Allowing Neggy to let this bet commence is weird. I can’t status update or anything. It feels like I’m detached from the world. Recently I started thinking about how things were 10 years ago. Before Facebook. Hell…I think Friendster was still around. Myspace was the big thing. I can remember being 19 going on 20. My car was a 1991 Toyota Camry LE v6. I was well on my way to becoming an otaku, though Mae stopped that from happening. Sort of.
What would 19-year old me say to me now?
Hang on, I just beat Sakura’s World tour in Street Fighter Alpha 3.
It’s a strange feeling to let go of all my outgoing connections. Throughout my whole life, I was always the one that made my presence known, for better or worse. I was never content to sit on the sidelines, I loved talking and being around people. I suppose that lead to me to being who I am now.
Being forced to sit on the sidelines watching….this is one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to do. And I took a pretty nasty beating a couple days ago.
I guess what I’m most afraid of is people forgetting that I exist. I think that goes for most people, actually.
