Yeah, so… It’s been about two and a half to three years since I’ve shown my goofy face around here. And as soon as I even begin to type out www.rpgc… etc, I realize… this is something totally new to me. I am not the same person that spent hours/days/weeks at a time lurking on these very boards years ago. So much about me has changed, so many of my plans shot down or changed. My life is completely different than I ever would have imagined… And this is about the time that you either find a new thread to read because you really don’t give a hoot, or you expect a long story/list/blah of my life the past few years… in good time, my friends, in good time.
Also, I suppose you can consider this a “Hi, I’m new here” thread, because I see lots of new people… But suprisingly enough, a lot of familiar ones, too…
Anyhow. Back in the day I was roughly the epitomy of fat loser nerd boy. Ya know, the glasses, pimples, computer knowledge, shyness, ugly as sin, social anxiety, bi-polar, extra 70 pounds, and whatever else that usually comes with that specific title. I had a friend, and that was it. Then I found RPGc, and it really opened up my life, as corny as that may sound. Working on the FFIV ET shrine, I was doing something that I loved, that other people appreciated, and I met a lot of great people. That’s probably a good a place to start as any. I realized that not everyone sucks so much and hated me. Just the assbags that populated my high school. Social Awakening.
I was scheduled to become a metalhead/rivethead. Music has been my main source of entertainment and release for as long as I can remember. My first girlfriend changed all of that. (By the way, my first girlfriend didn’t show up in my life until I was 18) We were together for two years almost on the dot. We grew into Emo/Screamo kids together. She was a big influence on my changes.
Anyway, in the past few years, I’ve lost 70 pounds, got rid of the glasses, managed to somehow turn into some sort of extremely hot guy (according to the ladies around me), I currently have 15 piercings, lots of sex, and my music preference has changed… And I transformed from a nerd to a geek. It really doesn’t seem like a whole lot laid out in a list like so, but… it’s amazing. And of course there are a lot of small changes, but…
There was supposed to be some sort of meaning to all of this, but I think I forgot it.
I decided to check this place out again because I recently acquired Trillian, and I felt the need to hook it up with a nifty IRC channel that doesn’t suck, and the RPGc channel was what popped into my head first.
This weekend I hung out with a lot of hard-line punks, and it only made me realize just how much of an emo kid I am. But it’s alright, I wouldn’t change a thing.
:enguard: But I suppose I will never forget my roots…
