I don't think I would have matured if I didn't join here. I just laugh at my younger self now, but feel sorry for anyone who tried to put up with me back then.

I think this site has actually changed me for the better and it has made me love the cute critters known as Chao a lot more because I could find out more information about them, and I'm a very curious person who seeks knowledge when it comes to things I like.

I think that certain aspects of my life would have turned out quite differently if I had never joined CI. Admittedly, I would have likely still decided to go to college, became interested in art, and still spent a lot of time playing video games. However, I would have missed out on a lot of the friendships that I made here. I still talk to several of my CI friends, and I've actually been dating one of them (Truesilva) for the past four years now. I'm really glad that I joined CI because I have a lot of great memories from this place.

I'd be a totally different person.


First and centrally, I wouldn't have joined that Pokemon Role Play that I was in with Shadria/Zero/Myro/etc. I wouldn't have befriended the people I came to call "The Group", I wouldn't have failed them as a human being, and I wouldn't have grown afterwards. I wouldn't know just how deep-seated some of my issues are, I wouldn't know how cruel I'm capable of being, and I'd still be as naive as I once was. I'd still be a self-entitled little brat trying to play misery poker with everyone I met simply because I honestly didn't understand that everybody else had a story and most of theirs were sad ones too. I wouldn't have stumbled onto Rain and gotten two of my friends addicted to it, Snivy wouldn't have realized she was trans and would possibly still be stuck in her old strategy of making friends by molding herself to them, and because this got me back into Pokemon and that's the main reason I became friends with, my girlfriend would not only be a dude but not even my friend. Possibly.

I'd also be a lot less leftist...I think? Honestly I'm not sure whether that's from my time on the internet, my IRL friends, Liberal Crime Squad or some mix of a few of those.

If I never would've joined CI, I would be even worse than I was from 2012-late 2015. The COD community, school kids, and my views on certain things at the time would've eventually eaten me up, causing me to be the biggest **** of all time. So if I never would've come here, never getting corrected or scolded for my crap or any of that, I'd probably either be dead (suicide) from all the toxic people at school or being that edgy high school student who's always suspended or in fights.


Today (correct if I'm wrong)I can still be a lil' annoying and immature at the wrong times but I'm getting there. Anyway, CI gave me the key to my future and happiness. My friends. I love them and I'm forever grateful to this place for uniting us over the years.

I don't know Nova, this website has a habit of making furries out of people. Even people who don't outright dip themselves into the subculture wind up having animal OC's as representation.

To be honest, there are only like 1% of people who don't become furry after having Sonic the Hedgehog as part of their childhood.

I avoided it somehow.
