A walk back through history

Someone on Discord - I assume most of you know what that is, but if not, it's a chat client a la Skype mixed in with IRC - asked me a few minutes ago when I started using the internet. I wasn't sure of the exact date, and I'm still not positive, since I know I lurked for some time before I made an account anywhere. What I did remember, though, is that this place was my first ever account on an internet forum or anything like it. I decided to log back in, since I still had my account info saved, and. Wow. It's incredibly strange, looking back at who I used to be.

I registered ten years ago as of yesterday. I feel comfortable telling you all this now: I was eight years old. I still remember my first post, or series of them, rather. I made something like... a quadruple post? Complete with a hotlinked image of a cat. I showed it to my brother immediately after and he explained internet forum etiquette to me, which was very sorely needed. Just skimming my old posts makes it so obvious how much I've changed, even in the superficial ways (my grammar was less bad than I expected, but my way of presenting myself was certainly worse). It's really nice to see that this forum has a bit of life to it, even after all these years. I've seen many forums rise and fall in the intervening time, and it's heartwarming to see that so many of the old users I remember are still alive and well here.

To say a little bit about what I've done in the past decade: I'm presently a freshman in a good STEM college on the east coast. I'm a computer science major, though I did seriously consider psychology. I've also gone through a great deal with mental health, much of which is less than pleasant to talk about, but I've been doing a lot better lately, and I've made a lot of dear friends, both on and off the internet. Also, I think I've grown to hate homework even more now than I did when I was here, which is honestly quite impressive.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this. Still, I thought it was only right to say something, after logging into this account for the first time since 2015. I don't know if or when I'll be back, but I hope you're all doing well, wherever you may be, and I wish you only the best. Cheers. :)

I'll be here at least once every decade.

I am sorry, but, do you have ADHD?


Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
