5 Years

Posted July 30th, 2013 at 09:53 AM by Mr. Avocado

So, I've been here for 5 years and wow how much it has changed. I was 10 when I joined, the clans were about and I was a complete nub. I think it took me 3 years to start improving as a member. I look back at conversations I had with other members and I think to myself how rude, annoying and arrogant I was, though there are times where I can still be those things now. I've seen several people leave and join PC, the good and the bad and when you take a look at the staff now compared to 5 years ago, it's almost wholly changed and there are both pros and cons to that. Over the 5 years, I have made many friends, but you can't make many friends without making enemies. I've even lost friends that are still on PC now. See, I'm never too good at first impressions, and this is reflected in my inability to start talking to someone new. Geoff knows of this really well, we had a very "negative" relationship, and I don't know what happened, but we talk now, as friends.

PC has made me a better person I think, I have learned so much here, and I don't think I would be the guy I am now if it wasn't for PC. A lot of you have been incredibly helpful and friendly to me and I appreciate that, even in situations where I would have ignored myself, others didn't. There are moments, however, in my early years where I wasn't treated nicely by particular staff members who shall remain anonymous because, if they remember, I don't think they'd want to be highlighted. But you guys helped me through that.

During my time here, I have been on leave a fair few number of times, the worst being the most recent. I really regret that, and I apologize to whom it may concern, but I couldn't avoid that, I encountered problems and life can be hard like that sometimes. Anyway, I'm 15 now and I see myself writing another blog in 5 more years, I don't plan on leaving PC. My first 5 years has been very interesting and I only plan on improving as a member and becoming a bigger asset to the community.

    Well, Happy PCversary
    I know I'm a total stranger, but I hope to see you around PC for yet another 5 years simply because you're a piece of this great PC puzzle and you're important to the completion of it in your own way
