Honestly, so much has changed since I was such a cringe teen constantly butting heads with any ideals members would have here out of sheer spite and cynicism. Here I am now as a First Class Petty Officer in the US Navy, and it has been such a wild ride so far. I've seen, learned, and grown so much, and it's incredible to see this forum haven still active. I wonder if anyone remembers me. Probably not, but I'll still haunt the old threads as a reminder of where I came from in my early online years.
