Feeling Digital X's pain. Not my kidneys, but a few years ago, my lungs were in such a poor state that I could barely run for a minute. Getting fat didn't help either. All better now though, and not fat.
I like coming back here once in a while. I joined the forum ten years ago, I was 14. I spent most of my adolescence here to be honest. The people here helped me through some tough times. Made some good friends that I don't talk to as much as I did before. Coming here reminds me how far I've come in life since I joined. Finishing middle school, getting through high school and having some of the best time of my life, dating the girl that I cried and posted so much about in the previous generations of this thread. Breaking up with her. Finding new love. Losing said love. College. Graduating with a Physics BSc. I can't remember his username, but there was someone here that was an important factor on that choice.
Now I'm finishing my MSc. Going to turn in my thesis in September. Nanorobotics for cancer treatment.
Just writing this post makes me remember everything that I had, that I lost and that I want to achieve.
Still... Every time I come back, I notice that the forum is... Dead. That saddens me more than it should.
Had good times here. Awesome times. The Battle Royale threads. A new thread every minute. Meet the Archknight. And so much more... In retrospective, the internet made me meet some awesome people. Mainly forums.
But online forums are dying and I can't help but feel that a part of my adolescence dies with them.
Enough with the rant, thanks for reading.
