I would like to say something, just a quick little thing:
I have been on the forums since 2017, and in these couple years I've created a close, sibling-like bond with a lot of the amazing people on the forums. I have laughed (a lot), and sometimes I feel sad whenever someone on the forums is going through a hard time. I love reading your stories, and hearing everyone's ideas and opinions about the world. Even though my time on the forums isn't quite done, it has been amazing here.
I personally am having a lot of trouble with my irl friends. It seems like they're talking behind my back, making jokes about me, and just acting nice whenever I see them. (I've overheard them saying I was annoying, boring, and too introverted.)
It annoys me, and makes me unhappy, but I know that I have a lot of friends on the forums who tell great jokes, write great stories, and are overall great people.
Sorry, that was kind of long, but I feel like I don't express my gratitude enough.
