Here's praying the mods don't notice/are in a forgiving mood, given that it's been several years (dear lord it's been actual literal years) since I was active here.
Hi again, if you recognize me. Hi anyway, if you don't.
I remember how this site changed my life, back when I was a freshman (now senior!) in high school. Let's be real: it turned me into a semi-elitist, narcissistic, grammar-obsessed, self-righteous, irritating-as-all-hell person. Maybe it was my true transition into becoming a teenager.
But don't think, for a single second, that I regret coming here.
This place introduced me to the internet. To Nerdfighteria and gifs and internet debate. It taught me how to write more eloquently and type more quickly. And I made friends here, really great people.
I always enjoyed coming here. I enjoyed debating and making fun of fangirls and laughing about stupid things with my friends. Later, after I was banned, I enjoyed making alt accounts and getting angry at the mods and being a troll. Like I said, I wasn't the best person.
I have a Tumblr now. I love it, but it's really not the same. I don't have Tumblr friends. I used to make friends here by being snarky on a post, but that opportunity isn't quite available over there.
Basically, I miss what this site used to be for me, despite the idiocy I recognize as I look back. I wish it wasn't dead, I wish the oldies and the fangirls and everyone else still posted. Ah, well.
Thanks for reading my vaguely incoherent ponderings. I'll be going now. See you 'round.
Hallo, Jacen. How're you?
Just trying to stay afloat. How about you?
Afloat in what? School? Work? Life in general?
Ah, I'm alright. I think I'm getting sick, though, which sucks.
I get what you mean - it all sounds very familiar. :)
How are you?
Doing really good! I'm up at college now, which is really weird sounding. There's more work than I thought and ohfrickitscold-er than I thought. Lots of fun though, I'm having a good time and keeping on top of things. How're you doing?
Haha, that sounds good. You're in the US, still, right? What part of the country?
I'm a second-semester high school senior now, and I want out so bad. But I'm alright. Only went back last week, so the workload isn't unbearable yet.
Yep, still in the US. I'm up at Idaho actually, thus the cold-as-frick-ery.
Hang in there! Almost done. =D What are the plans for once high school's done?
Haha, nice. You like it?
Yep. Hopefully, school in Chicago. Otherwise I'll be in Boston or DC. Yay for urban schools!
*severely late, blaming college*
It's pretty good really! The classes are pretty well done (though the teachers get a little overboard sometimes) and I'm getting to know some good folks around here. Not much stuff to do but plenty of people to do it with. Haha!
Well that'll be cool! Good luck! Any ideas what you'll be studying?
