive level
- I became a rapper, won a few cyphers
- I met someone new who I was kinda "dating" but she had a misunderstanding of one tiny situation which ultimately led to the end of our friendship
- My brother who emigrated to the UK visited because he was having mental issues
- My brother was institutionalized for clinical insanity (he believes he is being stalked by a massive global organisation)
- My mother was diagnosed with cancer
- I had to get back into coding to help the family's financial situation and got a job as a senior developer
- The job turned out to be hyper toxic
- My family was held at gunpoint during a home invasion on Father's day this year
- I quit smoking
- Me quitting smoking revealed some major health issues with my teeth
- Medical aid turned down my request for authorization
- I spent every cent I earned this year and put myself back in debt just to afford the surgery which I'm having done tomorrow or I risk losing my teeth

I think 2019 has been the hardest year for me, emotionally speaking.

I figured reconnecting with my old self and people from my past might help me navigate this challenging period life has thrown at me, so I will be around for a while. Quite a busy person IRL though, so won't be active for more than a few hours a week. That being said, it's nice to see you all again ^^

Glad to hear it :)

Yeah, sayings like that make me feel... odd... because there are people who are doing a lot better than me, but also people doing a lot worse... I'm at this weird place where, yeah, my problems are mostly small, but I have lots and lots of them so they add up --- but I don't have really horrible ones like physical illness or disability, so... yeah...  I am sad for people who have cancer and am glad I only have depression, but I also feel jealous of the people that have neither... so I feel bad/bad/good... if that makes any sense (which it may not... I had like 2 hours of sleep last night thanks to issues with my PC and then my Phone... plus basic insomnia... like I said, all minor problems but a large pile of them...)

Thank you, I have a few options on the horizon... but the horizon is still a ways off... and if things get any worse I may take you up on that chat...

wow, I had no idea, which is ironic since, not counting you, I've known two other ppl from that area and played online games with at least another dozen over the years... Thank you

Well, while there's always people who has it worse than you, that doesn't invalidate your own problems. It might sometimes help to put it in perspective, and make things that seem bigger than they are less looming and threatening, but they are still perfectly valid.

Feel free whenever you need an ear. PM me for either a Telegram or a Discord too if you want. I may not be a certified therapist, but I'm used to hear people out, and I've been known to -occasionally- give some half-decent advice too.

Norwegians adapt to the English standards when online, so we answer "fine, fine" and such, but yeah. We have no qualms about telling you about our day, the recent water damage to our house, that asshole at the bus today, etc. etc. if you ask us how we are. Most of the time you'll get a "Oh, just fine.", but certainly not always. I had no idea up until a while back that it was pretty much impolite to actually answer the question. Or, if not impolite, then certainly weird/awkward when people just want to small-talk.

Also, have this song about how it could always be worse.

Y'know I've been part of this fandom for like, 12 years now. I still haven't ever really expressed it outside of the online world. Nor do I really have a need to. It's more of a respite than a lifestyle for me.
