[QUOTE=.Greninja;52945620]Heard it too, they are announcing that he is dead but it's better to wait for more confirmation.[/QUOTE] Is there any reason they would want to kill Saleh if you know? I thought they were on the same side?
[QUOTE=Griffster26;52945687]Is there any reason they would want to kill Saleh if you know? I thought they were on the same side?[/QUOTE] They not anymore. Update: It has been confirmed that Ali Abdullah Saleh is dead
4 years of total madness and somehow it still feels like 2014 for me. Am actually impressed that I survived this long happening to accept the fact that death is technically somewhere, out there, closer to me than others. So to that I say victory for another year of survival. ain't feeling better about myself but it sure as hell beats not having limbs and extensive amount of burned scars around my body. So I wish you all a Happy New Year, It has been, a [I]very[/I], [I]very[/I], long year.
Happy new year man, and here's to plenty more for ya!
happy new year! Im happy for you
Stay alive and stay sane, man. You've made it this far, no reason you can't make it to the end of the fighting.
although you have been through hell I hope there are better days ahead. My dad was in a war and he was once very depressed, but he's gotten better and he says everything is uphill after the worst passes
Holy shit this first month of the year is fucking disaster. I thought things were looking up cause apparently my constant pain that I used to have last year is gone or basically reduced significantly, and due to that am actually waking up without pain anymore.it was like a first step of something good this year. I was wrong and we just reached half of the month. we keep finding dead rats, at our own home and, they not even mutilated by my cats, they actually ignoring it and it gave us a very huge concern that there is something wrong here. everytime I had to throw away dead rats with whatever I cover my hands with cause am sure as shit don't want to get whatever diseases the rats possessed to have them die like that. after so few days I had to bury my own favourite cat, and it just died and it was pretty young in it's age and there was nothing to suggest that it died physically, it just lay there on the ground all the sudden and out of breath with eyes looking upwards. and also in that day I realised that tourist cats that I like to call, basically not my own cats but they like to visit my garden every once and awhile. are now gone, there's no more cats anymore except for mine which is only 2 left now. after that day I just found out that my own neighbour poisoned my cat. they literally just decided to kill every cat unfortunate enough to be in their layout, they serve poisoned food and water. and they also the cause of many poisoned rats that we keep finding. isn't that hazardous to literally poison everything? poisoned rats is gonna cause problems to everyone and people will find dead cats in their homes. This is not how you handle animals, in our religion we shouldn't cause harm or kill unless you have too since animals have souls too. this month has been terrible. We keep finding increasing news that a group of people are knocking at people's doors to collect children or teenagers to train and fight for them, even going to government funded schools and also to an extend, private schools which at one point teachers had a rage to protect their students. nothing is safe anymore.

You're an incredibly strong person for enduring your circumstances thus far. I hope that things start to look up once again for you. Hang in there, my friend. I know that one day you will emerge with a smile on your face. Stay safe, pal.
Bumping for update, hope you're still kicking around
Kept you waiting, huh? My last post was a year ago and at that time I wasn't updating much, mostly due to the fact there wasn't anything interesting happening to me, until that day. I been trying to figure out a way out of the city, it isn't easy, it never was, especially after finding out that half of my life would have been ruined. due to bad luck my own ministry exam certificate wasn't good enough, in reality I thought I did horrible but it seems like the grades was given out of random. I thought nothing of it, since that certificate was only usable in my country and I already had my high school diploma for outside studies. but it was taking a while and I decided that I want to study here for a bit until I figure out a uni / college outside my country. turns out the uni that I used to accept high school diploma only accepts ministry certificates. It's bullshit but I believe it, the houthis enforced that law so I was in a pickle, but since I had nothing to do I had to go out of my way to see other ways to enter, alot of people suggested to simply restart a year, and I simply refused multiple times, I already have my high school diploma and I ain't wasting a year for a 50/50 chance grading for a certificate that I can only use in one area. At the time, my brother was visiting me, he was trying to help me with the situations by going to some sort higher ups that are in charge with certifications (Probably could have worded that better but I only know it in Arabic terms oof) although they used him and also took he's kindness for granted, which lend to a huge downfall. After a course of days, turns out that my own brother handed them original certifications of my high school papers but, they never gave it back, they accused us of faking the papers and refused to give it back, and even did claims which is death to America and all that sorts (All because I was studying in an American School which has existed even before the Houthis days), it gone to the point where they contacted my own school and we caused them trouble just by existing. Words spread in their business, to the point where we tried to talk to one of the employers and just straight out been called no, they have me logged in as someone not to be dealt with. By that time my life felt like a havoc, years of my life just gone in an instant. my own mother was crying in her room speaking to her relatives about the situation, it was just one chaos after another. and to add salt to the wound, the same person who took my papers, was trying to scam us and demanded us money to return my papers, it wasn't cheap at all, or reasonable. so we never complied. We had backup papers, but they weren't stamped or approved so they were next to useless, or so we thought, turns out at Aden we have relatives there with ties to education system there, with that, a long bus ride, in the most, hottest freaking weather, we managed to get there to get our papers stamped, including new passports (since ours was going to be expired and if we renewal ours in Sana'a fewer countries would accept it due to relations to houthis) it was tough but we managed through, we met with people that we haven't seen for AGES, time files when you stuck in a hell hole doesn't it?, after we settled with everything we tried our best to not let anyone know about what we did, we were afraid if anyone knew, words might go out and the education system would come for us, or more specifically the person who took away my papers. months has passed, we finally found a university that would accept me, although we found out that the airports were in the other cities.., and dozens of traveling were required just to reach the destination, so you can imagine that I kinda did some sort of around the world in 80 days style. There were some ups and some bullshit downs But so far I think it's worth it, especially now, I still haven't adjusted. but I think I can do it. but. for now I think this might be the end for this thread. for now. since of course, if you look at the location I posted this, I ain't in Yemen no more. Thank you all for the support and for anyone who read this thread for the past 4 years, you all truly helped me mentally in these long years.. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/237151/c6a56e56-5b1a-42cb-a849-a79b0794121a/squarelocky.png Heads up since I will stop posting updates here, but if you want to still see me do stuff I guess these 3 links exist! https://twitter.com/WheatleyGrim (Twitter) Wheatley's Lair (Tumblr) https://www.instagram.com/wheatleygrim/ (Instagram)
