My thoughts
If you ever wanted to know what I was thinking...Here's your chance.
Finding my way
...I'm currently trying to reintegrate myself back into the Word Games forum. So far, one person has acknowledged my return, and for that, I am grateful. For a nobody like myself, having one person remember me is a blessing in itself.

I can't be the same cheerful, flirty persona I was back then. I could never go back to that mask I wore that I bled under.

I just want to be myself. And that's exactly what I plan to do.

...Or maybe not? Maybe I'll abandon the cause again and truly fade. The future is uncertain and at times, it may not always take me where I want to go, but I will travel down it nonetheless.

Let's begin another journey here. To tales unfolding...

Hello Wingy, saw you in Houkito's WGmon thread, and since I don't know you I did a bit of snooping around and this caught my attention.

About not being recognized in the WG, don't beat yourself up over it. I've been frequenting the WG forum on-off for 7 years now, and when I come back I'm still lucky if people recognize me. It's hard to return when it feels like the mark you have made has been rubbed out and your presence seems to be now unnoticed when those you recognize don't seem to remember you.
Over time, because I have been back and forth to the forum, I have found that it is only the other long time regs that have grown to consistantly remember me. Anyone who hasn't been there before when you were a reg treats you like you are new to the forum. But that's fine and only to be expected. I forget other people too. If you want to talk to other WG'ers that's fine, just reach out and do it; remember, we are all a friendly bunch really. It's just most people wait for someone else to initiate the conversation first, and your profile makes it difficult for most to comment.

But seriously, you are never a nobody. Ever. And no person should make you feel that way. Do keep trying, and find out that being yourself is much more worthwhile that a cheerful facade that eats away at you.
Sorry if I'm being presumptious.
