    Default Back from a 13 year absence!

    Hello All!

    It feels so strange to reintroduce myself like this, but I am back after a 13 year absence!

    I had pretty much forgotten about this account until now. A couple of days ago when I was clearing my inbox, I saw an email from AF (from 2014!) and I just had to check it out. Only then I remembered that I made an account here more than a decade ago. Imagine my surprise at finding out that this place is still active!

    The last time I logged in here was in 2008. I was 16 then, and my goodness did I write some cringey stuff back then haha. I don't remember why I left, though.

    If you look at my profile, you'll see what I mean. But, I want to keep that old stuff in my profile as a memento of the good old days when I had fun discovering anime, manga, online forums and chatrooms.

    God it feels so strange to remember those days, all those memories flooding back in. Anyway, I don't want to write a blog. I feel good to be back and feel that nostalgia hit again.
    Thank you for your time.

    So what have you learned in 16 years?

    I hope you plan to be an active contributor. We need those.

    If I had to summarise all the things I've learned:
    - everything is impermanent, accept change however they come and choose your attitude towards them wisely
    - people come and go, memories and moments are to be reflected upon and learned from; don't use them for escapism
    - you're only human, life can be absurd so don't hate yourself for not getting things perfect
    - develop inner strength, courage and confidence

    And don't worry I'll be contributing ��

    Nice. Did you bring anyone else with you? Cause this place is about as populated as Gilligan's Island. We need more.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    Welcome back! Sometimes we disappear, and sometimes we do appear again, but indeed, here we are, right?

    Welcome back! In 2008 I had barely turned 11 years old and didn't even know what internet forums were. I wonder if I'll be back here in 2033 or something
    I have an Anilist now:
