I already see names I recognize
 
Hi there! It's been a minute. I posted here regularly years ago. The proverbial monkey on my back called social anxiety dragged me kicking and screaming back to the forums. Okay well, maybe it wasn't quite that dramatic, but monkeys can be strong ya know. :afr



Truth is even now, it's still nice to know that other people experience the same or similar things that I do on a daily basis. Last year I had a rough go with anxiety (albeit surprisingly not the social aspect) and now that I'm more or less back to my baseline, I'd like a spot where I can ask specific questions and share curiosities that nobody else can relate to. That, and I tend to be the cat that curiosity killed; I can't not know what SAS is up to these days.



We're all in this together - I mean, kind of. We're all in this separately, in different time zones, on the internet machine. Yeah that's more realistic. :con


I couldn't remember my exact username and password combo and wasn't able to obtain it through other means, but no biggie as this is essentially the same username. Whether anyone remembers me or not, I have no idea. Kinda curious what some people I lost touch with might be up to if they still kick it here. Figure most of them moved on though. Much has happened since I've last been here. I don't know if I'll be staying. I don't even remember how long it's been since I left the site. To be continued, I guess? Everybody loves a good cliffhanger. (Shhh yes they do)

Hey illusion of happiness, welcome back. I remember your username. :b

Hiya, Toad Licker. Who could forget a name like that?? & Thanks!


Sidenote: I feel like you haven't actually licked a toad before, but I'd love nothing more than to hear a hallucination-filled toad-licking story. A girl can dream.

Welcome back. There's still some of us around from back then who never left.

I think I remember seeing your username years ago, I think the last time I was active was around 2015-2016 with my old account, similar to you I got a new PC after my old one died, forgot my username and password, I also came back because of that dreaded monkey on our backs, welcome back.

I'm not positive that I do, but if your join date is correct I'd be leaving around the time you joined (or something like that...have we established how closely my memory resembles scrambled eggs?)

I wasn't on here during those years, but something like 2007-2011 would have been the most active. Yeeeup, I know that makes it a bit of a stretch if I'm looking for old friends.

Anyway, thanks - best of luck on shaking that monkey off. <--Which definitely sounds like innuendo. :tiptoe


I'll see myself out.

I don't doubt that, but Tupac i would put on the top of the totem pole as far as being "real." With the albums "Thug Life Vol. 1" and "Me Against the World" Tupac exemplified what it was like to grow up in tough ghetto violent and desperate surroundings. "Thug Life" which he had tattooed on his chest became his trademark, and rebellious (big word) and disenfranchised troubled youth all saw something in Tupac that represented their own struggle and hopelessness. Tupac sold over 100 million albums after his death, which is only second to Eminem in hip hop sales all time. Eminem has over 140 Million sold. But yes, Tupac represented realness more than anyone at least in the hip hop community, but i would grant you second place on that list.
