It took an email from DeviantArt to remind me...
I've been here for 12 freaking years, now. I can safely say that I've seen some things here. I've seen some strange things here. But that isn't a bad thing. I've seen ups and downs, and I've experienced a lot of people here. Some of them have even become reliable friends that I could randomly poke whenever. Some of them have become great gamer buds that throw games at me. I've even managed to commission some people, only to discover that they are pure sweethearts and awesome. But I've also had downer moments. I've learned about a few things that were said behind my back. I've discovered some people utterly loathed me, but sat there and smiled in my presence to prevent me from knowing about it. I've been branded as an irredeemable menace, a dick, someone with no chill, etc. All of this and I'm unable to really do anything about it.
I've experienced many ups and downs, wins and losses, pros and cons. But I've endured, and the experience allows me to reflect and learn. So I can be better, for myself and current/incoming friends. Even with Writer's Block, I'll keep going. I still want to be here when I hit my 15th, and beyond.
Thank you for 12 years, and many more to come!
