Hey Guys, This is Cloud28 here. I am sure no one on the forums remembers me anymore, but I just want to drop by again to say hello to the few people that might remember my name. The last time I posted and visited the forums regularly was probably back in late 05. So roughly 5 years have passed, and what happened?
FMA was the series that really got me into Anime, and so I found www.fullmetal-alchemist.com. When I discovered this website, I was in high school. Now I am heading back to my last year in University
Now looking back, this forum has really given me a lot. It was the first time I ever been on a internet forum, and the first time I really got into Anime. I met great people, and I remember having a great time here. The Penny For Your Thought thread comes to mind, and there were a lot others. I was grateful that no one ever flamed me as an anime noobie, or any thing else.
Why am I posting here again? Well, Only recently I discovered that there is a new series of FMA airing, and suddenly these lost memories of my time spent on this forum began to come back :S. I guess the reason for me to come back and visit is really because of nostalgia, but more importantly,deep down I regretted not saying goodbye when I left. I left the forums back in 05/early 06 because of some "personal reasons" (Don't you love ambiguity?); and those same personal reasons have changed my life completely. Literally overnight I was no longer that immature 14 year old hanging around the computer all day, and I became someone dealing with tremendous stresses of real life. I wasn't ready to grow up yet, but I had to. Now after 5 years, I think I have changed a lot, mostly for the better; but after looking at my old forum posts, I kinda misses the old "me".
In the end, I just want to say thank you to all the mods and the admin who maintained the site for this long. Because of you guys, I was able to find my old posts/threads and rediscover pieces of the "old me" that I have long forgotten and lost.
I think I should end my late night senseless self rant here, I apologize if this post doesn't make any sense or just seem crazy talk; I felt like I just need to get it out of my system.
One last thing, I wanted to say Hi to a few people that I sort of remember: RizeBabe, Omakase Shimasu, LeMonkey, Kokoro no Hana, and all the mods (I think I remember Quistis88, and xrninja), there is a ton of other people which I can't remember the names
PS: You know what I think it was too weird to post this, moderators: if this seems to be too inappropriate, please delete this; and man after looking through my old forum posts, I was such an immature teenager
