A Proper Farewell to 1up, and Hello to Pixlbit

This is a little personal I did try to keep out some details though, anyways.

When I came to 1up, I came as a shut in. Back in 2008 I hadn't really had any actual contact with any people, let alone any friends since I graduated high school. I met a few of you back then (when I was using a male persona). The prospect of actually having friends again scared me off. Almost two years later I somehow ended up making a few friends playing White Knight Chronicles (despite the game itself being garbage). The fear subsided a little and I returned to 1up, started posting in the clubs, typing blogs. People got to know me they liked me it felt good to have friends again.

I wasn't always a shut in though those of you who know me well enough know I have a past. Most of the blogs I typed back then where wrote from the perspective of a personality I had crafted to help me forget about my past. "No one needs Kay all she does is cause pain to others and herself, no one would miss her" was what I thought to myself.

My friends at 1up didnt seem to think that, however. Many of them liked Kay much more than they did Saki. As I started to be more honest about myself I grew closer to a lot my friends. I wont lie I have (too) many complicated relationships with 1up members. Some of them have been very painful, but in the end I guess they did teach me something. Kay is someone worth loving even if her past nothing to be proud of.

The people I met on 1up taught me to accept myself. I owe the community a lot which is why I'm glad many of you are here. My life wouldn't be the same without you. Though some of the most important people are still missing (i plan on dragging them trying to convince them to come here). In any case here's to continuing our little blogging community here, and maybe even meeting some new friends too :)

Hey Kay,

glad you could make it.  I'm a bit of a recluse who finds solace in this blogging community myself.  Pixlbit has really rolled out the red carpet for us, and it's going to show you can't keep a good community down.

I'm a bit an introvert and an extrovert both tbh. Guess I'm just weird haha

I'm glad you decided to come back to 1UP and Im really glad you decided to come join us at Pixlbit. I hope you can convince your other friends to join too.

I'm glad too and hopefully I can we'll see.

Glad you kept the pink lettering. Feels familiar. come over and warm yourself by the fire. To tell the truth, if this 1UP fire gets any bigger we're going to have to take it outside or risk burning down the house. LOL

Heh it wouldn't feel like 1up without blogs full of profanity, and innuendo typed in pink font would it :P

I am glad most everyone came over here. Will make it much easier to keep up with everyone's blogs. I love your new avatar by the way!

I was sad it wouldn't animate here, but it still looks good lol. The 5th needs to come sooner


02/24/2013 at 04:04 PM

I think it was a milestone when you started to be more honest with yourself. Believe me, that takes courage, Kay. When you think about is this makes you our resident Naoto. lol. She pretended to be a boy for awhile too but she is still awesome! (Just like you are)

Well it is a little different in my case. I just wanted to be someone else, anyone else. Though it turns out it felt better to just be myself. In any case I'm glad to have friends like you. Thanks
EDIT: you should also find yourself an avatar, Ben :P


02/24/2013 at 04:25 PM

I have been avatar-less haven't I? lol. Good point. I'll have to dig up some old photos.

Haha you look better now :P


02/24/2013 at 05:15 PM

I'm beautiful & fabulous!


02/24/2013 at 05:13 PM

I was kind of similiar in that at first I would write about stuff that would appeal to more people, but as I got further along, I realized people would enjoy the stuff I wanted to write even more. Also, kudos for digging anohana!

Well I was more trying please myself but it is just another form of hiding yourself to feel better


02/24/2013 at 05:49 PM

well, I always thought you a pretty cool person

Kayshire Cat

02/24/2013 at 06:51 PM


I try, thanks :)

I had no idea about any of this, but I'm glad you seem to be in a happier space. As a introvert/extrovert hybrid myself, I know how much your mind can function as a detriment while still being a safe haven. That's part of the reason I started blogging. I needed to get out of my head for once. Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know you better and reading your stuff :)

I basically feel like im a person that both hates and loves being around others at the same time. If that makes sense.

Had no idea, but glad you are feeling more confident. I went through a period of depression myself.

And drag 'em on over, everyone's here anyway, they may as well!

i think everyone does mine just lasted way longer than it should have.


02/25/2013 at 08:35 PM

I didn't know you were under another identity on 1UP.  To be honest, I'm was pretty oblivious of what happened around there.  As much time as I spent on 1UP, I didn't know half the stuff that was going on.  

Well..., here's to moving forward and making new friends.  They can kick us out of 1UP, but they can't kick 1UP out of us. :)

Haha well if it's the things that happened with me it's best you don't know :P Well maybe not to that extent, but my relationship with 1up's community has been one hell of a ride in both good ways and bad ways.


02/25/2013 at 08:46 PM

Kay, I always knew you were female, even when you were blogging as Saki. Glad you're feeling more comfortable in your own skin these days. Looking forward to reading more of your blogs.

Kayshire Cat

02/25/2013 at 11:04 PM

Haha i actually get that a lot some people also thought i was trans, but few actually thought i was male lol. In any case thanks I'll keep blogging like i did on 1up here :)


02/26/2013 at 10:35 AM

Hey Kay! Glad to see you here! I am glad to see you're a lot happier as well. It takes me awhile to open up to people sometimes too especially when I started blogging I was super nervous and was worried I would get bashed on completely. That was until I did BaD on 1Up so same as you I owe 1Up a lot for being able to make me more comfortable as well with things too XD

The community is full of a lot of good people. Glad we were able to keep it together :)
