Enjoy your years here while you can. I suspect most of you range from years 12-16. In time, things like this just fall out of your life, you know? College, work, family and relationships seem too bully their way pushing good things like these boards out. I had the best time hanging around here. I wish I could just go back to that age and just spend my Satudays browsing boards, modding Pokemon games. Good times.

Imagine a glass jar filled with golfballs as representing your life. Each one represents those important things--college, work, family, relationships, etc. If I asked you if that jar was full, would you say yes?

Now imagine pouring sand into the jar around the golfballs. Each grain represents the little things. Hacking ROMs, roleplaying, PokeCommunity, etc. If you stop trying to pour more in because you think the jar is full with just golfballs, you'll never have room for the little things that keep you sane.

Sup. I'm also 17 but I started browsing forums as a hobby when I was 14. I still retain it as a hobby and I imagine it'll stay that way for a while. I've always been good at balancing schoolwork with free time, and I still do it to this day. Almost out of High School though so the good days are nearly over.

I think there'll always be room for PC in one's life, even if it's just for a minute a day. Hopefully you'll spend at least a little bit of your time here now that you've returned and made a post, even if it's no more than once a week. Despite it being over two years, both the familiar faces from long ago or newer members will always welcome you back!

PC is one of the things that keeps me sane throughout school as well. But I agree with with the fact that you should always do your best to make room for the smaller things that help you take a break for life, even if it's for a brief moment. Otherwise I admittedly would've lost some of my sanity years ago. xD;

So yeah, I'll take it you'll be popping in again now, yes? I rejoined after your time so I don't remember you, but that'll change now that we've met. :D
