Default BI-versary rambling

Click the image to open in full size.

Yup. That's right. I just remembered that I've been on BI for ten years today. So now I feel slightly nostalgic and want to ramble about my life.

When I joined on October 30, 2008, I was very young (as most people probably were at that time.) As in, not even double digits yet. Yikes. If you've ever looked at my old posts and wondered "why", well, that's why.

For three years after I joined, I was super active on BI. I posted tons of pointless threads, wrote like 30 different stories on the Writings! section, joined clubs, played games, and was fairly active in the Trading Den. I loved this site and looked forward to going on it every day. I also had a few friends; my strongest memory is of CuddleCub11 who I would PM daily (back when the PM function actually worked, RIP) and we would write stuff together. This place was really like a home.

In late 2011, I started getting more busy with school and I made it into the highest level of my community choir so I didn't really have time for BI anymore. For the next few years I would log in every couple of months. Then, January 2015 came and I found a shocking e-mail in my inbox one morning and my first thought was to rush back here and I haven't left since. Now I'm in university and technically way busier than I was when I left BI back in 2011 but for some reason I keep logging back in whenever I'm procrastinating or bored in lectures I guess BI will always be a connection to my childhood, and it's nice that 10 years later I'm still here even though everything else has changed so so much in 10 years. Even though this place is a ghost town, now it's still nice to come back to it (also the couple people that still log in are awesome, shoutout @my loyal servant Algebra I love talking with you and you're super cool and the main reason I come back on tbh)

ANYWAYS sorry for rambling and congrats if you read all that. Maybe I'll make a cringe post compilation of my 2008-2010 posts later
