» 6th Anniversary Blog
I was trying to sleep last night, unsucessfully, looking at my cell phone. I noticed the date was now Dec. 9th. Sadly, I knew instantly that it was my Rage-iversary, after all these years. Haha.

Well, since there is no latest blogs list anymore, I doubt anyone will ever read this. It saddens me that although the site is "active", as far as contributing goes, the community is dead, and nothing is being done to remedy it. If I knew how, I would do so. Hopefully it will return someday and people will enjoy the site like I once did.


A lot has changed in six years. Well, a lot has just changed in my last year, let alone six. I am not the silly immature little teenage boy anymore, desperate for attention. Now I am a silly adult, embarking on my future, still desperate for attention, but I am able to control myself. Haha.

In the past two years, I went from high school, to college in South Dakota, and now I am at a new school, transferring to a school in the Twin Cities in my native land. So happy about that.

As a result, I now share a room with three stoners, all very different, but I wouldn't trade them for.. okay, I would trade them for even better roommates, but whatever. I get along with them!

Next semester, I won't be here, but studying from January to May in Washington D.C., my dream. I am also very scared, very nervous, and full of doubt. But I know it's the right thing to do and could change my life.

I know I am not active as I once was. I'm not sure if I even posted 100 times this year in the forums, whereas I posted that much in a day back in my heydey. I really miss the people here, Dorkus, Kelly, and Nate in particular, although if I didn't say your name, that doesn't mean I miss you any less. The community was great - from the political debates between KingJohn23 and others, from "coffee talk" with Ryan, Cindy, and that crew, to the trolling of tshee. It was great. I spend a great deal of time on the site, to the point that I am still here, hanging on, six years later.

I am afraid I am going to finally fall off though, like so many others. Is that a bad thing? Not necessarily. I am barely here the way it is, and I have life to deal with. But the people here have took up about 30 percent of my life, and I guess I feel like the site is integrated with myself.

On a productivity note, it's probably for the best the site isn't so active, because I can't get work done the way it is, so if the site was still booming, I'd probably be so sucked in that I'd never get work done.


I hope everyone is doing well, past, present, and future. I just want to let everyone know that I am alive, I am okay, and I will be doing fine. I hope you all do the same. And I look forward to our next conversation, long or short, and you guys here will always be an important part of my childhood.

-Andrew

Welcome back home. Although I wouldn't call myself "active" anymore, I still pop in once in a while to see what's up. It does make me a little sad how the community ended up here (as well as Community on television). Six years sure is a long time and I think that's something to be proud of. Imagine where we will be in another six.

Do you have a facebook or a twitter? You should really add me. It's sad not knowing what you guys are doing for five months at a time.

Anyway, have fun in DC!

Would you have ever thought you would have lasted this long? Well I never thought I would come back but here I am. I was exactly like you. I posted here soo much. I was so immature but I learned from it. Life kinda took me by surprised after high school. I graduated almost 3 years ago and I feel like I haven't done anything with my life. I did go to community college but because I needed money I had to take a break. I don't know what life has in store for me but I'm taking things 1 step at a time. Anyways, I'm just rambling now.

I wish there would be like a TVRage reunion or something. Seeing this site get any visitors really suck. If only the new ones would know how active it was back then.

Well anyways, I like your blog. Don't even dare leave now that I came back.
