Title: Runescape and schoolwork


Lamb Bug - January 23, 2009 01:56 PM (GMT)
Recently, a lot of Ancient Legion's members have left or are going inactive because of schoolwork difficulties. I just wanted to reiterate my previous claim that no one will be punished, looked down on, or in any way frowned upon by leaving the clan to concentrate on schoolwork. In fact, I'd recommend cutting back on your time BEFORE you get D's and F's in school. I and everyone in the clan won't have a problem with this: your future is at stake. Do what you need to do and ensure your education.

If anyone really knows they should be spending more time on school but they haven't managed to tear themselves away, I can give them tough love :angry: :wub: and suspend their account so they don't have an incentive to keep coming on. :blink:

Lamb, this is a great idea, I plan to still be here and you have a valid point. Please everyone, don't be like me and screw your life over. School comes first, and always over Runescape... It should look like this on your list of important things in life...

1.) School
2.) School
3.) School
4.) School
5.) Friends and Family
6.) School
7.) School
8.) School
9.) School
-----many many numbers later-----
99.) School
100.) Runescape

But if you are underaged, my list of priorities is better. I thought of the children lol. My gf is happy I'm at least taking a break from RS, she wants some more "wolf" time. lol

Kevinsaurus - January 23, 2009 04:33 PM (GMT)
lolz that works too ;)

rsw armoury - January 23, 2009 07:30 PM (GMT)
there's plenty of time for both school and rs. In the extra time, you can do stuff like eat and sleep.

If there is anyone out there like me, then RS comes first. I don't even have to try in school and I pass with A's. :D skillz...

But then again, next year might be different... -.-

You all guys are right.
You may also expect me to have breaks on oct/nov, this year, and the subsequently ones. For in brazil, the longer college break is during dec/jan, not jun/jul :).

Currently, you might think I'm the most useless person in the whole world:
1. I got no gf (that's true... :()
2. I got no job
3. College hasn't started yet (I don't even know whether I was accepted or not)
4. I rarely go out with my friends (once or twice a month for bbq and pool tables:))
5. So... the sum of those four points result in: Runescape is currently my first priority... :(

OK. My reasons that justify that I'm not a useless bum are:
1. I'm training hitting on girls with my girlfriends for when I get into college
2. I sent some cv's already to some places.
3. Uh.... I'm waiting for the college application result. (there's nothing I can do right now :( - I actually play RS a lot not to think of that)
4. I'm the one that organizes the bbq's and bar trip's
5. The sum of those four mean: Hell, yeah... I got a RL :P

My point is: I know RS is an wonderful game, cheap, and easy to play and to make friends (even if they stop playing RS *hint, hint*). But as long you still get a hold on your RL, you can enjoy RS. Image, how would you enjoy RS with no paycheck to pay for membership (for f2p'ers, how would you even pay for the eletricity bill to play computer or to pay to the LAN house?), how would you enjoy RS with no one to support you in RL? Let's say one's close parent dies. You come to AL's forum, and release the stress. We would all post: "Sorry for that... I know how it is to lose someone." For five mins, you would surely be fine. But as soon you turn off your computer, who will be there to help you? You know... your parents aren't going to budget your life forever, my mom always says...
At last, but not least, what a 99'er 138 cbt supa-dupa char would do for your life? What will you do when you achieve all your RS's goals? Imagine RS is Half Life, and that's the only game you've played ever, and you don't intend to buy another one soon. When you finally launch that last rocket at Nihilant, you turn off the game, and look at the desktop. You are 30 years old, with no job, no gf, only a nice picture of Gordon Freeman as your desktop wallpaper. Then what? Got my idea?

I'm sorry, but that's how life is.

PS.: After writing this I completely lost my will to play RS for the next hour... I think I'm gonna do something else for now.

School should really be higher, but it's your preference... Why'd we all start to put our priority lists on here.. Oh wait that was me :lol:

emad - January 23, 2009 11:19 PM (GMT)
Star here's the thing. When I do try in school I still got mostly d's and c's. I was tired of getting frustrated after studying for hours then still getting d's so I just gave up.

starwolf_ftw - January 23, 2009 11:22 PM (GMT)
I see. I hope you can do the best you do then :D

emad - January 23, 2009 11:23 PM (GMT)

Well... Physics is waaay easy! Just remember that Q = m.c.ΔΘ, and you'll be fine. :P

Well, look for another job while you still have one, and then quit when you have another job as back up. I wish I had the opportunity to do that, but I knew this moment would come soon on my part, just not as quickly as it did.
