October 2nd 2013, I made my account here on the RT site.
So around this time 2 years ago, I had just dropped out of college and I wasn't exactly in the best of moods. However, one thing that always got me excited was watching new episodes of RWBY every week (I was hooked on that show since the trailers). I remember reading somewhere that members on the site got to watch it 30 minutes early so naturally I made an account as fast as I could (Maybe if I didn't rush I could have came up with something better than fucking "CrackPanda").
What happened next surprised me. Messages from random people on the site I had never spoken to welcoming me to the community, a surprisingly warm welcome that I absolutely didn't expect. After that, it didn't take me long to become a sponsor so I could watch videos even earlier, but then I stumbled across Sponsor Chat. I thought I'd give it a try and make new friends but I bailed because I was too nervous. (I'm not exactly great at meeting new people.) Around February this year, I tried again. And it worked. I mean I was still nervous as fuck and I constantly felt like I wasn't getting anywhere but I kept trying. And because of that, I've made some awesome friends here, for which I'm thankful.
Which brings me to now. But although I've had this account for 2 years, it feels like I've only been here for 8 months. My one regret is that I didn't stick around the first time, but fuck it. Better late than never, right? Anyway enough rambling.
Here's to 2 years. And here's to many more.
