When I joined, I was only in the 7th grade. I was obnoxious and obsessive, but I seemed to fit in pretty well here because you guys made a spot for me. Over time, I chilled out, sometimes lapsing back into my younger ways, but never for too long. Overall, I feel like this place really helped me develop into who I am.
You gave me a name that I respond to now without a second thought, you gave me comfort and support through my weird depressive episodes that I always tried to smile through, and you've given me more friends than any guy could ask for.
Like I said, I can't believe that it's really been ten years. I've watched all of you guys grow up alongside me and developed a close bond with many of you and I can't begin to thank you all enough for helping me grow and become who I am now. You guys all mean the world to me and I can't imagine what my life would be like without you.
So all I have to say now is:
Here's to ten more years.
