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 :)
