i feel like even though i joined towards the beginning of the du era, i've been here forEVER.
maybe it's just because since i've been here for a while, i'm noticing new people more...? so it just seems like there are all these new people, when really, people have been joining all along and i just haven't noticed...?
but i can still think of people who were here when i first got here, and now it's like they've fallen off the face of the earth.
compared to a lot of people on here, i am still relatively new. yeah, i haven't been here since the df started. and, yeah, i did jump on the afi bandwagon just when decemberunderground came out.
i'm not going to lie and say that i was this really cool twelve year old who listened to afi during the sts era (um, like some people...). i was more interested in shopping and having sleepovers.
but the fact that i have even been on this board for the past two years makes me feel good because i usually get bored of stuff really really fast. i'm talking a matter of weeks. so two years is good. i hope i can say that again in another two years, i hope i never outgrow afi.
i was just looking at someone else's profile (i won't say who), because i saw their post in someone else thread in the "introductions" forum. and i don't remember what they had posted, but i thought "man, how can this person be saying that, didn't they just join?!" and i looked that their profile, and they had joined over a year ago, and i still remember their introduction thread. that was before that forum even existed.
and i was like, well, they joined a year ago....and then i was like, crap, i joined even more than a year before THAT.
it's like everything has come full circle, and i'm STILL just here watching it all happen.
and the other day i was talking to my dad about the boards, and honestly, it was so much simpler back when i joined. if i joined today, i think i would get too confused and just leave.
i never think of posting in this blog, but i did for this because i was thinking about my time on the boards...i bet the next time will be this december when i have my 2 year df anniversary...
just wait, i'll get really verclemped over that one... ; )
