Back Again!

Post by Drew » Thu May 10, 2012 6:47 am

Hey All!

I've been MIA for a while around here, and it really saddens me because I essentially grew up on this forum. I joined when I was probably about 12 or 13, and spent so much time flinging around arrogant bullshit and getting into flame wars that I'm embarrassed by it to this day.

BUT, throughout all the E-whipping's and my inability to concede another's point or even argue with rationality or logic, I've become a much better person. I really do owe a lot of who I am as a person to my days spent on this forum in my formative years.

I'm not even sure if the people who would remember me are still around, but I'll give a small life update anyway.

I'm now 23, and since I've been gone, I went to college and got two degrees, summa cum laude, in both Sociology and Philosophy. Getting such a well rounded liberal arts education has really changed my perspective on things and made me a more educated individual.

Currently, I'm in my first year of law school (well, my last final is Friday the 11th, so I'm soon to be a 2L!) and I'm absolutely loving it. It's everything I've always wanted and more, and I can tell that's not the case for a lot of my fellow students.

That being said, I look forward to joining this community again and hopefully being able to provide some worthwhile input and start some good discussions. I miss you guys and I'm glad to be back!

Dude, that is the best thing I ever read, and a not so subtle reminder that this forum should never ever shut down...

Glad to have you back Bro, and congratulations on living life..!

I can't say much at this time, but I too find it refreshing to have you back in the fold.

I, too, have gone over a lot of old threads (most of this happened before I came back and posted this) but one of the main people who, at the time, I thought was just out to get me and I couldn't comprehend the points they were making was RIM himself.

So happy to have you back in the fold, and I look forward to actually having discussions about shit this time around haha!

A year to the day, funny enough, I return simply to wish our dedicated and often-thankless leader a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

My last final for what has been the toughest/best year of my life is this Monday, so I'll have to return to the books until then, but I look forward to getting some discussions going over the summer!

(Apparently I no longer have access to the email tied to the "Drew" username, surely that can be fixed administratively so I can get my password sent to a new email, yes?)
