Here goes...
I can't remember much from the ages of 9 to 11 so bear with me on that one.

-Joined at age 9
-kept myself to myself for about a month
-BEST. CHRISTMAS. EVER. (got my iPod Touch)
-Turned ten (it's good to be double-figures)
-Not much happened
-Turned eleven
-Bought Minecraft (which has consumed my life ever since, pretty much)
-Basic easy end-of-primary-school-exams (full marks on all the English tests, slightly lower marks on the others)
-End of primary (elementary) school! It's time to go out into the world! (Sorta.)
-Realised I'm totally addicted to Minecraft
-Secondary school starts
-Almost all my friends went to the other local school so I have only 2 friends at the start of Y7
-One of those two friends turns out to be a total jackass, he starts blanking me and almost convinces my aforementioned friend to blank me as well
-I make a couple of new friends who are both geeks like me
-Teachers are total pains
-Start learning Spanish and Latin (both are cool)
-I somehow manage to get through the autumn term, got Skyrim for Christmas
-Turned twelve
-First crush
-TWO UNREMARKABLE TERMS
-Bordering on the edge of popularity
-Summer starts! (yay!)
-Am introduced to Town of Salem, a web-browser version of Mafia which is quite a bit more complex and challenging and I love it.
-Spain. (four mosquito bites on my arse)
-Joined Steam, which is probably the best thing in existence.
-The following day, bought Terraria through Steam. Finished in a couple of weeks.
-Started playing TF2, which makes all other first-person shooters look crap.
-Y8 starts. I'm ill-prepared for another year of mind-numbing classes.
-Residential trip with school
-Second crush
-Today.

Recently became a moderator on a small Zoo Tycoon 2 forum I frequented. Warned a few users for post-farming just so they could get the downloadable content for themselves.

I'm not hinting about wanting to be a mod here, as we have plenty right now, but it would be nice.

HAHAHAHAHAHA MY LIFE KEEPS GETTING MORE RIDICULOUS IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE
-I'M AWARE I LAST POSTED HERE LAST MONTH BUT!!!!
-Show opens, suddenly realizes that I and one of my best friends should totally trick the freshmen ushers into thinking we're dating
-friend is all for this, is really good at it for some reason
-freshmen could absolutely care less, upperclassmen start trying their damnedest to make it Actually A Thing
-I'm not even kidding someone pulled me aside for twenty minutes
-
some point along the line I start seriously thinking about it; I want to bash my head on the wall immediately after because come on Flora seriously????? Feelings-with-a-capital-F don't ever end well
-eventually the army of hospitality folks basically shove him at me yelling ASK HER OUT which I somehow did not know about until like two dates in
-dates happen???? apparently this was a very long time coming
-slowly starts to realize that the freshmen - at least some of them - either thought we were dating already and just didn't mention it or figured out that the two of us are total idiots and just kept their mouths shut because it was funny
-everyone is flipping their shit


what has my life become

This combined with so many of those sites shutting down made me upset. I felt so distant from the Pokémon fandom because I didn't play the games much anymore; it was too expensive to invest in Black/White or Black2/White2. I thought having a website would help, but it caused more harm to me than good. I had wished that I made a website in the early 2000s. Those were the glory years of fansites.

I'm a lot more extroverted than I ever was before. I also speak my mind rather than hide my opinions. I am a much better person than I ever was a kid.
I'm a proud Christian \o/
I also learned that it is nice to hear other people's opinions on things. I used to always shun people for not doing "the right thing" or stuff like that. Life was very black and white before college. I have a lot of worldly views on things. It is amazing.

I joined well before vB, 2006 I *think*? I was Little Miss Nobody back in the old forums. Hell, I don't think I was even a Miss back then. I had just moved from Mew's Hangout (god rest its soul).

I like to think I was a hell of a spriter, hell I thought I was hot shit. But yeah. Spent most of my teenage days on paint, spriting god knows how many things.

The move to here happened, and I was proud to have my name on pinned posts, namely the first Spriter's Showcase, as well as the thing. Most of my focus was my art, which I got good at, considering I barely had any idea what layers were. This also spanned my weird weeaboo-but-not phase, where I didn't necessarily worship Japan and all that came with it, but I went by the name Rin. I still even have some of my old sprites from back then, depicting me with kinda spiky blue hair. Think the Bird Keeper from R/S/E.

Major milestone was when I was 15/16. I met Kim; I think her user was either Torchic or something along those lines. But basically, we started a long distance relationship: I was in South Wales, she was in California. Around this time, I kinda figured I wasn't all dude. But I thought it was normal puberty stuff, I mean everyone was talking about sex, right? Mine was just a skip away from it.

So we went out for six months, and since she's 18 when I hit 16, she needed to focus on college and we broke up. I remember crying for months on end. I kept our messages on here, until vb got deleted. Lost all of that.

Then Sixth Form happened, and I kinda found my stride socially. Spent less and less time here, and less time on my art. Then Uni happened, and I left. Well, pretty much left. I'd come back every few months just to see what's up, but my life pretty much became a blur.

THEN the fun stuff happened. I realised I needed to come out, so I came out as a girl. Was taken very well, and moved on from there.

I've now finished University, working as a freelance web developer/illustrator, with a stint as Audio-Visual Manager for stage shows and films locally. All the while visiting this place less and less, as life took over. Last time I visited was New Year 2015.

But yeah. I've moved on from spriting, but still have the tools and habits I had when drawing stuff. Just on a different style. I've also moved on from having an online persona of that Bird Keeper guy, to actually drawing myself as how I look, glasses and dark skin included; all the things I used to hate about myself.

Fun fact: I've kept the online handle Grimdour all throughout.

Anything before I first joined this forum is but a distant memory. It contributed much to my personality, my woes, and my happiness in the days I was active.

Since then, I have improved much. Therapy, medication, the general increase of maturity in aging, and having somebody who truly loves and appreciate me by my side have helped to lessen the more negative edges of my personality. A lot has happened, but I'm glad I'm where I am now.

It's been a loooong time since I've been on TCoDf, but I still visit the main site every day. I got a lot better at art in the years that have passed, and I can kinda thank my beginnings as a sprite artist for my current style. It's how I learned that shading outlines is important, after all!

I think I've also matured a lot... I remember some times where I've been really mean and/or pushy to people from here and I really regret it. Younger me went through a lot of hard times, stress and medical difficulties, but man! Kai, Fortooate, if you ever read this then I gotta give you guys a proper apology sometime.

Let's see... I attempted to go to college for art but that didn't work out, due to my diabetes and diabetes-related anxieties, not to mention ridiculously long taxi journeys at ungodly hours. Needless to say, I don't look back on those years fondly, ahaha!

Things are generally better for me now, I think. Our financial situation isn't that great and there's a lot of days where I'm so ill or anxious that all I can do is sleep, but I'm trying my best. I'm getting a lot of commissions done and I feel like I've become way more responsible and chill about things.
