hmmm I was just having a sentimental moment tonight and decided to log on smogon forums for te first time in how many billion months. Anyway I started thinking about when I first joined smogon and that was in mid 2007, and I started playing competitive pokemon a little bit earlier than that. Anyway, I can't believe it's been half a fucking decade since I've met like Earthworm, Gouki, Jrrrr, Jabba, Aldaron, BlueKirby, Light, Colin and so many others on shoddy battle. And then in late 2007 or early 2008 I joined IRC and became a regular and met like zerowing, matamato, chronicles, avatarst, brain, raikage, darkie, moot, fishy, dak, thunda, shade, fishin, captkirby, max, jumpluff, jackal, shiv you know all the old #space and #fluodome people (I can't remember everyone on the top of my head now I'm sorry) and whatnot and just wow I was only 14/15 years old too, what the fuck right? Holy shit I feel so old and sentimental and just omg time flies by so fast! I was barely in HS back then and fast track to present and I'm a quarter through my uni degree. to be honest, I sometimes wonder how you all are. Like, I disappear for long period of times and then everyone else does too, and I do think of you guys from time to time. "It's only the internet" as everyone would say but it isn't cause you guys are real friends of mine too. Even though we might never talk, I still do get curious as to what's happening in your lives, and I do love you guys 4eva. anyways, hope yall doing well. Stay cool. all the vets probably think I'm crazy for posting this considering you guys have been around for a fucking decade or some crazy ass shit but still, I couldn't help getting extremely sentimental tonight. p.s. honourable mention to Gouki who has put up with the bullshit that spews out of my mouth basically every day since early 07. Luv ya so much. You're just bloody fantastic ok? Thanks for listening to everything from depressing shit to the most stupid remarks just for the sake of being stupid. p.p.s. is this gonna get locked? :| edit: p.p.p.s. I love all my brofessionals and ocn-ers and alpha ruiners too sorry for forgetting some of you LIKE SCOFIELD I LOVE YOU SO MUCH YOU HAVE NO IDEA and also some of the vets of smogon I had the pleasure to back in the days I was active in #smogon like vincent, dm, teifu, huy etc.
